(April 23) — President Barack Obama is still the world’s most respected leader, according to a new six-country poll.
Released today by France 24 and Radio France Internationale, the Harris Interactive Poll asked 6,135 adults between the ages of 16 and 64 who live in the United States, Britain, France, Italy, Germany or Spain to name their favorite world leaders.
Seventy-seven percent of those surveyed chose Obama, which is one percentage point higher than when Harris Interactive asked the same question in November.
President Obama and the Dalai Lama rank at the top of a new poll measuring the world’s most popular leaders.
Close on his heels is the Dalai Lama, Tibet’s spiritual leader, who was mentioned by 75 percent of those polled. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton came in third at 62 percent, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel was mentioned by 54 percent of respondents, good enough for fourth place.
Taken between March 31 and April 12, the poll found that Pope Benedict XVI still ranked as the seventh most popular leader, despite the ongoing revelations about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.
On the flip side of the coin, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi and Chinese President Hu Jintao earned a collective thumbs-down as the world’s least popular leaders.
The ongoing revelations this article talked about must be Liberal Propaganda. Because sexual abuse does not happen in the Catholic Church, according to Kay. All of those molested children are lieing its all Liberal propaganda. (I had to take a break because Kay was saying just that.) But, seriously to the Republicans that is trying to bring down the Democratic President because he wants to protect the CITIZEN and not the Corporations. The Big Corporations is a cancer in this nation, they dont deserve the bailouts the last president started. It would have been more detrimental as well. I am going to do something on how legalization of Marijuana could help this nations economy.
It’s not liberals trying to bring down conservatives like the idiots that are political entertainment shows. (Its all scripted to show the networks views.) Anyway Obama is doing a good job and everyone except for the most Radical Fundamentalist Republicans (does not mean they are religious. Even though any Fundamentalist in my mind is a Radical Fundamentalist and uses the same tactics for terror that the Islamic Fundamentalists do. Psychological Terrorism is far worse than a plane killing tens of thousands of people.)
