Poll: Putin’s public trust rating drops 10 pct in a year

Vladimir Putin’s trust rating among ordinary Russians has fallen by 10 percent in the past year even though the numbers who want to see him re-elected as president have grown, two opinion polls showed on Monday. According to one poll, by the independent Levada Center, 73 percent of voters said they trusted Putin, down from 83 percent in the same polling series a year before, while 19 percent said they did not trust him, up from 14 percent. The pollster did not offer an explanation for the apparent slip in Putin’s trust rating, which remains stratospheric by Western standards.
