BERLIN (AP) -- Europeans are greeting Democrat Barack Obama's convention acceptance speech as a strong performance that boosted his campaign.
Polls from Germany and elsewhere in Europe suggest Obama is an overwhelming favorite over Republican rival John McCain amid wide discontent with President Bush.
Still, some are questioning whether a captivating style and promises of change are enough to win the presidency.
Although many European television channels aired the speech live in the early hours of Friday morning, most people didn't stay up to see it.
