Crisis in the Middle East

A large share of Americans (43 percent) have been following the news about recent attacks on embassies in Libya and Egypt and the killing of an American ambassador, making it the most closely followed foreign news story this year, according to a Pew poll released Sept. 17. Forty-five percent of people approve of President Obama's response, compared to 26 percent who approved of Mitt Romney's comments.
