Countries around the world that hailed Barack Obama when he first took office in 2009 are no longer so keen about the president, a new survey finds.

A Pew Research survey of 21 countries shows that global confidence in and attitudes toward the United States have slipped since Obama moved into the White House.

The biggest drop in approval of Obama’s foreign policies occurred in China, where it plummeted from 57 percent in 2009 to 27 percent now, the Global Attitudes Project survey revealed.

The survey found Europeans still remain largely confident in Obama, albeit somewhat less so than in 2009. In Muslim countries, however, the public remains highly critical of Obama, In Japan, confidence in Oabma’s policies dropped from 77 percent in 2009 to 58 percent today,

In nearly all countries, more than half the public disapproves of the Obama administration’s use of unmanned drones to take out terror suspects.
