Worldwide Approval of US Leadership Drops Significantly, but Israeli Approval Rises

Median approval of US leadership across the 134 countries surveyed during President Trump's first year in office fell to 30 percent, the lowest figure recorded in the 11 years Gallup has asked the question.

Trump's 39 percent approval rating is the lowest such number the poll has found for any modern president after one year in office, NBC News reported. Eighty-nine percent approved of Trump when he took the Oath of Office a year ago, and Republican approval did not dip below 77 percent since then, according to Gallup's tracking numbers.

Across North and South America, U.S. leadership now has a 24 percent approval rating - less than half of the 49 percent that was reported in Obama's previous year in office.

For the time being, however, voters are skeptical of the president, according to the NBC/WSJ poll.

After successfully shepherding a package of tax cuts and reforms into law last month, Trump's administration has been mired in controversy for much of January thus far.

As the fate of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) hangs in the balance, approval of U.S leadership plummeted with American neighbors Mexico and Canada. Results for the full sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.7 percentage points, it is larger for subgroups. A third of Britons questioned in the new poll expressed approval, with 63% voicing disapproval.

"This year marks a significant change in our trends", said Jon Clifton, global managing partner at Gallup.

The tax victory also seems to be helping Trump galvanize the Republican Party behind him, even those who in the past have been cool to his leadership.

Australia thrash PNG by 311 runs, India hammer Zimbabwe by 10 wickets
India had already sealed a quarter-final spot with back-to-back wins against Australia and Papua New Guinea in Group B. Also joining them was former champion Pakistan which defeated Sri Lanka by three wickets in a Group D match.

The Montreal Cognitive Assessment is actually more detailed and lengthier than the 10-minute quiz recommended by the National Institute of Aging for people 65 and over. "This historic low puts the US's leadership approval rating on par with China's and sets a new bar for disapproval".

Positive views of the United States grew noticeably in only a handful of countries, including Israel, Belarus, Liberia and Macedonia.

Trump's first year in office has aroused particular intense antipathy.

The US did score big in another area, though, with America's disapproval rating reaching new heights of 43 percent, falling far behind Germany (25 percent), China (30 percent) and Russian Federation (36 percent).

"In fact, more people now disapprove of U.S. leadership than approve".

The collapse in support is particularly dramatic in Canada and Latin America, where 49% approved of the Obama administration's leadership, with 27% disapproval in 2016. The US suffered the biggest losses in its own backyard, as approval ratings dropped to 24 percent and disapproval ratings shot up to 58 percent across the Americas. But it also said that "the sharp drops in approval of US leadership in every part of the world are evidence that the other aspects of Trump's foreign policy - and his own words - have sowed doubt about the USA commitment to its partners overseas and called its reliability into question".

U.S. leadership approval ratings declined substantially, by 10 percentage points or more, in 65 out of 134 countries and areas, Gallup said.
