11 Montréal Québec Toronto Ottawa Calgary Edmonton Philadelphia Denver Tampa 11 Back to the Future  On average, in 2006, except for Leger and Crop, the industry was 7 points over the BQ actual score. (Bloc result: 42% - Leger 40%, Crop 44%)  On average, in 2008, except for Leger, the industry was 8 points over the BQ actual score. (Bloc result: 38% - Leger 37%)  Is there such a thing as a massive stampede of Quebec headless chickens leaving the BQ in the last 24 hours of a campaign each and every election?  The short answer:  Massive spread in response rates between francophones and non-francophones  Overnight field windows do not capture more discreet voters  The issue of accents  If you don’t weight by language most used in household … you are toast!

18 Montréal Québec Toronto Ottawa Calgary Edmonton Philadelphia Denver Tampa 18 Final Thoughts …

19 Montréal Québec Toronto Ottawa Calgary Edmonton Philadelphia Denver Tampa 19 See you in two years!  We can all agree our industry is in good shape overall.  We need fine-tuning, not an overhaul!  If the dials don’t move, why do we do rolling polls published every morning? How does that help our industry?  Over-interpretation by the media  We are about the campaign but not the campaign  ‘Liberals Free-Falling: New Poll Shows’ (down 2% based on n=400)  How can we refine our art?  Should we move to a likely voter model? Since our political participation is as laughable as the US, should we adopt their strategy?  Should our weighting schemes evolve to account for how Canada has changed?  Are we ready to consider hybrid of fully on-line methodologies?
