A comparison of 2008 to 2010 offers a view of the initial Obama bump, while 2010 to 2013 shows the decline in Europe. (Slide over the individual countries to see the hard data.) One can even see that Pakistan preferred the U.S. of 2005 to the U.S. of the present. Like at home, Obama appears to suffer from the animosity born of high expectations.
