Because 'Forum Polls' are known for their scientific accuracy. ROTFL

Oh, wait! They only measure the opinions of the people the forum attracts. So, not a reflective of an unbiased source.

Fake news.

Well, it's not actually 'a forum poll.' Its' "Forum Research."

Polling is among its services. I don't know if they only do phone interview polls but they do, do phone polls. But yeah there are claims of hits and misses like with all polling firms.

Quote:
Toronto, December 3rd – In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Poll™ among 1541 Canadian voters, with those decided and leaning, 4 in 10 (43%) say they would support the Conservatives, with a third (34%) saying they would support the Liberals.

I'm not at zero myself but I won't quibble with you over the number.

They can be interesting.

There's an article linked below on polls that went outrageously wrong in Canada. Forum Research gets one of the mentions:

http://www.poletical.com/opinion-polls- ... a-fail.php

There was a polling firm in the Toronto mayoral election that was getting numbers higher than was comfortable to those of influence. They simply dropped the candidate's name from queries in future polling.

After both Trump and Nenshi were both supposed to lose, according to the polls... It's hard to take them seriously.

True enough, I guess. And when the Progressive's VunderKid, Nate Silver, got shamed by the Trump election it didn't do the rep of Polling in general any favors.

If Trudeau can "speak for all Canadians" why can't a potentially inaccurate and poorly designed poll speak for a majority of them? :wink:

Talked me into it. I don't think we have a chance this time round though.

I think the most we can hope for is to damage the chances of the (real) Progressive (phony) Conservative party under Soy Boy #2 - Andrew Scheer.

Let Trudeau have one more term.

Give Trudeau one more term and he'll screw things up so bad not even the SJW-est of the SJW's will dare back him again.

There will be a populist wave if not a giant tsunami for Max. He'll die of old age in power before anybody will dare offer up another pretty boy prog with nothing else going for him to run against him.

And our Canada - the true north strong and free - the one Junior says doesn't exist, will repair and thrive.

Such is the dream.
