"I think that it's probably still advantage. Trump. I expected to carry Texas by three or four point, but I also expect him to lose nationally. What do you Why do you say that? Well, uh, they're they're just a massive amount of information out there Polling in particular on Texas, but also on on the rest of the country and in Texas. There had been a couple of Poles. Most recently, The Dallas Morning News and UT Tyler had a poll that had that had Biden by three or four points in Texas. I just don't believe that most of the other polls show Trump to be up narrowly meaning 234 points and I I think that calm Paris, Texas by three or four points But there are pockets all over Texas that are far more competitive than they used to be. Most of those are in the suburbs that the ring of suburbs around the The northern part of Dallas and southwest of Houston, Fort Bend County, Williamson County that sort of thing where Democrats are much more competitive. So while Trump I think will carry Texas on Tuesday I think Democrats will pick up two or three US House seats, and they're going to make a run at the nine seats. They need to take majority control of the Texas House. I'm not sure how close still get But they'll pick up a few teaching The Texas House nine is a little bit of a stretch, but it's going to be a very mixed bag on election day in Texas for both parties. We all know that the polls were wrong in 2016. What makes us think that they should be right this time around. Well of every time. So just think about yourself. If you did something wrong, you try to correct that you'd try to figure out what you did wrong and make adjustments, Which is what The pollsters have done so it's unlikely that they'll be wrong in the same way they could be wrong in in 2020 a CZ well, but they won't be wrong in the same way and they won't be wrong in the same places. So my assumption is that on election night if you want to know what's going on Watch Florida if Trump holds Florida Then you want to stay up and see what happens in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. And if he's got two out of those three, then you look to Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, where Biden is up in all of those states, but a Biden were to take Two out of three of Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania. You, Khun, Go to bed. Does. The rest of the country is pretty much divided between blue and red on. Biden has some advantages in places that Democrats have not normally had advantages. Arizona being the most obvious case where My guess is up by three or four points. Arizona has been a Republican stronghold for a long time. Last thing I'd say is that Hillary Clinton was up by about half a cz much A CZ. Biden is up right now. Back in 2016. So in a race where Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by 2.5 Trump could one win the Electoral college. If Biden is up six or seven points, there is no path through the electoral College for Himto win. Alright, quickly count. I think it's arguably even more important than the presidential race would be the U. S. Senate. How do you see that breaking down? Yeah, I think corn and is re elected to the U. S senate. He's been very subtly up by about eight points. Their was a fascinating story in AA. And I guess Well, yeah, Dallas Morning is this morning about the amount of money, race and Senate races around the country and usually Texas? Incumbent senators and challengers can raise a lot of money that they were right in the middle of the pack. Far more money being raised in South Carolina and Iowan and unexpected places like that. I think that corner and hold that seat fairly comfortable. Yeah, But what about the Senate? Over all the makeup of Congress? Is it if they if the Republicans lose the White House, where they also going to lose the Senate Yeah, that's going to be that's going to be very close. I do think it It is more likely than not. The Democrats take control of the Senate and the states that you look at for that. Would be Susan Collins in Maine. The Arizona seat that Mark Kelly Cabral, Gabby Gifford's husband is contesting is very likely to go to to the Democrats. North Carolina Thom Tillis has been down by two or three points if they lose that, and Biden winds Kamala Harris within preside. In the Senate. You would be tied, but I think you also watch Joanie Ernst in Iowa. Very, very close Race. Iowa should be Republican. Hard to know how that one is going to go. There's a woman named Greenfield, who is running very close to Jody aren't so it's It's going to be a nail biter. I expect Democrats control it by one or two seats at the end of the day. Maybe a few news time is coming up on 6 28. We'll have another check of our traffic and weather in just a moment on the W. P A P. Sunday morning news, the Randy Williams and then more news and sports of the day with Dennis Martin. This is Mark 11. This election may be extraordinarily close.

PT prosecutors and Williamson County announced an investigation following the 40 year old Amber's death back in March of 2019. Sean Dick is the district attorney for the county. And he says Williamson County is just the start. We spent several months putting all this together and presenting a large number of witnesses to the grand jury. And a grand jury and Williamson County. Believe there was probable cause to believe that these offenses were committed within Williamson County. It will continue in Travis counting to determine what offenses were committed Travis Down. Meanwhile, Travis County D A. Margaret Moore says that what Williamson County has done with Sheriff Jody, her county is next. We believe that there are facts supporting tampering in Travis County as well.

Meanwhile, Sheriff Cody has issued a statement in the Twitterverse and it's available on the tide of Don show Facebook page, and it reads in part, the Travis County district attorney dropped the ball on the Ambler investigation with the video service during her campaign, she had to find someone to blame for old mistakes.

There is some dispute or there is some controversy involving this live PT show, and there is controversy involving the death of Ha V e a ramble. No doubt about it. He shouldn't have died. He also shouldn't led police on the 20 minute high speed chase either. But you know, there's a lot of details in this story that's need to be discussed openly. And Margaret Mohr and Sean Dick kind of holding a lot of that close to their chest. But listen, you could always jump in here at 51283605 90. It is debate day. It feels like Friday night.

Which I complained about, of course, and I'm now I'm glad we've got especially in a log cabin. There's a sprinkler system, so if a fire breaks out, it's you know, and it's an isolated spring is not like the old days. You see in the movies where somebody springs the sprinkler system, and it goes off all over the building. It's isolated this if there's a Fire in the kitchen. Then the sprinklers go off in the kitchen. Well, we have the same thing in the house because the house is further up the hill. You know, the house is a Three quarters of a mile away from the road. And so we had that, too. But what was interesting here and that's where we have, You know, big containers of water cause we're up on a hill. And that's in case you lose power.

"You know, very impressed. Everything was very spaced out lots of hand sanitizer. Protective equipment and stuff. Election officials in Texas hope to replicate this on a much bigger scale in November. Mirren up it is with the Brennan Center for Justice says Even states that are expanding mail in voting will have to make sure they have enough safe in person locations for voters. Polling places are the way That many, many Americans will be voting on election days. There are some people for whom it is really the only realistic option, Perez says. That includes people without reliable mail service. People with visual impairments or people who need language assistance. In Austin County Clerk Dana De Beauvoir plans to have a couple 100 polling places. But so far finding them has been a challenge because a lot of owners of the facilities we want won't give us an answer, for sure, one way or the other that we can or cannot use the facility. Some are completely off the table. Voting at grocery stores was super popular in Austin because they were so convenient But now, Debevoise says the pandemic has made grocery stores a terrible idea. And it was just too too close, too Crowded is never gonna work in the last election. De Beauvois says she relied heavily on schools, but now that school's maybe reopening at some point in the fall, it's up in the air. Chris Davis, the election administrator for Williamson County in central Texas. Says another set of traditional polling places is also a bad idea. We're relatively certain we're going to take off the table nursing homes and assisted living facilities that we've used and enjoy. And the residents and enjoyed in the past is election polling places, Davis says. Election officials are goingto have to get creative. For example, Davis is looking for open air options in an effort To keep the possible spread of the Corona virus down or considering sites that we could have kind of a robust drive. Thru voting, say, defunct closed bank with several teller lanes as well as perhaps parking garage is something that can give one stop service in Austin, Dana Debevoise says she's looking at setting up polling stations in lobbies, hotel ballrooms and amenity centers at apartment complexes. But election officials also have to be mindful of how these polling sites are distributed, says Miranda Pet is with the Brennan center. They need to make sure that there's enough polling places in the communities that I need them, especially in communities that are under served or have low rates have vote by mail usage, And if there aren't enough polling sites, there could be long lines Alley. Lozano with the Texas Civil Rights Project, says the state already has about 750 fewer polling sites than it did a decade ago. Plus, voting during a pandemic is just going to take longer than it has in the past. And that's if people keep the same amount of polling location if we close even more, and we have even less pulling locations with these added steps. It's just a perfect storm for problems that is absolutely going to lead to a longer lines. If we do not substantively, prepare now. Even though Texas won't have an expanded vote by mail program, State officials are giving voters more time to go in person. The governor recently extended early voting from 12 to 18 days for the presidential election for NPR news..

N. dot gov forward slash team at T. E. M. A. I. individuals can go there and get information on how they access help but the governor in Tennessee is doing a good job we'll have the president on the ground tomorrow people are looking forward to having him there so that he can see firsthand so we're talking to sue us senator Marsha Blackburn and senator we saw also that your that the Tennessee governor had held a news conference this morning saying that Tennessee has the first confirmation of cold hit nineteen as well also from middle Tennessee talk about adding insult to injury as you guys are coping with the tornado damage you're also dealing with this covert nineteen outbreak that is correct in the state health department I had the confirmation on this case yesterday it is a forty four year old male he lives in Williamson County which is right outside of Nashville that Sir Brentwood Franklin area I he had attended an international conference which was held in the United States after he returned home he did not feel well so eventually as his system and his symptoms worsened he decided to go to take medical care and that is when he was tested and he is quarantined at home with his family now we we have seen some of the measures in places like China some of the European measures when it comes to this slowing the spread of cove it nineteen and and some other areas are taking pretty significant measures that we have not yet taken here in the United States one of which being the the UK government announcing that they're going to pay for people's sick leave from day one if they self quarantine image can you imagine every single taxpayer being on the hook for everybody's staying home from work in a two week or more self quarantine one one of the things I think said and we're receiving regular updates Dr sale team is doing a tremendous job N. ambassador Burke of leading the effort working with the vice president who is handling this they are very thoughtful they are getting information to us they are transferring information to your state and local health authorities and I certainly believe that the reason you have seen a slower spread here in the U. S. then you have in other countries it is because of the actions the president took immediately on restricting travel from China the restrictions have since placed on Italy and on South Korea analysts say also the actions that are being taken by many companies I know many companies are now placing our travel restrictions on individuals until we know more about the incubation time the covet nineteen and on the the symptoms how long the disease last things of that nature some people are are of the of the mindset senator Blackburn that the corona virus outbreak could have an effect on the the upcoming presidential election of the presidential nominating process though with with Bernie Sanders now out and he was or or at least seemingly mathematically out I don't wanna say these out loud but seemingly mathematically out it will I I would have thought he would have done better on super Tuesday as he is the man who is advocating for universal health care and that would be something that that some supporters of Bernie Sanders think would help when it comes to the outbreak of of the corona virus are are you surprised that or or are you concerned that the corona virus could have an effect on the process of electing our next president I I don't think that it will I think that knowing Tennesseans and I think many Americans are like them and they feel that our country three is when you look at the issues of security whether it is economic security national security border security and access to services like healthcare and making certain that we are addressing issues like the environment with clean air clean water that many of the stepsisters ministration have take has taken our steps in the right direction and they are pleased with that and people are going to go to the polls they are going to vote for Donald Trump it looks like it is said to senator Marsha Blackburn a Republican from Tennessee and I I wanted to kind of learn the last question here Fauria switch topics kind of a hard pivot here one of your colleague senator Marco Rubio left a video message on his Twitter page last night let me just play a portion of this you can see what he's advocating here and I'll get your reaction things

"Line is Larry Gaddis. He's a Williamson county tax assessor collector. Hey, Larry, just real quick your thoughts on the things are going to be voted on this week that has to do with property taxes at the capitol. I'm sure you've got some thoughts and opinions on all of that. Yes, sir. Go ahead. How are you doing guys? Good. Great. So, you know, the whole one percent sales tax thing concerns me. Now, I've got a, you know, the these bills are ever changing. So they're going they might be going to conference committee and get changed out of that. So what you see today is gonna may end up to be something different tomorrow. But you know, what's been reported on is that HD three the school funding Bill is going to lower school taxes by proximity four cents or the maintenance operations that and so four cents on a three hundred thousand dollar home is about one hundred and twenty dollars. That's ten dollars. A month is is a huge property tax relief that the legislature is going to bring you ten dollars a month and a one percent sales tax. You could easily have been in extra two or three hundred dollars a year on on that additional one percent of show. Hey. Really failed to see the savings. They're actually going to be taking more money out of people's pockets. I I think in the long run, and what's not being addressed. And and this is where the voters has to come in. And and talk to the governing body that the only way they need less money is to spend less money. So that that's not any of the conversation. That's being had is how do we spend less money in government in general right now, the state is just gonna take more of your money and make the schools take a little bit less of your money. And that's frustrating to me because it's it's not helping anybody. They're still going to be the same amount or or more money coming out of your pocket. If you live in the state of Texas, and it's very frustrating. I it feels like you're robbing Peter to pay Paul. It's just a shell game. This one category may go down but a couple of other. Categories are going to go up. And that's that's an assessment. I haven't heard others say that. Yeah. You may save ten bucks a month on your property taxes. But you'll spend hundreds of additional dollars a year with the sales tax increase of one set. That's a good point. Larry, do they think we're too stupid to figure that out? Well, did they believe so? Yeah. And and unfortunately, they're going to break their arms, patting themselves on the back bringing you properties, actually. And it was going to ask you, how do you see this playing out? But but in reality, it could all change a lot this week. But once you go to those various conference committees. I mean. It could there. What you see on the table today may change probably not going to change drastically. But it it will change the minutia the details of the bills. So we still don't know exactly where this is going to end up, and and I'm actually about the park my truck here in Austin right now making with a state legislator about one of his bills and gonna talk to them about tweaking it a little bit to make it a better Bill for for all Texans. And we'll we'll see where it ends up. It's going to be interesting. All right. Larry gaddis. I appreciate you. Thank you very much for calling the show that today. Good to hear from you.

"williamson county" Discussed on GSMC Weird News Podcast

"Welcome back to the MC weird news podcast. We are continuing to talk about some strange news stories, and we are going from a giant tubs of macaroni and cheese to a sheriff who's using cardboard cutout deputies to fight crime. Sounds great. According to the Williamson county sheriff whose name is Robert Choji. He is partnering deputies with cardboard cutouts to deter motorists from speeding. The sheriff has tweeted a video this week show in one of these fake deputies and the deputy is standing there pointing a radar gun at oncoming traffic. So the deputies it's not like a out in the car. No standing there. Okay. Which seems way less probable, but. Yeah. Lift likely to be believed were easily see when it's outside the car. It's not a real person. Yup. You would think, but according to the sheriff it is a creative way to solve a problem without really working. Really working the problem. I mean, that's true that yeah. You went for cheaper route. And he continued to say when you're going twenty thirty miles per hour. You see the silhouette your mmediately breaking in slowing down. I guess and this reminds me I think it's I wanna say it's super troopers. It's the beginning of some silly Cup comedy where the guy puts like a mannequin in the Cup in the front seat of the car and goes off fishing, but it's still a cop car. So the people like slowed out, and I'm like, I bet this does actually work, but you would think you'd at least want to hide a little the fakeness. Yup. I mean like you said he's not really working the problem. I'm gonna put this cardboard here. And we're going to go off and play canasta. We'll be back. It'll be fine. We'll be fine. He said that well the cardboard deputies are not going to be filling out any quotas. They do appear to be deterring speeders. He has recently tested them in school zones with real deputies who were stationed nearby and he said we didn't get one speeder. All these people were breaking before they got to the cutout, or as they were approaching the cutout, although I do feel like if I saw that I would immediately pass the cut out and then just speed up out of spite. Well, I'd be rubbernecking. Wait was that a real person impossibly caused an accident? That's true. Not not a Cup Cup. Not at what was that? I could see that. That'd be stopping to be like what the heck? Yeah. It's like at least take, you know, like an old car, you don't need and put it somewhere. So that where people where the card normally sits to deter speeders, right? And then you need anything. And we only see the car were good. I think that would do the same problem. Maybe they were short on cars. That's possible. Cut outs would be cheaper though. Who makes cutouts of cops. Like don't know. What is the company, and what are you normally make these four people who make the Elvis cutouts? I'm hoping it's not for like sheriff deputies who are short of people like sheriff departments that. We don't have enough officers. Let's just put out cutouts. Also, this is not just like the silhouette. It's like a full it looks like a sticker like full print like they took a picture of someone. Okay. So it's not even just like one color at got an I would hope it wouldn't be one color. That would not be believable at all. Yeah. I mean. Oh from a fire like maybe someone I don't know. Anyway, apparently, it's working for them. So good on you feel. This is going to be like the people version of those als that they put on building. Get used to it. So it doesn't scarecrows. It doesn't do anything. Any more start hanging out with the cutout? It'd be like, oh, I know the cutouts going to be at this corner from whatever to whatever. So it's fine. I can speed. This covered corner. We're good. Yeah. We'll see. Also, another story. This is not about police now, this is a firefighter so kind of related, but it is for a much happier story a firefighter had faked a fire at his own house. So that he proposed girlfriend. Okay. Yeah. Find proposal happy. But I'm starting to worry about like public service of young people trope. What are you doing? This all happened in November. And apparently just as this couple was preparing to host a holiday party. So man talk about stressful time already for some reason..

"williamson county" Discussed on KLBJ 590AM

"On cave. You about the sheriff in Williamson county and his new idea for cutting down on speeders. Yeah, they're trying to deter speeders especially in those areas like school zones where they get a lot. So they've come up with this idea, and they used drug money or money that was seized in different criminal activities to purchase a cardboard deputy. Is the holding a radar gun holding a radar gun? He looks life like you know, from a far distance. He looks life. Like, I could see that people see unity going oud tap the breaks. Here is sheriff Jody talking with cave you twenty four news. So when we start putting these cardboard cutouts in different eras location, then replacing it with an actual deputy. That's writing tickets were enforcing speed limits, then wants to community realizes that they cannot tell what areas are being enforced, and if it's for safety reasons, it's a win for Williamson county. So they're starting with one cut out there starting with one cut out in that does start today again, they're looking at place in these in school zones. Their hope is that they're going to expand. They want to get more cutouts, but like in different positions. So the deputies all the car boards. Don't look exactly the same. Right. So the idea is that if you see this you start slowing down thinking this area is being enforced all of the time. And then whenever they place a real deputy. Hopefully, they're not having to pull over a lot of people because people are already thinking. Okay. They are really enforcing the law. The speed in this area, we use drugs cease funds to purchase this. So it didn't cost taxpayers any money. And it's worth the test to try it out not just on every school zone. But every area that's problematic with traffic enforcement with speed being an issue. You see this in neighborhoods the schools found juror? So I I I they'll just park a police car somewhere, and that's enough to slow people down. Yeah. I'm with him. I don't know why it would be a bad idea every year since nineteen Ninety-two Gallup polling has been asking Americans. Are you a liberal a moderate or conservative liberal moderate or conservative this morning? Gallop is out with the brand new results in the United States. Thirty five percent of Americans self identify as conservative thirty five percent self identify as moderate and twenty six percent. Sent self identify as liberal now when it comes to the liberals Gallup says that's the highest percentage since the nineties it's been growing. Yeah. They say that the conservative numbers pretty much stay the same. But what were the changes is? They're seen maybe a little bit more of those moderates come out of that in in lean more towards being liberal. Yeah. And then they delve into the people who say, I'm a democrat. And there's definitely a change underway. Among people who self identifies Democrats back in the nineties. The Democrats about half of them would say, I'm a moderate or conservative democrat. That's no longer the case. More and more. Democrats are just flat out saying I am a liberal very few are saying, I'm a conservative democrat or moderate democrat. That's because there's very few conservative or moderate Democrats. Yeah. Well, I think it also reflects the polarization of the politics that's been going on in this country over the last fifteen years or so it is more polarized. No doubt about it. Yes. It definitely is more polarized in when it comes to the Democrats. There's no room, for example anymore for people who are pro-life in the party that used to be the case in the nineties. That's not the case anymore. You mean when when they invalids everyone in and it was okay to have a little bit different opinions as long as you focus was with them. And now, we have no tolerance for them. In one thousand nine hundred ninety four nearly half of Democrats described their views as moderate. But that is changing now, the vast majority say they are liberals, and the Democratic Party has even changed the branding on that they call themselves. Progressives now. Just as being someone that I would say is a conservative moderate. You. We have a tendency to just go ahead. And we're speaking about Democrats just call them liberals anyway. So I mean, they're all group together there anyway. Well, the they made a conscious effort to move away from that term democrat and become progressives. You don't you don't hear that term very often? You said you describe yourself as straddling conservative and moderate. Yes, probably more conservative. But there are some some issues where people would say, I'm not conservative at all. Democrats in America. A more and more. According to Gallup or identifying themselves as liberal it's rapidly increasing at a very fast pace, according to their yearly polling the Gallup is doing of the American public. Why I would say probably a lot of people would point to we're seeing younger people as they're growing up that that's their tendency to go towards that to go that way. Why why do you think that's happening? I don't know personally. But I know what people would say, and they would blame it on education system. So they're being indoctrinated in the schools. You hear that quite a bit? Yes. All right. We've got more in this Gallup survey. We'll touch on it coming up when we're back at two two to three live and local and Melinda. Rush is next with another great show and remember tonight live eight o'clock Austin time, President Trump I followed by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer with their speeches on the border and the partial government shutdown.
