A new poll from the Angus Reid Institute found a lot of support for Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe heading into this year's provincial election.
According to a study released Monday, Moe had the support of 59 per cent of those who took part in the online survey, which was conducted between Aug. 26 to 30.
That was a small decline from May, where Moe received a 65 per cent approval rating.
The poll placed Moe squarely in the middle of other Canadian premiers. British Columbia Premier John Horgan received 69 per cent support in the poll, while Newfoundland Premier Andrew Furey received an approval rating of 34 per cent.
The poll found 38 per cent of people did not think Moe was doing a good job, and three per cent replied they weren't sure.
The Angus Reid Institute held the online survey from Aug. 26 to 30, 2020, among a representative randomized sample of 4,703 Canadian adults who are members of Angus Reid Forum.
In Saskatchewan, 446 people responded to the survey, giving it a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
The survey was self-commissioned and paid for by the Angus Reid Institute.
Sask. Party doubles NDP among decided voters, EKOS poll says
Meanwhile, a new poll from EKOS Research has the Saskatchewan Party more-than-doubling the NDP among decided voters, 60 per cent to 28 per cent, with 24 per cent undecided.
The EKOS poll was conducted from July 10 to Aug. 26. A random sample of 1,638 people aged 18 and over were surveyed.
The poll shows the Saskatchewan Party increasing its lead since a poll from June and July that had the NDP trailing by 25 points among decided voters, 57 per cent to 32 per cent.
Support for the Saskatchewan Party remained strong across the province. It led the NDP 74 per cent to 16 per cent in the West and holds 12- and 13-point leads in Regina and Saskatoon respectively.
The Saskatchewan Party's lead among men increased from the July poll. It now leads the NDP by 42 points among men, 65 to 23 per cent. The gap is tighter among women, where the NDP trails 52 to 37.
When age is factored in, the Saskatchewan Party holds its biggest lead in the 50-64 category, at 63 per cent to 26 per cent.
Among voters with a high school or college education, the Saskatchewan Party leads by more than 40 points. The gap is closer among voters with a university education, where the NDP trails by nine points.
The comparable margin of error was plus or minus 2.4 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
