Most Countries See The U.S. As A Greater Threat Than Russia

The charts on this page are from the Pew Research Center. It is from their Global Attitudes Survey for 2018.

The chart above will probably shock most Americans. It shows how 24 countries surveyed view the threat from the two biggest powers -- the United States and Russia. Which one do they view to be the greater threat?

Note that 17 of the 24 countries view the power and influence of the U.S. to be a greater threat to them than the power and influence of Russia. Only 7 of the 24 view Russia as the greater threat.

The chart below shows that the view of the U.S. as a threat has grown significantly larger than it was in either 2013 or 2017. The next chart shows why. There is less confidence in the leadership of Donald Trump than there was when Barack Obama was president.

NOTE -- While most of the countries surveyed viewed the U.S. and Russia as a threat to their security and safety, it was not the greatest threat they saw. Overall, the greatest threat was global climate change -- followed by ISIS, cyberattacks, North Korea's nuclear program, and the global economy. U.S. power and influence was sixth, and Russian power and influence was seventh.
