During an American presidential election, people from all over the world can stay up to date with what is taking place. As a result of this, these people can have their own views when it comes to who should end up in the white house.
However, if an election was taking place in another country, there is the chance that most people won’t be aware of it. This could mean that the mainstream media will only focus on what is taking place there from time to time, or they might not even talk about it.
Yet, as American is such an influential country, it is not much of a surprise that it will receive so much exposure during a presidential election. What happens in this country often has an effect on what takes place in other countries.
On the other hand, if another country was to end up with a new president, it might not have much of an effect on the world. Thus, it could be said that there is going to be no reason to give these kind of countries the same kind of exposure when they are about to elect a new president.
And, if one did want to stay up to date with what this taking place in other countries, they could simply go online. It is not as if they need to rely on the mainstream media to inform them anymore.
If they have the desire to know what is taking place around them, they have the chance to find out. As long as they have some kind of device, they will be able to find out about anything.
If an election is taking place in America and one is paying attention to it in another country, it could be as if it is taking place in their country. This is because they could pick up a paper or turn on the news and this could be what they are talking about.
What is actually taking place in their country could end up being pushed to one side, or it might not receive the same amount of exposure. Even so, there will come a time when a president has been elected.
The Right Person
But regardless of whether one lives in America or not, they are likely to believe that one person is better than the others. And, if the current president has already been in office for eight years, they might be annoyed by the fact that they can’t stay on for longer.
In this case, they could simply support someone who they believe is the best candidate for the job. But not matter who they go for, they are going to believe that they are not as good as the person who will soon leave the white house.
The person they are supporting is then going to be the best option, and they could be surprised if someone has a different view. In their eyes, this could be something that is perfectly clear.
At the same time, one could believe that one candidate is far better than the others, and they could also be seen as being far better than the current president. This candidate could then be seen as some kind of saviour, or they could just be seen as the right person for the job.
The Time Has Come
Therefore, when a new president is elected, not everyone is going to have the same kind of response. For some, it could be hard for them to believe what has taken place, and they could be in a state of shock.
In addition to this, there will be others who can’t believe how it has turned out, but they will be pleased with the outcome. And, of course, there will be others that couldn’t care less about what has happened.
If the new president is not someone they supported, there might not be anything about them that they like. As far as they are concerned, this could be someone who doesn’t have what it takes to do the job properly.
In fact, one could believe that the person who has won couldn’t be any worse. The country is then going to end up going in the wrong direction, and they might even imagine what it would be like if this person was to disappear.
But if the president is someone they did support during the election, they could like everything about them. This person could be seen as someone who has what it takes to move the country in the right direction.
This could mean that they don’t believe there is anyone out there at this time who is better for the job. The country is then only going to get better, and they could see them as being a saviour.
So whether one sees them as the worst person on the planet or the best, they are going to believe that their assessment is accurate. If an outsider was to speak to people like this, they could find it hard to believe how they could have a radically different view of the same person.
There is the chance that what is taking place within them is having a big effect on how they view the president. This is then why they are unable to take an objective approach, and to realise they both have their pros and cons.
Idolised or Demonised
How one sees the president is then more about what is taking place within them than it is about what this person is actually like as a person. If they demonise them, it could show that they are projecting the parts of themselves that they don’t like onto them.
Yet, if they idolise them, it could simply how that they have projected their undeveloped parts onto them. And, through being this way, they are going to be unable to change what is taking place within them.
When one demonises a president, they won’t be able to see their bad side, and they won’t be able to see the good things that they do. Alternatively, if one idolises them, they will only see their good side, and it won’t be possible for them to acknowledge the bad things that they do.
What this shows is that there is what a president is like and then there is what someone projects onto them. And, if one wants to have a balanced outlook, it will be vital for them to pay attention to how what is taking place within them is having an effect on their outlook.
