Poll Reveals: Majority of Brazilians Don’t Trust Lula

The latest public opinion poll by Brazil’s National Industrial Confederation, conducted by Ibope, shows that president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva’s popularity has reached a new low.

For the first time the number of interviewees who said they do not trust Lula is bigger than the number who say they do. The poll found that while 44% said they trusted Lula, 51% said they did not. In June, the respective numbers were: 56% trusted Lula, 38% did not.


The CNI/Ibope poll also found a rising feeling of disappointment with regard to the Lula government. In June, 31% said it was better than they expected. In the latest poll, that number fell to 23%. And the number who said the Lula government was worse than expected jumped from 34% to 44%.


Armando Monteiro Neto, president of the CNI, pointed out that the poll also found that although the number of people who said they are aware of the political crisis has risen significantly, the economy remains unaffected and continues its strong performance.


The CNI/Ibope poll interviewed 2,002 people, aged 16 or over, in 143 municipalities, between September 8 and 12. The margin of error is two percentage points.
