Swedes don’t take too kindly to Americans, 51% to be exact. The reasons, however, are a little more complicated than you think. Sweden fears that the U.S fetishizes them too much. Perhaps Sweden can’t take the pressure of being everyone’s idea of an idyllic liberal paradise.
While Sweden does look lovely, we are sure, like every nation, they have their flaws too.
People in Mexico are not very fond of their neighbors north of the border. Their issues go back as far as the 1800s when they were battling over territories. Mexico obviously still feels a sore over their loss of Texas. That certainly sheds some light on a 65% unfavorability rating.
Originally part of Mexico, the state was annexed by the United States in 1845. That was a pretty big win for the U.S, so it seems pretty reasonable that there has been animosity ever since.
Tajikistan has a 54% disapproval rating. Not great, but at least not as high as Mexico. The United States can, however, take comfort in the fact that this tiny country doesn't feel particularly favorable to many other countries.
Adding to the list of countries Tajikistan doesn't like, China and pretty much every nation in Europe aren't favorites of this Middle Eastern nation.
With a 60% disapproval rating, the relationship between Spain and America does not look great. The Spanish public view Americans as unadventurous. We can chalk it down to cultural differences.
People in the Mediterranean and have a very different way of life. People in that part of the world are extremely laid back.
Ties between America and China have witnessed their fair share of highs and lows. Over the past several years, it seems to have plateaued at 49%.
Trade between China and America will always be crucial, so let's see that number not go any higher. At least we can keep it business-friendly.
