Quebec's François Legault Is One Of The Most Popular Premiers In Canada Right Now

Despite criticism of his government's François Legault remains one of the most popular premiers in Canada, according to a poll by the Angus Reid Institute.

65% of Quebecers who responded to the survey approve of Legault. That's compared to an approval rating of 66% for Doug Ford among Ontarians and 69% for B.C.'s John Horgan.

65% Legault's approval rate

Angus Reid points to low case numbers this summer and a plan to better protect CHSLD residents from a second wave of COVID-19 as possible reasons for Legault's popularity.

Occupying the last places in the popularity contest are Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, and Newfoundland & Labrador Premier Andrew Furey with 44%, 42%, and 34% approval, respectively (though Angus Reid chalks Furey's poll numbers up to his newcomer status).

Angus Reid polled 4,703 Canadians, members of its forums, between August 26 and 30 for this report.
