Poll suggests confidence in government at lowest ever point


Confidence in the government is at an all-time low, according to a new poll by the STEM agency. The survey suggests that confidence has sunk to 17%, a five-point drop since February. Confidence among followers of the senior ruling party, the Civic Democrats, dropped heavily over the course of the year, from 52% to 38%. The office of the president, meanwhile, showed a 70% confidence rating in September. The Senate and Chamber of Deputies showed results of 28 and 24%, respectively, meaning a decline of two points for the lower house.
