Study shows approval for president’s foreign policy has declined globally

A study shows approval for President Obama’s foreign policy has significantly declined around the globe. A survey conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project of 21 different countries reveals that support for the president’s international policies has dropped since taking office. The poll also found disapproval of American strategy in fighting the war on terrorism, with 17 of 21 countries surveyed saying they disagree with the use of drones in the Middle East. Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM’s Christina Lob spoke with University of South Florida Political Science Professor, Susan MacManus, on what these numbers mean for the upcoming presidential election.
