Majority remains out of reach for Marois in latest poll results
A new CROP poll indicates that a majority PQ government remains an elusive dream for Premier Marois.
Conducted last week, the poll shows that 61% of respondents are dissatisfied with the government, but Marois's personal popularity is growing.
A CROP spokesman says that is probably because of Marois' recent spate of public appearances and economic announcements.
While the Liberals have the overall lead in the pollsand the CAQ is fading fast, the Parti Quebecois continues to hold the edge in the key francophone demographic.
The poll was conducted last week and has the Liberals up three points from September to 38% support while the Parti Quebecois is up four points to 34%.
The CAQ has fallen six points to just 15%, while Quebec Solidare is at 8% support.
Among francophones the Parti Quebecois holds a commanding 41% to 29% lead over the Liberals.
And in terms of personal popularity, Premier Marois' star is rising while Liberal leader Philippe Couillard is fading.
23% of Quebecers feel Marois is the best choice for Premier, while 22% named Couillard.
Only 13 % name CAQ leader Francois Legault.
