Sao Paulo Brazil's president is seeing record approval ratings with just over two weeks left before he leaves office.

The Ibope polling institute says Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's personal approval ratings are now at 87 percent. That's up from 83 percent at the same time last year.

The poll released Thursday also indicates Silva's government has approval ratings of 80 percent - up from 72 percent a year ago.

The poll interviewed 2,002 people in 140 counties across Brazil. It has a margin of error of plus or minus two percentage points.

Silva leaves office Jan. 1 after eight years. Brazil's presidents are limited to two consecutive terms.

He will be handing over power to his hand-chosen successor, Dilma Rousseff, who won election in October.
