In a new international poll by the BBC World Service, all 22 countries surveyed would prefer that Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama wins the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 4.
The 22 countries, drawn from six continents, preferred Obama over his Republican rival, Sen. John McCain, by an average four to one margin.
The poll confirms the conventional wisdom that, while the race is tightening in the polls at home, the world wants to see an Obama presidency
A BBC World Service poll earlier this year showed that nearly half of the people in countries surveyed viewed U.S. influence on the world negatively.
Only China, Nigeria and India thought that a McCain presidency would improve relations with the rest of the world
But hey, China and Nigeria think McCain and the Republicans are gold. This is a case of birds of a feather flocking together.
