Impressions change

Researchers said changing impressions of the other country reflect the changes in the bilateral relationship. According to the China Daily-Horizon survey, more than half of the respondents said the current China-US relationship is "bad" or "very bad".

In addition to US hegemony, its negative political and economic policies on China are also some of the top factors affecting Chinese citizens' impressions of the US, it showed.

In the China Daily-Gallup survey, Americans are almost evenly split on their overall view of China. Forty-two percent said they have a favorable opinion of China, 44 percent had an unfavorable view and 12 percent said they had neither a favorable nor an unfavorable opinion.

Certain groups were slightly more likely to have favorable views of China, such as African-Americans and Americans between the ages of 18 to 34, the survey found.
