A CROP survey out Wednesday shows the PQ gaining support at the Liberals' expense — in apparent contradition to a Leger poll released last week showing the Liberals have opened up a 5-point lead over the PQ.
The CROP poll shows the PQ and the Liberals tied with 35 per cent support, the CAQ is at 18 per cent and Quebec Solidaire at 10 per cent.
The PQ are up three points compared with a poll done last month, while the Liberals are down two.
The new poll also has more good news for the Marois government: its satisfaction rating has gone up dramatically in the past month — 9 points — in the past month.
The PQ's gains came mainly from Quebecers living outside Montreal, and less-educated people — groups that are more likely to support the controversial secularism charter.
Federally, the Liberals are ahead in Quebec, with 36 per cent support, with the NDP just behind at 30 per cent.
