Any chance the NDP can pick up enough seats from the PC to put the WRP over the top?

No...

Considering that PC leads by almost forty seats, I doubt it.

Doubt it, looks like a PC majority either way.  The individual results will be interesting in the individual ridings, but I think at this point a PC majority is pretty much a foregone conclusion.

Quebec, 1976? Lévesque had no speech for gaining power, since Bourassa reelected was very expected.

I think in 1993, there was a similiar comeback as I believe the Liberals had an even bigger lead.  Also in 2004 federally if you look at Ontario only, you saw a similiar last minute shift from the Conservatives to Liberals.

I really wish we had exit polls on this side of the border. Then you could at least know who shifted when.

So does Smith get scalped for this? Does Redford wax in perceived power from having won the unwinnable?

What's turnout like? Perhaps a lot of nontraditional voters coming out of the wood works.

deja vu 2004 federally again?  In 2004 we had the same comments.  I think with polls when you have a high undecided then anything is possible.  And considering that the undecided was quite high that is probably the reason.  It seems the undecided more often than not tends to break in favour of the incumbent.

Rob Anderson next WRP leader? Or do they need to target further North and go with someone like Link Byfield?

I'm sorry to see Ted Morton trailing.

Calgary-McCall... the only riding where PC is neither first nor second?

Why are CBC's total numbers for 'leading' going down?

Possibly due to an increase in the first column - 'elected'?

Some of the seats that the WRP are winning in aren't the ridings that I would expect them to win if you told me how many seats they would be getting.

That's what I think.

Ted Morton: Hopefully he wins. There needs to be a Blue Tory somewhere in that nest of McGuinty Liberalism. Who ever thought a female McGuinty could win in Alberta?
