Satisfaction with the government's operations has risen to a record high in the midst of the corona pandemic, says a survey commissioned by Helsingin Sanomat. 71 per cent of the respondents thought that the government of Prime Minister SannaMarin (sd) had succeeded in its task very or fairly well.
KantarTNS, which conducted the survey, has been surveying the opinions of Finns about the activities of the current government since autumn 2011.
According to the magazine, Jyrki Katainen's (Kok) Board of Directors received the second best grades in a period of about ten years in May 2012. At that time, 38 per cent considered the Board's operations to be successful.
The activities of the Marin government are also considered successful by some supporters of the opposition parties. Two out of three Coalition supporters say the government has succeeded at least fairly well. On the other hand, about a third of the supporters of basic Finns considered the government's work a failure.
The survey also examined people's feelings about the performance of some individual ministers.
Prime Minister Marin received the most favorable reviews. Eighty percent of respondents rate his or her success in his or her job as very or fairly well. As expected, KatriKulmuni downtown received the weakest ratings compared to the time. He resigned as Minister of Finance in early June. A quarter of the respondents considered Kulmun's work a success.
At the end of June, 1,005 people responded to the survey. The margin of error is about 3.1 percentage points in its direction.
