4. I wonder what the overlap between people who like Congress and Putin is

And do they like EVERYTHING?

"I like puppies, rainbows, traffic jams, red cars, cars of any color really, serial killers, Congress, the beach, bubonic plague..."

6. Congress does not have MIG-25s, hence the higher favorability.

Have you seen a MIG-25 and what it can do? I'm talking speeds of up to Mach 3 and a service ceiling of over 100,000 feet.

8. We had better hurry up and build something that outperforms the MIG-25.

The Russians might take away our freedom(s). First we need to cut entitlement spending because it's holding back essential military spending.

12. G W Bush looked into Putin's eyes and "saw into his soul"

Putin looked back into Mr. Bush's eyes and was unable to detect anything that remotely resembled a soul.

I wonder how the KGB and the NSA would score in a popularity poll?

17. Global Opinion of Russia Mixed

From September 3rd 2013 :

As the current chair of the G20 and host of the organization’s upcoming Leaders’ Summit, Russia has asserted itself on the world stage. Yet, in the court of public opinion, Russia gets a mixed verdict. In a global survey by the Pew Research Center, a median of just 36% among publics in 38 nations express a favorable view of Russia, compared with 39% who hold an unfavorable view, and 19% who do not offer an opinion. By contrast, the same survey found the international image of the U.S. to be much more positive, with a median of 63% expressing a favorable view of America.

In only two countries surveyed do more than half give Russia positive marks: Greece (63% favorable) and South Korea (53%). Elsewhere, opinion of the continent-spanning nation is less favorable, with negative views especially pronounced in the Middle East, Western Europe and Far East neighbor, Japan.

These are among the key findings of a survey by the Pew Research Center conducted from March 2 to May 1, 2013 among 37,653 respondents in 39 countries, including Russia.1 The survey also finds that favorable opinion of Russia has slipped since 2007 in a number of Western countries, including the U.S. and Britain. But the biggest dip in opinion of Russia has occurred in Egypt and Jordan – key countries in the Middle East, a region in which Moscow has played an increasingly prominent role.
