The Pew Research Center conducted an international survey between April 4 and May 29 regarding attitudes towards the U.S. and when it came to Donald Trump, the wanna-be president fared miserably. In fact, positive ratings were in the single digits in nearly half the countries surveyed. According to the AP:
In seven of 15 countries outside of the U.S. polled by Pew Research Center, Trump's ratings are in the single digits. Large majorities in 11 of the countries have little or no confidence in the prospective Republican presidential nominee ability to manage international affairs. That includes 92 percent of Swedes, 89 percent of Germans and 82 percent of Japanese.
Trump did, however, do a bit better in China, where 40 percent polled have zero confidence in him, but 39 percent have no opinion. The survey polled 20,132 people from 16 countries, including Canada, 10 countries in Europe, four in Asia, and the U.S. When compared to Hillary Clinton, "a median of 59 percent in Europe have confidence in the Democratic contender — compared with just 9 percent for Trump."

With all the revolutionary tech that’s out there, it’s pretty sad that finding a simple stud in your wall can feel like dowsing for water. This can be equally true whether you’re using a magnetic finder and it’s reliance on “feel,” or an electronic unit that can give fuzzy readings (especially when the batteries are […]
