Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall’s heads the pack while fellow Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger continues to watch his popularity drop.

That’s according to a new a new Angus Reid Global poll released today.

The online survey of a representative national sample of 6,559 Canadian adults shows Saskatchewan is the only province where a majority of respondents (68%) are satisfied with the performance of their premier.

Meanwhile, Selinger continues to struggle with voter approval the poll taken Sept. 5 and Sept. 13 says.

Selinger places near the back of the back with 25 per cent voter approval.

Angus Reid says this represents a five point drop in voter approval since June 2013, a continuing slide that can be attributable to his handling of Manitoba’s recent PST increase.

The poll also says Manitoba’s Progressive Conservative leader Brian Pallister holds a higher rating (50%) than Selinger.

The survey was conducted from randomly selected Canadian adults who are Angus Reid Forum panelists. The margin of error — which measures sampling variability — is +/- 1.2%, 19 times out of 20. The results have been statistically weighted according to the most current education, age, gender and region Census data to ensure a sample representative of the entire adult population of Canada.
