Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
According to Levada, in Russia for Medvedev:

55% are of positive opinion about him, 9% of negative, 33% don't know him good enough to have an opinion;

For opinion of his actions as a president: 58% support them, 7% do not, 29% do not know enough to have an opinion;

37% think he is having a strong impact on what is happening in Russia, 41% for moderate impact and 13% for weak.

In another poll

59% support Putin's government actions, and 35% do not (similar figures to the last months of the Zubkov's government). Kasyanov's government had the maximum balance of -1 % between those suporting and those do not, Fradkov's had 4% at the start of the tenure and went lower from there.

54% think that country is moving in the right direction, 27% do not.

83% are supporting Putin's actions as  head of government, 76% of polled support Medvedev's actions as a president (including 98% of those supporting Putin's actions).

Multi-choice question about politicians having the most trust yielded:

 Putin - 56%
 Medvedev - 43%
 Zuganov (Communists) - 8.9%
 Kasyanov - 1.6%
 Berezovsky - 0.5%
