President Rousseff losing approval


SAO PAULO — Public approval of Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff’s government has suffered a steep drop in the weeks since massive protests broke out across this country, according to Brazil’s first nationwide poll released since the unrest began.

The Datafolha survey found 30 percent of respondent­s rated Rousseff’s government as “great/ good,” a sharp fall from the 57 percent who gave it that rating three weeks ago before the demonstrat­ions began.
