Brazilian President’s Approval Rating Falls to 3.4%

BRASILIA – A new poll released on Tuesday found that just 3.4 percent of Brazilians approve of the job that President Michel Temer is doing, while 84.5 percent disapprove of his performance.

The poll, conducted by MDA for the National Transportation Association (CNT), found that 76.5 percent of respondents had a “negative” view of Temer’s administration, 18 percent considered it “average” and 3 percent had no opinion.

An MDA poll in February put Temer’s approval rating at 10.3 percent.

The latest poll asked people specifically about their opinion of Temer, finding that 84.5 percent had a negative perception of the president, compared to 62.4 percent who disapproved of him in February.

Just 10.1 percent of respondents, according to the latest poll, had a “positive” view of Temer and his job performance.

MDA conducted the poll of 2,002 voters in 137 cities nationwide Sept. 13-16.

The poll was conducted mostly after federal prosecutors filed new charges against Temer on Sept. 14, accusing him of obstruction of justice and conspiracy.

The Supreme Court will decide on Wednesday whether to send the case to Congress’s lower house, which has the constitutional authority to start impeachment proceedings against the president.

In July, prosecutors filed other corruption charges against Temer, but ruling coalition lawmakers rejected the charges.
