In comparison to other world leaders meeting at the G7, how popular is Joe Biden?
President Joe Biden is making his first foreign tour since taking office in January, but where does he stand globally?
According to Morning Consult, a nonpartisan polling firm located in the United States, he is doing better than at least four of the other foreign leaders who will be attending the G7 summit in England this weekend.
According to Morning Consult, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi is the most popular leader at today’s summit, which is focusing on, among other things, ending the coronavirus pandemic, preventing future pandemics, and addressing climate change. Draghi has a 65 percent approval rating among adults as on Thursday.
Morning Consult conducts over 11,000 daily leadership approval interviews around the world, based on a seven-day moving average of all people in a country. The poll has a margin of error of 1 to 3 percentage points and was performed online with a representative sample in multiple languages and weighted by demographic characteristics.
Angela Merkel, the German prime minister, is the second most popular leader at this weekend’s conference, which was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic that shut down numerous countries.
COVID-19 has killed at least 600,000 people in the United States and nearly 3.8 million people worldwide.
Each year, the G7 meets informally to represent the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Canada, Italy, Japan, and Germany. This is Biden’s first trip outside of the United States since taking office in January.
Each week, Morning Consult examines governmental leaders’ approval ratings in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, South Korea, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
According to a Morning Consult poll, Biden is the third most popular leader at this weekend’s gathering, with a 52 percent approval rating, after securing congressional approval for two nearly $2 trillion relief packages and pledging millions of COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries after the US increased its vaccine distribution efforts.
