CAQ slips, but continues to lead in new poll
The Quebec Liberals gained ground in the past month, at the expense of the front running CAQ in the latest public opinion poll but the numbers indicate the race to the October election remains wide open.
A Leger poll conducted for TVA says the CAQ has the support of 34% of respondents while the Liberals are at 29%.
The CAQ has dropped three points in a month, while the Liberals climbed three points.
The Parti Québécois and Québec solidaire held steady at 21% and 9% support respectively.
Léger President Jean-Marc Léger says after distributing the undecided vote, the results would mean the CAQ would form a minority government.
Perhaps more surprising is the overall unpopularity of the party leaders.
Only 29% of respondents say Francois Legault would make a good premier, 16% said Philippe Couillard and only 11% of respondents named Jean-François Lisée.
