Russians Favor Direct Election of Governors, "None of the Above" Option

Results of the latest opinion survey suggest that 59% of Russian citizens are in favor of a return to the direct election of regional governors, who for the last several years have been appointed by the central government in Moscow. Of all the possible electoral reforms, however, Russians are most in favor of a return of a "none of the above" option on the ballot. 85% of those polled though that the right to vote against everyone on the ballot, which had been taken away in recent years, should be reinstated.
