CROP poll tempers PQ surge

Quebec's two big polling companies are at odds over how Quebecers would vote should an election be held now.

Monday, Leger Marketing produced results of a survey which predicted a PQ majority.

This morning the CROP organization says , they are close, but it's not guaranteed.

Crop says what is clear is that PQ support is firming up.

By the numbers:
35% of respondents would vote Liberal and another 35% vote PQ.

The CAQ and Quebec Solidare are well back at 16% and 10% support respectively.

The key numbers according to the researchers is the breakdown of the francophone vote.

In today's survey the PQ leads the Liberals in that demographic 42 % to 24%.

The so-called 'magic number" to form a majority government is around 43%.
