The expectation that the relationship between López Obrador and Biden could be bad had been 15 percent in October, before the elections in the neighboring country, and then dropped to 10 percent in November and up to 5 percent in December; but in the January study it rebounded again to 15 percent. In contrast, the favorable outlook stood at 28 percent before the election, rose slightly to 30 percent in November, and to 36 percent in December, a level that was also recorded in January.

According to the survey, 48 percent believe that relations between the two countries are favorable, that is, good or very good, while 16 percent describe them as bad or very bad. These responses are similar to the levels recorded last July, when the Mexican president visited his counterpart in the United States.
