  1. A couple of comments from the Globe Article:

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ndp-holds-fast-to-laytons-old-seat-in-toronto-danforth-by-election/article2374513/comments/#

    “Conservative vote in Toronto Danforth:
    2000: 8.01%
    2004: 6.21%
    2006: 9.90%
    2008: 11.65%
    2011: 14.32%
    2012: 5.2% (10:20 pm)”

    “I think the real story here is how badly the Cons are doing. Will they hold off the Greens for 3rd place? The latest from Elections Canada had them at 5.2% of the vote (21:51 ET). Quite telling for a sitting Government!”

  2. Voter turnout very very low at 43.4%. Complete collapse of Conservative support – appeared to go the Liberals. Interesting also that Green Party support fell from 6.5% to 4.7%. Liberals also appeared to benefit from this.

    “Robocall” may be hurting the Conservatives. Also, the perception (largely fueled by mainstream media) that Toronto Danforth was an NDP/Liberal race, may have resulted in non-NDP votes voting Liberal.
