Popular support for Russian President Boris El'tsin and his policies is narrow and volatile. His success in elections is due largely to the absence of credible opponents. Support for the 1991 coup and its goals has increased, especially among voters who have defected from El'tsin, indicating the possibility of another coup attempt. Furthermore, the reform agenda he supports is jeopardized by fickle support. El'tsin was initially elected as the sole candidate advocating further reform and democratization. Rising doubts are politically, rather than economically, inspired.
