Brazil’s Trump: Bolsonaro’s popularity jumps as Brazil economy improves, crime drops


The Trump of the tropics is rolling. Jair Bolsonaro is repairing the damage that corrupt socialist politicians committed against beautiful Brazil! Brazil is a cautionary tale as to how a thriving country can be run into the ground when Leftist politicians such as Bernie Sanders take power. Remember that this November when you cast your vote.

The left hate him, like Trump. Here’s a Guardian headline.

Bolsonaro’s popularity jumps as Brazil economy improves, crime drops

By Reuters, January 22, 2020:

The CNT/MDA poll showed Brazilians are more worried about the economy, jobs and public security than controversies that surround Bolsonaro, who had to fire his culture secretary last week for copying Nazi propaganda chief Goebbels in a speech.

Reversing a steady decline in popularity in his first year in office, the number of Brazilians who viewed his government as great or good climbed to 34.5% from 29.4% in August, the survey showed, while 31% now see the government as bad or terrible, down from 39.5% previously.

Bolsonaro’s personal approval rating jumped to 47.8% from 41% in August, while those who disapprove of the way he is governing Brazil dropped to 47% from 53.7% in August.

The areas in which his government is considered to have performed well include fighting corruption, boosting the economy and public security, while it is seen as falling short on health, education and the environment, according to the survey.

Though the next presidential election is not until 2022, if the vote was held today, Bolsonaro would have a solid lead over former president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, the poll found, backed by 29.1% of those surveyed versus 17.0% for the once-popular leftist leader.
