The USA was viewed narrowly more positively than negatively. The BBC headlined that Germany was "the most popular country in the world". In terms of positive-to-negative ratio (as above), though, Canada seems to be the real #1. Germany's ratio is 39-to-10 positive; Canada's ratio: 42-to-10 positive. / The USA's ratio in 2013 is 13-to-10 positive, similar to South Korea's 12-to-10 positive. Japan's popularity in 2013 took a hit, probably due to the island disputes, and maybe the more-recent depreciation of their currency. In 2012, it seems that Japan had an impressive 28-to-10 positive ratio, down in 2013 to 19-to-10.
