The first official poll released following the formal election campaign kickoff shows the Liberals and the PQ are tied in terms of voter support — though the PQ would still win a slim majority.

The poll was conducted yesterday by Forum Research on Wednesday, and it shows both the Liberals and the PQ would each win about 40 per cent of the vote, while the CAQ would win about 10 per cent. The other parties are well into the single digits.

Figures like those would mean the PQ would win a slim majority over the Liberals.

In the most recent poll from Léger Marketing released Wednesday morning, the PQ stood to win a far more comfortable majority, with 37 per cent of the popular vote to the Liberals' 35 per cent.

    Maybe it's time the CAQ folds and goes to the Liberals...then no issues.

    And there are 5 other polls that say the opposite. The real poll is voting day and everyone should go out and vote. Sitting at home expecting things to change without your vote will not help.

    The popular vote does not accurately reflect what the breakdown will be in terms of seats and whether or not a majority or minority governmentis elected.
