7 in 10 Americans think favourably of India
(What happened to the other three?)
This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.
Ajay Shah links to a Gallup poll that reveals that India is the fifth most favoured nation among Americans. 69% of respondents rated India favourably. Americans, it seems, reciprocate the love.
Interestingly, overall, 55% of Americans rate China unfavourably. Interestingly, a young Americans are favourably disposed towards the country (60%) while Republicans and older Americans are not (~35%). So it’ll be interesting to see if China becomes more popular over time, or Americans will change their minds once they lose their innocence.
