Pollster Andrew Kohut, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and former Senator John Danforth sit down for a conversation with attendees of The Monitor Breakfast about the Global Attitudes Project's 2010 survey.
The survey is based on some 25,000 interviews conducted in 22 nations. It examines attitudes toward the United States, including confidence in President Obama and views of American foreign policy, among a wide variety of other issues.
Madeleine K. Albright is Chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, and Chair of Albright Capital Management, an affiliated investment advisory firm focused on emerging markets.
She was the 64th Secretary of State of the United States. In 2012, Dr. Albright received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian honor, from President Obama.
John Claggett Danforth is a former United States Ambassador to the United Nations and former Republican United States Senator from Missouri.
Andrew Kohut is an American pollster. Kohut currently serves as the president of Pew Research Center and director of two of Pew's sub-projects: Pew Research Center for the People and the Press and Pew Global Attitudes Project.
Kohut is a regular guest on National Public Radio and television news programs such as the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, where he presents Pew's poll results and analysis.
Former Senator John Danforth discusses a newly released Pew Global Attitudes poll showing President Obama has retained his global popularity, though his numbers dip dramatically as the issues become more concrete.
"My reading of these numbers is that while President Obama retains much personal popularity," says Danforth, "world opinion likes the idea of Obama, more than the reality of Obama."
