Adjustment to Polls
As of today, we feel that we now have enough polls that have been published in September to drop our older polls from August. This will allow us to drop the polls which did not account for all 5 parties (thereby making our poll projections add up to more than 100%). We will be adopting a new methodology where we do not accept polls that do not show the result for all 5 parties. It appears as though Environics, Ekos, the Strategic Council, and Nanos (former SES) will be taking regular polls throughout the election, so we do not expect the missing of one or two polls to be a problem as we fully expect 40-60 polls during the election.
