Public support for the embattled administration of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff has once again slipped into single digits, according to a poll released Tuesday by the Public Opinion Research Institute (Ibope). The poll showed that only 9% of voting-age Brazilians consider the administration “good” or “very good,” down from 10% in a similar poll in September. The percentage calling the administration “poor” or “very poor” rose to a record 70% from 69% in September. The poll was conducted by Ibope for the National Confederation of Industries (CNI). The poll was taken after Brazil’s Congress initiated impeachment proceedings against the President. Rousseff has suffered from a spreading scandal at state-run oil company Petrobras as well as a declining economy. In Congress, she has been accused of tolerating graft in her administration and misusing her budgetary authority.
