First night of Democratic National Convention Round-Up
"Democratic Party opened its quadrennial convention Monday night with two hours of virtual programming. was, a mix of speeches by high profile political figures, messages from ordinary Americans interview segments, news ICAL interludes. Kim Any any general impression that hit you from the first night. Well to General Impressions. The first is that we have now gone a completely to the point where conventions are what everyone feared they are, which is that they are giant infomercials you know, and that's been pretty obvious for a number of cycles that the business of conventions has become almost an afterthought and it's really about. Presenting these people in pitching for the party out there with the nation and that you're not having anything in per a person all you had was this long stream of folks talking that was very much like an extended again campaign commercials. So that was noticeable. I think that the other major impression is that Democrats are not going to be running. All on an agenda, this year anything to do with their policies for me. What I saw in this range of speakers talked they they spanned the entire Party spectrum but they all had the same themes which is at Donald. Trump is horrible. He has mismanaged the Cova crisis and his character is terrible and therefore this is a referendum on him. Starting with the first of those points, I? Mean it's been a long time since the last contested convention the last convention where delegates went in truly not knowing who the nominee was going to be though every four years it seems like political fanatics think this year could be the year but I agree with Kim bill that it was particularly obvious this year because of the format that there's really nothing going on except commercials here I mean, what do you make of the format? It was more of A. A A variety show in the typical convention, a short speech, and then you had a a soccer star interviewing health workers. There were quicker quicker cuts between segments. So maybe that's more engaging in a an attention span challenged age, but you sort of lose the energy of having a stadium full of people cheering their brains out. Yeah. Absolutely. Cut Look in fairness to them. This is something very new. You know they've had to improvise no one's done it before. So it's easy to make fun of them, but I think the problem is. It was pretty boring I felt as though I was watching a PBS telethon over some issue where various people would come on to lecture me about something and that's partly due to the format. You know when you go to a convention like you said, there's nothing like a room it's usually a stadium or a basketball arena full of cheering people you know gives you a lot of energy in all the it's all about fun and access you have people dressed up and crazy outfits, and so forth you know all completely partisan. Convention everyone's on the same side and the purposes to generate some enthusiasm I thought this was really odd. I without without Joe Biden, you know it's not. it's not typical to hear from the presidential nominee until the end, right. So that's but usually you see pictures of sitting in his seat with his family watching you know watching the proceedings cheering along at different people I thought of all the speakers. you know Muslim seem pretty angry I get that you know the campaign strategy is to blame Donald Trump for all the cova deaths and and that's the way they think their ticket is but I I don't think they have to be quite as angry because anger to me doesn't denote confidence and I think Joe Biden would be better to be a little more cheerful and the the people like that around and to be the Joe Biden that debated Paul Ryan. For example and I think did very well I'm not sure we saw that last night even Michelle. Obama you know she talked about going high but then sort of implied that people who disagreed with their did. So because she were as she was African, American I didn't really think that was a high note whereas Amy Klobuchar who got no attention I thought she gave a good convention speech was witty. It was cheerful and it was confident. But of course, no one. Really spoke of her contribution Kim. What else is missing this year if you've been to these conventions, many listeners probably haven't. They used to experiencing is just the big speeches on TV with lots of applause of lots of canned jokes can lines what what's the experience like being there that that's missing this year. A couple of things you know the real merit of a of a convention for both parties is that it's a great big party in the biggest sense of the word is the one time. Every four years were every political figure up ballot in down ballot in the party is all present in one place and so it's is a great opportunity. Especially, if you're a member of the media you would traditionally go out and you just bump into these folks and they have some interesting idea or something and you you end up writing about it, getting it, and so it's a place where. You get really get your hands on the mood within the Party and the issues and the ideas that are driving the party and the Internet rivalries. If there are any just not getting that this year and as a result it, I think the entire media coverage of the convention is is pretty hand because it's essentially about this lineup of speakers and you've missed any of the impromptu aspects of a convention that come from people being together. I think the other thing is that it also allows the party and this is a a detriment in my mind to the American public. It is allowed the party at least Democrats to to squelch any dissent or at least any public displays of stent. Usually when you go to these events, there are dissenters within the party they go down on the floor during the the discussions about the platform and they they disagree that this was in there that was in there Democrats went to A. Lot of effort to make sure that wasn't a theme that nothing like that could happen at this event and it would be hard to anyway because of the way of the format but Tom Perez, for instance, had the entire platform button-down and so for instance, nobody saw the fact that representative Rashida Labe who's one of the squad? She's a Democrat from Michigan. Voted no on the democratic platform on Saturday. As she was casting her vote from the DNC ballot because it didn't include a plan for single payer healthcare and if that kind of fight had happened in person at a convention, there might have been some legs to it. You might have had more of the progressives revolting but because all of this is being managed over zoom and and they know that there isn't much an opportunity to to to really get a movement going most people have just you know saluted and voted for the things that the party told him to vote for. So you're not seeing the traditional floor fights.
Congressional Democrats Threaten To All Wear Same Color If Trump Loses Election And Refuses To Leave Office
"President. Trump is once again threatening to delay the election today trump is publicly questioned voting methods especially, mail-in ballots, which could see record use during the coronavirus pandemic and his posturing has caused concern that if he loses the election, he may go so far as to dismiss the results altogether and refused to step down for more we're joined by OPIE are super senior. Political correspondent Dirk pollens I leslie great to be here. All right settle down. So Derek, it sounds like the twenty twenty presidential election could be in for some problems. That's right. Leslie. But the left says they have a plan earlier today congressional Democrats threatened that if trump loses the election refuses to leave office, they'll have no choice but to all wear the same color. Certainly, a big step for the Democrats, well so far it's only a threat but California representative, Simon, Mills explained to me this morning. It's one that his party is prepared to follow through on President. Trump is a grave threat to our democracy. If he thinks he can lose the election in November and then stay in office anyway the Democrats will be his worst nightmare will. Wear clothing of similar hugh from head to toe for as long as it takes till he steps down quite a forceful aesthetic showing and had the Democrats agreed on the color they're going to wear actually leslie that's still matter of fierce debate while many Democrats favor black to symbolize the death of democracy others want to wear white for peace or blue because the moderate blue. Dog Democrats. Think it looks Nice on everyone for his part representative mills is part of caucus arguing for yellow we want everyone to wear yellow because it's a color of optimism and also DNC Chairman Tom Perez, thinks it will send a strong message to Republicans by photographing well, when trump sees all sitting in Congress wearing are yellow close he'll have no choice but to honor. The peaceful transfer of power. Some political experts predict your party could win control of the Senate, as well as maintaining control of the House that affect your strategy at all. It certainly will dirk if we have the Senate and the House that will give us even more power to all wear the same pin we'll have a pin wearing majority in both houses well, but of Course Washington can be a place of a lot of talk and no action or the Democrats really prepared to go as far as pin wearing it sounds like it leslie here Simon Again the Democrats. Have a message for president trump dark. Can you give this message to President Trump? What can't you Mr President if you try to stay in the white? House after losing the. Election, we will hold you accountable with powerful hashtags and strongly worded up tweets making you're refusing to leave a major wedge issue in the twenty twenty, two midterms we'll keep it up your entire second term if we have to. Wow, that will surely make very confrontational press conference. Oh God do you think we'll have to do press conferences? I don't know don't you think that? Might be viewed too combative. Well, it's either that or trying to win over the army. Oh Gino, we could also do we could not do anything all we won't do or say anything we'll call it democracy blackout that sounds pretty powerful imagine how fast trump will step down once he sees we're not doing anything at all. That's a fantastic idea. Can we end the? Interview I have to tell Nancy Mills added that the Democrats also vowed to impeach trump again with the exact same case in evidence they used last time just to see if it
The DNC and RNC are going virtual. What can we expect?
"So actually the coronavirus pandemic everything has gone virtual. We covered all digital conferences like Tho- launches, apples, WDC. In DNC are completely different animals Taco bell expecting to see well I. Think it's GonNa be a very, highly produced. Event just like it normally is but it's GonNa be really different because you know when they. When they usually do this, you've got like thousands of people in a huge arena you know you have people talking. And they're they're mostly talking to the to the people, the viewers and the audience. Sitting at home on their couches. Anyway. But you have that vibe you have that you know the people cheering it's it's like being in a live sporting event in a sense you know so like that's going to be lost a bit. Yeah. We've we've had instances with like the the NBA right they put up digital boards with with people that are virtually in I've watched the most games. It's definitely not. It doesn't really replicate the feeling of being at a game where the ambiance there I imagine a lot of the energy that would have been in those conferences have people been there. Is really kind of sucked away, right? Yeah and you know and that's really political conventions are basically like cheerleading events right? You know it's like the party faithful as there you've got these delegates from all around the country they're like really Gung Ho for their party and their candidate and they wanna like. You know just cheer their heads off and it's you know. So you know I think that energy is going to be a bit different but I'm also curious to see like what creative things they come up with right like like you mentioned the NBA thing like like are they going to do something like that? You know I mean? It'll be interesting to see how they approach it. Yeah. Have you got any kind of indication on on what they might do to create that excitement that is would be missing from having all those folks there. Yeah. So the the DNC they they have been, they've definitely said that they are going to try to involve people like regular everyday people. So I'm wondering if it is going to be something NBA like right where they have screens. Right there. But we'll definitely be having some like. Some people getting beamed in from all across the US whether it's you know. Politicians or or just SORTA your regular everyday folks who are like either live on video and a lot of like these pre produced videos people have been they've had this campaign where people are able to. Send in their videos like with prompts like I know Joe and talk about like why they're excited about Joe Biden and that kind of thing. So they're going to have that SORTA interspersed throughout the program. So it'll be interesting to see like how it all Kinda comes together. To DNC specifically, what what is that? GonNa look like will anyone actually be in Milwaukee? So there will probably be like a skeleton kind of crew in Milwaukee like I've heard that that Tom Perez, who's the chairman of the DNC was still planning to go to Milwaukee to gavel in the convention officially. But the big speakers you know like Joe Biden, who's the presumptive nominee he is not going to be there he's going to be somewhere in Delaware. Now, they've said he's not probably going to do it from his basement. So some place else in Delaware. In the Wilmington area where he lives. So that'll be interesting. I wonder how they they might dress up whatever venue he's in. You know like he was speaking with. Kamala Harris. You know the other day they've had actually a couple of speaking engagements and they've got the flags everywhere but like the backdrop didn't really look all that interesting to me. So it'll it'll I wonder how they're going to you know jazz it up so that it looks cool. How's the Brokaw can work? Yeah. So the roll call and by the way like I got to go to the convention in two, Thousand Sixteen, the roll call is pretty cool. Just in general when you're there in the room, there's like this vibe all the people stand up and they say, you know I'm from South Carolina and they were the whatever state and we pledge our ex delegates to. And so it's like an exciting moment. So it's going to be totally different this time 'cause they're all not going to be in the room but I you know they've said they're. GonNa. Kind of pop around all all the states and so you're probably going to have people from those states. Doing their call and I'm sure they're gonNA do something jazzy about like. You know I'm from Delaware. So it's like Delaware the first state in the nation. Allah. Probably say something like that I don't know. So it'll. We'll see. We'll see what about the NC I know there was a lot of back and forth about where was gonna be in whether it was go digital What is that GonNa was so that you know I think that's still to be determined right? Like they're still they haven't put out a whole lot of information about like what it's GonNa look like exactly. So I mean I want I wonder if some of this might change in the next week but. So far they are. Going to have a very reduced crowd in Charlotte. President trump will not be there to accept the nomination. In they're gonNa have like something like you know three hundred or so delegates there. So you know I don't know I don't know if they're going to try to do some things kind of like in in the arena although I think that would look pretty. bleak. If it's people, you know space really far apart. So I think that's still Kinda to be determined with what they're going to be doing it wear for folks who are watching these where can you check out the streams? So the DNC they've announced a whole bunch of places like you're gonna be able to stream, it live on youtube and facebook and twitter and And then the convention is officially you know airing from nine to eleven every night and all the broadcast channels will have it for the last hour. And and then they're gonNA have it on like TV and Roku and so they were going to be a lot of opportunities for people to stream it or. Even, to SORTA catch it on the networks got looking at some of the other challenges I mean we talked a little bit about the lack of energy. But what are the potential pitfalls who going virtual? Yeah. Well I mean we've all been watching. You know some of these cable news shows lately right like in sometimes you get like the guests who are like pixellated or their screen freezes. You know so I think that's going to be a challenge. You know you don't want somebody to be mid-sentence and all of a sudden they're face completely frees up. So that'll be a challenge. Yasser. Don't want it to look like a really boring call. With. With everybody with the bookcase in the background. So I think they'll have to figure out ways to to make it look interesting and you know. And not have any sort of technical glitches.
Protests and riots continue across the country
"Hunter show we're talking about what everybody's talking about the riots what to do to stop him no dialogue there's no discussion until the riots and many way shape or form and this is how insidious the antifa mutants are they knew it thank you the nation was United in disgust at the video of the killing of George Floyd things could have been done it really could have been done but and even doesn't want things done they want to destroy the N. T. FOR that has been built up and defended by the left wing media and ignored or cheered on by Democrats they wanted to destroy and they did it they did you can say they agitated but they didn't make anybody smash a window they smashed windows other people piled thrown stole stuff from the apple store so all the good will that was there and all the momentum to actually do something it was destroyed was just and that's what they want they don't want people getting along the left doesn't want people getting along well after what he doing we talking about why you quit Democrats well Keith Ellison member Keith Ellison who is a member of Congress from Minnesota he was the number two guy at the democratic national committee's Democratic National Committee vice chair he ran for chairman he lost to Tom Perez he was vice chair he is now Attorney General of the state of Minnesota he is a proud supporter of antifa he's also a proud supporter of Louis Farrakhan what what do you think you're gonna get when you elect that let's go to Alex in Baltimore Alex thanks for holding welcome Hey I didn't really talk about anti fur over real quick you go back and look at all the people that interacted over the years especially the inauguration antifa whiskey off in DC people if people are released they're they're let off of charges so a lot of yeah so there's a lot of a lot of support all the charges and all the arrests on inauguration day and all the stores smashed in the cars burned all the charges were dropped eventually into right away because there would have been angered by like what the hell you mean you're not going to charge these people they charge him and then when they thought people would be enough time had passed and people weren't looking they grab the churches don't always what I what I wanna make two points first of all this is gonna sound we're taking tacky but this isn't really a protest you know protest isn't in the constitution you look at what it says it says you have it you can reach out to Mando government a redress of grievances what is that mean it means you can also send me details okay okay but you know if you're not going to the legislators with legislation stating what you want and it's not really a protest going on young at cops I hate you it's not gonna change anything and are stupid people in this country that really think something's going to come from that you need if if there's something to be changed it got to be done to the law otherwise it's not a standard that we can uphold right so and the other thing I want to talk about you got guys like Tony and there was an African American gentleman I didn't catch is intro but our service members service members not Fred and you feed the attitude there the servicemembers said you mentioned and just what you mentioned in the intro here you mentioned that Antipolis breaking the windows and the guy said you were you brought up the looting and he said well it's white people breaking the windows what are black people supposed to do and then you mentioned black on black crime he said well that's why people give and god you know there's no there's the added to that black people don't have any agency that they can't possibly make decisions for themselves and therefore they can't be held accountable you know uncomfortable conversations Cody wants to have uncomfortable conversations I'm looking at FBI crime statistics right now from the last twenty years okay and I'm not talking about per capita total killings it over to one every year black people killing white people over white people killing black people and then when you take into account that they're only thirteen percent of the population and we've all we've been over sixty percent the last twenty years you realize that the rate is eight to one you know we have that conversation or is that racist the ADL says if you've mentioned that if you mention that constituted different across different races you're racing so we're we're not allowing ourselves to have a real conversation that need to be set when these rights happen the next day you shouldn't be able to protest because like I said they're not really asking for anything specific I we know black lives matter we know if George Ford name okay but what change is gonna come from that one of the laws we can pass and and what can we do and as far as eighty four trump's been such a disappointment I really think that that declaration of that being a terrorist organization will be refunded before the election if not it within the week well he has to make it first he hasn't he the president any disappointment in this too but the the responsibility for situations like this doesn't really rest with the president of the United States he he is you know he's the guy the local authorities and then the state authorities and then if they ask for federal help then the federal government immediately short of declaring martial law the president can can't do a lot but he should be saying things a rather long just tweeting things there's rumors that there's going to be at an address today but we'll see the the executive order on censorship real quick with my last point he should have been all that many of the social media companies and get away with being a publisher and a platform and executive order he did sort of almost motivates them to be a publisher which is going to lead to more censorship of the occasion hold and then as a platform that's what we want that that way no American can be denied access and it doesn't if you take the responsibility off of the social media companies then they have no excuse to censor people he did the opposite as well what will happen what could happen and it's got to be changed by law not by statute completely to be fully effective but what would happen is a couple of lawsuits lost would cause them to have to make an uncomfortable choice and that uncomfortable choice would likely lead to them going back to being a platform and and that's that's this step bid there was there's no way the president can act and get it all the way around the bases on his own it takes legislation legislation is being drafted but the house Democrats are never going these are their donors these are the people that they support they're never going to allow it to happen but next time Republicans are in charge maybe something will happen but it's also possible that much squishy Republicans won't do anything about it anyway Eddie in Atlanta thanks for calling in any here are your core let United healthcare plan it could have been stopped on Friday after protesters I've with there and sports physical stuff goes out over the falls in the broadcast in long enough for me to hear one line from the woman is free but far fairer for Daniel Farke is you should white people have the effective gains so basically that that kind of day you'll going on down there when the framers are with their permit was over with our mayor put police off a bicycle as the first or in line at the CNN building police officer were thrown to the ground by I white woman in a white man and he got up off the ground and the police did nothing I come alive after they wanna burn the city down you watch and it went from that to three in the emissary spray paint everything but not windows and then from there they started well Hey if they don't let us have free reign here so they started busting all the cars that meet certain party everything they are mayor get on TV at ten o'clock and said y'all just need to go home well you know she's not quite helpful future bottoms of these people were too busy having fun born in the town down but they're not they're stealing TV's they're not watching TV either at his house I think they're going to zero in on TV yeah and basically the keeper of please get rid of the master barbers down there the state troopers were down there and nobody did nothing they just let him into it and it's just like a kid if you say your this is very important the police on the grounds that you're violating the law get out of the street okay and then the police to come down there to vote thanks same street as always they won't get a credit down here in the whole thing started because people are blocking traffic and you know ratcheting it up you know they like every fifteen to trample people out of cars and stuff you have to stop stuff like this when it starts right as it starts or you're not gonna be able to stop it that's why they are mayor of DC the mayor of DC setting an eleven PM curfew okay that's really late and stupid but it didn't matter because until at least two thirty in the morning they were marching around smashing and looting they still were in Georgetown they were smashing and looting and beating up store owners who are trying to protect their property so if you have an eleven PM curfew and it doesn't mean anything then what's the point of the curfew it's failed leadership R. block is is saying that the the the everything is been messed up by the police the police are the ones that have sparked the violence which is not not true they've please send anything yeah the wealth the Huffington post had a thing I try to find it but it was their headline was police turned violent or something like that police turned violent against protesters like the right now I'm listening to you it's because they've turned out to be as they enter the comedy store but there's no news on there anymore during the day they are I was so embarrassed by that the networks ABC CBS the local affiliates here thank you well we don't do this in Atlanta this is not it Lana and they were just very code everything is so pathetic in the M. at one point one I got himself I believe in buying the place this is all well maybe I didn't say that right you know yeah the slip but yeah the the headline in the Huffington post yesterday was copper age colon police violence nationwide and there's pictures of riders okay okay yeah Rosenstein's report if you know any fourth of ten thirty and it's not a qualified so maybe they'll get serious after fever come to town tomorrow to go to work what's it feel like tomorrow you start putting that very well in there and they still didn't do anything they start the place started closed down but nothing happened it's very simple you have a friend with north south east and west for most of March and then you close in just like you did when you got it got scrapped the rob a bank is in the works and then you and then you just arrested and taken to jail get him off the street yep particular you know what to do any needs the people in leadership down I appreciate the phone call stay safe in Atlanta and keep listening to my radio sucks compared to this anyway let's go to Tim and hands into him hello yes it was terrible what happened at man but the looting this takes away from the whole calls on it and Nancy said it's opportunism masking as outrage it really is they have left wing agitators know exactly what to do they do this for a living they did they did they practice constantly up in Portland for the entirety of the trump administration every weekend in Portland there days over every week they have a day of rage where they they harass people they beat on cars as they drive past they get really angry they destroy things every once in awhile and the mayor of there lets it go and it doesn't make the national news because it's Democrats doing the Democrats are gonna are gonna criticize their base they've got the vote of the people in the street white black doesn't matter they got their vote they're not going to criticize and they don't have to criticize and there is no amount of destruction that can cause them to go Hey wait a second we probably shouldn't be doing this it's it's O. K. blue let it go

"tom perez" Discussed on Amanpour
"Now. Some of that. Some of changing the world revolves around elections. Right elections do matter so as criticism of president trump mouths. The Democratic Party is putting on a united front house speaker. Nancy Pelosi launched a blistering attack on Tuesday saying that trump is causing unnecessary deaths and an economic disaster. Senator Elizabeth Warren has now joined President Obama and Senator Bernie Sanders endorsing Democratic nominee. Joe Biden Obama focused on leadership skills saying his former. Vp has what it takes to deal with this pandemic. Tom Perez is chair of the Democratic National Committee. And he's joining me now. Welcome to the program. Tom Perez and I want to just stop by asking. You guess you know what this idea that. The Democratic Party is now really united. How is not going to play out in a situation? Where campaigning fundraising? All of? That is so difficult to to achieve in a quarantine world. I really believe Cristiana that our unity is always been our greatest strength and Donald Trump's worst nightmare and look at where we are right now in the presidential race. We had roughly two dozen candidates get in the race every single one of them said. I'm in it to win it and I don't win it. I will support the nominee. And that's exactly what has happened now. Everybody coming together around our presumptive front runner nominee Joe Biden and the unity of values that we are showing. I applaud Senator Sanders. Who's strong endorsement is critical and Senator Warren? Today as you correctly point out yes. We have a global pandemic so we are changing our tactics. But we're not changing our goals. We WE'VE TALKED. Eight thousand digital organizers in the last three or four weeks we continue to do that we continue to build up in these battleground states. We have laid a foundation that enables us to communicate with voters. No we're not knocking on doors. That's for sure. But we're communicating through alternative means and the energy is out there. We just saw it and Wisconsin earlier this week where we scored some really important victories there in the momentum. I think is on our side in very real ways. People want leadership in this country. Who's looking out for them? They want competent. Leadership this president has been an abject. Failure is chronically ineffective. He's making matters worse by the day. People are seeing that dump raise. Of course he does. He is the president. He isn't incumbent. And he has all the advantages of that plus the daily White House as they call it the bully pulpit where he's very prominent and all over everybody's television screens and he has. I mean continuing China conversation. He has put out videos. You saw trying to attach Joe Biden to China and trying to portray Joe Biden as weak on China. Now obviously the fact checkers looks up and found a load of inaccuracies and false edits and all the rest of selective editing. But it's it's happening and it's happening in full view of of a captive audience. That trump has joe Biden. Doesn't well the thing is every time he speaks? He puts his foot in his mouth. He has violated every principle of crisis. Management you speak clearly. You speak compassionately speak accurately. He says I am in charge. I can do anything. I want something like that the other day that is chronically inaccurate. He says this is under control. We still don't have enough people. We we are nowhere near the rest of the world on testing. And let me get to the China Question Cristiana because it's really important. The chronic failure of this administration to act during the months of January and February and early March have wreaked havoc on the United States and what is increasingly clear. Is that one of the reasons. He was reluctant to act in January. Is They were negotiating a trade agreement with China. You didn't want to offend China. He actually spoke glowingly of China in January because that trade agreement trumped all of the concerns about the pandemic that had found its ways. It's way to our show are so when you're talking about who was soft on China. It was this president's pursuit of this trade agreement that blinded him to the pandemic. That was being that was arriving on our shores that he had been warned about repeatedly and has speaker. Pelosi correctly pointed out. The failure to act promptly has resulted in loss of lives absolutely tragically preventatively. And and of course Joe. Biden's team you all point out that he actually did take quite a firm hand in terms of leadership and how he would deal with the Chinese leadership during one of the last democratic debates that was on February twenty fifth which is going to play this exit. And here's the deal. I would be on the phone with China and making it clear we are going to need to be in your country. You have to be open. You have to be clear. We have to know what's going on. We have to be there with you and insist on it and sister insisted insists so sorry top. Raise this leadership issue and you can comment on that and then I want to play something. That President Obama said about this during his endorsement Cristiana. I had the privilege of having a front row seat to governance as as the Labor Secretary in the United States and before that leading the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department. I saw Joe Biden firsthand. I worked within firsthand one of the many reasons. Why Joe Biden is going to win in November is he can restore the global respect for the United States. He understands China. He has met more with she than than trump has. He knows what to do with China. He knows how to bring the world together. He has done it. He knows all of these world leaders on a first name basis. The global community is absolutely waiting for leadership to return in the United States. That is Joe Biden. I've seen it front close and personal and I know he is going to do a spectacular job. So let me just play this little bit of a sound bite from President Obama's endorsement now. Because I want to. I want to talk about the content. Of what what he's just saying here. Joe Has the character and the experience to guide us through one of our darkest times and he'll us through a long recovery and I know he'll surround himself with good people experts scientists military officials who actually know how to run the government and care about doing a good job running the government. So look you've just said about restoring respect etc. President Obama is is alluding to the fact that it's a known leader needed in a time of national and international crisis. But as you know people like Senator Sound US Senator Warren Alexandria Okaz Your Cortez. They want more. It's not about just going back to the status quo ante of the Democratic Party. They want a lot more in the progressive vein that they brought millions of people out during the campaign. So where does what's going to happen. In that regard Joe Biden wants more to and again I worked with him had a front row seat. Joe Biden is a dreamer and a doer. He Dreams in America where everybody has access to healthcare and he has a very aggressive plan to build upon the affordable. Care Act and get us to the point where every single person in. This country has access to quality affordable healthcare. Joe Biden has a plan and he's worked very closely with Senator Sanders to ensure college affordability. He's been a good listener to folks. He understands that. Equality is one of the abiding challenges of our time and what happens during a recession in? This may be more than a recession. Is that recessions exacerbate inequality because the folks who are already struggling end up bearing the brunt of this and Joe Biden understands that the people who've been suffering and that is why Joe Biden isn't looking to return us to something of yesterday. He is working to return us to the values that have always inspired us the values of inclusion and opportunity. But he knows that we must do better. This isn't simply a third term of Barack Obama. This is about moving forward and building on successes we've had but continuing the ball movement forward on paid leave on college affordability on healthcare on national security unpreparedness. All of these things a dreamer to do. Or that's the JOE by nine now. Just very quickly the stats. Show that people under forty five. The millennials the supporters and Bernie Bros. And all the rest of it. I'm still not getting on board. What are you going to have to do to convince them? What is he going to have to convince them? Well we're working hard to earn every vote and actually when you look at the polling the exit polling from all of the the primaries early on especially on on Super Tuesday which was the first Tuesday in March overwhelming numbers of Democrats. Even though they were supporting a host of different candidates. Said we're GONNA come together and support. Whoever our nominee is senator sanders full throated endorsement of the vice president? Senator Warren and we will work to earn the support of people like Congresswoman Cossio. Cortez's such an important part of our coalition. We're building this coalition everywhere and we will work with everyone and I need to ask you this. Obviously because it's a story in newspapers on the allegations by a woman called Tara Reid who accuses the vice president of sexual assault in the ninety s when she worked in the Senate Office. Obviously the campaign is denying it. What and how are you going to deal with these allegations particularly metoo world? Well listen every time. Somebody makes an allegation of this nature. They should be taken seriously. They should be treated with respect and the vice president and his team have said exactly that I welcome a full review of this at the same time. I've known this Vice President now for twenty five years I know the work he has done on things like the violence against Women Act. I have seen the work. He has done to make sure that everybody every woman in this country every person in this country is treated with respect and dignity. He has denied these allegations. Very very vigorously and frankly. I believe in. I know the Joe Biden who has worked his tail off throughout his career and That's the Joe Biden and the American people will make that judgment and I think they are going to conclude. The Joe Biden is the man of character in respect who has worked to enable women to realize the American dream in this country. Can I ask you finally because this is really important for November in terms of voting? Whether you might need to have a lot of absentee ballots and a lot of you know you never know what the situation is going to be in November. So I know. The Democratic Party was kind of upset by what happened in Wisconsin nonetheless. You got some of the results that you want there. But president trump said to Fox and friends on March thirtieth that a democratic proposal to add funding for voting by mailing in the krona relief. Bill was crazy. Said they had things levels of voting. That if you ever agree to it you'd never have a republican elected in this country again. Are you concerned about potential suppress? No vote not able to have an alternative to in-person lining up at A. You know at a at a polling booth. Listen we weren't kind of mad at what happened in Wisconsin we were. We were absolutely spitting nails. What happened in Wisconsin wasn't unconscionable the Republicans that was voter suppression on Steroids? It's one thing to enact voter. Id Laws and voter purges. Those are undemocratic unconstitutional there unlawful. That un-american it's another thing to force people to put their own lives in jeopardy to exercise the right to vote and that is why Democrats and I would note. Cristiana Republican Governors Ohio in Iowa New Hampshire Republican governors in these States and Republicans elsewhere have said that vote by mail should be a viable alternative. This November we need to give voter's choice this November vote. If you WANNA vote early. Vote absentee do that if you want to vote at the polls or or early vote do that. That's the choice. We need Tom. Press thank you so much indeed for joining US chair of the DNC. Thank you very much. And now to the state that has started returning it's ventilators to the federal stockpile Washington state in late January. It reported the first case of Corona virus in the United States and the governor. Jay inslee acted early. Placing restrictions on mass gatherings later closing all schools bars and restaurants..
Democratic Party postpones presidential nominating convention
"Is that the Democratic National Convention schedule for mid July in Milwaukee has been not cancelled but postponed until the week of August seventeenth Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett who's been of course one of the the leading driving forces behind try to get the convention to Milwaukee he's going to be addressing what this means Erekle step back at the NCO he Tom Barrett's get ready to speak but it's not he's not quite set yet well if they're allowing everyone to either this is the new normal now where we have these zoom meetings and everything so they're allowing everyone to get to the place he is currently sitting in his living room I can see him looking at his phone but he has not yet spoken yet a lot of questions about what's going to happen here Jeff it sounds like a ccording to the DNC statement from earlier today they will have the Wisconsin center district they will have hotels available they will have the Fiserv form to use but still a lot of questions and a lot of fluidity as to whether or not all of that is open we shall see well well yeah and then then of course there's there's the practical situations of what what about people's psyches I mean as as I was talking about your typically delegates pay their own way so my my guess is you have a lot of the people who are potential delegates party activists who have been caught up in again everything that's going on in the economy R. okay got it here we go here comes the mayor yeah it's a convention that was originally scheduled for July thirteenth through the sixteenth as we move to the week of August seventeenth I consider this extremely good news and I think it's a sign of how sensitive the Democratic National Committee is to that health needs not only of our of our residents but the health needs of people throughout this nation I think we all recognize that increasingly it looks more and more difficult for us to host this convention during the week of July thirteenth through the sixteenth but in my conversations that I've had with the comfort with the delegation and with that outcome convention organizers excel as well as my can conversations with chairman Tom Perez it was always clear to me that they are committed to nominating the next democratic presidential nominee here in the city market and I think that this announcement today underscores their commitment to doing that I think it's also extremely important because at a time where we are navigating the most tumultuous public health issue we have faced in our lifetime increasingly one of the most precarious economic situations we are in bed hopefully and I say this with a great deal of hope that by mid August that this will serve as a very very important shot in the arm for our local businesses so that they can X. expect to have visitors here how many visitors we don't know how many days the convention we don't know but I think what really allow this to happen again was a recognition by the Democratic National Committee and time president Joe somebody said particular it was very very important to remain committed to Wisconsin to be remain committed to Milwaukee and because they know we've got a lot of work say no that this is something it's important to us I would say this at the local level as excited as we have been we continue to be very excited about hosting this convention over the last month month and a half our city resources and I think IT resources throughout this community have been committed to dealing with the cold with nineteen crisis and become current economic crisis that it's developing in other words it's exciting is we've been about the convention it immediately got moved to the back burner but it never got taken off I never got taken off the stole and it's gonna remain on the back burner in terms of what we're doing right now in trying to address the public health crisis and deal with the economic crisis but by having this additional month of breathing room we are hoping that this will allow us then to pivot once we're moving out of these turbulent waters and use this as a very very important shot the iris I set that up to moving the community forward so again I've had conversations with German president conversations with Joe Solmonese with right elbow moderates in the host committee and I know that they've reached our device reform to this concert center district to others in the community to make sure availability it was something that we can work with and everyone we've talked to has been very very accommodating I'm very thankful for that obviously they're going to have to be somebody just listener being made along the way but this is a challenging time and I think what you saw here was a a commitment to the process of commitment to the community and a commitment to public health and I'm happy about all three of those very very much so there's any questions I'm happy at Juventus mayor Barrett holding his briefing from his living room to all the news agencies there yes as you heard it there Jeff the death of Democratic National Convention will now be held on August seventeenth in Milwaukee August seventeenth one month back from when it originally was supposed to be in July here in the city but you know in Iraq I think interestingly the word that the mayor used that I think people need to be aware of the issues fluid it is a under understandably it's a fluid sort of situation and I think what you're going to see S. time with what this was was an opportunity to to buy time to figure out you know where we are and but my guess is my guess is there's been no commitment at this point in time you know no certainty as to what exactly is it going to look like and I think that's a reasonable position we just you know who who knows exactly where we're going to be it two months from now but it is interesting to me that we're seeing so many of these dominoes already fall over for events in June and now July and now we know we're we're getting into August to me this makes eminent sense you hope that they're able to pull off something like this because again it's gonna be huge economic shot in the arm to Milwaukee and we're going to need an economic shot in the arm all ages they I mean they're still so many questions regarding the security the hotels the venues the entertainment the number of people in the the number of media that will be allowed to come in for this I mean we're talking about hotels in medicine and in Illinois some of these folks of that that's going to be a huge adjustment and I mean I assume that a lot of those hotels there's weddings generally in August the state state fair ends August sixteenth this is supposed to start the seventeenth so we are very very
Chryl Laird, "Steadfast Democrats: How Social Forces Shape Black Political Behavior"
"I'm Jen Taylor skinner. And this is the electorate on this episode. I have a conversation with Cheryl Laird. Shirl laird is a professor and political analyst who specializes in race and ethnic politics and political psychology and she joins me to discuss new book titled Steadfast Democrats. How SOCIAL FORCES SHAPE BLACK POLITICAL BEHAVIOR? She Co authored the book along with Ishmael White and if they analyze historical data to better understand why black Americans by far the most unified racial group in American politics and our conversations share laird and I draw parallels to the historical examples from the book and we correlate them to more recent political events. Like of course the Democratic primaries instance. This is a book that I personally will have to read more than once. It's that important. So without further ado here is my conversation with Cheryl. Layered sure leered welcome. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you for having me you know. I just have to say when I was reading this book as a black woman. It was really interesting because I was basically reading an analysis of my own political behavior. And I've never actually read it examined in this way. It was really strange for me to read this. And because I don't think that much about my own political motivations right like I think about policy but I don't think you know why Democrat. Why have I always been a democrat? Why do I never question right and that was really interesting for me yet? No I think That's literally what are trying to do with this book and we also are african-american and I'm trying to speak from experience of understanding politics in a particular way And often I think the literature thus far in some of the fields of political science sociology and other areas where they examine behavior and even in this case political behavior. We haven't really seen something that takes on this kind of question And particularly like wire wiser people doing this thing The way that they're doing it and we're able to really tackle it in a political science sort of way but a lot of it is based off of our own lived experience as African Americans and understanding that politics works differently. Yeah and so. The thing is the open. The Book Win Alabama Senate Race Between Doug Jones Roy Moore. We all remember that race for some really terrible reasons because of the allegations around. Roy Moore but what? I think what keeps happening elections like this. Is that people try to analyze and predict a black voter behavior. Right they have all. These assumptions aren't right. And then what happens? Is that black voters in surprising them like they did in this election. I think ninety eight percent of black women voted for Doug Jones then it was following that when Tom Perez made this statement online that Blackman backbone of the Party and I think that was the first time that someone at that level of leadership the head of the DNC made a declaration like that and acknowledged that publicly. I think that that's that's right. It's like it is. It is clear that the partisan norm is very strong. The loyalty to the Party is incredibly significant. And in this defining to the Party itself and its success in numerous elections and I think the Alabama election would just put that into high relief. A you're just able to really see that at work and black women being like the people at the front lines of it not only in the voter box but also on the ground like they were the ones shepherding. The grassroot efforts on the ground they were the ones behind a lot of the the poll souls to the polls or gathering people up to get them to go vote informing people about what was going on And so they are. They're they're doing that work for the Party and often just getting knowledge for it. So what actually happened in that race? Why wasn't it as predictive as people? Thought? Alabama is typically. A red state was at the mobilization on the ground that happen in the context of the election right so we have two individuals Roy Moore and Doug Jones and Roy Moore has especially this incident that comes up about Some sexual impropriety. Right like this situation of pedophilia as part of the conversation. But I also think part of the reason why people didn't see it coming is that the speaks a lot to the data that gets collected that goes into the predictive models of elections. Which is the sample sizes often in those data are very small when it comes to the African American sample And so if you do not have very good. Data data that is large in terms of the size of the black sample. That's in it. Additionally that is broad in that it's not just focused in any one location but is spread across sets of black communities the predictive nature than of what you're going to get from that data is not going to be right. Like a selection bias can create a problem with that Additionally I think people also don't know of some of the resources that African Americans are often dealing with in this case if we look at in political science the way that African Americans participate in politics all of the indicators that we typically use things like education level income on all typically are things that would say what is likely for someone to participate. African Americans have to make up for all of that because they're very resource deprived especially in a place like Alabama. And so what you then have to rely. On our black institutions black churches black colleges like organizations became the frontline for trying to mobilize people and again most types of tapping of that information through polling or through other forms of assessment. If you don't know about that you wouldn't know where to go. Look for it and so people did it. They did it not go look there. They didn't know that people would be energized. In this election. With these circumstances that play to get themselves out to vote and at the partisan role of that vote would matter so much right. Did you think that's true? Nationally that black people are underrepresented in polling. Generally I think they are. I think that's how you get often. Polls for instance. I remember not too long ago. The president had cited to a poll where he said he thought he had a whole bunch of black people who are supportive of Ham radio or something like thirty percent of black people saying they were okay with Donald Trump. The mmediately my thought was I need to see the data because I want to know where the poll was taken. Is this a random? Sample poll is a poll that is targeted to black communities. Are you targeting? This poll to black people at a certain location like what's his taken at a convention of some sort like all of that would matter because it's going to skew the data and if you're not attentive to this in the sampling that you're doing and waiting the sampling and the size of it so often times really. It has to do with the size of the sample often in a poll of maybe a thousand or thirteen hundred people in terms of African Americans that are in that sample. You'll be lucky if you see a hundred people in it well enough when you're talking about about black political ideology and I think another thing that's misunderstood about. The black voting block is just how conservative they are like socially conservative in a lot of ways and I think it's because there's this confusion around. We are generally in allegiance to a non Conservative Party. No I think that's right. I think because we think of ideology and political science typically the conservative Liberal ideology spectrum that we have is used heavily to predict partisanship and in most literature which is often used basically assessing white Americans. What we find is that people's ideology very predictive of their partisanship especially in a polarized environment for African Americans. It's different right and I think part of that has to do with how ideology works for African Americans. Black people are very politically diverse in their views. Say That again why he very click over to the partisan behavior needs to be thought about much more from a strategic advantage at the group is trying to do to be able to minority group in majority system and having a voice but people have varying opinions and a lot of people are very conservative. Especially on things like social conservatism fiscal conservatives on religiosity often as a driving force and we know from data especially from Pew Research Center. They find the African Americans as a racial group are some of the most strongest actors when it comes to their role engagement of religious institutions and those religious institutions are also African American. Right like this is like Martin Luther King talking about the most segregated day of the week is Sunday right. Like that is where they are. And it still is true. So conservatism manifests differently. For Blacks and ideologically. It also is very shaped by race. Where the goals of what people are leaning into in terms of their ideology could have a lot more to do with what they believe is important for trying to improve the status of the group even if they are varying in how they believe one would try to approach that but at the end of the day the partisanship though is done. In a manner that is trying to elevate the voice of the black community And political power in a space where we are a majority based system the one of the things. That's really interesting about that is that it's almost subconscious right. We don't necessarily like myself. I don't think necessarily my role in this larger picture of what we're trying to do collectively but we just we just do it. We just do it. I mean it's interesting because when we presented on this before we like to use this episode of black ish again. I think it's like elephants in the room. Or something to that effect about their son Junior Andrea. Both junior decided that he wants to join the young. Black Republicans Club at school. Or something and Andre is stunned and he's trying to explain it as family members and they all can't understand see China explaining to bow Chinese to his mother And they're both like what do you mean? He wants to join a republic. He wants to be like he wants to be a the Republicans like the League. Keep he wants to go to Banana Republic and buy clothes like they can't even process it because you're right it is become such a partly to be black is to Democrats and people who seem to be different from that are seen as strange right But I think it speaks so heavily to how long this norm of collective group race behavior has been informing black political behavior over
Sanders takes early lead in Nevada Democratic caucuses
"At this point I will give everyone up to fifteen minutes to align themselves with their presidential preference with questions lingering about the process after Iowa Democrats struggle to report their results Democratic Party chair Tom Perez says I think we're in great shape you know we have all of the early vote results distributed the caucus sites people check in and now in pieces that really voting has reflected the state's diversity this is the first state that has the diversity at scale that is America I'm Ben Thomas
Iowa caucuses results are in but chaos and confusion reign as no clear winner emerges
"AP has declared officially after so many days of waiting eating That there is no winner. They are unable to declare a winner of Iowa Democratic caucuses because of irregularities in this year's process and the tight emergent between Pete Buddha judge and Bernie Sanders now. This comes after The Democrat National Committee Chair. Tom Perez has already dad. We need to re canvass. We need to go back and count all you know all of the paper Th th the paper trail everything because it's too close to call. There are too many questions we gotta start over Pat What are your thoughts on this tobacco. I think we've already left behind. Have we got New Hampshire coming up in a couple of days as we might as well. Just forget it this year. Yeah I mean nobody's going to really be able to have the bragging rights here because They can both claim victory. Sort of Bernie is already saying he won the initial Vote and Buda judge one the one after that and and it's kind of like I think it was two thousand twelve with Rick Santorum where we found out a week later right that he won when they thought it was. Who Was it Romney or they thought somebody else one yeah and it turned turned out? Sanatorium did and so he never really got the credit for that I mean he never really got any momentum going or anything for that because it was too late this. It's going to be as well. I think we're wins. Josh Pat points out you know. Historically the person who wins does get that momentum going into the New Hampshire voting and no one's going to have that now. How do you see that playing out yet? So need silver at five. Thirty eight had a pretty good column on Tuesday the night after this total crap show unfolded where he basically. We said that. Even if Iowa does get you know what together. It's never going to be too little too late. It's already too late because what happens. Is the boost. You get head. Is You go on national television that night and you're able to declare victory as someone who was very active in the Cruz campaign. Two Thousand Sixteen. I remember Ted's victory speech in Iowa very well and he got a bump out obviously didn't take them all the way but it did help so no candidate is going to be able to claim that this year and I think there are serious questions about the Avocados process going forward. I mean I'm actually longtime defender tender of it. I happen to like the caucus process. I participated in and I to me. It kind of embodies all that Alexis de Tocqueville famously looked at America everyone kind of game together and like like they're doing their civic duty in a very fundamental level. It says it's much more engaging process and the privacy of a ballot box clicking lever so I'm long time defender but having said add that if the Iowa Democratic party can literally not tabulate the votes to give us what the party apparatus needs. I think there are very serious questions but I will going forward. So whoever ends up the winner and perhaps we'll never know. It seems to me quite possible. It will be the last winner but I will caucus what do you think trial in. Good clear even at we don't know winter. The the clear loser was Joe Biden. Who by all accounts came into distance? fourth-place talk about the former vice president of the United States coming in Pretty low in an in a state that he he should have carried or at least come into the top two and we were just talking a little bit earlier that there has never been a nominee of of either party Who has placed below second place in both Iowa and The caucus in the New Hampshire primary. So if Joe Biden doesn't get his act together and at least place in the top two Next week in New Hampshire. There's really no precedent for him to become the the party's nominee. I mean how incredible would that be that. There's been all all this talk about Joe Biden and we could be looking at him dropping out within a week or two. He's done I mean I do a weekly election. Newsletter for the daily wire comes out Thursday's you can describe bribe. LP DUCK LP dot daily wire dot com slash. Get election wire so I said Yeah. I'll talk to folks about. Yeah but I mean I guess I basically said stick a fork in Joe Biden. He's done I don't see it at this moment. He's fourth place in Iowa. He's not going to get any better in New Hampshire that so-called firewall in South Carolina which the the campaigns been touting for months maybe a year on. Then it's already dissipating. He's four or five points. The most recent poll there if he goes fourth-place in Iowa third or fourth New Hampshire. He's probably not GonNa Win Nevada because again it's a caucus state caucus eight does not play well to his campaign apparatus. He's going to go over three in the first three. That firewall Julia Florida already saying he's not he's he doesn't have a very good apparatus in Nevada. He doesn't have have a good organization on the ground there and he's not looking good right now. Now we obviously see judge with a little bit of momentum going into New Hampshire sure You know let's let's pretend for a second that's already played out. Buddha judge gets the gets this boost and suddenly Buddha judge is the person that we're looking got running against trump in the general just UC. That is that going to be a problem for trump. Do you think or do you think trump could handle it partly I I do not. They blew judges a particularly scary general election for trump I actually think Bernie Sanders. Despite being as radical as he is a more formidable generally Bernie Sanders and trump. Have this weird crossover appeal read. They're both kind of burn it. All down anti-establishment counter cultural in their own unique sense figures. I think they actually she probably a appeal to a lot of these similar. kind of rust belt's More antitrade Anti Nafta style voters would adjudge. There's just so much material for trump come to work with their and he's so young he's so inexperienced. I mean a lot of you are these conspiracy theories that he's like a CIA agent. It's kind of sketchy. We don't really know exactly what he was doing. There's just like he's too USA by happy but he's what he's thirty seven years. Old Trump could torture in the debate. I think he's the mediocre mayor of a town one-seventh the size is of your average congressional districts I I mean E it's not serious I was telling somebody from Miami. Yesterday I was making like a reference in terms of like how how big South Bend is compared to like some of the small municipality down there and it's just really ridiculous and I I totally agree with Josh. Not only does does Bernie Sanders. Had I think the strange crossover appeal. I also think he can activate people who otherwise don't vote just bring a lot of people out of the woodwork to show up to vote so I think I think I think president trump is in a very strong position heading into November. But it's going to be very interesting to see what Democrats do you at the convention because it would. There's no clear front runner. I don't think that the powers that be. You're convinced that Buddha judges is strong and the clearly do not like Bernie Sanders so we may. We may be going into broke. Invention Pat. Do you just to play. Devil's advocate Josh. Do you agree with Josh. That Bernie would be formidable candidate against against trump. Because it's because the just put it out there you know. I agree with what you're saying that they kind of have this same anti-establishment feel but it's so hard to vote for for someone like Bernie wants US radical change people's lives are good right now. You know you have the economy that trump touted during the state of the Union. You people are working on It seems so unlikely to me that people would say yeah. Let's change everything. Let's burn down when it's working for the majority of two and especially since Bernie as a socialist list. My hope is that this is still America and we're not quite there yet. Another young people who were there that think socialism might be a great alternative to capitalism. Something I think this shows the greatest difference you can possibly show going into an election a guy who's overseeing a great economy for for four years and who is a hardcore hardcore capitalist and a socialist curmudgeon. WHO's seventy eight years old? I mean I think that's a great economy That that trump could exploit whereas does with Buddha judge who I don't think is that strong either And it seems like you don't go from South Bend Indiana mayor to President of the United States. Although there was a country where can happen. It's here thank you. Don't go from reality. Show host president if that happened but Budi judge has has one other thing going for him and that's identity politics and you've got to be a little bit careful with him because of what you say and trump isn't careful and he could run into trouble I think. Yeah I mean my concern with with with Buddha judges his his youth and I think he could definitely use that to his advantage. But it is as far as Bernie and socialism. I mean like Josh like Josh Nine you as well like we were born in in in an era where like the Cold War is like a distant memory the most people of Dr Generation. Wow we have no recollection of what socialism even is the here it. There's like some scary S. word but they don't exactly know what it means. They don't remember the bread lines in the former Soviet Union or or the Eastern Bloc states countries and and they're not learning it at school either so when you call someone a socialist. They'll think. Oh Yeah it's like the Norway pavilion at Epcot They're completely disconnected from it. So have to be the baby. Maybe boomers who understand that and don't vote for for Bernie Sanders hopefully still will we like the the people have educated on it. Yeah
Iowa caucuses early results: Buttigieg and Sanders are leading
"Breaking News As we await Joe Biden was first remark since we received early results from Iowa Senator Bernie Sanders campaign says. It's optimistic. That rival Buddha judge will not be declared the winner of the state a senior sanders campaign official telling. CNN quote will be in first. When it's all counted the campaign also touting sanders lead in the raw vote total out front now democratic no credit congresswoman Pramilla Paul? She's endorsed Bernie Sanders for president. And I appreciate your time as always so right now. The numbers we have sixty two percent in so obviously thirty eight percents still to go. Sanders is in second at twenty five point one percent of the vote. Will you accept the results if the margin remains this tight but a judge right now only at Twenty six point nine when that is incredibly tight. Will you accept those results. If that's how tight is with Buddha judges winner well I think all I know is what I saw in Iowa uh-huh and what I see in the numbers which is that Bernie Sanders is incredibly popular. He is winning the raw vote. I saw across Iowa Barnstorm Iowa Iowa was in some parts of Rural Iowa. You know in a in a little rural town and there's a hundred people down in a dark basement grady to go campaign for him the enthusiasm from from young voters from folks of color. People who traditionally have not participated in democracy. I think was was really encouraging. So I remain confident Bernie. Sanders will pull it out in the end. And I just think it's a real shame that we are still waiting because obviously the momentum from Iowa on matters to New Hampshire and on this issue of how well sanders is doing in the popular vote. Obviously up their delegates is what determines the winner of the state but he is up on popular. Vote Right now. I want to look at the map again though congresswoman just to get your reaction to this when you see the county's Buddha judges winning you can see now in that that kind of Pale Green gene which dominates the state of Iowa. Then let's just look at the one. Sanders is winning in blue. And obviously you got a lot of people in those but when you look at breadth across the estate Buddha judge so far is is dominating I mean there's there's no other way to put it when you look at those colors. Well I think one of the things we have to remember and I love Iowa but Iowa Iowa doesn't necessarily represent everywhere else in the country. We have an enormous number of base voters. Young voters folks of color. Who I think this is the turning point for the Democratic Party? We have to decide if we are going to engage in inspire those people so that we can bring them into the system and make the kinds of structural reforms that Bernie Sanders is pushing and an. I think that it is very important that we don't forget that. At the end of the day the Democratic Party base is is critically important we cannot take them for granted we have to expand the electorate. If we are going to make this country work for people again Erin so I wanna ask you. I know obviously. So you're hoping he comes out on top and you're very measured person But the presence team has been trying to push narrative. The caucuses rigged right. Eric Trump tweeted mark. My words their rigging this thing what a mess and Senator Sanders himself has used that word many times rigged in reference to the two thousand sixteen primary being rigged against him just just the other day his senior adviser Jeff. Weaver was complaining about a rules. Change the change that allows Bloomberg to be on the Democratic debate stage in Nevada and weaver said in part quote. That's the definition of a rigged system. Do you agree or do you think that that word is being thrown around way too much. The Sanders campaign should back off it as well because it's hurting faith in the system. Well I think the economy is rigged. I have thought that for a long time when you have three people in the country. Aaron who have the same combined wealth as one hundred in sixteen million Americans that's rigged economy now I think the DNC and I said this publicly the DNC changed the rules in this situation but how come the the DNC didn't change the rules in order to get cory booker or Houlihan Castro to be up on the stage so that we would have a diversity of presidential candidates and I think that these are the kinds of decisions that matter. Do you think that was really based on race that they rigged that on race. Is that what you're implying not. I'm just saying that if if rules are changed were for a billionaire than I don't know why they can't be changed to ensure that we have diversity that represents the breath and depth of the Democratic Party. I don't know they elite because they went off of polls which which of course Tom Perez was very open about right but he went off polls so we didn't look at the color of someone skinny looked at how they were doing in the polls. Do you not buy that argument argument. Well I just think look Tom. Perez is a good friend. I think he's done a great job and many levels. But I think that these are the kinds of things that reinforced enforce distrust of the democratic. Party we are trying to do everything. We can to unify the Democratic Party but when there are things like this that happened when there are big mistakes like using an APP in Iowa that apparently was never tested for for the kind of turnout that we were expecting tame and then you have a mess. That doesn't provide us with a winner sixties before the next primary election and these states understand I come from Washington state. We're not until until the middle of March but these dates determine so much about the future of the election and so I just think we have to be incredibly careful about making sure where we are really doing everything possible to show that we appreciate our base that we appreciate the diversity and that we are committed to making sure everyone is a part of our democracy Kung giant. I appreciate your time tonight. Thank you very
Jay Inslee Helped Make Climate Change a Top Campaign Issue
"Climate change is an issue that democratic voters routinely say that they will vote on next year. Many polls show that it's second only to healthcare but today the democratic national national committee voted down a proposal to allow a presidential debate focused solely on climate change and last night washington governor jay inslee who was has basis entire presidential campaign on climate change dropped out of the race n._p._r. Political correspondent scott detro- is here with us in the studio to explain all of this. Hey scott also so so jay inslee he basically ran is the climate change candidate rain. He said he would focus on that more than anything else and now dropping out of the race. What is it five months before. The iowa caucuses focuses. Does it seem like that. Maybe climate is not going to be the defining campaign issue for democrats after all. I think it's actually the opposite and jay inslee. Ran is the climate candidate candidate but it turns out. There are several climate candidates. If you're a voter who's looking for someone who wants to overhaul the entire economy over the coming decades to transition to renewable energy massively cut down on greenhouse gas emission. You have your pick but oh aurore has a plan to do that. Elizabeth warren joe biden into a more moderate degree others. Many have put forward <unk> plans that would go far further than what the obama administration tried to do on this injury did have the most detailed plan. He did talk about this the most but that really didn't allow him to end up to a stand out on the front and you write most polls show that climate change is one of democratic voters top issues. This is something that this year democrats are regularly talking about voters are asking asking about. It's a topic in debates in the past. That hasn't been the case. This is often been an issue that ends up getting ignored during elections. You mentioned bernie sanders. He just rolled out a big. Get climate plan. How does his proposal compared to the other plans. We've seen i think it's fair to say. This is the most aggressive plan yet. <hes> most candidates have a plan to get the country to a carbon been neutral state by mid century <hes> even if greenhouse gas emissions are happening there offset elsewhere bernie sanders plan very aggressive. It is a sixteen trillion dollar plan to begin well. He wants on paper at least all electricity generation and transportation to be completely carbon-free by twenty thirty so think about that not replacing aaron dishes. It is certainly and it is beyond current technology for sure we're talking about replacing all natural gas coal power plants with renewable energy but also airplanes liens cars everything else we used to travel on that emits carbon dioxide being totally overhaul so that would fundamentally restructure society and be expensive offensive but sanders and a lot of experts say that is the type of change that is needed to avert the worst case scenario at this point so i don't get it with all of this focus on climate change we just mention at the democratic national committee decided they didn't want to hold a debate focused entirely on climate change. That's something jay inslee had called for repeatedly before he dropped out. Why do the d._n._c. Nc vote down this proposal. The dnc chairman tom perez has said that yes climate change is very important. One of the most important issues needs to be debated but he does not want to do a single single issue debate because he argues that opens the door to issue after issue and that he thinks candidates shouldn't spend all their time doing presidential debates and i'll just say i've gotten emails als in the last few days press releases urging debate on on challenges. Older americans are facing on campaign finance report reformed so the singular is board certainly coming in and he doesn't want to open the door even something that most democrats would say yeah it really is a top tier issue okay so there are twenty two democratic candidates left when all of us gets whittled down undo expect the eventual democratic nominee to make climate change a huge part of his or her general election message. I think so and again that would be a huge shift from in recent elections for years. The thinking was people vote on more pressing issues. A lot of democrats think that increasingly climate change is a pressing issue last month the hottest month month in the history of of recorded month's wildfires all sorts of extreme weather democrats feel like this will be voting issue this year and they're gonna talk about it and say we wanna do something. Most republicans simply ignore this issue n._p._r. Political correspondent scott detro- thanks scott sure thing.

Meanwhile, the crowded field of Democrats he would join is working furiously to raise campaign dollars. Let's get into all of that. With KOA political analyst local pollster Floyd really good morning Floyd morning, April first off sad to hear about Senator Bennett's diagnosis. But if you were a betting man, would you say, hey, if his health is not an issue. He's going to run for president. That's what I'd say. He he we knew he was on the verge of announcing in as, you know, testing the water for a couple of months, and he'd been hinting the last week or so that he was going to announce and then he did sort of a combined announcement more or less. He he said if I'm cancer free after the surgery, which is you know, it's gonna take place within a week of it's going to be very quick, he if he's cancer free after a certain period of time, he said he would announce so that's a pretty dramatic. And obviously, it will get a lot of attention. We're all pulling for him to be healthy. He points out that John Kerry had the same experience in oh three that he had a cancer scare I got had prostate surgery and was back on the trail in ten days. And as you know, won the nomination and went on to lose the presidency to Bush, his rerun. But but so he's he's definitely thought about this. He's going to run the only difference. I would say. Hey there Floyd is this field is going to be way crowded. I mean, we remember we talked to Tom Perez. The DNC said they were looking to winnow the field, but it continues to expand and expand. So what point does that start beginning? Absolutely bharti. And and you're right Kerry was you know, in it in a front runner, and and Michael hasn't even announced yet. So you're absolutely right. It is incredibly crowded, and and as you know, they're all fundraising, and that sort of become one of the big criteria at this point. So he is behind in terms of he said he's hired a few people in in. I awoke New Hampshire, but he's a long way from having a campaign. He believes however, if he can get to the stage, which is the first debates, for example, in in June of that his his presence is reputation his teams as arguments will sustain him. And plus, you know, people do drop out you're not raising money. Some of these people down at the bottom end of this may not be in a two on top three fundraisers. Bernie Sanders Kamla Harris and then Pete Buddha. Judge. We're hearing a lot of buzz about mayor repeat. He's the south bend, Indiana mayor who seems to be very popular among young people almost like Bernie Sanders was in two thousand sixteen. Do you think he's a guy that could rise to the top? Oh, absolutely. I've been practicing trying to pronounce his last name. It's he's he's he's drawing good crowds. And as you know, the Democrats have made into the criteria right now fundraising online, so. So Bernie Sanders is money is not surprising. He's eighteen million dollars in as you know, he did quite well for years ago, but he has more than a half a million people send them a check and calmly Harris and better alert. I mean, hundreds of thousands of people and sodas Pete. So so in my opinion that the one of their criteria getting in the first debate is to have sixty five thousand online donors donors in general. And so that all of these obviously, these this first list of they've made it and that's going to be now the criteria. It's one of the things we'll start watching along with Poland. Wow.

But it is it is worth the watch. Okay. Time for some things that I hate. Tom Perez, the head of the DNC. He no put out a statement saying that he will not allow a Fox News primary debate. He says I believe that a key pathway to victory is to continue to expand our electorate and reach voters that is why I have made a priority to talk to a broad array of potential media partners, including Fox News recent reporting in the New Yorker on the inappropriate relationship between President Trump his administration and Fox News has led me to conclude that the network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates now. Listen, if he wants to say, Fox, News leans right at it's really that. Of course is true. But if you're saying that Chris Wallace and Bret Baier can't condone in Marfa McCallum can't conduct a normal debate. That of course is absurd on its face. It has also rather absurd for for Tom Price say he wants an objective basis for debate. That's not true. He wants a he wants a network that is going to kiss his candidates rear end. And we're better to find that in places like CNN. And as you'll recall, Donna Brazile, who ended up becoming the head of the DNC near the tail end of two thousand sixteen. She admitted that she used her former position as a CNN commentator to relay questions ahead of debates to Hillary Clinton during the democratic primary. She said in October subsequent release of emails revealed that among the many things I did in my role as democratic operative and DNC vice chair prior to assuming the DNC chair position was to share potential townhall topics with the Clinton campaign. She said my job was to make our candidates look good, and I worked closely with both campaigns to make that happen. Huh? So, but but Dorsey, and then we'll get a debate. Also, I'm sure that ABC news will get a debate you recall that back in two thousand twelve George Stephanopoulos, an actual former staffer for Bill and Hillary Clinton in two thousand twelve you'll remember that he randomly in the middle of a primary debate asked asked Mitt Romney about birth control. Why? Because then set up the entire line of attack on Romney that there was a war on women. It had nothing to do with anything. No one was talking about birth control. Didn't stop George Stephanopoulos from going there governor Romney, do you believe that states have the right to ban contraception or is that trumped by constitutional right to privacy. Georgia's an unusual topic that you raise it states have a right to ban contraception. I can't imagine a state banning contraception. I can't imagine the circumstances where a state would want to do. So. And if I were a governor of a state or lead role on more or or legislator of a state. I would totally and completely oppose any effort to ban contraception. We should love the people to express their own views through amendment and edited the constitution. But this idea that Justice be done in case ardent should that be done in the throat Stephanopoulos, objective news anchor. I'm for George Stephanopoulos. We'll get some moderated debate this year. George Stephanopoulos was an actual Clinton staffer who wrote in his memoirs about a legitimately about Hillary Clinton that upon her husband's victory. They looked at each other with tears in their eyes. And she said, I love you, George, and he said, I love you to Hillary that guy can moderated debate. But not Bret Baier or Chris Wallace, a good for president from President Trump and blasted the DNC said fine. You don't want to do this. I won't let any of the big news networks do debate. With me. He says I think I'll do the same thing with the fake news. Networks and the radical left Democrats in the general election debates, this seems to me inappropriate response, frankly..
Democrats bar Fox News from moderating debates after reported Trump ties
"Democratic National Committee said on Wednesday that Fox News will not be hosting any of its twenty twenty presidential primary debates with party chairman Tom Perez, saying that he concluded at FOX wouldn't be able to host the fear and neutral debate harass citing a New Yorker article from earlier this week about the cozy relationship between Fox News and its personalities and President Trump so Perez had been considering choosing FOX to host a democratic primary debate. Although that had drawn some criticism from some activists having said that it's important to expand the electorate and reach all voters, FOX said it hoped Democrats would reconsider that. Decision. Now after the DNC's decision was announced the president tweeted out a threat to not participate in the general election debates on quote, the fake news networks, you know, what a disservice wanted disservice to voters this is in by the Democratic National Committee and the chair Tom Perez. Are you telling me that Tom Perez doesn't think that any democrat any democrat who has his or her eyes on the presidency is capable of navigating through a debate on any network. Doesn't matter to me who the host is the moderator if you will what the questions how they're framed. And how they're asked doesn't matter to me if somebody is a viable strong candidate, they're going to be they're going to know how to navigate any kind of a debate on any network.

I love all these rich people sitting around on the Senate of you every person on that set is wealthy every single person who is sitting behind that desk on that set is inordinately wealthy. And they're sitting there laughing at the idea that you can't buy the presidency. Here's the reality. You can't buy the presidency. Hillary Clinton spent a fortune on political advertising, and she lost Donald Trump self-funded part of his campaign, but he didn't really by his way to the presidency. The media handed him an enormous amounts of free political coverage. There's this weird idea out there. It's really amazing to me. There's this weird idea that if you spend more money or inevitably going to win elections that is obviously not true. It's simply not true. If you run a good campaign, you can still win elections. Even if you're not spending most money, in fact with the rise of social media. It is certainly true that spending great amounts of money in the wrong. Places are not going to help you at all. But here's the reality. People are angry it shows because he's a billionaire. The reason people are angry at Charles is because Scholtz saying reasonable things and Democrats aren't allowed to say reasonable things because that humiliates other Democrats are saying reasonable things. So yesterday here is Howard Schultz slamming comma, Harris over her idiotic notion that we should nationalize the entire healthcare industry. Just played Senator Harrison saying she wants to abolish the insurance industry. That's that's not correct. And that's not American. What's next? What industry are we going to abolish next the coffee industry? Okay. And he's exactly right about this. But this is the real reason the Democrats are angry at him because he said a reasonable thing because he said a reasonable thing. Right. And this is why it look what the Democrats want is. They want him to run inside the democratic primaries that the radicals can sideline that's what they would like they would like for there to be only two options on your ballot. Donald Trump at a radical radical Democrat, Tom Perez saying as much at Tom Perez, the head of the DNC he says, you know, what she'll shouldn't run as an independent he should run as a democrat. So we can side. Of course. Have respect for Howard Schultz if he chooses to get in the race. I hope he gets in the Democratic Party will will will treat them very fairly clear. He's not though. Well, well, what I tend to agree again mayor Bloomberg. I think it was who said I've studied independent runs, and what an independent run would do and twenty twenty is simply split the anti-trump vote and helped Donald Trump get reelected and and Howard Schultz himself said I'm only gonna run if there's a real pathway to victory. Mark Cuban businessman. Spoiler. Okay. Well, get Democrats are deathly afraid of this because they've taxed too far to the left. They know they've tacked too far to the left and they're scared.

"Right. I'll tell you. There's a theme that it's been around us at so great. There's a theme that's been around now for a couple of years, but it seems to really be picking up in the last couple of weeks last week. We were talking about maisy Hirono democratic Senator who basically said the only reason that some people aren't voting for us is because we're just too smart. Right. We're not dumbing down the message. Then you had the head of the DNC Tom Perez last week saying, well, it's just because they're listening to their stupid preachers. If people won't listen to us. Yeah. Gosh, we need to break through. All that religion nonsense is what he was saying. Then you got sleepy is Chuck Todd part of a panel on the Rico decode podcast and shared some of his words of wisdom about why Trump won because we're apparently still breaking that down more than two years after the fact and some of it was because voters are gullible. He says now the full context was talking about Russian trolls on Facebook, which there are still people who believe that Russian. Trolls on Facebook is what caused millions of Americans devote for Donald Trump. Oh my gosh. And making the Clintons out to be terrible people that was his whole point. And then here he goes, I knew the cast leading was out there news every day. But I think there was part of me in my head assumed people were discerning it out new the BS from the ninety s right? So I think what my sort of shock to the system is just how gullible. A big chunk of the country was to this and gullible because maybe they wanna be gullible. Does he understand how smug data's? So this is the same guy who by the way wonders why so many people don't trust the media. Why so many conservatives don't trust? The media doesn't always come across as the kid on the playground that the cool kids picked on all the time. And this is getting back at the world. Maybe and never trust a guy with two names either, by the way, just. Yeah. I names know that guy's gotta go. If you go back four years with this guy would your opinion of been the same Chuck Todd. Yes. No. That's part of my point. I mean, a lot of these folks have been exposed for the way, they really think and what they really believe. But I wouldn't have thought it was that bad for years ago. That he's that smug. I mean, you talk about all these people, especially on the coast that said they were gonna get out of the bubble. We don't understand why people voted for this guy. They still haven't done it. It's still well, I just I figure people were smart enough. You still don't understand why people voted for Donald Trump? You still don't get it, man. While the no he knows the reason it was because of Facebook memes. That's heads are all the time. But you know, I think he did almost inadvertently say something very very true here. This was in the context about the Clintons, but could absolutely be said about guys like him in the national press. You can't separate the fact that the Clintons weren't very popular. So people wanted to believe the worst about him, and they own some of that on themselves. Right. Why do people want to think the worst about them that you gotta ask when people want to think the worst about you? Gotta ask yourself is that you need to look in the mirror. Wow. One hundred percent agree. Chuck there's lack of awareness for you right there. Because he's the same guy who always goes out and says, well, this is all just a right wing conspiracy about media bias and all this stuff, and we need to counter it by yelling back at people who claim there is bias. Maybe if you realize if enough people are saying this about you. Maybe there's a reason they're saying this about you because you think that everybody who voted for Donald Trump was dumb and gullible. Call half of the Americans dumb. It didn't work out real welfare Hillary, did it Chuck. No. But that's the thing. I mean, there's no self awareness. They're exactly this is somebody whispering in his ear saying, you know, what dude? Sneaking you know, you would think. Don't like when they have meetings together. This only let's say, you know, what I think we're insulting people when we say things like this.

"Tom Perez here from TMC place dot com, we're talking preservation, but of course, and the strange renewal of physical things of analog things. And we're talking about Christmas gifts what you might anticipate, Tom, you mentioned calendars awhile ago, that's really kind of fun and intriguing when you think about it a physical calendar may be hanging in the kitchen, and then you can actually scan a QR code and get a video from your grandparents or an aunt or your kids, or whatever it might be. I mean, that's an amazing mix of the old and new, but we're not limited to just calendars fat, one of my favorite things to do is recipe books because mom had recipes grandma had recipes ground Mahad recipes that sometimes are handed down through even more generations. And this is cool because you can do it either. At a log like we talked about or you can do digital. So you wanna get these and make PDF's, and you always want to get the car whatever it's written on and make a copy of that even if it's in grandma's handwriting. They can't read. But then always you wanna put it down where you can read it. So he's got this really cool picture of handwritten index card and then knee exactly what it is. Maybe a story behind it. Like, why did you say to do this? Why did grandma use this when grandma hit a pinch? What did she really mean? Really cool things on creating a PDF you can print it out. So you still have something his ical, and I've even seen people do CDs and put all these on a day to death. But then they wrap the CD in photos that they've made of the old recipe books or you can go and get a binder and put these in the sleeves on the front and the back of the binder, and then put things inside as well. And then get sleeve that holds a disk, then the people wanna do digital that got the one analog they've got it. And this is a priceless gift to give for Christmas and the different holidays over coming up wouldn't that? Be fun to do a QR code actually showing grandma or mom actually, putting this recipe together. You flashed the QR code that takes you right to the website with that video. If you're lucky enough to have them around still to show, you exactly how it was done. Oh, that's absolutely wonderful. In fact, taking it another step. You can actually grandma's gone.
