Johannesburg - A new poll shows that President Jacob Zuma's performance approval has dropped among South Africans in metropolitan areas.
In the latest poll by research company Kantar TNS, only 18% of South Africans living in metros feel that Zuma is doing a good job as president.
"In this latest survey, we see that only 18% of South Africans living in metropolitan areas feel that Zuma is doing a good job as president of the country," Ilse Dinner of Kantar TNS said.
The downward spiral is due to worsening perceptions among black and coloured respondents.
Sixty-eight percent of black respondents disagree that Zuma is doing a good job as president - up from 64% in March this year, and 59% in February 2016.
His popularity has plummeted among coloured respondents, with only 4% believing he was doing a great job.
