90 percent of Europeans would vote for Obama: poll
Reuters ^ | October 31, 2012 | By Peter Schwartzstein, London

Posted on 10/31/2012 3:10:01 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

More than 90 percent of northern Europeans would vote for President Barack Obama if they were able to cast ballots in the United Sates' election next week because they see Mitt Romney as too right wing, British pollster YouGov said on Wednesday.

While U.S. polls show Obama and Romney are heading for a photo finish, European voters in seven northern European countries expressed overwhelming support for the Hawaiian-born 51-year-old White House incumbent.

In a Europe grappling with economic crisis and welfare systems that bond investors say are unsustainable, the rhetoric of the U.S. presidential race simply does not press the same buttons.

"Accusations of socialism (against Obama) don't exactly resonate somewhere like Denmark," Twyman said.

Which is why we should have abandoned Europe to the Soviet Union after WWII. Which is why we should abandon NATO and not come to their rescue as Putin/Russia and/or the Muslims gobble them up.

A retired Belgian that I helped to move here (Philippines),
just returned from a trip back home.
As with most Europeans, he seems quite sure that Obozo will
be reelected.
I commented that Europeans want Obama simply because they want America brought down to the low level of Europe.

Yougov does internet polling which it then tweaks in order to put it in line with other polls, plus or minus some fudge factor. Since few other companies have polled Europeans for their reactions with respect to Romney and Obama, and there is no way to tell at the polls, these numbers are essentially pulled out of the air.

[ 90% of Europeans resent us. Effem. ]

People always resent those who give them free crap... and we have given Europe “protection” for the last 60 years so they could use their own money instead for socialism.

We were too damn nice after WWII and the cold war. We should have let Russia march over them in 10 years and then kicked Russia back in the mid 50’s and then said “Hey dumb ass Europeans, you learn anything yet?”

And let them know they better get their poop in a group or we start adding stars to our flag...

Europe has been one of the world’s major sources of Socialism, Fascism and Communism. My grandpa got to kick their asses in WWI, my dad got to do it in WWII, and I never got to do it. I want my shot! We’ve kicked their asses before and I’ll enjoy doing it again.

To All Europeans.....not just Northern Europeans:

Your economies are largely in shambles. The Eurozone has become a pathetic joke. Socialism has bankrupted you, and only NOMINALLY “worked” in racially-homogeneous countries like the Nordics.

Let us dump Detroit, Cleveland, Washington, DC (PLEASE!), Newark, Chicago, Atlanta, and New Orleans onto your doorsteps, for starters....then let’s see just how well Socialism works for ya, k?

You pride yourselves on being “post-Christian”, which means nothing more than you’re thumbing your noses at God and His Risen Son. Yeah.....great move.

You can have the Muslim Kenyan son-of-a-bitch. A pox on all of you.

Just don’t come to us AGAIN to save your sorry asses.

90% of Europeans also:

1) Would have surrendered to the Soviets in a heartbeat had the US not had military there.

2) Let the Religion of Peace overrun Europe in the name of diversity.

It seems strange that Europeans should be polled asking who they would vote for in OUR election. I don’t think it’s common for us to be polled asking who we would for in French, German, or British elections. (Uh...Maybe because it would be irrelevant and no one should care?)

A lot depends on what happens next Tuesday. Hussein will certainly speed up the downward journey. Romney on the other hand can be “worked on” easier, but he’d have to get in the door first.

The question for the Europeans should be rephrased:

“Now that the European Parliament has made it possible for Obama to become the European President, and invited him to do so when he leaves office in America, and he has expressed interest in becoming the European President, do you think they should appoint him to the job?”

I imagine their responses would be hilarious.
