ALLIANCE RADIO NETWORKS announced the results of the first polling period for the PIOLIN PRESIDENTIAL POLL, which tracks HISPANIC-AMERICANS’ voting preferences for the 2016 U.S. Presidential election on a weekly basis.
RADIO HALL OF FAME inductee and author EDDIE SOTELO -- better known as on-air personality PIOLIN -- and his nationally syndicated weekday morning radio show, "El Show de PIOLIN" -- kicked off the POLL by asking tens of thousands of HISPANIC-AMERICANS, “Whom do you plan to vote for for President of the U.S.?” -- via www.elshowdepiolin.net and on PIOLIN’s FACEBOOK page.
According to the online poll tracking respondent preferences for the REPUBLICAN Presidential candidates for the week of WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 16th through TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22nd, 50.9% of respondents said that they planned to vote for Gov. JEB BUSH, with Sen. MARCO RUBIO coming in at a distant second, with 16.7%. Next was DR. BEN CARSON, with 12%, while 9.3% of respondents said that they planned to vote for DONALD TRUMP, and 4.6% said that they planned to vote for Sen. TED CRUZ. CARLY FIORINA and Sen. RAND PAUL each came in at 1.9%, while Govs. CHRIS CHRISTIE, JOHN KASICH and GEORGE PATAKI followed behind at 0.9% each.
The PIOLIN PRESIDENTIAL POLL will be conducted every week until the 2016 Presidential Elections and will alternate between parties each week. Polling for the DEMOCRATIC Presidential candidates begins tomorrow and will run through next WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30th. The poll is not scientific, and participation will be driven by on-air and online promotions across PIOLIN’s broadcast, online and social platform, including daily promotions on "El Show de PIOLIN." Only one vote per visitor per poll will be counted.
Commented PIOLIN: “The PIOLIN PRESIDENTIAL POLL will be the bellwether poll for HISPANIC voters. It is important to us, as a leading voice for HISPANICS, to keep our fingers on the pulse of our community and to keep our listeners fully informed of their choices in this pivotal election. It is most important that we make their voices heard amidst the barrage of information and opinions that will be shared leading up to the election.”
