Americans See US World Standing as Worst in a Decade

Americans believe the world at large sees the U.S. more unfavorably (57%) than favorably (42%), their worst assessment of the country’s image in 10 years. …

Fewer than three in 10 Americans (29%) say leaders of other countries have respect for the new president, with 67% saying world leaders do not have much respect for him. When Barack Obama took office in 2009, the results were nearly opposite: 67% of Americans then believed global leaders respected the president, while 20% said leaders did not. CONT.
