Trudeau Takes It

Right up until earlier this year, Google Trends had an excellent record in predicting the winner of major elections but then it went and gave a thumping win to Ed Miliband and the Labour Party only to see it decimated and the Conservative Party romp to victory.
The eve of the Canadian General Election is a good time to get back on the horse and see if Google Trends has rediscovered it's mojo and it is declaring a change of backside in Canada's big chair with incumbent Prime Minister, Stephen Harper, thrown out on his ear and Justin Trudeau of the Liberals laughing over his Maple Syrup breakfast sandwich on Tuesday morning.
Unless there are revelations that knock him from his pedestal between now and voting close tomorrow, Google thinks Trudeau will sneak over the line in front of Harper but it is close call so beware anyone who is thinking of remortgaging their house and throwing it all at a bookie on the strength of Google. 
Here in he UK we should be filling our swimming pools with gold coins under a Labour Government like Scrooge McDuck as Google predicted but instead we are breaking up what's left of our furniture for the fire under a Conservative Government so be careful.
