Scott Moe is the most popular premier in the country, according to a new poll.

The quarterly poll by Dart Insight and Communications ranks premiers on their approval ratings. This quarter Moe received a 59 per cent approval, the highest of the premiers listed.

Moe's number is up three points from the last poll — taken in December — and a personal best for him, according to Dart Insight and Communications, which conducted the poll.

Approval ratings were not given for P.E.I., Nunavut, Yukon or Northwest Territories due to low sample sizes.

The poll was conducted from March 8 to 14. Dart surveyed 5,450 adult Canadians who are members of Maru/Blue's Online panel. The poll is accurate to within +/ - 1.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, according to DART.
