Poll Shows Approval Dropping for Egypt's Morsi

Ad Feedback

JERUSALEM, Israel -- A new poll released Tuesday shows Egypt's Islamist President Mohammed Morsi's approval rating is at its lowest point since taking office 10 months ago, the Jerusalem Post reported on Wednesday.

The survey, carried out by the Egyptian Center for Public Opinion Research at the end of March, shows an almost evenly divided public among those who approve and disapprove of the president.

Thirty-seven percent said they would vote for Morsi again, while two-thirds weren't sure who they'd support for president at this time.

Forty-seven percent of those polled said Morsi's doing a good job, while 45 percent said he's not and 8 percent weren't sure.

Former Arab League chief, Mohamed ElBaradei, who stepped down to run for president and now heads the opposition coalition's National Salvation Front, would not be a viable candidate with a puny 1 percent approval, according to the poll.
