It is no surprise that Conservative MPs are accusing Maxime Bernier’s People’s Party of Canada (PPC) of splitting the national conservative vote. This is not the first time the CPC has levied vote-splitting accusations against similarly platformed candidates and it likely will not be the last.

Around this time of year, Christians love to recite the baby Jesus in the manger story. Putting aside the fact that a manger is a feeding trough in a stable with barnyard animals in it and a dirt floor with animal feces kicking around, and putting aside that nighttime temperatures were likely crisp, and putting aside the fact that Joseph and Mary were, basically, on the run from government officials trying to kill them… it’s a romantic little story about finding humble shelter for the Son of God.

This is the final analysis for the 2020 presidential election. We will explore seven factors and determine which direction each one points. Each factor is highly relevant and likely to offer an accurate indication of where the presidential election stands. Seven is an odd number, leaving no possibility for a 50/50 split. This is a good way to create more solid odds, as elections never truly result in a 50/50 split—only one candidate will win and the other will not.
