A bit of fun and not representative of anything (they don't seem to give actual vote tallies, just %'s of a 'global electoral college' as formulated per country), however the current Australian figure (85% to Obama) is actually bang on a widely reported 1000 person poll conducted here only a week or so ago.
Consarn it, FYROM!

McCain is Kicking some butt in Macedonia and Andorra.

Macedonia: McCain 60% Obama 40%

Andorra: McCain 62% Obama 38%


But, Barack Obama leads in Ghana with 100% of the vote.


Elsewhere, McCain does better against Obama in Eastern Europe and South America. More McCain support there than in the United States where he only gets 21%, according to those that subscribe to the economist and have voted.

What are you talking about? The only red area I see on that map is Greece. And of course Andorra and Macedonia.. but "McCain does better against Obama in Eastern Europe and South America" doesn't make sense to me.

He does better against Obama in Eastern Europe and South America relative to the other regions of the world. He only leads in Macedonia and Andorra though.

Am I missing something? South America looks all blue to me. Eastern Europe.. except for those 2 tiny countries, it's all blue. So I don't understand how you say McCain does better against Obama in those continents.

If on average McCain is only getting 20% support in Western Europe, 15% support in Africa, 10% support in Oceania, but 25% support in Eastern Europe and 30% support in South America, then he is doing better against Obama in Eastern Europe and South America relative to the other regions of the world.

You have to look at the actual percentages to see the difference. For example, McCain has 21% support in the United States, but 35% support in Poland, 25% support in Brazil, and 50% support in El Salvador.

Ah ok.. looking at percentages, yes. He does relatively better but Obama still wins overall in those continents too!

That a funny website. Probably pretty reflective of the whole world. It's kinda sad. I bet alot of people would prefer McCain to Bush though!

You mean Albania. Greece is below and only has 11% voting for McCain.

Doesn't surprise me really. Neither does it that McCain is doing relatively better in Eastern Europe.
Andorra is funny, but who cares for that state.
