Latin America: military coup tolerance due to corruption 2019, by country

In a survey conducted between 2018 and 2019, almost six in every ten respondents in Jamaica said a military coup would be justifiable in case of high corruption. This was the highest level of tolerance of military coups due to corruption in all the Latin American and Caribbean countries surveyed. At the other end of the spectrum, only 23 percent of the voting-age adults interviewed in Uruguay would justify a military coup in case of high levels of corruption.
