Vladimir Putin’s Popularity Hits 20 Year Low

(RepublicanInformer.com)- According to a Pew Research Center assessment of 18 countries, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s approval ratings have fallen to their lowest point in two decades due to his invasion of nearby Ukraine.

Between mid-February and mid-May, the poll, released on Wednesday, polled more than 23,000 adults in 18 different nations. It concluded that the Russian president had overtaken the United States as the least popular world leader.

The majority of the interviews done by the American organization happened after Russia invaded Ukraine on February 24.

Nearly eight out of ten (78%) respondents who took part in the study said they have no faith in Putin, while a median of 90% indicated they don’t trust him “to do the right thing” in international affairs.

Putin’s popularity has been falling in many nations over the past 20 years, according to Pew, but this year, amid the Ukraine conflict, these numbers reached record lows in every country where trends are available, with double-digit drops in most since the organization’s previous survey year.

According to the survey, people who support right-wing populist parties in their nation are more likely to trust Putin’s activities. For instance, just over half, or 55 percent, of Greeks who favorably view the Greek Solution party said they trusted Putin’s management of foreign affairs.

According to Pew, the Russian president did experience a fall in support from people who back right-wing populist parties in their nation this year compared to 2021.

The only nation where the majority of participants endorsed Putin was Malaysia.

Most Americans do not like how the U.S. is responding to the war in Ukraine and are closely monitoring it.

According to a recent NPR/Ipsos poll, the majority of Americans believe President Biden has handled the war poorly. While the majority claim they fear starting a more significant battle, many believe the president has been acting too cautiously.

More than 6 in 10 Americans support providing Ukraine with some of the support it seeks while attempting to avert a more serious military clash with Russia. Less than 2 out of 10 people believe that the U.S. should grant Ukraine’s every request, even at the risk of a more significant conflict.

A substantial majority of Republicans, Democrats, and independents concurred with those responses, which were strikingly constant across the political spectrum. But that bipartisan accord disintegrates when Americans are asked to rate President Biden’s performance.
