May both the Axis and Soviets have influence in the USA (to a total of 3), or do the cancel each other like the other countries?

Thanks,
Bill

Sorry for hijacking the thread, but my question fits under the same topic.

Rule 8.44 Public opinion:

At Year Start/Advance Year of 1942,
1943 and 1944 (see Year track), the
West automatically gains one Influence
on the USA.

Does this mean:
A. Any rival's influence in the USA is lost at this moment and one Western influence marker is placed.

or

B. The influence gained by public opinion negates one Rival's influence in the USA, so it is subtracted from Axis or Soviet influence.

It's just like any other influence placed, but it just happens automatically. So, if there is Rival influence, the automatic West influence will just remove them one at a time.

Yep
Remove 1 Rival Influence if present, or add 1 West Influence if not.
