LONDON - In what has become an annual report, the BBC has published the results of an opinion poll detailing how the rest of the world would vote if they could vote in US elections.

Of nearly 22,000 people surveyed in 21 countries, Pakistan is the only country that would readily elect Mitt Romney as president. “An average of 50 per cent favoured Mr Obama, with nine per cent for Mr Romney,” the poll found. France was the most pro-Obama of the lot while Canada voted about 65 per cent in favour of Obama and nine per cent in favour of Romney.

The survey was conducted by GlobeScan/PIPA between 3 July and 3 September.
