Survey shows Governor Mauricio Vila has approval of majority of voters

The company Massive Caller published the results of its latest survey on the performance of Mexican governors, and Mauricio Vila from Yucatan, came up first in terms of approval by its own people.

The company owned by Carlos Campos Riojas, located in San Pedro Garza García, (Monterrey) Nuevo León, released its latest telephone survey, conducted on April 15 to a “universe” of one thousand people, randomly selected with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percent

The survey was aimed at determining five main issues:

  1. Approval of government management
  2. Approval rating of governors
  3. Security
  4. Main problem in the state
  5. Index of confidence in state governors

In terms of approval, the Yucatecan governor came up with 60.2 percent approval, above  Quirino Ordaz from Sinaloa with 53.9 in second place; and Claudia Pavlovich from Sonora, with 53.7 percent in third.

As in the previous survey Massive Caller, the governor of Yucatan came up first . In fact, he has remained in the first position since taking office at the end of last year.

Meanwhile, only 18.2 percent of the respondents said that insecurity is the main problem in the state, which places Yucatan as the safest in the opinion of its inhabitants. While in Quintana Roo, 68.4 percent responded that insecurity is the main problem in their state.

Only 4.8 percent of the people surveyed believe is not doing a good job as governor, which placed the Yucatecan on top of the list again. While the worst, according to this survey, is Nuevo León’s, Jaime Rodríguez “El Bronco”.

The Yucatecans believe that the main problem of their State is unemployment and poverty, as it was said by 39.3 percent of the respondents, a figure only surpassed by 43.3 percent expressed by the people of Oaxaca, which came up first in terms of poverty and unemployment.

According to the polling house, the survey was conducted by means of the “robot” technique, which is basically a recording sent to people’s phone homes, that is answered by the interviewee. The calls were made randomly, in order to make the sample representative of the “universe”. The target population was men and women over 18, with voting capabilities.

It should be noted that, according to the poll, the “main problem of all Mexican states at the national level” is insecurity-delinquency, with 46.1 percent.
