According to this Léger Marketing poll, well, yeah - they are.
The results without Francoise Legault's Mystery Party as an option has the PLQ leading the Parti Québécois, 31% to 26%, with Action Democratique at 16%, Québec Solidaire at 9%, and the Parti Vert at 5%. A further 13% chose the "other" option.
However, with FLMP (or is it PMFL?) included, Legault's "party" gets 34%, compared to 25% for the PLQ, 17% for the PQ, and so on.
Granted, it's speculation. We don't know what FLMP will actually be when it comes into force. People may not like it. It's nice to support abstract ideas, but when the party materializes, will it actually get the same support?
I'm of the idea that, yes, it's likely it'll receive a huge chunk of support. Maybe not as large as these polls claim, but enough that it'll throw a wrench into the works. There is simply too much news about it for them not to attract support. The same goes for any "new" separatist party that springs out of the PQ.
But, it seems increasingly clear that for some reason, the PLQ continues to have the most solid base of supporters, relative to the amounts that keep shifting everywhere in the province of Quebec. To only drop to 25% from 31% in the non-FLMP poll is, weirdly, indicative of continuing support in the Liberals.
That makes them the best opposition to a possible Legault swell. Weird how it works out, isn't it?
