...Kerry would win by a landslide.
80% vs 8%

CPOD
Aug. 10, 2004 If they could participate in the United States presidential election, a large number of Germans would choose John Kerry, according to a poll released by ARD in newscast Tagesschau. 80 per cent of respondents say they would vote for the Democratic nominee.

Republican incumbent George W. Bush garners the support of eight per cent of respondents.


I know that the Germans and French don't like George Bush but that's still a pretty big gap.

I guess Norm MacDonald will have to change his line from 'Germans love David Hasselhoff' to 'Germans love John Kerry'

But if David Hasselhoff was running against John Kerry they would vote him in a landslide over Kerry.

Thank God Germans dont vote for any country but their own.

But, so far, only US citizen can vote in Presidential elections. I'm not sure why it is important to know how citizens of other countries would vote in OUR election.

Would the Germans care how we would vote in their elections?

I am beginning to really dislike polls...and it's not even Labor Day

If this isn't grasping at straws, I don't know what is.

So the Germans would vote for kerry, well *newsflash* so would the British, The Dutch the Spanish the Norwegians etc etc etc. Get the point? Most of the world wants to see the back of Bush.

I don't think anyone should really care about who they would vote for but it gives an idea of how those in other countries feel about the current leader of the free world.

Hooo Boy! I am at the edge of my seat with worry because the Spainish don't like Bush. Boo Hoo.

Germans?They LOVED CLINTON. What does that tell ya?

The Spainish government collapsed under 1 friggin bombing. Horrible number of deaths but the people ran like children in a rain storm and please don't tell me you think Al Qeida won't go after them? Great allies.

Thankfully they dont vote. If Bush was actually good for America, theyd still want him gone.

Interesting, seeing how I could care less who they vote for or who they put in power, each new leader dealt with accordingly.

Hehehehehehe. Now I remeber why I hardly care of world opinion towards the US.

The Irish loved Clinton too. He actual made a good effort to complete the peace process in the north. Bushs attitude of letting Europe take care of Europe at the start of his reign didnt set well over here.

What most Irish people see when they see Bush and the war in Iraq is another instance of a occupying country brutally stamping down and controlling the populace of a weaker country. Yeah good job you got rid of Sadam, something that should have been done first time around. But why did you do it now? There wasn't any justification except the lies about WMD and the phantom threat of Sadam launching biological or chemical missles at Israel.

My take on this is, Bush=slightly-crazy not exceptionally smart liar being led around by his much more experienced and hawkish staff / Kerry=Whimpy liar who expertly and with a early showing of political cunning fabricated a good portion of his career in the military, however he suffers from the Clintonesque problem unable to move against popular opinion and do whats needed without checking the polls first.

Neither one should be President but one of them is bound to be. We need a third choice.

I don't get you...I just got done reading about how you think Bush and America had no right to invade Iraq (see:Sadam is being persecuted unfairly - www.abovetopsecret.com...), and now it seems like you are defending Bush and condeming the Spanish for leaving the fight in Iraq. What gives?

The countries I named were at random, name any group of others, the answer will be the same. I love the way Americans complain about no one liking them and in the same breath vilify other countries. That and admitting you don't care what the rest of the world thinks and then still wondering why they don't like you. By 'you' I mean the government, no one has a problem with another countries population, unless of course youre an American talking about the French.


The Irony.

More and more the true 'do I say not I do' idiom becomes clear. I'd bet my house if the UK hadn't joined in this Iraq fallacy wed all be tea drinking crumpet munching apologists or some such nonsense by now.

I don't get this "screw the rest of the world" attitude you people have. Seriously what do you get out of it? Does it make you feel better? Does if give you a sense of superiority? USA NUMBER ONE DURRRRR..... God forbid anyone criticise our country. The US isn't part of the world and what we do doesn't affect the rest of the world right?

God I hate you people sometimes....

I don't understand why SOME Americans don't care about what other countries think of them either??

Britian would vote Bush out, I know that for sure! Here, nothing has more comedy value then The curent President Of The United States.

Well, to tell you the truth, i really dont care what other countries think of us. never have. never will. And yes, i vilify other countries. They are guilty of the same crimes we have and continue to commit. No one is innocent, so no one will be spared.

And my view, we should have left saddam in power. There was a friggin reason that country had a dictator. Obviously, most Americans were ignorant to what they were dealing with. They have never been to the middle east to see what kind of mentality they are dealing with.

I dont care who supported us or who didnt. I simply do not care what other countries think. I only care what my leaders do in reference to the welfare of this country. Alliance with Europe was not it. Niether was nam or Iraq.

And of course, given the history of who Germans have voted for, I snicker...........

If everyone thought like you the world would be in an even worse position. I care about my country, I also care about what my country does to others, that is because I care about my fellow man. To only be concerned about your own only builds walls and boarders around your BRAIN! I can tell you clearly can't see past your own boarders, which is a limit to your take on the whole world.

Start caring more about Earth as a whole and less about that land mass called the USA. Because if Earth gets f**ked up, WE ALL get f**ked up!!!!

ps: the Germans were being MASS brainwashed, a bit like you are with bush now.

Skadi, the world knows most Americans don't care. It only really pisses people off when they pretend they do. When it comes to the welfare of your own country, I agree with you. There shouldn't be outside influence. Britain knows it only too well having US policy so overbearing on our own, far more than the US can complain about outside influence. The fact is that America is the one with the most overbearing influence on other countries, so while America has the luxury of not giving a #, the rest of the world has to care about what America wants. Doesnt make for congenial relations.
Wither we like it or not were all on this ball together.

Whoever that is with the migraine avatar, I cant read your name, check out the list of countries by standard of living and tell me how that compares.
