(July 28, 2020 / JNS) At least 64 percent of Israelis favorably view U.S. leadership, according to a Gallup poll released on Monday.
It is the third-highest mark worldwide, preceded by Albania (67 percent) and Kosovo (82 percent), and succeeded by Mongolia (62 percent), Turkmenistan (62 percent), Poland (59 percent), the Philippines (58 percent), Nepal (54 percent) and Myanmar (53 percent).
Overall, across 135 countries and areas, the approval shown in the Jewish state for America drops by half, with 33 percent approving of U.S. leadership—a slight increase of three points from 2018.
The report, titled “U.S. Leadership Remains Unpopular Worldwide,” is the last to be released before the presidential elections in November, according to Gallup.

One of the most intriguing stories of the sudden Coronavirus crisis is the role of the internet. With individuals forced into home quarantine, most are turning further online for information, education and social interaction.
JNS's influence and readership are growing exponentially, and our positioning sets us apart. Most Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas. JNS is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.
During this crisis, JNS continues working overtime. We are being relied upon to tell the story of this crisis as it affects Israel and the global Jewish community, and explain the extraordinary political developments taking place in parallel.
