The decline of the Coalition Avenir Québec (CAQ) government in the voting intentions of Quebecers continues, according to a survey by the Léger firm which adds that the Parti Québécois (PQ) can now aspire to form a majority government.

The poll published Wednesday by Quebecor news media specifies that if general elections had taken place between March 15 and 18, the PQ would have garnered 34% of popular favor, ahead of the CAQ which only amassed 22%. of support from Quebecers, three percentage points less than the poll carried out a month earlier.

Léger adds that the CAQ has lost 19 points in popular favor since the fall 2022 elections which returned it to power.

Since the Parti Québécois has the support of 42% of French-speaking respondents, it is possible that it leads a majority government, according to the pollster.

Québec solidaire (QS) is in third place in voting intentions, with 18% in favor, ahead of the Liberal Party (PLQ) at 14% and the Conservative Party (PCQ) at 10%.

The leader of the Parti Québécois, Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, is seen by 32% of respondents as being the best potential prime minister, ahead of the CAQ François Legault, at 15%, and the leader of QS, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, at 14 %.

The survey was carried out a few days after the tabling of Finance Minister Eric Girard's budget on March 12, which includes a record deficit of $11 billion. Among respondents, 58% say it is a bad or very bad budget.

The Léger firm survey was conducted online among 1,033 Quebecers aged 18 or over.
