In reading threads over the past few months, I am truly amazed how well versed non-US Dopers are about the coming election. I mean, seriously, I doubt many US members could tell you the names of any political leaders outside of the States, let alone their party affiliation.
Do you feel reading the SDMB has given you any added insight into the mentality of voters in the US that you would not otherwise have seen in your local press?
And has reading these threads over the past few months, and the coming months, going to make watching the results of the November election more interesting? I mean, seriously…will you be the only one in your local pub/taverna/grotto/kneipe who will say, “Holy shit…he won in Florida!” and realize the implication before the final results are in?
