Swiss President Alain Berset secures the second position, closely followed by Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
The approval rating rankings position US President Joe Biden at the 8th spot, while UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak finds himself at the 13th position among 22 world leaders. The latest ratings are based on data collected from the 7th to the 13th of this month. The methodology involves calculating a seven-day moving average of responses from adult residents in each country, with sample sizes varying depending on the country. It is worth noting that Prime Minister Modi had previously held the top position in the ratings as well.
