    U.S. under Obama leads in survey with Putin's Russia at bottom

    U.S. under Obama leads in survey with Putin's Russia at bottom

    April 21, 2015

    The United States under President Barack Obama has the highest approval for leadership among world powers for the second consecutive year, with 45 percent of those surveyed worldwide rating it favorably in a Gallup Poll. President Vladimir Putin's Russia drew the lowest ratings, with 22 percent of those polled in 134 countries viewing him positively and 36 percent disapproving of his leadership, Gallup managing director Jon Clifton said as the survey taken last year was presented Tuesday in Washington.
    Hardly surprising, Russia in 2014 earned the lowest approval ratings globally for the eighth consecutive year and posted the highest disapproval ratings it has received to date.

    Hey, propaganda was long ago recognized as an effective weapon.

    Whenever there's a hurricane or earthquake around the world who is one of the first on the scene? The US military. People amaze me; everyone hates America until they're receiving some welfare after getting smashed by a natural disaster.

    We are the most consuming yet a very giving nation.

    This is one of those polls that you have to struggle to find the meaning for. Is it better to be at the top, the bottom, or the middle? I can't believe they wasted their time with this one.

    Lol. Anything that doesn't mesh with your anti-US ideology is dismissed as propaganda.

    It's no secret that Russia is the pit of the Earth. I don't need to read a survey to tell you the world feels bad for the decaying Russian people.

    Yes, I was laughing before you. I'm not dismissing the poll, but nice try. Are you denying that western nations engage in propaganda?
