US Image Improves in Canada Despite Differences over Economy, Afghanistan

Pew Global Attitudes Project
September 14
As in much of the world, America's image has bounced back in Canada according to a Pew Global Attitudes survey conducted in May and June of this year. Positive ratings for the United States have become more common, and President Barack Obama receives considerably higher marks than George W. Bush did when he was in the White House. Even so, as Obama prepares to meet with visiting Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, many Canadians say that the U.S. economy is having a negative impact on their country, and many disagree with Obama on one of his top foreign policy priorities: the war in Afghanistan.
