Chile's Bachelet approval sinks amid political and natural storms

SANTIAGO (Reuters) - Chilean President Michelle Bachelet's approval ratings have plunged to their lowest level ever, a poll showed on Wednesday, after a month of natural disasters and political corruption scandals that have diverted attention from her reform drive.

The number of respondents who approved of Bachelet's performance fell to 31 percent in March, down 8 percentage points from February's survey, according to the GfK Adimark poll. It was the worst result of both her current administration, which began a year ago, and her 2006-10 term in office.
