From the China Daily:
America may have suffered a PR nightmare in other parts of the world but many Chinese give Uncle Sam a cautious thumbs up.
A recent poll showed about two thirds of Chinese have a favourable opinion of Americans although 56.7 per cent believe Washington is attempting to limit China’s influence.
A traditional Chinese wedding is held in Chengdu on January 19 as a man from US marries a local girl. Some 70.9 per cent of respondents felt positive about Sino-US relations while 24.8 per cent think the ties are sour. The rest answered “don’t know,” in the poll, believed to be the first ever, and carried out by the Global Times newspaper, the Institute of American Studies of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences and polling company HC International.
