NDP support tumbles in Quebec

Official opposition polling at 29 per cent in 'la belle province'

A CROP poll released Wednesday puts support for the NDP in Quebec at 29 per cent, nearly half the 53 per cent the party enjoyed the May federal election in a poll taken last June, a month after the federal election. “They’ve lost their DNA,” says Youri Rivest, CROP’s vice-president, who believes the party lacks leadership and is generally absent from the scene. The Liberals, on the other hand, have gained nine points in Quebec since that same June poll, and sit at 19 per cent. Support for the Bloc Québécois is stagnating at only 22 per cent.
