Bush and world opinion

No wonder the misapprehended world itself is undergoing a quiet revolution against Bush in the realm of public opinion. Among the 34,330 people in thirty-five countries polled by the Program on International Policy Attitudes, majorities in only three---Nigeria, Poland and the Philippines---favored the President's re-election. Four of five people preferred Senator John Kerry. The Administration has sought through international propaganda efforts (especially in the Middle East) to win the earth's peoples to join it in its fantasy world. But the world lives in the real world, and is unmoved.
