According to a BBC poll, the influence of the U.S. is seen as more positive than negative by a number of countries. This contrasts with poll results during the Bush years.
I heard these results on a BBC news program which is broadcast overnight by KMUW. They, of course, interviewed a conservative talk radio host, who viewed the positive views of Obama by “Democratic/Socialist countries” as less than reassuring. The BBC host did a fairly good job of ridiculing this bumpkin on how it is hard to see how positive views can be so negative.
My president is not perfect, but I am still proud of him and support him.
