Education and Employment Minister Evarist Bartolo emerges as the second most popular minister among 18 to 34-year-olds where he gets an approval rating of 61%, just three points below family and social solidarity minister Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca.

This emerges from a MaltaToday survey held among 400 respondents last week.

The survey shows that while Bartolo appeals to younger respondents, Energy Minister Konrad Mizzi is considerably more popular among over-55s. Bartolo is also surpassed by Tourism Minister Karmenu Vella and Transport Minister Joe Mizzi among this older cohort of voters.

Both  Konrad Mizzi and Bartolo are slightly more popular among female respondents, while Vella is slightly more popular among males.

Karmenu Vella is equally popular among all age groups, and among males, Vella emerges as the second most popular ,inister after Coleiro Preca and just above Evarist Bartolo and Konrad Mizzi.

Coleiro Preca gets the best approval rating among respondents of all age groups and both sexes while Gozo Minister Anton Refalo hits rock-bottom among all age groups and both sexes.

Coleiro Preca is slightly more popular among 35 to 54-year-olds where she gets a positive rating from nearly two thirds of respondents and among males.

Transport Minister Joe Mizzi is considerably more popular among over-55s where he emerges as the third most popular minister after Coleiro Preca and Konrad Mizzi.  But while he gets a 58% approval rating among over 55-year-olds, his approval rating falls to just 43% among 35 to 54-year-olds.

Finance Minister Edward Scicluna and Home Affairs Minister Manwel Mallia are markedly more appreciated among over 35-year-olds. While only 36% of the younger age group deem their performance as minister positive, both got a 49% approval rating among over 55 year olds. 

On the other hand, deputy prime minister Louis Grech gets a higher approval rating among younger respondents and females. Similarly, civil liberties minister Helena Dalli gets a better rating among younger respondents and females.

The sharpest difference between males and females is found in the assessment of the performance of Health Minister Godfrey Farrugia. While only 38% of males deem Farrugia's performance a positive one, his rating rises to 46% among females. Environment Minister Leo Brincat also gets a more positive rating among females.

On the other hand, Foreign Minister George Vella is considerably more popular among males and by older respondents. 

While Vella gets a 48% rating among males, his rating falls to 41% among females.

Konrad Mizzi, Evarist Bartolo, Manwel Mallia, Helena Dalli, Joe Mizzi, Louis Grech, Godfrey Farrugia and Leo Brincat get a better approval rating among females than among males.

Marie Louise Coleiro Preca, Karmenu Vella, Edward Scicluna, George Vella, Chris Cardona and Anton Refalo are deemed to perform better by males.
