Why Michigan is the next big Bernie Sanders-Joe Biden battleground

"That is that it's not over yet but it's not looking good for Bernie Sanders and his socialist revolution let's just put it that way it's out he's got it he needs a miracle to come back in and win this thing in the end it or don't have a shot at it he needs to do really well and a lot of these upcoming states he doesn't have my chart margin for error and the reason for that is is that what happened in the a few days after South Carolina was the Democrat establishment coalesced behind Joe Biden really quick and it's pretty clear deals Joe Biden's wouldn't on super Tuesday the DNC machine gave it to on they took it for granted I'm they gave it to him so there's a few things that happen in the lead up to super Tuesday that are really important Terry McAuliffe the former governor of Virginia former DNC chair endorse Joe Biden that means the whole Virginia machine got behind that's why does Clinton though he was outspent by eighteen million dollars by Mike Rosenberg so Clinton's hatchet man Hillary Clinton hatchet man have a cold AF send the message and and then in that in the state of Virginia McCall's machine went to work but I didn't did but barely any campaign events are spent barely any right in Virginia so it's like how the hell did he win that big sorry I didn't mean to say that that that bad everywhere here but how the heck did you win that big of a race on hi I'm fine in in Virginia to the point where Bloomberg didn't even get any delegates after spending eighteen million dollars there Bernie did get a handful of patents out of Virginia but that it wasn't just for Genya Beto Rourke came in from in Texas the genesis machine came in Amy Klobuchar who dropped out at the urging of the party al there's the behind the scenes people the Obamas and so on and so forth I I came in for I'm in Minnesota in Massachusetts Elizabeth Warren the supposedly leftist progressives socialists who really it doesn't actually believe in what she puts forward is more loyal to the party establishment that she is and to the ideas she supposedly espouses and she just dropped out today but she stands in Massachusetts that blocked burning in Massachusetts and in Maine Rodney near nearby neighboring Maine and so on biting winds all these states that he probably should know one and Bloomberg really under performed across Italy he's got already and now warrants out of the race and it's really a two person race and so again Bernie's gonna need a huge night in Michigan he needs to not just win message when Michigan who needs to win decisively he he are coming on Tuesday other states I the upcoming that burning is to do really well in other rust belt states like Maine upper Midwest states like Wisconsin or Pennsylvania Arnaud heiau Bernie Bernie has a swing pass show but it's not looking good form and it's pretty clear they came for Bernie on Tuesday night and they seem to have delivered pretty close to a knock out

The Demographic Gaps Between Biden and Sanders

"Talked about the racial gaps earlier between Black voters and Latino voters voters favoring Biden Latino voters favoring sanders generally. There's some interesting gender gaps that we're seeing women favoring Biden Sanders and I think that this young olds gap is a perpetual one in the Democratic primary. I mean Bernie Sanders Much much better with Young voters and I was just as we're sitting here. I'm reading. Some I love it when people transcribe cable. Pundits are saying it's good news for us and apparently David Plus who is Who Was Obama's strategist said? We'll Biden's going to really need to you know. Get a lot of young volunteers in that will be a project for them because it is not I mean he and I think you know talking to their campaign like this in this fall particularly when I was reporting a story and Biden. They were somewhat. You know people that I talked to the campaign chairman. When I talked to him he he was kind of like well. Young voters kind of don't understand that they're relax struggles that happened before and we kinda the pathway for them. There's a certain attitude shift that I think perhaps has to happen within the Biden campaign. Or or you know. Campaigns have tears right. You know what I think that's going to involve a lot of surrogates. I would agree with that. I think this is We're kind of looking at the okay. Boomer election here yeah. I mean we saw in Texas in Dallas last night beto come out on stage and give the final speech of the night. After Biden spoke Beto gave the last speech and was speaking in Spanish and getting much louder applause than Biden had gotten during his speech so I think he is going to rely on characters like that to try to boost youth enthusiasm. We'll see if it works. I think that's right. Claire Stole my answer. Basically to to what I'm looking for age race and gender and ideology are like very clear dividing lines in this race and I would be super curious and I hope we can look into like our voters in the Democratic primary like you know how in Congress ideologically Republicans and Democrats are now more distinct from each other than they have ever been. There used to be a lot of overlap. I wonder if along does demographic fault lines in the Democratic primary. We've seen like a separation between those groups more than in past primaries. Obviously there was some pretty clear full lines in two thousand sixteen. The other thing I just will we will be digging into is to delegate picture this is a race ultimately going to be about delegates some some fairly minor differences and where candidates finished wear could make a big difference in how many delegates they get And so I think that'll that'll be the thing. We'll be digging into over the next couple of days. Hopefully also by the way we'll turn the model back on hopefully sometime midday afternoon tomorrow or something like that and Just as a final update before we leave Mike. It looks like things are trending in the direction that you forecasted right now. According to The New York Times needle there is a seventy one percent chance. That Biden Wins Texas. And they're forecasting just two point margin. There Biden also still looking like he's going to pick up main and of course. Sandra is still doing very well up. Ten points in California. The the the The New York Times does something. I'd love which is a chain translator probabilities into into just a phrase so according to the New York Times as a twelve thirty five. Am on Wednesday. March Fourth Bernie. Sanders is quote. Pretty likely to win. California Biden is quite likely to win Maine and Texas is quote leaning Biden. I usually am not able to distinguish what exactly those three different. You need both you need. I'm saying that they give the end. Ender sort of like a phrase to help people place it. It's almost. It's almost like when I characterized erases at the top of the show. I was looking at the needle. And that's where I was basing this

Beto arcus was there and has this report about two hundred. People showed up at the opening of the Grammy Museum's Latin Music Gallery. There was a lot to celebrate when the Grammy Museum opened in. Two Thousand and eight Latin music was is barely noticeable. We try to convince the people of the museum that it was worth it to have space for Latinos and they gave us fifteen square meters. which accounts for one hundred and fifty square feet? Maurice Gabriela Varroa is president of the Latin Recording Academy an offshoot of the Grammy Organization but also says when they began pitching the idea of Latin music space at the museum they had to focus on two things. First Education we are. We are tangled. We are SAMBA. We are personal. We are Ranchera so they said well. It's very easy for you to say but we don't know how to do Louis. Hope I retained on behalf of the Latin Recording Academy experts in every field and they came and they put their best. So when you go there you have all genders there about. Oh assess for nine years. They kept complaining about the one hundred and fifty square feet. They had been allocated until one day he asked I. What else can we do? They said we'll we need contributions so he says Oh. Let's contribute so. We begin being much more cooperative with the museum. undecisive guys. Why don't we do something nicer for you? Assess for the past year and a half. Latin Recording Academy has been helping the Grammy Museum create the Latin Music the gallery they went from one hundred fifty two six thousand square feet so the difference is huge humongous. It is also true that the presence presence of Latin music in America has grown is being more noticed but they also found that most of the apple these to the museum are Latin. Descent are Hispanics who come to the museum. So if the Magic Work Iwo Lavonia they live. Well I think that music brings us all together and now with our renovations were able to tell a lot more stories and a lot. Bigger stories about are about the impact of music. So it's very important.

Biden leads Trump in key battleground states but Warren does not, poll finds

"So got a couple the polls to get into I know there are two key polls that have come out today they both conflict one another Robin Oh says that he has a very simple answer surfer that but let's let's bring up I the New York Times Sienna College poll that was released just this morning it does appear that Democrats Kratz may be in trouble in some key battleground states it has how trump fares among likely voters so in Michigan trump is up for for Warren and now with Sanders Sanders is up three Biden is up one in Pennsylvania trump is up against sanders and Warren by one one and two respectively Wisconsin Biden's leading and a lot of these accept North Carolina trump is up in against Biden Sanders Anders and Warren and Let's see Florida Biden is up to SANDERS IS DOWN TO ELIZABETH WARREN is down four against trump clifford your thoughts on us you know looking at this poll with fascinated me was you have a situation where last cycle twenty only sixteen I mean you're talking about a billion dollar spent against the president and that's that's a generous range as high as two billion when you talk about negative campaigning but it all three of these individuals short biden vice president but you look at Bernie in you Look Elizabeth Warren I mean for the most part they really have not been tested yet when it comes comes to hard dollars being spent to paint them a certain way regardless of ideology money being spent to paint you as hey you should not like this person if either of those or any of the three camps very worried right now that the president is polling so well against them when no money has been spent the paint them in a negative light that's a really great point rob you agree I absolutely agree with that and the other thing is this again is a battleground poll and the other we're going to talk about is a national poll and when you look at the state by state poll what this shows is basically there's been no movement of trump verse generic them and these aren't even generic these are three doc well-known dem's there's been no movement between twenty sixteen and today if you look at the internals of the poll which which I saw nate Cohn who is the the polling analyst analyst for the New York Times was talking about if you look at White College educated people and you look across the line it's almost exactly the same if you look at white no colleges it's almost all the all the internals of the poll all the cross tabs are almost exactly the same as they were at the end of the two thousand sixteen election and the big mistake that the media Nia made in two thousand sixteen was focused on the national polling in not the steep steep battleground polls those state by state battleground polls showed movement towards trump MHM now I will say among likely voters this same poll the New York Times Sienna College poll among likely voters data is slightly more favourable for trump it shows him leading warren by three points up one point against sanders and then down one point versus Biden in the same states I'm not sure I don't have on here what the margin of error as well one one comment I'd I'd make is you know you look at these different candidates and you look at what they're trying to do what is their message you know we talk about since two thousand sixteen if impeachment is investment the message and I don't want to jump to it to our next topic but if if impeachments the message which we've seen like when you think Joe Biden what what is his campaign message right if you're a average let's say swing state voter and you think Joe Biden you're not sitting there thinking oh yeah his messages jobs or his message is XYZ wires e his message is the same as Bernie's which is the same as Elizabeth warrants which is we've got impeach the president and I think Democrats are missing the boat on this now it looks to the to the walks into the talking heads in the mainstream media you know they're in the loop and they're in the weeds and sure Elizabeth Warren has got a million different proposals but to everyday voters they're not getting that message and I think that people underestimate the value of running and trying to inspire voters I mean you look at what Obama did back and waiting twelve you look at what what trump did you're not seeing any type of national message from any of the leading contenders Running for the Democrat nomination you wonder if it might be that they are worried about spreading their message because they're the message that they would spread if they were to say hey this is my proposal is just everyone gets free stuff in your taxes because they're going to go up a ton you know what I mean it's like how does that I feel like they might be an a quandary because how does that sell to the American people you know when they've already got a great economy Armie we've got low UNEMPL- record unemployment numbers for minorities especially we've got things so going so well right now it's hard hard to run on these platforms that they are advocating for and where's the wedge issue right if you're a Democrat strategist right let's take off our belief in the constitution for a minute Democrat strategist what do you what do you tell these candidate because you're right record low unemployment record low for black America Asian Americans I mean the economy is roaring now I'd like us to cut cut some spending and I've got my critiques but if you're running a national campaign right now against President trump against the status quo in America it is difficult to find that that wedge issue and I think they have latched onto impeachment because they don't have another issue you know what what is it that they can dive in I mean even some of the major issues the left has tried to only criminal justice reform president trump has swiped from passing the first step day so I think if I'm a Democrat right now I understand why they're doing it but they've gotta to dig a little deeper to find a wedge issue that Americans actually care about and to your point In the article in The New York Times they interviewed some of the people that did the poll and there was a Young Woman that was basically Warren is crazy lately that was what she said like these policies to your point if they ran on on these policies they would be down even further into your point the two thousand eight in two thousand sixteen elections basically the same they were outsiders who said they were going to go in bring down the status quo trump is kind of done it and now they want to impeach him for it Obama didn't do it he got all in with the with the deep state with with the administrative state because that's really was he lied about who he was to get elected that he would go and change it but he did it and you know to your point on impeachment I don't I think it's GonNa work I mean look look at the nationals that they're talking about with impeachment right they're talking about forty nine percent want to impeach at fifty one or less than that don't want to impeach again these are adults nut registered voters not people that are actually going to decide the election Nancy Pelosi this weekend went on record saying that she doesn't you know what the Democratic candidates are doing it's because she knew that polling like this exists if the election were held today Donald Trump would get another four years in people's heads would explode let let me give you one quick note I was in an Uber in Florida northern Florida Florida matters especially coming in the twenty twenty I had a forty year old female independent Uber driver ever tell me and I asked her just totally I said you know what are your thoughts currently she asked what I do and she said you know I'll tell you this she says I'm not a huge trump fan but what they're are doing with this impeachment I'm going to have to support them because nobody should have to go through that process and it's just this this unfair bashing when he's trying to do good things and I mean coming independent in Florida I should tell you something that's incredible well the conflicting poll that we referenced earlier was of course it was a national poll as rob pointed out it was a Fox News poll of all things released yesterday that had his approval rating trump's approval rating at forty two percent with fifty seven percent of registered boaters disapproving of his job performance and somehow they threw Hillary Clinton's name in there which I mean Fox come on what are you doing to us that's right now why are you trying to convince her to run okay I get it ratings all right I got it but let's see trump is behind all of the top Tier Democrats in this this poll he is behind Joe Biden Fifty one to thirty nine he's behind Warren Forty six to forty one he's behind sanders forty nine to forty one and Nan Hillary Clinton forty three to forty one why did they what did they throw her name in their cliff just for fun since the torture US I think you'd be surprised that Hillary Clinton the Clinton family I mean walking away from power I'm not going to sit here and say I do expect her to get in but it wouldn't surprise me so I think you know Fox's probably right to ask the question but just go back to to the you know talking about national poll versus stay baseball's none of these folks have had the type of money spent against them them and I'm telling you that they can look at the polling early on they made this mistake in two thousand sixteen wants the money is spent once voters are actually paying attention or force the pay attention because a billion dollars will be spent against whoever the Democrat nominee is to paint them and they're gonNA paint you know they're going to spend money to paint themselves but when that money is spent that to me is when you're actually going to see the movements of the American people want to support them say throw this poll out but I will tell you that Hillary Clinton was up by those numbers in two thousand sixteen and she won the popular vote and she did not win the election because we're republic with an Electoral College and you need to do the state by state polls I think Hillary if she I think Senate on Friday but if Hillary wants to get in she's got eleven days now to register one hundred dollars a registered in the Hampshire so hillary is going to get in I think we know by November for fifteen but to your point in just to hammer your point home you're talking about two billion dollars hasn't been spent in media in burned media loan trillions of dollars have been spent against Donald trump over the past three years it's been every day it's been groundhog day this is the day we're GONNA get Donald Trump and and then they don't get it so I mean don't from negatives are pretty much as low as you're going to get him there's nowhere else to go

"If you like the Young Turks podcast I think you'll love a lot of the podcasts on the it network old school drop. Elizabeth Warren is out with our Medicare for all plan and then people are reacting or Joe Biden reaction and so that has been the big big mystery for the mainstream media was bay where trump Rudy Giuliani fun for everybody okay so lots and lots of show for you ben is out it's done he's up of things and acting decisively in that spirit I am announcing that my service of the country will not I see something high I get onto something but anyway he's been in this like six million dollars in the first forty eight hours and then I read a stat was what was it like the Washington Post maybe they mean hours no no it's definitely possible yeah yeah clearly defined buckets Biden Clo- are more conserved Democrats they say me Sanders Elizabeth Warren very those are very clear ends of the spectrum right and now this end of the spectrum that could have gone either way in the beginning of the campaign right they got in the progressive that's a small when you compare the twenty seven people that were in this race at different times Beto I have in the camp of well intentioned none of the rest of the media will talk about now that was absolutely decisive so at the beginning Organiz the volunteers and staffers to go out on knock on doors make phone calls they broke so he had it and that's why he raised the six million right in the beginning people in the beginning he is running as seems like not really Medicare for all and I was like Oh no John with Ted Cruz came back and was like these for Medicare for all right then an-and it's like he seems like he's leaning away from progressives now and I think that that was a critical says better you've got this you're the next Bobby Kennedy we're going to win this is so exciting so so he's like Oh bummer staffers that was legendary left Zach mallets Becky Bonn and all the people that Work Aso's people who believe in those Obama staffers now how did that work out for you yeah I and rhetoric was not an Obama and the staffers were young services that this Obama world had explored and again we've seen like the connection in this moment that's one thing and to it's interesting to me when candidates can't he got really close I didn't understand why people saw him as a frontline right he didn't really have any solutions for us besides the fact that he double down on other Democrats would not but there wasn't something spectacularly special about I just told them for the day and so there was a lane that he could've used to win if he came both those candidates are in their seventies and could then he sticks with his organizing team and then he would was Obama staffers. Yeah you know the idea that Obama's more charismatic I I charisma those are the two leaders Senate they can never unprecedented I don't WanNa give like run Mehta's side on this okay you have to have it but I think it's definitely reading saying that necessarily gets you all the way but it certainly counts for something and the confession speech that better win in the Senate but I want him somewhere on my team so look I don I don't WanNa get and so all the people that are focusing all the wrong reasons if they keep missing lifetime the voters care about policy they deeply deeply oppose standard milk toasts moderate to conservative policies and people like especially early on as you pointed out he didn't have a really strong identity since they decided to come in and like the first national introduction that a lot of people had was this vanity thing why you should be president and you you seem so sure of yourself that's a weird combination remember six months ago I'm talking about guns it seems like he talked about it and it did well and so he'd double down and I'm not saying he's like trump but trump does this talks about everything he sees gets applause did right he he's pretty good on their environment he was very good in challenging Donald Trump's doubling down on guns yes John could be right that he saw moment there especially with what happened cost selections and how dare you and he's like that's like your opinion man but this stuff's getting people killed it's okay so you have to give him credit for that but more even more important that he took no corporate pack money so there were some loophole issues at center but guys he led on that when no one else the the light side right force of good we'll have to see what he does now yeah I'm really good policies but he got wooed and and Seduce case fatal mistake and that he could go back to being a progressive and so in and if given the right leadership and guidance I think he comes back and plays percents from Buddha J. Show like I'm authentic and I've got some good instincts in some bad instincts and the war and took the progressive thing that I was planning to do but oh well I guess that's relates the judge and so anyway of course he wasn't going to win this is the right decision right now they're running even though they know they're not going to be president okay why don't we move onto another and what exactly it will look like and that is because Medicare for all is a at least proposal about our plan it's not the actual legislation but she does have a post it's like twenty really how much medicare for all is it. Well she says under my plan Medicare for all we'll cover the version that that Bernie has put out then is substantive Medicare for all that actually it is before we get into the financing and everything it is substantive healthcare yes that she was going to listen to advisers Oh gotta get closer to the Democratic Party and everything's she was at had at least some voices counseling her in that direction she didn't are we get all the benefits that John talked about and we would save money now Oh you know John mentioned some downsides I'm not even sure I see the downsides and this was so smart because now in the debates she can do and I agree this is Medicare for all but and say read the plan I put it out there and if you didn't do your job journalists to read he starts with is such a great story about her father and his heart attack and how that interrogate what is happening in this industry and how can we radically change it and you know the reason see for middle class folks she's closely with the Roosevelt Institute which is a think tank expect how detailed and how she was going to answer her critics in a powerful okay yeah and so I'm going to jump into how she's going to pay for I will say so who it is that is pushing for is going to be really important perhaps the most important to some people and I have much more faith in Bernie Sanders to have the the organizing ability is to say well it's really easy to write anything in a proposal counter by saying I've looked at a lot of the people in the democratic it'd be paid for the first option is the current system which costs like fifty two trillion dollars over apps for a number of reasons we'll get into she goes on to say the eleven trillion dollars in household insurance and out operations and the richest one percent of Americans and by cracking down on tax evasion and fraud not one appar get ready to ask that question million times but anyway so what does that actually mean she made references billion dollars then she adds stem risk fee on financial institutions with more than fifty billion ex- on foreign earnings her wealth tax now changes as a part all income and doing so on an annual basis rather than just when a sale is made to raise two a trillion dollars there's a little bit more which we'll get into but what I like about the financing is goals to finance that like.

Elizabeth Warren faces attacks in Democratic debate

"Last night there were about forty seven no I think it was down to a dozen we've we've whittled down the debate field now that we have last of the fourth democratic presidential debate and one of the interesting things for those of you who didn't watch it in the first couple everybody went after Joe Biden it seemed this time the candidates were all going after Elizabeth Warren which might suggest that some of the momentum has shifted just a bit let's see Elizabeth Warren does she had to defend a lot I think she held around honestly I think that the judge did a pretty good job I think told C. Gabbard is still an interesting character I don't really know what to make of her better Rourke I thought did a better job than he's done in past debates but I think it might be time for him to consider some some other avenues overall though I am not sure people are still engaged because we had said earlier as the first couple debates unfurled we said more people start paying attention as it gets closer towards the end of the year but actually the number of people watching dropped from about twenty seven million to fourteen million overall who did you think did well and who did you think needed some help Charlie who do you think won't be back on the stage for the next time they don't you're probably right about Beto and town Stiers as name I don't think running a lot of ads on morning TV yeah well he's he's a billionaire as they point out he was the only billion are up there and they they went after billionaires last night they did go after Elizabeth Warren now Cory Booker said that the you know Hey we all got to unify we can't getting up you know what he was wrong I mean they're all issue oriented they weren't delivering ad hominem attacks to Elizabeth Warren I mean compared to Republican debates the likes of which we saw in two thousand sixteen this was mild in comparison and I thought they brought up a good point you know she's a good talk about expanding Medicare okay and Medicare for all health insurance but she refused to answer if she would increase taxes on the middle class and you know three times she said will cost will not go up so I I think she's saying your taxes will go up but you'll still save money because your deductibles or co pays your premiums will be lower but you know that's what one thing a lot of people don't like about Washington where you can't answer the question directly do you want a tax increase and I think that that's going to come back to bite or at some point yeah I think what hurts the Democrats is not necessarily the number of candidates but just the candidates themselves if I'm if I'm Donald Trump yeah stop talking about Syria or Turkey I would just do one tweet and that is watch the democratic debates because my take away was how incredibly far left the democratic candidates are I mean you have told C. Gabbard considered a moderate because she had to go out of her way to say abortions should be safe legal and rare because the idea here is the democratic candidates one unrestricted abortions for any reason at and then there was the issue of churches and schools not losing there are skinny losing their tax exemption status is non profit if they don't accept same sex marriage now listen what you're telling churches then is that you cannot believe in marriage as outlined in the Bible that is the foundation of your faith and then of course there's the guns issue I mean if they made it very clear they want to the ultimate goal is to take away all guns and so if you are watching these democratic debates these are hands down the most far left proposals we've ever seen from the entire litany of debates again remember that tells the galleries a moderate because she thinks abortion should be safe legal and rare up to twenty weeks only seven countries in the world allow abortions after twenty weeks and then also the three countries that have more risk excuse me all the more liberal abortion laws in the US North Korea China Vietnam three communist countries in the U. S. that's what we have in common well I thought I thought Tulsi Gabbard was interesting she I think is the only one who wants a U. S. forces out of Syria I think and she seems to indicate she doesn't want United States engaging in regime change I kind of agree with that overall and I think actually mostly Democrats would too but it you know it flies in the face of Donald Trump to some extent although Elizabeth Warren said she didn't want troops out of the Middle East in general okay yeah you know in that's one thing it's it's difficult when you have twelve people up there I think you alluded this earlier you know you have let's say three hours among twelve people it's kind of difficult to figure out

Where In The World Can You Get The Best Pizza?

"Won the voice of the city wherein at number nine's roosevelt street just a block from the banana beach one finds beto pizza which was recently recently determined by the generally considered authoritative for such matters big seven travel website to be the seventh best slice of pizza in the world according to big seven's sevens report quote there is one thing that the vast majority of the world agrees upon that without a doubt pizza is one of the world's tastiest dishes but where exactly will you find the world's best pizza end quote at the top of the list at number one one finds l'industrie pizzeria in williamsburg brooklyn judge to be the world's best because of quote it's combination of a perfect base and super imaginative toppings and quote number two is faremo pizza on via francesco saliha in naples italy which is quote perfectly fluffy with toppings that are simply outstanding and quote the scientists have big seven organization noted that the greatest virtue of a slice of bezos peter is the superior mouth feel and the fact that these slices there are quote unquote melt in the mouth good now it will be easy i think to overlook the magnitude of the accomplishment of those visa being seventh best in the world will surely strike anyone is a fine achievement still we all live in a world in which only gold silver and bronze stand on the podium and indeed only gold has the stirring employer of hearing it's anthem so one might be forgiven for regarding as an also ran an establishment that concocted the seventh best slice of pizza in the world and each morning created to the fresh however as professor alexander lee of the center for the study of the renaissance at the university of warwick and that is center spelled c. e. n. t. r. e. to you immediately sense it's gravitas wrote finally in a brilliant essays entitled simply a history of pizza that quote pizza is the world's favorite fast food food and quote as lee explains pizza has been enjoyed since antiquity in one form or another and the word pizza appears in a tenth century latin manuscript composed in eta in lazio italy but since the late eighteenth century when modern pizza was i baked in naples the popularity of the dish has increased geometrically the nine ninety seven seven manuscript records that the tenant of a local property pledged to transfer to the bishop of eta do a decent pizzas or twelve pizzas peter's on every christmas day and another twelve every easter sunday but i digress to understand the ubiquity of pizza and the vast -ness of its popularity one naturally turns two PM q. or pizza magazine quarterly the industry's most trusted source which is famous for its annual pizza power report or PBR quote a a state of the industry analysis and quote wherein one finds that fully one hundred and thirty four billion dollars a year are spent pizza and that the united states alone is home to seventy seventy five thousand two hundred forty three pizzerias extrapolating from the fact that sales in the US account for just under twenty seven percent of worldwide sales one may estimate that there are over two hundred and eighty thousand pizza restaurants on the planet in this light the fact that bezos pizza is the seventh best pizza in the world is revealed to be a truly remarkable chiffon putting it in the top zero point zero zero zero zero to five percent of all pizzerias then factor in that jews comprise less in two tenths of one percent of the world's population and you begin to see the true extent of the accomplishment finally as william slot of the to our organization and a student suit student of the crust and sauce has said quote there is no such thing as bad pizza only varying levels of deliciousness end quote raising the bar tremendously high hi among the two hundred eighty thousand unique instance of pizza and so long as we're taking a moment to appreciate the vast -ness of not just jewish but human accomplishment i have to express my admiration for the allergist at the big seven research organization the logistics of collecting samples from well over a quarter of a million restaurants around the globe and then exposing each to rigorous testing and compiling the vast amounts of data collected is itself an achievement that dwarfs the greatest accomplishments of earlier your generations like building the pyramids or landing humans on the moon the printing press or printing those pale little white m.'s on those fragile candy shells every eminem i'm an including every orange one and arguably nothing captures the spirit of this city we love so well tel aviv better than the fact that a mere one hundred ten years after it rose from the sands bands as modern histories first jewish city tel aviv is the home to one of the best exemplars in the world of an ancient dish that like the jewish people itself has against all odds survived and sometimes hostile world and in the fullness of time thrive to a degree that ancient romans medieval catholic bishops and the savant of enlightenment naples would never have thought possible today we

He's a presidential candidate. In two thousand eighteen though he ran for senate and in an effort to unseat ted cruz he ended politics becoming a celebrity and raising thirty eight million dollars in a single quarter. His presidential campaign hasn't gone as well. The problem hasn't been that he didn't have the big breakout a moment the second debate which fans were hoping for though he did not the problem was that he still having convinced nearly anyone that there was a clear reason he was running at all aerobic as a candidate is always about listening. He wants to meet everyone in here or they think more than give big campaign speeches but voters want to hear from candidates lates what's driving them to run and a rourke didn't seem to have that clear rationale energizing him that changed on august third.

They go somewhere physically isolated and different they can without distraction. I think deeply quieting the distractions on the latest of our youtube lantos series on hidden brain from n._p._r. And we're back. I think this is where we're transitioning now right. We're gonna we're gonna transition to the personal side of this conversation cool. So what does the time from your childhood that affects the way that you see government. Oh you know i just hard to pick a a a moment. I'll try so my dad <hes> who served in local government as a county commissioner and in a county judge and who just had a hell of a lot of fun in in doing it took me and my sisters to the backyard dockyard fundraisers or the election night parties or licking envelopes or carrying signs around two by fours outside of the polling place <hes> <hes> you know he he taught me <hes> the joy <hes> and the power of being with people and serving people and connecting with people but he was also somebody who loved being outdoors and loved <hes> taking us out into the mountains on backpack trips and i remember this one moment really sticks with me and it really informs how i think about climate and the environment and our responsibility to one another and the next generation we were in three rivers. I up above alamogordo new mexico in the lincoln national forest and we were crossing one of these rivers in our member stopping midway through the river. I was six or seven years old taking our tin cup's off of our backpacks and dipping them into the river and drinking the water and i don't know why but that image inch came to mind when you ask the question it's just for me so resonant <hes> that speaks to both what we have right now that is so remarkable in beautiful ability ability to go do that and what we could possibly lose if we do not confront the challenges before us in environmentally or through climate change or just our ability ability to have those special shared moments with one another you mentioned your dad and your dad you you described as this is kind of a larger than life really gregarious figure but also someone who you said could be really critical all your i am curious because he was such a fixture in local out paso politics chicks that after he died when you ran for the city council there what it felt like to follow in his footsteps yeah so i was a painfully shy kid and then a painfully shy young man <hes> but as i got more engaged in in the community <hes> starting a business business starting a local online newspaper with good friends and then running for city council a few years after my dad died i discovered connected with that joy that i'd seen him feel and bring to others in in our community through his involvement in politics really got what it was all about going door to door. It was at that moment running for city council that are really felt like i was also connecting with my dad who at this point had been who had been dead for a few years and in what had made politics so special for him and maybe unanswered questions i had about why he pursued that and why he spent so much time so so many nights so many weekends out there campaigning and connecting with people is the right thing to do. He was called to it but there's also joy in that connection that you make with people. People necessarily felt that in that first city council race as a father yourself three kids. How do you talk to your kids about president donald trump and and the fact that he was elected in this country. It's a tough one and i remember the night that he was elected..

We were at a conference on justice issue el paso and he said seek at m._o. Odd god western community the others launderer necessite mazda persona gone respect eating that if you want to secure your communities if we want secure the border treat people with respect and dignity el paso texas is one of if not the safest cities in the united states. It's safe not despite light because we're city of immigrants because we're a minority majority community because we're connected to mexico and we see all of those as fundamental to our strength and our success success and our security so let's build on that as we rewrite this country's immigration laws no walls no cages for kids know militarization of the the border more than a million dreamers make them u._s. Citizens in this their true home country and homeland. We're very far from the u._s. Mexico border right now. We're in iowa immigration. Laws helping states like iowa that are far removed from the the border were removed. It's interesting last night. I was talking about l. Paso as a city of immigrants and i said well hell the moines is a city of immigrants. In this young woman came up to me afterwards and said thank you for saying that <hes> we we get so often stereotyped <hes> as a community that is monochromatic and is only defined defined by one experience or set of experiences in america. She says this is incredibly diverse. There are people from all over the world who have found a home here in des moines which which is of course the american story so this country of immigrants and asylum-seekers this country people who were brought here against their will this country of people people from the planet over who by their very presence have made us better. We lose sight of that at our own peril we build walls we militarize the border we reject doc those at their most desperate and vulnerable moment and then we reject the very notion and idea of america are exceptionalism our success and our ability to fulfil our promise that resonated so strongly last night in in des moines in heard that back from everyone who came up to shake my hand afterwards there's been a lot under pressure on you to end your bid for the presidency and instead run for the senate and you have made it very clear that you under no scenario want to run for the united states senate but there are currently over twenty democrats seeking the nomination for the president and some of them do have a lot more experience than you in government. Some of them are articulating really clear policy positions on things. Some of them are polling higher than you so talk to us about. What makes you think that you are the answer. I want to serve this country. The as president and i think i have a perspective that is important for this country. At this moment as donald trump vilifies in demonize is the border communities entities of immigrants seeks to make us afraid warns of invasions and infestations and calls those who come to this country killers and predators and animals. It is in a community community of immigrants on the u._s. Mexico porter that i was raised in that amien are raising ulysses and molly and henry. I think i can tell you very powerful. A very positive the story of the contribution that immigrants make to the success of this country yet in moss in texas going every one of those two hundred and fifty four counties on a very very progressive agenda we help to take a state that had ranked fiftieth in voter turnout written off his to read and republican to count to one that gave us more votes any democrat had ever received one independence for the first time in decades brought nearly half a million republicans along with us help to flip to congressional seats and elect seventeen african american women to judicial positions in harris county literally changing the face of criminal justice in this country most diverse city..

"Gimme a follow. There is at certified Todd Schnitt. So at certified Todd Schnitt is that finishing up with Beto master battle Rourke, and again, the media cover up here this I mean have conspiratorial actually it's this is worse than what Beto O'Rourke originally did. And I. I think this is a classic completely sane argument on the mainstream media in this country these days and some say, all it's you. It's conservative talk radio. It's it's the conservative the pundits. That are on the right? They love to make the mainstream or the media, the liberal, boogeyman, etc. But I mean, how the hell do you? Explain what I'm about to tell you that. I gotta start with what better award is now apologizing for, but as usual, it goes even deeper and it gets worse. So Beryl Rourke has apologized because he clearly had some pretty ominous and pretty morbid writings when he was a teenager. And then also a group that he was a part of a hacktivists group. So the details are very simple. It turns out that Beto O'Rourke had an interesting little past with what they call one of the first or oldest computer hacking groups. Here in the United States. And it's the cult. Of the dead cows. And then he had some kind of a screen name or a handle psychedelic warlord. And with this group he had some some nutty writings. Listen to this. This was written better will Rourke was fifteen years old. So he was part of this activist group. This cult of the dead cows. And then he had these writings under psychedelic warlord. So I'm not sure if if he actually posted these creepy stories when he was part of the hacking group, or or whether that the dead cat occulted the dead cows was was separate in some instances from the psychedelic warlord handle either way. The finale to the story is far worse. And I'll explain that in just a second. So when Rourke was fifteen. He wrote this piece of fiction again, I I don't know whether this was part of the hacktivists group, or whatever I it's. To me. It doesn't matter. But what better O'Rourke wrote when he was fifteen was this one day as I was driving home from work. I noticed two children crossing the street. They were happy happy to be free from their troubles. This happiness was mind by right? I had earned it in my dreams as I neared the young ones, I put all my weight on my right foot, keeping the accelerator pedal on the floor until I heard the crashing of the two children on the hood. And then the sharp cry of pain from one of the two I was fascinated for a moment. That when after I stepped or stopped my vehicle, I just sat in a daze sweet visions, filling my head. So fascinated for a moment that after he stopped the vehicle I sat there in a daze sweet visions, filling my head. I I mean, first of all this is pretty sick pretty morbid. So he's saying that he sought to innocent children to light fully happy. So what did he do better Rourke decided to jam his foot on the accelerator in this story?.

"By Beto, the Reuters reporter had the story he asked about it battle confirmed. It was true. This guy sat on the story all during the O'Rourke. Ted Cruz Senate campaign. It was embargoed. He said he was doing this. Because he was writing a book. This was not this reporting that uncovered that oh having fantasies about running over kids with his car. He didn't uncover that as part of his day job as a reporter of the news. He came across this as an author, and therefore he was within his rights to withhold the story until after the election for his book. And then he wrote the story came out last week. And I forget the guy's name Reuters. But he's come under a lot of vicious attacks by some he's getting praise. He's not the first guy to learn things in a campaign and bury them for a book later, particularly embarrassing things. But when I saw this folks, it's when I first began to think that the source for this has to be Democrats who do not want a white male as their nominee. Mean who in the world was Reuters, which is a left wing news organization. They had the story. They had the details on and by the way Beddoes fantasy about running over kids with his car is not the only thing embarrassing from those days. This. This was a it was a murder mystery. It was a murder fantasy piece. That bet over wrote. Where the narrator runs over children in the street with a car, and it was last Friday that Reuters published this piece revealing Beto was a member of the hacking group cult of the dead cow. So Beto has now apologized for this. And that's what he's doing this stuff that I did my past it. Nobody's going to hold it against me. This is the stuff. He's talking about. Nobody's going to hold it against me. It's not going to have an impact on my race in two thousand twenty. Nobody's going to care about it by then. And I think he's saying this largely because of the experience with President Trump lots of things like the access Hollywood video didn't damage Trump. So a lot of these presidential candidates are thinking that the old rules are dead and all this stuff in your past. As a candidate is not going to hurt you anymore. I think they're making a mistake because they still don't understand why Trump. Was not held to account on those things and let me just tell you Beto O'Rourke is not Donald Trump. There's a whole story here on how this Reuters reporter uncovered this story and sat on it. Once this clown's name, this Reuters Joseph men M E end. We've also learned that Beddoe has. Written poems. Betto is a is a poet. I can't read this poem to you. After take a brief tie can't read. Listen to rush Limbaugh's award winning radio show any time. Just download the rush twenty four seven.

"Mortgage fraud conspiracy, falsifying business records a scheme to defraud. The important thing about the New York state case is that the president cannot pardon people for state crimes. Well, and there's some concern that this would be violating double jeopardy and charging him for the same crime. So we'll see I something tells me that they wouldn't indict him if they didn't feel like they had a good basis for moving forward despite the double jeopardy concerns. So we'll see what happens with Paul Manafort. We. Big news on the twenty twenty race on the democratic side. The man who only goes by one name beta was running and it was quite the rollout. Let me say. So everybody's just been hanging around waiting and waiting and here comes Vanity Fair with Beto in kind of a casual ranch vibe right saying, I just was born for this. And then he did this weird video on this strange couch with like nineteen eighties pillows, I'm I'm really struck by the scene of this video. I don't understand it. And I know that this is not like intellectual commentary, but I'm just gonna say for a second all of the build up here. I thought his actual announcement was real bizarre. Yeah. If I got confirmed by text message to a local television station, and then we had this video in which he is very hyped up. And then you have the Vanity Fair piece. Which is also a little fluffy smooth. Yeah. It's like, it's very emotional. It's very it's not highly choreographed, and I get that's what people like about Bego. I think that's part of his appeal is people feel like they're getting the real deal. But I if I'm being very honest was a little put off by his tone, and by his by the sort of celebrity nature of the roll out by the lack of substance because mainly because like you said there's so much anticipation. It took so long and there's so much build up and instead of saying I thought carefully about this. Here's why I'm the right person in here is my plan. It was like, you know, Oprah begged into and he just thinks he's born to do it and his wife the one raising his kids. Anyway, I don't know. I just I was not feeling I'm going to be real honest. I think Iraq was a really good candidate to run for Senate in. Texas, and I don't quite understand why after losing to Ted Cruz, but making huge gains in Texas for the Democratic Party. He didn't say, hey that John Cornyn is up for re election. Maybe I'll run against him. I think he would have been a really good candidate to continue working for a Senate seat in Texas. And I just don't get the reason for being in on the presidential stage with him. I understand that people like him. I understand parts of why people like him. He is exceptionally good at talking about some really hard topics. Someone a message on Instagram saying, I think he does what y'all do. And I think that's awesome. Also, I don't think I need to run for president. And I love you. But I don't think you're there either. Right. Like, I think he could do so much good. If he weren't trying to ride his own star power. And instead just continuing to do the work in front of him. Yeah. It's just this. This whole narrative of death. Estany? And this is the moment. And I'm born to take advantage of it. I'm just look, I I'm really gun shy about that. I'm really not into that. I don't want that to be the argument for why this is a better choice than Donald Trump because for a large portion of America that means absolutely nothing to them. Do I think it's energizing to the democratic base?.

And now you bought this new plan to the Bario living in fear. Home. Lot of people who are working very hard. He says to frighten the people live. And you know, who that is. Yes. It's your father in law. No, okay. That's your opinion. She says it's your father loves doing this to us. So great that your opinion. Wait. It's my opinion that your father low reasons don't remember who your father in law come on. That's amazing come on. So she has done more homework than he n -ticipant. I wasn't expecting her to know that he's doing this work for his father in law. Yeah. And so he eventually Beto up stains from voting and then before he is back into a corner. Ultimately on this project. It just gets dropped. Why does the project get dropped? You may ask. Beddoes off the hook. It's because the citizens of Texas. In the meantime, had voted to ban in Texas, imminent, domain for private purposes. And that's the only reason this thing fell through. It's obviously what the resident there was worried about. She's worried about losing your home to imminent domain, and because he was going to come in and build this huge complex. And so that's her opinion. Of course, his father in law. I mean, there's no way to prove that it's your opinion. I mean, just because I am married to that man daughter doesn't necessarily mean. He's my father-in-law. No. That's your opinion. I mean, you gotta have a better answer ready to go the net Netto. Hypocrites. Yeah. Boy. Married in the some wealth. You know, he did you know, he did he's all set. That's why he doesn't care about the rest the rest of humanity taking advantage of capitalism. He's gonna slam the door shut in their faces. I mean, this guy won't even share. Part of his campaign funds with other Democrats unequivocally said, no he's not sharing that that's for. That's for him. That's for Texas. I'm doing that. I'm spending every penny on Spotify right now. So it's not a share. A guy who believes in wealth redistribution. Yeah. You'd expect more right? You'd expect to maybe share with some of his fellow Democrats. What you don't you don't care about regaining control of the house, for instance. And I think that that is I think the only daughter, but by the way, like I think she's an only child so those wife. Yeah. Bettas wife. So I think that the I mean, it's there's you know when so anyway, well, get use it. It's it's a legal to use that for who cares. Personal life stuff. A rich white guy bread. That mean, he's in the wrong party. I thought only rich white guys were Republicans. And I thought that the rich white guys only got their money from inheriting it. And in this case marrying into it in inheriting. So anyway, just Texas. Don't screw this up, by the way, look at this. While you were speaking there, I found a new poll just came out UT Tyler poll shows the lead is down to three point six for Ted Cruz police that so that's an average. This is the last this is the latest poll, Jodi. Oh, that's better than the average. Then if it's just one poll, I mean, it's been as low as one, and so if he's spending all of this money, and he's only course. Of course. I mean, there's still some time he could narrow the gap even more. But I I opened I've already early voted. So me too. I'm. I'm done. I couldn't push the button hard enough for Ted Cruz.

But man, I think this blitz is just having an effect. People are just like, I don't know. I just keep hearing about this Beto guy, maybe him to please don't please don't feel for this. Please by all that is. Holy. So anyway, Ted Cruz still leads Beto by five percentage points. According to a new poll from Quinnipiac poll was released yesterday with so it was just over a week before it was eight days before the election now at seven found that fifty one percent of likely voters favor. Crews forty six percent favor Betto. Just forty six. Three percent undecided. Fifty one forty six fifty one forty six to three nearly all polling of the competitive. Senate race here Texas has found crews leading I think every single one I've seen I've never seen him trailing. I've never he hasn't been behind or even tied. So. Look polls are polls. But at this is fifty one to forty six three are undecided. In theory, those committed to Ted, you know, the majority at least, you know, it's not like it's forty five forty four with right? Nine percent, or whatever. It is. Terrible. At math eleven percent undecided. So that's a good sign, especially when you factor in early voting is more than halfway done. So hopefully, a lot of these votes are already been cast for the race for governor. Greg Abbott is way ahead ninety one. It should be it isn't, but he's leading Lupe Valdez by twenty points, fifty eight thirty eight that's, you know, Ted should be up at least that Ted should be up by by fifty eight thirty two thirty was your prediction with sixty two thirty eight Ted. And then you changed it. I'm saying temple weeks ago. You said fifty five forty five you still stick at four. I'm particularly ten points. Yeah. At least in. Points. We'll see I mean, I could be completely wrong Beto could win this thing. And then I mean, what a disaster that would be the I don't want your eating your underwear. No, all my gosh.

"We haven't seen anything like this in years years. Oh, this is not even in the ballpark. I literally had meetings years ago where if I got twenty people in the room, I was like doing cartwheels and call them, you know, the paper and to fill this home with people is extraordinarily and and the and the diversity of this audience every race, every color, every creed, young old babies, you know, they were all here. I tell Mary, I'm sure she has Republican friends. She loves. She tells me she sleeps with a Republican. What is what is their imprint you sleep sleep with? What is what is that? That person think about bet though? Well, we, he actually likes Beto actually likes bento. He doesn't have a real. He had a dog in this fight yesterday care for Ted Cruz either as my husband and I say, I sleep on the left side of the bed, and he sleeps on the right side of the bed, but he didn't votes person over party so I can. I can lure him over on. Here's the problem for Beto in every election for generation. Texas has looked a lot more like CJ. Then it's looked like Mary or even Mary's Beto curious, Republican husband. And when you talk to the people who study Texas politics, they think that's going to be very hard to change. Well, I mean, I think if you go back to March twenty seventeen before. Betto became Beto you know, you saw somebody looking at a at a pretty pretty big hole. That's Jim Henson. He's the director of the Texas politics project at UT when he looks at Texas. Even this year, he sees huge advantages for the Republicans at the time that Betto declares, you're going into an election in which any statewide democrat, probably starting at, you know, reasonable people can disagree call fifteen point deficit previous candidate that had you know, lots of high hopes pinned on her, Wendy Davis went through a fall election with national attention and talk of turning Texas purple, if not blue and lost a Greg Abbott by twenty points. Jim ticks off what has happened to the Democrats after two decades completely out of power there fundraising's week, their bench of candidates is shallow. They don't have the think tanks or policy institutes or reclusive billionaires. Ready to create super PACS to force their pet issues in anointed candidates on the public. There are in fact as many Texans who identify as Democrats as Republicans. But when it comes to actually showing up on election day, the numbers aren't even close and somebody that is running as of March, seventeen, and in probably going forward. But looking at the situation on the ground, then pretty bereft of organizational support. What I'd also say is, you know, it's important to note that at that point, how much of an outlier Aurore was that's Josh blank. He's the director of polling and research at the Texas politics project. He works with Jim. I mean, there were no other Democrats chomping at the bit to run statewide despite the fact there's a Republican in the White House. Generally speaking, you expect to see more out party candidates running, especially in that first midterm election, you know, whereas a rook was clearly, you know, enthusiastically running for the Senate seat, no clear candidate for governor no candidate for. Attorney general no candidate for Lieutenant governor and really thin pickings in terms of figuring out who those people were going to be. I think that's actually probably more accurate picture of what it looked like for Democrats at that time, the racist tightened considerably since then. So where did you Josh stand now? Well, last week they published an article with the headline. Beto Aurora won't be Ted Cruz in Texas. Here's why auroras chances have moved up appreciably if not hugely beyond non zero probability of winning..
