In a new Harris Poll, just 15 percent of Americans termed France a close ally of the U.S. Though linked with France in opposing the war in Iraq, Germany fared better in the new poll: 19 percent called it a close ally, 40 percent a friendly non-ally, 21 percent an unfriendly non-enemy and 4 percent an enemy. In 2004, 51% of American adults called Canada a "close ally" of the U.S.
