Americans confident in Zelenskyy, but have limited familiarity with some other world leaders

Dumbing down America.


Americans express more confidence in Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy than in any of the other six world leaders included in a new Pew Research Center survey. More than half of U.S. adults (56%) have at least some confidence in Zelenskyy to do the right thing regarding world affairs. By comparison, fewer than one-in-ten have confidence in Chinese President Xi Jinping (8%) or Russian President Vladimir Putin (7%).

A chart showing that Zelenskyy gets mostly positive ratings, but few Americans are confident in Xi and Putin.

The survey, conducted March 20-26, finds that sizable shares of the U.S. public have not heard of several world leaders. For example, 40% of U.S. adults say they have not heard of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi; 35% have not heard of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz; and around a quarter have not heard of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (26%) or French President Emmanuel Macron (24%). The survey marks the first time that Pew Research Center has included a “never heard of” response option, which means the results are notdirectly comparable to past surveys that did not include this option.
