In a moment, we'll share some of what he said. But look what's happening in our major cities. Portland continues its already gone, folks the feds around, they blame the feds. Friends have pulled out. It's still a mass of bedlam. Violence continues in Portland, Seattle's about devolve into because the Seattle police chief is going to resign today at 11 o'clock there de funding dismantling the police department in Seattle.

Which BLM ink is calling reparations for felony felony criminal conduct, And basically, the attorney general is out there talking about several of these groups are organizing this, there are committing these acts of violence, and this is what he told Mark Levin regarding BLM ain't that's black lives matter incorporated. They are a revolutionary group that is interested in in some form of socialism. Communism there essentially, Bolsheviks. Their tactics are our fascistic. Find your description of miss consistent with what I have seen with the Trump Administration. You know, a lot of it has been the demonization of the Trump Administration. From Day one. I went back and I watched his victory speech after election night. People should go back and look at it. Avery measured. It was a very statesmanlike speech, he offered the olive branch. He praised Hillary Clinton thanked her for all her service to the country talked about working together to make things better for the American people. That was the day he won. And from that point forward, there's been the resistance. They were trying to impeach him from day one. They have done everything they can. They've shredded the norms of our system. To do what they can to drive him from office or to debilitate is administration. And I think it's because of the desire for power that the the left wants power because that is essentially their state of grace and their their secular religion. They want to run people's lives so they can design utopia for all of us. That's what You know, that's what turns them on, and it's the it's the lust for power, right. Hit it right on the head. I haven't anybody sum that up. Eloquent lay in a long time, and that's just on BLM and left in general. Now, let's get to the teeth and what he had to say about them. It's a form of sort of. It's a new form of urban guerrilla warfare, you know, now Used to speak about SE Tung used to speak about the gorilla being like fish. Swimming in the ocean. The way the gorilla moves through the people. The grill hides out among the people as a fish in the ocean, and what they do is they are essentially Shielding themselves or shrouding themselves and First Amendment activity. They go into the demonstrations, which are exercising 1st 1st Amendment activity, and they insinuate themselves in there. To shield themselves. That's where they swim. And what they do is they hijacked these Demonstrations and they and they provoked violence. And they have various tiers of people from the sort of top provocateurs down through people who are their minions and sort of run the run the violent missions. But it it's it's ah, you know, difficult phenomenon to deal with their highly organized at thes. Demonstrations and, ah You know these tactics that they use are designed and and the way the media response from, of course with media doesn't take Footage of what's happening. They don't take the footage of the rocks being from He's actually right about that as well. So I mean, that's that's what's going on our city's inverse. I think we're announcing some empirical evidence that Democrat voters in the suburban rural areas outside the cities are really beginning. To rethink their support for Joe Biden. Because the longer this continues, I think they're gonna want somebody is going to put him into. This is bizarre to think, Sean that Jesse Jackson would come out. On saying negative things about this writing before any major Democrat politician does. I mean, you still have the Democrats basically making excuses or being silent about this silence is consent. I mean, if you say nothing at all that's consenting to what's going on, and that that is the default position. Of every elected Democrat in this country. There's a saying nothing at all and hope that somehow it goes away and they could keep those people who now make up a significant portion of their voting base.

Biden VP Search Narrows to Kamala Harris: Does She Want the Job?
"Democratic presidential nominee of Vice President Joe Biden could reportedly announced his pick for a running mate as soon as this week. California Senator Kamala Harris. API appears to be one of the leading candidates, but some are questioning if she AH wants to take the job or not for more key CBS News anchor Dan Mitchinson spoke with Carla Marinucci. Senior writer for Politico California playbook. Carla. What do you think? First of all, Do you think this could be Harris there? Even in the last days, Vegas betting circled at this point. Dan is being number one on Joe Biden's list. Who knows how that's gonna play out? But the fact is that Kamala Harris has been mentioned before. For other Possibilities in the administration, including attorney general, including possibly a nominee for the Supreme Court. Obama and during the Obama administration, she was reportedly asked if she wanted to be attorney general. She turned that down on the issue of the Supreme Court. She said She wanted to run for Senate at the time. But times have changed, And perhaps she might have changed her mind. She's getting advice from some Democrats that she might consider turning down the VP job because the attorney general job at this point could be more consequential. Willie Brown, who former San Francisco mayor said in his column on Sunday that he thought, uh, right right now, there's nobody left important than the vice president. I mean, as he said, Ask Mike Pence so that nobody thinks the vice president is a really influential job. But the attorney general, ah could have a long to do list ahead and that could include prosecuting Trump in the trump family law enforcement reform, Other issues related tio inspector generals and other things that the Trump administration has done and Democrats I think may be cheering that on, so we'll see how it plays out. But certainly Kamala Harris has a lot of different possibilities. But right now it looks like she may be at the top of the list or very close to it when it comes to Joe Biden, vice presidential nominee, But let me ask you this. I mean, Biden is gonna have a lot of California locked in the rest of the country, not necessarily a big fan of our state. Do you think a VP from here would hurt or help him then? That's been a debate Janet, But the fact is Kamala Harris has huge name recognition in the rest of the country. The You don't want the advice presidential nominee to do any harm. But in commonly Harrison's case, she could help in helping deliver some of those states where you need to rev up the Democratic base of progressive base. She had those followers right. She had a presidential campaign that brought her to all of those swing states. And so many voters know her out there more than some of the other women on the list. That doesn't mean, however, that people like Karen Bass, perhaps the House member from Los Angeles, Uh, Susan Rice, former ambassador and Tammy Duckworth's, uh, the senator from Illinois who is highly thought of this well couldn't be part of the mix as well. But how tough would this be for not only Biden but for Harris if she decides to run in four years if Biden's only in there for one or even in eight to move into the White House when we have a pandemic going on, and an economic recession? Yeah, you've actually hit on it and that some of the reasons why we've heard some doubts about Kamala Harris being mentioned the fact that she's ambitious. She clearly wants to run for president in some point And the go by in vice presidential nominee is in effect giving a leg up to whoever wants to do that It is effective primary in a way for the for the next presidential contest. Many Democrats would believe that that May hurt Joe Biden in some respects because they may want not wantto help. Comma. Harris is much when it comes to pushing legislation in Washington because they won't want to advance her chances. There's going to be a lot of Democrats who want to run for president, Uh, in 2024. So at this point, Yeah, Connell, Harris and her future plans and her future ambitions have all been part of the mix. It's why some Democrats say she may be the best choice for Joe Biden. Alright, Gotta run real quick. Will she be offered the the VP, And if she is, will she take it? He'll take it if she's offered, Will she be offered? That's the $1,000,000 question right now. That's Carla Marinucci, senior writer for political Oh California playbook.
Unwanted Truths: Inside Trump’s Battles With U.S. Intelligence Agencies
"Us now is Robert Draper writer at large for the New York Times magazine. He's the author of several books including most recently to start a war how the Bush administration took America into Iraq Arbor draper has just published this landmark piece of reporting the Times magazine. It's called unwanted truth this inside trump's battles with US intelligence agencies among the scoops embedded here is news that. The. White House pressured the Director of National Intelligence to change and intelligence community conclusion that Russia wanted president trump reelected in two thousand, twenty, the intelligence director at the time Dan Coats said, no, he was then fired his successor signed off on the change, but he was then fired after one of his deputies briefed Congress that in fact, Russia is working to reelect president trump this year. Mr Draper I, thank you for this reporting for joining us here tonight to help us understand it. Thanks very much for your time. I've said a lot of words about the. Words that you have reported here and that you have printed. Let me just ask if I got anything wrong or if you think that I'm looking at anything the wrong way around. To actually think presences I did when issue two clarifications the I rooted in the most important is that I am not aware the Joe McGuire had anything to do with the alteration of the National Intelligence Estimate this all took place during his first couple of weeks on the job when his hands were very much full with Ukraine whistleblower incident as you correctly pointed at and so this really. Anthem it matter win the in I was approved on September the twenty six inch testifying on the hill all day long. So he wasn't able to cheer that meeting. So that's the first second thing is that You know they're a don't want the story to give anyone the impression that the intelligence community as a whole has been bent to the will of Donald Trump. There's still plenty of analysts in case officers who are doing very good work. The problem is that the people above them have been in the line of fire with the trump administration and had begun to water down such that the intelligence products do not have the integrity that they once did not mean saying black is why end up as down but they are saying things in a more equivocating fashion and we saw this most recently just out of this past Friday. On a no deny official release this election security report saying that for the first time did yes it did appear the Russia. Trump essentially the same breath saying that China in Iran. Favored Biden is if it were kind of a jump ball or something in that was working patient, you did not see before the trump presidency. I feel like I. Thank you for for those clarifications and for drilling down on those things in that way I feel like. When I read it, the beginning of your piece that Dan Coats was pressured to change the National Intelligence Estimate around Russia's intentions for the two thousand election and he said, no felt like, wow, that's that's really big news about Dan Coats to find out that that happened just before he was fired. Is itself a scoop. But then to find out that the National Intelligence Estimate. was in fact watered down in the way that the White House wanted under Joe McGuire. It it does seem like the sort of bending to the White House's will equivocating on things that aren't equivocal casting things in a way that doesn't you know is designed not to upset the president or put things in ways that he likes it does feel like it's not just pressure, but it's effective pressure that's actually working on the I say. Over sharing in. A. probably Rachel that the matter of. Russia in election security has been a sore subject since before trump's presidency and everyone knew I in the NFC in the West Wing and certainly in the intelligence community that to bring the very matter of Russia interfering in two thousand sixteen, it's likely interference patterns through the midterms and into twenty twenty an most of all that if they were trump would be to call into question the legitimacy of this presidency. That's how he would receive this and so because it was such an unpleasant thing as report out then chief definite Mulvaney and then national security advisor. John was a considerable lengths to to keep this completely off the agenda would get on the agenda for example, when it was a single in a seat meeting at relating to Russia in Election Security Pearson Nelson than the secretary of. Homeland Security didn't get five minutes into it before trump started interrupting her and asking questions about a wall along the Mexican border. So this has been a distasteful subject to him people around him have known that and they have adjusted themselves unfortunately accordingly.

Briefly China dislikes president trump whom it regards as unpredictable and wants him so that he can't in Beijing's view, continue to damage Chinese interests Iran also dislikes the incumbent and sees the prospect of his reelection as likely to mean increased pressure on the Islamic republic and pressure that would be designed to bring about regime change in Tehran. Iran also has a more general interest in undermining US institutions. The statement says. Russia has been busy denigrating former vice president biden who Moscow sees is dangerously connected with Ukraine and with the Obama Administration's disapproval of Russia's armed slow motion re engorgement of that country he's also seen as part of an anti Russian establishment. So China and Doron Trend Blue Russia read the returns from Pyongyang aren't in yet.

Biden says Trump executive order is 'a reckless war on Social Security'
"Trump has signed a series of executive orders to help Americans hurt by covert 19. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow tells ABC is this week that restarting enhanced unemployment benefits won't be complicated. I don't think that'd be a huge delay. Labor Department has been working with states. States of the ones that process the federal benefits before, so I don't see any reason why I'd be all that difficult. Most of their systems have been upgraded, but Labor Department will be deeply involved in helping them at Trump opponent, Joe Biden reacted to the president's move. Joe Biden slammed President Trump's executive order to defer payment of payroll taxes through the end of the year for Americans making less than about $100,000 annually. Thing, it would undermine the entire financial footing of Social Security.

Trump takes executive action on economic relief
"This is America right now by the numbers. Some five million people have confirmed Corona virus infections. Just yesterday, 55,000 people tested positive. Covad, 19 killed 1100 people in the last 24 hours, and more than 30 million people are relying on some form of unemployment benefit. Congress has failed so far to agree on a new relief bill. So yesterday, President Trump signed executive orders to extend a number of temporary economic measures, and all of this is happening as we race toward an election in November. We're joined now by NPR's national political correspondent Mara Liasson. Hi, Mara. Hi, Lulu. So the president spent a lot of time slamming Democratic lawmakers yesterday and rolled out economic relief that we should say is temporary but aren't Many Senate Republicans dead set against extending these extra benefits. Yes, they are, but they're also supposedly against any president. Usurping Congress is constitutional power of the purse that is the power to tax and spend. But politically for the moment, at least, this is a point for Trump. He gets to say Congress couldn't or wouldn't act. But I did, even though there might be a lot less than meets the eye with some of these executive actions. It's unclear if the unemployment extension will actually happen. And when it comes to the eviction relief, for instance. The memo he signed merely tells federal agencies to quote consider if evictions should be stopped, so maybe less there than meets the eye. Meanwhile, we should note that the pace of the presidential races, of course, picking up and Vice President Joe Biden is giving more interviews and doing more public speaking and Republicans are watching. And they have AH, weaponized some of Biden's answers. Well, some violins, answers have been what we call gaffes. He made another one while answering your question. Lulu on a panel consisting of black and Latino journalists. You asked him a question that would was very important to Latino voters in Florida. You asked him if he would reengage with Cuba. Here's what he said. What you all know, but most people don't know. Unlike the African American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is incredibly diverse community. With incredibly different attitudes about different things. Unlike the African American community, why bring up African Americans at all, and suggests that they are monolithic in their views. So this is another gas. Biden's recent gaffes are often about African Americans. Remember, he said. If you're voting for Trump quote, you ain't black. They're always unprompted. And it's inexplicable, given the support he has among African Americans, given that African American voters saved his candidacy, But is this a winning strategy for the GOP? Well, look, they depend on Biden making gaffes. They're hoping to use them against him. But the big question is. Maybe this is like 2016 when all of the outrageous things that Trump said that Democrats thought would hurt him. Didn't Biden's poll numbers are pretty steady? Why? Maybe because this race is a referendum on the incumbent, and the big question is, Will it stay that way? Will trump succeed in making this race into a binary choice?

"I was glad to work with the vice president. informing six separate task forces, which had some of the most knowledgeable people in the country, coming together to come up with a compromise and I think the compromise that are they came up with? If implemented will make Biden the most progressive president since FDR Hello welcome to another episode of the weeds on the box media podcast network. I'm Matthew Yglesias here with Ezra Klein We're going to talk today about Joe Biden International Man of mystery, but he think so. They're a bunch of to talk about and I think we need to go in a certain order because this has been like a banner week for Joe Biden policy releases so about a week ago. The Joe Biden Bernie Sanders. Joint Task Forces came out. It's a hundred ten pages worth of task force documentation, covering the joint recommendations on climate change on criminal justice on healthcare on the economy on on budget different stuff. Really I think. Interesting unusual document I will note reading the Word Democrats is used two hundred twenty nine times. This is really a party platform, and then by the released this bill back better plan, which is induced centerpiece framing for his economic, actually for all of his agenda Israeli. And I was on a call with the vice president and a couple of other reporters about that that I thought revealed some interesting things about how he's thinking about this, and even more importantly how he's thinking about passing it. But I should start with taskforce's. Because in some ways they lay the groundwork for for what comes next. I know you've been spending some time Matt reporting on that, yes. Oh I could talk to a lot of the people who were involved in the task forces sort of from the from the left hand side at both officially and unofficially and. There's a lot of. Excitement I would say I mean I'm greg non working on a piece about this? Trying to tweak the language APP, but there is a Joe Biden agenda now that people on the left at least on the faction of the left that participate in this process. Her pretty enthusiastic about. So Fat Fashek here managed. Bernie, Sanders Campaign? I was talking to him about this and I. was asking him like how? How should we think about about Joe Biden? Look like by a moderate Democrat. He's an establishment Democrat but that also means that you know as politics shifts as his sense of what's politically possible shifts that by shifted with it, and fast you know he, he said like speaking of of himself and his sort of Bernie faction. He said you know we're the heartbeat of the Democratic Party. Basically pump the ideas into the bloodstream of the party. But he feels that Biden has taken up a lot of those ideas on domestic policy. I quote that you know that that bloodstream. We'll each a he'd from justice. Democrats told me something similar. Not so much you know even for its veracity, but because it it indicates to me that a lot of people on the left have gotten themselves to a point where they feel good enough about Joe Biden that they want to start explaining to me. That like they deserve credit. For Biden right rather than a situation. We were in months ago where there was a lot like. Give me a lot of problems with Joe, Biden, like Israeli not exciting people. He doesn't have a real vision now. It's like it's it's all turned around not from literally every left-wing person in America for the people who? Work with Alexandria Qazi Oh Cortez the people who work with Bernie Sanders. We will work with elected officials. They think that this is a winning platform. They think it has a lot of really good ideas in it, and they are eager to be seen as having contributed to the formulation of those ideas particularly. You mentioned the the bill back. Better speech, but particularly as the pandemic has sort of. Increased everybody says that the government needs to do a lot of stuff, they think that on kind of domestic priorities there is a sort of a meeting of the minds there. There's no faction of the Democratic Party. That saying oh well, this is no big deal. We can just sort of let the market handle it. Let's get ut on this. What are some of the places where the task force ends up substantively moving? Joe Biden in direction already was end or bringing something new. Like what what is. What is it amount to on policy? I saying this sort of headline result is the change of the carbon-free electricity goal from twenty fifty up to twenty thirty five. Is a sort of shifts it from realm of this is an abstraction to this is a crisis that we need to address right now. That's a sort of sunrise movement people, but it to me because I've been sort of wrangling with them for months now as to like what difference to these targets even make you know. It's like we can say like. We're going to be all UNICORNS and lollipops by twenty fifty someone else's. Else's is can be UNICORNS and lollipops, and we won't need any nuclear power, and it's like so what right but the way they put it to me. Is that the twenty thirty five goal moves the endpoint close enough to the president that you are committed to doing changes in the first four to eight years of a Biden presidency that would be noticeable. Right like you you. You have to make a big change now. Now to get anywhere within the neighborhood of that target, it's only moved up to There's also a bunch of changes I think. This is probably not going to be the focus of our conversation, but sort of small changes around immigration policy at were Biden has moved closer to what activists were looking for net that he wasn't there, but these were discussions that didn't actually take place during the campaign about detention beds about. About the remain Mexico policy all kinds of other stuff like that, so he's he's taken on a lot of what the advocates wanted. And in that case, the whole sort of shadow debate over decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings has kind of actually helped pave the road for everyone being happy with this, because that was like a big high profile, fight and Biden like owned the moderate lane of saying he wasn't going to do that. And he still isn't, but advocates had never actually been that interested in that topic, and he has now made policy commitments to them that they are bunch more interested in..

The train wreck continues with these interviews. You know whether he said. I'm going to be joe or beat Joe Biden. It sounded like Beach Biden to me, but whatever it is, but he's doing a pretty good job of beating himself, and he does this interview with a radio host by the name of Charlemagne. It was so bad you can see like Joe shushing away a staffer who tried to prevent. You know this ever confused boss from from answering any more questions, and that's when he said the line that you just heard. You Ain't black if you don't support him in the election. Well. Now rightly, all the criticism has been taking place You have even the radio host Charlemagne saying that Biden is an intricate part of the system that needs to be dismantled the founder of B. E.

He spent his fifteen minutes laying the wreath on Memorial Day back in his basement, being stupid and he couldn't Bill O'Reilly. Right couldn't answer the question and that is. What would you do differently joe? Listen to the experts. That's not an answer because Donald Trump listened to the experts and the expert by the way none of the experts agreed with him on the travel ban or the quarantine or the subsequent travel bans. He did all that on his own. And we'll Joe, Biden well I. Think this whole Mucho thing about not wearing a mask. The president probably is the one person doesn't have to wear a mask because he's getting tested and everyone around him has to get tested. which is the right thing to do and I'd say that regardless of WHO's the president? But what's going to happen in one hundred sixty days? A lot is going to happen. Then you're GONNA have once Joe has to come out his bunker and they're going to have whatever convention they're gonNA. Have Trump's GONNA have a convention, a real convention, regardless of what the Democrats do and I I would imagine. There's probably pressure on the Democrats, Wa-, what do we do? He's GonNa. Have One. We're GONNA. Look stupid. Joe Is going to be in his basement. That's not going to look to exciting so we'll see what happens here. But then he's going to have to answer for quid pro quo. Joe Is going to have to answer for zero experience hunter and Ukraine and China then he's going to have to identify what he would have done differently why he called. The travel bans phobic hysterical fearmongering. He's going to have to explain why eight years as vice president thirteen million more Americans on food stamps eight million more in poverty. Then he's going to have to explain. Why did why did IT TAKE DONALD TRUMP? Because he's you know he now has the definition while if you vote for trump, you ain't black. Okay, and even said he's voting for Biden on the sorry to defeat Biden Mike. Defeat Biden because you're doing a good job of it so far. you know now. He's accusing him of you know it's just like he's. He's flailing. And everyone's hoping. For Your Points Michelle. Obama he can't lose I don't know. Michelle Obama wants it or not, but I'll take trump's economic record against the Obama Biden record any day, and I'll take trump's foreign policy success and beating Baghdadi and killing him and killing.

"All things Riley Simple Ma'am Mr O'Reilly. All right. You WanNa talk about Biden Women enough time last. Segment your thoughts on this on CNN last night. Very simple question posed. If you were President what would you do differently to handle pandemic saw? Mr Biden was lucid. He had control over his words last night killing Reagan. So I'm familiar with because when Ronald Reagan got shot. He lost that ability for a little while. Got It back so biden could not or would not answer that question and I'm sitting there going what's going on. I mean you don't have anything that you would do differently. He said Oh. I've listened to the scientists like who was that imply that trump doesn't listen to the side. There's what's out there. I mean come on think not welcome. Sorry go ahead. Well anything but he listened to the scientists. That's what when they said and this is where there was no option here. The country demanded a shutdown the projections which have all been wrong. So far were two and a half million Americans. We're going to die bill. That's what they told us. They got it wrong. China lied all the models were wrong. You know faucher. I love the guy but he was saying. The risk is low on February twenty-ninth and he was saying that you know you don't have to wear a mask like March tenth and March nineteen. If you're young and healthy you can go on a cruise ship. Yeah but that was a teed up for Biden to absolutely knock it out of the park. Here's what I would do differently than president trump. Abcd he couldn't come up with one Hannity. WanNa why because while they were impeaching him. He put in the travel ban. This was ten days after the first identified corona virus case then the quarantine I in over fifty years then subsequent travel bans alder and impeachment. They weren't talking about corona.

"Ones elitist. Help. Economy recover no way you want him to be the one to help prevent the spread of Corona virus now and and the president trump is getting the credit for what's being done and in California, which is a real election and the first time in decades that we looked to see from Democrats Republicans. They basically the mayor held up announcing that he was gonNA shut the city of La down until August he held that right. You know just when it's too late at the voters would react, and as of today, the last numbers I saw Garcia was up by twelve points, not even. So Donald Trump is the way to get elected in any job. Never trumpers distance himself making a big mistake. I. Don't see that I mean Biden the sheltering in place. Scott and every time he goes on, does one of his stupid virtual town halls. He looks dumber than the last one. even this week another disaster. My aunt any walks to the camera takes off as aviator sunglasses I. Mean it just looks so contrived fake and phony in this guy he he's not been pushed. He's not been stretched at all or challenged in any way, and he seems to do best when he's hiding at some point doesn't have to come out of his basement. Well some point you will have to come out of his basement and the notion. I can't even imagine what a debate between the two candidates will look like in terms of energy level in terms of focusing on issues and everything else you know look. There is John mentioned buyer's remorse. thirty five percent of voters say it's still at least somewhat likely. Biden is going to be replaced as the nominee, and that includes twenty eight Senate Democrats that speaks to a tremendous lack of okay, so then that that's nominee that raises the question. You think he gets replaced you. There's a chance Scott Rasmussen than Bat than John. It is a difficult thing to replace him. For one reason that reason is Bernie Sanders because a lot of Democrats say oh, we need somebody like governor. Cuomo whoever else. If you take the nomination away from Joe Biden and do not give it to Bernie Sanders the Bernie rose. You're just going to just leave free to civil war within the Democratic Party, so I don't think it's going to happen but I. Think it's going to be an ongoing issue. Matt, What Jill? Biden Jill his wife, says well. You know I just don't think my husband's up to it. What happens then? I think it becomes a shift show. Well, I think it would be a method that you know Scott makes it very good point about Bernie Sanders group, but probably the the the deft way for them to do, it would be for Biden get the nomination. And after he gets the nomination at some point there quickly there after have to bow then your vice presidential nominee would likely become your presidential nominee, and that person is going to be an Obama approved. Person I can guarantee you that so that that's probably the only way they could pull it off and I know there are a lot of rules DNC. Not, sure they can do it prior to that, and maybe they couldn't do it after that I do think this. Though I think that Biden is going to increasingly right now. The public's not focused, Scott. We're word about a pandemic. We're worried about our own livelihood and our our safety when we start focusing on these candidates, and they really see how weak by this that's when the Democrats are going to start to really panic..

"Everything else is closed, but he opened up new polling places just to help in democratic more democratic parts of the district What do you make of those two? Victories, because my interpretation is, is that whatever momentum Democrats might have had? In two thousand eighteen would be gone. Scott shown you know when you talk about these things. I always offer the caution that people attach too much You know excitement to special elections, but these do cut against the narrative that somehow this is all a disaster for the president, and for the Republicans something going on out there Matt mentioned people who are anxious to get back out to work We did a poll. Poll, the other day, and found that sixty percent of voters six out of ten believe that all businesses should be allowed to reopen now as long as they practice some you know safety protocols, only twenty six percent oppose. This is not the narrative we're hearing. I think that's feeding into some of these special election results and I think it's. It's a larger problem for the. The Democrats in the sense that we are not able to sustain these lockdowns. They are not a popular a response, and there is no plan and some of the day I live in New York City. There's no plan here to reopen the city anytime soon, and that is a problem in creating increasing levels of frustration so I think if you begin to look at the. The dynamics of I think we've passed a tipping point. Voters are saying okay. A week or two of a lockdown may have been okay to get us past the initial surge this certainly in New York it was, it was well received, but now let's get back to the business of making. America work and I think people were are looking to a different kind of leadership for that. We have a couple of issues for emerging on Biden one is he's were recruiting Ao. Cossio Cortez to serve on a climate change panel and he's working with Bernie Sanders. He said John McLaughlin number two on Monday with George Stephanopoulos Biden denied any knowledge of the Flynn case and then it turns out today that he was one of the people that requested the unmasking of General Flynn on eight days before he left office, Vice President that might be a problem for him. his problems with China and his problems with you know promising illegal immigrants, a pathway to citizenship, and even suggesting that Obama you know. He regretted what they did in the Obama years to illegal immigrants. This is what I what I mentioned before now Joe Biden is the candidate. The Democrats are finding out about them. And there's there's there's GonNa. Be Buyer's remorse among the Democrats because there's no one thousand four and when you ask voters, you want him to be the.

"I've only spoken to her once since She came out with her whole story and it. The entire conversation was more about moral support. And you know giving her whatever feedback. I could in terms of the way in which people are going to come for her. The various things that she needed to do to protect herself. I think it was more a lot more practical advice and also just moral support and letting her know that I was thinking about her and that. I'm you know obviously empathize with everything. She's going through. What's your number one piece of practical advice? My number one piece of practical advice to her was that she just really needed to take it day by day and to focus on herself and her truth and her why her why yes like. Why did you decide to speak out? Tell me more about that. Well that's for me. That's what kept me grounded when I was experiencing so much harassment after I spoke about my interactions with that I had to always focus on. Why did I decide to do this? And we talked about those reasons. I'm curious why did you decide to tell your story? I'm not sure that I know that. Like what what your decision process was. The primary reason was because I began to see photos emerge of him interacting with other women and there were stories that were written and there was even a Vignette that was done by John. Stewart and making fun of creepy uncle. Joe Biden left his hands on Stephanie. Carter shoulders for an estimated twenty seconds. You seem tense distress of me. Groping you for twenty eight straight seconds and so. I had to constantly be reminded that he was acting this way that he was making women feel uncomfortable and everyone was just laughing about it. It was not being treated seriously and I knew from personal experience what that felt like and it was wrong for Lucy. Telling her own story was a way of shifting. The way the rest of us saw what happened to her not as an incident that was laughably awkward but as an incident where she was actually harmed and that gives her empathy for. Tara Reid who seems to be seeing what happened in our own life through new eyes. Her allegations of what happened in. Biden's office have become more extreme over time at I read told. Reporters Biden made her uncomfortable. She said he ran a finger up her neck during a meeting her to serve cocktails because she had nice legs. But that story evolved into a full on assault charge. I think that the way in which we characterize the various things that she has done like for example. I don't consider the stories that she has said. I don't consider them being a story. Why not because she? All she did was leave out details. She hasn't changed the fundamental substance of any of the things that she said she experienced. It is all been part. She omitted in A. This isn't coming from her. This is what I would I would think. Is that as you gain confidence or the courage to tell a little bit more And she did try to tell a little bit more shortly thereafter but media did not in the AP said this that they were not able at the time to robbery those parts of the stories and yet Katie Helper. Now all of these additional journalists have so you have to question. How much effort did you really put into crop rating these stories that they were so easily corroborated. Al Right we should say. Joe Biden denies that anything happened between himself and Tara Reid it sounds like you believe all of allegations including the most recent ones. I do believe Tara. Ultimately in all of these situations everyone will have to come to their own conclusion. You know because there's rarely smoking gun evidence and I just hope that win folks are assessing that that they're doing so with at least in informed viewpoint and not because they have immediately made this knee-jerk reaction because this person doesn't fit the profile of a perfect victim..

"Quick were boarding. Here are the top. This episode does describe an incident of sexual assault. I heard that you have this file. You keep of hate mail. You've gotten over the last year or so. Is that true? Yes Lucy. Florez knows what it means to accuse a powerful man of hurting you. She knows what you can lose. It gets filled almost luckily not daily but it was daily. What's in there? It's a lot of. It's a lot of? Hey it's a lot of vitriol. It's a lot of cruelty and a couple. That are scary so I keep all of those because you just frankly never know when something terrible could potentially happen to you and you want there to be a record last spring before Joe Biden was officially even running for president. Lucie Florida accused him of making her uncomfortable in such a peculiar way that it seemed hard to have made up. The story goes like this movie. Lucy been running for Lieutenant. Governor of Nevada Biden had agreed to stump with her. This is back in two thousand fourteen. Lucy says they were getting ready to step out on stage together. They're all blind up listening for their cues. We were all waiting to be called and I feel his hands on me on my shoulders and that in and of itself was already weird because I was like. Oh my God the vice president. Lucy can't forget these little details of their interaction. How she hadn't washed her hair that morning and it made her especially mortified when Biden leaned in to sniff her head and then he plans this slow kiss on the top of my head and I am just. I don't know what to do. I I don't move I don't my arms are still at my side. I I just I just and I'm literally just praying to God. That is willing to listen for my name to be called because I just want to be out of that situation last year as Lucy told this story publicly over and over again it wasn't just hate mail that started pouring in. There are also messages of support messages from women. Saying I've been in situations just like that one with the boss or a with Joe Biden after you spoke out how many other women came forward with their own allegations I always lose track. I think it was seven or eight total Including me so I think it was an additional seven or an additional six. One of these women was Tara. Reid Tara Reid. A former Biden staffer accusing the former. Vp of sexual assault says she TARA ARENA SENATE PERSON. You probably know her name by now. A year. After Lucy Flora came forward were reads allegations are now at the forefront read telling the Associated Press quote. I know that I was too scared to write about the sexual assault read alleges that Biden went far beyond sniffing her hair. She says he assaulted her when she worked in his Senate office back in the ninety s Lucie Florida said that after she went public with her allegation Tara. Reid reached out to her wanted to talk. I do still have the email where she talked about that. She had several incidents with Joe Biden. And that she wanted to speak out as well but I did not end up reaching out to her because it was such a it was. It was a really difficult thing to bear. You know your as a sad. It's I don't think we talk enough about what women experience when they speak out against a powerful man you must. You must wonder what she would have sent to you. I do. I do wonder ally and I you know and I actually feel a little bit of guilt.

"All right so let's get into some details about who joe might nominate and the best way to look at that. I think is a kind of working our way through his history I think all of us were sort of surprised. Going through is history. How sort of effective. He seems to have been against justices in a lot of ways. At least he was a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee for a big chunk of his tenure as Senator and he was the chair of it from eighty seven through ninety five. I that committee holds hearings on and investigates nominations to the Supreme Court. And so I wanNA kind of run through his votes and We should note here that Supreme Court. Nominations weren't really contentious at all until about the mid eighties. Right started being contentious. And then it's sort of ratcheted up to the current day where every single one You know sort of a battle in eighty one. He voted yes on. Sandra Day. O'connor was a unanimous. Vote for yes in eighty six. He voted no on Rehnquist. As the Chief Justice Rehnquist been nominated to the courts in the early seventies and it was appointed as an associate justice. Reagan nominates him to be the chief justice. The reason that it was sort of contentious is that Rehnquist apparently tried to convince Justice Jackson in the early fifties to oppose Brown v the Board of Education to side with the segregationists and he claimed that he was just sort of an intellectual exercise when he was testifying to the committee in what was almost certainly perjury and that was one of the first. Modern era fights for over Supreme Court. Justice Biden opposes him in eighty six. So it's Yes for Scalia In a ninety eight to zero vote in Nineteen eighty-six which While a a mistake. In retrospect it was uncontroversial in large part because it was considered a big deal to get an Italian American on the court. Yeah not a joke. Eighty-seven he opposes Robert. Bork maybe the nomination that led us to where we are in terms of how aggressive the fights can be over. Supreme Court appointments. Yeah for our listeners. Who Don't Know Robert? Bourke is just a fucking huge piece of shit like your real garbage in the mid nineties after his nomination had died and all that he wrote a book called slouching toward Gomorrah Modern Liberalism and American decline like. That's the type of guy that they were trying to put on the fucking Supreme Court. He's also been very very influential in antitrust law. Which is you know all about like how we handle monopolies or prevent monopolies. I don't know if anybody has like taking a peek out their window and and you know noticed what the what. The weather's like in terms of American capitalism and monopolies. But I don't think he's theories of law have panned out to how it was Biden voted. No he played an instrumental role. In killing BORK's domination he helped recruit a few Republicans to make the no vote. Bipartisan and just publicly grilled bork on The Right to privacy which you know obviously is what underlies women's right to choose Having abortion in that Supreme Court history. That right goes back to a case called Griswold v Connecticut which was about regulating contraception and preventing people from getting contraception. And it was about you know married families having autonomy in their the privacy of their bedrooms and Biden. Just grills bork on this. And if you watch it if you don't really know what's going on it can be a little confusing but it's if you know even a little. It's pretty clear that Biden's just trying to get bored to come out and say women shouldn't have these rights and Bork is just like fuck in dodging him saying like look. Yeah have openly criticized Griswald And by Extension Roe v Wade by I've criticized the reasoning. The court used to get to these decisions. I'M NOT SAYING THAT. Like necessarily the right desert does not exist and at some point. Biden. 'cause look you've been a lot of rest for a long time you've been talking about this for a long time really telling you've seen nothing in the constitution one way or another to like make this call. You're one of the most Well read and scholarly people to come before this committee in all your short life. Have you come up with any other way to protect a married couple under the constitution against an action by a government? Telling them what they can or cannot do about birth control in their bedroom. Is there any constitutional rights anywhere in the constitution? I have never engaged in that exercise. I passed on what I was doing was criticizing doctrine. The Supreme Court was creating which was capable of being applied in unknown ways in the futures basically they killed Bork's nominee. Yeah right sort of exposed and clearly obviously just trying to avoid saying what was blatantly true you know it ended it which is good because he replaced with fucking Kennedy. Who for all his faults and we've talked about him? Being an idiot is much better than Robert. Bork and especially on both Abortion and on gay rights. Yeah Yeah you don't get the gay marriage decision. You don't work for the majority. The gay marriage is illegal in this country in many states. Without this happening right right. Yeah all right so Joe Biden. Votes no onboard. He's instrumental in knocking bork. Damn embarks place. Comes Anthony Kennedy? He votes yes on Kennedy who was confirmed ninety seven zero he votes for suitor Justice Suitor. Who ends up being a liberal by the way although as Bush senior nominee sooner gets confirmed? And then Clarence Thomas Biden votes. No on Thomas but Asterisk he leads the hearings in his as head of the committee and essentially. Just let's Republican senators openly smear Anita Hill. Who had accused very credibly in my view. Clarence Thomas of sexually harassing her at the Biden voted no on Thomas. Whatever the end of the day his actions probably didn't have a effect on the outcome of Thomas's confirmation? Just because things had sort of crystallize along party lines already at that point but his actions at that hearing nothing short of disgraceful just a fence rows. Moral failure really discussing stuff right. Yeah exactly So two thousand five by votes. No on Chief Justice John Roberts balls and strikes Mr Balls and strikes. The Umpire himself young player himself The vote was seventy eight twenty two so there was some real democratic opposition. But this wasn't a contentious one. I don't think anyone really thought that he would lose the same year he votes no on Samuel Alito The current sort of Resident Weirdo on the court. Thank yeah resident dumb ass after I think it's two thousand seven buns no longer a senator but he made statements opposing Corsican. Cavenaugh the bottom line here is. You've got some real genuine dark spots in how he handled this stuff is actual votes have been surprisingly strong. It's hard to imagine someone being much stronger I frankly he you know. He's opposed just about every Republican nominee in the past thirty years every Republican nominee since suitor. My guess is a big part of this is. He's just sort of a party. I guy think he's also been a hard liner on Roe v Wade. Frankly that's a big part of it for him and of course probably worth noting Biden's in the White House. When Obama Nominates Sotomayor and Kagan Keagan very sharp I think maybe the sharpest member of the court great writer reliable liberal vote on the big issues but she can be wishy washy strong tendencies towards formalistic reasoning for chefs. Yeah Soda my or may be impure jurisprudential terms these strongest Supreme Court justice in history by favorite. He's great and you know. I think we can mostly ignore Merrick. Garland this conversation is a pathetic and embarrassing attempt by Obama to nominate someone who the Republicans would approve. But I do want to note that I am like a little bit haunted. By the prospect that bienne would nominee Carlin fulfill legacy. He was once asked about it and said that he was open to it. Probably a meaningless statement. You know. Someone's like are you opening this sure. But yet if he did that I mean I cannot tell you how much it would just fucking flip my brain on its head. I'm no longer doing the podcast. I'm going Fulton Che Guevara if he does that. Yeah the one thing that gives me. Some confidence is his pledge right is publicly stated in reiterated that he would dominate the first black woman to sit on the Supreme Court which I mean. It's a very Joe Biden thing to say to make that sort of campaign right but like it's completely separate from ideology right. You ever seen a black lady up there yeah yeah. I don't know if you guys saw this. But Jonathan Turley the biggest fucking hack law. Professor wrote an article criticizing Biden. Pledge Calling it affirmative action in court for Constitutional Shit and one of his arguments about why this is like a bad pledge is because they're not many black women judges in select.

Jonathan early fucking full grown adult putting on Florida's before he goes in.

"All on Biden Bernie has nothing to lose If I can do no harm right is he's challenge is going to be don't belittle don't flood any answers and he's you know let's face it. He needs he needs that movement that Sanders has built. He's not going to get all by the way there's going to be someone on that are never but but he's got to get most of it And they've got to get them turn out he's got to get them excited. And he he's not there yet although let. Let's just talk about Michigan for a second? And let's talk about Michigan Rick with an eye towards the general election. Assuming that Biden continues along this path pulls it off. He's the Democratic nominee Michigan's. Obviously I mean one of the absolute most important states in general election one of those that Donald Trump won and helped get him to in into the White House. We know all of that but if you look you mentioned that he won every county against Bernie Sanders. I think that the more. That's a very important thing. A lot of those counties are counties that he's going to have to take to be sure Donald Trump but the other thing was turnout was records for Democratic primary. That's right and and it was against the backdrop of corona virus and that scare and the knowledge that most of the candidates that were running. We're not in the race anymore. We're down to two in the final days. Yeah there are a lot of early votes. Something like forty percent of them early votes but The this was this was a test of all of those things. And of course Michigan takes on this kind of mythical place in the democratic mind because of the fact that it was the site if that upset by Bernie Sanders in the primaries and then that bigger upset by Donald Trump in the fall. So look if you're talking about electability if you're talking about how you relate to white working class voters the fact that Joe Biden has them already for all the flaws in his coalition. The fact that young voters are not excited about him. The fact that Latino voters are not on board the same number you can count on African American voters being solidly behind Joe Biden at this moment and white working class voters again to kind of folks that powered the Obama coalition the Bill Clinton coalition but flipped over to Donald Trump in the last couple of years They kind of like Joe and that is a that is a not insignificant factor if you're the White House if you're donald trump looking at the match up that's now developing or we've got to take a quick break when we come back. Rick is going to tell us. If.
"biden" Discussed on Campaign HQ with David Plouffe
"How can I do better right to now Bernie Sanders? We see understands. He's got to do better. The African American vote to have any chance. Now he's running ads with Barack Obama. you know somebody he thought about primary you know when. I look at at the exit polls But you're studying much more carefully. You know you see is their opportunity for you. Guys to grow your Latino vote share as you look at states like Arizona Florida New York. All of those by the way different You know in terms of the actual population Younger voters. So I guess as well as you did you know as you look at things today like where can you grow and get even stronger? While I think you've just outlined the two major groups where it's clear as a campaign we have to do a better job engaging with people and growing not just for the primary but also as we think about what kind of foundation we need to be laying now in order to go into a general election. Should we win the nomination and I do believe will win the nomination and in a critically younger voters are people that I think the vice president would love to be more engaged with that he feels his campaign needs to figure out a more effective way to go engage with them. We have come a long way with our kind of core constituencies who have allowed us to get to where we are now. But you know the Latino voters younger voters and often you know they are younger. Latino voters are clearly groups we need to go engage with in a much more effective way. Moving forward And you see You've got both Florida and Arizona Obviously Florida has you know. Large Cuban population large Puerto Rican population. Arizona has A Latino population not exactly like California but more like that. So are you guys when you look at those two states in particular? What types of things will you be doing you mentioned outreach? But I'm just curious if that's going to be a place where you overemphasized Joe. Biden's time or you're spending more. I think one of the things that we are definitely going to be looking at will be Advertising that is very specifically into the Latino community we also have some really effective surrogate and people who Have been campaigning with us. At I think we can do a better job of targeting into the communities. I know he'll do salinas who Was Secretary of Labor in the Obama Administration. Two thousand nine has been a stalwart for this campaign We have no other members you know. We have members of Congress. We have people and I think we can do a much more effective job than we've done in using their time while to have them go in campaign into places talk to people about Joe Biden. Why they're supporting. Joe Biden validate that Also to do You know media on our behalf but a lot of it is going to come down to to Joe Biden as well and as we look at the next couple of weeks now obviously big map a lot of delegates a lot of important states but this is a critical part of our thinking. So you've obviously got a bunch of big stage in front of you. You just mentioned you're GonNa try and get as many delegates in those states And you know Bernie. Sanders is said if whoever ends up being the leader employer in delegates even if they don't get a majority should be the nominee so that's probably helpful for you guys because you're probably more likely than not to beat up personnel with no guarantees. But you know you have to plan for every eventuality. So how much time are you guys? It's hard enough doing as well as you can with voters but how much time are you having to spend with? Well we have to. Now Start to talk the super delegates in people to judge in Mike Bloomberg actually had some pledged delegates and they can reallocate like how much of that worker you guys have any. Do as you try and intensify your operation in the states to come. David is as you remember from two thousand eight. You have at this point in the campaign you have to start running a lot of trains on parallel tracks so guess as we continue to battle for delegates in the state you know weekly primaries and and have to go through you know the the primaries and the election we also are starting to Think about the super delegates you know who are You know come into the second round now. Because they've changed the rules to think about. Obviously our own delegates think about the delegates for other people and putting more resources resources into a delegate operation another parallel track. We you know have to start thinking about A convention the Convention rules and The DNC in the DNC rules and bylaws committee and all of those things That could come into play if it's a contested Contested nomination if nobody wins it outright. Or if you know somebody has a plurality but the other person doesn't feel like they should get out vice president. Biden's been clear that he thinks you know he was going to play by the rules and the existing rules and that may mean this goes into the Convention Bernie. Sanders has said that you know the candidate with a plurality should get the nomination obviously he and his staff and Jeff. Weaver in particular played a big role in writing the current rules of the DNC that the DNC's following for the nominating process. So we don't think he can complain about the rules way. He didn't in two thousand sixteen and the question really is going to be known when the dust settles where is everybody and whether or not the candidate who with the plurality does have enough that it feels like the other candidates don't have a chance right so I don't envy you because that's a lot of parallel tracks. But let's add another one so Let's talk about Canada performance so I think it's fair to say the last two debates Joe Biden performed You know more strongly than previous debates may be graded on a curve but was judged to have done better had a really good CNN. Townhall his speech The United South Carolina primary went in last night. I was judged to be tight. What's interesting you know You know I helped prepare Vice President Biden of for debates in in twelve. You've been very involved in that as well. And so what's interesting to me as you look ahead at March Fifteenth? The next debate. Which you know. We'll see what Elizabeth Warren does. But it could be a two person debate and I'm just curious As he has improved his performance I'm not asking you to share strategic secrets. Obviously but how do you think about that because that seems to be If you if you agree that the counter lays out favorably for you and you look at what could be the speed bumps out there You know that could be a speed bump in while he excelled. I think in both of the one on one debates he had against Palin and Ryan And these have all been multi-candidate debates. It's still going to be a couple of hours kind of Mano Mano so Again without you're not gonNA share strategic secrets. But I'm just curious how you guys are thinking about that and you know preparing candidates for debates is something you've done your entire career so I just love you to talk a little bit about that. If you could much fifteenth could be a very interesting debate if it is indeed one on one. I mean if it's if Senator Warren is still a candidate in this race it will be an extremely interesting debate because she is by far the best data in this field right. She's just you know. She's really quick on her feet and very sparked very prepared. Just a very good debater. No if you go back and you look at the one on one Debates between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in two thousand sixteen. I think as we have done. I think you've you feel that this could end up being a good matchup. We've always felt that is the stage shrank. Biden would do better those early debates where it was not ten people on the stage. Nine of them were attacking Biden. Nobody was gonNA look good under those circumstances but you know he and sanders respect each other I think they like each other genuinely but there are. We'll differences between the two of them in terms of how what they think the job of president what they think the job of elected officials and you know as Vice President Biden says results not revolution obviously Senator Sanders believes in revolution above results. And so it could be one of the more interesting debates you see because these two people who respect each other but they really disagree on their approach to government and you know let the voters decide. We believe the voters at the end of the day are looking for somebody who's going to deliver tangible results. That make a difference in their lives whether it's expanding obamacare The next step on Obamacare. Which you know you and I both were involved in so that we get more people covered we bring down prices. We make sure that prescription prices come down. Or where throwing the whole thing out as Senator Sanders has proposed and starting all over again and I think those of us who worked for President Obama when we were getting obamacare passed and then had to implement it. No that's no small thing to throw the whole thing out and start over And there are no guarantees. What comes out at the other end so you know. I think that we as we look at it. We think it's going to be an interesting debate. If it's one on one we think there real differences and we think that it's probably one we're both candidates will seek to communicate both their core messages but also draw real contrast with each other..
"biden" Discussed on Post Reports
"FROM THE NEWSROOM OF WASHINGTON POST ABC Washington Washington. It's known Nakashima with Washington. Mrs Post reports I- Martine powered March fourth today Biden surprising surge the Federal Reserve responds to the Corona virus. And why we're all doing a bad job washing our hands so who ended up winning or quote unquote winning on to produce day. Well there's winning in two sentences. There's winning in the sense of how many delegates were accrued. Philip bump covers politics fix that is to be determined some extent fourteen states each individual congressional district in all those states American Samoa. All of those contests will yield delegates based on how people dating each of those contests and as such the winner of each of those hundred eighty. Plus contest is to be determined but the real one was Joe Biden Super Tuesday for nothing now county. Now let behind. This is your campaign. Jill Biden was the winner on Tuesday simply by virtue of the fact that he won more states but particularly because he won more states when everyone a ago figured his campaign had maybe a couple more days to go. Go the press. The punishment declared a campaign did report. We're much we really saw a surge for Biden in South Carolina. He wants off Carolina in convincing fashion. And then really did. A very good job is came in a very good job of coalescing his past competitors around his candidacy. And next thing you know on Super Tuesday's seizes huge national surges surgeon. All these different states ends up winning not only southern states which is where Bernie Sanders Portland. Two Thousand Sixteen Wensley Minnesota Massachusetts which a week ago again we're saying well looks like Bernie. Sanders can win those states and knock with four NIIMI KLOBUCHAR instead ends up being super juicy me over so we're in. With whom did Biden do particularly well last night? The shortest way to answer that question and say the binded well with black voters in particular in the South. There's nuance there. The nuance is that for example. He did better in Texas. With white voters tended Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders do better with Latino voters in Texas but Biden Scout? A win in Texas Biden also did well in Minnesota Massachusetts which obviously is a different demographic base than North Carolina or Alabama. He showed strength with White Democrats that I think people may not have anticipated that he would do. I think is important. Moving forward in the race sanders did well in states like Colorado. He did well in California too well of course Vermont but there's a really important asterisk that should be applied to sanders. Good showing California and it's going to get better over time I'll point this out. For the simple reason that Bernie Sanders was able to bank a lot of early voting absentee votes when he was doing much better in the race before this big biden surge and a lot of the California vote was already done by a week ago before last weekend before the Biden surge in that all went heavily to Bernie Sanders. We saw exit polling showed. That is the people made up their minds in the last three days by one then by ten fifteen points sanders one Nevada before that by much wider margin and it really just seems like Biden was a lot of people's acceptable. Second Choice that once the field started to thin and people were looking around and saying like well. There's a candidate that I love but there's also the candidate that I could survive seeing as the nominee and for a lot of people that was Biden in a way that I think is not true for Bernie Sanders really. What we're talking about here is there are a lot of Democrats who really like Bernie Sanders message. They like his policy ideas. They liked the idea of Medicare for all. They liked the idea of a college education being affordable or free or paid for by the Government. They like these things have Bernie Sanders has put forward but they really liked the idea of donald trump losing more right and we see that in exit poll after poll. The thing which is driving people you mean motivation to main concern is having donald trump lose after sanders emerged as the frontrunner people started to be like. Okay well what does this actually mean the context of him taking on trump and it certainly is the case. There are arguments to be made that he can beat. Donald Trump in November But polling has shown that it probably is more likely that you'll biden can be trump in in November and that really spurlock people be like okay. Then this is the guy we should put four and a big part of the argument that Sanders had been making about how he can beat. Trump in November. Is this idea of young people on that. He is the candidate that can activate young people people who would not otherwise vote. Tell you with absolute competence. We're going to win the Democratic nomination. We are going to defeat. Trump didn't necessarily support that we go sway off putting together an unprecedented grassroots multi generational multiracial movement. What we've seen over the course of the primaries that doesn't really support that this was his electability pitch you make me nominee and I'm going to bring out these people who don't normally vote and to be fair that worked to some extent for Donald Trump. Donald Trump was the beneficiary in two thousand sixteen. Both of increase turnout from people who don't normally vote who were very motivated by his campaign and from Hillary Clinton both having this perception that she was going to win and not being a particularly She didn't have a lot of enthusiasm. Powering her candidacy. So it made sense that sanders could make that case. The problem is that unlike trump his core basis support is a group. That really doesn't vote very often. There are lot of reasons why I mean we tend to talk about young people not voting and we tend to talk about it almost a pejorative sense but really what it is. It's easier to vote if you don't move all the time because you don't have to register voters you have lived in the same house because you own the house because you know where your polling places. It's easier to vote it. You're not working on election day right. There are all these reasons that young people are disadvantaged in it is harder for them to vote which makes it less likely for them to vote but it also means that if you are a candidate who's relying on those young people you're in trouble because you've got a big hill. You have to climb even before you start trying to cobble together your coalition. I also just want to talk briefly about some of the other candidates so former mayor Mike Bloomberg did not do well. He is now out of the race. Chapin very fast. But I'm wondering about Elizabeth Warren happening a lot of folks trying to turn voting into some located strategy. She was having a rally in Detroit Michigan. Prison did not vote on Tuesday night. And our colleague anyone scheme political reporter she was with Warren and warns camp last night in Detroit. She was there to kind of look down the calender rally rally people for the beyond Super Tuesday on in all ready. Here's my advice. Cast a vote. That will make you proud..
