Painting the World Red & Blue

What if the world could vote in America's 2008 presidential election? Thanks to The Economist, now they can ... sort of. The magazine has created a Global Electoral College, modeled after America's own quirky Electoral College system (click here to learn how it works). It doesn't really count for anything, but it's an interesting exercise nonetheless.

So, if you're curious about who Brazil, China, Russia, or India want as the next president of the United States, now's your chance to find out straight from them (also check out the results table). Right now, there's a shocking amount of blue on the map. Voting closes at Midnight London time on November 1, so get out the (world) vote!
