US President Barack Obama's ratings have plunged at home but he remains
highly popular in Europe, with 75 percent in 12 EU nations

approving his handling of global affairs, a poll said Wednesday.

He is also much better liked than his predecessor George W. Bush, whose rating
in Europe was just 20 percent in 2008, said the Transatlantic Trends poll by the
German Marshall Fund.


Why does the EU love Obama so much more than the US?

I think they love anyone who attempts to turn America into Europe. The whole idea is just very appealing to them for some reason.

You have to agree Obama is a very like-able man. He just has this charm about him though.

Even though he is inexperienced and has very very very bad advisers. He is still like-able but only my opinion

GWB wasn't their president either but they didn't seem to fall in love with him as they did with Obama.
