THE NETHERLANDS - A survey conducted by Radio Netherlands Worldwide says that 85 percent of Dutch expatriates and emigrants living in the US want Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama to win the race for the White House.

Those questioned said the financial crisis was the biggest problem facing the new president and that the "war on terror" was less important.

Those surveyed also said they consider George W Bush the worst president the country has had since the end of WWII. The most popular president since the war is Bill Clinton.
