Title: BORIS YELTSIN'S CHANGING POPULAR SUPPORT
 
Author: Richard Rose, CSPP and Stephen White, U. of Glasgow
 
Description: The presidency is the central office in Russian government, and Boris Yeltsin has played a unique role in creating precedents for the exercise of its authority. This paper examines the emergence of the office and of Yeltsin as a political outsider who seized opportunities to become the first elected Russian President during the last year of the Soviet Union. It then reviews the problems of a political outsider trying to give direction from inside government--and how the Russian public has evaluated his tenure in office. The paper draws upon monthly public opinion surveys of VCIOM since 1991 and a series of New Russia Barometer surveys of the CSPP, the most recent from January, 1996.
