It seems that most people around the world widely expect the next POTUS (President of the United States) to better U.S. policies toward the rest of the world, especially if Barack Obama is elected.
The chart shows global views on economics and the U.S. presidential race. Here are a few facts:
- 77% of the Japanese surveyed have more confidence in Barak Obama to handle world affairs properly.
- 83% of the Japanese are closely following the U.S. presidential election.
- Many in Japan, Turkey, Russia, South Korea and Mexico said the election would change little.
- Hillary Rodham Clinton, who lost the Democratic nomination to Obama, generally was rated higher than McCain overseas but lower than Obama!
