Global Poll Shows US Prestige Plummeting Under Trump

File 20180119 80194

The margin of error was 3 percent.

The recent drop in approval ratings is unrelated to the world's being less familiar with the new US administration. And the falls have been most marked among the United States' allies and partners in Europe and the Americas.In Canada, to the north, approval of U.S. leadership plunged 40 points from 60% in 2016 to 20% in 2017. The 43% median disapproval, up 15 points from the previous year, set a new record as well, not only for the US but for any other major global power that Gallup has asked about in the past decade.

With one year in office under his belt, more than half of Americans think President Donald Trump has been unsuccessful while 87 percent of Republicans said he was a success, according to a new Marist poll. But our analysis of Gallup approval ratings for the first 365 days of every presidency back to Jimmy Carter indicates that Trump is nearly always at the back of the pack in the race for support from fellow Americans.

If the 2018 election were held today, 46 percent of people said they would vote for a Democrat in their congressional district compared to 40 percent of people who would vote for a Republican. "The median of 24% who approve of United States leadership in the region now stands at about half of what it was in the past year of the Obama administration (49%)". "It's not really surprising how Americans rated President Trump's first year given what he has been pitching, how he's been pitching it, and to whom".

The U.S. did not fare much better in Europe, where the current rating stands at 25 percent. The poll's results are unique in that it allows participants to choose "neutral" rather than approve or disapprove, and the findings take on more weight considering the same poll predicted Trump would defeat Clinton in 2016. Between March and November 2017, residents in 134 countries or areas were asked to rate U.S., German and Russian leadership, and residents in 135 countries or areas were asked to rate the leadership of China.

37 percent said none of the potential responses made them feel positive about Trump.

According to the poll, conducted at the beginning of this week and released on the eve of the first anniversary of Trump's inauguration, Melania Trump was viewed "very or somewhat favourably" by 48 per cent of the survey's 1,500 respondents, and unfavourably by 33 per cent.
