According to USA Today, a new Gallup poll released on February 20th shows that China has replaced Iran as the number one enemy in the eyes of the American public.
According to the polls, in the past few years, 20% of US respondents regarded China as the largest enemy, 16% considered Iran, 9% felt Russia, 7% considered Iraq, and 16% The interviewer said that it is North Korea, 5% think it is Afghanistan, and 3% think it is Syria.
Polls show that 52% of Americans believe that China’s economic rise poses a threat to US key interests in the next 10 years; 46% of Americans believe that China’s military rise poses a threat to US key interests .
The poll also shows that since 2006, Iran has ceased to be the number one enemy of the United States for the first time. Eight years ago, 31% of respondents thought that Iran was the number one enemy of the United States, and today it is only 16%. This change has been mainly due to changes in Iranian leaders and agreements between Iran and the West on nuclear programs.
At the same time, due to confrontation with the West on nuclear weapons projects, North Korea’s sense of hatred in the hearts of Americans has risen sharply in the past two years.
