67%: Senate Scandal Hasn’t Hurt Lula’s Popularity in Brazil

Folha de S. Paulo front page
Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, the president of Brazil, has an approval rating of 67% and his image has not been tarnished by the corruption scandals involving his powerful ally, the president of the Brazilian senate, Senator José Sarney, according to the latest public opinion from DataFolha, published Sunday by daily Folha de S. Paulo.

According to the poll, Lula is three points below his best DataFolha reading from November 2008, when he measured 70%. These results coincide with other public opinion polls which reported a support as high as 80%.

DataFolha also points out that no Brazilian president since 1990 has managed 67% approval rating having been in office six and a half years.

The poll included 4.100 interviews in 171 cities taken between August 11 and 13 with a two percentage margin error.

"Lula da Silva has managed to overcome the Congress crisis untouched, untarnished," said Mauro Paulino, DataFolha director.

Paulino added that Lula's leadership is seen as unlinked with the corruption claims surrounding Senate president José Sarney.

This is also confirmed by the fact that 73% of those who support Lula also favor the ousting of Sarney from the Senate.
