Which Countries Are the Most Pro-American?

Back in 2007, then-candidate Barack Obama - writing in the pages of Foreign Affairs on America's role in the world - promised that "the American moment is not over," but that it "must be seized anew."

Nearly two years later, RealClearWorld has teamed with Gallup to find out how the president has done abroad.

Global Top 5s is a monthly feature by powered by Gallup's worldwide research. Learn more at
