Brazil's Temer Sees Approval Rate Drop to 10 Percent

SAO PAULO

A new poll shows the popularity of Brazilian President Michel Temer falling to just 10 percent.

The Instituto Ibope poll published on Friday also finds that 55 percent of Brazilians believe Temer's performance as president is either bad or terrible.

In December, Temer's approval was at 13 percent and his disapproval was at 46 percent.

Brazil's top electoral court next week will start deciding whether the ticket that elected Temer and former President Dilma Rousseff in 2014 should be annulled due to alleged illegal campaign financing. That could lead to his removal.

Ibope interviewed 2,000 people and the poll's margin of error is 2 percentage points.

Only one in 10 Brazilians think President Michel Temer's government is doing a good job, according to a new poll Friday.

The Ibope poll commissioned by Brazil's National Confederation of Industry found just 31 percent consider Temer's government is doing an acceptable job, while 55 percent call the performance bad or terrible, and 10 percent said it was good or excellent.

The result maintained the downward slide of Temer's popularity. In December, the same polling organization found 13 percent considered he was doing a good job and in October it was 14 percent.
