    President Obama's 2008 campaign pledge to improve the image of the United States around the world hasn't worked in Russia where a decade low of just 1 percent approve of American leadership, according to Gallup.

    In fact, Gallup said that Russia's view of the U.S. is the lowest in the world and comes at a time when Moscow is flexing its military muscle in hotspots like Syria where Obama is struggling to use force.

    It hasn't worked anywhere that matters.

    Globally, the government approval rating from when George W Bush was last in office in 2008 at 34%, went to 49% in 2009, 47% in 2010, 46%in 2011, 41% in 2012, 46% in 2013, and 45% in 2014. (From US Global Leadership Report)

    So regardless of what Russia shows now, Russia is rarely ever peachy about the US government. But the rest of the world does view our government more favorably since Obama took office.
