Amid the institutional crisis caused by President Jair Bolsonaro, the image of Brazil's legislative branch has eroded.
For 44% of Brazilians, the work of federal congresspersons and senators is bad or terrible.
This is according to a Datafolha survey carried out between the 13th and 15th of September.
In December 2019, 45% thought the congressional work was bad or terrible, numerically the worst mark of the current legislature. The approval rating is worsening: in July, 38% of Brazilians disapproved of congress members.
