Donald Trump is held in higher regard by his citizens than the British and French leaders, polls across the three countries have revealed.
FiveThirtyEight, a non-partisan website that focuses exclusively on poll analysis, has been tracking the US President’s approval rate since he was inaugurated. Their latest figures show he is supported by almost 40% of the American public, and that number is expected to slowly rise over the course of his leadership.
In spite of mainstream media’s glorification of the Emmanuel Macron, French-based research organization Odoxa found he holds the lowest approval rating seen in years at just 29%.
They tweeted the following, ‘Record collapse in President’s popularity: E. Macron lost 12 pts this summer and is for the first time behind his prime minister’.
The British Prime Minister Theresa May stands just in front of Macron at 32%.
Although Trump possesses the highest approval figure it is worth noting all three have extreme disapproval rates, of 41%, 54% and 71% to May, Trump and Macron respectively.
In reference to Macron’s disapproval rate, it is worth noting the poll did not include a third option for those who are undecided.
