India is the fourth most favoured country in the United States, next only to Britain, Canada and Israel, a survey has found.

The Polling Institute of Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, which conducted the survey, asked Americans to rank 15 countries, as well as the Palestinian Authority and the United Nations, on a scale of zero to 100, the Ynetnews reported.

Britain topped the chart with 78.3 points out of 100, Canada, America's northern neighbour, took second place with 71.7 points, Israel and India followed with 65.9 and 53.4 points respectively.

North Korea with 15 points and Iran with 13.9 points occupied the last two positions.

The Palestinian Authority with 22.8 points and Syria trailing not far behind with 21.7 points were also among those at the bottom of the chart.
