The decline in ratings of «United Russia» is connected with society’s demands for change and renewal, the political indicators of the country’s leadership are affected by changes in the social sphere and the lack of a breakthrough growth, according to political analysts interviewed by RIA Novosti.

Thus, according to experts, in the near future the government will be able to regain lost ground: one option could be converting the «United Russia», as well as shifting the emphasis from external to internal agenda.

All-Russia centre of studying of public opinion (VTSIOM) last week introduced fresh trust rating of politicians, evaluation of institutions, relationship to the parties. According to the report on the website of VTSIOM, «the approval rate of the President is stable, is formed within the boundaries of the corridor and is 63.2%», «evaluation of job approval of the Prime Minister and Cabinet has adjusted to 34.2% and 41.2%, respectively, and are also within the boundaries of the formed corridor values». In the ranking of confidence in politicians top line is Vladimir Putin (36.8 per cent). The electoral rating of the party «United Russia» amounted to 34.5% — the average value of according from 24 to 30 September, follows from the materials of VTSIOM.

In July of this year, according to VTSIOM, the President of Russia was approved by 63.4% of respondents, Prime Minister of 31.2%, the government — 38% of survey participants. The electoral rating of the party «United Russia», according to VTSIOM, in July amounted to 38.8%.

According to published on Monday the survey «Levada-center», Russian President topped the list of persons to whom the Russians trusted the most. Asked to name «5-6 politicians, public figures whom you trust the most», Putin in September called 39% (in June 2018, the figure was 48%, in November of 2017 — 59%). Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev took fifth place with 10% (in June on confidence in the Prime Minister was reported by 9% of respondents in November last year — 11%).

The situation in the economy and demand for change

Member of the expert Council of the Institute of socio-economic and political studies Alexei Zudin, speaking about the possible reasons of the downgrade, said that the Russian economy has not yet been perfected, and incomes are not significantly increased, and all this influenced the mood of the Russians.

The second reason Zudin considers changes in the social sphere.

In this I agree with him and the head «Political expert group» Konstantin Kalachev. He also believes that after the presidential elections in March 2018, the company expects breakthroughs in the economy.

A sociological survey in this case, according to Kalachev, shows «society’s demands for change and update request».

Building positions and the internal agenda

Analysts agree that the fall of the «United Russia» is not a fatal nature when they say: «all is lost, or is this the beginning of the end», so expect in the coming months building up lost ground. For this, according to experts, you will need to do some steps, in particular, to begin the transformation of «United Russia» the party is more close to the society and its interests.

Zudin expressed confidence that United Russia and President Vladimir Putin rating fluctuations will be able to play exactly the same as it has happened in the past.

As stated earlier, the press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov, the Kremlin watching to see how to change the ratings of the Russian President in connection with the change in the pension system, but it’s never been an obstacle to this work for the benefit of people.

«United Russia», I think, too will be able to reverse the trend to positive. We know that «United Russia» on the problems of responsive action. She had a very difficult problem in 2011, we remember, it was adequate, strong reaction in the form of party reform… the kind of fundamental reform I, at least, do not assume. But, quite possibly, other steps would be taken for the further approach of the party to the society», — said Zudin.

He recalled that some time ago put forward the concept of the transformation of «United Russia» in a network game. «Whatever it meant, the network concept means the maximum rapprochement with society. «United Russia» is the competent organization, which, I think, able to cope with the current situation,» — said the expert.

Kalachev believes that «the answer to the question of how to respond to these challenges will be found.»
