The leader of the free world

Pew Research has some amazing approval ratings for Angela Merkel. The percentage who say they have confidence in her to do the right thing regarding world affairs is:

  1. Netherlands 88%
  2. Denmark 87%
  3. Sweden 87%
  4. Germany 81%
  5. Belgium 79%
  6. France 78%
  7. UK 76%
  8. Canada 74%
  9. Spain 72%
  10. Australia 72%
  11. South Korea 69%
  12. Japan 67%
  13. US 61%
  14. Italy 50%

Merkel is the de facto leader of the free world, which is astonishing as she was raised in a Warsaw Pact country!

It will be interesting to see who becomes the de facto free world leader after she retires in September.
