Interesting straw poll on the big-selling Akhmetov-owned, pro-government "Segodnya" newspaper's website.
Online readers were asked: "February 25th was the first anniversary of president Viktor Yanukovych's inauguration. How would you assess his first year's work [out of a maximum 5 points] ?"
5 - excellent - 5%
4 - generally working well, but with some shortcomings - 15%
3 - mediocre - pluses and minuses in equal measure - 15%
2 - poor - few successes - 12%
1 - everything absolutely terrible - 54%
[Total votes cast, at time of writing: 2203]
Trouble is, the opposition would probably score no better right now...
On-line readers are by no means representative of the nation as a whole, but they will be younger, smarter, brighter, more dynamic and forward-looking...
p.s. some of the comments at the bottom of the 'Segodnya' article are quite amusing too..
e.g - Wrap the chandelier around his neck...and throw him in swamp..."
and "It's never been worse than now. In Egypt the average wage is $200 - the nation starts a revolution. Here it's $100 and 20% still vote for them...nonsense.."
