My father and I did and you must have given us 40 minutes. One of the things he said to me, Mike was every day This body meets, We lose a little bit of our liberty. That is stuck with me for 43 years. It's true, isn't it? Absolutely absolutely true. And it becomes more true mark every single day that passes when we as Americans are asked By the mainstream news media by the entertainment Industry and also by our academic establishment in America work as to accept this deeply flawed assumption. Passing legislation is in the abstract, a good thing, but it's an unmedicated. Good to pass things. We forget the fact that you know, passing something isn't always the right thing. And in fact, Lot of that time. It's just adding to the complexity of the law, which operates as a sort of subsidy. For the already wealthy and well connected. It's actually an impairment to liberty, and that's why the founding fathers made it very difficult to pass federal legislation and limited that further. By limiting the subject matter of what we could even legislate on. That's why I get very frustrated with people saying, Oh, the problem with Washington is that nothing can get done nothing to get past because of the spread lock. Mark.

At the First Amendment Free Speech guarantee prohibits public schools from regulating off campus speech. Jim Krystle, a CBS News Kimberly Robinson is a Supreme Court reporter for Bloomberg law. She joined us earlier to break down the ruling. This ruling is really piggybacking on a landmark ruling from the court in 1969, which said that schools generally can't prohibit speech on campus.

Saying why it was that school administrators wanted to step in here. Kimberly Robinson of Bloomberg Law and the High Court also put limits on when police officers pursuing a suspect can enter a home without a warrant.

Voting reform. Because of the way the Democrat Party Destroyed the voting system in the state of Pennsylvania. Both attacks on the state Supreme Court. It's hack governor. It's hack. Attorney general attack secretary of state and the rest of them. Now under our federal constitution. As you know, as we've talked about Endlessly. The state legislature. Not the state. Not all branches of the state. The state Legislature is specifically Granted the power To determine the means by which elections will be held to select electors. Excludes the courts. It excludes the executive branch. Now in Pennsylvania, particular, which I am familiar. As is my wife would litigate it up there. The opposite happened. You had a court on multiple occasions. Majority Democrat elected Their highest court was rewriting the state election loss. You had the executive branch, rewriting the state election laws through Guidance and directives to the counties. They have no constitutional authority to do any of that. So the state Legislature is trying to claw some of its power back and not deny people the right to vote to deny people who aren't supposed to vote the right to vote.

I have used predator urine in my garden in pennsylvania. I don't know if did a darn bit of good. I really don't but i'll tell you it smelled pretty darn bad. So if i were a bunny or a deer. I would not have gone near that stuff. It's interesting that We're starting with predator urine. Because i have very strong feelings about this and that is i cannot believe that this is collected in a humane way new. And you can't find any. They will not tell you how it's like. Well how it has to be as collected is they have to keep the coyotes or these fox in little pens with wire floors so that when they urinate goes down into a trough or something so it can't possibly be a humane thing so i am not in favor of using predator urine in the garden. Unless you're encouraging the coyotes and the to hang out and peeing your garden. Naturally that i'm all in favor of. I use the fox here in once i started looking into says this can't be good. This cannot be good but there are also people who will. Pd the borders of their garden in hopes of keeping deer and bunnies away. And i've read mixed things about this but well. i think i wouldn't encourage anybody to urinate too close to their vegetable garden or or things that you're going to eat that just kinda makes good sense that you don't want to bring you know harm on yourself in terms of bacteria tetra. That's why we carry waste away both either down into septic systems or sewage treatment plants.

It is exciting overweight. We didn't open up too soon. I don't think that we did with vaccines nation rates. Going up vegas excited. I don't follow this stuff that closely. I will say i've done a couple of things recently. Where it certainly felt like things were a little more back to normal which was really fun. You know being out to dinner out with a group of people and it felt like more normal although i think i saw a tweet right before we started the show where pennsylvania actually had an uptick in cases last week. So i don't know. I guess i would say if you're going to go back to normal and you're going to go back to doing things like that with other people and social gatherings. Hopefully you're vaccinated. I'm not here to make any judgments or anything. I just don't want you guys to get covid so or if you get it to get sick so if you're gonna go back normal hopefully you already got back state.

The State of Vaccinations in the U.S.

"Alison. Over the weekend rhode island became the eighth state to reach a goal set by president biden to get seventy percent of adults vaccinated with at least one shot by july. Fourth is the rest of the country on track lost so far. Many of the smaller northeastern states have reached this goal. I including maine massachusetts vermont and new jersey nationwide about sixty one percent of adults have received their first dose and very close to half are now fully vaccinated so this is all good news but in states. Vaccinations remain much lower including alabama mississippi. Arkansas utah it's kind of unclear. I mean nationwide. The number of daily. Vaccinations has declined over the last month. Part of this. Is it a lot of people already been vaccinated. Now we're at about one point. Seven million shots a day so we have a ways to go as a country. General vivek murthy has pointed to survey data showing that more people would be motivated to roll up their sleeves if their employers gave time off to get the shot and recover from it so employers not only have an opportunity to increase fascination rates. It turns out that they can also help the close. The equity gallon. Vaccinations and you know. In recent weeks mega retailers including target and walmart have announced compensation and incentives for hourly employees who get vaccinated some employees have been offered cash bonuses. Yeah in house and can we take a second to talk about what is going on in my home state of ohio right now. I saw my parents this weekend and they were telling me what they were going to do. When they won the vaccine million. Yes oh hi. Oh has gotten a ton of attention for this lottery program so for the next five weeks beginning. This week there will be a one million dollar lottery. Draw for people who get their first dose of the pfizer or moderna vaccine or the one dose of j. and j. other states have jumped on this lottery bandwagon oregon kentucky maryland in new york ruled out something called the vaccine scratch initiative with that four million dollar possible when so ohio was really touting. Some pretty impressive numbers in terms of a boost in vaccinations. And i think it's surprising. Just how well lotteries may work. I talked to a behavioral economist about this katie milkman at the university of pennsylvania and your parents might appreciate this mattie the hijack pot is really alluring and feels like a game and because we overweight small probability that we might win and wonderful coke.

Lose the Laser

"I when we just define what is the laser strike. Basically what happens is as planes are flying. Around the sky people on the ground who have laser pointers sometimes point them at aircraft and way that looks to the pilot as it creates a dazzling affect on the flight deck and it causes them to sometimes not be able to perform their duties and can even cause them to lose vision or all kinds of other bad effects. It's obviously something very concerning to the epa and we've been tracking data for this since two thousand ten really since two thousand fifteen. The number of reported laser events has held steady at right around six thousand to seven thousand events. Each year we also saw really big spike. In two thousand fifteen it went from four thousand events to around seven thousand events and this year appears to be on track for about that same ballpark number between six thousand and seven thousand. We're like why. Why did we have this. Great big increase in two thousand fifteen from four thousand seven thousand. What happened was it because more reporting was because of more events that seem to be kind of a big spike so we did a study one of the box carriers as we call them actually had really good standards where pilots to report laser events from the very beginning and we felt like we could use them as kind of our control and if we saw an increase with this particular company that we knew that overall number of was increasing. We'll be really wanted to understand more reports versus more events. What we concluded from that little study is it was about half and half actually added a little insight. Made it a little less disconcerting. I guess that some of it was simply more reporting because a pilot awareness to report these events with the increase in laser strike. Visit in specific. Sates yeah you know really since twenty ten. We've kind of seeing the same patterns of states with larger populations seem to have the greatest number of events things you would expect like california texas and florida and arizona and pennsylvania. Those were kind of the top five however if you correct for population some really interesting patterns. Come out from that. Hawaii surprise has sixty four events per person as compared to save nevada and puerto rico in arizona and oregon and utah. They're all around forty events per person so the winning state hawaii which is really surprising.

Legalization before took over. Marijuana in pennsylvania was unhurt of this idea and now a majority of our state supports it and new jersey. Just legalized it. Forty percent of population will be next door to a veritable candy land of legal wheat. And why would we in. Pennsylvania wanna capitalize on. That and i risked criminal charges performing the first same sex wedding as an elected official in pennsylvania. I championed the marginalized and police community relations. All of these things and you know the party has kind of consistently moved more towards those viewpoints as opposed to got more conservative so get more latitude to share controversial opinions and say governor. No i don't. I wouldn't say anything as the governor that i wouldn't say as governor in fact i think it's important to make these kind of statements and to take these kind of stands because you can move the needle. That's one of the things i always admired about. Republicans is that they'll take a popular standing. They'll move the needle. They'll just be like yeah here it. Is you know bones on the mass. Let's it's where i'm at. And that's what i've always chosen to do whether as with marriage equality whether it was marijuana whether with criminal justice i mean the the ads right themselves like federman wants to get killers out of jail. I mean there's no more latitude just backbone. it's like these. this is what i know to be true. And i'm going to pay us both the complement of being frank with you in saying this and i think people respect that. Yeah i think so. Let me talk about your style. Because i think it's very more modern than most politicians. I would say you obviously use social media you become a social media influencers. You look at yourself that way on twitter a lot. You're very funny. Your wife is fantastic. She's better than you are on twitter. Funny and i agree with you that she's better than a twitter. You're funny it's like. I didn't even have a social media account until i ran for my first office. Because i'm like if somebody's interested in what i'm doing. Great if they're not that's fine like i don't know who actually enjoys wearing a suit and if you think you can't do your job or you do your job better in a suit versus not than i. I disagree with you but car. Heart jacket and shorts is business casual in western pennsylvania especially this time of year. And don't have any. I mean look at me. i don't have any style it's just come on. Don't feared says style to me like you may not like the says. I need something to break the monotony of no hair. And whatever you know the point. I think it's a placeholder but yeah i mean it's it's not something that i've actively cultivated or anything it's just who i am. My image has been in a national training program on inherent bias. I mean i've had dozens of people over the years. Tell me this in fact just recently someone said. Hey i just saw so i. I don't look. I make the joke that everywhere that i'm not recognized. I've never been mistaken for the lieutenant governor of pennsylvania and and it's real i mean people can be afraid of me or they think i'm going to mow bounce search mugger or whatever i mean you know any number of these things and i mean i laugh at it because i mean there's nothing else you can do about it like there's nothing i can do to change matinee. I'll handsome. there's nothing i can do about it and what it is but it works a lot. I mean you have gone viral with no matter how you have become the fa- you don't think you're the face of pennsylvania democrats right now what i think i m is just somebody that sat in front of a laptop for a week making the arguments that needed to be heard that vote by mail in pennsylvania is one hundred percent safe. It's one hundred percent secure and it's going to be true and that all proved to be accurate but also said that we need to watch out because trump is going to be popular here. He is doing things that or unprecedented. In pennsylvania's recent political history. And you can't pull for that and it turned out that that was. That was accurate. When you're thinking about your you know becoming this political not just social media sensation political sensation. You use twitter. you're you're very self. I'm saying the combination of stuff is that you are genuine. Which is i think. A lot of people who do well people are genuine to themselves. Whatever their selves happen to be is that sort of the same formula that dumb trump uses or. How do you look at being a political sensation. These days i again. You don't think about station. I reject the whole thesis together on a political transition. I'm just the guy that set in front of you like just like this. I started spouting off truths about what just happened to be like a really really important election and tried to conveyed in a way that was accessible and relatable and needed to be heard at least. That's what i felt because what was happening was so absurd and so disingenuous on the other side that like just fueled the level of indignation and outrage with me that just because you don't like a result does it mean that it was fraud you know. If ifs and buts were candy nuts trump would have a more merry christmas. But you know none of it. There's no basis in reality at this point and what you're doing now is harming your own reputation to the extent of what's left of it in in many people's life but you're damaging the very democratic fabric of our nation take me inside the past few days in pennsylvania. What were you hearing. That we weren't with the votes are being counted in the first couple of days after the election. You tweeted pretty. Pennsylvania would go for biden and the math was saying he was the winner. Take us into where it is right now in the last few days the last few days it's just been acceptance like the saturday the day it was called. I was on cnn. Basically daring them to call it. Why wouldn't you call it like it's math. You need to under the thing. That i think the american people understood and that's not a criticism. It's it's not their state. Is how predictive mail in ballots. Were like predictive like a joke. It's predictive is driving a subaru. If there were one hundred thousand. Subaru drivers ballots out. It would have been the same level of predictive so there was no path for donald trump and early in october. I formulated that. The president's agenda was twofold. It was one to foment chaos and to provide the grounds which they're doing now to these nuisance lawsuits but then also to get in the heads of democrats to say your your mail in ballots garbage. It's not gonna count. You can't trust the mail that it ended up and that it would create this surge of democrats trying to spoil their ballot at the poll. And that would blow up two lines so i was really pushing this message like bank your ballot. Bank your ballad. Don't play into that you. That's exactly what they want you to do and thankfully that number was low. I think we ended up with one hundred thousand provisional ballots but that's a lot given the margin but as soon as i saw the number of provisional ballots. I'm like those guarantee you are gonna break hard for by because it's democrats that were spooked by the mind games that the trump campaign was playing. That you can't trust them so they went to spoil their ballot that day. And if you don't bring everything. And i mean everything. You can't use it at all and you have to use a provisional ballot so it was early on once you saw. The the overall number schemed. Like i anticipated a giant red soon nami poof and it hit and then it was like okay. Here comes the counterpunch. It's like now. We're going to start counting the mail in ballots which we could have done and hide the results to america election night. But the republican. Please let me say this very clearly. The republican legislature blocked any attempt by the governor to just even get an extra twenty four hours to begin canvassing the balanced and that all that means is your opening the envelopes. Getting them ready to count. You're not counting twenty four hours it would have made a radical difference not one. They orchestrated this. This was all designed to look chaotic. When they're in fact there was no chaos. It just played out because we couldn't start a minute before.

"You'll notice if you are watching this rather than listening that. I am doing something very unusual. I have my computer at. I don't like to have my computer out usually during the show. I feel like it separates me from you. So i usually just use my printed notes but i have to have my computer up right now because we're getting the latest numbers in From the count. So when i woke up this morning. President trump was leading in michigan by a slim margin. I'll just let's just go through the states that matter right now so for some reason they still have not called georgia for president trump early on it was clear that georgia was trump. Now it may. I guess it seems less clear. Trump still has a commanding hundred. Four thousand vote lead there with ninety two percent of the estimated votes reported. And he's up very significantly. I have no idea why they're not calling georgia yet The same thing goes for north carolina. Trump is up almost one hundred thousand votes in north carolina. Pretty commanding lead for some reason. They won't call that they're either. It was so clear on election night that the country was going for trump in a decisive way and then it all stopped arizona. Right now seems to be the opposite sort of situation. Biden does appear to have a commanding lead in arizona. Nobody's really questioning those results right now but some of the other states people are questioning pretty significantly right now. Joe biden is up less than eight thousand fewer than eight thousand votes in nevada. It's incredibly tight right now. Nevada is it would be very helpful to president. Trump's reelection wisconsin. The race is about twenty thousand votes apart right now. Just imagine a slim that margin is twenty thousand votes. It's still an incredibly slim margin. And then in some places you're talking about eight or ten thousand votes. joe biden. Has that narrow narrow lead in wisconsin again. That didn't look that way last night but now that we're all waking up this morning it would appear that way michigan right now Which was for trump. When i when i woke up is now separated by twelve thousand votes. Twelve thousand votes basically unheard of just that slim margin for joe biden in pennsylvania. Trump has a commanding lead. Go trump is up six hundred thousand votes in pennsylvania with seventy six percent of estimated votes reported and yet they won't call it for trump. they won't call it for trump because if trump has pennsylvania if he has north carolina if he has georgia puts them in a very good place. He still probably has to win. Wisconsin or michigan but puts them in a very very strong position. They won't call those trump states and there seems to be some irregularities going on in other places as well even liberal outlets admitted that it was weird last night when they stopped counting the votes allegheny county. Pennsylvania suspended the scanning mail in ballots last night and they said that they were going to postpone it until ten. Am local time unheard of. That was according to nbc. Fulton georgia's stopped counting mail in ballots after a burst water. Pipe delayed the counting of about fifty thousand ballots. That was according to the new york. Times burst water pipe. You don't say. Did your dog eat the mail in ballots to joe biden to get to bed. He was probably already in bed before but he got out last night about it. And what was it about our time. Maybe eleven o'clock or earlier. Even joe biden comes on stage very positive very hopeful and to my mind a little too confident. We feel.

"Hi i'm imprac host of axios recap. We are back with our special axios election. Twenty twenty coverage what we're watching is what's happening in pennsylvania which many people think will be the tipping point state for president trump or former vice president biden with me. Is emily previti reporter for w. f. an npr station in pennsylvania. And she's on the ground in luzern county which in two thousand sixteen went for president trump by twenty points after election after election going for democrats. So emily you're in luzerne county pennsylvania northeastern pennsylvania. What are you so far seeing on the ground in terms of turnout. Enthusiasm all the above. So we're seeing high turnout in lisburn and across the state based on what i've heard from my colleagues elsewhere and i'm getting a pretty even mix of registered democrats and republicans and even fewer unaffiliated voters. But definitely some of those. Well we have a better idea of. Who's voted by mail. As of yesterday the pennsylvania department of state data showed there are about two and a half million ballot have been returned and received by counties and of those nearly one point. Six million were by democrats around five hundred fifty six thousand by republicans so definitely a heavier. Turn out by mail by democrats. Those of us who are outside of pennsylvania how we should watch the results coming in tonight. So for example as you said a lot of these ballots. None of the mail in ballots could be opened until today in pennsylvania will a precinct say in lisburn county or in philly or in pittsburgh. Will they report the quote on the ground numbers without yet reporting the absentee. Will they wait until they have a full count from their precinct. It depends on the county. And i know that some county is most of those that have a relatively small number of registered voters. I think the largest is cumberland with a hundred and eighty seven thousand and it goes down from there to watch. That has about two registered voters. There are several that are not even starting until tomorrow to count anything and so county is will post tonight tonight and then the plans for updating those numbers they usually do that at the end of the day is counting if we're to base it on practices during the primary which again was really the first one that substantial numbers of voters cast ballots by mail in pennsylvania and the only election that we have for a basis of comparison. So when i watch tv tonight and it says luzerne county reports. One candidate is up by ten points. There's a pretty good chance that that won't be the actual number when all of a sudden done correct what the environment been like in lucerne in those areas these kind of these trump heavy areas of pennsylvania in terms of both political ads but also conversation. This is a national election and these are very divisive figures to a certain extent are their local issues that are also at play here that are informing the national so. I'm not hearing that from people. I'm hearing people who support the president. Say that they like the way that you know what. He's done for veterans. They like the way that he handles foreign policy that they think the best hope for economic improvement would be another four years of a trump presidency and honestly a lot of people who support biden. When you ask them why it's basically that he's not the president and then they have critiques of the president to share. So i'm not hearing a lot of pennsylvania's specific hyper local issues. From voters as far as dictating their choice for president. You get a sense that they feel that their vote. This year in this election matters more perhaps than their votes have in the past because so many people seem to think the outcome is going to rest on. What pennsylvania does no one's really indicated that they've just sort of some people comment oh all eyes are pennsylvania but it doesn't really seem to be something they're thinking about too much. It seems that they like everyone else are just very curious to know what the final outcome is going to be aren't so concerned with whether voters elsewhere are going to be paying a lot of attention to pennsylvania. Emily final question for you. There have been some reports coming out today. Sources with trump campaign suggesting that they are at least a little bit disappointed by their. Get out the vote results in pennsylvania you said you have seen good turn out strong in luzern. Which again is a red area. Is the turnout the in person turn out what officials locally were expecting it to be a little more the less turnout his high everywhere but i also think election officials expected turn out to be high. I know that luzern did elect trump in two thousand sixteen has always been pretty even democrats register republicans. But they are actually. There are more democrats. Twenty thousand mark registered in luzerne county than republicans. It's one hundred six thousand democrats here and eighty six thousand republicans as of the latest statistics from the pennsylvania.

"It's got a broad mix of demographics with big cities, rural areas and suburban voters in between it's also got twenty electoral votes. The sixth highest of all, the states president trump narrowly won Pennsylvania in two, thousand sixteen and the state is shaping up to be an even harder fought battleground this time. Around we turn now to our national political reporter John McCormack Hi John. Hi, thanks for having me. So John Pennsylvania is uniquely positioned even among the battleground states in terms of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent economic fallout. What can you tell us? Well, we did a data analysis looking at the unemployment compared to a year earlier and also the. Deaths per capita for every county in America what we found when we did that analysis was that a Pennsylvania among the battleground states has the largest proportion of counties that fall into both of those unfortunate pockets has a lot of counties that have unemployment rates that are in double digits much higher than a year ago because of the pandemic and it also. Has a good number of counties that have deaths per capita rates that are in the top twenty percent of all counties. So we we looked at both of these benchmarks to try to get a sense for you know which battleground state is sort of suffering the most pain right now related to the pandemic in Pennsylvania really stands out in in those rankings. Let's dig into some specific county as you call Bucks County in suburban Philadelphia a battleground within a battleground. Tell us more about that what's happening there? Yes. So the unemployment rate in in Bucks County, which is just outside of Philadelphia. It's nine point seven percent, and that's more than double what it was a year ago and we used your ago figures because there's a season -ality. Unemployment rates, and so we looked at what was the unemployment rate a year ago for the same month and then compared to that that month this year and bucks is a county that Democrats and Republicans have fought over very closely. In recent elections. Hillary Clinton wanted by eight tenths of one percentage point I was simply like three or four thousand votes in A. County that is home to about six, hundred, twenty, eight, thousand people, and so it is a place that gets a lot of attention. Every presidential election cycle it has an area called lower box, which is in the southern end of the county and is a little grittier more industrial and certainly more densely populated, and there's a lot of white working class voters in that area. You know really rallied around Donald. Trump. In two, thousand, sixteen in his campaign of course hopes that they'll rally around him again in this presidential election. So it's a big county. It's a complex county, has a real widespread in terms of soda sort of socio economics, and we'll be intensely fought over by the way former vice president Joe Biden will be going there on Saturday. We all know he hasn't been doing a lot of on the ground campaigning this summer and fall, but he's starting to do more of it and one of his stops this weekend will be in bucks. County. So that indicates it's important. You anticipated my next question. How are the dynamics you just described influencing how president trump and Joe Biden are approaching Pennsylvania especially in the final days of this election and how does that compare to what saw in the candidate approach to Pennsylvania in two? Thousand Sixteen Yeah Well Twenty Sixteen. There was a lot of emphasis on Pennsylvania as well. Hillary Clinton held her national political convention in the summer in Philadelphia. So that was an indication of how important the state was back then as well. Of course, president trump won the state very narrow sort of as part of his you know northern Great Lakes, trifecta Pennsylvania Michigan Wisconsin that really sealed the presidency for 'em and So it's important. Again, this time Joe Biden's headquarters is in his campaign headquarters is in Philadelphia, and when you look at the the television reservations that are in place for both campaigns between now and the election Pennsylvania on a dollars per electoral vote basis in other words if you look at all the advertising spending that's going to be going on in Pennsylvania and the next week and a half if you then divide by how many electoral votes each state has and sort of do the math on that Pennsylvania ranks right at the top specially for Joe Biden in terms of places where he's going to put a lot of dollars on television screens in the coming days. So John Given, everything we've just talked about just how key is Pennsylvania going to be in this election let's arguably the most important battleground state. Now obviously, Florida's is also very important twenty seven electoral votes, but Pennsylvania has twenty and it's sort of viewed as critical for both of these candidates from Vice President Joe Biden is from Pennsylvania. You know if if he can't win the state that was born in that, that does have a lot of sort of working class that he's trying to appeal to that could be pretty telling in terms of what happens on election night. So it'll be very much watched. Some of the outside groups that are trying to influence the presidential race they sorta described Pennsylvania as. Camel's back. They feel like if if trump can't win Pennsylvania then there's really probably know path for him. It's always dangerous to say those sorts of things because you know like anything there can be surprises in in different combinations of these states can add up to the two hundred and seventy that you need to win. But certainly, a lot of eyes will be on Pennsylvania and a lot of resources and time will be going into the state in the next week and a half before the Election Wall Street. Journal.

"Need to know in politics for Tuesday October Twentieth Democrats score a big court victory over Pennsylvania voting rules. Discuss that plus new mechanisms to enforce the rules in presidential debates and finally Republicans for Biden keep making themselves known. The Supreme Court of the United States in a four four ruling said the State Supreme Court Pennsylvania ruling about voting and when absentee ballots mailed ballots can be counted should stand. Now this is really important John Roberts the chief justice of the United States sided with the more liberal justices to come up with this four four ruling, and since there are only eight currently on the court as we await Amy Kuney, Barrett ascension to the Supreme Court a means that four four. Split the lower court ruling. In this case, the Pennsylvania Supreme. Court it stands. Well, what is that ruling that ruling is than if ballots are postmarked or sent by election day but received up to three days after up to November six th, they shall still be counted. This is a huge advantage for the Democrats who have been fighting across the country in state after state to try and get some extended deadlines not for when the ballots can be cast or sent but extended. For when the ballot can be counted received if the mail system is overloaded because so many more Americans are voting by mail this election season than ever have before in American history and so Democrats are fighting to make sure that if those ballots were postmarked insent election day as they need to be according to the rules that there is some window of time thereafter where they can be received and still be counted in Pennsylvania. That timeline is now three days after election day according to the United States Supreme Court Donald Trump. Clearly was not pleased with the ruling. Ruling yesterday that was ridiculous who they can count ballots after the election's over what kind of a thing. So what does that mean we're gonNA wait 'til after November third and sought denouncing states. That's crazy. But we got a strange ruling from the supreme. Court yesterday I was very strange once again chief justice John. Roberts. A Bush appointee clearly disappointing the president in his own positioning on the issue on the Supreme Court. But let me just debunk with the president is saying here they're talking about counting the ballots after the election's over these. Are, votes that are cast for the election either they were cast before Election Day or they were sent in postmarked on election day. These are not people who are voting after the election's over. It's simply that it's going to take some time to count all of the mail ballots. Now here's the thing about Pennsylvania, folks pack your patience. It is one of those states that has almost no history of voting by mail no real history of a big percentage of absentee votes. So it is going to be an entirely new process for them. And they can't begin counting votes until Election Day. There's no processing of all those votes that are coming in by mail in advance of Election Day like occurs in some states, they can't even start sorting and counting the male votes that they've received thus far never mind over the next two weeks still until election day. So they can't county to election day and they're gonNA have like a five hundred percent increase of what they normally have in terms of vote by mail. So it's going to take them a while to count which is. Why when you look at the election returns on election night out of Pennsylvania, the in Person Election Day vote which we expect to be a very pro-trump vote emmy look like Donald Trump's win in Pennsylvania going away. But remember we know that more Democrats than Republicans are inclined to vote early and by mail. So as these do get counted, you can begin to see that blue shift in a place like Pennsylvania occur from election day going forward for the next three days that the Supreme Court says, they can now.

I really don't think so I just don't see it I mean it's like he's like we said he's been there forty seven years. He's done. He's done absolutely nothing for this area, and then he comes back here like I mean I, don't know I can't. Have too much support. I mean he saves his hometown. Right. Points absolutely not. He's done the for this area and at the same time, Davis become completely disillusioned with the democratic. Party is like. They want nothing to do with the people right now their biggest and main goal is To Be Donald Trump. That's what they're concentrating on that. That's it. So we left a party. Me and my wife, Madonna. Republican side and that's I think the publican bars for the working class here. Democrat Democrats are somewhere else. I, mean just put down there off somewhere else listen to Dave. You can tell there is break from the Democratic Party isn't just about policy do you get the feeling that the national? Democrat sometimes look down on trump voters. Oh absolutely. Absolutely. facebook page I got the democratic committing more personal. Trump signs means you're retarded this and that visceral it's cultural people today call me a racist for supporting the president. So I always telling. Raises Car won't work with me. You know you could stick ripe your ass the way he thinks about the Democratic Party in the way he thinks the Democratic Party thinks about him. Are Fundamentally different. Especially when it comes to race I feel I'm the furthest thing from racist and Dave is very clear. He is not a racist I. Help anybody there used to be a poor guy who used to ride the bus use ties bike to the bus. And he worked up one of the local factors here and I think he had a flat tire he's pushing his bike to work and I stopped them I. so where do you work and I I? gave him ride the work. I took his bike here I, fixed this higher from. And I met him back at his workstation. Same guys to see what can. Pick them up with them, ride the work I mean. That's racist. No I watch baseball was being played. To me, I think, ninety percent of them were black, right? People. What in your mind? What makes a racist? What makes a race? Would you say is racist. I made if somebody comes right out and blatantly expresses or hey towards one religion or color or something like that. That's the way I would look at it. You'd have the George Floyd Video. What did you? Police officers, fault I. Don't know like I said, I didn't see the true topsy report. I'm hearing rumors or whatever's on facebook or whatever and. He was loaded up on. I mean people are saying I wanNA cop murder them I I don't see that way could happen to anybody anytime. You know the quarterback, the other way round black I with the way black cop the white. Guy. You wouldn't see a big moment on that. Do you think trump is racist. You think because some people critique him as racist people consider them racist. Like I said, my definition of racists is. Somebody, who's shows pure hatred, which I don't know anybody like that. Is like. It's getting bad I mean they might take Serb off the shelves Snoddy WanNa, take off the shelves they WanNa, take decided supermarket really come on. Too. Far. It's way too. I don't believe in it. I think people are just getting way too far out of hand with all of this. So. Donald. Trump's campaign clearly knows that for him to win again, he's going to need a lot more. Dave Mitch Goes. This is animals with at least Spiegel. And we are in old forge Pennsylvania just outside of Scranton. Eight trump rallies and that's the thing about Pennsylvania. It's a state with a lot more white working class people many of whom didn't vote in two thousand sixteen. The rally is going to start in a couple of hours and people are lining this street with a lot of American flags. So Indiana lease into one of many trump events in northeastern Pennsylvania, there are bikers for trump. There's MOMS for trump to the campaign is finding them. Describe the scene that we're we're in here. Well, I mean it's a I would say an orderly bunch of folks. I would say. It's reflective of more of a middle working class group I. Don't see many three piece suits around here and I think it was just listening to the news that that seems to be the shift. The Republican Party was always kind of of the. The more business person and whatever, and the Democrat Party was more for the working class kind of average Joe if you will no pun intended Joe Biden but. I. Think There's a shift going on. A Democrat turned Republican. When did that happen for you? I just turned to share this year. I've been a die hard democrat. My biggest fear dying is telling. Peter I voted for a bomb. I'm a union construction work. I'm not. GonNa say we're trade but I talked to carpenters, electricians, steelworkers, plumbers, and masons. And I'd say eighty five to ninety percent of us. Want trump. Most of the Union Tradesman, they want company vote for trump exactly like two thousand sixteen because I talked to a lot of them. Are you a Democrat as well? Yes. What was it that made you change? I what trump had to say I now like what he is done and I worked. As a volunteer for the trump campaign. Has. Anything that's happened in the last few months swayed your support or change your mind in any way. made it stronger. How do you feel like he's done in handling the pandemic that's going on well, they want him to be a miracle worker and there's no miracles for this. He did the best he could with the information that he has he's the president asked please people pleased millions of people you know like how how can you do that? You can't make everyone. Happy. So what else could he possibly do? There's things wrong because he didn't know what it was. It's not trump's fault that this happened. Didn't come from trump and he shouldn't be the one being penalized by it. Came out of. I think the big thing he did was he stopped the thing that everybody else was saying in fact Biden, said you can't do that. You're a racist you stop the Chinese from coming in. and. How about the things that have been happening this summer with.

This would manifest in Philadelphia. Far, from being the haphazard city whose Latte was based on unpredictable and sporadic growth. Philadelphia was more or less a master designed city. Philadelphia would quickly begin to grow and expand, and by the time seventeen fifty rolled around it would have the largest population of any city in the North American British colonies. Pennsylvania was further located at a strategically important spot within North America. Located between the southern colonies such as Virginia and the Carolinas and the northern colonies in new. England and New York Pennsylvania was any position to be a trading hub virtually from its very conception. This is going to help to explain how ecology that is coming into the game relatively late is quickly going to grow to become a center of power within the North American colonies. We are going to leave our story here for now. Next. Time, we are going to spend our time looking at the politics of Pennsylvania Self.

Forget early in the game to Justin feels fumbled. The ball can take a tumble but they hunkered down. They get focused and they came back a okay beat Penn State by eleven points. I thought that was a defining moment in number three Clemson. They're defining moment everybody know they have pretty much. What do you call it type schedule when you play like a bunch of this week teams cupcake will? ACC Today played North Carolina North Carolina that only that pushed washed the Tigers to the brink in almost won that game fell two point conversion they didn't convert and ended up losing by one point.

"All right. Give us the update here. Yeah. We I covered this case back in episodes, one forty six and one forty eight involving a state case captioned league of women voters versus Pennsylvania. And so this involves the Republican twenty eleven redistricting plan, which was challenged in the Pennsylvania supreme court under Pennsylvania's constitution. Thus circumventing the issues that we talked about in the last segment of you know, alternately putting a highly political issue before what is likely to be a partisan supreme court. And and so so let's talk about that a little bit Pennsylvania is a parody Matic example of packing and cracking. Right. We have a blue state that. It is a swing state and since twenty eleven there have been three congressional elections Pennsylvania has eighteen congressional districts. And so, you know, blue state slightly democratic maybe fifty to forty eight right? How do you think Pennsylvania's eighteen districts were have gone in the past three elections? Well, going with your math. I'm Jay, I'm I'm gonna just I've I'll say nine and nine because it's a swing state, and I'm guessing. Yeah. The representation will be roughly what the public is voting so nine and nine. Yeah. Yeah. Thirteen to five Republican and that other two five result. That thirteen to five result persisted from twenty twelve right, which was a pretty blue year. Right. That was the Barack Obama's reelection in which he carried Pennsylvania by nearly double digits in twenty fourteen despite the fact that the democratic share of the vote dropped off by six percent still thirteen to five Republican and then again in twenty sixteen when Donald Trump carried Pennsylvania still thirteen to five Republican. Well, I'm no math democratic sounds to me like something is wrong. Yeah. And and what's wrong is that the Republican plan tax all of the democratic voters into those five districts such that the Democrats have won those five districts by an average by an average vote share of overset. Seventy five percent and twenty twelve and twenty sixteenth. Yeah. So if you're thinking about, you know, how do you make sure that democratic votes are wasted? Yeah. You you put all the Democrats into these districts where Democrats are going to win no matter what? And you're just piling on huge margins thus enabling Republicans to win the remainder the rest of the state with under sixty percent of the vote. So this is the classic red map formula, and in and in fact, red map was used in Pennsylvania and so- league of women voters common cause a bunch of plaintiffs sued to invalidate they entire math. And interestingly again, as we as we flagged from the beginning of the second, they sued under article one section five of the Pennsylvania state constitution, which says elections shall be free. And equal. No power civil or military shell at anytime interfere to prevent the free exercise of the right of suffrage. So that sidesteps, right. We've talked about it is pending before the supreme court does partisan gerrymandering violate the due process and equal protection clauses of the US constitution, Pennsylvania has its own constitutional provision that are on. Sorry. Remember because there's there's so much bad Republican gerrymandering everywhere. This was that one weird trick that was the kind of positive news on how they were going to keep it at the state level. That was the state. That's exactly right and good and the state supreme court. Yeah. So not only did the state supreme court rule that this twenty eleven plan that partisan gerrymandering, violates that provision of the Pennsylvania state constitution. But ultimately after remand ING and trying to get the Republican legislature to redraw the map in a way that was fair and the Republican legislature making, you know, tiny little marginal changes, ultimately, the Pennsylvania state supreme court redrew, the district's themselves they hired an outside expert. I mean, they, you know, the judges didn't sit down and do it. But the court commissioned an independent expert to redraw the districts to make them more fair..

"If each date you know that govern game exactly and the actual process itself. So the two thousand and ten election was used not just in terms of the bringing the tea party to power, the ideological conservatism, that it represents go headlines. Yeah, just to piggyback on that. Just one thing that I think we saw with Pennsylvania's, you know, you know, one of the most agree GIS gerrymandered maps in the country. We see one party control, right? We see that the Republicans controlled the house, the Senate, the governor's office, and you know, they made the laws. They made the rules and there was no really check combined. Democrats would do. That's being nonpartisan ab- now you're not being partisan, but the Democrats have done that. So already pointed out, there's a district in Maryland. Yeah. So this is not partisan both parties. We'll do this. Well, that's exactly the point I wanted to go to because if regardless of party, if the party has the power, it seems very natural. In terms of American politics try to consolidate that power, but but you know, when Republicans do it and there have they have done here in Pennsylvania. Democrats have done it elsewhere. People keep talking to me about Maryland, California, back in the eighties and nineties. But the point is, is that is there a way to come up with a fair system that does mostly remove politics from the equation? And and here let me just let me just do some limit. Let me play for you a little bit of tape here. This is again Valentino degeorge. Oh, he's the GOP chairman of Pennsylvania, and he basically just takes. He takes issue with that entire question because he says it's perfectly fine. With legislators, creating districts, and he really opposes the idea of any other systems, specifically, an independent citizens commission, which we'll talk about here in a second. He poses other systems to draw future congressional maps, and here's what he said. So legislators are in the best position to draw lines and look the end of the day, heaven forbid, politics should enter into a piece of legislation that draws part, you know, political maps stunned over the country. Democrats join maps to their favors in other states, look Marilyn. So you know, this is nonsense. This was part of a Barack Obama, Eric Holder, fair districting plan. They called it to take back congressional seats and they've done it here in Pennsylvania. That's fell to Georgia, Pennsylvania GOP chair. So Lindsey, Lazar ski. He's he basically says, we know the state the best we should draw the maps. But there is this other idea about an independence, it isn't commission. What would that look like in Pennsylvania? I just have to say, I love that operatic music behind veils. And it was. It was a Columbus Day festival in Philadelphia. Taking me there to south Philly. So you know a group in Pennsylvania, fair district's PA for a number of years now they've been trying to. Change the Pennsylvania constitution and to implement an independent citizens commission that would actually draw the lines and they've modeled this after California, and this is really a grassroots organization. You see them at street fairs. You see them at avent's canvassing and you know they, they're asking the legislators to basically vote against their interests to form this commission. As you pointed out it, there is a such a commission in California made up of appointed independent citizens. And I think some several other couple other states in the west have similar similar commission. So do they work though? Have they created fairer districts if you talk to the people on the commission? Yes. If you talked to voters. Yes. I think a key difference between Pennsylvania and California is that in Pennsylvania, there's no referendum. So basically to get that process in place, the state legislature would have to. Pass a constitutional amendment, and then it would go to the voters in a referendum, and there's no guarantee. There's no guarantee that an independent commission itself would be truly independent. By somebody that that that's or hold positions by virtue get on get on the commission by virtue of a position they already hold or you could have state lawmaker leaders appoint a few. You could have different groups. Yeah, it it can get. It can get complicated, but here's what's fascinating until Baker versus car supreme court decision..

"From WB you are Boston NPR I'm Meghna Chuck Roberti and this is on point. We've got a special broadcast today from the studios of WHYY in Philadelphia, and we're in Pennsylvania because yes, the keystone state is key to American politics. It's a microcosm of the country as a whole populous with a mix of urban and rural voters. The electorate here is pretty evenly split between Republicans and Democrats. You'll remember that President Trump won Pennsylvania by less than forty. Five thousand votes out of the six million ballots cast here in two thousand sixteen, so it would make sense to expect that same even split in the state's congressional delegation, half democrat half Republican, but that is not the case. The GOP holds thirteen out of Pennsylvania's eighteen congressional seats in part because Pennsylvania had one of the most extremely gerrymandered congressional maps in the country will that change this year. The state supreme court struck down the old district map and. Suddenly more than a half dozen of Pennsylvania's congressional races are newly competitive, and that could mean major change in the midterm elections. So this hour on point Pennsylvania's adventures in redistricting and the impact it could have on American politics. Now we've been spending several days here in Pennsylvania, getting a sense of the districts old and new. So I wanna start today in the states old. Seventh district in a parking lot in king of Prussia, Pennsylvania. So this district was known as goofy, kicking Donald, a strange name, but that's what the extremely gerrymandered shape of the old. Seventh district looked like a Disney brawl. We're standing outside creeds, seafood and steaks squeezed between the Pennsylvania turnpike and county line expressway. And we're here with Kate. Doyle Montgomery County lead for fair districts, Pennsylvania, a nonpartisan group that's pushing for permanent change in the state's districting rules. This parking lot is little infamous when it comes to the previous seventh district, Pennsylvania, it is connecting point. It is approximately one hundred and seventy meters long or about five hundred fifty feet. The old seventh spread along contorted twists and turns for some fifty miles from the Pennsylvania suburbs to Amish country. But this pinch point you sane bolt could cross the seventh district in about sixteen seconds, correct? So it's it's really just as wide as a parking lot. I mean, why did they do that? It has to be contiguous. In other words, no matter how strange the shape the district has to be a single unit that has been a long standing rule in Pennsylvania, says, fair districts, rich Rafferty, who's also with us Rafferty and dole both emphasized that gerrymandering has been practiced beloved by both parties, but the huge difference. Now, the availability of voter records and vast amounts of consumer information. Rafferty says the combination of big data and sophisticated mapping technology allows district lines to zigzag from house to house making certain seats so safe. The opposition simply falls.
