Legault Has The Highest Approval Rating Of Any Canadian Premier: Poll

According to a new poll by the Angus Reid Institute, Quebec Premier François Legault has the highest approval rating of any Canadian premier.

At 66% approval, Legault is miles ahead of Ontario premier Doug Ford, whose approval rating has cratered to 35% in the past few months.

With such a high approval rating, it's no surprise that Legault's CAQ party is also the most beloved in Quebec, with support from 41% of voters surveyed. 

The poll claims that "the CAQ’s strength, from the perspective of Quebecers, is in its handling of COVID-19 and economic issues," with 74% and 61% approval ratings, respectively.

As for the other premiers, only British Columbia's John Horgan, Newfoundland and Labrador's Andrew Furey, and Saskatchewan's Scott Moe have an approval rating of over 60%. 

The premiers with the worst approval ratings are the aforementioned Doug Ford, Manitoba's Brian Pallister (33%), and Alberta's Jason Kenney (31%).
