Following the abandonment of Bernard Drainville from the race for the leadership of the Parti Québécois, a new CROP survey tell about the lost of momentum by Pierre Karl Peladeau to eventually overcome the current Prime Minister.
According to the the survey, PKP would get 30% of votes at a general election against Philippe Couillard who would get 33%. The large rise compared to the previous survey is the one of Alexandre Cloutier who is almost on par with PKP with 28% of the votes.
The survey put Bernard Drainville third with only 24% of the votes and his election as PQ leader would have allowed Couillard majority victory.
His decision to quit the race is then entirely justified…
If the population does not favor Pierre Karl Peladeau as a potential Prime Minister, members of the PQ do it because 39% of them would have elected him as leader.
The leadership race is far from over and will now continue between two candidates, Pierre Karl Peladeau against Alexandre Cloutier. Everything now depends on the energy reserves that Alexander has in reserve…
The first round of voting will be held from Wednesday, May 13 to Friday, May 15. If no candidate obtains 50% + 1 of the votes cast, a second round will be held between Wednesday May 20 to Friday, May 22.
To be continued.
