World likes U.S. more because of Obama

New polling data indicates that the world's view of America has drastically improved since President Obama took office. Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan organization, conducted the poll.
"Positive opinions about the United States have returned to higher levels not seen since before President George W. Bush took office in 2001. The Bush presidency marked a steep decline in U.S. popularity overseas, notably after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, because of a perception that the post-9/11 war on terrorism was targeted at Muslims."
