MEXICO CITY — Nearly seven in 10 Mexican city dwellers believe that crime has rendered their cities unsafe, according to a new poll that underscores the ongoing challenge facing President Enrique Peña Nieto, who took office more than a year ago promising to beat back the lawlessness that affects law-abiding Mexicans.

The December poll is the second of its kind to be produced by Mexico’s National Institute of Statistics and Geography. It also found that 65 percent of city-dwelling adults had witnessed a robbery or assault in the last three months, and 39 percent had witnessed a drug deal. Moreover, 62 percent of respondents believed that conditions would remain the same or worsen in the coming year.
