There's a city leader whose approval rating has just hit an all time low at 40%. That comes as no surprise because his administration has been scandal ridden since its inception and run roughshod over the local's rights. Wherever he makes a public appearance, he's always met with a fury of protests and boos from the local people. Can I describe this most hatred leader as a political pariah?

    What you have is a corrupt and inefficient politician: this is not the attribute of a pariah. A pariah is someone who is an outcast, shunned by all others: 40% support rating is not "shunned."
