The article discusses the anticipation of the results of the 1980 U.S. presidential election by the European nations. They awaited the outcome of the election with a mixture of confusion and anxiety. Also, there is perplexity stemming from the great differences in political systems between the U.S. and Europe. The results of the election is important to the future of Europe. On the other hand, the suspicion that the U.S. would abandon Europe in a crisis is abating. Europe knows one thing, that the Soviet Union understands the uses of force.
