Zuma's declining popularity in metro areas

The president's rating in metro areas continues to drop, with 33% stating that Jacob Zuma is doing a good job as the president of the country, compared to 37% in November 2014. These figures, however, differ by race and area, with 43% of black people saying that the president is doing a good job versus 11% of white people, 11% of coloured people and 18% of Asian people. In 2014, 48% of black people agreed with the statement, a 5% drop in support from this group.
