”Morning Consult, which tracks national ratings of the elected leaders of 13 countries, shows a 20-point slide over the past year in the proportion of Indians who approve of Mr Modi. Yet at 66% in early June, he still outperforms all the rest,” the American data intelligence firm tweeted.

Morning Consult, which collects data through its political intelligence unit, shows that in August 2019, when the Modi government abrogated Article 370, his approval ratings stood at 82% while disapproval ratings were at 11%.

The Morning Consult Global Leader Approval Rating Tracker, which was updated on Thursday and has a sample size of 2,126 adults in India, showed 66% approval for PM Modi and shows that 28% of those surveyed disapproved of him.

The Morning Consult said that the daily global survey data is based on a “seven-day moving average of all adults in a particular country with a margin of error of between +/- 1-3 per cent.” “All interviews are conducted online, among nationally representative samples of adults. (In India, the sample is representative of the literate population),” it said on its website.

”Surveys are weighted in each country by age, gender, region, and, in certain countries, education breakdowns based on official government sources. In the United States, surveys are also weighted by race and ethnicity. Respondents complete these surveys in languages appropriate for their countries”, it added.
