Since 2020, some Americans’ views of China have become more negative while others became more positive, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center.
The survey was conducted on U.S. adults during a time of a highly-politicized pandemic and the spread of US-led misinformation on the disease’s place of origin.
“Some 79% of adults expressed an unfavorable opinion of China in 2020, 76% did so in 2021 and 82% did so in 2022,” the Pew report reads.
“While the overall share of adults with an unfavorable view of China remained relatively steady during this period, there were some notable shifts beneath the surface.”
Among the respondents, those in young adulthood were more likely to express positive views after 2020 than their older counterparts.
Among political affiliations, although nearly similar, Republicans are less likely than Democrats to express positive views of China.
