Political MSN Convo

Everyone’s thinking about politics these days, in Canada...

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
well....you're of no help at all!!

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
i thought you're blog was gonna be helpful

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
i've done some reading and have been watching nothing but politics for the last TWO hours or so and I don't know what to do

sernaferna says:
Sorry. I'm not in the helpful business--I'm in the confusion business.

sernaferna says:
What are the choices you're looking at?

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
lol

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
same as you

sernaferna says:
Are you like so many others--trying to decide between NDP and Lib?

sernaferna says:
You can try this site:

http://www.electionprediction.org/


sernaferna says:
They're trying to predict who will win each riding, based on who has won before, and hopefully other factors too...

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
i just went to election.ca

sernaferna says:
That might help you decide what to do for your particular riding...

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
that's exactly what i'm looking into right now

sernaferna says:
Yeah, the latest polls show the Libs closing the gap wiht the Cons.

sernaferna says:
GAH! That election.ca thing suddenly just opened a bunch of windows. lol

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
yeah....i know....sorry

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
it would be really interesting to know how many ppl voted liberal as a strategy

sernaferna says:
It would indeed...

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
most ppl i've talked to are going through the same thing

sernaferna says:
Of course, the NDP has been urging people to vote NDP "strategically"... I don't know that anyone's buying that.

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
that would take a lot of ppl

sernaferna says:
I *think* that the NDP has a chance in my riding. However, that website I just sent you predicted Liberal pretty strongly, so they obviously don't agree.

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
lol

sernaferna says:
Of course, I live in Toronto--and most of the people who are voting Conservative aren't from Toronto. There is a good chance that they'll win the election, but most of the votes won't come from here, I don't think.

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
well...apparently it's too close to predict here

sernaferna says:
Funnily enough, if it was me, that would take some of the pressure off. I'd be able to just vote for who I wanted to vote for, and not be panicked that the Conservatives would get in...

Beth- Guilt....it's a powerful thing!! says:
true

sernaferna says:
And on that note, I'm off to get a , which will help me think about things.

sernaferna says:
BTW, do you mind if I post this conversation on my blog?
