Prime Minister Narendra Modi has topped the ‘Global Leader Approval’ ratings for the second time. These ratings have been released by American research firm – Morning Consult. With the highest 71 per cent approval ratings, PM Modi is at the top amongst world leaders – American President Joe Biden, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and ten others.
According to the data published by the American firm, PM Modi was ranked as the most approved world leader, followed by Mexico President López Obrador at 66% and Italy Prime Minister Mario Draghi at 58%. In India, the sample is collected from literate population. For this week’s survey, the group said online interviews of approximately, 2,126 adults were sampled for the data on India.
According to Morning Consult, these surveys are weighted in each country by age, gender, region, and, in certain countries, education breakdowns based on official government sources. In the United States, surveys are also weighted by race and ethnicity. Respondents complete these surveys in languages appropriate for their countries. Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro who has been heavily criticized for his mishandling of Covid-19 pandemic has the lowest approval rating in this list.
Meanwhile, US President Joe Biden is at a higher disapproval rating and is currently at 56% disapproval. US Economy, Afghanistan pullout aftermath and immigration issues are the issues likely to have caused damages to Biden who has been the President of the United States of America for almost a year now.
