Obama win preferred in world poll

People outside the US would prefer Barack Obama to become US president ahead of John McCain, a BBC World Service poll suggests.

Democrat Mr Obama was favoured by a four-to-one margin across the 22,500 people polled in 22 countries.

In 17 countries, the most common view was that US relations with the rest of the world would improve under Mr Obama.

If Republican Mr McCain were elected, the most common view was that relations would remain about the same.


The poll was conducted before the Democratic and Republican parties held their conventions and before the headline-grabbing nomination of Sarah Palin as Mr McCain's running mate.

I hope this poll isn't given widespread coverage. The xenophobic American mindset is we'd rather be different and wrong than right and the same as the rest of the world. It is similar to the move to forbid judges from using English Common Law as the basis for any decision, if it isn't invented or thought up in America, it's no good.
