Back in December Termer had a 13 percent approval and 46 percent disapproval ratings.

Sao Pãolo – The popularity of Brazil’s president Michel Termer has fallen to 10 percent, according to the latest poll taken by the Ibope Institute. The results also showed that 55 percent of Brazilians think that Temer’s term so far, can be graded as bad or terrible.

Back in December Termer had a 13 percent approval and 46 percent disapproval ratings.

Tomorrow, the Highest Electoral Tribunal (TSE) will begin to deliberations on whether the election of former president Dilma Rousseff and Termer as her vice-president in 2014  should be annulled, due to the alleged used of illicit funds, which could result in Termer being removed as president.

Ibope surveyed 2,000 people. The error margin of the poll is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
