Thanks, Europeans. Your overwhelming support for Biden means Trump’s now more likely to win. You just don’t understand us at all

Polls taken in seven European countries reveal they massively favor Biden there, by 67 percent to 14 percent for the incumbent. It just shows that continent’s ignorance of the US, and will make Americans more likely to vote Trump.

As an American who’s lived in Europe for the majority of my adult life (if Brexit Britain can still be described as being part of that continent), I am constantly amazed at how little people over here understand us Yanks and our country.

I am not sure whether that’s because of some underlying contempt from the old countries towards our still comparatively young nation, or a resentment of how America has overtaken them all to become the world’s leader, or just some snobbery about our supposed loudness, or arrogance, or cultural deficiencies. Or perhaps it's simply that Europeans tend, perhaps with the exception of the Brits, to be much more left-leaning than most Americans.

Whatever it is, it means there’s a myopic, often ignorant, view of what really goes on in America, and of what matters to the majority of its citizens.
