For First Time Ever, Majority Believe World Leaders Don’t Respect Obama - See more at: http://www.tpnn.com/2014/02/24/for-first-time-ever-majority-believe-world-leaders-dont-respect-obama...



 



 



-Gallup Poll



For the first time of his presidency, the majority of Americans believe that world leaders don’t respect Obama. This is according to a new Gallup poll released today. 



In 2009, 67% believed world leaders respected Obama, while today Gallup reports that the number has literally crashed, all the way down to 41%. This comes after very little change from 2010-2013. Last year, in 2013, a majority, 51%, still believed that Obama was respected by world leaders. 



Gallup states that the decline has been most pronounced among independent voters and among Democrats (Republicans already believed world leaders didn’t respect Obama).  Now 57% of Independents and even 28% of Democrats believe Obama is not respected on the international stage. 



While the poll doesn’t speculate as to the reason for the decline, it is likely Americans believe that world leaders, including our allies, don’t enjoy being spied on by the Obama NSA and that Obama lost significant credibility after his “line in the sand,” comments about Syria. 



That says a lot!
