The Economist Endorses Obama:
It is undeniable that the current economic state is one of the main factors in this year’s tight Race. It seems one of the latest endorsements may have a significant pull in the election results. The Economist, a highly accredited weekly magazine which is circulated to over 200 countries has encouraged American citizens to vote Obama “the next leader of the free world.”
The article cited this year’s financial crisis in one of the main factors in the 2008 election. The editorial stated that a new direction is needed for the United States and that Obama is that change.
The endorsement read: “The Democratic candidate has clearly shown that he offers the better chance of restoring America’s self-confidence.”
Will this endorsement sway voters?
