World Wants Bush Out of the White House
    #3138320 - 09/15/04 12:53 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The world wants President Bush out of the White House, according to a poll released on Wednesday that shows in 30 of 35 countries people preferred Democrat candidate John Kerry.

Kerry was particularly favored in traditionally strong U.S. allies and beat Bush on average by more than a two-to-one margin, 46 percent to 20 percent, the survey by GlobeScan Inc, a global research firm, and the University of Maryland, said.

The survey of attitudes around the world contrasts with U.S. polls that have shown the American electorate closely divided and that Bush has been gaining momentum since the Republican convention this month.

Bush launched a U.S.-led invasion of Iraq last year over the objections of many governments, including allies, and the first U.S. pre-emptive war angered many people around the world. Kerry has said he will pursue stronger international alliances if he wins the presidency.

"Only one in five want to see Bush re-elected. Though he is not as well known, Kerry would win handily if the people of the world were to elect the U.S. president," Steven Kull, director of the university's program on international policy attitudes, said.

The only countries where Bush was preferred in the poll of 34,330 people that was conducted mainly in July and August were the Philippines, Nigeria and Poland. India and Thailand were divided.

Asked how the foreign policy of Bush has affected their feelings toward the United States, a majority or plurality of respondents in 30 countries said it made them feel worse about America, while in three countries more respondents said they felt better.

The survey's margin of error was plus or minus 2.3 to 5 percentage points.




Here are some of the poll results:
Norway: 74%-7%
Germany: 74%-10%
France: 64%-5%
Italy: 58%-14%
Spain: 45%-7%
UK: 47%-16%
Canada: 61%-16%
Mexico: 38%-18%
Brazil: 57%-14%
China: 52%-12%
Japan: 43%-32%
Indonesia: 57%-34%
India: 34%-33%

The picture was more mixed in Asia. Only respondents in the Philippines clearly backed Mr Bush, but there was an almost even divide in India and Thailand.

Philippines: 32%-57%
Nigeria: 33%-27%
Poland: 26%-31%
Thailand: 30%-33%

Should it ever matter who the rest of the world wants to be the president, you statistics will have some interest.

Until then they are worthless.

Or to put it another, simpler way.... who gives a shit.

we shouldn't let the rest of the world decide our fate but we should definetly at least take it into consideration. Who here likes being forced into carrying on discussions with people you hate? Could be a problem at a UN meeting or if the president goes to another country to visit with their president or prime minister. Since we are the police of the world, it would help more if they liked us.

No, we should not.

That's just part of life.

They're supposed to be adults. There are a great many unpopular world leaders.

Really? I don't see the need.

I want a president who puts this country first and foremost. It's not a matter of who's the choice of the rest of the world, any more than Americans should have a voice in who's the leader of say.... Canada. And I'd think that Canadians wouldn't give a fuck about who we think should lead them.

Lurvdemshrooms is right, it's the beautiful people of the USA who gets to vote in your presidential election.

As long as you're propping up dictators, assasinating democratically elected leaders and "spreadin' democracy", all in the name of that cultural disaster "the american dream", we'll keep bitching though.

So what?

I don't recall the citizens of Germany being worried about what the world thought.

Frankly, basing your vote on what others think would be the height of stupidity.

Call it anything you'd like. The President of the U.S. should always put the interests of the U.S. first.
