I think this poll says it all. The world is going to hell in a handbasket. Is there any country we would want to emulate. Failed states, failed socialist policies, statism,
The Poll Results
Regarding the question of which candidate they would vote for if they could, respondents voted overwhelmingly for Obama in every country polled, with the exception of the United States, where Republican John McCain was preferred over Democrat Obama by a narrow margin.
"It's Obama by a landslide -- except in the country in which he's actually running for president," said John Fredricks, Director of Polling for Reader's Digest. "What is most striking is the margin of his support."
In the Netherlands [the Dutch City of Gouda is being terrorized by Muslim Jihadis] , Obama-mania surpassed 90 percent. In Germany [where Jews beaten at an anti-Islamification rally] , it was at 85 percent--numbers not usually seen in political polling. Similar results held true on all six continents that the magazine polled.
-- Americans ranked the global economy as most important; terrorism,
second; and the war in Iraq, third. Only the Russians were more
concerned with terrorism than Americans.
-- In seven nations (Australia, Brazil, Canada, Finland, Germany, Great
Britain and Taiwan), the environment came out on top as a major
-- Global poverty, which tallied only 4 percent among Americans, was the
No. 1 concern of respondents in six nations (France, Mexico,
Netherlands, Poland, South Africa and Spain) -- and second in five
On the question "When you think of the U.S. government, do you consider yourself pro-American, neutral or anti-American?" respondents in other countries were split:
-- Nine of the 16 other countries were more "anti-American" than
"pro-American,"India and Poland were most enthusiastic about the U.S. government.
-- Anti-American sentiment was highest among Indonesia, Netherlands and
Spain, although U.S. neighbors Mexico and Canada expressed it as well.
In response to a question about whether respondents would like to move to the United States, the French expressed strong interest, as did 73% of respondents in India. In Canada, only about 25% expressed an interest in relocating, while in Mexico, the nation that sends the most immigrants to the United States, one-third said they'd want to move there. French novelist Philippe Laibro hypothesized in the article that "the legend remains. America is still that land of the second chance, of multiple opportunities, where anyone can succeed."
