But Kristen Neel, an 18-year-old Republican from Georgia received a tirade of responses from tweeters who pointed out that Australia has an atheist, female Prime Minister.
She was just one of dozens of Romney supporters who claimed they would move to Australia if Obama was re-elected.
"I'm moving to Australia because their president is a Christian and actually supports what he says," she tweeted.
"Our Prime Minister is a woman, an atheist who lives with a man she hasn't married. I don't think you’d like it here," tweeted Ian Cuthbertson, the TV editor at The Australian.
But other tweeters were not as sympathetic.
"Congratulations on being the dumbest person in the world," tweeted @Patrickavenell.
BuzzFeedgathered the best 37 tweets of Americans moving to Australia if Obama won.
"My mom says we are moving to Australia if Obama wins," tweeted @TheBeebs3.
And @Chuck_Addis tweeted, "If Obama wins I will make my family move to Australia, not becoming a communist. End of story."
