Mcconnell and new green engage in a whole cadre of republicans gathered as you recall news reporting on this the the i think it was a day before the night before the inauguration of barack obama and this they did something that that most people who is you know studied the history of politics would argue has not happened before they said. They concluded that we are going to block. Everything barack obama tries to do in order to make him a failed precedents right everything regardless and look in the past. You'd have parties you know. Say okay we're going to challenge right president on this and this is where we can negotiate because we want this to happen. Here are a couple of things that we're going to. We're going to challenge the president. That's politics as usual. Right is is is. Here's some we're going to work with him on to try to accomplish. And then here's some things we're just gonna fight this tooth and nail now republican establishment as a whole airy. Say we're going to block everything of what it is.

Is Trump Losing the Midwest?

"Welcome to the be I'm Ari Melber and we are tracking some new sides. Trump campaign is worried about losing the Midwest and thus the entire race to Joe Biden trump spending precious time and resources on defense and state carried by wapping ten points. Last Cycle Iowa Biden is closing that gap and putting the state in a dead heat I was one of the thirty nine states Kobe is surging appointed his greeting donald trump's visit many voters their view this campaign homestretch through the prism of covert. And the criticisms not just coming from Joe Biden or the Resistance Iowa leaders, public health experts, independent writers all noting the trump is coming back now for votes after turning his back on the crisis there take the influential Des Moines Register stating that after jeopardizing our live from far. Trump decides to visit Iowa in person. Or take a look at this. You can't pull up trump's I will rally tonight without seeing this massive billboard pointing the way to yes. A super spreader of. Trump is plowing forward on breaking CDC guidelines lying about the risk of Colbert and the timing of vaccine and repeating two thousand sixteen claims in that state and in other key battleground states that from what we're seeing on the ground and our reporting may not play as well. Right now Democrats, say many measurable signs show that some voters are now onto the con- take a local paper in the state of Pennsylvania noting that trump is just recycling is two thousand, sixteen jobs message, which may work less during the current recession while the president blows up these stimulus talks this week. And his key groups like suburban women turn on Donald Trump that's according to internal polling newly obtained by politico or senior citizen's wavering on trump group that he needs for a winning coalition in several of these states, and since we were last on air just last night, roughly three more million ballots are in leading to nearly fifteen million total ballots cast, which again is vital because it may lock in votes at a time when Donald Trump appears down. So. If you follow all this stuff, you could see the facts trump's record are hurting him. But with the second debate canceled this week, not everyone's falling all the details which is important to keep in mind and that's true. We checked even in some key states that the candidates are visiting even for people who do read the paper. Take Florida which so many politicos obsessed over even when the candidates are on the ground I wanNA show, you hear a fairly typical big city paper, the Orlando Sentinel, the twenty, twenty race it's not the very top story or line. It's not top two on the right. You have to squint there and find it. We put it in red for you below the full in the very lower right hand corner, and that's with the nominee Joe Biden on the ground. Elections are one on preference and turnout. Popularity or preference really helps. But turnout commander more. That's how unpopular person like Donald trump managed to eke out a win in the electoral college in the first place even though remember he never pulled very high. He never pulled past fifty percent and he finished with few voters supporting him in our weird. Constitutional System. By right now, thanks from that evidence. We showed you in what we've been showing you throughout the week that they are up. So they're laser on taking that preference and trying to get the turnout with these growing leads states that trump won in two thousand sixteen big leads in some places above the margin of error and the question is, can the Democrats actually turn all those people out? I want to bring in someone who knows all about this polling Guru Cornell Belcher who worked on both Obama campaigns and wanting to taller the national political director for supermajority, which focuses ongoing political opportunities for women good evening to both of you. Cornell when you see the numbers up. What is the vital part for campaigns in October as voting's begun interning turning preference in turn out into victory? I think are a couple of things are really important. The numbers that are structurally different from twice I wanted to make that plex a lot of people still nervous about twenty sixteen. Structurally this is different than twice a couple of ways. One is different than to sixteen. In that in all these polls are driven showing by actually has a majority. And that is critical I. don't care if you're five, six, seven points. If you're below majority crazy things can happen. But in most of these bound states and certainly the national polling, he's now at a majority in Washington Post polling which I which I pay attention to hear because they they have the third party candidate in there as well. He's still at a majority you remember. Hillary was always ahead in the forced to way choice coastal majority but with the third party candidates who. Turned up the instrumental she was never had a majority of that. She got in nationally law with what what we saw with third-party Cornell just to pause on that point you raise because this matters you're pointing out that sometimes the question the voters get on the phone is different than what they're going to see. If they turn out, they get presented with two and it can change the actual science of what we're getting when they're gonNA go in the ballot box and see three or more explain to us exactly what's different now or what you think that there's more optimism for Biden compared to that. There was a protest right and we understood that that that that the third party candidates were repealing. A inaudible segment of the electorate who who, who was my time voted for for Bronco Rock Obama and nowhere is that more crystal clear than the State Wisconsin, what you saw those young people third party forty we also understand that the Russians have had a big play in and try and direct some of those specials and African American voters toward party candidate candidate candidates here. But even with their and candidates right now structurally, Biden has a majority of which is which is good and it's a stable majority. Are This is unusual in that you can't go back in the last two or three decades seeing where a Democrat has held a double digit lead nationally embattled most these battleground states for not one month that two months, three months. But basically, since June so structurally, this is very different and within the numbers is very different because when you look at right now you know among College White Women, the Horse Races Twenty seven, sixty, nine ad from the Washington. Post poll so know. So, you're talking about structurally this lead in and his support is very different than what we saw. Hillary Clinton Sixteen in two thousand sixteen quite frankly I'm gonna Bama and teen got but this is structurally even different than what we saw for Brock Obama. In Twenty, eight, twenty, twelve in two. Thousand eight I'M GONNA bring. You Anita? But. You're saying it diplomatically are you saying you think the number support a bigger margin for buying than what Obama One? Is Is blasphemed don't Tell Brak. Obama but I. Joe By going to beat it by. Wow don't you know it doesn't work when you say don't tell someone, but you're on live TV. That's really you are I mean again, I just want to underscore this. Again, we're following the the numbers and I've tried to show viewers we're GONNA continue report for you. Particularly, the votes cast the voter registration were at fifteen million votes. The election has begun, which is different than a hypothetical poll six months ago so we have an Obama pollster. Saying tonight, he is seeing the elements of the larger victory for Biden and Obama that you own that. Not Me that's really interesting coming from you cornell. Elliott. said it you're not telling you. There's no things what they're. Not. GonNa, let you forget this. I don't see it. But what I do see is absolutely the margins nationally the margins in these battleground states are undeniable but also an organizer. So first and foremost I'm always going to default to this is a turnout game. It is all about the people get showing up. I am absolutely looking at that almost fifteen million votes cast number and have optimism optimism about what we can expect to see as we get closer to the election cycle and I'm also a woman optimistic about women boating and turning out their friends and their. Families to make sure that binding gets over the finish line because what what is interesting here is Bala failures that you mentioned about trump and your opening are like boater boater spill that and voters are living that every single day. So on top of all them enthusiasm for a Biden Harris, they're taking their lived experience in an ongoing pen to make that didn't have to be this way in an economic recession that again didn't have to be this way but are here but we're all here because of trump and his administration's ineptitude.

Gentlemen suspended time belong to the gentleman from Louisiana Cedric which was that a nerve? Gentlemen from Louisiana so even though that clip was also nowhere to be found on the news of course that Shit went viral, because everyone needed to know where the Fuck Matt Gaetz is mysterious, non white child came from turns out. His name is Nester. He's Cuban. He's nineteen and he was never officially adopted by MAC AIDS for whatever reason. This Cuban kid went to live with the gates family when he was. Was a teenager. The details around his exact age are shady. An unknown as are the details of his exact relationship with Matt Gaetz the twitter detective trolls went to work in record time, unearthing several different tweets gates calls for his helper, a local student and Congressional House page never once booking, calling him his son never once mentioning that he was a even a family member or even familiar with the kid. After these wondrous tweets were revealed as well as several pictures of nest store, looking much older and sexier than someone's fake son, social media wet crazy, accusing gates of being everything from a pedophile to a sex trafficker now. I'm sure some of you are cringing. Saying that's very inappropriate. Well. Regardless of the validity of the accusations Matt Gaetz deserves every heinous and bullying tweet that he is sent, he was famously the sole vote, the only vote against an anti human trafficking bill, and he voted against the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act and this past April. He debuted a bill that he himself wrote. That would require all illegal immigrants to be deported in pandemic. His fake gay son is an immigrant. Matt Gaetz Man. As one of the most important members of our society and of the government. Okay, I actually think okay okay. I actually think he believes he's a Patriot I. Do I do think he thinks I think. He also knows he's a closeted hypocritical bigot. Who if it was in the time of Hitler would be his right hand man, and he should change his last name to Gurgles. If you know Harry, Potter at all he is Worm Tale. He makes Brett Kavanagh look like a puppy. He makes Jim Jordan and Stephen Miller America's literal worst garbage presidential muscleman look like his uncle's from an underground KKK meeting, who wrote him a playbook of which he has learned to a T. Matt? GAETZ is a master at bullying trolling and spin. He is the perfect lucky of the trump administration, and it's shameful that no one has taken this piece of shit down. He is the kind of guy. Guy Who would turn a Dick Sucking Lady of men into a muff diving bull dagger, because he's that repulsive Matt Gaetz is the definition of hypocritical lying yarn twister. Who can take anything you say and spin it until the point that he has now sitting in front of us with his boyfriend, and looking us in the eye, and saying it's his son, he will act outraged at your very questioning of his beloved son of color, whom he loves more than life, and he knows better than anyone what it is to care for a young man who's also an immigrant and non white male in our society Matt. Gaetz as a hero. How dare you, Sir now in all honesty? I enjoy saying he's in the closet. Okay, because we all know, he's hiding something major and something that would destroy his credibility in the world of the KKK of which he lives and subsists on their ges. He's gay or merely a pedophile I'm not entirely sure what I do know is that kidney store is not his son. He never actually adopted him. Li. Li I do know that Matt. Gaetz hides behind his patriotic nationalism to defend his racism, and is desperate need to be accepted by other white men I. Do know that Matt Gaetz is fighting tooth and nail four Donald Trump and is blocking legislation when it comes to police, brutality and justice reform because he thinks it goes too far, and someone needs to speak for the police officers, and the good men and women who wear the uniform I do know that gates is a die-hard conservative, because like every conservative. He's desperately clinging to his white privilege and. And can't stand that. It's being stripped away from him I. Do know that, Matt. GAETZ would have a black man arrested to never see the light of day for drunk driving and assault. Well Matt Gaetz has received a Dui more than once, and still a United States Congressman I. Do know that Matt Gaetz face. Parkland parents and told them what we need in order to solve gun. Violence is a border wall. That's video. Look it up. I. Do know that Matt Gaetz will do anything to pander trump I. do know as a new lawyer WanNa Matt. Matt Gaetz his big cases to file a debt collection suit against an elderly woman who couldn't pay her home, care firm and guess who that was owned by fucking Matt Gaetz, as Shitty Nazi Dad I do know that even though he had made twenty nine thousand dollars salary as a lawyer, he somehow spent one hundred thousand dollars of his own money into his own campaign for Senate and spent more and got more money donated to him because of stupid fucking father I. Do know that the second. He got into the Tallahassee legislature. He propose bills that. That sped up. Executions imposed mandatory fifty year sentences for some rape cases ban abortion coverage in healthcare provided by Obamacare and I do know that gates is a mega troll on social media and uses twitter to do such things as quote. I just saw a woman at Publix, access or food stamps and yet her back was covered in tattoos. Re tweet if you want entitlement reform. I do know that Kid Nestor is hiding. Something that make gates does not want us to find out about I do know. That Matt Gaetz has no shame integrity our. Of what it is that anyone needs in Congress? Except for whoever's in power, and who can pander to, and it goes on and on and on and on, and we don't have enough time till this everything. Matt Gaetz his done to access your gag reflex Matt Gaetz Stanford for nothing. Except his own promotion, he comes from a Republican political family. His father was a congressman, and clearly as a chip on his shoulder that he can't apparently run a plantation and another thing. I'm not calling him. Him Gays and insult I'm saying he's closeted because he's spineless, taught who can't handle his insecurity and fear and daddy issues and loss of white male privilege, and he's just one of those guys who wants to follow a dictator, and feels empowered and sexy when he dominates spreads, Hitler's desires by saying is just doing his job and he's a patriot. He's a dangerous giant racist self, hating gay rat, who is carrying disease onto all of us, and he must be rooted out and fucking destroyed. Did you do therapy. I sure did yup. I sure did and you know I dread it now, and I, don't want to kick and scream all the way there at this point, but it did make me feel better, and it really is worth sticking with and committing to, and if nothing else, I'll tell you this.

"Is when we did some quality research after the Super Bowl. Ad That trump did about. Before right. They're serious about this. They didn't a frigging super bowl. Ad About grains US right. We went in with doing focus groups and areas where where Dan's or the trump campaign was beginning to set up storefront offices. They made a big splash about how they were been light, setting up store for offices and communities. And I say that say. We have a structural problem in that I cannot tell you how often. Do Focus groups with younger voters period, and but particularly young voters of color where. They just are not. Tuning into or tapping into the sources of information that we want them to. We are not reaching down with the information so much of the conversation. That's happening in Washington is loss on them?

They don't know and they're startled by some of. and I say that say. We have a structural problem in that. They are not tapping into our conventional platforms vehicles for political information I think Democrats and progressives have to do a better job of going where these younger Reuters R., and trying to tap into them from from where their lifestyle values standpoint tap into where they are and not rely on them coming to us for the political information so I. Think structurally we have to do a better job of penetrating where young lawyers are are getting their information or even going to for.

"Look at the protests in DC in New York. And Minneapolis, it's diverse crowd and it. Looks like the the Obama core. Let the base of the Obama cohurt that helped him get get into office. This young diverse group of Americans can we? Focus that energy and that protest to organizing around political change make them understand that marching is just one tool in the toolbox to bringing bringing about change. You know we can connect the dots there. I think we can pull back together that that Obama Coke coalition and expanded now that said I want I want to end with this. This piece to that to that long contextual sat out is. The majority as bad as as as we think Donald Trump is as terrible as he's dealt with the pandemic. Divisive as he is and continues to be. Majority of white voters in this country, still going to vote for him. And I want you to let that sink in. The shorty. A white borders in this country are going to vote for Donald Trump. So it is imperative that we. That on the side we build. A broad and diverse coalition and we don't ignore the the hopes and aspirations, of these of a minority of typically african-americans specifically African American men's clothes you look at the drive is or the most dramatic drop offs in turnout from twenty. Twelve to twenty sixteen. It happened among African American men, and from a quality standpoint. where I do, focus groups in. We look at African. American men they are so. They're so Sonoko brightly so Baden, the local process, and about what politics has has given or not given them and how they keep hearing saying. Shit over and over and over again from Democrats, but but they don't seem to follow through. We've got change. That's a just such a powerful point and I know that early last month you. Were I read an article where you were were warning. Folks that know if trump can move a small percentage of black voters and battle ground states it's going to have an outsized impact on the election and you know. Then Cincinnati been reflecting in the last few days. Has that change given? What's going on, but less than an hour ago? Trump penned a tweet. In which he bragged about all of the great things that he's done for the black community, so in spite of all. In spite of everything that's happening. It's still going to be very much focus of his campaign to move that small percentage of black voters who are disillusioned with everything that that's been going on. Let me. I will say this is that. We have. Just as much of a structural problem as we have a messaging problem. And what I mean by.

"What Matt's you do California but I tell you that's a lot of money. I'll tell you what we got a New York number one and number two. We're I'm going to be honest with you guys this. This is the part of the debate where I think. Democrats really needs to get a whole lot better. No one at home can keep up with all of these numbers forty billion seven percent seventy percent over ten years thirty trillion three trillion when you compound. It's too complicated right. Almost most made me Miss Donald Trump because when he doesn't he just comes off as like folks we're GonNa do numbers bass numbers bigger numbers. I never wanted home is like yeah. Numbers numbers got to find a middle ground so that was healthcare then came immigration and just like last night's the major question facing Democrats was how would they deal with the crisis at the border most of them agreeing again that they would try and find a more humane way to treat asylum seekers and illegal emigrants but when they brought up President Obama's record of mass deportations Joe Biden probably wished that he could have been deported out of this debate vice president by I.. I didn't hear your response. When the issue came up all those deportations you're vice president United States. I didn't hear whether you tried to stop them or not. Using your power your influence in the White House president it came along and he's the guy that came up with the idea first time ever dealing with the dreamers. He put that in the law. I don't hear an answer from the vice president. I'm confused infused Mr Vice President. You won't be present United States. You need to be able to answer the tough questions. I guarantee you. If you're debating donald trump. He's not gonNA. Let you off the hook. I was vice president. I am not the president. I keep my recommendation in private unlike you I expect you would go ahead and say whatever was said privately minimum. That's not what I do. Oh hold up Joe Biden. Just Call Bill de Blasio a little less niche. That's what he said right yeah and realized realized. Biden was so true to the streets like Mr Mayor Unlike you. I protect my neck because these bitches ain't loyal. That's what I do so this is what the debate guard interesting right bill de Blasios sucker punches biden out of nowhere asking him why he let Obama deport so many people and just when Biden is trying to battle the giants of New York Corey Book Jumps in with the Schiff. I president you can't have it both ways. You Invoke President Obama more than anybody in this campaign you can't do when it's convenient and then when it's not yeah cory booker makes a good point. Joe Biden's really good at using Obama when it'll help us resume but then when it comes to something that Obama wasn't really the great all of a sudden Biden's like Obama Obama is that the Irish Guy Patio Obama's POB and then Obama Line is just the beginning right because after that corey went on full on attack mode Senator Booker called your new criminal justice reform plan quote and and inadequate solution to what is a raging crisis in our country unquote why Senator Booker wrong..

"And tonight. We're coming to you live. That's why we are completely wheatley live. Don't believe me look at the screen behind me. It's night out how you see now. The second night of the Democratic debates just ended and the two nights. This was the debate. Everybody was waiting for you know if last night was a small lower back tattoo tonight was Mike Tyson's face because coming into tonight we all knew it was about base stage is set for a second heated showdown. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris facing off just hours from now hi six rematch Joe Biden and Kamala Harris facing off again tonight after blistering attack in the first debate biden vowing he won't be so polite this time Joe Biden telling donors. It's no more Mister Nice Guy. I was probably overly polite in the way I didn't respond yes. According to Biden the last time he didn't do well was was because he was overly polite. which is a convenient? Excuse for getting your ass handed to you. I I use that same excuse to whenever I lost the fight in high school the only reason he was able to shove Kevin Gallagher is because Emma gentlemen so in the build up tonight's debate. The main story was commonly Harris versus Joe Biden but because cory booker has also been going off the Biden for the past couple of weeks. Tonight's debate was set up for fireworks especially once we found out where everyone would be standing on that stage. Biden will find himself flanked by booker and Harris Biden standing in between two candidates who have targeted him. BOST- Cory Booker Comma Harris and racial inequality could be a very big discussion. Joe Biden is in uncomfortable sandwich on that stage. He's got on either side of him. Kamala Harris and Cory Booker Yeah Joe Biden. This was an unlucky drama and Corey book on the one side Comal on the other side and he's in the middle. It's like the wolves most racially charged. Oreo Joe Biden got on the stage and just instinctively try to his car doors. It was like oh no attacks and and if you tune into the debates hoping to see conflicts. It didn't take long for you to get your wish vice president Biden's campaign calls. Your plan quote a habit but every witch way approach well. They're probably confused because they've not read it. There will be a public plan under my plan for Medicare and a private plan under my plan for Medicare. Have you noticed there's no talk about.

"Another bad new poll from donald trump new poll shows joe biden would they ten point leaned over over donald trump the new washington post nbc poll shows that among registered voters joe biden gets fifty three percent of donald trump's forty three percent the rest of the top tier candidates are tied earn statistical tie with donald trump bernie sanders gets forty nine donald trump's forty eight comal harris gets forty eight donald trump's forty six elizabeth warren gets forty eight and on trump's forty eight people to judge gets forty seven to donald trump's forty seven drivers gushing now cornell belcher democratic pollster an msnbc political analyst and jennifer rubin and opinion writer at the washington post and msnbc contributor and let me go to the pollster about the new poll cornell you got it incumbent president's he's running a ten points behind these front runner for the democratic nomination and another a four five candidates are running tied with incoming president yeah i i i don't put a lot of in the horse race number right now i look at what's underneath horse racing if you go back in twenty twelve at this time i mean obama wasn't running away with the with the with the with the race in a horse race i there but underneath those numbers there is some interesting things where where the where the president certainly doesn't have a he's underwater his approval round taxes which is interesting for republican he's underwater heavily around healthcare so his underwear around a lot of pocketbook issues as well immigration and foreign policy so overall i mean he he's being held down by people just disapproving of his job it what i find interesting in that poll numbers that you know the president's hovers around forty forty seven percent right an he's a guy who won will lessen a plurality of electric timmy is really not even about what donald trump's number is 'cause he's gonna get his forty seven or forty eight forty six forty seven percent it is ten democrats did that fifty one fifty two percent and hold that together the way obama did in twenty twelve by the way we fell to do in in in twenty sixteen so does that can't can't hear that win again will lessen a plurality about kenny win again and say florida with the same percentage that that romney lost within twenty twelve jennifer rubin a if donald trump is reelected he will be the only reelect the president's in history who never once tried to speak to voters who didn't already vote for that is true and it seems to me that he is bad at math in addition to being bad at history as you pointed out earlier in the show he's bad at math because when you don't have a majority and you narrow narrow narrow your appeal you're number get smaller end soon you don't have enough people to go around no matter how screwed we are electoral college is there simply aren't enough votes now i know what's interesting about that poll is he's virtually tied with some kind of who twenty thirty percent of the democrats electric doesn't know enough about to offer an opinion so these people this is sort of oprah anybody with the she after their name kind of a poll in my book on my sense is that it matters very much to the democrats tough but that the democrats will unite around anyone who is nominated on end then a i think you're gonna see that number bounce back up again to wear sort of biden is 'em i don't think the democrats can sit back and relax lax i don't think they can get a core can it i think they get someone who is as compelling as possible because donald trump certainly compels his his excuse me viewers voters but i do think that you know if you had team right now there's no question i think the team a donald trump's approval and disapproval in this poll is pretty standard according to a mostly a pulling up we've seen on that but up on his on his immigration nation a he is getting a even worse disapproval rating he's getting a fifty seven percent disapproval forty seven percent approve an let's listen like comal harris who a a maybe that campaign has been redone this paul because they're colorful stumping straight into this issue
