Anton Lee Wishik II wrote about an interesting statistic while discussing polling in China:
89% of Chinese respondents expressed satisfaction with their national government and 34% were satisfied with their own life. The corresponding numbers for the US were 51% and 65%.
I don’t know how true these particular numbers are, but I am not surprised about the relative differences in the numbers. I do wish for a more content Chinese population with less satisfaction of the government but more happiness of their own lives.
By the way, thanks Anton. I just want to shout out my appreciation of your effort in blogging about US-Sino Relations.
