BRAZIL: Temer Is Most Unpopular President Since Dictatorship - Poll

(Agencia CMA Latam) - The negative evaluation of current Brazilian president Michel Temer rose to 73% from 69% in the previous poll, according to a Datafolha survey released Sunday. Brazilians' rejection to Temer is the highest since the end of the 21-year military dictatorship in the South American country, in 1985.

Only five percent of the respondents evaluated the current government as "good" or "optimal," a percentage lower than that of Datafolha's June survey.

According to the poll, 59% of the respondents evaluated that the best for the country is that Temer resigns as president immediately, against 37% who prefer that he finishes his mandate. Also, 4% failed to respond.

Temer was vice president under Dilma Rousseff, who was deposed in an impeachment process last year. In the last few months, Temer became a target in two criminal complaints involving corruption allegations. He is also moving ahead with reforms on labor and pension systems. While these reforms are welcomed by market players, both have motivated huge contrary demonstrations across the country.
