May 7, 2007 - American Men Warmer Than Women To Other Nations, Quinnipiac University Global Thermometer Finds; Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Israel Have Biggest Gender Gap

Word format

There is a gender gap in how Americans view the rest of the world and it is men who are more positive than women about foreign countries, especially Iraq, Israel and Saudi Arabia, according to a Quinnipiac University Global Thermometer survey released today.

The Global Thermometer, which measures how friendly voters feel countries are towards the United States, on a scale of 0 - 100, found that men had a more positive view than women of 12 of the 18 nations and governmental organizations tested by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University poll. Five of the six that get a more positive rating from women than men are nations with which the United States has strained relations - Venezuela, the Palestinian Government, Syria, Cuba and North Korea.

"The gender gap has been part of American politics for decades, but this split is interesting because women are disproportionately Democratic, and in this survey Democrats are more positive than Republicans about these countries overall," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. "While men have a more positive view of 12 of these 18 countries, Democrats have a more positive view than Republicans of 11 of them."

Overall, Americans see England, Canada and Israel most favorably and Iran, North Korea and Cuba least favorably.

Women give all 18 countries tested a mean rating of 42.9 compared to men's rating of 45.5 for them.

The countries and their mean ratings, plus mean ratings from men and women:

1) England - 80.4: 82 (m) 78.9 (w)

2) Canada - 76.2: 77.3 (m) 75.2 (w)

3) Israel - 66.7: 72.1 (m) 61.3 (w)

4) Germany - 61.2: 63.6 (m) 58.6 (w)

5) India - 57.9: 59.8 (m) 55.7 (w)

6) Mexico - 56.9: 57.2 (m) 56.5 (w)

7) United Nations - 51.5: 50.1 (m) 53 (w)

8) France - 49: 50.6 (m) 47.5 (w)

9) Russia - 47.7: 49.7 (m) 45.8 (w)

10) China - 44.5: 46.9 (m) 42.1 (w)

11) Saudi Arabia - 42.6: 47.6 (m) 37.4 (w)

12) Venezuela - 31.2: 28.7 (m) 34.4 (w)

13) Iraq - 26.1: 32.3 (m) 20.4 (w)

14) Syria - 25.4: 24.7 (m) 26.3 (w)

15) Palestinian Gov't. - 24.4: 24.1 (m) 24.6 (w)

16) Cuba - 23: 23 (m) 23.1 (w)

17) North Korea - 16.7: 15.7 (m) 17.7 (w)

18) Iran - 14.7: 14.8 (m) 14.6 (w)

"The largest gap between the views of men and women comes regarding Israel, Saudi Arabia and Iraq," Brown said. "One might expect that the violence associated with the Iraq War and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict might explain the divergent views on those countries and the Saudi treatment of women would explain that one," said Brown.

From April 25 - May 1 Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,166 American voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.9 percent.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts public opinion surveys in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio and nationwide as a public service and for research.

47. 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 1 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 ...
