Poll: Confidence in Army declines sharply

Mitofsky’s nationwide survey of confidence in institutions showed a decrease in confidence in the most admired institutions in Mexico. Those saying they had a “high” degree of confidence in the Army fell 6.6% to 34.4% from 41% in January 2009. In terms of overall ranking (which also takes into account other responses), the Army fell from first place to third.  Confidence in the IFE slipped 2.6%. According to Mitofsky, this reflects the belief that the IFE has become more politicized. Confidence in the Presidency also decreased. Political parties remain the least respected institutions in Mexico, with only 5.6% having a high degree of confidence in them. (www.consulta.com.mx)
