The Afternoons with Amos PODCAST For Wednesday, October 7, 2015. (Open Lines Including How Listeners Felt About The Democratic Race For President Starts At 19:30 Mark On PODCAST Media Player). Pundits and polls have said that African-Americans are the strongest part of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s support in her race to win the Democratic nomination for President.  So, during Open Lines on Afternoons with Amos Wednesday, we conducted another of the program’s Unscientific Polls of the Airwaves to test how solid Mrs. Clinton’s support is.  Granted the nomination won’t occur for another 13 months and the next Presidential election is 13 months away.  But in our unscientific poll, just 50%; Half of those responding said they supported Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House. And some of those indicated they could change their minds.

Confirming what polls have said, there was very little support right now for Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders as just 8.3% said they favored him for the nomination.  Vice-President Joe Biden who by all accounts is weighing the pros and cons of entering the race had 16.7% support or more than double the support for Sen. Sanders. None of our respondents favored former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley’s bid to be President on the Democratic side.  Significantly, a full quarter 25% of our listener respondents were either undecided or favored none of the four potential democratic candidates. Our listeners comments about the Democratic Presidential race and their views on Secretary Clinton, Senator Sanders and Vice-President Biden are interesting and revealing.  They’re a part of the Open Lines segment which was most of the October 7th Afternoons with Amos.  As again listeners brought up a wide range of topics and subjects from gun control, violence,m the Benghazi hearings and a lot more.  (Interview On AFSCME Rally and Indiana Trailblazers Documentary Starts At 2:23 Mark On PODCAST Media Player).
