I know most of the world were interested in the american election. Last night for example we were up late to watch. I have never watched that much of a foreign election than this one. Mostly you just watch the news to be updated but this time we wanted to watch the whole thing.
It`s funny this election thing. In Sweden we have two main political parties, the social democrates and the moderates ( I don`t know if moderates is an accurate translation ). The way to the election is nothing like it is in the USA. For instance, all the dirty name calling and exposing of secrets would never happen. I remember at one Trump convent the audience shouted “Lock her up” regarding something Hillary Clinton had done. This would never happen here. I think the american election is often based on the presidential candidates more than what they stand for. In Sweden the front figures of the different parties aren`t that charismatic and the focus is on what their political view is.
I think the differences might have to do with that in Sweden the king is who represents our country in America it`s the president. If we were to choose who would be the king the election process probably would be more aggressive than it is.
