Why Pennsylvania is Key Among Battleground States This Election

"President trump narrowly won Pennsylvania in two, thousand sixteen and the state is shaping up to be an even harder fought battleground this time. Around we turn now to our national political reporter John McCormack Hi John. Hi, thanks for having me. So John Pennsylvania is uniquely positioned even among the battleground states in terms of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent economic fallout. What can you tell us? Well, we did a data analysis looking at the unemployment compared to a year earlier and also the. Deaths per capita for every county in America what we found when we did that analysis was that a Pennsylvania among the battleground states has the largest proportion of counties that fall into both of those unfortunate pockets has a lot of counties that have unemployment rates that are in double digits much higher than a year ago because of the pandemic and it also. Has a good number of counties that have deaths per capita rates that are in the top twenty percent of all counties. So we we looked at both of these benchmarks to try to get a sense for you know which battleground state is sort of suffering the most pain right now related to the pandemic in Pennsylvania really stands out in in those rankings. Let's dig into some specific county as you call Bucks County in suburban Philadelphia a battleground within a battleground. Tell us more about that what's happening there? Yes. So the unemployment rate in in Bucks County, which is just outside of Philadelphia. It's nine point seven percent, and that's more than double what it was a year ago and we used your ago figures because there's a season -ality. Unemployment rates, and so we looked at what was the unemployment rate a year ago for the same month and then compared to that that month this year and bucks is a county that Democrats and Republicans have fought over very closely. In recent elections. Hillary Clinton wanted by eight tenths of one percentage point I was simply like three or four thousand votes in A. County that is home to about six, hundred, twenty, eight, thousand people, and so it is a place that gets a lot of attention. Every presidential election cycle it has an area called lower box, which is in the southern end of the county and is a little grittier more industrial and certainly more densely populated, and there's a lot of white working class voters in that area. You know really rallied around Donald. Trump. In two, thousand, sixteen in his campaign of course hopes that they'll rally around him again in this presidential election. So it's a big county. It's a complex county, has a real widespread in terms of soda sort of socio economics, and we'll be intensely fought over by the way former vice president Joe Biden will be going there on Saturday. We all know he hasn't been doing a lot of on the ground campaigning this summer and fall, but he's starting to do more of it and one of his stops this weekend will be in bucks. County. So that indicates it's important. You anticipated my next question. How are the dynamics you just described influencing how president trump and Joe Biden are approaching Pennsylvania especially in the final days of this election and how does that compare to what saw in the candidate approach to Pennsylvania in two? Thousand Sixteen Yeah Well Twenty Sixteen. There was a lot of emphasis on Pennsylvania as well. Hillary Clinton held her national political convention in the summer in Philadelphia. So that was an indication of how important the state was back then as well. Of course, president trump won the state very narrow sort of as part of his you know northern Great Lakes, trifecta Pennsylvania Michigan Wisconsin that really sealed the presidency for 'em and So it's important. Again, this time Joe Biden's headquarters is in his campaign headquarters is in Philadelphia, and when you look at the the television reservations that are in place for both campaigns between now and the election Pennsylvania on a dollars per electoral vote basis in other words if you look at all the advertising spending that's going to be going on in Pennsylvania and the next week and a half if you then divide by how many electoral votes each state has and sort of do the math on that Pennsylvania ranks right at the top specially for Joe Biden in terms of places where he's going to put a lot of dollars on television screens in the coming days. So John Given, everything we've just talked about just how key is Pennsylvania going to be in this election let's arguably the most important battleground state. Now obviously, Florida's is also very important twenty seven electoral votes, but Pennsylvania has twenty and it's sort of viewed as critical for both of these candidates from Vice President Joe Biden is from Pennsylvania. You know if if he can't win the state that was born in that, that does have a lot of sort of working class that he's trying to appeal to that could be pretty telling in terms of what happens on election night. So it'll be very much watched. Some of the outside groups that are trying to influence the presidential race they sorta described Pennsylvania as. Camel's back. They feel like if if trump can't win Pennsylvania then there's really probably know path for him. It's always dangerous to say those sorts of things because you know like anything there can be surprises in in different combinations of these states can add up to the two hundred and seventy that you need to win. But certainly, a lot of eyes will be on Pennsylvania and a lot of resources and time will be going into the state in the next week and a half before the Election Wall Street. Journal. National, political reporter John, McCormick John Thank you so much for being here today.

"To Frank on, Kayla newsworthy. Morning, Frank. How are you? How you guys doing Good. Good. Yeah, conversation. I used to listen the other station, but I appreciate back to guys who are more realistic amounts of given doom and gloom. Um That being said. I just sometimes I wonder like a fan. I mean, I enjoy this coaching staff and the village teams headed in the right direction over last coaching staff dance, Jos. But on this morning at some point, you know, Sandra came in with the idea of, you know, eliminating losses with death by inches, and I'm just wondering as a fan like you know, when, when my expectation level, you know, appoint were expected to win those games. Worse is what's going on. It's going on now, you know? Well, I mean, I think you know of, I think and Frank, Thanks for the call. I think the expectations of fans sometimes unrealistic. But you gotta find ways to win games again. It's it's a bottom line business. Nobody knows that better than big fan join all the coaches out there with the UC Health Centre and they've been you know they've been right there, but they haven't found ways to win. I wouldn't say Um I mean, I think they played in spurts well enough to win yesterday, but the disappointing thing I mean, when it appeared like Rick and I talked about this during a break, you know when they're down 17 to 3 late second, I'm thinking OK there without drew lock. This thing could get away from him, and it could wind up like 38 13, But to their credit, they hung in there. The offense made a few plays in the defence had a couple of turnovers. The man When you get down there 26 21 with two minutes to go third down, and to me, That's that's where you have to execute. You've got to find a way to get that first and then take four shots in the end zone. Tau win a game. I mean, how great a win would that have been for them? And you said, nobody cares that you got injuries. It's the National Football League. But it does factor into the game. There's no doubt about that. Especially when your quarterback goes out in the way they battled back into that game. They really there was there was a time there. I thought We're gonna win this game. Me two. I think we both thought that a two and Also keep in mind one thing Broncos fans. They just played two good teams. Both those teams are going to be in the playoffs this year, Tennessee in Pittsburgh. Now they play another good team coming up this week in Tampa Bay, but those first two games I think they're both going to be playoff teams this year. You know Tennessee went to the title game last year. So it's not like they're playing the slugs of the National Football League. They're playing good football teams. And dealing with the injury situation in there very competitive. In fact, I really should have won the first game Coulda won yesterday. What it could've should've right there. There's there's no excuse, but I think maybe some fans are being a little hard right now on coach Fangio Driscoll, by the way in relief, a drew lock and again will hopefully get more information today on the severity of the injury. Jeff Driscoll was 18 to 34 256 years. Two touchdowns. One pick the pick went right through court. Sutton's hands, So that wasn't on Driscoll. But You have to be a long term or long time. Bronco fans remember John McCormick John was the quarterback of the Broncos back in the mid sixties. So now with Driscoll's performance yesterday He and John McCormick are the only two quarterbacks in franchise history throw for at least 250 yards in multiple touchdowns in a game that they did not start. So I do think there are some positives with the way Driscoll played. He was sacked seven times. I You know, I think a couple of those, if not more, probably on him. It might be a simple as the play on the first and goal from the four right if you don't like it, and I think if you just even a little more patient, you've got two guys wide open. That's going to be a touchdown. But then if you don't like it, throw the ball away. Don't don't take a sack back the 10 almost 11 yard line and then the last one on fourth and two as the Broncos we're tryingto. Score. What would have been the winning touchdown? I mean, that that's maybe, and again. This is conjecture on my part may be a simple is when when Pittsburgh showed you what they were going to do. Terril Edmunds is one thing because they disguise as well as any team, but Edmonds walked up. He's on the line of scrimmage to the quarterback's front side. So you in on that particular Um, blitz pick up. The centre Lloyd Cushion Berry. They slide left. So it's either the quarterback changing the protection. Or you've gotta have a hot receiver in this case, Melvin Gordon, and neither any of those two things happen so easy for me to sit back and after the game, talk about that, But that's that's the That's the reality of that particular play. 9 43, Dave, Rick and Kathy within Jeff in Denver Joins us some K away, Jeff Hey, guys. Hey, I was just wondering, I think it's time to bring out the secret weapon. That's Ted Bundy. Ted Bundy from married with Children would be a great have him onto the guests and get his analysis of the football season. You mean album? Do you know Ted Bundy? You kind of confused me a little of the serial killer Alba's report, So I think it'd be funny to have him on as a guest. For his football wouldn't fund your butt with the desert bronchus. I think they ought to just go out and do some flea flickers in stuff like that. No team's going to expect from brewski. Thank you, Jeff Flea flickers Statue of Liberty. Let's throw some of those in there. That's funny Victim Jo and a couple of minutes by the way. Was scheduled 10 30 going to join us said about 9 45 from the 719321. Hasn't Driscoll been in the league long enough for the game long enough to avoid some of the sacks he took yesterday. Apart from that? I thought he had a pretty good game for a backup. Yeah, You know what? Absolutely You know what, though?.

"We have friends over. Whatever I'll go to my jazz collection I especially love thelonious. Monk's blue note sessions as sort about closing epitaph for the day. You know when I'm ready to wind down and put on some thelonious monk he just makes me happy and I just think he's such an idiosyncratic wonderful artists and I would say the same about Ornette Coleman so those are my kind of to go to's when I want to listen to something just for the pure joy of it see. I've made this joke before I just figure when I grow up and retire then I will Begin to dig deeper into jazz beyond my Coltrane box. And the occasional mingas Steve. I would say I go to vinyl right when I am done listening to everything. This usually happens right around the holidays right I I. I go back to everything. I've been listening to all year. Some of which we've reviewed on the show and some of which we haven't I've got the running list. I'm trying to figure out my best of whatever year then we're done with that. 'cause we're taped by Christmas and then I start cooking right and the whole time. I'm cooking for the holidays. I'm listening to vinyl albums that I just love that I would feel guilty listening to Any other time of the year because I should be listening to new music right so this is when I go back to the Neil young or the wire or the velvet underground often often. I've I've bought them on vinyl. I'm revisiting how great they sound on. Vinyl Hi my name's John McCormick and my question for you to professional music. Critics is house. You're hearing and what do you do to protect it? I said how's your hearing. I'm going to Johnny that joke. What years ago I went to see the audiologist done it at northwestern which is our health system and And you're hearing Jackson. I had high end hearing loss and I invested in a great set of musicians earplugs. That's actually the name Developed by a Some audiologist in Chicago for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. What's great about it is these plugs. Is they lower the volume level without cutting any frequency So you get the full spectrum of live music or in my case when I primarily wear them is when I'm sitting behind the drums because that those monitors to write those lasting back at you look I. I don't even have anything there. I let the boys on stage with my band carry the volume but I rarely have needed them at concerts. I I've found that With certain exceptions. Like my bloody Valentine. Okay Certainly not a live festivals. The volume is never that bad so I always have them in my pocket at a concert. Don't always wear them always wear them when I play the drums. And I don't think my hearing has eroded to Bailey on probably overdue to go back. Yeah it's funny. You should bring up my bloody Valentine because I do remember at least on their last Swing through town. They passed out of your plugs door and they may have done that back in the early nineties. When I saw the first time I think no neck they needed to do they did not do it and I have to say. Do not use me as a role model for how to handle your hearing concerts. Because I was of the mind that you know I'm never going to die. I'm never going to lose. My hearing may be be young and vital forever and I also like the physicality of that sound going through me. A nagging back. I love that sort of feel of the music being physical You know making a physical impression on me. Well as you know something that my brain could Xuan but later on it like you check that head to head the earn check high end. Hearing loss started wearing earplugs the earplug The technology has improved so much in terms of just being able to get it. I'm GonNa let it out of Chicago and without losing that. Sort of visceral appeal. So don't do this at home. Kids get ear plugs and save your hearing. It's not reversible. You can't get it built. Exactly we'RE GONNA turn now to our tallest producer Mr Andrew Gale. Okay Jimmy Greg. These are not my questions. I have no questions for you. I know everything about you that I want to know. But so we have a question from Janet who is actually co worker here at WBZ and she wants to know who is your favorite musician or band. And how did they inspire you? Well I'll have to go to The velvet underground onto I got a chair in my office. That called underground share. My wife had an artist. It's a beautiful piece of are. You can actually see it if you care to look at my website. There's a picture of it on them. Somewhat disrespectful.

"Spending influx extends beyond hotel rooms though the things like political advertising event production office space rental cars restaurants voter databases John McCormick national political reporter at the Wall Street journal had a front row seat watching it unfold John what did you see the big guy economic boom that for for deployment the capital city here in Iowa but really statewide I mean brings tens of millions of dollars into the state probably you know one of the biggest things is advertising so there's been more than sixty million dollars spent in the past year in in Iowa for about a presidential candidate but also trickle down but it's good for the hotel change it's good for restaurants and and that sort of trickle down to la to different parts of the economy goodness and that is even after what it within the last four years since the last primaries des Moines has added hotel rooms right yeah I mean this is not a a small city it's ranked a hundred and first nationally in terms of population the hospitality industry folks told me they've added six hundred and forty rooms since the last Iowa caucuses in twenty sixteen but it's still not enough to speak with John McCormick national political reporter for the Wall Street journal he's in Iowa hi so we talk about hotel rooms without something like the price of a steak restaurants whose price is a bit too fortunately they don't raise the prices and you can you can get a you know very good restaurant in downtown des Moines but there's a place call but you know one chop house it's sort of the premier expense account steak house in downtown des Moines where you'll see lots of media and and politicians hanging out they say it's the busiest time of the year for the busiest time every four years so with all the money that pours into of the sea like the morning during the caucuses is the city able to use that as some sort of marketing platformer springboard to bring in more business say the other the other three years well they they say all the free media attention that they get because of the caucuses are are worth hundreds of millions of dollars if you were to buy that kind of coverage in the open market to advertise your your city or your state obviously that don't need to do that because they get a lot of free mentioned on TV and in newspapers of you know the more and and and Iowa is very valuable through the city folks here from eight thank from a marketing perspective obviously you know candidates head seem like they also have you know people digging into their pockets a little bit deeper every caucus season I've been covering the caucuses since nineteen ninety thousand or that that one register and this thing just grows and grows and grows every four years ago it's bigger and more people host these cattle call events they call more all candidates have to show up and you know speak for fifteen minutes seems like the number of those servants really exploded this the cycle as well it's almost like was like a series of Black Friday events you you made me think of your reference Elizabeth Warren's campaign like popped into a local subway restaurant drop like twelve hundred Bucks like has for a bunch of staffers for lunch or something well I I yeah I dug through some of the Federal Election Commission filings and I suspect that was for some kind of you know event that she hosted with supporters but yeah there's there's spending spoke small and large I mention the television advertising which runs into the tens of millions of dollars but you know small things here and there a little bit warm but two hundred and eighty dollars with the state fair tickets because yeah she had to go to space there and show up and bring some staff whether so it's it's it's very good for business it's one of the reasons Iowa and New Hampshire both fight so hard to keep their first and second status on the nomination calendar because it it's a real well windfall for both of the states I I'll even to a greater extent than New Hampshire one is think about that yeah so if I made a California were to somehow muscle its way to the topic you could really hurt Iowa I guess if it were to follow what I'm the third or fourth maybe on the caucus slash primary list yeah well California gonna be part of super Tuesday March third so they are near the front but they're not at the very front and of course one of the arguments that Iowa New Hampshire make for themselves that their small you can do retail politics here yes you might have to buy some television advertising but a lot cheaper than if you had to buy in Florida or California huge state with very expensive and many media market that's been part of their argument for keeping their status as well is that even if prices are you know tricking up they they still are fairly affordable place for a a politician and do business and you know somebody who doesn't have a lot of course standing still can you know work work the state real hard and make a name for themselves is John John McCormack national political reporter at the Wall Street journal.

"You can follow rod Eliana. Why Johnson on the on the Twitter's Eliana? Good morning to you. What did you make of the? Cavenaugh circus yesterday. It was pretty remarkable. I mean, I questioned whether this will be the sort of the new normal of supreme court confirmation hearings and sort of a more partisan than era in Washington DC. But it seemed to me all along that I think his confirmation is a given. And that I think Democrats were using this Cory Booker and calmly Harris Hugh break out for twenty twenty and the the hearings really aren't about cabinet. The various observation from John McCormick at the weekly standard. Was these are not the tactics one users. If there is a prayer of flipping, Susan Collins or Lisa Murkowski or rand Paul. You do not attack the comedy of the Senate with seventy interruptions, if you actually hope to flip a Republican member of the majority. Do you agree with McCormack's assessment? I'm not sure about that. But I think I mean, I think that Democrats. No, he's going to be confirmed. And so the the hearings really aren't aren't about, you know, finding a major issue, and, you know, making the case to Republic to Republican or other Democrats about his fitness for the office. They're they're about other things than hands. I think the the spectacle, the energizing the last of the democratic base that we saw yesterday or providing a forum for Booker and Harris to, you know, break out for twenty twenty and it was remarkable. I mean, I have the nominee didn't even make his opening statement and kill several hours into that hearing yesterday. It is a remarkable bad display for the world.
