Throughout his time in office, US President Barack Obama wanted to see Palestinians and Israelis come together in agreement on a peace deal. Instead, the leader of the free world may be disappointed to realize that the two sides did indeed come together – in their disapproval of his job performance. According to a new poll by WIN/Gallup International
, while Obama is the world leader that is most admired throughout the globe, his favorability rating drops precipitously in Middle Eastern countries including Israel, the Palestinian territories, Iran, Lebanon, and Turkey.
The poll indicates that Obama is viewed most favorably in Kosovo, Vietnam, Portugal, Sweden, and Colombia.
