Public support for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s AK Party hit an all-time low last month amid disenchantment with the Turkish government’s handling of the economy, prominent pollsters said.

A sizable group of Erdogan supporters have now given up on his party but opposition parties have so far failed to provide a home for these voters, who will likely decide the future of Turkey.
