Donald Trump just scored horribly again in a new Gallup poll that reveals that only 29% of US adults think leaders of other countries respect the President.
This is a category where President George W. Bush scored about 49%, while President Barrack Obama had a score of 67%.
This is the first time in ten years that the number of Americans who believe the world views the US favorably has been below 50%.
According to Business Insider, “the last time Americans’ unfavorability rating of their nation was so high was in 2007, when Bush was mired in unpopular wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the economy was on the brink of collapse.”
The phone survey included a random sample of 1,035 US adults, whom Gallup interviewed from February 1-5.
“[Americans’ low confidence in Trump’s world standing] has been fueled by a sharp decline among Democrats who hold highly negative views of Trump’s character and opening job performance,” Art Swift writes for Gallup. “But even a year ago, when Americans thought the world viewed the US and Obama positively, Americans were still largely unsatisfied with the nation’s global standing. This trend has been steadily negative for the past decade.”
