The rest of the world (apart from Pakistan) would vote – if they could – overwhelmingly in favor of Obama.

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

  4. Truth says:

    What's up with Pakistan?

  5. Sorry4yourdog says:

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

  6. Bob says:

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

  7. 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…
