Nations of the world prefer John Kerry by a margin of 30-3 in recent poll

A recent poll indicates John Kerry would be far more likely than George W. Bush to generate cooperative alliances across the globe.

The majority of people in 30 out of 35 countries surveyed want Kerry to be the next U.S. president, according to recent survey reported by theAFP wire service.

In the survey, President George W. Bush was "rebuffed" by all of America's traditional allies, the AFP reports. "On average, Senator Kerry was favored by more than a two-to-one margin -- 46 percent to 20 percent, the survey by GlobeScan Inc, a global research firm, and the local University of Maryland, showed."

Only three countries preferred Bush: the Philippines, Nigeria and Poland. In Indian and Thailand, opinions were divided. The poll contacted 34,330 people.

Opinions against George. W. Bush were particularly high all Western Europe, including Britain, where respondents favored Kerry by a 31 percent margin. Canadians favor Kerry over Bush by a nearly four-to-one margin. In Japan, Kerry was preferred by a 20 percent margin.
