"Joe Biden hold an eleven percentage point lead over president trump nationally according to a new Wall Street Journal NBC News Poll. He has a fifty three percent to forty two percent edge. The poll was taken after the president's in one thousand, nine hospitalization the televised debate, as well as judge Amy Barrett's nomination to the Supreme Court for a closer look at the numbers and the remaining days of the campaign were joined by national politics reporter Elisa Collins Hi, Elisa Hi there. So let's first talk about the poll itself. A double digit lead for Biden is it to be taken at face value what what does this lead show? Well, this lead shows that Biden is ahead by Donald trump by a lot. And he has been for a long time. The cause for concern for the president here is that in the last poll we took, which was immediately after the debate Biden's lead actually expanded to fourteen percentage point, which was the weakest showing the president had had yet. The president has gained back a bit. Now he is eleven points behind Biden, but that is still larger than he was in September. So following tumultuous few weeks for the President, he got krona virus, he was hospitalized. He had a debate performance that was criticized by Democrats and Republicans he's had a hard time coming back to even where he was in September even if he's showed a little bit of improvement over immediately following the debate.

"Expensive time with us on this Thursday after more than a month of Washington operating at a near standstill Democrats Republicans and the White House are already to notch some political wins. But to do that they'll have to work together. Elisa Collins, congressional reporter at USA today. Ask some lawmakers if they thought that was possible Elisa, what did they say? Well, it's pasta. I think is the key word here, but not on a broad array of things there's just a few issues where there really is a chance and those issues I would say the main to our prescription drugs lowering the cost of healthcare and the other one is infrastructure investment. There is a third that Democrats are hoping to basically get the president involved in an thinking the party might come along. And that it would be ethics reform. Basically, he ran on drain the swamp and Democrats are hoping that the bay still want that and they may be able to make some. Changes why the money and politics that sort of thing, but they are less optimistic about that one store with prescription drugs. What could unfold there because that's a slippery one. Yeah. So that is one I think there is very broad agreement that the cost of prescription drugs is too high and the president has really made this an issue. He cares. A lot about I talked to Vermont democrat Peter Welch who is on a couple of the committees that look at prescription drugs. He's also on that affordable prescription drug task force. He's a co chair. And so he's met with the president on this issue. He said Trump was really enthusiastic energetic about it. Even said, we're getting murdered by drug companies. So while optimistic about out east where the president says he wants to be on the issue. But so far he said what the administration has done has been pretty modest. It sounds lovely on everybody would like less expensive drugs, but the fear. I guess I have is that. Pharmaceutical companies say, well, if you're gonna Kappa set, you know, two or three percent increases year on prices. We're not going to be able to research and develop as much or offer as many coupons. I don't know like. Political campaign. Yeah. I mean, and that I think is a day problem. And so if something were to move on prescription drugs, imagine, it would be narrow it would not be an overhaul of the whole system because both Democrats and Republicans do have pharmaceutical companies in their districts in their states. You know, they donate to their campaigns. No, one wants to be the person say, you know, having to respond to companies saying we just can't fix this disease because we can't research it. So I think there are narrow bills. But exactly right. That is a big concern. And that's why I don't imagine. We will see a giant overhaul of the system, we're speaking. With Elisa Collins USA today, congressional correspondent, she certainly piece entitled President Trump says he wants bipartisanship, but is it possible are talking about infrastructure too. Because that I feel like we've been hearing about that for a couple of years in if nothing's happened at this point what what what brings optimism for twenty nineteen. Line as was prescription drugs, actually, bipartisan whole chamber stand up. But again, it's it's once you get to the details there is really broad consensus that the bridges and highways in this country needs to be fixed and people understand that it's very expensive to do that. But we're the real breakdown is is House Republicans tend to look for private investment Democrats thinks that the government should be paying for it. There's talk about a gas tax. But there are lawmakers in both parties who oppose that the president has called in last year's state of the union for one point five trillion dollar infrastructure Bill, but basically, you know, Democrats were very excited about that. But then when it came down to the details, first of all they were many and the ones that there were definitely aren't him some critics because it would basically fun this program through either the private sector. Or taking funding from local governments that had been set aside for other projects that's a nonstarter for democrat. It's really interesting because the transportation committee, another one of those committees that is very bipartisan. They agree that something needs to be done. This is something the president campaigned on in twenty sixteen. It's stressed how to pay for it. Elisa Elisa Collins, congressional reporter at USA today..

"It's the last thing he does. The retiring house speaker is hitting the trail for an aggressive final stretch of campaigning in an attempt to help more than two dozen vulnerable. Republicans and save the house before he retires USA today. Congressional. Reporter Elisa Collins got the scoop Elisa what do we know has a really aggressive? Final sprint. He's like you said going to twelve state. He's going to campaign for more than twenty five candidates. A lot of them are incumbents who currently serve with him. A handful are on incoming areas hoping their incoming Republican candidates specifically like the person trying to take his seat because he's retiring would he keep this kind of schedule normally if he were seeking reelection himself. Well, he always have a pretty aggressive schedule because he has to raise of money for the party. He's raised over seventy million dollars for the party with. A lot of that going to keep these candidates safer attempt to keep these candidates eight because he certainly doesn't need it. He's not running again. So he does keep an aggressive schedule. But it is new for him to be hammering sort of just basically like a state a day multiple districts and just go kind of on his final sprint. But we remember she's retiring, and it would really help his legacy. The Republicans are able to keep the majority when he leaves. She's I so I thought it was interesting to that. He'll be campaigning at least for a couple of house freedom caucus members. And as you point out, they have sometimes been a thorn in his side. Yeah. I thought this is really interesting as well. I've spent the last couple of years covering the freedom caucus and. Either sort of conservative far rate members of his party who will threaten or in some cases, have actually sunk legislation that is a Republican priority because they did not think it was conservative enough Republicans need two hundred eighteen votes in order to pass anything and they can do that right now on their own, but they need buy in from the same caucus because there's about three dozen of that. So they have power when they sort of voting block and they've done that they threatened to do that. And so they have sort of forced Ryan and his leadership teams hand a lot of cases. So I was just surprised to find out that he is on the trail for three of them. One of them being congressman Dave brat, who is sort of one of the leaders of the freedom caucus is not just a rank and file number. But he's one of the people making these decisions on what thinking what they'll vote for. But he's all three of them are. Facing really competitive races. We're speaking with Elisa Collins, congressional reporter at USA today. She's written a piece about how outgoing house speaker Paul Ryan is hitting the campaign trail to help other GOP candidates that what kind of messaging will he have does does it change from candidate to candidate? So it will from candidate to candidate what he'll do will change from candidate to candidate in some places that might be like a business tour, or, you know, a rally in some places it might just be a closed door fundraiser, really depend on the candidate. But his messaging basically is like you're better off under Republican leadership. It's the economy they're talking about opioid legislation. Which is of course, it actually very bipartisan push and absolutely groundbreaking that the house and Senate were able to push it a giant opioids package that was signed into under President Trump that Republicans. There's a lot of their names on days tons and tons of tiny little bells awkward together. So a lot of vulnerable Republicans have their names on those bills. So he'll be campaigning on all of that. But the message basically being you're better off under Republican leadership and Democrats they say are going further and further and how will he use President Trump if at all? Well, I imagine it'll vary by the district. But remember he's going into the really vulnerable districts, some of them even being counted out already by Republican strategists who said, you know, we'll probably won't win this one. Let's move our money. Elsewhere ranch team is that none of them are counted out, but these are districts worthy democrat is making a big strong place. It's probably not super helpful. And some of these districts to align yourself really closely with the president in LeicesteR doing an event with just the Republican base. But Ryan sort of more of a moderating force he hobby. The vice presidential candidate with Mitt Romney. And so he comes in. He doesn't illicit really strong feelings either side that people might not like his agenda. He's not as controversial as President Trump. So seems that they're hoping he'll go in and kind of be able to soften the Republican party. Imagine actually, stay on message about the economy, and that sort of thing. He's Elisa Elisa Collins USA today, congressional reporter it's twenty minutes in front of the hour on This.

"Republicans are planning a careful choreography for reviewing the results of the FBI's background probe into judge cavenaugh that includes restricting its distribution and inviting senators to a secure meeting room in the capital to review the report. So says Elisa Collins congressional reporter at USA today. She's with us from Capitol Hill Elisa what will happen. This memorandum from two thousand nine that's a bipartisan memorandum that lays out how these things can be processed. And it's basically a lot of secrecy. It's it goes to the White House. The White House gives it to the Senate Judiciary committee who take it into a room, and they have a safe in someone watching it. There's just one copy and senators can request to be briefed on it. It's not exactly clear if it'll be that once it's here, if they'll be taking it to senators, or if it will be in a secure location at the capitol senators can come look at it. It's looking more likely it'll be at a secure location. But the main point of this is that just senators and nine other staff members of cleared can look at Americans who want to see this FBI report. Well, basically, you're out of luck at this moment. Okay. I get the sense that secret as it's going to be somebody's going to leak stuff. Right. I I get that. Helped. We are concerned. Actually, it's interesting that majority leader Mitch McConnell on the judiciary committee has had booked. We're following random doing this by the bucks. But both Republicans and Democrats rank and file members have said, well, if we can't show them, the actual files from the FBI at least do a summary and really stack because this is a special circumstance and a lot of Republicans have said exactly what you just said. I am concerned about selective leaking. So if it's forced to remain private. Then people might be part of it, or what they view as cracked. And I'm sure that both sides are concerned about selective leaking. And so that's really you're seeing rank and file members call for that. But no one has really been able Republicans are not gonna hold it withhold their over this and Democrats don't have much power. So at this point, it really is up to leadership in how they handle it. We're speaking. With Elisa Collins, congressional reporter at USA today. She's on Capitol Hill. Deserve. Maybe the wrong word in this phrase. So correct me but do Americans deserve to see this report. Or is that doing normally not see these background checks on any officials that the F B I looks into for appointed positions, or whatever we normally do not see these background checks. But normally do not have a public hearing where a supreme court nominee is being accused of sexual assault. And all of America's watched it, and you know, making decisions, so it's just it's really special circumstance in nineteen ninety one the hill Clarence Thomas hearing over sexual harassment. They did change sort of how they the how they handled the FBI report coming back. They didn't do it exactly the traditional way because they say, it was special circumstances, then, and that's certainly the argument people are making this time around, but we'll have to see what happens when the FBI report shows up here. The capital any idea. Like, what format it will be an like will the FBI say or present this is every question we asked of every buddy we talked to and here is the precise. Word response. That those witnesses gave does like is that the way it works where it is some sort of summary or what? So I'm not exactly clear side. We do know that it will be the FBI three. Oh, two. So it's forms. Basically laid they're kind of like memos about interviews. And it's Senator Bob corker described it to us as like raw data. We're not going to see a summary. That says this is what we think happened in this is who is correct. It might just be a pile of papers. Basically summarizing different interviews may be questioned. There included. Maybe not by really pretty raw. And then the senators will go through and corker rape, something basically saying, you know, people could contradict each other. And there's no real clear summary expected. It's not like all tied up in a nice package. It's just a bunch of interviews and notes about interviews bound together.

"Republicans are planning a careful choreography for reviewing the results of the FBI's background probe into judge cavenaugh that includes restricting its distribution and inviting senators to a secure meeting room in the capitol to review the report. So says Elisa Collins congressional reporter at USA today. She's with us from Capitol Hill Elisa what will happen. This memorandum from two thousand nine bipartisan memorandum lays out how these things can be processed. And it's basically a lot of secrecy is it goes to the White House. The White House gives it to the Senate Judiciary committee who take it into a room, and they have a faith in someone watching it. There's just one copy and then senators can request to be briefed on it. It's not exactly clear if it'll be that once it's here, if they'll be taking it to senators, or if it will be in a secure location at the capitol or senators can come look at it. It's looking more likely it'll be at a secure location. But the main point is is that just senators and nine other staff members has been cleared can look at this. So Americans who want to see the report. Well, basically, you're out of luck at this moment. Okay. I get the sense that secret as it's going to be somebody's going to leak stuff. Right. I I get that Santa reporter helped out. We are. That's a concern. Actually, it's interesting that majority leader Mitch McConnell on the judiciary committee has had looked. We're following some random for doing this by the books, but both Republicans and Democrats rank and file members have said, well, if we can't show them, the actual files from let's at least do a summary and really fat because this is a special circumstance and a lot of Republicans have exactly what you said. I am concerned about selective leaking. So if it's forced to remain private, you know, then people might be just part of it, or what they view as cracked. And I'm sure that both sides are concerned about selective leaking. And so that's really your rank and file members call for that. But no one has really been able Republicans are not gonna hold it withhold their vote over this and Democrats don't have much power. So at this point, it really is up to leadership in how they handle it. We're speaking with Elisa. Collins congressional reporter at USA today. She's on Capitol Hill. Deserve. Maybe the wrong word in this phrase. So correct me what do Americans deserve to see this report. Or is that doing normally not see these background checks on any officials that the FBI looks into for appointed positions, or whatever we normally do not see these background checks. But we also normally do not have a public hearing where a court nominee is being accused of sexual assault. And all of America's watched it, and you know is making decisions. So it's just it's really special circumstance in nineteen ninety one being need a hill. Clarence Thomas hearing over sexual harassment. They did change sort of how they be how they handled the FBI report coming back. They didn't do it exactly the traditional way because they say, it was special circumstances, then, and that's certainly the argument people are making this time around, but we'll have to see what happens when the FBI report shows up here. The capital any idea. Like, what format it will be an like, we'll the FBI say or present this is every question we asked of every buddy we talked to. And here's the precise word response. That those witnesses gave to us like is that the way it works or does some sort of summary or what? So I'm not exactly clear side. We do know that it will be the FBI three. Oh, two. So it's basically way they're kind of like memos about interviews. And it's Senator Bob corker described it to us as like raw data. So we're not going to see a summary. That says this is what we think happened in this is who is correct. It might just be a pile of papers. Basically summarizing different interviews may be questioned. There included maybe not, but really pretty raw. And then the senators will go through and corker raised something basically saying, you know, people could contradict each other. And there's no real clear summary expected. It's not like all tied up in a nice package. It's just a bunch of interviews and notes about interviews bound together. He's Elisa Elisa Collins, congressional reporter at USA today. Fourteen minutes now after the hour on This Morning, America's first news. Capital?

"On this Tuesday the final ups for what. Are shaping up to be two of the most competitive Senate races in the country will be decided today voters in Arizona Florida. And Oklahoma will be the final, three states to have, a series of big primaries with just over. Two months to go until the general election November eighth the blockbuster race today is the GOP primary. To replace Arizona Senator. Jeff flake who is retiring at the end of. The year it's a story by USA, today congressional reporter Elisa. Collins a set this up different states next month but none of these. States have sort of big blockbuster races as we have an Arizona and Florida Two of the I would say top ten Senate races we're watching really closely November that could decide who hold onto the, Senate they're office some interesting governors. Races in both. States and of course Trump looms large and a lot of these races he's endorsed a. Few candidates other candidates have tried to kind of cozy up to him to make it past the primary primary voters tend to be, more favorably if, the president and so we'll really have to see how that plays out start with the Arizona center is the most interesting race in Arizona I would say is. The Republican Senate primary that has three different candidates in it and they're sort of all different household names Republican Representative Martin mix. Sally is a congresswoman she is, the first woman to, ever fly in a fighter on to be. A fighter pilot and so she is she used to be a little bit more of a centrist Republican she represents a southern Arizona district that Hillary Clinton. One she's nuked further to the right to try, to win this primary and has gotten closer to Trump in the. Process but she is presumed. To be the winner escaping off against sheriff Joe Arpaio who may remember because last. Year President Trump part in the very controversial sheriff over in Arizona, and then Kelli ward who is a former state Senator and a doctor and she his kind of making all kinds of headlines because last week on Friday after Senator John McCain's family said that he would not, be seeking medical treatment anymore the cancer had, basically progressed, too far. One of her aides. Question the timing of that announcement saying was designed to hurt Kelli ward and then rather than. Condemning that aid ward. Actually doubled down on that of course Canada McCain died on Saturday and ward has been just falling for she, basically said political correctness is like cancer on Monday but the three of. Them are all competing on Tuesday and. President Trump has not endorsed, anyone but he actually said nice things at various points about college, so how much of a role will President Trump's endorsement -plore non endorsement, I guess, really play in Arizona Really Has not endorsed any of the three of, them which is very interesting because MC, Sally certainly the favorite of Senate majority Mitch. McConnell a lot of Washington Republicans basically see. Her I'd be best chance they have of keeping the Senate seat ride. Senator Jeff flake is, retiring and deceit is one of, Democrats best pickup opportunities cinema is a democratic. Congresswoman she does have a primary challenge on, Tuesday but she's assumed puke come out on top of that and Republicans, say she's kind of Democrats best chance of flipping the. Seat she's a centrist, democrat he's got a really good job creating relationships and bipartisan legislation with Republicans in, congress And so they. Feel that MacAulay is their best shot keeping that Trump has said nice things about MC salary but has, not endorsed her and I don't know, what that comes back from Sally date criticize. Him in two thousand sixteen remember she had. To win in a district that is about evenly split with Republicans and. Democrats and Trump is, not wildly popular there so I, don't know if it comes back from that. But he has not given his official endorsement, he just endorsed the governor of Arizona and his primary race on Monday, but so far has not endorsed Sally speaking with USA. Today congressional reporter Elisa, Collins talking about Tuesday's primaries she'll explain what's happening in Florida on the Senate side So I'm in Florida on, the. Senate side in, November it's, going to. Be a huge race. The governor Rick Scott he's a Republican, governor he's popular and he has lots and lots of, money which matters in a state like Florida where at. The very expensive he is facing a primary challenger but, it's by someone named rocky, deal if one day and he ran in states all across the country he does not let. Me money he's not likely to be actually challenger at all and he's running against sitting Senator, Bill Nelson who had a democrat he's. Unopposed so day that race is not going to be, incredibly interesting but it'll basically be the finalizing. Of match up that in November is one of Republicans top pickup opportunities, allies it's USA today congressional reporter Elisa Collins it is twenty, minutes now, after the hour on this morning.

"Ford or shaping up to be two of the most competitive Senate races in the country will be decided today voters in Arizona. Florida and Oklahoma will be final three states to have a series of big primaries with just over two months to go until. The general election November eighth the, blockbuster race, today is the GOP primary to replace, Arizona Senator Jeff flake who. Is retiring at the end of the year it's a story by USA today congressional reporter Elisa Collins allies a set, this up Eric different states next month but, none of these states have sort. Of a big. Of blockbuster races as we have an era Zona in Florida Those are two of the. Top ten Senate races we're watching really closely in November that could decide who hold onto the. Senate their office an interesting governors races and states and of course Trump plans large. And a lot of these. Races he's endorsed a few candidates other candidates tried to kind of cozy up to him to make it past the primary primary, voters tend to, be more favorably if the president and so we'll really have to see how that plays out marts start with with the Arizona Senator as the most interesting. Race in Arizona I would say is the Republican Senate primary that has three different candidates and there's sort of all different household. Names Republican Representative Marcin MC Sally, is a, congresswoman she is the first woman to, ever fly in a fighter. On to be a fighter pilot and so she is she used to be a little bit more of a centrist Republican she, represents, a southern Arizona district that. Hillary Clinton one she's nuked further to the right to try to win this primary and has. Gotten closer to Trump. In the process but she is presumed to be the winner She is facing off against sheriff Joe Arpaio who may remember because last year President Trump, part in, ten two very controversial sheriff over an air Zona and then. Kelli ward who the former state Senator.

The timing of, that announcement saying was it designed to, hurt Kelli ward and then rather than condemning that aid ward. Actually doubled down on that of course Canada McCain guide. On Saturday and ward has been just plowing forward she basically said political correctness is like cancer on Monday but the, three of them are all competing on Tuesday And President, Trump has, not, endorsed anyone but he actually said nice things that various points. About college so, how much over role will President Trump's, endorsement -plore non endorsement I guess really play in Arizona He has not endorsed any of the. Three of them which is very, interesting because Mick Sally certainly the favorite of Senate majority Mitch. McConnell a lot of Washington Republicans. Basically see her be best chance they have, of keeping the Senate seat read Senator Jeff flake is retiring and, so they deceit is one of Democrats best pickup opportunities. Kirstin cinema is a, democratic congresswoman she does have a primary challenge on Tuesday but she's seemed to come. Out on top that and Republicans say she's kind of Democrats best chance of flipping the seat she's, a centrist democrat she's done a really good job creating relationships and bipartisan legislation with Republicans in congress and so they feel, that McConnell is their, best shot of keeping that Trump has. Said nice things but he has not endorsed her and I don't, know what, that comes back from Sally did criticize him in two thousand, sixteen remember she had to win in a district that. Is about evenly split, with Republicans and Democrats and Trump is not wildly popular there so I don't know. If it comes back from that but he has not given his official endorsement he just endorsed the, governor of Zona and his primary race on Monday but so far has not endorsed Speaking with USA today congressional reporter, Elisa Collins talking about Tuesday's primaries So explain, what's happening in Florida on the Senate side So in Florida on, the Senate side in November. It's going to be huge raise the governor Rick Scott he's a Republican governor is popular and he has lots and lots of money. Which matters in a statewide Florida, where they're very expensive he is facing. A primary challenger but it's by someone named rocky deal if, one day and he runs. In states across the country he does not many many he's. Not likely to be actually a serious challenger at all and he's, running against sitting Senator Bill Nelson who had a democrat he's unopposed so, day that race is not going to be incredibly interesting but it'll basically be the finalizing of matchup that.

"So why would they reward them by giving them leadership pucks but that's what the freedom caucus would like to say we're speaking with elisa collins congressional reporter at usa today she's written a piece entitled after paul ryan retires freedom caucus has power in choosing next speaker art so we have heard that kevin mccarthy from california the number two was interested in that steve scalise the number three among house republicans was also interested but wouldn't challenge mccarthy and along comes as you uncovered friday jim jordan from ohio so kevin hart is kind of the front runner right now he's the number two so makes sense for him to succeed paul ryan he's very close to the president he's run for this before he was not able to secure speaker before he dropped out because of the freedom caucus and conservative who basically did not like him and it became clear that he would not have enough votes to become speaker so he's last minute and that's how we got paul ryan who did not want the job and was basically convinced to taken speech places the number three and he's also close to the president they're not in the same way he's also close to paul ryan but because he served a number three he's close to kevin mccarthy he has said he will not run if kevin mccarthy is running but he's also said he will not not read so he's still kind of laying the groundwork i think in case something like kevin mccarthy decides to drop out again or they're the real push from members internally to say look mccarthy does not have the votes you do so he's not ruling it out but now we have jim jordan who is the former chair of the freedom caucus he's on their board he's basically very powerful within the group and he told me that he is considering running elisa elisa collins congressional reporter at usa today this portion of the program is brought to you by ct shirts do you want to be wearing some of the best.

"The scene is house republicans to pass these things on party line if almost everyone votes senate does not the senate requires sixty votes right now it's fifty one forty nine majority and we're sort of in this weird space where the mississippi senator has just retired and the new one has not come in yet so it's actually like fifty forty nine and senator john mccain has not been in washington for a few months of kind of like forty nine forty five so the chances something like that passing the senate is nine and even in the house it's pretty low because a lot of these republicans that are endanger sort of moderate vulnerable republicans are not gonna wanna vote to take out something that they just voted to pass for sticking with elisa collins of usa today elisa where do we stand on daca right now doc it is a tough one daca is probably not going to happen president trump reversed the deferred action for childhood arrivals program in the fall he gave congress six months to find a solution he said it was unconstitutional that president obama put it in place these are the protections for undocumented immigrants who came here as children and congress couldn't get it together but part of the reason congress couldn't get it together was because president trump kept changing his mind what he would and wouldn't accept so six months tom and nothing has happened but the court besides that it's going to the supreme court decides that it's basically going to knock fasttrack the case which means the daca renewal have to keep being accepted until a court makes a decision which probably won't happen until the mid term so a lot of lawmakers breathed a sigh of relief because they don't really have to deal with it right away thanks elisa elisa collins of usa today.
