    When are the supporters of Premier (for now) Marois going to take their heads out of their rear ends and see the harm she and her cohorts are doing to this province?

    Looks like all these figures show is a resounding defeat for the PQ. They were even further ahead before the last election and barely hung on. Just because people like the idea of the charter does not mean they will give her power just because of that.
    As someone who has a choice to stay or go i have more faith in the long suffering Quebec population than others do The youth of today have no interest in the divisive politics of the PQ.
    Many young people have decided to take their future into their own hands and vote this time because it's their future families they vote for. I wish them and Quebec "bonne chance"

    No way, Cannot be possible. I do not believe it. People are not that stupid, or are they? I have the feeling this poll is being rigged in favor of the PQ. Would a rigged poll be unheard of? With all the corruption going on in Quebec construction, why not this as well?

      @Eric I don't support the PQ (i voted QS) but many anglo colleagues of mine do intend to vote PQ (or support Quebec Solidaire as I will) for one simple reason: they view the CAQ and Liberals as being too conservative/neoliberal.

      I voted Liberal four times in the past but I've grown weary of their handling of the cities (Montreal and QC), their complete disinterest in sustainable development and transit funding, etc.

    This bodes well for the Ontario, and specifically the GTA economy, and no matter
    what fools end up in charge in Ontario. Quebec is Ontario's economic prosperity
    guaranteed insurance policy, and it pays off, in spades, and like clock work.
    What a gift !

    I am an avid Leger Poll user and I have to say as an Anglo I was never asked to do this survey so I a not sure who exactly they polled for this. All I can say is if you want your rights stripped, your government controlling what you wear on your head or neck, your rights to go to the cancer treatment centre you want denied and want your good hard earned money going to language laws rather then education jobs and our bridges and roads then please.. vote with your small pea brain. As for me.. Im not voting for her.. and I suggest you all do the same.

    Just thinking about all of the demagogues in recent history who enjoyed massive approval among their "electorate". Alabama segregationist George Wallace was hugely popular among the voters in Alabama.

    A certain irony to Mme Marois' face being plastered on the rear end of the PQ campaign bus?

    Oh, I forgot. Only irony if one has even a basic appreciation of the English language and its economic benefits in a world wide economy that will largely pass the hinterlands by unnoticed. Of course, the hinterlands will only take note when their welfare checks and other benefits disappear as Quebec separates and its educated Francophone elites leave the sinking ship along with their money. Mme Marois would lead the charge to the lifeboats. She and her family have financial security that can only be a dream for her serfs. The only interests she has are power.

    So 34% francophones don't recognize Marois for what she is. A duplicitous opportunist that would gladly destroy the lives of the many to benefit those of the few.

    How deep do the separatists have their heads stuck up their butts? I can't believe all these blind and stupid people.

    This election will show how raciest or non-racist the Francophones in Quebec are. If most support the PQ and other separatist parties or the PQ wins a majority, then we'll have our answer.

    No matter who wins the damage is done to our beautiful province. people against people for what? Because they wear clothing , speak a different language, think differently. Immigration To Quebec was that they speak French and that is what they got..Now they don't want them because they don't look like a purelaine..
    It's not the purelaine that are having babies so how can you grow and be purelaines..Conclusion I guess the purelain frenchman is not as sexy as we woman thought they were..

    Don't forget, that according to the herd theory, 80% of any population is incapable of critical thinking. They can be easily manipulated by the 20%. These are truly scary times in Quebec. The monkeys are running the zoo.
