Poll puts Liberals fourth in Quebec

NDP climbs into third place, behind Bloc, Tories

A new CROP poll shows the the Bloc Québécois would once again take the vast majority of seats in Quebec if a federal election were held today. But if the Bloc’s dominance comes as no surprise, the same can’t be said of the dismal showing by the federal Liberals. Support for the Grits has tumbled to 18 per cent in the province, behind both the Conservatives (20 per cent) and the NDP (19 per cent). Nearly six in 10 (58 per cent) of Quebecers say they would welcome a federal election in 2011, including 72 per cent of Liberal party supporters.
