If the world could vote?

What would happen if the world could vote in the US presidential elections?

Who is behind the site?

Just three guys from Iceland. The site is independent from all political parties, companies or hidden agendas. It's just an idea a 22 yo guy in Iceland came up with and executed with a little help from a couple of friends.

Why are you doing this?

Just out of curiosity. The president of the United States is a powerful man, probably the most powerful person on the planet. So everyone seems to have an opinion on who should be the next president of the United States. We thought it would be interesting to see who would be the next president if the whole world could vote. It's also a challenge to try to beat the number of voters in the last US elections. So spread the news!

How many times can I vote?

Only once. Each computer can only vote once. Yes you can clear your cookies and vote again, but we have a script(called the Psychic Monkey) that looks for multiple votes and specific voting patterns and deletes fake votes before we publish the results.

I'm from the U.S, can i vote?

Of course you can, that will only make it more interesting to see how the U.S would vote in relations to the rest of the world.

Where are the other candidates?

Unfortunately it is clear that either of these two will become president. Although the 3rd party candidates have a theoretical change, that wont happen. And since we are not giving the world a real chance to vote, we want to see which one of these two the world wants. If we do this again though, we will include the 3rd party candidates.

Do you really think the world should be able to vote?

No i don't! The United States of America is an independent country. The website focuses on what would happen IF the world could vote. And lets not forget, we are only doing this for fun. Just to get the worlds opinion.

Where can I get updates?

You can sign up for our group on Facebook or check for updates on the Marketing Safari blog.

Who's paying for all this?

You are! The hosting is paid for by the Google ads on the bottom of the site. All work is voluntary.

How can I help?

You can help by telling your friends and family about the site, blog about it, digg it, stumble it, share it on Facebook etc. On the front page is a button called Share this. You can use that to give the site a vote on soial media sites or send an email to all your friends to tell them about your site.
