Dear Undecided U.S. Voter…the Rest of the World is Not.

Via on Nov 5, 2012

In a poll conducted by GlobeScan/PIPA for the BBC World Service between 3 July and 3 September, almost 22,000 people surveyed across 21 countries showed very clearly what the rest of the world thinks. The rest of the world (apart from Pakistan) would vote – if they could – overwhelmingly in favor of Obama.

Here’s the original BBC article.

    Some significant countries not listed: Israel, Iraq, Iran, Syria, Afghanistan for starters….

  3. Truth says:

    What's up with Pakistan?

  4. Sorry4yourdog says:

    Doesn't show why they voted that way. For all we know, could just be because one's a Mormon.

  5. Bob says:

    Great graphs! They are all voting based on America's best interests right?!?

  6. Steve says:

    No Scandinavian countries listed?
    If you were in a boxing match, who would you want to fight? A strong opponent or a weak one?
    This list doesn't necessarily mean they have OUR best interest in mind…
