Support for Erdogan changes after Syria Operation - poll

Support for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan surged last month, when Ankara launched a military incursion in northeastern Syria to clear the Kurdish YPG militia from near its border, a survey by Metropoll showed.

Erdogan's approval rating rose by 3.7% in October to 48%, according to the survey, its highest level since shortly after the presidential elections in June 2018, which were held before the last year's currency crisis took hold.

His disapproval rate fell 9.3% to 33.7%, its lowest level since a failed coup in July 2016, Reuters reported.

Some 18% of the participants did not respond to the survey question or said they had no idea.
