Well, at least India is happy...

According to an article that appeared in the Christian Science Monitor, a majority of the people of India are very happy that Bush won a second term as President of the United States. In a recent poll, 62% of Indians answered "postive" to the question "Do you think [President Bush's reelection] is positive or negative for peace and security in the world?" Only 27% responded "negative" and the rest weren't really sure one way or the other.

India was one of only three countries polled where there was a favorable response towards four more years of Bush. Poland and the Phillipines were the other two.

On the other hand, only 4% of the respondants in Mexico were "positive" concerning George W., and 58% were definately "negative."

But in Turkey, Bush is 50% more popular than in Mexico, gaining a large 6% "positive" rating. However, there were quite a few who were not so sure about George, and 82% responded "negative;" the largest negative response in any country surveyed...
