Brazil's Rousseff Approval Rating Slumps on Economy, Poll Shows

A new poll says Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff's (roo seffs) approval rating sank in March, hitting the lowest readings for a president since 1992, as a tumbling economy and fallout from a corruption scandal dented her popularity. According to a poll carried out between Monday and Tuesday, the number of Brazilians who consider Rousseff's administration "bad" or "very bad" touched 62 percent this week. The number who rated Rousseff's government as "good" tumbled to 13 percent.
