We examine how three factors underlying support for a French nationalist party in Quebec -- nationalist preferences, leader evaluations, and redistributive preferences -- are conditioned by local context. In particular, we find that the influence of nationalist preferences and leadership evaluations vary according to the share of English speakers in the geographic unit and to the long-term unemployment rate.
