A recent Pew Research Center survey has shown that the majority of Americans see China as a greater threat to the United States than Russia. The poll, conducted in June this year, revealed that 62% of Americans view China as a major threat, while only 26% see Russia as a similar threat.
This is a significant shift from just a few years ago when most Americans viewed Russia as the biggest threat to the US. The change in perception can be attributed to several factors, including China's growing economic and military power, its assertiveness in the South China Sea, and concerns over Chinese intellectual property theft.
The poll conducted by the Pew Research Center found that Americans are increasingly concerned about China's growing influence in the world. Apart from its economic and military power, China's assertiveness in the South China Sea and its treatment of ethnic minorities in Xinjiang have contributed to this perception.
Another factor that has contributed to the view of China as a major threat is its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many Americans believe that China was not transparent enough in its reporting of the virus and that it did not do enough to contain its spread.
The survey also found that Republicans are more likely than Democrats to view China as a threat. 74% of Republicans see China as a major threat, compared to 52% of Democrats.
In conclusion, The Pew Research Center survey highlights the growing concern among Americans about China's growing influence in the world. The findings reflect a shift in the way Americans perceive global threats, with China now seen as a bigger threat than Russia. The survey also shows that political affiliation plays a role in how Americans view China, with Republicans more likely to see China as a major threat than Democrats. These perceptions are likely to shape US foreign policy towards China in the coming years.
