Obama Approval in Egypt Fell Drastically Since Cairo Speech

Anyone who got their worldview from the editorial pages of the New York Times would assume that Obama’s Cairo speech was a transformative event that repaired America’s image in the Middle East.
The reality however is drastically different.
Obama’s approval level in Egypt  in 2009 was at 42 percent. Not bad for the region or for the Muslim world. These days after the prolonged mess that his democracy initiative put Egypt through it’s at 26 percent.
That’s nearly as bad as Jordan, also known as the real Palestine whose population really hates the United States. While Obama’s approval only fell by 9 percent in Lebanon, it fell by twice that much in Egypt as Obama aided the Muslim Brotherhood while alienating mainstream Egyptians.
Aside from Pakistan and the two Palestines, Egypt is now the country that likes Obama the least.
