Washington Post: The Pew global attitudes project, a big set of periodic surveys on everything from economics to religion, is a terrific window into the public opinions and ideas that increasingly guide our world. I’ll be returning to this data over the coming days and weeks, but this one really struck me. Pew asked people in seven countries whether they prefer democratic government or one with a “strong” leader.
The latter choice was more popular in only two countries: Pakistan and Russia. In the other five, democracy is most popular among polled respondents.
