Good for the Chinese Americans. Most Chinese Americans hold an unfavorable view of their ancestral homeland, according to a new study, making them the Asian immigrant group most negative about their country of origin.
The Pew Research Center reported that most immigrants and descendants from the Communist nation viewed other Asian countries, including even breakaway Taiwan, more positively than China. Among Chinese Americans, just 41% had a favorable view of mainland China, including 45% of immigrant adults and 25% of those born in the U.S.
By comparison, 62% of Chinese Americans expressed a favorable view of Taiwan, a key Chinese rival. Overall, just 20% of all Asians surveyed expressed a positive view of China. The survey included Americans of Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese and Vietnamese descent and the findings showed no significant difference between self-identified Democrats and Republicans.
