World Loves Biden But Is Losing Faith in the U.S., Survey Says

President Joe Biden is popular across much of the world and expected to provide greater U.S. leadership on issues such as fighting Covid-19, terrorism and climate change, a new multi-nation survey shows. But trust is low both in the U.S. as a nation and Biden’s ability to deliver.

“We wanted to know: If there is a change of administration and if the U.S. is ready to lead again, will anyone follow?” said Michael Broening, Executive Director of the New York office of the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, the German think tank that commissioned the survey.

The answer from the survey’s 12,400 respondents in Brazil, France, Germany, Japan, Kenya, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, South Africa, Turkey and the U.S. itself: ‘Yes, but’.

“Whatever was here in terms of U.S. trust has really dissipated a lot,” said Broening, adding that U.S. scores on international trust had fallen toward the levels of Russia and China. “That’s a very far stretch from the shining city on a hill.”
