A recent world opinion poll shows Pakistan, in sharp contrast to other countries polled, with higher approval ratings for Republican presidential contender Romney over President Obama.

The BBC World Service opinion poll surveyed 21,797 people in 21 countries.

None of the other countries surveyed is the site of known CIA or U.S. military drone attacks.

Looking at all the survey results, an average of 50% favored Obama compared to 9% for Romney. The highest support for Obama was in France followed by Australia.
