USA 2012: Time for Elections

“America is looking for a populist,” is the conclusion of a survey describing American voters' sentiment less than a year prior the presidential elections, according to NBC News/Wall Street Journal. The poll says that 76% of respondents think that the present economic structure of the country is “out of balance,” serving mostly the rich and not the majority of people. More that half of all interviewed – a 53% - agree that the national debt should be curbed by cutting spending and the size of government. Interestingly enough, 40% of surveyed say that the economic system is unfair but also think that the government should be downgraded, which reveals both leftist and rightist sentiments.

Indicative for the electorate’s bad mood is that half of the poll’s participants identify with the Occupy Wall Street movement and the other half - with the so called Tea Party movement, which sporadically protests against Obama’s government and his politics of stimulating the economy by using the federal budget; 4% of all respondents sympathise with both initiatives simultaneously.

Who will the Americans choose – a Republican or a Democrat? There is no other alternative for the moment; the present resident of the White House is blamed for all USA problems, both from the Republicans - for spending the budget - and his fellow Democrats - for failing short of Americans’ expectations to firmly subdue Wall Street and the banks. One thing is for sure - America is angry and is desperately seeking for a candidate-populist, who will answer its hopes for social justice and at the same time save the US from the economic crisis. In this subject euinside will follow the complicated US electoral process until a new President is elected on November 6, 2012.

#EUCO This afternoon, in Brussels, will begin the last EU summit this year. It will be the first that will work on Donald Tusk's Leaders' Agenda (details in the link below). In his agenda two topics are planned for the December European Council - migration and the future of the EMU. Both have already created strong tensions between Tusk and the Commission after the European Council president came up with documents of his own, which are much more reduced than those of the Commission, and reactions in the building across the street were furious. The leaders will mark the launch by 25 member states of PESCO at a special ceremony today. Leaders will be joined by NATO secretary general to discuss EU-NATO cooperation. Leaders are also expected to extend sanctions against Russia after hearing a report by Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Progress on the Brexit negotiations will be discussed on Friday. This is one of the toxic issues on the agenda. On Friday will take place also the expanded euro area summit, which is open for non-euro countries as well. Stay tuned for details and live updates throughout the day and tomorrow! euinsi.de/0Dcy
