November 30, 2006 - Americans Have Warmer Feelings Toward The World, Quinnipiac University National Thermometer Finds; But Several Nations Still Get The Cold Shoulder
American voters have developed warmer feelings about several nations around the world, 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 the ratings for 13 nations increased since the August 28 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll. The view of one nation remained the same, and three - all nations commonly thought of as trouble spots for the United States - found that Americans had a chillier view of them.

England, Canada and Israel remained the nations generating the warmest feelings among Americans. Americans' warmth toward China, India and Israel grew the most.

Iran and North Korea remain at the bottom of the rankings. North Korea, Iraq and Venezuela were the nations whose ratings fell.

"Although the changes are in some cases quite small, the trend is unmistakable," said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"What we have found in the past is that, in general, Democrats give foreign nations higher ratings than do Republicans. The poll was taken after an election in which Democrats triumphed so perhaps that is what we are seeing."

"Israel's rating of 68.2 is a substantial increase since the last survey, and even more impressive when compared to its rating of 62.9 in the June poll, which was before its war with Hezbollah in Lebanon," said Brown.

The nations and the mean score of the warmth of American voters' attitudes, and in parentheses the mean score from August 28 are:



1) England - 78.9 (78.3)

2) Canada - 73.4 (71.7)

3) Israel - 68.2 (65.9)

4) Germany - 58.1 (first time included)

5) India - 56.6 (53.4)

6) Mexico - 51.4 (51.4)

7) United Nations - 50.4 (49.2)

8) Russia - 46.2 (45.5)

9) France - 44.6 (43.2)

10) China - 44.2 (39)

11) Saudi Arabia - 40.4 (38.2)

12) Venezuela - 30.9 (35.9)

13) Iraq - 25.9 (27.7)

14) Syria - 24.3 (21.7)

15) Palestinian Government - 23.8 (22.8)

16) Cuba - 24.1 (24)

17) Iran - 15.5 (13.9)

18) North Korea - 13.5 (15)

3. (INTRO TO Q3a-3r) 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. (na = not asked)
