The stunning thing in this is why people think vote or opinion polls are as accurate as they are said to be.

The margin of error indices should come with a laughtrack. If these pollsters were running vegas it would be broke.

By and large when vote day comes the incumbent party, or representative always has a decided advantage. Theres often a status quo vote when it actually comes to the election.

I'm saying this in general terms about any Canadian election. It takes a whole lot of change in tide to throw an entrenched incumbent party out. The polls never reflect or even detect the ardent factions of support.
