Tories Tank in Quebec!

From Reuters:

A CROP survey for La Presse newspaper put support for the federal Conservatives at 24 percent, down from 33 percent from the firm's last poll in late June. The separatist Bloc Quebecois was at 36 percent, up six points.

The Libs are up four points to 21 percent. The reason?

CROP vice-president Claude Gauthier said it was clear that people in Quebec -- one of the more left-leaning provinces -- disliked Harper's backing for Israeli attacks against Lebanon.

In separate news, the same poll said support for Quebec's provincial Liberal government was unchanged at 32 percent while the separatist Parti Quebecois gained two points to 37 percent.

How much does foriegn policy factor into a general election?
The one issue voters will join the Green Team, Liz & Buzz and the NDP.
