This poll, which sampled the opinions of 1,010 American and 1,016 French adults, was commissioned by the French-American Foundation and conducted by Harris Interactive. Many of the questions included were repeated from earlier studies, previously conducted in 2000, 2002, 2005 and 2007. This research serves to evaluate feelings between the two nations, as well as explore current issues and perceived threats facing each country.
Overall, the 2010 findings suggested an improvement in the attitudes of adults in both France and the United States. Despite warmer feelings toward one another, the data also indicated that adults in both countries may worry about similar issues and perceived threats to their nation, albeit possibly for different reasons and at different levels of importance.
