Just received this by email. Sorry if it has already been posted...quite staggering if accurate.

I read about a poll recently that said 85% of Canadians wouldn't vote for Bush if given the choice. Now look, if we don't want the Canadians to attack us, we better vote for Kerry.

or something.

sometimes i think democracy is one the most stupidiest thing ever.

i think there should be a IQ based democracy - also the candidates should have a good IQ

there should be a minimum IQ ( say 125) to be eligible to vote..

Interesting how Iraq and Afghanistan are both statistically even.

Another sketchy aspect: Pitcairn islands has 25 votes. The entire population of all the islands was 46 in July of this year, according to the CIA.

That means that over half (54.3%, actually) voted on this, on an island where they don't even have dedicated electricity, let alone internet access.

People can say they're from wherever they want. It's a totally skewed poll.

Not that I mind the results.

But it must be true, it is on the internet.


You are far more likely to trace the "votes" to a few IP address than have a true world-wide from this web page.

Oh I agree, the whole thing is completely skewed. In the US, Kerry is leading by 47%. Honestly though. There goes your credibility.

I really hope you're not referring to me, here, DaveC! This is just one of those silly things that get tossed around on email that I thought would be fun to share. Of course it's skewed...which is why I said, "if accurate". Clearly it's not. However, I would venture to say that if the world had a say, there is no way Bush would win the election.

the figures for the netherlands seem to match with another poll which was held here by the same agency who does polling for our own elections

it's a shame it doesn't mention the number of people who wouldn't vote at all or still don't know who to vote for

No no of course not. I was talking about the poll's credibility.
