This is the text (if you need help).

Pope Francis is the most popular world leader. Researchers asked 1,000 people in 64 countries. They said 54 per cent of people have a good opinion of Francis. He was most popular with Roman Catholics. People who did not believe in god liked him. The researchers said he rose above religion.

Portugal and the Philippines gave him ratings of 94% and 93%. Algeria, Tunisia and Turkey gave him a negative rating. Most people in Azerbaijan said they did not know much about him. The Pope beat Barack Obama. The BBC said Francis has, "won the hearts and minds…of people from other religions".
