Wittenberg University Political-Science Professor Rob Baker joins WYSO's Jerry Kenney to talk about shifting poll numbers for the presidential candidates, the continuing republican divide leading up to the election and the challenges facing libertarian and other 3rd party candidates.





In the interview, Baker says polling accuracy can be difficult but should not be discounted.

He began volunteering at the station in 1991 and began hosting Alpha Rhythms in February of 1992. Jerry joined the WYSO staff in 2007 as a host of All Things Considered and soon transitioned into hosting Morning Edition. In addition to now hosting All Things Considered, Jerry is the host and producer of WYSO Weekend, WYSO's weekly news and arts magazine. He has also produced several radio dramas for WYSO in collaboration with local theater companies. Jerry has won several Ohio AP awards as well as an award from PRINDI for his work with the WYSO news department. Jerry says that the best part of his job is being able to talk to people in the community and share their experiences with WYSO listeners.
