Iranian Approval Of US Drops 5% Since Obama Was Elected

Posted by Casey on June 8, 2009

It’s close to the margin of error I mind you. However, best case scenario is that Obama has done nothing to make hostile nations like us. Worst case scenario is that he’s actually pissed them off more.

It’s bad enough that he continues to anger most of our allies, most notably Israel, but to accomplish nothing with our enemies is in a league of its own.

A rare poll of Iranians says that few of them have favorable opinions of the United States, a view that hasn’t changed much from before the election of President Barack Obama.The survey, taken last month, shows that 29 percent of Iranians view the U.S. positively. In February 2008, a similar poll of Iranians showed 34 percent with favorable views of the U.S.

But at the same time, support in both surveys remains strong for democratic institutions like free elections and a free press.

  1. I’m not sure what Obama’s done to make the situation any worse, but this poll (if any poll taken of citizens of a dictatorship can be believed) shows that he hasn’t helped, sure.

    But we need to ask ourselves: what hasn’t he helped with? President Obama has not been on a diplomatic mission to Iran. His ‘re-branding’ campaign is focused on other areas of the Middle East; and he quite rightly sees turning Iranian public opinion as a lost cause.

    What’s important is the answer to this question: does Mr. Obama realize that some countries simply can’t be negotiated with. Sure, it’s possible Iran is seeking nuclear power to help itself. I think it’s much more clear that the regime is buying time to acquire the ability to bomb whoever they can off the face of the earth.
