In the 8 months that I've been in Liberia, I can honestly say that the media, especially the newspapers, have really changed in their treatment of this president. They have become much less hysterical about her every flaw, and they have stopped blaming her quite so often for all the country's woes. And this is in spite of some high-profile battles between the Executive Mansion and the press. I've never seen an opinion poll, but if the media can be relied upon as any kind of reflection of the people's mood (at least the more educated class in Monrovia), then I'd guess the people have an overall favorable impression of the president's first year.
