More Say Trump Will Hurt Respect For U.S. In The World
Will the rest of the world respect us more four years from now (after the four year term of Donald Trump)? A large plurality of Americans (46%) say NO, while only 28% say yes. The public thinks it is far more likely that Trump will damage the world's respect for the United States by a whopping 18 point margin.
And that view is shared by both sexes, all racial/ethnic groups, three out of four age groups, and two out of three political groups. Only those 65 and older (43% to 39%) and Republicans (65% to 14%) think Trump will enhance the reputation of this country in the next four years.
These numbers are from a new Economist / YouGov Poll -- done between February 12th and 14th of a random national sample of 1,500 adults (including 1,283 registered voters, with a 3.1 point margin of error.
The chart below, from that same poll, shows Trump's job approval rating is still upside-down.
