Mexican president more unpopular than Trump

Discontent runs so deep over domestic issues here — including a recent 20% hike in gas prices — that many Mexicans express more frustration with President Enrique Peña Nieto than with Mexico-bashing U.S. President-elect Donald Trump.

“It’s a strong competition, but I would dare to say Peña Nieto is more unpopular,” said Miguel Martínez, an insurance agent. “Peña Nieto has more to do directly with what impacts us.”

Despite Trump’s litany of criticisms, Mexicans are increasingly upset with their own government. This month they marched in the streets, blocked highways, looted stores and closed gas stations to protest gasolinazo, the jump in the government-set gasoline price.
