A poll collected by Eurasia Group revealed President Donald J. Trump of the United States of America come in second place after President Emmanuel Macron of France in the global popular leader stakes.

Macron first, Trump second
French President Macron comes first with an approval rating of 45 percent. President Trump of the US came second gathering 37 percent of the votes. The present American president has lowest approval rating when compared to other American presidents. If experts are to be believed, its the fault of the president himself to allow it to happen.
Alexander Kliment, the director of research at the Eurasia Group, explained Trump's low popularity worldwide. He said the US President follows a certain political strategy. He pampers the section of the voting population which have put their trust in him at the hustings. Kliment said by doing this, he has positioned himself a ceiling which he cannot break. It restricts his own probable popularity.
Truth be told, French President Macron's approval counts continue to drop after he won a resounding victory in his country's presidential election in May. Similar to President Trump, the French head's ratings are much lower than presidents elected to the office before him. A poll conducted by YouGov showed that Macron's approval rating dropped to 36 percent a short while after he was elected to the highest post in France.
According to experts, Macron's dip in popularity is due to his lack of administrative experience. The French citizenry also did not like his cuts to the military budget. It is apparent that Macron was much more popular among the French when he fiercely opposed the far right leader Marine Le Pen.
The most hated world leader, according to the poll, is Michel Temer of Brazil. The Brazilian president's term ends in 2018, and there is a strong possibility that the numbers could get even lower. Many analysts are of the opinion that the same outcome could also be possible for Trump. This is as the US President get votes only from the ultra-conservative section of the GOP. The president's politics has not only harmed his domestic popularity, it has also downgraded the image of America in the world stage. As per Pew Research, Trump has an approval of 49 percent, much less than Obama's 64 percent.
