It would appear that riding shirtless on horseback beats mom jeans …
According to a YouGov/Economist survey, 78% viewed Russian President Vladimir Putin as somewhat to very strong leader, while just 45% saw Barack Obama the same way. Gee, ya think? You are comparing an ex-KGB official with a community organizer, need anyone say more. The 45% is some what high in my opinion. Exactly what has Barack Obama done to show he is a leader, let alone a strong one? One does not have to like Putin, or agree with anything he does or says to understand he is a stronger leader than Obama. Vladimire Putin is running circles around this naive president as Russian troops mass at the Ukraine border. Welcome to what America would have looked like had Ronald Regan not defeated Jimmy Carter in 1980.
You make the call
Maybe it is the photos of him posing shirtless on horseback, or his military push into Ukraine, but Americans in a new poll believe Russian President Vladimir Putin is a much stronger leader than President Obama.
A YouGov/Economist survey of 1,000 adults interviewed March 8-10 found that 78 percent view Putin as somewhat to very strong leader. Just 45 percent see Obama the same way. Worse, more Americans, 55 percent, view Obama as a weak leader.
The poll comes as the president is struggling with a response to Putin’s push into Ukraine and expectations that Crimea will break off and join Russia.
