Brazilians Approve Government Work on Hunger, But Not on Jobs

The latest CNI (National Industrial Confederation) opinion poll in Brazil has found that Brazilians hold the government’s efforts against hunger and poverty in high esteem.

They also see the effort to improve health and education by the administration favorably.


What the poll shows is that public opinion favorable of governmental action is stable, with prior polls showing the same results.


The only change was a spike in the evaluation of education which jumped from 15% to 21%, but has now returned to 15%. Hunger and poverty combat continued with the best evaluation at 34%, followed by health, 16%.


On the down side, the poll showed a drop in the evaluation of the government’s efforts to deal with unemployment (falling from 17% to 13%).


The CNI poll was conducted by Ibope (Instituto Brasileiro de Opinião Pública e Estatí­stica – Brazilian Institute of Public Opinion and Statistic). It interviewed 2,002 people over the age of 16 in 143 municipalities around the country between June 9 and 13. The poll has a 2.2 percentage point margin of error.
