Lonely At The Top

The Greek Prime Minister teeters between resignation and securing a debt deal with his former EU buddies.
"Even if he survives the coming hours or days in office, the prime minister is widely seen as having expended nearly all his political capital. Ever since Greece asked for a bailout from the European Union in April 2010, he has struggled to satisfy seemingly irreconcilable constituencies: the Greek electorate and Greece’s foreign lenders, who have insisted on tough austerity measures in exchange for aid, pushing Greek democracy to the breaking point."

"Politicians ratings will continue to fall aligning with a continued decline in mass social mood. Incumbents beware."
