Support for Quebec sovereignty stagnant despite PQ surge in polls

If the Parti Québécois is resonating more with Quebecers, it’s not because of a promise of Quebec independence.

According to a new study by Léger, support for Quebec sovereignty is now 35%. This is the same percentage of support as on Oct. 30, just after Parti Québécois leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon unveiled the party’s budget for Year One of an independent Quebec on Oct. 23.

There is currently a 21-point spread between those who support Quebec independence (35%) and those who do not (56%).

The study also found that the Parti Québécois is now leading with 32% support in voting intentions, ahead of François Legault and the CAQ in second place.
