MEXICO CITY (AP) - A poll in Mexico says approval for President Enrique Pena Nieto has dropped four percentage points in his first year in office.

The Consulta Mitofsky firm says Pena Nieto had an approval rating of 54 percent when he took office Dec. 1, 2012. A year later, it's 50 percent.

The survey released Monday says many Mexicans feel Pena Nieto hasn't done a good job on the economy or security. Those are Mexico's two main problems, according to the poll.

Mitofsky surveyed 1,000 voters across Mexico in face-to-face interviews between Sept. 27 and Nov. 17 on whether they agreed or disagreed with the way Pena Nieto has been governing. The error margin was plus or minus three percentage points.
