The world says the U.S. is doing pretty well when it comes to its leadership. At least for now.
According to a Gallup poll released Friday, the 132 countries surveyed landed on a 45 percent median approval rating of U.S. leadership. That's the same as it was the year before.
The U.S.' global image has been fairly strong since President Barack Obama first took office in 2009.
