"Three. Number three. I was surprised to hear you come out and endorsed Senator Manchin legislation. Tell me about that. I am endorsing the fact that we now have a list of priorities, and Joe Manchin is at the table and he's part of the conversation. It's an important step forward as we try to protect the freedom to vote that is Stacey Abrams. And if you want to have a bipartisan piece of legislation don't put Stacey Abrams on it. She's very polarizing. Is Joe about to break Yes, Joe Manchin has put forward changes to HR one, the left wing revamp of voting system. Now he might be ready to join his party on the legislation. However, it won't pass without the filibuster being banned. Will he do it? Number 21 of the greatest things the President Trump did for this country was shutting down asylum fraud. Categorically, What Merrick Garland has done here is extreme..

"The democrats in the biden administration or pushing force on her mentioned. Says he won't sign onto any bill expanding voting rights or protecting voting rights unless some republicans agree to vote for it to mitch mcconnell. The republican leader in the senate has pledged that zero. Republican senators will vote for voting rights. Bill no matter. What but senator manchin effectively blamed democrats for that implying that they're to blame for republicans all saying no to it. They're to blame for crafting. Their voting rights bill in such a way that no republicans felt like they could get behind it interesting development though on this yesterday rather than just continuing to say that blaming his colleagues senator manchin decided he would try to prove it. He decided to sort of show his work on his theory and he wrote up a list of what he thought should go in a voting rights. Bill that he thought should get both democratic and republican support. It's a very different set of proposals than what democrats have put in. Their bill has a bunch of stuff on it that in fact are things that republicans want democrats really don't but he's doing this to show that there's a way that he understands to write a voting bill that republicans will vote for earlier. This week senator. Manchin tried to prove the point. He met with eight senators from the republican side of the aisle to pitch them on his so called. Compromise voting rights plan. But even with all that even with his. You know everything. I want and nothing. I don't offering even if with him personally. Working republican senators on the other side of the aisle to get him to vote for his plan which he crafted specifically to appeal to them. Look at what the republican leader mitch. Mcconnell said today about joe mentions new pitch. He said quote same. Rotten core headline there. Mcconnell rejects mentions voting rights compromise. Senator mentioned you're not going to get the ten republican senators. You would need to vote for your voting rights compromise mitch. Mcconnell said it he said zero republicans will vote to defend voting rights in any way in any way shape or down form if the country is gonna have any action any defense on voting rights. It is going to have to be without any republicans that is not. Just what critics of senator manchin have been saying. That's what senator mentioned has just proven with his bipartisan experiment. His maximalist bipartisan experiment. On voting rights senator mentioned says defending the right to vote is a priority for him but he has now himself proven that there's only one path to get it which is to change the senate rules that voting rights can be passed by democrats alone. What neck center. That is going to do it for us tonight. Thank you for bearing with us through some of our technical difficulties. I know the show sometimes looked a little catty. What puts tonight We'll try to handed back on dry land by tomorrow. I'll see you again tomorrow night. The show we did nine. Mr on msnbc..

"Extra. I'm jonathan freedland. Joe biden is we said often on this. Podcast has a big agenda and big ambitions troubles. Two people stand in his way. They're not republicans that democrats members of his own party. One is a man from west. Virginia the other is a woman from arizona and between them they hold the fate of the biden presidency and whether or not it will be able to achieve almost anything in their hands. Who are these two people. That's what we're talking about this week on the podcast and to do it. I spoke to sarah binder. She's professor of political science at george washington university. A real expert on the senate and she's been on the podcast before. I began my conversation with sarah by asking you about the first of these. Two people standing in joe biden's way who is joe mansion. Joe mansion is one of two senators From west virginia He has been in the senate since twenty ten and he is the democrat who comes from the rainiest state that is the state with the highest support for donald trump in the twenty twenty election. So he is a what we think of as a moderate democrat Does not have all that much in common with many of the priorities the democratic party. But he's still. The democrat still wears that democratic label He shows no interest in joining the republican party. But neither does he want to jump in with his democratic colleagues on some really high profile issues and i mean you described him as moderate. I think in a lot of other countries particularly in britain or europe but he's positions on social questions would mark him out really as a conservative small. See ya. I think that is fair. Certainly on i would say on. Economic issues is supportive of the affordable. Care act. He voted for a nearly two trillion dollar pandemic relief bill at the beginning of a congress that had a lot of government intervention into housing markets in unemployment markets and so forth but on these social issues cultural issues. He's been a bit more circumspect for sure especially on voting rights among others Does that make him a conservative. At the end of the day we look at his votes on the senate floor. Senator manchin is probably has more in common with his average democratic colleague than he has with republicans. It's interesting you've put it that way. 'cause you've talked about how he looks on the floor of the senate and you've written really interestingly recently about homestyle in politics and explain to us what that is and how it might contrast with joe mansion we see in washington dc. It's sort of the image that legislators project back home but also means how they allocate their time..

"If he were to lend his hand to it to a different bill that still leaves them with only 50 and Joe Manchin is opposed to getting rid of the filibuster. Which means you actually need 60 votes. So unless or until he can deliver 10 Republicans to his proposal. It really doesn't advance the ball substantially at all. A politico headline really brings down the hammer in terms of what you're talking about. It says GOP crushes Mansions, hopes for Elections compromise We can't get into his head as always. Do you think that mansion put too much faith? In the system that can still somehow be bipartisan. We've seen over and over again from Senator Manchin faith in the goodness of intentions of some of his colleagues that hasn't been reciprocated with any kind of follow up and several times now, including on the January six commission very recently, he expressed his belief that Republicans would come along only to be left at the altar. And in this case, he I think he believes that there are good faith efforts that are bipartisan around voting rights reform that can get buy in from Republicans. But Republicans have had enormous discipline on this issue. They've watched the movement in states, which is generally in Republican controlled states have been limiting access to the ballots. That's a ballot box, but at the federal level, they're standing in the way of any kind of changes, and that's not going to change just because Senator Manchin has a new proposal. We can never know this until it happens if it happens, but would mention now run into the open. Arms of his fellow Democrats and start working with them a little more closely than he has in the past. The hope among many Democrats is that the more Republicans obstruct the more it will make evidence to Senator Mansion that the only way to make progress is with Democrats staying United. But there's been no evidence of that, and the one point that he has been more clear than ever on is that he will not change the Senate. The way that the Senate is structured, and if that doesn't change, then his cooperation with Democrats is almost a non issue.

"Go too long Fence common schedule your free estimate today. 10 11. Republicans in the Senate have had many good things to say about moderate Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who is insisting on bipartisanship and passing parts of President Biden's agenda. Mansion says he's reaching across the aisle and talking to everyone making sure they're aware, accessible, fair and basically secured. How do we get to where we got to January? 6th? And why don't we want to fix it? But next week, the same Republicans that have been offering praise will almost surely end mansions hopes for a bipartisan deal on election reform. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell says he believes all 50 Republicans will oppose mansion slimmed down elections Compromise, which focuses on expanding early voting and ending partisan gerrymandering in federal elections. McConnell says he sees no role needed for the federal government or any change in legislation for that part, even the ones Proposed by Senator Manchin. You all have noticed that there's now a debate among Democrats over a revised version. Produced by one of the Democrats yesterday, which has been endorsed by Stacey Abrams. It's not even clear there's a single Republican vote to even bring debate on the matter. Likely dooming mansions proposals. Democratic leader Chuck Schumer is tweeting election reform and voting rights will get a vote Tuesday. We talk about all this especially focused on mansion, not getting Republicans support with ABC News political director Rick Clyde Romance is trying to find some common ground and he's come up with what he thinks are some solutions on voting. He thinks Republicans get get behind it as well. The only problem is no Republicans are actually behind it. And this comes down to a math problem because while the Democrats control the Senate, it's a 50 50 Senate Joe mansions not on board for the bill as written on voting rights.

"senator manchin" Discussed on Rusted Culture Podcast
"Welcome back folks and unfortunately as the case which is too frequent. That seems like these days. We've had another mass shooting and the thing that sad about these mass shootings obviously is the is the loss of life undoubtedly and the thing. That's pathetic about. It is the fact that we can't seem to get our heads together. Legislatively around something that makes sense. You know some commonsense gun. Legislation can't seem to do it we can't seem to pull it off and It's just sad. You know the whole the whole thing just makes it sort of look like congress has really feckless. And you can't do you know they. They need help wipe in their fannies. For god's sakes you know to put it that way. It's it's something's got to happen here. We can't have a civilization that we call civilized where we haven't done the right things legislatively to prevent things like this from happening until we say that we've done everything that we can do in the realm of common sense to keep these things from happening. We how can we feel good with ourselves. And what we've done legislatively. We simply can but in the past two weeks. The house has passed two bills that her senator round gun sales and tightening the regulations around those on sales. Now what they've done just to make the sort of confusing. And i think it's confusing anyway as they put this package together they call at. Hr eight okay. So you've got this package. It's got two bills that are inside of it the first one is called The bipartisan background checks. Act of twenty twenty one and with this aims to do as expand background checks on people looking to purchase or transfer firearms in actually passed. Believe it or not with eight republican votes which is astounding these days especially so the second bill. That's in this package again called. Hr is hr fourteen forty six. And it's it's also referred to as something that were closed what they call the charleston loophole and that charleston loophole basically allows gun sales to proceed without a background check. If three business days have passed. Okay so that's being. Authored by james representative congressman james clyburn of south carolina. So it's it's kind of a strange loophole. There that ended up killing people. And i'll tell you how but it's a loophole again. If the background check isn't completed within three business days than the gun sales can just go right on through. So this law the one that james clyburn sponsored. Hr fourteen forty six bill. It would make it illegal for anyone to sell a gun. That isn't a licensed firearm dealer. So that's how they're gonna deal with if you want to sell a firearm. You've got to be a licensed firearm dealer. Anyone who has a gun that wants to sell it has to go through somebody. Who's a licensed fire arm dealer. And this is the part that today Not so many words. Joe manchin said that he hates. He said today that he doesn't support this legislation largely because of that he wants people who know each other to be able to sell a gun to each other right. I mean it kind of makes sense to be honest but it's a little bit naive. The problem is how do you keep people from saying that. They just know each other to sell a gun. How do you do that. I mean in a perfect world. Senator manchin yes. People that know each other that are responsible should be able to sell a gun to each other but we don't live in a perfect world. I mean a good citizen will abide by the rules. Of course but but a lot of people are just gonna say that they know each other just to do the come sale. We know that's what's going to happen. And e that's why you really have to push these gun sales through license firearm dealer. Otherwise you've just created another loophole. That's what you've done and when it comes to people who wanna do harm loopholes and gun. Sales cost lives. We don't want to create another loophole here. So that bill. Fourteen forty six again authored by representative. James clyborn is the product of a gun sale. Loophole that killed people. You might remember back. In twenty fifteen a white supremacists use that charleston loophole to get the guns that he used to kill. Nine people. nine souls during a bible study at mother emmanuel ame church in charleston south carolina hence the name the charleston loophole. So that's why the bill h. r. Fourteen forty six in the package. Hr eight expands. The initial background checks review from three days to ten. Meaning that a gun. Sale can proceed without a completed background check if ten days has passed not three like it is ten days it makes sense. I mean it shouldn't matter. I understand that you know you. You expect that these background checks should be done as promptly and efficiently as possible and they should be able to happen within ten days. Right the intent there is ten days will give them enough time to do the background checks. So people don't end up just getting a gun without a background check but for some members to say they hate the legislation just because won't allow gun sales between people who know each other. It's just simply naive and and just creates another loophole in. That's not what we need right now. Folks we don't need another loophole that ends up costing lives. We just don't need it. And if we don't create a robust and watertight method of requiring background checks for every gun sale no matter what if it's not watertight and if it's not robust can we really claim in good conscious that we've done all we can that we've done all we can to prevent the mass shooting like the one that just happened in colorado. I mean it's incumbent on this congress and senate to do something and even now more than ever that The democrats are in control to throw the feckless reality of the past behind us and actually do something meaningful in terms of gun sale legislation. And i'm trying to keep this from going into a talk about the filibuster which you know is is all important right now. Barbara going to save that for another day till then folks. Thanks for tuning in..
Biden, Dems prevail as Senate OKs $1.9T virus relief bill
"Senate. Democratic leaders have reached an agreement over unemployment benefits with moderate democratic senator joe manchin ending a nine hour. Standoff threatened to derail action on president biden's covert relief bill. The agreement would extend the existing three hundred dollar weekly unemployment benefit through september the sixth and it offers tax forgiveness and to ten thousand two hundred dollars in unemployment benefits for those who make less than one hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year in a statement released tonight. Senator manchin said we have reached a compromise that enables the economy to rebound quickly while also protecting those receiving unemployment benefits from being hit with unexpected tax bills. Next year joining us. Now on this breaking news democratic. Senator tim kaine of virginia he is a member of the senate budget committee. And the senate armed services committee senator. Kaine good to see you this evening on one hand. I'm not quite sure what what was happening. In the senate for nine hours on the other hand we have crossed an important hurdle at this point and are moving toward the passage of this bill. Tell me what is going on malley. You're right. I mean we've got fifty democratic senators and we need every one of their votes to get this bill which will do so much good for americans to president by his desk. Senator manchin hannah concern about the way the unemployment insurance benefits were structured. And he stuck to his guns and that concern was not my concern. I i really liked the bill as it came over from the house. I think we made it. Stronger of senator manchin needed some additional adjustments to get there. But now we're there and we're gonna rocket four and they're going to be dozens. Maybe hundreds of amendments that republicans will offer tonight and tomorrow but democrats. We have linked arms with president biden said. The american public needs this relief and they needed soon. And we're gonna stay at our desks and tell sometime over the weekend. We send this bill back to a house for a quick vote so the president by to get it next week four unexpected. It's obvious why so. Many americans support this bill. It's not actually a partisan thing it's money that people need in their pockets. It is overwhelmingly popular amongst americans. It is even supported by the majority of republican voters. What's going on. what's what's the reason for. Fifty republicans not voting in favor of this and by the way. No republicans voted in favor of it in the house alley. My my gut is this. I think they've made a strategic decision and remember just replay. The tape back to the beginning of the obama biden administration. They just sort of decided no matter what. The new president offers to rescue the american economy. We're going to be against it. I will say this. This is a bill. That is just chock full of of provisions that republicans have offered in past years. It's chock full of provisions that are desired by republican governors. And mayors as you point out it's full of provisions that are popular republican voters and when it's implemented it's gonna do enormous good for republicans and independents and democrats so they made a strategic decision. That and i can't put myself in their shoes about why they don't want to be four but will be able to bring the final bill out and show you. How much bipartisan Agreement there is this bill. The democrats are just riveted upon the fact. We're still ten million jobs down from where we were laying out here. We've lost five hundred thousand people. Were not out of the woods yet. We're not gonna go slow to go fast. Climb out of this crisis.

"In just four hours midnight eastern time new HAMPSHIRITES will start voting in the first primary the two thousand twenty presidential race. You're looking there at Dixville. Notch side of the earliest balloting. Along with Hart's Location and across the state candidates have been making last minute pitches. Buddha judge tonight expected shortly Exeter Bernie Sanders speaking soon in dorm. Orm Joe Biden also campaigning. Tonight president trump who faces only token republican opposition. Tomorrow speaking as well tonight in Manchester. He is as you might imagine. The center of two competing story lines on the democratic side. One that Democrats are wilting. In the face of him and Joe Biden is in trouble and to the Joe Biden is hanging on just fine and predicts trouble in November for the president. This contracting notions are reflected in a pair of polls neither of which the last word on tomorrow or the rest of the race but both worth mentioning for what what they have to say about the momentum right here and right now one from C. N. N.'s final tracking poll in the state show Senator Bernie Sanders with a significant lead over Pete. Buddha judge Joe Biden Leiden distant third followed closely by senators. Warn Amy Klobuchar. The other Polish national one from Quinnipiac and in addition to showing Joe Biden a solid second place. It also has all those same candidates beating the president in a head to head matchup plus one at the top Mike Bloomberg running ahead by the widest margin of all. Now bearing in mind that by this time tomorrow night vote. The voters will certainly render some those predictions mood. Let's get a late read on what we know. What is happening on the ground in New Hampshire starting? CNN's political article director David Chalian. WHO's in Manchester Tonight so obviously polls W- they are where they are. The latest poll is interesting. It shows how the moderate candidates khanates or splitting potential voters expect an answer could firm up a sanders advantage. Well it might sanders does win green here and remember Anderson Bernie Sanders one here by twenty points against Hillary Clinton for years ago. Obviously that was a one on one race but if indeed the result looks like not just our report a bunch of polls showing him with an edge in this state. He'll then have come off a very strong showing in Iowa. A victory in New Hampshire. If that's what happens tomorrow tomorrow. And he will be the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. Something that had been Joe Biden's position for the entirety of last year. That's going to be a abuse shuffling of that happened in these going to no doubt 'cause a lot of hand wringing inside the sort of establishment wing of the Democratic Party if indeed Having a self described democratic socialist at the top of the ticket is the best way to move forward and be Donald Trump. There's going to be a lot of conversation about Out that if that's what New Hampshire produces tomorrow night. The candidates have been all over the state obviously today. What what's been kind of the gist of their last? Minute Appeals Yeah. I actually caught up with a couple of the my I saw people to earlier in the day. And then Amy Klobuchar Buddha just closing message he was aware of the Sanders position in this state and he was taking on Sanders specifically on the raising of middle class taxes to help pay his medicare for all plan. which you know footage doesn't support Porto? He was trying to draw that contrast he also was saying. You know it can't just be revolution versus status quo. That's the argument. He's making he says most of us don't see ourselves in that picture of revolution versus status quo. He's claiming that's Bernie. Sanders is depicting as the choice. Here asper Amy Klobuchar. I will tell you it was probably the best I've ever seen her on the campaign trail. This is somebody who is a supremely confident in this moment for her. She felt good obviously about that Friday night. Debate performance you see in these polls over the weekend that she has got a bit of momentum. Now we'll see if that translates it's to actual votes tomorrow clearly. Being with her in Exeter New Hampshire. Today you could see a candidate. That was ultra comfortable in her skin. In this moment that she thinks things are gelling for her right now. David Jolly and stay right where you are want to bring in a W. and H. N. radios Arnie Arnesen who's a longtime observer and player in in New Hampshire politics including the state's first female nominee for governor also senior political correspondent Dana Bash. Denny is the expectation their New Hampshire that that the primary areas for sanders or Buddha. Judge to lose yes. That is the expectation. No question about it. But you know Anderson That history three shows. That New Hampshire likes to surprise. Everybody the expectation in two thousand eight was that it was for Hillary Clinton's to lose and It was it was. It was a problem in two thousand sixteen for Hillary Clinton's to lose and she did and there are lots of other other examples through history of how Hampshire voters like to surprise the political chattering. Class surprise the voters in the later states to try to stir things up and change the The way that the race is. It's not clear that that it's going to happen. In this case for lots of reasons the biggest of which is that Bernie. Sanders showed for years ago that he is very popular. Here in New Hampshire. He is a neighboring senator and so That there doesn't seem to be any change in that he only seems to be gaining support. And then of course. The question is is people to judge. One of the things that I'm looking for for is the Joe Biden Factor Anderson and whether or not the The essent bad David described of AB closure is going to be so strong that it could put Joe Biden even below beneath her. And what if that happens what that will do for his fund raising and for the perception love him as somebody who could when later on in the states to top. Yeah does that affect his his alleged firewall in in South Carolina. We'll see Oranje you. You've been involved in New Hampshire politics for decades. Have you seen a primary like this. I mean such a wide field and obviously high stakes and sort of deep concern in the Democratic Party boarded personal. It's it's not just the wild wild field obviously. Donald trump has changed the landscape. So there's a an anger and a terror going into this choice that we've never experienced before I mean you may not have liked to George Bush. You may not have liked Ronald Reagan. You made out of like the Bob Dole but this is so different because everyone feels more on edge as a result and of course just the last week is sort of heightened everything from the chaos coming out of Iowa where we got no uh-huh guidance in fact what we also got was a lack of enthusiasm. We're being told that there's going to be this incredible turnout. Young people going to turn out and then the numbers were flat and then we didn't even get accurate numbers so put that out there. Take a look at the impeachment. Take a look at the state of the Union and then look at the choices we have and they're really two different paths the moderate path and the Progressive Path. But let me say something really important here Bernie Sanders in two thousand sixteen. Set The agenda for twenty twenty because every single candidate the date you're seeing whether it's moderate or progressive sound a lot like Bernie Sanders and one of the reasons while we're seeing Amy Klobuchar excited even though she can v. I think in Iowa Is that for the first time ever. I've never really thought that debates matter. Well let me tell you right now that. ABC debate really mattered because people really were so so undecided and they wanted to see someone who was consistent. Unflappable was able to take it because they're thinking who can take it to Donald Trump And what you saw on that stage especially for Amy Klobuchar was that she delivered that message. And more importantly than that she and Bernie have something in common. They've both been very consistent. They're very both unfloppable and the two of them do something very interesting. They see the electorate Bernie Sanders has a consistency with working folks. They know him they trust him. They know that if he gets elected he won't forget them. And then what was that last. Line with amy it was I see you. Do I see you and that is so important. I Know Barack Obama was about hope and change. But he didn't necessarily bring about the change for working folks and I think what they see an amy and what they see in Bernie from two different wings of the party is a message. That says I'm with you and I won't forget you. It's really interesting D.. David the the latest Quinnipiac polling. Which of course doesn't predict outcomes it helps to identify trends has sanders leading eating nationally? Sanders Leigh Nash. By these margin. If you're someone who thinks sanders is not the best candidate to win the nomination will New Hampshire be away of narrowing down the field. It's a good question and perhaps perhaps we will seattle that non sanders wing. The Biden boot. `Age if somebody is able to consolidate that that is not sort of split evenly or close to evenly among those three candidates then perhaps that person emerges right now as you he noted that National Quinnipiac poll showing sanders. The National Front runner now. It's one poll. Let's see others confirmed that. But but does New Hampshire consolidate the moderate inside consolidate behind one of those candidates. I don't know that that's clear in a lot of the pre-election Polling Anderson. It seems that is being a little more split but that is what each of them are actually banking on and by the way the reason that sanders is is out there in front now is because he has consolidated that looming Wing because Elizabeth. Warren has fallen back a little bit clearly. Sanders was able to pick up some of those voters so he's got that consolidated progressive side while that moderate side has been splitting. I don't know if we're going to get a definitive answer. Tomorrow in New Hampshire or not as to who is best positioned to try and stop op Bernie Sanders for that side of the party. That would like to stop on these. You Know Bloomberg obviously then is is in that grouping as well as third third spot in the Quinnipiac poll is not on the ballot in New Hampshire not even been on any ballad yet. It's sort of the unknown just again. We haven't seen to Tony's Ernie's point about we haven't seen something like this Hampshire. We haven't seen something like this nationwide with a person who has unlimited resources there are so so many unknowns and uncharted territory that that Mike Bloomberg is trying to to forge and obviously the first is the money that he's he's willing to spend is frankly unlimited funds and he's using them big time but also because He's not competing here in New Hampshire. He's not competing in in the early states. But it is competing in Super Tuesday which is basically it. I mean it is such a delegate rich state and it goes across it's the country In and touches so many different demographics and he is working that so hard. You know normally when we're right here right now. On the cusp of New Hampshire we would say and national poll doesn't necessarily matter because it matters more what happens in the state like this or Nevada or South Carolina Carolina but this election year. It could be different because there's such a delegate rich day on Super Tuesday in early March and because you have a a candidate who's really working that and you can't turn on the television anywhere. Look at your social media feed or go shopping online without a Michael Bloomberg add add popping up and that is appears to be at least in this all these fears to be getting something about money or Ernie earlier.

"In just four hours midnight eastern time new HAMPSHIRITES will start voting in the first primary the two thousand twenty presidential race. You're looking there at Dixville. Notch side of the earliest balloting. Along with Hart's Location and across the state candidates have been making last minute pitches. Buddha judge tonight expected shortly Exeter Bernie Sanders speaking soon in dorm. Orm Joe Biden also campaigning. Tonight president trump who faces only token republican opposition. Tomorrow speaking as well tonight in Manchester. He is as you might imagine. The center of two competing story lines on the democratic side. One that Democrats are wilting. In the face of him and Joe Biden is in trouble and to the Joe Biden is hanging on just fine and predicts trouble in November for the president. This contracting notions are reflected in a pair of polls neither of which the last word on tomorrow or the rest of the race but both worth mentioning for what what they have to say about the momentum right here and right now one from C. N. N.'s final tracking poll in the state show Senator Bernie Sanders with a significant lead over Pete. Buddha judge Joe Biden Leiden distant third followed closely by senators. Warn Amy Klobuchar. The other Polish national one from Quinnipiac and in addition to showing Joe Biden a solid second place. It also has all those same candidates beating the president in a head to head matchup plus one at the top Mike Bloomberg running ahead by the widest margin of all. Now bearing in mind that by this time tomorrow night vote. The voters will certainly render some those predictions mood. Let's get a late read on what we know. What is happening on the ground in New Hampshire starting? CNN's political article director David Chalian. WHO's in Manchester Tonight so obviously polls W- they are where they are. The latest poll is interesting. It shows how the moderate candidates khanates or splitting potential voters expect an answer could firm up a sanders advantage. Well it might sanders does win green here and remember Anderson Bernie Sanders one here by twenty points against Hillary Clinton for years ago. Obviously that was a one on one race but if indeed the result looks like not just our report a bunch of polls showing him with an edge in this state. He'll then have come off a very strong showing in Iowa. A victory in New Hampshire. If that's what happens tomorrow tomorrow. And he will be the front runner for the Democratic presidential nomination. Something that had been Joe Biden's position for the entirety of last year. That's going to be a abuse shuffling of that happened in these going to no doubt 'cause a lot of hand wringing inside the sort of establishment wing of the Democratic Party if indeed Having a self described democratic socialist at the top of the ticket is the best way to move forward and be Donald Trump. There's going to be a lot of conversation about Out that if that's what New Hampshire produces tomorrow night. The candidates have been all over the state obviously today. What what's been kind of the gist of their last? Minute Appeals Yeah. I actually caught up with a couple of the my I saw people to earlier in the day. And then Amy Klobuchar Buddha just closing message he was aware of the Sanders position in this state and he was taking on Sanders specifically on the raising of middle class taxes to help pay his medicare for all plan. which you know footage doesn't support Porto? He was trying to draw that contrast he also was saying. You know it can't just be revolution versus status quo. That's the argument. He's making he says most of us don't see ourselves in that picture of revolution versus status quo. He's claiming that's Bernie. Sanders is depicting as the choice. Here asper Amy Klobuchar. I will tell you it was probably the best I've ever seen her on the campaign trail. This is somebody who is a supremely confident in this moment for her. She felt good obviously about that Friday night. Debate performance you see in these polls over the weekend that she has got a bit of momentum. Now we'll see if that translates it's to actual votes tomorrow clearly. Being with her in Exeter New Hampshire. Today you could see a candidate. That was ultra comfortable in her skin.

An incredible jump all over the country. Frankly, we've removed thousands of MS thirteen and others out of our country. But if we had a wall, we wouldn't have that problem. It would be great. So we have a lot of alternatives. But I'm just honored that almost all of the Republicans voted for a Bill. Our Bill is the Bill that we were really focused on. But we had almost all of the Republicans. So the end result was fifty to forty seven. The Democrats lost one. Over to our side.

"Think we should reopen the government for three week period or month period and try to negotiate and what we should do is try to make some progress on some of the other issues that are involving immigration that was Rendell shut down twenty five days in and there are some signs both sides may be looking at a way out. I think it's going to be solved by the end of the week. But I do know this. I'm encouraged by Senator Graham, Senator Manchin, Senator coons, Senator Tillis, we also know that I believe you are out there understand that. If you are in the air traffic control, if you're in the TSA or in the FDA, if you're the border patrol you already feeling some of the effects of the shutdown. They're saying don't work, and we'll pay you a Benchley or the same work for free. Now, the doing all types of studies and doing all types of polls who presents losing on this post, so far when you come out through weeks ago and say, we'll have a shutdown, and I'll take ownership of it is going to be tough to lose. That ownership even though it's the Democrats that are not taking net legitimately negotiating. And that's what's hurting this entire process than negotiating so because of that we have a situation where one side is given in and I'm tired of giving in the other side said I don't need to give in. So I won't here's Lindsey Graham, and you could hear he sounds exasperated cut for. I'm just saying Mr President if you have to do an emergency declaration, which you may have to now would suggest that you give the congressman last chance, but he feels like. We're not there yet. Said okay. I trust her judgment on this. What's so depressing? Is it everybody's been for wall? Until Trump was for wall. Can I know the body has voted for barriers more money than we're asking for? So it's frustrating. So here it is Brit Hume weight in he says, there's a way out cotton. At least two parties seem to pay themselves into opposite corners of the same room and Campsie away out of it at the moment. The obvious way out of it would be for the Democrats to give some ground on funding, the border barrier wall, or whatever you choose to call it and the president to give some ground on immigration reforms that the Democrats want. I think he's shown some willingness to do that at particular times. So Britt Hume says he's seen this before right now it's up to the other side to give in because the president's already give it in substantially. So I told you bring you the latest on the William bar hearings. And we are. So he's making good progress entering consummate confidently confrontationally at some points. Especially with Senator Feinstein. Here's a little of Lindsey Graham, the chairman as well as the nominee attorney general sessions had a conflict because they worked on the Trump campaign. I'm not sure if all.

"You know to do something. I mean, he could do that one way or the other he's leading towards maybe declaring a national emergency. And then of course, it'll it'll like Senator Manchin said it will fight its way through the court system. I don't know if it'll make it worse or not. It's hard to say I also wanted to not Kate to Senator van Hollen Maryland. I think has kind of taken the bait. Maybe I'm the president. He's a democratic Senator in the sense that he said, well, he's going to try to see all legislation stop in the Senate until the temporary shutdown is undone and frankly by doing that, he's actually helping to create a bigger emergency in the sense of urgency in the sense. So I don't know, you know, there's a lot of moving pieces. Boy, no kidding. And when you were in congress, there were shut down, of course. But not your longest one. Right. I don't think the longest one you didn't have right. We had that. We we did. I don't know if we had the longest one, but we had the total shutdown. We didn't shut down Kate. Over one issue like crews wonder shutdown over health healthcare. The president shutdown partial over immigration, we shut it down. When Clinton was president. Based on the fact that we we need a balanced budget period. And of course, then both sides kind of blink. But we eventually did get five balanced budgets with Clinton and a Republican congress. Yeah. Wow. Just follow the bouncing ball. I suppose that's where we are. I think with all of that. It's it's it's crazy. So how about this? The president also going to visit the border on Thursday. So that's a big deal because he is going to meet us going to be photo ops. Obviously, I can't imagine nothing's going to be said there, and he's going to supposedly meet in the front lines of the whole humanitarian crisis. Do you think he'll talk to any of the people? You know, I doubt he would go, you know, and chance of, you know, talk to any crowds of people. But I'm sure that he's going to talk to the border patrol. And you know, he's going.

"Nancy Pelosi puts party and agenda over American values. This is what the Democrats do you cannot say they don't do this. Because this is exactly what they do. This is what they've been doing. And it's evidenced by exactly what we've seen in the last few days since Nancy Pelosi. Got the gavel on Thursday. But at least there's some decent Democrats left. Not many. You don't hear much about them? But they're still in congress. You just don't hear a lot about them. They don't get a lot of interviews. They don't get a lot of play. And I'll tell you why. Because they represent the Kennedy democrat, they represent the old Zane Miller democrat Zell Miller, I believe it was democrat. This is the Democrats that have been forgotten the old blue dogs. As they call them. And I want you to hear a clip from Senator Manchin democrat out of West Virginia responding to not only Nancy Pelosi's ridiculous response. But to freshman congresswoman Rashida Talib on the M F comment that she made MacKenzie if we could run that clip. So disgusting, and it's horrible Neil. No one should approve of that either. But you know. What can you say? I can't anyway condone that that's not how we act in west Virginia's not how we talked about public leaders. We might disagree with each other. But we try to get through it. We try to find a pathway forward to act like that just awful wanted to speak. Like that is even more deplorable. I'm so sorry. I would apologized to all Americans any setting congress person. There's five hundred and thirty five hundred senators informed, thirty-five congresspeople, we should have better manners. And I assure you. So the language was standing Senator the sentiment expressed white some in your party, maybe the extreme left. To look at taking a beach at action or more against the president too soon to discuss that or or what? It's crazy. I mean, here's the thing. They're going through an investigation let the investigation be completed every person in this country, and our judicial system every person is innocent until proven guilty and people want to start speculating just because you don't like somebody or they don't like their personality. You don't like the way they talk the way they act I can disagree with all those things. It's not the way I was raised with job. United States Senator to try to help my state the best I can west Virginia's expect me to do that. And also to make sure that my country is protected in strong with great opportunities. I'm gonna work with whoever is there, whoever the people from respected parts of this country send their and the president is my president. Did you hear that the president is his president? Now, when do we hear Democrats talk like that, you don't and I've got a lot of credit to Senator Manchin at a West Virginia because he is absolutely speaking with decency. What decency and this is what's lacking in American politics today? Hypocrisy power far less globalist agendas. What we're going to be dealing with friends from the one hundred sixteenth congress specifically the house. This is the deal. Look, I mean, come on you even have Nancy Pelosi stating that her powers. Are equal to the president of the United States. I mean, the ridiculousness of that this is why she was in such a hurry to get the gavel. This is why she marched up all the children there and surrounded herself. And you saw her comments. I mean, she's not qualified anymore. I don't think Nancy Pelosi was ever qualified to be speaker of the house. But my God how we have to look at it. Nancy Pelosi is third in line to the presidency in the event anything happens to pants and Trump. But this is what we have. We have a Nancy Pelosi speaker Pelosi who leaving that her powers are equal to the president of the United States. And then we have Acas CEO Cortes. Oh, yeah..

Wilson is one of those protesters. She's also a west Virginian and founder of the women's activist group. Boss babes in that state has Wilson. Thanks so much for being with us. Thanks for having me. And what's your immediate reaction to Senator Manchin Seyni intends to vote for judge capital? It's devastating. But it's honestly not super surprising. Yeah. Well, yeah. It's been indicated also I mean, Donald Trump got sixty eight point five percent of the presidential vote in West Virginia in two thousand sixteen can the argument be made that Senator Manchin is just reflecting the democratic will expressed by the people of West Virginia. I do think that he is the polls show that cabinet people mostly most people supported cavenaugh here. However, I think he did it entirely politically because he's up for reelection in thirty days. And he he has under fifty percent of the polls right now. So I think I think he did it to play the Republican base. Yeah. Well, but when you accuse a politician of being a politician. That's not much of a surprise is it. I mean, he's running for re election. Yeah. Of course. And I did do that to him yesterday on Thursday. We'll tell tell us about those meetings because you were you you met with him. I guess for two hours on Thursday. Right. Yeah. We get. So we had a group of women who sat in his office by day, and they were actually arrested hit about nine women arrested. They sat there for ten hours listening to him. They had a conference call Monday that didn't really go. Well, so Thursday, we had a group of about fifty go up to DC and we met with him. I separate occasion. The first one we had probably about twenty twenty women there and twenty women men and teenagers, and we told stories of sexual assault and asked him how he planned to vote, and he their way he he was very engaged in the conversation. He had to step out of the room. But did invite us back. You feel like you were heard and received with respect. Absolutely. Yeah. He was extremely gauged. He asked a lot of questions. I do believe that Joe Manchin cares for West Virginia. I just don't think that's reflected in this decision. Does your life continue if judge Kavanagh's confirmed or how does it continue? Our fight does continue. So as far as the Senate goes, we he kind of knew that he had us. He kind of had us because at the other options Patrick Morrissey, who's done terrible things for West Virginia. He's a big proponent of the opioid crisis. And so he kind of Georgia early. He doesn't believe in opioid addiction. He doesn't but he was a lobbyist for big pharmaceutical in West Virginia. He's our current attorney general, and he's just terrible. He's got Trump's endorsement, and he's just a bad guy. And I think he knows that this is all can't vote. This is all your opinion. Let me underscore. No, this is my opinion. Yes. Of course. So yeah. I think he believes that that he's still gonna have the democrat though. And that he wants to get the Republicans as well. Well, it does continue. Yeah. So we're working on. We're working statewide to change things. We've got a constitutional amendment on the ballot to ban abortion, and we all have to get out and vote against that which we are doing. Well, it it. It sounds as if you have accepted Senator mansions vote for what it is and still support him on a great many issues, and I got to tell you. This sounds very civilized and democratic to me. I'm trying to play the long game. I reluctantly as support him. Because I think the I think Marci's worst choice manage industrial support us on the ACA tax reform so badly we still have to go with them.

I the Senate has voted to advance his nomination they voted to cut off. That's the cloture vote. They voted fifty one to forty nine for cloture. That means there will be one final thirty hour period for debate. Then they will have the final confirmation vote later today. Susan Collins Republican of Maine says that she will announce how she intends to vote when confirmation cubs up for that final vote. This is significant Alaska's Republican Lisa Murkowski voted against advancing this she voted. No on the cloture motion. And we still. I have no idea how Republican or Republican Senator flake will vote. He was the one that got the supplemental investigation kicked off. So he did vote. Yes. To move forward to the final vote that doesn't mean he's a definite. Yes. For the final vote. And then also we had the democratic Senator Manchin. Yes. You go to the final vote, but that doesn't necessarily mean that that's his final vote here. Also is another interesting aspect Montana Republican Steve Daines is going to go to his daughter's wedding tomorrow. He is taking her down the aisle in Montana. But he says he has personally assured everyone he will come right back on a jet to take part in the vote, and he will be voting. Yes. For judge cavenaugh, and they can leave the vote open as what I was about to ask. I don't know. They don't know for sure what time the votes going to take place. And so if he's not there, they can say will hold it until we hear from exactly yes. They will hold it open. Is there a time limit on that it's up to Mitch McConnell? And is it for anybody? Like, if you know somebody says, well, I want to I don't want to vote like Cory Booker. He comes to my guess. Vote today. They have to have a valid excuse. Like, you know, what my daughter's getting married I've got to walk her down the aisle, it's up to Mitch McConnell. So it's your you can see how that would play out point. Where McConnell would say that's enough get in here and vote or it's all over. Not a magic. Yes. Exactly here are the numbers. Five one two eight three six zero five ninety the protesters are still out in force.

Kevin off he becomes that can't just say hey I'm just as Cavanaugh I'm the abortion, and social Justice that's come here to overturn everything and make it. Conservative doesn't work that way But the, fight is on and the dams are being what the dams are being just like when the Republicans ran the situation they were being the way, that they had, to be to make sure they, appeased their base the delay game.

"To the rule trump likes to talk to likes to engage and certainly whether it's a bad press or good press he wants to talk about it with members and certainly mostly republicans he has a bit of a friendship with senator manchin mentioned has been at the white house trump is going to look like he's going to campaign against mansion in west virginia where trump is very popular but i found interesting 'cause grassi's in the middle of all these fights he's he's making recommendations on muller he's expressing some major concern about his trade policy's not getting very far on on either one but grassy would be one that that i figured that trump would talk to a fair amount twice a month that's that's a decent amount the senator really has been working the trade issue pretty hard it sounded like from his descriptions for quite a long time so the influence i mean th the influence of state senators where the president is popular on the trade policy and your observations about where that's all going well i think we could soon see an effort to check the president's us if a particular type of tariff nunez to thirty two that's the law oh yeah that that applies to national security related tariffs on we had a big standoff quite recently in the senate over whether there would be an actual vote and i think republicans stepped back from that brink only because they wanted to discuss a consensus position on what to do now the china tariffs we discuss china abate are totally separate so i think there's actually fairly strong support within the gop four that move well we're out of time but lots to unpack their thanks so much for your questions this week for senator grassley appreciate your effort being here thanks thank you on this week's episode of c span's the weekly podcast the presidential pardon with georgetown law professor susan low bloch how do presence decide who gets pardon.

"In west virginia and they major race having the democrats try to influence the republican primary mature also have the candidates all up on air to voters are getting lots of information what we didn't break down is you know are are they leaning one while they may be undecided are they leaning towards the candidate we didn't add those numbers to to the discussion but certainly those are a factor while it's certainly we we still contend and we are very pleased with the firm we teamed up with adam geller who did president trump's calling some of president trump's polling and my being a west virginia native eastern panhandle and having done a few races in west virginia though i always joke with people hoppy i was in west virginia as a republican when we weren't waiting so myrlie know how to win races we just hadn't yet luckily though republicans are winning now over there and at home so we feel good about our numbers and let me add we're talking about the primary but the poll also comes out with research that shows that senator manchin is very vulnerable to reelection and we contend to go pack that it would be a unfortunate year if republicans don't gain seats in the us senate and for us to gain seats in the us senate the path has to go through west virginia there are nine republicans nine democrats running for reelection in the us senate who are in states that president trump won and joe manchin said at the top with president trump easily carrying west virginia and if joe mansion where to be defeated at it suggest we have a good path to picking up seats in indiana and montana and missouri and all of a sudden now republicans are are gaining seats in the us senate with his chairman of go pack and you're right this clearly mansion is vulnerable and some of the big organizations think cook and maybe.

"Well what it means is that my wages are going to be lower my cost of borrowing for anything from a home to a car loan is going to be higher and maybe most terrifying the entitlement programs that i hope to count on aren't going to be around at the same form social security will only be able to pay seventy five percent of the benefit that is promised for medicare similar situation and until we do something unless we do something soon that's gonna mean a huge implicit tax on younger and future generations gold is with the senior vice president head of policy of the committee for responsible federal budget mark also included so much new debt and this new spending on could so much new debt but we could start with the small stuff in our work our way to the bigger stuff this is still a solvable problem if the parties come together and listen to the fiscal hawks in the room that are telling us we actually have to get our finances in order for you just said though if the parties come together i i don't know i mean i don't know if anybody's willing to share the pain because that's what you would have to do when each side is constantly looking for leverage on the other side you know i think it's gonna be a tough list to get the parties to come together but for example your own senator senator manchin had a plan that still would have lowered the corporate rate that's still would have had a lot of the reforms in this tax bill but also would have cut enough tax breaks to make the difference and he was willing to reach across the aisle and i think there are other members of both the house and the senate like that that are willing to work together but voters need to.
