Gallup wants us to believe that the world thinks our leaders are the best.
In the recently released Gallup publication, “Rating World Leaders: What People Worldwide Think of the U.S., China, Russia, the EU and Germany,” we learn:
Despite anti-Americanism around the planet, when it comes to international approval of leadership, the world’s residents think U.S. leaders are the best.
U.S. leadership came out on top, again, as it has for the past six years, while Russia placed dead last overall in leadership approval. I will get to Russia in just a bit.
If you are like me, however, you already detect the scent of turd. Here is what we are being sold by poll of Obama in America:
Ironically, in the Gallup poll the US leadership has had SIX consecutive years at the number one spot, thanks undoubtedly to our fearless, feckless leader.
And this is not just any small poll.
According to Gallup, this data was acquired by interviewing 1,000 residents in 136 countries worldwide! Yes, this is the outcome of a worldwide poll. Indeed Obama is LOVED, RESPECTED, dare I say REVERED…WORLDWIDE!
I took it upon myself to call in a few favors around the globe, asking my operatives to help in my unofficial poll, in an attempt to illuminate the Gallup poll for my own edification.
My operates were sent to zoos all over the world, where they interviewed over 1,000 primates, per zoo. Our results were remarkably aped the very results of Gallup.
Because if you believe the leadership in America deserves to be ranked number one, then you have the brain of a MONKEY.
What else did the Gallup polling tell us? Apparently the world is not too crazy about Russia. Ironically, neither are America’s “leaders.”
“Russia in 2014 earned the lowest approval ratings globally for the eighth consecutive year and posted the highest disapproval ratings it has received to date.
In what must have been as much a surprise to Obama as receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, Gallup’s poll reported
“U.S. leadership received the highest approval rating in the world, with the median 45 percent approval topping ratings of the leadership of the European Union, Germany, Russia and China, as it has most years since 2009.”
Given the state of the Middle East, Ukraine, Iran, North Korea, and much of Africa, it’s easy to see how America’s leadership around the world fared so well.
