"It is really jump all today and that's a very scary thought for those who would who would like to see regime change in this country. You get down to the grandeur of an unknown. We have never tried to push ballots to individuals at home. We don't know what that's going to how that's GonNa Affect the voting behaviour or even its ability to tabulate the results. And so I don't have an answer to your question about mail in ballot. What I what what you do point out. Is this uncertainty that we can't really measure because we've never really tried to do it before and so you have a very narrow election at least today. We are still many months from that November election and an unknown that we can calculate and so for those that. Think hey listen the polls shifting and this is really Joe Biden's campaign to lose. I don't believe that I think this is a campaign that people need to be focused on and that may be one by the one that wants the person that wins it and not someone that sits back. It's really fascinating. Thank you so much for your insight. Kevin Cheeky and now. The story of the Global Race for Corona virus vaccine is well known by now our next guest. Matt Ridley is a British journalist. He's a member of the House of Lords. And he's a science writer whose books have sold over a million copies his latest work. How innovation works and why it flourishes in freedom explores the most effective way of cultivating new and creative technologies in medicine and all sorts of other fields. Here's our water Isaacson talking to Ridley about the fascinating history of innovation from post it notes to vaccinations. Thanks Christiane and thank you. Matt Ridley. Welcome to the show to on the show with your world to thank you for having me one of your things in your great new book book. I loved how innovation works says. That innovation doesn't work when it's imposed from the top down when there's too much top down. Control and authority. Has it been a problem in the coronavirus crisis were facing? Yes I think we how we are seeing a a lack of innovation generally The fact that we haven't been able to speed up a vaccine development and to some extent we're trying to full things like the tracing APPs and other technologies to to help us Rather than encouraging them to come from From the sort of ferment of trial and error experiment that that you have so Rodney said in your books in your book. The innovators in particular is an important part of this story. But can we really afford trial and error when it comes vaccine development? Well that's one of the problems is that there are technologies like nuclear power like developing vaccines. Where we can't afford an era and that that tends to cut technologies off from the process by which they get refined a new processes get invented. What what I think we need in the case of vaccines is a lot more platforms for how to develop vaccines faster. It's all about trying to wake workout ways of speeding. It up without making it less safe. And if if you think right back to the origin of vaccination I write about in the book in Eighteenth Century when the idea came in from the ultimate Empire to Europe and America. That was a very dangerous weird idea. Huge opposition to it and the the woman who brought it to Britain. Was you know it was savaged?.

"People covid nineteen has also triggered a severe recession and governments around the world. Desperate to send people back to work vital to this of course is the technology and the manpower to test and track the virus and warned citizens who may be infected to isolate themselves former New York city mayor. Michael Bloomberg is donating ten million dollars to this effort. Kevin Cheeky is a close aide to Bloomberg. He served as his campaign manager during his presidential run and during his. May or runs and he's joining me now from Washington Connecticut Kevin Cheeky. Welcome back to the program so so start out by asking you how this test and contact trace system is working because clearly that is really what is needed right now. Is it up and running? Where are we after? The ten million. That mayor Bloomberg has put in. Well listen what you just said. I wish everyone really knew. Your previous guest talked about that. We need to do two things. We need to come back as an economy and we need to keep people safe and what we've seen around. The world is where that has worked principally in Asia where this virus started was the ability to task to trace and ultimately quarantine. My real fear is that the United States is now poised to do this worse than any other industrialized country in the world. But it really starts with the basic idea that we've learned for hundreds of years find out who sick find out who else they've been in contact with and quarantine them until they're better so this doesn't spread unfortunately this is happening at national level and every other country in the world we are in the United States constrained by constitutional limits where we devolved certain powers to the states in my view. We're also constrained by the individual holds the most important constitutional office in this country. So it's really being left to governors county leaders and mayors to put this practice in place into what you said. We are helping governor. Cuomo New York developed the New York State program unfortunately is the largest and first ago largely because of the tragedy and the cases. That have occurred there. But we're rolling out as we speak and we've had sixty thousand applications for people to to become contact razors in New York state alone can. Can I ask you because Senator Sally was talking in response to a question of the Public Private Partnership and she said it was working really well and the private companies coming forward a lot in America to get all the necessary done right now? How do you assess that? I mean you're a former businessman Mike Bloomberg business man. How how how much of the piece is being done from the private sector right now? You know really jumped out at me. Listen we say things about the senator one she is. You know a an incredible personal story. I've read a little bit better book and I think you have to respect the life that she's lived in the service that she's given this country. I will say it's a very she's running gets more Kelly. This is a difficult day in America. Run against American astronauts were putting to back in state in space and obviously her opponent. Gentle action is a former astronaut. But her idea that hey. The public sector is sort of stepped forward. Yeah we've stepped forward. Because there's there's no there there in terms of leadership from our federal government so if you wanted to start from the point that our federal government is essentially failed us and hey good news people like Mike Bloomberg people like Andrew Cuomo others have rushed into fill the vacuum. I'm totally fine with that statement..
Bloomberg Campaign Staffers Speak Out, Alleging Broken Promises
"Mike Bloomberg's presidential campaign was one of the most expensive in history he ended it after a dismal performance on super Tuesday one month ago today the former New York mayor still promised to keep his operation running through the general election and to invest more than a billion dollars to defeat president trump but then hundreds of Bloomberg field organizers were abruptly fired last month three of them are now sharing their stories they talked with NPR's Juana summers when Mike Bloomberg launched his presidential campaign he hired an enormous network of staff across the country showering them with salaries that far exceeded what other candidates for pain he also offered them something else a job through the general election no matter what they offered an incredible benefit package which is unheard of for a field staff offering eight thousand dollars a month for a regional wall dedication to kill our healthcare technology a laptop cell phone that's all just money he joined Bloomberg's campaign in Miami Dade County as a regional organizing director in December he said those guarantees unheard of on campaigns made a job with Bloomberg incredibly attractive part of his job was to interview potential staff and it's part of our hiring guidelines wise to utilize the line back employment it guaranteed greener member location it's not that promise was part of what convinced Matthew jeweler in Denver to quit the I. T. job he'd worked at for ten years I honestly don't know if I would have taken the job if it weren't for that specific guarantee because I knew I wanted to work in the general election Bloomberg dropped out of the way shortly after super Tuesday then there were two rounds of layoffs in the first round hundreds of staffers across the country were let go told that they behave through March thirty first they were encouraged to apply to work for Bloomberg's organization in battleground states then Bloomberg abandoned his plans to form a new independent entity and announced that he but instead give eighteen million dollars to the Democratic National Committee for the party's battleground states program Donna wood in Miami lost her job on March twentieth conference call and it was all right options script from HR and then the call just ended it was selected by you can hang up now in a statement Bloomberg's campaign manager Kevin cheeky told NPR the campaign reached out to every organizing staffer in six battleground states as well as others and ask them to consider working with the GMC she he said hundreds of former Bloomberg campaign staff have been contacted interim hiring pipeline to join the DNC's organizing efforts something he insists would not have happened without the campaign's massive donations to the party but staffers were let go without guarantees I asked him all Jeff wani about conversations he had with potential campaign staff where he promised continuous employment three November Mike borrowed my credibility and abused in that moment we want people like Mike to now and the people in the party who benefit from like philanthropy chin now that it is not OK to just get harder as though you know where mere tool Summerfield organizers for Bloomberg's campaign have filed potential class action lawsuits were these complaints have been detailed in court documents Donna would file the first breach of contract suit it's now grown from one plaintiff to roughly eighty I just know what I was promised and I'm a woman of my word and I would just think that other people would be the same if you repeatedly tell someone something and it sure than that they still have their jobs and ensure them that you'll be transitioning to an end of independent expenditure that that would happen another potential class action lawsuit was filed by former campaign workers in Georgia Utah and Washington while the former workers say Bloomberg's campaign promise them continued employment they acknowledge that they signed at will contracts meaning they could be let go at any time Matthew jeweler and Denver the point isn't the contract that we signed it says out well it could come from the station two thousand former staffers had with hiring people all then you have a guaranteed job November fifteenth on official interview documents that they use internal many staffers including jeweler expressed frustration that Bloomberg funded the most expensive primary campaign in history five hundred million dollars on our on loan in a four month period he keeps falling one percent of that and every single one of his fields far higher salary for the remainder of the year the campaign manager Kevin G.

So that Biden bounce making the healthcare stocks their investors feel really good today anthem seventeen humana cigna all insurers posting their biggest one day rally since two thousand eight guy down but one day not a rally make no twenty four hours. A day may say but. Unh for example name. You didn't mention about throw it in with that group in a month. This is almost a three hundred billion dollar company. Went from two seventy two three zero five to sixty to eighty nine in the course of maybe twenty or so trading days. It's absurd up ten percent today on. A benign tape into earnings. I still think this is a stock that given below market multiple. Give it a seventeen multiple. You're talking about a stock that should be trading north at three hundred twenty dollars. I think that's where it's going. But the fact that these stocks move ten percent day is madness. I mean there's nothing normal bias. Is it man telling me that? Unh business ten percent better today than it was. It's added. If you think about it they all still have a target on their back. It doesn't matter whether you're coming from the Bernie Sanders Angle of what healthcare should be or the Joe Biden Angle of what a healthcare should be. Of course Madam incisors ready to go away all of these guys. It doesn't matter because they'll figure around the first of all sanders is not going to go. He's not gonNA have undivided government. He's not GonNa do away with it. It's what you say on the campaign trail and what you do in the behind the seat sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue. It's not going to get done. But all these companies still have a target on their back so I would take profits when you see two guys pointing the stock rally like this aggressively on a signal back again. If you look at a lot of these stocks and the signals of the world were a little bit more volatile united healthcare. Those guys talking about this. This stock had been quietly and steadily heading to new highs and in fact near highs when we got into what was in seemingly in corona inspired fullback for the entire market and for united healthcare. But in fact the snap back on whether it's Bernie and benign policy or not hard to no excuse me Biden and benign policy all the alliteration. Brian that now a lot of respect for what you were but the bottom line here is. This is a company that's growing earnings. Eleven twelve percent we saw JP Morgan upgrade their earnings two weeks ago after they gave a twenty twenty guide. That was better than expected. And that's why you stay in healthcare because at a time when you're questioning where. Eps Is going to be. These are companies that actually delivering at Multiples. That are difficult and the way to do it. I mean the Excel V. which is the whatever select. Etf UNH. It's Johnson Johnson's personal. It's murky. That thing was ninety bucks in October and it broke out and went to one hundred and five and just last week on Friday. It touched ninety so here. We are back at one hundred. I mean that's kind of the way to play this thing especially when you consider that a lot of those farming issues. Those companies have issues on the political front but they also have supply chain issues with China So I wanNA kinda disperse your risk. Across a bunch of these names and obviously.

"Twenty super Tuesday once again here is correspondent Aaron Katersky all that's left is super Tuesday about fifteen minutes of voting in California though most of the voting there is done by mail and ballots only need to be postmarked by today so they have until Friday to actually arrive at election offices we may not have a lot of information to tell you at the time polls closed but we do have information in most of the state's voting tonight Bernie Sanders takes his home state of Vermont along with Utah and Colorado another state where the voting is done by mail Joe Biden in Virginia North Carolina Alabama Oklahoma Tennessee Arkansas and Minnesota Mike Bloomberg takes his first win of the primary season in American Samoa but word is the Bloomberg campaign is reassessing things in light of how he has performed and how Joe Biden has over performed ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts is with us Steve this is seemingly anyway shaping up to be that kind of binary choice for Democrats well I think you're right about that there's there's no path forward for Elizabeth Warren and very very well really no path for Michael Bloomberg either if you look at the figures tonight Biden and and Sanders will probably split about eighty percent of the available delegates so at it it really is a binary choice and it's a fairly stark one because they represent despite the fact that they're both in their upper seventies they represent very different ideological choices very different styles very different constituencies oddly Bernie Sanders is best group is the youngest group even though he's seventy eight Biden tonight we saw him as he did in South Carolina perform very well with African Americans who are this probably the single most loyal voting group in the Democratic Party but more than that what we saw tonight is is what happened really in two thousand and sixteen which is that the Democratic Party looked at Bernie Sanders and decided that he was too far left to be the standard bearer and United around Hillary Clinton in two thousand and sixteen up until tonight Sanders has actually been under performing his record from two thousand sixteen but he's been called the front runner because the field was so fragmented what happened in the last few days what really happened was a coalescing coalescing of the anti Sanders and non Sanders wing of the Democratic Party saying he's not the majority candidate if we call us around one candidate we can beat up and that's what you saw tonight and looks Sanders still got a lot of life left he's got a core of supporters he's got a lot of money but the the bottom line tonight it's a majority of democratic voters do not want Bernie Sanders and the coalesced around Joe Biden ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts amid word that the Bloomberg campaign may be reassessing things let's turn to ABC's Ben Siegel who covers the Bloomberg campaign tonight from Florida's where Bloomberg calling out spoke to his supporters showed no sign of calling it quits Bender what are you hearing well this is definitely not the night Erin that Michael Bloomberg at home for you spent north of a half a billion dollars and a hundred days of running for president and just not enough points on the board so that looks like to give a clear path I work for and they predicted that he was going to be a viable over the fifty percent threshold that all of the states and they're about six of the Oct fifteen contests where he had not crossed that mark only one hour right in in one place and that the American Samoa that's certainly not the past the to win a nomination so they're all back in New York the bear went back to New York and Florida this evening and we expect them to take the call a cold hard look at what has come in and what we know what we will continue to learn and whether there is any absolutely and then it's Karen Travers here at you know what are they taking into consideration as they make that calculation and if when Michael Bloomberg gets out who does he throw support to they've been pretty explicit about this right labour pretty explicit they do not think Bernie Sanders is the guy to take out Donald Trump next year they just think that would be a disaster down ballot in cost Democrats in the house and any chance they haven't retaking the sun not just leave them with Joe Biden and not somebody we caught up earlier today with Kevin cheeky the campaign manager for Joe Biden who pointed out that well Mike Bloomberg was in the race you know actually contributed to Biden's campaign and predicted that after tonight we would have a pretty good idea of whether by dinner Bloomberg would be viable going forward and that he expected whoever was not thrown their support behind whoever it is and just take into consideration what that means Michael Bloomberg might not be a force in this debate but he's a considerable daughter of billionaire he's gonna put whatever he can to this race behind Joe Biden which we expect him to the support he does get out A.

"And we're back. You should have heard what happened. The commercial break event hairy needs to put them better clothes. Okay and our second topic are sweatpants. Really Pants they are not. He's not allowed to come to this taping ever again. If the pants do not have a zipper and a button well well. They're still working on the final tally in Iowa no joke on to the next caucus state which is Davita Democrat the Democrats caucus there on Saturday. But Nevada's doing something different this time. They are allowing for early voting or early caucusing. And we'll get to that but first let's talk about the lay of the land you've got Bernie Sanders Harry Nationally. He's the front runner but give us a lay the land what. It looks like in Nevada. Yeah I mean look. Here's the deal. Folks deals pretty simple. The polling Nevada historically has not been exactly fantastic for their caucuses. We've had a very limited supply of at the polls that we have had are not necessarily the highest quality. But I think it's fairly safe to say that Bernie. Sanders is a favorite so based upon the Nevada. Polling predictive nece over the past few cycles along with the betting markets. I have these odds for you. So Bernie Sanders has a fourteen twenty chance of winning. That's approximately seventy percent Joe Biden is in second a two and twenty shot. That's approximately ten percent Buddha judge a one point five twenty which of course is about seven point five Cent Club. Shar an style about a one in twenty shot each morning and a one in forty shod each and I should say this that Bernie Sanders. Chance does seem to be getting higher the closer we get to the Caucasus. He's had some favourable. Polls that have come out. But given reeducation of the delegates given the lack of holing given the predictive nece or lack thereof of the polling and pass cycles a fourteen and twenty shot is a seventy percent shot which means essentially. There's a thirty percent chance that Sanders does not win the caucus which means that legitimately what we say. That sanders is a favorite. It's by far from a certain. What about the Culinary Union not endorsing anybody in specifically attacking Sanders because of Medicare I? I don't understand this whole thing is i. don't not only I would definitely argue hurt sanders it also hurts everybody else. They didn't endorse sixteen though. Yes but there was a very clear foot on the pedal for Clinton in that. And obviously if you're against Sanders in sixteen year four Clinton and just everybody. The Culinary Union was powerful Union It represents most if not all of the restaurant and Casino in Las Vegas and is a very powerful union in Nevada exactly and I don't understand this whole idea of an anti vote. You don't get an anti vote in a caucus or primary in this country. You get a motive for someone and if you don't give direction you're essentially going to allow sanders to win. Say With thirty percent of the vote while the rest of the vote splits. The field and people aren't necessarily making the fifteen percents fresh also giving up your maximum point of power. That happens every four years and I don't understand why they're doing. I think the reason they did it was because they probably wanted to endorse Joe Biden based upon the fact that the statement from From the Union was when the state came out that they weren't endorsing anybody. The only candidate they did mention positively was Joe Biden but I think they were afraid that he couldn't win but I don I you. You can't play not to lose. You GotTa play to win and at this particular point. I'm not sure anyone's really playing the let me ask you this. I spoke with I spoke with Sanders Top Advisor Jeff. Weaver and asked him about something. That Bloomberg's campaign manager said today which when when Kevin Cheeky was asked can Bernie Sanders be caught at this point. He says you said I think this is pretty. This is pretty close to a direct quote. Which was I'm going to be honest. I'm not sure and it scares me. I asked Jeff. Weaver about and he was like that's presumption you know. I guess fuse if he was confident that confident he said that'd be presumptuous. But is that presumptuous? At this point yes right. I mean we're what I can't figure out the game that's being played with number numbers. People do best if if Sanders looks like they're the only thing standing behind sanders being the party nominee say this reminder to everybody. Bloomberg is on the ballot Nevada. So I'm just saying. Yeah I I mean look I think with the reallocation in Nevada given the uncertainty the pulling he could be caught. I think will. Obviously it's a separate question about whether he can be caught overall. Yeah but I I. Again tying this back to the debate last night it was. Almost you know as if people are acknowledging that he can't be caught and therefore the place for second place. Yeah I know lay in Nevada as well and I don't really quite get that because folks. There's no prize for second place. It's not like you get you know half the nomination or something or a quarter of the nomination you lose you lose and I just bottles of mine whereby it seems to me that everyone is playing just to stay in the longest and then lose. Eventually I look again. I think if if it goes to convention. I'm not can without anybody having the requisite number of delegates I'm not sure sanders can actually clinch. But Biden's obviously he set the expectation for second place. I think they're regretting that But he stills best positioned in South Carolina. What is the impact that Nevada hasn't right? We always talk about the impact. I Want New Hampshire Nevada. Have less but I will say this. We have a smaller sample size. And what we do know is that I do think that. Clinton's victory in two thousand sixteen in Nevada help set the stage for the blowout in South Carolina to the extent of the blowout. Right she won by four fifty points or so. And if you looked at the pre election polls they weren't anywhere near as favourable to her as you sort of saw at the very end. It was very clear. She had this boost. Momentum if Joe Biden is going to do what he needs to do in South Carolina. I do think he probably needs to come in second place in the silver state and he needs to close out strong there which is still a real possibility. I just say also that Bernie Sanders you know. Knowing South Carolina being South Carolina's should be like the worst single candidate fit four south. Now it could be momentum over. Choose that but that's always been part of the calculus well let's focus a little bit more. Bernie Sanders showers and you become the front runner. You get your own segment Relations to questions strong front runner status right now. And where is the front runner status? Come from I think comes from well first off? I think it's pretty strong Obviously when you're leading the field in the mid to high twenty s and no one else is at twenty percent. That's a pretty good place to be especially given fifteen percent threshold for Dell delegates even if they're assigned proportionally. I and it's pretty strong. Given thirty. Eight percent of the delegates are going to be assigned by Super Tuesday And if you're in Sanders position given where everyone else is in the field. You're aiming to probably rack up. Forty percent of the pledged. Delegates already assigned through Super Tuesday. Give him the polling right now. but I think that it should be pointed out that basically comes from the fact that look. He hasn't lost yet really. He's basically tied in Iowa. He wanted New Hampshire. He looks like he's GonNa win in Nevada and all of a sudden that's the type train that historically speaking has been tough to stop and given that most Democratic primary voters favorable view of them somewhere between seventy five and eighty percent. You can see why rewrite history. What the conversation having after. Iowa was the Bernie. Sanders did not win. That P booted each one. Well the votes have been recounted and recounted again and more counts and more and more counts. Well it looks like they've separated by like surreal. Numbers say that only because it really was a genius strategy for people to claim victory and just keep claiming it when it was that type multiple rounds of momentum from it. Yeah and look I I will say I mean you know th currently believe has more delegates than Bernie Sanders so for some reason. We're not talking about that if this delicate game. That seems worth noting Obviously Nevada and South Carolina are going to be a big test for Buddha judge. But look the the the the. Let's just be open and honest about this Most folks who have held elected position in the Democratic Party certainly swing state re elected representatives and swing district folks believe that Bernie Sanders would be a disaster for the Democratic Party in November. They believe it would re elect Donald Trump and it would hurt them down about to the extent where they would not win the Senate and they would lose the house that contrasted against the enthusiasm the far left fields about the exhilaration of jumping off a cliff. Before you hit the ground. Seems like something to consider how that's one way to put it that way to put it. That's a that's essentially how Kevin Cheeky putting it would just Bloomberg's campaign manager. Does it work for Mike Bloomberg if he's only running a campaign beginning to run a campaign that looks like it's only anti Bernie. I think the grew is that how I I don't know if it necessarily helps and I'll say this you know we had an NBC News Wall Street Journal poll that matched up Bernie Sanders and Mike Bloomberg. And what did we see if those are the two candidates remaining and you had to choose between one of Bernie Sanders Beats Mike Bloomberg by twenty points The way that you beat Sanders or the way that perhaps sanders gets denied. Even if he is the delicate leader is the contested convention. That we've all spoken about right. Winning forty percent of the delegates through Super Tuesday is not winning fifty percent plus of the pledged delegates through Super Tuesday and obviously you need a majority of delegates to win the first ballon the democratic side. We could enter this Weirdo universe. Right where it's pretty clear that Bernie Sanders is going to have the most delegates going into Milwaukee. But it's also clear that he's not going to have a majority of delegates going into Milwaukee new and hence why Bernie Sanders on the stage. Last night thought that the person with a plurality should get the nominees versus position from two thousand sixteen of course denied to me which is critical ally. But look. That's actually maybe the likely scenario and I say that with some incredulity because we always talk about a contested convention. We haven't had one since nineteen fifty two. But then it'll be about what's likely to happen is that some candidate will sneak through the middle. Triangulate between Bernie and Bloomberg Maybe someone in the race now and could even weirdly hypothetically be someone else Schmila Riche Minton now and that note I will cut you.

"Senator the company and somebody else in this case the man or woman or could be more than that. They decided when they made an agreement that they wanted to keep it quiet for everybody centrist. They sign the agreements. And that's what we're going to get. The question is are there found by being muzzled by you and you could release them from that immediately but this understand this is not just a question of the mayor's character this is also a question about electability. We are not going to be Donald Trump with a man who has who knows how many nondisclosure agreements and the drip drip drip of stories of women saying they have been harassed and discriminated against so. That went well so I wanNA talk about the Tour de Force of performance that Elizabeth. Warren turned in here. But I just WANNA start since. We've all seen debate preps unfold like was Mike Bloomberg. Did they not think that was coming? Did they not prepare for that? I can't imagine I can't imagine Hearing that answer debate prep insane. Yeah boss that will get us through this one. I mean that was. That was disastrous. And it's not going away. The the question is gonNA come up in every interview in every debate. I mean that's what happens when something like this gets introduced the American people on a big stage. I think you know the story of this debate to me was Bernie. Had A good not great debate but he had the best night of anyone because he's winning and running away with. Maybe everyone kick the shit out of Mike Bloomberg. Who's maybe his primary opponent. But I think it's probably a big mistake for Bloomberg to have entered this debate tonight. I mean at some point the debate but this was pretty close to Super Tuesday when he needs to rack up a whole bunch of delegates to really get in the game and he got pummeled. And so like you never know if the person getting pummeled or the person doing the pummeling is going to get penalized by boaters. The most but you know the narrative coming out of this thing was that he's terrible debating. Yeah I mean look you've seen this over. The course of the past couple of weeks is Bloomberg has risen in the polls and uses money to buy name idea and support their all these terrible clips of Mayor Bloomberg giving awful interviews which is tons of them and sometimes it's the way he says something often. It's his sort of like I'm going to tell you what's really going on here. Kids and then. He says something despicable as if he's the only one willing to tell the truth and the truth is something everyone knows and it's not but the thing that is important to me about the debate is unlike the rest of these people on the stage because they don't have the resources he does. He didn't spend a year in Iowa. Talking to people learning how to listen learning. What's on people's minds? Learning the ways in which being a a Septuagenarian billionaire for forty years has maybe made him out of touch and so the other two subject areas. You know advice from them. Exactly you're lucky tie and you're fine but but so here. He is on this stage. His helicopter landing him right next to the stage. So you can walk onto the stage for the first time exposed to the actual politics of the Democratic primary and he's wholly unprepared because he is unto untested candidate because throughout his career in politics. He used his wealth For often incredibly important in noble causes but also to inoculate himself from ordinary day to day on the grounds in the dirt with human beings politics and it showed. And that's why to me all these questions about a Bloomberg or really important whatever you think about Bloomberg the most important thing in this primary is whoever our nominee is going to be. They need to be put through their fucking faces because we we only get one shot to pick the person. I don't want to learn how bad a candidate Michael Bloomberg is after. He's the nominee. So Yeah I mean when tells me about Bloomberg is he hasn't inoculated himself from this kind of stuff through his whole life? He ran from air three times in New York City. So He's been in debates before but it is a problem that he has that a lot of other candidates some other candidates have been in this race Who haven't done well who hadn't been in politics for awhile and went and had to compete in politics for awhile have had. Which is you know. He probably hasn't done it ten years but also the point is that he almost lost his reelection in New York Despite having outspent that person fourteen to one and it was a surprise in part because he used his resources to overcome his liabilities candidate. That's clearly does that. I'm just I'm just saying from a debate performance standpoint And you saw this with like I would say he's completely different person in a million different ways but like deval. Patrick was very successful. Two-term Governor Massachusetts and then was totally lost in this race. Like people who haven't been in politics for wild tend to have some real trouble and I will say you know. Bloomberg has probably the best debate team that money can buy. And you know we all know. How Wilson Tommy? I've been on the opposite sides of campaign from him. You've been on his campaign Kevin Cheeky is also very good. Like it was not a pro. I do not think this is a problem of the debate. Team prepping Mike Bloomberg which is a bigger issue for him. This is the candidate. This is sometimes you have a candidate and you can prep them all you want. You can spend all the money you want. And they don't WanNA listen. Look you can spend as much time in the gym as you want. When you play a game it's a different thing and he was not prepared for this game and also that coincides with like a Bacchanalia like orgy of opposition. Research in. This reminds me of like the early days when Sarah Palin was picked as vice president when like the OPPA was hiding in plain sight. Reporters were just googling and right now. Journalists are just youtube being Mike Bloomberg clips that were posted at the time from events that he did in finding like incredibly damaging commentary on fill in the blanks stop and frisk dozens of other things. So he's going to be in the barrel for a long time and now. I think there's a pretty good chance that you can buy your way or spend your way out of that barrel or at least most of the way out of it. That's just the reality of the of the media today. A lot more people are going to see his ads or see his facebook. You know clips or whatever the fuck it is. Then there are going to read Some deep investigative report in The Washington Post. But it's GonNa make for an uncomfortable a couple of weeks. You know what I'm saying is when you have a candidate who refuses to listen grow. Who is stubborn? That is maybe one of the more unsolvable problems that you have a campaign. There's a lot of problems that can be solved by money problems. It can be solved by other staff here and there but at the core of the campaign there is a candidate who cannot learn and change and grow which I would argue some of the other candidates on the stage have and in past campaigns. Winning candidates. Do you have a real problem and to me. That was the biggest problem with Bloomberg. This guy is a seventy eight year old billionaire. Who is set in his ways? And no matter what you're GonNa do you're not gonNA change that and and it's even in like look. The answer is terrible. His answer on the news is absolutely terrible but also his tone is terrible. I mean it's it's sort of like A. Why am I? Why have to be here? It's like this like that's all perfunctory. That that he just needs to say I've apologized for stop and frisk without accounting for the harm. It it right like there's a study that shows that it affected the the high school graduation rates of kids affected by the policy. It is a deep and lasting pain caused by his decisions as mayor of New York. And you don't see in his answer that there's any sense of emotional blood bloodless it's bloodless and the same thing applies to the as a bunch of his other answers so We've said for a long time. That warrants strengthen these debates Which has been incredible message? Discipline has almost become a bit of a weakness. Now that she's fallen behind. It certainly seemed last night like she throat. The playbook and it could not have worked better. I mean it was her best performance of the campaign. I think it was maybe the best debate performance of any debate in the entire primary campaign What do you guys think it does because I do funny? I do agree with Tommy's point that it's hard to say that Elizabeth. Warren had the best performance in the debate. But that at this stage in the primary Bernie probably one because he left largely unscathed. And I think. I don't mean to be unfair. Warren because she fucking crushed it and I think it helped her campaign a lot may her campaign a lot but I just you know it's I think it's a matter of time I feel like I think the way I had the same opinion. Which is I think. Elizabeth Warren won the debate You know I'm a gay person But I do think I've discovered a new kink. Which is Elizabeth Warren doing to Mike Bloomberg? What Netflix blockbuster? And anyway he got to explain it. You know I didn't have to explain. I didn't explain anything. It's just out there now. May Jordan cry jokes so bad but The reason I say it's a matter of time it's that we are so close to Super Tuesday. You felt that on the stage even Bloomberg coming out of the box by saying that Bernie can't win and his his campaign saying other candidates he had dropped out which is incredible. Hubris for someone who doesn't have a delegate and you now have warrant for the very first time I think deciding to go from a unity candidate Who is above above the fray and delivering her message. Someone who's GonNa decide to own the debate stage by contracting herself with every single person on that stage and having the incredible intelligence in-depth touch and grasp of of of of debating to successfully do that which is incredible. But you think well okay. So she's going to get another look but here. We are hurtling towards Super Tuesday. A national vote. That depends on an incredible amount of ground game organization advertising and set views about. You know big chunk of the Party and you just wonder if there's enough time for that to make a difference. Yeah I don't think Super Tuesday requires organizing any basically anywhere I think it's all momentum and I think this might be too little too late. I mean she raised. She raised a bunch of money here. And she you know. This was a new approach but she went from like wine cave to unity to. I'm bringing a baseball bat to my podium. Going to beat the fuck out of Mike Bloomberg but the problem was for opening. Anecdote was You'RE A billionaire. 'cause women fat broads in horseface lesbians which was about the most brutal attack or opening shot at ever seen in a debate but again everyone is losing to Bernie Sanders and she was one of the. You know everyone onstage. During their fire and Mike Bloomberg she did come back around during healthcare discussion when she criticized mclovin. Char and and Mayor Peace Plan in in that she had a hit on Bernie where she said. Bernie's campaigned relentlessly attacks. Anyone that asks a question about his health care campaign but you know I. I don't know that that's really going to do any damage she W- and we'll get to that in a clip a little bit later. But I I would say that Warren Obliquely Pete and then Bloomberg did did challenge Bernie here but of course. The story out of the debate is we're all talking about is the hits on Bloomberg because I think that is deeply satisfying to a lot of us who follow politics very closely and I think the question is did the rest of the viewers in the country. Who saw that debate? Were they as satisfied as some of us by watching those hits. But let's let you know we have a couple of other clubs to do here so yes so low. You're saying most candidates except for those three dimension sure shied away from attacking Democratic Front runner Bernie Sanders but at one point Bloomberg tried to make an electability case for himself And Tax Sanders Anders in the process the moderators then ask Bernie about whether the socialist labour will scare voters away in the general election and Bernie push back pretty hard. Let's listen I don't think there's any chance of senator beating president trump. You don't start out by saying I've got one hundred sixty million people. I'm GONNA take away the insurance plan that they love. That's just not a ways that you go and start building the coalition that the sand camp thinks that they can do. I don't think there's any chance whatsoever. And if he goes and is the candidate we will have donald trump for another four years. And we can't stand that senator centers our latest. Nbc News Wall Street Journal poll released yesterday. Two thirds of all voters said. They were uncomfortable with a socialist candidate for president. What do you say to those voters? What was the result of that? Poll was wondering.

"Tonight a major test for one of the Democratic presidential candidates former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg will be on the debate stage for the first time in this campaign which means the first opportunity for his fellow candidates to confront him directly and they are just thrilled about that. That is what they WANNA do. And there will be questions on a variety of issues props from stop and Frisk to allegations of misogynistic comments from his past. Mj Lee has been digging on that story for CNN and MD. What is Bloomberg accused of saying Erin. Cnn examined to lawsuits dating back to the Nineteen Ninety S. Either these are lawsuits that other media outlets of scrutinized as well the first one was leveled by a woman. Kiko garrison a former Bloomberg L P employees. She described a voice called like atmosphere at the company. She said that women there were encouraged to have sex appeal and that women who were married or had children would lose out on career opportunities and in the complaint. She says that when she found out she was pregnant she informed Michael Bloomberg and his response was to say kill it and but he also muttered great number sixteen suggesting to plaintiff this garrison. His unhappiness that sixteen women in the company has maternity related. Saddest there were other crude remarks. Were detailed in this lawsuit and the Bloomberg campaign says that Bloomberg has never said any of those things that are a detailed in this particular lawsuit and the second lawsuit that we examined also comes from former female Bloomberg LP employee who actually accuse a Bloomberg executive at the time of rape so a very serious allegation and according to the village voice which looked at Michael Bloomberg's deposition as part of that lawsuit Michael Bloomberg said that he would only believe a rape allegation. If there's an unimpeachable third party witness This is what his spokesperson sue. Loser said about that said it was a contentious deposition and this is not what Mike believes. Erin so M j You also a chance to speak to a former Bloomberg employees about these lawsuits on the culture at the company. Obviously it's one person but what did they tell you? This person said that they saw and experienced the kinds of sexism that are described in these two lawsuits that we just talked about. They said when you're a woman who worked up Bloomberg you had to look beautiful. You had to be gorgeous if you were overweight. They would call you horrible names. Its means soft now. The Bloomberg campaigns overall pushback on these kinds of allegations has been to say that Michael Bloomberg himself does not condone this kind of behavior. They gave us a statement from a campaign chairwoman. Patty Harris part of that reads in any large organization. There are going to be complaints but Mike has never tolerated any kind of discrimination or harassment and he's created cultures that are all about equality and inclusion. Anyone who works hard and performs well is going to be rewarded regardless of gender race sexual orientation or anything else. Erin all right thank you very much. Mj and I WANNA go out front now to Michael Bloomberg's campaign manager. Kevin Cheeky as you are getting ready for the debate tonight Kevin look this is going to be one of many issues that that could come up That your rivals are focusing on Democrats of course have been running against the president that they have criticized as misogynistic sexist and of course much worse I in his case. Are you concerned at all about the damage that the allegations That that M J is talking about might do to Bloomberg's candidacy. Well I I worry about anything that people say when it's untrue I've worked at Bloomberg since Nineteen ninety-seven and Bloomberg is one of the most inclusive. And quite frankly the best workplace I've ever worked in and I know lots of female colleagues who feel exactly the same way you know what CNN trying to push out. Today's news is something that happened when Mayor Pete was in high school Thirty years ago that has been well covered in New York City. Press that village voice article. You references so old that the reporter that wrote it has passed away and not at a young age and so listen. I think people will go back. They will try to find things that are untrue. And they'll try to make news win. They're not Mike. Bloomberg has an incredible record. He's created a business attire. Hundreds of thousands of people all over this country and all over this world. He's created an open place where people respected where people will hire and company that creates some of the best jobs and some of the best executives in New York many of which are women and so it concerns me when people say things that are not true so the the campaign though you know Kevin of course you've acknowledged that he has made comments that you say do not align with his values that's been the response at least that that's due Loeser. Put Out formerly So I guess the question is. Is he ready to respond to that tonight? Is he going to to say that? He is sorry for things that he that he may have said. Or is he going to be more aggressive? Denying Him Mike Bloomberg is GonNa talk about is who's the best can't ultimately face against his present who can build a positive in the strongest possible campaign who has the strongest possible record. Mike Bloomberg is on the stage tonight with a lot of people who have sat in committee. Hearings Some don't have much government experience at all. Mike is was the mayor of the largest and most diverse city in New York City. He brought it back from nine eleven. He took over control of the schools. He graded four hundred thousand jobs. He ran tough elections in races. That he wasn't supposed to win. He's quite frankly one of the most successful businessmen most successful politicians in this country. And he's probably the only person ultimately who can be Donald Trump in November? So Mike boomers GonNa talk about his record. He's GonNa talk about what is an incredible progressive record on the issue of guns on the Issue Environment. Other issues tonight in a way in a way that maybe a lot of Americans have not heard yet but certainly one that. I think that they'll consider so so one other thing that's going to happen tonight and you're ready for this is that they're going to be going after him. On a variety of things one of them is GonNa be the money he's been spending and we've been interviewing various candidates over the past few days. Kevin and they are all telling US pretty much this here they are. Do you think Michael Bloomberg is trying to buy the Democratic nomination for President? Yes yes I mean what else you call it. What else do you call it when you dip into your endless reserves of millions and billions and don't go through the process of campaigning in states like Nevada. Araya were New Hampshire. I actually thought he should be on the debate stage. Because I don't think you should just be able to buy your way to the presidency by the by the selection three. So let's say that tonight because they will what are they what. What is he going to say? Because you know that's going to be coming from everybody else on this day. Well listen stay tuned to find out what my limit says. I'll tell you what I say. Mike Bloomberg is the only candidate his campaign and all fourteen Super Tuesday states might Bloomberg's the only candidate who's actually done a public campaign of and Bernie Sanders home state of Vermont. Mike traveled all over this country. I will say also two more things. Mike Bloomberg is spending his own money just as he has in every election. He's ever run. He's not beholden to special interest. What has been credibly uncovered by CNN and others? Is that more than half the money being spent on television right now in the state of Nevada where you are which will have a caucus on Saturday. On behalf of the candidates is being spent by outside packs. Four out of five of the candidacies other than my Bloomberg are being outspent by pack supporting them with millions of dollars. And so listen you can have a choice. You can have a mayor who's going to go out and spend his own money to take on. Donald trump or you can have outside special interest fund the candidates. I think people want to have a candidate comes in who's independent and ultimately it's GonNa stand up for them so Today Bloomberg has been running an ad. Your ad that it's been touting. His relationship with President Obama some who worked with President Obama. I've been critical of it the former NFC spokesperson for Obama. Tommy Vietor tweeted it. His jarring to see all these Bloomberg adds it suggests Obama has endorsed him especially considering how perfunctory his endorsement of Obama was.

"It you know in his willingness to use his own. Money is actually admirable. Some link we heard from Mr Bloomberg's campaign manager Kevin Cheeky. Who said everyone came to destroy Mike Tonight? He said and it didn't happen. Everyone wanted him to lose his cool and he didn't do it. What what do you think of what Kevin she has to say about that? Well the job of any good campaign staffer of course try to spin the results of Debate to look better for your candidate. The initial statement from his campaign was basically saying well. Yeah he's just as warm up. He's just getting his sea legs in terms of debating because he hasn't been a candidate for elected office in a while so they pretty much admitted that he had a poor performance when it comes to whether or not He didn't react. Negatively or you know having outbursts or something like that. Yes that's true but I think also a lot of people were concerned that there was actually no real passion or emotion in a lot of his responses especially in contrast to many candidates on that stage who do express a lot of passion not the least of which is Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren Right Who sometimes get in trouble for the amount of passion that they're expressing. It's pretty big contrast with Michael Bloomberg who just honestly didn't seem very excited to be there the The Passion that especially Senator Warren brought to it and that is regarded that she. She destroyed him on stage. But she going to be the beneficiary of the blows. She landed on with Mr Bloomberg last night. This is a really great question because I think in some ways Bernie Sanders. Really benefited last night from the attention being focused on like a Bloomberg as the front runner at least in the polls right and in the delegate count you would assume in a debate like this that he would be the target of attacks from his opponents but because this is the first time. Lugar wasn't a debate because he is increasing his support in polls in his Ability to garner votes in a lot of our Super Tuesday states. That are coming up. The attention really was focused on him and taking down like a Bloomberg Whoever does it and however they do it benefits multiple candidates and not just Elizabeth warrant in May in fact benefit the moderate candidates Buddha judge Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar And may benefit Bernie again from just not having the attention to him but I do think there was some benefit to Elizabeth Warren in that her performance seemed to really energize her supporters. And possibly some news support or she raise more money yesterday than any other day in her according to her campaign staff There was clear energy during and post the debate among her supporters and I think it challenged some of the narrative of the previous two weeks that she was somehow you know doomed to fail and that she was erased from some of the narrative about the campaign I think now they can't totally eraser from the story because she was such a integral part of last night's debate will leave it there. There's more to watch more to come professor Dittmar. Thank you thank you. That was Rutgers University political science professor Kelly Dittmar in New Brunswick New Jersey.

"Breaking news Joe Biden and vice president is just speaking right now and he's making his first comments and set since the numbers have started to roll in from Iowa Saying he's trying to figure out what just happened Mayor that's that's that's that's why I said look it's honest he's trying to just having under remind anyone just joining right now in fourth place with sixty two percent of the precincts report. What would you say? Of course they say what what just happened this is my people. Don't pay attention. It's so confusing. I mean if you came that for back you would find a way to try to justify what happened and unfortunately it's a bit on justifiable justifiable. This is a difficult place for him to be in And as we all talked about earlier the vice president is really going to have to get it together. Forward New Hampshire As we go into Nevada which should be a state that is much more open and available to him especially given the Labor support that exists there and then into South Carolina but if if any of that starts to crumble honestly honestly I fear for what this means and I think what we saw with with Bloomberg's campaign advisers interview. We'll we'll see a lot more regularly. They'll be a case to be made and he sang Kevin Kevin Cheeky Bloomberg. Tammy interesting that they see two tickets out of the out of I o n two tickets out of the I two states you got to win one of them and and look this is their spin on it. But you know he's setting setting it up as if Joe Biden doesn't win New Hampshire which I think that's a that's a little bit fatalistic. I think Joe Biden can make it all the way through South Carolina. I think he needs to do fairly well. The New Hampshire knowing that he's going to do well in South Carolina. I think Nevada's probably GONNA be a little more of a tossup because we've seen that younger Labour voters support Bernie Sanders and potentially essentially older labor. I think we'll potentially for Biden so there may be a split. The part of this expectation setting right. Everybody's got their spin about. Why last night was the most important thing that ever happened? And why it doesn't really matter unfortunately because of what actually happened with the APP it does create a bit of a cloudy Mercury situation. Of course it does but then you're you're going to say okay which which way do do do people want to spend this. Do you see Buddha Judges Rick Santorum or do you see what I'm saying. They can win Iowa big moment what it does not mean you're the nominee who knows. I mean let me help the vice president. I mean he's been on this earth long enough to recognize it open. One occurs got beat last night. Not only that he finished on the list but he got beat by someone else. WHO's in his zone of the party? He Buddha Jewish and and so to me. You go to Hampshire and you don't win or you don't do well over there. I mean there's a long way to go in a long time to get to South Carolina and I don't know how you raise enough money need to keep it afloat that long and in it Super Tuesday. I have to put in the time. You know we we. You've been in Iowa many times Joe Biden in Iowa November and he did a town hall. Aw He sat there the whole hour every commercial break. He's in the audience. Arguing with the professor was Grinnell College on Healthcare stayed for hours afterwards. The Guy put the time. Amen in Iowa Mark Generational I mean specifically. We're where we were when we saw him. You know that time He has generational issue right now. And that's understandable. I mean he's not going to be able to relate to the same way that mess A mayor people would would resonate a message. I don't think you can say about the past. Elections actions are about the future. He's already going against the fact that he's been in politics so long. Then give us something we can hold on. Do paint a picture. I can see myself and my family in for the future not bad although there is an irony sometimes that message is not always correlated with age take Donald Trump who is just a couple of years younger than Joe Biden. Sure he's message out and Lisbeth Warren and so he can hang Biden's remarkably blank on in terms of what's in people's mind. I do wonder if he's been hurt by the whole attack on his son all the southeast gone through and he looked tired this weekend they yeah he looks a little bit out of sorts. I'm but I will tell you this. Bloomberg looks at this and he sees the other three tickets out of Iowa. Right now are three people by most conventional. Conventional wisdom cannot be a will not be donald trump so bloomberg looks at Tatton. I was wounded by. Biden is wounded and you got three other people who can't win that's the recipe for him coming in big and that's why he's doing what he's doing he's coming here. Really Bakke come in hot money all right. Thank you very much.

"For yourself. Yeah it's actually important for the event and they've actually asked us beyond stuff like that not to take questions but I think it's very important. These protests around the world who are around on climate and economic inequality. Mr Bloomberg is running. I mean now I know you guys now. Hi Hi nice to see you Mr Mayor. Couldn't you respond to the question. We were told. This was a news conference. That's why so many reporters packed in. Yeah thank you Mr Mayor. How do you think I think that? Sorry these global protests around inequality should be addressed Mr Mayor how do you think these global protests against inequality should be addressed. If you answer it. I'll stop asking Mr Mayor. How do you think these global protests against inequality should be addressed so we went to this event that Mayor Bloomberg Bloomberg was speaking at that was billed as a press conference many press packed into the room? We listen to Mayor Bloomberg talk about about climate crisis and we all questions and my question to him was in light of the global protests that are taking place the UN says these protests oh tester being driven by inequality and both economic climate inequality as a billionaire. Who is running for President President? How does he address that issue? When he ran for mayor three times he spent more than two hundred fifty million dollars of his own money at the time it was more than any official in? US history any politician in US history. Now he's entered the presidential race. He has spent ninety million dollars on ads. Twenty million dollars at any other presidential candidate is this his strategy. I wanted to ask him for winning the presidency. I tried to ask the question. The police slamming against the wall. The mayor was right there. Within a few feet of me he could've answered at any point One of the spokespeople said he's not here to talk about running for president and yet he talked about President trump and the fact that the US is being pulled pulled out of the UN climate summit. I think it's very fair question in light of what's happening here in Madrid and what's happening around the world. We tried our best. He was silent for a longtime. I was walking pretty much at his side. So we'll try again another time but mayor Bloomberg should be willing to answer questions not call a news conference conference and then not answer questions when the press packs in so that was twenty. Twenty presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg refusing. Inte- answer questions after speaking to a packed room of reporters here at the U. N.. Climate summit the men who is running interference for him Kevin Cheeky Gi is in fact. Bloomberg's twenty twenty presidential campaign manager. She told US Bloomberg is here at the COP. Not as a candidate and that they've made the deal not to address these kinds of issues later that night we watch Bloomberg on an extensive interview on CNN from the UN climate conference friends with Christiane Amanpour where he didn't talk all about the twenty twenty presidential race and president trump. So that does it for this segment of the program when we come back. Wildfires are devastating Australia. The world governments failure to meet the Paris climate agreement. We'll be next on our agenda. Stay with us. Gosh do casual.

"kevin cheeky" Discussed on The Forecast with Harry Enten
"Shalom what my homeys doesn't work with my homeys. Let me my home view. Losers were not happy until just then history is being made this week you guys the House of Representatives beginning the first public hearings in the impeachment inquiry into the president of the United States only the fourth time in US history such a move has been launched how might the proceedings influence voters we will. We'll discuss we are also one week away from the next Democratic presidential primary debate and the field which had been shrinking. May instead be gaining another candidate or to you. Doing that was just the Frankenstein referenced. Snow that's a reference to Airplane Wow okay weekend again to dues watching airplane again. Let's continue though okay. So instead of the field getting smaller it may actually be gaining another candidate or two as you heard it on this podcast last week. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg filed the necessary paperwork to put his name on the Democratic primary ballot in Alabama on Tuesday. He traveled the Little Rock. Arkansas to file for the primary there. The clearest signs yet that Bloomberg is really serious this time and really seriously considering getting into the race. I'm told from folks folks close to him that it is within days. The decision will be made. What are his chances? And even short of that. What does a late entry into the race mean for the rest of the Democratic field we are going to take a look and finally a new? I will pull of likely. CAUCUS GOERS PUTS South Bend Indiana Mayor Pete booted squarely early in the top tier of candidates and closer look on his status and the shifts taking place in the race for Iowa. I Harry yes the latest forecast. What are the numbers telling you this week? So we're just going to do a quick power rankings update crystallization. I put these together of course and Hugh we shall Zhao. Go number ten Tom Star. He is down one number nine making his first appearance on this list. A long period of time I believe he was once a bonus. He's once in the bonus is Michael Bloomberg number nine Bloomberg in the power rank. I know as a chain. No number number eight is cory booker. He's down two spots number seven Andrew Yang. He's up a spot comma Harris's down a spot to number six up two spots lots is the senior senator. From the Great State of Minnesota Amy Klobuchar number four Bernie Sanders holding number three Buddha judge number one. We have a tie this week between Joseph Robert Biden Junior and Elizabeth Warren and number one tied there so basically I think what you see there is some movement upwards for a little movement words for Biden and some downward movement for both Comma Harris and Corey. Is this evidence of cloture. Meant into tragic just so so good to have one good idea of the last two months and you decided that you just couldn't have have that one idea you had to bring it out for a lot of down when you go. I look I I think what we see here with cloture. which is rather important is that she he is if anything moving up in the national polls a little bit? She is moving up a little bit in Iowa. She is qualified for the December debate. And more than that. I think that we've seen that harasses fallen back considerably and Booker. I don't believe has had a single qualifying call yet for the December debate. And so you're basically in a situation Shen where you got to recognize that the field is what it is in essentially after the top four you have to fill out the rest of your list. Clo- Char seems like as good of a bet as any in fact I believe Patrick Murray over at Monmouth University. Paul said that. If there's one person he'd be watching an Iowa Char who's not on everyone's radar and I think I agree with so one other thing. I want to point out four x mayors on this list in the top. Ten single freaking governor. I but you got like Blooberg. In the race you got from Newark. Cory Booker The outgoing mayor of South Bend Pete Buddha judge and former mayor Bernie Sanders a BURLINGTON. It's just that's that's really unusual and kind of fascinating considering that mayors have never been anywhere near the presidency. Historically it's not even it's not just fascinating. It's just weird it's weird. It's the changeover. From being an executive of a state being a governor was always seeing long seen as farm team for running running country. It is so strange how it's changed. I mean I we can we. Can you can give that to donald trump to be honest because he completely broke the mold on what what what can be do the resume you have going into the White House so once. He broke the mold with any political experience since then drank. Says I'm in. Yeah and follow data mayors like wow. I don't be governor I I would also prescribe it to the fact that Democrats been struggling modelling to gain state houses at least during the Obama era. You don't have that sort of farm team that you might necessarily have had in prior years. I think that's the governor. In the race Steve Bullock I mean registering zero. Where is he? I walked out even registering. Look if we were doing you would say give give me a red state. Governor who WANNA state trump won considerably been reelected really good on all the issues. Democrats care about and has the endorsement of I was longest serving serving statewide official Steve Bullock. And he can't get arrested. It is crazy. You've got all these other folks getting in the race to fill an inch that he should should fill in cory booker still getting no traction. And it's just mystifying. I'll just saying this bullock on the race very very late because he doesn't have to stay in Montana that's all relative now right now that's relative but if you look back over time that people who tend to nominations that's it he wanted to get a state budget passed right. That's what you're saying. I do I do but I I if you look back over time which you see as the people who tend to win. Nominations tend to get in towards the earlier part of the field or certainly earlier earlier in the year before. And that was the case when George McGovern did it then Jimmy Carter got an early. Reagan was one of the later ones but he obviously already had the huge name recognition but that started a wave of people getting an early and then all of a sudden that seemed to have stopped and people think that they can get in late. But the fact is that voters say they're satisfied with the field and they said that early early on last week we touched on the New York Times. CNN College Pool that looked at the head to head matchups between the top Democratic candidates and president trump in those six key swing states six states that help trump win in two thousand sixteen and the matchup show that the president is still highly competitive in those states said another way there is weakness among the top tier in the the match ups when it comes to those key states. There's good speculation that this pull this New York Times. CNN poll may have been a factor in Michael Bloomberg's decision to you. Make these new moves to get into the race. One Bloomberg's top advisors tweeted out the poll and some commentary about it just days ago so and he doesn't you know every every every move the Kevin Cheeky is making right now has to do with their decision on what's actually going to happen in terms of Bloomberg getting or not so you talked about John on on the podcast about the Biden backup Another one of your wonderful list and who that may be does Bloomberg fit that bill. Well that's absolutely his intention. Bloomberg had not gotten in like a lot of other centrists for Mitch Landrau to Terry McAuliffe because they felt that that Biden was just too a strong in two commanding a lead the polling. The Biden's team was showing. Everybody said you know. There's just not room here. He's got this. And now you see that Biden has been remarkably resilient lead in the polls but there still is a lot of concern that there's ample room to screw this up whether it's his age starting to creep through recognizes pulling a strong but a lot of folks folks and Bloomberg has said this sort of see this election as an existential issue for the United States and they're very concerned that there's no one obvious in the Biden backup slot as Elizabeth. Warren has been and rising in the polls A lot of folks have been saying. Oh if things go that direction not only are we gonNA lose..
