    A recent poll from the leading newspaper in my country, (The Netherlands) showed 89%! favouring Barrack Obama the next president of the USA.
    I personally support Barrack Obama also and mainly because I think the world needs a leader with power -that's yours- that can talk diplomacy, not more war. I know for sure that a whole lot of these 89%ers think exactly that same way.
    These are very dangerous times and America's foreign policy the next 4 years is obviously SO important. Many people over here like to see Barrack Obama in the office to talk some sense into the worldpolitics.
    89%! A big number, but can partially be explained by the fact that for a whole lot of dutch people America's foreign policy is their only point of interest.

    I'd like to add that in my opinion Obama is the best choice also for energy policies (Making use of the countless other sources rather then basically 1 , that's the future also making this policy even more obvious); economic policies (I think it's pretty obvious (yes again) a democrat will inject more money into the "sides" of the economic ladder and therefor will spend more dollars to "the people", rather then a repuclican who mainly poors it in from the top (which is good also, but now is not the time for the rich to get richer in America (they say)).

    Obama does support more war in Afghanistan, and also openly spoke of bombing Pakistan. All this no war with Obama talk is total BS.

    That is because you do not know the McCain energy plan it would appear, or the Republican plan for that matter. The plan is using more of our own oil while we transition into alternatives. Obama wants to do this by imposing fines on companies, while McCain wants to do it through tax breaks. Historically we can see that McCain's way is better.

    Massive government spending, which Obama has already promised in record amounts, results in higher inflation and a weaker dollar. Keynesian economics is dead.

    Here's the poll they used:

    For you to draw the conclusions you have about the two men:
    1. McCains positions and policies have been completely and intentionally misrepresented.
    2. Obama's positions and policies have been carefully packaged, marketed and sold without undergoing proper scrutiny.
    3. You didn't bother to look at both men for yourself and instead accepted what others were telling you about them.

    None of which come as a surprise since the Majority of the "Free Press" in America is in the tank for Obama.... The rest of the worlds media is made up of Socialist State Run Monopolies.... And they love fellow Socialists.

    The Netherlands must be pretty well switched on!

    I reckon if you walked down any high streets in the UK most people would be hard pushed to tell you which party McCain or Obama were in let alone what they stood for! I reckon at least a third wouldn't know who they were.

    Yes Scotsman I agree - I reckon 1/3 would say Don't Know/Don't care because, without sounding pompous, a lot of people have become utterly moronic (or maybe realised that their say in politics will probably never change very much?), and then there would be an overwhelming majority for Obama. Thats the impression I get at least.
