Over half the Argentines want president Cristina Fernandez to remain in office and to finish her four year mandate and at the same time reject conspiracy theories which pretend to force the exit of the controversial leader.
A majority 64.8% don't believe Cristina should step down while 26.1% support the idea according to an opinion poll from Raul Aragon & Associates published in Buenos Aires.
A similar percentage, 69.5% believe Cristina Fernandez will remain in office until December 2015, while 29% think she will step down before that date, the end of her second consecutive mandate.
Likewise, 56.7% consider false the intentional destabilization theories which have been launched to force a premature exit of the president, as claimed by government officials.
Another public opinion poll, Opinion Publica Servicios y Mercados, points out that 36% of Argentines believes that the current economic and financial problems are the result of government's lack of capacity and only 17% support the official version that concentrated power groups are responsible for those problems. Another 37% point to a combination of both arguments.
Similarly, 41% of those interviewed said that the strong devaluation of the Argentine peso at the end of January 'was induced by government to recover the competitiveness of the currency', while 36% support the government position that it was market forces which ballooned the value of the US dollar in the local market.
The OPSM poll published by the financial daily El Cronista also showed that a majority of those interviewed are concerned with the current economic and social situation in Argentina, and three out of four believe things in the country are bad or really bad.
Furthermore, 81% said that the Argentine government made the money exchange clamp more flexible because it was overflowed by 'economic factors and had no other way out'.
Following the abrupt devaluation of the Peso last January when it lost 23% of its value to the US dollar, the government of President Cristina Fernandez blamed the big multinationals and opposition media for speculating and promoting the crisis situation in Argentina.
During her last official rally, President Cristina Fernandez said that not only the financial markets and the banks promoted destabilization, but they were also supported by certain media with hegemonic influence that want to see me fly off in the air.
The Raul Aragon & Associates public opinion poll was done between 10 and 12 February in metropolitan Buenos Aires including 1.200 random interviews, while OPSM did its field work on 10/14 February.
Cristina Fernandez reference 'to see me fly off in the air' refer to the exit from the Government House roof landing pad of president Isabel Peron in 1976 and elected president Fernando de la Rúa in 2001.
