Listen: Donald Trump, Elizabeth Warren And Cory Booker discussed on The Glenn Beck Show
"We are getting into the election, and we we had some new contenders and really good-looking contenders. To for America that stepped into the race today. Stew is actually working on a what he believes will be. Something that. Will be extraordinarily useful. As you're going is you're going forward in twenty twenty to be able to measure the democratic nominees. And how the race is shaping up. You have over twenty factors that you're looking at Stu, yes. So far twenty six different categories. They go from everything from polling to fundamentals to support within the party alignment with the the political policy positions of activists sort of voters. There's a lot of different factors that go into. I think it's twenty six so far it probably will expand a little bit from there. But I'm still in the middle of building it fully. Are you looking at the center of the country Democrats at all? Yeah. We're looking at that. And as well as the early states, which will be what you're talking about. This is about whether these candidates can win the primary who's is kind of like a power rankings for the democratic candidate. And who's going to be an end kenu when you get it done. Will you be able to look at which one? One is you know, they might be winning the primary but not necessarily good against Trump because that's my most important factors right now. I'm not building it as who is going to be the best matchup for Trump from the Democrats per se. Although that's a factor in it, one of the things the reasons I'm considering that that sort of polling, which is basically based on general election polling which still is out is already being taken is that is probably the number one thing. Democrats want advocated it, which is to be Trump if they came up with person who believed a lots of different things from them. But they believe would actually be Trump that person much more likely to actually would that's going to be different though, you know, with the with the with the Keith Ellison of the world. I mean, they really believe I read an article this. This week. Something something along the lines of what was the headline can a moderate win the against Trump ten a moderate, wait. Wait, wait. You're only saying that the Republicans are running extremist when we when we run people who believe in the constitution, you're now questioning whether a moderate could win in the Democratic Party. I mean, we I mean. Howard Schultz is not a moderate to liberal Democrat. And he can't even fit in the party. No, he's running as an independent potentially. Because he doesn't think he has any chance basically to win as a democratic candidate. I mean think about that. That is a that's quite a statement. He's a life long democrat as guys started, Starbucks, and he's out and he's out he's out of the party. So think about how radical that changes. How do they expect to run a radical? When twenty percent of the vote for Donald Trump came from people who voted at least once for Barack Obama. I mean, it's the best path for a win for Donald Trump. If he is going to face someone like a, you know, Elizabeth Warren someone who so far left that it's impossible for a person in the middle of the country to say, I'm comfortable with that anybody who signs for the new green deal. Right. And they all have as far as I know. I know I know Cory Booker was bragging about it. Kamala Harris is on it. And Elizabeth Warren is on board as far as I know. I don't know of any of the candidates have rejected. I don't think there's been one candidate yet that rejected it now that might be the type of job that Joe Biden takes up if he gets in the race. And he's the guy who says all I want is super mega liberal, not socialist. And that may be enough in this context to to win. He's obviously doing very well in the polls. But you know, a lot of that's name recognition and he hasn't even announced yet. But yeah, I mean, it's interesting to look at it. I I did I had the very draft versions of this done. Haven't added clutch are yet. She just announced this weekend. Minnesota Minnesota Senator and she's kind of being touted as the first kind of moderate to get in the race. She is touted as a moderate. She's from a state that Trump almost one and from a region where Trump pulled off some unexpected victory. So that's one of the things they're she. She kind of plays herself off as a moderate. I looked at brisker conservative review score. Now, a lot of Democrats have zero percent conservative review scores. So I mean, I, you know, so she's a moderate. She is a two percent. Oh, wow. So two percent conservative review score really sexy for the moderates out there. Yeah. But we can go through this. If you want really quick there's so far I guess one two three four five six seven eight nine nine. I think I have in their Cobra would be ten there's a couple of other minor candidates that we don't have any yet. But the way it works is basically score from one to one hundred it comes to an there's a lot of different categories, but they're not all treated equally. Right. Like, there's certain things that are really important certain things that are not all that important. What's the most important thing? I mean, certainly polling is up there as it was very important. The endorsements from the campaign. We don't that's hasn't really started yet. But that when we come important name recognition quite important things like the support from party elite social reach is is pretty important. You look at that. Like you look at someone like a. Social reaches an interesting one, right? Like, you have people like Elizabeth Warren. Cory Booker have huge social followings where someone like a. Kamala Harris has a much smaller social following. She's getting lots of buzz from the media right now, she doesn't necessarily have that way too easily and cheaply spread that message. She'll that will grow. If she starts to lead in the polls these things all start to follow each other. And you know, there's policy alignment stuff and also in in all sorts of stuff like that. Is it a serious campaign is their baggage? You know, how many gaffes do they have how many how do they have a propensity for gaffes? So there's a lot of different things to look there. So the score basically comes out from zero to one hundred is basically it'd be impossible to zero or one hundred soggy these in reverse order as they stand right now, Andrew Young, he's he's a I thought he would be higher up on the list shockingly now he's got a seventeen point eight. Then you've got John Delaney is a former congressman, but has really made. No big impact you said eighteen. Pete buddha. Judge. Now, Pete is the guy from he's the mayor of south bend, Indiana. Yeah. Love buddha. Yes. He's at twenty nine on our guy handed. Her Tulsi Gabbard is next. She's at a thirty on our scale. She's a congresswoman from Hawaii. Then you got Kirstin gillibrand is at thirty eight on our scale Julio Castro at forty one interesting. There's a couple of things that I found interesting as we get here towards the top. Who's there's only there's really only three or four big candidates that are in right now. And they are at the top. Elizabeth Warren is next at forty one point four. I was shocked to see her though, I mean towards the bottom group. I mean, forty one was Hooley in Castro again, he was HUD secretary and mayor of San Antonio. That's what does she why is there number come down on this? I mean, she just got so many problems. She just riddled with problems, and that's it. Right. And she has a real problems fundamentally as candidate. She does well on things like social scores. She does. Okay. And holing there's certain things that she does. Pretty well. But a lot of those candidates. I mean, how does she deal with Donald Trump? We've talked about this before she has she'd be he'd walk all over. He is she's the ideal handed it to run against Trump. If she if that if they can make Elizabeth Warren the candidate Trump will have the easiest time. I think with her. Cory Booker actually finished second in this. And he's at forty eight point five right now, which is considerably better than I think he's a terrible candidate. I mean, Cory Booker, you'll see him in speeches sometimes and he's kind of engaging, but he is a performer he when he gets in those moments. He tends to write things he's not authentic the authenticity level of Cory Booker is low when he gets in big moments. He handles partly. I am Spartacus is a great example of it. Right. I mean, so authentic so in authentic, and again, just a he's also the type of person you saw it with green clip that we played earlier the green new deal clip where he is a type of person that likes to defend those indefensible positions he likes to jump into those situations. So when everyone's saying the green new deal, it's ridiculous. Like was. Andrea Cossio coach Cortes comes out with it. Bunch people jump on board with it. And then everyone starts to see the details. Come out and say, oh my God. This is not a serious proposal. Right now momentum is going against the green new deal because it's patently absurd. Anyone who looks at it knows. It's ridiculous. Why just because he wanted to abolish air travel? Fossil fuels and in car travel, remake knocked down and rebuild or just re retrofit every single home in America and every single structure in America. He's not legitimate ideas. I mean, this this is this is Alexandria, Cossio Cortez silliness things and say why? Yeah. And that's what his defense was right. His defense was awesome. Moonshot people said was impossible. But they didn't say it was impossible that it was hard. This is impossible. And it's stupid. It's not even a goal you'd want to do at least the moon because at least look up there and say, wow, that's pretty cool video. I mean, I don't know what you get out of the green deal except bankrupting people. So he was at forty eight point five and then in first place as it stands. Now was Kamala Harris and her rating at sixty five point one. So as of this moment based on my model here Kamala Harris is considerably ahead of the field. That does not necessarily mean anything at this point. We again, the top tier candidates. You don't have a veteran yet. You don't have a. Vitamin in yet. You don't have a lot of the people who are kind of talked about in that top tier? I mean, you saw Michelle Obama's appearance the other night. I mean people keep talking about her as a potential candidate. We've talked about it before she's not way. I mean, she's not showing any signs of running at this point. But I think if you got to a point where they were desperate. Think you've got to the point to where everybody was like that's Elizabeth Warren. She may she may pop in. And if she pops in she wins it, right? Like, she. She is barring something I seen. She's been through these try. She's been out in fry. Any everybody always says Oprah. Michelle Obama's better than Oprah. Yes. Ma'am. Knows what Oprah she has. No idea what she's talking about in half of these things. Michelle Obama is has lived in this world. She's been through the pressure of DC. She knows it. She knows it around. Around. White House again as he's thinking of a democratic activist. They see her as the shining example of what we have set on fire with Donald Trump. Right. They had this wonderful thing going. They had recovered from that evil Bush administration. Everything was going great. And then they set it on fire by electing Donald Trump. And it was Hillary Clinton's fault. She's the one that blew it. She didn't go. She didn't go far enough. She couldn't do it. They think shell Obama Ken. And if Michelle Obama walk into that primary, it would turn the whole thing upside down, she'd be at the top of this seconds because she has that she's the easiest path to that nomination.."
