Editor-in-chief of the National Journal, Jeff Dufour, Discusses Manchin's Role in Senate Negotiations
"Let's go live now, with an update on Skype to Jeff Do. Four editor in chief of National Journal. Jeff in the plainest language possible. What did mansion get that caused him to change his mind and end this Well in the context of a $1.9 trillion bill. Uh, not much. These air presents pretty small provision that took nine hours. The final deal essentially is $300 per week of federal unemployment assistance through the end of August, the house had wanted 400. Said. It's bringing it down to 300. It was originally supposed to expire at the end of September. Now it's going to expire at the end of August. Essentially now one of mansions things was he wanted Tonto. To exempt the taxi. You want to accept the tax exemptions from this two households making over $150,000 a year so currently, if you get these jobless benefits, you can deduct tow up to 10,000 of that from from your taxes. He said. That shouldn't apply. If you make more than 100 $50,000 a year in your household, and it appears the Senate is going to agree to that now, the votes technically still open, even though they supposedly have a deal. I mean time wise. A lot was made out of Senator Ron Johnson last night, forcing the clerk to read the entire bill, which took hours. But this one vote on one Amendment has now taken longer than that did last night. And this is the first vote in what they billed as a vote A Rama quote unquote to come. So they're in for a lot of overtime in the Senate this weekend, the Senate record as you mentioned for longest vote has been broken again because all of this the previous record was from back in 2019. Is this something like the longest vote a sign of serious dysfunction on the hill? Or is it a sign of something else? I don't know The dysfunction is any greater than it has been in years past, which is still pretty significant, But it's combining that dysfunction with a 50 50 senate. I think I think we know a couple things now going forward Number one. This bill is probably going to go to the house like this weekend. Like you said, we're barring anything else on foreseen. They're gonna sense that the president for his signature, it's gonna give Biden his first big victory as president. But maybe more importantly, we know now that any significant legislation like this is going to be a real slaughter and a real challenge to pass vote Counting is critical. And there's all kinds of procedural hurdles that a senator, One senator can throw in the way in a 50 50 Senate now that applies to three bills at the House passed this past week that high up on their agenda. The voting rights package. The George Floyd policing reform and extending civil rights toe LGBT Q Americans, It's going to apply the unorganized labor bill and and gun legislation that they hope to pass this week. Those five just to name a few are all going to need 60 votes in the Senate. And if I were a betting man, I'd say they're not going to get it for most of them. President Biden, who you could almost jokingly say it's still a senator. He's you know, inextricably linked to the U. S. Senate, he called mansion directly. One wonders whether this deal could have been done without the president's efforts. And some people, I suppose, would be encouraged to see that he's getting involved. Others would say, Man, it's a bad sign that the president has to get directly involved like that. And I would also say this is probably not going to be the last conversation that by the mansion have during this Congress, because, uh, mansion is for people who count these things. Mansion is the most centrist member of the entire Senate. He is the swing vote. In the Democratic caucus, and he's the most important vote in the Senate right now, and he knows it. He's gonna exact every bit of power he can out of this toe, get what he wants for his state and for his And just for his for his views to make sure that whatever passes the Senate reflects his
Takeaways from the last presidential debate of 2020
"See Red states and blue states. What I see is American United States. Look, nobody knew what this thing was. Nobody knew where it was coming from what it was. We've learned a lot. The final presidential debate behind us now, about a week and a half away from the election of dozen days, really, or less. National Journal editor in Chief Jeff to four is with US. Live on Skype, Jeff. One thing we can say right out of the box. One does not come away from this exchange. With that throbbing headache. It was civil. You could follow the subject matter at least did that help either candidate, particularly that the temperature was far lower tonight? I think it still felt like like a bit of a draw to me. Just a lower temperature draw the last time you're right. I think if you if you beamed in here from 1992, it still would have seemed recognizable as a presidential debate. Starting even with the first segment they had on Corona virus strategy. They had some some back and forth, but it was pretty civil. We can list off the topics they discussed. Corona virus, immigration, health foreign policy. Our race with the last one, Can you even? Ah, Can you even remember what they discussed? And in what order? I'm not sure I can, and we talked about it for five minutes on air. What exchange? Did you find? Most interesting. Well, I I thought that the initial exchange on Corona virus really encapsulated What the what The knight was, If that's all you watched, you probably came out with a good sense of things. Trump said again, he said, this dozens of times it's going to go away. We're turning the corner. And he's saying this. As this week cases, air spiking and deaths are spiking again, just about everywhere. So it's just does not comport with the reality on the ground right now. The other moment that I think people are really going to seize on is when things turned to immigration and race, Trump Really held it together until then, for about an hour, And then, about an hour in they went to immigration. He again referred to murderers and rapists coming across the border from Mexico. And then he said, the only immigrants who show up for their hearings of the ones with quote really low IQ's So it was. It was a cringe inducing moment. And then on top of that they went to race, and he tried to say yet again that he's been the best president for Black Americans. Since maybe since Abraham Lincoln, which is Did overheated rhetoric to say the least. I'm not equivocating here. Anything that you've just said to now, Let's find out what Joe Biden did wrong. But I did notice, some stumbling, some stammering from Biden. That is an issue with him at debates. What were some of his weaker moments? It is. I mean, Trump wasn't there to interrupt him, But he interrupted himself more than more than a few times hey, tends to get caught up in his words loses his train of thought a little bit, especially when it came back to bite him, especially when he was trying to explain his health care plan. He did very, very well going at Trump about Trump's lack of a plan. But then, when he was called on to explain his own plan, it was it was hard to follow. Even for anybody who's been in that issue, much less for for a voter in their living room. Who's just coming to this issue right now? And what about the issue of Hunter Biden this laptop? We are trying to emphasize to callers to our newsroom that this New York Post story is full of red flags. It's It doesn't hold water, and until we get some more information, it's difficult to go with that laptop. For Biden story. That being said, Is that still a weak point for Joe Biden in some way. I sort of thought that exchange was was also a draw, and I think people probably voters. I think we're well served by the fact that they didn't spend that much time on it. And they didn't get a chance to really get deep in and litigate all the nitty gritty parts of this story because it's raise you say it's really hard to litigate right now. Biden, generally speaking didn't take the bait. He just would say. That's not true. Everything you're saying is not true. I've never accepted a dime from from foreign governments. He didn't really get into the into the sense ofthe weather. The laptop is Israel Whether the emails are authentic what his son was doing. He's just trying to keep T keep the focus on his own behavior, and whether or not he accepted money from foreign governments, and that was probably the smart thing to do to give it the least amount of oxygen possible. We'll talk again soon, Jeff, Thank you so much. You better take care that

Norah ODonnell, anchor of the CBS Evening News
"Today O'Donnell joins us on skin from the couch. She is the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News, making her the third woman ever to so anger, a network evening broadcasts before taking the helm of the evening news. She was the CO host of CBS this morning for seven years norad. Thank you for joining us welcome skin from the couch. Thank you for having me, so we're GONNA. Start off with Skim your resume for us. Will I went to Georgetown University I was Law Sophy Major? I was interested in a lot of different things in college so I had internships at always worked and worked at a law firm I. worked at the World Bank, and and then I injured ABC News and I think you know journalism really was what was the right fit for me? Just a deep curiosity about the news, deep curiosity about world events and people have to graduating from college I got a job at National Journal on a publication, a called the hotline, which was the original kind of aggregate her of news before the Huffington. Post and others got into the business of aggregating news. Even like you guys in some way, remember it well, and that also was like a crash course in politics, too, because we would. Sum Up every Senate and House race across the country, all the polling who all the key consultants were, so that really was a great crash course in politics, and then I got hired at NBC and MSNBC when I was twenty five years old to be you know it was one of the youngest correspondents at NBC history, and had a great career at NBC and had three kids, and then we all work on intelligent news underwear like personal services contracts. All of us have anywhere from two to five year contracts. In, so you know in each of those contracts, come up! You have an opportunity to reevaluate your next step and CBS came to me with an incredible offer to be. The chief White House correspondent for Obama's last term, and to be the substitute anchor for face, the nation, and I had always been ambitious about wanting to anchor a Sunday broadcast I love politics, and so to be able to substitute for the legendary Bob Schieffer at thought. This is really an an excellent opportunity, so. and. CBS. News and then Kinda. The rest is history should I keep going? No, that was perfect so something you definitely don't know I. and turned at MVP when I was nineteen in the specials unit, and I was like my first week on the internships. Let's say day two or three in you opt into the office. And you're the first professional famous news anchor I ever seen in person and I literally I stopped breathing I was so excited all I wanted to do is to be a news anchor at the time, and I was so nervous, and when you walked out of the room I asked one of the producers. What is she liked you work with her I will never. Never forget their like she's the best of the best, and I was like what makes her so good. And they said that she always does her homework and I think about that a lot and I'm curious. What is something that you your fans and people like us your big fans? What does the thing that we don't know about you that we can't Google? What I wasn't as good about doing my homework in college. And I did just fine at Georgetown. But I do I think certainly a professional that is dry. Always did know my homework because I do believe that preparation builds confidence and confidence build success, and so for me, you know certainly early on my career as a young correspondent with so many famous people at NBC legendary careers. My confidence wasn't a tie, and so I thought how can I be the smartest person in the room and no more than anybody else and. You know I just really did my homework. I really worked really hard to make sure I knew everything. The thing that people may not know about me. You Know I. Guess would be that I'm from a military family. You know I mean that certainly is my resume, but it's the one thing I mentioned because you know I remember in covering certainly the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq after nine eleven, a lot of people would say on television and Mike Barnicle on morning. Joe would say this a lot that Oh, no less than one percent of people have someone in the military who didn't understand these wars, but I grew up in the military. My father was drafted during the Vietnam War. State for thirty years I lived overseas and so I really do have a deep appreciation for those who serve my sister-in-law surgeon in the army and so I do have a really keen sense of the sacrifice that many people go through, and I do in some ways I almost wish that it was mandatory almost like in Israel that we had to sir because. I think you know certainly the discipline that they have is unlike anything I've seen those who sir. Let's actually start with that because I think it's fascinating talking about how you grew up and living overseas. How did this love of news and growing up with that military background kind of come together for you? You know I think one of the. First crystallized for me in some ways when Elena, Nachman Ost, who is still the vice president of talent at NBC? News said to me when I met her. When I was twenty five years old, and she said you know we like hiring correspondents who have from a military background, because they're very flexible and adaptable. They don't complain about being sent to different cities or states or around. Around the world they can talk to anybody because they've sort of been put in that situation where they have to be totally adaptable. Moment's notice
Young Republicans: The new climate activists? Maybe.
"Know the polling says young Republicans want climate action. But it's the public shift from party leaders that I just find hard to believe. The Republicans have ridiculed climate science installed climate action for more than a decade. Do you believe these new messages from party leaders for real yes definitely. I think this is real. The question is to what effect clearly something new is happening. I've had a number of conversations with folks who work on the hill who all say the same thing that Republicans are talking really differently about this issue behind closed doors fewer and fewer of them are rejecting the science. And they're feeling real public pressure to talk about it. We're GONNA hear about why later on in the show and now this is playing out publicly. So you've got Republican leadership saying they're gonNA put together this package of bills to address emissions and there is of course a lot of skepticism which you address but there's no doubt there's a shift happening both in private and in public. Yeah you know. I've got some strong feelings on on this which I'm happy to share. But first let's hear from a reporter. Who spent a lot of time figuring out what's up with? Republicans on the issue of climate. Change Amy harder is a climate and energy reporter with axios. She's been covering the issue for well over a decade at the National Journal Than The Wall Street Journal and now at Axios. She broke the story of the new Republican climate. Push and our co host. Jeff Nesbit sat down with amy to unpack it so it it does feel like there has been a shift. I mean you know you talk to Senator Sheldon Whitehouse. He says that he has private conversations with Republican. Senators all the but there's been a public shift for Republicans On climate fairly recently. Are you seeing that in your reporting? Well we're starting to see them. I've described it as coming back in from the cold because this isn't where the Republican Party has always been so you're seeing them number one acknowledge that climate change is a real problem That deserves some sort of response now. There's a huge debate about how big that response should be. But in general You're not seeing comments from lawmakers particularly in the House that are really out there on left field when it comes to the science. I recently sat down with three top. Republicans House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy Congressman Graves of Louisiana. I'm in Congressman Westerman A Republican from Arkansas Ed. There was this interesting Exchange Between Westerman and graves when Western said something that didn't really fit with the scientific consensus of climate change. I immediately saw graves jump in and clarify so. There is a very acute concern within the Republican Party. That at the very least they don't want to fight the science and this is of course a long ways away from where Democrats and a lot of the public and corporations are but nonetheless it is a shift to stop fighting the science. So let's let's let's dive into that a little bit. What's in those new proposals from some of the house? Republicans I would say there's three main components of the Republicans plan which is to be introduced over the coming weeks and months the first one has to do with capturing carbon emissions from variety of sources. So that can be by planting more trees in in theory that would capture more carbon the other tube Parts of this plan include a ramping up clean. Energy Technologies and clean energy technology exports so giving special tax treatment to companies that export clean energy important here to note that the definition of clean energy is of course very much in the eye of the beholder. Republicans are in Wide Agreement. That NATURAL GAS. Which is the cleanest burning fossil fuel but still very much a fossil fuel with the climate impact? That counts is clean energy so expediting pipelines for example to move natural gas as part of their clean energy plan. Which a lot of Democrats and many in environmentalists would take issue with and then the third pillar is actually not directly related to climate change but more focused on plastic pollution And so this would give foreign aid to countries in Asia and Africa which is actually where most of the most polluted rivers are with plastic. The climate angle is that oil natural gas at the bedrock aplastic. So there's that connection So those those are the three main components and I've pressed McCarthy in Western and graves on this asking them if they have some sort of goal reduction goal of emissions at they hope to achieve the the answer to that is no that they sort of reject. This idea graves used the term arbitrary targets. I think most experts say having some sort of goal is good for trying to achieve any sort of outcome. I think time will tell. The devil is in the details to see if they can really say that they'll be any sort of concrete reduction of emissions with these policies. Which is of course the whole goal. So what so? What are you seeing learning behind the scenes that that that might explain? What's driving this chain change? Why is this happening now? I think one really compelling arguments that Republicans are being receptive to. Is this idea of course that it all comes down to politics that they've been given a polling that shows younger. Republican voters are really not liking. How their leaders are disavowing? The science they want their Republican leaders to at the very least acknowledged the science and put forward a range of relatively moderate policies. And so I think that's really driving them and and people often say they're just doing this for political purposes and that seems like a throwaway line but in fact compared to where we were a decade ago. I think it's quite significant. That Republicans see climate has not acting on climate change as a political liability. And that's an incredibly important shifts because the politics do need to shift when it comes to climate change if there's ever going to be big policy so what's what's the reaction to these proposals I within the Republican caucus but then also among their colleagues on the democratic side. Stephanie been all over the map. You have some environmentalists and Democrats that think that this is just another way to deny science another way to keep stonewalling big action and then you have other Democrats. I think con- Congressman. Paul Tonko is a good example Democrat from New York. They see this movement as not enough but definitely better than nothing and a big shift from a few years ago. I interviewed Jason Grandma. The president of the bipartisan Policy Center. Who has been integral in a lot of these debates and while he described the big emphasis on trees as quote aggressive gardening he also applauded the Republicans for making this shift. What Jason Grandma also said is that Democrats environmentalists should not chide these Republicans for not doing enough yet because it's a process and although it certainly not moving fast enough for some for some critics that it's certainly moving so what what is climate looked like as a voting issue in two thousand twenty and beyond and will that have an impact on the Republican. Party's outlook on this issue. So I posted a question recently to Frank Luntz. Many people may know him as Well known Republican pollster so. I posed the question to him about are these Republican policies about trees and plastic and clean energy technologies. Is that going to be enough to convince voters? And he says while trees are great. Voters are going to want more and I'll be interested to see if that's the case. I think you'll have a positive impact from not denying the science but I think as climate change becomes a worse problem. I do think there'll be a call to do more however also note that so far to date. We have not seen voters around the world support big climate policies. And so. That's what I've called the big climate disconnect and. I think that's something that's an open question. Voters say. They're concerned about climate change. But do they really support the big policies? That would actually make a difference and I think the answer to that is is. We don't know
"national journal" Discussed on AM 1350 WEZS
"Do remember that this is the radio show where we think for ourselves and make the others the measure over conduct and wise that friends because terrible place to be when your brains are in someone else's head now for those that want to learn a little something today. Just learn it from these statistics. Okay. I want to show you how to people have been put up in the face of the American people to options both handpicked one being used to drive support to the other. And this all the while knowing exactly what they were doing. The American people are still too naive to believe that these people are really doing this. But this is what history teaches us here. Let me give you hard facts back in. What year was it in two thousand thirteen. I'm sorry. Not in two thousand thirteen around there about so I'm just going back, and I'm breaking this up a little bit. And I'm going backwards on this article. When Hillary Clinton, I kicked off her presidential campaign in Iowa just to show, you how this works just to show you that everything that's happening. That's taking you and your country down. Now right now friends. Is premised on a lie in the media is using the tactic of Solan ski by causing you to believe that there's a lot more of them than there really is. No, I'm not saying that we're not in a lot of trouble with Russia and China and other people in we're in trouble with them. Because of what we've allowed our politicians to do to their perspective countries. That's a fact, okay. But I want you to understand again, how Hillary Clinton I matter of fact, I asked the question how was it that Hillary Clinton was ever put in a position to run for the presidency of the United States of America all the well, knowing when we were driving around the country during that campaign, we see nothing but Hillary for prison Hillary for jail, we've seen tons of website set up for Hillary for prison Hillary for jail, and we were promised that by the current administration who has failed to do not even a jot or tittle concerning the fulfilling of his promises to date. How was it that she was ever chose to be the president of the United States of America? How could she ever gotten to the point where she got without the help of the CIA controlled media now, I hope you heard everything I just said because I understood it perfectly, and I hope you did too. Her Iowa kickoff event. I'm trying to say this really slow because it's almost unbelievable. When Hillary Clinton kicked off her presidential campaign, the national journal reported that a whopping twenty two people showed up. I'm to let that sink in. Twenty two people showed up France the national journal reported. A whopping twenty two people showed up gone are the soaring speeches and the big rally crowds. They report swapped out for a roundtable discussion and meet and greets with local activists, but the dozens of reporters both in the room and chasing after her van outside or a reminder of how difficult it will be for one of the most recognizable public figures corrupt public figures. Friends in the world to hold events that truly feel intimate. On tuesday. It was reported, for example Clinton was seated at a table just seven other people for the discussion or seated with her with an audience of another fifteen people, but those islands were far outnumbered by the dozens of reporters who were bunched together behind a thin yellow rope at the back of the room envied, despite some limits on the number of press, Chris credentials handed out by the Clintons Iowa teen each aisle. Folks, the reporters were handpicked each outlet had one person in the room and national television and photography was pooled. It was a big group of reporters that was the majority of those that showed up out of the twenty two people reported the national journal. Twenty two people seven people were legit the rest were the media. The media was there to give you the impression in your minds that she was a legitimate candidate. Bigger yet was the press crowd outside where reporters work admitted to the event. Many of them chased Clinton's van when I pulled up contributing to the feeling of a media circus surrounding the former secretaries I will launch Clinton joked about the horn of reporters at the event open telling this seven roundtable participants. Well, thank you for having me here and a few of my friends. You've been led to believe that it was Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump the best way to control the opposition is to lead it ourselves. How did the media make her legitimate candidate by using the press to make her bigger than life always taking close close shots and making it look a lot bigger than it really was folks to the point where she had twenty two people show up a majority of them or the media outlets, the CIA controlled media outlets that have not a history of telling you the truth in any scenario? And the only time that they are caught telling you the truth is when they blurt blurt the truth out in their confusion. You can't make this up. What does this do Americans already hated the Clintons and they still do today? Have you ever noticed that friends, even I don't watch TV? I don't watch that filthy garbage. Second corinthians. Six seventeen tells me to come out from among them some one on one verse three tells me to come out from their put no wicked thing before mine is James four four says not to be friends with the world. This is the world in these people of the world, they're heathens. They're wicked men, and they know right? But they do the wrong. What do they do? They put her up like she's legitimate. They put her in Donald Trump who for years has been groomed in the media as a favorite as a good guy doing stuff for the little guys continuously saying the right thing at the right time very little negative press about him whatsoever. So they put up Donald Trump, and then they put up Hillary Clinton. What? Which one do you think they're going to pick France? And interestingly enough when you go back even going friends to one of how many millions and millions just in the United States of America, the home alone movie where did that take place friends at the Trump plaza hotel? How many and he has been folks intertwined through television through the news outlets through interviews through his own television show, and what was his television show, the apprentice, the, hey, folks, you're fired you're fired everything he has failed to do since. He's been in the people's White House. He doesn't drain the swamp. He's been filling the swamp prints. He's been stacking it up. He's been stacking. The odds up against you everything he says the opposite is what he's doing. When is it that you're going to begin to listen to it? You're gonna listen when the boot falls, and then it's too late. Right. How many people out there right now knowing there there's something seriously wrong? How many knowing there I keep hearing the same things from this guy? But I see the opposite done Hakim. He hasn't done it yet. Because he's a part of the problem. He's a part of those that have been put up just like that of Hillary Clinton. Let me ask you again. Just like I said during the first segment how come she hasn't been prosecuted? Now, she's going out there and attacking Donald Trump. Now, she's going to the Chinese saying we want Trump's tax returns. And yet he fails to prosecute by saying the Clintons are good people. And I don't wanna hurt them Chaumont America. Really how long are you gonna play to the dukes of ill designing men because you look stupid in the eyes of the rest of the world. You really do. You know, what you keep hearing from the Trump, followers and Trump followers. They are. They're not they're not for the law. They're not they're not for God's moral law. They could care less about the constitution so much. They didn't even take time to read the constitution. And how can you understand the constitution without understanding a biblical view of what the constitution is about on the seedbed late out in the declaration of independence? What's falls back upon the Mayflower? Compact. How does that make any sense if I don't know the proceedings? In the preceding documentation. Well. Oh, well, he he tells us the right thing. He tells us what we want to hear. And as long as he keeps telling us what we want to hear guess what? We're totally good. Well, guess what? That's exactly how these Trump followers act right at the beginning of my show on one outlet out of one hundred and nine in the United States of America. We just got picked up by another one. Yes. Two days ago. Sorry. I can literally watch when I say, Donald Trump, and critique Donald Trump all of a sudden, I'll see the numbers drop right away. You I don't know why. Because they don't wanna hear the truth because if they hear the truth, and they have to demand. Turt- demands. A response they have to respond to that truth. They don't want to respond to the truth. They want to hold fast to the deceit that very deceit. That's destroying them their country and their posterity. They love the lie more than they love the truth, and they act accordingly. It's just the truth friends. I see it all the time. And if you think for one moment just because you like Donald Trump warn you like the truth that all of a sudden, I'm gonna tuck tail. In bow to your every wishes because of the support that I get from my sponsors. I want to tell you end my sponsors. You got another thing coming. The truth is what makes men free not the lie. So we took the time in showed you that Hillary Clinton had twenty two people at the very beginning of her presidential campaign show up in Iowa, a majority of them or the media outlets to continuously promulgate the lie that you might believe.

"Show. I'm joined by Josh Crawshaw hotline. Josh on Twitter. He's the national editor of politics over at national journal. Josh, I I don't think it's possible to overstate the importance of this to Donald Trump give it a world. How important is this? Donald So one word that comes to mind is the word relief. I mean, this is a huge relief for for President Trump. He's he's essentially been cleared certainly politically speaking and these storm clouds that have been hanging over his presidency over all the all these accusations of collusion that's done that that were true didn't amount to anything, according to Robert Muller's. So it's got to be released for the White House or people who have been lawyering up over the last couple of years on staff. I mean, this is a storm cloud that that's starting to pass pass beyond that. Let's pause for a moment. No collusion extends to Don. jR to Eric to Jared Kushner to vodka to Steve Bannon Kellyanne Conway to everybody. No American was involved. I think maybe in the rush to analyze people are losing sight of how complete that exoneration is right. And that was the tail on Friday when we learned that there were no indictment of sealed indictment for anyone in that Trump orbit in his family. And that was the first sign that Trump had something to look forward to when when bar summary of the report came out. Total relief for the country. I mean, there are a lot of people, you know, worried that there might have been some some Trump campaign officials that we're doing business with the Russians and had at at doing. There was a mentoring candidate is theories out there, and that's been put the rest by Robert Mueller. I think that should be a relief for the country. But the politics of this are starting to get just starting to begin. Because the Democrats are at a really really tricky situation where they know the public is sorta looking now beyond Russia..

"Polls had come in. And the thing is all of us had expected. It was governor Clinton was challenging president, George H W Bush. I think all of us expected that Clinton would win. But but but that it would be you know, it was a competitive race. But that it sure seemed like Clinton had an advantage and the early exit polls started coming in that showed Clinton with this massive lead over President Trump. I mean, excuse me over President Bush and that. You know that just didn't reflect at all the race that we had been watching so closely. So we were busy scrambling around trying to concoct in our mind. A rationale an explanation for why this election seemed to be taking this completely unexpected turn and over the course of the afternoon as more data came in more exit. Polls came in. You know, it started closing down to the point where it ended up being about where we expected it to be to begin with. But we're the first rounds of exit polls, they they were incredibly misleading. And then you remember the experienced with with John Kerry and president George H W Bush in in two thousand four where people based on the ninety two experience. I had actually made arrangements to have lunch with a friend that worked in Connecticut. To stay away. Because I didn't wanna get consumed by these exit polls that I didn't have an enormous amount of respect for in this one context and. And everybody got all torqued up that Kerry was gonna be beating President Bush by a decent margin. And all that, and it turned out they were just flat rock, so I think they've been abused a good bit. But there is some research that shows that some subsequent research using other methods that that have shown that maybe they're not capturing the very best most accurate picture of what happened on election day. But it it's I think it's for the purposes of saying, what did various demographic groups, do, you know, it's okay. It's not bad. It's not the be all and into all which is why we have this other research out there. So, but I think that they've been over used or misused abused, whatever in a way that they shouldn't have been and that so I think they should be taken with a little bit of a grain of salt having said that I have the cross tabs both horizontal and vertical tabs though. So I could use for speech. Materials as for caught up with some sleep. But but you have to be a little careful anybody else before you get the hook.

"I really think that's a change. I haven't seen it translated yet. But I think it means moving further up the North Carolina coast towards. Just the beaches like duck, I'll fill you in throughout the hour. It's a nasty storm get your car and drive away. Nobody knows where it's really going to go wobbly southwest last night northwest this morning, it they don't know just go join up by Josh cross our politics that are at the national journal follow him on Twitter at hotline. Josh, Josh, you're make any preparations. I don't think DC gets hit. But the Potomac looks awfully doggone high right now. We've had record amounts of rain in the Washington area. And fortunately, it looks like the track is moving a little bit further away from from the Washington area. Which is good news, given give them a plug in and rain here. But boy like you said if you're live on the coast just get out of there just get out of there. And I tell you the Potomac I live about one hundred yards from the Potomac but about fifteen feet. I don't think it can get to it could possible. But it's it's up over its Katie center Bank. I drove downtown last night and that that area right next to the Kennedy Center. That's when it's even with that. I haven't seen that before. Yeah. I work right right there right up the Potomac river. And there was the main road that goes wreck Parkway which goes right next to the Potomac was closed because of all the rain. So it's been a tough tough summer, and we hope that Florence. Well, let's now go to your article on the United States Senate. Let's get the summary for everyone to know. And I hope you play by the way. Josh I'm doing a midterm madness contest because everybody thinks that can predict political races. So I've collected the ten closest Senate races ten closest house races five governor races. And we're we're going to run a contest anyone who wants to try and be Michael Barone or Josh crash. Our or Steve Cornell is welcome to play whoever wins the most points out of a thousand possible points can can co host with me. We'll fly him to DC they'll co host with me for a day. A by the way, you play midterm Mattis. I will love I I would love to play. And I've already started to kind of get the data as you saw today. Start to make some predictions. Yeah. It's gonna be very difficult. So run down your column for people and they can go sign up for midterm madness at the banner at hughhewitt dot com. What is your your overall sense of the landscape? Well, I think for Republicans the ceiling is is lowering. So this notion of 'em picking up, you know, three or four Senate seats in the red state looking tougher and. Mitch McConnell out this week. You know, starting to say everything's close. There are a lot of really really tight races. And there's a little bit of nervousness because even like canopy in Texas are getting awfully competitive at the same time though. I am much more bearish. I I don't think the DEM takeover is any more likely than it was a month or two ago because Republicans actually making interested in some of these these states, like North Dakota, Missouri and in Arizona. So I'm actually seeing Democrats make make some ground in a few big day for Republicans are also getting Graham, if the mother big state, so I don't see this wave sweeping over the Senate. I think Republicans aren't going to get those four seats that maybe they want the vision. But I think they could pick up a seat mid even two seats. And I certainly don't see them losing control of the Senate. Now, Josh I want you to quarrel with me don't hold back. I know my first three picks in midterm madness. I'm giving the Republicans wins in North Dakota over Heitkamp in Florida over Nelson, and in Missouri over mccaskill, I think that that Kevin Kramer, and Rick Scott and Josh Holly are superb candidates in the right place at the right time where the president helps him. So I think that's three pickups, and we get the four or five by just winning one more one upset somewhere like John James or Jim Rene c or Mike Braun in Indiana's not really an upset and then holding. So that's where I get my four to five. So here's here's I agree with you, North Dakota and Missouri North Dakota, by the way, Republicans and Democrats. She Kevin Kramer in the lead the size of elitism dispute based on who you talk to you. And which party, but there's a consensus that that that's moved into their lean Republican territory the North Dakota race. I also bullish on Holly in Missouri. When you look at the number to the NBC poll that shows the race tied when you look under the hood mccaskill.

Commentary: Can the GOP keep the House in November?
"Glad you're with us welcome into thursday the political cross currents that defined the two thousand sixteen presidential election are in overdrive once again for the upcoming midterms as josh kraushaar at national journal says that's working class white voters swinging towards president trump while upscale suburbanites defect from the gop coalition he says this november election will feature radically different types of campaigns for control of the two congressional chambers want a very winnable democratic battle for the gop leaning suburbs and the house versus the treacherous task democratic senators face wooing trump voters in conservative states to have a shot at taking the senate josh set this up two different battlegrounds for the house and the senate the lion's share of seats that republicans are defending in the house are in suburban affluent congressional districts that republicans hold where donald trump is not very popular at all and some districts he's downright toxic but in the map for the senate it's a whole lot different not only are the states that are the big battlegrounds in very republican areas you know montana west virginia missouri north dakota among them but they're also very working class very hump states these are not business friendly states as much as they are populist republican states so when you look at the polling and when you look at the way the campaigns have been run a lot of republicans actually think trump is the key to them winning even more seats in the senate even though either toxic as he is and many of these same house races so democrats are looking in pretty darn strong position in taking back the house i would say it's more likely than not at this point but the mood for republican senators has gotten a lot better lately and you're seen some increased optimism that republicans can pick up a seat or two of the senate.
