You might get them back if Harper's track record of losing his badly thought out policies gets to the Supreme Court.

However, yes for this election who have been denied a right that Canadian citizens should have.

Why isn't there a "not sure yet" option? I'm waiting to see who has the best chance of defeating Harper and voting them in.

I used my "distance ballot" on a Bloquist... Conservatives have no chance whatsoever where I last lived in Canada.

Why do people make public the results of polls like this? Like the real deal, this should be anonymous.

I honestly wouldn't have voted if I'd realized this wasn't anonymous. I assumed it was.

Good point Zoi, not sure why the op made the poll results public,however i've always been a Liberal in federal elections and dont really care if people know it.

not sure why it is a big deal. You won't be persecuted for voting for anyone.
I will vote for conservative and I am not afraid of letting anyone know.

Well, there are reasons for making a poll public. In the past some posters have complained because the poll results were private and there was a feeling that perhaps people who weren't Canadian had voted and that the results were skewed. Of course the the terms 'internet poll' and 'skewed' - aren't they synonyms anyway? I never vote in polls for that reason.

Anonymous means you don't know who I really am. You don't know who I really am, do you?

Sorry if it offends anyone! The purpose of the poll here isn't really to have a scientifically valid one like the real deal because there just aren't going to be enough voters to make the confidence intervals low enough. For much more realistic polling of tens of thousands of people like that, you can check out the CBC Poll Tracker. It's very well done.

I just thought it'd be fun to see which candidate people on City-Data support (so far, Harper by a hair) and also to identify regular posters with their political leanings if they want them to be known. I am not eligible to vote, but am a citizen, and don't care who knows that I would have gone Conservative Party in this one. I've got plenty of reasons (starting with the TFSA and surprisingly lower taxes than the U.S. that may have me moving from NYC to Canada if Harper wins again) to give if anyone should ask, so yeah, I don't care who knows it.

But I sincerely apologize to anyone who voted without knowledge that the poll was not anonymous!
