FM ninety seven seven one hundred. Days to midterms a lot can happen in that time but, ABC's Martha Raddatz discussed the possibilities with our political roundtable. On this week this morning from ABC news this week Co-anchor Martha Raddatz We are back now with our powerhouse, roundtable ABC, news political. Director Rick Klein he's also the co host of the, powerhouse politics podcast Washington Post national, correspondent Mary, Jordan Washington Post chief correspondent Dan balls and, New York Times. Editorial board. Member Mara Gaye welcome to. All. Of, you. Welcome Mara Rick I'm going to start with you a hundred days to. The mid-term elections plenty of. Things could change I look at one hundred days and I think what would, be ninety eighty but where? Are we today what? Are you saying we're seeing election play out across. Two different Americas the battle for the house is taking place in the. Suburbs and exurbs Twenty-three districts that Hillary Clinton one where Republican House ever sits right now and these. Were President Trump this. Isn't that popular there's a meeting on Capitol Hill a few days ago where the White House said the president will go to any Republican district that he's that, he's wanted in but there won't be a lot a lot off the map for him because he's just so Unpopular meanwhile the. Senate. Is, a. Totally different map you've got ten Democrats up for reelection in states that. Were carried by Donald Trump. And that's where Trump country is so powerful so you could have the Democrats, take control of the house? The Republicans keep the? Senate and both for the same reasons President Trump. Dan the president says he's going to go out there and campaign six. Or seven days a week starting in a couple of months before the election he wants the election. To be about him. The Democrats want it to be about him should the Republicans want it to be about him well there are a lot of Republicans who will not welcome him, in their districts because these are districts as you know as Rick said went for Hillary Clinton But. The reality is at this point Democrats appear more energized I mean. Everything we've seen over the last year plus in, terms of special elections Democrats have generally overperform. In terms of turnout and energy and that that sort of thing the one thing we. Know about Donald. Trump is that he, can Rev, up, his base. Mary, we you're always out on the road. Talking talking to voters and I don't want to particularly focus on female voters and, how you think they play in this the. All the fire is on the democratic side people that didn't. Go to PTA meetings are now organizing voters they say that. They've just the, one good thing, that Trump has done is is made them really fired up outrage at what's, going on in the border with kids the feeling. That the president has a loose relationship with. The truth the environment is just making people. Registered to vote give money to vote getting other? People, out and that's a big contrast to the women who say they're going to vote for Trump they, like Trump but, as they say, you know he he May not be a good. Man but he's a good president and by that. Than they when you talk to them and said they don't. Like style they don't like stormy Daniels they don't like how he tweets but they will vote for him they're saying as of today because of conservative judges tax cuts. Lower regulation and that to them is what he's doing is why. They're still on his side and then how can, you counter that and I've seen that on. The road Marion I've talked about this too I've seen that on the road at all. I don't care. By Russia I don't, care about, the, tweets He sees a, means to an end well the. Big unknown I think is whether the democratic and liberal energy, in the, country right now we'll actually translate into electoral victories if you have voters who vote. Who don't generally vote in primary elections? But do show up for presidential elections will. We see them vote in. The in the midterms okay beautifully said thank. You very much all of.
