President Putin tops ratings among Russians – poll
by David Burghardt at 06/03/2014 10:50
Russian President Vladimir Putin for the second year in a row holds his highest ratings among Russians, according to a survey released on Thursday by the All-Russian Center for Public Opinion Research (VTsIOM).
Over the last two years, Russians have expressed their satisfaction with Putin's activities at over 60 percent of those polled, VTsIOM said.
"This is occurring on the backdrop of the increasing political situation in Ukraine and Crimea, as well as the success of holding the Winter Olympics in Sochi," the poll said.
Putin's popularity over the last two years stands at 67.8 percent of the population. The president's highest rating to date (68.8 percent) was in May 2012 right after his inauguration to a third term.
The poll was conducted March 1-2, 2014, among 1,600 respondents in 130 populated areas in 42 regions in Russia with a margin of error at 3.4 percent.
