Here’s a portion of a very interesting post on Haitham’s blog(read the rest here):

“An interesting website, BetaVote tabulates straw votes for Bush and Kerry from around the world. Though unscientific, and distorted in its U.S. section by Bush unlovers, it provides a good sample of world thinking about the election…
…Among 240 countries and 419,128 global respondents, Kerry leads Bush by 88% to 11%. Here is a snap shot of the results in some of the Arab countries:

Morocco John Kerry leads by 87%
Syrian Arab Republic John Kerry leads by 79%
Egypt John Kerry leads by 77%
Sudan John Kerry leads by 75%
Oman John Kerry leads by 65%
Somalia John Kerry leads by 65%
United Arab Emirates John Kerry leads by 55%
Qatar John Kerry leads by 53%
Tunisia John Kerry leads by 53%
Jordan John Kerry leads by 51%
Saudi Arabia John Kerry leads by 49%
Bahrain John Kerry leads by 45%
Algeria John Kerry leads by 41%
Yemen John Kerry leads by 31%
Lebanon John Kerry leads by 27%
Palestinian John Kerry leads by 23%
Kuwait John Kerry leads by 17%

Oddly, Bush and Kerry are tied, in Libya, Iraq and Mauritania. They are tied also in other countries like, North Korea, Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Barbados, Cocos (keeling) Islands, Comoros, Congo, Maldives, Marshall Islands, Montserrat, Myanmar, Turkmenistan, and Niue, wherever that is….”
