14. Rishi Sunak
> Country: United Kingdom
> Net approval: -2%
> Approve: 35%

> Population: 67,326,569

Conservative Party member Rishi Sunak, 42, was the U.K.’s chancellor of the exchequer before winning enough support from the House of Commons to become prime minister on Oct. 25, replacing Mary Elizabeth Truss who resigned after only 50 days in office amid a credibility crisis. Before assuming his new role, Sunak’s net favorability rating fell to negative 18 points in an April IPsos poll, his lowest approval rating since becoming chancellor because of widespread negative perceptions about the state of the country.

U.S. President Joe Biden’s approval rating fell to 39% in a Reuters-Ipsos poll conducted in mid-October and released a day before the Nov. 8 midterm elections. Poll respondents cited the economy as the biggest problem facing the country. Biden, 79, served as U.S. senator for 36 years before becoming President Barack Obama’s vice president and defeating incumbent President Donald Trump by 7 million popular votes and 74 electoral votes in the 2020 presidential election.
