Survey Finds Broad Discontent In World Cup Host Brazil

A survey released on Tuesday paints a grim picture of Brazil as it gears up to host the World Cup, showing widespread frustration with the economy and with President Dilma Rousseff. The level of general dissatisfaction in Brazil is 72 percent according to the poll by the Washington-based Pew Research Center. That is up from 55 percent a year earlier in a Pew survey that was taken just before the largest street protests in two decades broke out. Six in 10 respondents said hosting the World Cup, which starts next week, is bad for Brazil, taking the view that the billions of dollars poured into the soccer tournament would be better spent on services such as healthcare, schools and public transportation.
