I noticed that CROP recently had a poll out that showed the Liberals at 11% in Quebec, and the NDP at 20% - which would apparently give the Libs 3 seats and the NDP 5, the rest split up among Cons and Bloc Quebecois, according to 308.com's Eric Grenier.
This is, obviously, an interesting poll, if only because it has such wonky, and terrifying, numbers. But I've said before that CROP, along with another online Quebec pollster called Leger, has been drifting increasingly towards both the crazy, leading me to suspect that this may in fact be another voodoo poll, as are a lot of online pollsters.
To demonstrate the difference between traditional pollsters (those that phone) and online pollsters, here's a fun graphical chart:
This chart is an average of 17 traditional polls and 11 online polls that have been released since the beginning of 2011. There is an obvious difference to be found - can you spot it?
While the Liberals don't move much (though more than the Bloc), the huge difference between the NDP vote is a figure worth noting. That's over most margins of errors in Quebec polls, and represents an obvious bias that we can't ignore when looking at a poll like CROP or Leger. It begs several questions, which I won't answer here. But, that's my piece on this issue - make your own decisions. I just offer up the data.
