Canada's Premiers And How They Rank

Last time the numbers were out in December, Wall's rating was slightly higher at 67 per cent.

The next closest premier was David Alward from New Brunswick who finished second in the polls. By comparison, he garnered a measly 41 per cent approval rating.

In Saskatchewan, the approval rating for the incoming leader of the opposition and NDP Party, Cam Broten, was at 32 per cent.

Those numbers are still much higher than those garnered by Alberta Premier Alison Redford, who continues to free-fall in opinion polls, reaching an all-time low of 29 per cent approval rating.

By comparison, Alberta's leader of the opposition and Wildrose Party leader Danielle Smith came in second across the country with an approval rating of 53 per cent.
