Episode #284: Independents Day

There’s no way we can celebrate Independence Day without hearing about significant independent presidential candidates of the past half century.  Ron Rapoport,  formerly of the College of William & Mary, takes us on a tour starting with Gary Johnson and Jill Stein in 2016 and traveling back to 1968 with George Wallace.

Plus, we thought we would explore the question:  What makes a political junkie?  We hear from Democratic pollster Anna Greenberg, political analyst Stu Rothenberg, former Sen. Alan Simpson (R-Wyo.) and Sacramento Bee editorial cartoonist Jack Ohman on what being a political junkie means to them. In addition, some of our listeners to tell us why THEY are political junkies.
