Poll: 73% of College Students Believe America Less Respected Under Obama

College students overwhelmingly believe America is losing respect in the world under the leadership of President Barack Obama.

A Panetta Institute survey found that “73 percent of college students believe that the United States is less respected by other countries than it was in the past.”

Obama campaigned on a promise to increase America’s respect around the world, but has been slammed for the death of four Americans in Benghazi and the subsequent attempts at a cover-up, his “red line” in Syria, “dithering” in the Middle East, and his “reset” policy with Russia that only allowed Putin’s Russia to increase its sphere of influence in Eastern Europe.

Hart Research Associates conducted the survey of 817 college students from April 11 to 19. The margin of error is +/- 3.5 percentage points for the overall sample.
