Voters More Optimistic About U.S.-China Relations Following Trump’s Asia Trip

President Trump just wrapped up a 12-day long trip to Asia, including a visit with Chinese President Xi Jingping, and voters think the trip may have made a difference in the future of Chinese-American relations.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 30% of Likely U.S. Voters now think America’s trade relationship with China will be better a year from now than it is today, but nearly as many (27%) think it will be worse. Another 33% think America’s trade relationship with China will be about the same in a year’s time, but 10% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
