A new Gallup poll reveals Americans’ favorability rating for China has hit an all-time low of 20 percent and that Democrats are nearly three times more likely to hold a favorable view of the communist country than Republicans.
The early February poll shows that just 10 percent of Republicans, 22 percent of Independents, and 27 percent of Democrats have a “favorable opinion of China.”
The new numbers represent a marked downward shift of 13, 17, and eight points, respectively.
As a result, Americans’ overall favorability rating of the country – which perpetuates genocide against Uyghurs, targets the U.S. with information and economic warfare, and spawned and spread COVID-19 – hit an all-time low of 20 percent.
The statistic has been tracked since 1979 and follows a similarly rapid decline in August 1989 following the Chinese government’s crackdown on protestors in Tiananmen Square.
