If the world could cast a vote in the United States presidential election, John Kerry would beat George W. Bush by a landslide, according to a poll released on Wednesday that is described as the largest sample of global opinion on the race.

As much as Democrats would rather have the popular vote determine the President, or votes from the rest of the world, it may come as news to some that we don’t do it that way. Just an FYI.

“It is absolutely clear that John Kerry would win handily if the people of the world could vote,” said Steve Kull, director of The Program on International Policy Attitudes of the University of Maryland, a co-sponsor of the survey. “It is rather striking that just one in five people surveyed around the world support the re-election of President Bush.”

The poll of 34,330 people older than 15 from all regions of the world found that the majority or plurality of people from 32 countries prefer Kerry to Bush.

Fifteen and older, eh? Is that the voting age in all those regions of the world? Sorry, we don’t do it that way, either.

Bush might win in a landslide if all you counted were Swift Boat veterans, but so what?
