Projection Update: Nanos 10/5-7, Innovative 9/17-24

The following polls have been added to the model:
Nanos' 10/5-7 national poll (national results only; current weight among national polls: 26%)
Innovative's 9/17-24 national poll (current weight among national polls: 3%)
For a full list of included polls, see previous Projection posts.

Update Oct. 8: Corrected typo in CON popular vote. (Numbers in the blog's left and right columns were correct.)

The Nanos tracker has the Tories up and the NDP down. If one were to "guesstimate" the daily Nanos numbers, one would conclude that the dropped sample, 10/4, was a poor Tory and good NDP day, so these changes are not surprising. Because the model doesn't use these guesstimates, the projection does move slightly toward the Tories and away from the NDP.

The IRG poll (Ad-Testing Wave 2; the other data was released much earlier and included in the projection then) has little impact due to its age.

Projection as of the latest national poll (midpoint: October 6)
LIB - 154.9 (34.3%)
CON - 139.1 (35.1 35.5%)
BQ - 20.8 (5.5%)
NDP - 19.8 (13.1%)
GRN - 2.3 (8.4%)
PPC - 0.5
IND - 0.5
