Not surprising...

Quote:
Almost all American voters see Canada and Great Britain as allies of the United States, while most rate Iran and North Korea as enemies.

And on the 10-year anniversary of the war that toppled Saddam Hussein, a sizable majority considers Iraq an enemy.

The latest Fox News national poll asks voters to rate a list of countries as friend or foe.

More consider Canada (93 percent) an ally than any other. It’s followed closely by Great Britain (91 percent), France (85 percent) and Germany (83 percent).

Most voters also feel Israel, where President Barack Obama is traveling this week, is a friend (77 percent), and the same number view Mexico positively (77 percent).
Turkey is the only other country to have more than half of voters designate it as a U.S. ally (56 percent).

At the other end of the spectrum, large majorities say Iran (84 percent) and North Korea (83 percent) are enemies.

Sixty-nine percent of voters consider Iraq an enemy. Veterans and those currently serving in the military are more likely than Americans overall to call Iraq an ally (32 percent and 21 percent respectively).

Majorities also consider Syria (61 percent) and Libya (59 percent) enemies.
Who is our worst enemy? North Korea takes that mantle, as two-thirds say it is a “bitter” enemy (65 percent). Over half say the same of Iran (54 percent).

For the most part, Democrats and Republicans agree on which countries are friends and which are foes. There are two exceptions: a 54-percent majority of Democrats says China is an ally, while a 58-percent majority of Republicans rates it as an enemy.

Also, Democrats consider Egypt a friend (59 percent ally, 24 percent enemy), while more Republicans say foe (49 percent enemy, 38 percent ally).

Meanwhile, by a 20 percentage-point margin, Republicans are more likely than Democrats to view Libya as an enemy (69 percent and 49 percent respectively).

Congressional Republicans continue to question how the Obama administration handled the September 11, 2012 attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya that killed a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cell phone interviews with 1,002 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from March 17 to March 19. The full poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.

More Americans see Turkey as an ally then see Norway as an ally.

Norway has lots of oil.

Sounds like Norway needs to receive some FREEDOM

I'm surprised to see that France is so popular in the US after recent history.

France will be hard-pressed to get that approval rating in Britain, though.

What did the French do that would disturb the historic, long-term picture?

When have the French ever been particularly popular in Britain?

That one is interesting. Only 21% the military currently serving thinks the regime they created is an ally? And Only 32% of Veterans?

Yikes. Glad we stayed out of that one.

You'd likely see something similar with Canada and Afghanistan.

Not since the days of the Scarlet Pimpernel.
