The Impact of the USA Election

Is there anyone in the whole world who is not amazed , shocked, frustrated and appalled by the dumpster fire that is this presidential election.

Neither candidate is anything other than completely unlikeable and their popularity ratings are the lowest in  History. To say that both reputations has been completely destroyed during the election is an understatement. A more interesting question is what impact does this election have on American democracy and it’s authority around the World.

There are so many negative things to say about this election cycle that it’s hard to know where to start. With a population of over 200 million people comma you would think that the Americans could come up with a more exciting pair of candidates. Then there is the behaviour of both the media and the electric as a whole who has absolutely failed to bring balance to the proceedings. Then there is the almost complete absence of facts and the way the election has been blanketed in a lurid covering of innuendo.

It’s no surprise that the rest of the world is laughing and countries used to being lectured by the United States are now pondering on the question of whether American democracy is a workable system anymore.

This is an outstanding example of reputation disaster in action. It starts at the top and then works it way down until the only person who comes unscathed is Michelle Obama, it would seem.
