Brazilian President Michel Temer suffers from the lowest personal and political approval ratings in the nearly 20-year history of the CNT/MDA poll, the CNT said Tuesday. The latest CNT/MDA poll showed only 3.4% of respondents approving of the Temer Administration, with 75.6% disapproving, while 10.1% approve of Temer’s personal handling of the government, against 84.5% who disapprove. The approval ratings, on both counts, were the lowest for any president since the poll was first taken in 1998. The MDA organization takes the poll for the National Transportation Confederation (CNT). Temer has served for only a little more than a year. He assumed the presidency following impeachment of former President Dilma Rousseff in 2016. Temer has been dogged by accusations of corruption. He has also presided over a fractured administration, with several of his subordinates also accuse d of corruption. Brazil’s economy has slowly emerged from a long recession under Temer’s stewardship. However, unemployment remains high and GDP growth is only about 1.0% per year.
