The residents in almost all G-20 nations have more confidence in German Chancellor Angela Merkel than in U.S. President Donald Trump to do the right thing in world affairs, according to a Pew Research Center survey released on Wednesday.

In only two of the G-20 countries surveyed — India (40 percent to 23 percent) and Russia (53 percent to 31 percent) — do citizens have substantially more confidence in Trump than in Merkel regarding international affairs, according to the poll, which was published as leaders from the G-20 nations meet for a summit in Germany this week.

Other results in the survey show:

  • In seven G-20 countries (Germany, France, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Canada, Japan and Australia), the gap for Merkel is extremely high, with an average of well over 70 percent having confidence in her, while the confidence for Trump in those nations hovers around an average of only 20 percent.
  • In the other G-20 countries surveyed, the gap is not nearly as wide, but still exits firmly in Merkel's favor.
  • Even in the United States, more people have confidence in Merkel than in their own president (56 percent to 46 percent).
  • Regarding two of the key issues that will be discussed at the G-20 summit — trade and climate change — the results are even more emphatic against the policies of Trump, with even those in the U.S. being firmly opposed to the positions of their own leader.

The survey, which was fielded in February and March, did not include two of the G-20 nations, China and Saudi Arabia, nor did it include the E.U. as an entity.

For results based on the full sample in a given country, one can say with 95 percent confidence, that the margin of error due to sampling and other random effects, is plus or minus 3 to 5 percentage points, according to the country.
