"orourke" Discussed on The Chalene Show

"Might hire a professional. You might hire a care manager to come in and help run some interference. And then start with something really, really small, sometimes they want to hire 8 hours a day. And you need a day break, and you need to go to the spa and you need these big and they like no, no, no, no, no. I met with a woman a couple of weeks ago. And we just added two hours of caregiving a week. So she could go get her nails done. And that, she said, if I can just be in the car and drive to get my now, I know that her daughter wanted more of course. I felt proud and it was a beginning because she just didn't want to leave him. Yeah. So you want to start small and it took me a year to get one woman to take a vacation. And she'd been doing 24/7 care for her husband with Alzheimer's. Once she got away, she was a totally different person, but it took us a year to get there. Do you find that sometimes there is a partner or spouse who becomes resentful or angry and doesn't want anything to do with their spouse when there is this significant change. I've had more experience where they love them so much and they don't want to let them go and then it's almost easier when they don't want to have anything because they're really clear they're not I've had clients say I'm not a caregiver. I'm not going to caregiver them. I don't like it. It scares me. I'm not good at it. For whatever reason, it's almost easier than to arrange care for the person that needs it because they are done. Yeah. And it tends to be the oldest daughter who is the caregiver or the one who steps up and is looking into insurance and what type of coverage do we have and what type of care can we afford and being the mediator between mom and dad and then there's sometimes a sibling who wants nothing to do with it. And then it impacts their relationship. Any advice there to help navigate that really, you know, the situation where I almost think caregiving or Alzheimer's can impact everyone's relationships. It does impact everybody's relationship and everybody approaches an aging parent in a different way with your own what needs you didn't get as a child and all kind of comes to bear when mom or dad needs help. So if you're the one that's got the job, you know, then anything that you are doing that can be given to someone like maybe some of the insurance work can be given to the long distance relative. It likes to Monday morning quarterback from, you know, the long distance relative has strong opinions about what the local child should be doing. Always. So maybe you want to divvy up some of the jobs. Maybe if you're the one that's in the trenches, maybe you can have one of them come down and spend a long weekend so that you can get away. My advice always to my audience was to have zero expectations. You're going to be disappointed with just about any expectation you have. If you're the caregiver and you just have to remember, this might advice. That you're two different people, you can handle different things, God places more on other people's plates because he knows that you can handle it. And we make a decision to do things. And some people make a decision not to do things. And it's difficult not to judge, but it doesn't make ever make us happier or bring us closer together when we do judge and allow resentment to build because it man, if you're keeping score, you will be one very unhappy sibling. It's so true. It's so true. I'm one of 6 and they were probably 6 different versions of my parents getting older. And I think what you said about not having any expectations could be really extrapolated to every situation you're ever in, a lower they are true. Friendships, children. Exactly. Exactly. And you know, if you don't have siblings that are going to be participating, maybe you hire some of it out. I had one screaming daughter and she was screaming about this sister that didn't want to do anything and there were funds to pay somebody to do what she was doing. Yeah. So he said, how would you feel if you just wrote a check to somebody and they took them to the doctor and you didn't have to take time off or maybe it doesn't always work, but maybe you should because don't you know when you're in the middle of it and you're just buckling down and then someone reaches out to help and you're like, no, no, I got this. Yeah. And you really could let someone help you. So there might be another creative way to get the help you need. I know for myself that more tired I am, the more I take on, it makes no sense. I think we have to be honest with ourselves and realize you're not going to get credit for this. There will not be an award ceremony. You're not going to get an adequate thank you. You're not going to get your time back your life back, your health back, your body back. None of those things. So you better be doing it for all the right reasons or it's going to be a really long, hard journey. Yeah. What I'll tell you, you will get is, you know, I still walk into the grocery store, and I get a warm memory of being there with my father in the electric wheelchair, spending 45 minutes in the grocery store, wandering around, talking to people. You know, I have some of those memories that are that are mine. And I, I know that I have them, my heart feels full because of it. We documented so much of our journey. I filmed a lot of it. I have hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of hours of us with my father in law, and my husband has said, you know, my dad never said, I love you until he had Alzheimer's. He never he was never sweet and soft and funny in the way that he was and he said, how as hard as it was, how many people get to spend a year every single day with their parent while they're still physically able to do things like mentally he might not have been there, but physically he was still we were still going on bike rides with him. He had this insane physical coordination that most people with Alzheimer's do not have. That made it really fun to do a lot of things that we otherwise wouldn't have had the opportunity to do. But I do know for so many it is this, I guess it's a societal belief that if you put your family member in a nursing home, that means that you don't care about them and you're asking someone else to take care of them, it's such a selfish thing to do. How do you address that comment? I don't have any judgment and I probably had just enough experience where I've seen people move into communities and they're happier, especially with memory care, sometimes, you know, don't ever put me in a nursing home or don't ever put me in the facility and I've seen them move into a community and they're actually more stable, they're less anxious, they're more involved. And they actually are better off. And I've had some people say to me over the years that they feel safer. This is the older person. They feel safer with caregivers around who know what they're doing. Now, I know you can bad moth nursing homes and you can say you can't get good care, et cetera, et cetera. But you can. You can. Absolutely. And I've watched caregivers give a bath and it's amazing when you watch them do all the techniques they have. The older person can relax because they know the person knows what they're doing. And they're not panicked that maybe the daughter that's trying to give her mom a bath doesn't know what she's doing and the mom's terrorized and sometimes the financial reality, if you have children or you have your own life, you can't bankrupt your life and your children's life to take care of your parents. So you have tough decisions to make that if I had children, I would be making it my children first, and.

Are tom so. I guess i understand that. Yeah unfortunately not gonna make it till tomorrow. Just the business to take care of here. You know i got Got a little bit held up. And i'm I'm kinda sad to miss the car today. it's always one of my one of my favorite days of the year kind of the day before the belmont the day before the you know craziness kicked in. Let's see what it's was going to be like tomorrow but i'll be and then We got our band. Paul aller in the great Contributor a great addition to our team helped us out a couple of summers ago. Togan has continued on. So he's on the ground so we're This is horse racing will be represented in person and obviously spirit exactly well. We'll see you tomorrow in the meantime. Let's talk. I did see that you. I did see that. You've got Analysis up For today For those that want to build their bankroll at the link. This is horse. Racing dot com and Fact you've got a survey of all the staff members Which is nice actually. Do that You know you can. You can follow your favorite Yeah we we really did a A team approach This year we. We rolled it out for kentucky oaks day and w derby day we had a we have eighty cappers which is a pretty strong group. We have our our usual team from the serta. special John trump as ian leading the way there and crushing a bunch of winners during saratoga. Pretty good during the triple crown. And then joe sean. And i We normally do. our people. Tapes picks as well throughout the season. And we also have Jessica paquet who's doing race calling this weekend down in Sam houston. we've kind of added her to the team for the summer saratoga Irregular spot and then. Paul halloran his. Well mentioned earlier. He's off to do picks so it's pretty close battle through the for the leading handicapper in the in on this. Endorse racing this year and Yeah certainly good opportunities today. Five stakes and then. I was big into tomorrow's card myself. Right here This morning yeah. Good good opportunity to pad that bankroll today including the new york The new york stakes man. It's like a loaded. I keep thinking about the rate and how loaded it. Well it and i. I want to focus on saturday. Because of course the replay tomorrow morning. Five to eight on sear here on siriusxm but dad. What would you come up with. Eventually ultimately in the new york in the new york picked against Against there is such a strong statement. But Mean mary i did. I did pick against her. I loved her comeback In the gallery at pimlico Three weeks ago. I ended up picking civil union in here You know a little bit of a price Her last was not very good at all. but You know she's runwell bow mine. I think the longer trip Suits are a little bit better. Maybe i was shopping for a price. i do think harvey's little goals is to be Her her comeback was very strong. And you know she's been super competitive in in all of her races But i i was looking for maybe civil union bounce back to you. Know her form that that one or the flower bowl You know maybe that's just picturing a rerun of that Hoping that the the things that for her and then. I have been mary in the third by the year. Let me say between you. Just trying to think of who was you and nick nick. Surprise me a little bit nick Tammaro he'd liked Civil union and i know mike beer Picture as well. So there's some interest inner and you know. Part of the appeal of her in the spot is is absolutely the price But honestly if i given given the depth of this field and the way the money is going to spread around I i really thought magic attitude and Particularly magic attitude and thundering nights comes down from the six to one number but i by magic attitude. I think you'll get every bit of that six to one. And she's kind of dirt Kind of dirtied up not dirtied up from a formed But from a connection standpoint with delacour and trevor mccarthy. I mean that isn't in. It's not a it's not a pairing that You know is an auto bet for people. I mean there's a ton of that because it goes on and she's a affiliate has a ton of class Rent running group one in europe. You know three year old last year and just Last year Man and if you get six one like you said that could be you know that. That isn't a common Pairing you get hammered in new york a lot but obviously always very capable and wins races. Like the A lot and trevor seven having a good year Yeah it magic attitude. Six to one. That's a great play in my opinion especially in this right from you. Gotta you gotta catch a price. i think can't can't for something short. Let's turn to saturday then. And i'll send the link. Actually i do that right now. I'll send the link out for everybody so they can look at the friday selections from this horse racing dot com and The team Certainly if a wider audience isn't familiar with john japan they should be and certainly saratoga. We'll make sure that john. John is literally The annual leader when it comes to are y in win percentage in terms of analysis and tabs at the spa but he does a good job year round so Be aware of of your favourite armenian handicapper. Is you know. I i do pick every year have been Twenty thirteen and in the special and prior to that. I did them for the pink. She way back to my days. That starting out and kind of continue on. And i mean you know i feel like maybe a couple of days into the me i might be ahead of him and It's kind of. That's like my badge of honor. It never lasts I'm not sure how far i've ever gotten where i like in front of him. And then i feel like he'll. He'll have six winters on a saturday. And i'll have five and thought i had a good day and then the next day he'll come back with four or five more and be down for five and then be chasing the whole meet in my mind. You probably you know thinking. I have no chance but in my heart. I'm chuck try and do you know but I mean he gets lights out. I mean just. I can't remember the last time he didn't finish on top of all the public handicappers in the in the area. I know i know he hasn't won it every single year since he's been doing it in a special but does it almost every year in the special for sure gail gerald who the handicapper for years ago actually. Ibm one year in our paper which was a shock and but but john is He'll be his usual top spot. I'm sure once we get rolling here in july in saratoga. Yeah he loved them. Yeah we're gonna love central quality yeah inbound. That's that's his pick But you know what that's where you lean on the favorite not at all. Let's talk about belmont Tom and Give us give us a rundown what you what your your key. Plays are over the course of saturday. Yeah i mean the belmont itself is You know really interesting right. I think you know with with Rocky world i guess going to be the one Handling the pace..

It's probably the beltline real quick I've been you know looking around up and down everywhere. And you know what i'm gonna i'm gonna hope to. The the the winter runs with his doubtfire again romburg. I reached his peak in. And and who's to say that he needs to regress it. All he's He's not at a deep deep deep closer. He doesn't have to be. And you know. I always afraid of those kind The belmont of course you going. Mommy but You know start last. People are gonna end up first. Doesn't happen that way He can lay close enough And you know why. Can't he repeat What he didn't about in the pregnant. So i like i'm right now i like i. Like ron bauer I like went that why not. Why not disagree at number wise I like him over over the two in the six It's central quality and known agenda a little bit Jimmy said any likes rock your world. I'm a little concerned with the war. Starts I know that not that big a deal anymore. I'm just Just concerned with that did not had a reason in the in the In the derby running for writing bad but you know what that goes with experience. I don't know if he has enough experience so I'm not not on rock your world. That much hot ride. Charlie and i think is going to run his race again. I think you'll be tough in central quality. But i think there's enough for romburg to go after and you know what i think he's fine Johnny takes over the reins. And you know a dinky might be dismissed a little bit of a windows. Even what is the in the program. Three two one You know he might maybe seven to on or something we'll we'll see but Yeah no. I got no problem saying why not the. Let's go back in The let's do the repeat button. I don't think science makes sense. I think there's plenty to like. I i'm going to end up picking him second but I i'm leaning on a with equal weight In in all the multi-race wages yeah going backwards. I do like the couples obvious ones. I mean you take all these races summer summer soccer than not even the some of the races today and you know don't have to pick them all We gotta sometimes no way to stop it. you know i wanted. I like by by melvin last time it didn't it In the dinner party. Yeah but i. I don't know if he's good enough. I'm i'm leaning domestic spending and goof. Oh there are a couple of the obvious one that seemed to just give it every time You know not hoping that they run a good one it they will and maybe he'll naked sensibly obvious ones. That's a lean on their Hopefully not going to have to go to even some of these races. The man i went back work crazy food for this race Nikko looks looks. You know kinda tough coming off that last win. I'm looking for a little bit of a reason. Not to play 'em Silver state after after spending the winter at that opened on is an obvious You know kind of favorite worst. He really knows with a wire is one. What five in a row. As soon as they cross the wire receiver the paddock thinking net mile. I mean this is where he was going So that's always a good thing And then i got the doctor post. I think dr posted a little bit I like the prep. Last night's Prep he's got a nice Running at mystic guide. Somebody's horses have have one. But you look back behind him. And you say whoa. They didn't eat a whole lot Not the doctor posted but He seems to be coming into a just right and And toucher knows what to do here. So i i kinda snuck on. It's not on him with she. Kind of came out of nowhere but after after over studying He he jumped off the page at me. So dr post there the race before still. I'm still mad at the tough one. The the just a game and it does every year. So i'm gonna take writes in here. I kinda liked i like Some air of the one of the chad brown You know looking at. I'm looking at always shopping. I'm learning now like everyone else Todd cannot todd can train a turf force you just mentally go through to go out and odds Forget that over the past few years and over the past few months and we each jonas that he's fine so You know maybe stairway not anymore. So keep your eye on that. I still have. I still have not Have not figured that race. Out to tell you the truth the ogden steps I heard this woke up this morning to hear that split skydivers. Yes he at well. That's how it just shows how tough it is to get these all these sources of together You know one. I i once again was gonna hit the repeat button anyway. with withdrew scout meaning. I mean Had it not a tough hard race. I think this is one of these type horses thrives on that that thrives on the on the on the action in once it look at. She's went thirteen out of eighteenth. Start you've got to want to run for that for that stuff A lot of the silly thing here of one You know fifty percent their runs. And that's why they're in these races but You know who's who's gonna ride her. Do we hear not yet. Okay so i mean obviously we want to go back and hit the hit the the button watch Watch the last race. I mean i read Who a big part of of of getting rid of the finish line first and But she thrives on it likes to be there. She likes to run. The part of the action So i i i have no problem I'm looking at her right back. And she dares the devil. I'm not gonna mention the bs word Bonnie south sioux lousy that that that train left the station exactly we could get it. It was funny. I heard you mentioned..

"To the replay. He play as it feeds into the next day's live show. You heard minutes ago. I I guess after the break so four minutes ago the late breaking news yesterday morning that empire maker had died over the weekend and it's really triggered very appropriate and predictably A lot of memories and appreciations and will join in that chorus and later that actually the next couple of days I imagine because certainly tomorrow when sid visits visits for Sire Watch pedigree focus brought to you by Hillsdale Sydell certainly ref on one empire makers impact a lasting. What will be a lasting impact really Worldwide and. His story is is unusual usual. I it it took a twist the the detour as a stallion to Japan and then the repatriation gains way and Don Alberto auto going getting them and bring them back and the twists and turns on that front. It'll be interesting to listen to Said you know talk about how the you know the appeal in the ebb and flow and and his his sons and you know what he what he was able to accomplish as he was leaving really And Pioneer the Nile. Obviously and and more. He's got what three four sons That are at at Stud still here and then with Taya near the Nile. Getting American Farrow. And there's there's a lot of moving parts the to what went on with with empire maker but his coming back to North America and delivering four crops. You're twenty sixteen seventeen. Eighteen nineteen four crops will be a bonus undoubtedly and we'll we'll be. We'll be unwrapping those presents. For the next several years we're GONNA talk to Garrett Rourke after the first break from judgment and an empire makers racing career certainly as brief as it was really I mean for all the carrying on about. Oh we whisk these this era are we whisk these horses off to start at three well empire maker went went to Stud seemingly early and young but then made his mark obviously as a resource. And what's what's what's fascinating if you if you haven't had a chance to read Chris McGrath's GDN peace. And I'm sure I'm sure said tomorrow will reference it because it I thought I when when SID tweeted it out and it was being discussed yesterday. McGrath really really touches on so many elements of vampire maker. And and the Judd Mont portion of the equation from his. It is really from his origin and I remarked to Garrett this morning it was just just last week right I for those of you that follow on twitter and so forth and facebook I had I had Sent out the link to the audio of Bobby Frankel from eleven years ago from Franco's reactions to the news to Saad had had been euthanized. And the fact that it's about the same time of year and a lot of people heard that I think heard heard that segment with bobby for the first time and in fact. I think it was my friend Dan. The right Dan Heart I think was a Dan. Or maybe some a somebody else that said they had never heard Franken's voice and they'd never heard the they've fairly new fans of the game and Bobby talked about the family and McGrath rights. I mean just glowingly really beautifully fleet if you can't recommend that That sort of an opinion piece or re I. It's a it's a combination it's a it's an obe it it's it's it's everything it's a pedigree analysis really quite brilliant and add to it. It's beautifully done That juxtaposes this is the creation of of empire maker here and Frankel abroad. And how Prince College named named the two horses with such anticipation of their you know potential greatness really and as has been remarked very often when you do that when you try to do that I it. It's kind of a fool's errand a lot of times in naming naming horsing viciously But in the case as of empire maker for their American racing operation and Frankel with Sir Henry's Sol and his campaigning Frankel and empire maker really fulfilled the expectations and the the lofty Editions of their names. And it's amazing really to me I I. If we had access to all of our archives some are missing and some come through. There was some computers that were stolen. Some older laptops were stolen Several years ago and quite a few archives were on on those And then we've got our collection of CDs. CD's that really need to be catalogued but if we went through and plucked everything that that we had add about empire maker in particular I it would be would be kind of fun. I think because we talked to Bobby Abby about him plenty of times and The family in general the family's been a a favorite of mine honest lady was the one that really kind of hooked me Even more so than than empire maker. We've told The lady stories but we've had a lot of good stories. The the Bobby Frankel remembered show in the afternoon. Bobby it passed in the morning and we were afforded seven show at that time and Lula's narrow Called me at seven o'clock and said Bobby's gone and we had the the show hours later and one. What are the really good stories that there are so many touching moments but Gary Siaca it tells the great story about being at the training track at Belmont when empire maker was the two year old and was going to get his gate card and was being gate schooled and and he's behind the gate and he's going crazy. He's up on his hind legs and he's he's making everybody nuts and gary was their schooling a horse and so he called Frankel and and Bobby this big big black horse. It's going crazy here because bobby says yeah. That's my triple crown horse. That's my Derby Irby winter. Damn if if he didn't come came close And certainly if you know not to take away from funny decide by any means but it I if empire maker one hundred percent you you just you know you'd love to You'd love to line them up a couple more times because you just don't know and by the time five weeks had good pass than Franken had the chance to go back to New York in regroup and wait for funny sides arrival at Belmont what it was going to be tough. It was going to be very hard for for funny side to beat him that day. And of course ten most wanted figures into that discussion to but empire maker for certain I think for certain age of player and Fan Ah is one of those horses that engaged people and and there'd be people became interested or latched on and there was so much about that period. That was that triple crown season. That was high drama and Frankl Frenkel put on in that black hat. Boy He he he he was little. Bill is an unforgiving he For those of you that don't that were there for it And and you know during the period. Ah Bobby Bobby was rough on on Barclay tag and that was A. That was a fascinating waiting. Five weeks not the least of which involve the you know the just reprehensible antics of the Miami Herald and the idiotic.

"Now the trump impeachment impeachment news in three minutes or less over the weekend. The big news was at the whistle blowers lawyer said the whistle blower themself would answer written questions from Republican members of Congress and go in further. The lawyer said these questions could be submitted directly without having to go through the congressional process and even more the responses would be quote in writing and another oath and penalty of perjury and quote. So that was the offer well. Republicans were not having it representative. Jim Jordan of Ohio wrote in part quote. Last week's testimony raised even more concerns about the anonymous whistleblower and our need to hear from them in person and quote today despite Congress being technically in recess private depositions in the impeachment inquiry continued. Well they tried to continue anyway. Two key witnesses scheduled for today Robert Blair and John John Eisenberg failed to show up for their testimony in the morning despite subpoenas although I am saying this before it actually happens. The other two key witnesses for the day are also expected not out to show up in a CNN. Story on Saturday Monterey Zhou Jeremy Herb wrote about how Democrats might handle this blanket. Refusal of key witnesses to actually show up and testify testify. The choice boils down to engaging in a long legal fight to try to get those witnesses or just take what they've already gotten. Lay it out in an interesting twist the latter option might just be the plan reading from CNN quote a number of House Democrats told CNN that it's time for that next step saying they've already ready built enough evidence to advance the proceedings to the public stage. This isn't an Agatha Christie novel. This is a shakedown said. Representative Jamie Raskin. A Democrat from Maryland. Who has taken part in the closed-door depositions? I think we have established an overwhelming case. But we have got very careful prosecutors on the staff who rightfully want want to leave no witnesses unexamined and they want every detail to be nailed down as much as possible. That's good raskin added but at a certain point we have to say. There's just been an overwhelming case. That high crimes and misdemeanors have likely been committed against our country and quote in that Context House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi she has indicated that public hearings could begin this month and transcripts of closed door. Testimony have just started to be released as I read this to transcripts descript from mid October have just been released so presumably. I'll have more on that for you tomorrow Last week I reported that Julia on Castro just barely made his fundraising goal by Halloween. And that last minute push actually made up the great majority of his overall October fundraising in a CNN story. On Saturday Dan merica notes that the Castro campaign is preparing to lay off some staff reading from CNN quote. It was clear inside the San Antonio based campaign even before the push began but the future was uncertain for the Texas Democrat. The Castro campaign senior leadership told staffers before they announced their fundraising. Push that whether or not they hit the number staff should feel free to look for other other opportunities and even when the campaign hit the fundraising goal Castro senior. Aides again told staff at the campaign would likely have to make staffing adjustments moments to press on that has led some Castro aides to look for jobs with other campaigns. A source said Castro has no plans to drop out at this point but that the campaign's senior leadership wanted to be as clear as possible with staff about the campaigns forthcoming strategic decisions and not spring the news on them and quote so add Castro to the last along with Harris of candidates who are restructuring their campaigns to focus on just a few early voting states rates.

Welcome to the rescue. They make amends underwear and shirts. Out of fabric that is naturally anti title Microbe Translation eliminates odors. Of course. I wanted to test this out so I bought a bunch of this antimicrobial underwear and shirts. Plus a pair of sweatpants dance. I put the Combo on and went out in the art into saw up tree limbs and do my normal routine at the end. Yeah I'll admit I did a sniff test and guess what this stuff really works works especially the underwear. It does not smell. I've been so happy with my macworld outfits that I went back and bought more. I like the t shirts especially the fabric feels is great and in fact every item of clothing I am wearing right now is made by Amac Walden that means one set of clothing works great for both podcasting and heavy lifting it. Just don't get that every day from other brands with Mac Weldon that's quality. You can count on. I want you to try this out for yourself. Try The silver for underwear. If you're not happy with your first pair of underwear you can keep it and they'll send you a refund. No questions asked for twenty percent off your first order visit Mac Weldon Dot Com and enter. Enter the Promo Code election once more. That's MAC WELDON DOT COM Promo Code election for twenty percent off your first order. Thanks to Mac Weldon and for sponsoring. Today's election ride home this morning. The New York Times published a series of polls conducted by Sienna again a college. They looked at battleground state predictions for president trump versus the three top polling Democrats in the primary and the way most people read this poll well West to look at one graphic right at the top and flip out. So let's talk about that graphic and how we might better understand it. The graphic shows a grid of state-by-state eight by state matchups in each sale is a matchup between a Democrat and trump among registered voters in Michigan Pennsylvania. Wisconsin Florida Florida Arizona and North Carolina and looking at that Biden column. Gosh there's a lot of Biden winning. He wins four states by anywhere anywhere from two percent to five percent against trump. They're tied in one state and he loses one to trump by two percent. Now compare this to sanders. Who who wins three states and loses three states all by margins of one to three percent and compare this to Warren who wins one St ties to Oh and loses three the spread there is between two and six percent alright so on first viewing you might be inclined to look at this graphic and say oh crap rap the only Democrat in this list who can win these states is Biden and in fact? That's how the Times put it in. Their headline they say Biden is ahead of trump but warren in is behind trump and that is a legitimate way to look at this poll fight. Let's go a little bit deeper. As always with polls we have to talk about methodology legiti particularly the margin of error the margin of error for five of the six states. I just mentioned is plus or minus four point four percent and for Michigan again. It's plus or minus five point one percent so in other words every result in that graphic whether it is a win or a loss is within the margin of error. You're with just two exceptions. Those are Biden at plus five in Arizona. which is less than one percent outside the margin and Warren minus six in Michigan again? which again is less than one percent outside the margin now? I'm not saying that. Every one of these results is incorrect. That would be a huge reach but but I am saying the margin of error is a real thing. The simplest way to read this poll from my perspective is to say wow in these battleground states it really. Is this close now. Which of these three Democrats or the other Democrats is the best option? Well that's a harder case to make based on this data. That's what the primary Mary needs to be about. And there are a lot of factors that could change between now and the actual vote in two thousand twenty quoting NPR. Political Editor Domenico Montinaro. Oh on twitter quote poll show right now that the two thousand twenty election next year. We'll probably be close in the states that matter and who turns out is going to be key cool will end quote now beyond the margin of error the psychological effect of big numbers versus small numbers is real however in winning elections. Sion's it doesn't matter whether you win big or just win. That's how trump won in two thousand. Sixteen he narrowly won a bunch of states and those winds Add up he could do that again. Or a Democrat could have a similar result. Nate silver of fivethirtyeight alluded to that in a two-part tweet this morning quote the difference between Biden's performance versus trump and warren slash. Bernese is about the same in those upshot state polls as in most other polls holes this year it looks a lot bigger because in most other polls all the leading Democrats have big leads. And they don't in the upshot polls when Biden leads by nine or ten and Warren Slash Bernie lead by six or seven. Nobody notices much but when Biden leads by one or two and Warren Oren Slash Bernie trail by one or two. It looks huge. It's actually the same two to three point gap though and quote all of of this is to say. Take your polling with grains of salt listened to people who are professional pollsters when they tell you things about how to understand their own polls especially if some results results are actually within the margin of error and cone the author of the time story about these polls actually did that in two ways first. He took to twitter Lincolnshire show notes to discuss the various reasons why these results differ by design from other major polls. Now that may mean they're more accurate that they represent a better prediction than other pollsters right now. Part of this is by making sure these polls did a solid job of polling white non college educated voters but Kona saying up front hey. This poll design is notably different and arguably better. The question there becomes basically. Is he right eight. Is that poll design better or not and I'm not sure how we test that without holding an election just because it's a different design doesn't make it correct rector incorrect but it does say. Hey this one is not like the others and it's like that on purpose at the same time cone actually says in the time story story at the very first graphic shows results that are within this poll's margin of error now. It's kind of easy to miss that. Because it's one sentence in this long litany of images images that seem to paint a different picture but again the margin is a key grain of salt that we must consider when reading poll reading once more from the times quote across the six closest states that went Republican in two thousand sixteen trump trails Joe Biden by an average of two points among registered voters but stays within within the margin of error and quote.

"Up on Friday Beto Aurora dropped his bid for the presidency after declaring his campaign way back on March fourteenth. He spent two hundred thirty two days in the race. Now according to my math that is the longest run of any candidate who has dropped out at this point as with all candidates who dropped dropout. Let's take a look back at his candidacy. A rare came into the race. Fresh off of an unsuccessful bid for Senate in Texas. He tried to defeat Senator Ted Cruz and didn't didn't quite make it but during that Senate run. He gained national attention for almost defeating an incumbent. Republican in a red state that national profile L. helped or work with fundraising at least early on reading from an article. In The New York Times by Alexander burnes quote in the earliest days of his campaign. Mister O'Rourke was a fundraising powerhouse. Collecting more than six million dollars. In his first day as a candidate but his fundraising cratered Richard. Almost immediately he raised more in his first forty eight hours than in the following one hundred days and steadily depleted his campaign treasury by I spending more than he was taking in and quote by the middle of last week or works campaign was in Dire Straits financially facing the possibility of laying off staff in order to remain afloat reading from post on medium by Aurora titled. Simply thank you quote. Though it is difficult to accept it is clear to me. Now that this campaign gene does not have the means to move forward successfully. My service to the country will not be as a candidate or as the nominee acknowledging. This now is in the best interests of those in the campaign. It is in the best interests of this party as we seek to unify around a nominee and it is in the best interests of the country and he goes on to discuss his campaign and his achievements during it and to thank his supporters. He also says he will work to support the eventual Democratic nominee. So let's let's listen back to one key moment from the aurore campaign. The most notable moment for Aurora came in the wake of tragedy when a shooter drove to El Paso Aso in order to shoot people at a local Walmart a works hometown was visited by domestic terrorism. This led to a major change in how he talked about gun safety fifty and to some extent about race and immigration. Let's listen to a clip from Sunday. August fourth in which Iraq spoke to folks about how he would react to the shootings. This this happened at sunset at a vigil El Paso. Listen I am so proud. At this moment humanity that will not be defined defined by the murders that we saw yesterday but instead in the way choose to overcome them to ourselves by our laws our courage our our confidence in our face of this weakness and fear and intolerance and the example that we will provide the rest of the country at our differences are not dangerous a you not define us. They will not survive us that once and for all we will choose to come together and ensure it's worth every single American can live to their potential and it will look was here in castle for the example. Are you ready to provide Those families in our prayers birth. Let's continue to share the story of El Paso and what is financial community with the rest of the world and then if listened to Unwell Well Patricia remind us that in addition to the racism and the hatred and the fear and the intolerance we are a country that it has accepted does for four thousand gun deaths every single year. No other country comes close and we know the solutions. Universal background checks close every single day making the adoption lost anyone who poses a dangerous themselves. Someone else someone in your life where their lives is stopped before it. Just although Aurora has been encouraged by many to run for the other Senate seat in Texas. He has repeatedly declined to do that. I have seen no no indication that he will run for any office. In twenty twenty and now just seventeen. Major Democratic candidates remain.
