  • Poroshenko less popular than Yanukovich - Gallup

    Ukrainians Disillusioned With Leadership

    - 17% approve of Poroshenko's job performance
    - 8% confident in their national government
    - 5% say government doing enough to fight corruption

    Despite signs last year that Ukraine's then-new president was starting to rebuild Ukrainians' trust in their leadership, President Petro Poroshenko is now less popular than his predecessor Viktor Yanukovych was before he was ousted. After more than a year in office, 17% of Ukrainians approve of the job that Poroshenko is doing. This approval rating is down sharply from 47% a few months after his election in May 2014.

        Recent poll did not include Donetsk or Lugansk, where Poroshenko is likely less popular than a cold water enema..

          That by itself would likely explain the difference.

          Noting further implied.

            Actually, it wouldn't. If you factored in eastern Ukraine, Poroshenko's popularity would be even lower than the current 17%.

              Ah - my mistake,

              so the "47 after election" didn't include Donetsk or Lugansk either - just "Western Ukraine" and that is now down 17 ?

                Neither the 47 or 17 included the Eastern Ukraine (Donetsk/Lugansk).

                  What exactly did they expect Poroshenko to do then when they elected him ?

                  Defeat Russia and conquer it all the way the Ural mountains

                    Yes, you can access original articles here:
                    http://www.gallup.com/poll/180233/uk...president.aspx
                    http://www.gallup.com/poll/187931/uk...eadership.aspx
                    The same trend was evident from recent polls conducted by other institutions.
                    Also note a curious difference between regions.
                    It should be remember though that Boris Yeltsin manged to run Russia for several years having even lower popularity (I guess something like 3% by the end of his term).

                        You can add the fact the entire population of LNR/DPR is about 2 million people vs about 50 million in the rest of Ukraine. Even if all the people in Donbass voted for Poroshenko right from their houses bombed on his orders, the figures wouldn't have changed much.

                        It feels like some people have their brains so strongly hardwired to see only what fits their agenda, they even try to argue with plain, cold and hard facts

                        Thankfully it's a Gallup poll, recognised in the Ukrainian media as well, otherwise the usual suspects would jump in screaming "Russian propaganda fake".

                          Strange such low numbers don't translate into practical political problems.

                          Such low approval rating of any sitting government here, would result in a fall of government and either a new coalition or new elections.

                          Where's the opposition ? Logically they should be supported by over 50% of the electorate now and push for new elections no ?

                            The Western media created a new sentence in 2008: "Can not fail".
                            It was used to keep failed banks in business.
                            It looks like this has been extended in the realm of corporate liberal real politics.
                            The Junta regime in Kiev is prepped with funds and aid by the US and the EU, at minimum costs, to keep it alive. And well, should I mention the western media support again ? Most importantly, are the assurances of Joe Biden.

                              What oppostion you're talking about ? Communists were banned, the ancient Yanukovich's party members - those who remain - keep a low profile, nationalists who doesn't follow the lines are arrested, opposing oligarchs are forced to silence. Do you really thnik that Poroshenko spent his time at doing nothing ?

                              Btw in Belgium, Charles Michel had an approval rating of around 25% when his government was formed. He is still PM.
