The nation, for the most part, says President Obama does not appear to be too fond of military aggression. Anti-war positions have defined him as a candidate from early in his career as a national politician, though there's some signs there's some change afoot.
"His use of unmanned drones and support for intervention in Libya, for instance, have earned criticisms from anti-war campaigners on the left and right. At the same time, the administration's decision not to do more about crises in Syria or Ukraine have led to accusations of weakness," Mr. Jordan says.
"Anti-war positions have defined Barack Obama as a candidate from early in his career as a national politician. His opposition to the Iraq war allowed him to take on the mantle of the anti-war left during the 2008 Democratic primary against Hillary Clinton as well as the subsequent presidential campaign," says William Jordan, an analyst with YouGov, which conducted a survey about American impressions of the president.
