British Columbia's NDP premier, John Horgan, and his Saskatchewan counterpart, Scott Moe, are tied in popularity at 52 per cent. The wicked witch of the west, Rachel Notley, polled a meagre 33 per cent while Ontario's Wynne cinched last place in the ditch with just 19 per cent.
The good news is that Horgan's numbers are holding up, perhaps even bolstered, by British Columbia's stand against the Notley/Trudeau Kinder Morgan pipeline.
Shachi Kurl, executive director of the Angus Reid Institute, said Horgan's increased approval shows that the Alberta-B.C. pipeline battle isn't hurting Horgan's approval rate.
"If anything, it's probably stoked a little bit of enthusiasm for the job Horgan is doing," she said.
