Summer hiatus

We're in the dog days of summer now and, as we all know, polls are for dogs. So ThreeHundredEight.com will be taking a brief summer hiatus, returning after the civic holiday long weekend.

In the meantime, you might want to check out some of the recent articles posted to this site that you may have missed:

- A look at how the Ontario provincial election campaign would have been perceived differently if the likely voter models that performed so poorly had been ignored.
- A breakdown of federal party support by age and gender, and an investigation of how this support has shifted since the 2011 federal election.
- A history of the riding of Kingston and the Islands, from John A. Macdonald to Ted Hsu.
- All the latest polls from the upcoming Toronto mayoral race.

And if you really need a polling fix, time to finally check out Tapping into the Pulse, my ebook retrospective of 2013's year in politics and polling. What happened with the polls in British Columbia and the Brandon-Souris by-election? Why were the polls so much better in Nova Scotia? What was Justin Trudeau's first year as Liberal leader like, or the last year before the Quebec and Ontario provincial elections? You can find the links to order here.

You might want to explore the site a little bit as well. After six years and almost 1,500 posts, there is plenty to keep you occupied!

See you in August! Elections in New Brunswick and Toronto are just around the corner - it should be an interesting autumn.
