Legault Polls: Francois Legault and is party CAQ are leading massively in the latest poll but the Francois Legault Approval Rating is at the lowest since his election as Premier of Quebec.
In 2014 none expected Francois Legault and his Coalition Avenir Quebec to form government in Quebec despite his party winning 22 seats. In 2014, the politics of Quebec was dominated by Liberals or the Parti Québécois and CAQ was 3rd in the political landscape of Quebec.
However, in 2018 everything changed. The Quebec Election Polls in 2018 predicted a close fight between the three parties, CAQ, PLQ, and PQ with CAQ under Francois Legault having an edge. The result, however, was different for PLQ and Parti Quebecois.
CAQ with a 37.4% vote share won 74 seats, PLQ the incumbents polled only 24.8% and won only 31 seats, and one time the strongest party in Quebec, Parti Quebecois could win only 10 seats.
After 4 years of CAQ government, Quebec is once again going to vote to elect its new government. This time the polls have indicated Parti Quebecois to have almost no presence in Quebec after the election while the once unknown, PCQ may be the biggest winner in the election in terms of vote share, however, may fail to win seats.
The ruling CAQ under Francois Legault is in a better place and may return to power with a bigger margin.
