Description

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Approval of U.S. leadership nearly tripled among Australians and New Zealanders between 2008 and 2010. Approval jumped from 25% to 69% in Australia and from 22% to 65% in New Zealand. The 44- and 43-percentage point increases are two of the highest jumps Gallup has measured worldwide pre- and post-Obama. These 2010 findings add to a trend Gallup documented from 2008 to 2009 where approval of U.S. leadership increased in many countries following the transfer of power from President George W. Bush to President Barack Obama. The relatively low approval ratings of U.S. leadership between 2005 and 2008 in Australia are consistent with a 2007 study conducted by U.S. Studies Center at University of Sydney, which found that 28% of Australians had a favorable opinion of Bush.
