2. While the internal consensus seems to resist scandals, U.S. President Donald Trump receives largely negative reviews from the public across 32 countries surveyed by Pew Research Center, especially in Western Europe. Being considered more negatively than the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the French President Emmanuel Macron, and the Russian President Vladimir Putin and the Chinese President Xi Jinping. In general, Trump receives lower ratings than his predecessor, Barack Obama, carrying also to a decline of ratings for the United States. However, positive ratings for Trump have increased since 2018 among supporters of right-wing populist European political parties in France, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, UK, Italy, Spain, the Czech Republic and Hungary. The whole report and related analysis are available on the website. Research Institute on the IPSAPortal
