Alberto Fernández reached the end of his 100-day honeymoon period amid a pandemic. Despite the challenges, the Argentine president's approval rate remains high. Get the numbers.

It’s been six months since President Alberto Fernández took the reins in Argentina, and what a start to a presidency it’s been. The head of state, a Peronist who unseated incumbent Mauricio Macri, saw his 100-day honeymoon end just as the COVID-19 pandemic began, bringing health and economic punches: nearly 17,000 confirmed coronavirus cases as of May 31, a debt-restructuring task, and a projected 7–point economic contraction in 2020.

Despite these formidable challenges, Fernández maintains strong approval, hitting as much as 78 percent in the most recent polls charted by AS/COA Online below.
