Very interesting considering the opposition against the US from the Indian politicians and Indian MSM in general. The percentages are pretty interesting.

WASHINGTON: "The people of India deeply love you," Prime Minister Manmohan Singh famously -- or infamously -- told then US President George Bush in 2008. Apparently, the love affair extends to his successor Barack Obama too. Wait, strike that. India loves America, period....

The poll does not go into why American Presidents are so popular in India but the results broadly segue into the perception that US and India have by and large overcome the Cold War baggage in the last two decades. Huge number of Indian emigrants who have bumped up Indian population in the US from less than a million in 1990 to more than 3 million in 2010, consequently creating a large pro-American sentiment in urban India, could also be a factor.
