A new poll shows that about three in ten American college students say that China is more powerful than the U.S.
The survey, conducted by College Pulse, collected responses from over 27,000 college students. Altogether, 8,394 respondents (30 percent) claimed that China, not the U.S., is the most powerful country in the world. China was the second-most selected nation in the poll, trailing only the U.S.

Although the U.S. won the plurality of votes, it received just under half of the total responses (48 percent) from survey participants.
Other notable nations include Russia (six percent), the United Kingdom (four percent), and Germany (three percent).
Campus Reform has previously conducted interviews with college students, some of whom have saidthat America is not the greatest country in the world.
In another video, students toldCampus Reform that they trust the communist Chinese government over the Trump administration and U.S. intelligence.
The latest results come amid tensions between the U.S. and China. As the Trump administration negotiates with China on trade, U.S. intelligence agencies have also warned against potential threats to national security.

FBI Director Christopher Wray said that China is engaging in a large-scale effort to overtake and dominate the economy. He also claimed that there are more than 1,000 ongoing investigations regarding intellectual property theft, with “almost all leading back to China.”
“There is no country that poses a more severe counterintelligence threat to this country right now than China,” Wray said to the Senate Judiciary Committee on July 23. According to Wray, China is attempting to “steal their way up the economic ladder at our expense."
The FBI director clarified that this does not mean the U.S. should not engage in business with the communist powerhouse, but rather that businesses and universities should remain “clear-eyed.”
Security threats regarding China are not exclusive to economic development. Educational development has also been an avenue of concern.
As Campus Reform previously reported, Confucius Institutes, which serve as Chinese culture and language hubs at American college campuses, have received scrutiny from U.S. intelligence agencies over their associations with the Chinese Communist Party. The Trump administration has warned that these institutes are distributing propaganda.
Other instances of Chinese influence in American higher education include a UCLA prof found guilty of stealing critical military technology and handing it over to China and a Chinese company almost buying a university in New Jersey.

Will you help expose liberal bias on America's campuses?
As a Campus Reform reader, you know about the abuse taking place at our nation’s higher education institutions, and you know how important it is to bring these stories to light.
College campuses are no longer bastions of higher learning. Leftist professors indoctrinate students with their agendas. They even silence conservative students with their attempts to suppress free speech.
Campus Reform depends on the financial support of concerned Americans like you to report on leftist indoctrination on college campuses and uncover the blatant misconduct of university administrators, faculty, and students.
