"Case CBS News Time is 9 20. The oil industry is one of many taking AH, hard hit because of the Corona virus pandemic, Exxon Mobil announced today It will be cutting 1900 jobs in the U. S. With Chevron announcing it will cut about a quarter of the jobs that noble energy that's about 600 positions to learn more. He's CBS News anchors Jeff Bell and Patty Rising earlier spoke with Severin Borenstein, faculty director of the Energy Institute, a UC Berkeley's Haas School of business and a member of the California Independent System Operator Board of Governors, Severin in terms of connecting all the dots, can we assume that the corner virus impact is largely about diminished travel? Yeah, Most of the oil demand in the United States is travel, although oil is used for generating electricity and even heating in large parts of the world, and it's the world the man that's driving this. So it's in large part transportation, because that's what we've had to cut back on most of the early since the pandemic has begun. How much of this is pandemic related and how much of it could be perhaps a moving away into cleaner fuels? I mean what was the situation among those companies before the pandemic? They were doing fine before the pandemic. This is all the pandemic prices were almost double where they are right now, and the companies were making money. The U. S production was steadily climbing due to hydraulic fracturing, and I would say the oil industry was pretty optimistic. The beginning of March, Even maybe, in February, way start to see some downturn as the other parts of the world were hit. But, uh then we saw the real crash in March, a zit hit the United States. And if you follow what's been going on with oil prices, even in the last few weeks as the growth of the pandemic as the surge has expanded across Europe and into the United States now We've seen oil prices come down further, So it's pretty clear that unlike those economic reports we saw yesterday about third quarter GDP which are backward looking This is much more of a forward looking indicator. This is an indicator based on what people think is going to happen to the demand for oil based on the surge in the virus. Joe Biden certainly gruesome attention when he made a reference to transitioning away from the oil industry. Has that settled out a bit. I mean, there's been a little back pedaling, the industry seemed to take it in stride to a certain degree. Well, the industry's taking and stride. Nobody in the industry thinks that we are going to next year. Stop using oil. Uh and I think most people in industry realized there is going to ultimately be a push. To reduce oil use. It's going to come at a faster speed under Biden than if Trump's reelected, But At worldwide We are going to see more and more movement away from oil, and that's going to make it less and less profitable, and it's important to recognize it's going to make it, uh, less profitable in the United States, particularly because Oil produced in the United States is some of the highest cost production in the world. That was Severin Borenstein, faculty director at the Energy Institute at U. C. Berkeley's Haas School of Business. K. C. B s news time is 9 24. Time now for a check of your money on KCBS.

And what I talked about is what you just talked about because right, that dinner Ryan Sandberg explained how he prepared for every regular season game. So he didn't just play catch. He would not go out to take infield practice until he had thrown forty walls, ten in a row at four designated spots on the person who was catching the ball. Two parts of his chest and two parts beneath, and he had hit ten row and then he would go to the next target ten and row. Next target forty before we would even take infield practice, then he would take infield practice always in his game uniform, never any sort of blouse e jersey sort of thing.

One of the things that's interesting to me about this Trump phenomenon is whether he's changing the Republican party and whether he brings something more to the table interr- in in terms of intensity commitment and a sense that he is proto politics. He's bigger than politics culture. He's image. He is a sense of American really or American ascendancy are- ascendancy things that are deeper and more psychological than strictly partisanship. See, these are exactly the kind of questions that we pollsters try to tackle even more than who's going to win. Right. And they're to me, they're the most interesting ones because you're watching changing country. You're watching change in the way people think and how they think about. President. So how do I get out that one of the things we've done of late is ask people, do you think Donald Trump is a typical Republican or not? And his base says, no, and they say they like it..

"From CBS news. This is the takeout with major Garrett. That's me major Garrett. That's the voice of Steven Portnoy my good friend of CBS. Thank you for those in between her Steven Portnoy with where did you get this number posters guide to making sense of the world authored by Anthony Salvato. He has special guest. He's also CBS news, elections and serve as director. So what are the things that is true about our current president? Forty fifth, President Trump is he has a love hate relationship with the media, and you probably say, major, we talk about he only just hates on, you guys know wrong. He loves us. He is obsessed with us. He is endlessly fascinated about what the media says about him and how it portrays him. Fascinated, he consumes more electron media about his presidency and heat Donald Trump than any president in American history bar none. So he loves on and then hates on the media. He also has a kind of interesting relationship to polling data. Now, if you guys when some fun out in the audience, go do Google images, things of Trump holding a poll numbers during the campaign. You also still pictures of him actually reading off pieces of paper, which he scrawled his polling data that makes him look like a colossus, which he actually turned out to be well. I was with him, President Trump in Tampa. Earlier this week. We have to sound bites. I wanna play for you one and then the other. He said, the one thing I then ten seconds later. He said the second thing Ardant du the one and then the second thing, no pulse effect. Just like everything else. They just came out with the poll. Did. You hear the most popular person in the history of the Republican party is Trump. Can you believe? So I said. Does that include on a stable Lincoln? You know he was pretty good. Okay. First of all, Anthony, some aren't joke. Clarify for audience. Was there public polling during the Lincoln presidency? No, there you go. Thank you for that. Second of all poles fake unless they show Donald Trump to be the most popular Republican ever. Is he the most popular Republican ever? Well, if you look back to CBS news poll and you can go back to Reagan, you can go back to Ford. His numbers are very high among Republicans there. There's no question about that. He has, and it has been remarkably steady and not just high. You have to use that word steady through through thick and thin and controversy. You know, cetera Republicans have supported this president and that data. Tell you anything to explain that resiliency, it really speaks to the partisanship of the era, and we've seen this from pollsters perspective both in presidential approval, which Trump's overall numbers have been as steady as anyone we've measure more stay than anyone we've measured haven't fluctuated overall. And in this era, we get partisans saying, even things that you would think our objective like, how's the economy. How are you doing with your your personal finances? Some of that moves based on whether your party is in the White House, which for a moment you might take a step back and go, well, that's not people answering the question honestly. And I argue, yeah, but what they're doing is they're building their optimism into an evaluation of something that they don't necessarily know how to assess right. If I ask you, how's the economy? Right? What should you look you look at the stock market? Should you look at the unemployment numbers? You have those figures in your head, right? So so we as pollsters have to think about how people are thinking and coming up with this and more and more one of the shortcuts that we see them using is partisanship if my party's running things. Okay. Yeah, I guess things are pretty good. We've seen those numbers polarize ally..

"We, I'm, I'm I hold the honor of holding a place doing the decision desk. People who. Came before me who developed a lot of these technologies. You know, I just I stand in their shadow because you know the the, the war Mathov skis and Murray elements of the world. What what we have done. We do with the decision desk as we call the races and we project CBS news now projects so and so will win the state of Wisconsin. But I, you know, I told a little bit of the story in in that first chapter of when I was I watching this and seeing the decision desk and seeing the watching election nights. You know, it looked to me like a sports event. We we over us. I think the horse race analogy, it's inept because what happens whether you're on election night or for that matter, frankly, when you're doing a pole. You're not really projecting will happen. You're watching something unfold. You're watching data reveal itself. You're watching. In this case, it's the votes of a state which are already in the Bank aren't happen already. They're already cast. The polls have closed their sitting in a box somewhere waiting for someone to feed them into a hopper or start to get tally. And so as that data starts, it's it's, it's the state's votes revealing itself to you. And what we're trying to do is see enough of that puzzle to tell you what has happened with the voters, have decided based on whether or not enough places from all over that state have reported and had show, and this is important thing and show a pattern. There's never a bellwether place. There's never one single place as much as mayor somebody else point. Oh, spun moms. I'll watch this. Okay, that that's only place, no way. Never the only play. It's never the only place in the way to see all of this sort of the way pollsters think is what happens. I'm convinced when I see something again and again, and again, that's when you start to see those patterns. That's when you start to know something real is going on in the minute thirty. We have left before I have to go to break on election night, which bled obviously into the early morning hours. There was a consternation among some Trump loyalists that networks were holding back that they weren't calling places that they believed internally could have and should have been called address that. Oh, no, no, no, no. We, we late in the night were wrestling with in particular in a couple of key cities, Philadelphia in Milwaukee. And I described some of this in that in that first chapter and earlier in the night in Ohio where it was the democratic turn out was not as high as we had expected it to be. And we. We put a computation of the system. What we expect turn out to be in all the counties and all the play in all the places and speaking of patterns we'd start to see. Well, democratic turn a little lower in some of the early states in North Carolina in some key places. Now, wait a sec nounce a little or can be that low in Milwaukee will. Yeah, way to. Yeah, it really is, but it took a lot of precincts to come in a lot of counties to come in before. We could really see that pattern because it was surprising. It was oppressing this was this was turn out that that was lower than what we had seen for Democrats we'd seen for Barack Obama. Eventually that told the story, right? It told the fact that Democrats standing some key precincts and in some lesser populated areas, the Republican meeting Trump turnout was higher. It was, you know, places where he was doing very well against seeing this pattern. It was way that out a little higher than we expected that turn us a little higher than expected. And one of the things was, you know, you could see these weren't the largest counties, but for Clinton it was like death. A thousand paper cuts because it was he was adding a little margin here in a little margin there. And then we start finally start to see that pattern, then it's okay, we got it. We can call her voice of Anthony onto. I major Garrett backgammon..

"She seeing these crowds, and I'm seeing in the data enthusiasm on the Trump side and we have a hard time quantifying that pollsters, but I'm also seeing something certain lack of enthusiasm among Democrats, which by the way manifested itself on election day. And so you know. You know, we're starting talk about this and we're not saying will, right when right saying will look, these are possibilities and look the larger theme. So we had this conversation a couple of days before the election. And I like to think that viewers of and listeners to CBS news were not as apprised by Trump then than others because we did go through the scenarios. And you know there was a group. You mentioned the Republicans a group. We talked about the rely call them reluctant Republicans, and we always said, look, you know, there's, there's certain part of the party isn't quite yet ready to embrace this. You know, at the time controversial nominee. But if they come home, he's going, you catch up, right and see, this is the thing about about polling you wanna look at it the way a campaign would or if you were running a market research from not just who's my customer now, we know that who could be my customer could move who could change that to me is interesting. And that's the dynamic. Because you know, look, this is democracy. It's an argument, can't argument. We could predict everybody. We wouldn't have camping who wouldn't have camping. And to that point, I mentioned it in my book. I didn't predict it. I never said he was going to win, but I folks who've longtime listen to this show. No, the no. The name art art and far. He's my producer. We were on the road together for sixteen months. Art has countered this up more than one hundred Trump Centric events, at least seventy five Trump rallies. We attended together. And we saw this, and the great question I always had was, will these people show up and more importantly, will their minds be made up in an affirmative way for Donald Trump in the clothes? And that's exactly what happened. This is tough. It would happen and he won extraordinary percentage of late deciders. People told us that they made up their minds and the closing days of the campaign. And we saw that in Wisconsin and we saw that in Michigan and that's another. It's another great lesson going forward. You know, you take you learn from things and you say, well, you know, anybody looks looks at a campaign should always be thinking. What could shift doesn't mean most voters? Jim, I most waters don't, but what could shift and what could be a dynamic here. And the other thing too is that that race had a unique. And I mean that unique amount of uncertainty because both candidates were disliked dislike, and you talk in the book and I love it because I think. There is a legitimate conversation going on in our country about how we do what we do in the in the news business. How do we do what we do, how can we judge what you do, how can we feel more comfortable with the processes that you go through and the early part of the book you talk about what a decision desk is, how does it do its work? How it evolved over the decades, a decision desk is an enormously important vessel through which the country I learnt about who's one what, and how talk to our CBS n. viewers. This is like a CBS and smorgasbord by the way. Maitre Garrett ninth and he saw Enthoven you see, it's all the time. It's like, double your pleasure. Double your fun.

"One variable here is the high, the comparatively high number of party in power retirements, yes. On the house side, which creates a different dynamic and open seat is different than an incumbent seeking re-election right. When you look, we will go back to history for here for a little bit. When you look at recent history when a seat vacates, the opposing party tends to gain a higher percentage than they formally got there is an incumbent advantage. Maybe it's four to seven points depending on the kind of district, but is that enough in win? So many of these districts are already lopsided. In many cases, it's not. And for those in the audience who may be saying themselves, who will wait a minute, you're having a pollster telling me with some predictive value about twenty eighteen would about twenty sixteen. We have what we call an industry a montage for you that will take Anthony down that well to that place. That is not exactly the happiest place. Many people around the world were taken by surprise by Trump's presidential win in large part because almost every major poli forecast favorite. Hillary Clinton to win pasters nationwide are trying to figure out a polling disaster. So how did the polls lead us. Astray wrong for a couple of reasons. And when I say the polls, let's be very clear. These are mostly the public polls. Holsters are asking if they need to rethink their methods for serving the public religious keyword search there astray disaster wrong, rethink chump on that Anthony salve onto a great question. And here's the first part of the answer. A poll is not a forecast. They are different things in many ways. And I argue this in the book, the poll is more useful than forecast. Think about this. How many times do you need to know in advance who's going to win an election? Right. We always hear hear the celebrities say they're going to leave the country if so, and so wins. Okay. They may need a forecast, right? They got to know. Maybe you have a wager on it, a sizeable wager, okay, you need to forecast, but for most people, what we need to do sounds are stand things, isn't that what we really want to know? We wanna know who are these people that disagree with us? What? Why do they think the way they did? We suspect that it's not just because they don't know much or they're just too partisan right. We want to know the answers to what's around who these people are, what they think, and that is what a poll tries to do. That's what a news pollster in particular is trying to do. You should judge us on whether we explain the world to you, not just whether we predicted, and I will say 2016 brings with it some wonderful lessons. Okay.
