Pew: Public says America's world leadership has 'tumbled to 40-year low'Topics: Political News and commentaries
A new Pew Research Center poll finds that for the first time in nearly 40 years, a majority (53 percent) of Americans believe the United States is less important around the world and that it should mind its own business. This is, indeed, a stunning rejection of President Obama's foreign policy just four years after he received the Nobel Prize.
Worse: 70 percent said that the U.S. is respected less than in the past, almost matching the high reached under former President George W. Bush, whose foreign policy Obama pledged to reverse.
[...] By a 56 percent to 34 percent margin, more disapprove than approve of Obamaâ€™s handling of foreign policy. The public also disapproves of his handling of Syria, Iran, China and Afghanistan by wide margins.
And America will soon come to realize and then long remember that it was Obama, not Bush, that lost the Middle East to the Islamists.
