Bush Supporting Americans!

Just a question to everyone here in the UK. Has anyone actually met a :evil: Bush :twisted: -supporting American?

I'm half american, and have lived and travelled overseas all my life, and I can safely say I have never met more than 1 or 2 (not including tourists from Texas). Just curious.

I'm from Canada originally and on my visits back I have met Bush supporting Canadians, but they were a very very small percentile.

I think the UK seems to be the most anti-Bush of the US/Canada/UK. But in all three of these countries it is the norm to dislike Bush. If you drop anti-Bush comments in the company of others you can presume they all feel the same way and that you won't be inciting any political debate :D

I'm not a political expert by any means but I fail to see how the election is going to be close? If last time it was pretty much right on the line how can Bush win this time? There are so many motivated Bush haters out there lining up votes and getting people to go out and vote that it seems Kerry should be able to win. Unless all those Kerry people are just making more noise and voted Gore last time already.

I can't say I'm too excited by Kerry either, but hey that's politics....where have all the good men gone. And in retrospect were there ever any?

I too wonder why people think it will be a close one. There must be some void somewhere that is just packed full of repulican voters. I mean, your AVERAGE american is just as stupid or smart as your AVERAGE Brit or Canandian, but I would assume they would see how badly the country is doing, and now with over 1000 troops dead in the Iraq war, I hope they will wake up. Still think is should be fairly strongly in favour of the democrats. Course then again the Republicans virtually own the media. Fox, anyone?

I can vote for the first time in this election, and I happy in knowing that my vote will be against probably the worst president of the last century (he's been in charge for all of this one so far!). He's more than an idiot. He's an idiot that is making the world hate Americans.

haha, see, I would never post something like this on AnAndTech, just because those few steadfast republicans would find it out, and hunt me down. :oops:

So do you think Area 51 is packed with Bush loving automatons? The utility tunnels of NYC? Or maybe the secret is passing vote cards around with the collection plate at all the churches on election day :D

I'm not sure Bush is the worst president of the last century but it is a terrible administration. Look back and draw some parallels with someone like LBJ, he may have been even more reviled than Bush in his time by the young generation.

p.s. Don't worry I won't tell anyone on AT :D

I spoke to some business colleagues about this. Apparrently, most US citizens are very entrenched in their voting intentions. They pretty much vote for only one of Republican or Democrat all their lives. The swing vote is only around 5%.

However, the percentage that do not vote can be quite high, and thus influence the vote. From what I understand, democrats are much less likely to vote.

Its probably true that most democrats are less likely to vote than rebuplicans (part of being hippy, pot smoking rejects! haha, just kidding there) However, MOST americans belong to neither party, and simply vote one way or another without ever signing up. Good thing is, I think, that because Bush has just been so increadably shit, all those Demos who would normally not vote will take the time. There are plenty of movements to get the non-voters out to make a difference.

Also, only 3 times before in US elections has 50% or more of the 18-25 age group voted, and they already believe this time it will easily pass that number! Ah, sweet optimistic (generally liberally inclined) thinking students (and young)! Anyway, despite the polls I see Kerry (whether he is the best candidate, he is at least the better one) taking this election. that is of course as long as Bush doesn't go to war with Iran, letting him claim he needs to keep the power during wartime, the moron. Now that would be a shitty situation!

Ok, enough of politics for me today, time to find some deals!
