Lula Approval Ratings Rose to Record 84 Percent. Brazilians Seem to Love State Intervention Announcements


Numbers from Instituto Sensus, graphs from Estado

Read this story in O Estado de S. Paulo about President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's approval ratings. Positive assessments on the Lula administration rose to a record 84 percent, according to Belo Horizonte, Brazil-based pollster Instituto Sensus. The poll was commissioned by the National industry Confederation and was released this morning in Brasilia.

One reader wrote on Estado's comments page: ''This is a joke.´´ It may well be, but citizens should credit Lula with having assumed a very proactive role during the crisis -- whether his purpose is the best for the country's interest is a question. Yet, we are still far from seeing the real impact of the wave of job dismissals on the president's popularity ratings.
