With Russia, Central Asia and the Balkans in favor of Donald Trump
On the eve of the US Presidential election, it appears that the consensus of citizens throughout the world is that a Hillary Clinton Presidency is the favored outcome on November 8. This is the result of a historic global sentiment poll conducted on almost 100 leading news sites around the world by Showt (pronounced “Shout”) Limited, creator of the world’s first Instant Global Voting platform, where everyone can express their positive or negative opinion about nearly anyone or anything.
The total global ShowtCount results since Showting began in early September show 71% Yes Showts for Hillary Clinton and 43% Yes Showts for Donald Trump. This pro-Clinton sentiment has strengthened in the past 24 hours with 75% Yes Showts for Clinton as compared with 37% Yes Showts for Trump.
Michael March, Showt Co-Founder and CEO said, “The election of the US President has a potential impact on everyone on the planet. Showt provided, for the first time ever, a way for people from every country in the world to participate in this historic election and have their voices heard.”
Mr. March continued, “Through Clinton-Trump Showt we intend to build awareness of the full Showt experience available on our apps and at Showt.com where people express a simple Yes or No opinion about celebrities, athletes and other public figures, brands, organizations, pretty much everyone and everything they care about in their lives, and receive a ShowtBack reply to their Yes or No Showt.”
Russia and Balkans Trends:
With people in over 210 countries Showting both Yes and No for the candidates, Showt has been able to identify geographic trends in their respective popularity. Notably, the Balkan states: Bosnia & Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Slovenia, have all shown strong support for Trump. Perhaps not surprising is the significantly positive view of Trump amongst Russian internet users who have Showted Yes 83% of the time, with 81% Showting No for Clinton.
European (excluding the Balkans) Trends:
Much of the rest of Europe, however, has expressed pro-Clinton sentiment. The prospective first female US President has strong support in Albania (83% Yes Showts), Belgium (78%), Ukraine (77%), Ireland (75%), Spain (72%), Malta (70%) and the UK (65%). Several countries, as appears to be the case in official polling in the US, appear divided in their views on the two candidates, with a less than 5% difference in Yes Showts for Clinton and Trump in France, Germany, Austria, Cyprus and several other nations.
Latin America Trends:
Hillary Clinton is the clear favorite in all Latin American countries, except Bolivia and Suriname. There is a greater than 25% difference in Yes Showting in favor of Clinton in most of these countries, including Argentina, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. Brazil has a 16% pro-Clinton spread in Yes Showt sentiment, with Chileans favoring Clinton by only 4%.
Perhaps not surprising given Trump’s statements about Mexican immigrants and his position that he will build a strong wall on the US-Mexican border that Mexico will pay for, Mexicans are Showting 96% Yes for Clinton and 90% No for Trump.
On the other side of the US border, however, the Canadians are divided much like their US counterparts, with Clinton receiving 59% Yes Showts to Trump’s 58%.
Clinton is also leading in Yes Showts in most African countries, with the notable exceptions of Egypt (57% Yes Showts for Trump, 48% for Clinton), Liberia (80% Yes Showts for Trump, 36% for Clinton) and South Africa (72% Yes Showts for Trump, 38% for Clinton).
The sentiment is mixed in Asia, with strong support for Clinton in Afghanistan, Indonesia, India, South Korea, Pakistan, Taiwan and Thailand, with equally strong Trump support in the Philippines, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Sri Lanka.
Showters in both Australia and New Zealand favor Clinton, with Australia giving her 63% Yes Showts to 56% for Trump, and New Zealand more heavily favoring Clinton, Showting 68% Yes to her and 48% Yes to Trump. South Pacific Islanders are also generally more supportive of Clinton.
