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.
The poll analyzed online data from 6,278 Canadians from February 26 to March 6. The poll has a margin of error of plus/minus 1.2 percent 19 times out of 20.
