Global opinion of President Obama slips

SHARE

A new Pew Research survey conducted in 21 nations finds approval of President Obama’s policies abroad “has declined significantly since he first took office, while overall confidence in him and attitudes toward the U.S. have slipped modestly as a consequence.”

“Europeans and Japanese remain largely confident in Obama, albeit somewhat less so than in 2009, while Muslim publics remain largely critical… Meanwhile, support for Obama has waned significantly in China.”
