Global Voting

I checked back on The Economist's Global Electoral College.

Lots more votes in (please, tell all of your international blog friends to vote!) and McCain remains unpopular. In fact, in an admittedly fast click-through on the list, I found only four places where he's doing well.

Israel - 33% of those voting so far favor McCain
Peru - 35% of those voting so far favor McCain
Colombia - 40% of those voting so far favor McCain
Venezuela - A whopping 44% of those voting so far favor McCain.

I did a random check of about 30-35 countries and found none with a majority favoring McCain. The four listed above gave McCain the highest approval ratings I saw.

Most of the countries seem to be running around 78% in favor of Obama.


P.S. Someone in the comments, made me realize that I should have mentioned that there are many, many countries with 0 votes registered. This includes Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan and probably other countries that the commenter seems to fear are harboring Terrorists For Obama.

I would assume that the terrorists and countries that support terrorists must be running around 98% - 100% in favor of Obama!! I wonder why? Hmmm!

Well, you make a good point. Naturally I should have mentioned in my post that many of the Asian and Eastern countries whose names I clicked on had 0 votes. :)
