Angry in the Great White North has unconvered evidence that suggests that the latest poll showing Liberal support overtaking the Tories may be politically motivated.
I'd like to point out that other polls in the last few days have confirmed that Tory support has slipped. Most show that the Liberals and Tories are statistically tied. But that isn't a sexy headline so it's no surprise that the media doesn't report it that way.
What I've always thought is that what pollsters really can be biased on is on the details on how the poll is performed. The questions asked, if asked correctly can either boost or decline one side's support. Also the time the poll was conducted is also critically important.
A word is being thrown around right now. Everyone says the electorate is "volatile." That's doublespeak for no one knows what the heck is going on.
Let's not prejudge election results until the election is called at the very minimum.
