Worst PM Since 1968

Data comes from an Angus Reid online poll of 1,510 Canadian adults taken from August 30 – August 31, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 2.5 per cent, 19 times out of 20.

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.
