The 2020 Battleground States: Updates on the Swing Voters
"To start this week by talking about the election, which is less than 50 days away. Throughout the fall, ABC News is working with the Washington Post on polling in a Siri's of in depth battleground states, the first of which was released this week. ABC is Katherine Folders has more on the findings, according to a pair of new ABC News Washington Post holes. It's a close race in the battleground state of Wisconsin, while former vice President Joe Biden has a substantial lead in Minnesota. Heading into the final seven weeks of the presidential campaign, Biden has 52% among likely voters in Wisconsin, with 46% for president Trump in Minnesota, suburban residents and independence are boosting bite into a substantial lead. 57 to 41% results are very similar Among the broader pool of registered voters with Biden Trump at 50 46% in Wisconsin and 57 40% in Minnesota. Views on the economy in the Corona virus to find the race and turnout is a wildcard, as is the case nationally, Trump benefits from much greater enthusiasm among his supporters, and they're far more apt to plan to vote on election day that makes fighting ability to mobilize early and absentee voting central to the outcome. ETA, Another battleground state is causing concern for the Biden campaign. Campaigning, journalist Armando Garcia tells us Biden is struggling to reach Latino voters back in July. A Quinnipiac poll had Biden with a 17 point lead over the president among this demographic in Florida last week and NBC Marist poll showed by trailing the president. 46 to 50%. Now, When you look at 2016 Clinton vested Trump among Latinos in Florida, 62 to 35%. This is a major cause for concern among some Latino advocates. Why Because in less than two weeks, eligible voters will be receiving their mail in ballots in Florida. And they say that the time to court these voters is now or never. Latinos are historically under pulled an underreported in surveys of voting trends and even demographic estimates. However, we know that there are about 3.1 million eligible Latino voters in Florida. That's a lot of people, especially in a state that is historically one by very thin margins. Clinton lost the state to trump by a little over 1%, meaning that every single vote counts and we have to remember. Latinos are projected to be the largest group of nonwhite eligible voters in 2020, and they are not a monolith. They hail from dozens of countries. Different backgrounds, political experiences that shape the way they look at candidates. Now,

Speak now, or forever hold your peace
"Dear sugars my boyfriend and I had our first baby last month, and now I'm fortunate enough to be a stay at home mom to are beautiful seven week old boy since getting pregnant we've discussed getting married and we decided we should get engaged a few days ago I came across a ring sized box. My boyfriend was obviously planning on giving me. It had the name of a company on it and I immediately googled it out of curiosity. I was taken aback when I found this company sells cubic zirconiums, rings that cost about twenty dollars. So I did something that I now regret I peeked inside the box. It was an engagement and wedding ring set that I saw on the website cost twenty dollars and ninety nine cents. I'm both upset and baffled by this because my boyfriend is not one to be cheap when it comes to jewelry. I showed him a ring that I wanted, which costs around three hundred dollars I thought that was fairly inexpensive for an engagement ring. So, here's my question. Do I say something to him about it when he gives it to me? I'm truly hurt that he would be so cheap when it comes to such an important moment. Then again I don't want to be shallow and I'm incredibly grateful for our life together and I'm lucky to have such a great partner. The ring itself is fine and actually pretty, but it's not really what I wanted signed speak now or forever hold my peace. Fired up about this ticket thing. Okay and I got a feeling we're headed towards the trouble here with her answers I'm just a the the the boom will be lowered by all chair. Okay. I'll Cherono dum boom we'll be lowered by a remarkably useful looking Cheryl. Okay. So this is a little bit complicated because we don't know your economic circumstances it sounds to me speak now like you are a stay at home mom. Which means there's one income you decide to make this long good promise. But when you say that your boyfriend by nature your soon to be fiancee is not cheap about jewelry I. Assume that means that character logically, he understands that it's important and this is an important moment. So I am genuinely baffled along with you as to why he would give you a twenty dollar ring rather than three hundred dollar ring which sounds. For many people like well for a big occasion, that's a very reasonable amount of money to spend on an engagement ring but I don't know your circumstances and I don't know your your fiance's if he's your fiance by this I don't know his anxieties about caring for this new baby. What is clear as he isn't hiding it from you, he isn't trying to pass off this cubic zirconiums as a nd he's quite open. About it I think you have to bring it up with him because you're GonNa have that ring on your finger hopefully until death do you part? So it feels like to fundamental a nagging doubt to ignore. But I I'm of the mind just because of my orientation on things that it's about the commitment that he's making to you and how loving and supportive and connected he is to you not about a piece of jewelry. Lower the boom speak now or forever hold your peace. You're not being cheap or shallow by telling him that this that he made a mistake. I understand everything Steve is saying about your economic realities it sounds to me I mean, first of all, she knows their realities and she isn't saying, well, I told him that I loved the three hundred dollar ring. But I knew that we really couldn't afford it because times are tough. Okay. She didn't say that to us. She said that by way of saying this. would be the reasonable ring for him to get for her for such an occasion. This is as you note, a ring that she's going to be wearing for the rest of her life, and so you know what? I'm sad for you about is, of course, we want our engagements to be fairytale and we want them to line up with the joy in the happiness and. You know of the relationships we have with our partners but sometimes in the course of those big moments, even people who are glorious and lovely inconsiderate and generous and wonderful, and all these other ways botched the job and I think that this is what happened with your boyfriend speak now and I don't think that he meant to hurt your feelings or make you feel. Like you weren't valuable to him. But I do think that he was wrong to give you a ring, the costs less than twenty one dollars I do think that this was a major fumble that you will laugh about in years to come but only if you can fix it okay, I would sit down and say I was so touched that you gave me this ring. But this ring is not what I had in mind and it's really important to me that I looked down at my hand for all the rest of my life and feel nothing but love and joy and gratitude for the bond that we have and this ring makes me feel bad and yes, it is because it only costs twenty dollars ninety nine cents you

It would drain more city resource is Cape Phase, Christina Honest that reports San Francisco Mayor London Breed says she plans to spend $446 million to address the Corona virus pandemic this year through June 2021.

It includes $16.5 million in funding for communications and operations. 185 million for our health response, 62 million for food distributions and programs that are pit stops. 183 million for housing and shelter programs.

"Harry styles scores his first number one on the hot one, hundred as his single. Server searches from number seven to number one out as the hot one hundred is comprised of airplay sales and streaming data. Let's take a closer look at the songs gains in those respective areas. It climbs three two on the all format radio songs chart with eight percent gain in audience. It flies nine to one on the digital song sales chart with a six hundred and fourteen percent gain to sixty three, thousand copies sold, and it rises twenty nine to eighteen on the streaming songs chart with a one percent gain to fourteen point two million streams there was a bevy of promotion last week that kicked into high gear in support of the single I think fans and probably Harry's label knew that this was their chance probably to get to the song number, one Harry released three physical. Singles and his web store each of them came with a digital download of the song and that counted towards sales for the week his single with sale price for sixty nine cents at all major retailers, and there was even a couple of new videos for the song that were released as well. A one I think was like like a tour visual, which I think people thought would be like the visual that would have been behind him if he were on tour. And there was I, think I wanNA say like a behind the scenes video to there is clearly a whole heck of a lot of promotion around the song last week. Yeah of lot going in because as you said, this was kind of the. Time to strike while the iron is hot. There's so much of the mental behind the song Harry of course, is the second member of one direction till end a number one on the hot one, hundred following Zane with pillow talk back in twenty sixteen. So Keith let's take a minute and talk about how watermelon sugar became his first number one single. Besides besides obviously, the things that we just laid out in terms of the airplay streams in in sales obviously because that was a huge driver last week, but it couldn't have got to number one without sort of hit in the first place is kind of overseeing sorry to. Interrupt. You know it's I. I was looking up this morning when this song actually came out Harry styles debuted watermelon sugar on Saturday night live on November sixteenth. Twenty. Nineteen. To give some perspective of what was going on. It it was released to the same weekend as the Charlie's angels. reboot. that. Feels like a million years ago. You look at this as an airplay hit. First of all, adore you which peaked at number six on hot one hundred still in the top twenty by the way. It seems to me that a door you really kind of opened the door for Harry at pop. Radio. Way And following a door you and success which hit number two on the radio songs chart legacy number six in the high one hundred. Sugar which had been around a while just started surging. As the latest single from fine. Line. Sugar debuted on the radio songs chart in mid June and then has jumped all the way to number two this week. And then as you know, this is the third week in a row that both watermelon sugar and adore you are in the top five at Rio songs. And I you know I think what we're saying is I think what we're saying Jason is that Harry Styles is incredibly popular on the radio this entire year which. Is Not entirely expected, but no a pleasant surprise. It's awesome. These songs have been huge on pop radio and I just anecdotally I hear them all the time and I have for months especially adore you and now more. So watermelon sugar anyway key. Yeah I've been writing a lot about song of the summer. We talked about it a lot. and. I think that's part of the reason why watermelon sugar has done so well, is that the timing really worked out they released the video in May and it's just become this big summer song by the way climbs thirteen to eight on the latest songs in the summer. Chart. It's making a last minute run for the crown. But I I mean two babies Rockstar has been number one for seven weeks. So I that seems unlikely to me seems unlikely. But yeah, it does seem like I mean especially when you pair it with the video, which is you know very bitchy and summary and it's breaking at just the right time to it's just firing on all cylinders seems like. Yeah and then meanwhile you have this artists in the middle of this storm that is you know a has. A total one, hundred percent approval rating just in terms of how adored he is no pun intended. He's obviously like has this hard to define cool factor. You know he's basically been letting the music do the talking, and now this is another huge accomplishment for

California went from bending the curve to a major coronavirus surge. What happened?
"New Tonight for the fourth time in one week. Los Angeles County is breaking its own record for the number of people that are in the hospital with corona virus, which also means. California is inching closer to surpassing. New, York's record of having the most cases in the country. What went so wrong in California Sarah Gardner is out front. When you're sleeping on your belly. The staff at this California. Hospital is nearing exhaustion every minute I think about covid nineteen, a video diary from inside Eisenhower, health, Rancho Mirage nurse Catherine Davis says she's used to seeing one death a year in her unit. With seven hundred Cova patients treated here so far she's now seeing forty deaths. We would ensure that a patient did not die alone. So you know, we would take turns spending time with them and holding their hand and talking to them, doctors knew they had the beds to treat the surge, but not the staff when we heard that the next wave of relief might come in and two weeks three weeks four weeks. You know that's when things become a little bit desperate. They asked the federal government for help, and it arrived an airforce medical team of about twenty help shoulder the unending load. The stress here repeated all over California. So how did we get here? The state was the first to announce a stay at home order that was march nineteenth. This is a moment we need to make tough decisions. Seven weeks later, the governor reopened the state on. On May ain't. You have bent the curve, but that wasn't to be by early June. The seven day average for new daily coronavirus cases was more than twenty, six hundred by July, Eleventh at more than ninety, four, hundred, more than two hundred fifty percent, increase and rewarding. You are renowned epidemiologist. What went wrong? In California we opened up too soon. We didn't have the virus totally under control, experts agree. Residents and local governments got complacent. Back on the field now case in point, three suburban counties near La all lifted their mask requirements under heavy pressure from angry residents. None of this is based on science, but rather an affair is political agenda to silence, the people and Strip freedoms from hardworking Americans now. hard-working Americans. All three counties are seeing Cova D- Surge And Hospital? Beds are filling out and that's frightening 'cause. Where do we go from? There are patients telling you healthy might have gotten it. Yes, well, some of them are partners. Some of them have. Gone Out and gone to parties, no masks but Los Angeles County did and still does have strict mask, requirements, tickets, or even being issued. If you don't comply and yet, it's still the epicenter of the California surge. How much worse does it have to get in Los Angeles? Before you feel compelled to issue another stay at home order well I think we're on the brink of that. People are not following the rules or not wearing masks or not social distancing among them. California's forty and under who make up more than half of the state's new cases. Also hard hit the Latino community which makes up a third of the state's population, but more than half of Cova infections. Sometimes it's mom and dad's work experience that has brought them into contact with it, and then it goes through the whole family. Experts say fixing all this comes only one way you have to just shut down for now. I think they'd is our only way out. And that is really depressing for almost anyone everyone worrying about the economy coming back, but as a couple of people told us you have to have a healthy society to have a healthy economy and one of the big issues is testing used to take a couple of days now you can take up to a week just to get an appointment when you get your results back as a whole different problem
Thailand reports 1 new coronavirus case, no new deaths
"Thailand has a population of seventy million yet. The country has recorded fewer than three thousand, two hundred fifty cases and fifty eight deaths, as of Thursday there had been no cases of transmission for about seven weeks. So how and why has it been sped the full devastation of covid nineteen well to tell us more I'm joined by Monaco's Bank correspondent. gwen were Robinson welcome back as ever. GWENT good to have you on monocle twenty four, so this seems to have been a country sped. Well I mean this is a very good question and it's obsessing. People particularly in this region, it should be said though that. Countries have also done like surprisingly well, including the and Mar Laos Cambodia these are all countries with very very fred the health system, so it's just as well. There were sped. And they were very slow some of them to actually look down, and in fact in the beginning some of the leader, for example in Cambodia was scoffing a little bit like Donald Trump at at the. It, so they were very slow to act and I like a lot of people, although experts will not say it There's very strong theories that he didn't humidity. Do have something to do with it. Clearly Kobe likes cold climates, and does not like warm, but humid climates. You can see in the Middle East in hot areas. They've succumbed quite badly, but that's very dry, so I think there's a theory there, but of course in Thailand with a a sort of. Not exactly a military government, but a government stuff full of former military officers they take great pride in their efficiency under claiming credit because of their excessive caution and This is now a real point of debate about how much it's Thailand prepared to kill it to coney for an obsession which has become an obsession with zero infections, and you know they are understandably proud that there's not been any local transmission for nearly seven weeks, but you can see. The fallout has been immense and the projections for unemployment for example. Example horrendous in fact, even the government's open economic forecasting think tank 'cause predicted eight point four million jobless people as a result of the code lockdown by the end of this year and an economic contraction of eight percent, which is huge, so I think you know, there are some cost-benefit these that really need to be done here, but as a as some people may be with. There's a lot of paranoia about meeting foreigners back into Thailand now. Indeed I mean we've seen some internal disputes within the authorities in Thailand. Resignations of economic ministers there's. Is there a sense that Thailand is very good at coping with stopping the spread of a pandemic, but has rather miss rather underestimated the huge economic damage that this could do. Well, I think you nailed it. With that point, that's right. It's a it's a trade off, and but interestingly the surveys I mean I don't know where the hell they're interviewing these people but the government released a survey last night, claiming of interviewed more than sixteen, hundred or around sixteen hundred ties throughout the country, showing that ninety eight percent of them feel that it is not yet time to let foreign of back in meanwhile, of course, you've got a tourism industry in freefall. Thailand is nearly twenty percent dependent for GDP on tourism and basically close to zero. Zero now they had forty million visitors last year and I think it sort of town around I. Don't know I mean. Nobody's getting in a very few foreigners or allowed him. Of course we enforcing the paranoia. I should've mentioned with the disclosure last week about the sort of very strange visit by an Egyptian military delegation, but promptly landed and took itself off for Jolie to the seaside resort of Rayon and turned out that one or gypsum military officer with infected with Kobe and tracking his movements seems like he went every. Shopping malls entertainment complex. The hotel restaurant. So the government has now tested about six thousand five hundred people in that Rayong area. It's all going into lockdown Ola hotel. The under strict guidelines and shopping malls are closed schools, and that has now spread to the resort area. Poppy are as well and these places that would just reopening after lockdown was lifted and struggling to basically domestic tourists, and now you know they've been set back, but you know if. If polls are believed to can be believed. I, you know it seems that you know. A lot of tides feel that you know they should still be cautious and that would imply that they're supporting the government. Meanwhile as you said, there's a lot of political turmoil and four key economic ministers resigned last week on group, and of course they were ousted following an internal reshuffle of the ruling party leadership and that SORTA quite. I'm not sure they're taking a rap for poor economic management. It's really more I think internal politics, but definitely the new team has a huge job ahead, and interestingly they haven't been very quick to announce the new team. Because apparently they're having a lot of cody getting very credible people to fill those shoes because It's going to be a very tough jaw. Publi. Couldn't Robinson in Bangkok?

Anyway, here I go I love the first half of the season. Focus more on the other Pearson's. I eat Toby Beth and Miguel allowing them to have a bit more depth and shine this season was a nicer prize. Like you I have grown to like Toby more and more each season. But this season he is really had my heart. I was scared for him when he decided to go up his mess, but I was really happy that case stepped up and for once didn't make it about her. But really was there for Toby and getting him back to himself. Yes. K I'm now root for her. Finally. Yeah. It took them three sees it. But you know, what we got here together. My girl Beth she really is going through it. And I really mean random to see that she has always let random do whatever he wants even though he hasn't. She hasn't agree but supported him. Anyway, Rando is all over the place this season. And like you I'm not here for any other his priorities out of whack, and I think all his against of trying to save everyone. But his wife, and this is wearing on Beth. She means him, and he gives her a pity job on his failing campaign, then breaks the one promise he may her. I just can't take him not seeing his false in this situation. I'm pretty disappointed, but in the flat for my friend pointed out that Randall was not wearing his wedding band. And Beth looks great. The kind of great you look when you get that dead way. Offer you any right, anyway, I hope they're able to fix this riff. Hashtag team. Yes. Asked them that shit on Twitter, and I die.

Again. It was nice to see him with the kid with his kids always refreshing to see him ride for Becca so hard. Do we recall when he checked Kevin when he moved in from rehab? Yup. I remember that I actually liked that his son is a deck. But I guess he never processed hurt. His parents divorce. I now believe Miguel had nothing to do with Jaksa. I mean. Okay. I'm maleta. Right. Right. I'm let it go. I could keep going, but I'm gonna stop. Okay. This is already to LA. But one more thing I'll stay in real hard for Kevin. He is my favorite Pearson. After Jack, of course. Various, right. Okay. Because I was like sit here quietly. Like, I'm glad there's no cameras on me because he is Heike my mid key my favorite Pearson right now. Listen, this is a very small club. Okay. Don't Kansas people listening. Okay. Maybe Randall will make a comeback Sunday. But. Kevin. He was you know, what it is. It's like in sports when you like a player when I get into whatever the sport is me and me me and bossy solid coming away. We were like, okay, let's go. He's special and everybody's I know he's not overrated. And now look at him shining. I'm in. Way it'd be most emotional growth out of all of them. Right. Yeah.

The tail on the donkey is the game at the Pierre since traditionally play at the big three birthday parties. It was mentioned during episode during the episode where the triplets decided to have separate parties. I'm wondering if the family has gathering to celebrate the big three's and Jack's birthday with Rebecca we know that the game hasn't been featured in the big three's adult birthday. So I wonder if future Rebecca has mentioned or Alzheimer's or losing her present-day marines or having trouble keeping track of time. That could also explain why test is hesitant to see her because we're bekker's cognitive decline. It might also explain why Toby is hesitant to go. See Rebecca's fans. She might not remember him.

Rando his dad Jack went to see the Washington Monument when it when he went to Howard for visiting and though they have a conversation about. Basically, Randall's singular focus and his ability to sometimes lose his his place. And right. This to me. I hate to say this to me this is terrible writing because he was seventeen but he was like directly talking about what was happening on the show when he's like forty or wherever it just felt so it felt so on the knows that it was it was weird. He's like, but what if I ever give focused on something too much, and it's hard to my family. And then I was like come on. It is of course, Jack is lying. No seventeen year old ever takes about that or whatever. But my whole time was just I that's ridiculous day that what happened that way, you know, that the conversation would be like literally would if you know I want to run for political office in Philly, but my family's living in New Jersey.

He's like Kay is normally the one in these out of fucking work, and they're like once every like hers lot less frequent. But once every once in a while they do episode where it's like, but if it wasn't for Kate, you know, like test test would have freaked out. We don't know like thank God Kate was there and Toby Toby could've killed herself. I we'll who knows what will happen, but Kate fee came through, and they do it with all of them, you know, like a random same thing. Whereas like every once in a while like up but thank God. I rented was there to talk to Beth because I was getting bad. You know? And the thing for me killing me is stretching these moments now where it's becoming like these last ditch saves as opposed to like it used to fill more like genuine relationships. Now, if it was like TV show relationships where you just fuck. Fuck. Fuck fuck up for fifty minutes. And then you end the episode with them doing the one thing that was okay. And you're like, oh, okay. Well, I guess that's love they fixed it, and I don't know. Maybe it's the wave you relations in general. I just hate that. And I feel like the show wasn't that before. Yeah. Now that that's the problem. I had with this episode. I don't know whether they thought that they were being clever by doing the seven weeks thing.

Like, it just didn't seem like there's no questioning of Jack. There was no anything. Yeah. It was weird. 'cause like he goes like, why would why would you lied to us or not told us, and then it's gone out of his head right away. Like, I'm sure it was a good reason. You know? Yes. Jank it'll what can possibly be right. Well, yes, he's like. Well, what are we going to do is always like, oh, wait, I can get us. I know congressman, and he's like, you know, she li-. Yeah. And I say first of all look a her. That woman is definitely some brokenhearted congressmens aches, okay? Just a congressman. Okay. Might be some senators. I've in there, you know, some athletes she broke few hearts. Okay. But now he was like. Yeah. How they go to New York. I think it was I wanna say this felt like they went to New York, and they had the congressman do come out to lights with them and the congress. Colorado now, guys. Sorry about that. He's like that old thing. So the congressman comes the lunch with them at a diner or something. And the thing is I don't know what he wrote him to get him to come out or whatever it sounded. It must've been Vegas. Fuck though. Because he looked super surprising having their. Yeah. Who's white man? And she's like this is congressman solo this is Kevin. And he's in Idaho. My God, I forgot to mention and this really is row to the back of my head when they got to the VA like the first thing having said to the woman was like yet, and then we just moved into gather. So.

I thought about it. But I was getting so many good vibes for her of 'em by good. I mean quality not not good as they were positive, but I was getting such good acting vives of her like body language and her kind of awkward uncomfortableness with his like telling everybody that business shit where I was like, oh, Kevin doesn't realize. But this she's not necessarily with this out fast as moving. Yeah. Or or just the scope of it, right? 'cause I she was so visibly uncomfortable. So many times and I felt for Kevin because Kevin is excitable light. Yeah. I think people give Randall pass for being as gung ho as he is. But Kevin is equally that in just a very different way. And I guess in a way that makes it because it's also kind of immature whereas Randall Spain is like he's super mature. And that's his thing. But like they're equally excitable in that way. So I felt for him. I all my God. You're so excited. That's so cute. But you're not paying attention to the fact that that the Zoe there's something going on with Zoe. You're not really seeing. Yeah. He is a later episode. Rhino represents the fact that he's like, very Ican become singularly focused. Kevin can do that as well.

Episode. Okay. I'm going to try I'm going to try and stick with this. 'cause usually I'll say it. And then during the course of the conversation you'll start making some points. And then I start to flip a little bit. Because I didn't see it from that perspective. But I'm sticking with this. This was the worst episode of this show ever in three seasons or for three seasons. I hated this episode. A hated it. You came out with the hot fire at the and I'm sticking with don't care. What you say? I hated as episode. I wasn't ready. Okay. I'm gonna be honest job. I was not ready for bossy to be on. This an episode title was the last seven weeks. As far as what I thought about the episode in the words of Damon wayans, a David Alexandria on his men on film hate it. I was out of fan of some of the resolutions to the big ads like cliffhangers from last year. And I was lucky disappointed in some of my favorite Pearson's and. It hurt me say that. And it just felt if not like a lesser show. Like, this is what another show that thought? They were this as we do. Yeah. This is what a million little pieces would do. This is what new Amsterdam would do. This is not this is not this is caliber of writing of acting storyline. Nothing. Yeah. So I don't know it just some of the flips in this episode man, I was looking at my TV like right in front of us really is our this is our resolving these conflicts because this is not that other thing was not just easily forgivable. So. All right. We'll get into it. As always I'll try to break it down by. Yeah. Okay. I finally got the ratings come up seven point seven four million which is down from the season finale and actually kinda pretty much down from the host. He's in. But maybe it's just because it's just now coming back and January. So maybe it stars that way..
