How informed do you think you are as to the presidential candidates and their political positions?

Not very informed. I think I've been informed on the bad things on Bush, but I haven't heard anything good about Bush, and I think there are probably some good things about him. Even though I'm going for Kerry, I think he has some good attributes.

Really informed. I think it is important for people to pay attention because the outcome of this election will determine how the U.S. is viewed internationally. The decisions that that the current president has made have affected many people, not only the Americans - the way people live abroad.

I think I'm not as I'm as informed as I would like to be. 'Ignorant' would be the wrong word; I don't know nothing. I'm kind of somewhere in between. I'd like to learn more and I probably will as it gets closer to the elections, but really, you can't get a lot out of the Democratic Convention and the Republican Convention, because they're all kind of tooting their own horns.

I am and I'm not (informed). I'm only informed on what I hear, like everyone else, like what's on the news. I don't follow it religiously, but I listen to what everyone else says.

I'm not very informed about it. I'm not a citizen of the United States, so I don't have the right to vote. I didn't care about it.

I think we're informed, but that a lot of what we're informed on is misinformation. Any news station - like Fox or CNN or something - they're all going to have different biases on it, whether they're Republican or Democrat.
