A study carried out by Pew Research has discovered that the rating of US Presidenthas dropped in the international arena with China being most critical as reported in bbc.com dated 13th of June 2012.
A total of 21 countries were surveyed and in China, the rating has sort of nose-dived from 57% to 27% as revealed by the Global Attitude Project.
Other countries who have not taken kindly to the foreign policies of Obama are Japan, a long-term ally and neighbour Mexico.
And – the drone strikes specifically authorized by the President and carried out by the US have met with disapproval.
Almost all the countries were opposed to such drone strikes by the US and the maintaining of the ‘kill list’ of militants.
However, the confidence in Barack Obama remains high among the allies of the US, especially the allies in Europe.
Another revelation is that majority countries in Germany, Britain, France and Spain have now begun to regard China as the world's leading economic power and not the US.
