Obama Gets High Marks in Europe, but U.S. Foreign Policy Is Less Popular

"Barack Obama's popularity has been shrinking in opinion polls in the U.S. since his election, but Europeans still give the American president high marks, according to an annual public-opinion survey in the European Union, the U.S. and Turkey."

"The report, released Wednesday by the German Marshall Fund, showed 77% of Europeans approve of Mr. Obama's handling of international affairs—a record for a U.S. president—compared with 19% support for former President George W. Bush a year ago. In Germany, Europe's biggest country, the jump was 80 percentage points to 92%, the biggest increase in any category in the seven-year history of the survey."
