Europeans believe that the United States does not share their values and beliefs, and the reason for this is the lack of integrity in the American political system. This is reported by Bloomberg with reference to the results of the survey.
The companies Datapraxis and YouGov, commissioned by the European Council on Foreign Relations, conducted a study in 12 EU countries. As its results show, only one out of every five respondents agrees that the United States shares common values with Europe. Most believe that Washington should only cooperate for strategic purposes.
One of the reasons for this may be the attitude of the inhabitants of Europe to US politics. So, about half of respondents from France, Germany, and Spain consider the American political system broken.
In addition, if Washington sees the main threat in a growing China, then most Europeans are afraid of Turkey. At the same time, the survey showed that Europeans’ distrust of the EU is also growing. Thus, the majority of respondents in Germany, Italy, Spain, and France said that they no longer believe in the union.
