Julin Castro, a 2020 presidential contender, on why Joe Biden beat him and Trump
"Secretary hulan castro. Thank you very much for coming on the podcast with you before we get to the topic that we are here to talk about what i wanted to talk about. You want to talk about. And that is the latino vote in twenty twenty. We gotta talk about the biden transition and what you're in for. Do you wanna go back into a presidential administration. But that's his decision. Of course it's his decision. Yeah but. I've said that i'm open to that. I haven't taken anything off the table. Have anything on the table. I haven't had any conversations with the transition team with with the president-elect about that. But the thing that i do know and i can tell already from the names that have been put out there for different positions. Is that the team. He's assembling spectacular one. And it's going to be so much more competent effective than what we've seen over the last four years it goes without saying you know for years ago. Donald trump promised everybody that he would surround himself with the best people and then couldn't be that could have been further from the truth. Joe biden is actually surrounding himself with some of this people out there. Whether it's the folks were up for treasury or a g or any number physicians. And so whether i'm part of that or not what. I have confidence in what matters most to people is that these are going to be very competent. Effective folks okay. I'm going to continue to put you on the spot. And in president obama's administration in the second term you were the secretary of housing and urban development. So let's just take that off the table. When i go back to to where you were before dream job dream scenario. Just forget that. Joe biden kamla. Harris are gonna be the next president vice president of the united states. What would be the dream job. In a presidential administration. I was running for president. Of course they make good people. I would do hampshire saw otherwise and rightly so in twenty. But yeah i mean. I'm going to leave all of those conversations to the transition team. That's uniquely decision. And so i feel like i'm going to continue to use my voice in any way that i can on the issues and the vision that i pressed forward in the presidential campaign. A lot of that vision is shared. I think with adults Biden and vice president-elect terrorists but was find a way to serve anyway. I can't even if it's only in according break candidates for office up down the ballot which i was happy to do in twenty twenty so transportation there Yeah there any of those roles for people that are interested in public service or great role all right and then i was only pressing on labor and transportation. And you didn't give me a chance to keep going down the list. Because i mean let's not forget. Therefore you ran for president. Before secretary of housing and urban development. You were a mayor. Yeah yeah you were the mayor of san antonio. So it's not. It's not out of the realm of the possible that those two agencies would be something of interest may be an ambassadorship. The world food program in rome. I mean there are lots of things but we'll just leave that alone. We'll leave it alone. I feel like that. This is an exciting time for a lot of people that want to surge. And we'll see what happens. I love pressing. You folks who are you know on the precipice of possibly joining the cabinet tried to watch you squirm but let's talk about something that you actually can talk about and want to talk about. And that is the latino. Vote in the twenty twenty election as i said before. I am fascinated by what happened. Talked to me from your perspective about what happened in the twenty twenty election. These the latino vote. Well overall the a latino vote was still a very important and impactful part of the democrat coalition and you could see that most notably in wins in arizona nevada. You did a community like georgia. You know where. There's been a growing latino community over the last decade or so so overall. Very positive the turnout. Rate among latinos was higher than it was in two thousand sixteen like it was for all other hurricanes so that was very positive. Obviously you also had some of these areas of the country where democrats did performed as well as i would have wanted them to or anybody would have wanted to. That was ruining for joe biden and democrats. I think of miami dade county for instance in florida. Yeah so let's go through each area so in miami dade county in florida. What were the dynamics. There that made the turn out on behalf of joe biden. Not what democrats hoped. it would be. Well you probably heard this term monolithic right more in the last two or three weeks two weeks since the election having last year
What the Election Taught Us About the Latina Vote
"A majority of latino voters did vote for joe biden and comma harris. They played a critical role in states like arizona like nevada. The played in pennsylvania part of my theory of what happened. Is that because florida went. I what happened in miami dade set the narrative about let the nose around the country in the eyes of people who don't know our community is that well and we're providing a lot of that analysis and it then became a wave of headlines that took what was a part of the story. Because i think there are two story. There is both the truth. That latinos turned out in incredible numbers for democrats and the truth. Donald trump made inroads among some communities within the latino community. Both things can be true. They didn't weighted equally in the way that we talked about it. But i also think most of the national media is based on the east coast. So there's a tendency to see things through that lens. Miami comes in first. Miami is wear people tend to think of a power center of latinos. Being latinos in miami are much more powerful than latinos elsewhere. But then when you step back is your sanely. The majority of latino voters are actually not for out there. They're all over the southwest. they're also in the in. The rust belt made a difference not only in pennsylvania. I think also maybe even in wisconsin and we tend to forget about those places where we tend to gloss over them really easily and i do think a lot of that has to do based on where the national media is based. Let's talk about what did happen in arizona because that story provides such a narrative counterweight to what we saw happening in florida. Especially because it was a story ten years in the making you have to go back to senate bill ten seventy which was known as this. Show me your papers law and came at the same time period. Sheriff joe arpaio Huge anti immigrant sentiment within the government of arizona and all these young people some undocumented themselves some not took to the streets they did tons of protests and they started to organize there. Are i would say half a dozen organizations that came out of that era that now for people to vote in arizona knocked on doors to get people out to vote. Sorta sold the messaging to get people to vote not just for biden but for people down ballot. They were really trying to flip the state legislature and a lot of these organizations by the way are not big. Joe biden vans. I mean they like biden better than trump and they certainly wanted to get trump out of office but it was much more about getting trump out of office than voting for biting. It's what a lot of people have called a one time biting coalition that the group of people who voted this time joe biden or not going to be there in four years in the same formation because donald trump will not be on the ballot which means the democrats are gonna have to reconfigure a lot of their strategy while next. The florida story matters not for the national narrative this election but the fact that they were so off in what they thought was going to happen in florida from the democratic side that they lost so big to trump. I mean even those of us who were covering it at new. That trump was to do better than he added. Twenty sixteen in florida etc. The he did so much better than people thought with so many many more places that it was real devastating blow to the floor democratic party. In so that just reinforces your point that. Where does the party go from here. Because this was such a sort of unique set of circumstances. Nationally and in the st louis makes it look bleak for the future of democrats.

Biden moves forward with transition as Trump continues to refuse to concede
"That were more in the week removed from Election Day You've had a chance to go through some of the numbers. Anything surprising you but any race or just the overall view. I mean, I thought it odd that the Democrats didn't do. Don't race is fascinated by what happened. Miami Dade County. I wrote about it, you know, in September That Democrats look like they're having problems here that Trump could come on strong but like the total under tow that God created by Trump's candidacy in Miami, He wants flow of Florida's 26 congressional district. You know, the one that extends down to the keys that getting the parcel Powell represents, like he lost that by like 16. In 2016. And here he wanted by a couple of points on that swamp. New Carcel Powell put him in as an office on then the district 27 now In that case, Trump actually lost district 27, but The Jonah Shalala one of losing it, So you know, it's just It's just interesting what Trump did both in Miami Dade and in the state of large, But if you even take out Miami Dade County like Trump won the turnout war. Like motivated more voters, his voters to come out and the persuasion war he appears to have won independence. Like just just just the scope and scale of Trump's win in Florida is is big, especially when compared with the rest of the nation. Now you see what around the Santis is doing like he's got some. You know some proposals to expand the stand. Your ground law allows the use of war force to protect property. Um, Florida's going to become a much more conservative state from a government standpoint. Because I think a lot of Republicans are like Hey, look, you know we don't lose elections here. Voters want what we're serving up. We're gonna give him more of it. Yeah. You think the socialism message worked? It seemed like it Did. I mean, when you have Yeah, it seemed like it then Yeah. What? I've spoken to him. I hadn't used this yet, but you know, he said this elsewhere. Uh, he pointed out, it's you. It's not just socialism. Um, A lot of Hispanic voters, for instance, are working class and They have a sensibility that identifies a lot more with Trump. Then with what the Democrats were serving up, or certainly in Miami Dade County with what Biden was serving up, So, um, you know Rubio is talking about look at you know after Trump has gone assuming he's gone, right? Um, you know, how can the party the Republican Party both in Florida and nationally kind of build on that more working class coalition that cut across racial lines that Donald Trump appeared to have started to assemble. Now again, That's you know, even when Trump leaves, I think I think he is going to leave the White House here. All indications are that he lost, you know, lot indication that is going to run for reelection again. So you know, hang onto your seats for 2024. You know, the blue collar element was never the domain of the Republicans. I grew up in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, and that you want to take a picture. Blue collar Pennsylvania. It's that area and it went big for Trump Trump would once 58 to 42%. I just I couldn't believe it. I looked again Thought What is the big change? Or what did he do to convince blue collar workers that he's on their side? The Republicans are on their side, not the Democrats. Yeah, I think I think some of its culture. I think some of its policy like, you know, certainly In those northern states, the opposition of free trade agreements people have seen, um you know the jobs of old would go away, and they don't think the conventional politics that that Biden represented. Were adequate forum. But it is it is an interesting phenomenon. We're seeing this. The sorting that's happened in American politics is the Democratic Party is a party of intellectuals. Like the good What's a better way to say this? The highly college educated, college educated and um blacks, Latinos and the young and The Republican Party is a party, especially of working class whites, You know, as well as business, So it's those two kind of coalitions how they're they're kind of starting out. Don't know if it's gonna stay that way. But it's making for some interesting politics. Certainly here in this state. Well, obviously nationwide as well, Yeah, that's why Republicans like to use the term of leaders and, uh, the elitists on the left that seems to have stuck to finally the race. January. 5th Georges to Senate seat seems to be hard fought campaign this being natural campaigns. You're wrong about these races this week. Tell us about that. Yeah, well, I mean, Joe Biden. The success of Joe Biden's presidency is gonna hinge heavily on what happens in Georgia because if the two Democrats beat the two Republican incumbents Then the balance of power can be 50 50 in the Senate, and the tiebreaker, there would be Vice President Kamila Harris. So binds ability to kind of move. His agenda really heavily relies on this race. And Republicans know that and they're saying, Look. Yeah, fine. You know, Donald Trump might have lost by 12 14,000 votes here. They think a lot of lot of the anti Trump vote is gonna kind of disappear during a special election. And it's just going to be more about based motivation, and the Republicans think that their base in Georgia is gonna be superior to the Republican base. That they're going to prevail. Now. Rick Scott are senator is now the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. He's already got involved. He's they've already started running ads in Georgia, pointing out what Chuck Schumer The Senate minority leader from Brooklyn had set on Saturday. Like now we take Georgia and then we're gonna change the world. Well, right Change America. Yeah, he said change. America changed the world twice, so he obviously knew what he was saying. And so that that's that's gonna be front and center is front and center, the Republican messaging saying, Look, you kind of don't want to turn the Senate over to the You know, Brooklynite.

"Is decision 2020. I'm your host, Ryan Gorman. As the returns continue to come in, we're trying to get a sense as to where this race might be headed. But I got to tell you, you know, going into tonight. Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, Arizona, where three of the state so we're just gonna be really difficulty to call in advance. They were gonna be states that we were likely going to be waiting on late into the night because they were going to be so close now Florida with about 94% of the vote in that certainly appears like, although we haven't called it yet it's going to go For President Trump. He's leading right now. 51.2% to Joe Biden at 47.8% and this story in Florida, taking a look now with Miami Dade's numbers coming in a bit more so than what we had earlier about 95% of the votes are in in Miami Dade County and Joe Biden. Leading president Trump 53 to 46 in that county. But you know, that is not where the Biden campaign wanted to be. That was a county where Hillary Clinton beat then candidate Donald Trump 63 to 34 so huge under performance by the Biden campaign in Miami Dade and the Hispanic vote, particularly the Cuban vote really made a big difference there and likely changed the course of the election. In Florida. I take a look at some of the other areas. You know, Hillsborough County to Tampa Bay area. Joe Biden coming in at about 52.7%. Hillary Clinton was at about 51%. Not quite the increased the Biden campaign was hoping for their Florida was a state that the president had to get. It looks like he's going to get it, and that is just that's that's a big deal for President Trump. If you look at some of the modeling some of the probabilities When the president takes Florida It really changes the dynamic he goes from. You know what a lot of models had, as maybe a 10% chance at winning the Electoral College. And once Florida goes, Trump You're talking about over 30%. Then we're looking at North Carolina. If that goes Trump right now, he's got a little under 1% point lead that just adds to the mo mentum that could put him over the top. But he's not quite there yet, and we're keeping a close eye on some of these rust belt states and now Arizona as the vote comes in there That could be a tipping point state is well, Rory Let me bring you into this. What is it that you've seen over the last 10 minutes or so that stood out to you? Because we're really going minute by minute here is coming to pass. It Really? Is that really that small turnout for that small Margin of victory for Biden in Miami Dade is a big problem for him. Seeing how those results are coming in in the Panhandle is well. We also saw those statewide referendum in Florida, increasing the minimum wage, which you think would be a big democratic boost. But we're not seeing those numbers. Translate S O that That's what's interesting there. Pennsylvania not going to be counting anymore. Absentee mail in ballots Tonight They're going to wait and do that again. Tomorrow morning. George has got some technical problems, so you know, buckle up because get comfortable. This is going to take a while. Well, what is that all about? Vania. I mean, what? We're all working. Everybody's up watching. Well, what do they got to take a break and they gotta get a good night's sleep before they can continue counting the votes. Government work must be North Carolina. This is a state that really, really tightened up. I would say, probably an hour and a half ago, o R. So when the When the first batch of votes came in in North Carolina, you had Jill Biden with about 78% lead and like we've been saying all night long Once that election day, turn out, started to show up. Everything got real tight. And right now you've got a race between President Trump and show bind with 89% of the vote in less than 1% Point separates the two. It's a little bit hard, Tio kind of going through the map, trying to get a sense as to where those votes are. To know which way this thing might go in. Wake County. Where Rollie is you got about 87% of the votes being reported there, you know again. The election day turn out favors Republicans, but in some of these bluer counties, how much will it actually favor Republicans? Or do Democrats have a chance to maybe make a bit of a comeback that something? We're also watching in Ohio? Right? Because how much of this early voting was covert related versus how much was done out of, you know, political desire from from either party? We normally give the Democrats a mail in because they're aggressive and one toe unseat the incumbent, But now you have the covert vote was in there, too. So we don't know really? How much of that vote is based on Ah, candidate or based on a disease and taking a look at Ohio right now, So you've got President Trump with about a 5% point lead 74% of the votes are in. But as I'm going through the map most of the outstanding votes Aaron the more urban areas like Cleveland, Toledo, Cincinnati, Columbus, So How is it gonna break is the election day vote that leans more Republican going to carry the president? Or can Joe Biden make up that 5% with a surge in those bluer counties? That's what we're going to be watching in Ohio? You're listening.

"I would reference Miami Dade County, which has a very robust continuity of learning plan that was put into place in anticipation of hurricanes. But it's very appropriate here. The state of Florida has said in the fall, parents and students need to be able to count on a five day a week in person school situation and where those parents or where that situation suggests something else for the For a short period of time. There have to be plans to have learning continue 100% of the time. Full time in a different setting, so Miami Dade has won all Thai forms for students to continue to learn. I have one last question, Secretary DeVos Because both you and the president have threatened to cut off funding for school systems that don't open fully in the fall. Here you are. If schools aren't going to reopen again, That's you breaking that promise. And so why should they receive funds for something? They're not going to Dio? And president from tweeted Friday. Schools must be open in the fall. If not open. Why would the federal government give funding? It won't two quick questions that I need a quick answer if I can from you, secretary Device one Under what authority? Are you and the president going to unilaterally cut off funding the funding that's been approved for cons from Congress, and most of the money goes to disadvantaged students or students with disabilities. And secondly, isn't cutting off funding exactly the wrong answer. Don't you want to spend more money to make schools safer,.

President trump is threatening to cut off federal funding for states that don't move as fast as he'd liked. But many educators worry that the administration is putting speed ahead of safety. Well, joining me now is alburto Kavala. Is the Superintendent of the Miami Dade Public? Schools district in Florida. It's the fourth largest in the country will disclosure. By? Public School system that I grew up with Mr Carballo welcome to meet the press. Let me just ask a straightforward question. The president implied. Do you find the CDC guidelines for reopening schools? Too strict into expensive. Number one good morning. Thank you so much for the evasion. Look, we've gone through the CDC guidelines they have informed are reopening plan right here in Miami Dade. In collaboration with guidance from the local and state health departments, there are some provisions in in the recommendations from the CDC that yes, may be costly about to. Obviously we take them very seriously. You know the issue of social distancing in one school in Miami. Dade or Broward Palm Beach Rather districts may be difficult to achieve, but there are mitigation strategies that you can take in lieu of the six feet at distancing a light, the wearing masks which will be mandatory. Element when we do reopen. Like the use of nontraditional spaces like cafeterias or a media, centers or gymnasiums a so we are looking carefully at the CDC guidelines. We are consulting with the health department and I came up with a reopening plan that quite frankly lifts the best possible practices for implementation with aggressive mitigation strategies when those practices are impossible to to implement in Miami, Dade. I'm curious. Are you getting the money for this? Well the Federal Government you know during its first stimulus package, and the Zach has appropriated about nine hundred million dollars for the state of Florida The governor controls about one hundred and thirty, seven million, and then the rest of the allocation comes directly to school districts, so we received a significant early investment. But that's not going to be sufficient. I mean obviously it is clear on the basis of economic conditions. I think will trail the current health crisis. The much more will need beer marked just as a measure of comparison during the last great recession of two thousand eight nine in excess of thirteen billion dollars had already been I'm sorry next one hundred thirteen billion dollars already been infested nationally to protect Kate twelve institutions at this point. Fifteen billion so I think that for the purchase of PP's additional disinfection cycles, electrostatic infection of schools, alteration of schedules, many more bus routes to achieve greater social distancing between the riders unlikely we will need additional resources earmarked specifically for local governments and school systems. You, you have a hybrid approach. You want to give parents a choice quite a few. Districts are are offering this. You can go full online if you want or some form of a partial in in person until you're able to get to till. Miami is able to get through phase three in the reopening process. I'm curious. Have you thought about bringing elementary school students back five days a week, but middle school and high school holding off Some of the scientific data are your health advisor saying that that might be A. Compromise in order to get younger kids who don't appear to spread the viruses much in their everyday, but older kids, maybe not. Short todd number one are reopening plan has been from the very beginning informed by health experts individuals who have distinguished themselves in the area of medicine and public health and our plan as we modify, will continue to be informed by those same individuals. In fact, this Tuesday were bringing them back to reexamine our plan in collaboration with the county mayor to make sure that we have not only a unified voice unified set of data and gating criteria that we shall monitor for the appropriate ever Lucien in terms reopening our school system, but what you just said is absolutely right, so our plan relies on a five day a week. Schooling experience in. Across all of Miami Dade in addition to based on parents, option a my school online, which is a synchronous remote teaching and learning opportunity for parents, and then a possibility of hybrid models that rely on the alternate cohort of students, spending part of the time in school and part of the time at home on the basis of utilization or capacity limitations in schools, one of the Amish that we keep looking at this exactly that younger children, perhaps students with disabilities to a certain extent English language learners. some of those that by virtue of age, but also by virtue of the greatest possibility for learning loss since last fall, need to re-engage quickly in the best possible with teaching, which is face to face with a caring professional teacher. Very quick very quickly. Mr Superintendent. Extracurricular activities I'm thinking football marching band things like that. Is that likely out for the for the early part of the fall for sure? We are now in conversations with the with the states Athletic Commission to make decisions about everyone sport. Certainly, it's easier to envision tennis being practiced in a safe way. Then it is wrestling or football a, but we are probably progressively be opening sometime later July. Some training camps with extreme social distancing opportunity for kids to begin to re engage look the last thing I'd like to say is this. we're going to obviously do our very best in our community. Considering where the health data currently is a positivity rate of twenty nine point one percent a month ago, it was at six percent. Our start to the school year is six weeks from now. It is quite possible if the social behavior and the restrictions in place if people wear masks, if people exercise social distancing that conditions may be appropriate and healthy for students to return to the very best model of teaching learning, which is in person, but we need the community's collaboration. We need the science to drive the practice rather than politics influencing what is legitimately community concern.

"In Florida a Miami Dade police officer has been relieved of duty after video emerged of him hitting a black woman at the Miami International Airport yesterday. Body Cam footage shows the woman arguing with the officer before she moved just inches away from his face, and it escalates from. You just heard the officer hitting the woman. She then falls to the ground as more police. Rush into the frame, the Miami Dade Police Director Alfredo Ramirez says he was shocked and angered by the video and has asked the Miami Dade State Attorney to investigate the use of force Miami Herald reporter. David Ovalles has been covering this and David, the body cam footage begins after the woman and the police officer appear to have already been in something of a dispute. Do? We know how this started. Yes, so the woman is twenty one year old pairs, Anderson she was at the airport and had missed a flight, so she was according to the police yelling at the ticket agent. They call. The police tried to calm her down according to them, you see her yelling at the police officer taunting him about one point. He kind of steps back. Back a little bit, and then she steps into his face, and then he claims it was a head bud, and then he just you know delivers a slap. That <hes> is very visceral when you watch it, it is for sure and when you see the video, and from what you can tell from your reporting a in reference to the officer saying that she had headbutted him. Is there any indication that that had happened in? What are you hearing about whether? It would have been an appropriate response to hit her like that. I wouldn't say it's a head, but but certainly one could argue that perception, but as for whether it's inappropriate use of force. It's it's Kinda hard to tell I mean in Florida. The stand your ground law allows anybody not just police officers, no duty to retreat so whether it would be a criminal charge that's going to be debatable. Certainly administrative you talk to police, officers and I've had more than a few reach out to me and say that's absolutely how they're taught. They call it a diversionary strike. Now there's the other element in that. She wasn't wearing a mask and so there's this whole Cova vid angle as well so it's messy. It's not. optically, it looks really really bad <hes>, but I think there's going to be a lot more nuance to a case like this. Then a few of the other use of force cases we've seen in south Florida in the last couple of weeks. Right and look tensions between black people and white officers has been at the center of so many of these cases that we've been. been talking about. But how are people reacting to this incident? Given the both the woman and the officer are black well. That's one of the sort of grey areas that POPs up in Miami more than than other places because we are such diverse community, white officers here are in the minority. Most are Hispanic and there's a pretty good amount of black officers here to. In this case, the officer Tony Rodriguez is a black Puerto Rican officer, so there is a sort of added element of that you know I. Think a case like this also underscores what a lot of block officers are feeling in terms of tension and conflict block officers really know too well what it's like to grow up black, but also feel very conflicted because they're devoted to their jobs, and they feel like they're being singled out as quote, unquote sellouts, and so it also underscores. A lot of the dynamics in these really precarious times.

"That only sixteen percent of Hispanic workers and nineteen percent of black workers are in jobs in which they can tell a work or work from home. So that is part of what this issue is. L. E. L.. She MSNBC ANCHOR in economics correspondent. Thanks a lot. My pleasure. The latest New York Times Sienna College. Poll shows former Vice President Joe. Biden head of president trump by fourteen points. Good News. You're a Democrat right well. Maybe Not Hillary Clinton was way ahead at this point in the summer of Twenty Sixteen and here's Steve, Kornacki for years ago on MSNBC. Could we be seeing our first true landslide in a long time, a double digit landslide? That is Clinton's lead in four polls now. That of course did not happen. So what do we make of the polls in Twenty Twenty Kyle conduct is managing editor of Salvador's crystal. Ball out of the University of Virginia Center for Politics and he joins us now kyle welcome. Thanks for having me and let's start with the lay of the land here. What's the state of the twenty twenty campaign at the start of July? look I mean I. Think Joe Biden is leading by a considerable amount. It looks like his polling. Lead nationally is somewhere in the neighborhood of nine or ten points, or so he also seems to be leading. Most surveys of the key swing states not all surveys, but almost all of them, and if you consider kind of the the big six swing states to be. Arizona Florida North Carolina in the Sun Belt and Pennsylvania Michigan Wisconsin in the industrial north. There have been a lot of surveys that have shown up by leading in all those states and We've also seen confirmation of the polls in some ways in the president's campaign spending in that for instance he recently booked eighteen million dollars of television airtime for the fall in Ohio which is historically very important swing state, but it's one that President one eight points in two thousand sixteen is. Is a state that historically is a little bit more important for Republicans and Democrats so the polls kind of match up with campaign activity to some degree, and when you dig into those numbers in the demographics, what's surprising to you about the relative strength or weakness of either candidate? Because I see Joe Biden looks like he's doing pretty well with older voters. For instance. Yeah, there's been some indication that bind may actually be leading with senior citizens, and you know in recent American elections the. Kind of the younger you are the likely to vote democratic. The older you are likely to Republican, and that's not how it always is. In fact, you could go back to the two thousand presidential election for instance, and they're actually wasn't that much of a van age gap in that election, but in more recent elections seniors have been a more reliably. Republican group according to the National Exit Poll. Donald Trump won seniors by about seven points in two thousand sixteen, and again Biden may or may not be leading with with seniors, but it seems. Seems like he's doing a little bit better at least than Hillary Clinton did. And also one other trend that's notable. Is that non white voters are gonNA vote Democratic as a group pretty overwhelmingly Biden's. He's doing just about as well as maybe. Hillary Clinton did with non white voters, but the difference is white voters in that white voters who have a four year college degree, which is a group that used to be Republican, and now is trending Democratic Biden. His is seems to be doing significantly better than even Hillary. Clinton did with those voters. And also white voters who do not have a four year college degree that's a group that's become heavily Republican of Biden his cut trump's lead with those voters, and so it seems like to the extent by doing better than Clinton. It's more among white voters collectively the non white vote, so all of this may be giving Democrats Nice, little, warm, feeling in their bellies or maybe. Maybe, not, because if you look back to the early summer of two thousand sixteen, there was a Washington Post ABC News poll that showed Hillary Clinton leading trump fifty one to thirty nine percent. That's about a twelve point margin in. It's not far from the numbers that were seeing right now today for Joe Biden. But are we comparing apples to apples here between these two elections? Look if you want to argue as I think the president. Some of the president's supporters have that the polls did. Ended up being wrong to some degree, particularly some of them in the summertime in two thousand sixteen, and therefore they might be wrong in two thousand twenty. That's crazy to argue that, but let me give you a few differences. First of all Biden's aggregate national lead right now is a little bit bigger nationally than Hillary. Clinton's was and one of the things that I think is really important here is that. Biden. Are there fewer undecided voters in these polls? If you if you look at the polls, just matching trump versus Clinton head to head in early July of two thousand sixteen, you might have had about fifteen percent undecided. Whereas now it's more like only ten percent undecided and what ended up happening. was that are a lot of people who said they were going to go third party a lot? Lot of people who said they were undecided and I think some of those folks are more of those folks broke toward trump at the end. If there are fewer undecided voters, there's less of a chance at the polls are going to be wrong, so that's not to say that Biden is one hundred percent lead pipe lock to win the election I. Don't really feel that way but his. Is is pretty good right now and I think even compared to this time for years ago I think position is is better than Hillary Clinton's. You Know Kyle I heard some conjecture on Fox News recently that if a pollster say from the New, York Times called a trump supporter and asked who they would be supporting in the fall that actually maybe people might be purposely misleading the pollsters. Is that a real thing is? That's something that we should be worried about. There are some pollsters who have looked at this, and maybe with some idea that maybe trump would do better and online polls than that one's in which you've got a live caller calling a responded because of this now social acceptability bias in which may be people don't want to verbally say they're supporting trump. There hasn't been much evidence of that of this sort of like shy trump a fact although you do hear it from time to time I think particularly. Particularly from Republicans. Maybe there's something there and again. Maybe we're sitting here in October and the numbers are closer, but I will say this. If Biden is leading by the kinds of amounts that he is right now in the fall, it would take a much more significant polling error, particularly in the swing states for the pulsed ended up being wrong, so I think if trump really wants to win, he does have to get closer. He doesn't necessarily have to be. Be leading nationally though because we have to remember that he was able to win the Electoral College in Twenty. Sixteen even though we lost the national popular vote by two points so again, if trump gets closer, I think we should be more prepared for an upset, but really by his head been a good position for much of the election but particularly lately it seems like the President stompers have kind curdled a little bit over the last month, but. But that's not guaranteed to continue either right. We are a long way from November. Who knows what's going to happen with this pandemic? Who knows what's going to happen with the economy? Not to mention all of the tensions, this country's going through over the issue of race. So those will all play into the Twenty Twenty Campaign Cayo Conduct is managing editor of Sabah's Crystal Ball out of the University of Virginia Center for Politics Kyle Nice to speak with you. Thanks for having me. Well the comparisons to twenty sixteen. Do have some Democrats concerned including Maria Cardona Democratic strategist who writes in the hill. The Biden's big lead should worry Democrats. Maria is here with us now and Maria double digit lead in the national polls sounds pretty good for your party. So why are you saying that Biden supporters should be worried? Well because I. Think we need to revisit what happened in two thousand, sixteen and I know that you just had a great conversation with Kyle, and and not only that though I do as Kyle mentioned as well, there are some significant differences between now, and what happened in two, thousand sixteen and some fundamental changes that has that happened in the electorate that are no..

"This brighter job picture comes even as the US reported nearly fifty thousand new cases of Covid nineteen yesterday and many states are now putting their reopening plans on hold. Some are closing businesses for a second time for more now. Let's bring in Ellie vel she. MSNBC anchor in economics reporter highly. Finally saw so as we heard there. The presence is pretty enthusiastic about the numbers today, but given that the June jobs report likely doesn't reflect the rise in infections and states such as California now closing bars and restaurants once again and even fireworks displays this weekend. are not supposed to happen. How does he asked? SHOULD WE BE? Well I think we have to look at the the way. The data is gathered right. The monthly jobs survey is compiled between June. Seventh and thirteenth, basically between the you know the beginning of in the middle of the month that's before coronavirus cases began to spike in the big states, including in Florida re spiking in California, Arizona and several other states and we also have. Have the weekly initial unemployment claims and we know that since June twentieth that was the Fifteenth Straight Week of unemployment claims that exceeded one million, so we sort of have to accept that we're in this time where the data's going to be competing and on a lag. Obviously, it's good that some people are coming back I. Think going back to work I. Think it's not. Accurate, for the president to suggest the economy is roaring back and whatever these numbers are, they'll have been a dip. Since the survey was taken one of the industries that had picked up a little bit last month was hospitality and we're hearing from some restaurant owners who say they probably have to close for good as reopenings are being delayed. What do we know so far about how many restaurants are having to close permanently? Well so the jobs number we saw one and a half million jobs added in June, so of all the job gains in this job report thirty percent are from hospitality, but the sector is still way down. There are a number of restaurants a according to the National Restaurant Association Association, there are six hundred sixty thousand restaurants that have closed in in the country. Three percent of them are closed permanently, and many more of them will now be closing. A number of restaurants have said they could maintain themselves for two months or three months. That becomes very difficult because the average restaurant in America doesn't have that sort of they. They work off of cash flow. Most restaurant owners give themselves a fifteen percent chance of surviving according to a poll by the National Bureau of Economic Research. If Corona, virus lasts for six months and we're. We're now almost at that point. I'll ask you one other thing. There was some racial data in the Labor Department's report today. Whites have the lowest unemployment rate at ten percent blacks, the highest at fifteen, Hispanic, and Asian unemployment slightly lower hovering around fourteen. What's driving these disparities? Well in general African Americans earn less other quicker to be laid off their slower to be rehired, and they're less likely to be promoted. That's a normal situation outside of krona virus, but right now black and Hispanic workers are most likely to be in the types of jobs affected by crow virus that can't be done remotely, and that require face to face contact like food service, hospitality, manufacturing, temporary work nursing The statistics indicate that only sixteen percent of Hispanic workers and nineteen percent of black workers are in jobs in which they can tell a work or work from home. So that is part of what this issue is. L. E..
