Poll Shows Dominicans Most Worried About Crime, Economy

SANTO DOMINGO – More than 64 percent of Dominicans believe that the country’s biggest problem is crime, closely followed by the economy, according to a Gallup poll published Monday in the daily Hoy.

For 62 percent of respondents, the economic situation is “bad” or “very bad,” while only 15 percent consider it “good.”

Other problems noted by the Dominican population are frequent power blackouts and difficulty in obtaining health care.

Education, measures in favor of women and public works are the three areas in which the administration of President Danilo Medina has performed best.

Among the most respected Cabinet members, Education Minister Carlos Amarante topped the list with a positive rating from 35.8 percent of respondents.

Public Works Minister Gonzalo Castillo came in a distant second, with an approval rating of 14.1 percent.

The Gallup poll was taken with a sample of 1,200 people consulted by means of questionnaires distributed throughout the country between Aug. 29-Sept. 2.
