According to the latest survey of Tecné-Dire, who photographed the trend of trust in the Prime Minister Mario Draghi and in his government since he took office, the executive lost 5 points at the turn of mid-April, when the government decided to reopen some activities: the government went from a confidence of 51.2% to 46.7 %. Draghi himself, always in the first two months of government since February, the satisfaction with him dropped from 61 to 52.1% (-9 points). And from February 13, the day of oath at the Quirinale, the thud is 12 points: the approval of Italians in the government has gone from 58.4% to 46.7% today.
At the beginning of April, the government had lost another 5 percentage points (52.1%) until it fell below the 50% threshold at the end of the month, notes the Everyday occurrence. The decisions on the amnesty of tax bills, the decree at the end of March that closed Italy for the entire month of April, the controversies about a vaccination campaign that was struggling to take off and the subsequent decree (after Easter) that provided reopening from 26 onwards. But not for indoor restaurants, swimming pools or gyms and with the curfew at 10pm.
The honeymoon, writes Il Fatto, lasted a month or so. The collapse of 12 points in the first two months of government, however, is almost a record: only the one led by Mario Monti it had experienced a larger crash in the first 60 days of the past six governments. According to data from Demos the technical executive called to “save” Italy in 2011 after Berlusconi’s years was appreciated by 8 out of 10 Italians on the day of his inauguration (78%), an anomalous figure given that only ten days later the figure was already dropped to 65%, and after two months confidence had dropped by 20 points reaching 58%.
