Egypt’s Islamist President Mohamed Morsi (despite the violent nationwide protests against him) has a 53% approval rating (7 points higher than Obama):
(Egypt Independent) A poll conducted in January has shown President Mohamed Morsy’s public approval rating to be 53 percent, a decline of about 10 percentage points compared to a poll conducted at the end of December 2012.
According to the poll, conducted by the Egyptian Center for Public Opinion Research (Baseera), those who said they “agree” with the president’s performance fell from 40 to 34 percent, and those who “strongly agree” from 23 to 19 percent.
The center said in a statement that the most recent poll was conducted using the same methodology as the one conducted in December, and without any change in the wording of questions.
The results of the poll said that 39 percent of respondents do not agree approve of the president’s performance, while 8 percent do not know or have no opinion.
Obama at 46%:
(Business Insider) — President Barack Obama saw a sharp two-month in his approval rating, a new poll from Quinnipiac University shows.
The new poll found that just 46 percent of respondents approve of Obama’s job performance, while 45 percent disapprove. That’s a steep decline from a December poll that showed a post-election bounce, as 53 percent approved of Obama and just 40 percent disapproved. Overall, it’s a 12-point swing in a matter of two months.
