It's possible a lot of candidates would have won anyway, especially the Liberal ones.
How can they stop the slide?
The NDP and Liberals could realistically cost the Conservatives 20 to 25 seats if they were to strike a deal to avoid vote splitting.
But what happens if they win a minority?
The most recent projections describe a situation in which it is unlikely the party will win a single seat.
There would be one big political winner. And it wouldn't be Conservatives.
"The fact is that we had a three-way race and we still do, it’s just that two parties may be heading in opposite directions right now."
Will voters feel the need to "punish"?
There's a reason seat projections in 2011 mostly failed to predict a Tory majority.
