United States most admired

A new poll shows that the US is now the most admired country in the world.  This survey was 20,000 strong from 20 different countries.

The United States jumped to the top from 7th last year.

“What’s really remarkable is that in all my years studying national reputation, I have never seen any country experience such a dramatic change in its standing as we see for the United States for 2009,” saidSimon Anholt.

He attributes the increase to President Obama’s popularity worldwide.

“There is no other explanation”.
