MONTREAL - The ruling Parti Quebecois won’t be celebrating the results of a Leger-QMI poll commissioned by the Journal de Montreal that has pegged its dissatisfaction rate at a staggering 68 percent, a full 10 percent higher than in the previous poll conducted in February.
Nonetheless the PQ maintains a narrow lead in voter intentions with 31 percent, one point over the leaderless Liberals, while the CAQ lags behind with 20 percent, Quebec Solidaire has 9 percent and the Option Nationale sits at 5 percent.
The PQ, which was elected September 4, now has a dissatisfaction rate which ranks up with the worst numbers posted by the previous Charest government in its nine-year reign.
Leger Marketing obtained the results by interviewing 1,216 internet users between 7 and 10 March.
