Porter Novelli Survey Shows Americans See New NAFTA Likely, Germany's Ties to the United States Hit Hard Under Administration

WASHINGTON, June 29, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Porter Novelli recently released nationally representative and inside the beltway survey results that revealed what most American voters and D.C. policy-insiders think about the new administration's trade agenda. The study revealed that 53 percent of Americans believe changes will be made to NAFTA before the 2018 midterms, yet, only a third of D.C. policy-insiders agree (33 percent.)

When asked which relationship had deteriorated most since the current administration took office, 38% of policy-insiders believe Germany's relationship with the U.S. has deteriorated the most, while, while most American voters are more confident in their assertion with 50 percent saying Mexico, followed by Germany at 25 percent. A close second to Germany, 36% of policy insiders agree with Americans that the American Mexican relationship has suffered most. 

The new survey data was released as part of the Global Entrepreneurship Export Exchange (E3) Conference, where more than 40 embassies came together to engage in open-panel discussions, presentations and networking sessions that examined foreign relations and the changing landscape of global trade.
