A public opinion survey conducted by the Indonesian Survey Circle (LSI) found that after only three months the public has shown disillusionment toward the way President Joko 'Jokowi' Widodo is running the country.
The Jakarta-based pollster found that in its latest round of surveys, conducted in the third week of January, the approval rating for Jokowi stood at 42.29 percent.
Jokowi's approval rating in August last year was 71.73 percent.
'The majority of the respondents or 53.7 percent said they were dissatisfied with Jokowi's performance. They also regret the fact that Jokowi lost his momentum only after 100 days in office,' LSI researcher Adjie Alfaraby said in a press briefing on Thursday.
In its latest round of surveys, LSI interviewed 1,2000 respondents in 33 provinces.
Last week, the Social and Political Study Center (Puspol) Indonesia released findings from its survey, showing that 51 percent of respondents were losing faith in Jokowi's presidency.
The survey put questions to respondents on six issues: education policy, maritime policy, Jokowi's social protection cards, subsidized-fuel policy, currency policy and the general public's perception of Jokowi's performance.
