Wow, look at these numbers from PewResearch. They show broad and deep dissatisfaction with Dilma Rousseff on, well, just about everything. The conclusion is that the World Cup has been a real loser for her.
Brazilians aren't happy and they aren't thrilled with the World Cup.
Brazilians don't like how Rousseff is handling things:
Her only good news is that Brazilians still see her as preferable to any other candidate:
The presidential election is in October so it's premature to say much beyond the obvious point that the outlook for Rousseff is a lot less rosy than it was, say, one year ago. The World Cup begins in a mere nine days and lasts a month, which means her government will be in the global limelight for a long time. As with the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Twitter and the mainstream media are awash in pictures, snide remarks, and stories about Brazil not being ready. Unlike Vladmir Putin, however, Rousseff actually faces real elections.
