New research finds that many Americans still view the U.S. as less respected today than in the past.
The survey conducted by the Pew Research Center found that nearly two-thirds of U.S. adults or 68 percent of respondents reported to hold such views.
Among political beliefs, Republicans are more likely to hold the belief that the U.S. is less respected internationally than in the past.
Moreover, the Pew survey also showed that younger adults are also more likely to hold the belief that the U.S. is less respected internationally than in the past.
“Age plays a complicated role in the public’s attitudes about how respected the U.S. is now compared with the past. Adults ages 18 to 29 are more likely than those ages 65 and older to say the U.S. is less respected than in the past (76% vs. 67%),” the survey determined.
