Bloc Quebecois: 3
Ekos is an interesting firm. Their results are always very low for the Conservatives and high for other parties. They had similar issues during the 2008 campaign. Their methodology uses a recorded message over the phone (both to landlines and cell phones) where the participant is not required to talk to a person. Given the results are very far off from the other polling firms, and given they off by 3% in 2008, whereas Ipsos Reid and Angus Reid, both with much smaller sample sizes were far closer, this leads me to believe that Ekos’ methodology has a flaw in it somewhere.
