I already voted for NYC, but now I think the poll is flawed because there are no Chinese or Indian cities on it. Shanghai or Mumbai should definitely be choices, especially considering Jerusalem and Rome made the list. I'm not religious at all, so those cities don't mean sh*t to me.

But there is always Pueblo! Just a joke.......
Except we are talking status. Not just politics. and in relation to what other industries and economies, Washington DC does not come close to New York.

My take on the poll is what city should be the capitol of a "one world government", kind of like in Star Trek. Why I say Washington DC is the most logical choice. They already have the all the infrastructure set up and all the government buildings from the white house to the courts and the senate etc.

Again, you're only basing your argument on politics. What other entities or industries does Washington have in influence over New York, London, or Tokyo? Nothing, really.

I guess the question is are you talking the political capitol of the world or the financial capitol of the world. For example in the United States Washington DC is the political capitol while NYC is the financial capitol.

Jerusalem??? Why the hell is Jerusalem on here?? Many of the Asian cities (Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Seoul, etc.) should be on here.

No we mean influential capitol of the world. That means everything taken into account meaning culture, history, economics, media, and more and Washington DC is not on the level with New York or London or Tokyo or Paris.

Simple as this. THERE IS NO Capital of the world.
