"When our area let's see. It's 16, Yonkers, 58 In Norwalk and 59 In Bellmore, five twenties, a time multi billionaire and former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg poured $1.2 billion into presidential politics. All that money is only personal win in his bid for the White House was American Samoa. Then, after pledging to spend whatever it takes to be Donald Trump, he routed $110 million to run spots for Joe Biden in Florida, Ohio and Texas. All states, Biden lost.

How does the Electoral College work?
"This week's episode answers the question. How in the world does the electoral college pick our president. You're listening to the how in the world podcast we're we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions in just about ten minutes nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal people who like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research so you don't have to well. Today is thursday november fifth twenty twenty. And it's been a quiet couple of days around here in the. Us assure was there was something on tv to incessantly. Watch and keep checking my phone about What could that possibly be wrong. Oh how about the twenty twenty elections. It's been a wild couple of days folks in it. Looks like it could be wild for a bit longer. So let's all practice are deep breathing and relaxation methods together. Bring your popcorn as the time that we're recording this. I believe the elections come down to maybe four states that haven't yet counted all of their votes but once they're done it's still not over no not even close because once all the votes are counted will know what the results of the popular vote are. But we won't officially know yet. Who won this election. And that's because not only will there be a ton of lawsuits than we unto way through but also because we don't elect our president based on the popular. Vote like you would in the classroom election elementary school. We use the electoral college. And i've always been a little foggy about the electoral college. So i'm glad recovering this today because it forced me to dig deeper really kind of learn about it or you could have just asked your wife who by the way is a political scientist by education. You know yeah. I've been told that. Before so i get a little invested in presidential elections and the preceding debates and political discussion. So what it's fascinating and also frustrating and maddening and kinda stupid also but so fascinating the strategy. He's not even close anyway. Let's talk about the electoral college. Yup that's why we're here. So let's do it and by the way we're going to refrain from any partisan right discussion. This is just about the electoral college. You won't know who we voted for. So for starters you know how annoying all of those census ads and like postcard mailers and mail and information and more ads and everything was reminding us. How important is that we fill out our census form so that everyone is counted yet. And i remember seeing a ton about the census recently. But i believe you filled out the form. Since you're our families designated form filler outer am. I joined it because again i am a political scientist so data and surveys and stuff like that matters anyway. The census is used to determine a lot of things most notably funding to your state for certain services. So if you have a disproportionate number of school aged kids for example it tells the. Us government that you'll need a disproportionate amount of funding for schools. I mean that's really dumbing. It down but funding is a biggie. And doesn't also tell you how many representatives you'll get in the. Us house it does so every state gets two senators so there are a total of one hundred senators in the us senate but representatives are totally different because their allocated based on the census count. Yes they are. There's always four hundred and thirty five of them. No more no less. But how they're allocated can change. So if everyone emptied out of california which currently has fifty three districts and therefore fifty-three representatives and moved to wyoming which currently has just one representative. Those numbers would turn on their head. And by the way. Alaska delaware montana and north and south dakota and also vermont have just one representative yes and there are also some non voting delegates in the hell. They can do everything. The voting members can do except vote. Hence the name right. They can introduce bills and participate in committees Currently there is a delegate representing washington. Dc as well as one each for puerto rico. American samoa guam the northern mariana islands. And the us virgin islands. They're also talking about adding a delegate from the cherokee nation and from the choctaw nation which is super cool. Yeah it really is. And the senate and house together are called congress and there are a total of five hundred thirty five members of congress. So that's that hundred senators and the four hundred and thirty five representatives. Each state has the same number of electoral college votes. That they have congressmen or women which means each state has a minimum of three electoral college members. Two senators one representative three so for the the smaller less populated states. They're still going to have three electoral college members.
"The documentary chasing Coral premiered in July 2017 and it is a powerful film and since we've been talking about coral reef conservation at the shop thought it would be good to do a review of chasing Coral here on scuba Shack Radio. I watched it again a few days ago and it was just as impactful as the first time I saw. The documentary was conceived by Richard veevers who is currently CEO of the ocean agency. Richard worked at a top London advertising agency before he got involved with a passion on Ocean conservation. He was working on a project called Excel Caitlin Seaview survey regarding images of coral reefs that's where he started to understand the impacts of coral bleaching. Around this time. He watched a documentary called Chasing Ice produced by Jeff orloski and chasing Coral was born. I thought I'd give some key statistics on what it took to put together chasing Coral first. It took about three years to shoot over 500 hours of incredible underwater footage off. There were Thirty countries contributing to the documentary and more than 500 volunteers involved just an incredible effort. The film won the People's Choice Award for best documentary at the Sundance Film Festival and the 2018 Emmy for Outstanding nature documentary. Jeff Orlowski was originally from Staten Island, New York. He went to Stanford to study anthropology got into filmmaking and worked on the Extreme Ice survey that turned into Chase nice in 2009. He found it exposure Labs a production company focused on socially relevant issues. So chasing Coral is really about the quest to document with imagery a coral bleaching event. By reviewing what was happening at carries forward Reef in in the Florida Keys and at airport Reef in America Samoa. They determined that they would need to build a viable underwater time lapse camera. That's when they go to a company in Boulder. Colorado called view into the blue and they were going to build a housing. That would keep it self clean. It just so happens the exact Rego works at view Into the Blue. He describes himself as a coral nerd and becomes a main player in the documentary. With the cameras developed, they deploy to Hawaii Bermuda and the Bahamas and they put down their cameras and wait a couple months to get the images. It's a failure. The images are out of focus a lost opportunity. It's back to the drawing board to fix the problems before their next attempt. The next opportunity is on the Great Barrier Reef. They head out deploy their cameras and wait a large typhoon impacts their plans. So they read the place to another Island lizard Island, but they aren't able to take any of their special cameras the team needs to do time lapse manually that means going out every day setting up the camp exactly as before and getting the photos painstaking and exhausting after more than a hundred days. They complete the work over that timeframe. The coral has bleached died and his overgrown by algae Zack is extremely emotional at this incredible loss. It's crazy to think of water temperatures at 95° Fahrenheit, but that's what it was dead. Another team went to New Caledonia where they observed an amazing phenomenon fluorescent corals an attempt to Shield itself from the temperatures an amazing sight am amazing colors just before bleaching extremely sad to see the corals stunning last gasps. The documentary continues with Zach and Richard presenting their work at the international coral reef Symposium in Hawaii the time lapse photography of the coral reef dying over a two-month period of dramatic and overpowering the reaction of the attendees demonstrates the sadness. The film wraps up with Jack diving with one of his Heroes doctor Charlie Verona Pioneer in Coral research and conservation. They are diving on a beautiful unimpacted part of the reef off Charlie reflects back on maybe he didn't do enough. Maybe we all need to do more. Corals are being assaulted on many fronts not just climate change but pollution sunscreen and carelessness citizens are trying and we need our governments to act as well. Perhaps a new day is Dawning. If you haven't yet seen chasing Coral. You can find it on Netflix. Please find a time. You won't be disappointed. If you've already watched it believe me. It's worth watching again. We can't let them

S. politicians believe that because we had good intentions we could democratize the Middle East that is we could bring American style democracy to countries that have for years relied on violent efforts to change controlling hands after twenty years it's apparent that we are fighting a force that has been long embedded in life far from our borders Gabbard's disagreement is with American efforts to bring that democracy to a region that has never lied under Makhosi she's been concerned with the number of Americans who have died in the cause that sees no end with our goals intact and she's correct Russia tried for many years and failed United States has been fighting for twenty years and we have not experienced overwhelming success when it comes to winning most of the hearts in that region the Middle East is not Europe or Asia and our efforts in the Middle East are not going to have the same outcome we experienced with the end of World War two so what Tulsi Gabbard has rocked the Democrat a party as a questioning of the premise of a part of American foreign policy no other candidates of their approach that issue and no one has really challenged Gabbard's premise by the way Gabbard's premise is much closer to Donald trump's promises made during the twenty sixteen election to be sure president trump's current efforts include negotiating with the Taliban in order to secure our honorable exit from Afghanistan but cabins stubborn refusal to extricate herself in the race for the democratic presidential nomination has meant that she is vacating her seat in the house that means after new Congress takes over twenty twenty one her voice will not be heard a voice that question are long time efforts in various parts of the Middle East while the votes of many issues have not been anything conservatives could support her voice of questioning questionable foreign policies has been a valuable asset in the halls of Congress she never had a chance to win the democratic nomination but with our exit from the halls of Congress a voice for a reasonable foreign policy will be absent in the new Congress that is a voice that is needed and will be sorely missed I'm now in stock keep on thinking free breaking news.

Joe through a rough patch: Bidens super Tuesday
"This campaign sent down trump packing yesterday. Super Tuesday former Vice President. Joe Biden captured a clutch of states on the way to the nomination. The Democrats presidential candidate voters in Texas echoed. The view that Mr Biden presents a decent of reliable candidate in I've known so much about him for so long and he's a man of honor integrity and I think he will be excellent Senator Bernie. Sanders won his home. State of Vermont looks to be ahead in California for all the talk in the party that he would be a perilous pick plenty like his politics. I voted for Berry because he wants to get better rights. Everyone and then free healthcare but after a surge in South Carolina at a super Tuesday showing early promise of Mr Biden's campaign seems to have returned. Joe Has unbelievable sense of the understands people and he's been there and I trust them and it's why voted for him. Joe Biden had a very good night ethnic relative to expectations. And that's what matters most John. Prideaux is economists. Us Senator Bernie Sanders his two one. California which is the most delegate rich state but Biden did really well in other states including Texas which he wasn't projected to win a new few weeks ago. His campaign was being written off as being so dead and buried and people are encouraging him to drop out he now looks suddenly very competitive with Bernie Sanders and maybe even the likeliest nominees the Democratic Party. And how do you think it is that he managed that comeback? I think this result is a surprise. Joe Biden did well in South Carolina. Better even than people are expecting he was top of the polls there for a while but he really beat Bernie Sanders by a long way and this is a terribly cliche overused word. In presidential horse. Race Commentary Jason. But he's carried that momentum into Super Tuesday and done really well and it now looks like a prostitute horse race between him and Barney Saunders and what kind of nightmare standard have well. He didn't exactly have a bad night in the sense that he won. California the most delegate rich state he's done well in Colorado Utah. Put Tonight I tell you with absolute competence. We're going to win the Democratic nomination. I think relative to expectations having won the first few contests in the primary. It's not a very good performance for him if you look at his delegate numbers it looks like at the end of the night. He won't be miles behind Joe Biden but his campaign have been hoping that Super Tuesday would have put him so far ahead that he'd be the presumptive nominee and that hasn't happened. What about all the other horses in the race though well a couple of the horses dropped out before Super Tuesday? Both Pete. Beauty Judge Amy Klobuchar rivals for the moderate slug of Democratic voters dropped and endorsed Joe Biden before these primaries. That appears to help. Joe Biden a good deal. And how do you see that narrowing going forward well? Especially we'll be within Mike Bloomberg stays in. He said he would no matter. How many delegates we win tonight? We have done something. No one else thought was possible in just three months. We've gone from one percent of the polls to being a contender for the Democratic nomination for box. I think his performance was so poor that I'm not sure. He has much of a case to stay. Despite spending about half a billion dollars in advertising he did win American Samoa. That's not a great prize in the Democratic primary. If he works dropout I expect that would help Biden again. And what would really help? Biden is if at Mike Bloomberg puts his political funding his political machine that he's assembled very quickly behind Joe Biden both in the primary and then in the general election. What about Elizabeth Warren? Though you haven't mentioned her I didn't mention have for good reason Jason. She hasn't won a single state. That is a surprise. There are plenty of good things about her candidacy. She's rather skillful politicians. She has lots and lots of detail. Policies which is either a good thing or a handicap depending on your point of view and it looked like she might be just left wing enough to excite the party whilst being centrist enough not to scare to many people but she really hasn't done well she seems to have been another victim of this overcrowded. Primary She's also saying that she'll stay in the race. So here's my advice. Cast a vote. That will make you proud. Cast a vote from your heart and vote for the person you think. We'll make the best president of the United States but it's hard to see much point in her doing so particularly after she lost her home state in Massachusetts so once again in this election cycle the talk in early stages was just how broad The field was and now it's been narrowed down to to Washington heavyweights who've been in politics forever. How do you suppose that's happened from all that? Talk of of change and younger faces and diversity down to kind of a bit of the same old yeah. This is a very odd feature the Democratic primary isn't it? I mean if the two candidates are Biden and Saunders and one of will face Donald Trump in November donald trump will be the youngest candidate that race and the choice will be between three white males in their seventies. That's quite surprising. Given where the Democratic Party field started out and I think the main reason for that is just. There was so many candidates in the race. Jason that quite a lot of potentially rather good candidates got knocked out early on weren't able to pick up enough momentum when able to get any purchase in early primaries so I think that's really the reason why we've ended up with these. Two very familiar figures that both of them started with a bit of an advantage in that they had to some extent a group of loyal voters. They're really only candidates in the race. Who are in that position and in such a crowded field. That's quite a good place to start. And so is what we're seeing here. Kind of coalescing of the fear about Bernie Sanders and the degree to which. He's he's just kind of two out to too far out to to the left. The idea here. Is that Mr Biden is is the safer bet. D Do you agree with that assessment? It certainly looks that way to me. I mean I thought that it would be certainly a risk for the Democrats to run Bernie Sanders against president trump. If you asked Democratic voters they say their number one thing is that they want a candidate who can beat Donald Trump but then that opens up a whole argument about well what kind of candidate can beat Donald Trump and. There's one theory that you need to take on kind of firebrand and a fellow populist like Bernie Sanders. Different kind of populist. And there's another school of thought says. Actually you need to play it safe and Joe Biden is the ultimate sort of play. It safe candidacy. He's not terribly exciting as a candidate but looking at the numbers are lots of analysts thought that he had perhaps the best chance of beating Donald Trump so it looks like the alarm about his candidacy that it just might be taking a huge risk in. What's a very consequential? Election seems to translated into poor results him on Super Tuesday. So as you say we're entering a period where it's essentially a two horse race. Do you have a sense now? That things are crystallizing. A bit how it might go from here. I think one thing we can certainly say is the voters have a habit of confounding the predictions of pundit. There's still quite a long way to run in this thing and room for further slip up so I'd be reluctant to say Candida. Xl definitely be the nominee. That said it's still. It's quite likely that the Democrats will end up with a contested convention in July. And I say that if you look at remaining states is Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. Probably need to pick up maybe sixty percents of the remaining delegates. That's a high proportion and if I the Santus. All Biden fails to do that. The Democrats end up with a contested convention. So that's still looks like it's a fairly likely outcome. And so what are the things to watch as more primaries play out I think the things to watch our does Michael Bloomberg stand the race if he gets out how does that affect is Bernie? Sanders is Joe Biden. Able to build up such a commanding lead that they can win this thing. Outright get a majority of delegates before the convention or whether we'll end up with contested convention in which case people are going to start to get very interested in the intricacies and the rules of contested conventions. That's something we discussed on checks and balances on the economists other podcasts recently
Biden sweeps South, Texas, but California leans toward Sanders
"Super Tuesday belongs to Joe Biden he won nine state sweeping the south scoring a key victory in Texas Bernie Sanders appears to be winning in California the one Vermont Utah Colorado into Massachusetts to Mike Bloomberg's big investment only got on the small island in the Pacific he won the American Samoa
Breaking Down Super Tuesday's Results
"Have Texas called in the last five minutes by the Associated Press Four Biden which was a slight surprise. I mean this was something where it was looking like a sanders victory up until a few days ago the polls were deadlocked and what happened is in the last three or four days Bernie Bernie Sanders Lost a lot of states that he was slated to win and Joe Biden consolidated a significant chunk of the Democratic Party. So is this a two-horse race? Yeah I mean I think the question is is it a one horse race There there is a possibility that Biden will create an insurmountable lead Going into next week Because one thing that's also very striking if you look at the results is that Biden performed everywhere except for the places that had high proportions of early voting in other words. Four people voted before south. Carolina's results were known and the narrative was that Biden's candidacy was flailing and Bernie was ascendant. So in in everywhere else Biden really over performed in a big way. The other thing that's very important to note is that Sanders argument throughout this campaign has been that. He brings new voters to the table new voters to the ballot box and that simply hasn't been shown by the data and in fact last night everywhere where turnout was up dramatically and it was up dramatically in some key states biden one big so for the narrative that we need a large coalition to beat. Donald Trump in November. The data is showing. That Biden is doing that and Bernie is not and if you're Bernie supporter. I can understand that it's something that's a difficult pill to swallow but it's what. The empirical evidence is showing through these Super Tuesday results. I mean because sound is slightly scary for some voters because of the socialist labeled but he's not really socialist in the sense that we would understand it. That's right I mean. I think the when you think about this from a UK perspective. There's a lot of Corbin. Comparisons Bernie is not Corbin. He's not nearly as far left as Jeremy. Corbyn but the US is not as far left as Britain. The US is right of Britain. And I think what's also crucial to keep in mind here is that the twenty twenty race is going to be decided by six. Maybe seven swing states. And when you look at which ones those are. You're talking Michigan Pennsylvania Wisconsin Arizona. Florida Georgia those states have very little in common culturally. The one thing they have in common is that they're ideologically moderate and so when you look at places like I'm from Minnesota which trump lost by one and a half percent whether Bernie is socialist or not. That label is highly unpopular in the mid west. It's highly unpopular in places that are ideologically moderate. And so I think that you know Bernie was going to face. Some serious roadblocks to winning in November against trump with some of those label. Some of his comments from the past. That wouldn't have played well in the sort of you know bread and butter mid West Swing State voters who are ultimately centrists so Tuesday was going to belong to Bloomberg if we believed Bloomberg. That clearly isn't the case. Is he still in with a chance? And if he's not might he take those vast funds and place them behind some other candidate? Your answer great question. I think this is one of those things where you know for Democrats who have divided opinions on the candidates. I think the last night in America was a victory for Democracy with a small D. Because it showed that money can't buy elections. He spent a half a billion dollars. Five hundred million dollars and lost everywhere except for I think American Samoa. An overseas territory. So what Bloomberg is likely to do. I mean I've seen reports who knows what will happen by senior ports. He's going to reassess his candidacy tomorrow. if he's smart and his advisors are smart. He'll drop out Wednesday morning. Us Time and throw his billions of dollars behind whoever the Democratic nominee is and I think just to you a scale of how rich Michael Bloomberg is. I did the math on this if I gave you. Five thousand dollars a day every day. Three hundred sixty five days a year. I would have had to start doing that in thirty two. Thousand B C Twenty. Two thousand years before the woolly. Mammoth went extinct for you to have as much money as Michael Bloomberg today so he has a lot of cash and that cash is going to go very likely behind. Joe Biden's candidacy in the coming days and very much the sharp end of the Spear Against Donald Trump going into the general election. So before we get onto what I suspect is really very good news. Just a quick chat about the other candidates Elizabeth Warren and you'll see above who are still in the race. I mean seem not for much longer. Yeah I expect. Warren will probably drop out tomorrow. Tulsi Gabbard Should have dropped out months ago. Chelsea Gabbert has a constituency of exactly one person in that person's name has Tulsi Gabbard But you know Warren Warren I. I've been surprised by. She ran a formidable campaign. She's extremely smart and has done a great job in exciting of voters about her plans. So I would expect that there will be a push to get her endorsements For either Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden. I also think that the the Democratic nominee would be very wise to pledge to bring Elizabeth Warren at at a minimum as a core adviser for the campaign the administration And possibly as vice presidential candidate or a senior adviser in the I also I mean the piece that I'm writing for the Washington Post. This morning is going to call for Biden to come out with a vice presidential pick now and I think the reason for that is because the party is divided between the sanders farther left wing and the Biden more centrist moderate wing and binding could go a really long way if he announced somebody like Elizabeth Warren Kamala Harris Stacey from somebody who fires up the Progressive Wing of the Party And and causes who are a little further left of bite into say you know what he understands us? He accepts that were part of the coalition to win and he's going to be running the candidacy that speaks to us. Not just to the moderates and of course the bottom line is who can beat trump. And you're of the opinion. That could be done. Yeah I mean I think this is something. Where were if you look at the swing states? That matter in November Biden is somewhat tailor-made for those states And there's been this narrative since two thousand sixteen because the political class so to speak was surprised by trump's victory that there's the secret sauce. That trump has that. He'll win no matter what but if you look at the polls. I mean most of the national polls have Biden up by eight points to nine points against trump and keep in mind. That trump was so worried about biden beating him that he able to get impeached over it. Dry trying to trying to damage Biden. And if you look at trump's tweets he is trying to say you know so. Division on behalf of Bernie saying the Democratic Establishment is trying to Rob Bernie Sanders supporters of their victory. Simply because he thinks that the way he wins either with Bernie candidacy over the divided party. Keep in mind that the the Democratic Establishment did not rob Bernie Sanders of the voters. The voters robbed Bernie Sanders the voters in this time because You know he he. Simply he lost the race You know ran I think fairly squarely one thing. That's very interesting to note going forward if Bernie decides to stay in the race. Even if next Tuesday's results are not favorable for him is that in two thousand sixteen when Bernie Sanders was trailing the delegate count. He said that it should matter. Only if you get a majority of delegates not a plurality he was going to fight to the convention and try to say though pick me as the nominee even if I don't have the most delegates this time around when he's had the most delegates when he's been the lead he said the exact opposite he said. If you have a plurality of delegates you should be the nominee will. We're headed for a scenario? After last night in which Joe Biden goes into convention potentially not with a majority but with a plurality and Bernie Sanders is on the records. Now saying that person should be the nominee so he may end up regretting Those words but it is. It is something that sets a precedent by which even if Biden does not get over the fifty percent threshold. That the rules say you have to. You could have his main opponent on camera many many times saying that effectively. If he's got the plurality he should be the nominee. I mean. A gamer of then Biden may yet beat trump. But we're assuming that this will be a fair fight and of course. There's nothing that you can see him about trump. We do not know how how badly he may try and ski this race. Yeah I mean this is why prognostication is a very dangerous game in In Two thousand twenty is that you have a lot of things that trump is going to be willing to do to break the rules. We we've seen that. I mean he was impeached because he tried to use US foreign policy and hundreds of millions of dollars to get a foreign government to investigate a political opponent in two thousand sixteen. Of course he called to jail his uplift his political opponent And and of course there's going to be the wildcards of Russian interference information more at CETERA. But there's also the wild card of the corona virus and how that's going to affect the race which causes some serious uncertainty forecasting months if not weeks into the future and we don't know how that's going to shake out but yes I mean I think if you're looking at places where trump is vulnerable and where he needs to win. Joe Biden is the candidate who is more like voters in those states than Bernie Sanders. I mean is something where you know in Minnesota where I'm from a neighboring Wisconsin. Both States Democrats need to win if they WanNa win and twenty twenty. Those states are not the ones calling for a socialist revolution outside of potentially progressive core in the urban centers. And what Biden did last night. Was He brought suburban voters to the polls and those people are the people who propelled the Democrats to the twenty eighteen victory in the house. So you know it's about building. A coalition of Progressives ideological moderates and even some Republicans who thank you know what trump is not a safe pair of hands to have when the country is facing a crisis like it is with corona virus. I think that might be the argument going forward. Brian. Thank you very much indeed. That's Brian Class in. Incidentally it's the first time I've seen him smile since two thousand and

Joe Biden has 18-point lead in South Carolina, new poll shows
"But we begin at this hour for with your update from South Carolina now everyone including me sort of precipitously declare Joe Biden's campaign debt that's because he finished horribly and I will finish horribly in New Hampshire barely finish second in Nevada and so the the sort of going wisdom was that he was gonna collapse in South Carolina as well there's a new polling data out and it's showing that maybe his bat on that South Carolina firewall maybe he wasn't entirely wrong there two new polls out today one is from East Carolina University initialed by number eight thirty one percent to twenty three percent for Bernie Sanders and a second poll from Clemson University that shows a Biden up eighteen percent eighteen percent say blow out for a bite and that follows hot on the heels of a public policy poll that shows that that Biden is up fifteen percent which means that the new poll average in South Carolina she was a big spike for Biden it shows Biden is according to FiveThirtyEight shows Biden at thirty one percent in Sanders a twenty one percent if Biden would blow out Sanders in South Carolina in fact there's a new poll that shows the tenders actually running below times tire in South Carolina believe or not if Bernie were to finish third in South Carolina and buy more to clean up in South Carolina this radically region there's the race in a serious serious way why will suddenly it appears that Joe Biden is a living human being and that is a massive thing because then we move on to super Tuesday and once we get super Tuesday remember South Carolina has a lot of delegates I don't want it all gets once you get to super Tuesday if Biden is cleaning up in the southern states and Bernie is cleaning up in the northern states in say California you could very easily end up with an incredibly close race sirtuin allergies that are out about this today they're worth checking into because maybe this race isn't quite so over as we were expecting depending on what happens on to everything comes out of Saturday okay if Biden doesn't win in South Carolina the suckers over Sanders the nominee if Biden wins and very very close Sanders is still likely the nominee if Biden wins it just blows Sanders out of Sanders completely collapses in South Carolina if he gets going in South Carolina suddenly this looks like a race because you could end super Tuesday with a very close race in terms of delegate count and then it is a two man race Sanders and Biden down to the wire with presumably Bloomberg continuing to pour hundreds of millions of dollars into anti Sanders ads and all establishment money moving over by these bad really hasn't picked up a lot of money yet because frankly he's a corpse so five thirty eight has an analysis they're looking at super Tuesday so super Tuesday they're a bunch of states that our programs are California Texas North Carolina Virginia Massachusetts Minnesota Colorado Tennessee Alabama Oklahoma Arkansas Utah Maine Vermont and American Samoa those are the the states and territories that are open on super Tuesday but a late check out daily wire would have live coverage all evening long on super Tuesday Sanders is widely expected to do very well in California the polls are showing that right now in Texas Sanders and Biden running neck and neck but if Jenner is Barbara blowouts Anderson South Carolina that obviously changes things rather radically in North Carolina Sanders is running slightly ahead of iden but again if I does real well in South Carolina that may change radically in terms of North Carolina right now Sanders expected to do well in Virginia began that could change radically Massachusetts Sanders will win handily walking away Sanders is expected to compete pretty evenly with club which are in Minnesota is expected to win handily in Colorado in Tennessee Alabama Oklahoma you should expect a big bite and boost if in fact Sanders were to collapse in South Carolina the same is true of Arkansas probably true in Utah probably true in in major American Samoa but that's like four four votes in in terms of delegate count five thirty eight as it should be a good night for Sanders delegate wise just as it should be in terms of votes for forecasting and to take on five hundred eighty seven delegates but remember that's in the average model running some runs he gets more others fewer but by name Bloomberg are also forecasted to get three hundred and five and two hundred eleven delegates now this is something you noticed Bloomberg is dropping precipitously in state polls he is dropping precipitously in national polling so the flavor of the week is done those last two debates have not how Bloomberg he's looking credibly week warnings taken out Bloomberg basically which means maybe that those voters go back to Biden if Biden shows that he is not a dead human in South Carolina warrant bridging club which are far bar far behind judge not significant number of delegates only out of California club which are from Minnesota and warm from California Texas Massachusetts in the five thirty eight numbers but here is the key says Nate silver at FiveThirtyEight these numbers could and likely will change they're still just under a week before super Tuesday plenty of time for the race to shift as we had a debate on Tuesday night and South Carolina but Saturday even small fluctuations in vote share can greatly affect the number of delegates each of these candidates gets that's because in order to be eligible for any delegates from a state or district a candidate has to get at least fifteen percent of the vote there and many non Sanders candidates are hovering right around fifteen percent in many states California is a good example on average they say we're currently forecasting by twin fourteen percent seventeen percent of the vote there warns when fourteen bluebirds went thirteen judge when ten because California is what so many delegates who gets fifteen percent is super important if the numbers were right only Biden Sanders we get a share of California's a hundred and forty four statewide delegates but minor variation could really scramble the picture so it's a mess it's a mess again those polling numbers in South Carolina and it's not those late breaking pulling numbers out of South Carolina it looks actually quite strong for Joe Biden

But today, they have resumed their selloff with notion. That Hong Kong is out of action today, the Tykes in Taipei also under pressure by one cent. You can say that there is once read selling coming through in all of these markets and also watching very closely what's been happening in the currency markets because you have seen the one full today. In fact, the off show falling to its lowest level since January full. And of course, as we would expect gain strength as well said again continuing to be bid along with a move in treasuries as well. The yield on the US tenure dropping by about three basis points and Menez you've been talking about as well, these big drop that you've been seeing in US equity futures suggesting that they will continue their decline after the worst week of twenty nine teen. But really it is. Is that typical day of risk off? You've got money going treasuries into gin into other safe haven assets. And certainly out of equities once again today menace. Joe's just going to some of the copen. You still got a little bit on this. I'm a little bit until Sheba. What is it that caught your eye specifically today? Yeah.

It had a more than six percent drop joining the Friday session menace. Joe's. Thank you very much with the very latest on the Asian market movers attention box. It's GCC. We built in equities report if any by gieco, so Saudi stalks Philippe, they have lost the most since November. They're extending the losses to seven sessions. Vol is surging this to be happy day inclusion day, where's all the global equity market rights? But let's this doesn't mean it's not going to be happy month for Saudi. But let's say that volatility's back to a market where things were pretty linear. So far as the beginning of two dozen nineteen as you mentioned, if if we look at tend to historic volatilities, very short term measure, but it shows us that we're back to the level where we were in December. It's the highest since the beginning of the year, and that it happens pretty much the same time as we see retry like the main index has been fully since the day of the inclusion of. The second faces of the footsie upgrade. So it's just it's natural for some investors. Should just stick some profit after this event is behind us. But at the same time, it's not an easy home in international markets. We know that this is not the best context for this to happen. The biggest pressure points in story. Well, guess what? It's going to be from the banks the sucker to everyone. Gives us an example of the best one of the best bets in the Saudi market right now. And it's also quite natural to see this correction right now because if we look at the banking index white lightning our monitoring. Now, it's it's it's been increasing steadily since the announcement by June last year, it was up close to forty percent within a twelve month period earlier this month before description started having still up twenty five percent if you look and compared to emerging market banks, which are trading close to zero and just to the negative territory. You're still making quite a bit of money with Saudi banks want to keep an on that. I mean, what are the other names that are going to be the most important you maybe DP world democracy. Well, we'll his will we have the miss a announcement coming out after markets close into US today. We will find out what are the Saudi stocks was percentage that they are going. Having the first faces off the inclusion later this month, but the announcement is also regarding the this stocks that are part of the index ready, and we have very high expectation that some names in Dubai are going to be excluded democ development, Emaar moles. So those are some of that that could be on the reader for investors that could be selling after the season DP road on top. Of course, trade everything that's related to treat tints to impact this stock of more. And then we have I w w on the opposite end could be positive news for them because they could get a much higher percentage within the benchmark tussle between five and Emerson on the valuation story. Thank you so much equities reporter with me this morning taking you through Monday morning, rob for stocks, Pepe checkup back to the big subject of the day. Trade wars does emerging market agenda and worries a skepticism of the deal gross affects volatility had its biggest jump since this with some investment. Highs is cutting their investment in emerging market debt. So is it tough times ahead. Just as the end to the JP Morgan index. Let's bring him one man with an opinion stating CIO Franken tenth Bilton investments. Good to see you. Good morning. So we joined J P Morgan someone say, oh my gosh. Just maybe the wrong time. But can I ask you to one extent GTC sovereigns a defensive play in this trade wool angst that we have? So first of all, I think the inclusion into JP Morgan is is a very positive step. I mean, this is the first of international index that provides something of a home for GCC bond market has been homeless for the past. So unambiguously very positive and within the JP Morgan index. You're right. The bond market is the higher quality components of that index. And so why much of the attention has been focused on how the inclusions gonna really help that you see on markets. I think people tend to underestimate the positive impact. Did you see what have to to the m B universe in that? Makes it the higher quality universe. It may reduce the volatility of that index because as you know, bond markets have competitive returns, but with a third of the volatility of emerging markets, so high quality and the less volatile component into the index. I know why you're the head. I know the CIO had to say there's that she can spend it around. But you would also say, I it's a very fair point, which is quality returns with lower volatility, which takes me to the point that you make is that ownership is still perhaps we're live at under owned and under loved in a relative sense. I mean, you know in general. We've our research showed that you have been chronically underway the region and this inclusion into JP Morgan will happen over time. I mean, people won't just portfolios from zero to eighteen percent, which is the estimated wait that they're going to have in the index by the end of the year within a short period of time, especially when you consider that most international investment managers. You know, aren't very familiar with this region. Carry pretty strong misconceptions about the risk of to it. So we think it's going to be a multi year process. However during the time, we expect the characteristics that the region has enjoyed to persist and that's named the the lower volatility. The competitor returns the correlations. So all of these things the little value to emerging market portfolios equity portfolios or to global bump portfolios. It's interesting that you say chronically onto love, which they probably addenda fi even more. So in terms of underlying geopolitical risk is contract and Saudi Arabia Saudi Arabia because the story because of the political impasse between the U A on this. I'm trying to work out. Haiku haiku me look at this story. These are the CD is in on themselves. They don't tell stellar story. There's a slight difference dean counterpart concentrating under Sidey, but these two base that draw the most international. Perspective. Really? No, I think we would have to include the UAE because largest sure and the region, but to your point I mean, looking chart you can see we've had over the past few months gradual reduction and those spreads over the last few months. We've also seen a grudge reduction in the level of interest rates. So it's very strong four months. Total performance for the region. But what the starts telling you is that cuts which is supposed to be a higher credit quality has been trading in line with Saudi principally because of carries slightly higher geopolitical risk because of what's been going on in the region with embargo, and the confrontations with hud's, but we was cushioned that in general people tend to Societa the region with a lot of risk coming from the geopolitics also come in from its association with old prices, which are very volatile. However, all the evidence suggests that the bond markets are much less volatile than both of those. Okay. So so so that's one reason. Inextricably linked that we've got the peg in the UAE to to to the US and the market seems to have regained its transient about more rate. Cuts to come on the United States America as a heist. How do you look at it? So the house is premature the view is the US consumers doing pretty well US girls should be inflation. You're right now, I think some of our colleagues thing that inflation may come in on personal view, the that may be premature to call. I mean, we think the risks are really tilted to the downside. So that makes us fairly comfortable holding onto the modulation that the market holds. But within the market may be pricing might be a little bit bearish. But there's no doubt that the fed has shifted its view inflation is benign, and the we're gonna need to see. The data really support fed move right now, it doesn't look like much is going to be supporting that argument. The other thing that we would caution. And the thing that probably is making me feel a little bit concern is that there's a big disconnect between what the FX market. So telling you what the rate markets are telling you, the rates markets are tending you this raped hiking cycle is over with. And there may be a cut like you say that this year early next year. Whereas if you look at the FX market, it's clearly more of a risk of dollar strength. I mean while over those three months old it's very well for us. It's it's noticeable about you've seen the dollar remained quite strong over this four months. And so you know, we are. So I think they got a little bit concerned. And does a consequence we are beginning to take some risk off the table yet. We raise David Bloom space because he reckons the dollars hotel, California. You can check in you just contact. It's hard to walk away from that kind of you. Great conversation, covered a great deal of breath. That's my guess. Morning. I on markets here on the bones.
