If the Rest of the World Elected the American President, Obama Would Win in a Landslide

Interesting poll results from a poll jointly conducted by GlobeScan and PIPA (Program on International Policy Attitudes), two international polling groups.

Turns out most of the world would like President Obama to win the election.

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:

First, countries ranked by their support for Romney:
