Whig's stats are out of date

The Whig's website today features a "special report" by James Wallace on the NDP's decline in Ontario polls. Wallace quotes Nik Nanos, President of SES Research, as saying, "The big story is the NDP sliding in Ontario." (CPAC and SES Research do nightly opinion polls on the election.) Sounds pretty bad, right? The only problem is that the polls Wallace quotes Nanos on are out of date. The "big slide" refers to a few days' dip in NDP support in Ontario. From Dec 10 to Dec 14, NDP support slid from 20% to 12% in the CPAC-SES polls. And then it bounced back. The latest numbers show NDP support in Ontario at 19%. That's a "big slide" of... one point. At 19%, NDP numbers in Ontario are solid and doing fine.
