Poll: Clark comes second

Newly-elected BC premier Christy Clark enjoyed a post-election popularity surge, a new Angus Reid Public Opinion poll indicates.

Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall remains the most popular provincial head of government in Canada, while newly-elected BC premier Christy Clark enjoyed a post-election popularity surge, a new Angus Reid Public Opinion poll indicates.

The online survey of a representative national sample of 6,540 Canadian adults asked respondents in nine provinces about the performance of their premiers and provincial party leaders between May 31 and June 4, 2013.

Saskatchewan was the only province where a majority of respondents (67 per cent) are satisfied with the performance of the premier.

Ranking second was B.C. Premier Christy Clark with an approval rating of 45 per cent. Clark saw a 20 per cent increase in job approval rating since April 2013.

B.C. Green Party Leader Jane Sterk’s approval increased from 32 per cent to 43 per cent, while NDP leader and leader of the official opposition Adrian Dix saw his approval fall from 49 per cent to 35 per cent.
