Poll numbers released Friday show that a majority of business executives surveyed from around the world show that the contingent thinks the global economy will perform better if President Obama is reelected this November. 

Out of a pool of 1,700 respondents polled by the Financial Times, 42.7 percent said Obama would be better for the world’s economy, while just 20.5 percent choose Mitt Romney as the better option. The remaining respondents said neither candidate would be better.

According to Reuters, the global response differed from U.S. poll results as a small majority said they think Romney will have the best policies for their businesses.

The poll was conducted before Romney named Paul Ryan as his running mate. However, a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Monday showed that Romney's pick did not give him an immediate boost in confidence among voters.
