Opinons on America, Obama, Sour in Arab World

So much for turning the corner


US President Barack Obama's speech in Cairo in June 2009 was seen as a potential start of a new chapter in relations between America and the Arab world.

But a new survey carried out by international polling firm YouGov in August shows that America today is deeply unpopular in the region; the number of respondents in the Middle East and North Africa who said they don't trust America was more than double the number of respondents who said they do. 39% of those polled said they do not trust the US at all.
