Approval Rating for Brazil's President Hits New Low

A new poll in Brazil says the approval rating for President Dilma Rousseff has plunged to new lows amid economic woes and a huge corruption scandal at Petrobras, the state energy company. The survey released Tuesday by the MDA polling institute says only 8 percent of those surveyed consider Rousseff's government to be "great" or "good." By contrast, 71 percent say the government is a "failure." While An MDA poll four months ago put Rousseff's approval rating at 11 percent, while 65 percent of those surveyed said her government was "bad" or "terrible."
