CAQ Holds a Big Lead

Legault approval almost two-thirds

Toronto, July 29th, 2019 – In a random sampling of public opinion taken by The Forum Pollamong 977 Québec voters, amongst those decided and leaning, 4 in 10 (42%) say they would support the CAQ and one-fifth (22%) say they would support the Liberals, if a provincial election were held today.

One-sixth (15%) say they would support Québec Solidaire, while a similar proportion (12%) say they would support the PQ.

1 in 10 (10%) say they would support another party

Respondents most likely to say they support CAQ include those aged 45-54 (49%), males (48%), Federal Conservatives (69%), living in Québec City (57%), and French-speakers (49%).


Legault sees high approval

Almost two-thirds (60%) approve of the job Legault is doing as premier, while a quarter (27%) say they disapprove.

1 in 10 (13%) say they don’t know.

Legault’s net-favourable score (approve-disapprove) is an enviable +33.


Arcand poorly known 

The plurality (44%) say they don’t know whether they approve or disapprove of the job Arcand is doing as opposition leader. 

One-fifth (21%) say they approve, while a third (35%) say they disapprove. 

Arcand’s net-favourable score (approve-disapprove) is -14.


“There is plenty to be happy about if you’re Premier François Legault,” said Dr. Lorne Bozinoff, President of Forum Research. “His approvals are enviable, and his party would easily win re-election if the votes were cast today. Support like this won’t discourage the premier from driving his agenda forward, no matter what the opposition says.”
