NDP Surge In Quebec
According to the latest Le Devoir poll, the NDP have pulled even with the Liberals in Quebec with a projected 21% of the popular vote, where the Tories are down 3% since 2008. How would this affect seat counts where an election held today? The NDP would add a Liberal seat and a Bloc seat, the Tories would remain unchanged. This is in all likelihood an outlier poll, as I don't expect the dippers to sustain that level of support in the long term. One thing is clear, a surge in NDP numbers in Quebec hurts the Liberals more than the Conservatives.
