This will be the first Presidential election since the U.S. Supreme Court decision, Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, gave corporations the ability to spend unlimited sums in our elections, effectively turning the race to the White House into a competition between corporate propaganda (over corporate-owned airwaves) and the will of the people.
There is no clearer proof that this is the case than two foreign polls. People who have not been similarly brainwashed by corporate money would give a landslide victory to President Obama.
The BBC had GlobeScan/PIPA conduct a poll from July 3 to September 3, 2012 in 21 countries. President Obama was the choice by 50 percent while Mitt Romney received a meager 9 percent. The balance expressed no preference. This was a large poll, encompassing 21,797 people.
A separate poll conducted for UPI by Win-Gallup International in September 2012 among 30 countries showed a stunning 81 percent preference for President Obama versus 19 percent for Romney.
