Donald Trump's tenure in the White House and his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic have dragged Canadians' view of the United States to its lowest level in nearly 20 years, a new poll suggests.
The Pew Research Center report released Tuesday finds a favourable view of the U.S. among only 35 per cent of Canadians surveyed, the lowest level recorded since Pew began polling north of the Canada-U. S. border in 2002.
The finding tracks an identical trend among all 13 countries involved in the poll record lows were also recorded in the U.K., France, Germany, Japan and Australia.
"Overall, what we see in Canada fits in with the broader pattern of what we see with a number of these other key allies and partners," said Richard Wike, Pew's director of global attitudes research.
"It's really reactions to American policies that have been a key driver of what people in Canada and elsewhere think of the United States."
