Rousseff approval ratings go up


Published

President Dilma Rousseff’s approval ratings have gone up according to a poll by Ibope published for the National Confederation of Industries (CNI).

The poll shows that the president’s approval rating has gone up from 72% in December to 77% today. She even beats her former boss, ex president, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, with 60% thinking she is doing as good as, if not better, job.

The president continues to feature more positively in her approval ratings than her government; they remain on 56% approval rating, the same as December.

The poll does, however, contain some disturbing news. As many as 65% disapprove of the government’s tax policies, 63% disapprove of the health policies and 61% disapprove of policies related to public safety.

The government does better on hunger and poverty where they get a 59% approval rating, on the environment 53% approve and on unemployment 53% approve.
