A majority of 22,000 polled globally said that President George W Bush's (re)election makes the world more dangerous, and reflects poorly on the average citizen of the United States.
The British broadcaster found that residents of India, the Philippines, and Poland disagree that Bush's reelection makes the world unsafe.
Twenty-one nations were included in the survey, 58 percent of those polled said the world is more dangerous as a result of Bush's November win in the United States. New Yorkers however voted Bush out of office 83 (Sen. John Kerry) - 15 (Pres. George W Bush) - 2 (other.) For residents of the United States 56 percent tell New Yorkers to shut-up... they like Bush and say his re-election is good for the country. (Even though New York City is still waiting for the 9/11 cleanup funds promised by Bush in 2001.)
Great Britain, France, and Germany -- long seen allies of the United States -- found high negative results for Bush's re-election at 64, 75, and 77 percent respectively.
Italy and Australia, two countries working with the United States in Iraq, also felt Bush's re-election makes the world more dangerous, but Turkey ranked highest overall in opposition to Bush -- and closer to New York's sentiment -- with 82 percent favoring Bush's removal from office. Latin America gave thumbs down to Bush as well.
Feelings towards the citizens of the United States run negative as 42 percent of those polled saying Bush's re-election made them feel worse towards citizens of the United States.
Since New York City remains a top terrorist target in the United States and thus would be paying the price for further actions of Bush; it should be clear to the world that New Yorkers exceed all nations in thought to remove Bush from office.
The BBC survey was conducted between 15 November 2004 and 5 January 2005.
