(BEIJING) -- A new poll shows that mainland Chinese residents are increasingly worried about major issues like corruption and inflation.
Results from the Pew Global Attitudes Project also show about half of those polled say they like American ideas about democracy. Other concerns include the gap between rich and poor and food safety.
The results come just weeks before a once-in-a-decade transfer of power in China after ten years of explosive economic growth. The Communist Party will announce its next leader in November, widely expected to be Xi Jinping. ]
Xi faces growing calls for reform from China’s new middle class.
