Although I usually vote Liberal, in this election I'm voting strategically for the NDP. In this riding they are THE MOST LIKELY to defeat the CON incumbent. I recommend everybody to vote strategically.

Note: I've changed the expiry date of this poll to end the day before the election so as not to influence people on election day.

Strategic voting is a must if we truly want a non-con government. The present "Winner-Takes-All" voting system forces us to do so, as all votes in a riding not going to the winner are lost. And in almost all cases the winner has less than 50% of the votes, meaning the opinions of the majority of citizens of the riding are not being represented in Ottawa

I really wish this poll were true. You say you've done your own poll, but you haven't...you taken the pulse of those who hate/dislike the cons, and those cons who believe they should take the time to debunk you. I hope I'm wrong BTW. Canadian watching from S.Korea.

I AM CANADIAN! I LEFT THE COUNTRY! Am I less Canadian than you because you live there Steve? NO! My name is George and I AM CANADIAN!!!

Hi George:

Thanks for taking the time to write your comment on here. We'll just won't know who is more accurate until May 2nd. The national polls compile their information by phoning people who have landlines. Since the majority are now elderly, who tend to vote Conservative, their votes would be right leaning.

I've tried to circulate this poll as much into various circles as possible and since Conservatives love to slam the left, I would suspect, they've had as much opportunity as anyone else to register their votes.

Like you, I hope that we'll see significant change on Monday and we can wrestle our democracy back from this despot. After that we need to get busy for a more acceptable voting system than this outdated, First Past the Post, system.

Regards,

Gerry

Hi Gerry, Please don't assume that us old farts with land lines are right-leaning conservatives. I have been voting NDP for for almost 40 years now and am overjoyed that so many people have made the decision to vote in this election. Thank you Rick Mercer...thanks also to social media for sparking this little revolution!

The champagne is chilling......Wendy

Hi Wendy. I'm an old fart myself and only once voted Conservative, when they still were Conservative. This time I voted strategically for the NDP and have worked very hard for the local candidate to help him win.

I'm fully aware that not all elderly vote Conservative, but by pollsters own admission, they do make up the largest Conservative vote.

Good for you for voting for change and cheering on the young folks for getting engaged in this election. Together we'll be able to recover our democracy.

Enjoy election day and thanks for caring about our Canada.

Regards,

Gerry

I will vote NDP for the first time. Southwest Nova riding is one of the closest in the country and regardless of no twitters or back and forth across the country, there will be. I am afraid for my country under Harper; I was a conservative when conservative meant fiscally responsible but with social and progressive justice, so I am forced into the other camp. Jack Layton is working hard and is on message and he won't get away with throwing the coins into the street.

Last straw was the ex-cop and Layton in the Sun bordello story.
