World supports Obama against Romney in U.S. presidential polls
Washington, United States (4E) – According to a poll, a majority of people across the world wants Barack Obama to be re-elected as United States’ next president against his Republican challenger Mitt Romney.
Pakistan was the only country among 21 countries being questioned for the survey that wanted to see Romney as winner in November 6 elections. Obama received strongest support from France with a 72% approval rating.
A total of 21,797 people have been questioned for the survey. Out of whom, 50% supported Obama, while only 9% favored Romney. GlobeScan/PIPA carried out the survey for the BBC World Service between July 3 and September 3 before the start of TV debates between presidential candidates.
Meanwhile, nearly two weeks before the elections, President Obama on Wednesday began an eight-state, 7,660-mile, 40-hour tour to seek voters’ support for a second term.
Earlier in Dayton, Ohio, Obama described the election as a matter of trust, warning Americans against unreliable and elusive challenger Mitt Romney.
