A new poll conducted Monday suggests the Liberals are still heading for a majority government with less than a week to go in the campaign.
The poll, done by Forum Research, shows 41 per cent of Quebecers now support the Liberals, compared with 29 per cent for the PQ, 19 per cent for the CAQ, and Québec Solidaire with 7 percent.
The francophone vote numbers that Forum offers, however, are striking — the firm says the Liberals now have a 9-point lead among francophones, 39 per cent to 30. No previous poll during this campaign has given the Liberals a lead among francophones, and last week's Leger Marketing poll showed the PQ with close to a double-digit lead over the Liberals.
The telephone poll surveyed 854 people on Monday. It supposedly has a margin of error of 3 percent, 19 times out of 20.
