But the most striking result is in that of confidence: a year ago, only 9 percent said that absolutely did not have confidence in Calderón to move the country in the right direction. This year, that figure is 40 percent.

More Polling Difficulties for Calderón
Polling released today from Milenio shows growing dissatisfaction with the president, across a range of questions. How has Calderón governed? Thirty percent said he has done a bad job, up ten points from one year ago. Forty percent say the country is worse off now than when he took over, up ten from last year. Sixty-four percent say the country is spinning out of control, a twelve-point hike. Fifty-two percent say that they are not all satisfied with his leadership, fourteen points more than November of 2008. Interestingly, the positive corollaries to these answers also increased in many of these answers, and even when they dropped, it was usually not by much; the most striking declines were from those with lukewarm feelings last year. Most of them would seem to have hardened against Calderón.
