Interesting poll results from a poll jointly conducted by GlobeScan and PIPA (Program on International Policy Attitudes), two international polling groups.
So, come on America! Be a good sport and make it happen! While Obama coming out on top in a poll like this is of no surprise, the margin of victory is breathtaking. Only in Pakistan does Obama fail to be overwhelmingly more popular than Romney. And let’s be honest: Obama was never going to be popular there after spending the last couple of years bombing the crap out of it.
To the numbers!
An average of 50% of foreigners favored Obama, with just 9% supporting Mitt Romney. Of the 21 countries covered, Pakistan favored Obama the least, with France polling a massive 72% preference for Obama. The poll surveyed 21,797 people in 21 different countries.
I could keep writing out the results of the poll, but the graphs make for much better viewing:
