Global Electoral College
Building on the other blog discussion we had about the U.S election in the global media (and by the way, anyone else really upset the debate on Friday may not happen?), The Economist website has an interesting little online tool called the "Global Electoral College". It sets up every country with a number of electoral votes and shows who those votes would go for. You can pretty much guess the outcomes in most countries, but it's still a fascinating idea - what if the whole world was allowed to vote for the U.S president, if it truly was a global election?
