who's going down?

For those of you interested, the Election Prediction Project has published it's predictions of which candidates will survive and be defeated in tomorrow's election (props to Scott Tribe).

Their predictions are...

Conservative - 118
Liberal - 104
Bloc Quebecois - 56
NDP - 29
Independent - 1

As well, their individual seats predictions predict that a number of Paul Martin's Cabinet Ministers will be going down in the blazing glory of defeat come 7:30 pm tomorrow.

Some high profile defeat predictions include...

Deputy Prime Minister Anne McLellan (Edmonton Centre)
Agriculture Minister Andy Mitchell (Parry Sound-Muskoka)
Foreign Affairs Minister Pierre Pettigrew (Papineau)
Human Resources and Employment Minister Belinda Stronach (Newmarket-Aurora)
Government House Leader Tony Valeri (Hamilton East-Stoney Creek)

It should be interesting to see how accurate these predictions are come tomorrow night.

As well, taracool has posted a link to the Laurier Institute for the Study of Public Opinion and Policy's election predictions.
