Chilean President’s Approval Rating Hits 3-Year High

SANTIAGO – Chilean President Michelle Bachelet’s approval rating hit 40 percent last week, the highest level since early 2015, a Plaza Publica Cadem poll released Monday shows.

At the same time, Bachelet’s disapproval rating stands at 48 percent, the lowest since February 2015, when the “Caso Caval” scandal led to an investigation of her son, Sebastian Davalos, and daughter-in-law, Natalia Compagnon.

Some 45 percent of respondents said Chile was on “the wrong track,” while 40 percent said the country was “going in the right direction,” Plaza Publica Cadem said.

Some 59 percent of respondents said their family’s economic situation was “very good or good,” while only 20 percent said it was “bad or very bad.”

The Plaza Publica Cadem survey found that 60 percent of respondents said they were “optimistic or very optimistic” about Chile’s future, while 15 percent said they were “pessimistic or very pessimistic.”

The poll of 700 adults was conducted Dec. 5-7 in 73 cities with populations of more than 50,000.

The polling firm said 503 interviews were conducted via telephone and 197 were done face to face with individuals in public areas.

The poll has a margin of error of 3.7 percent, with a 95 percent confidence level.
