BEIJING — Americans aren’t the only ones disillusioned by the vitriolic presidential race this year. New research shows that a large number of Chinese citizens who previously supported democratic reforms are now questioning the intelligence of a system that allows politicians to spend nearly two years trying to become president instead of doing the jobs for which they were elected.
According to a recent Pew Research Center poll, the number of Chinese who said they admire American-style democracy declined by 64% since the beginning of the 2012 campaign season, with the sharpest drop during the Republican primaries.
