Conservative Supports Has Big Drop in Quebec

Support for the minority Harper government has seen a huge drop in the key province of Quebec. The Tories received 33% in the last election in the province and that number has now fallen to 24%. If this holds, the Harper government will be in serious trouble. (Yeah!!)

Yahoo News

Yeah!! would'nt it be great if the seperatists took over power in Canada!

Out here in the West, we are not too worried about the Separatists taking control of Saskatchewan. We just want Harper to keep his promise on the oil and gas money.

''The Tories received 33% in the last election in the province and that number has now fallen to 24%.''

I think you must have meant from the last poll, Tories got 24.6% of Quebec voters in the election. And the Tories still have that level of support, so it is solid.

From CBC:
''But the biggest swings came in the fortunes of the Liberals and Conservatives. Liberal popular vote plunged by 13.3 percentage points from the last election to 20.6 per cent, placing them in third spot in Quebec behind the Conservatives.

The Tories tripled their popular support to 24.6 per cent. About 3.6 million votes were counted in Quebec by 1:40 a.m. EST. Turnout in the province was 62.7 per cent, up 3.4 percentage points from 2004.

The NDP, never much of a factor in Quebec politics, received 7.5 per cent of the vote. The party garnered 4.6 per cent of the popular vote in Quebec last time out but failed to win any seats then. It didn't win any seats in Quebec this time either.''

the cons were up to about 33% between the election and the recent carnage in Lebanon and then Harper made that now famous comment; "measured response" when describing the deaths of hundreds of civilians

Quebecers are not a pro war people and the Bloc has gained all those votes that Harpo lost
