The Israeli and the American flags are screened on the walls of Jerusalem's Old City, on May 14, 2019, to mark one year since the transfer of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

At least 64 percent of Israelis favorably view U.S. leadership, according to a Gallup poll released on Monday.

It is the third-highest mark worldwide, preceded by Albania (67 percent) and Kosovo (82 percent), and succeeded by Mongolia (62 percent), Turkmenistan (62 percent), Poland (59 percent), the Philippines (58 percent), Nepal (54 percent) and Myanmar (53 percent).


Overall, across 135 countries and areas, the US leadership approval ratings drop to only 33 percent—a slight increase of three points from 2018.

The report, titled “U.S. Leadership Remains Unpopular Worldwide,” is the last to be released before the presidential elections in November, according to Gallup.
