To Quebecois, Dion =/= Sponsorship

Granted, it is hard to know whether or not we ought to take it seriously. After all, they could just be trying to influence the leadership. Then again, it could be completely honest and an actual leak.

But it is useful insofar as it contains some results from their focus groups. To me, the most relevant finding is that Quebeckers don't consider Dion to be tied to the sponsorship scandal. This is actually contrary to the received wisdom many people have been spreading - namely, that since Dion is a Quebec Liberal who is linked to the government that started the sponsorship program, he could never win Quebec.

It actually seems as if he stands a better chance of winning Quebec than any other candidate. Just something to keep in mind.
