New poll suggests Manitoba premier’s approval ratings has hit historic low

A new opinion poll suggests Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger’s approval rating is at an all-time low.

Only 17 per cent of respondents to the Angus Reid survey said they approve of Selinger’s performance.

That is down from 30 per cent from a similar poll in September.

Selinger has been fending off a revolt by some caucus members, including five former cabinet ministers who resigned their portfolios last month.

Angus Reid surveyed 800 Manitobans between December 4 and 13 as part of an online panel.

The polling industry’s professional body, the Marketing Research and Intelligence Association, says online surveys cannot be assigned a margin of error as they are not a random sample, and therefore are not necessarily representative of the whole population.
