The following polls have been added to the model:
Nanos' 10/1-3 national poll (national results only; current weight among national polls: 24%)
Mainstreet's 9/29 Berthier--Maskinongé poll
For a full list of included polls, see previous Projection posts.
The Nanos poll shows a large move towards the Liberals. My guesstimate of the single-day Nanos numbers (not used directly in the projection) suggests that this is due to a very Tory-friendly 9/30 sample being dropped, and that this shift may reverse tomorrow when a very Liberal-friendly 10/1 sample is dropped. However, for now, this shift moves the projection significantly.
Mainstreet has a very encouraging riding poll for the NDP, showing Ruth Ellen Brosseau in the lead in Berthier--Maskinongé. However, the Bloc candidate is still very much in the mix. Adjusting the projection halfway towards the poll results in a rough tie.
Finally, this projection also incorporates the sub-regional breakdowns from yesterday's Campaign Research poll. That led to updates to adjustments for ON (those for QC and MB/SK are unchanged).
After being momentarily helped by "blackface" and Greta, the Greens are now at their lowest in months, dropping below their mid-September level. If this continues, they may fail to beat their 6.78% result from 2008.
