Obama favored over McCain in world poll
by UPI

WASHINGTON -- U.S. polls indicate a tight race between Sen. John McCain and Sen. Barack Obama but international surveys indicate Obama is heavily favored.

In 21of 24 nations polled by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, respondents said Obama, D-Ill., and the presumptive Democratic nominee, would more likely "do the right thing regarding world affairs" than his presumptive GOP challenger John McCain, R-Ariz., USA Today reported Friday.

"Obama obviously has an appeal that has crossed the waters," said Andrew Kohut, who oversaw the Pew survey. "Some of it may have to do with his being associated with opposition to the war in Iraq ... Some of it may have to do with his charismatic qualities and the fact that he's different than the typical American presidential candidate."

Obama was viewed in most countries as more trusted than U.S. President George Bush, the survey indicated. In France, where Bush visited Friday, 84 percent of respondents said they had some or "a lot" of confidence in Obama to do the right thing in world affairs, compared to 13 percent who said Bush would.

In 20 nations, more say U.S. foreign policy would improve when the new president takes office. Only Jordan, Pakistan, Egypt and Lebanon indicated it would worsen.

  • Why is it that the entire news media will not publish anything negative about Obama, you in fact used to be a upstanding paper that was on the side of truth, now you are right there with all the rest of the media and will do and say anything weather true or not to hurt the Republican party. The so called American Democrat Obama, who has been a joke to politics and you guys are the butt of this joke as time will tell. Stand behind him till he's elected and when things go bad for the American people because you ( the media ) picked a radical to lead the U.S. You will be judged for your roll. History will speak of the time when the media choose this guy ( weathere he wins or not) and when your sales and advertising go away and everybody is blaming you, will he return the favor and bail you out. ( I think not ). And you'll have nobody to blame but yourselves !!!!!
