Poll: China Seen Surpassing the U.S. as Superpower

People around the world see the U.S. as a waning superpower with China poised to supplant it, according to international polling conducted for the Pew Research Center.

The polling shows people in many countries already view China as the leading economic power. Among the 39 countries surveyed, six — including the U.S. and Japan — had pluralities or majorities saying that China will never replace the U.S.

“Regardless of which country is seen as the economic powerhouse today, many publics believe China will eventually replace the U.S. as the world’s leading superpower, if it has not already done so,” according to the report released today by the Washington-based Pew Center’s Global Attitudes Project.
