A new study of global attitudes shows that Israel is the country with the second-highest positive opinions towards the United States, with only Poland ranked higher.
The report from the Pew Research Center reveals that among Israelis, 87% hold a favorable view of the United States, while 12% have a negative opinion. This compares to the survey’s high in Poland of 93%, the low in Hungary of 44% and the median of 59% overall across the 23 surveyed countries.
Other outlier countries with notably higher or lower levels of anti-Americanism included Australia at 52% and South Korea at 79%.
“Israel’s current view of the U.S. is the most positive since 2000,” Israel Nitzan, acting consul general at the Consulate General of Israel New York, tweeted of the survey.
