QUEBEC - The head of Quebec's third-place Coalition party had a spring in his step today as he made a pitch to voters who he said may be fed up with the Liberals and the Parti Quebecois.

Francois Legault says his party offers an alternative to those wary of another referendum under the PQ and the "worn-out" Liberals.

The latest opinion polls suggest Legault's party is gaining in popularity ahead of Monday's vote.

But the Coalition party, which promises to set aside the debate over sovereignty to focus on the economy, still remains behind the PQ and the first-place Liberals.

Legault insists anything is still possible and says he still has a shot at becoming Quebec's next premier.

He says the momentum is on his side.

A new Leger Marketing poll pegged the Liberals at 38 per cent, compared with 29 per cent for the Parti Quebecois, 23 per cent for the Coalition party, and nine per cent for Quebec solidaire.

The April 2-3 online survey of 1,220 Quebecers was conducted for Le Journal de Montreal and is considered accurate within 3.2 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
