Russia Loves Donald Trump

Russia loves Donald trumpMost other G20 countries around the world favor Clinton over Trump but not Russia. looking at the image above you can see that Clinton has a lead over Trump in almost every other G20 country. unsurprisingly Clinton has the biggest lead in Mexico, the country that the Donald wants to wall of from the USA. Even china prefers Clinton over Donald but not Russia.

I guess the Russians love their flamboyant, over the top, strongman heads of state. In some ways the Donald is like America’s version of Putin and so it makes sense that the Russians would gravitate towards him.

One interesting point is that Canada is near the bottom of approving of Hillary over Trump. Being 3rd from the bottom is probably showing that Canada is not totally won over by the Clinton marketing machine and is more conservative than they are given credit for.

World Map

A simple World Map

Above we have a simple World Map with continents and Regions in different colors. Here at “Map of Europe” we realized that many users coming to our site wanted to look at a map of the world and the continents and regions.

Continental borders are a little ambiguous and fluid at the moment and we tried to cater for this by adding some regions.

Below is a list continental border anomalies.

  • Western Russia is marked as being part of Asia even though generally it is considered part of Europe. We did this because we felt there was room on the web for a simpler version of a world map, one that ignored some of the border ambiguities.
  • We have added the Middle East as a region. This was due to many users emailing us and asking how does the middle east relate to the rest of the world.
  • Australasia is marked in aqua and this region is sometimes referred to as Oceania. This is not stricvtly accurate but like we said above these matters are somewhat ambiguous. Strictly seaking the content is genrally referred to as just Australia.
  • Egypt is marked as Part of Africa above. While this is strictly correct it could have also fallen in under the region of the Middle East.

This map is not meant to be a definitive or even strictly accurate depiction of the world. As we said earlier that tends to be fluid anyway. This map is meant to be a quick reference guide for students and teachers to use when doing geography or cartography on the fly.
