The firm which uploaded the survey on Thursday said that the exercise was conducted with a sample size of 2,126 adults in India. It showed 66 per cent approval for the PM, while 28 per cent disapproved of him.

"In the United States, surveys are also weighted by race and ethnicity. Respondents complete these surveys in languages appropriate for their countries," it also said.
