Latest poll a worst case scenario for Anglos…and Charest


According to James Mennie’s The Gazette blog entry a Leger poll indicates Jean Charest’s Liberals are on course to suffer their worst election result since confederation!

The online survey of 1,929 adults was conducted Aug. 23-24, immediately after last week’s four televised leaders debates. The poll gives the PQ 33 per cent support compared with 28 per cent for Francois Legault’s Coalition Avenir du Quebec and 27 per cent for Jean Charest’s Liberals. According to pollster Jean-Marc Leger those numbers leave the PQ as many as eight seats short required for a majority in the 125-seat National Assembly. The survey’s margin of error is 2.2 per cent.

The Liberals are in a virtual tie with the CAQ given the 2.2 per cent margin of error. Mind you even the PQ’s 33% is a bit dicey when the error margin is considered.

Most importantly there is still more than a week of campaigning to go and, like him or not, Charest is a seasoned politician. Will Marois blunder? Will Legault slip? Will people realize that a minority PQ government with the CAQ holding the balance is a worst case scenario for Quebec?

Stay tuned.
