    How Our European/German Friends View the US

    In another thread there was discussion about how Germany feels about the U.S. Here is some survey data. The full topline report can be found at transatlantictrrends.org . Once there, link is on menu as 2004 topline data.

    The study has a + - 3% margin of error at a 95% confidence interval for the individual countries. Here is a selection of 1001 randomly selected adult German's responses.

    Q8. Next I'd like you to rate your feelings toward some countries, institutions and people, with one hundred meaning a very warm, favorable feeling, zero meaning a very cold, unfavorable feeling, and fifty meaning not particularly warm or cold. You can use any number from zero to one hundred. If you have no opinion or have never heard of that country or institution, please say so.

    Regarding the US
    Germany = 55


    Q9. Do you approve or disapprove of the way the President of the United States George W. Bush is handling international policies? Very much or somewhat?

    Very Much or Somewhat Approve = 9%
    Very Much or Somewhat Disapprove = 86%

    Q12. In recent years, have Europe and the United States grown closer, further apart or remained about the same?

    Grown Closer = 21%
    Further Apart = 40%
    Remained the Same = 37%


    Q13a. And in light of what happened in Iraq, do you think that the partnership between the U. S. and the European Union should become closer, should remain about the same or should the [European Union/ United States] take a more independent approach from the [United States/ European Union] in security and diplomatic affairs?

    Become Closer = 21%
    Remain the Same = 14%
    More Independent = 64%


    Q17a. Do you think the war in Iraq was worth the loss of life and the other costs of attacking Iraq or not?

    Yes = 8%
    No = 89%
    DK = 3%

    Q17b. Do you think the war in Iraq to liberate the Iraqi people was worth the loss of life and the other costs of attacking Iraq or not?

    Yes = 11%
    No = 85%
    DK = 4%

    Well we do have our critics don't we. Those Germans!

    Players come and go, but I will always be a Miami Dolphins Fan first and foremost.

    Bringing freedom to millions of people is not worth dying for according to the Germans.

    I applaud the few with morals who actually voted yes.

    East Germans seem to have a short memory.

    Ten years from now when we free Canada from their socialist dictatorship the Iraqi people will probably vote similarly to the way the Germans voted. Such is life.
