More than a quarter of Canadians think Stephen Harper is the worst prime minister since 1968, according to a new poll from Angus Reid.

The findings come hot on the heels of a poll from Abacus Data which found 50 per cent of Canadians disapprove of Harper. The findings also agree with an informal poll on the best prime minister ever conducted by HuffPost Canada earlier this year in which readers ranked Harper dead last.

In the Angus Reid survey, Harper was judged most harshly by Atlantic Canadians, Quebecers and British Columbians.

The survey also asked who Canada's best prime minister since 1968 has been, and Harper came out much better here. Nearly 16 per cent of Canadians ranked Harper best. The prime minister's numbers were buoyed primarily by support from those who cast votes for the Conservatives during the last federal election.
