More popular abroad than at home

It’s hard not to get the impression that Barack Obama is far more popular abroad than he is in his own country when you look how his approval rating is tracking. The Gallup organisation has him back hovering about the 50% approval mark after jumping slightly after the President was awarded his Nobel Peace Prize.

That there is still some confidence that things will not get worse is provided by the figures at the Intrade prediction market where the probability is given as 65% that he will finish the year with an approval rating of 50% or more.
