Views of the US

Richard Wike and colleagues at Pew:
Views of the U.S. are generally positive across 33 countries surveyed in 2019, as a median of 54% say they have a favorable opinion of the U.S., compared with 38% who have an unfavorable view. Ratings are particularly positive in Poland, the Philippines, South Korea and Israel – in each about eight-in-ten say they view the U.S. favorably. However, in Germany, Russia, Turkey and Mexico, a majority of people say that they have a negative view of the U.S.
Across the 14 European countries surveyed, views of the U.S. are generally positive (a median of 54% favorable vs. 40% unfavorable). However, the extent to which publics view the U.S. favorably ranges considerably in Europe, from 79% in Poland to 39% in Germany expressing a positive view.
