Finns Would Vote for Obama if They Could

If Finns could decide the next President of the United States, the job would go to Senator Barack Obama, according to a new poll. Rival Senator John McCain would only win 13 percent of the vote.

According to the survey commissioned by Reader's Digest and conducted by the Gallup Organisation, Obama would run away with 71 percent of Finns' votes.

McCain's highest popularity rating was credited to Centre Party supporters, 23 percent of whom would vote for the Republican candidate. Fourteen percent of National Coalition supporters would also vote for him, as would 11 percent of Social Democrats.

The same questions were asked of citizens in 16 other countries. Obama took the vote in every one. People in the Netherlands were the biggest Obama supporters, and would hand him 92 percent of the vote.

The survey carries a margin of error of three percentage points.
