"Frank Lindsay's at the editor's desk on this Monday morning and along with Greg Herschel Plan manufacturer U. S. Senator Joe Manchin says he will not vote for the election reform bill passed by the House on Fox News Sunday that the West Virginia Democrats as he cannot support an 800 page overhaul of the American voting systems. A lot of great things. I agree in that piece of Legislation. But there's an awful lot of things that basically don't pertain directly to voting. ABC News Political analyst Steve Roberts is on our Cuomo, Newsline and Mansion has a lot of power right now, doesn't he, Steve? Well, he does, And you know, as angry as the Democrats are. Chill mansion, Let's remember. It's only because of Joe Manchin that Chuck Schumer is the majority leader. It's only because of Joe Manchin and all those Democrats or committee chairman. And, uh, He's the only kind of Democrat who can get elected in West Virginia, so sure they're very frustrated rated with him right now because he will not support That bill that voting rights bill as you just mentioned, but he's also the reason why they're in the majority in the first place. But doesn't he have the potential here to just basically killed the Biden agenda? To some extent, sure, but I don't think he's going to kill the whole agenda. I think he's willing to negotiate on things like infrastructure. Um, it is true. He has enormous power. It is true that he enjoys having that power. He loves being on national television. He loves being the center of attention. He's a former governor, Um, and he's loving it. But, uh He also has a point. When he in that clip you played that the bill that the Democrats are pushing is a very top heavy bill. It's 800 pages. This is not just a bill that would protect voting rights. This is a bill that contains a lot of liberal wish lists. Public financing of campaigns, uh, creating redistricting commissions that would set congressional boundaries and taking that out of the hands of legislatures. Um, it might. In many ways, the Liberals really overreached with that bill and created a top heavy bill. That, um uh, is much more difficult to get through. I've always believed that if the Democrats trimmed that bill down to one basic idea, Which is set federal standards for voting that counteracts the wave of voting bills. Passed by Republicans and legislatures around the country, which are very much designed To suppress voting if you turned it down to that one point said Dimension. Okay, uh, create a carve out in the filibuster rule. We're going to preserve the idea, but we're going to carve it out just for voting life. You might have had a shot at getting mentioned, but you're never going to get him. It's trying to pass a top heavy 800 page bill. All right, Steve, thanks for your time, as always.

That they say they need right away. So really, the focus from the administration was on trying to help them stand this just exploding public health situation. They're the next big part of this, of course, is vaccines, and the United States has said that they're going to spend some of the 60 million or 60 million doses of AstraZeneca abroad in India would be one of the countries that would get that, but there isn't a warehouse as they put it. Where 60 million doses they're just sitting right now. These are still in production. So the timeline on that is not quite clear when the U. S will be able to do that. The other big thing That's Prime Minister Modi, another world officials are saying is that the U. S should be waving vaccine patent protection so other countries could start making generic vaccines and that can help the efforts in India and also around the world. Is something that is being discussed right now. The United States trade records having conversations about this, and there could be some news in the coming days.

President Biden gets high marks on some of his top priorities, but Still, there are some warning signs for other parts of his agenda. ABC News Political analyst Steve Roberts is on our common news line. What is the polls show Steve Well, he just mentioned the violence, the handling of the virus issue. But the fact is that Americans were disillusioned with the way Donald Trump's handle that virus. It was a huge political asset for Joe Biden, and he's capitalized on that look. Extend out 1.9 spent $1.9 trillion On and folks in Seattle. When everyone else getting $1400 checks, you're gonna be popular. It's not as if people are sitting there and getting those checks and Cindy I'm going to send these checks back because this could fuel inflation or hurt the federal deficit. All the potential downsides of this policy. You're in the future and their intangible and the benefits of tangible. This is Politically golden and 72% support by his handling of of the virus. But as you point out and issue like the border, which has been subject to a lot of political attacks and frack, frankly, in my view mismanagement by the Biden administration You got 54% against his handling of the border and calling it a crisis, So it's a mixed bag. But you know, the Corona virus is one of those issues where Bye. Campaigned on that issue. He's made it his number One priority in Lee, so for his responses is certainly meeting with favorable feelings on the part of the American public. Raising any indications that some Republicans are more willing to come over and support him on some of his other major priorities. Well, that depends on, you know, biting himself at his press conference, trying to draw a distinction between Republicans in Congress and Republican voters, and I do think to some extent that's fair. You know he didn't get a single Republican vote. Um, uh, for his coronavirus package, But you've got, you know a sizable number of Republican voters. You know, when you got 72% of Americans being in favor of this response clearly that includes a lot of Republicans. So You gotta draw this distinction. The Republicans in Congress have decided to take a very firm and highly partisan line against a virus violently so far. On Biden and and the truth is that by himself while he talks a lot about unity and bipartisanship, decided not really to negotiate seriously with Republicans and pushed through. That coronavirus package just with Democratic votes. So yes around the country. He's getting some support from Republican voters, but not on Capitol Hill, Steve Thanks for your time.

So now they're actually moving on quicker than expected today. Then comes that vote a Rama. Called in Washington, another wonky thing here where Republicans Democrats, everybody can just put forward amendments to add to the bill. This is an attempt by the Republicans to try and add things and they would like to see included. They're not going to be successful with that, because, of course, they're in the minority truck somewhere and said they will work into through the weekend. Whatever it takes, But the expectation is we could see a final vote on this. Tomorrow Saturday, not the end of the road. Of course, it has to go to the back to the House for approval before it can get to the president's desk for his signature. I think most Americans were focused on getting their money. Well, there have been a few tweaks to that. What's the latest? And they were changes this week to win over moderate Democrats. Of course, the $15 an hour minimum wage was thrown out of the Senate version, but also the direct payments to Americans are more strict income limits. $1400 check will go out to those making up to $75,000 a year. It's a smaller amount that will go to those making up the 80,000 couple of 160,000, but that's it.

"47 right now, Greg, her shoulder Amanda Factor. It's the Comal Morning News. Along with Frank Lindsay at the editor's desk, The House is preparing to send the article of impeachment against former President Trump to the Senate today. That article accuses Trump of inciting the violent mob that stormed the U. S Capitol earlier this month. The Senate's impeachment trial is slated to begin the week of February. 8th. There's a brand new ABC News Ipsos poll just out, and it shows that most Americans regard President Joe Biden Highly ABC News political analyst Steve Roberts is on our co Moh news line. One of the numbers tell us, Steve It's interesting because about 69% tell us That they approve of the way by candle, the covert pandemic Now that's not a big surprise, because really comes mishandling of Cove. It might be the single biggest reason he lost the election. But Biden's approach of saying Let's work together. Let's meet this challenge was a certain amount of national unity. Is playing well with the American public, but that's pretty fragile and superficial. You already see you lent it today. The impeachment articles were being transmitted to the Senate. Well, there's building opposition there among Republicans to the whole idea of impeachment. There's building opposition to Biden's $1.9 billion stimulus package, negative reviews to his proposals on immigration among Republicans, so there is a certain amount of good feeling spawned by the new president and just Calls for unity during his inaugural address, but right below the surface, those significant divisions are still there, Steve, do you realistically see enough Republicans voting for impeachment in the Senate to convict Donald Trump? Not even close. Actually, I think that the Republicans have found a way of ducking the whole question whether they approve of Donald Trump or not. If Donald Trump were still in office, I think their vote would be different. But Republicans now are saying, Look. Why even take the time of U. S senate with all of the other problems we have The guy's already left office. Some Republicans they're saying trying to convict him at this point is actually unconstitutional. And of course, the issue has never really been tested in our courts about whether it is in fact, constitutional to convict someone has already left office. So They found in a good argument a safe place without having to say publicly whether they approve or disapprove of the events of January 6th. And so the answer is no. I don't think they're going to come close to those 17 votes. There are rumblings that Trump wants to start a new political party thoughts. Well, I think that you know, Donald Trump is thrashing around trying to find a way. To stay relevant and you know, immediately, a former president loses a lot of his ability to command public attention. He's lost his Twitter account, which is his favorite mechanism for staying involved. Don't realize Don't think that talk of a third parties is reasonable. I think he will try to stay relevant Republican politics he will threaten to campaign against Republicans who have crossed him he'll threaten to campaign for Republicans who support him. He will try to continue to say things that will attract public attention and he will remain Lucky got 74 million votes, and there are about a third of Americans continue to be loyal Trump supporters, but his He's left office, a significantly damaged figure, not just because of January sex. But because of the whole way he handled the post election process and his fantasies about a new election being stolen away from him. And so he There's a lot of self inflicted political wounds there that have left him a significantly diminished figure.

"Morning news. Frank Lindsay's had the adverse desk mad with Greg Herschel time that the factor the U. S Capitol has been in a state of lockdown for the past few minutes. Announcement was played on the West Front of the Capitol, announcing A potential security threat. Capitol police told people inside and those outside for an inauguration rehearsal to lock down people inside were told to get away from windows and doors. Well, the word has just come a few minutes ago that it was due to a small fire several blocks away, was not believed to be a threat to the capital. Layers of security are still in effect in Washington, D. C ahead of the inauguration and that comes his massive protest set for the weekend did not materialize in the nation's capital. Joe Biden's inauguration is day after tomorrow. ABC News Political analyst Steve Roberts is with us this morning, and Steve I'm just amazed at the list of challenges that he is inheriting. What is? Where does he start? Well, you're quite right about that. And I think the most important number In a poll that we just have out this morning from ABC is 32. That's the number of Americans percentage of Americans who continue to believe that Joe Biden is not Legitimately elected president. That's just astounding 103 Americans. And why is that true because they have been said a steady diet of Ms and disinformation starting with the president. All of his enablers and supporters in talk radio and Fox News and various websites. There is no evidence none zero that this election was in any way rigged a fraudulent and yet This new president will face an electric of one industry believe he's not legitimate. And this is because Trump loyalists just refused to face face the facts. And how do you deal with that? Well, I think you you're not going to this way, the hard court but you do have the possibility of reaching 10 15, Maybe 20% of Americans who have their doubts about President Trump. He's a deeply damaged figure. His approval rating is down to 29% in the Pew poll. So Biden is going to reach this week to try to Com The temperatures and try toe preach a a doctrine of national unity. But it's going to be very difficult. What about President Trump in the possibility he will still pardon himself? Well, if he pardons himself, then he's kind of admitting he's committed a crime. And so he has a very difficult problem. It also would be wildly unpopular. Our polls show that 68% of Americans believe he should not pardon himself. But that hasn't stopped come before, but we do know That Donald Trump is leaving office as a deeply damaged and diminished figure Pews poll this week table berating down to 29%, but more importantly, about two thirds of Americans say they do not want him. To be a major figure in American politics going forward. Now that is not that doesn't affect his hard core base of support might be about 30%, but the majority of Americans very clear majority of Americans. Do not want Donald Trump to be a major figure going forward, and this is largely the result of self inflicted wounds and the way he has behaved since the election, where he's disillusioned and damaged his reputation, even with people who voted for me, Thank you for your thoughts this morning ABC News political analyst Steve Roberts. It comes as that new ABC poll also shows two thirds of Americans. Approve of the way Joe Biden has handled the transition. Come on these times 7 50 time.

But, you know, I think it's sort of scary that somebody actually was able to hack into Twitter since it's really such an important news feed. As we all know, it's also a little scary since we're less than four months away from a major national election. That's something a hack like this could happen. Are you worried about that? Of course. Keep in mind. I don't We don't know, of course, but the attack was probably just by a cyber criminal hacker. Because he or she was going after money. For the money to be sent via Bitcoin.
