Majority of Brazilians Oppose Lula’s Anti-Hunger Programs

For the first time, negative evaluations by the Brazilian population with regard to the federal government’s programs to combat hunger and poverty outweighed positive ones.

This was revealed in the 11th poll conducted by the Brazilian Institute of Public Opinion and Statistics (Ibope) at the behest of the National Confederation of Industry (CNI).


According to the survey, the results of which were announced Wednesday, September 21, 43% of the people interviewed currently approve these social programs, while 52% disapprove, and 5% have no opinion.


This finding represents a 9% drop in the approval rating in relation to the previous poll, in June. On that occasion, 52% of the people interviewed approved what the government is doing in this area. In December, 2003, 73% of the people interviewed said they approved these programs.


As for the government’s activities in the area of public safety, the study registered an disapproval rating of 63%, 3% lower than in June, when 66% criticized the government’s performance in this sphere.


The survey registered a 30% approval rating, as against 28% in June. In December, 2003, 38% of the people interviewed approved what the government was doing in this area.


Altogether, 2002 people aged 16 or more were interviewed in 143 municipalities between September 8 and 12. The margin of error in the study is 2%, up or down.
