Three days before the Quebec election, Philippe Couillard’s Liberals are still ahead in the polls.

What’s more, the CAQ has taken a bite out of the Parti Quebecois’ hefty francophone support.

If Quebecers went to the polls today , the Liberals would form a government with 38%, according to a Leger poll conducted on behalf of QMI Agency.

Pauline Marois’ Parti Quebecois netted 29%, but appears to have lost some of its staunch francophone support to the CAQ.

Francois Legault’s CAQ has seen its support jump from 15% to 23% in the last 10 days, which Leger credits to Legault's strong performance in the second leaders’ debate.

Quebec Solidaire’s remains stable at 9%.

Despite the Liberal lead, the fight for francophone voters will likely mean a tight race to the end, Leger predicted.

“In percentage terms, the Liberal advance is important, but when it comes to the number of seats, things become much less certain,” said pollster Jean-Marc Leger.

Except for Legault, the leaders are less popular their parties, which paints an interesting picture about this election, Leger said.

“It’s a disappointing campaign for people. There’s no leader who has succeeded in connecting with the people.”
