Votes for the People's Party of Canada may have cost the Conservatives up to six ridings in Monday's federal election, an analysis of election results shows.

Polling before the election showed the Conservatives were the second choice of about half of PPC voters, according to polling done by Ipsos, implying about one PPC voters in two would have voted Conservative if the party hadn't existed.

"The data suggests that the Conservative Party would likely get around half of the vote from the People's Party, understanding that for many people the People's Party was a none-of-the-above vote," says Sean Simpson of Ipsos.
