And while general confidence in Trump's dealings with world affairs in Canada and elsewhere outside the United States has remained low, the results of the annual Pew Research Center survey released on Wednesday point to an established and growing core of Canadian support for US leaders.

Forty-three percent of survey respondents said they have no confidence in Xi to do the right thing in world affairs, compared to 28 percent who said they do have confidence and 23 percent who said they did not know.

A median of 68 percent opposed his imposition of tariffs, 66 percent opposed the withdrawal from climate change agreements and 60 percent were against the US-Mexico border wall.

"For example, more than eight-in-ten Israelis on the ideological right have confidence in Trump, compared with just 37% of those on the left", they said.

The centre's associate director Jacob Poushter says the poll also found an increase in Trump support from the right side of the political spectrum - 43 per cent in Canada, up from 33 per cent the previous year.

Most nations in Asia-Pacific, Middle East and North African and Latin American countries, the Pew Research Center said, "disapprove of restricting immigration into the U.S".

Similarly, in the 33 countries, more people disapprove of approving Trump's decision that the United States be the only world power to withdraw from a nuclear agreement with Iran.

Across Western Europe, approximately 75 percent or more of people in Germany, Sweden, France, Spain and the Netherlands lack confidence in Trump.

"Canada is decidedly a "blue state" in the sense of American politics, that the support for the Democratic party in office is higher than it is when the Republican party is in office", said Elliot Tepper, a political science professor at Carleton University in Ottawa.

Mr Trump also had distinct pockets of support around the world - the majority in the Philippines, Israel, Kenya, Nigeria and India viewed him favourably.

Filipinos still have the highest confidence in US President Donald Trump―even as his ratings have remained low internationally.

The Pew study also sought to gauge respondents' opinions on other world leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

The only policy position included in the survey that was viewed favorably by a plurality of those questioned was the Trump administration's approach to North Korea - although the split was still narrow, with 41% approving and 36% disapproving.

The survey polled 36,923 people in 32 countries from May 18 to October 2, 2019.

But perhaps the most striking aspect of the global poll is that while the president remains deeply unpopular around the world, respondents continued to have a positive opinion of the country he leads.

"Those on the right are much more likely than those on the left to trust Trump's handling of global affairs", said the report. Worldwide confidence in the Trump administration plummeted after his inauguration, while favorable ratings for the United States also declined.

A small majority of Canadian respondents expressed a "very" or "somewhat" favorable opinion of the United States - 51%, compared to 39% in 2018.

Israelis gave the US its highest rating of 83%, but there was a sharp ethnic split - 94% of Israeli Jews see the USA favorably, compared to only 37% of Israeli Arabs.
