22% of respondents indicated that if a provincial election was held today in Quebec, they would vote for Eric Duhaime’s Conservative Party.

31% of respondents said that they would vote for the CAQ, indicating a difference of only 9% between François Legault’s party and Éric Duhaime’s.

5% indicated that they would vote for the Parti Québécois, a historic low for the separatist party. The Quebec Liberal Party is polling at 13%, another historically low performance for Ms. Anglade’s party.

Québec Solidaire is holding relatively steady at 15% of support.

In the Quebec City area, the Conservative Party garners 31.2% of support, compared with 37% for the CAQ, indicating a heated battle ahead in the Capitale-Nationale region.

The survey also shows that 71% of Quebecers are more concerned about energy issues than before because of the war in Ukraine.

64% of Quebecers are also concerned by the fact that all of the oil and gas consumed in the province is imported.

Half of Quebecers are also in favour of domestic production of natural gas for export to Europe.

65% of Quebecers also think that developing our natural gas resources to create wealth that can be used to fund public services and the transition to renewable energy is a good idea.
