A new opinion poll has found that most Pakistanis view the United States as an enemy and are opposed to the US-led war in Afghanistan.

The poll conducted by Pew Research Center suggests 65 percent of Pakistanis want US and NATO soldiers out of Afghanistan as soon as possible.

The image of the US is the lowest among 22 nations included in the survey that was conducted on two thousand Pakistanis.

Despite billions of dollars Islamabad receives from Washington in economic and military aid, only eight percent trust US President Barack Obama -- the lowest rating of the 22-nation survey -- the study shows.

The survey also shows that people in Pakistan are less concerned about the Taliban and al-Qaeda than in 2009.

The poll shows that US drone strikes remain deeply unpopular among Pakistani people.

The US army has extended the drone strikes in Pakistan during the last 18 months.

Some 50 of 146 strikes carried out in Pakistan since 2004 have occurred in 2010 alone that killed dozens of people, according to data released by the Washington-based New America Foundation
