BRASILIA (Reuters) - The approval rating for Brazilian President Michel Temer's scandal-plagued government has sunk further since new charges were brought against him, and 92 percent of Brazilians do not trust him, a new poll published on Thursday showed.

The survey by pollster Ibope, conducted between Sept. 15-20, said the number of people who consider Temer's government "bad" or "terrible" rose to 77 percent from 70 percent in the previous survey carried out in July.

The proportion of those who rate Temer's government as "great" or "good" slipped to just 3 percent from 5 percent, according to the poll of 2,000 people, which has a margin of error of two percentage points.
