Moe sees approval rating slightly increase

According to the Agnus Reid Institute data, Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe has seen his approval rating increase.

Moe saw his approval increase from 43 per cent to 45 per cent.

That increase makes him the fifth most popular Premier in Canada behind the Premiers in Nova Scotia, Quebec, BC, and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Moe was only one of three Premiers to see his approval rating increase as only Fleury, and Alberta Premier Jason Kenney increased.

Despite the increase, the 45 percent approval rating is sharply decreased from the 61 percent approval rating in June of 2021.

Moe’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has declined to a new low. Only per cent of Saskatchewan residents believe Moe has done a good job. That is a decrease from 66 per cent in June 2021.

Saskatchewan residents are much more positive about how well Moe’s Sask Party has been doing with distributing vaccines and rapid tests, as well as the rollout of those vaccines.

Seven in ten (72%) say the government has done well getting rapid tests to where they are needed, and four in five (81%) say the government has done well-getting jabs into the arms of people across the province, this despite Saskatchewan having the second-lowest vaccination rate of any province.
