U.S. Millennials tend to have favorable views of foreign countries and institutions – even as they age
Younger people in the United States often have more positive views of foreign countries and institutions than their elders, according to Pew Research Center surveys. But do these attitudes persist as generations age? Results of a new analysis indicate that even as they grow older, younger generations tend to be more internationally oriented, more favorably disposed to groups, leaders and countries beyond their border, and less likely to see the U.S. as exceptional.
Much of the discussion of different generations focuses on how they act domestically with other age groups. This survey from Pew, however, focuses on how generations in the US look outward to the world.
