” Nearly half of American voters — 48 percent — think the United States is less respected around the world today than it was five years ago. That’s up from 37 percent who felt that way last year, according to a Fox News poll.
The new poll, released Monday, finds 14 percent of voters think the U.S. is more respected today — nearly five years into the Obama presidency — and 36 percent say it’s unchanged.
Among Democrats, 25 percent say the U.S. is more respected around the world today. That’s a 27 percentage-point drop from 52 percent last year. Twenty-seven percent of Democrats say the U.S. is less respected, up from 11 percent.”
