Three weeks ago, the Parti Quebecois was sitting pretty atop the opinion polls with analysts predicting that they'd win a majority government.
My, how things can change in politics — especially in Quebec — in just a couple of weeks.
According to a new Leger/Journal de Montreal poll, released on Tuesday, Philippe Couillard's Liberals are now the ones with a commanding lead heading into the April 7 election.
The poll has the Liberals at 40 per cent support, the PQ at 33 per cent and the Coaltion Avenir Quebec at 15 per cent.
More importantly, according to polling analyst Bryan Breguet, the latest popular support numbers put the Liberals in a position to win a majority government for the first time in this race; he pegs the seat count as 64 for the Liberals, 54 for the PQ, 5 for the CAQ and 2 for Quebec Solidaire.
If the numbers hold, it would be an epic failure on the part of the PQ.
