    Unfortunate that the rest of the world is not voting in our election.

Go Obama!

    So Romney is preferred in Pakistan, and maybe the U.S.? scary.

I wish America was closer to Canada's numbers. The problem I see is Obama's inability to separate his term into 2 parts. The first 2 years where he fixed the hole Bush dug, and the last 2 where he dropped the unemployment rate 2 %, and created 5 million jobs.

If you take the whole 4 years, we would have 7.8% unemployment, and not much job growth, but if we stop and assume that Bush won't ruin the economy before Obama starts his next term, we should expect to see similar results that we have been getting the last 2 years. If you double that over 4 years, instead of just the last 2.. we could see a 4% drop in unemployment, and 10 million jobs created.

Here in MI, we actually have co.'s importing people to work, because we do not have enough educated workers. So when Obama says we need more education to increase job growth, it's true. We have 50K IT jobs in SE Michigan that sit unfilled. The jobs are there, we just need to train the workforce, so they don't fill them from foreign countries.

Obama's first term can be summed up in this sentence. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Which of these you think it will be in the next term, will decide your vote. I voted for Obama already. I think the improvements of the last 2 years will continue, and things will continue to get better. Maybe even speed up.

If he wins, he will have to deliver, or Republicans will win easily in 2016.

I have to say the 72% -3 % split in France makes me chuckle. I don't think Obama has been that great, but a 60-40 win would restore some of my faith in American voters.
