Partisan divide on whether shutdown is ‘very serious’ problem
Republicans and Democrats express overwhelmingly negative views of North Korea. Republicans have warmer feelings about Russia. The widest partisan differences are in opinions about Mexico.
Views of Mexico are mixed: While 39% say they feel “warmly” toward Mexico, 34% feel “coldly,” and 26% are neutral, according to a new Pew Research Center survey. The public has much warmer feelings toward Canada. Two-thirds (67%) say they feel warmly toward Canada, with 52% giving it a very warm rating (76 or higher on the scale). Just 12% feel coldly toward Canada.
Most Americans say that NAFTA is good for the United States, and relatively few say that Mexico or Canada benefit more from the agreement than the U.S. does.
Republicans who live closer to the U.S.-Mexico border are less supportive of the wall than are those who live farther away.
Only 39% of Americans view building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border as a very or somewhat important goal.
