Modi tops chart again in global leader approval ratings

India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has again topped the global leaders’ highest approval ratings list, leaving behind his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau and the US President Joe Biden.

Modi's approval rating was at its peak in May 2020 during the nationwide lockdown, while dipping to its lowest during the disastrous second COVID wave last year.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been listed as the most unpopular of all.

The latest ratings by data intelligence company Morning Consult suggest that Modi has a net approval rating of 50, with 71 per cent of respondents voting in approval while 21 per cent voting in disapproval, the Hindustan Times reported.

Since the time Morning Consult started tracking each leader, Modi's approval rating was at its peak in May 2020 during the nationwide lockdown, while dipping to its lowest during the disastrous second COVID wave last year.

The company is currently tracking the approval ratings of government leaders of Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Spain, Britain and the US.

Johnson, who has been facing criticism over the reports of him partying in the lockdown, has received a net approval rating of -43 as 69 per cent of respondents disapproved of the Conservative UK leader. 

The other leaders who have a net negative approval rating are Biden, Trudeau, Brazil’s Jair Bolsanaro, France’s Emmanuel Macron, South Korea’s Moon Jae-in, Australia’s Scott Morrison, and Spain’s Pedro Sanchez.

The ratings are based on a seven-day moving average of adult residents, with sample sizes varying by country.
