Voters Think Trump Gaining Favor Among World Leaders

President Trump has dealt with many world leaders lately over his unprecedented upcoming summit with North Korea and his decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal. Voters here are growing more optimistic about how world leaders view the president.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 40% of Likely U.S. Voters think most world leaders see President Trump as stronger than President Obama, up slightly from 37% when Rasmussen Reports first asked this question in November. Slightly more (45%) still think most world leaders see Trump as weaker than his predecessor, but that’s down five points from the previous survey. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
