There was a pretty strong sentiment that the first thing to do was get rid of Harper and his poisonous policies, and that any other party would be preferable. People were also very conscious of the risks of splitting the non-Conservative vote. I suspect this led to a lot of strategic voting from people who might otherwise have voted NDP or Green and might have declared that as their intention in the polls.
