How The World Would Vote

Among America’s closest allies, it’s a landslide for Obama. The president gets 62-65 percent support in Britain; 64 percent in Germany; 65 percent in Brazil; over 70 percent in Canada; 67 percent in Australia; and 72 percent in France. Only two “allied” countries back Rommey: Pakistan and Israel, both increasingly fundamentalist religious states with nuclear weapons. One is clearly still irked by the Osama bin Laden raid; the other calculating that the Republican nominee will more likely back permanent control of the West Bank and a war against Iran.
