It doesn't feel like he's going to if he does it'll be a very big deal But here it does feel like that. The African American vote is not still skeptical. And you know so we want here by forty seven points and it. Was you know sometimes when you went by that big? You're like well. How does that mean anything? Because we didn't have to fight for nearly that you're then you're then you're wondering if that was just an aberration but saw on.

As it is now Super Tuesday state touchdown Memphis and we were in a really great mood and we should of the peabody hotel and normally hillary will go in through the back entrance right Peabody hotels not set up that way and we walked into the lobby and there were about four hundred young white men in that hotel lobby There were there for this thing called the cotton gin which is like a farm expo beating that meets their every year and they were all and they're like they're you know they're both a sale to refresh member there. And they're like the trucker heads the sleeveless Fez and plaid shirts and they search any locker up and it was just this got huge win and then you walk into bat and it was like with the Democratic primary sorta shielded from seeing a lot of Republican voters and it was really a nerve and then they saw Houma and they're screaming.

President Obama launched his reelection bid today officially announce his running president kicked off his twenty twelve reelection run the Atlantic reports that Bernie Sanders told fellow. Senators he take on. Obama and Obama's team was quote absolutely panicked Obama's so I wrote an article that came out last week that was about Bernie Sanders and his nose and around a primary challenge. Brock Obama which put me in a spot that I don't really love to be in. Which is that it got turned into a campaign commercial by. Joe Biden was should be noted a commercial that he did not have the money to put on the air but that went around on the Internet. What was interesting to me about? This was that it reflects how the views of Obama have changed over the years. Twenty four team when I was covering him then in the midterms nobody even wanted him around to any democratic race. Anywhere a air rights. I want I want to go through this transition with you because you lived at in different circumstances you were in the White House in two thousand fourteen then and then in twenty sixteen he was more popular by then but still not the same. You were on the Clinton campaign then and now by twenty twenty. He has achieved this status that Last year I wrote something that he is more popular than Jesus in the Democratic Party and I used his popularity ratings and the level in pupils of committed Christian Democrats and he is literally more popular than Jesus in the Democratic Party. And so what you see. Is every candidate saying how wonderful he is many of them using him in ads. Mike Bloomberg Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Now has a shot of him and add. It's anybody who can get anything. And of course Joe Biden Spending a Lotta time. Is it from your experience over these years. Weird to see this happen to Barack Obama. It's not because I know that it's it's the sort of the life cycle of what happens to an American president. They're not popular in mid terms. That's just that is universal. The primary thing about primary Barack Obama Consumer Small Issue. It is not a smallish. South Carolina is a video for black voters that they you know if they weren't sure of what to make a sanders. They recognize a politician deciding that why politician probably isn't quite up to the job wasn't quite doing it as well as he should. And I think that actually you know you see the Biden Campaign. I mean yeah. They didn't have on Money. Put by that ad but they talk about it all the time and by and talks about it. Not He's not the most disciplined messenger ever but he definitely says that every place goes in South Carolina. It was not Written for his purposes or any other purposes other than. It's what happened and it struck me because because remember it not. I don't. I don't remember specifics. I do remember in twelve being nervous. Like plus that Jamesy Anna was the campaign manager at the time. Being nervous about like just it means you know you don't survive those those. It's this early warning sign of a tough reelect and that summer of two thousand eleven when this was happening in sanders popping. Up in New Hampshire. It was making a lot of people on the Obama campaign. Really really uncomfortable. Alabama Steph. Don't like to be uncomfortable like everything to be smooth. It's been a weird race in a lot of ways because you see the Democratic Party changing in the Obama part of it is reflective of that to me. You had a line in the Washington Post a couple of weeks ago. That that the obsession with concocting a Frankenstein confounded us all a good quote. So why don't you explain your member? So that particularly I felt this really intensely in Iowa New Hampshire and Iowa. Voters just felt paralyzed. When I talked this is why turn out was low. And what was because he was so scared of making the wrong choice about the person who is best able to beat trump that they didn't know they didn't know what to do. You talk to people on Sunday. Who are going to caucus tomorrow night. But I don't know how I'm going to caucus for an endless people just didn't show up and you know I think to sanders. Credit Bernie beats trump is like what their hashtag and they talk about that but that is not the motivating factor for sanders supporters burners. They are for Bernie and Bernie has Bernie describes America as their expanded that reflects their experience and he has dramatic big proposals. That are going.

"Storming after victory in South Carolina decimated. That's what happened. Just don't see a path for Bernie Sanders. I really don't welcome to the ticket. For years ago the South Carolina primary was a turning point for the Democratic nomination. Bernie Sanders put up unexpectedly. Strong challenge to Hillary Clinton the first few stance but his blowout loss with the beginning of he'd hold on through the end of the primaries but South Carolina showed he couldn't break through to a big section of the party. South Carolina was also a turning point in two thousand eight. Barack Obama was the unexpected challenger that year and after his win Iowa voters saw the chance to elect the nation's first black president and after polls had initially showed Clinton doing well stable Bama a huge victory any went on to become the nominee. I Wonder Hampshire get the attention but South Carolina as being crucial for the last year.

"You'll get twenty percents off your first order. There's also a link in the episode description if you want to go. Click on that all right. Let's get back into the show anyway. Bernie Sanders. I know. I've said this before on the show but it's just I'm sorry if you have you have the front runner of the Democratic You know of the Democratic primaries saying this shit is just has to be has to be repeated because it's unbelievable and it really shows something about Bernie Sanders like Bernie. Sanders really did praise all of these brutal socialist leaders and he switched it. You know like he stopped doing that at a certain point and started just with the like now. No now I'm not talking about Venezuela. I'm not talking about Cuba. Not Talking about the Soviet Union not talking about Nicaragua. I'm talking about Denmark. You know and then like you went into which is talking about Sweden and Denmark. That's what we're talking about. Social Democracies even though he calls himself a socialist like there is and I know a lot of people just kind of all sounds the same but there is a real difference between a Social Democrat and democratic socialist. That's why like when when you talk to Real Democratic Socialists. Like we had been burgess on the show. They're not just talking about like Medicare for all or something like that. They're talking about either government. Seizing entire industry is or what they'll say is worker owned industries which in in other words making it illegal to have a fucking business making it illegal for you to run a business or own a business or start a business. That's this is like more real deal socialist stuff. The Social Democrats are talking about Sweden and Denmark. Like they're just like hey. We should have high taxes and a big safety net and then capitalism. You want own your own company. Go ahead but you're going to pay like seventy percent in taxes or whatever now that has shown problems and it's very flawed. It's why Denmark Sweden have rolled back a lot of those programs because it crushes the economy. But that's a very different thing than being democratic socialist but what Bernie. Sanders does is goes. Oh No I no I. I call myself a democratic socialist and I used to praise all of these authoritarian socialists. But I'm really talking about the social democracy is but I'm still gonNA call myself a democratic socialist. This is kind of weird thing where you're like. So what exactly is it that you believe like you're not really being clear on this for someone who always let me be clear being that clear and so then when this comes up it's interesting that and the thing that's interesting is that there was never a point where Bernie Sanders went like? Hey I was wrong to praise all of those authoritarian socialists. I mean he'll say I'm not for the authoritarian part he's like. I don't like that they did that. Which more or less to me translates to like. I think that the government should concentrate all of the power in a society. But I don't want them to be authoritarian about it. It's like you know I want. I want to create absolute power but don't want it to corrupt them like okay. That's a nice thought but you know and then every time you give someone absolute power. They're like oh the problem. There wasn't the power was the corruption. It's like yeah there's one leads to the other right. It's like saying like okay. I'm going to give this group of people the power to murder whoever they want to with impunity like you could just murder. Whoever you want to and you won't get in trouble for it at all. And then they go on a murdering spree. And you're like well. The problem is that they went on the murdering spray. And it's like well okay. I mean yes in some sense but the problem is also that you gave them the power to murder with impunity. It's probably not a good idea to do that. And that's why you see so many of these left-wing pieces were there like you know the problem. Venezuela isn't the socialism. It's the corruption. I think. Okay right is the problem. Isn't the socialism it's the misallocation of resources like right but one leads to the other every single time every single time so anyway the Bernie Sanders never really walked that back he just kind of moved on and then actually gets annoyed if anyone brings it up. It's like what a stupid question. I'm obviously not talking about authoritarianism. You know even though I did. Praise all these authoritarians but so this. This is the Cuba thing. And he's sticking to his guns on this he's sticking to his guns on well. Look you know. There's a lot of things that I don't like about Cuba. But they really great on education. They did really great on their literacy rate. And of course this is. This is the propaganda that Cubans have have put out there for decades and decades and decades. The idea that they they came in and literacy was very low and literacy was then increased Now let me say this. There probably is some truth to it now. The literacy rate being increased When I say probably because we don't really know for sure the thing about these closed societies is the information that's given to the world is not very easy to verify because they kind of let you into where they want to and close off other areas. And don't show you that so you don't know exactly but they brag that they have like basically one hundred percent literacy rate. I doubt that that's true. But that's what they say however does seem like there was some evidence that the literacy rate increased in Cuba but to praise their education. This is like this weird thing. And it's part of this twisted socialist ideology where you just really believe in a state And and in a state providing things for people and it I guess it just all depends on what your definition of education is like for me right and I think for Sane people everywhere if you are not allowed to think certain thoughts safe certain things read certain books. Then you're not there's nothing to say about your education that's not education that's indoctrination and that's exactly what it is in Cuba. They've you fucking like okay. So yes they did. Have this big literacy program right before. Fidel Castro had the revolution and right after he took over this big literacy program but it was explored expressly explicitly for political purposes. It was to indoctrinate people into the state religion. It was to make people fucking like the literacy program was all about you learning how to read. What your duties to the state were. So that's that's worthy of praising their education like I'm sorry if you can't criticize the government and you can't criticize or you can't read anything that criticizes the government Then that's indoctrination not education and someone praising that is creepy as shit all right. There's like an old Cuban saying that was something or the of the Cubans who fled. I guess but they said something like literacy went up but we weren't allowed to read something like that you know. Basically they taught people how to read. But you could only read the government propaganda so to say that in a country where it's an outright authoritarian country. There's no elections. There's no a freedom to descend nothing like that. The state runs every single school. The state runs every single newspaper. Every radio show all of these things and to praise them for the way. They've educated their people at something really sick about that. Like really fucking sick. You know it's like I don't know like if you kidnap someone and kept them in you know your basement and then taught them how to read to be kept in this basement every day and they'd be like well listen. He shouldn't have kidnapped them but he did. Teach them how to read. But like just to fuck and keep them prisoner and of course he's he's kept them in grinding poverty for the Since he was he's dead now but his brothers I guess doing it But anyway so just really really creepy stuff that Bernie. Sanders is out there saying that You know I don't know how effective this attack is. My guess is not that much but it's it's still pretty wild and his defense that well Obama said Nice stuff about them. It's like yeah. It was despicable when Obama. Said it too? So that's you know not not doing much for me all right. Let's let's play the nightclub area. Where COMES DOWN? To Donald Trump with his nostalgia for the Social Order of the nineteen fifties and Bernie Sanders with an astrologer for the revolutionary politics of the nineteen sixties. My Secretary of Education will be someone who has taught in public school. My Secretary of Education will the someone who believes in public education and my secretary of Education will believe that public dollars should stay in public schools. I come at this with a great deal of humility because we've had a lot of here so I mean I don't even know what to say about these two just completely empty platitudes. It's almost at least Bernie. Sanders thing is almost refreshing in contrast to that because even though it's bat shit and saint at least he's actually saying something just nothingness of Elizabeth Warren. But you know with a shot at charter schools at the end. I I don't know what to say about these just bullshit. Empty rehearsed lines By Pete just nothing there And Yeah but Elizabeth Warren with shot at charter schools. After that in the context of that was that they were asking about Mike Bloomberg increasing charter schools which greatly helped In in New York so that was a little bit weird but not not much comment on that I. Let's keep going all I come at this with a great deal of humility because we've had a lot of issues especially when it comes to racial justice and policing in my own community. Anna come to this with some humility. I'm conscious of the fact that they're seven white people on this stage talking about racial justice. I know that if I were black. My success would have been a lot harder to achieve. I know a lot of black people that if they were white it would have been a lot easier for them. That's just a fact and we've got to do something about it then graph. Just demagogue about it. Let's just go on the record. They Talk About Forty Democrats twenty one of those people that I spent one hundred million dollars to help elect the all of the new Democrats that came in and put Nancy Pelosi in charge and gave the Congress the.

"I let's get back into the show. So okay going through. Let's just go through the list of people real quick up. Maybe I'll great him. That's usually how what I do with these debate recaps So there were six people on the stage. I would say Okay let's start with Bernie Sanders. I you know I'd give him a B for for the debate. He did fine. He didn't hurt himself. He didn't do particularly Great Bernie Sanders. At this point. You know he repeats his thing over and over again You know he didn't. He didn't do anything to change the dynamics but he didn't need to. He's the front runner and he did reasonably well at making sure that there were like no serious wounds. Nobody landed anything big on him. So that's it and you know like if you think of like a fighting analogy or something like that it's like if you're up for rounds to nothing and you're going into the fifth and final round for like a championship fight or something and you know you just make sure you don't take any big shots. Okay well then you did what you needed to do so. He did what he needed to do. In this debate Joe Biden. I will say I thought Joe Biden had his best debate performance yet. Now I did not say. Please make sure you hear me correctly. I didn't say Joe Biden had a good debate performance. I said he had his best one yet. He's been atrocious. But this was a different Joe Biden which was kind of interesting to see. I didn't I didn't know he had it in him and he was clearly. I mean this is it. He knows I'm sure. His campaign has made this clear to him that South Carolina is. This is his last stand. I mean he has. It's still very unlikely that he could get back in this thing for real but the only way he can is first place in South Carolina. There's nothing else is a victory. Everything else is a is a fatal a fatal loss for Joe Biden. I mean you can't come in second in a state where you were up by fifty points and spin that into some type of like successful night and of course if you're Joe Biden and you've been running on. I'm the one who can win. Well then you have to win something at some point so he needs a win and this is the state where he was up fifty points. This is like he's this is the one he has to win this one. So and and he came out in this debate and he was much more angry and aggressive than he's been in these other debates where he's been very passive and it worked better. It worked better for him than the previous debates at he. He had a couple. You know floods. I mean. He can't help himself from the stuttering and flooding things up. He does that all the time I mean he can't. The Guy can't speak in paragraphs without something going wrong and he had a couple embarrassing moments. I think we're gonNA play some clips. We'll probably get to the major one But But he did better better. It wasn't as bad Bloomberg so Biden. I guess grading on a Biden curve or something like that you might give him a B overall like a C. Plus something like that Bloomberg came off a Bloomberg came off of an F. That was his last debate. It was it was at like. I'm not being harsh on the that was. The previous debate was the worst debate performance. I've ever seen I've never seen anybody and I mean I've seen really bad debate performances like I remember Rick Perry when he said there's three departments I'm going to eliminate and couldn't remember what the departments were and then just said oops and I actually thought Bloomberg had a worst performance. The LAST DEBATE DEBATE. It was terrible. Just terrible he did better in this one but it was still bad. It may be went from like an F to a d plus or something like that. He's just not good at these he doesn't have any like he just doesn't have that it factor. He doesn't HAVE ANY CHARISMA. He doesn't put he doesn't put forth like A. This is why you should vote for me. His whole thing is basically that Bernie. Sanders won't win so may and that's just that's a tough message to sell Bernie Sanders is out there selling. I think healthcare should be a right. We need a revolution in this country. Free College Wipe Away College debt. You know Whatever all of you know. Raise the minimum wage. All of these things and you're selling well. I don't think he can win with that. How are you going to get people as enthusiastic? Your donors in this debate audience aside. Who's GonNa be enthusiastic about that stuff? Elizabeth Warren. I thought had like a a B. Like she did good. She was on the attack again. And and kind of getting in there. But it's just a Elizabeth. Warren unfortunately suffers from being Elizabeth Warren. She's just a very unappealing human being very unappealing mayor. Pete I thought did bad I think he's he was one of his poor debate performances. If you ask me he He like I'd I'd give him like a see. Maybe a C. minus. He usually is fairly. You know okay at these things I mean. He comes off robotic and kind of empty and just speaks in platitudes. But that's him you know but he doesn't embarrass himself you know like he's he's got all of his answers memorized and he's quick on his feet and he's he's a High. Iq person you can tell Just nothing authentic and no real issues that he's like cares about but this one he tried to get more aggressive and I just thought it didn't work for him. I also thought the interrupting stuff was really like He. Overplayed it to the point where it was like this. I felt like it was backfiring on him. I I don't know who knows what the average person watching thought but that was how it came off to me so not a great night for him Amy Klobuchar just like another another seem minus or something like that. I mean just you know. She's starting to fall into this. Like wire you there category like. Why are you still in the race She's got these like kind of canned. Pre written one liners. They're like these like mom jokes. They're always horrible and know laughs and then laughs really hard at her own jokes. She had the shaking under control a little bit better in this debate. Chosen spasm out like she has been in previous debates. I'll give her. I'll give her some credit for that. And then there was Tom Steyer who I could only describe his debate performance as he was there he was technically there. And that's about as much as I could say. He really is falling into the category of like. What are you doing here? What are you doing here? What's the point? You don't get me wrong. There are people there like Andrew Yang you know was still in the debate or Tulsi. Gabbard was still in the in debate or like there. Are these other people. Who even if they were polling very low. You could understand where like why they're still there because they've got kind of like a signature issue that nobody else is really talking about at least not seriously the way they are so like if Andrew Yang believes we need a universal basic income like this is the reason why nobody else's is endorsing this. And that's why I'm here to push this belief that I have because I believe in this and I think it's the it's necessary for the country or obviously Tulsi Gabbard there of much more sympathetic to being there because nobody is truly an anti-war candid. I'm the only one who's leading with the war issue and who's telling you we have to stop fighting these wars. You can understand why they would stay there but someone like Tom Sta Higher. You're like what are you doing here? What what's his thing that I I I want. I want to impeach Donald Trump. I've been leading the effort to impeach Donald Trump from the beginning. It's like okay well. Donald Trump was already impeached and he was acquitted. So that's over right. What are what are you running on you? Want to impeach him again like Oh okay. So there's really nothing there and then he's like I'm for you know I'm a climate change activists which is I mean. Okay but the problem is so is everybody so as everybody on the stage every there's nobody on that stage. Who'S NOT GONNA say? Climate change is an existential threat and we need to take bold action. Yada Yada would you know that's everybody And then it's like. Oh so I'm you know I'm a climate change activists but I don't like Medicare for all and it's like so you don't like Medicare for all but neither does Bloomberg neither does Joe Biden neither neither. Does Amy Klobuchar. So Now. Now where are we again like? What what. What reason is there for you being here? So we are thing. If you don't have an issue that differentiates yourself and you're fading in the polls and not fading your irrelevant in the polls you have no possible path to the nomination. So why why be there? Just because you want to be president like okay you want to be president. Guess who doesn't want you to be president. The voters so beat at like. It's it's very strange But anyway so that was more or less the my take away from from the performances of the night. So let's let's play these clips there We got a little video which some packages will play some clips pause it and discuss some of the things that were said. I really am surprised that all of my fellow contestants up here I guess would be the right word for it given. Nobody pays attention to the clock. I'm surprised they show up because I would have thought after I did. Such a good job and beating on last week that they'd be a little bit afraid to do that. Excuse is positive. Donald Trump so bloomberg. I GIVE HIM A. I'll give him a little bit of credit that he tried to make a joking reference to his terrible performance and it didn't really land it didn't it wasn't delivered in a very funny way but I will. Here's what I will give to Michael Bloomberg after a debate performance like his previous one again the worst debate performance. I've ever seen and I've been watching these for quite a while. That's about all you can do like basically all you can do in the next debate is like Oh man. I'm surprised anyone even wants to debate me anymore. Given how awesome I am at this. I mean you got so like there was a good. It was a good idea. I have to say unfortunately This effeminate New York. Jewish billionaire isn't the funniest guy I've ever seen in my life and He Just didn't didn't land it but I I will give him some Some points for for the attempt all right. Let's let's play but Donald Trump thinks would be better. If he's president. I do not think so. Vladimir Putin thinks that Donald trump is should be president added states. And that's why Russia is helping you get elected.

"We need to roll back. The State we sti- on all of our own citizens are prisoners. Loaded with non violent drug offenders. If you want to know who? America's next enemy is look at. We were funding right now. Every single one of these problems are government being way too big talk. What's going on everybody? What's up welcome to a brand new episode of part of the problem? Thank you for listening or watching or however consuming. I appreciate it. I am flying solo For this episode no guest no Robbie the Fire Bernstein his Corona virus took a turn for the worse All this time. We thought AIDS was protecting him against the corona virus and You know we had it on on word from top scientists that they would cancel each other out but You know what are the scientists know? And now I'm starting. I'm starting to question everything. Maybe climate change isn't the threat that everyone says. I don't know scientists were wrong on this one but anyway get better soon rob Bernstein. I have a feeling he'll be better by Friday but fingers crossed fingers crossed that that comes trump so obviously there was a debate last night We'll do some recap of that for today's episode but man it is really It's crunch time in the Democratic primaries at this point Were just a couple of days away from The South Carolina primary and then We are less than a week away from Super Tuesday. Super Tuesday is very close super close to the South Carolina primary at this point. So now you kind of have this weird thing. Where they're almost kind of lumped together and what I mean by that is just that winning South Carolina isn't going to give you some bump going into Super Tuesday because there's barely enough time to really get press about to fundraise off of it to really see any jump in the polls or anything like that. So that's one more thing that seems to be working against a Joe Biden. But this is this is it. We're GONNA as of next week. We're going to have a much clearer picture of what the process is. GonNa look like and at this point. They're they're really only seems to be to Possibilities and one is that a week from now Bernie Sanders has just run away with this thing or two that a week. From now Bernie. Sanders is the front runner but he hasn't run away from it and that's a if you're Bernie Sanders you gotta be pretty pleased with the where you sit right now going into South Carolina man. It's a real chance for I think not only a knockout blow of Joe Biden but a But a devastating turn for Bernie Sanders. Just take this whole thing over. I mean if he takes South Carolina and then does very well on Super Tuesday. I think it's GonNa be damn near impossible for anybody to To catch him and just to to understand what's going on here. Joe Biden still sits as the as the latest polls. He was up four five points in South Carolina but to keep perspective on that Joe Biden was up by fifty points at one point in the South Carolina polls. He was up by fifty four points. You know he had huge huge lead there and it's now Bernie Sanders is within striking distance. As they say so this is you know it. It certainly could go either way at this point. I think there's a strong chance that that Joe Biden ends up under performing and Bernie Sanders takes it and then things get interesting things. Get real real interesting when you got it really at that point I think is going to be Bernie Sanders Verse Donald Trump. It's one of those things where no matter how many times you say it out loud. It's still seems pretty remarkable that that would be the presidential election in two thousand twenty if you had told someone that in nineteen eighty. They would've shit their pants or just not believed you. That's probably more likely. If they shit their pants there was already something wrong with that guy. That's I'll just I'll say that. So a debate. It was another shit show. It was really another shit. Show even the mainstream corporate press is. They seem to not be happy. Everybody is acknowledging that this was bad. I actually think this one was even worse than the previous one. The previous debate was nasty and there were a lot of attacks and a lot of fighting. But this one was like even even nastier attacks and there was Talking over each other the moderators were terrible. It was a CBS debate. They had what's her name. Oprah Winfrey's friend Gayle King is a moderating like which is just ridiculous. I mean. I don't know this woman's seems to be more suited for like a you. Know like a light-hearted morning show or interviewing celebrities but you would think that a serious news network. Cbs would be like. Yeah you kind of have to be like a policy expert to do one of these debates This is kind of a big deal for us but they just had her and she was very awkward and strange and they're just these weird moments at one moment where she like called Joe Biden. A gentleman was just being kind of lighthearted and complementary which again is fine when you're interviewing celebrities or doing some morning show but it's really weird and inappropriate when you're a debate moderator and the job is president of the United States. You're supposed to like be neutral and not do things like that anyway. There was talking over each other between the candidates..

"Data and designed for people learn more at design. Dot ADP DOT COM. All eyes are on South Carolina ahead of next week's Democratic presidential primary there the first in the south former vice president. Joe Biden picked up a big endorsement today from representative James Clyburn. The top ranking black lawmaker in Congress. Do we know Joe. Most importantly Jew knows us but Biden could be facing an uphill battle in the state as he tries to court. Moderate voters joining me now from the campaign trail in Georgetown. South Carolina Is Wall Street Journal. Reporter. Ken Thomas Ken. How significant is representative? James Clyburn endorsement of Biden. Clyburn is probably the most influential Democrat in South Carolina. He's been in Congress since the early nineties and is the highest ranking black lawmaker in Congress right now and his words carry a lot of wheat. Were only a few days before the South Carolina primary and a little more than fifty percent of the electorate is black here in the state so getting that support from Clyburn has a big coup for Biden. He's been trying to win here and set the tone for Super Tuesday states coming up and as we head into South Carolina's primary. How is Biden? Faring well polls show Biden ahead here in South Carolina but it's a narrow lead. He's dominated the race throughout here in South Carolina but as he has struggled in Iowa and New Hampshire the polls gotten much tighter against Bernie Sanders. He's also dealing with Tom. Star who has spent more than twenty million dollars on advertising in South Carolina so he could also be a factor in so binding is really trying to use the state as a springboard for his campaign away to calm nervous. Democrats out there who have long thought that he could be the best matchup against president trump. Can you wrote about Biden's courting of centrist voters? What can you tell us about that? As compared to his Democratic rivals who's presenting the biggest challenge for him there so Biden is trying to consolidate the more moderate vote in the Democratic primaries. He's trying to make the case that Bernie Sanders would be to outside the mainstream if he turned into the nominee and that down ballot candidates running for office in the Senate and the House would struggle as a result if if Bernie Sanders was at the top of the ticket. The trouble for Biden. Though is that it's a very crowded lane. You have Buddha. Judge who is a has had success in in Iowa and New Hampshire so far you have amy Klobuchar who is run a pretty strong campaign and other candidates as well or just trying to fill that lane right now in so biden is running the risk of Having a a splintered vote among moderates and that would allow Sanders to pick up a lot of delegates by the basis of support from Liberals Biden was asked during last night's debate if he would drop out of the race if he failed to win South Carolina and his answer was that he will win South Carolina Ken. What if he doesn't? How important is it for Biden to win the state if he wants to continue in this race his candidacy really does hinge on winning South Carolina? It probably is not a fatal blow for him if he were to come in second place but this is all about momentum in the ability to keep improving as as the calendar goes along and the the the risk for Biden if he does not win in South Carolina is that he won't have much ability to to win votes in these Super Tuesday contests. That are coming. Up On march third. Just a few days after the South Carolina. Primary wraps up. He's hoping to use a win. In South Carolina to connect with African Americans who who make up a large portion of the electorate in number of Super Tuesday states including places like Georgia Alabama Tennessee and in other states around the country.

"Welcome to the point or February twenty six. I'm more into SKI CO author of the Point. I'm here to cut through the political spin to bring you the news you need to know. Democrats spoke up a lot in the final debate before the South Carolina primary and Super Tuesday the to our affair from Charleston was a chaotic often. Confusing debate where six candidates onstage fought hard to prove why they deserve the Democratic nomination to refresh your memory on stage it was Bernie Sanders Joe Biden Elizabeth. Warren P judge Amy Klobuchar Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer. Most of the candidates tried to knock sanders. The current front runner who's poised to run away with this race Bloomberg said Sanders was a weak general election candidate. Which is why Russia is trying to get him elected. Warren accused Sanders team. Trashing her over her plan to pay for Medicare for all. Buddha judge scoffed at Sanders calls for political revolution. When he wouldn't make a rule change in refusing to blow up the Senate filibuster Biden again slammed sanders over his votes against the Brady Act which mandated a waiting period on handgun purchases. But it doesn't seem like this. Debate will unseat Sanders Front runner status. He defended himself and saw a series of other squabbles. Onstage among the other candidates Warren again hammered Bloomberg over his record with women biting criticized dire for investing in private prisons enclosure. Try to stay above the fray completely pitching herself as a voice of reason for what it's worth. It doesn't appear that this debate will alter many candidates trajectories good or bad sanders able to bypass most of the issues on stage. Biden turned in a stronger than normal debate performance but his still set expectations high for his South Carolina performance. And it's up to everyone else to try to catch up. Let's get to the point. This was the last debate until March fifteenth way after Super Tuesday. We will see. Just how many of these candidates will still be onstage in?

"Senator Bernie Sanders won the primary last night and we'll take that momentum into Nevada no but wider to bring. You ought to be pretty good new. We have now one Nevada corker. All EYES ARE TURNING TO SOUTH CAROLINA. The next battleground state in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination Bernie. Sanders is the undisputed front runner among Democratic presidential candidates hoping to challenge Donald Trump. Hey It's Alex Berenson New York so last week in Nevada. We saw the candidates are going after each other more intensely than ever before days. Before the caucuses there as Bernie Sanders was emerging as a progressive front runner with none of the more moderate candidates willing to drop out and Mike Bloomberg fragmenting devote even further good evening and welcome the Democratic presidential primary here in South Carolina. The primary in the south is just four days. Away and Super Tuesday is just a week away and this is the biggest primary day of the year as voters in fourteen states cast ballots and many of them. Tell us they have not actually made up mind so this this week with days to go until the South Carolina primary and signs that Sanders is gaining among African American voters. Things were even more wild and the debate moderators totally failed to keep control of the event which didn't help we're talking about. L. Look first of all. Let me come. I think she was talking about my plan. Not Yours talk right away. As expected it was a Sanders Pylon Bernie and I agree on a lot of things but I think I would make a better president than Bernie and the reason the candidates were trying to convey that nominating Bernie. Sanders would be dangerous. That's nominated democratic. Socialist is to deliver a second term. You trump we will elect Bernie Bernie will lose to Donald Trump and donald trump and the house and the Senate and some of the state houses will all go red and then between gerrymandering and pointing judges for the next twenty or thirty years. We're going to live with US and cost Democrats Their House majority and imperilled efforts to win the Senate twenty twenty cans. The time has come for us to stop acting like the presidency is the only office matters. Not only is this a way to get donald trump reelected. You got a house to worry. You got a Senate to worry about and this is this is really important. Hearing my name mentioned a little bit tonight maybe but what we saw from sanders was a candidate totally claiming his mantle and digging in on some of his most controversial position on Medicare for all we need to do is to do what every other major country on earth does guarantee healthcare to all people on Israel. I am very proud of being Jewish. I actually lived in Israel for some months but when I happen to believe. Is that right now? Sadly tragically in Israel through BB Netanyahu. You have a reactionary cest. Who is now running that country? What are the most revealing? Exchanges was on Cuban the Chinese Communist Party for lifting more people out of extreme poverty than any other country. You also have a track record of expressing sympathy for socialist governments in Cuba and in Nicaragua. Can Americans trust that? A democratic socialist president will not give Authoritarians a free pass. I have opposed authoritarianism all over the world and I was really. Sanders asked why he had praised some accomplishments of the cast ruining their tighter chip there. Of course you have a dictatorship in Cuba. What I said is what Barack Obama said in terms of Cuba. Cuba made progress on education. Yes I think. Really really bad to Barack Obama's they made hoping rave progress on education healthcare. That was Barack Obama. I told you speak and rather than try to back away from it. Sanders is essentially saying yes. I said it I stand by it. I was right and I'm not pivoting. Occasionally it might be good idea to be honest about American foreign policy and that includes the fact that America has overthrown governments all over the world in Chile in Guatemala in Iran and where dictatorships whether it is the Chinese or the Cubans. Do something good. You acknowledged. But you don't have. This is a core tenant of Sanders worldview his belief that the United States has often been a disruptive even destructive force overseas and by standing by that view as he becomes a front runner for a major party's presidential nomination. He's reinforcing one of his essential political calling cards. His consistency his ability to say these are the views I've had for decades. I'm right now I've been right for forty years and many voters really admire about him vice president fighting but the latest one issue sanders can't claim that kind of consistency and didn't try. We talk about progressive. Let's talk about being progresses. Walking dishes fears Emmanuel Church. Nine people shot dead by a white. Supremacist Bernie voted five times against the Brady Bill and monitor waiting waiting waiting period of twelve hours. I'm not saying he's responsible for the nine desk but that man would not been able to get that weapon with the waiting period that Ben will I suggest until you are cleared for most of his career? Sanders opposed crucial forms of gun regulation including a landmark Brady Bill in one thousand nine hundred and he voted to shield gun manufacturers lawsuits. I want allow Senator Sanders respond. Because you've gone after the insurance industry you've taken on pharmaceutical companies and you've taken on big tech. Why did you vote repeatedly to give gun manufacturers a pass Joe has voted for terrible trade agreements? Don't no no no seems to? This is a problem on all these other issues. He's just digging in his heels under attack. Here he says yes. I made a mistake. I have cast thousands of votes including bad votes. That was a bad book. And this is the rare part of his record that undercuts his claim to total consistency and authenticity. Over the years. I have today a D. minus voting record from the NRA but sanders opponents didn't let him off the hook. It's a chance for even like Bloomberg a former Republican to question sanders claims to progressive purity and to total consistency over a long career. And to do it heading into this critical next state. The issue of gun control has hurt sanders badly in South Carolina in the past. It's an issue that matters a lot to African American voters there and in two thousand Sixteen Hillary Clinton used it to great effect in the State. This time even. Bloomberg managed to get his footing in a handful of important exchanges including one in which he accused Sanders of and supported the NRA and certainly some of the Sanders is supported the NRA. But so that's the latest. We'll see on Saturday. Sanders can manage a decisive breakthrough in South Carolina. Or whether Joe Biden were someone else might still making comeback..

This is a core tenant of Sanders worldview his belief that the United States has often been a disruptive even destructive force overseas and by standing by that view even as he becomes a front runner for a major party's presidential nomination. He's reinforcing one of his essential political calling cards. His consistency his ability to say these are the views I've had for decades. I'm right now I've been right for forty years and many voters really admire about him vice president fighting but the latest one issue sanders can't claim that kind of consistency and didn't try. We talk about progressive. Let's talk about being progresses. Walking dishes fears Emmanuel Church. Nine people shot dead by a white. Supremacist Bernie voted five times against the Brady Bill and monitor waiting waiting waiting period of twelve hours. I'm not saying he's responsible for the nine desk but that man would not been able to get that weapon with the waiting period that Ben will I suggest until you are cleared for most of his career? Sanders opposed crucial forms of gun regulation including a landmark Brady Bill in one thousand nine hundred and he voted to shield gun manufacturers lawsuits. I want allow Senator Sanders respond. Because you've gone after the insurance industry you've taken on pharmaceutical companies and you've taken on big tech. Why did you vote repeatedly to give gun manufacturers a pass Joe has voted for terrible trade agreements? Don't no no no seems to? This is a problem on all these other issues. He's just digging in his heels under attack. Here he says yes. I made a mistake. I have cast thousands of votes including bad votes. That was a bad book. And this is the rare part of his record that undercuts his claim to total consistency and authenticity. Over the years. I have today a D. minus voting record from the NRA but sanders opponents didn't let him off the hook. It's a chance for even like Bloomberg a former Republican to question sanders claims to progressive purity and to total consistency over a long career. And to do it heading into this critical next state. The issue of gun control has hurt sanders badly in South Carolina in the past. It's an issue that matters a lot to African American voters there and in two thousand Sixteen Hillary Clinton used it to great effect in the State. This time even. Bloomberg managed to get his footing in a handful of important exchanges including one in which he accused Sanders of and supported the NRA and certainly some of the Sanders is supported the NRA. But so that's the latest. We'll see on Saturday. Sanders can manage a decisive breakthrough in South Carolina. Or whether Joe Biden were someone else might still making comeback..

"That is a huge deal with the Democratic Party and south, Carolina. So anytime candidate takes the time to attend those events. Let's everyone know that you're really interested in South Carolina Interested in South Carolina voters and you're GONNA do whatever it takes to get South Carolina voters as well. Now let's talk about the barbecue aspect. So when you come this way you have to eat department Q. The low country I think they're more vinegar base. I think the upstate where I'm from is more mustard yellow base. Then I think in the middle is more like ketchup and vinegar base, but you have to come and try all of it and then a lot of people go to Rodney Scott Barbecue. So there's one in Hemingway South Carolina, and then there's one in Charleston so. Tom's dyer what he did for the arts kind of Cook off was he brought the entire Rodney Scott restaurant from Charleston to the kickoff. So he's out there serving whole mills of Barbecue. So those are just two well known staples in two well-known Barbecue joints that people know national because Rodney Scott. Says actually rank nationally with their barbecue. So you have to come to South Carolina and try those to barbecue places. I feel like if a candidate is thinking about trying to set up like the perfect photo opportunity barbecues like a worse case scenario you thanks well, if you see. You. Need to take the picture before they start eating at least what the four going into the mouth. Breath thank you so much for joining us. It's been a really really great conversation. Thank you.

"Insurance is good enough for them to take care of their families. So I think we're they're looking for, is that person who will make sure that there will be taken care of because they're state isn't doing their legislator isn't doing. So what can you do for me? If I have to go to the polls to vote for you something that we're hearing from a couple of experts in different early states and I'm wondering if it's the same in South Carolina is that one difference? This election cycle versus past election cycles is there's been kind of a gun nationalization of. Of the primary and so voters are looking they're looking at national polls there. Is More than they had in past cycle do you think that's also true in South Carolina? Do you think the local traditions and in an endorsement still really reigns supreme I do I really do So for instance, a lot of people who endorsed Kamla and Start Carolina are now moving to. Joe. Biding there's this group of Women in Columbia Law Richland area called the wrecking crew they were very. Instrumental with support and calmly they were very instrumental supporting Hillary Clinton in. Now since Kamla course got out the race, they have thrown their support behind Joe Biden. So I think endorsements really work in like southern states or maybe like a rural areas because a lot of times people follow the lead of their community leaders or their elected officials is so I think that's why endorsements are still important and they mean a lot right everybody will be vying for Congressman Clermont's endorsement. But of course you he has to have a reason to endorse you, and if he does endorse, you is going to be at the last minute. So his endorsement means a lot. So just having certain people endorsed, you'd be from certain elated officials, certain community leaders and even certain faith leaders is a big deal in South Carolina, there is a narrative that Obama had proved in two thousand eight that Obama had proved he was appealing to white voters by winning Iowa, and then that gave the green light for voters in South Carolina to vote for him the do you think the order of the early states? Influences the others no I think every other state is like a football scrimmage and when you get to South Carolina you're really playing hardball. So no I think everything else is just We're just sitting here drinking tea eating cookies, but once you finally get to South Carolina is when everything really put the rubber to the road what are some of the big swings are shifts that you've seen in the primary so far? So when calmly I.

"So how were you in your ministration GonNa make sure that we as voters a get what we deserve. Even if our state route leadership doesn't appreciate it. So I think that's a very local issue. And then I think the other real big local issue is understanding. That Y- we have. An education system this is nationwide, but we have education system that has really failed our students for years arse local folks our local school boards have tried their best to do what they can. But when you're relying upon state dollars state dollars that are based on the property taxes where you live than you have rural areas and you have a areas where there's higher poverty level that their schools are not getting the resources they need, and that's a big issue here in our state, our state got sued probably twenty something years ago. And they still have funded education and so those that's big issue. That people want our federal government to be able to address. I do want to dig in a little bit on that dynamic that you had mentioned that it must be such an interesting position for South Carolina registered Democrats that the voters are so important and get so much attention during a Democratic primary. But then once we move into a general election or an offer elections, non presidential election years, the focus really then becomes local government. So what impact do you think that has on primary voters like do you see enthusiasm for the Democratic primary declining you know now I actually kind of the opposite at sea food. During this time, it excitement because we feel like our important. And I think what happens is you get people who feel want someone is elected. You know after I get a lot of people say that in February you know we're not going to be important more. So you better get all your press right down or you better, you get your all your attention right now. So I think people are excited during the primary but I think that causes the voter apathy later, and that's one thing we always talk about like. You know our governors race is the off year. So in two years will be electing a governor and you know it's hard to fathom that people get so excited for the presidential election because you get all these folks who are coming in showing attention to our state. But when it really matters when you have the state election, the numbers are so skewed. I mean when you look at it and we just went through a governor's election last year went great candidate. And you think about Oregon's it was two years ago now. Yeah. is now January. So two years ago November twenty eighteen and you look at the numbers in that gubernatorial race versus the the numbers in the.

"So what issues do you think are at the top of the minds of voters looking at this? Presidential primary. So for me, I think there are there several but I would say that right now I think that there's still a lot of undecided voters and the reason is because when you look at the policies of the in the democratic field, the policies are just very similar. So it's really about who people feel like they can really connect with. So I think the major issues are is income inequality inequality diversity among representation is very important economic. Development making sure that you know that you have policies that are good for everybody on the spectrum and that you're creating jobs within the community that Peop- and that we have students that are able to go into those jobs I think that's really important and then right now I think the primary thing. That I hear a lot of people talk about is you know they just feel like the current administration is is not looking out for everybody. So right now, I think people just really want to go back to having someone who is civil and that they feel like they can respect. And that they can look at even if you don't agree with their policies, you can look at until your kids. I'm proud that person is is a leader in this they don't do things that make you cringe when you watch the news. So that's what I hear. Honestly a lot of discussion about what do you think is the South Carolina's slant on the issue. How do these issues differ from other early states you know I think for south, Carolina I don't know if the issues are different as much. As the the relationship to the issues if that makes sense are a different in a south. Carolina will be the first state with a diverse electorate and so when you talk about income inequality in Iowa, it may be different than income inequality in south. Carolina. Especially when you think about the racial wealth gap in our country, there's there's obviously wealth gap and we talk about it and the candidates top. But it's heightened think about the wealth gap as it relates to people of Color and so in South Carolina that is heightened for us because we've got you know we've got schools that are in our court or shame that still you know students are going there to learn and they're they look like they should be in a third world country. We still have hospitals that are closing because our state didn't expand Medicaid, and if you have income. You can drive or you have insurance but if you don't, then it's life or death whether or not. You know you're close to a hospital. So I think the issues are a little bit the the way the issues relate to us here in south. Carolina are a little bit different than they might relate to the voters in other states what would surprise listeners outside of South Carolina to know about the voters priorities there that's a great question. I would think honestly I think what would surprise people is that?.

"Welcome back to your primary playlist, I'm your host Emily Tisch sussman. For those joining us for the first time this podcast is your definitive guide to the twenty twenty presidential primary explained by the women who know at best. In. The final installment of our second season, we're taking you to South Carolina. The. Last of the early states but I in the south. The twenty twenty race and the leading Democrats are moving south. Back former Vice President Biden headed to South Carolina even before New Hampshire's results were in. This is the first cast of black support of course, African Americans vote over ninety percent for the Democratic Party they definitely have to appeal to African American women voters who true in South Carolina and across the nation are core constituency race for the Democratic presidential nomination is hitting full speed today into new terrain. South Carolina and maybe the most influential of the early states for several reasons. The first is timing Super Tuesday when fifteen states and territories will vote is only three days after south? Carolina. So whoever wins South Carolina comes into that day with a lot momentum. Another reason South Carolina's primary is so crucial is the demographics of the electorate as we discussed in season one African American voters and especially African American women make up the most reliable voting block of the Democratic Party as I'm sure you remember ninety four percent of black women voted for Hillary, Clinton in two thousand sixteen, a Democratic nominee really can't win a presidential election without their enthusiastic support. Prior to the South Carolina primary, we will have barely heard from this pivotal voting group but in South Carolina African American voters make up seventy eight percent of the democratic electorate according to Pew. This makes South Carolina the first test to see which candidate can garner support from a diverse electorate. That's far more reflective of the Democratic Party is a whole needless to. Say winning. South Carolina is a big deal and the candidates. No it south. Carolinians know at two and they take their job very seriously. The traditions are strict and so the potential for gaps his high to get an insider's take on the pivotal role South Carolina plays and how best to succeed in the state I spoke with the women organizing on the ground..

"We've talked a number of times over the past year or so about the billion dollar boondoggle known as the VC summer nuclear expansion project. The project began as a shared effort between the summer nuclear generation station Scana santee Cooper, the goal was adding two reactors onto to the South Carolina plant after a decade and nine billion dollars the expansion bogged down there were many delays cost overruns and finally July of two thousand seventeen they cried and gave up. Now, despite the abandonment more than seven hundred thousand South Carolina, utility customers see charges related to the project. They're having to foot the Bill for this boondoggle. Lawmakers have been back and forth on whether you know, should should the payments. Be allowed to be continue to foot the Bill these customers. Here's what we know. SE? Ian, jeez rates are already high due to VC summer. Santee Cooper Duke Energy progress Duke Energy, Carolinas. They won't rate hikes this in a state that spends more per capita on energy than any other state. Joining before few minutes today, Dr orange myth senior fellow with a promises to who says that there's a solution. Dr Smith released a report today, the kind of breaks down for us. And we're gonna talk about it, and Dr Smith, welcome in always good to have you. Good. Good to you. Joe? Yes. Exciting day for us. This is the report that we have been working on for quite a while. And it takes a really unique approach to the idea of energy competition within of course, the idea of energy competition itself is is a novel approach at least two us 'cause we've never had it here. We've we've had the idea that when it comes to electric city. There's something known as a natural monopoly. And that is where you can only have one supplier one choice vertically integrated all the way from generating electricity transmitting and then district distributing it. So it's kind of an eye opener for a lot of folks to say, hey, really, I mean in some states in America, you have a choice of your energy provider. You have. Competition and the answer is. Yes, yes. There are places where there is choice, and that is foreign to us here in South Carolina, or in because we've never had that choice, but you go to other states like, Texas, and some you literally you get to choose kinda like back in the old days when bell south was the only game in town for your phone service. Now, you can choose same thing with with electric city, some states allow you that and in your report, Dr Smith, you talk about that we actually have a number of different energy providers electrical electronic providers in the state. We could have that competition. If we just kind of changed the way we do things. Right. Right. And you know, you, and I when we call together, we all refer to our common childhood growing up in Greer, South Carolina. And I used Greer as an example because I remember distinctly our home. Sometimes we would lose power in the neighbors would not are the neighbors would lose power. And we was not, and I found out the reason was one of us was on Greer Commissioner of public works power. And the other was on power. Yup. We had we had Honi that were side by side. They're on different substations in different networks, and we didn't have that choice. Our neighbors were fined one, and we were in the other. But our idea is this. Let's look across the border at something that they're doing in Georgia in Georgia. If you have a road of nine hundred kilowatts or more. And nine hundred kilowatt load or pull on the power grid is about the size of target store or WalMart or sometimes a Walgreens, but probably slightly larger than a wall in shorts. You have a choice if you have that level of road. You're able to put out for bid what you wanna pay for your power per kilowatt hour. So you may have the co-op which, you know, you're probably somewhere around Blue Ridge electric co-op here. You may have Duke Energy. You may have any Commissioner public works or what would they call? It municipal or a meeting and those three would compete for your business. We're thinking it would be an economic development broom if people found out that you'd come to South Carolina, and in the process of siting their plants they would have different utilities fighting over
