Bolsonaro's Popularity Dips after September 7 Demonstrations

The president's disapproval sets record at 53% says Datafolha; approval drops to 22%

São Paulo

After promoting a coup at the September 7 demonstrations, President Jair Bolsonaro's disapproval ratings continue to rise. The index of those who see him as bad or terrible reached 53%, the worst ever recorded in his mandate, Datafolha points out.

Although within the margin of error of two points, an oscillation in relation to the record verified in a survey carried out in July, of 51% of disapproval, continues the upward curve since December 2020.

The institute polled 3,667 people from the 13th to the 15th of this month.

Bolsonaro is rated good or great by 22%, compared to 24% in the previous round, which was already its lowest mark; the share of those who consider him regular remained at 24%.

This survey identified a more significant increase in rejection among those who earn from 5 to 10 indexed rates (41% to 50%, from July until now) and among those over 60 years old (45% to 51%).

Bolsonaro's disapproval ratings are rising in the aggregate of the North and Center-West regions (16%), where he usually has more support. In his weekly livestream, he stated that "Datafolha is not a parameter for anything."
