MADRID- More than half of Spaniards, or 54 percent, are unhappy with US President George W Bush winning a second term in office, according to a poll published by a radio station.

The poll, carried out by left-leaning Spanish radio station Cadena Ser, showed that only 16 percent backed Bush's re-election on 2 November and 22 percent were indifferent.

Of those questioned, 53 percent felt the world would not be a safer place with Bush in office for another four years compared to 10 percent who felt the contrary.

As to the Spanish government's frosty relations with Washington since Socialist Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero was elected last March, 42 percent felt ties must be mended while 40 percent disagreed.

Sixty three percent said they did not believe the Iraqi conflict would be resolved peacefully.

The poll was conducted on 4 November and involved 1,000 people.
