Unpopular Presidencies

My wild guess is that, according to Latinobarómetro (sponsored by The Economist), appreciation for democracy is falling in Latin America.
Other part of the equation is perception about the handling of the pandemic.

And López Obrador’s popularity beats me. I know it is personal (he’s still seen as an “everyman”, close to the people) and not appreciation for his Government, but still.
I think he has been a terrible President.

I keep expecting Bukele's bubble to burst, but nada. Always interested to know the events behind the big swings (Columbia, Ecuador, Peru). Seems more volatile than Australia, but I guess we don't have a president.

Bukele's crackdown on the gangs seems to have been politically profitable. It will socially backfire, IMHO.

Perú is a basket case, see the historical evolution.
If you want to be the President of Peru, you are also ready to make some years in jail.
