Jason Kenney’s approval rating down: poll

A new poll shows Premier Jason Kenney’s honeymoon may be ending.

The poll conducted by DART shows the premier has fallen from a 55 per cent approval ranking in September to 40 per cent in December.

DART calls this an “unprecedented plummet over the last three months.”

The poll shows those 55 and over have the most support for the leader, with 24 per cent strongly approving and another 32 per cent moderately approving. About 13 per cent moderately disapprove in the demograph and 28 per cent strongly disapprove, while two per cent were unsure.

Kenney is least popular among those between 18 to 34, with six per cent who strongly approve of the leader. Another 14 per cent moderately approve, 21 per cent moderately disapprove and 50 per cent strongly disapprove, while nine per cent were unsure in the age category.

Those between the ages of 35 to 54 are in the middle of the pack at 13 per cent strongly approve. About 32 per cent moderately approve, 22 per cent moderately disapprove and 26 per cent strongly disapprove and seven per cent unsure.

The survey was conducted among 5,035 randomly selected Canadian adults between Nov. 27 to Dec. 3.
