The world votes against Bush
The French newspaper Libération writes: Georges W. Bush is lucky that the election of the world's leader is reserved to a small part of its population: Americans. If the whole world could vote, John Kerry would be assured of a crushing victory.
Liberation based its article on a study by the Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) from Maryland's University, that was released on last Wednesday. It says:
In 30 out of 35 countries polled, from all regions of the world, a majority or plurality would prefer to see John Kerry win the US presidential election—especially traditional US allies. The only countries where President Bush was preferred were the Philippines, Nigeria, and Poland. India and Thailand were divided. On average, Kerry was favored by more than a two-to-one margin—46% to 20% (weighted for variations in population, the ratio was not significantly different).

BTW, the study doesn't mention it, but I'm sure that Bin Laden and his fans would vote Bush too. No one else would play their game as well as he does!
