US Election Tracker: China Bashing Helping Trump
(1 min read)
73% of Americans have an unfavourable view towards China, which is a sharp increase from earlier years (see Chart). Part of this is due to faulting China in its handling of COVID-19. It also helps explain, President Trump’s recent hard-line against China. It’s worth noting that the majority of US voters from either party bellieve the US should promote human rights in China even if it harms economic relations between the US and China. On TikTok specifically, Americans are split on banning it (one-third support, one-third oppose), however older people are more likely to support a ban.
