It appears Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall has still got it.
For now, he holds the approval of 49 per cent of Saskatchewan residents, up from 45 per cent last quarter – his all-time low.
The results come from an online survey conducted between Sept. 5- 19, 2017, among a representative random sample of 5,466 Canadian adults who are part of the Angus Reid Forum.
Wall has remained at or near the top of the premiers’ popularity rankings since 2010, when Angus Reid began issuing results roughly every quarter.
The long-serving premier peaked at 71 per cent approval in 2011.
While Wall is on his way out, another name is debuting high on the list.
B.C. Premier John Horgan matched Wall’s approval level in his first time being included in the rankings.
Horgan took office in late July after striking a deal with the B.C. Green Party to resolve a hung parliament and defeat incumbent Liberal Premier Christy Clark.
Notably, neither Wall nor Horgan hold majority support for the job they’re doing in their respective provinces – and neither do any of their provincial counterparts across the country.
Ontario’s Kathleen Wynne, who faces an election in less than ten months, holds the lowest approval rating of any premier at 17 per cent.
Over in Alberta, Premier Rachel Notley saw a one point bump up to 29 per cent. Her approval has remained largely unchanged for seven quarters.
In the middle of the pack, four premiers hold the approval of roughly one-third of their provinces: Manitoba’s Brian Pallister, New Brunswick’s Brian Gallant, Quebec’s Phillipe Couillard and Nova Scotia’s Stephen McNeil
The survey was self-commissioned and paid for by Angus Reid Institute. It has a margin of error of +/- two percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
