President’s popularity high despite recent scandals.

Media sources have expressed surprise at the latest opinion polls on the government of President Garcia, showing him to maintain a strong 64% approval rating despite a string of recent scandals among senior government figures.  

Some press figures have suggested that the people recognize that Garcia is not directly responsible for the actions of his ministers, while others warn that further scandals will eventually have a negative impact on public opinion. They suggest that it takes time for people to change their minds, pointing out that the corruption scandals are all recent. 

More cynical journalists have suggested that high levels of nepotism and corruption under Garcia are simply causing very little surprise.
