Seat by Seat Predictions in Manitoba

TC's forecaster delivers a global overview of the Manitoba election. However, there are always individual contests in ridings that can override the general trend. Although the seat forecaster doesn't predict these outcomes, I would not be completely surprised if the PCs pick up La Verendrye and Brandon West, both traditional PC strongholds prior to the Gary Doer era. While the NDP is reportedly pressing the PCs in a couple of Winnipeg seats it is difficult to imagine them overcoming the historic trend and doing even better than in 2003.

There are interesting seat-by-seat predictions on two Manitoba blogs from observers closer to the scene: Endless Spin Cycle and Praire Topiary. I offer no critique but they make interesting reading.
