US elections: 81% non-Americans want Obama re-elected
London: A poll of more than 570,000 people across the globe has revealed non-Americans want Barack Obama to remain president of the United States.
The poll conducted across 36 countries outside the US revealed 81 percent were in favour of Obama spending another four years in office.
And only 19 percent preferred his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, according to the findings from MSN.
Interestingly, the only country that would prefer Romney as the next President was China - with 52 percent voting in his favour.
In the UK, Obama came out with a huge 85 percent of the vote.
“Mitt Romney lost all hope of winning Britons` hearts after suggesting the country wasn`t ready to host the Olympics,” Duncan Hooper, managing editor of MSN News & Sport, said.
“He made so many gaffes during a visit to London that it became known as the ‘Romneyshambles’”, the Daily Mail quoted Hooper, as saying.
“Barack Obama is still remembered as the man who represented a significant and welcome change after the much maligned George W Bush``s eight years in the White House,” he added.
