Canada is seen as the most positive influence globally! That's right, we're the nicest people in the world, and now the most positively influential nation! According to a new survey (Ipsos MORI) which polled 18,000 respondents across 25 nations, Canada was seen as setting the best example. The U.S. image has dropped 24 percentage points since last year’s ranking.
Respondents were answering the question, "Thinking about right now, would you say the following countries are overall having a positive or negative influence on world affairs?"
81% of those responding said that Canada is having a positive influence while 19% said negative. The top three also include Australia with a 79% positive influence and Germany with 67%.
Maybe they should change our motto to "True, North, Strong, Free...and Influential!"
