If women were the only people who voted for president, Barack Obama would be poised to re-take the White House next month with a higher margin of victory than he had in 2008.

If only men voted, Mitt Romney would have the possibility of issuing a crushing defeat along the lines of Ronald Reagan’s 1980 victory over Jimmy Carter.

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.

Vox Pop : Open Forum - Election 2012 - 9/4/12

Today at 5 p.m., Democratic delegates from across the country will be called to order in Charlotte, North Carolina for the first evening of the Democratic National Convention, where on Thursday President Barack Obama will accept the party’s nomination and make his case for re-election.

The DNC follows last week’s Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida, which concluded with a speech by GOP candidate Mitt Romney that some say gained him some ground with undecided voters.

The polls suggest that New York is well out of play for Romney, with the Obama-Biden ticket holding a strong lead in one of the bluest of blue states. Still it’s been a busy few days for the New York delegation in Tampa. WAMC’s Brian Shields spoke this morning with Jimmy Vielkind of the Albany Times Union, who is covering the Republican National Convention.

Vox Pop : Open Forum – Election 2012 : 8/1/12

With Election Day only about four months away, President Barack Obama and presumed Republican candidate Mitt Romney have kicked their campaigns into high gear.

The week so far seems to be a loser for Romney, who topped the headlines not for suggesting bold policy changes, but for a series of campaign gaffes that called into question his stances on race in America and international relations.
