Because i'm chatting to my cousin who i spoke to las jer in twenty twenty about her experience of studying from hiram so today away catching up to see what's changed. What stayed the say. And all those good question so billon so a year on from lockdown. Tell us what's happened. Since i think mainly just family like having everybody mum semi mom my dad and my sister wall at home and i feel like all of us through lockdown. Although we did get into faisal everybody did. We did get close and we did. I saw a different side of my family which was really good and it meant that. I had a lot of support during lockdown and that i was able to have people to lean on and talk to when you know lie forcing going invest. Obviously because of look down sir in school Like for online. I think the best thing for like for me was probably. I talked a lot with my friends. Like i'd facetime them or uses app courthouse party and i talk to them like every period. I think that helped me a lot. But also just like the support i had from. My family really helped me kept me going one. We lost spoke. You said that you know lockdown was going okay for you there. There were perks to studying from time. Now that you're back in school is this what you prefer or other elements of spending from home that you wish or that. You miss Doing online school was good. Had it's like getting up lighter than i had to get up. I was able to sleep in. I didn't have to get ready every day. I guess i wasn't putting like one hundred percent of my work. But then now that i'm back at school i do have to get up early. I have to catch public transport. I have to be focused in class. And i have to get my work done in class. So i'd 'cause the lockdown a lotta time i would do half the session. They'd come back to it and then do the work. But now i have to get it done in that time period of behind but i think one thing i miss is probably the flexibility and from online i was able to like take my time. If i didn't wanna do work the start of the session. I could do it later on but now i have to like i said i have to get to work on and i have to work at the pace that everybody else works out. Not my That's i mean it's not good to hear but it's interesting for anyone to hear this t here. That working from home or starting from home does have its perks right. I think a lot of the time we assumed that students doing work at home would create havoc and it did for some students but there were other students who also in our own drew a lot of benefits from it. so i think that's important What was the transition like. So when you went back to school on a regular basis. What was that like. Was it easier to adjust. I think at the start. It was kind of easy because we back at the end of the term so there wasn't a lot to like we really spent like maybe a month back at school and then we will on holidays but i think the start of this year has been difficult especially from like me and i know a lot of other people. Because we didn't do. I know for me. I didn't do a lot of work last year. Like it was a lot like second round and not getting the work done. And now i have to go back into an like an environment as i said before. I have to do all the work. So i think sometimes it does get a little bit stressful does get like like a work overload because i am so out so quickly now because i really do not do any work last year. So that's one thing especially because i had exams to do that was a struggle for me because i had to do a whole lot like a whole lot more preparation that i did not do last year and actually all the work that i had been studying. I understand that i learnt it and like knew how to do it in order to do my best listeners. You might notice a lot of background noise a map. A family house where birth at a family house sophie. Here some family in the background. That is why it's from there in twenty twenty one. We had to lockdowns. And i want to know what was that like for you. I didn't struggle. it was more i like. It was kind of easy. 'cause i went back to not doing really anything but in some like the second luxury it interfered on my exams or some of them got cancelled but not really i mean i didn't it was i think it see my friends which i think i had gotten so used to see them. Obviously but then we went back until oxygen and then it was like obviously see them so that was a bit hard. 'cause i did miss them a lot and i did like. I relied on them for some things so not seeing them was a little bit of a struggle but other than that looked good. It was good to get back to like slate like waking up later. That's one thing i did enjoy about it. Have you thought about in the future How you will handle another lockdown like is that something that i suppose keeps you up at night or are.

"So a year ago on may twenty fifth twenty twenty. George floyd died after derek. Chauvin former minneapolis. Police officer put his knee on. George floyd's neck for over nine minutes. The encounter was filmed and slowly made. Its way across social media and the internet until most americans had seen this horrific encounter and it sparked weeks of protests and a a reckoning in america about racial injustice and policing in our criminal justice system. Here we are a year later. Derek chauvin has been convicted in his sentencing will be coming up soon as well as the trial of the other officers on the scene that day and we are still in the middle of that reckoning we have lots of state and local changes when it comes to policing federal legislation that still being negotiated and debated and we wanted to go through some of that here today and talk about what's happened over this past year. Twenty cities have reduced their police budgets in some form that means across the united states. A total of about eight hundred forty million dollars has been subtracted from what we spend on policing twenty. Five cities have ended contracts with police to operate in their school systems in minneapolis. Where mr floyd was murdered. Police funding has been cut by a million dollars. The city reinvested two million dollars in community based violence prevention programs and a new mobile mental health team. All of this is happening as americans attitudes. Continue to be in a bit of flux about what the right answers are here. Axes ipsos polling. Shows that about seventy percent of people opposed the idea of defunding the police including a slight majority of black americans. But then if you ask of if americans support changes to policing diverting some police funds to community policing services a majority of respondents endorsed that goal over the past year we've also seen crime going up now it's hard to know you know what's correlation with causation. Given the pandemic. there are lots of extenuating circumstances including you know the increased tension surrounding this racial reckoning for example seattle cut. Its police budget. Almost twenty percent and finished twenty twenty with its highest homicide rate in decades increased. Response times just this weekend. We had several shootings in cities across america. I don't think there's a major. Us city that hasn't experienced some increase in crime. And so that brings a total different facet to the conversation. Because you know when crime goes up. People are afraid. I think safety is one of the most basic needs that people expect the government to meet. And when there's increased crime be it you know burglaries or homicide. It lends to atmosphere fear and when we are afraid our public policy suffers. I think it it. Shortens timeframe and increases are reactivity increases conflict between groups. Who feel like they have to compete for resources or compete for attention. And i think that that not to mention just the trauma and fallout and the ripple effect across these communities as violence increases to the people who lose loved ones to the people who lose their lives to the children affected by violence so we have this really difficult situation. And i think what's really hard about. It is what you're seeing in policing is not just some cut to funding but hit a real crisis when it comes to recruiting and retaining police officers. It seems like instead of defunding the police. We've really demoralized them. And that to me increases the crisis level reactivity. It's sort of the the worst of both worlds or instead of a careful and thoughtful approach to reform or a careful and thoughtful approach to defunding police if that is your actual goal. We're getting the worst of both worlds. We're just you know creating a crisis in recruitment so that we can't take the time and resources we need to do either reform or a complete reimagining of police the way we want to especially in the context of an increase in crime. I think it's i felt so hopeful at this time last year that things were really going to change and i still see that change and i still feel that we have made tremendous progress especially when it comes to this country wide sort of community level understanding of race relations and the impact of policing but it feels like if we're not in the the messy middle of trying to figure out what this looks like on the ground. We're getting awful close and that part is very very hard. I appreciate that in talking about the increase in crime and police. Violence people are starting to recognize all of the contradictions. That are inherent in this top. I was listening to as reclines podcast. With james foreman junior and he talked about how crime both follows and exacerbates inequality. And i think that's a really important point to hover on. There's been lots of reporting about how communities feel correctly. Both over police and underpoliced leads not get the benefit of public safety but they get disproportionately targeted by police and so there are so many seeming contradictions. That are true at once. And i don't really know how to solve this problem. I do fear that some of our best resources on what we could do especially coming out of this pandemic to make our communities safer are people who are sitting in prisons right now when you really spend time in listen to someone who has been incarcerated especially someone who's been incarcerated for a crime committed out of just a set of awful circumstances and choices. They know a lot about what happens in these communities and what people need to.

"Survival talked about enough I i do think there's far too much talk about death and this is not to discount death and over half a million deaths that our country has experienced over the past year but there are many more people who will survive than who will die and we need to know how to take care of those patients We need to know what to expect so when people Survive in icu hospitalization whether it's from covid or from any other critical illness There the road to recovery candy long. It is not always for everybody but it frequently is long. You don't you. Don't leave the icu. The way went in That that is certainly fair to say so. Sometimes patients go from the icu to the medical ward to home but more frequently in the setting of Needing needing to be on invasive mechanical ventilation needing to be out of ventilator. There are psychological issues that they can experience anxiety depression. Ptsd or not uncommon in the post. Icu population there. There's also a lot of a lot of muscular weakness from inactivity which is one of the reasons patients need to go to rehabilitation. Afterwards my goal.

We're going to get people through this and it's going to suck but but we're going to get we're gonna save some lives and we're gonna be okay and that level of energy and enthusiasm.

We had in In the spring summer it was nothing. Compared to december january in december and january. We had to pull in multiple backup teams for quite a long period of time. We had kobe in many icy us. we were using non. Icu spaces and converted those to icu. Stasis that was that was pretty rough because a lot of fatigue had said at that point and it just had gotten whole up Things have gotten better. Last week's though i will say considerably better. I certainly did not anticipate that would be dealing a year later. I absolutely did not. I remember one of my friends said that back in the spring she said. I don't think this is going to be over until we have back seen like no. That can't be true. It's going to be a few months. It's going to be horrible. It's going to get gradually better. And i mean and she was absolutely right because here we are a year later and still dealing with at all and at least we have a vaccine now but that was the first major glimmer of hope for me.

You think that you could do to be safe if you had to go back to school in the fall social distance social distance. Do you think that might be hard at war now. I'm also been trying to think of stuff to make my zoom meetings that struck because when you at school is kind of boring so i saw some of the things that i'm gonna do is i'm gonna use line and i got some slime for my birthday so i'm definitely going to be playing with that obviously not like mass but like away from the computer.

I'm an assistant professor and director of wellness. Engagement and outreach. I think people are definitely sicker than maybe they were before At the beginning of the pandemic. I think we had a low where people were sort of adjusting to the new normal in this fighter flight mode where they were just you it. Just say like making sure. They had food making sure they had water. Megan sure everything was save and they didn't even really think about their mental health and at the beginning we were sort of like. I guess we don't have that. Many patients were okay and then it took off pretty quickly especially in healthcare workers. Where what they're doing day to day has been so different and not at all what they're used to you. Know healthcare workers in general when they sign on to do what they do didn't really think that they could get themselves or bring home the illness to family members. And so that's a big change. They maybe would see one person diet shift if any and have seen just people dying and dying and dying. So i had a patient. That is really struggling. Tell me that it has. She had called twenty places to try to get a therapist. And nobody had openings. And i could like feel my body physically sink when she said that and i was really just taken aback by that and i know very much that it's also not the therapists fall and that i've been talking to therapists a lot. And they're really struggling. They they also have been taking extra sessions working on weekends taking their old clients back doing all of this extra stuff that you know like flipping over backwards to do as much as they can to accommodate more and more people to fill in the gaps in the system but the system's still can't fit all these people and they're still calling twenty people right. I've would have told you before. Covid that had ten patients or something that i would go to sleep in worry about of my life hundred and fifty year. So you know it's not the case anymore. It's much closer to like over. Half of them. I would say i think you know. Part of that is that you're not seeing movement on them improving.

"Literally have tears and I'm trying really hard not to ugly cry right now. Thank you guys so much for sending in those audio clips or really just humbles us to hear how the podcast has impacted you and to everyone else who took the time to submit an itunes rating or review. We're just so grateful. We read every single one and truly it humbles us cannot inside at enough and you know we wanted to highlight a couple of those reviews To say thank you for taking the time and just to share how much of an impact it has made on us on this journey of making this podcast so a couple that I chose one is from a sixteen year old girl. And I've mentioned this in an episode before because it really didn't impact me and I wanted to bring it back and actually read a lot of what she said so she sat. I'm a sixteen year old. Who's used to listening to and reading Christian stuff that is geared towards MOMS and wives? I don't think I can explain how refreshing it was to hear them. Say that they knew high-schoolers might be tuning in. Because I think most people assume that high schoolers would rather be sending snaps on snapchat than learning about how to serve aboard. Also the idea that it's not just for MOMS and wise was thrilling. Because I think people forget that you're just as important to the Lord when you're single as married. It was especially lovely. When they said that women are not only meant to be wives and mothers. But first and foremost to be disciples of Christ. This podcast has opened my eyes to a lot of things that I need to work on my heart and his honestly made me feel like I belong in the Christian world as much as anyone else And this review has stuck with me for many reasons why that captures our heart to communicate that the Gospel and our spiritual disciplines are for all seasons of life. You know no matter what our life look like. Our ultimate purpose is the same and that is to glorify God and then to we really do hope to communicate how important every member of the body is and really show how we need each other right. We need each member in the body to be healthy as local church and as the big C church. And so thank you Lindsey Jay Hunt for leaving this review and it really just encouraged us to press on and one more review that I wanted to pull was from Kate. Rc She said. I can't say enough how much I love the daily grace podcast. I listen weekly. I've never listened to a podcast by women for women that has been so challenging. Convicting and encouraging. This is not your average. Listen and feel better about yourself. Podcast these women spend time preparing to teach truth but in such a loving way. I haven't listened to one. Podcast that has not both encouraged and convicted me. Please listen learned with me. Thank you kate for this review and for faithfully listening every week. We're just so grateful. And we appreciate your support and join. I really do prepare for each episode and we make sure that everything we say aligns with scripture and we also pray that we are communicating all of this truth in love and we do hope our listeners always feel a part of the conversation and we really are on this pursuit of holiness together. Wouldn't you say Joanna? Oh yeah absolutely. And it's been so encouraging to see reviews from people of all different life stages I'm new believers seasoned believers and a couple that I wanted to share one is from Pamela Hubbard and this is right back on the podcast I released. She said this podcast is relatable and grounded in the truths of the Gospel. The topics meet you right. Where you are encouraging you to simultaneously grow deeper in Christ will also resting in His grace and I just loved that because our heart is that that would happen that we would rest in who God is and in His grace but also that would empower ass and compel us to growth obedience. Yeah Another one from our farnd she said the focus of daily grace is spot on God his word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ are made much of you'll find solid biblical truth here to help you grow in your love for the Lord which is what transforms every area of your life such joy and hope to be found and that is our prayer that would be made much of the Gospel be made much of here and one more from Amanda Forty two she said so relatable and filling. I've been looking for a podcast. That would really dive into faith in scripture but felt like it was good conversation. This is it. I'm constantly saying Yes to every point made in the episode this'll be a shy can replay over and over and still find things. I missed the first time I especially was touched by this one because our heart for this from the beginning has been that we can offer deep truths of scripture in a way. That is meaningful approachable. Yeah and that actually impacts our daily lives so thank you so much for all of the reviews. There are so many We would've loved to spend hours reading them all but unfortunately we can't do that and but we so appreciate them and I did want to introduce to you. Another person who really helps to make these. Podcasts sound great and that is our editor Jesse. Believe me our podcast would not be what it is without Jesse and so we actually wanted to welcome her onto the podcast. Give you a little behind the scenes info here so Jesse. Thank you for joining us all. Thank you for having me you guys. It's a privilege for sure. Yeah Jesse came on with US. Pretty close to win the podcast first released and it has been such a blessing off the privileges mind. Yeah you guys have no idea how much I stumbled just reading a quote and Jesse just makes that while Jesse we would love to hear from you. We want to share looking back over the past year. What each of our favorite episodes was back in less than if you haven't had a chance. So Jesse what was your favorite episode. Yeah I think My favorite episode for a while as episode twenty five. What's God's will for your life and I think it became an instant favourite honestly because it's just a really important subject matter because I think there's a lot of confusion and the lack of clarity on the subject. I don't feel that at first. I was well taught in this subject and I feel like you ladies really just hit it home and when discerning God's will and decision making I think a lot of us have expected a sign or some sort of emotional confirmation. I know I have but it's just an encouraging reminder to as long as the decision we make doesn't go against scripture or has sinful motives tied with it we are truly free to make that decision and Shirley as we grow in the Lord and the knowledge of his word and we will grow and godly wisdom to make these decisions but we shouldn't expect like a lightning bolt from heaven whatever to affirm decision by any means. And you guys just did a really good job of widening. The scope of God's will and that is just far more than decision making and that even within scripture talks about the will of the Lord's for our sanctification that we abstained from sexual immorality and then in another area rejoice always praise these give. Thanks in all circumstances for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you and I think all of this was just nailed home so well and so clear for me in a just encouraging reminder and surely it was helpful to many people. But I'm curious about you guys though Stephanie. What was your favorite episode in the last year? Yeah I note about the episode. Just mentioned I remember when we were working through that episode thinking man. I wish someone told me this when I was eighteen. Yeah I do hope that that episode continues to serve people all ages and brings clarity on that topic and yeah we're just reminds believers of their freedom in Christ but as far as my favorite episode. I can think of three that stand out but I decided to choose the one out of the three. That's an interview We're really grateful for every single person who takes the time to record with us and speak into a topic Often hard topics that maybe we feel like we just want that extra voice of wisdom to add to the conversation so I'm grateful for everyone that has come on but one interview. That deeply impacted me was episode. Fourteen discipleship and evangelism with Tamsin Baker. And so- Tamsin reminded me how discipleship and evangelism are naturally part of the life of a believer and I actually really listened to the episode This week and gained so much someone said they repeat listening to the episodes and get more and I'm the same way honestly and you know again listening through I was just so encouraged to be consistent and the word you know. She talks about how the little mornings of faithfully reading the word adds up and so it was encouragement to me. Even this week to have this long term mindset and then she also just was such a great example of being purposeful in the mundane so to have is to see windows of opportunities to show the love of Christ and the Gospel and then lastly man I think she exemplified the so well but she was so others oriented she really cared for others and that was just so evident you know not just their spiritual needs but also their tangible you know everyday needs and so yeah just listening again to that episode. I was just you know fired up again and reminded to be consistent in the word. Be purposeful in every little thing I do because it matters for eternity answer just love to really care and love for others. And so yeah. That was my favorite episode. From this past year doing what was yours this was the hardest question scrolling through thinking. Ooh that one. Oh I know I did decide to land on one. That is a current favorite because I think back on it and draw from it often. That's episode thirty nine. What to do with bad days and and it has just been thinking back on all the things that we talked about an the truth that the Gospel actually transforms our bad days and our bad days. Difficult experiences have good purposes and good outcomes. It's just been such a source of encouragement for me when I'm having a hard moment Said that's a big one. I mean some close seconds. Where like preaching the Gospel to yourself episode seven and suffering and sovereignty with Maurizio Gutierrez? Ray Wins you gotta get your tissues ready for that lead but I really. It was really hard to pick. But it's been so sweet to learn from these episodes myself. Yeah you know I was going to choose preaching the Gospel to yourself as well. Because there's a cool backstory to that that we haven't shared that's the only episode that we lost the recording and had to you. That's right I forgot about that. Yeah and honestly it was a whole nother episode when we revisited it and I think that was all God and that was such an impact for Apple said for essay. Because you know not only did it lead to as writing the study but it really challenged us to have gospel fluency and really dig into how does the? Gospel apply these Berry real aspects of our life. And how could we communicate that so I think that was a very really pivotal time in our podcast? So yeah that was definitely good one. If you haven't listened to it but yeah as many of you know we always under interviews by asking our guests three fun questions and thought it would be fun for the three of us to answer those questions focusing on this past year. So we'll talk about our top three favorite things from this past year. What's on her nightstand? And what's a resource that has most stirred are factions for God's word in this past year so in twenty nineteen so Joanna start us off there? What are your top three favorite things from this past year? The pressure so we have kind of shared some different kinds of things and our favorite things. Maybe it's like a food item or a spiritual resource or an experience. So I thought I'd share one of each of those good place. Oh I is my new T. habit drinking tea a EB. I'm drinking some right now.

"The kind of Voters that might have even been part of the trump coalition in the states or whether the Democratic Party by being true to its principles and and kind of more liberal vision can blow low through turnout models change the shape of the electorate in those six dates and other places with a kind of Warren or sanders type candidate. I have a question about the the idea of how significant this poll is a year out nate cones the Times reporter. Who did the palm talking about? It said hey a year out is is basically just as good as right before the election and then need silver. The grew fivethirtyeight said polls a year out like not not that not that that reality based not that important. What's the answer here? I first of all the answer is the pollinger is need to get different first names. It's too confusing to have both nate Cohn silber ever be named nate. Just a problem to actually. I feel like natone nate. Cohn has has. I Know Nate Cohn I've met needs over a couple of times. Cocoon is definitely riding on the coattails of nate silver. He's like oh where's the what's Hot Poli Name. It's nate. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa glommed onto that and the time hired him you don't offense would appreciate the answer to this John. One of these polls year out matter don't matter there's a general principle and then I don't know I didn't see what nate silver of fivethirtyeight sad I did read in The Times. The idea the statement that I and I have a note here go check checking out and see if that's in fact true or if there's like some important caveat but yeah the the the article that went along with the polling said that on average in the last three cycles head to head polls Aguirre ahead of the election have been as close to the final result as those taken the day before The final result I just say like tweet. You know what Posey are out there. But I'm not sure will first of all there aren't polls taken the day before I don't think right because the polls released as the deport but anyway the broader more important point is so much changes in happens. You can't I mean you can set. You can say that. That's been what they result in the the past has been but if there's an instance in which past performance does not predict future results in this current political environment. I think that would be wise to keep in mind in that in that context But I do think the idea that if the electoral college is still in play a in our presidential elections than it is important to look at the at the states that will that will matter Attar with respect to the Electoral College. So I think looking at these six states Makes Sense and then we should probably turn to this idea of what's the actual electric look like. And then WHO's best setup to make the case that electric I thought what was the most interesting thing. Innate cones piece accompanying this story about. His poll was noting. What what kind of people seem to be supporting Biden but not Warren or Warren but not Biden and yeah and that you have the categories of for example? There's sanders seems to pick up a bunch of young voters when you poll who don't want to then vote for Wariner Biden and Biden seems to pick up Like a lot of people who don't seem to WanNa vote for a woman. For example there seems to be a lot of just out and out cold stone sexist in the electorate which was horrified to read forty percent of the people there are six percent of the electorate is by not Warren and forty percent of them was answering yes to questions that made them seem like sexist Texas questions about the ability of Warren and female candidates in general. But and I've said this before but this is basically votes in the Democratic primaries and caucuses are going to be about punditry about what your neighbour thinks so you know Democrats are are by wide majorities fine with having a woman president but they don't think that their fellow Democrats Democrats are fine with having a woman president which means when they vote or the casting vote for the person they think should do the job or they doing the casting vote for the person they think. We'll have the best chance in general unroll action because of people's predispositions about women and that's what a mess that isn't trying to sort that out. Good luck with that. John What do you make of the fact that so this. The poll a swing states included the six states Wisconsin Pennsylvania Michigan Carolina Florida Arizona. It did not include Georgia Texas and Ohio. which are an an Iowa? So I think the presumption being that Ohio an Iowa are now basically Republican states. And it's going to be. They're not really swing states and that but also there's this at least conversation that I hear among people that Georgia and Texas are potentially in play and Arizona certainly played. Do I guess it means it's it's it's making taking some bats on two things one. Is that basically. The shape of the electric highway in Ohio is just Democrats are never gonNA do well enough to reach far enough into the white working class voters in those states or white borough voters in Iowa to beat. Also you've got you've got a Senate race in Iowa that'll with an incumbent Republican that'll tweak things for the for the Democrats and so although by the way we should note but just as a farm state. Here's we should talk about this. If you look inside the Republican coalition it seems to me. Democrats would have some opportunities. Let's talk about role voters for a moment. Bankruptcies for farms are going to be as high as they as they've ever been in two thousand nineteen the bail out to the farmers is now bigger net- net- than the bail out of the car companies under the Obama Administration because of the fight with China and the tariff battles with with with other countries if you were compelling candidate Who could make the case to a rural voters and you believed and again? We're there's some. There's there's some things implicit in what I'm saying that some people don't believe because some people leave these voters are gone at. It's all about identity not economics in there for. Why should Democrat spend a lot of time doing that but back to your basic point David? The Republican coalition has those two states and the Democrat. Coalition doesn't have enough in Georgia and Texas that this cycle. They'll be able to make inroads inroads if you believe in a warren kind of candidacy a pure base rile the base up candidacy which is essentially what trump is running on the republican side. You could try to make a case as for Georgia and taxes but the problem is if you run heavy towards turning out the liberal coalition in those states you would weaken your ability so goes the theory in six states that are are that are closest and that's another reason they picked these six that have a more mixed Electorate as the time sees it and most people only last question on this this topic so John Eight in New York magazine. Some Subsection York magazine. I can't remember which one concludes that the leftward tilt of the Democrat. Kennedy is turning out to be a disaster that they've lost touch with medium voters. They desperately need to get back to the center before they find themselves with unelectable candidate. Is it the case Warren and Sanders or essentially given themselves iron crosses. They've hung iron crosses around their neck for the general election. I find myself wishing that more mourn had not come up with a Medicare for all tax plan like really wish that she had just said. It'll be magic which is what Republicans say all the time but their plans. It's always like oh it'll be. Bajic could economic growth magic. She'll she'll be able to run away from that or is it really something that is going to drag her. I mean people move to the The ideological edge of their parties in primaries right Republicans moved to the right Democrats moved to the left the ideas and you tack to the Center and the general election. There's there's plenty of time. I do wonder about what these candidates are thinking in terms of not sticking with the most popular positions now now. Obviously Warren wants to be able to attract Bernie Sanders voters. And you know I with zero reporting. You could imagine that she is trying to make sure sure that. If and when Zander's drops out he full-throatedly endorses her and so she becomes the candidate of the left. I also think she believes in Medicare for all and yet. There is so much that these Democratic candidates could do for healthcare or for example on immigration with a path to citizenship. That is broadly popular happyhiller. That one wonders whether it would be politically wiser to stick to those positions. I mean this is a question that people like Maddock laziest at Fox have been asking for months and and when they put up the poll numbers every time it looks pretty persuasive to me. As just a matter of pragmatic politics looks for Jason Fitz sticking with broadly sadly popular positions that are more centrist. And that actually could become law would be smarter like we are not going to immediately have medicare for all so we're having They're taking Warren and Sanders. Particularly Warrant are taking a big political risk for something that doesn't seem particularly reality based and so then does it. Is it really necessary. Ray was so this is as you quite rightly pointed out. This is always the problem with primaries. It's why people have Think the primaries are part of the reason. Our politics are so messed up because everybody has to get into a very not only far left but also detached debate as a way to signal to their electorates that they are more pure than the next wchs person to your point emily about the environments can look like a year from now. Let's imagine a Democrat wins. Okay so Democrat wins. If they win it will have been on a restoration ticket which is to say. We're going to fix things post. Donald trump that gives you a huge to do is just start the the day. Okay before you get to Medicare for all you've got a lot of stuff to do to restore store and by the way most of it's going to be overseas and some large portion of it's going to be secret so there's that second of all the the intervening election over the year next year is is going to be scorched earth. So how you're GonNa get this through a medicare for all through Congress even through trying to use reconciliation after that year seems a more unlikely really than even would be today. As you quite rightly said Emily you go to you go to the left or you go to the left the right in your primaries and come back to the middle but that also depends on a you know. Politics has changed a little bit in terms of the Public Square. When you can make that case that you're not exactly the person you ran in the primaries as being it's harder to do that now secondly which should these candidates has the facility and ability to make that case or do they keep stepping on there? You know there are other shoes tied together. And so that's one question. Can they even get back back to that position. And then the question is what do you guys think that position looks like in the general election for a Democrat to to either undermine the president's coalition or to build success in areas like the suburbs Where you've seen some of these opportunities for Democrats are I cannot let the segment paths John on without noting what is surely the most important electoral result from Tuesday surprising result out of New Haven Connecticut which just elected in nineteen eighteen year old a nineteen year old one? It's all doors and this nineteen year old one a staggering ninety percent of the vote. What do you make of the overwhelming mandate mandate one by? Eli Sabin whose mother is noted political commentator Emily Babylon just how significant do you feel victory for the future of the republic. Well fortunately playing for for all those people who feel jittery about the state of the future and the state of the Republic really about whether there is verifiable truth fin these troubled times that we live in. Now I think not just the people in the In the quiet suburbs of new haven and the urban centers of that city but also really across the country in the world can find themselves Sleeping easier now as a result of that Outcome Emily Mazal Tov.

"first year" Discussed on Slate's Political Gabfest
"Me visually but not physically. Is Emily Baz Lan of the New York Times magazine looking at over over skype. Hello Emily although although David Jail how are you. I'm good glad to be here and then joining me not visually but telephonically John dickerson of CBS. Sixty minutes from New York New York Hello John dickerson. Hello David I Is it telephonically. Come come on God interesting radio telephone telephonic. Oh my God you're dripping. You're being pedantic already on. Today's Gabfest election results in Kentucky and Virginia and bold and Democrats and then there are discouraging poll results in swing estates for Democratic presidential candidates then impeachment barrels forward. What happened this week? What is about to happen? And then president trump withdraws ause the United States from the Paris climate accord is that catastrophic or merely terrible plus. You'll have cocktail chatter one year from this this week we will have elected a new president or possibly the same president and this week we saw the last major elections before twenty twenty in a bunch of states that weirdly weirdly have off your elections which are always cute but confusing. Because you're like it's an odd year. Why is there an election? But it's still nice to have and then we also saw some very interesting gene and if you're a Democrat alarming poll results for Democratic primary challenges. So let's start with With the two thousand nine hundred John in the Commonwealth of Virginia cradle title of the Republic the cradle in fact John Dickerson. Democrats took control of the State Senate in the State House Why is that important? Why is it overdue isn't important and overdue? Well I think it's it's important. Well it's for the first time in fifty years so that's when any any time anything for the first time in fifty years you should take note of it. Basically most people would say what this does is it ends the charade that Virginia is not a blue state you know it went from being red to purple to blue and so they're saying that it's that it's Now a blue state and that. I don't know what I think about that debate. That's fine you can have that debate the most interesting thing. It seems to me about Virginia Virginia to the two most important results are first of all that the that Republicans did not win back the seats that they lost in two thousand seventeen when Democrats. It's had strong showings in Republican areas and then Democrats won in additional areas to take control over The two state houses you you now have the to stay two houses in the governorship all insane party which means there's going to be a series of series of legislation passed in Virginia on On Gun Control Troll in particular that'll be Very interesting to watch. Why is that interesting because of the second thing so the first point is Democrats are showing strength? Republicans weakness is in the exurbs the areas out suburbs outside. And that's something we'll talk a lot about because it was also strong for Democrats in Kentucky in the argument is that if it's been strong consistently gently in two thousand eighteen and twenty nineteen that's bad for Donald Trump. But the second thing that's important in Virginia's it's the home of the NRA the forces of gun control gun safety fifty. Whatever you WANNA call it basically now have beaten the NRA in their own backyard? That would mean a lot for gun legislation in Virginia and for the For for the everytown organization it. It's a model for inroads. They might be able to make in other states emily quickly. Let's also hit the. I think probably the other our big state for Democrats. This week was Kentucky where the Democrat in a very red state beat the extremely hated. Incumbent Governor Matt Bevin then in a state where president trump campaign and try to tie the Democrat Anti Bashir to impeachment trump had won the state by thirty Republicans. Want every single single other statewide office. that was up is Bevan's loss a warning trumper not really. Is it just like a particular particular set of circumstances with an extremely bad and hated incumbent. I think more of the latter you know. I wonder if people think differently friendly about the governor in some circumstances than the sort of normal party polarized politics that we have you know. I'm thinking of the fact that a Democrat is governor in Kansas or Republican governor of Massachusetts. There's a way in which that administrative job can. I think seems a little less political will than some other positions and I mostly just think that. Yeah what you said. There was an extremely unpopular incumbent. It's true the president trump couldn't save him but he had been his zone worst enemy. It's a great question but the what I think will be interesting. Is If you match the suburban and exurban results in Kentucky with with what happened with in Virginia and then what happened in the same areas with the same kind of voters in eighteen whether it's demonstrably true that that will all play out the same way in two thousand twenty it suggests enough data points that it puts high and heavy uncertainty in the air for Republican senators who are running in twenty twenty and places where they are. They're gonNA depend on thinking of people. Cory Gardner Susan Collins running in states where they need those votes and if Donald Trump and the Republican Party of Donald Donald Trump has consistently been showing weaknesses in those areas again whether it actually plays out that way in two thousand twenty. I think it's going to make some nervousness and change perhaps perhaps some calculations over the next year as Republicans worry about becoming a party that is justified by the trump coalition which is essentially non college whites Evangelical and rural voters and that nervousness. Again whether it's true or not will create some some Potential for some more more destabilizing action among Republicans Possibly actually. I had a question about that. John is John Cornyn for election. Yes twenty twenty. Yeah I mean that's when when I look at what John Cornyn is doing which is to not be as full-throated around impeachment as you nearly expect the number two Republican in the Senate. He's a Texas Republican. I that to me is a signal. He is very worried that that he you know he could face something serious again. These are these linkages we should all these are drawn in in Pencil and very lightly. But but I would also link it to what what I went on at some length about with Mitch McConnell. The a couple of weeks ago when he was asked About the conversation the president said he had with McConnell and McConnell basically through the president under the bus. I think you can. If you start to see a number of these things you see some Can whether the distancing from the president is even possible. I think that's quite hard to do for anybody. But but just the more uncertainty and destabilization. Shen there is in the world added to the existing highly destabilizing behavior of the president. And the people who are defending him it just adds more kind of frenetic possibilities in an already pretty frantic political world As everybody's trying to gauge what. The politics are going to look like a on election day a year from now now that puts so much uncertainty in in the system for Republicans to see this weakness repeated in these areas that used to be part of their coalition. And yet if you Dr Cory Gardner or Susan Collins or even John Cornyn. Aren't you kind of caught in a vice like you can try to put some distance between you and the So you know I would say most like crazy. Two defenders of trump like mark meadows. Who just seem to be saying? I mean and Lindsey Graham like I am in lockstep with the president no matter what he says says. I'm going in that direction. They're stepping back from that but in the end like there will presumably be an impeachment trial in the Senate and it's very hard to imagine agean than currently voting to remove from office president trump. Now I do think that could change. I mean we saw a public approval of President Nixon drastically graphically moved downward during the public hearings in Watergate but I just feel like from the vantage point of right now. This is like the either Angel or devil of being a trump supporter or a Republican senator. In the trump era. You may be trying to maintain some what kind of semblance of separation. But how far is that really going to get you. Whether a candidate any candidate can separate themselves in a nationalized election and we have them even even an off year so of course we're going to have on twenty twenty is I think basically most people have been in the game. Say You can't do it. You can't get out from under a president however candidates it's in fear of not being re-elected Tend to do things you know. They'd Throw Hail Mary passes. And you know Cory Gardner in Colorado which is basically. He's basically a one third one third state so Democrat Independent. Republican split the state in thirds John Hickenlooper who's running against the former governor and Mayor of Denver is a very popular popular fellow in the state. So Cory Gardner you could imagine again. If even if you stipulate that you can't get out from under a president may still try and and why does that matter. Well that's one guy in one state well for Colorado is a battleground state second of all as we know from this president when a when one person does thing something that that he doesn't like Mike he goes after them so then it becomes. You can imagine that growing into something more. Because then he's attacking a Republican. What's Mitch McConnell? Say about that and so on and so forth so so It's it's it's just as I say a possibility for destabilization. I want to touch emily on. What is potentially the most alarming alarming aspect of the vote on Tuesday which is as of Wednesday actually? Didn't look this morning. There was there was intimations hints even open statements from Republican legislators in Kentucky that they might not accept the results of that gubernatorial election. And there's a the one of the leaders in the Republican House. This is trying to conflict this into a contested election. which was you know about five thousand votes separating the the Democrat and Republican And the stunning the possibility that the how the Kentucky legislature which is dominated by Republicans might try to overturn the popular vote. I actually don't think this will succeed. Eight for a couple of even if they make real push it at which there's no sign they're going to one is Bevin has been a lousy governor even for Republicans. He's made them more unpopular. He's been unpopular blur himself. So why keep them in. Their second is actually fun to have a democratic governor of the rival party in some ways especially if you have a majority in the legislature. I just love. You can really mess with them and score points off of that person and that that's kind of good way to spend a couple of years sometimes so it's not. It's not that bad to be in the out party if you have the majority party in the legislature but also. I don't think it's effective to cheat in elections. After the fact I think it's very effective to suppress the votes in advance when it can be dressed step as some kind of principle of voter integrity but after the fact when the votes already counted the numbers are there it is not. I think it's going to look a lot like cheating. If they try to push uh-huh yeah would in fact be cheating and like deeply alarming. If this happened you know I will just note Kentucky already. Does one one thing to suppress the vote which is to close the polls at six PM. You know. I I think that you're right. This isn't GonNa go anywhere but the fact that it's even being discussed discussed it's just these signs. Were getting from states. I mean we've gotten them also from Wisconsin and of course like the Queen of this is North Carolina. Where if you don't like the way the game is being played you just like throw the board up into the air and all the pieces fall and some other place you just change the rules roles? You know I don't know enough about Kentucky Law to know how the governor's powers are distributed and who decides but you could really imagine this legislature trying to clip the wings of this new Democrat coming in in much the way that the North Carolina Republican dominated legislature has has done that for Roy. Cooper the governor there now let us turn my friends to the polls for the presidential campaign from one kind of Paul to another kind of Paul. There was a really really interesting poll in the New York. Times of Swing States John this week looking at how various Democratic presidential candidates might perform against President Trump and Wisconsin content Pennsylvania Michigan North Carolina Florida and Arizona. Interesting that Arizona is a very legit swing state in a way. That Ohio for example doesn't seem to be anymore why we're Democrats so agitated by the results of this poll and is it is this one poll significant it's Let's see how to pack. Okay so why are they agitated. Well they're agitated because Biden's only up by a couple of points over trump in these six states let's see sanders was up a little bit and and Warren was down so I think there was agitation for two reasons. One Biden up wasn't wasn't by as much as as people thought. Warren was down and three and this is the bigger point I think is a lot of people think. Stop looking at and thinking thinking about the election in that way stopped takes basically boiling the entire election down to six states full of larger shares of white working class voters because that's it's not what. The electorate is about an implicit in even doing the poll among some Democrats is the idea that that or they would argue that the Times poll kind of has its thumb on the scale in terms of this larger argument about whether the Democratic Party needs to quote unquote moderate to go for the kinds of voters in those six states or go go for.
