Poor rat­ing

The Labradorian - - FRONT PAGE -

Pre­mier Dwight Ball is not a very pop­u­lar pre­mier, ac­cord­ing to a re­cent poll.

Pre­mier Dwight Ball is the sec­ond least pop­u­lar pre­mier in this coun­try, ac­cord­ing to an An­gus Reid poll.

The only pre­mier less pop­u­lar than Ball is On­tario’s Kath­leen Wynne.

“Dwight Ball de­cided to shake up his cabi­net in lateJuly. His Fi­nance Min­is­ter re­signed af­ter just 19 months on the job, fac­ing ‘frus­tra­tion and anger’ from con­stituents over the gov­ern­ment’s un­pop­u­lar aus­ter­ity mea­sures. His per­sonal ap­proval rat­ing drops one point to 27 per cent,” noted the lat­est anal­y­sis of quar­terly polling data by the An­gus Reid In­sti­tute re­leased last Tues­day.

Saskatchewan’s Brad Wall is the most pop­u­lar pre­mier, two months af­ter he an­nounced his res­ig­na­tion as pre­mier, and re­tire­ment from pol­i­tics.
