Three European journalists attended the UNC Young Democrats election night party as observers.
Matija Babic, a Croatian reporter, said that many Europeans view American politicians as arrogant, but find Democratic views more appealing. Most Europeans are pro-President Barack 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,” Janzso said.
