Dear America, the Rest of the World Says: Choose Obama

LONDON, November 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

When asked who they would choose if they could vote for either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney, the majority in almost every country favoured Obama. The overall score being 81% in favour of the current president and just 19% preferring the Republican challenger Romney.

China is the only country that would prefer Romney as the next President of the United States, giving him 52% of the vote compared to 48% for Obama.

In Britain Obama grabbed a whopping 85% of the vote.

Duncan Hooper, managing editor of MSN News & Sport, says: "Mitt Romney lost all hope of winning Britons' hearts after suggesting the country wasn't ready to host the Olympics. He made so many gaffes during a visit to London that it became known as the 'Romneyshambles'.

"On the other hand, Barack Obama is still remembered as the man who represented a significant and welcome change in direction after the much maligned George W Bush's eight years in the White House. Obama's struggles on the domestic scene have gone largely unreported over here compared with his dignified and well-timed overseas visits."

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
