global, completely non-biased electorate

What would the rest of the world vote in the US prez elections? The Economist has a poll which seems to indicate what I've taken to calling "a Fox News toss-up" (Republican: 38 electoral votes, Obama: 8.897 - no, really). McCain carries some interesting countries. I get that he carries Georgia and Moldova, and sort of get Macedonia - I reckon it has to do with having looked into Putin's eyes and watching for Putin as he rears his head into American airspace. But what is up with Cuba leaning McCain? Are they that tired of this whole socialism thing, or does it merely have something to do with the statistical methods of this completely unbiased sampling of completely random and representative The Economist readers from across the world?

...And speaking of a poll of economists.
