Two Global Leaders with Very Different Global Perceptions- Top Leaders of the World

New research from WIN/Gallup International shows that when it comes to global leaders there are two leaders who have significantly higher recognition than others. President Obama is significantly more admired around the world than anyone else, while President Putin divides opinion.

Almost three in five (59%) of those polled throughout 65 countries around the world hold a favourable view of outgoing US President Barack Obama. Slightly fewer than one in three (29%) view him unfavourably. Despite recently seen taking the fight on with ISIS in Syria, President Putin splits opinion with one in three (33%) viewing him favourably but 43% viewing him unfavourably. However, when looking at the two most populous countries in the world President Putin remains increasingly popular.

President Obama fares particularly well in South Asia (76%), in the EU countries (67%), Latin America (65%), Sub Saharan Africa (65%) and East Asia (65%). However, throughout the MENA region his favourability plummets to 33%. President Putin on the other hand is most popular in the ex-Soviet States (55%) but significantly more unpopular in EU-Europe (67%) and North America (65%).

WINGIA Gallup international

I was not surprised by downfall of European leaders and a bit surprised the locality when its about Putin ( ex Soviet countries ) as there has been huge hype in ATS about Putin for years lol.
What also is quite obvious ME leaders also enjoy fame among their own people and not much abroad their borders.

Few munchies.. by country

I suggest that the popularity in China is worth noting (presumably influenced by the attitude of the leadership and its media).
For example, Cameron is more popular in China (and even in Mongolia!) than he is in Poland. Similarly Merkel, even Hollande.
This must reflect the fact that European leaders have a policy of approaching China, whereas the Sino-American relationship is more prickly.
