U.S. Ratings at Rally Under Biden

Germany's ratings remain highest

Six months into Joe Biden's presidency, approval ratings of U.S. leadership around the world had largely rebounded from the record-low ratings observed during the Trump administration.

A new Gallup report shows that as of early August 2021, across 46 countries and territories, median approval of U.S. leadership stood at 49 percent. This rating is up from the 30 percent median approval at the end of Donald Trump's presidency and matches the rating during former President Barack Obama's first year in office in 2009.

However, while the 49 percent median approval rating for U.S. leadership so far under Biden compares favorably with ratings during the Obama administration, the 36 percent disapproval rating is also higher than any of those under Obama. Still, disapproval under Biden is seven percentage points lower than the final disapproval rating under Trump -- a record-high 44 percent.
