Commentary
Question 1-(Party support) (break down by region) *BC Green and BC Conservative numbers based on candidates in all ridings. In fact, both of these these parties will not be running candidates in approximately 20 ridings each. Numbers presented may be considered as lowest support in poll (8%) Green x 20 ridings subtracted from BC Green total or BC Green total minus 1.88%, while BC Conservatives lowest total of 5% x 20 ridings or BC Conservative total minus 1.18%. Based on these assumptions the total for BC Greens and BC Conservatives of (22%) would be (3.06%). How this percentage would be distributed to all parties or whether these 'supporters' would refuse to vote or other is unknown. The statistical outcome of these assumptions would place the BC Greens at 10.08%, and BC Conservatives at 8.32%.
