Narendra Modi remains 'by far'



Prime Minister Narendra Modi remains "by far" the most popular figure in Indian



politics, the Pew said today, releasing the main findings of its latest survey conducted



among 2,464 respondents in India.



Modi at 88 per cent is 30 points ahead of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi (58 per cent),



31 points ahead of Congress president Sonia Gandhi (57 per cent) and 49 points ahead



of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal (39 per cent), said the survey conducted



between February 21 and March 10 this year.



Pew said the public's "positive assessment" of Modi is buoyed by "growing



contentment" with the Indian economy: more than eight-in- ten say economic



conditions are "good", up 19 percentage points since immediately before the 2014



election.



The share of adults who say the economy is "very good" (30 per cent) has tripled in



the past three years, it added.



 



Overall, seven-in- ten Indians are now "satisfied" with the way things are going in the



country. This positive assessment of India’s direction has nearly doubled since 2014,



Pew said.



According to Pew, at least nine-in- ten Indians in the southern states of Andhra



Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Telangana and in the western states of



Maharashtra, Gujarat and Chhattisgarh hold a favorable view of the prime minister.



The same is true for more than eight-in- ten in the eastern states of Bihar, Jharkhand,



Odisha and West Bengal and the northern states of Delhi, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh,



Punjab, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh.



"Since 2015, Modi's popularity is relatively unchanged in the north, has risen in the



west and the south, and is down slightly in the east," it said.



Notably, the survey reflects a 21 percentage points drop in favorable view of America



among Indians from 70 per cent in 2015 to just 49 per cent in 2017.



Only 40 per cent express confidence in President Donald Trump to do the right thing



regarding world affairs, down 34 points from their faith in his predecessor Barack



Obama in 2015.



Same is the case with China, whose favorability rating among Indians have dropped



from 41 per cent in 2015 to 26 per cent in 2017. The survey was conducted before the



Doklam crisis.



According to Pew Survey, despite periodic outbreaks of religious violence, relatively



few Indians see communal relations as a very big problem.



 



"Similarly, despite Prime Minister Modi’s decision last November to abolish high-



value bank notes, less than half of the Indian population sees the lack of availability of



cash to be a major problem," it said.
