Christy Clark and Gordon Campbell tied for worst premier of B.C.

Who has been the worst premier of British Columbia in the past three decades?

Insights West asked 815 B.C. adults this question in a new survey.

Christy Clark and Gordon Campbell topped the poll, with 25 percent of respondents singling them out.

Glen Clark was the worst premier for 18 percent. Bill Vander Zalm was the pick of 13 percent.

Insights West also asked respondents to select the best premier since 1986.

Mike Harcourt was the best premier for 19 percent, while Gordon Campbell was chosen by 13 percent and Bill Vander Zalm by 11 percent.

Eight percent picked Christy Clark as the best premier.

“British Columbians have an easier time selecting the recent heads of government they dislike,” Mario Canseco, vice president for public affairs at Insights West, said in a news release. “The level of undecided respondents on the Best Premier question is 40%, but just 6% on the Worst Premier question.”

The online study was conducted July 22 to 25. Its margin of error is 3.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.

Mr Hui,

Do companies feed "journalists" meaningless data to sensationalize in return for publicity?

This is not news: it is propaganda spin from a group more interested in scoring brownie points with the left than providing useful data. Didn't these same drones polls predict an NDP victory last provincial election.

What a joke. Of course Campbell & Clark are going to be named worst Premier, when this poll is largely made up of NDP whiners, who are still bitter about 2013. Let's be serious though, how can VanderZalm NOT be the worst!?

Imagine being in a cabinet under a premier that let the province drift for two years before calling an election, couldn't win her seat, and has cost us millions in legal fees to date. Must suck not having a spine.

Christy Clark should resign and Bill Bennett should be fired! The Mount Polley mine disaster is a DISASTER and they wring their hands and apologize. We are governed by doofuses!
