Trump Effect: “Americans’ Perceptions of U.S. World Image Best Since 2003”
Fifty-eight percent of Americans view the United States’ world image “very” or “somewhat” favorably, according to a new Gallup survey. This represents the highest number since 2003.
The current number is up from 55 percent last year, and independents played a huge role in the increase.
The increase in the overall figure is the result of an increase in the percentage of political independents saying the U.S. is rated favorably abroad, up eight percentage points, from 50% to 58%. Meanwhile, the views of Americans identifying as Republican or Democratic haven’t changed.
