Carrie Lam Is Now Hong Kong's Least Popular Leader Ever

(Bloomberg) -- Public support for Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam has slumped to the lowest level since she took office, making her the city’s least popular leader ever, according to the latest Hong Kong Public Opinion Program survey. Her average rating plunged to 26.3 out of 100 points in August, down from 31.8 in July. Lam has come under fire amid 12 straight weeks of protests as her government refused to make any concessions since declaring a controversial extradition bill dead.
