Transatlantic Trends 2012 is an annual survey of U.S. and European public opinion.
Polling was conducted by TNS Opinion between June 2 and June 27, 2012, in the United States, Turkey, Russia (surveyed for the first time), and 12 European Union member states: Bulgaria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.
The survey is a project of the German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) and the Compagnia di San Paolo, with additional support from the Fundação Luso-Americana, the BBVA Foundation, the Communitas Foundation, the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, and the Open Society Foundations.
The 11th annual Transatlantic Trends Survey has been released today.
The report explores how Americans and Europeans view the transatlantic relationship and a number of growing challenges facing the world. Of particular interest will be the differing perceptions of U.S. President Barack Obama, as well as Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, and how Obama’s foreign policies have been received by the international community.
