Graphic Truth: China's Image Takes a Hit

China's leaders are intent on making the country into a global power these days, but as Beijing advances on the world stage, its image has taken a hit in many countries. A recent survey of around 35,000 people across 32 countries shows that majorities in most places agree that China's international clout is on the rise, but in half of countries surveyed from Western European the share of people who see China positively has dropped by double-digits over the past year. North America shows the most negative opinions of China on record, with less than 20 percent of people holding a positive view of the country. Meanwhile, majorities or pluralities in Middle Eastern, Latin American and sub-Saharan African countries recorded a favorable view of China. Here's a look at the numbers, by country, in 2018 vs 2019.
