According to a Wikopedia article on George W. Bush, which quotes a Globescan survey

A July and August 2004 survey by the University of Maryland and GlobeScan, Inc. of 34,330 people in 35 nations found that, in 30 out of 35 countries polled, a majority or plurality would prefer to see Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry win in the 2004 election.

Also other allies such as Japan (43% to 23%), Mexico (38% to 18%), Turkey (40% to 25%) and South-Africa (43% to 29%). The only countries where President Bush was preferred by a majority were the Philippines, Nigeria, and Poland. India and Thailand were divided.
