Poll Finds President Obama Is
World's Most Respected Leader

By David Knowles

President Barack Obama is still the world's most respected leader, according to a new six-country poll.

Released today by France 24 and Radio France Internationale, the Harris Interactive Poll asked 6,135 adults between the ages of 16 and 64 who live in the United States, Britain, France, Italy, Germany or Spain to name their favorite world leaders.

Seventy-seven percent of those surveyed chose Obama, which is one percentage point higher than when Harris Interactive asked the same question in November.

Close on his heels is the Dalai Lama, Tibet's spiritual leader, who was mentioned by 75 percent of those polled. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton came in third at 62 percent, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel was mentioned by 54 percent of respondents, good enough for fourth place.

Taken between March 31 and April 12, the poll found that Pope Benedict XVI still ranked as the seventh most popular leader, despite the ongoing revelations about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church.

On the flip side of the coin, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Libya's Moammar Gadhafi and Chinese President Hu Jintao earned a collective thumbs-down as the world's least popular leaders.

B4B Note: Since the media loves polls so much, wondering why THIS poll hasn't been all over the news ? Could it be that they only report polls which can be most harmful...most of which THEY are the pollsters ? Just another pathetic example of the media manipulation we are forced to live a third-world country. And they call it 'liberal media'. (yea right !)
Just pathetic !

Which is why WE must FIGHT
manipulation with TRUTH !
