Polls... they go down, they go up

Hey, I gotta post it just to keep things fair... one week, they get a poll they like... this week, we get one that we REALLY like.

39% (+3%) vs. 27% (-3%)... and leading in Ontario by a whopping 8%. (42% vs. 34%)

Can Dion climb down from this one? I still think he has no choice but to pull the plug... if he doesn't, he'll get painted as an even weaker leader, leading the Liberals with no vision, who backed away from a fight out of pure self interest.

But of course, as always, the only one that really counts is the poll at the ballot box...

    you didn't post the harris-decima poll...

    cons 35 %

    libs 33 %

    3.1 % margin of error= statistical tie. it seems a little more in line with other recent polls including SES. remember, they gave the libs a 2 point lead. i seem to recall reading that you only truly accepted the SES polls as legit...

    Double check the title Jeff... I don't put much faith in the polls, I was just posting it as a contrast to all folks touting last week's poll numbers to prove that very point.

    The only poll that counts is the ballot box... I'd just like to get on the hustings so we can get that poll result.

    I put more stock in the NANOS polls. He doesn't resort to nonsense and is consistently more accurate than the others and he's not biased Conserv or Lib.

    Strategic is Conserv leaning, for example as is Ipsos. Ipsos is the worst of them all.

    Nanos doesn't to polls every little second and he doesn't resort to who you'd like to have a beer with nonsense.

    Actually, if you average it all out, Libs and Conservs slightly up and down regularly - nothing is changing.

    NDP should be worried - they are consistantly falling and yet they are anxious for an election? Or are they posturing because they know they're vote won't make a difference?
