New Poll: Majority Says Obama Not Respected On World Stage

Obama poll not respected - Miserable Failure


President Obama was supposed to be different. He was supposed to bring people together. He was supposed to bring nations together. He was supposed to be different than Bush, and all the bad things Obama accused Bush of, Barack was supposed to do something about.

But he hasn't, and that's why a majority of Americans believe that Barack Hussein Obama is not respected by other world leaders.

What is there to respect in Obama? He spies on leaders of other nations. There were no consequences to Syria using chemical weapons against their own people despite Obama drawing a so-called red line that he refused to enforce. Guantanamo Bay prison is still opened despite his promise to close it. And of course he lies through his teeth almost on a daily basis and tells huge whoppers like, "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan."

So why would any American voter or world leader be able to trust this man and have confidence he will do what he says he will do?

For the first time, more than half of the U.S. public said President Obama is not respected by other world leaders, according to a Gallup poll released Monday.

The new poll indicates 53 percent said Obama is not respected on the world stage, compared to 41 percent who said he is respected.

Gallup notes the public’s opinion has shifted significantly in the last year. In 2013, 51 percent said Obama was respected internationally, while 43 percent said he wasn’t.

The latest results came from Gallup’s World Affairs poll, conducted Feb. 6-9.

Obama’s perceived respect from other world leaders has dropped among Republicans, Democrats and independents. Only 19 percent of Republicans said Obama is respected internationally, 34 percent of independents held that view and 69 percent of Democrats said Obama is respected.

The poll comes as Obama tackles a slew of foreign policy issues including Syria, Iran, Ukraine and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
