Relations between Germany and the United States have taken a turn for the better since the election of Joe Biden as president to succeed Donald Trump, according to a YouGov survey published on Wednesday.
The survey of 2,000 respondents taken in late June found that 66 per cent believed relations had improved, while 19 per cent said they were unchanged.
The survey also said that some 6 per cent found a deterioration.
According to the poll, 42 per cent of Germans regard the U.S. as a friend and ally, by contrast with a figure of just 19 per cent in September last year.
Just 11 per cent took the view that the U.S. was ill-disposed to Germany, down from 27 per cent last year.
