Data: Pew Research Center; Chart: Axios Visuals

Views of China in many countries have become more negative, with unfavorable views spiking in the past year as survey respondents disapproved of China's coronavirus response, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

Why it matters: Beijing's global propaganda campaign earlier this year to deflect blame for the pandemic seems to have failed.

Details: The survey assessed views in 14 developed countries, including Britain, Sweden, Germany, South Korea and Japan.

  • 78% of respondents said they had little faith in Chinese President Xi Jinping.
  • 61% of respondents said China had handled the coronavirus poorly.
  • Yes, but: Survey respondents rated the U.S. pandemic response even worse, with 84% saying the U.S. had done a bad job.

The bottom line: Developed countries seem disillusioned with both China and the U.S.

Editor's note: The chart was corrected to reflect the survey polled 14,276 adults, not 1,563 adults.

Renters face "looming evictions cliff" as end of moratorium nears

Data: Urban Institute; Chart: Axios Visuals

Although the national eviction moratorium was extended through January — thanks to the passage of the latest big stimulus — renters aren't breathing easy, according to the Urban Institute’s Coronavirus Tracking Survey.

Why it matters: Once the latest reprieve is over, renters will likely be in the same predicament as they were in September when the moratorium took effect — and the nation will face what the Urban Institute calls a "looming evictions cliff."

Axios-Ipsos poll: Republicans oppose removing Trump over Capitol siege

Data: Ipsos/Axios Survey; Chart: Axios Visuals

Eight in 10 Republicans oppose removing President Trump from office for inciting his supporters to storm Congress in an effort to overturn his election loss, according to a new Ipsos poll for Axios.

Why it matters: The stark finding underscores the degree to which the Republican Party has become the party of Trump.

Biden gets mixed grades on revolving door

President Biden is getting mixed marks for his reliance on industry insiders to staff his administration during its first 100 days.

Why it matters: Progressives have leaned on the new president to limit the revolving door between industry and government. A new report from the Revolving Door Project praises him on that front but highlights key hires it deems ethically questionable.
