In Popularity List Brazil’s Lula Comes at the Top. Bush and Chavez at the Bottom

Bush received by Lula in Brazil Brazil and Chile's presidents, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and Michelle Bachelet, are the leaders with the greatest support in Latin America according to the results of a public opinion poll from Corporacion Latinobarómetro, released this Friday, November 16, in Santiago de Chile.

At the other extreme are Cuba's Fidel Castro; Peru's, Alan Garcia; Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and George Bush from United States.

Lula managed 5.7 points and Bachelet 5.5, in a scale from 0 to 10, with 0 meaning "very bad" and 10, top marks.

"President Lula remains as the best rate leader of the region in the last two years," underlines the Latinobarómetro report which is based on 20.212 interviews in 18 Latin American countries done from September 7 to October 9.

Third rated was Colombia's Alvaro Uribe with 5.2; followed by Mexico's Felipe Calderón and Ecuador's Rafael Correa with 5.1 points each. Next in the list come Evo Morales from Bolivia with 5 points: Uruguay's Tabare Vazquez, 4.9 and Nestor Kirchner from Argentina with 4.8 points.

The elected leaders with the lowest rating are Peru's Alan Garcia, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez and the US George Bush with a 4.5 points rating.

Bottom of the list is Fidel Castro, who remains in hospital recovery following serious surgery 16 months ago and has been replaced by his brother Raul as caretaker president. The Cuban leader figures with 4.3 points.
