Eighty-eight percent of Germans approve of U.S. President Barack Obama's foreign
policy, data collected by the Pew Research Center indicates.
Pew said polling for its 2013 Spring Global Attitudes Survey revealed Germany remains one country where some vestiges of the old "Obamamania" from 2008 still endure.
The U.S. president receives high marks for his handling of global economic problems, removing combat forces from Iraq and his administration's anti-terrorism policies, Pew said.
However, Obama has disappointed the German public somewhat on issues like climate change and multilateralism.
Obama's presidency has seen U.S. favorability in Germany jump from 31 percent in 2008 to 53 percent today.
The telephone survey of German attitudes was conducted March 4-18 among 1,025 adults 18 years or older. It carries of margin of error of 4.1 percentage points.
