A public opinion poll, released Tuesday by the Public Opinion Research Institute (Ibope), showed only 14% of voting-age Brazilians saying the administration of President Michel Temer was “good” or “very good.” It was the first nationwide poll since Temer became full-fledged president following impeachment of predecessor Dilma Rousseff. A June poll, conducted when Temer was acting president, showed only 13% calling his government “good” or “very good.” Both the June poll and Tuesday’s survey showed 39% saying the administration was “poor.” Brazilians are facing a second straight year of recession, with unemployment still growing. According to poll-takers, voters are also weary of the many corruption scandals that have emerged in recent years. Temer has promised to clean up the federal government while proposing measures to increase investment and curb inflation.
