The Conservatives are in third place due to strategic voting by dissatisfied Conservative voters
 Re "Will Canadians vote strategically in this election? Let's hope not," by Andrew Perez, Sept. 9.

In the latest sampling of public opinion by the Forum Reseach among 1384 Canadian voters, more than one third will vote for the NDP (36%) in the coming federal election while just less than a third will vote Liberal (32%). The Conservatives continue to lag, with one quarter of the vote (24%).

If these results are projected to the new 338 seat House of Commons, the NDP would win a minority government of 141 seats. The Liberals would form the Official Opposition with 123 seats, and the Conservatives would be relegated to third party status, with 73 seats.

The poll also shows that one fifth of those who voted Conservative in 2011 will vote for the NDP this time (18%), and one tenth will vote Liberal (11%). One quarter of of past Liberals are voting NDP this time (25%), while one sixth of past New Democrats (15%) will return the favour. Very few past New Democrats or Liberals will vote Conservative (3% to 4%). This puts to rest the theory that there are "blue Liberals" who will vote Conservative to prevent an NDP win.

The strategic voting by disastisfied Conservative voters may play a crucial role in both the NDP and the Liberal success in the coming election.

Re:  44% of voters support Trudeau's deficit plan, poll finds,  Ben Spurr, Sep 09 2015

The appropriateness of government deficits or surplus depends on what is happening in the real economy. Currently Canada has a large trade deficit which means more money leaves the economy than comes in, and our private corporations are hoarding money rather than investing into a stagnant economy. Consumers are heavily indebted.  So right now deficit spending is required to increase domestic demand that will support business activity and put more people back to work. Currently about 1.3 million Canadians are seeking jobs.

As economist John Kenneth Galbraith put it, "If there is idle capacity and unemployment, the government must spend more that it receives in taxes.........there is no merit at all in a policy that just balances income and outgo, none whatever."
