Russians for Putin, but against the policy. President of Russia’s electoral rating rose to a record 87%. Gennady Zyuganov and Vladimir Zhirinovsky - 4% of the vote

It seems that our fellow credited with the political agenda of the country president - Vladimir Putin’s rating reached historical highs.

Opportunity to participate in the political life of the country treats for yourself at all in recent years, the minimum number of people. Russian interest in political news fell after a surge in March this year.

These data are published in a new study by the Levada Center.

If presidential elections were held next Sunday, next to the name of Vladimir Putin to put a tick 87% of Russian citizens, according to a survey conducted August 22-25. This new historical record, five points higher than the July figure, when the incumbent head of state was ready to vote 82% of Russians.

Second place with a huge margin divided leaders of the Communist Party and the Liberal Democratic Party, Gennady Zyuganov and Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who could count on the 4% of the vote. In third place could expect Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the head of the “Fair Russia” Sergei Mironov, who is under house arrest, opposition leader Alexei Navalny. They promise sociologists to 1% with a statistical error of 3.4%.

But to participate in the political life of the Russians themselves are not ready. To the question “do you want to participate in political life, at least at the level of the city?” only 18% of study participants “Levada Center,” said yes. A year ago, such a possibility is not ruled out for yourself one in five (20%). And the greatest willingness to be politically active among our compatriots in fall 2011, when the desire to strive together in the political field have stated 31% of Russians.

Accordingly, 77% of respondents do not plan to participate in political life, even at the local level. And 5% were undecided.

But for political news Russians watched with keen interest, although its peak, which was in March this year, has already passed.

If at the beginning of the spring 46% of survey participants closely followed the political agenda, but now these - 40%. A year ago, they were 29%. Of greatest interest to the vicissitudes of political life in the country was recorded in December 2011, when half of the respondents admitted that closely follow them.
