Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto's ratings plunge
December 2 , 2014
Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto’s ratings have plunged as protests continue to rock the country over the 43 missing students and the government's inept handling of the situation, according to media reports.
News of a multi-million dollar mansion purportedly designed for the president’s family has added to the anger over corruption.
One poll put the president’s approval ratings at 39%, with the disapproval rising to 58%.
Nieto has sought to focus on economic reforms rather than the rampant criminalization affecting the country, but the students’ disappearance has brought back the attention on the internal security situation.
