Mutual Parasites - Liberals/BQ 
(en francais)


I had decided a while ago not to comment on polls anymore during this election, but the latest from Quebec is very interesting.
Conservatives support surges in Quebec: poll

The poll of 2,492 Quebecers is considered accurate within 2.2 percentage points, 19 times out of 20. It was conducted Jan. 13-15.

Among sovereigntists responding to the poll, 80 per cent said they would vote for the Bloc next Monday, 12 per cent said they would cast a Tory ballot, three per cent intended to vote NDP and two per cent were planning to vote Liberal.

But one revealing finding was that 49 per cent of sovereigntist respondents who indicated they were not fully decided or could change their mind said they were seriously considering voting Tory or might think seriously about it. In fact, 24 per cent of sovereigntists in the poll said they would be more likely to vote Conservative if they became convinced the Tories could win a majority.

Among federalists, 41 per cent said they would have voted Conservative, 28 per cent for the Liberals, 13 per cent for the NDP and nine per cent for the Bloc.
So who is the credible Federalist option in Quebec? I have always believed that the Liberals and PQ are mutal parasites who need and feed off each other. The best way to lower the separatist fervor in Quebec is to reduce both parties.
