U.S. Leadership Approval Rebounds, Allies Say ‘America Is Back’ Thanks To President Biden

As President Biden makes his second foreign trip of his presidency, recent polling reveals global approval of U.S. leadership has rebounded after it hit a low under Trump. American allies agree that President Biden is restoring our credibility and leadership on the world stage. Thanks to President Biden’s leadership, America is back. 

According to a recent Gallup poll, global approval of U.S. leadership substantially rebounded during the first six months of President Biden’s administration. 

Gallup: “A new Gallup report shows that as of early August 2021, across 46 countries and territories, median approval of U.S. leadership stood at 49%. This rating is up from the 30% median approval at the end of Donald Trump’s presidency and matches the rating during former President Barack Obama’s first year in office in 2009.”

Gallup: “Approval ratings of U.S. leadership increased substantially — by 10 percentage points or more — between 2020 and 2021 in 36 of the 46 countries and territories surveyed through the first half of the year.”

Here’s what leaders and senior officials from our allies are saying:

Latvian President Egils Levits: “It is undeniable that America is back.”

South Korean Foreign Minister Chung Eui-yong: “If you look at the records of his past statements regarding the Korean Peninsula, he’s been a very reasonable guy as to how we can resolve the Korea issue peacefully.”

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen: “I think it’s important to say, given the discussions now taking place in Europe, that I experience Biden as very loyal to the transatlantic alliance.”

Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen: “America, she said, was moving ‘to once again take on the role of world leadership, a role only the United States can take on.’”
