Ontario liberal leader Kathleen Wynne said she almost stepped down because her approval rating was so low.

Her few supporters held her back though.

Via National Post:

Battered by some of the lowest approval ratings in the country, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne said Thursday she considered quitting before this June’s election, but was encouraged to soldier on by the backing of her colleagues.

In an interview with the National Post, Wynne also suggested that her own personal unpopularity can sometimes sting, saying she’s not so “callous” as to brush aside the run of negative polls.

Those numbers made her at least contemplate letting someone else lead the Liberal party into the June 7 vote, she said.

“I did think about it, yeah, I did think about it,” admitted Wynne, but indicated that others in the party wanted her to stay.
