Chinese Views of Americans Becoming Increasingly Negative

Only 39 percent of those polled said they would call the relationship with the U.S. co-operative, down from 68 percent in 2010


Chinese views on US-China relations have declined sharply in the last two years, a new study has found.

Only 39% of people said they would call the relationship co-operative, down from 68% in 2010, a Pew report said.

The number of people who described US-China ties as hostile was up to 26% from 8% two years earlier.

Many Chinese people, especially the young, urban and well-educated, said they admired elements of US soft power, such as science and technology.
