While campaigning in Ohio on Wednesday, President Obama checked in with a quick radio interview on The Tom Joyner Morning Show. The show is one of the most popular drive-time radio shows on air with a heavily African-American audience.
Joyner only could ask the president two questions because of time restrictions. He immediately asked the president to talk about why his debate performance was so off last week. He also asked the president to talk to the black community about why they feel he isn’t doing anything for them.
In addition to answering those questions, the president took the time to remind the audience about early voting in some states and voter registration deadlines in others. He knows that African-American turnout at the polls is key to shoring up some of his numbers in key states.
