President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s approval rating has grown—38% of Ukrainians trust the Head of State, 59%—do not. This is shown in the results of a poll held by the sociological group Rating.
Zelenskyy continues to lead the approval rating of the politicians. Yulia Tymoshenko ranks second: 27% of respondents trust her, 71%—do not trust her. 25% trust Petro Poroshenko, 73% do not trust him. 24% trust Yuriy Boyko, 59% do not trust him, 12% do not know him at all.
Poroshenko tops the disapproval rating—44% of respondents would not vote for him under any circumstances. 35% would not vote for Boyko, 34%—for Tymoshenko, 32%—for Zelenskyy, 26%—for Arseniy Yatsenyuk, 22%—for Oleh Liashko, 21%—for Vitali Klitschko. Every sixth to seventh respondent under no circumstances would vote for Yevhen Muraiev and Volodymyr Groysman.
If the presidential elections were held shortly, then 23.1% would vote for Zelenskyy (among those who intend to vote and have made their choice). 13.3% would support Poroshenko, 10.7%—Tymoshenko, 9.2%—Boyko, 8.3%—Dmyrto Razumkov, 7.0%—Muraiev, 6.9%—Ihor Smeshko, 6.1%—Groysman, 3.3%—Liashko. The approval ratings of other candidates are less than 3%.
If a second round of presidential elections were held, Zelenskyy would have defeated all possible opponents. For instance, in a pair Zelenskyy—Poroshenko, the result is 59% against 41% (among those who intend to vote and have made their choice). In a pair Zelenskyy—Tymoshenko—59% versus 41%, in a pair Zelenskyy—Boyko—62% versus 38%.
The Servant of the People tops the approval rating of the parties. 18.0% of those who will vote and have made their choice are ready to support it. 13.9% support European Solidarity, 10.7%—Opposition Platform—For Life, 10.1%—Batkivshchyna. 7.9% support Reasonable Politics, the newly established association of Razumkov. The rating of other political forces is less than 2%.
Almost a quarter of the respondents (23%) rate the country's course as correct, 69%—as wrong, 8% found it difficult to answer. Over the past two months, the number of those who consider the course of the country's development to be wrong have increased (there were 58% at the beginning of September).
