World opinion of Obama slips


Global approval and overall confidence in President Obama and the U.S. has declined since 2008. (UPI/Jim Ruymen)

WASHINGTON (UPI) -- Global approval of U.S. President Obama's policies has fallen significantly since he first took office, a Pew Research Center poll released Wednesday indicated.

Besides the slippage in global approval, overall confidence in Obama and attitudes toward the United States dipped, results indicated.

Europeans and the Japanese remain largely confident in Obama, although somewhat less so than in 2009, while Muslim nations remain largely critical, Pew said.

Obama's figures track a similar pattern for overall global ratings for the United States, researchers said. In the European Union and Japan, views remain positive, but the United States is unpopular in nations such as Egypt, Jordan, Turkey and Pakistan.

Support for Obama dropped by 24 percentage points and approval of his policies has fallen 30 points in China, results indicated.

Pew researchers said the global financial crisis and the steady rise of China led many to state China was the world's economic leader. Majorities in Germany, Britain, France and Spain name China as the world's top economic power.

Overall, majorities or pluralities in 12 countries express a favorable opinion of the United States, while five nations held a negative view. In three countries views are closely divided.

The poll also indicated German Chancellor Angela Merkel had mostly favorable ratings in Europe and Russian President Vladimir Putin was rated negatively in most of the countries surveyed.

Results are based on a 21-nation survey conducted by the Pew Research Center's Global Attitudes Project from March 17-April 20. The margins of error ranged from 3.2 percentage points to 5.1 percentage points.
