America's popularity Waning As Russia and China Gain on Global Stage | Politico |

Washington's staunch backing for Israel's war in Gaza likely hurt its popularity by Muslims worldwide.

America's popularity as a global power is waning worldwide, particularly in Muslim-majority countries, according to the 2024 Democracy Perception Index published on May 8.

This index summarizes the attitudes toward democracy, geopolitics, and global power players gathered from around 63,000 respondents from 53 countries.

United States

Since early 2023, the US' international reputation has taken a blow, mainly in Muslim countries, particularly as it continued to support "Israel" in its war against Gaza. 

According to the senior researcher at the Latana survey company that worked on this index, Frederick DeVeaux, this negative perception of the US has reached Europe for the first time since Biden started his reign. 

"For the first time since the start of the Biden administration, many Western European countries have returned to net negative perceptions of the US," DeVeaux said. 

"This rise and decline, from negative attitudes to positive [and] back to negative attitudes is particularly stark in Germany, Austria, Ireland, Belgium, and Switzerland," he added.
