TechnoMetrica started tracking China's favorability in March.

To compute the index, we use survey responses to the question: Generally speaking, is your opinion of China: Very Favorable, Somewhat Favorable, Not Very Favorable, or Not At All Favorable.

The indexes range from 0 to 100.  A reading of 50 or higher is favorable, while a reading of 50 or lower is unfavorable.  50 is neutral.

Only one of the 36 demographic groups we track has a favorable opinion of China.
