Or any other sort of organized (or semi-organized) strategic voting scheme? I was musing about that in the morning open-ish Ekos thread, and I’m curious about something: How do/would you respond to pollsters if asked what party for which you intend to vote “if an election were to be held tomorrow,” as the usual patter goes?
Would you name the party you ultimately want to benefit from your vote, or the one for which you’ll be actually cast your ballot, presuming that you keep your word to your swapping partner? In other words, if you plan to vote Green so that someone else can vote NDP in a tight race in another riding, would you say Green, or NDP?
