America’s favorite countries
Canada apparently is the country Americans like the most, according to a recent survey conducted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
The survey also listed other countries that Americans like and dislike.
Since 1974, the Chicago Council survey has asked respondents to rate their feelings for other countries — with 1 being the coldest and 100 being the coziest.
When Americans were asked to rate their favourite nations, the cold country to the north received the warmest welcome.
Canada scored 79% in the survey, while the United Kingdom stood at No.2 with 74%. Germany, Japan and France all scored in the 60s, rounding out the top five.
Other countries Americans see as friendly included Israel, Brazil, South Korea and Taiwan. Mexico, the country sits on the south of the border of the U.S., stood comfortably at No.8 on the rankings, with 54%.
Russia, Iraq, Iran, North Korea and the Palestinian authority ranked as the bottom 5 of this global list.
The survey asked a sample of 2,108 people to rank a list of 25 countries on a scale from zero to 100.
The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, founded in 1922, is an independent, non-partisan organization.
