    Election Day 2019 Thread

    Figured I would get a head start and post the obligatory election day thread.

    I predict a Liberal minority government supported by the NDP and/or the Bloc. The NDP seem rather keen to support the Liberals and the Bloc has been making overtures in that direction as well with the exception of the Bill 21 issue.

    If the Conservatives win, it will definitely be a minority government and will not last long. Probably see a repeat of the Joe Clark government.

    Yes, a Liberal government supported by the NDP is my guess as the most probable outcome, and also the best possible outcome.

    I have no idea how the election will go and I'm not even certain for which local candidate I will vote tomorrow, err later today. This is definitely a case of the lesser of many evils reasoning and there is not much to actually get behind and feel good about. I guess I'll just sleep on it and hope my subconscious can help my gridlocked conscious make a decision.

    Cheers?

    I live in a Conservative riding. The only time it went Liberal was when we had the Alliance and the Progressive Conservatives wee both running candidates. Even under those conditions, the Liberal lasted one election cycle.

    In other words, my vote will not help determine who our MP is. Because of this I will likely vote Green, just to boost their national numbers.

    I'm voting NDP, as the Liberals will certainly win versus the Conservatives.

    Given Jagmeet's stellar increase in polling since the debate as he's finally gotten some real national exposure, I think, and hope, that he may well be a serious contender for the next election. Unfortunately, at the moment, it's too little too late.

    I thought I'd see what was going on in Canada today, so I found this article that shows conservative Scheer pulling ahead. Are the latest polls like the U.S's exit polls?

    Not sure... It was always going to be close.

    Canada Poll Tracker | CBC News

    It's still very early, though. A lot of older folks vote conservative here, so if this is exit polling, the surge does make sense, as most younger people will vote later in the day, due to working. This was the case last time around, anyway.

    We'll see what happens...the conservatives need to get a majority vote in order to keep power, as the other parties will most likely form a coalition if they only get a minority. I'm feeling good, but not so good that I won't vote myself.

    Any truth to reports people in blackface are being turned away from the polls? I've heard it several places.
