Mark Davis in for Dennis. A certain Texas twang coming from George, if not from me, but a certain Texas flavor when I am here and it is always a joy to be here. Mark Davis from 660 AM, the answer where I am the happy morning host. And boy, was I happy to be here this morning. Happy being a relative term. It was demanding for everybody because I'm here in central time talking to the West Coast crew out there in Pragerland where everybody was working really late between radio and the Salem News Channel. Just fantastic coverage last night, post debate, all kinds of opinions flying thick and fast. So I'm just really enormously pleased to be here in one of my frequent fill -ins. It's always a joy to be here for Dennis. And you can follow me on Twitter or X or Guacamole or whatever they're calling that thing these days, at Mark Davis, M -A -R -K Davis. And the best way to get ahold of us, of course, is the phone lines that are used in the show every day. 1 -8 -Praeger -776, 1 -8 -Praeger -776. Again, I'm Mark Davis here in the big bustling DFW. And wherever you are, I have some things I need to know from you. You ready? And what I'm gonna do is put some of it in question form. Most of my obvious offering is to get your thoughts and ask the blanket question. What did you think of the two big things that you could see last night? One of them was the debate on a stage in Milwaukee. And the other one was seen by perhaps 10 times more people. I mean, are we at 200 million? At some point, everyone in America, if not around the world, will have seen Trump on Tucker. And we'll talk a little bit about whether it was smart for Trump to do Tucker instead of the debate. It certainly wasn't dumb, it certainly didn't hurt him. Because after all, as we've learned by now, nothing hurts him, at least not yet. And by the way, every candidate on the stage last night, every candidate on the stage last night, dreams of having a bump, having a boost like Trump will get today from another arraignment. This time under the aggressive thumb of Fannie Willis in Fulton County in Atlanta, Georgia. He will turn himself in at some point and you will then almost be able to palpably sense the fundraising boost, the poll boost. Here is the truth of the Trump poll numbers. There's something we know, but there's something numerical we don't know. Again, one eight Prager 776, one eight Prager 776. Talk about Trump's decision not to be on that debate stage. And then we'll talk about everybody that was on that debate stage. Cuz it was a fascinating night for Vivek, a so -so night for DeSantis. A really good night for Tim Scott, a surprisingly, momentarily at least interesting night for Mike Pence. Nikki Haley did great, but did she get enough Mike time? Chris Christie, that New Jersey bully boy thing, that just gets really old, really fast. And Doug Burgum and Asa Hutchinson were there as well, which is about the old, I got nothing bad to say about these guys. I've got nothing bad to say about these guys. Hutchinson was an okay governor of Arkansas, really needs to be awakened on some of the gender clarity necessities. Doug Burgum seems like a wonderful guy, and what a tough nut, keyword nut. Who plays basketball the night before a debate? Who does something that has even a remote injury risk? My colleague Mike Gallagher and I were talking, and he said, if I'm on the debate stage the following day, I'm putting myself in lockdown. I'm gonna be in bed, in some type of pneumatic bubble. Nothing will get to me, but so that I don't rip open my Achilles tendon. Which he did, so he had to crutch himself onto the stage. And I don't wanna be cynical enough to say that this strikes me as debate theater and that it was faked. I don't believe that, I don't wanna be that guy, I don't wanna be that cynical, but I will be this judgmental. How dumb is it to do something the night before a debate that can hurt you? So of course, I know driving on the highway can hurt you and da, da, da, da. So I have all kinds of hot takes on how I think everybody did. I'm gonna frame it in terms of what I expected versus how they did. And then we'll talk about what I expected from Trump on Tucker. I expected it to be stratospherically good, and it was. So we have specific Trump on Tucker observations, and we have specific debate participation observations. And it all takes place against this glorious, fascinating backdrop of late August, 2024. Here we are, we are still September, October, November. So we're still four and a half months before anybody votes for anything. Change is still possible, but how plausible is it? How many times have you heard people say, yeah, in this particular year, by this point, Newt Gingrich was in the lead? Yeah, in this particular year, Rudy Giuliani was in the lead. Well, guess what was not going on when Newt, obviously, neither gentleman ever became president or ever will, it seems, for multiple reasons. There was no Trump, nobody had a 50 point lead. It was just wide open, it was five or six or eight or 10 or 14 or 17 people all running now. Trump is the alpha dog, the king of the hill. There is nothing that has dented his support yet. I will tell you the one thing, I wouldn't even say might, I'd say the only thing that can, the only thing that can, and I'll do that here in a second. In fact, probably got to get to that first. 18 Prager 776, 18 Prager 776. And again, my name, Mark Davis, follow me on Twitter, X, whatever you want to call it. I can't say X, it's Twitter to me, I don't know, I'm an old fart, what can I say? At Mark Davis, and I'll take a look at those during the break. But the best way to get ahold of us, of course, with your thoughts, 776. 18 Prager Okay, I do have a fresh column in the Fort Worth Star Telegram, I'm proud to write for the Star Telegram and the McClatchy newspaper chain and Newsweek and Town Hall, but the thing I did an immediate, I pretty well do mean immediate, turnaround reaction column for was the Star Telegram. So if you go to star -telegram .com and look at opinions, find me, Mark Davis, there is my column that talks about how Vivek and Pence and Tim Scott helped themselves. I mean, the only people who did, but they did. But the enduring question, the enduring question is, can anybody catch Trump? Is that even possible? So if we start with the premise that they say anything is possible, not anything, okay? Asa Hutchinson, Doug Burgum, or Will Hurd winning the nomination is as close to not possible as the English language permits, okay? But let's just say that in these turbulent times, where almost everything seems volatile, it was volatility that kind of lofted Trump in 2016. There were a lot of frustrations, there he was, he seemed anti -establishment, he caught the wind of that in the sales of so many Americans. The timing was just, it was perfect for Trump. Now, eight years, next month, wow, he and Melania came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower. In a way, it seems like yesterday, in a way, it seems like 100 years ago. But anyway, everybody knows him now. And the love for him and hatred of him are both baked in so solid, so two things are true at the same time. With Trump as the nominee, you're going to get two things, guaranteed two things. The love for him and the devotion to him and the desire to flip a huge middle finger to the establishment that now pursues and persecutes him, that will be on fire with energy. The other thing that's gonna be on fire with energy, every Democrat, Biden could be actually dead and on the ticket, and Democrats will crawl on broken glass and walk through fire to deliver another loss to Trump. So that will be in furious force. So which of those forces, which of those phenomena is greater? I don't know, and neither do you. Are there risks to making Trump your nominee? There sure are. But are there risks that a whole lot of people seem totally willing to take? Yes, indeedy. So what is the one thing that might erode Trump support? And I'm not saying it will, but it's the only thing that can. I'll tell you next, and take your calls next, 1 -8 Prager 776. Mark Davison for Dennis. The Dennis Prager Show.

So, whether you are watching, or listening, or both, we appreciate it. Mark Davison for Dennis here on Debate Night. I was gonna say morning after, depending on your time zone, the day after, what do we think? I'm gonna take some calls here and sort of intermingle my specific thoughts about how each candidate did. And of course, you know what the short part is, how Trump did with Tucker? Simply superb. It was just vintage Trump for 47 minutes and it was awesome. It was just a reminder of how great he is and why everybody wants him back, or nearly everybody wants him back. I will tell you, not to be a curmudgeon about this, but I still think he should have been on the debate stage. I totally understand his logic. Why should I? They're 50 points behind me. I don't need to show up for this. I totally get it. He's right about that. It did not hurt him to not be there, but it was a missed opportunity. There are millions of people for whom the last 10 times they heard Trump talk, it was all about Jack Smith, and Fannie Willis, and Alvin Bragg, and this persecution, and that lawsuit, and this vendetta, and that witch hunt, all of which is true. But it can be fatiguing to some folks who are not a junkie for this. And this would have been an opportunity for Trump with a bunch of rivals, and a bunch of pretenders to be sure, and a bunch of people at 0 .5%, and I know, I know, I know, I know, I know. But it would have been him talking about borders. It would have been him talking about crime. It would have been him talking about climate, which by the way, he did with Tucker, but he could have done that too. Not to get greedy, but why not do the debate and then sit down with Tucker tonight? Wouldn't that have worked? So yeah, but it was a statement. I understand it was a statement. It was a positioning statement that says, I don't even need to be on that stage as they all run for who's going to be the last person left when there are two candidates left standing. That is, by the way, what last night's debate was about. It's what the entire campaign is about for everybody not named Trump. At some point in the spring, there'll be two candidates left. One of them will be named Donald Trump, and the other one will not. And everybody wants to be that other person. And forever it looked obvious that it was going to be DeSantis. It doesn't look that way so much right now. Now it could really be the vague. Will that sustain? Is this kind of a flash in the summer pan? I don't know. Your thoughts are welcome. 18 Prager 776. As I get ready to go to the phones, here's the thing. Everybody, I get asked this all the time. Is there anything that could change the calculus? Anything where Trump just doesn't have that 50 point lead anymore? Because while we're talking math, here's what's undeniably true. Trump can win the nomination, can breeze to the nomination without poaching one single supporter from anybody on that stage last night. Obviously, he could do it tomorrow. DeSantis, just to pick somebody or the vague, let's go with DeSantis for the moment. He needs to poach half of the Trump poll numbers. He's got to go get half of those people. Half of the people saying we want Trump, half of the 50 some percent, if not more, who say we want Trump, who say that now in August, have to stop saying that by the time people are really voting in Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina, and Nevada, etc, etc. So what is the one way that happens? And this is a half court shot, maybe a full court shot. And that is that some of the poll emotions right now, some of it, most of it is we want this guy to be president. We loved him then, we love him now, we want this guy to be president. You know, the usual earth logic that people use in expressing support for a candidate. But some of it, and it'll have to be a lot of it. And I don't know that it is. But certain x percentage of it has to be folks who may or may not require Trump to be their next president. But they are furious at what's being done to him. It is a show of support. I mean, why do you think the poll numbers will go up after he is arraigned today in Atlanta? Is it because a bunch of people will just look at issues around America and decide, oh, he is my guy? Some may, but most of the poll bursts and the fundraising bursts that happen after each continuing litany of indictments is people saying, oh, hell no. It's what I call the Jason Whitlock effect. Jason Whitlock is the wonderful broadcaster, blogger, who was on the Tucker one, I think might have been after the first indictment or the second one, I lose track. Jason Whitlock was on with Tucker when Tucker was on Fox and said, I don't even know what I think about Trump. I'm halfway with him, halfway not. I like some of what he does, some of it not. I don't know. But tonight I'm hardcore MAGA. Tucker, tonight I am hardcore MAGA, Jason Whitlock said. And it was as a statement of revulsion at what was being done to him. Now, if that's a bunch of Trump support, cuz here it is in one nutshell. By the time we get to, we go through Christmas, we go through the holidays, everybody digests their holiday meals. And then we all get rolling in January of 2024. And millions of Republicans go, whoa, okay, now it's what's always been serious. But now it's time, time with a capital T. It's not about whether we don't like Jack Smith or whether we think 2020 was rigged or whether we're just not about anything else. Other than it's about one thing, one thing, who beats Biden? Who gives us the best chance of beating Biden? And if the similar numbers of people who think so today think that that's Trump, and by the way, it may well be, then nothing will change. All these campaigns, all the DeSantis's, all the Viv Hanks, all the everybody's, I don't wanna say it'll be for naught, but it will not bear fruit. It will not bear fruit. If, however, and it's funny because right now we got the sort of the fresh angst, the renewed emotion and determination of what will happen after Trump is dragged before yet another tribunal for yet another non -crime. And we can talk about this some today if you want. There's really only one thing out of every single one of these stupid persecution prosecutions, all these indictments, all these things. Really, they only got him on one thing. There's one thing that he just really should have done differently. And that's the handling of those stupid documents. Give back the stupid documents. If you do that, then that's not even a problem. But all this election related stuff is insane. He thinks he got screwed. And guess what? So do I. Guess what? So do most of you. We don't get to believe that. And if we're him, we don't get to act on that and make phone calls and secure meeting space and tweet to somebody to watch a TV show, all of which has been criminalized by these lunatic prosecutors. But in January of 2024, it's not gonna be about that anymore. No matter how we feel about that. No matter how we feel and no matter how resentful we are of that and how much we wanna stick with him. And I mean, in that regard, if millions of people say, God bless you, sir, God bless you, we love your presidency. We want those policies back, but the damage seems to have been done.
Are Dems Setting Precedent for Punishing Political Enemies?
"We've laid out here, if you're looking for a crime, the only crime that had been committed, if in fact a crime was committed was a financial misdemeanor. And for that, the district attorney wants to literally handcuff and shackle Donald Trump. Keep in mind, this is a guy who received $1 million from George Soros. This is a man who campaigned on a promise to get Donald Trump. Letitia James, the attorney general of New York. Campaigned on the same promise to get Donald Trump. They have weaponized the judicial system. Look at what's happening in Atlanta, Georgia, where once again you have a George Soros funded district attorney going after president Trump. That one could get very ugly because apparently they're looking at RICO violations. Suggesting that Trump was trying to coerce the Secretary of State and to changing vote totals in the state of Georgia. But really, this is all about stopping Donald Trump and punishing political enemies. And this is why it is incumbent upon every freedom loving American, and even I would appeal to some of you you Democrats out there who still believe in the constitution who still believe in the rule of law, I have to hope and pray there are still some of you out there. And we all need to stand up and say, we're not going to tolerate this. We're not going to allow you to turn our country into some sort of a, of a Soviet style, police state. We're just not going down that path. Am I grave concern is that Republicans are going to return the favor if they ever get back in control of the House and this pardon me of the Senate and The White House? We can not go down this path as a nation. We can not, we can not be jailing our political enemies.

Treehouse Antifa Sacks CopCity With Jack Posobiec
"Have down here in Atlanta. Is this situation where when we were told, you know, we're told in the media, we're told in the press, 23 protesters arrested by police and left wing sources are out there saying this, go and watch these videos because we've got flir video from overhead drone imagery that's infrared forward looking infrared flir. Of a crowd that looks to me like 50 to 60 strong in a coordinated attack, spilling forth from the Woods at a police training facility outside of Atlanta, Georgia. This is run by the Atlanta police department. Now Charlie, you remember, as well as I, that it's the left that is always saying the police needs to be better trained. It's always the left saying the police should have, they should have shot him in the arm. They should have tried deescalation. They should have tried everything else. Well, the police said, okay, fine, we're going to go into the Woods and set up a training facility and we're going to do just that. Well, antifa is now attacking it. And people want to laugh about the left using violence. The people want to say, oh, they're not that great at it. Oh, they suck at it, et cetera, et cetera. Guess what? They're actually out there doing it. Because they have something in their movement that I don't always see on the right, and that's called moral clarity. They actually and truly believe in the violent actions that they are doing. And I'm not saying the right should ever condone violence, but my point is the right needs moral clarity in our in our positions and in our values if we were actually going to fight to take back this country. These are the people who fervently believe in destroying our country, tearing it down because they hate the people that run the place now. They hate the people who founded it. They hate our institutions, and they hate the west. And it's as simple as that. You don't need all of the philosophy and ideology to understand. They just hate you, and they want to take away everything that you have. But do we know who the ringleader of this was? This was a domestic leader. This was a domestic terror attack. We don't know specifically who the ringleader was yet, but they call themselves hashtag stop cop city.
Robyn Pfaffman: Rioters Detained at Atlanta Police Training Site
"Antifa down there, going to war with the police and nobody's talking about it on the national stage. Yeah, it's really it's a scary situation, basically I'll sum it up in about 30 seconds for you. There is a parcel of land. Acres and acres right on the edge of Atlanta between Fulton and da cab county. And they are putting up a 90 million that's 9 zero million police and fire training academy. Wouldn't you think that after everything we've been through with George Floyd, BLM, all sorts of cases that have gone on that you would want your police firefighters EMS first responders trained at a new facility, one would think, right? Except that you have this very organized funded by whoever flying people in from out of state. You had people here from Utah, Colorado, Massachusetts, Maine, and then you had two foreign dudes, one from France and one from Canada. How did they get here? Last I looked, those tickets are over a $1000 one way or round trip to Atlanta, Georgia. It's not cheap to fly anymore. And here they are. All these outside agitators with the exception of one guy from the southern poverty law center that left wing institution. He was arrested and now luckily they're facing a domestic terrorism charges, so at least they're not going to be getting out in a revolving door. These people actually have to hire attorneys for setting it on fire. They set some equipment on fire. They set a police car on fire. They were throwing bricks sticks, rocks, shooting off firecrackers at the police. They deserve what they get.
'Stop Cop City' Rioters Rage After Police Return Fire on Criminal
"You to hear some journalist David somebody. I don't know or care who he is. He probably writes for Rolling Stone or somebody. He's talking on CNN about what Atlanta's know full well was violence and rage over the shooting death of an antifa guy who reportedly shot and nearly killed a state trooper. It's one of these autonomous zones all over again in Atlanta, they don't want the wacky loony left, doesn't want a police training academy in an area in a wooded area of Atlanta. And so they have occupied the area. I think I saw it on social media last night, something about the forest or save the forest or the anti whatever it is. It's another autonomous zone like Seattle has in Portland, Atlanta, Georgia put up with this? These punks that are think they can occupy a territory? And when the police finally came to clear them out, one young man shot and nearly killed one of the law enforcement officers who promptly returned fire and then killed him. And antifa was so enraged that this kind saintly young man was killed that they ramp took went on a rampage through the streets of Atlanta.
Herschel Walker: The People of Georgia Want Someone New
"Right now the campaign is going well You know they spent close to $50 million against me And what is so exciting is to raise a virtually a tide right now which means that Georgia people are speaking that they want a new person in that seat that they're tired of having someone like senator Warnock represented them because he doesn't represent Georgia and Joe Biden And he's very much the radical isn't he I mean for any state he would be considered extremely radical wouldn't he He is and he's voted with Joe Biden 96% of the time and what that means is that you're going to get higher taxes You're going to get open borders You're going to get men and women sports with these voters to put men and women sports He's called our men and women in blue thugs and gains So he is very radical but one thing I must say is right now I'm going to fight to get the seat back for the people of Georgia because this seat belongs to the people at George They don't need any more center and why not sit in that seat representing them What do you consider some of the big issues there in Georgia Well this economy is a huge issue There's economy as a big issue because right now trying to forward growth rate and also utility bills I think utility bills are coming out and also you got to think about the crime In Atlanta Georgia homicide is up over 40% and some of that is very surprising rape is up over 200% I think our criminals have gotten very bold because people like senator were not that pleased with Joe Biden vote for these judges that was self on crime that the criminals got voted And as senator why not continue to call off the thugs and criminals it got morale down
"atlanta, georgia" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"With David Westin on Bloomberg radio Atlanta Georgia like so many thriving cities in the United States has its own fair share of opportunities as well as a few challenges along the way Andre Dickens has been Atlanta's mayor since January I asked how he is dealing with gun violence in his city and whether that new federal gun law could make a difference Gun violence is out of control across this country as I sit with mayors at the U.S. conference of mayors We all talked about how we needed Washington to do something to enact sensible legislation around gun control as a mayor of a thriving city We do have incidents of gun violence and I want to see it in We're doing all weekend with police and also with youth programming and outreach initiatives and a lot of things that we're doing to build community but at the end of the day a lot of the violence ends with a gunshot I want to go to that building community because you came to office saying that's one of your top priorities and people say that you're a pretty fast out of the blocks there down there if I can sit put it away at the same time You had the Buckhead situation where they actually wanted to secede They failed at it But driven in part by violence is I understand it Is it dividing our communities Yeah absolutely right out of the gate you know I was a city councilman for 8 years So when I took the helm as mayor I went right into a balanced approach to safety and justice and making sure we had community based programming from my midnight basketball program to establishing a nightlife division to cut down on issues related to clubs bars and restaurants We have youth working 3000 youth in our city working this summer throughout summer jobs program But at the end of the day we've also made sure that we support our police officers and that we work diligently on improving beats and making sure we appropriate the right resources to the right spot Because it is a danger to the community when we have a proliferation of violence Luckily we've been able to curb some of it in some key places But we have to do it across the board And so we were facing a division in our city a certain few people in our city wanted to divide but luckily we held on kept them closed and also were diligently to earn their respect as this new administration came in Now we have everybody at the table and we are providing a good government for everyone and that includes public safety Marriage gets another issue facing Americans across the country and citizens cities across country and I'm sure Atlanta as well as inflation You came to office really wanted to bring everybody together from all socioeconomic realms How is that working for you What are you doing What can you do to help some of the less fortunate to deal with this really high inflation Inflation is one of those things that right now everyone is feeling it from your gas pump to your food costs to the rising costs of home ownership or rent So people are finding themselves having more month than money and that's a problem So we've been doing a lot of things to help with rent stabilization and just trying to help people get through the end of the month and get on to the next And so what we're trying to do is help people gain skills like technology skills or nursing apprenticeships to help them get more money through skills and new jobs But at the end of the day we really want to try to maintain this affordability across the nation that we had as a city But now that's kind of fleeting from us as we try to make sure that our housing costs doesn't get out of control Gentrification is real The cost of rent and Georgia has risen in metro Atlanta has risen by 65% in the last dozen or so years So what I've done is I made a huge goal of building or preserving 20,000 units of affordable housing We've already broke ground or cut ribbon on about 1500 of those units in the first 5 months So we're aggressive about all the goals I have trying to make sure people can age in place 'cause I've seen having a tough time hanging on on fixed income with all this inflationary cost that we're seeing Do you have any estimate of how long it will take before that your efforts and housing will bear fruit in the form of more affordable housing I mean part of your problem is I understand is you're just so popular Yeah I mean people are flocking to Atlanta I mean we have a thriving tech center Of course we have the great universities like my Alma mater Georgia Tech You have Georgia state you know morehouse spellman Clark Morris Brown So people love Atlanta our entertainment scene our music our culture our arts It's a great place to be and those people that have been here for 30 40 50 years labored here to build it to what it is today They should be able to enjoy it without all of this cost pressure So I'm sensitive to that as a native And so I do all I can each day to try to provide some safety nets for them but I tell you right now with all the inflation it makes it difficult And so we have to do all we can to preserve something for affordability in these cities And to give people upward mobility so they can earn more money to be able to live a better quality of life How divided is Atlanta politically Georgia seems to be pretty badly divided Where is Atlanta Yeah you know for the last 20 years or so Georgia was a red state if you will largely controlled by Republicans Republican governors for quite some time But we saw in the Biden election and Warnock also we saw the Georgia went blue So right now that the theory is that we're purple We're up for grabs We got to work hard if you want to win an election in Georgia A statewide election isn't given to you because you have a D or R massage your name Yes the state is divided at this time But I see it as more so that we are in it to make sure that we pick the right people to lead us into the future that we deserve Thanks to Atlanta mayor Andre Dickens Coming up prison Biden points.

Apparently, according there were there were two autopsy reports and one says he didn't and one says he did. I haven't heard of the two autopsy reports. I've only heard of one, right?

It'll be interesting to see what the jury Recommends. But I don't believe that Minneapolis Police Department would have something that is likely to kill somebody. Okay. Um, I'm not gonna say that It didn't kill them because I'm not going to say it didn't either. I don't know. I said, look, I I said, because I'm committed to telling you the truth. People were saying he can't breathe. I can't breathe. And, uh, that's that that is the charge against the policeman.

And I don't know if he was killed by the policeman that it was racist. These are two huge leaps that the country has taken, causing untold anger and damage. Okay? I absolutely believe that. I can agree with the fact that the media has definitely turned America into something that I don't think it's been in quite some time. I think it's Elevated.

That is how, uh, skeptical. I am that that is a direct killer of human beings. It's hard for me to believe that Minneapolis Police Department would have something routine. That has a likelihood of killing. Okay.

He we didn't like each other, but and he kind of compared me too much to my older brother, who was excellent. So this teacher and brother Joseph Hogan in the Christian Brothers Look uninterested everyone. Everyone was treated the same.

You do realize their millions of Americans that are not aghast about what happened yesterday, Bob, but they aren't. Then they are aligned with criminals. I do not object to the protesters.

"And then the next legislation should be the voting Rights Act to make sure that if the corporate Democrats do not help the people to make sure that we're the voting Rights Act, we Make sure that we protect the right to vote. Wherever constituent. I'll take my coming up here. Francisco. Thanks for that, and the $2000 checks the Voting Rights Act. Could you talk about the significance of that The John Lewis Voting Rights Act in terms of Especially someone who's really looked at voting over the course of your career. So, you know, I'm sitting here in Atlanta, Georgia. Right now in John Lewis's district, which is my home district is former District obviously and I'm thinking about the struggles. I'm thinking about the work that's been done The blood that has been shed for the right to vote. And I'm also thinking about the fact that Georgia I think is a tremendous kind of example of what happens. What could happen, at least when formally disempowered disenfranchised groups. Come together and turn out to vote. And I think that both Democrats and Republicans working, you know what could happen and that is the Democrats convene elections. In my own research. I found tremendous evidence that if voter turnout was higher, in fact of everyone turned out to vote, Democrats would do very well in states like Georgia and other states of the Sunbelt, Texas included And I think that for Democrats now it's incumbent upon them to understand that they need to make the case to the American people. That their right to vote is indeed a right that no one should be denied the opportunity to vote in the matter. Perhaps that they choose as well, despite what states might want despite what anyone either political party my want We need to expand voting rights now on the $2000 checks. I think that's also a very important piece of legislation that I know Senator Schumer has already mentioned will be top of the agenda and against speaks to the importance of Listening to the needs of underrepresented in disenfranchised communities, including the ones hardest hit by the pandemic. You mentioned Texas I'm wondering what you feel like are the states that could really use what's happening in Georgia as a blueprint. Well. Texas is such a fascinating example similar to Georgia. I think that the narrative we could, you know, use for Texas is that it's a state that has already blue or, at very least purple. It's just that it's suppressed. The point of being a solidly red state, and we saw some gains for Democrats, at least in terms of the presidential election tally in this past November, But you know it's still pretty far from being a kind of purple and certainly solve a blue state. Again, despite the growing minority populations there and again, That's because white voters is so disproportionately Republican in factor increasing the Republican in their vote preference. So if everyone voted in Texas be very clear that that would be a democratic or at very least a purple state, and the point there is that Texas has some of the most restrictive voting laws. In the country. And so any effort that is made to kind of make it easy for people to vote will lead to outcomes in Texas that better represent what Texans want. Not better represented people in Washington want or in other states want but again what Texans already want from the government. Can I ask you for your assessment of how the vote went in Georgia this time around Just before you came on. I was talking with W. Abe's Emma hurt about the impact of the president about the impact of saying that the vote was rigged. In Georgia, for example, the impact of him not Conceding, and that sort of denying potentially Senator produce Senator loft or an opportunity to say Basically, we do need to contain a Democratic administration and in a democratic majority in the House just wanted to get your assessment as a political scientist on that, as well and whether you know voters were affected by that. Well, you know, obviously, the election is the result of ah kind of agglomeration of many, many different factors. I can't really know what the world would be like if we didn't have The president's kind of rhetoric objecting to the election results, criticizing Republican officials that he supported as recently as 2018 and their election bids. But what we do know for sure is that despite high Republican turnout in the state, in fact Republican turnout that likely hit the targets Republicans thought they needed Extremely high. African American turnout on Election Day made the difference. So you know we could imagine Republican turnout would have been even higher than anyone expected. If you didn't have this kind of Albatross of the you know, disputed election result hanging around the necks of David Perdue and Kelly Leffler. But again, I think the story in Georgia is really one about very high black turnout both in early voting and on Election Day. And ginger rights. I moved from Oakland to Atlanta in the spring of 20 twenties, specifically Fulton County. This was a move back to Georgia for my husband. I know this is hard for the president to believe. I'm so very elated this afternoon. I'm sure the city will be in celebration today as it was after Biden was declared the winner. Georgia had the guts to do what Kentucky and South Carolina couldn't in terms of George's population Growing and ginger, for example, moving in the spring of 2020. What are the projections there? So it's very interesting and welcome to Atlanta. The I think story about demographic change in Georgia has two parts. One is the growing Latino and Asian American populations in the state, you know, driven by immigration, in part, but also by native born, You know, the native born population, you know, Children turning 18. But when we talk about demographic change, we also have to discuss people moving into the state from outside, especially the growth of the African American population. Driven by people moving, you know, maybe Historically, they have ancestors who came from the south, but people moving to Atlanta into the metro area for economic, cultural and social opportunities that exist here. Think we just heard one example of that, perhaps from a collar, But you know to me, I think that when we think about the future of Georgia, it's about those transplants. But it's really about Georgia and the economic growth and development which benefits everyone. Listen theory in Georgia, you know, driving more and more people to come to Atlanta come to the Metro. Also other parts of the state. For those opportunities. And while that migration might be disproportionately minority again, you know it's really everyone coming to Georgia and seeing new opportunities here. And again.

"And we were talking about the last caller was talking about the media and how stuff happens. Here's one example. That happened just yesterday. So you had Josh Holly, who's Republican congressman. I'm sorry. He's a Republican senator. And he says that he will. And you need one senator to challenge the these electors when this process takes place on January, 6th And he said he is intends to challenge these election results. So of course, the Biden team has to respond to that. And Jennifer Psaki is going to be the incoming White House press secretary. This is what she told reporters yesterday. She told reporters. This that this is merely a formality. And it certainly should be treated as such by people who are covering it, and regardless of whatever antics anyone is up to. On January, 6th president elect Biden will be sworn in on the 20th. So here's the press secretary at the White House writing copy. For people in the media who were going to cover this. And pay attention after this happens. Because you may very well here in the reporting. That are going into it. If they cover this at all that they will talk about how this is merely a formality, and it certainly should. They won't say it should be treated to such. But this is her giving marching orders. The mainstream media. And, of course, the compliant media just takes us and then they act. We asked, And then there's no pushback on this at all. I have seen zero push back on this whatsoever. And that's what that's what the media does Not only do they cover for Joe Biden, but they cover for any Democrat. Including Raphael Warnock in in in Atlanta, Georgia. I should say we're knock is the guy who's running against Leffler for the Senate. Run off the video came out. You probably didn't see it. Because it's getting zero coverage about the domestic violence incident that happened outside his home. His wife claimed that he ran over her foot. Okay, so the police were called. The police showed up and they're talking to the body Cam video is what you see. And it's war, knocking and making his lame excuse for how he didn't run over his wife's foot And then later you see her speaking to police. Breaking up tears in her eyes talking about how all this guy's a great actor, This has been going on for a long time. I worked at City Hall he's running for the Senate. And and she's essentially telling this police officer how she has been subject to abuse by this guy for some time now. And it gets zero coverage at all. Had this been a Republican. Any Republican. Then we would be seeing examinations off the kind of things that women go through when they're talking about abuse and how hard it is for them to come out in the open up about it and all sorts of we'd see all kinds of body language examinations and all the rest of it. But of course, the media on interested in covering that so you talk about, you know, lying by omission. And that is exactly what the media is doing. Jim 700 wlw. How you doing? Good.
