Government satisfaction fell by one point to 78 points in August, with most areas remaining relatively stable.
Some of the biggest areas of decline were in jobs and unemployment (-3), level of salaries and wages (-3), management and management of the economy (-2), possibly due to a gloomier economic outlook for the second half of 2018.

Public transport and racial relations/integration also fell by two points.
