PARIS - Happy Election Day, America! Happy American Election Day, World!

Still undecided? Still hungry for poll numbers?? Still there???

Worldcrunch is here to help.

In particular, with our news partners from around the world, we have kept a close eye on how non-Americans have been covering the U.S. campaign: from the Italian correspondent trying to figure out Ohio to the French dissecting the meaning of "Republicanism" to the Beijing newspaper asking why Asian-Americans were getting so little attention from Obama and Romney.

Use Tuesday, when there's little left to do but wait for the only poll that matters, to explore our special coverage:
