Updates to federal averages and by-elections

On Friday, I had to say good-bye to my eight-year-old desktop PC. It had suddenly, and tragically, decided to kick the bucket. Luckily, I back-up regularly and the hard-drive was not shot so nothing of importance was lost. But it did throw a monkey wrench into my plans for updating the site on Friday.

This morning, I have updated the federal averages with the latest Ipsos-Reid poll and have put all of the by-elections in the By-Elections Barometer up to date, taking into account all the polling that I missed while I was away the week before last. I have also added the two new races in Etobicoke-Lakeshore and Scarborough-Guildwood.

As there were a lot of updates to do to the barometer, and since this new computer and Windows 8 has slowed me down considerably while I get the hang of it, I won't have any more detailed post to put up until tomorrow. But check out the new aggregates and by-election forecasts in the meantime.
