"Sixty-seven percent say world leaders respect Mr. Obama, while 18 percent say they do not respect the president. That's a sharp contrast to the response when this question was asked about Mr. Obama's predecessor, George W. Bush, in July 2006: Just 30 percent then said the president is respected by the leaders of other countries.

"President Obama's approval ratings on foreign policy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the economy are nearly as high as his 66 percent approval rating overall.

"Fifty-nine percent approve of his handling of foreign policy, and an identical percentage approve of his handling of Iraq; 58 percent approve of his handling of Afghanistan, while 56 percent approve of his handling of the economy.

"the percentage that thinks the country is now headed in the right direction has been growing steadily since Mr. Obama took office."

"Which party is more concerned about people like you?
Democrats 57%
Republicans 22%

Well until he deals with an actual crisis, or has one blow up in his face, what would you expect?

and an identical percentage approve of his handling of Iraq


That's funny. He got elected saying he was getting us out ASAP. He does what the people in Iraq tell him to do.

58 percent approve of his handling of Afghanistan


What has he done so far?

while 56 percent approve of his handling of the economy.


He pushed all of our problems off on future generations. Not a surprise here, either.

The same 58 % couldn't tell you who their senator or congress rep is.

They also couldn't find Iraq on a map.

Didn't George W Bush have the highest approval rating ever recorded? I guess Obama will never approach W's greatness. :)

Is his approval so high because he's paid for all those folks TVs and rent and cars already? You remember, the only reason he was elected?
