I am not entirely sure why, but there was a sizeable drop in response rates for this poll at just 23 (compared to 26 and 31 in the two previous ones), despite a recent rise in population. I assume this is a once-off, but worth noting that the margin of error is slightly higher than previous polls.
As for the data itself, the Secretary's approval rating has remained almost exactly unchanged despite the drama concerning Discord administration that occurred since the previous Unity Statistics poll. As for the Cabinet at-large, its approval rating has actually surged, well past that of the Secretary leading it and also beyond the margin of error.
Perhaps the most interesting information, however, comes from the one-off question on satisfaction with the Secretary's landmark programme, the Civil Service Initiative. Polling history shows Assemblians, particularly newer members, tend to take a very favourable view of government - generally defaulting to approval instead of neutrality - so the net approval of +26.1% (exactly half that of the Secretary and one-third of the Cabinet) seems to demonstrate some division over whether it has been successful. However, there remains a large portion (almost 40%) who are unsure or neutral on the matter.
