    Default US Views Of China Growing Increasingly Unfavorable

    US Views Of China Growing Increasingly Unfavorable

    The Pew Research Center has released a new poll showing that U.S. public views of China have becoming increasingly unfavorable amid the ongoing trade war and continued geopolitical tensions in the South China Sea. Statista's Niall McCarthy details that the poll comes as the Trump administration decided to backtrack on imposing new tariffs on a range of high-profile Chinese imports with some describing the move as a temporary ceasefire in the bitter trade war between the two nations.
    The research found that 47 percent of Americans had an unfavorable view of China in 2018 and that rose to 60 percent by spring 2019.

    That's the highest level ever recorded by Pew in the 14 years since they first asked the question. The lowest level was recorded back in 2006 when the share finding China unfavorable was just 29 percent. The polling also found that just under a quarter of Americans (24 percent) consider China a threat. That's up on 2014 and 2007 when the share was 19 percent and 12 percent respectively.
    In terms of political affiliation, a majority of Democrats and Republicans view China in an unfavorable light. Negative views are more pronounced among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents, 51 percent of whom held an unfavorable view in 2018. This year, that climbed dramatically to 70 percent. Unfavorability has also soared among Democrats, climbing from 49 percent in 2018 to 59 percent in 2019.

    Heard an expert financial guy call in to a local talk show today. The guy was better than anyone I've ever heard on national media about the latest China/US trade war. He spent 15 minutes explaining why the headlines of doom and gloom for the economy are pure BS. Trump has played 3D chess with the Chinese and the explanation of the bond market abnormality is a really good thing for us if we do not panic and try to not buy crap from China for the next 2 months. To much to explain here, but Trump's team is light years ahead of what previous administrations did. The MSM is dissing this current trend as a bad move. Total opposite is the truth.

    I think our economy is locked in a death embrace with China. If we withdraw purchasing Chinese products ... their economy collapses. If they stop buying our debt or worse, sell it for pennies on the dollar, then the dollar crashes and OUR economy crashes.

    We got in bed with a Communist government who let their people be used as slave labor for every foreign, multinational in the world. No good is going to come of it.

    Trump may just be bluffing to get a more favorable deal with the Chinese. He's known to do that. But the damage here is decades old and he's neither capable of undoing it or capable of fixing it. When the two systems do untangle, there will be a period of pain. But at the end of it, plants re-open, prices stabilize, jobs come back, etc.

    It's a pain worth going through. Like quitting smoking in order to be able to afford some new fishing equipment.

    Twelve hours ago I agreed with your take 100% Miradus. It has to do with the Dollar being international trade currency. I can not explain what this guy said, but Argentina, Brazil, India the UK and other countries are in the mix. China is in big trouble right now. We could come out of this smelling like a rose and comparatively speaking drastically reducing our national debt. We have the potential to become a greater powerhouse than ever. Economically, that is.

    It sounds like you are saying you don't agree with me now. :)

    I'd like to know how we could pull out of it without damage to ourselves. It's possible there's plenty of economists out there who have good solid plans I'm just unaware of.

    I have a Walmart-perspective when it comes to economics. My worldview of what's available in terms of resources to the consumer are Walmart and Amazon. Very limited.

    One little problem everybody is countries are dumping dollars.

    The only thing holding up the dollar is the IMF, and Central banks around the world being used by the US FED to make it look like they (foreign) are buying US dollars and debt.

    A bank in Hong Kong got in trouble a couple years ago, when board officials found out they were being used by the US FED as a go between to buy US debt.

    The bank president told the board that the US was supplying the money to buy the debt and no money from the bank was being used, to make it look Hong Kong was investing in the USA.

    So no doubt the US FED is doing the same thing with other banks. To give the ILLUSION foreign investments are coming in.

    I'ts a world wide ponzi scheme mixed with duck duck goose........who knows who's gonna be standing at the end.
    Educate others to grow our base of informed citizens, it's tyranny. Spread the Gospel.

    Prepare wisely individually. An army runs on it's stomach.

    Network with those who prepare wisely and take advantage of the strength in numbers and the economy of scale.

    Then, when the curtains come down and the truth is evident to an informed citizenry, we unite and fight the new world order.

    Because government propaganda tends to be very effective at whipping up nationalist fervor and hostility toward "the other." Chinese public views of the US have also become increasingly unfavorable over the same period--and for the same reason. Both countries have legitimate grievances against the other, but it's unfortunate that both are trying to "weaponize" their respective public sentiments to increase tension.
