Disappointment in Russian President Grows from Year to Year

The number of Russians who are disappointed in Russian President has more than doubled since 2000, the first year of his ruling, the latest in a series of nationwide polls reveals.

      Twenty-two percent of respondents currently confess their disappointment in the country’s long-standing leader Vladimir Putin, compared to 10 percent in 2001, a year after he came to power, when the first President-dedicated poll was made by the independent Levada Center pollster.

      The number of Putin’s unconditional supporters shrank from 19 to 14 percent over the same period, according to the study, published on Friday.

      Another 16 percent said in July they support Putin as long as he is ready to implement democratic reforms. In 2001, that figure was 28 percent.

      Fifteen percent explicitly said they do not support Putin, up 5 percent from 2001. The “anyone but Putin” option was ticked by 5 percent of respondents – compared to 1 percent in 2001 and 0 percent in 2007.

      Meanwhile, the number of people who support Putin because they do not see any alternatives remained virtually unchanged: 17 percent in 2001 and 18 percent in 2013.

      The July poll covered 1,600 respondents from different social circles and Russian regions and had a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points.
