(BBC link added to support first one)
I stumbled across this this morning. As I'm not American myself, I can heavily relate on everything in that poll - how true it is. For those too lazy to click;
- 88.6% of the world would vote for Obama
- 92% of the world prefer Ron Paul as Republican candidate (with Romney following at a mere 2.4%)
Now, if I'm right, only about 50% of Americans would vote for Obama, and the other 50% for Romney. That is a MASSIVE difference from the views of the rest of this world, and same goes for Ron Paul and his PoV. My guess is that we like him better because even tho some of his ideas suck, he looks HONEST compared to most. (*corrected this last part to better explain my "idea").
What do you guys think, and who can relate to this?
"Surprisingly, support for Romney fails to match Obama's everywhere except Israel... countries such as Iceland, Netherlands, Portugal, Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, France, Finland, Italy, Turkey, Brazil, Romania, Saudia Arabia & Australia showing 91% support (and up) for Obama" (UPI.com)
