  • The Most Irrelevant Poll Yet

       September 20, 2004

    The Program on International Policy Attitudes at the University of Maryland, released survey results last week that shows that citizens of nearly every country would vote for Kerry over Bush in overwhelming numbers.

    In 30 out of 35 countries polled, from all regions of the world, a majority or plurality would prefer to see John Kerry win the US presidential election—especially traditional US allies. The only countries where President Bush was preferred were the Philippines, Nigeria, and Poland. India and Thailand were divided.

    A couple of notes:

    1. Thanks Poland, for sticking with our President. The Poles are a gallant people, as we at Dummocrats well know.

    2. Why should we care? Should we want a President that the rest of the world feels will put their interests first, or would we be better off with a President that puts America first? And that's just in the foreign policy arena, it doesn't even begin to consider domestic issues.

    3. I don't understand the purpose of this poll. My best guess is that, with the numbers looking good for Bush, someone figured out that the most positive numbers for Kerry would be generated by people that cannot actually vote for him. Perhaps next week we'll see the long-awaited poll results from Sennett Middle School or La Petite Academy (hey, that sounds French, I'm sure those toddlers will swing to Kerry!).
