In the mid-term US election outsourcing is playing a key role. Barack Obama is taking an anti-offshoring stance to win over citizens during hard times, while Republican Mitt Romney owns a company that offshores work.
I was reading an article on the Hindustan Times website which asked Indian who they would prefer to be US president given that Barack Obama is really pushing for the anti-offshoring vote and the US is a huge source of income to Indian services firms.
When I wrote this article 53.65% said they would prefer Obama while 40.8% said Romney. The rest said they couldn't say.
