The partisan gap in Americans' concerns about U.S.-Russian relations has widened — and flipped — since President Trump was elected last year, per a Pew report.
Reproduced from a Nov. 9, 2017 Pew Research Center study.
Behind the numbers: Pew has shifted wording on its questions about Russia over the years, depending on relevant foreign policy issues. In 2005, 2006, 2008, 2013 and 2015, respondents were asked their views on "growing authoritarianism in Russia." In 2009 and 2013, they were asked about "growing tensions between Russia and its neighbors." Respondents were asked about "tensions with Russia" in 2016 and "Russia's power and influence" in 2017.
