NEW YORK, June 27. /TASS/. The world has more confidence in Russian President Vladimir Putin than in his US counterpart Donald Trump, says a poll carried out by the US-based Pew Research Center among 40,000 respondents in 37 countries on all five continents.
The results indicate that 27% of respondents voiced confidence in Putin saying he does "the right thing regarding world affairs." Some 28% trust Chinese President Xi Jinping, and only 22% feel this way about Trump.
Meanwhile, German Chancellor Angela Merkel enjoys the highest rating with 42%.
Most respondents (75%) branded Trump as being arrogant, intolerant (65%) and even dangerous (62%). Whereas, more than half of the respondents (55%) called Trump a strong leader and another 39% said he is charismatic.
"The share of the global public that expresses a favorable view of America is on the decline," the survey says. Only 30% of Mexicans conveyed a positive attitude toward the US, compared with 66% at the end of Obama’s presidential term.
In Canada and Germany, the figure dropped 22 points to 43% and 35%, respectively. In many European countries, confidence in the US is comparable with 2003 figures, when George Bush announced plans to invade Iraq.
