If China is so powerful, why don't I, an American, see Chinese influence?

I think most Chinese would agree with you that China is not so powerful, in the sense that she hasn't reached her potential and fulfilled our expectation.
China is still a relative poor country with only 6400 USD GDP per capita. She is not the cool kid in your school, she is the nerdy one. Just give her some time, let’s see what happens in the high school reunion.

我认为大多数中国人会同意你,中国不是那么强大,她还没发挥潜能,实现我们的期望。

中国仍是相对贫困的国家,人均GDP只有6400美元。她不是学校的酷孩子,是书呆子。给她一点时间。

China is an economic superpower and the most populated country on earth. China is also the US’s biggest rival for political and naval power in the Pacific. (Think the Trans-Pacific Partnership President Obama has been promoting recently. So far China hasn’t been invited—I wonder why?)
China is influential on a global scale, economically, politically, and socially, but in ways that might be difficult to identify in our day-to-day lives because they are quite broad. Plus American news media does not do a good job of covering things outside the U.S. Add to that the vast cultural differences between the U.S. and China and it can be hard to see, but our government and businesses take China very, very seriously; the government is literally paying to send American college students to China so they can learn Mandarin (and several other languages over government has deemed ‘critical’- you can google the Critical Language Scholarship.)
Plus, the New York Times has an entire section titled “Sinosphere: Insight, analysis and conversation about Chinese culture, media, and politics.”

China’s influence on the global stage will only become more visible as time goes on.

中国是经济强国,世上人口最多的国家,也是美国在政治、太平洋制海权上最大的竞争对手。(想下奥巴马推进的TPP,为何中国没被邀请呢?)

中国的影响是全球范围的,经济、政治和社会,但某种程度上,很难在我们的日常生活中辨别,因为太广泛了。另外美国新闻媒体在美国之外的事务上做的不那么好,加上两国巨大的文化差异,这也很难看到,但我们的政服和企业非常非常看重中国。我们的政服花钱把美国大学生送去中国学中文(以及其他政服认为“关键”语言,你可以搜索一下“关键语言奖学金项目”)。

另外,纽约时报有一个完整栏目名为:汉文字文化,对中国文化、媒体、政治的洞察、分析和对话。

随着时间的推移,中国在全球舞台上的影响力只会变得更加明显。

You seen real estate prices in Vancouver and Seattle? Absolutely unaffordable due to Chinese capital flight. The real estate market in those two cities is seen as a more advantageous savings instrument than local banking in China.
Notice the low gas prices lately? You can thank in large part, a decade of Chinese renewable energy research yielding results and decreasing global demand for oil.
Wonder why every Marvel superhero movie seems to have a scene or a character from China? Or villains from Japan and Korea? Studios bank on the Chinese market to make up for fumbles in the domestic market.

你知道温哥华和西雅图的房价吗?资本外逃,因为中国资本外逃。这两座城市的房地产市场被视为比中国本土银行更有利的储蓄工具。

注意到最近的低油价了吗?你要大程度地感激中国10年来在可再生能源研究领域的成果,以及对全球石油需求的减少。

知道为啥漫威超级英雄电影都有中国的场景或人物,或者日本/韩国的反派吗?电影公司指望在中国市场弥补国内市场的漏洞。

Your Apple and Samsung products were manufactured in China, despite being nominally American and Korean companies.
Ever wonder why the USA didn’t just overrun North Korea between the end of the Cold War and their first nuclear test? China had already defeated the USA on the peninsula once before.
The truth of the matter is that China’s soft power focus is on South Asia and Africa, not the Americas, so we get less overt cultural overtures than one might expect. China’s influence on the states manifests less culturally and more economically and politically.

你的苹果、三星产品是在中国制造的,尽管名义上是美国或韩国的公司。

知道为什么在冷战到朝鲜第一次核试验期间,美国不击垮朝鲜吗?中国曾经在朝鲜半岛上击败过美国。

事实是,中国软实力集中在南亚和非洲,不是美洲,所以我们得到比预期更少的文化信息。中国对美洲的影响在文化上体现得少,在经济、政治上更多。
