Quebec Election Polls 2022: Insights and Observations

The CAQ is all set to return to power as they sustain their vote share while a Conservative surge is fragmenting the opposition swinging numerous marginal seats in favor of CAQ. Here are a few observations and Insights.

  1. CAQ is projected to win 40% vote share while Conservatives may win a higher vote share compared to the Liberals. However, an analysis of Google search and Polling data is predicting a vote share loss for CAQ and Quebec Solidaire.
  2. In the Mainstreet polls, CAQ has fallen from 41.8% to 38.8% in one week. Conservatives have risen from 17.8% to 19.5% in one week.
  3. The Conservative performance in Quebec is truly mindboggling. The PCQ leads Liberals amongst 18-34-year-olds by 15% points.
  4. As a consequence, the once-powerful Liberal party in Quebec may lose its support base in both Montreal and Laval. The rise of the Conservatives in Montreal is directly hurting the Liberals and is benefitting the CAQ. As per the latest polls, of the 6 seats in Laval, CAQ may win 5 and Liberals may win only 1. In 2018 it was 5 for PLQ in Laval.
  5. Montreal has always been a strong base for the Liberals. In 2018, Liberals won 19, CAQ won 2 and 6 seats were won by the QS. In 2022, Liberals are projected to win about 12-13 seats in Montreal. CAQ or QS may emerge victorious in the rest.
  6. Despite PCQ in a position of winning a 20% vote share, they are unlikely to win any seats. However, they will be harming PLQ in their traditional strongholds and indirectly helping CAQ win more seats.
  7. Overall, around 50% of the Quebecers approve of the working of Francois Legault. Around 46% are not satisfied with the work of the incumbent Premier. This will not matter in the end as the opposition is completely fragmented. Read about Francois Legault and His approval ratings
  8. Healthcare, housing, and taxes remain the most important issue of the election with healthcare being the priority. More women consider healthcare to be the topmost priority while for men it is taxes and housing.
  9. Talking about voters among non-francophones is an advantage for Liberals with CAQ being the least favorite.

Quebec Election 2022 Polls: What are the Chances of Each Political Party?

CAQ: Since the win in the 2018 election, Francois Legault and his party Coalition Avenir Quebec has been leading in all the polls and the popularity of CAQ has been surging all over Quebec except in Montreal where they have underperformed even in the last election.

PLQ: The Liberals under Dominique Anglade are not in the position to challenge the might of CAQ as of now. The 2018 election saw Liberals decline from 68 seats to 31. They were able to hold on to their base only in Montreal and 2022 may be worse if they fail to convince voters outside Montreal.

PQ: Party Quebecois which has been in power and also been the main opposition party has been on a decline since 2018. The party managed to win 10 seats with around 18% vote share in 2018 and now the polls have predicted them to be winning less than 10% of total votes which may result in lesser seats compared to 2018.

PCQ: The Conservatives have been nowhere in the scene in the 2018 election but the pandemic has helped them increase their vote base in Quebec. Their anti-lockdown policy is popular among a certain section go the Quebecers. Led by Eric Duhaime, the Conservative party is set to gain a lot, the latest poll gives it over 20% vote share. In 2018 the party was completely irrelevant. However, it may not be enough for it to come to power.
