Public support for Brazilian President Michel Temer has hit a new low, according to a poll released Monday by the Datafolha organization. The nationwide poll of more than 2,700 voting-age Brazilians showed only 7% saying the administration was “good” or “very good.” That figure was down from 9% in a similar poll in April. The support level was the lowest for any Brazilian president in 28 years. The latest poll showed 69% of respondents calling the administration “poor” or “very poor.” That figure was up from 61% in April. The poll follows weeks of new allegations of corruption aimed at Temer and some of his assistants. Aside from the persistent problem of corruption in government, Brazilians are also dissatisfied with the slow pace of recovery from a long recession, accor ding to Datafolha. Temer assumed the office in 2016 after his predescessor, Dilma Rousseff, was impeached. His term is due to end in 2018.
