California moves up primary, wants bigger impact 2020 vote

"So California wanted to be more relevant in the democratic nominating committee process and they've moved their primary up right so now we're gonna be voting on Tuesday on super Tuesday for the first time instead of in June what sort of impact is gonna have on the racetrack let's start with you well I think a lot of people are just thrilled to California's if relevant this year more so than if we had our primary in June which is where used to be you know that the nomination is still up for grabs in California has four hundred fifteen delegates up for grabs in particular that's that's gonna have a big impact the problem with California's it's so expensive you know to campaign here and so we've seen the candidates come here raise money but not too many of them have really been here campaigning except for like very recently and so they're they're spending time in Texas and other places where there can they can be on television for less money no and I think another reason was moved up is perhaps to help California candidates like Kamala Harris and perhaps Eric Swalwell they dropped out and so you have to say that you know in in I think if Eskom Herskovitz help make California more relevant she would say no and there are a couple pulls out this week that show that Bernie Sanders certainly has the lead among likely democratic voters here in California it can anyone take that away from him or is it just has to win at this time I mean look after twenty sixteen we don't make predictions on an X. ray I think that it would be very surprising if anyone were to beat Bernie Sanders however as you said it was with Warren is in second and not change research KQED poll she certainly stands if those numbers are right to pick up some delegates which could help her momentum a lot of people who have gotten their vote by mail ballot sixteen million were sent out or holding on to them way later than they have in years past including if you look at people who analyze this like Paul Mitchell says that that includes people who are very consistent voters so it's not as if it's just like people about their ballots and maybe they're not gonna turn them and it does seem like they've been waiting to see these debates to seem about it to see South Carolina so I do think that Joe Biden you know what happens in South Carolina could really help him stay in this race I think if you're Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or Joe Biden you might hope that the other candidates are cold and it comes at a two or three way race after super Tuesday but there's still a lot up in the air at this point the big question too is can't other how many other candidates are gonna hit that fifteen percent threshold because in order to get any delegates in a congressional district or statewide you have to get fifteen percent so the more that Bernie Sanders gets the less of the pie there is for the other candidates to divide up so you could have a situation where Bernie Sanders if he reaches forty five fifty percent of the vote no one else reaches fifteen percent that would be a huge win for him but I mean everything because it is absolutely right in terms of how hard it is to campaign her expensive it is but let's be clear it's February you know Mar almost March third there months ago well but also like if if this is the primary was happening in June in California this nomination be locked up so we are relevant we do matter we just don't get the same attention they get in Iowa New Hampshire South Carolina because there's four forty million of it all the more relevant because were earlier absolutely and I think that you know you're seeing in terms of both the attention we're getting from the candidates but also just from the national media for once let's turn a little bit and talk about property can you tell me a little bit about what this will do and what's significant about research yes this is a measure that's kind of been talked about for a long time in San Francisco it would essentially penalize folks who own properties that keep about street level vacant storefronts are talking about commercial properties and this is really been a problem in neighborhoods including North Beach are are we are other commercial corridors it's interesting because this is one of those things that I think you know some property owners aren't too happy about the ideas you get taxed if you leave it vacant if you fill it you're okay you don't have that tax the money that would be raised would go to small businesses you know people against it say why are you making it even harder retails already suffering but I think what's interesting is you look at who's lined up on in support of it and the town that doesn't agree on much the mayor is on board the more progressive supervisors us poorer the chronicle endorsed it it's less controversial than I would have expected and is this Scott because of the flight that we're seeing with I think so and you know I just friends just anecdotally when I talk to people who have been in that place for many many many years harvest market on on Market Street for example they were there thirty years and the rent got doubled and that's storefront is still vacant it was over a year and a half ago and so what happens is you get homeless people you get blight it's better to send a looks bad this less inviting to people want to go shop on that blocker in that neighborhood and so you know I think that there's just a concern that it's it's are these languages being greedy waiting for a big chain store to command or a bank or something like that who can afford these top dollar rents and what's even in that that's the case let's make him pay something for you know for that sort of work it out it's a small business and enterprise yeah right right so we do have South Carolina coming up and so talking about South Carolina Joe Biden certainly has to win in this state from everything he said really do you think there's any chart for him if he does not win South Carolina can he move forward he really needs to do well I mean he has said very categorically I'm going to win South Carolina and you know he needs that moment it's a first of all he's been staking problems chips on South Carolina show the African American vote is going to be really a firewall for him and then going into super Tuesday that would give momentum to some of the other states like Alabama Tennessee Texas you know where they're more African American voters and I you know if he comes in second or just barely wins in South Carolina just be more consternation and anxiety among the democratic insiders like but I think maybe some pressure for him to get out but that's gonna it's gonna be a tough call but if he does really well it could sling shot him into super Tuesday that really well means winning it doesn't seem coming in one close by a double digit margin I think that that is the key here he has to not only win but win big and he has to really show that he has that support from the African American community and I think other communities as well because we know this year that communities of color women of color in particular are going to be key if Democrats really want to be a take on trump and beat him in November and has Joe Biden been able to solidify any of those groups with the when the women of color around him well I think if you look at the polls he's doing exceptionally well among African American voters but interestingly California billionaire Tom Steyer's actually cut into that margin he's been running a lot as we talk about triage he has really put his chips on South Carolina as well I'm I think that does raise questions and I think the splitting of the vote amongst the more centrist candidates is really making it hard for some voters to make that call do they go with Bloomberg with his deep pockets so they go with you know Joe Biden who they know it's certainly some younger African Americans in South Carolina really likes tire yeah I think there's a big generational divides Marie's this point you know a lot of older African Americans really like Joe Biden was younger ones are like more open to Bernie Sanders Tom's tire one of the younger candidates a few words before we go corona virus suddenly putting health care front center well I don't think it's gonna scare people from voting but it you know we see what's happening with the Dow and if the stock market tanks further in the economy begins to really have a hard time even that takes away one of the pillars of Donald trump's argument for being reelected and that's where it could have an impact we just don't know where is where it's going and where it's going to be come the fall Scott Schaefer and Marie's Lagos thank you so much for being
