Public acceptance of President Lenin Moreno exceeds 80% in the first 100 days of his term, according to the polling firms Market and the Center for Research and Specialized Studies (CIEES).
Market contends that 84.6% of citizens qualifies the president’s management as good. The credibility of the president stands at 84.4% and his popularity at 86.5%.
This company bases its percentages on a direct, face-to-face survey of individuals over 18 years of age, with a total of 1,280 valid cases in Quito, Guayaquil, Cuenca, Manta and Portoviejo during the third week of August. The margin of error is less than 3%.
Meanwhile, the Ciees says that 80% of the population qualifies Moreno’s work as positive, and the 77% also has a positive image of him. The survey was conducted on August 26 and 27, with 1,740 cases nationwide.
Blasco Peñaherrera Solah, of Market, believes that the increasing popularity of Moreno in almost 35% since the beginning of his term, is based on “the pursuit of a strengthened democracy.” (I)
