Pew Research Center surveys have shown, many of political tensions between China and the U.S. are reflected in American public opinion. Meanwhile, the Chinese public has its own complaints about the U.S.—in particular, most believe the U.S. is trying to contain a rising China. This article presents six key findings about American public opinion toward China, and Chinese public opinion about the U.S. While some surveys show a genereally negative opinion in both countries, it was found that young people possess a more piositive view of both China and the U.S.
