Mexico's Presidency/Handout via REUTERSThe face-to-face survey of 1,000 Mexicans between Nov. 12-18 by polling firm Buendia & Laredo showed Lopez Obrador had the support of 64%, bolstered by his social spending programs.
Lopez Obrador is gearing up for mid-term elections due on June 6, 2021, which will determine whether he can retain control of the lower house of Congress.
Easily the most popular of the president’s policies cited by respondents were welfare spending schemes which target the elderly, students and poorer rural areas, the survey showed.
While Mexicans still support his handling of the pandemic, they are becoming more skeptical about it, the poll showed.
