Two polls on the Special Law Bill 78 published in the Le Soleil and La Presse dailies underrepresented those aged 18-24. This caused an “important distortion” in the poll’s results.
Certain observers and polling experts, like Pierre Drouilly of l’Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) and blogger-reporter Jean-François Lisée, have in turn criticised the methods used by the polling firm CROP to survey the population about Bill 78.
In the poll, published May 26, only 3% of respondents were aged 18 to 24, whereas that age group represents 11% of the overall population, according to Statistics Canada. This proportion was also present in the poll undertaken the previous week, according to Mr. Lisée.
