Latest MaltaToday survey and trust barometer

The first MaltaToday survey held after the sacking of then Home Affairs Minister Manuel Mallia in December shows opposition leader Simon Busuttil trailing Prime Minister Joseph Muscat by 15 points in the trust barometer, with Busuttil showing a slight decline compared to November.

The survey also shows the Prime Minister registering the lowest approval rating (44%) since April 2013, suggesting that the political earthquake which ultimately led to Mallia’s sacking, may have damaged Muscat without eroding his trust lead over Busuttil.

The survey was conducted among 500 respondents between Wednesday 7 and Tuesday, 13 January.
