Haitian the highest approving population for U.S. job performance and leadership

What the Gallup survey has found is that of 24 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean surveyed, Haiti came up on top with an approval rating of 71 percent and that Haitians in general have consistently remained the highest approving populace in the region.


It would have been interesting to also ask the Haitian population whether or not they approve the way the U.S. has been working with current government in Haiti? is it likely that the government of Michel Martelly will receive an approval rating of 71 percent just like the U.S?
