    Muslims and Obama: Support has slipped for president - latimes.com

    Muslims around the world less approving of Obama
    A poll of global attitudes finds support strong in most nations, but approval has dipped in Muslim countries, due in part to Obama's handling of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Detractors also take a dim view of U.S. international decisions.

    Reporting from Washington —
    Confidence in President Obama among the world's Muslims is slipping, according to a poll of global attitudes that also found widespread concern that the United States remained a go-it-alone nation even under the new administration.

    The survey, by the Pew Research Center's Global Attitudes Project, found support for Obama had remained strong in most nations even while his approval rating at home had slipped. But in five of seven Muslim nations that were polled, he was regarded with approval by about one-third or less of respondents, and his popularity had slid over the last year.

    The finding is likely to be of concern to the White House, which has worked hard to improve the American image abroad, particularly in the Muslim world.

    You'd think the only concern would be, "How do AMERICANS view the president", but man, I guess that's naive.

    Looks like he's going to have to kiss ass a little harder and bow a little lower donut?
