N.L.’s Dwight Ball second from bottom in premiers’ popularity 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 late-July. 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 Tuesday.

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