Putin’s popularity has soared in recent months

The ex-KGB strongman attracted the support of four out of five Express.co.uk readers, compared

with just one in five who opted for the current PM running the country.

Asked ‘Who would you rather was Britain’s prime minister?’, 78 per cent chose the Russian

president, while 22 per cent voted for Mr Cameron.

The poll of 1,000 people follows an Express.co.uk survey on Putin’s airstrikes against ISIS in

Syria, which found more than 70 per cent of readers supported the bombing raids.

Putin’s popularity has soared in recent months, with a Russian poll carried out in October putting

his approval rating at 87 per cent.

In the same month, Mr Cameron’s approval rating continued to nosedive with 49 per cent judging

him to be doing a bad job.

Putin’s popularity in Russia has remained consistently high in the wake of the annexation of

Crimea and airstrikes in Syria.

      They routinely denounces President Vladimir Putin as an authoritarian ruler who has undermined Russian democracy.

      They claims Russia’s economy is in crisis and facing imminent collapse.

      They vilify Russia’s military assistance to the Syrian government of Bashar Assad.

      They questions the viability of Russia’s military treaties and economic agreements with China.

      But they never bother to explain why the “authoritarian” Putin maintains a consistently high citizen approval, not just in Russia, but in other countries as well.

    Yes Putin for world leader…he stands alone as a true statesman in this Matrix. Proving what utter scum is in control. I hear he has Izrahell on lockdown now. Their air force grounded and their ships too. Oh dear they can only attack the women and children of Palestine now…their days are numbered since the Russian plane crash.

    Who knows what deals have been done. Russia is clearing flights with Israel and vice versa. The US airforce has stopped bombing Syria and has withdrawn F-16s, yet is still supporting ISIS in Iraq.

  5. Lynn says:

    Deals within deals Tap…still he is in a stronger position both morraly and militarily.At least that is hopefull. A strong opponent was needed. Who else was there who could do this.
    More intelligence has been given to a watching public than ever before.
    He has come in late but he could just topple this grip on the NWO.
