Party Cooperation (Nathan Cullen Proposal) – Simulations

Following my previous post in support of Nathan Cullen, I decided to take my cartogram tool, and simulate how Nathan Cullen’s plan might work based on the past election results. I know how public opinion can change, and – who knows – support for the Conservatives may plunge, rendering the idea unnecessary… but I like that Cullen has even proposed it. It shows he can think strategically, and can adapt to changing political realities. Besides, the point here is simply to show visually how cooperation can be mutually beneficial to the NDP and Liberals and Greens.

So, I made 7 maps, showing how ridings may swing from Conservative to NDP or Liberal based on assumptions on how votes might be if a joint candidate was run. I have data using an average of 15-35% of “second choice” being Conservative, to 80-40% being to another NDP/Liberal/Green candidate (weighted to each based on the EKOS data).
