THE RUS­SIA FAC­TOR

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

“As rev­e­la­tions about Rus­sian in­ter­fer­ence in the 2016 U.S. pres­i­den­tial elec­tion con­tinue to de­velop, Amer­i­cans now view Rus­sia more neg­a­tively than they have in three decades of Gallup polls. Cur­rently, 25 per­cent of Amer­i­cans have a fa­vor­able opin­ion of Rus­sia and 72 per­cent have an un­fa­vor­able opin­ion,” re­ports a new sur­vey from the poll­ster, which says this is the high­est neg­a­tive read­ing on record for the sen­ti­ment.

There is par­ti­san dif­fer­ence. Cur­rently 30 per­cent of Re­pub­li­cans and 15 per­cent of Democrats have a pos­i­tive view of Rus­sia, says Gallup an­a­lyst Me­gan Bre­nan.
