STUDY: Americans Not Impressed by World Leaders
Posted Monday, June 2nd 2014 @ 9am  by KFBK News

There aren't many world leaders who currently impress the majority of Americans.

In a new Harris Poll, only two people are getting nods from at least half of the respondents, and they're both spiritual leaders.  

Three-quarters say they think highly of Pope Francis, while 68 percent hold The Dalai Lama in high regard. 

President Obama ranks highest among national leaders, with nods from 49 percent.

The UK's David Cameron follows, with 45 percent saying they have a "very good" or "somewhat good" opinion of him.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, North Korea's Kim Jung Un ranks last, with 80 percent saying they have a poor opinion of him.  

Only 5 percent of the Americans polled view him favorably.
