Québec solidaire (QS) garners 12% of provincial voting intentions, 6 percentage points less than last March, according to a Léger-Québecor survey conducted from May 10 to 13.

This drop takes place at a time when the party is facing an internal crisis following the resignation of co-spokesperson Émilise Lessard-Therrien last month.< /p>

QS had 18% of voting intentions two months ago, according to another survey by the Léger firm, before dropping to 14% at the end of April, according to the Léger survey which followed.

These would be QS's weakest voting intentions since February 2022, according to the Journal de Québec. The party is now neck and neck with the Conservative Party of Quebec, also at 12%, according to the most recent Léger-Québecor poll.

The Parti Québécois drops by 2 percentage points compared to April, but remains well in the lead with 32% of voting intentions, 10 points ahead of the Coalition Avenir Québec, which stands at 22%. The Quebec Liberal Party received 17% of voting intentions.

Léger-Québecor surveyed 1,031 Quebecers aged 18 or over. The maximum margin of error for a sample of 1031 respondents is ± 3.05%, 19 times out of 20.
