MOSCOW, December 23. /TASS/. Most of Russian citizens (81%) have a negative attitude towards US President Barack Obama, the Russian Public Opinion Research Center (WCIOM) said on Tuesday.
Less than 5% of Russians assess him positively, WCIOM said.
Over the last four years, the attitude toward the American leader has changed drastically: in 2010, 56% of Russians had a positive attitude towards Obama and only 8% assessed him negatively.
Russian citizens dislike Obama because he pursues the anti-Russian policy (22% of respondents) and initiates wars all around the world (18%). Five percent of Russians believe that Obama pursues foreign policy that has negative effects. Five percent of respondents said they simply dislike him.
Three fourth of Russians (76%) said Obama did not deserve the Nobel Peace Prize. Only five percent of respondents said the award was fair.
The survey was conducted among 1,600 people in 46 Russian regions on November 22-23. The margin of error does not exceed 3.5%.
