Bolsonaro’s Popularity Crumbles as Covid-19 Crisis Rages


Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s approval rating cratered amid a surging death toll from the coronavirus and confusion over a national vaccination plan.

The mercurial leader, who scoffed at masks and echoed baseless theories about the virus voiced by former U.S. President Donald Trump, saw his personal backing tumble Friday to 26%, from 37% in a previous poll published Jan. 14, according to a survey conducted by IDEIA and published in Brazilian business magazine Exame. His disapproval rating rose to 45% during the same period.

A second poll released Friday by DataFolha found Bolsonaro’s approval rating at 31% against 37% in December, while his disapproval rating rose to 40% from 32% over the same period. ...............(more)

6. He is a monster.

Under his rule Amazon tribes have basically been stripped of land rights and even murdered by thugs sent out by ruthless developers. The dustbin of history can’t claim him fast enough.

2. Who would have thunk it?

7. Like Dr. King pointed out, History tilts toward Justice.

And greater freedom (responsible freedom). People like Trump and the Brazilian idiot, Putin and Orban in Hungary pop up, but in the long arc of history, they prove to be nothing but momentary impediments.
