Global confidence in US leadership at new low: Poll 

Washington, Jan 18 (IANS) Global confidence in the US leadership under President Donald Trump has fallen to a new low and the country now ranks below China in worldwide approval ratings, according to a new Gallup poll released on Thursday.

The survey of opinion in 134 countries showed a record collapse in approval for the US role in the world, from 48 per cent under Obama to 30 per cent after one year of Trump — the lowest level Gallup has recorded since beginning its global leadership poll over a decade ago.

The result came just a day after a separate Gallup survey found that Trump reaches the first anniversary of his inauguration with the lowest average approval rating of any elected President in his first year.

“I think a lot of respondents when they’re being asked this, the first thing that’s top of mind is the leader of the country,” Gallup’s global managing partner, Jon Clifton, told Politico magazine.
