What does China think of the U.S.?
A new poll by the Pew Research Center finds that 39 percent of respondents in China believe their country's relationship with the U.S. is one of cooperation, a sharp drop from 68 percent who said so two years ago.
Twenty-six percent said that U.S. relations were hostile, a jump of 18 percentage points since 2010, with the rest of the public not offering an alternative assessment.
Only 38 percent of Chinese said they had confidence in America's President, Barack Obama, a fall from a narrow majority in 2010 but still higher than George W. Bush's approval rating in China before he left the White House.
