Published March 25 2009 16h24 | Updated 26 March 2009 at 07h57



(Quebec) The popularity of Michael Ignatieff can not be denied. The trend in the arrival of the new leader at the helm of the Liberal Party of Canada continues, according to the latest CROP poll conducted for La Presse.

The survey conducted from March 12 to 23 from 1000 notes that Mr. Ignatieff is considered as "best Prime Minister of Canada" with 35% of Quebecers - two points less than in January, down below the margin of error of 3 percentage points. For Stephen Harper, the rating rose from 16 to 19% during the same period, while Jack Layton from 23 to 22%. Ignatieff's popularity in Quebec represents a quantum leap compared with 16% getting Stéphane Dion on the same issue in the fall of 2008. Gilles Duceppe, who does not claim to lead the country, harvest 3% to this list.

But in terms of voting intentions, the party of Mr. Duceppe is still ahead of the Liberals and the Conservatives ahead of. Good news for Gilles Duceppe, the Bloc advance on the PLC, which had shrunk to 3% in mid-January, fell to 5%. The Bloc had harvested 35% of the vote if elections were held this week, against 30% in the PLC.

Decline of the Conservatives


Compared with October 2008 elections, it is an improvement of 6% for the Liberals. The Bloc saw its score rise from 38% to 35%. The Conservatives have gained two points since mid-January, but their performance of 18% is a decline of four points on their low score in the general election, or 22% of the votes in Quebec.

The NDP had 13% if Quebecers were invited to vote, one point higher than in October 2008, after proportional distribution of 16% undecided.

Among francophones, the Bloc harvest 41% of the vote, against 27% in the PLC and the Conservatives 17%, increases below the margin of error. The NDP will move three points to 12%.

Disadvantage against conservatives is also reflected in the satisfaction of Quebecers to the Harper government. Only 36% of people are happy with the decisions of Ottawa, two points higher than in January, but a slide of 15% compared to September 2008.

The Liberals and the Bloc are equal in Montreal, with 32 and 33% of the vote respectively. The Conservatives are missing from the metropolis with 14% of the votes, a point less than the NDP. In Quebec and elsewhere in the region, the Bloc is much in advance: it harvest 38% of the votes in the region against 29% for the Liberals outside of Quebec and Montreal. In Quebec City, the region where the Conservatives have made gains in October, the party of Stephen Harper would gain 32% of the vote than the Bloc at 30% and the Liberals at 24%.

Quebec City, unlike Montreal, is a traditionalist town. You will find more catholic voters in Quebec City than in any part of Quebec. Quebec City had always had Conservative leanings, even when the Conservative parties did not do so well in the province, they would get seats in Quebec City.

18 % province wide isn't that bad when you out into acount low numbers in montreal for the cpc . quebec city remains the only region where the conservatives lead although its a close 3 way race there .

whats interesting is when you look at the numbers , even though there an improvement for the liberals over dion there , doesn't look like there'd be many new seats for them . as conservatives still hold quebec city region , bloc hold the franchone vote and those seats , leaving the liberals with just montreal and even there is still a close race . so i don't see many new seats for them .

no i think quebec is more regional and complex than first though , well the conservatives do not do good in montreal they do have a strong following in the quebec city region .

also think that having an mp in an area helps the conservatives , that allows them to get there message across and people feel involved with the government . think thats whats hurting them in montreal , is no mp's and they don't feel connected or involved with the government . but then some of the montreal ridings are about the same as say toronto on the ethnic scale so that might also be hurting them .

anyways this poll might be if nothing else an indication that all is not lost in quebec , well there not in love with the cpc , there is still seats there .

On the bright side, we have more MP's in Quebec then the Liberals have in all of Western Canada.

True. In a way, the Tories in Quebec and Liberals in Western Canada are like two midgets duking it out for the ultra feather weight title. Our's is a slightly bigger midget of course.

its actually not the liberals most likely pickup . and we should remember that here in ontario the provincial ndp poll very low province wide, similar numbers to ndp province wide in quebec yet they still mange to win 10 or so seats , as there support is in pockets . the ndp at 15 % or so in montreal is similar numbers to what ndp polls in ontario and yet still wins seats . plus thomas mulcair is very high profile so he could win it on his personal popularity or name recognition .

for the liberals bloc held seats like gatineau , ahunstic , jeanne le ber , brome missosqui . could be more likely pickups than the outremont seat . but outside of really historically liberal seats i doubt they'd gain too many seats based on these numbers .

I think things can change in Quebec. Look at what happened when Mulroney took over, traditional Liberal seats went over in droves once the Liberal leader was an Anglo and the Liberals by an Anglo.

What the party needs is strong cabinet ministers to make them part of the government. Sorta what Max Bernier was headed for before he screwed up.
