Last year's connect with the people scored 54% approval, said the All-Russia Public Opinion Research Centre (WCIOM), releasing results on Monday.
Putin's four-hour-plus grilling took more than 70 questions. Only 5% of those surveyed thought that while content engaged them, the programme lasted too long, the analysts said.
Pollsters' results suggested that 46% of those questioned showed interest in the president's performance. 14% of those surveyed watched the session from start to finish, 20% saw several live excerpts and 12% watched content from news bulletins.
Events in Crimea were the topic recalled by the largest number, rated at 31% Russian-Ukraine relations ranked second, at 18% Putin’s reply to a question about a "First Lady" engaged 7%. Only 4% remembered the president's response when asked about housing, public utilities and pensions.
