Brazilian Polls: Lula High, But Government Low

    The 74th CNT/Sensus survey, released yesterday, February 22, in Brazil, indicates that the indices evaluating President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s Administration remain stable. For 42.6% of the interviewees, the government’s performance is positive.

    In the previous survey, released in December, 2004, this percentage stood at 44.5%. The discrepancy falls within the study’s 3% margin of error.


    The same is true of the President’s personal performance, for which positive approval ratings rose from 65.4% to 66.1% over the same period. Negative ratings, in turn, fell from 26.7% to 26.5%.


    The Index of Citizen Satisfaction (ISC) with regard to each individual’s personal economic situation also remains stable. It was 37.75% in December, 2004, and is now 37.5%. With regard to the social situation there was a positive variation over the same period, from 32% to 34.75%.


    For the president of the National Confederation of Transport (CNT), Clésio Andrade, the positive evaluation of the social situation reflects the creation of employment in the country.


    “President Lula’s position remains comfortable, because the economy grew and generated jobs,” Andrade observed.


    The survey covered two thousand people in 24 states in the five regions of Brazil, between the days of February 15-17.
