Prime Minister Modi consistently has approval rating above 71 percent since the Global Leadership Approval project started in August 2019. Since the year 2022, the rating of PM Modi has been above 75 percent.
As per the rating, PM Modi’s ratings trump those of other leaders, including Australian PM Anthony Albanese, French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The poll surveyed 22 global leaders for the ratings.
The survey data which has been compiled by Morning Consult, a company which delivers insights and custom market research on what people think in real-time, suggests that only four world leaders out of the leaders of 22 major countries have an approval rating of more than 50 per cent at their homes.
