Strategic voting in Essex: vote NDP

Strategic tacitcal voting in Essex
Strategic voting in Essex
The riding of Essex in southwest Ontario has had a Conservative MP, Jeff Watson, since 2004.

In the last election, the results were CPC (48%), NDP  (35%), Lib.  (14%), Green  (2%).

An Environics poll taken Oct. 2-5, however, suggests that the Conservatives could be vulnerable in Essex if strategic voters rally behind the NDP candidate.  It found voting intentions as CPC (38%), NDP  (37%), Lib.  (22%), Green  (4%).

Strategic voters who want to avoid a Conservative victory through vote-splitting should vote NDP.
