1991 Poll

February 1, 1991

The 1991 Gallup/French-American Foundation Image Study was designed to investigate the attitudes of American adults toward France, and to simultaneously examine French adults’ opinions of the United States.

The survey measures public opinion and behavior in the following areas:

  • perceived relationship between the two countries
  • opinion of the other country as an ally, or a place to live in comparison with other Western European countries
  • perceived economic power and prestige
  • importance of various aspects of society
  • knowledge of and travel experience to the other country

A total of 1,008 American adults and 1,005 French adults were interviewed in January and February 1991.

Results from this survey are compared to results from Gallup projects conducted in 1976, 1982, and 1986. A trend analysis is included.
