At a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi is on a much-publicised first official state visit to United States, but a survey conducted by Washington D.C.-based think-tank Pew Research Centre shows that a sizeable portion of the American population has not even heard of him.

Released 21 June, the Spring 2023 Global Attitudes Survey which released its report on June 21 found that 40 per cent of Americans never heard of Modi, the most for any leader on the survey.

Further, 35 per cent said the same of German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, the second on the list, followed by 26 per cent for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and 24 per cent for French President Emmanuel Macron.

Russian President Vladimir Putin with 3 per cent, followed by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, 10 per cent and Chinese President Xi Jinping 13 per cent are in the lower half of the survey findings, meaning that the trio was most heard of in United States.

The results were based on an analysis of 3,576 American adults who were surveyed from 20 to 26 March, 2023. Younger Americans, those under 30, are more likely to have never heard of Modi, with the survey putting this section at 59 per cent.

A significant portion of those who had heard of Indian Prime Minister, however, tend to lack confidence in him, the survey shows that 37 per cent of the people surveyed showed little or no confidence in his capacity to do the right thing in international affairs as compared to the 21 per cent who did.
