Poll Shows Legault's Handling Of The Pandemic Has Been One Of The Most Popular In Canada

As recently as last year, Premier François Legault was enjoying tremendous poll ratings with 90% of Quebecers approving of his handling of the COVID-19 crisis.

Along with his provincial counterparts, Legault’s numbers have plunged amid the third wave of the pandemic. His coronavirus approval ratings fell from 66% last November to 63% in April, according to a recent study by the Angus Reid Institute.

Despite the dip, he’s still one of the most popular premiers in the country, especially compared to the wildly unpopular pandemic management of colleagues Jason Kenney of Alberta (23%), Doug Ford of Ontario (32%), Brian Pallister of Manitoba (37%), and Saskatchewan’s Scott Moe (46%).

B.C. Premier John Horgan came in second place with a 55% approval rating while those in the Atlantic provinces received a combined average rating of 73%.

The Angus Reid Institute contacted 1,577 Canadians between April 5 and 8 for its report.
