40% for me - I was doing some major guessing!

40% for me too.

RE: Opinions polls foreign countries on the US

Well, I sort of got geared up by the posts here that I should make some wildly improbable guesses to score highly.

That strategy apparently lacked merit, as I only scored a 30%.

100% here; no lie. I was being wise-guy cynical. Nothing to lose, right?


 o
RE: Opinions polls foreign countries on the US

I got 60%.

I guessed; only two I was confident of my answer.

I was thinking they were sort of trick questions, maybe that's why I missed most of them, or maybe I have a very poor sense of world attitudes re:USA or maybe these questions are highly arbitrary and it's unlikely to select the correct one of 4 random bits of statistical data.

david52, 30%.
I must remember to take the USA down from its pedestal a level or two.

Its admittedly arbitrary, but its worth keeping in mind that nobody supports the use of drones, what the world admires about us is science and technology - although that seems to conflict with the drones - and that there isn't a whole lot of support in many places we might think we have it, given the money we pour into Egypt and Pakistan.

RE: Opinions polls foreign countries on the US

I got 70% right, which surprised me. Like Elvis, I was cynical. Not cynical enough, though.

30 here, a surprise and let-down. I'll have to stop watching FOX News all the time.

RE: Opinions polls foreign countries on the US

I made the mistake of assuming that, because I am foreign, my own views would be representative.

I got 1 right :)

...and I'm not admitting which one.

Best wishes

I admit that I had no problem selecting the correct answer as to which country most admires the U.S. -- too many parenti here to think otherwise -- and which country least admires the U.S. -- Incoming!

I didn't know the Italians were so pro-America. Apparently I over-estimated Mexico's dislike of us.

90%.........included three lucky guesses

Maybe all the Italian restaurants here are paying a percentage to the mother country.

Mexico is afraid there's going to be another ice age and we're all going to move down there.

Strutting around the house today. I got 60% which I thought was not so good until husband got 20%.


 o
RE: Opinions polls foreign countries on the US

40% - Would it be cheating to try again, now that I know the correct answers? :)
