What if the whole world could vote in this election?

According to this website: http://us-election.org/wv-results.php?region=wor

68% want Kerry
18% want Bush

The statistics must be so different because on the link you gave there are only two choices.

Wow, the world is filled with idiots....at least 86% of them are.

Luckily other countries have no say on who we elect and what policies we want. I like it that way, we know what's best for us.

I must be one of them since I cannot figure out where your 86% came from...

He's referring to this figure:
68% want Kerry
18% want Bush

68+18=86.

So only the 14% that don't vote for Kerry or Bush ... ah, I get it. Cool, thanks!
