Nanos numbers catch up with everyone else

All the pollsters have been showing a significant bleed in Liberal support, except for Nanos... UNTIL TODAY.

CPC - 38% (+3)
LPC - 27% (-3)
NDP - 21% (-1)
BQ - 8% (+1)
GP - 6% (NC)

Folks, perspective here... TODAY'S NANOS NUMBERS ARE BELOW THE LIBERALS 1984 POLL RESULTS, which came in at 28.02%.

    As I commented on another blog, If you look at the Globe's 'Poll of Polls' Nanos does not seem to include the west in his polling, at least Nanos is not included when you drill down into the regions numbers. Is this on purpose or am I missing something?

    check Nanos directly and you'll see the West is there:

    Must have to do with the Globe.

    Well if you watch him on CPAC he has all the numbers including the west it would not make sense for a polling firm to forget 75 seats.

    Nanos's numbers have been all over the board during this election. I had to laugh the other day when it said that the Tories were at 35%, when all of the other polls had them pegged at around 38%.

    I've learned just to ignore Nanos altogether as they've been poor in quality for a long time.

    I think he was using another formula and his call lists included many cell phone numbers which predominently belong to younger voters who tend to vote left. That's why his numbers were off.
