Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is feeling the political effects of budget cuts his government announced in October, with his approval rating plummeting 15 percentage points in a matter of months.

Kenney is now the third-least popular premier among the provinces included in the poll conducted by DART and Maru/Blue Voice Canada and provided exclusively to Postmedia. That's a startling drop from September when Kenney was third from the top, behind Quebec Premier François Legault and Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe.

The slide in approval comes in the wake of a United Conservative government budget that plans to bring expenditures $1.3 billion below last year's spending levels. Over the next four years, the government expects to cut $4 billion worth of provincial spending.
