In global vote, McCain would lose – but not in Georgia
In a Gallup poll released Tuesday, respondents preferred the Democratic candidate, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, by a margin of 4 to 1.
If the world could vote in the US presidential election, only 8 percent of the global population would choose the Republican candidate, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, according to a Gallup poll of 70 nations released Tuesday. The international popular vote preferred the Democratic candidate, Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois, by a margin of 4 to 1.
Senator McCain’s low standing abroad is echoed in an online global election being conducted by the Economist magazine, where McCain has carried only three nations: Georgia, Macedonia, and Cuba. He has managed a tie in Moldova.
