Dow Jones – Approval Rating For Ecuador’s Correa Continues To Slide – Poll

QUITO – Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa’s approval ratings fell again in November, according to a Cedatos-Gallup International poll released Wednesday.

The poll said 42% of the 2,104 people surveyed approved of Correa, down from 44% in October and sharply down from 70% in January 2009.

The poll, taken from Nov. 27 to Nov. 30, put Correa’s credibility rating at 40% in November, unchanged from October.

Correa’s popularity has fallen amid corruption scandals, high unemployment, the global economic crisis and electricity shortages.

The Cedatos-Gallup poll said it has a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.

Correa, a U.S.-trained economist and self-avowed socialist, was re-elected for a second four-year term in April 2009.
