Mexicans Blame President Enrique Peña Nieto for Lasting Cartel Violence, Human Rights Abuses

Raging cartel violence, widespread corruption, human rights abuses and a tanking economy have made Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto one of the most vilified figures in that nation’s recent history.

A recent poll found Pena Nieto’s approval rating at its lowest ever with 80 percent holding a negative view of the president, Mexico’s Animal Politico reported.
