"More than half of Americans (54%) believe that US policy toward Russia is not tough enough. And 59% say the EU is not being strong enough. At the same time, only 23% of Germans think Washington is not tough enough. And just 26% believe the EU is not aggressive enough.
A majority of Germans (57%) believe it is more important for Germany to have strong ties with the US than with Russia. Just 15% prefer strong ties with Russia, and another 21% volunteer that it is best to have an equally close relationship with both."
