One of the most widely recognized Hispanic radio personalities in the U.S.-- Radio Hall of Famer and author Eddie Sotelo-- known to millions as “Piolin”-- and his nationally syndicated weekday morning radio show, El Show de Piolin, kicked off the Piolin Presidential Poll by surveying tens of thousands of Hispanic Americans, representing one of the largest and most representative Presidential Polls of Hispanic American voters.
Respondents submitted their responses to a single question—“Whom do you plan to vote for for President of the United States?”— via www.elshowdepiolin.net and on Piolin’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/elshowdepiolin).
According to the online poll tracking respondent preferences for the Republican Presidential candidates for the week of Wednesday, September 16 through Tuesday, September 22, 2015:
- 50.9% of respondents said that they planned to vote for Gov. Jeb Bush
- Senator Marco Rubio came in at a distant second, with 16.7% of respondents.
- Behind Rubio was Dr. Ben Carson, with 12% of respondents
- 9.3% of respondents said that they planned to vote for Donald Trump
- 4.6% said that they planned to vote for Senator Ted Cruz.
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 today and will run through next Wednesday, September 30. The poll is not scientific, and participation will be driven by on-air and online promotions across Piolin’s massive broadcast, online and social platform, including daily promotions on El Show de Piolin. Only one vote per visitor per poll will be counted by the Piolin Presidential Poll online system.
Piolin said: “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.”
