Poll: Approval rating for Mexican president falls to 23 pct
MEXICO CITY (AP) — A new poll suggests approval ratings for Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto have fallen to 23 percent, while 74 percent disapprove of the job he is doing.
The level is the lowest since just after Pena Nieto took office in December 2012, when he got a 50-percent approval rating in the same poll.
The poll published Thursday by the newspaper Reforma had a margin of error of 3.3 percent. Pollsters interviewed 1,200 people nationwide between Augusto 4 and 7.
Reforma says it’s the lowest approval rating for a president since it began publishing similar polls in 1995, just after the country’s massive peso devaluation.
