Britain and the US in a world on fire
Authors: Richards, B.
This is an analysis of the results of a UK national poll designed by Prof. Barry Richards and conducted by the research company Opinium in September 2015. The aim of this survey was to assess the strength in the UK of both pro- and anti-American feelings, at a time of globally increasing insecurity and flux. While a substantial reserve of positive feeling towards the US may still be available, the survey data suggests that a long-term decline of public affinity with the US may be in progress, ambivalently interwoven with continuing support for the US role in countering global terrorism.
