Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project har igjen målt holdningene til USA verden over. Det er en svak oppmykning på gang. I Indonesia sa 38 prosent at de var positivt stemt, mot bare 15 prosent for to år siden. Tsunami-hjelpen ser ut til å ha hjulpet.

Men det ene landet som virkelig skiller seg ut er India der hele 71 prosent oppfatter USA positivt.

Some European countries are also viewing the U.S. more favourably again, after public opinion had turned against the United States following the invasion of Iraq.
U.S. favourability increased in Germany, France and Spain, but the majority of people there still look at the U.S. unfavourably.
People in Eastern Europe have a slightly better opinion of the U.S., with favourability scores of 52 per cent in Russia and 62 per cent in Poland.
In Canada and Britain, U.S. favourability declined but is still above 50 per cent. (dpa)
