Unofficial American Presidential Poll
If Europeans were to decide the next American President, they would overwhelmingly choose to elect Obama rather than Bush. So far not a single person I’ve talked to would vote for Bush for a third term. And who’s that other fellow who’s running?
My personal choice is to vote for whoever has the most integrity and will make choices that I would agree with if I had that level of information. Too many people think that what they hear or read about, often in highly partial tones, is the only relevant information.
I try to point these things out and to explain that there’s really not a candidate that most Americans would say represents all of their views and opinions. That’s an argument in favor of having more parties as they do in most places in Europe.
FYI, I don’t want to come across like I’m making fun of the Europeans (and some other nationalities) I’ve met on my trip who don’t realize that Bush can’t be re-elected. Americans just take it for granted that no President can be elected to more than 2 terms, but I nearly always have to point that out over here.
