As Egypt’s neighbor, Jordan shares a similar sentiment towards America. In fact, since 2009, the unfavorability ratings have dropped 13 points leaving the current rating at 85%. These numbers, however, can maybe be a little skewed. There is a pretty big gap between the citizens and the government.
There is a sense that the public is rather at odds with the government’s opinion because aside from Israel, Jordan is one of America’s closest allies.
The relationship between Germany and The United States is rather complex, which is not surprising considering their sordid past. While Germans are eager to be viewed positively by Americans, there is still some lingering bad blood. With a 47% unfavorable rating, Germans tend to think that Americans are lazy and messy. Ouch, Germany.
It's hard to get on par with German perfectionism, so we suppose that they are alone there. They also take issue with their extreme sense of patriotism. Let's not forget that Germans were pretty darn nationalistic, too, just a few decades ago.
The big rift between Iran and The United States happened as far back as 1979, so the love between these two extremely different nations has been lost for quite some time. A big reason for the change of heart has a lot to do with Iran's political and cultural shift that has taken place over the years.
Iran has also been very quick to criticize America for any unrest it has been experiencing. Naturally, America doesn't take kindly to that, especially since Iran has also been unstable themselves.
The sentiment towards America has changed drastically in Turkey in the last few years. The country has since taken in a large number of Syrian refugees without much U.S assistance. This has contributed to a rating of 73%.
Yep. It's safe to say that the Turks feel a little annoyed at America right now.
Things have always been pretty iffy between Russia and The United States, and there are hoards of Hollywood movies to prove it. Probably every single action film during the 80s and 90s features some kind of slippery Russian spy, and of course, the American hero.
The Pew survey shows a 71% unfavorable rating. There was a moment in time in which it seemed like the winds of change have been blowing through, but alas, it seems that Russia and America were just never meant to be.
