A global poll conducted by a network of leading pollsters reveals that the American Presidential Election is arousing widespread engagement across the world, where a vast majority is keen to tell pollsters their favourite between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The poll carried out among 45 countries, covering nearly 75% of world population shows that Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump in all but one country, Russia . She is remarkably popular in Western Europe, Latin America and Africa. Donald Trump is popular in Russia and China. The findings of the global poll were discussed last week in New Orleans, USA at the Annual Congress of ESOMAR, an international professional association of marketing and opinion researchers. The poll was carried out during August and September among a total of 44,194 men and women and its detailed findings are available at (www.Gallup-international.com), website of the independent polling network, WIN/Gallup International Association (not related to Gallup Inc., headquartered in Washington D.C).
Among those polled, 69% said it made a high or very high impact on their countries as to who gets elected the President of the United States. On matters of public policy, the majority of 78 % across the globe advised the next American President not to be swayed by local American interests alone, but to either focus on the interests of the entire world, or to give equal priority to both local and global concerns. Only 16 % of the global public advised the next American president to put America first and disregard global interests. The American public on the other hand is much more in favour of an American-centric policy, this view being held by 61% of American citizens.
Commenting on the findings of the global poll, Vilma Scarpino, President of WIN/Gallup International Association, said: “Given that the world has become globalized and America leads it in economic and military matters, the American Presidential elections arouse a very interesting and meaningful global public policy debate. Our poll however reveals big gaps in the views of the global public and the American public”.
