WINNIPEG — Premier Greg Selinger’s popularity is slowly rising in Manitoba, but still remains the lowest in Canada among premiers.

A new Angus Reid poll shows Selinger only saw a small bump of five percent in his popularity. The premier’s approval rating now sits at 22 percent compared to December 2014.

Selinger recently fended off a NDP leadership challenge on March 8 to hold onto his job, winning by 33 votes.

Sixty-three percent of respondents disapprove of the job Selinger is doing, while eight percent aren’t sure.

Next to Selinger, B.C. Premier Christy Clark has the second-lowest approval rating at 33 percent.
