It also wanted to see if the US President’s America First policy had harmed his country’s image.

The survey was held simultaneously in Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Japan and Korea and the results were compared with exactly the same questions asked the previous year under the Obama administration.

The number of Australians who viewed the US as the most influential player dropped from 22 per cent to just 11 per cent, compared to the year before.

Australians were also the most likely to nominate China as the most influential country in Asia today, at 72 per cent.

And more than half of us (62 per cent) think that US influence over the next five years will be more negative under a Trump administration.


Despite this, 71 per cent still regard the US as the global ‘rule setter’ and almost all (93 per cent) reckon the US would help in the event of an attack.

Australians were also asked their view on the US with Donald Trump as President, with 61 per cent recording a negative response, 16 per cent positive and 24 per cent undecided

The US perceived influence wasn’t as great with other allies either.

The number of Japanese who viewed the US as the most influential player in Asia dropped from 48 per cent to 14 per cent.

And major ally Korea almost halved with 31 per cent compared to 60 per cent the previous year.
