February 26, 2007 - Americans Warm Slightly To North Korea, Quinnipiac University Global Thermometer Finds; Iran Drops To The Coldest Place On List Of Nations
A tentative nuclear arms deal with North Korea and the lack of one with Iran apparently has changed American voters' view of what foreign nations they consider the least friendly to the United States, according to a Quinnipiac University Global Thermometer survey released today.

The Global Thermometer, which measures the warmth of American voters' feelings toward a list of foreign nations, on a scale of 0 - 100, found that North Korea slightly improved its standing among Americans since a November 30 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll. Iran slipped a bit during the period and now is at the bottom, in the eyes of the American people.

England, Canada and Israel remain America's three best friends.

Russia, whose President Vladimir Putin has been more critical of the United States recently, also saw a drop in its rating, part of a general disenchantment with the former super rival over the past year. And Mexico's rating rose, perhaps reflecting less focus during the period on U.S.-Mexican immigration woes.

"Although the change is small, North Korea has climbed out of the basement in the eyes of Americans and Iran has fallen a bit. It would be reasonable to conclude this is a result of Iran's continuing refusal to halt its nuclear program and the tentative deal with North Korea to do so," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"Regardless of the movement, it is clear that Americans view Iran and North Korea as the least friendly nations to the United States," Brown added.

"Over the past year, as Putin has sounded less like Gorbachev and more like Brezhnev, Americans have begun to sour a bit on the notion of Russia as a new friend.

"Americans' view of Mexico increased the most over the past three months, perhaps because the issue of illegal immigration has been less of a controversial issue in recent months."

The first time Quinnipiac began doing these quarterly Global Thermometer surveys, in March of 2006, Russia's score was 47.1.

The nations and the mean score of the warmth of American voters' attitudes, and in parentheses the mean score from November 30 are:


1) England - 77.9 (78.9)

2) Canada - 75.4 (73.4)

3) Israel - 66.5 (68.2)

4) Germany - 59.9 (58.1)

5) India - 56.1 (56.6)

6) Mexico - 56.1 (51.4)

7) United Nations - 49.9 (50.4)

8) France - 47.7 (44.6)

9) China - 43.3 (44.2)

10) Russia - 43.1 (46.2)

11) Saudi Arabia - 40.1 (40.4)

12) Venezuela - 30.3 (30.9)

13) Iraq - 27.1 (25.9)

14) Palestinian Gov't - 24.3 (23.8)

15) Syria - 23.8 (24.3)

16) Cuba - 21.8 (24.1)

17) North Korea - 15.7 (13.5)

18) Iran - 13.5 (15.5)

From February 13 - 19 Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,536 American voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percent.

Now I'd like to get your feelings about some countries and governing organizations who have been in the news and what sort of a relationship you feel they have with the United States.
I'll read the name of a country or governing organization and I'd like you to rate how much of a friend or foe they are to the U.S. using the feeling thermometer.
You can choose any number between 0 and 100. The higher the number, the warmer or more friendly you feel they are to the U.S. The lower the number, the colder or less friendly they are.
If we come to a country or governing organization who you haven't heard enough about to form an opinion, you don't need to rate them. Just tell me and we'll move on to the next one ...
