The Most Disliked Leaders in the World


To identify the most disliked leaders in the world, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the recent weekly survey on global leader approval ratings from polling organization Morning Consult, which collects survey data in 22 countries. Only the 16 leaders with negative net approval ratings are ranked here.

The latest approval ratings are based on data collected from Oct. 19-25, 2022. Approval ratings are based on a seven-day moving average of adult residents in each country, with sample sizes varying by country. Total 2021 population figures come from the World Bank World Development Indicators.
