PM Modi More Popular Than Meloni, Biden. Tops ‘Global Leader Approval’ List 2023

Prime Minister Narendra Modi continues to be a prominent global leader with an impressive approval rating of 76 per cent, according to a survey conducted by Morning Consult. The US-based consultancy firm’s ‘Global Leader Approval Rating Tracker’ revealed that a significant majority of people in India, 76 per cent, approve of PM Modi’s leadership, while 18 per cent express disapproval, and six per cent did not offer an opinion.

It is to be noted that this will be the fourth time PM Modi topped the list with such a huge margin.

This commanding approval rating places PM Modi far ahead of other world leaders, with Mexico President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador securing the second-best rating at 66 per cent, followed by Switzerland President Alain Berset with 58 per cent. Notably, Prime Minister Modi has consistently held the top spot in previous surveys.

Comparatively, other major global leaders have more modest approval ratings. US President Joe Biden stands at 37 per cent, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau at 31 per cent, UK PM Rishi Sunak at 25 per cent, and France President Emmanuel Macron at just 24 per cent. It’s worth noting that these ratings come in the wake of the Bharatiya Janata Party, led by PM Modi, achieving substantial victories in assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, and Chhattisgarh.

This accomplishment is perceived as a significant boost for PM Modi and his party as they look ahead to the general elections scheduled for 2024. Additionally, Prime Minister Modi recently participated in the Conference of Parties-28 (COP28) Climate Action Summit in the UAE.

It is worth mentioning that PM Modi has consistently maintained high approval ratings, with last year’s rating reaching 72 percent, surpassing notable figures such as US President Joe Biden, Canadian PM Justin Trudeau, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and French President Emmanuel Macron. The sustained popularity of PM Modi is expected to play a pivotal role in shaping the political landscape as the nation moves towards the upcoming elections.
