With most of the polls reporting, the fairly final election results are as follows:
- Liberals – 76 seats – 45.84% of popular vote
- Parti Québécois – 45 seats – 33.25% of popular vote
- Action Démocratique – 4 seats – 18.28% of popular vote
The race in this election was pretty close all along, with Charest and the Liberals really only gaining momentum after the debate, and pulling away in the past 3-4 days. Tonight, however, the biggest race was between the networks, to see who would predict the outcome the soonest after polls closed.
And all the candidates for Premier have really bad hair. Dumont’s isn’t all that bad, if a little stiff. But Charest’s still got the chia-pet thing going on, and Landry, oh that combover is painful!
