A new poll from marketing research company Insights West suggests 62 per cent – or three in five – of B.C. residents disapprove of Premier Christy Clark’s leadership.

Additionally, half of British Columbians say their opinion of Clark has worsened over the last six months.

The poll that was created in association with Business in Vancouver took data from November 9 to 14 and polled 812 adults in the province.

Those polled thought Clark performed especially poorly in the area of housing, poverty, and homelessness in the province, with a whopping 73 per cent disapproval rate, earning her a “D” grade.

In all of the issues residents were polled on, the highest level of support the premier garnered was 35 per cent approval in crime and public safety.

The development of liquified natural gas in British Columbia shows sweeping dissatisfaction among residents as well, with nearly half of those polled saying the B.C. Liberals did a bad job.

The lowest-ranked decisions were the handling of foreign home ownership (12 per cent approval rate) and managing Translink (10 per cent approval rate).

If an election were held tomorrow, 39 per cent would vote for the NDP, according to the poll.
