Obama's Foreign Policy


When President Barack Obama entered office, his marks on handling foreign policy were high. The public applauded the president’s decisions to draw down troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. But today Americans are critical of the job he is doing. A new poll of registered voters by Fox News finds that only 32 percent, an all-time low in Fox’s polling, approve of the way the president is handling foreign policy. A new CBS News/New York Times poll of adults revealed that 37 percent supported the way he is handling the situation in Iraq. Two-thirds say the president hasn’t explained his goals there.
