Growing disapproval of government institutions
Recent polling by La Prensa Grafica shows growing disillusionment with public institutions over the past three years. As the poll results show, from 2005 to 2007 the number of people saying they approve of the job of various governmental institutions has declined and the number of people who say they disapprove has increased. Highest approval ratings go to schools and hospitals; the lowest approval ratings go the the National Assembly and the courts. (See the results in graphic form at this link). For some reason, LPG did not include the approval rating for president Saca's office in these poll results, but other polls show that his approval rating has also declined over that time frame.
