Here's how the rest of the world feels about Putin

Vladimir Putin enjoys an incredibly high approval rating at home in Russia.

For the month of July, his approval rating was up at 87%, following an all-time high of 89% in June, according to polling from the Levada Centre. (By comparison, Obama’s approval rating is around 46%, according to Gallup.)

However, the Russian president’s popularity doesn’t quite translate.

A new poll from Pew Research Center suggests that out of the 39 nations (excluding Russia) surveyed, not too many see Putin in a positive light.

“A median of 58% around the world hold a negative opinion about Putin. His strongest critics are in Spain (92% no confidence), Poland (87%), France (85%) and Ukraine (84%),” according to the report.

“Three-quarters or more in Western Europe and North America are also critical of Putin, as are majorities in the Middle East.”

Still, there were two countries where more than half of the public had confidence in Putin: Vietnam (70%) and China (54%).
