Washington, Oct 24 : A new poll shows that Democratic White House candidate Barack Obama enjoys overwhelming support in western Europe.

It's hardly a secret that Obama is Europe's favorite US presidential candidate, FOX News reported.

But a new poll shows that in France, just one percent of people think Obama's rival John McCain should win the White House.

By contrast, 78 percent back Obama, while 5 percent don't want either to win.

The poll found the five largest Europeans countries were unanimously behind Obama in the US race.

In Germany, McCain's support isn't much stronger. Five percent of those polled supported the Republican nominee, compared with 72 percent for Obama.

Harris Interactive conducted the poll . It comes on the heels of another survey by Reader's Digest that found Obama was the preferred candidate in 16 of 17 countries. The only country to prefer McCain is the United States.

Other US polls, however, show McCain trailing Obama.
