World Leaders of Today

Posted on 03 May 2011

In a recent survey, NPolls asked the world who the most favored political leader of today is. With no surprise, the name ‘Barack Obama’ popped up significantly by 54% of respondents. Of the six leaders discussed (Sarkozy, Berlusconi, Obama, Merkel, Cameron and Harper), Obama was not only most favored overall, but his political outlook upon world affairs was also appreciated by majority of the population. Meanwhile, Silvio Berlusconi was surely not praised for his role as a leader… On a 1-5 scale, the population voted Berlusconi’s respect and empathy as a leader a 2.7 and 2.6, his own Italy rating him a mere 2.8 for charisma.

Tributed as the most influential global hero…Nelson Mandela. 26% of the population considered this former president of South Africa to be the most inspiring, above Kennedy, Gandhi and FDR.
