People's Party Leader Maxime Bernier is running neck-and-neck with the Conservatives in his southeastern Quebec riding, suggests a new Mainstreet Research poll for iPolitics.

Bernier, a one time cabinet minister and Conservative leadership candidate, was the choice of 28.7 per cent of respondents in the phone survey of 640 voters in Beauce, though the Tories were close behind at 27.7 per cent. With a margin of error of 3.87 per cent, Bernier's lead is statistically insignificant.

Furthermore, 16.3 per cent of respondents said they were undecided, while 16 per cent backed the Liberals, with the Bloc Québécois far back at 4.9 per cent. The Greens scored 3.2 per cent, while the NDP was relegated to last with 1.4 per cent.
