Islamabad, Aug.15 (ANI): Most Pakistanis hate the Taliban as much as they consider United States as their enemy, a recent opinion poll has reveled.

According to Pew Global Attitudes poll about 70 percent of Pakistanis are now against the Taliban's violent policies.

The poll revealed that out of 1,254 adult Pakistanis, with whom face-to-face interviews were conducted, about 64 percent considered Washington as an 'enemy'.

The public's view about the Taliban has marked major change since 2008 when only 33 percent of Pakistanis had an unfavourable view about the extremists.

The poll also revealed that Pakistanis are not satisfied with the Gilani government.

While President Asif Zardari's popularity has hit an all-time low of 32 per cent, 79 percent people see Pakistan Muslim League-N chief Nawaz Sharif as a more able leader.

However, most Pakistanis appeared to be satisfied with their personal live with 74 percent saying they are content with their living standard. (ANI)
