According to a YouGov poll commissioned by the Huffington Post, the percentage of French who have a positive image of Trump is 19%, up from 7% in November 2017. By comparison, the approval rating of France’s own president, Emmanuel Macron, hovers around 30%.
Trump is most popular among supporters of Marine Le Pen’s anti-immigration and euroskeptic National Rally party. Members of the Yellow-Vest also expressed admiration for Trump, saying he put his country’s interests first.
The poll also showed fewer people remain undecided about Trump, while the number with a negative opinion of him rose to 70% to 68%.
