Tidbits

Interesting tidbits from the last Catholic University poll (Portugal, registered voters, N=1366, face to face, 49% response rate):

– 67% evaluate the government’s performance as “bad” or “very bad.”And yet, 58% believe that no opposition party could do better.
– Passos Coelho and Paulo Portas, the leaders of the coalition parties, have the worst evaluations of all party leaders.
Miguel Relvas is judged the worst member of cabinet, by far. Vítor Gaspar, the Finance Minister, the best (or least bad, so to speak.).
Cavaco Silva, the President, has the worst evaluation ever, for himself and for any President before him.
– 72% support staying in the Eurozone. 20% support return to Escudo.
– 59% expect need for further EU/IMF support.
– 58% think it unlikely Portugal descends into a Greek scenario.
