Despite the complications surrounding the current pandemic and despite the tough decision the Quebec government has had to make, Premier François Legault and the Coalition Avenir Québec seem to be more popular than ever.
On October 19, Montreal-based marketing firm, Léger, released a survey asking Quebecer how they feel about Legault and his handling of the coronavirus. It seems that even with the ongoing criticism directed at the provincial government, most Quebecers surveyed said they were satisfied with how Legault and his team have handled the pandemic.
According to the online poll conducted between October 16 and October 18, 78 per cent of 1, 512 people interviewed expressed satisfaction with the way the government has handled the pandemic.
When asked about the strict measures the government has put in place to fight COVID-19, 72 per cent of Quebec respondents said they were satisfied. And of the 72% who were satisfied, 26% said they were "very satisfied".
Only twenty-five per cent of Quebec respondents said they were "dissatisfied" with the Legault government's actions to fight COVID-19.
