A BBC poll somewhat unsurprisingly finds that most of the international community still wants Barack Obama to win the election over Mitt Romney.

According to the poll, which surveyed over 21,000 people in 21 countries, 50 percent preferred Obama and nine percent preferred Romney.

Pakistan was the only country surveyed that preferred Romney win over Obama.
