Pope Francis is the most popular world leader among Irish people, who rate British prime minister Theresa May and US president Donald Trump poorly, an international opinion poll published today finds.
The pope was viewed favorably by 70 percent of the Irish respondents to the poll and unfavorably by 21 percent.
Mr. Trump polls an 82 percent unfavorable rating, with just 13 percent looking on him in a positive light. More than two-thirds of respondents (68 percent) viewed Ms. May unfavorably, compared to 22 percent who viewed her favorably.
The research was carried out by the Worldwide Independent Network (WIN) of which the Irish polling company Red C is a member, and their partners Gallup International, in 55 countries between October and this month. A total of 52,793 people were interviewed globally face-to-face, by telephone or online. [ ]
Russian president Vladimir Putin does better than his US counterpart among the Irish, with 71 percent regarding him unfavorably and 18 percent favorably.

Oh dear. Ireland is continuing to swirl down the drain. Ever since they lost their English Protestant persecutors, they’ve been getting less and less resolvedly Catholic.
The Irish need their heads examined.
Too much time in the pubs with the Guinness.
Are a majority of Irish now atheist?
The Pope is not a world leader.
You mean it’s not Bono?
Atheist or very liberal Catholics. They used to be very pro-life, but now a majority of them favor birth control and even abortion.
Now that Ted Kennedy is dead, the Irish have nobody left to admire.
What about their soccer teams? That’s all Europeans seem to care about anymore, other than bashing U.S. & Israel for our `Islamophobia’.
How many people were polled and from Which Ireland? Catholic brainwashing by a Leftwing Pope.
Sure he is. Name anybody else who so fits the description of “World Leader of the Left”?
I just learned that the UCD Student Union IMPEACHED their own recently-elected president because she refused to use Student Union funds to advertise antilife information such as how to go over and get an abortion in the U.K.
Mind you, publishing such information with student funds is unlawful. She was resisting the use of student funds for illegal purposes.
So they voted to impeach her, and I mean overwhelmingly.
I was crushed when I learned this. Geesh. The soul of Ireland down the sewer. It makes the middle of my chest hurt.
yes the Q is: which Ireland of the 2 Irish countries.
And how many in the pole, and how biased.
And I say it is directly related to the NEWS THEY HEAR.
Wow, who knew the Irish are perverse freaks. There goes interest in that trip.
Too much Irish Whisky.
