Popular Vote Projection
The Conservatives Party of Canada increases its lead once again this week with an average of 35.2% of voting intentions Canada wide.
For the fifth consecutive week, the Liberal Party of Canada lost ground to its main rival with a drop of 1.1 point, and is now down to 32.9% of average support. On average, the Liberals shed points in every region of the country (yes, including Quebec), with the notable exception of British Columbia.
Here are the popular vote projections with 95% confidence intervals:
With this level of support. the Conservative Party of Canada takes an average lead of 14 seats over the Liberals. The CPC's seat average this week climbs to 155 seats.
Here are the averages of projected seat totals per region:
The probability densities of the Conservatives and Liberals still overlap significantly (naturally, when polls disagree - as they have this week - the uncertainty goes up):
With the Liberals sliding again this week, the NDP has increased its seat projection modestly, from an average of 18 to 25.
The Bloc québécois seat projection is steady, with an average of 14 seats (with 19% of popular support in Quebec).
It may simply be noise in the data, but the Green Party of Canada polled poorly this week in BC, causing its seat average to drop to 3 seats. Here is the GPC probability density:
