NDI Poll: 64% of Georgians Assess Govt' Performance as Poor

Poll results released today by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and CRRC-Georgia show that 64% of Georgians evaluate the current government’s performance as “bad.” The poll also shows increasing negative assessments of the prime minister, president, courts, and parliament. One of the main public institutions, the Georgian Church, still maintains the most favorable evaluations, while Mayor of Tbilisi Kakha Kaladze continues to have a net positive assessment. 

When asked how they would evaluate the performance of the current government, 64% of respondents said that it was poor, 30% answered "good", while 5% did not have an answer to the question.

The results reflect data collected from November 19- December 13, 2019, through face-to-face interviews with a nationwide representative sample of Georgia’s adult population, excluding occupied territories, that included 2,180 completed interviews.

NDI’s survey work is funded by UK Aid. The poll was carried out by CRRC Georgia.

NDI is an independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization working to support and strengthen democratic institutions worldwide through citizen participation, openness and accountability in government.
