Listen: President Donald Trump, New York, Senate discussed on Max & Murphy on Politics
"But apparently, the Societa press is reporting that President Donald Trump is spending election day calling allies tweeting endorsements and fobbing news coverage. We know which news coverage after concluding six day rally. Let's in Missouri late Monday faced with the possibility of keeping the Senate. But losing the house as began laying out the political reality Trump who could face an onslaught of democratic run investigations and paralysis of his policy agenda. Longlines malfunctioning machines, mar the first hours voting in some precincts, the US, including as we've been talking about here in New York. Some of the biggest problems over reported Tuesday in Georgia state with a highly contested, given a toy election of aero was just. Talking about that. Now, one example cited here is at a polling place in Snell Ville, Georgia or that one hundred people took turns sitting and children's chairs and on the floor as they waited in line for hours, a House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi, at least the democratic leader for the moment says the midterm elections are basically a referendum on Republican efforts to scrap ObamaCare, and that's interesting because CNN is also reporting their exit polls four of ten voters apparently a plurality say healthcare is the driving issue for them, which is fascinating because we've been so focused about on on election violence on the caravan on bread Cavanaugh. I don't think we've talked about the health care very much, at least at least not here not much here. It has certainly come up in some of the house races around New York. We sent a reporter up to look at the John Foucault race Republican the Hudson valley facing a very tough challenger from an Tonio. Delgado. The democrat that raise has gotten a lot of national attention a lot of money. Seen as a swing potential swing district. That's really one of the districts across the country that Democrats are seeing as a as a possible pickup healthcare is definitely been in the discussion there. As well. As in the Donovan max rose race that Staten Island and Brooklyn. So there's definitely been some conversation. But there's so much of the national dialogue narrative that is, you know, Trump dominated and he's not really talking about healthcare. So that gets crowded out sometimes, but an interesting map the other day about across the country, the issues that are being talked about the most during election season healthcare was dominant over the course of a lot of the country. And it's fascinating because you here folks, even within the Republican party who are not the JC politico, never Trump types who want Trump to do. Well, and are behind him who are scratching their heads about? Why the economy is not more of the discussion from the president who is doing more of the fear mongering about a caravan that's miles from the from border. And of course, single payer healthcare is an issue here in New York as well. It is one of those issues that some Democrats very excited to attack others. Not really very excited at all. We spoke on the show a few weeks ago with Senator Mike generis who is the head of Democratic Senate campaign committee in the state, and he talked about some issues that are the low hanging fruit as you alluded to earlier, and some that are coming down the pipe a little further if at all think single payer healthcare, isn't that second batch low he didn't even want to use the phrase, he didn't want to you know, he seemed to not want to say single payer. He seemed to not want to say Medicare for all, you know, he talked about healthcare generally, as as a issue Democrats will certainly look at in a new session if they gain control, but it was clearly not at the top priorities. What's interesting about that? Is we were wondering Gotham gazette where the single payer discussion is actually occurring in these States Senate races? And when we looked into it a lot of democratic candidates even on Long Island in the Hudson valley, and some of these swing districts where you would think it would actually not be smart to talk about pushing single payer. They are talking about it. They are supporting it even. Andrew gone artists in southern Brooklyn in a very moderate district. That Marty golden has represented Republican is represented for a long time. He's not it's not top of his agenda, but he's openly talking about health care for all and being behind single payer.."
