While elections are exceedingly important to Americans, three European journalists who attended a UNC Young Democrats election-results party, said many European nations also have an interest in American politics.
Matija Babic, a reporter of Croatia, said that many Europeans view American politicians as arrogant, but find Democratic views more appealing. Most Europeans are pro-Obama, he said.
“Almost everyone from Croatia would be Democrats if they were to move here” Babic
Hungarian journalist Viktor Janzso said that Europeans don’t understand American politics in depth, as it is quite a different system.
“With Obama, we feel that the new foreign policy is not as assertive as Bush’s was”
