VOTE AND SEAT PROJECTION
The chart below shows how each party is classified in the model for the determination of the high and low ranges, and the probability that the result will fall within any of the projection ranges.
Based on these probabilities, there is a 57% chance that the outcome of the election for the Progressive Conservatives will fall between the best estimate (or average) projection and the high projection. There is an 72% chance that it will fall between the average and maximum projection, and so on. There is a 5% chance that the outcome will fall outside of the minimum and maximum ranges.
A detailed explanation of the vote and seat projection models and how the probabilities are calculated can be found here.
The projections are subject to the margin of error of the polls included in the model, as well as the inherent inability of the projection model to make perfect estimations of real-world dynamics. The projection ranges are a reflection of the degree of error polls have made in recent elections. The probabilities are based on how polls have differed from election results in the past.
The following chart lists the provincial polls currently included in the projection model that make up at least 95% of the weighted average, as well as the weight each poll carries. It also lists the media outlet that either commissioned or first reported the poll.
By including polls in the projection, no representation as to the accuracy or equivalency of the methods used is implied, nor should inclusion be seen as an acceptance, endorsement, or legitimization of their results. However, the weighting scheme takes reliability partly into account.
The chart below shows the evolution of the seat and vote projections and ranges since the start of the campaign.
