Poll: Obama gets high marks for trip abroad

President Obama received some very high marks in a new poll as his first trip overseas comes to an end on Tuesday.

Nearly eight in 10 respondents said people in other countries will view the U.S. more positively after Obama's trip, in the CNN/Opinion Research poll released Monday. Less than two in 10 said they will view the country more negatively.

Sixteen percent said Obama accomplished a "great deal" on the trip and 45 percent said he accomplished a "fair amount."

"The American public seems to think that Obama's primary achievement on his trip so far was increasing goodwill rather than winning specific concessions from other countries," Keating Holland, CNN's polling director, said. "Obama seems to have made a good first impression on the world stage, and Americans appear to have noticed."
There was a margin of error of +/- 3 percent in the poll.
