Chile poll: Bachelet approval rebounds from record low

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) -- Chile's most influential pollster says the approval rating of Chilean President Michelle Bachelet is rebounding after plunging to its worst level since she took office in March 2014.

The latest survey by pollster CEP was released Wednesday. It says Bachelet's overall approval rose 2 percentage points to 24 percent in November from the previous survey in August.

Recent corruption scandals have eroded the trust that Chileans have in politicians and the business elite. Bachelet's popularity has been dented by an influence-peddling scandal involving her family.

Her government also has struggled to fulfill ambitious reforms amid slowing economic growth and record-low prices and waning global demand for copper, Chile's top export.

The poll surveyed 1,449 people between Nov. 4 and Dec. 6. It has an error margin of 3 percentage points.
