Global Opinion of Presidential Candidates
The Economist have put together an interesting poll allowing the world to vote for the US President, in an effort to see what the outcome would be.
The Economist has redrawn the electoral map to give all 195 of the world’s countries (including the United States) a say in the election’s outcome. As in America, each country has been allocated a minimum of three electoral-college votes with extra votes allocated in proportion to population size. With over 6.5 billion people enfranchised, the result is a much larger electoral college of 9,875 votes. But rally your countrymen—a nation must have at least ten individual votes in order to have its electoral-college votes counted.
So far McCain is running away with Moldova, Macedonia, Georgia and Cuba. Killing it. This might be an indication of the countries that that still hold the US in high regard… you know, those four.
