Our apologies to trendlines.ca. We had assumed we were the first to Twitter, but they have been online for quite a while! Feel free to read their feed at

Trendlines has been very accurate in past elections especially the 2007 Ontario election where they were the first to (very early) project a significant PC downturn, suggesting at near the time the writ dropped a maximum of 35 seats, while democraticspace (now offline) and electionprediction (plus my own pre-blog projections) had the numbers closer to 40 or 50. Trendlines uses a trend line to project it's results, we have picked up on this and use a trend line as part of our projection.
