Amid the worsening of the coronavirus pandemic in Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro has maintained his assessment at the best level since the beginning of his administration. This is what reveals a national survey by Datafolha.

37% of Brazilians think the president is excellent or good, the same level as the round of 29 and 30 August. Those who see it as bad or terrible ranged from 34% to 32%, and those who perceive it as regular, from 27% to 29%.

And 52% answered that the president is not to blame for the more than 181,000 deaths caused by Covid in the country so far. In August, 47% exempted the president.
