She has Lots of set about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and his horrific leadership in New York with them and then at 8 35. Josh Crasher joins us from National Journal's talk about Joe Biden and his failures to be bipartisan. They continue. I'm Vince colonies alongside Mary Walter. Always capable of being bipartisan. Oh, you're so sweet. Thank you. Good morning, Joe Biden and, of course, the administration's flushing out. And they're either you're going to start to see some names here. Some names that you recognize. Shall we go through some of them Just for fun. Let's start with Jake Sullivan, Jake Sullivan in the Biden administration as Biden's national security advisor. Now, why does that name sound familiar? Well, he had his name popped up a lot during the Hillary Clinton email. Scandal. Remember that first of all, he in? 08 was an adviser to Hillary Clinton during the primary cycle, And then he went back to President Barack Obama's general election campaign, and he may be prepared both Clinton Obama for debates he worked in the Obama administration is deputy assistant to the president and national security adviser to The vice president Joe Biden. So Joe Biden knows him and Joe Bynes bringing back people he knows. Have you noticed that like people he knows people he worked with. He's bringing them all back to me. He started the drummer that they passed around. He just keeps playing for all the different bands. Yeah, he left administration in August 2014 to teach yet Yale Law School on Now he's over at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, but he his knee Came up a lot during the pedestrians imparted the Podesta emails released by Wikileaks during the 2016 presidential election cycle. We all remember that, Hey, questioned if Democrat primary candidate Martin O'Malley's 100% clean energy by 2050 Pant plan was realistic, that was one of the emails that came out and after the election, he confessed to feeling quote a keen sense of responsibility for Hillary Clinton's defeat. Uh, on s own under November 22nd of 2020. He was announced as I said to be the national security advisor for Joe Biden and he loves war, too. By the way, he's a big, you know, Arm the Syrian rebels guy. He's like he's He's that when we talk about like war hawks and people who get us in a messy foreign entanglements, Jake Sullivan is straight out of central casting for that. Okay. Well, that's good. Maybe one too many video games. Yeah, he loves sending Americans off the work. Great. Lovely. Fantastic. All right. Well, let's move on. Let's go to Undersecretary of State Victoria Nuland. She had ties to why do we know her name? Christopher Steele and Russia, Russia Russia She's a former assistant secretary of state on She said. I did not. I actively chose not to be part of that briefing well in February of last year, she told space, the nation that in 2016 Steel Steel quote past two of four pages off short points of what he was finding in our immediate reaction to it was, this is not in our purview, but rather a matter for the FBI. So she knew a lot more than what she was saying when it came to Christopher Steele. So she was involved, and that's how we know her name because she was involved in that whole scandal and farm or as I said, But you know, this is what's so maddening to be on a side note here when it comes to this whole Christopher Steele dossier spying on President Trump All of that there's so much that keeps coming out of people who lied under oath. Uh huh. And none of them go to jail, and none of them are punished. Kevin Kline Smith. Probation if he had an R, after his neighbor was associated with Trump. He be cooling his feet in in jail for for many, many months. That's for sure, especially when you had trump affiliates who were charged with laws that don't even get charged Traditionally in Washington, Foreign Agent Registration Act type things. I mean, like they're people who literally are doing jail time for things that people have done in Washington forever. But because they were says he'd with Trump. They got busted. And now, as you said, I mean, it really comes down to who's what's party. Are you working to the advantage of? If it's the Democrats? The likeliness of you facing any meaningful punishment goes down substantially. And Victoria Nuland you're just talking about. She was one of the key boosters of foreign disinformation. She facilitated Russian lies about Donald Trump, infecting the United States government in order to undermine the legitimacy of a duly elected presidency for years. So all of this talk about like threats to democracy and fermenting chaos is spreading disinformation. Victoria Nolan was a central figure in that very act. Now she's being rewarded. Yet again. Yeah. And, of course and and Susan rice. We know her, which is why you really, really want to spend a lot of time on Susan Wright. She have Benghazi and it was a video and she made the rounds of all those morning talk shows and perpetuated that lie. She's back as well, of course. Yeah, And let's just goes on and on and on and very quickly. One Maura name. You don't know Julin, A porter. She's the State Department's deputy spokesperson. And in 2016 and a Facebook post. She claimed that the largest threat to the U. S National security are the cops. Yeah, So now, she said the State Department. That's great. That's great. I'm glad glad she'll be representing us. It's for the for the entire planet, telling people that you know the real problem are people who enforce the law in the United States. It's going to be a really, really, really, really long, four years. That's all I'm going to say 5 43 w E Mail.

"If you're just getting up how it Mr. Lincoln shout on the good stuff. That's not true. Because you know, why I'm Mary Walter here with Josh crasher who's sitting in the safer, Vince Collines and right now, we are going to be joined by Tom Bevan, the president of real clear politics with some twenty twenty polling news, Tom. Thank you so much for taking the time to join us. I have a question are there. Twenty one or twenty two Democrats currently in in the running two hundred. Come to come. I think we're I think we're twenty I don't even know anymore. Twenty one twenty two. I've lost track. When you said there are more to come who else. Are we looking at? A couple of other names that are built Blasios on a couple of names that are out there around are still considering how or why? But, but you know, we may we may still have one or two left out there. Yeah. I would I personally would like to see Bill de Blasio enter because it will be such a phenomenal failure. And a repudiation of everything that he's done to New York City. It would be wonderful because maybe maybe he needs that wakeup call. You had to Blasios might be. I don't think it's own campaign advisors. Want him to leave New York to go to Iowa New Hampshire, but I'm struck by? You have all the averages which I use every day to figure out who's on top. And who's not Joe Biden his dominating the national Poland forty percent than a morning console poll, you have met thirty six point eight on the average. But it's a lot closer in Iowa and New Hampshire. Should we be calling Joe Biden a prohibitive front runner? Or is this race a lot closer than it? Looks. I mean, look, I think he's a front runner for sure. But I do think there's an awful lot of attention be paid the national polls, which is a mistake because the next. Don't matter. They certainly don't matter at this point in time needs to be focused on the states that matter and again still so much race to be run. We haven't even had a debate yet. But but you're right. And I tweeted out the other day that, you know, his lead in the national polls is massive. But it's a lot closer in some states. I think he's up about four points or was yesterday in our Republic average in Iowa and a single point in New Hampshire, and I saw fire police and could had him pretty good leads in both of those states. But by large the races a lot closer, Wayne when he started talking about states that matter and so I think he's a front runner. I don't think you think question about that. But not you know, I wouldn't use the term for and certainly, you know, Joe Biden is always had I think people talked about him having glass jaw right? He's done. This a couple of times he hasn't company where close. To winning the presidency or winning the nomination different era, obviously different time and different situation. But, but Nevertheless, I think there's there's an awful lot of race to be run yet. You've got Bernie Sanders and solidly in second. In each one of these polls, Iowa New Hampshire and the national polls. Why is very second is this because of what Hillary half would Hillary did to him last time around. So there there's a love of him for that is it because the country is ready for us to embrace a socialist wise is Bernie second. Yeah. Comes to the race with with a group of of you know, really committed folks they with him last time with this time. I think his his appeal is is, you know, fairly deep, but not necessarily that wide. And you know, I mean, you look back to like I mean, Ron Paul is a good example in didn't have the same kind of support. But every time Ron Paul without running at the same set of folks that were at really passionate about him and burning has that on the democratic side. Of course is whether whether you can appeal enough to women on the nation, that's sort of a question. I gotta say, you know, I've talked to folks I mean, I do a lot we spent a lot of time. Josh a lot of time talking about point twenty and I can't find anybody who who thinks that, you know, some people think the Biden is going to be the nominee. Obviously, not some people think Bernie could women on suffered other states. No chance, you know, chance chanson in held to do that. And I think three pretty wide open. I really do. I mean for for all the folks who are languishing at the in the you know, five four percent range. We haven't even this is like a marathon. And we're had second mile or something. I mean, I think these debates are going to matter a lot this summer up. Democrats who do you think in that second tier of candidates has the most potential to have a breakout moment and get into that that that I hear become a front runner. Yeah. That's a great question. Putin his sort of had his moment and seems to be receding little bit. But the guy who who really seems like he could profit from stage because he he does seem to answer questions, you know, gives gives answers to questions he doesn't speak in flat a twos in cliches like someone like fatal or maybe even Booker. Authentic. That's one thing that has has really going for him. And so I still would probably look at hand to really have have one of those moments. You're commonly Harris could never moment with Orin could have a a moment on the stage evenly lesser known candidates to do you ever? Do you think back to twenty sixteen about how much the debate particularly for Marco Rubio? And what happened in your answer up until that debate? Mansur people were were, you know, raving about how great Margaret was on the debate stage, and how nimble he was your battleship. And just like that he went from being this sort of great Vader to the robot and his candidacy was dead. So it it really doesn't matter. We could see we can see fireworks around this is so fascinating. It's going to be so interesting to see I cannot wait. Until the debates start. I'm I'm going to eat more popcorn in the next year and a half. Then I think I've ever eaten in my entire life. And I cannot wait to see how this how this shakes out and how well each one of these candidates does because I'm sure they're going to be some incredible moments in lots of surprises. Tom. Thank you for previewing for us. Really? Appreciate you. Joining us. Thank you, eight eight forty four WMA L A new poll says more Americans approve of President Trump than they do the big media..

"Mary, Walter. And I'm here at Josh crasher who is here sitting in for Vince colonies, and thank you so much for joining us. Josh freesheet it for it to be on the show. I right now joining us. His Henry Olsen is the Washington Post columnist senior fellow at the ethics and public policy center. Henry good morning and welcome to mornings on the pleasure to have you here. Okay. So you have a column out about the economy. And if the economy keeps the momentum that occurrence has which is fantastic you say the twenty twenty is going to be the president's to lose. My first question is perceptions king perception's reality and a lot of Americans because of the media, I think because they downplay the economy because they really don't don't give the credit that the president should get the perception of a lot of Americans is is. Yeah, the economy's good, but they don't necessarily give the president that credit. And I also don't think it is as rip roaring. The perception is is rip roaring as the economy is what do you think? I think that. There's a lot of antipathy toward the President Trump. But there's also an a strong sense in polls that Trump gets credit for the economy. The problem is that right now, they're not making that the significant part of their analysis of Trump that Trump gets much higher job approval ratings for the economy, then it gets overall. But the question is going to be whether that's going to be the case going into twenty twenty especially when they're taking a look at Democrats and comparing Trump to the Democrats, and it could very well be that the weight of the economy starts to move up Trump's job approval ratings up the closer we actually get to voting. Henry good to have you on the show. What how much is the economy matter when it seems like voters are casting their ballots based on values issues, and even even the president is tweeting about immigration about about the mullahs report about a lot of other issues. He's not talking about the strong state. Eight of the economy. What impact you think that has when people look at the economy and make a judgment about their their election choices? I think that's a big problem that the president is having is what he's not doing is playing into a strength and particularly with respect to the mall report. He's essentially agreeing with the Democrats that the questions in the report or the questions around that are the important ones. He should be talking more about his strength and trying to change and frame the issues that people will be considering. So that's one of the reasons why I think he gets credit for the economy, but he doesn't get as high job approval overall because he's not trying to make it a larger issue in people's calculus during the last election. You had quite a few minority groups cross over and vote for this president you had a significant number of African Americans insignificant number of Hispanics crossover vote for this president since then though the drum that has been banged is he's a racist racist. He's raises. Does he win them over to keep them based on the economy? And it does he win any more over based on the economy. I think he could very well win a higher share because fan voting twenty twenty as a result of the economy that you've got in twenty eighteen Trump doing much better or not trumpet Republicans doing better on Hispanic groups than you would have expected given what the media is talking about. And the fact is and twenty twenty or twenty sixteen Trump did better among Hispanics despite all of the media hype them at Romney did coding to the exit poll, and it wouldn't surprise me. If Trump got thirty five percent, maybe thirty eight percent of the Tino vote. Couple more percent of the African American vote in that's could be crucial to his re-election campaign states in the mid west and particularly in states in the south west Henry, give us your assessment of Joe Biden as a as a possible challenger to President Trump. And I imagine if he runs the economy is going to be a big issue. Issue. And we think that he might be the best candidate Democrats think he's the best candidate to take on the president. But he's going to have to deal with with the slow growing Obama economy, and that's going to be a big dividing line between between himself and the president. I think that's something that the president would be very wise to point out, which is the whole reason that people picked the president over the president could argue that is because Joe Biden and Barack Obama had eight years to fix the economy, and for many people it wasn't fixed. I think that Biden on paper is a strong candidate. But lots of people lots of candidates look good on paper. And you have to see how they run when the pressure's on and Biden may have a good bump in the polls right now, but they're still a year and a half to go, and we don't know how he's gonna react to Graddick pressure. And we certainly don't know how he's gonna react to Trump pressure. And the economy's going to be. One main pressure point based on exactly what you just said that the Joe Biden and Barack Obama had eight years to fix the economy is that exactly why we're starting to hear people take away from this president in the economy on the left, and they're saying, well, this is President Obama's economy. It started to recover you saw that you saw employment start to get better under this under President Obama towards the end of his presidency. President Trump is just building on this. This is Obama's economy. Yeah. Well, they would love to take the credit away from him. But the fact is that for millions of people the economy had not recovered at the end of the Obama administration. And those are the people who are coming to work now to the people who are getting jobs under the Trump Connie, and those are the people whose wages are going up for the first time that the Obama economy, even if you had a job your wages weren't going up faster than inflation. And I think that's something. That Trump will particularly with voters who are open to his argument win that argument on because these people have lived through that Obama Konami and say, hey, things are better for me than they were three years ago. Henry you're not the only one predicting from reelection in your column, you talk about a bunch of political scientists who have these these complex models that also show Trump as a pretty solid favorite to to win a second term. But Trump seems to break all the rules political science rules campaign rules, you name it. How confident are you that these these models? These academic models really are accurate. I think he academic models point to something. I don't think that they point to the I don't think they are as accurate as they often portray themselves as for me, the model that I looked at the Alan Abramowitz time for tomorrow was telling because it shows strong economy would overcome even a negative job approval rating. I'm not one hundred percent or even seventy five percent confidence. That's accurate. But I find it interesting that that is is something that's possible. And certainly when we know that alternately to win the electoral college, he doesn't need to win the popular vote. He's not that far away from having a job approval rating that would put him at fifty percent or over in key states. Even if he's underwater nationally and at the very well be that he moves from forty four to forty six percent nationally based on the economy over the next. Few months as people begin to consider what's really important in their lives. Well, Henry thank you so much for your nalysts. We appreciate that. And let's hope that this economy can continue to keep going at the pace. It is. Thank you so much for joining us Henry Olsen. Thank you. It's seven fifteen time for wwl, traffic.

"Tuesday morning. Seven thirty seven here on mornings on the mall. Joining us at eight oh five is. Josh crasher politics editor at the national journal with a preview of the state of the union and at eight fifteen John Russell, he's a councilman from pepper Virginia. Christian pregnancy center there in Culpeper was banned allies talked to him about that why find out Mary. Walter advance Collines, so good morning to you. Dr Steven Farnsworth joins us. Now, he's Virginia political analyst and professor of political science at the university of Mary Washington watching really closely all the drama in Richmond. What's going on there, Dr farms with good to have you, sir? Glad to be here. All right. So what stands out to you this morning? I mean, there are so many developments coming out as the Lieutenant governor has been accused of two thousand and four sexual assault, which he disputes. You have governor northern who's reportedly told CNN reportedly has been telling his cabinet members. He doesn't want to resign or else be branded as a racist for life. There's quite a bit going on in Virginia. Well, absolutely. And so there's a lot to sort out in the days ahead. I think that the the focus still needs to be on what the governor's going to do next because the governor's the one who's making decisions we're in the middle of a legislative session in Richmond. And so there are all kinds of decisions that are being made by the legislature. The governor's not able to make any real progress on any issues right now because of the uncertainty about whether he's going to stay and so the real question the first question of. Of course, is what is the governor going to do next is conversation with the cabinet suggests that that he's going to be sticking around at least for a few more days to try to get more information on this scandal. And you also have now the Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax floating, the idea that maybe this resurgence of an old sexual assault. Claim might have come to the surface, courtesy of the governor. How do they work together with that kind of tension between them? Well, I think that that there's a lot of anxiety and paranoia among people at the top level of government right now when these sort of things come out, there's always a question of who might have leaked it and why they might have leaked it at this time. But you know, I tend not to be one for conspiracy theories. I think that when there's a possibility that someone is going to move up. That's when some of these issues come up, it's not unlike the situation with with Cavanaugh where someone felt necessary to to speak up at at a at a crucial moment. And so I think that we still have of course, a an a lack of clarity about exactly what might have happened with respect to the head of governor two thousand four. So the other thing that that will be watching in Virginia in the day or two ahead is does this woman come forward. If she go on the record does she make some sort of public statement about what happened that might increase the pressure on the Lieutenant governor to to answer more fully that's right issue here as we see reports now from the Associated Press that a person close to. The legal teams involved. Here says that the woman who is accusing Fairfax has now retained Washington law firm, cats Marshall and banks the same law firm that represented Christine Blasi four during those cavenaugh hearing. So we may get a name and a public declaration by this woman. Very soon to be Dr Farnsworth for Democrats in Virginia. How dire is this situation? This is an election year for state elected positions. Yeah. Right now, the Republicans have narrow majorities in the house and in the Senate enrichment and with a couple of seats flipping you're going, you would see a democratic majority. And so the Democrats going into two thousand nineteen even a couple of weeks ago. We're extremely optimistic. The the Trump presidency has created significant problems for Republican incumbents in the suburbs. And there was some hope that that twenty nineteen in Virginia would for Democrats look like twenty eighteen where they picked up a number of seats in the house twenty seventeen whether they picked up seats in the house of delegates. But this obviously is is a big ranch in the Democrats hopes for twenty nineteen the best situation for the Democrats. Of course, would be for this to be resolved relatively quickly. If this is something that Virginia still talking about months from now, that's really going to torpedo the Democrats chances for legislative majorities, and so if the Republicans that the longer this goes, the more appealing it is for their prospects. Politically has this successfully wiped away the entire. Fire abortion issue. This late term abortion, some calling it infanticide issued that the governor spoke on just a couple of days before this came out. Well, it has it has really taken center stage to be sure I mean, I in all honesty, I talked to a reporter several times a day these last few days, and this is the first time the abortion issue is come up in any of these conversations. If you look at all the news stories, it's almost never being discussed. And so I think that that is one of the realities of of media and politics that that only one issue can be front and center at any one time. And now, of course, it is the governor's actions. All right. Let's say let's just game this out entirely imagine. If you've got the gov-, Lieutenant governor feld forever reason by scandal at that point. Then the the power move would go to the attorney general's that right? That's right. If the if the governor resigns and the attorney, and no ten governor also resigned, then the attorney general is next in line. There is the one possible scenario where the governor resigned Lieutenant governor. Governor they that Lieutenant governor acting governor then would be able to appoint a Lieutenant governor, and it'd be a special election. So there are are permutations of that scenario, but the most likely possibility if you were wanting to speculate about both the governor and Lieutenant governor leaving office that would leave the attorney general is acting governor, it's an amazing situation. And are there any other deep ramifications for Democrats, especially if they lose control in the state legislature owing tall this scandal when it comes to redistricting or any of the important things that politics measures itself on each year? Well, I think one of the consequences of this scandal may very well. Be a reconsideration of a lot of issues relating to to raise in Virginia. The question of the monuments, of course, are always very visible in Virginia politics, the question of renaming parks, I think there are potential issues that that really extend far beyond this particular moment for for governor north. Man. Who knows there may be other politicians who have embarrassing photographs from their years as as college students or graduate students, and those pictures are going to be discovered by the opposition researchers for candidates going forward. And so we may very well be looking at the start of a very significant reconsideration of race in Virginia. Yeah, that's right. And as a part of governor Northerns penance should he stay in office. There's no question. He's going to accelerate on changing so many of those names statues where he gets an opportunity to Dr Steven Farnsworth. Really? Appreciate your insight on all of us this morning. Thank you. Good morning. All right. Seven forty four. Wwl snow on the ground frost on the windows chill in the air. And yet the ironic thing about winter in West Virginia. Is just how warm it makes you feel. It's that incredible feeling that brings people back year after year in West Virginia,.

"Ralph resign people calling on Ralph northern to resign. His post as governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia in light of the yearbook photo controversy that has absolutely debilitated his governorship over the last few days that yearbook photo Ken coming out that was from nineteen Eighty-four from his medical school. It was revealed that has that photo of a Ku Klux Klan member next to a man dressed in black face. The two of them looking like they're dressing up for some sort of costume party or something and appearing on his yearbook page. He has he I took credit for it. We've talked about that life that he's a credit for that photo. And for appearing in on Friday. On Saturday Saturday. He subsequently changed. His story said that actually no I wasn't in the photo. And I never actually thought I was in the photo to begin with. Instead he's apologetic for the photo appearing on his page, although he did cop to a one thousand nine hundred eighty four black face event. He wore black face portraying Michael Jackson at a dance competition. He also says he would not answer the question of whether or not he can still moonwalk reporters close has. Can you still moonwalk in he considered it? It looked like he was going to moonwalk, but his wife who has been dutifully standing by his side told him that would not be appropriate. Given the circumstances. His wife, by the way. Apparently, according to the available reporting is one of the chief backers who's pushing him to stay in office as he has an Haase a bit over whether or not he will resign. His post this pressure on him by almost every publicly elected democrat public official who can possibly stand in front of a microphone has called for raff. Norm to resign from top to bottom. Nancy Pelosi everybody, Planned Parenthood, even Kathy tram. The woman who got everything TRAN rather who got the week started last week with her third. Trimester abortion Bill that said, it'd be fine to abort Sheldon, all the way through labor. She she's the reason so much of this got started because then the questioning came for governor nor of them about. His views on abortion. He expressed very extreme views about children, and how you would leave a baby to die on the table. If doctor and mother might do that. And after the after the child was born and then subsequently we found out we spoke with the guy yesterday Patrick Kelly who released the photo of Ralph northern midnight yearbook. And he said that his source was pro-life and very disheartened by Ralph Northerns comments so disheartened that he decided it was important to get that photo onto the public. And now we're left with governor northern figuring out whether or not he's going to stay in office. The public has assessed all of this his popularity has plummeted for the most part forty one point net drop for Ralph northern forty-one points, that's across the electorate among Virginia voters all over this black-faced KKK scandal. And I bet you, of course, the abortion scale is baked into the numbers there as well. But his favorability among Democrats and Josh crasher who's gonna talk to us at eight oh five has been really paying attention to this his. Favorability. Among Democrats is still fifty twenty four fifty percent of Democrats are still siding with Ralph northern and issuing a favorable vote for him in this survey. So that it has not bottomed out with Democrats. Although in Virginia broadly, he's lost all confidence. Yes. But we've seen this this play out before in politics where you think a politician can never come back from something, and they do, and and I think right now that is the struggle that Ralph nor them has on his hands. You've got people telling me has to resign. And then you've got other people telling him, no, you have to hang in there, rehabilitate, your image and continue to govern. So he's been consulting with his cabinet. And as a result of that we've gotten some leaks out of those conversations. What those look like I say we in the media large has been picking it apart. Ryan nobles who is a guy who's with CNN says that a source told. Him that in yesterday morning's cabinet meeting where Ralph northern was regaling his cabinet to hold strong and to support him. He was asking his cabinet for time to clear his name. He said, I just need time to clear my name, and he was being asked. Well, how long how much time do you need how much time do you need to do that governor because this is pretty dramatic. You've got Democrats who are deeply worried about the state legislature. The state Senate coming up and the state house the house of delegates coming up in November because every single one of those seats is up for election in Virginia. There's elections for state legislature in two thousand nineteen it's both houses entirely centered on a four year term to house of delegates on two year terms for election. This is not good for Democrats have the governor being a situation where every single democrat is going to have to answer for his sins. Whatever they are from abortion to black face to the KKK all of it. They'll have to answer for it. He says he wants to stay in office right now to clear his name. Otherwise, he says I will be known as quote a racist for life. He is so worried about that label. Well, can you think of anything worse than than being labeled a racists in our country at this point in time? Is there is there any anything more denigrating anything more damning than that right now child molester? That's about it. That's I mean, but yeah, that's I think that you're right. I mean, that's that's about one of the worst possible things you could be known you can say molester. But we're which I which I agreed. However, think about it the same people calling for Ralph northern to resign over racism had no problem with the infanticide portion of this. You know what? I mean. That's a great point. So so, you know, I think they're more upset if they had to choose between a racist and a child molester, I think they're going to they're going to go with the child molester. I can't even do I'm sorry. I just think that the scarlet are right now is just so damning you wanna ruin somebody labeled them a racist. Yeah. Right now, it's it's fixed right to Ralph Northerns chess as he struggles to hold on. Amidst all of this a lot of drama over whether or not in the event he does resign. That somebody who's been accused of sexual salt will rise to the post sultana governor Justin Fairfax who's now batting away sexual assault allegations. We will get into the allegations. The fact that the media knew about them, but didn't publish them until now why that happened and what Justin Fairfax says is might be Ralph Northerns role in all of this in just a moment. Six fifteen now, wwl.

"You see if we can make all of our dreams, come true. Eight oh, five Mark Krikorian. We'll talk about immigration as we confront what's about to confront us, which is seven thousand people en route to our southern border, Vince Collines alongside Mary Walter and good morning. Speaking of those people on route to our borders, just saw an excellent movement. And a lotta times, I, you know, look at me and said, I laughed and I question the sources and that kind of thing, but we were we've been struggling with the word caravan. Like, I'm struggling with the word caravan because caravan to me, just, you know, evokes hijinks and fun laughter, and stopping to, you know, tailgate along the way. But, but they had they had pictures of of camels with the in the desert that had we're all loaded down. And they said this is a caravan. That's what I think of picture of all of them coming across this bridge after breaking down the barriers and everything and saying, this is an invasion. All right. It's sort of an illegal immigrant walkathon. I think that's the best way to characterize it. All right. Okay. That's that's what we're going to call it that we could do all right here to talk to talk to us about this. Josh Kraushaar, national journal political editor. Josh good morning. Good morning guys. Good morning. Josh. You know, let me just ask you about the election broadly. I mean, there's a lot of political winds blowing, and it seems like everybody's fortunes are changing by the minute. When you look historically at midterms. Are there any trend lines that you can look at that you say apply to twenty eighteen because I one of the things I saw in the past day or so I was looking at voter enthusiasm among Republicans and Democrats and the enthusiasm tends to track with the actual gains each party makes in the midterms. What are you seeing in this cycle? Historically, the first midterm is is pretty tough for the opposition party against the opposition party usually make gains, it almost every midterm that that that the president faces, but what we've seen in the last month is that the Democratic Party has really suffered a lot politically after the cavalier hearings where I think a lot of people didn't like the way they handled the opposition towards seven the Justice. And also you're talking about immigration this morning. And I think that's really hurt the party. There's a reason they're not really talking a whole lot about like they're really not engaging with President Trump on the issue. NBC Wall Street Journal poll, which is nearly the president of the highest job approval during his administration. But it also also shows the Democratic Party losing nine points, favorability, they were even Stephen a month ago, thirty thirty eight thirty eight now they actually have a worse favorability rating, the Republicans, I think that's a really big development. That's happened in the last month and a half. And that's what I wanted to ask you about this about this migrant immigration of this migrant of invasion. Does this hurt? The democrats. Do they know that this this visual hurts them? Or are they going to be able to use it and use the media the complicit media in able to turn this around and look whereas our humanity. We want to help these people in the horrible evil. Republicans. Look what they're doing the visual of the president may be sending troops to the border. Are they going to be able to leverage that well immigration is one of those issues extremely dicey for both parties. And when you had a lot of news coverage about family being separated at the border a few months ago that was really bad for the Republican. This this issue of immigration really also energizes the base of the left didn't really hurt the Democratic Party. When the issue comes up in other ways, I in this this migrant caravan, I think is one of those examples when people, and I think I think generally the position of public is supportive of of of legal immigrants. They support immigration writ large. But when you have people trying to cross illegally, and you have these visuals that are out there. I think that turns off a lot of a lot of voters. Not just conservatives job depends on how people are talking about immigration. They've been NBC Wall Street Journal poll, I was talking about gives democrat a four point advantage, or which party is better equipped to deal with immigration, but that's a smaller advantage and they've had in the past given the coverage. Gratien rewards. You might think that would be the advantage would actually be bigger right now. It's an issue that the visuals are helping the Republican party that are helping President Trump. That's why he's talking about it at rally, and that's why Democrats aren't really trying to engage Josh's seems like that thanks to all the forces that you've mentioned, especially in the post Cavanaugh era that Republicans feel confident about their prospects. In the Senate. I saw on NBC news report today that GOP voters have surpassed democrat ones in early voting in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Montana, Tennessee, Texas, but the only place with the exception. And with the Democrats are leading in early voting is Nevada. What does that picture tell you? So I always hate to get to too eager to look at early voting numbers. Remember, remember twenty sixteen when Democrats they had a big advantage on early voting that there was an illusion. But I do think Republicans don't usually vote early usually they vote on election, even in states that have a lot of early voting. So I if there's any anecdotal evidence can gather. From those numbers. Republicans are visit is not going to be a typical midterm election where a lot of voters, stay home. What about MacArthur, supercharged, Republicans, are supercharge? What about the house fight kazaa that seems we're all the energy is now in terms of sorted out. What what's happening with the house? Well, I think if you look at the house, but Senator it's really a battle of the suburbs were Democrats are really energized. And I think democrat I I was just in California. And there are a lot of suburban races out there where Democrats may may pick up a few seats, but he had a lot of these red States Senate races. I mean Republicans to pick up two or three Senate race two or three expand their majority to about fifty three fifty four seats. Right. The way things are going. So, you know, the house is still very very vulnerable for Republicans because there's so many races in the suburbs, including Barbara Comstock in article avoid. Yup. But the Senate Republicans are very optimistic. They can actually picked up a couple of seats. Arizona's looking better for Republicans Indiana's looking better for Republicans. Yes. They may end up actually gaining two or three states from Austin. All right. We're just two weeks away from election day. We'll keep chatting you with you ahead of that. Josh crasher. Thanks, always. Appreciate your insight. Thanks, seven forty three wwl. When it comes to water mode of mobility.

No. He's somebody has eight fifteen Josh crasher from national journal gives us all the electoral headwinds Democrats are now facing and suddenly tailwinds for publicans and why at eight thirty five Brian darling. Who can break down the Senate process for us? Boy, that's annoying. At least somebody's careful about Brian darling. You'll have it. I'm Vince found as alongside Mary Walter this Friday, and I saw this. And I just laughed my butt off. We're gonna share it with you. We're gonna have some fun with it. A US postal worker a mail carrier in New Jersey. We used to say mailman, but I guess we'll it anymore postal carrier. Whatever we say now, I have a man and a woman. So we have to we have Lisa. To we've. But anyway, this unnamed postal worker. Took all the bail in his or her truck left it on the side of river road by thirty six street station in south jersey in pennsauken, and quit dumped the mail on the side of the road. Drove off I guess delivered the truck back at the at the post office and quit. What's the point? He's he's obviously aggrieved. I mean, it's not a matter of convenience. He just shoves all the mail on the side of the road. And then drives an empty truck back to the. But here's the thing the piles of mail date back to August eighth. So this person had been doing this for a while because they did not resign until September eighth. So they had been dumping mail on the side of the road containers, those, you know, those postal containers, you know, the big white boxes that you sometimes like if you go away for awhile, and they hold your mail. Yes. They'll give you like a big container. One of this. Could you please return? This does a postal service been a been type. Thing. Yeah. On the side of the road randomly here and there because he or she just didn't feel like delivering anymore. But then they had the big dump and they quit on September eighth. So do we know on this in this question, you said the males data dog estate goes back to August eight? So we don't know if they had just been holding it not delivering just dumped it all. But the mail today, and they figured out who it was. And they're like, oh that person resigned. So we thought we'd have some fun with this. Because I thought it was just hilarious that the the postal workers. Just like, you know, what this job riding around in this truck and never and just putting mail in in the people's boxes is way too stressful. So they just they just said, that's it. I'm just not delivering anymore. I'm just gonna leave it right here on the side of the road and out. So we thought it was. So would Vincent I got into a discussion discussing talk about this story about like. So if you had no consequences to Joe because I I've quit a job before and their consequences. So my father was tell me if you're going to quit, you have to make sure that you do it the right way, and you give them two weeks notice because you don't wanna burn the break. So if there were no consequences at also, let's say you wake up, and you find out you want two hundred million in the lottery. So there's no consequence whatsoever. Right. And how did you? And by the way, you double check that one right? That's not one of those like false alarms or you're like. Yeah. One. And then you find out later somebody gave you a fake lottery ticket, right? And you went to meet with your financial planner, and they're like, yes, you can you can quit your job and BNB safe. And know that you're gonna live the rest of your.

"Doors at seven thirty five in the national journal is Josh crasher with a preview the, primaries in Florida Arizona in. Oklahoma and. Eight oh five Peter Navarro director of. The White House national trade council will tell us what happened and what's in that trade deal with Mexico and does he think Canada will? Come on board I'm Mary Walter here with Vince Collines. Or good morning let's get into. That trade deal actually with Curtis l. s. he's a former Trump presidential campaign trade and jobs advisor and currently a senior policy. Adviser with, America first policies following all of this. Really closely. Curtis good. Morning good morning it's great to be here really happy, to. Have you sir and I know you've been working since the presidential campaign. On these issues How how monumental is yesterday's announcement in your long overstated. This is, hugely monumental I haven't working on this. Project and, this day. For really twenty five years I mean I remember when, Ross. Perot talked about the giant sucking sound of jobs leaving the United States And frankly there were days right never thought I'd see something like this the president actually any president from either party actually renegotiating striking a better, deal for Americans, and that's what's happened we have muffled if, not stopped that giant sucking sound this agreement with Mexico specifically. Says that you have to pay your workers. A decent, wage if you want to sell a car made by. Them in the United States and that's a that's a huge step forward that in alone that alone would be enough to make this a monumental deal. But there's so much more going on here. I mean we it has updated a twenty five year old agreement you show me? A business that signs. Twenty five year contract at twenty five year lease a twenty five year supply. Agreement with, a supplier doesn't happen we need to have constant updating this agreement does that for the NAFTA What what's no longer NAFTA's US Mexico deal. This takes care of that it makes sure. That auto, parts aren't being shipped in from China siphoned through Mexico. And then entering the US tax free this end that that that really bad deal and it opens up new markets for American goods for American intellectual. Property for American farmers for American digital goods. It's really a huge deal You said that it doesn't it's. Not will not continue in 0 won't be a, twenty five year deal how does that work because it does not contain an automatic expiration so how how do the renew do we renegotiate it on a on a yearly basis how does that work well so every six, years it. Has to be reviewed and the the the terms have to be, considered reconsidered by the members the details are. Going to be filled in here but we have seen a marker laid down by President Trump that has really moved to bar for move the move the ball forward on the on the. On the field people no. Longer take it for granted that well let's see let's have some, people sit down, in a room and write rules and that means this thing is perfect forever President. Trump has made it very clear and it's gonna be very hard for any any any of his successors to. Step backward from the idea That we have to constantly review and update and subject. These deals to skepticism and to. Review on a regular basis this is now become part of the consciousness of. People who are looking? At trade deals they used to be that. If we write some rules this is great we can now consider the job over now? President Trump has made? It, very clear that what we want our results we can't say that, academic rules are good enough let's look at the results. And if we're not getting the results let's tear, the deal up and start over okay so the big news yesterday that you're reaching a bilateral agreement with Mexico that you're working at the details on the president is but what about Canada how do you get Justin Trudeau, the prime. Minister to come to the table when you already have the Mexico, and the United States saying hey we agreed. To something either join it or don't at your peril well look the Canadian businesses the Canadian multinationals had the same feeling that American multinationals did They wanted to, get, into Mexico they wanted to find a way that they could exploit. The, cheap, labor and the, opportunities in Mexico the momentum now thanks to Justin Trudeau's ridiculous Behavior with the, president the momentum. Now is with Mexico this the train is leaving the station we always had an, agreement with Canada beforehand. Before there was an after there was a US Canada free trade agreement our two countries, are very similar in makeup in so far. As the economy's go the level of wages, so that shouldn't be too. Difficult to major sticking point with Canada will probably be dairy but you'd never know and the dairy business the. Way the Canada protects its dairy markets not very popular inside Canada the Canadians don't like paying twenty. Dollars a pound for butter and five dollars for for a pint of milk so we'll, see they've got a lot of, incentive to get on board and make this thing done and. As it was a very made. Very clear by the Mexicans and by President Trump if the Canadians don't wanna deal we've this is not gonna. Fall, apart the US Mexico part This. Is they're ready to go we're ready to, go all right a lot. More with this this morning with Peter Navarro from the White House will chat with him at eight oh five.

"A thirty five I'm Vince Collines with Mary. Walz joining us, now Josh crash political editor for, the, national journal. Josh welcome, back happy. Friday, happy Friday now is it a happy, Friday for Denver for Republicans in the midterm NBC, Marras poll says the Democrats are leading in Senate, contests in Michigan Minnesota and Wisconsin are we really going to see that Blue Wave Well I mean, those, midwestern states. Were we're, for publicans. No, matter what in the Senate races but, the big picture is that a lot of Trump's, base another supporting hammer starting to not be quite, as enthusiastic about his presidency as they were before the Helsinki summit There was a poll Quinnipiac did last week that showed among blue, collar voters Trump's job approval barely, above, water and you're seeing that a lot of independence now are kind of swinging away from the Republican party's real concern especially on the house? Side that there, are a lot of Republican members of suburban districts that are getting really really concerned about their reelection. Prospects Josh how do the numbers in the midwest for for Trump. Support, compared to, where they were just ahead of election day in two thousand sixteen because you. Know those were all considered like tossups and a lot of people didn't even expect Trump to win them and yet there it goes Trump winning things like Wisconsin and Michigan There are two ways, of looking, at the, the mid, western numbers I mean what are the big stories about the two thousand sixteen presidential election. Is that Trump's favorability rating, on the day of the, election was not, good and actually his numbers in those midwestern states were about. The same as they are now. In the in the near NBC news poll so you could argue, that not much has changed. People still are not you. Know super, positive about about President Trump but they like him more than you know the democratic alternatives on the other hand, what we're seeing now is that in those midwestern states the democratic base is much more energized so like in, two thousand sixteen really like Hillary Clinton at all but they're they're now you know there's no real democratic leader, of the party and the attention, is, being paved President Trump so I think you know as far as the midterm elections are concerned DEM Republicans have a lot to be worried? About the now, it's them defending their own governance, and when Trump's job approval is in the mid thirty percent range. If Dr freeze on party so you know the Senate I mean Those seats are were always. Pretty safe for Democrats have always been well in some of those midwestern Senate races but it's the house where they're really exposed and. Know they're almost eighty House Republicans that could be. In play this November, and a, lot of our investment western region, is they're growing support for the more socialist, I mean just. Flat out socialist members, of the democrat party are we seeing growth there you, know you have some pretty high profile. Candidates like Alexandria Cossio Cortes that emerged in New York City in, the grass, roots of, the Democratic, Party are definitely moving to the left on issues like single payer supporting single payer health. Insurance so of candidates surprisingly, have been been advocating for, tat on foreign, policy they're moving to the left in many ways but when. It comes to the big races. And then they kind of a big picture Democrats have actually nominated, more people from the moderator. The center left wing of, the party In governor's races Senate races and house races and you know there are some high profile candidates that could cost them some some pretty important seats but the big picture given. All of these races that are being run in two thousand eighteen they actually have managed to avoid too many Bernie Sanders alive candidates, and too many people that are that are kind of fringe candidates they can end up costing them election this week though some high profile Democrats have come out and voiced concerns about some of the socialist impulses. That are, kind of are making their way through the party. Jim Jim Clyburn for one? Just on, Alexandra Cossio Cortez basically said to BuzzFeed interview that, she should slow down and essentially no her role it's gonna be a while since before she can consider yourself part of leadership if that's our aspiration, the other side of this. Was Maxine Waters, of all people who's been kind of classically the one. Of the fringe ear person people in in, the Democratic Party is urging caution on the notion that there are socialist party saying that, that's not really the identity of the party in, any meaningful way did those words of Cautioned, suggests something deeper to the, two sides of, the same coin first of all like someone like Maxine Waters you know Democrats take, back the house shoot become the chairwoman of the financial chairwoman of the financial services committee and. She'll have a pretty big impact on on tax policy in business politics I think you know Democrats may be finding candidates but can. Run to the center in this election and if, they. Get back in power and they governed to the left that's gonna carry some significant weight in the twenty twenty presidential election in the big picture also. Is, twenty twenty you know even though in the midterm Democrats are finding some candidates that may fit their districts and they're the red states. That they're running in but it's twenty th all the candidates looking to run. For president are tacking, so far to the left unrecognizable from where the party has been over the last couple. Of decades so there's not really you're hard pressed the name of all the prospects that Democrats have for president anyone running to the middle Joe Biden you know I don't think he's gonna run but but you're. Kirsten gillibrand Elizabeth Warren Kamala Harris I mean these are running on a much more liberal progressive. Message democratic candidates have, done in the past what's going on with Scott Walker because he's running ten points behind his democrat challenger. What's what's, going on, there he has the name recognition, you'd, think he'd be in the lead Yeah I mean Scott Walker, is a survivor he certainly has been one of the more successful conservative governors. Of Wisconsin, but he also ran for election and three of the. More you know friendly Republican years in. Two thousand ten twenty seven and twenty fourteen and the political environment as you were, talking about what those those? Those polls in the mid west are turning to the Democrats favor I talked to some. People close to Walker yesterday there is nearly as. Bad as. What that it'd be people show but they acknowledged that it's gonna be, a tough. Political environment and, they they don't dispute the fact they're going. To be facing the toughest election. Campaign of Scott Walker's career yeah it's a perennial issue for him he's always he's always fighting an uphill battle and he's won a, lot of them so we'll see if he can do. It again the other the other part of. This of interest. This week is Ohio Republican Representative. Jim Jordan he he's had there's a lot going on with him one he's pursuing rod Rosenstein for impeachment he's been accused of all. Of these things that Ohio State ignoring. Sexual. Abuse a, matter which of course he. Does denied many times but then he's also making, this bid for house. Speaker let's talk about his path to house speaker is there, one I, think it's a longshot bid you mentioned, sort of the issue about what happened at Ohio. State becoming a bit of baggage for for, your speakership campaign and look he's got a hardcore degree of support In the Republican party. The freedom, caucus but can he build a majority do anything to get the more. Moderate and pragmatic members on board against Kevin McCarthy. Whoever decides. To run for speaker I'm very skeptical and there's actually a big congressional, elections coming. Up in a, couple of weeks Republican candidate with that whether. He supported at Jim Jordan speakership. And he didn't want to answer that question how much of a next door district so I mean Georgia's very popular with with with, a lot of conservatives but within the caucus ceiling on. How much support you hope able to receive. Yeah I think. I think you're right although I. Do wonder how much of a curveball it'll be President Trump throws his support behind Jim Jordan via random tweet then all of a. Sudden that may change the dynamics here Thank you very much. Josh crasher is always for the analysis really appreciate it sir totally thanks for.
