An 'honesty' ranking by Argentine pollster, Giacobbe & Associates, based on 500 names, both alive and deceased, shows the country's public opinion poor belief in the political system, with president Cristina Fernández ranked 38, fourteen positions down from a similar poll last year and behind her Uruguayan peer Jose Mujica ranked 11.

    I like the Pope despite previous concerns relating to his nationality. I also have a good deal of respect for President Mujica. An honest and very competent socialist leader. Not many of those in this sad World.

    Like Chris, I am an atheist, but I like this man. Who would have believed it? An Argentine!

    I respect his right to believe, all ask is respects mine to disbelieve.

    I'm baffled that CFK is ranked as high as 38th...

    I'm baffled by why I was deleted, or did a certain person complain?

    Britons consider Mujica far “more honest” than Cristina Fernandez, as well.

    38th for a politician amongst a list of 500 people from various occupations doesn't actually strike me as all that bad. Admittedly it's a drop from her last poll but presumably the voters were blind to the economic forecasts a year ago. Given that she has most likely forced Argentina's economy past the point of no return for default, downgrade and hyperinflation I think 38th out of 500 is remarkable and perhaps a useful insight into how the country repeatedly gets itself into these messes.
