Blue States to the Rescue

I have mentioned before on this blog the newly-released Pew Global Attitudes Project's global poll on views of the United States. Now they have produced this handy interactive map that overlays not only views of the US but also nations’ views of the US Presidential Candidates.


Above is a picture of the map. To enjoy its interactive features click on this link.  Go to the bottom and click on the Bush, McCain and Obama tabs and watch the red (unfavorable opinions) vanish. It's amazing!
