Currently, there's a tie for Canada's most popular premier between John Horgan and Quebec's Francois Legault.

Premier Brian Pallister of Manitoba comes in last, with a current approval rating of 32%, with Jason Kenney of Alberta following behind him.

The study says that Ford experienced a "strong point" in the early days of the pandemic, with higher approval ratings. 

According to Angus Reid, his ratings fell by 11 points in the last three months alone.

The study cites Ford's pandemic response, with "second wave highs," as the reason for the drop in approval.
