'Political Rewind' replay: Listeners pass judgment on Donald Trump's first 100 days


Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” features a focus group of eight listeners passing judgment on President Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.

The 50-minute session was recorded last Thursday evening. Many of them had participated in a previous listener’s panel, but this one was a little more tense – particularly on the issue of illegal immigration.

Health care was something of a surprise. All three pro-Trump panelists said they wouldn’t feel at all betrayed if the president reneged on his promise to repeal Obamacare – if that would bring Democrats in Congress to the table.

Host Bill Nigut and yours truly moderated the session. Our listener’s panel:

-- Colton Sagebill, an Auburn University student;

-- Brent Walker, an IT specialist at Mercer University;

-- Ladan Pratt, the finance officer for a software company;

-- Scott Auerbach, a self-employed photographer and designer;

-- Karen Vieria-Verdi, a registered nurse;

-- Jodi Yarini, a United Church of Christ pastor;

-- Johannes Kleiner, a permanent green card-holder from Germany;

-- and Ariel Alaba, a Georgia State University student.
