Approval of institutions, ratings of politicians

Assessments of the state of affairs in the country and the assessment of the activities of state institutions have not changed significantly since the beginning of spring. Two-thirds of Russians believe that the country is moving in the right direction, approve of the actions of the government and the heads of regions. The president’s actions are supported by about four-fifths of respondents.

In recent months, the assessment of the current state of affairs in the country has not changed significantly: in August, the share of those who believe that things in the country are going in the right direction was 67%, those who believe that the country is moving on the wrong path — 24%.This ratio, with minor changes, has been maintained since March of this year.
