One thousand 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 till. The mid-term elections plenty of things can change look at one hundred days and I think we'll, be ninety eighty but where? Are we today and what? Are you saying we're seeing an election play out across. Two different Americas the battle for the house is taking place, in. The suburbs excerpts Twenty-three districts that Hillary Clinton one where Republican House member. Sits right now and these are places where 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 always. Had on the road talking talking to voters I don't want to particularly focus on, female voters and how you think they play. 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 about 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, then they when you talk to them I say they don't like his, 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 what he's doing is why they're still on. The side and then how do they can you counter that and I've seen that on. The road Mary and I've talked about this too. I've seen that on the road is out I don't care. About Russia I don't care about the tweets I as 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 you you're listening, to KOMO, news There?
