    I think this says it all. Iraq is solid McCain.

    Not exactly a scientific poll, being internet voting on the Economist.

    I'd like to see the scientific poll results.

    This proves that the world looks forward to American weakness, and they know that Obama will bring that.

    By no means is America 80% Obama and 20% McCain. Kind of puts a damper on the whole study if you ask me.

    That's a phenomenally weak argument, but more sad is that as a McCain supporter, you apparently view the entire world as enemies of the U.S.

    Too bad the rest of the world has no say in how another country should run.

    That's equally weak.

    The world is a large, complex place full of many differing points of view and priorities. Any trying to sum this up in one categorical statement is doomed to failure.

    Yawn. Since the world doesn't vote, I don't care.

    Out of curiosity, what would you apologize for? And who exactly would you apologize to?

    All Obama supporters need to read Atlas Shrugged..

    It's 53%-47% Obama, maybe 54%-46%, but as far as electoral votes, it's possible that Obama can capture 80% percent of those. He has close to 70% percent projected and McCain is not making any headway this late in the election with 10 days, 59 minutes left. He may have had a 2% percent bump with the plumber dude but that help didn't last long. ;)

    In this study, the typical electoral college procedure cannot be followed, as there's no way to make a direct comparison to the other countries. In order to make a fair comparison, the popular vote method must be used, and there's no way Obama is leading with 80%.

    As for popular vote in any state, McCain's strongest state Utah and Obama's strongest state Hawaii only give each candidate around 63-65% percent at best. I guess nobody could get 80% percent of popular vote. As for other countries, I have no idea if either candidate can capture 80% percent of the voters taking part from any country. Unfortunately, the only place I see the number 80% percent (or more) when it comes to dominance is the term "Windows" as it is related to market share.

    It obviously means the world will feel better with Obama as President.

    Except for Iraq where that website is probably censored.
