Perceptions on Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan ahead of the 2023 election

My name is Karolina. I am a second-year New Media Language student at the Kaunas University of Technology.

I am conducting a research study about the Perceptions of Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan before the upcoming  2023 election. This survey aims to find out the current opinions about the president and his political actions.

Every response in this survey is recorded anonymously and does not collect any personal information.

Thank you for your time and contribution.

How has Erdogan's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic affected his popularity among Turkish citizens?
The pandemic had a significant economic impact on Turkey, as it did in many other countries. Economic challenges, including job losses and reduced income, affected the livelihoods of many Turkish citizens. Erdogan's popularity could be influenced by how people perceive his government's management of the economic consequences of the pandemic.
It didn’t affect that much. He didn’t help people in financial way.
Erdogan's handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has been a mixed bag, and his approach has been criticized by some in Turkey. At the beginning of the pandemic, Erdogan was criticized for not taking the threat of the virus seriously enough and for downplaying the severity of the outbreak. This led to a delay in implementing strict measures to control the spread of the virus, which allowed it to spread more rapidly.
At the start of the pandemic, Erdogan's government acted relatively quickly to implement strict measures aimed at controlling the spread of the virus, such as implementing a partial lockdown, closing schools, and canceling large gatherings. However, as the pandemic wore on, there were accusations that the government was not doing enough to support struggling businesses and workers, leading to protests in some parts of the country.

I cannot say ******** There is no question added for me to give you feedback on your questionnaire and you did not submit the responses on Moodle! In term sof the questionnaire, there are some issues. Firstly, the age range has overlapping values. If a person is 22, should they choose 18-22 or 22-25? It looks like you copied my example from the board of what not to do... :) Later, in the question about gender, you have some grammar issues (e.g. a person cannot be plural 'women', a singular 'woman' should be used instead). Other questions are based on trusting that the person actually knows about the recent political events and situations in Turkey.
No idea
Fortunately, Turkey had its first pandemic case lately. Unfortunately, they didn’t controlled very well. He always said that our health system one of the best in the world. However, In pandemic term, we saw that it is not. I got Covid 3 times. I had been studying in Latvia. Latvia was so safe in pandemic cases compared to Turkey.
Reaction were late but still managed to cripple business
I'm not very familiar with this part.
In the early stages of the pandemic, Erdogan's government was criticized for downplaying the severity of the outbreak and for being slow to implement measures to contain the spread of the virus. However, as the situation worsened, Erdogan's government began to take more decisive action, including implementing lockdowns and other restrictions on movement and business activity.
He has been using it for the bad consequences for example on economy or inflation etc.
It didn't effect it much
Concerns have been expressed concerning the government's openness and accountability in dealing with the outbreak. Some opponents have accused Erdogan's administration of suppressing or distorting data on the number of COVID-19 cases and fatalities in the country Despite these reservations, Erdogan's popularity has remained constant. According to an August 2021 study performed by Istanbul Economics Research, Erdogan's approval rating was at 42%, which was higher than some prior surveys had shown. Which is nonsense
I don't know
Erdogan's handling of the COVID-19 outbreak has impacted his reputation among Turkish citizens significantly. During the early phases of the epidemic, Erdogan's administration imposed rigorous measures to control the virus's spread, like as lockdowns and travel restrictions. These efforts initially worked to restrict the spread of the virus, and Erdogan's popularity ratings improved as a result. However, as the epidemic has progressed, Erdogan's popularity has suffered. His government has been accused by critics of mishandling the vaccine rollout, which has been delayed and inconsistent, as well as failing to offer appropriate support to companies and workers affected by pandemic-related restrictions. Meanwhile, Turkey has experienced an increase in COVID-19 cases in recent months, leading to further limitations and citizen dissatisfaction.
