Posted: Jan 13, 2018
Prime Minister Narendra Modi has received a massive global endorsement ahead of his debut appearance as Prime Minister of India at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland, next month, as Zurich, Switzerland-based Gallup International has ranked him 3rd in its highly-regarded annual survey, Opinion of Global Leaders. The ranking puts India's Prime Minister ahead of the likes of China's Xi Jinping, the UK's Prime Minister Theresa May, Russia's Vladimir Putin, Israel's Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump. The only two heads of state to have ranked higher than Prime Minister Narendra Modi are German Chancellor Angela Merkel and France's new President Emmanuel Macron.The survey methodology detailed by Gallup International states that 53,769 persons were interviewed across dozens of countries. The respondents answer as to whether they have a favourable opinion of a particular leader or an unfavourable opinion. In the survey,Prime Minister Narendra Modi attained a 30% 'favourable' rating versus a 22% 'unfavourable'. The net score is, therefore, +8.
New research from Gallup International Association (GIA) and CVoter International collaborative survey has revealed that there has been a significant increase in favourability towards Indian prime minister Narendra Modi and Russian president Vladimir Putin.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel has topped the chart, followed by French president Emmanuel Macron in second place. Meanwhile, US president Donald Trump is now at the rock bottom of global public opinion. Two years back, his predecessor Barrack Obama was rated number one in this global poll.
Modi climbed up on the global rating and is now ranked third; the highest ever rank any Indian prime minister has got so far in the GIA Global polls. Meanwhile, Putin has gone from one in three (33 percent) viewing him favourably to 43 percent, a significant increase over two years.
"Two years ago, just before he left office almost three in five (59%) of those polled throughout 65 countries around the world held a favourable view of US President Barack Obama. This year and having been in office for just over a year, President Trump does not poll so favourably – 31% holding a favourable view of him, 58% an unfavourable view," the report added.
Also on the list was Russian President Vladimir Putin, who received a net promoter score of +3.
"However, it is Pope Francis who records the highest level of favourability – 56%, rising to 75% of those surveyed in Latin America and 66% of those living in EU-Europe," the report said.
