Another new poll shows Liberals sinking, CAQ gaining
A fresh new election poll out Friday morning shows if the Quebec election were held this week, the PQ would win a comfortable majority government.
But the CAQ and its leader, Francois Legault, continue to make gains, mainly at the expense of the Charest Liberals.
The Leger poll done for the Journal de Montreal shows the PQ in the lead with 33 percent support, the Liberals at 28, and the CAQ at 27.
The CAQ, however, continues to make gains, particularly in the Quebec City area, where it is now the dominant party.
A poll out Thursday from the CROP firm came up with similar figures: The PQ at 34 percent support, the Liberals at 27, the CAQ at 25.
The Leger poll also shows 27 percent believe Legault has been the best campaigner so far, well ahead of Jean Charest and Pauline Marois, who sit at 17 and 16 percent, respectively.
And Quebecers judged the CAQ best able to deal with accessibility to health care, public finances and getting rid of corruption.
