Since November, when the six-year administration of Governor Marina del Pilar Avila began, the approval of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has been in a tailspin.

A survey carried out by Consulta Mitofsky, shows the president has lost 20 percentage points.

In November, the president was approved by 79.2 percent of Baja Californians. For June, approval was 59.5 percent.

In contrast, the governor has lost only about three points, going from 61.3 percent approval to 58.7 percent.

López Obrador has the same approval level in the states of Sinaloa and Durango.

The states where López Obrador is best rated are Nayarit, with 78.3 percent, Tabasco, with 77.4 percent, and Quintana Roo, with 76.9 percent.

On the contrary, the president records his worst evaluation in Guanajuato, with 41.6 percent; Michoacán, with 40.9 percent and Nuevo León, with 40.7 percent.

According to the company, owned by pollster Roy Campos, Gov. Avila is the fourth best approv1ed in the country, after Miguel Riquelme, from Coahuila; Mauricio Vila, of Yucatan and Mauricio Kuri, of Queretaro.

Separately, Campaigns and Elections Mexico released the results of its Ranking of Governors, where Avila Olmeda shows ups and downs.

According to the ranking, the Baja California governor is fifth nationwide for the happiest state, third in combating poverty, fourth in ability, sixth in popularity, ninth in handling Covid-19, and seventh in performance.

Ávila Olmeda is eleventh in honesty with 40 percent approval, eighth in safety with 38 percent, fourteenth in employment with 28 percent, sixteenth in finances with 27 percent, twenty-fourth in approval of the president with 59 percent, and twenty-second in combat corruption with 30 percent.

Similar trends were shown by the governor and the president in a survey of Mexico Elige.

Contrary to Consulta Mitofsky, data from Mexico Elige indicates that the president has gained 8.9 percentage points, which is the second highest in the country after Sinaloa.

At the national level, the governor is placed fourteenth among the best evaluated leaders.

Ávila Olmeda records an approval of 55.7 percent, which represents six points compared to the previous evaluation, the survey says.

In the last edition of Mexico Elige, the governor occupied the seventeenth place.
