PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD! (*UPDATED*)
Well, most of it… Romney can have Pakistan.
Truth be told, I don’t think this is really worth much of anything outside of an, “Oh, that’s interesting.” It gives a sense of the foreign perception of the candidates and their preferences about American policy… none of which really matters for us over here. Obviously, we’d prefer if the rest of the world liked our President but we shouldn’t cast our vote to that end. I’d be curious to hear WHY folks voted as they did, though I have a hunch that at least part of it is name recognition. I mean, how many folks overseas even know who Mitt Romney is?
I’ve mentioned this in the comments, but it appears quite clearly that my “hunch” that name recognition was off. Thanks to all those for their thoughtful and informative contributions to this and many other ends.
