Vox Pop : Open Forum - The Second Presidential Debate : 10/16/12

After weeks of somewhat troubling news out of his campaign, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney scored points a few weeks ago after what pundits have described as an un-engaging performance by President Barack Obama in the first presidential debate.

Obama and Romney will meet again on the debate floor tonight, this time at Hofstra University on Long Island…

On this edition of Vox Pop we want your take on tonight’s debate. Can the president stage a comeback, or will Romney carry the day for a second time. WAMC’s Alan Chartock hosts.

Vox Pop : Open Forum - Romney's '47 Percent' Video : 9/18/12

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has again found himself the focus of negative publicity following the posting of video of the candidate by the progressive news outlet Mother Jones during which he told supporters that he will never convince “47 percent” of Americans who he said will, “support the president no matter what,” because they believe they are “victims” entitled to be cared for by the government.

Today we want your reaction to Romney’s comments and to what people are saying about those comments today. WAMC’s Alan Chartock hosts.
