Election2020-Andrew-Yang-Fairfield-Iowa-Bob Davis Podcast 894

On The Road In Iowa

I am live on the road covering the democrats in Iowa. With the much talked about Iowa Caucuses less than ten days away, the campaigning is in its final stages here. Most noteworthy is an appearance from a Fairfield favorite Marianne Williamson in Election2020-Andrew-Yang-Fairfield-Iowa-Bob Davis Podcast 894.

Fresh Approach To Campaign Coverage

I have a fresh approach to campaign coverage. In contrast to everyone else, I won’t tell you what to think and I am certainly not going to tell anyone who to vote for.

Taking You Inside

Because of my strict observance of this rule, my podcasts covering these events takes the listener inside the event. Moreover I’m not there to judge or tell subscribers and listeners whether the candidate is right or wrong.

No Judgements

Seems like all media outlets these days are bent on telling you what to think. As a result I think it’s time for political coverage that doesn’t do that.

Younger Voters

What’s especially relevant about Andrew Yang at this event is the appeal to younger voters and to the tech community.

Universal Basic Income and Tech

Yang’s self described signature proposal is a universal basic income for all Americans. He spends a lot of time talking about the inevitable loss of jobs due to artificial intelligence and robotics. Hear Andrew Yang in Election2020-Andrew-Yang-Fairfield-Iowa-Bob Davis Podcast 894.

Fairfield Iowa Is Unique

Fairfield Iowa isn’t just a farm town either. It’s home to a sizeable meditation community as well as a tech community.

Workers and Farmers

Finally Yang and other democratic candidates vying for a strong showing in the caucuses have been touring communities hit hard by the loss of manufacturing jobs over the last thirty years.

Where The Votes Are

Also important is the fact that many of the democrat candidates are going to where the democrat votes are, in the final week or so of campaigning.

Seven Days

I’ll talk more about the trip including my personal observations in the next podcast from the campaign trail.
