MOSCOW, March 26. /ITAR-TASS/. The level of Russian electoral support to incumbent Russian President Vladimir Putin has reached the figures of the country’s presidential elections in 2004 for the first time, the presidential rating peak is caused by his responsible actions in view of current crisis in Ukraine, political experts told Itar-Tass in comments on the Public Opinion Fund (FOM) survey results made public on Wednesday.

The FOM sociological survey conducted on March 23 showed that 64% of Russians would vote for Putin, if presidential elections were held next Sunday. Sociologists polled three thousand respondents in 64 Russian constituent entities.

If projecting the FOM survey results onto “a real electoral process”, Putin “would gain 84-85% of votes” next Sunday and would win an landslide victory in the first round of elections, the deputy dean of the faculty of applied political studies of the Higher School of Economics and a member of the Russian Presidential Council on Civil Society and Human Rights, Leonid Polyakov, believes.

“Therefore, Putin is about to reach the same figures that he had at presidential elections running for his second term of presidency in 2004. So, Putin is getting back to his historical maximum, the peak of his electoral support ten years later,” Polyakov said.

In his view, high backing to the president was explained by the fact that Russian society was obviously consolidating, as people understood that Putin was a strong leader in view of the presidential address over Crimea delivered in the previous week.

“As Ukrainian current situation is far from being settled, I believe that Putin has reached a stable level in his electoral rating that will be keeping at this level for a few months,” Polyakov noted.

“Russian citizens appreciated the presidential address and his personal responsibility for current situation in Crimea,” the president of the Centre of Strategic Communications, Dmitry Abzalov, said.

In his view, if presidential elections were held next Sunday Putin would gain 85-87% of votes.

“Current presidential electoral rating (64%) is getting closely to the 2004 level, when presidential elections were held and his electoral rating stood at 65%. This is a very good indicator, as politicians usually cannot regain such high figures,” Abzalov noted.

He also believed that the level of electoral support to Putin would be keeping at this level all this spring.

Russia's President Putin's third term approval rating has reached his highest point since 2004, when he was re-elected to a second term wth 71% of the vote. At the time his approval rating stood at 65%. This time, 64% of Russians approve of him, according to a just-released poll. He could win an election held today outright with 85-87% of the vote. This is a threshold few politicians can sustain for long.

That's nothing, here Obama gets 100% of the felon vote, and 100% of the illegal alien vote, ....Obama’s 87% would come from the Neo-Con Fascista Homophile vote.

Putin is a thug and his serfs love him for it.
Obama is a flaming Marxist pansy and Americans detest him for it.
