Lots of fun charts here:

http://www.pewglobal.org/2012/06/13/chapter-1-views-of-the-u-s-and-american-foreign-policy-4/

For example:



Hillary Clinton may be more popular than Obama in the USA, but not in the rest of the world:





People in rich countries want Obama to be reelected:



A lot of folks in the Muslim world don't like the American people:

The irony that the countries that don't want Obama re-elected will get something worse in Mitt Romney.

Greece is by far the most interesting country in this poll.

Interesting that Russia is not particularly anti-American, and a plurality of Mexicans don't want Obama re-elected...

Wasn't expecting the French to be so pro-American.

Their numbers show France as having the largest net upswing in favorable opinion of the US since the early Iraq War years:

That might have something to do with (1) the fact that Obama has had one of the toughest border security policies in recent times and (2) the fact that Obama has tried to get involved in the drug wars in Mexico.

Yeah.  And I wouldn't have expected the Greeks to dislike us so much too.  I wonder how they'd respond if they were asked for their opinion on the German people.  I've gotta say, it's kind of an ouch that the American people are disliked so profoundly in the Muslim world and not just the American government.  But I guess we sort of deserve it.  We are a pretty stupid, militaristic, and pig-headedly conservative people.  Sorry if I offended any conservatives (especially American ones) on this board by writing that.

The Greeks seem to have a low opinion of everyone else in the Western world at the moment.  The poll also shows them with unfavorable views of the EU, NATO, and even the UN.  Interestingly, though, they have a higher opinion of both China and Russia than other European countries:

Geez, the Greeks just hate everybody don't they? I notice that they are more then 5 times more confident in the leadership of Vladimir Putin then they are in that of Angela Merkel. Also, its funny to see that the hideous caricature of politics in the US is still alive and well in Europe.

Is this the same Obama that tried to pass the DREAM act and is sabotaging efforts of the states to combat illegal immigration?

Yes, one and the same.  Funny how that works.
