Original title: The latest poll: The reputation of the United States has been damaged due to the handling of the epidemic, and there is no “Biden rebound” in the hearts of the French and German people
[Global Network Report]”Polls show that the image of the United States in France and Germany has not shown a’Biden rebound'”. Reuters reported on the 7th that a recent poll released on the 7th local time showed that because Washington’s handling of the new crown epidemic has damaged the reputation of the United States as a “leading global power” in France and Germany. In France and Germany, people’s views on the United States did not rebound after the Biden administration took office for three months.
According to reports, on the eve of Biden’s European trip, the German Marshall Foundation and the German Bertelsmann Foundation released a poll. The poll was conducted online from March 29 to April 13 and surveyed 1,000 adults in 11 countries including France, Germany, and Italy.
The survey results show that only 51% of German respondents consider the United States to be a reliable partner, compared with 60% in France, 64% in Spain, 67% in the UK, and less than 25% in Turkey. The poll mentioned that in the eyes of most American respondents, the EU is seen as a reliable partner.
However, the report stated that, with the exception of the respondents in Sweden and Turkey, most of the interviewees still believe that the United States should participate in European defense and security affairs.
In addition, polls show that “the first three months of the Biden administration did not affect France and Germany’s views on the global influence of the United States, because these numbers are consistent with the results of the investigation in the late 2020 outbreak period, (and) this is better than that. The number before the epidemic dropped by about 10%.”
Biden will start his first foreign visit after taking office this week, going to Europe to participate in the Group of Seven (G7) summit, NATO summit, U.S.-Europe summit and U.S.-Russia summit. For the US government, which regards pulling allies and engaging in small circles as its diplomatic philosophy, this time is obviously very important. Biden published a signed article in the “Washington Post” on the 6th, explaining the purpose of this trip to unite democratic countries, contain “new age threats,” and demonstrate US leadership. In Biden’s article, China and Russia are the countries to be named to deal with. Among them, China is mentioned three times. With so much thought, can the United States do what it wants? According to the analysis of the US and European media, Europe’s worries are no less than Biden’s confidence.
There are not only differences but also rifts between Europe and the United States. Not long ago, the media broke the startling scandal of the United States monitoring its European allies. According to Political News Network, European allies are regarded by Biden as an important part of the anti-China alliance, but they are no longer at the core. The Prime Minister of Japan and the President of South Korea were the first foreign leaders to visit the White House during Biden’s tenure. The New York Times said that Germany is dissatisfied with the unilateral withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan, and believes that this is the old model of European-American relations-Washington makes the decision, followed by allies. Similarly, Biden’s support for the abandonment of intellectual property rights for the new crown vaccine also made European leaders angry and embarrassed.
