Two Georgia races will decide which party controls the Senate

"The Senate is currently split with two races still to be called on to others in Georgia to be decided in a January 5th run off Now it's pretty clear at this point that in Alaska, Sullivan is going to win the Republican In North Carolina, Thom Tillis. Basically it's already in the bag, so they'll hold those two seats based on what we have in front of us now, David Purdue is gonna run off with this guy, John. Looks like a sock puppet and Kelly lawful er she's It's like the more precarious situation. These two Republican senators right now in Georgia in a runoff January fits both of these. Go to a runoff On January 5th on Kelly lost forgets his Warnock. And and the Republicans only need to hold one of those Georgia presuming that they hold assuming that they hold North Carolina with Tillis and Alaska with Sullivan. Then they only need to get one either. Perdue who looks like he's very state against this guy, John In a January 5th runoff election, but the Democrats going to throw the kitchen sink and the you know the Winnebago and your grandmother's house, they're gonna throw everything at it. They're going to get their billionaires to go in front of it, and then to cry money and politics. And they're going to try to steal the Senate. Get control of the Senate by whatever means necessary by hook and by crook.

Control of Senate still uncertain with a few races left to be determined

"Is between Republican Senator David Perdue and Democrat John Assaraf. If Jonah's Off can pull David Perdue down below that 50% mark that race will go to a runoff A swell. Joining us now is Shivan Hughes, Capitol Hill reporter at The Wall Street Journal. They're joining us. Theo von Good to be here wanted to get an update on the elections. The Senate was something that a lot of people were focusing on. We've already kind of talked about how the polls were wrong again, or the races weren't as tight as we thought. You know, there was a lot of talk about Democrats possibly picking up a lot of Senate seats, possibly flipping the Senate. It doesn't look like that's gonna happen now. But there are some pickups that the Democrats did get, and there's still a few races that we have yet to call on this. So Shiven tell us a little bit about what's going on in the Senate. So right now, the Senate stands at an even 48 48 48 for Democrats, 48 for Republicans, Democrats picked oven at one seat because they won seats in Colorado and Arizona. But they lost a seat in Alabama. So that's where you get the net one. There are four races that are outstanding one in Alaska, where the Republican Dan Sullivan is expected to win and one in North Carolina, where that Republican Thom Tillis is expected to win, so to holds, the focus now is on to Georgia Senate races. One of them is already going to go to a runoff next year. That's the one featuring Republican Senator Kelly La Flor, who is defending that seat. The other one is between Republican Senator David producer and Democrat Jon Ossoff's. If Jon Ossoff's can pull David Perdue down below that 50% mark that race will go to a runoff. A swell If both races go to a runoff, and if Democrats pick up both seats, Democrats would have 50 seats total, which, if Joe Biden becomes the president means that Democrats would be in control. But that's a very, very narrow pathway for Democrats to climb and already you hear Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Sounding confident that he is going to be the majority leader next year. You know, I mentioned the poles and how wrong they were or how off they were. What do polls say about these two races? At least, I mean, if they're going to run off their already really tight races to begin with. So going into this, The Poles did show that these were going to be very tight races, at least especially in the case of David Perdue. He had started out in the polls a little bit ahead and then in the public polls going into this, he was less than a percentage point behind so well within the margin of error. And the point that suggested it was a dead. He we now have ah, different kind of pole in the form of the fact that people have now voted and we're seeing those votes start to come in. Currently, we have David D'oh at about the 50% mark, with votes still to be counted on absentee basis. We're looking in particular at those Atlanta suburbs, and that compares to about 47.7% for the Democrat John Assaraf with the libertarian at about 2% points, so a very, very close race there. Our Democrats looking in the house. That was another one where they said, you know, there was a possibility of them gaining seats that actually looks like they lost a few seats. So what's going on in the House of Representatives? The races aren't fully called yet. But yes, Democrats were sure they were going to pick up seats, maybe on the order of about 10 seats this cycle, and instead, Democrats are losing seats down by about seven, according to our last count. You're seeing Democrats like Joe Cunningham in South Carolina. Having lost in suburban areas like outside of ST Louis and Wagner's seat in Missouri. She held on to that Nazi which Democrats about they're going to be able to flip in New York State. Max Rose was not looking likely to keep the Democratic seat also Anthony Brindisi in a more western part of the state, not looking likely to keep his seat. So this was not a good election for Democrats. And as we Speak. The House Democrats are in the middle of a private conference call where you have to be sure they are hashing these issues out, and it's probably not very pretty. So, as you mentioned again, this kind of leaves us with the two houses divided again, just as we've had this past four years of President Trump, so whoever comes in, it'll be pretty difficult to get anything done again. Just as we've been going through. It's going to be really hard to get anything done. And because the outcome in the Senate is uncertain, we don't know exactly what's going to be possible. But whatever it is, it's going to be a lot less ambitious than what Democrats were thinking. Democrats were already planning for a big Corona virus relief package early next year. They had been planning to do major legislation on climate change, and you're seeing those be scaled back. I'm hearing people talk about maybe an infrastructure package that has Eluded both parties for so long, maybe something on broadband. I'm starting to hear with expectations that Joe Biden is likely to be the victor. Is there anything that he could do through executive action? Could he take money that Congress has already appropriated it and repurpose that it wouldn't be nearly enough as what Democrats are hoping to achieve their covert aid bill, but they're starting to explore alternative pathways.

Democrats are now unlikely to win a majority in the Senate: Here's where things stand

"Republicans are enjoying a much better election than anticipated. Republicans are now poised to maintain their majority in the Senate. I just received a very gracious call from Sara Gideon conceding the raise voice of Republican Senator Susan Collins, speaking earlier today in Maine, a state that Democrats had considered a must win to have a chance at flipping the Senate. No. In the House Republicans are expected to pick up seats shrinking the Democrats majority down to single digits for more on this NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis is here. Hey there, Sue what went wrong, so to speak for Democrats? Yeah, I mean, it's been a complete reversal of fortune for Republicans down the ballot. There had been this widespread confidence that Democrats were going to take over the Senate that they could gain as many as six or seven seats. And that Democrats were poised to grow their majority in the House by as many as 10 to 20 seats. Obviously, not if that happened. I think the one thing everyone is pointing to right now is just how wrong the Poles were. I think in that main Senate race that's a great example. The Democrats Sara Gideon, she led in public polls all year long and yet still fell far behind in the race. I talked to election analyst Sean Trendy this morning, and he told me that polling simply did not account for Trump's support that a significant number of Trump voters just were never accounted for. Those are the exact people that when you hear a phone call in the person says Hi, I'm from the New York Times. Would you take it all? Just go click. I think it is that straightforward. I also talked to Democratic Congressman Ami Bera of California today, and he said that the polling was way off from where it was in the 2018 midterms. And that's when Democrats won. He basically told me he just thinks Democrats couldn't account for the effect that Trump has when he himself is on the ballot. While it looks like Republicans will hold their majority in the Senate, Not all races have been called. Can you tell us what still outstanding? Yeah, There's still five races that haven't been called 47 have been called for Democrats 48 for Republicans won were watching really closely Is Michigan. There's a Democratic incumbent there. Gary Peters. He's running narrowly behind a Republican John James. Obviously, what could be a pickup opportunity for Republicans. North Carolina remains really tight, but incumbent Republican Senator Tom Tillis is leading. You know, that was always seen as a state that was critical to the majority. So if Republicans hold it, I think that's one of the reasons why they seem to feel pretty secure. Right now. Alaska hasn't been called, but I don't really see any reason there to think it's going to be a Democratic pick up and Last one's Georgia. There's two Senate races there. One of them is going to go to a January runoff, and it's quite possible. The other one where it's held by incumbent Republican David per two, might be able to hold it off and win it out, right. Given that there are some races that are going to be uncertain, at least for the next few days does that What does that mean for the Senate majority? It does, and you know, depending on how Georgia goes, it could take quite some time. North Carolina in particular, could be tight and could be subject to court challenge. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke to that reality earlier today in Kentucky. You can anticipate in close elections, Both sides will be lawyered up and we'll end up in court. It's happened over and over and over again. Nothing unusual, and I do want to see her. I think McConnell has a point, and it's worth focusing on that. I think a lot of people are really nervous about what's gonna be happening with Balan challenges. It's really not uncommon, especially in Senate races to go through court challenges. Before they're certified. It happens almost every election year. That's NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. Thank you. You're welcome.

Democrats are expected to retain control of the House, but there are still races to watch tonight

"At this point, there has been no net change in the balance of the US Senate and to talk about that. We're joined by NPR congressional correspondent Susan Davis. I su Hey, Ari. Let's take a broad look at the Senate map. Tonight. Republicans have held a few key seats. The Democrats are still hoping to win back in some cases, in some cases that has escaped their grasp tonight. What's the landscape is you see it now? Well, I think it looks like the path to the Democrats. Flipping control of the Senate is getting narrower. And now as the night goes on, Republicans holding onto seats in Texas and Kansas and Lindsey Graham winning reelection in South Carolina. These were always sort of reacher Democratic seats, But we were looking to them a signs of, you know, maybe this would be a big blue wave night. I think we're seeing enough results coming in that We do not believe this is going to be a big blue wave night. Certainly not down the ballots, so The path for Democrats to win a majority is just getting more difficult. We're still looking and waiting for results in Arizona, where Democrats expect to flip a seat there, and in Maine, where incumbent Senator Susan Collins has had probably her toughest reelection yet, but again, even with those two seats, that might not be enough to get Democrats where they need to be at also know we've been watching North Carolina really closely all night. Largely seen as a bellwether state for how the Senate would go Republican incumbent Thom Tillis is leading there. The Associated Press has not called the race. But Republicans I'm talking to tonight feel pretty good at their chances of holding on to a Senate majority, albeit with fewer seats and explain why that matters what the difference is between if we imagine that Biden wins the presidency, which we certainly don't know, But what is the difference between A Democratic president with a democratically controlled Congress and a Democratic president with a Republican controlled Congress. Well, I think what's interesting is if Republicans do retain control of the Senate. In some ways, it will be a status quo on Capitol Hill. We're looking at still split control of Congress. Democrats are still heavily favored toe hold their majority in the house. There's no reason to doubt that will happen, so whoever the next president is, but whether it be Donald Trump or Joe Biden They're likely to be facing a divided Congress. And what is the lesson? Bin of the past decade of divided government is that it's a recipe for gridlock and for a confrontation, and if that is the outcome of this election, I think the idea that we're going to see big sweeping legislative change becomes less and less likely, and on the House side. I interviewed Speaker Nancy Pelosi yesterday and she was optimistic about Democrats picking up seats tonight so far. Republicans have won a couple of seats they have and they have, and I think that's one of the things I'm looking at. That suggests that this sort of down ballot activity we're seeing is evidence that we're not going to see a big, dramatic Democratic wave tonight. Democrats still forecast to pick up digits seats in the single digits. But you know forecasters, we're going into the night saying they could pick up a CZ. Many is 15 to 20. That seems really unlikely. And we are seeing Democrats losing in some places to Democratic incumbents have already lost in Florida and South Florida, where the party took a bit of a weapon. Tonight. There's Democrats in New York. Max Rose, who was a freshman Democrat who won in the 2018 Democratic wave in a Staten Island district, a district very friendly to Donald Trump. He's down in the polls right now, but That race hasn't been officially called yet either Bellwether races in Virginia, you know, Republican incumbents have been winning their Arkansas so it is definitely not the terrible night that a lot of house Republicans were braced for. And if anything, I think I hear much more optimism coming from Republican strategist and Democrats at this hour, one race that is getting national attention, not because it was competitive, but because of the person who wanted Marjorie Taylor Greene. Somebody who has Made racist statements supported the conspiracy theory Q and on and is now headed to Congress. She is, and I would also note that in one of the Georgia Senate races tonight, Kelly Leffler Well, we can't say she won the runoff because it hasn't been declared. But her conservative opponent, Doug Collins, could seated the race to her, which means she will be the Republican likely going to a runoff in January, and she courted Marjorie Greens endorsement in the Senate race, and I think that speaks to sort of The influence the rising influence that someone like Marjorie Green and her views have inside the Republican Party to The Associated Press is actually just called the Georgia Senate going to run off with you as you were speaking.

We're going to take a look at one of the critical swing states last week it was Arizona we looked looked at this week. It is North Carolina and to give us a sense of the politics of the state and how they may be changing. We welcome now, Professor Michael Bitzer. He is chair of the Department of Politics at Catawba College. So, Professor Thank you so much for being with us. Give us your sense. A snapshot right now of North Carolina. And And what is it? Is it blue? Is it red? Is it purple? What is it? What is it? We are a purple state with a very slight tent. Two ribs were center lean right, but it's all dependent on who shows up. And what has happened here in North Carolina, after 2008 and particularly 2010 is that North Carolinians have basically sorted themselves into the respective partisan camps, you know, in 2000 for George W. Bush won the state by 13% points and the Democratic governor who was running for re election. Also one by 13% points. That day of North Carolinian, splitting their tickets as now shrunk to probably 3 to 5% of the electorate. Most North Carolinians have their minds made up going into November 3rd. So that's true sort of cost. The country appears there's a low number of undecided. Give us a sense of your campaign in North Carolina is a geographic difference. What he what do you really want to focus on One of the key counties, for example, are the key counted. You have to get I think certainly out of the 100 counties in North Carolina, 12 of them will deliver 50% of the vote. And those are the major urban counties. Mecklenburg home to Charlotte, Wake County, home to Raleigh, the state capital. But it's critical that within those urban counties, the suburbs within those urban counties are indeed the true battle grounds. Central City's like Charlotte and Raleigh, voted for Hillary Clinton to tow one in 2016. If you go to the surrounding suburban counties, Donald Trump won those counties to tow one in 2016. It's those urban suburbs that literally split 50 50 slight edge to Hillary Clinton and 2016. I'm going to be watching those to see if there's any slippage among the Republicans in those areas. And how deep is the margin in the surrounding suburban counties? Can Democrats eat into that Republican advantage? How fast is it growing? That is to say there are a fair number of voters today that there were unique there to 2016? There is and nearly two million new registered voters since 2016. So this state is continues to grow exponentially, as does our registered voter pool slightly over seven million registered voters so far, and out of that we already have nearly a million North Carolinians. You are registered voters who have requested an absentee by mail ballot that is unheard of in this state. So the interest in the enthusiasm is certainly through the roof here in North Carolina, so just looking at the real clear politics average of the polls, which is one way to look at it, it looks like it's like 1% for Biden right now in North Carolina, which is essentially a dead heat. Effectively. How do you play right now? Is it a dead he and it's really fighting over that very small number of people that are undecided. It truly is, you know, I heard one political consultants say if a candidate wins by more than 5% in the state, that's a landslide. And so Donald Trump won the state a little over 3.5% points. Thom Tillis in 2014 by a point and a half, so this is going to be a very tight election. It's all dependent upon again who shows up and how do the campaign's motivate and energize their respective basis. And what are the issues Because there's some speculation right now, with the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, that is really elevated the importance of the Supreme Court. Is that true in North Carolina, and if so, which way do you think it cut? Honestly, I think it's too early to determine that here in North Carolina, but I think the key voting bloc will be suburban women. How does the president's pick? Play to them. Are they willing to look past is other issues and concerns that they have about the president and vote purely on the court and the court nominee that he puts forward? I think that's just going to be the critical component white suburban women in those competitive battleground states of North Carolina. You mentioned Senator Tillis give us a sense of how that race is doing, because again, looking at the real clear politics average at least He's losing about 3.5%, which was probably within the margin of error. It is certainly within the margin of error. But interestingly he's playing behind the president's numbers here in the state, and early on, he made a concerted effort to tie himself to President Trump. When President Trump's approval ratings started to slip in this state, So too, did his numbers as well. So he needs to hope that this Supreme Court pick really energizes and pulls the base back to supporting him. Come November, 3rd, Okay, because they're really great to have you with us. It was very instructive. That's Professor Michael Bitzer of Catawba College coming up here, We're gonna take a look at how much political risk.

"Org slash forum or on our Facebook page or tweet us at K Q E D forum or just send us an Email forum at kqeDorg. So as we're talking about President Trump's got I want your thoughts on the national emergency. And he has vowed to veto if congress goes against it. And it looks like there enough Senate votes probably to make that happen. You've got rand Paul and Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and Thom Tillis need fifty one to pass. And at this point if you're the vote Connor it's likely to pass likely to be vetoed, though. We could never predict things I think that's pretty. Predictable but voting on border security on the wall are not predictable. Because here's the president again seeming almost mounting a campaign. I mean, not only Kristen Nielsen's testimony. But also, the president talking about being invaded again by drugs and human traffickers and criminals, and I was struck personally by clay Diggins remarks, Republican from Louisiana who's become a kind of spokesman for the Trump administration on the border and said every day is d day. Now, I mean that many invaders are coming into our country d day may not be the right metaphor for what we are seeing on the southern border. But we did get new numbers out from the customs and border protection just this week which showed a an ongoing surge in the number of illicit border-crossers, especially family members coming from Central America coming from the strife-torn regions and on us in Guatemala, El Salvador. Those numbers are. Up. There's there's no question now that we are seeing an increase in numbers. The other question to ask though is is the president's proposed expansion of the border wall an appropriate response to that. Because what we've heard one one border protection personnel. Another tell us is that the these families that are coming across the border aren't making any effort to evade capture to evade detection. They're turning themselves into the border patrol agents as soon as they cross. So whether a wall would make any difference in those circumstances, I think is is a very open question. But there, but we do now see some evidence to back up the administration's claim that there has been a surge in illegal border crossings the numbers are there. The the numbers are there to say this constitutes something different than just the status quo. Whether that's a security emergency, whether it's a humanitarian emergency what kind of emergency it constitutes. I think depends on your point of view. You, but we are seeing as you say a move among some Republicans a handful of Republicans in the Senate to challenge the president's authority to kind of overrule congress and his power of the purse, and and earmark this spending for his border wall. Senator Paul was the fifty first vote, and now that the that tipping point seems to have been reached. We may see a few other Republicans cross the cross the island, and and vote that way almost certainly not enough votes in either the house or the Senate to override a presidential veto. Everyone agrees is ultimately going to go to the courts. But I do think it's important as the courts way, the president's move here. And whether it's appropriate that congress is on record saying both houses of the house and the Senate are on record saying, we don't think this is an appropriate use of the president's authority. Can you imagine the pressure on these senators who've decided to go rogue on Trump? Well, Susan, Susan Collins Lisa Murkowski of had no no problem challenging the president in the past. Thom Tillis is. That's an interesting move by the Senator from North Carolina. We haven't seen him buck the White House, very often. And then rand Paul is kind of an idiosyncratic guy. He's he's obviously ran against the president in two thousand sixteen he has largely been aligned with the White House in in many areas, but he still has his his areas where he's willing to willing to buck. The party line tell you about a range of things with Scott Horsely. We'll get into some other matters where we'd like to hear your thoughts and your questions and so taking your calls again. The number to call is eight six six seven three three six seven eight six and we begin with win morning. Good morning with the worldwide focus on Trump and Kim in this Korean situation. Could you please comment on the role of the South Korean and Japanese governments in the process, and what is the hope of these governments and moving forward in? In some form of resolution of the Korean mishmash. What president moon in South Korea? I think has been very much a cheerleader for this new negotiation, and for you know, perhaps some mending of ties between north and South Korea. I think prime minister obey in Japan has been a little more skeptical of the whole process a little bit more skeptical of Kim Jong owns intentions, both Japan and South Korea course, key defense allies, the United States, and it's been interesting to hear President Trump continuing to complain about the cost of defending South Korea, and the cost of those twenty eight thousand troops that we maintain their. When he extended the moratorium on joint military exercises with South Korea. It was all seemed to be all about the economics of it rather than the the the last few involved, but the South Koreans, I think are very much interested in seeing some kind of deal here, the Japanese I think are more they're certainly open to to a deal that ensures nuclear safety, but they were certainly worried that for for instance, Trump might have come away from Hanoi with a deal that that dismantled North Korea's long range missiles, the ones that can strike the US, but didn't didn't protect Japan. So they were kind of skittish going into this all of them. I think are relieved that the president didn't give away the store. The South Koreans are more frustrated that talks are sort of on hold for the time. Being the missiles were talking about connection hit Denver now. I mean, we're not just talking about California. That's right. And since Denver's my hometown, that's. That's certainly a concern. Let me thank the caller. And let's go to another caller. That's you Kelly. You're on the air. Good morning. Hi, good morning. My question is regarding the border patrol numbers at the gentleman just cited regarding whether or not those numbers actually account in any way, or the numbers of asylum seekers who are being turned away from the legal processes. I guess I'm on the border either through unofficial intimidation or through the officials say Mexico policy and weather, a better approach to curbing illegal entries would be just to process asylum seekers the legal way that they've always been processed at the border. Is there any connection between the phenoms, quote, unquote, search that you're referencing and the intimidation and turning away of asylum-seekers? Well, I think I I haven't dug deeply into this. But I believe the way it works is if the asylum seeker makes it onto US soil than they are counted in those numbers, and if they are, you know, intimidated, discouraged, or for whatever reason don't cross the border and stay in. Do you wanna or in Juarez or wherever they may be on the Mexican side of the border, then they're not included in those numbers. So I think I think the number only counts those who are actually successful in getting a foot across the border onto US soil. That's there's no question that a big portion of that that that number is now central Americans, many of them in family groups and many of them claiming asylum for for fear of violence or persecution back home. And that does reflect a change from what we saw say around the to the year two thousand nine hundred eighty nine when we did see much higher overall numbers of born unauthorized border-crossers, but many more in those days were single people coming from Mexico and primarily to look for work. And the reason that's significant is that the options that are open to the US government for dealing with someone who crosses from Mexico and is looking for work versus a family crossing from Central America and seeking asylum. It's a it's a bigger burden on the authorities to deal with the family members coming and seeking asylum in the Obama administration. They were typically are released to await their asylum hearing and came into the interior of the United States. The Trump administration has tried to avoid that. That's why they've run all these complications with things like family separation. But because they're not simply. Allowing the asylum seekers to enter the US, and and hang out here during the months or even years, it might take to that have their asylum claim, processed, that's what's putting the real strain on the system. Let me thank you for the call Kelly, and since you mentioned the Obama administration the kind of an offbeat question from Rene. You don't have to answer this. You can take the fifth Rene says, I respect Scott's equanimity covering the White House. Did you this is a dress to you Scott ever consider quitting after transitioning from covering Obama to Trump? No, no. I I it's been a real privilege. I am actually going to be making a change. I'm going to be switching beats and a couple of weeks here and going to be moving over to covering the economy fulltime, but it has been privileged both to cover the Obama administration and the Trump administration. I think we we we play an important role holding whoever the president is accountable and Mike my colleagues will continue to do that. I'm sure aggressively. How you feel about moving in a different beat into a different beat. I am both. It's a little bittersweet I'm excited, but also a little bit. It'll be tough to leave a beat. I've come to know and certainly enjoy but I've been doing it for ten years. That's that's a long time. And it'll be good for me to explore some new challenges and probably good for our listeners to have some some fresh eyes and lungs and legs. Chasing after President Trump. I said trade was one of your strong suit. So that certainly ties into this move. I have to ask you though about covering the president because in the White House. I was gonna ask you, for example, about security clearances. I was talking about Kushner getting a security clearance, and we can talk about that and Flynn too. But you know, wondering why the president has to lie so much. I mean, it's an iguana me. And I know it is to you and you want to keep your equity here. But for example, it was clear that he could have X catheter said, you know, I want my son to have security clearance. And he didn't he said I had nothing to do with it. But he, of course, did have something to do with the a lot to do with it. So so here we have this story come out began with the New York Times and others have now match this that President Trump ordered that Jared Kushner is lobby granted a top secret clearance over the objection of the security professionals. There are only intelligence, but even people like Kelly exactly and and the White House counsel, then White House counsel, Don Mcgann who apparently felt strongly enough that both Kelly Ann Mcgann wrote sort of CYA memo to the file just to record their their concerns about this. And now we have a. And so, of course, there there are questions being raised and the the defense of the the administration has been well, the president has the absolute authority to grant security clearances to whomever. He wants no question about that. But if he didn't think there was anything wrong with it. Why didn't he just say that why did he and Kushner himself and Kushner's wife? The president's daughter Ivanka Trump all maintain that this security clearance was granted through ordinary processes when obviously it was it was granted because the president ordered it. He doesn't want to be charged with nepotism or something like that. I get I mean, I'm just making a wild guess here, but this has been characteristic behavior. But when when the president complains about the fishing expedition were all the questions that are being raised a lot of those questions could have been avoided had he simply spelled out the facts as we now know them to be in the first place when you when you evade when you've mischaracterized facts when you misrepresent things it naturally makes people suspicious and speaking about evasion and making peace Bill suspicious. What do you make out of the fact that you know? President Obama Beck in Sydney. President Trump back at twenty eleven was saying President Obama is not intelligent. We need to see his school records his academic records, and they have to be made public and they're not being made public. And now we have Michael Cohen saying I went after people not only in his college level, but back this military school, and there are records of his at have been essentially buried. Oh my goodness. In the the the stories that have come out just this week about the the length that the president and his supporters went to to bury his high school records. I mean, his his records from military school in upstate New York. As a as a teenager, you think what could possibly be in these records that would be so. So damaging to a business person or a future presidential candidate. You would go to those links to cover them up. Now, maybe it's just a natural penchant for secrecy. That comes for somebody like Donald Trump who's been running his own company. Who's had the had the ability to kind of do everything he wants in secret and his is still wrestling with the demands of transparency that come with serving as president nine states because she said it best a moment ago that like tax returns not being revealed arouses suspicion. Evasions by -solutely. What why would you go to such great lengths to conceal your own records?.

Thanks for coming on, sharing your views much. Thank you. When we come back more on those midterm elections, which is stronger the Republicans post cavenaugh bounds or the sustained democratic anger at President Trump panelists. Next as we go to break some of what I heard this week from voters on my trip out west Zona into that. Look at the people who are, you know doing these negative ads, and then I almost two point want to not vote for those people because of the tactics that they're using. Welcome back panelists here, Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson, Peggy Noonan us for the Wall Street Journal. NBC news, correspondent and host of MSNBC live my friend Katy Tur and David Brody cheap political analyst for CBS news. Welcome all. So trying to figure out what this poll which is showing us today in our new NBC Wall Street Journal poll. And let's put this sort of his put a little bit of historical context here, presidential jobber, provable connected to seats lost in the first midterm. We go back, here's President Trump sitting at forty, seven percent. That seems to be an improvement for him, but what would forty seven percent job rating mean in the past when it comes to midterm result? Well, President Obama had exactly that forty, seven percent job approval rating in two thousand ten. His party lost sixty three seats Bill Clinton in nineteen Ninety-four. In this same period of time in October, a forty eight percent approval rating and lost fifty four seats. So Peggy Noonan should Republicans feel better or worse. This morning when they look at the NBC news Wall Street Trump, I think they should feel as confused as everybody else. The goodness for Republicans is only six months ago. I think we were all talking about a Blue Wave that we knew was coming and was going to be very significant. We're not quite talking that way anymore. It looks kind of more interesting and complicated and state by state the continuing mystery that is not a mystery is how a president and ended ministration can have what is essentially peace and prosperity, or economic growth, and no new wars and still be struggling to get to fifty percent, which in the approval polls, which if you can't is a drag on all of here, people it just as the central fact..

"These are things that drive the message home. The Republicans can't win on those issues. So they get personal. I've talked to a lot of democratic activists this week in Nevada and air Zona a lot of democratic strategists, and a lot of them complained off the record about how Senate Democrats handled the Cavanaugh situation and they're upset because it impacted those races, both races have changed post Cavanaugh. What would you have done differently if you could do it again? That's a good question, but it tough one to answer. We were dealt cards in the Senate Judiciary committee. We never an -ticipant did the fact that there'd be a letter coming forward from Dr Ford, which eventually became public, which led to a hearing which we had not even planned. All of those things run for seeing. This was not some strategy that was laid out it unfolded this way we did the best we could under the circumstances. I still believe that we did the right thing voting against Brett cavenaugh for the supreme court. All right. I to move to the issue of the now debt confirmed dead journalist, Jamal koso- g the Saudi government after seventeen days. Now, confirming that, yes, he died at the hands of some Saudi intelligence agents. I got to put up the changing story from them, though. It's an amazing took them for a ten days. They were saying things like we're investigating. They're looking. He left the council it that was one of their first explanation saying this idea that Saudi Arabia was responsible that was baseless and false. Then. Last week they started working on a cover story. President Trump suggested rogue killers were to blame, and then finally, they claim it was essentially an accidental death as a result of some sort of brawl. Is there any part of this story that you accept his credible from the Saudi Arabian government. No. In fact, the only person on earth outside of the Saudi kingdom who appears to accept it is President Donald Trump. Here's what we ought to do, and we ought to do it tomorrow morning. We ought to expel formerly expelled the Saudi ambassador from the United States until there is a completion of third party investigation into this kidnap murder. God knows what followed that occurred in Istanbul. We should call on our allies to do the same unless the Saudi kingdom understands that civilized countries around the world are going to reject this conduct and make sure that they pay a price for it. They'll continue doing it. They have a fellow named Raif Badawi a journalist who's currently in prison for criticizing the Saudi regime. There's another man will lead care who's also facing prison and torture if necessary buy them unless he changes his criticism of gene, if we want them to stop this and make it clear, we don't accept it. We need to be decisive expelled that journalists stop our assistance to their war in Yemen. Let them know they're going to pay. A price. Do you believe the crown prince was ordered this killing Senator corker this morning says, he believes that the crown prince himself ordered this. I believe five of his top personal bodyguards or those among those currently accused in the eighteen his personal bodyguards and one of them said publicly a year ago, I don't move without an order from the executive, the crown, Princess fingerprints all over this and the fact that he is heading up the investigation makes it totally incredible. All right, Senator dick Durbin. I'm gonna leave it there. Senator appreciate your time and for coming on and sharing your, it's much appreciate it. Thanks, Chuck. Joining me now is the vice chair of the committee in charge of getting Senate Republicans elected or reelected. It's Thom Tillis of North Carolina Senator Tillis. Welcome back to the presser. Good morning. Let me start with the Saudi Arabia issue and the and the killing Mr. Kosova you probably may not have seen, but at least heard the the time line, it took the Saudi seventeen days. Same question that I had for Senator Durbin. Is there any part of the Saudi government's explanation that you find credible? No, not at this point. I agree with everything. Dick Durbin. I said, we've, we've gotta get to the bottom of it and Saudi Arabia. You do not do something of this magnitude without having clearance from the top. We need to find out who that is and hold them accountable. Are you is convinced as senators corker in Durban are as just that that the crown prince himself ordered this killing..
