If The World Picked U.S. President, Election Would Be A Blowout

That's according to a BBC World Service poll taken in 21 countries. It found for the most part, foreign countries preferred Obama. The only exception was Pakistan where more people said they preferred Romney.

1. But Pakistan would vote for Romney!

So a country that's partly controlled by Taliban warlords who want to impose fundamentalist Islamism on their people and absolutely deny any kind of rights to women would vote Republican. This is somehow not surprising.

3. I'm surprised Romney is polling nearly 20% in Kenya.

I thought they would have been more solid.

4. It's because they know Rmoney would be too scared to do anything about Pakistan.

Obama has already showed he really doesn't give a crap about Pakistan's feelings regarding terrorist targets. If there's a terrorist target there, he'll send a stealth spec ops group in to take them out. He won't ask "Mother, may I?" first either.

5. I'm really surprised China wouldn't vote for Romney

Considering all the jobs he's provided them over the past years

8. The global poll would be much more informative

 

if all the main candidates were included.
