"So I think there's still a lot of back and forth on it I spoke to a few people including groceries been looking at polls for a lot longer than I've been alive and everybody's everybody's. Consensus seems to be Biden has the advantage. There's there's it's measurable in pretty much every way the by its Biden's to lose I think most people would say you know the trump campaign is working they're out there registering you see the Democrats and their allies have really kind of stepped up in the last couple of weeks. You know they're they're getting out the vote. Sort of actions. Now, normally, they'd be doing that for like a year. So so the there is some wiggle rooms there's a window I think that the trump campaign is trying to crawl through but you know when you look at the survey and you get a little bit deeper, you know it wasn't that Rosie for trump because we also asked folks, you know what they thought of. Of their number one motivation was and by far the most common motivation for voting was forgetting trump out of office about a quarter of the pioneer said that that was a reason second-place was the economy added about seventeen percent, and then also if you look at who do you trust, we asked folks who do you trust to you know sorta gets out of this corona virus mass and trump in the federal government were near the bottom of that as well. So so not super rosy for trump, but I, do think. It's it's their best poll of the state in in months so far. So maybe maybe there's something to be clean there and to me I, just shows you know what everybody's been saying what we've been saying for months it's it's still very much a swing state. It's still very much anybody's ballgame. The that's for sure. We should also mention a couple of other top top results. Don blankenship gone one percent in our poll. If you're wondering who don blankenship is use the Constitution Party candidate. Nationally. He is running here in the state of Nevada, under the independent American party banner. and. Joe Jorgensen got three percent she is the libertarian candidate. For. President. So Um so there's probably some libertarians there now whether that will see that in the final analysis, we we to see none of these candidates by the way got four percent which beats the independence and third parties there. So I'm sorry visa third parties, not the independence and so that is an option that's on Nevada's ballot that sort of unique to the State Nevada but yeah, twenty five percent did say their motivation was getting rid of trump. and seventeen percent said, their motivation was the economy. And there's really no way to tell how that economy question of the benefits trump refit benefits biden. On one side of you could say, will trump was being charged with pretty good economy until the coronavirus head and and. His ad saying if you put him back in charge, we'll get back to. What that good economy was all about on the other hand. You can have people say the economy is terrible right now we want to a change to make it better could. Occur. Well for for Joe Biden.

Sole Survivor: The 1869 Yellow Jacket Silver Mine Fire
"April seventh eighteen, sixty, nine, the miners of gold hills yellow jacket mine said goodbye to their families and went to work like any other day. They had no idea that many of them wouldn't ever make it back home. Later that morning uncontrollable methane fire broke out at the minds eight hundred foot level collapsing timbers, and quickly spreading to neighbouring minds. The miners were trapped below with no chance for escape in what was probably the worst mining accident in Nevada history. Yeah. They used to have those methane lamps the did in the minds and they would go out if the methane levels got to a certain level and. Stuff like the candles. And Methane Cub Blam Yeah Oh. Yeah. I mean, I worry about that a lot too because I have a buddy. My best. But up in Idaho Jim Belton he works in a silver mine too and I always worry about them I. mean they have air blast it's. Very dangerous. I got nothing but mad respect for minors man yeah. It's hard work. Hammer Dangerous Oh. Yeah. Working deep any earth as a minor is a job with many hazards including poison gases, explosions collapses, floods, and fires to name a few. To minors like James Dunlavey, the risks were just part of the job. Dunlavey did not dwell on those dangers as he worked in the yellow jacket mine in Gold Hill Nevada, the mind and sister mineshafts were burrowed more than one thousand feet into the Earth as they extracted silver from the comstock lode. Each labyrinth of Mining Chamber was supported with heavy timbering in this tinderbox would minors lit their work with candles or lamps in the US blasting powder fractured the or for removal? The yellow jacket was a great silver producing property at the extreme southern end of the comstock lode. Nothing was more feared by gold and silver miners in a fire in a mine. As the pockets of or a cut away taken out cavities or chambers are created. The overhanging ledges of rocks are supported by Timbers to prevent the rock from caving following the tunnels are drifts reaching out for hundreds of feet in many directions from the shaft completely lined with beams and boards. Sometimes enormous cavities in a mine created by the removal of great pockets of or require eight, hundred and nine hundred thousand feet of timber that is. As Lot would yeah, it is. That's a that's a lot of flammable dangerous would had certainly is. Once again mad props because I have seen some of these things. You've seen it in movies I've seen it in real life. Yeah. It's some of these areas they are vast. Hoping for for your one hundred yards in some cases. And there's nothing supporting this rock, right? Right. I mean it's solid rock. It's holding together but man what is like caves but this is man made stuff see. So you know cave ins and stuff always dangerous. The shaft is face with heavy timbers links a deep and well-worked mind becomes a stupendous subterranean honeycomb of lumber. If a fire broke out any part of the lower levels of a deep mine, it would create a difficult situation for firefighters to get to any minors below level or beyond the point in the drift where fire occurs have little to no chance to survive. They are almost certainly killed before the fire reaches him by suffocation from gases or smoke that reached him I. Yep, and it Burns all the oxygen. Now, the chef exactly no suffocate drop them. It's bad. The comstock minds went down two to three thousand feet into the sides of Mount Davidson which increase the danger of fire would cause. So around eight am on Tuesday. April six, eighteen, sixty, nine. The nightshift miners were clocking out in the early days shift honors coming in. A careless minor perhaps tired from a long night or just excited to be heading home left a candle burning on a wall of timber. Some nine hundred feet deep in the mind which eventually set fire to supporting timbers food. The candle probably burned for hours and served as a life for the miners but having been left behind the flame eventually reached the pinewood on which it stood. The blaze started a chain reaction of disasters. Yeah. I bet it did Dunleavy who was working on the nine hundred foot level was alerted to the catastrophe when he heard the distinct crashing a falling rock. Debris tunnels forcing choking gases and dust into the yellow jacket in neighboring Kentucky Chefs. While running along the nine hundred foot level dunleavy spotted a wall of flame as he raced towards the main shaft, he gave the signal for fire, but the crackling of the Burn Pine Timbers was so loud that his warning shots were drowned out you. Dunleavy, remembered sending at the opening of the nine hundred foot level upon the yellow jacket shopped and heard the screams of minors on the levels below. Airport and from the Kentucky Mind acted like billows and fan configuration as it swept along the nine hundred and eight hundred foot levels and through the laterals to another neighboring mine. That is horrible. It's terrifying is. Horrible what a WAY TO GO TO UTAH? No, you would just. Yeesh the roof collapse around Dunleavy, and he began to choke on the fumes and dust he lay on the floor and pulled a heavy overcoat over himself. This act helped save his life. He was the sole survivor of the nine miners nine hundred foot level. He slipped into unconsciousness and did not wake until hours after he had been rescued

"It's doll play to what they want to happen. They've picked him because they think he's the most incendiary candidate. So if the truly patriotic thing to me to do in this situation is Bernie is is an American who loves his country and wants. What's best for America? And we'll let the democratic process decide to feed the flames of that or to feed the distrust not just of the electoral process but of the National Intelligence Community. Which is what President. Trump has responded. You Know Bernie said get out of our election. His response was the right response. Trump was like. I don't know they didn't tell me this. Like and what university they briefing Bernie but not trump give me a break and like denouncing it and then firing people who give those reports. It's just also concerning this past like grudges. This is a a this. Filling every position with loyalist is so so troubling especially in the face of the knowledge that Russia is most certainly trying to interfere again. That's right and I know a lot of people. Just don't care about the way. President trump runs executive branch. They just don't care about the personnel decisions if what impacts them in their lives is working out. Okay they're okay. I read this wonderful piece in the Atlantic that will link in the show notes. About how one of the things that has to happen. In the general election conversation is a reckoning between what his actually transpired under Donald Trump in terms of foreign policy and all the the earth is ending alarm bells that have gone off about the Donald Trump presidency. It starts out with you know. Hey we're in a protracted war with Iran and North Korea because that's what Democrats have told us is going to happen under Donald Trump for the last four years and neither has happened and it's not that his foreign policy has been hugely successful and wonderful but it hasn't been as doomsday as it had been foretold to be. I think that is both true. And incomplete because I do think four more years of the president without meaningful checks from Congress is a scary proposition. But I think the same holds true on the other side if I say to myself well. It hasn't all been a complete catastrophe. Donald Trump. Even if I think that Bernie Sanders is actually a pure Marxist. Who is into Marxism for all of the worst and most selfish reasons which I don't think that but let's say that I do which pointed out that I have to put the same container around him right because fortunately in our system it is really hard to do things and so I just think that the the Patriotic Act right now is to borrow from the British and like keep calm and carry on everybody. Let's just play this primary out. See where it goes but if if a bunch of people rush in at a very high level now in a stop Bernie kind of way that also plays right into Russia's hands because we have sown this seed of America and regular actual American voter who is not an elected official a journalist or corporate. Mogul every single thing is conspiring against you and and we gotta shake that lease this goes to something. I've been thinking a lot about and I could not agree more that to keep calm and carry on does not mean to you know not no. You don't mean this to tune out of the political process to assume the right person will win like we did in two thousand sixteen but I feel pretty passionately. It does mean to get the hell off social media because no political. Power is exchanged on social media. I Really Want Elizabeth Warren to win so on Friday. I signed up and I made calls for Elizabeth Warren to Nevada. And I plan on going to Tennessee. Which is my clothes. Swing STATE INTO KNOCK DOORS FOR Elizabeth Warren and also I'm deactivating my facebook account for lint and perhaps forever because I just think if you are concerned with this sort of interference if you're concerned with a political tenor the we all just have to acknowledge that almost nothing good comes out of us being in those places and trying to convince each other over facebook not a real exchange of power. It's just an emotional exercise that is easily exploited and manipulated not only by Russia but by the campaigns themselves and I just. I just wanted to stop. My husband keeps making fun of me because I'm like entering every room. I get into and just screaming. Facebook is the devil's playground. Like I just my passion about this is increasing by the day If we take anything away from twenty sixteen how could it not be that? That is really dangerous place to believe that that is where we should all be to talk about and to deal with our political environment. It's not it's the it's the opposite sedans playground. I'm GonNa make shirts I think. Yeah I think that's the carry on portion of keep calm because what we really need to combat that sense of conspiracy is actual agency in our own lives and you can derive that agency by knocking doors or making calls or just having conversations with the people in your life and reading and thinking critically. I think that you lose your sense of agency. When you get too absorbed in polling in punditry or if you just subject to yourself two hours of scrolling where else in my life am I gonNA put myself in a space for other people to just yell the same thing over and over and over at me and that's really? What election twitter feels like to me? is certainly what facebook feels like. It's not all social. Media is horrible but this particular use of social media to yell at each other about elections. I think it's pretty safe to say we don't have to have nuance about. It's just bad. It's really bad in it's creepy. It's hard to sift through. Yes and here's what I told my husband. I'm like think it you know. In this particular political controversy in my hometown. Everyone is just so fired up and there is a lot of ignorance around the topic. It's not surprising. Everybody can't be an expert on everything and especially if you're entering a conversation late in the game you're not going to know everything and I said you know. The thing about it is is twenty years ago. People were just as ignorant. Nobody wants to hear that. And I know that sort of an inflammatory word but I mean like people had opinions about things. They weren't completely informed on. That's just a human way. Okay particularly the American way but we just talked about it around our kitchen tables. We all didn't have to witness the entire populations lack of complete information on every topic. And I think that was a gift. Okay not because I think we can solve it not because I think People don't deserve basic human kindness and that there is space in humanity for everybody to not to be an expert on every damn thing just because information's out there on the Internet but just because it's exhausting and I don't think we're supposed to be exposed to every single person in our entire social circle. Ambience opinions about everything it's exhausting. It's not great for our view on humanity. It makes us cynical or on the opposite. It makes you a conspiracy theorist is just. It's not great. It's not great. It's feel so strongly about this is the devil's playground especially when it comes to politics. I can't tell you how good for my soul. It was two on Friday just and make calls for her and then on Saturday to turn my phone off 'cause I'm back to doing texture bots thank goodness because during our travels it really really messed with my weekly practice. But I turned my phone off. I got away from it all doing those. Two things together felt incredible. It felt incredible. And I just don't have any real desire to go back to you know scrolling through facebook and being perpetually mad at my fellow citizens and fellow community members and friends and family because they don't understand agree. Whatever it's just it's bad. It's those playground Hashtag Devil's playground. That's what makes everybody not really because we shouldn't be anywhere. Thanks Trent. I know. I almost think we shouldn't have ashtrays anymore. I've been thinking about that a lot to me. That the real issue is that social media was supposed to be about connection and what it offers instead is isolation masquerading connection offers instead the deepest forms of loneliness in this the seeking of attention and the looking for places to fit in and so around elections. That's just bad news. It's it's really bad news in and it does make you feel powerless. If you spend an hour on social media you start to think. Of course. Trump's GONNA win reelection or of course Bernie is a socialist or of course Bernie's GonNa win. Why work for anybody else or whatever it is and none of those things build up the sense that citizenship actually matters in its application that we need to seriously transform our political system.

"Look at this point for winning the majority of delegates now that we've input the Nevada results into our primary forecast so we have both results and we had some further. Polling came in overnight. We finally got some more post-debate polls from YouGov and other people so Sanders is clearly by far the most likely Democrat to win a majority we have him with almost a fifty percent chance of forty six percent and most of the non sandwiches win. There's no majority. It's a forty percent chance still. So if you look at a plurality because there could be a case where Bernie gets forty five percent of delegates. Anyone else's clothes you think he'd be nominated in that instance so he as sixty nine percent chance of getting a plurality of delegates so he's really in the driver's seat. I would use the phrase that it's his nomination to lose it's both because of his strength and because of the frankly weakness of any of the alternatives biden actually was helped a tiny bit by the goings on in the past twenty four hours.

He's the one who could still if he wins South Carolina then the starts to look like a a competitive race again. Compare it doesn't mean it's fifty fifty. You probably still rather be burning. But he does have this path if you went South Carolina and we kind of maybe get the kind of sanders versus Biden. Showdown that some of the stuff. We might get all along. Meanwhile Bloomberg has not been polling well and post-debate polls his odds have fallen. Warren actually has been polling. Okay after the debate but there's not a ton of data yet but for anyone except for sanders and then Biden and maybe Bloomberg I mean everyone else is like a lot of work left to do and when not name Sanders it would be at this point like an upset for them to win the the majority to rallies is more employees could get messy. You know we do need to keep in mind that like these three states that we had so far as South Carolina. Also they all have their their curious elements right. Where is it kind of caucus or caucus primarily hybrid? Although up from past years is still relatively. Low is a pop-up portion of the state overall. So you know you see kind of fluky. Results that may or may not prove to be indicative of broader trends. But so far we've seen across the three different environments we've Seen Bernie perform well and no one else be quite consistent when we talk about the trajectory of the primary so far in large part were talking about momentum because the actual delegate totals based on the three contests so far are minimal right. They're not going to really help you win the nomination does. It seem at this point that sanders is kind of from. I were to Hampshire to Nevada and that could now make them competitive in South Carolina. Does it seem like with each contest. He's gaining more and more support or like you mentioned is Nevada more fluky because it is a caucus and his strong supporters showing up while maybe people who voted for Biden and a primary or staying home. We don't know I mean you can't really extrapolated a trend line from three data points. I thought his performance in New Hampshire was not particularly impressive given from neighboring state and got what twenty five or twenty six percent of the vote. So this is like the first performance that like the Israeli kind of deeply impressive by Bernie because of the breadth and the margins of what he did here whereas Iowa I mean we. We still don't know who officially won the delegate Count Niwa by the way I wa and New Hampshire. That was more like okay. This is kind of attritional. Parts of the Bernie Coalition. He's in the mid twenties. No one else can reach the mid twenty. Maybe Mayor Pete I mean. I don't think there's all that gray but this result is a great result for Bernie in the most diverse state so far. But we don't know right you know. In South Carolina. He is kind of now polling in the in the low twenties. The question is like would that be enough to win? I think probably not. It seems like you know Biden does seem to have at the very least like a little bit of a floor that he's found and so I think you know but we'll see I mean. In Theory. Sanders will get a further bounce from winning Nevada and being in the national conversation as a winner and so that could boost him. You know subjectively I think. South Carolina is likely to be one of the five were states for him on the Mat. Not JUST BACK AMERICANS. He does well with with some after American voters but like you know older more. Moderate more conservative white voters. It tends to be a fairly pro establishment state right. We remember for example Clinton winning by a big margin in South Carolina in sixteen bigger than the polls forecasted actually and so you know I don't want to like throw any cold water on like sanders performance but I think there is always the danger of overreacting to one event right with the model shows the models like okay. Two things we can say certainly Bernie is way more likely than anyone else to win a majority. You know however number two there is still a pathway where this kind of stays quite messy and where there's no majority and a path where Joe Biden win. South Carolina is maybe puts us back on that no majority path. I want to ask NATO question. 'cause I'm I'm a little bit. I'm not sure which argument I but I do think. There's another argument. And you mentioned you thought that. Bernie's performance in New Hampshire was not that impressive and I guess the counter argument to that which I guess I lean towards is this isn't like twenty-sixth theme when there was a clear contrast between himself and and Hillary and he crushed her. And now you have four or five. Other fairly robust campaigns going against them and he still managed to pull to pull out. I know he's a neighboring senator. Did you give any credence to that at all the comparison I think I'm not comparing verses? Twenty sixteen but I do think that the neighboring state thing matters quite a bit you can model it out and Beekman neighboring state probably is worth is worth five or six or seven points or something like that and so you know if Bernie Sanders is from Connecticut and not Vermont. I'm not sure if he does as well in western New Hampshire Musher if he wins the state right He also may have been lucky in New Hampshire that mayor. Pete had some of his debate bounce stolen by club. Shar who have kind of very similar. Overlapping voter. So that's what I'm saying. Right we are. We were one point. Five percent of the vote away. Maybe one bad amy Klobuchar debate away from a narrative where now Bernie is over two in his first two states right. Of course I think that by the popular about metric one Iowa but like these are pretty thin margin the first two states and so I think I think the big robust win is pretty meaningful here. But I'm just trying to There's a fifty fifty chance roughly speaking that when we're having this conversation week from now that Joe Biden will have one South Carolina and we're having these conversations about oh well now. There are new doubts about Bernie recipes trying to get like a little bit ahead of the game and say no other. Democrat can be remotely happy with with the hand. They have to play here but it is still. It is still pretty early and we don't yet know kind of how this will translate to other states. Yeah I do think that Gal said at the beginning of this part of the conversation about delegates not being as important in these early states is absolutely right. I've always believed that in the narrative. Either that is real or constructed by the media covering it. The the the About momentum and how many tickets are gained out of Iowa and then New Hampshire and then the Vatican. Because I was so muddled this time I think that that calculus may be changed a little bit. Maybe I wasn't that that important but Bernie Sanders clearly has momentum built up over the first three states going into South Carolina and Biden has lost so much ground in South Carolina that. I don't think it's unreasonable. To believe that Bernie could win in South Carolina. There's still two more speaking of data points to come. Which is what happens in in the debate. This week I I that could affect the the polling and if Clyburn is going to endorse on Wednesday morning might he be waiting to see if Biden does all right in that debate to move forward with an endorsement or not and both those things could have an impact on the polls in South Carolina? And I think if Bernie I I don't need a nate silver model to tell me that Bernie Win South Carolina. That that he is going to be the prohibitive favorite for the nomination. And maybe even a favourite t t to get a majority of delegates. Oh Yeah if he wins South Carolina you can be a very heavy favourite. I'm pretty sure in our model. But but we're actually so our models into account for momentum that he gets it right now that Bernie's behind in South Carolina however it predicts that he'll get momentum from Nevada and therefore it makes it more or less a toss up it has biden with forty seven percent chance burning at forty three and I think the rest is mostly Tom Steyer. We haven't talked about yet who Is still kind of close in the South Carolina polls? So I'm saying like this forecast. Bernie accounts for NATTA momentum in theory may be overweight. Sit maybe at underweight sit maybe it miss weights it you know. I don't know right but we're playing in the fact that it's a big win and that usually you get a boost in national polls in the polls in the next stage when that when that happens so John. You mentioned actually another data point between now and when South Carolina votes is the possibility that the majority whip James Clyburn from South Carolina endorses. Somebody and mentioned as a preview that we're GONNA be talking to Clyburn this coming week so we'll see where he has to say about that. You know nate you said that no other. Democrat is looking at the hand that they have right now and is particularly happy so while we're talking about the Nevada results. I do want to the other candidates and talk about what hand they are actually looking at John who made up Biden and Buddha judges coalitions the two people vying for second at this point. They're clearly vying for some of the same voters. And that's a big problem for them. And that's why a mayor Pete's campaign just sent a letter to the State Democratic Party here raising questions about the results. It's why Biden for two days going into the caucus raised questions about whether they were going to be valid or not. They're playing for the same voters. They're playing for the same kind of momentum if mayor Pete were to finish in second here when all of a sudden done and I think that's relatively unlikely but it's possible that he will be able to say look at the first three states I it's it's Bernie and me one two and that's what you should be talking about. As nate pointed out earlier Biden gets second here even though it's a distant second that no one should brag about. He won't let me well of course brag about it and used as as trying to get momentum to to hold on in South Carolina and then Super Tuesday could change the dynamic because there are so many states voting and so many delegates in play and so the biggest problem for all the other. Democrats is that is that Bernie has his X. number of percent and the and the rest are vying to cut up the the the the the remaining pie and that's just a problem and that is why I think the attacks are going to be even sharper between Biden and Buddha judge in the debate this weekend. Listen warrants campaign. Now is trying to paint her. As as the Comeback Kid is opposed the Biden. Saying a lot of what she did during that debate Did Not show up in the caucuses because seventy five thousand people at already voted and they're even putting out anecdotal evidence that people showed up yesterday. We're talking about how they're sorry. She wasn't viable in their precinct because they were so excited about her. So I do think that the that the bait could have an impact again but it also might not depending on what happens. Then right nate. You said the night of the debate. That you disagreed. That early voting would prevent Warren from reaping the benefits of her strong debate because early voters were generally the kind of people who had already made up their minds and so weren't going to be the kind of late deciders. Who WOULD GO FOR WARREN? Warren did do it. Looks like better on caucus day than she did with early. Voters do think there is any sense. That early voting prevented Warren from reading some of the benefits of her strong debate. I mean any any is a low bar to clear you know..
"nevada" Discussed on FiveThirtyEight Politics
"This. Nevada caucus results edition of the fivethirtyeight politics podcast. I'm Galen Droop at the time of this recording Sunday afternoon about sixty percent of the precincts in Nevada have reported their results. We won't have a full picture of how second and third place panned out until the remainder of the results come in but one thing is clear it was a good showing for Bernie Sanders who came in an unquestionable first place at the moment. Here's what the delegate tally. Looks like forty six percent for Sanders. Twenty percent for Biden fifteen percent for Buddha judge ten percent for Warren five percent for closure and four percent for star. We're going to discuss what those results mean the voting patterns behind them. And what comes next and here with me from Nevada to discuss our editor in chief nate silver. Hey how's IT Goin'? Schooling will thank you galen. How's Your Luck? So far in the Casino. I played a little bit of poker. Did really well the first night and not so well the second and third nights but so far the success of the first night outweighs the mediocrity from nights two and three good to hear and also with us is special. Guest John Ralston. Who is the editor of the Nevada independent and if you watched the democratic debate in Nevada you also saw that he was one of the moderators. So Hey John. How's it going? Thanks for joining us. I'm doing well but my first question is nate. Where where did you play poker? Because I play a lot so I was at the Bellagio. The first two nights and then at Aria last night. Yeah I played a lot. I'd live just look right across the way from area so I can walk and so I play there a lot but I played at Balaj was well. I was hoping to play in like the wind has like a winner. Poker classically determined that you could register till until four forty five and of course we did not really know very much about who actually got what results until right around then so it didn't work out but you know the cash games are always fun. Okay yeah okay. Poker forget forget that forget that okay so to avoid playing too much into the stereotypes of Nevada. There's obviously more to the state than poker gambling casinos etc. A lot of Nevada's weighed in last night on who they want the Democratic nominee to be so John. Let's start with you. We have results from sixty percent of the precincts looking at where the results are coming from. And what remains? How much do you expect these numbers to change? Once we have full results. Well it's a little bit hard to speculate on that I mean most of the precincts that are out Just like most of the state is from Clark County Las Vegas area and if if those hold and if if the patterns of the first half of the vote in Clark County hold than than Joe Biden is probably to hold on to second place and that seems to be a big deal only to Joe Biden and p Buddha judge who were arguing about who is the second place finisher but when you finish you know more than two to one behind the front runner that's just for the purposes of spin going into South Carolina and Super Tuesday so nate Sandra's average in the Nevada polls leading up to caucus day was thirty one percent. How big of an over performance. Worst Sanders as results last the polls predict the first instance vote so he initially caucus with when you enter the room and in that number. He's at thirty three percent. So considering there are undecideds the polls actually did really well. Then you have okay so the polls yes so. This is important right braided. Well no matter how you look but like went from thirty three percent of the raw vote to thirty nine of the vote after we allocations because he was viable Almost every precinct to the forty s in county delegates and so in each version of that. Count Bernie did better than the previous one. And so that's important the polls actually were extremely precisely right on every pull individually the you know one head right but like the pulling average was quite precisely accurate and the forecast about reallocation was accurate. But yeah so people should not view this as an over performance by sanders. This is in line with what was expected. Going into the Nevada caucuses. Yeah I mean if you look at him being way ahead in the polls anyway then you say okay well. He is comfortably above fifteen percent and no one else's and it was quite predictable. Bet He would get up to thirty nine or forty percent in the second instance. I don't think anyone knew that he would also get a boost from county delegates relative to the real line vote We don't try to forecast that but from a kind of polling or forecast standpoint than for all the concern about Nevada being hard to pull than some of these late polls the data for progress polls let showed burning in the mid thirties. That's exactly what actually happened. Based on based on the first instance vote which is what the polls are trying to predict all right so John what contributed to sanders when looking at the entrance polls what parts of the electric did he do well with he did pretty well with almost all parts of the electorate and and what those entrance poll shows number one. He's did fantastically well. With the Latino voters was showed up polling a beforehand and it was pretty clear from what was going on on the ground to end. And if you see look what happened and I mentioned this already. But the Hispanic turnout in those caucuses for the Culinary Union which is heavily Hispanic which took place mostly on the strip Bernie one almost all of those and that is not insignificant The second thing if I recall correctly and I'm sure if I were calling correctly. Nate will correct me is even in the moderate vote which it's kind of a microcosm of the entire campaign. Bernie did all right with the moderate vote because the the rest of it is being split among so many other candidates and of course that is why or at least part of the reason why Bernie. Sanders is the front runner. But there's one other thing well actually to other things if you'll permit me the why he did well here number one. It's been clear from the beginning that the most fervent supporters for any candidate are those of Bernie Sanders is core support. They're not going anywhere no matter what happens. And so he had that but he also had this time As opposed to twenty sixteen when he did well in Nevada. He had a organization. Here run by political pros. Were able to harness that passion and energy into a formidable turnout machine Both in early voting. I believe yesterday and so that that is why he won and did so. Well across a variety of demographics. Yeah looking at the entrance polls. It looked like Santa. Getting about twenty percent of the moderate vote and the outright majority fifty three percent of the Hispanic vote he also did decently well with black voters still behind Joe Biden but not by the kind of gap that we saw in twenty sixteen against Hillary Clinton so looking at Bernie Sanders as coalition broadly now given the Nevada is more representative of the Democratic Party. It's a bit more diverse. How does sanders? Coalition look in twenty twenty from two thousand sixteen. Well the Hispanic portion of it is I think the big shift right. I mean it's a little bit apples to oranges. Because in two thousand sixteen sanders was in a two way race in here. He's in a however many candidate viable race but clearly like the Hispanic vote mostly stuck with Hillary Clinton in most states in two thousand sixteen And it's a big advantage for burning out not only here in Nevada but obviously California and Texas are the two largest Super Tuesday states. So that's quite important. His coalition I think actually has become a little bit more liberal so in this state he did decently well among moderates. The twenty percent is kind of more a reflection of the fact that no one else is doing particularly well here If anything it's actually like a a more liberal coalition in New Hampshire for example it got much less of the moderate vote. So you know. It's more racially diverse and it's more liberal and those two things are working out just fine for him so far but it does kind of a little bit of a room still kind of the moderate sodomy. We go back and forth about kind of you. Know what these lanes mean the thing that kind of transcends for Bernie most lanes is age. Where if you are a Democrat under the age of fifty five or so then you probably have a good impression Bernie Sanders whether you're white black Hispanic Asian or other. You may or may not have as your first choice but you probably think of him favorably. If you're a senior citizen then you may not and Nevada is a relatively young state which also helped earn here. John we've mentioned now that Bernie. Sanders did well among Hispanic voters. And you said that he had a significant turn out operation with political pros on the ground in Nevada. What specifically was the campaign doing? Why did he do so well? With Hispanic and Latino voters and was it a turnout thing where he was just people that he already knew who supported him to turn out or was he working on persuasion in the Hispanic community and campaigning to them in a way that maybe they hadn't been campaign to before. I think it's a little bit of both. His campaign clearly made that a priority and there have been in-depth pieces written in. I know Dave Weigel at the Washington Post on a of reporting on on how Bernie appeal to Latino voters here and he and he sought coming months ago another really good piece in the New Yorker about it as well but that is why the Culinary Union when they finally decided to speak out and not endorse but speak out against Bernie By saying he was going to end their healthcare even if they had endorsed. I'm not sure how much of a difference they could have made. Because he had support within the Culinary Union already with his messaging To to to the Latino community and so turning around that big organization sixty thousand people Just is not that easy in so Bernie saw that and so he started early with them. You may recall that in two thousand eight right after Hillary one New Hampshire the Culinary Union the day after that primary endorsed Barack Obama and made a big show of it and in Obama campaign made a big deal of it but Hillary still one Nevada and she did very well in those caucuses now. She won the popular vote because she didn't understand caucus than Obama did He won an extra one more delegates but Bernie knew from his experience in two thousand sixteen. What he needed to do to to to get the Hispanic vote in the culinary. Union is the Hispanic turnout operation inside of the Democratic Party and so they were very strategic in how they behave this time. Thinking about turnout more. Broadly John How did turn out this year? Compare with turnout in past caucuses given that early voting wasn't an option. I'm still trying to get that final number. As a matter of fact I hope to have it before this podcast and I'm sorry I don't but here's what it looks like When they first had their first caucus I really state caucus in two thousand eight they got about just under a hundred eighteen thousand. I believe the number was four years ago. It was eighty four thousand They didn't have early voting either of those times. They put it in this this year. Four days of it and they had what I thought was a pretty remarkable turn out Seventy five thousand or so and so whatever. The final number turns out to be with voting. Yesterday it's going to be passed two thousand and sixteen in May get past two thousand eight again. I'm not positive which precincts are still outstanding. But there are a lot of them The the that are still outstanding. And so it looks to me like they will. At least eclipse to twenty-six they may get past two thousand eight which. I don't think anybody thought they were going to do. And in general I know caucus can have weird turnout in that. They largely attract the most enthusiastic supporters. Who are willing to spend two hours in a casino ballroom. But is the caucus electorate from yesterday reflective of the democratic electorate in Nevada. From what you can tell it seems to be or within the margin of error and it has been in past caucuses as well. No it may be different this time. Because of the early voting component I mean truly not appear caucus anymore right. It's it's a hybrid. They go in for four days and they just fill out a ballot. Ranked choice voting. They have to choose it at least three. And then those results are supposed to be integrated at each precinct. Which is why. It's taking them so long to to to count it. I also believe by the way That if the race had been close this would have been a really major issue but because it was such a blowout for Bernie and that was obvious from the first results coming in from the entrance polls. They didn't get into any trouble there and so now they're just taking their time counting all the results and double checking the pictures of the of of the the caucus site sheets. But but I have to tell you. I'm pretty sure that this is the last time we're GONNA see a caucus in Nevada and maybe anywhere. Yeah so could have been an Iowa. Two point zero if the race had been tighter. That doesn't bode. Well for caucuses as you mentioned I wanna ask you about what Sanders Chances..
"nevada" Discussed on Model Majority Podcast
"And Yeah it was again very good training and you know hanging out with the volunteers and listening to all the questions at the the volunteers bring up is always something that makes me smile and bring a brace good memories. I hope volunteer training. Like good ole time. Do you know what I mean. Yeah so what are the things that I know you did as well before caucus day itself which we will talk about is also doing some phone banking four the Democratic Party of Nevada. You tell us what those calls or even before. Because I think a lot of people probably know that you do phone banking for a candidate's campaign if you're volunteering either going out to knock on doors or you're going to do a phone calls to reach out to voters. I obviously talked a lot about the Iowa caucus knocking on doors experience. We've all had that experience before. But what is the halls or the phone banking party supposed to be for well? After my training they told me to go then go to the Nevada state Democratic Party headquarters and just just do whatever they say so. I walk in the door. It was a bustling campaign office. It smelled like a campaign office. The air conditioning was turned off and there were kids with laptops phones. I was like okay this now. I feel at home. But the calls that I was making as you say Kevin Unlike when you're working for a candidate's campaign you're recruiting volunteers to knock on doors and also to be precinct captains for the candidate that that means someone who's going to be representing the candidate at the caucus. There's something similar going on with the party. Because every single caucus location as I said needs that person who's going to function as the precinct chair this neutral arbiter of power on the caucus location and so the party has to recruit you know however many hundreds or thousands of people to actually go to each individual caucus on caucus day and preside over the caucus. So the calls that I was making where people who had signed up to volunteer to be what's called a temporary caucus chair so I was. I was given a virtual phone bank and I was. I was told to call throughout this list of volunteers. Who said that they were going to show up and caucus and not just caucus but to run their caucus and I had to call to verify if they were actually showing up and then making sure that they knew about the training and making sure they knew when what time what we're their caucus location was all that sort of stuff and and that was that was that was as fun as most reconfirmation calls. Go but it was kind of funny because there. There was a bit of a flake rate. That is people who said they were going to be precinct chairs who ended up not being precinct chairs and that that was that was interesting too and that happened literally the day before Caucus Day like the day before caucus there were people a few people. Hopefully that actually said Nah. I'm not going to actually run this caucus. Yeah so I went about my calls in my normal Jolly Way. Reconfirming people explaining. Oh yes. You're going to be there at nine. Am and they're like well. What what I can win. So and then people you know I'm going to go for the caucus then I'm like okay. We'll find make sure go out and caucus but yeah. There are plenty of people who were like. Oh no I didn't mean to actually do that so I'm not actually going to be there and so luckily it wasn't my job to replace those people. It was just to get the list of wire needed to be replaced. You know which which look so. I didn't have to actually find the volunteers that would then be plugged in in the stead of those people. But you know it is a little a little disconcerting when you think someone's a confirmed when someone is marked as a confirmed precinct chair and they're like oh no no no. Never Mind not you know. You're like okay but we've talked to you three days ago. I can see this. We talked to you three days ago and you said yes before but okay. You took the training but now you're not so you know. I guess that's the volunteering. That's just how it goes right but but they did have a contingency plan. It sounds like plug in volunteers. We had the capacity to become temporary precinct. Chairs when these supposed- temporary freezing chairs out. Yup I was actually very impressed. Because you know. It's not a very glamorous thing to volunteer for the State Party especially in a presidential year when there are candidates like Elizabeth Warren Mayor Buddha Judge Joe Biden out there that that might be inspiring to some people you know but and I. I was amazed that they were actually out of state. Volunteers especially from California. Who Like me drove out? I think that they might have gotten the the from from Harry Reid or something saying hey we want some more volunteers and a bunch of people just showed up at ten pm last night to the hall and we're all right volunteer. And in those cases they everybody had to sign a disclosure of neutral a neutrality agreements to make sure that they that they were not going to be for a particular candidate and then they were then trained as precinct chairs and and we're giving their assignments and where there were gaps from the Nevada. Volunteers that other states. Volunteers stepped up and presided over a lot of these caucus sites right. And just so folks. Don't have that Connex Harry. Reid was the senior senator from the state of the Vada as well as the Senate majority leader and he was instrumental in bringing Nevada as early voting states who the third spot in the entire calendar. So that is receiving the kind of prominence and attention that it's getting right now and we had a really good conversation with Phil Kim who used to run Nevada for Pork Cory Booker's campaign. I think two three episodes ago. So listen to that too. If you'RE GONNA WANNA Kinda like the history behind why Nevada caucus is the way it is. Today are actually believe it or not. Kevin Phil Kim was in my phone. Bank showed up. Why was you know they can call us? Why didn't get a chance to say? Hi but I was kind of way but it was pretty funny but yeah World Small World but he was also busy so he he was doing. I'm sure he had other things he was helping the party out with too. So you know. Got It okay. So let's fast forward to caucus day. Which is today as we're recording. But who knows when it will be when you guys actually start listening to this episode but just literally give us a talk? Like what time did you wake up? What did you do? What did you have to do the whole day? And what did you end up doing finishing before you went back to your hotel to record the dog with me? Well so because I have a background as a field organizer and doing higher level organizing stuff. They rather than place me inside of a precinct. They had me be what is called a hotline volunteer so adjacent to where the Party leadership sits during the caucus proceedings. There is a big room. Where there is you know about one hundred people who were just like me. Volunteers with WHO were campaign. Kids essentially with phones and laptops and the caucus is a big complicated process. So a lot of times there is confusion about rules or caucus math or heck. The Nevada Democratic Party did a lot of the the the the tallying of the Caucasus using ipads that were distributed to every single caucus locations. So if your IPAD was busted or if you know a senior citizen might not know how to type in things on an IPAD. There's any number of things that you might need a volunteer sitting on a hotline to talk to to talk somebody through in order to get through the whole caucus process so I was sitting in a big room of people while the caucus was going on receiving these in many times. Frantic calls from precinct. Chairs and site leads who were simultaneously receiving a caucus attendees and trying to sign everybody and registered voters doing all the party business and then also later on as they were doing their caucus alignments and then doing the math so the thing is that this is something that needs a little bit of training to understand the ways that you're going to be helping these people so my day to day started off. I woke up at five. Am and I was. I had to report to the Rio. The Rio Hotel in Las Vegas which is where the democratic boiler room ended up being the boiler and with the leadership sits but I was in their phone banking room essentially at the Rio Hotel at about six thirty in the morning to receive my hotline training and once we received that training training was from six thirty until eight and then they funneled us into the actual room where it was just rows and rows and rows of tables and with with with power strips and we plugged in our laptops and our phones. And we you know the precinct chairs were told to arrive at the caucus locations by seven thirty. Am So eight am. Our phones began to ring. And I was assigned to the tech hotline. Which means you know the the calls that were supposed to be followed my way where ones that we're having to do with explaining how to work the technology or so but it ends up being a hodgepodge of calls that you get because you know you gotta understand. Volunteers calling in so a technical problem to a volunteer could be caucus math. Even though there's a number you're supposed to press for the caucus math specialists or for the all the you know but so I answered a lot of different kinds of questions but the I was supposed to be getting questions about how to turn turn on. Your IPAD was really busy so interesting. And so so the cause these volunteer. Call receivers such as yourself. They were divided into different functions and categories. There was supposed to be a number for technical issues that goes to people like you and then for the caucus math issues goes to somebody else and then there might be some other topic. Basically it is categorized. Even though people didn't end up using things that way in the right and understanding that it kind of became a hodgepodge of people who was your in this corner. Why don't you just you know because it ends up? Being everybody who is in that room was was had some form of previous political experience or else that's kind of how they ended up in that room. You know so everybody could probably talk about everything so it was more like okay. You're close to that side of the room. Why don't you stay there and there are people who are like? I don't want to do math. And so they walked over to the to the logistics table or something but I was just like all right. I'm in the tech area so I'll just. I'll just stay here because this is where this is where I am and this is where I'm needed. I guess and you know I got another question for you. How many of these callers. Roughly speaking were doing this with you. Because I think one of the large issues that got exposed in Iowa caucus the barcode that was revealed later. Which is that. They were literally there. I think there were twelve people manning the phone hotline the same function that you were involved in which obviously wasn't enough and then people weren't even getting a calls returned and didn't even report the results and they just went home and when. Abed that mates sounded like you guys had more capacity than twelve people. I tell you I tell you you know. It's funny. There were twelve people doing tech calls and we were the smallest group so just to put that in perspective. You know a friend of the PODCAST Kunia Chris Napa. She was helping out with the with the caucus math side. And that was. I think the the math and logistics people had the most but there were I mean. There were more of the estimated between fifty and eighty. I think I don't know but I don't WanNa get the numbers wrong. The there were. It was a significant amount of experience. Phone bankers who were sitting in this room it was it was it was it was a ballroom half of a big ballroom. That was full of desks and it was pretty much all manned up so it was you know. More than fifty people were in that room. Ready to receive calls and it was. It was very highly organized we had. We had a a dial pad APP that would funnel the various kinds of calls to the various kinds of volunteers and at the same time. All the volunteers were trained up on the same sets of stuff so we even if we got the wrong call we could all sort of address things in the same way and there was also leadership. There you know there. There were several. There were several site leads and actually there was some pretty big wigs from DNC technology department. That I knew what I was an intern for the DNC for the DNC Data Department. Who are probably the ones who are on the back end? Doing all the designing of the of the Google Doc..

"So there's this air of ill-will between Sanders and the Union and it's in this atmosphere actual we're on our way to Vegas that the Union announces a press conference about its endorsement morning. Everybody welcome to the Culinary Union. I know we WANNA talk about the endorsement but before we do that so they come out and say yes. Healthcare is the big issue every human being to have a skit. We believe that by we'd be living choices to we believe that but instead of endorsing a candidate and the official announcement is we've gone in those are our goals while we doing. They endorsed their goals and their values. This every single political candidate right. Now we know vice-president buying for many years we know he's being presumably because they're worried about throwing their weight behind the wrong moderate especially in this environment when the racists still so uncertain but by endorsing healthcare as a goal they effectively have made an anti endorsement of anyone who threatens to take away that healthcare. And it's a pretty remarkable thing that there are anti endorsing sanders. Sanders is really popular among Latinos. He is seen as extremely pro union for his entire career and he's received endorsements from other unions in the state but for this union the Culinary Union. All that other stuff might be less important than the message. Fair hearing which is that a vote for sanders is a vote to eliminate the very thing. They've worked so hard to create so with all this for curious to see how members are reacting. So we're back at the Culinary Union Hall. Where early voting has started. Do you mind if we ask you really quickly. Who you're voting for to have to do anything and because Nevada has a caucus it's a little bit different My candidates are still buying Tom. And instead of picking one person people rank their preferences those month three candidate. And why are they your three candidates now? Joe Biden been with US ever since day. One and amy. She even support Union as well and Tom Sawyer about you can keep doing sean. So and is the insurance health insurance issue for you the most important issue Okola. We've got the best insurance in America. It take me and my family as we're around but failed the newborn. Yeah see we noticed that a lot of people are holding these pieces of paper. So what are you holding? This is the paper for the Union the Union and we realized that it's the same flier that had been texted and emailed and passed around in break rooms all over the Strip to see. I I see that the Union scorecard on the paper. You've highlighted Joe Biden. Judge Amy Klobuchar. Okay came Bernie Sanders. She wrote no underneath. Okay I'm putting up what they want. So it's clear that many people are voting with the union in mind and their healthcare times. You mind if I ask you. So then there's this sort of fascinating encounter. We have our I see. You're wearing a Bernie. Pin. So is it correct to assume that that's revoted for we'll know voting for Insurance on the. You know a couple of candidates who were gonNA keep our attorney going for Joe Barter Amy. Something and the other lady wearing Bernie Pin if you voted for some video because I'm a supporter for him. No but It was something totally different than but I do did come in with Bernie Sanders spin. I'm sorry can you explain that to me what it means to be a support but not vote for him well? This wasn't what we weren't voting for the president's on this one we were holding for What do you call for insurance to keep our insurance going though you are voting for who should be the presidential nominee no? That's not what I was wondering. What were you told? Don't WanNa do this any more? So this guy has clearly gotten the message. This is about health care so much so that he takes it literally and thinks that he's voting on his healthcare not choosing a presidential candidate in which case he would've voted for Bernie Sanders. Just curious to ask you about who you voted for Bernie Sanders all all the way. All the way why now we do meet Union members who chose Sanders but I like Bernie Sanders so much because he's never changed. Interestingly many of these people we speak with say that they haven't gotten a message from the Union telling them that vote for Sanders would take away. Their healthcare. I candidate is Bernice Bernie Burnett others have and they don't care or they like him for other reasons. One of the biggest thing to me as the burden is planning to to give the free school kate. My son is Nicole. Healthcare is just not their top issue. I'm I'm reported with the New York is can I ask you voted for number? One Bernie Bernie Sanders. Yeah so at some point. Clarinet is the Austin talking to this guy who looks to being in his sixties and it turns out. He's been in the Union for twenty nine years and then I make deal. Media Works at a casino called the Golden Nugget. Ed Utility Porter is Cling carpets Polish. The Mammal. Working in. The high place. Asked you this. Who did you vote partner? We answer yet Bernie Bernie Bernie. Yeah we love back. Yeah yeah is any. So we know that Bernie talking Medicare for all and replacing. No No I. Eighteen is a better system you know is for all math. What few people is for all people? Are you worried at all about your great? Medical care is okay. It's okay because you're not a minority. People get access a lot of people. Don't have boxes now. It's a cost money. He if we want to follow up tomorrow are you working so we say goodbye to make deal which was coming Nubia charity and we notice that this woman who had been sort of standing around hovering as we were talking with him follows him to his car listening to everything. I say they are listening. What are you she was so somebody union is here kind of mantra.

"In the meantime I connected with our Las Vegas Political Writer extraordinaire former deputy editor of Latino rebels Now he runs a great site called Enclave and also he has a podcast called. Remember the show. Hector Louis Alamo. He writes for Latino rebels. He's written some amazing pieces and I connected with Hector to talk about the caucus and the lead up to the caucus and the debates and other things he covered and he's out in Vegas on Boston. And here's a conversation that we had hector a man. Oh Hey I feel like a news organization because you've been out in out in Vegas area in Nevada right right. I'm trying to correct myself because my my Spanish always i. I'm trying to not mispronounce state even though it's flipping Spanish word. I wrote something on that. I went to in two thousand sixteen because trump with got in trouble for saying Nevada. It's Nevada not Nevada and people were like boo boo here Nevada. Now Mike No. It's actually Nevada is actually Nevada right. Well listen so you've been. I have so many things to talk to you about but you have been filing. I think the best way I can put. It are sort of essays. I don't even think they're columns. I think they're like observations. And you know you and I've always said like political writers like you're you're you know you're in the. I said it's like you can be like the Enduring Hunter S. Thompson. And you are so. I mean the way I see it is that you know. Especially like the Peop- the Latinos. Let's say let's keep it to Latinos deals that I know personally family and friends data. Don't they're not going to read straight out political columns and articles? They might read a funny weird story about election about the surrounding an election. You know they might read that but they're not gonna read. They don't follow news and they're and they're educated right there. They have college degrees but they don't for whatever reason follow Latino or they don't follow a news article so I'm just really writing for them. You know you've done a fantastic job. You know that I'm a big Fan. I mean I think you're one of my favorite writers and I say that to you all the time so listen. Let's talk about the state I mean. Let's just let's just be up front so that people know You are caucusing. You WanNa Save. Your caucusing for yeah. I'm calling for burning. I mean I don't think I've I've been I've been in the Bernie camps in two thousand sixteen right. Yeah right so so. Let's get that out of the way that doesn't mean that we can't have a conversation because you've been out you've written great pieces. I thought your piece was was just spectacular. And you're going to do another one and you've been filing and following the scene so before we go because I want to do is go through the each candidate and also the debate and then but I want to give me the general sense of this week in the state right now because there has been early voting. What's the buzz? What are people saying? Well you know. We had four days of early voting in my understanding that. That's the first time that that's happened. We've had early voting in in a caucus. I'm also hearing that. The caucus set up. His New Nevada used to have primaries and now we have a caucus caucus but a poll just came up with something. Like three and four Nevada's WANNA go back to the primary System but anyway this four day Early voting a primary caucus thing where you pick three candidates and then those those candidates are sent to the caucus. Which is on Saturday? February twenty-second what I'm hearing is that everywhere. Had Long lines hours long. I I met one woman at the CNN. Townhall on Tuesday at the Sahara Hotel and casino. She said that she went on Saturday. It was so long that she came back on Sunday There wasn't enough volunteers places so it it doesn't look good. It looks kind of IA ISH heading into Saturday. You know you just said it was Iowa Ish but what's the mood I mean? What are people like? You're talking to people you have. You have family of friends you you know. What are people saying in your circles? Or what what is the narrative being shared in the state about the top the front runners? I Know Sanders is definitely up there but yeah I mean I I think the latest polls show that Sanders said thirty five percent polling in Nevada and then second and third were like at Sixteen Fifteen. I think it was Biden and Buddha judge. I mean there's you know there's two camps and it's the same camps really that we're in two thousand sixteen you know do we. Do we go for a safe candidate. That can beat trump or there. We go for somebody who is is Promoting or pushing for the same kind of radical change that trump was pushing for in two thousand sixteen but obviously Bernie represents the diametrically opposed position to that. You know so there's people you know I mean people you know I i. I've a rich friend WHO's for Bloomberg. Says you know we need an asshole to beat an asshole You know there's people who like Buddha judge right. 'cause there's especially in in the suburbs around the Las Vegas Buddha jesuits very popular in the in the in the in the suburbs I filed that one dispatch when I met a British last spring of. That's right and it was. Yeah you did all these dispatches as well like I I I completely forgot about those I have. Yeah but you didn't want on Bernie you did one on on booth you did Kamala Harris. She's no longer in the race. Yeah I mean I went to that Bernie Rally what which is last. March and it was huge. You would have thought that their election was happening any day. It was huge a huge big field. A bunch of people were there was a concert. Talk to me about Latinos with with these candidates in general. I mean what's what's Are People excited as you know and thank you for? Thank you for hooking me up with that group make. The road dead ended up being last night yesterday. I was with them for much of the afternoon and I even stayed with them to watch the debate party because they they had a debate watching party at their community space and they had people. You know the whale all kinds of people from the from the community who brought their kids similar about the same more about that. Because like I I wanna know like what's the mood what did you. What did you find out? These guys are bad ass. Like they're you know they're they they've come out and endorsed. Bernie and every so everybody who goes for for Bernie. They had a debate watching party at their space chair. Setup they had Keitel's they had called earlier polio. They had gone. Shah's they had dump equal. They had everything you know. And they were playing this debate of Bingo. You know which had a thing on me but you know it had like immigration bilingual English ones. The other side was Spanish and they had self like you know the wall I if things get mentioned right and to debate during the break you know. They're they're organized would say you know. So what did you hear mentioned and so you here? You see these like fifty sixty seven year old Latinas Latinos. It's actually very dominated by Latinas. I should I should point out saying what they've heard any crapping whenever Bernie would clap back at boot Chad or or somebody. Yeah let me ask you this it was intergenerational it was it wasn't just a lot of young it was very you know you know. The cameras are very young. You Know High Schoolers Eighteen nineteen twenty two and You know very young but then the people who were there at the debate party were older. You know forty fifty sixty seventies So it was entered intergenerational Latinos Filipinos in there. There's white people there you know so let me ask you. What was you know? Because that's one of the narratives that you hear right. That old people don't vote for older people. Don't vote for Bernie Sanders and I'm not trying to like make this a Bernie Sanders. But did they know that is that is a narrative? Yeah so what did they tell you? Did anyone tell you why they they? They're choosing vote for him. Well actually I got to tell you know you learn a lot when you just talk to your Uber driver. I was talking to this uber driver that she had to be. Maybe fifty six Tina. You're having a newborn. We got to talking about Uber. We got talking about the election and she said she liked Bernie. You know because she's talking about how working ferber's sucked how they take most of her money. They don't give her they give her you know less than half of what what she could. She gets to see what they're what they charge and then they gave her like less. She says less than half of what they charge. And she's like you know I'm for I'm for Bernie because he's the only one who seems like he's going to make things fairer. You know mytalk too when I went canvassing with these two.

"They're still so many questions about what happened in. Iowa can see that Pete voltages presently leading the State delegate count with twenty seven Percent Bernie Sanders with twenty five percent. Candidates are already looking toward New Hampshire opportunity. So thank the people of the Hampshire for a great victory tonight. Moderate candidates people to judge and Senator Amy closure trailed sanders to random breaking news the Democratic presidential race where a national poll out this morning shows the former New York mayor is now in second place with nineteen percent support behind Bernie Sanders Bloomberg whose rise at the polls field by more than three hundred million dollars. An AD spending mayor Bloomberg has not appeared on a single debate stage or a single ballot. But that will change tonight. It's Alex Burns in Las Vegas where Wednesday nights democratic debate was held ahead of the Nevada caucus this weekend from NBC News. The Democratic presidential debate live from Las Vegas Nevada. This was a debate. We were all really waiting for the first time. Mayor Bloomberg has appeared on the stage and really is the first time he has engaged with other Democratic candidates at all since entering the race polls released over the last few days have shown Bloomberg overtaking Joe Biden Nationally. As the moderate runner up to Bernie Sanders the front runner. Thanks to hundreds of millions of dollars that Bloomberg has poured into advertising but for most Americans. This was the first time that they have really been introduced to the man himself so going in we knew that all the other candidates. We're going to try to make that a rough introduction to scuff up the glossy image of himself the Bloomberg puts in TV ads. And right away they did. I think we need something different Than Donald. Trump. I don't think you look at Donald Trump and say we need someone richer in the White House are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns of harassing women and Supporting Racist Policies like redlining and stop and Frisk. Stop and Frisk. Stop and Frisk which went after African American and Latino people in an outrageous way throwing folk close to five million young black men up against the wall. That is not a way. You're gonNA grow voter turnout. They of course after and Frisk is invasive policing policy as mayor of New York Mayor Bloomberg at the beginning of this debate. You took some incoming fire on this. Next topic's let's get into it at two thousand fifteen. This is how you described your policing policy as mayor quote. We put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods. And you explain. That is because that's where all the crime is and early on NBC moderator. Lester Holt asked to address it. You went on to say the way you should get the guns out of the kids hands as the throw them against the wall and I apologize for that policy that what does that kind of language say about how you view people of Color or people in minority neighborhoods. Well if I go back and look at my time in office the one thing that I'm really worried about embarrassed about was how it turned out with stop and Frisk and we started. We adopted a policy which had been in place the policy that all police departments use of stop and Frisk. What happened however was it. Got Out of control from the beginning. He struggled with his responses. We have to keep the lid on crime but we cannot go out and stop people who you know. This was the number one question that Bloomberg would have known was coming more than any other policy issue. This is the one his campaign as worried about from the start of the race. But I've SAT. I've apologized. I've asked for forgiveness but the Bloomberg is not a man known for his political agility. His comfort expressing contrition or for his skin and it showed albums and if we took off everybody that was wrong. On this off this panel everybody. That was wrong on criminal justice at some time in the careers. That'd be nobody else up here and the attacks were unrelenting up until this point Elizabeth. Warren has mostly avoided direct confrontation in debates with other candidates. She's been calling herself the unity candidate but she took a totally different approach. A far more aggressive approach and Mike Bloomberg was her favorite target. I like to talk about who were running against. She landed some of the most stinging blows in the debate drawing a connection between Bloomberg and public enemy number one for the Democrats a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horseface lesbians and I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about mayor. Bloomberg Democrats are perhaps the most contentious exchange of the night and the toughest one for Bloomberg was a lengthy back and forth between him and both and Joe Biden about a number of women who have signed nondisclosure agreements with Bloomberg and his company. He has gotten some number of women. Dozens who knows to sign nondisclosure agreements. Both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace. So Mr Are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story. We have a very few nondisclosure agreements. How many Finnish comedies? None of them accused me of doing anything of than maybe they didn't like joke. I told and let me just let me. Be Agreements between two parties. That wanted to keep it quiet. And that's up to them. They signed those agreements. And we'll live with Warren challenged him over and over to release those women from the NBA's and let them speak openly about their experiences when you say they signed them and they wanted them if they wish now to speak out and tell their side of the story about what it is they alleged. That's now okay with you. You're releasing them on television tonight. Senator said he would not do some of the company and somebody else in this the man or woman or could be more than that. They decided when they made an agreement. They wanted to keep it quiet for everybody's interest coming to sign the agreements. And that's what we're going to let. The question is are the Germans but the latest is what these attacks reflect about the state of the Democratic race and the urgency that the candidates are feeling in this moment Bernie Sanders. Lead is looking increasingly. Strong heading into the Nevada caucuses and as we talked about many times part of that has to do with the fact that the more moderate candidates dividing the votes amongst themselves making it harder for any one of them to emerge as a clear alternative to sanders now incomes Michael Bloomberg with all his money and his power and name recognition but so far he has done more to slow down fell moderates than to thwart Bernie Sanders. Senator winning when you say disown these attacks and you didn't personally direct them. I believe you both got ask yourself. Why did this pattern arise? Why is it especially the case among your supply? Don't think this is actually the case. That's just not true. Look people that Mandela wasn't just Bloomberg on the defensive. The other Democrats also had to take on Sanders country we have the best socialists in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What I miss. Well you'll still. I work in Washington housewives. The first problem live in Burlington House to take on each other's ourselves. Are you trying to say that I'm down or you mocking me? Hearbeat trivial was more open. Hostility more personal bitterness in this two hour debate than in perhaps all the other debates combined. And that's because the stakes for the candidates are higher now and for many of them really for almost all of them. Time may be close to running out. So that's the latest.

An AD spending mayor Bloomberg has not appeared on a single debate stage or a single ballot. But that will change tonight. It's Alex Burns in Las Vegas where Wednesday nights democratic debate was held ahead of the Nevada caucus this weekend from NBC News. The Democratic presidential debate live from Las Vegas Nevada. This was a debate. We were all really waiting for the first time. Mayor Bloomberg has appeared on the stage and really is the first time he has engaged with other Democratic candidates at all since entering the race polls released over the last few days have shown Bloomberg overtaking Joe Biden Nationally. As the moderate runner up to Bernie Sanders the front runner. Thanks to hundreds of millions of dollars that Bloomberg has poured into advertising but for most Americans. This was the first time that they have really been introduced to the man himself so going in we knew that all the other candidates. We're going to try to make that a rough introduction to scuff up the glossy image of himself that Bloomberg puts in TV ads. And right away they did. I think we need something different Than Donald. Trump. I don't think you look at Donald Trump and say we need someone richer in the White House are not going to win if we have a nominee who has a history of hiding his tax returns of harassing women and Supporting Racist Policies like redlining and stop and Frisk. Stop and Frisk. Stop and Frisk which went after African American and Latino people in an outrageous way throwing folk close to five million young black men up against the wall. That is not a way. You're gonNA grow voter turnout. They of course after and Frisk is invasive policing policy as mayor of New York Mayor Bloomberg at the beginning of this debate. You took some incoming fire on this. Next topic's let's get into it at two thousand fifteen. This is how you described your policing policy as mayor quote. We put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods. And you explain. That is because that's where all the crime is and early on NBC moderator. Lester Holt asked to address it. You went on to say the way you should get the guns out of the kids hands as the throw them against the wall and I apologize for that policy that what does that kind of language say about how you view people of Color or people in minority neighborhoods. Well if I go back and look at my time in office the one thing that I'm really worried about embarrassed about was how it turned out with stop and Frisk and we started. We adopted a policy which had been in place the policy that all police departments use of stop and Frisk. What happened however was it. Got Out of control from the beginning. He struggled with his responses. We have to keep the lid on crime but we cannot go out and stop people who you know. This was the number one question that Bloomberg would have known was coming more than any other policy issue. This is the one his campaign as worried about from the start of the race. But I've SAT. I've apologized. I've asked for forgiveness but the Bloomberg is not a man known for his political agility. His comfort expressing contrition or for his skin and it showed albums and if we took off everybody that was wrong. On this off this panel everybody. That was wrong on criminal justice at some time in the careers. That'd be nobody else up here and the attacks were unrelenting up until this point Elizabeth. Warren has mostly avoided direct confrontation in debates with other candidates. She's been calling herself the unity candidate but she took a totally different approach. A far more aggressive approach and Mike Bloomberg was her favorite target. I like to talk about who were running against. She landed some of the most stinging blows in the debate drawing a connection between Bloomberg and public enemy number one for the Democrats a billionaire who calls women fat broads and horseface lesbians and I'm not talking about Donald Trump. I'm talking about mayor. Bloomberg Democrats are perhaps the most contentious exchange of the night and the toughest one for Bloomberg was a lengthy back and forth between him and both and Joe Biden about a number of women who have signed nondisclosure agreements with Bloomberg and his company. He has gotten some number of women. Dozens who knows to sign nondisclosure agreements. Both for sexual harassment and for gender discrimination in the workplace. So Mr Are you willing to release all of those women from those nondisclosure agreements? So we can hear their side of the story. We have a very few nondisclosure agreements. How many Finnish comedies? None of them accused me of doing anything of than maybe they didn't like joke. I told and let me just let me. Be Agreements between two parties. That wanted to keep it quiet. And that's up to them. They signed those agreements. And we'll live with Warren challenged him over and over to release those women from the NBA's and let them speak openly about their experiences when you say they signed them and they wanted them if they wish now to speak out and tell their side of the story about what it is they alleged. That's now okay with you. You're releasing them on television tonight. Senator said he would not do some of the company and somebody else in this the man or woman or could be more than that. They decided when they made an agreement. They wanted to keep it quiet for everybody's interest coming to sign the agreements. And that's what we're going to let. The question is are the Germans but the latest is what these attacks reflect about the state of the Democratic race and the urgency that the candidates are feeling in this moment Bernie Sanders. Lead is looking increasingly. Strong heading into the Nevada caucuses and as we talked about many times part of that has to do with the fact that the more moderate candidates dividing the votes amongst themselves making it harder for any one of them to emerge as a clear alternative to sanders now incomes Michael Bloomberg with all his money and his power and name recognition but so far he has done more to slow down fell moderates than to thwart Bernie Sanders. Senator Win you disown. These attacks and you didn't personally direct them. I believe you both got ask yourself. Why did this pattern arise? Why is it especially the case among your supply? Don't think this is actually the case. That's just not true. Look people that Mandela wasn't just Bloomberg on the defensive. The other Democrats also had to take on Sanders country we have the best socialists in the country happens to be a millionaire with three houses. What I miss. Well you'll still. I work in Washington housewives. The first problem live in Burlington House to take on each other's ourselves. Are you trying to say that I'm down or you mocking me? Hearbeat trivial was more open. Hostility more personal bitterness in this two hour debate than in perhaps all the other debates combined. And that's because the stakes for the candidates are higher now and for many of them really for almost all of them. Time may be close to running out. So that's the latest.

"Threatening our our livelihood here in America and it's a matter of life and death so what about his wealth? I mean one of the monster. People are going after Bloomberg because he's a billionaire but star is a lot of money into the what's the difference between him and Bloomberg or human than any other candidate. Because I mean there's a huge difference I mean I don't even think that's that's why they're they both had money. Yeah they have money the way they got. Their money is completely different than the way they've so we didn't they treated the community is completely different. Common Somebody who leads to stamping was values and about fifty things that are wrong. Not necessarily doing something because they don't want to get tax so that's the reason you know that that. Bloomberg is running because he doesn't want somebody to take like stranglehold on his wealth. And you know to be able to pay what he's to pay in order to get a lot of tax breaks and Tommy. The ones calling that out commas a real threat to the democratic candidates he's a real threat to trump and he's a real threat to Bloomberg because Tom is Amanda Values and everything like I said once people when people find out who he is. It's not even a conversation of losing much. It's about Oh my God. I wish I knew soon. Right and And so so that's the most important part that I WANNA highlight is like. There is a comparison beyond belief You Know Thompson Anybody Anything Thomas. Somebody who has put his money where he needs to put his money him and his wife are part of the giving pledge to give half of the fortune away while their lives so Last question you know a couple of days and all the Like I said we talked about the debate. And how he's not on phase. So what's the final push for you guys? And what is you know? What is success for on Star in Nevada on Saturday? I mean what? What would you success for us? As as hoping that at the process of the collection here in the state is is has parents on it because when it is then we will be convicted. Doria's and I don't think recovery is measured by the way of getting first place like if only you know elderly and the voice of those who voted for us. I think definitely being in place in the top top tier candidates. I think is is is a victory here I think like I said hoping that the communities that are that need to be represented the need to be elevated the black and Brown community. Ap I mean the working class here in Nevada that both our folks are voting for Tom. I definitely hope. And it'll be a victory when those folks come out of the voting process and voting early votes and feeling like your voice matters I think that's because Tom someone who has invested in registering folks slow. You know definitely pushing for for voting rights and and voting access so so that is really what victory in a positive agree looks as Dante stretch or out there making calls. Knocking doors organizing. Van Me at We have I mean I'm a big. I'm a big love Tacos and you know parties at home you know. I WANNA be with us to do a party at the polls because I want people to four working really hard and maybe they don't get time to make the meal to go be go vote you know be able to go get food no and even if you're not loading and you see like grabbing. Tacos like if I go to Taco Joe. Basically tacos in Nevada on Saturday. At least you'll get some good food. It's just I really appreciate you taking the time I know. You're you're super busy. But thank you for being on Latino rebels already so much for having me out of the day. Okay bye we're GONNA probably do another caucus show. I'm also dropping this New Hampshire conversation this week because I need to do it. I was out in New Hampshire. I talked to nine Latino leaders. Forty-five minutes it's happening so stay tuned for that and we'll be back. Friday. I think we'll come back Friday with a caucus shows. Well I've invited actor Louis Animal. Anyway like we always do. We always close out with Larry Menace.

"To really flex its muscle and we sit in the middle of Arizona and California and certainly Arizona is changing is still largely a conservative state while California's like. The on it's up on the opposite end of its spectrum and so Nevada still forming its political identity, which means that candidates can come here and really tested a message on an electorate and get an idea whether or not. It will have national traction and I'm certainly biased I really do believe the road to the white. House runs through the LAS, Vegas Strip and given that the large labor percentage of the states and the proximity to California I imagine there's a lot of things that are really unique to organizing in Nevada that are specific to the state. What are some of those things? Definitely we for example, we'll have caucus sites in major casinos on the LAS. Vegas Strip. Nowhere. Else for that will happen in the country and it's because so many people work in those casinos in deserve the opportunity to caucus our caucus will have. Some really rural sites and we'll. have. Caucus. That have early voting in grocery stores. We have one of the most accessible voting systems in the country and all of that, and it's pretty neat Nevada. Can you actually explain exactly how that works if there's a caucus and early vote yeah. It'll be the first time. We do an early vote with the caucus and the intention is to get more people involved in the caucus process generally, but also to avoid some of the. Long lines that we saw in two thousand sixteen we want to make sure that people have access to the caucus stem if they can't wait in line for three hours to get into Gaza and that's not an accessible system so people will be able to early caucus enlarged to the way that they can early vote. They'll be more ways to be counted and they'll be doing this in grocery stores in casinos casinos on the Strip is really yes the picture I'm loving. Yes there will be caucus sites. At four different casinos on the Las Vegas Strip in banquet room so that employees can make sure that they go down and make their voices heard in the electoral process does mean that the timing is different on election day slash caucus day in Nevada, will we know the results at different times than we would in another state? I'm not sure how the party's GonNa Handle. The early caucus results in whether they'll count everything on. Caucus J. or if they're gonNA have pre counted everything else and then have it prepared for the caucus. I suspect that they will wait to count everything at once but I'm not sure traditionally during the General Election Nevada is the closest swing state to California. So gets a lot of volunteers come in from California but California's primary. This time is right after the Nevada caucus. How do you think that's going to impact your caucus day? Yeah. It'll be so interesting because historically at least since I've been here. going on ten years in Las Vegas California volunteers have come in busloads to do weekend canvassing to help campaigns with volunteer work. That's necessary. Whatever's wherever there have been holes to fill or gravy to be added to the mix Dave really essential and I don't see that happening this time around unless something dramatically changes in the Democratic primary and we go down to one candidate, and so it may create a shortage of necessary bodies. It may change the way that Nevada and step up and volunteer. I'm not sure but. Is Primary Two weeks after our caucus and they too have early voting. So they're going to be tied up with their own primary elections and. Interesting to see how candidates treat that and whether they try to bind a Nevada California strategy to be successful in both states, we'll see you're an experienced organizer in the state. To campaigns traditionally organize themselves where there specific roles they used for out of state slash California volunteers that would now have to be filled by Nevada. The way it works is out of state folks will come in and be part of blitzes. So if we know that we're GONNA have a busload of two hundred volunteers from California, then we'll plan a canvas. So going door to door in an area that maybe we haven't been able to spend as much time in, and now we're going to be able to saturate or will take a really strategic area that matches the population of volunteers coming in. So it was an all Latino of volunteer bus coming in from California we. Plan, a Latino Canvas. What we'll see is that campaigns are gonNA have to invest a lot more in filling that need with Nevada ins and making sure that they get as many Nevada volunteer as possible and it's certainly doable. There's enough interest in attention and folks who want to be heart of the political process in Nevada. It'll just be a question of whether or not campaigns have the bandwidth to get them organized time. That's interesting. So it seems like even if there are a lot of Nevada's that want to be involved. Voting is paramount for them in that time period, and if they're not used to having that kind of like muscle memory of volunteering before every election, it could be hard to fill those gaps without the Californians coming in. Yeah. So campaigns may have to think strategically about not being able to have that extra bump at the end definitely and figuring out how. To. Build for that, and it's I think why we saw so many states. So many campaigns getting started really early in the state and really trying to build out their infrastructure. Is it Nevada or Nevada? How do you say the name of the State Nevada always Nevada always about how much does it annoy people in the state to hear them say Nevada so An original Nevada and I was born and raised in Miami Florida and when I first moved here, I would say Nevada because if you speak Spanish like I do it sounds similar and I was corrected. So quickly like people will call you out in meetings to correct you to say Nevada, and now I can't hear it. So if someone says it wrong, it's like hearing nails across a chalkboard kind of thing. So it's it's a big thing too big thing here yet people will literally call you out in meetings a couple of years. Ago My boss was a native Spanish speaker. We had all this great polling on the state and on issues, and so she went and she briefed the hundred most important progressive leaders in the state and she said Nevada and in the middle of the meeting, the person who had organized the meeting called her out on it and she got so frazzled. She basically couldn't finish. She was so frazzled by it, and then three weeks later veep ran episode with the exact same plot line and only confirms that our lives are veep our lives are. I think it's funny because I have a running joke with a friend of mine that are political lives oscillate between veep and West Wing and on good days Brown West Wing on most days ron veep but it really runs the that's the spectrum that we. Know and occasionally now for in impeachment then we're in house of cards, right? Every day it's beep. Yeah. Actually thank you so much for joining us. It's been a.

"As I mentioned a couple of days ago on the Post New Hampshire pod. I'm very excited to have John. Ralston is our guest today to talk about all things data. John has a storied career in Nevada. He's written for three newspapers. hosted a television shows. Now he started on online news site called the Nevada independent Which is just a terrific side. I encourage you to check it out. In the next ten days after that and is active presence on social media And he's he's a good blend of someone who he's a journalist so he can do traditional reporting but he also Is a data. Geek knows the numbers in Nevada backwards and forwards. So he's someone who's going to help guide all of us over the next ten days he'll also be one of the moderators of the NBC and MSNBC debate. That takes place in Nevada next Wednesday. Which I think we'll be Like New Hampshire an important debate so You Know Nevada is going to be important you know in in for us in in. Oh Eight. It was an important state because we split Iowa New Hampshire. We came into Nevada competed. Really hard things began to get superintendents. In the Obama Clinton raise really Nevada before we even moved to South Carolina. Different Tenor Hillary. Actually when the raw vote We won the delegates largely because we outperformed her pretty significantly in the rural areas And you know it was very important for years ago. Because we had Bernie and Hillary Hillary was declared the winner very narrowly over Burning Iowa. And then Bernie won a blowout win in New Hampshire and they want the Nevada both campaigns all in and Hillary one and I think that helped her stabilized her campaign and provided foundation for her This is more cloudy with not a two person. Race it's You know five to person race and so It'll be the first time These candidates on scale or talking to Communities of Color it's another caucus so of course we hope it gets executed. Well and and people are able to participate easily and and the votes counted quickly but inaccurately but it's also a test of organization and so who's got the ability to organize statewide. There's four congressional districts in Nevada. I WanNa Talk to John Ralston about each of them so you can learn more about them. one of them Offers an odd number of delegates of CD. One has five delegates which means you know. Maybe there's this narrower five candidates roll viable over fifteen percent and get one but in a scenario where there's less than five The person who ends up being on top gets an extra delegate And so I think they'll be a particular attention of paid on CD one which is kind of the inner core of Las Vegas of the urban core And so I think It'll be fascinating to see. You know strength with Latino voters or not that candidates have who does well in the urban areas suburban areas You know who who does well the African American community? So I think there'll be some important lessons to coming out of Nevada that we might be able to used to have a better understanding of what's going to happen in the calendar as we go to states that You know have more diversity And so I think we can learn some important lessons about who's building strengthen those communities And WHO's not? I'm also talking to John Today. It's Thursday we learned that the Culinary Union powerful union that represents a so many of the people who work in the hospitality industry in Nevada in the casino industry. Have a big announcement today. We don't know what's going to happen. We'll be dropping this pod later this afternoon. Odds are People who follow carefully John included. Believe it's going to be a no endorsement And continue to say that they Oppose Bernie Sanders because they think Medicare for all Could hurt their members and they're not happy with how some of Bernie Sanders supporters are are treating the Culinary Union Maybe they'll surprise us and endorse someone but you know the color. Union represents a tremendously large amount of workers Braga Obama was Blessed enough to get their endorsement in in two thousand and eight so You know they'll be a factor here If they decide not to endorse than I think the question just is. How much damage can they do to? Bernie and of course the question. A union is not monolithic. Its members so they're still going to be members of the culinary that's poor Bernie but are they able to reduce that number in a way that could have Some impact So you know I think As hard as it was for for Leads Amy Klobuchar Tavern Great Performance New Hampshire? It's even harder here. She didn't have many staff on the ground. She started advertising. So I think we need to watch carefully to see if Amy Klobuchar can fully leveraged her performance In Nevada Joe Biden. Obviously coming off of two poor performances in Iowa New Hampshire a lot of focus on South Carolina appropriately but Nevada's a state where demographically the type of state is campaign. Has Long said they should do well in. So I'm sure that maybe Joe Biden's campaign doesn't think they need to win But certainly Bouncing back into the top three I think would be important for them. heading into South Carolina Mayor Coming off two strong showings wants to continue that You know folks on the ground in Nevada Think he's got a very strong organization As Does Bernie Sanders Does Elizabeth Warren So we'll see if repeat I'm sure for them As a as an underdog they want to continue to outperform expectations so Continuing to maybe get into the one or two spots probably where they'd like to be Elizabeth. Warren I think we'll we'll throw everything she can in Nevada To try and a write her she'd been getting to the top three so you know. A lot of people have a lot riding on Nevada. I don't know if people will drop out after Nevada I think a lot of these candidates want to at least make it to Super Tuesday and and see where they might be able to get some delegates but It'll be fast and again. I think the other thing in that as we have a debate. We'll see how important that is. I'm sure we'll be important because like I would new Hampshire A lot of people are fluid And I think they'll be looking for more information and of course we don't know yet if Mike Bloomberg will be on that debate stage And so that could be a factor as well even though he's not contesting Nevada Given his rise in the polls and all of his spending a lot more coverage of his record in New York He could be front and center in that debate. So if you care about this nomination fight And want to know all you can about it. There's no better person to to listen.
