Not unexpected


Liberals up, Conservatives down in Quebec according to a new CROP poll in Thursday’s La Presse and all  thanks to Stephen Harper now as well..

The Conservatives are at 16 per cent

a drop of 6 per cent since the election. The Liberals are at 31 per cent, compared to 24 per cent on October 14. The Bloc, which won 38 per cent, is now at 34 per cent. The NDP is at 15 per cent compared to 12 per cent.Among francophones, the Bloc stands at 40 per cent but the Liberals are now in second place, standing at 26 per cent double their score in the election. The Conservatives have lost half their support among francophones: they now are at 15 per cent compared to 29 per cent in the election.Only 34 per cent of Québécois are satisfied with the performance of the government, compared to 61 per cent who are not. This is the worst score for the government since it took power.Worse, only 16 per cent think Stephen Harper would make the best prime minister, and he now trails both Michael Ignatieff (37 per cent) and Jack Layton (23 per cent). Even in the Conservative bastion, the Greater Quebec region, the Bloc now leads with 30 per cent, followed by the Conservatives (28 per cent) and the Liberals (27 per cent).


Not unexpected for the big loser, one step forward, two steps backwards Stephen Harper who now has an  official Liberal chaperon as well and that it will be perilous times from this point forward for the Conservatives .
