According to the consultancy, based on a survey carried out between December 2 and 20, judgments about the president’s performance stand at 39% approval and 38% disapproval. While intermediate opinions reach 22%.
According to these figures, the approval of President Lacalle Pou falls 5 points in reference to the last poll released, but disapproval also falls 2 points, which in the previous measurement had crossed the symbolic barrier of 40%.
This is the moment of the lowest popularity of the president since the beginning of the administration.
Equipos analyzes that these data are strongly linked to the political situation: “looking at the data in perspective, since October (coinciding with the start of the “Astesiano case”) the president lost 10 points of approval, increased disapproval by 6, and as a consequence its net balance went from +17 at the beginning of October to +1 at the end of the year” says Equipos Consultores in its latest report.
Depending on the ideological orientation of those surveyed, opinions change significantly. Among those who define themselves as “left” or “center left”, disapproval of Lacalle Pou is 74%. While among those who define themselves as “right” or “center right” approval reaches 72%. “In the” center “of the electorate, the president receives divided evaluations of a positive balance: 37% approval and 28% disapproval” analyzed Equipos.
In the technical sheet of the survey it appears that the question asked to the respondents was:
“You. Do you approve, neither approve nor disapprove, or disapprove of the way in which Luis Lacalle Pou is performing as president? (Response categories: 1. Approve, 2. Neither approve nor disapprove, 3. Disapprove, 4. Don’t know / don’t answer)”.
