Throwing Israel under the bus is paying off.
Via The Hill:
Arabs living in the Middle East have warmed to President Obama’s policies in recent years, according to a comprehensive survey released Wednesday by Zogby Research Services.
Zogby polled people living in seven Arab countries including Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Palestinian territories.
Since 2011, opinions of Obama’s policies have grown exponentially in Egypt (from 3 percent to 34 percent), in Jordan (from 3 percent to 25 percent) and in the UAE (from 8 percent to 38 percent).
Views of Obama in Saudi Arabia, Morocco and Lebanon have also increased between 7 and 24 percentage points.
Saudis, Emiratis and Egyptians gave the administration the highest scores, but ratings in each country remain well below 50 percent.
Those surveyed said the Obama administration has been the most effective in ending the U.S. presence in Iraq, after troops pulled out in 2011, and working to end Iran’s nuclear program.
