The results of the second opinion-tracker from the independent Egyptian Center for Public Opinion Research, Baseera, reveal stable approval for the president after the first 80 days.

79 per cent of respondents revealed their approval for the president, while 13 per cent stated they did not approve of his performance. By comparison to the 60-day approval rate, there is no significant change in the overall approval, yet improvement on four of the five areas of the first 100-days programme is noted: namely security (up to 75 per cent from 58 per cent), traffic (up to 60 per cent from 45 per cent), rubbish collection (up to 60 per cent from 51 per cent), and bread (up to 38 per cent from 34 per cent). Fuel conditions seem to have worsened since the last survey, going down to 35 per cent from 62 percent during last survey.

The improvement, however, is not felt equally everywhere, as it turned out that the approval on security is lesser among women and youth, while the improvement on traffic and fuel is much less in Lower Egypt, while the garbage condition is felt worse in the urban areas.

Voting prospects if elections repeated tomorrow

Regarding voting prospects, Morsi seemed to have gained five per cent points since the last poll, with 65 per cent of the sample indicating they would vote for Morsi should the elections be repeated tomorrow. Undecided voters are still high at 20 per cent, while decided voters against Morsi were 15 percent. Deeper analysis of these results reveal that among respondents who claimed they originally voted for Morsi, the majority didn't change opinion (83 per cent would vote for him again), while among those who claimed they voted for his opponent, Ahmed Shafiq, 33 per cent claimed they would vote for Morsi if elections were repeated. Among respondents who didn't participate in the elections, 55 per cent stated they would vote for Morsi, which is lower than last poll, at 60 per cent.

This set of results were collected on a sample of 1,656 individuals above 18, on 17 September 2012, through phone calls, the socio-economic level was determined through goods ownership.

I doubt it
As much as I would like to believe these polls, I remember the polls during the elections and how Morsi was trailing. For the longest time Amr Moussa was going to be President and we see how that turned out. I don't think the polls are accurate, and they are actually pretty detrimental in allowing people to make decisions and think for themeselves. So I think until we have worked on the process of taking polls in Egypt, we should stop. I highly doubt with all the problems Egypt has and things seem to be getting worse that there could be an approval rating like that. And even if this was accurate, that would be sad.

Allegations of corruption filed against President Morsy
I am curious to know why other publications are carrying a story about a report filed against President Morsy, alleging corruption concerning election funding and Ahram on line mentions nothing about this story. These are very, very serious allegations against the President and he must answer them.. and of course a free press would be happy to report on such a newsworthy story. The fact that Ahram on line does noty report this story would seem to indicate that negative stories against the President and the government are being suppressed which is most certainly not in keeping with a Democratic system...Please allay my suspicions and report the story

Really?
I've lived and worked in and around Cairo for the past 25 years. In my opinion the traffic is worse than it ever was and there is mountains of trash on the streets. 80% really?

Was this after his television appearance in NY?
One would have to wonder if the appearance on international TV of Morsi adjusting his testicles boosted his popularity! Certainly there is nothing else.

Couldn't agree with you more.This is the reason Egypt does not progress. Everyone is in denial.
