BRASILIA | Tuesday, Jul 21 2015 IST
President Dilma Rousseff's popularity continues to tumble due to a widening corruption scandal and economic recession, and an increasing number of Brazilians want to see her impeached, according to an opinion poll published today.

The CNT/MDA poll showed that her government's approval rating has fallen to 7.7 per cent compared with 10.8 per cent in a previous survey in March, while 70.9 percent rate her government negatively compared to 64.8 per cent in March.

The number of respondents who favor Rousseff's impeachment over a massive kickback scandal at state-run oil company Petrobras has risen to 62.8 per cent from 59.7 per cent four months ago.

The MDA poll, commissioned by the national transport lobby group CNT, surveyed 2,002 people between July 12 and 16.REUTERS JW GC1955
