Protests hammer Mexican President's popularity

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

The popularity of Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto has sunk amid concerns about his handling of security problems and corruption, polls showed.

The approval rating of Peña Nieto fell from 50 percent in August to 39 percent in November in a poll by daily Reforma, while paper El Universal showed 41 percent approved of his leadership in November compared to 46 percent in August.

Reforma noted it was the lowest approval rating of a president recorded since 1996 as then President Ernesto Zedillo was struggling to contain a financial and economic crisis.
