CAQ lead Liberals in latest poll

A poll released this morning says support for the Liberals has slipped dramatically in the last several weeks.

Commissioned by The Gazette, the Mainstreet poll shows that since the end of March Liberal support has fallen eight percentage points and they are now in a statistical tie with the CAQ.

By the numbers:

The Liberals have 31% support while the CAQ are at 32% which is up nine points from the last survey.

The Parti Quebecois is at 24% support, down two points from March.

Quebec Solidare has  the support of 14% of respondents, up two points from March.

Among the key francophone vote the CAQ is at 35%, the Parti Quebecois is at 26% while the Liberals have 25% support.

Mainstreet executive vice-president David Valentin says the numbers have turned for the Liberals over the question of ethics.
