LONDON - The UK now ranks as less politically stable than Greece or Egypt, and the US isn't far behind, according to an extensive global survey of expatriates.

The survey is conducted annually by Munich-based InterNations, a network of 3.6 million expatriates. More than 20,000 of them, including retirees, students, executives and skilled workers, were asked to rate the places they live on a variety of metrics. The US has also seen its reputation plummet as a destination for foreigners, according to the survey. As recently as 2014, expats rated the country as the fifth-most desirable place to move. It ranks 47th this year.

"There's often prejudice against foreign people," a Mexican expat in the US said in the InterNations survey."I've lived in both 'blue' and 'red' states, and there's not much of a difference."
