America's next top chamber, modelled: the Senate battle
"In, America's elections just six weeks away. The most important thing to be decided is who will win the presidency. Time before. has there been a clear choice between two parties to visions to philosophies and two agendas for the future. There's never been a vision like this. Sleepy. Joe Jeff from. What pundits had been talking a lot less about is which party will end up with control of the Senate, the legislature's upper house. Attention and donations have focused on Senate races. This week is a fierce battle begins over the replacement of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader. GINSBURG. The president plans to use the power the voters gave him to make a nomination. Senators will use the power the vote gave us. Either provide or withhold consent. As we say, fifth. Republican senators are keen to get a nomination through before the elections. Earlier. In the year, the party seemed set to keep its majority but President Donald. Trump's handling the pandemic and racial justice protests have opened the possibility the Democrats could take it. In America's rigid two party system control of the Senate is a big determinant of what any government can actually get done. But forecasting which party will win control is more complex than it might seem. Predicting Races for Congress is a bit more complicated than predicting the race for the presidency. There are thirty five different races fought in different states between different candidates over different issues and often using different rules. Then Rosenheck is the economists data editor. I have spent the past few months building a statistical model that seeks to predict the results of this November's congressional elections for the House of Representatives, and the Senate in the United States and so how. Do you get past those complexities to t to model it then? So our model makes use of a few broad types of information. It first looks at the state of the race nationally using generic ballot polling as well as the president's approval rating, and if you other predictors to say, okay, we think this is going to be a good year for the Democrats a good year for the Republicans overall. Then it drills down to the state level and. says. Okay. What did we know about this Senate race before we saw our first poll of that race? Well, we know how it voted in past elections. We know if there's an incumbent or not. We know the candidates fundraising totals. If there's an incumbent, we know how they voted in Congress. We know how much experience in politics candidates have, and then the final step is to blend those prior expectations with whatever the actual polls of the race. Say, and so it synthesizes all of that information in two and overall prediction by exploring three hundred fifty thousand different scenarios for the Senate and four point thirty, five, million for the house every single day. So it conservative explore every possible universe. We can think of that this election might take and see which scenarios are most probable but the universe that we're having these elections in is one that contains what the historical data don't, which is a pandemic. That is a very good point and it is definitely a weakness. We don't know whether one party or the other will benefit from that. But I think what we can say is that it would needs some pretty large effects that would need to be consistent and systematic across states to drive the results far outside the confidence intervals that we would expect based on decades and decades of data on past elections. With those caveats behind this then what does the model currently predict for? November. The model shows that the Democrats are a clear but narrow favorite to win back the Senate and currently shows that they have a sixty seven percent or two in three chance of winning the upper chamber, and it's kind of an interesting path of how they get there because assuming that they lose Doug Jones seat in Alabama, which is very conservative state they need to flip four Republican held seats and they only lead in four states and they would need to win all four that would be something of a tall order and what are those four states what are the issues there So the Democrats have pretty clear leads in Colorado and in Arizona in Colorado Democrats have nominated John Hickenlooper is a moderate former governor. He is currently leading in the polls against the Republican incumbent Cory Gardner. The picture in Arizona is similar you have a Republican incumbent and is now facing an extremely strong Democratic nominee in Mark Kelly. WHO's an astronaut? He's raised an enormous amount of money are model certainly thinks those two are not short flip the Democrats but eighty ninety percent that range then. There are two more states in North Carolina. You have a rather unloved Republican incumbent clue has been running consistently behind, and then finally there is main where Susan Collins, the most moderate Republican in the Senate. Now faces a very tough challenge from the speaker of the State House of Representatives who is up by maybe five six points on average. So you're got a headline prediction of the Democrat chances. Here is based on those four races being cinched up I mean is that really so certain? So. The reason why the model is so bullish on the Democrats is what we're calling the long tail, the donkey's long tail. There is a surprisingly extensive list of sort of Second Tier Senate races in which Democratic candidates are underdogs, but have a realistic credible shock to come from behind and win. So that's I Alwa- that's Kansas. That's both the seats that are up for election in Georgia, Montana Alaska and South Carolina, and even Texas so in every one. Of these races, Armato thinks it is more likely than not that the Republican will win however the odds of the Republicans win all of them in the Democrats win none are not so great and if Democrats even score one or two upsets from this very wide list of targets states, their position gets a lot

Fauci disagrees with Trump on coronavirus
"The United States has not rounded the corner that is from Dr Anthony Fauci. The Nation's top infectious disease expert delivering a blunt specifically worded rebuttal to the president to, of course, Said said the other day that the US is rounding the corner on the pandemic. I'm sorry but I have to disagree with that because if you look at the thing that you just mentioned the Statistics Andrea. The. Disturbing. Disturbing. The US Steph told you shy of two hundred, thousand number of new cases hovering around forty, thousand, a day and an influential model. At the White House sites all the time predicts the death toll will more than double by the end of the year. Four hundred thousand people dead by the end of December, and yet trump's behavior continues to scorn mask-wearing or social distancing his rally yesterday you see it three thousand supporters more than that. Actually packing an airport hangar in Michigan without masks without social distancing. And and you might say why why are they doing that? It is clear. They are following the leader the person that they are there to support. They are following the president just listen to them and then listen to the president. Care for it. It's that simple. I don't see it for myself. I am young and likable are year are not young. People are very strong. It gets this horrible disease. Temperature taken already, and I'm not saying not necessarily here. Everybody's been tested and I've been tested a hard time understanding people when they. So that's why I don't wear. You can hear me right now I can hear you you're going to have to take. You can take it off your your health how many your wet Well if you don't take it off your very muffled. Those trump supporters Jim Acosta speaking to them getting those very powerful Soundbites Jeremy Diamond is out front and Jeremy You know very strong words from Dr Voucher tonight specifically using the words rounding the corner. No, we're not right. Exact words the president used to rebut his claim. Yeah, no questionnaire in Doctor FAUCI typically tries to avoid directly contradicting the president's or directly confronting and putting himself in opposition to the president, and it tends to happen quite a bit simply by the fact that the president often downplayed the threat of this virus in Dr, Fauci is stating the facts, but it is notable to see dumpster here directly contradicting the president saying, I have to disagree with him on that and he does because ultimately Dr Foudy does rely on. The facts you relies on the science and the facts and the science show that the president by any metric you consider is wrong when he says that the United States is rounding the corner on this and of course, we started this week Erin with the revelation that the president had intentionally misled the American public about the deadliness of virus. He said that he likes to downplay it, and what's remarkable is that we are finishing this week with the president continuing to do. Exactly that because the president is saying that we around the corner, he is saying that the numbers of corona virus cases are plummeting. When in fact we know that we are at a plateau of nearly forty thousand cases nearly a thousand deaths per day and Dr found she is warning about a potentially difficult fall and winter, and of course, it's also remarkable when you see this rally that the president is holding three thousand more than three thousand people huddled together very few. Of them wearing masks and obviously it's coming from the fact that the president in his rhetoric has really downplayed those things. Yes he has acknowledged in in recent weeks. That mask wearing is important. He is called a patriotic, but he is still not modeling that public health behavior, and of course, for months on end, the president downplayed some of those significant public health safety measures and as you just showed in that video, the president's words. So often being mimicked by his own supporters. Jeremy Thank you very much earlier. We spoke to David Plyler these local Republican official in North Carolina and he spoke out this week urging president trump to wear a mask during his rally in that state the state by the way I wanna make it clear has a mask mandate. So we asked him why why does he feel the president should wear a mask and here's what he said. The president is a citizen of the United, States Nettie wants North Carolina. is asked to voluntarily do that not is a matter of health alone. But in the leaders situation, it allows the leader to be seen by people he or she represents and they generally hopefully would follow suit as an elected official. I've been asked to look out for the safety and health of our community, and that's exactly what I was doing. So. Yeah. Know that's just the reality right? That's how it should be but this has become political and plyler happens to be Republican. So he got some feedback on his comment about the president. Here's what he told us about. Well I got backlash from everybody they didn't call it say I'm a Republican or Democrat. I hadn't felt on for south. Carolina. Who taught me a cuss words? A sailor has never heard before. We also ask piler why he felt the need to speak out right? Why? Why did he do it? He could have just been quiet and just rolled his eyes and been angry about it but he didn't he spoke out and he said that mash to be worn, the president should wear one. Why do you do that? It's something we have to do. No chores. And this is not the first time that plague of this time has hit this country nor will it be the last I'm sorry to say in we've had plagued across the United States. We've had things in Europe. We've had him an England China just goes around the world I just hope we can get out of this. So. reasonable. So calm collected. I want to go now to Dr Jonathan Reiner Director of the Cardiac Cath Lab at George Washington University Hospital who else would advise the white? House. Medical team under President George. W.. Bush. So you heard Dave plyler right I mean it just just just so reasonable. So clear. And and he wants the president's followers to to wear masks wants the president to wear masks you heard them. They they they scorn it. They disdain it. It comes from the top. Do you think it's possible to pandemic would be a lot less worse if the president had from day one said where mask. I think if the president had said from day one everyone is wearing a mask. We'd have got forty five thousand deaths in this country and I say that because that's extrapolating German experience they've had a middle of the road haven't been the best. They haven't been the worst they been okay in their pandemic response. And they've had about ten thousand deaths. We have four times the population of Germany. We'd have about forty, five, thousand deaths in this country. So about one hundred, fifty, thousand people would be alive if you WANNA think about why we still have forty thousand cases day and a thousand deaths today in this country is because. We're still talking about masks. It's so basic. It just seems so nefarious now that we've heard the president. Really articulately express how dangerous this virus was on February seven. He knew the route he knew he knew how lethal the virus was. He knew that this was ACM dramatic people. He understood yet he decided not to protect the people. It was a conscious decision not to protect the people even now even today. Do you think his supporters would go and be unmasked. If they knew what he knew you think Herman Cain would have gone to Tulsa. Sit there shoulder shoulder without a mask knowing what the president knew. So so you know you Dr. Fouled. She the president said that we were rounding the corner the latest in his many salvoes sang right it's going away. But that's what you just said. Doctor felt she came out today and we're not rounding the corner, right? I mean he didn't. He didn't talk around it or generally obliquely rebutted he rebutted it using word for word because he felt it was important and then he went on to say this. When you're in the middle of a pin damage and you're trying hard to address all the appropriate issues, it is truly a waste of time. The bunk nonsense but unfortunately, we had to do that. Frustration is coming through in a way I haven't seen it before. I admire the man. So much I'm he is a brilliant scientist who's devoted his life to protecting America from all kinds of horrible pathogens. And he still added and he he he he does not get discouraged. Look. It is a waste of time for him to have to deal with some this nonsense, but it's necessary. He has to debunk we rely on him. If only the the White House brought him out to these press events and had an let the press on Moss as can questions wouldn't that be refreshing? I'm grateful for him everyday

"To like really up. End The way The Power Systems. That keep these people's lives and you know from being what they want and I would say that Warren makes the same kind of argument and the rest of the field is really version of. I can be trump and person you trump and I think I might bring it back to and also I think the trump and and you know in the Biden message kind of like I'm going to restore things to normal yeah Go back to the way things were and that's hard for two reasons one. This may be the election where voters actually do want that because they are so traumatized by trump. And there's a nephew just like I just want him to go away. I want him to Just memory I things to go back to normal. That's never what voters are dude. This may be the time they do that. But the other problem Pretoria Democratic primary is hey going back to the way. Things were isn't so great for a lot of people who consider themselves it's sort of like the flip of the way a lot of Democrats responded to trump's message which was you know make America great again while again like when they're being great for me and so Biden trying to get people say like let's go back to when it was better. Things were calmer It does seem like there's a chance that a lot of voters will say better was not better for me like an agreement with the what is. I think you're right that the the there are a lot of other differences but the core similarity of trump warnin sanders. Saying like was not working. We got to change it up. Yeah I mean there's there's I think you. I think Biden could do it but there's definitely attention you have to acknowledge that it's not just everything was great in two thousand sixteen that there's any has been trying to do that but. I think that you know what I've learned in politics is that you're not winning when you're just trying to beat somebody else. You're winning when you have your own argument. You have your own agenda and it can stand independent of whoever. Your opponent is then. That's when you can really galvanize people to your side and then I do credit sanders and his campaign for building that kind of campaign that stands You know obviously trump is shaping the atmosphere but they are not shaping their race to beat him. You know that's not their origin story. And it's everyone else's organ story in the next couple of four. I have a lot of views about why. Why is it that Elizabeth? Word isn't doing as well as Bernie Sanders. Which are what which are gender Just you know she is. I think she's the best communicator in the field. Bar None I think she's a master at it. I think she her stump speech is I could recite it from word and yet she such a good Present her that she makes it fresh every time. It super assessable. She has a plan for everything but I think that Her life story is just as compelling as Sanders in terms of being somebody. Who's always been on the side of fighting for change and trying to You know make things more fair for the people that that don't do as well in the country And you know still. He's considered to be the one who's more Sincere who's more authentic right? I heard that from a voter and a lot of caucus. Why why is that? Why is Elizabeth Warren Story? You Know Schools Amino Mom. A schoolteacher worked really hard to become a bankruptcy lawyer and like his worked for decades to fight banks to make rules more fair and been pretty successful at doing it and getting some results you know. Why why she? A woman in her thirties told me in east Las Vegas after she finished caucusing for Sanders that she. She said that she didn't think Warren was authentic. And I said why and she said I just don't think she's She's been co opted by the establishment. And I said what makes you think that? And she said it's that that she had been covered so much by the mainstream press over the course of two thousand nineteen that that made her suspect that the establishment was for warn. That is going through some somersaults to convince yourself. You have a good reason for why you know like a woman in her early thirties. I'm a mother and as well. What about the coverage that? Sanders has changed. Well now. It's it's very different. Yeah Yeah it is and it doesn't mean people doesn't mean this woman you're talking about. Our voters are skeptical of Warner's or of warriner sexist. It's certainly not overt sexism but it just like what I've come to understand. Just how deep these models we hold in her head of what leaders look and sound like and we just default to the men we just do. This field started with a lot of strong female candidates that people expected would be serious contenders and it does seem like an. We don't know exactly how the next couple of weeks ago but it does seem like when we get to the final round. We might not have any women at all right. What does that do for you? I mean this is something that you're I have crossed over and I'm never going back so I I now. I see the world very differently than I did before I used to think I used to Bristle like I. Have you know colleagues in Bama White House Who would say it's still a man's world and they would and I would like I'd like to hear that because I said that that diminishes what I've accomplished this is not a man's world. I'm doing great and this man in this world and now I realized I wasn't doing great man's world I was doing great making the man's world run. Well I was doing great perpetuating the power cycles that kept women and people of color out of power. That's what I was doing and as someone who rose to be the White House communications director. Yeah I was ten years older than the guy at the head of before me Dan. Pfeiffer who you know who is a good friend of mine and I was really grateful. He brought me into the White House to be his deputy. I was ten years older than him. And then I got this job after. He was promoted to be the president senior advisor. And I was communications director so as you need him again ten years and I sort of live. My life is to be like. Oh don't be understand yes. There are different standards for women. So don't hold yourself. Don't be disappointed that you're not that you didn't get behind the community that you're forty five when you came to communications director and Dan was thirty five without. Don't don't be disappointed understand. Just be proud of the effort that you put in to get there and now. I'm like no stop expecting to do worse than the man right so when I see women and it's a Gut Punch every time I see a woman candidate not do well because I know I see the like she's shrill or she can't win or the you know these the things that were remaining from a patriarchal system that keep them out and I think that you just have to keep talking about and you have to. You know like Warren credit her she talks about electability talks about how women win and how she's won every race and but you also talked about which is interesting to me that one of the things you think. She does successfully is neutralize the sexist arguments in part at by in her speech he tells the story the way every event ends with. She's telling about how the CFP her her Consumer Protection Agency was created and that it was like the banks needed to have watchdog the toasters needed to have a watchdog from has she had. They were when she was growing up and they used to catch fire all the time and she says how do I know. They caught fire well and that her father bought her a fire extinguisher. And the way you talk about this is that she is saying to women Look this is a relatable story but also like I needed men to help me protect me which is itself saying like yeah. This is kind of sexy. I think she's trying to. I think that this is why her hurts stump speeches. I find it so genius. Trying to meet voters where they are in the toaster story. What she says is. My daddy was so upset because her toaster-oven kept catching on fire. My Daddy was so upset that he bought.

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

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

"south carolina" Discussed on Campaign HQ with David Plouffe
"So let's talk about your race a little bit so i WanNa talk about some of the substance. And and what the hell has happened to Lindsey Graham but undefined? But I'm sure you talk to people both who are thinking about volunteering their time for you in South Carolina or donating their money. Who say love. You really think rams gotta go but how can we win? So what's your elevator pitch on How you get fifty percent of the vote In South Carolina. Well first of all David. One thing is. You have to dispel the method South Carolina's Ruby Red. Most people like to make it out to be right and you know President Obama in two thousand. You guys didn't we weren't one of the battleground seats in two thousand eight. But even given that he only lost the state by one hundred and fifty thousand votes right and that's without doing much advertising or anything in this thing we got almost forty five percent there. Yeah yeah that's exactly right. So you know. President Bongo Lost South Carolina by eight points in two thousand eight. He Lost Georgia seven and in two thousand twelve. He lost us by nine. And I think he lost Georgia by eight so in many ways Georgia and South Carolina very similar. The the only difference is we don't have a huge Atlanta right. Would which is such a huge pocket vote And so I often tell folks the problem that we've had in South Carolina. They say well why can't Democrats win is because we really haven't had the party infrastructure for well over a decade to allow us to get our message out to really build the apparatus that we need to reach out to voters and as a result African American voters. Just don't turn out to vote in the state. We have more African American voters in South Carolina than they do. In North Carolina Twenty eight percent of our population of voting Registered voters are African American and as opposed to twenty three percent in North Carolina. And there's pockets to to improve that we got four hundred thousand unregistered black voters in the state right. Now say that again. Four hundred thousand unregistered black voters in South Carolina and as I said in two thousand eight Rock Obama lost by one hundred fifty thousand votes. So the votes are there We just gotTa we gotta get them activated now part of it is. There's never been a candidate that has run statewide like me. There's never been an African American. You know sort of the top of the ticket really because the presidential will probably not play in South Carolina much so at the top of the ticket that has had the life type of experiences that I've had but at the same time you know I can go into a rule white or black county and talk to farmers about The combines had just bought right or what crops at their Their plant in this year at the same time. I can go to the Ports Authority or I can go to Michelin and BMW and talk about the importance of investment and other legislation. How that impacts them. So I'm this campaign is a very very unique one Where I'm going to have the resources to probably put on the best field operation in the history of the state And many ways. We're taking a playbook that Stacey Abrams had in Georgia which is expanding electorate register more voters. And then you go to every part of the state you don't you don't take any part of state for granted and you ask for the vote. Does that mean you're going to get all the votes in red counties no but if you cut the margins you can win this. And that's what puts me and ease and then to the fact Lindsey Graham's different guy. This is not the same Lindsey Graham as Just six years ago. Six years ago Lindsey Graham won with fifty four percent of the vote against a good friend of mine who who raised a little less than a half million dollars. We race seven million dollars last year and that's not even the calendar year This is going to be the probably the most expensive race in the history of the state and Lindsey has a fight on his hands right so By the way I hope our nominee takes that approach to which is in the battleground states. You know they're talking everybody everywhere. 'cause you know the truth is losing some counties? Sixty forty rather than seventy thirty can make the difference. So let's talk about so you clearly are going to focus on registration. You're gonNA focus on turnout. You're going to focus on building a great grassroots organization to accomplish both of those things but it's fair to say now. I HOPE OUR NOMINEE WIN SOUTH CAROLINA. Super Unlikely Right so for you to win. There's going to have to be some voters who vote trump harrison talking about. Who Do you think those voters are and why they may abandon Graham? Or you know those voters just. Don't they vote trump and they say a pox on both Jamie End Lindsey Graham? Right right great point. Yeah this is the thing. We are going We're going all across the state I was just in Lancaster. County South Carolina. This is a county that went for Donald Trump. Sixty one thirty five. I'm going to send you this. Pitcher man I expected you know we were going to talk to a senior community. I expected thirty forty. We had thirty or forty. Rsvp's three piece. I walk in this hall man and their two hundred and fifty people and I walk in and I can tell you. These are not traditional Democrat voters They're senior white voters in South Carolina. And I walk in. And as soon as they see me they stand up and they start chanting sin Lindsey homes in Lindsay home. I almost had a mini heart attack. Right there there in some of the folks come up to me and they say you know. I just don't know what has happened to Lindsey Graham. I voted for him before and I just don't know what's happened to them and some of them have frustration that he didn't stand up for John McCain Against attacks by the president many of them's talk about you know I don't know if you that we did a focus group with white women in Charleston South Carolina and Charleston so significant to the vote and it. These women were college educated but they were Moderate Republicans or independent and one woman said to me Said to the the moderator. She said You know I don't know what's happened to Lindsey Graham. I don't know why he didn't stand up for his friend John McCain and if he didn't stand up for his John McCain then what would he do for me right I mean I? It was a campaign ad right there. Itsel wrote itsel. But that's that's something that I hear all the time across the state where getting independence in Republicans coming to our rally because frustrated People were tired of the division they are tied of the hatred and they WANNA be unit united they they WANNA unify And the way that I talk about issues in South Carolina is not in the traditional DC frame as I tell folks all the time this is not about Democrats versus Republicans it's not about progressive versus conservative ultimately. It's about what's right versus wrong and it's wrong to be in a state where we've had four rule hospitals to close over. The past. Few years is wrong to be in a state where Two years ago. Fourteen of our forty six counties had no Obgyn's Republicans have refused expand Medicaid. They're almost three hundred thousand people in South Carolina who don't have health care right now. They should if he lived in any other state. They probably would have healthcare but here in South Carolina. They don't a third of our state doesn't have access to broadband right. How in the world do we expect our kids to compete with the rest of the world when they can't even connect with the rest of the world and all of these things all of these issues and problems have been here under the watch in two of Lindsey Graham? Who's been there for twenty plus years and all he cares about is flying around air force. One yeah well pretty powerful message. I'm sure your brain. Which is he's much more interested in you know getting Donald Trump's back than the backs of South Carolinians that that stat on broadband is just eye opening. So it sounds like you know. There's there's probably some independence and Republicans you're running across in South Carolina to your point retired of the division so they might even be considering not voting for trump. But for those that you know it seems like though you know anything about trump you know. He's consistent. He is who he is right. That's exactly right and so how much of a price is Lindsay Graham paying for you mentioned. He's not the same guy but you know sometimes in politics it's Being wrongs never great but being weak as worse right yes. That's exactly right. It's about character right. So he he's abandoning. You know the thing. Most people know about Lindsey Graham. His lifelong you know genuine friendship with John. Mccain. So we're almost seems like he's abandoned that post humorously And kind of Donald Trump is calling his shot. So how much is he paying a price for that and are people aware of it? I mean is that getting enough attention in coverage in South Carolina's at more of like a national media thing they are aware of it and and and some of the polling that we have seen here that I'm beating him with independence. And that's huge. Because the old Lindsey Graham was was a super popular with the independence of the state because again he was seen as a middle of the road even though he was conservative he was seen as a middle of the road. Sort of The Maverick someone who would do what was in the best interest of the nation or the state when when the rubber meets the road and because of this turn. He's not so you know he used to have this coalition of Democrats who thought well lenses. Probably best we'RE GONNA get. He's a you know somebody that I respect. I don't agree with but I respect. And so he would. Folks would vote for him. He would get independence overwhelming and then he would get your mainstream Republicans that was Lindsey onepointoh Lindsey Graham two point. Oh has lost. Those Democrats is losing independence now To me and now all his gain on the right but I believe I really do believe that that that support is somewhat salt because some of those people still don't quite trust Lindsey Graham when you look at the polling Donald Trump out polls Lindsey. And there's a gap between trump and Lindsey Graham and the same poll meaning that those people will vote for Donald Trump. But they don't quite trust Lindsey Graham and that's that's his Achilles heel and that's the thing that we're going we're going to focus on like a laser Because character matters it matters and it is in a place like South Carolina that is so values base. It is really important. People want to know in the end of the day that they can trust you even if they don't agree with you they want to know that they can trust you and this guy has flip flopped on everything You know he'll say one day the one thing today in in turn around and do something different tomorrow. And that's not that's not something that people respect or value here in the state. Well speaking of your narrow self in political interest Hopefully this doesn't look like trump's GONNA lose. Obviously because Graham may decide to scramble back to his old maverick ways you know in the fall but it's no so I'm curious Listen with the Corona Virus Jamie. We obviously all hope for the best both in terms of its effect in terms of people's health here in the US and the economy. But if we're in a situation where the economy is wounded by this and I'm not just talking about the stock market whereas you know there's a lot of voters most voters you know Not In the market but you know it could affect growth in and business growth layoffs. How does that change your campaign at all in terms of the messaging and kind of where you think voters are? Yeah you know. I'm really really concerned by by this virus my wife is a food and drug law professor and she tracks all of these things you know medicine medicine development and and you know all these things come up but I'm very very concerned about the health and well being. We have such a high senior population in the in the state I know that this virus so far they say has a much more deadly impact on those folks over the age of seventy We are also a state that relies on trade because we have a huge porte which you know about a third of the jobs in the state or directly or indirectly tied to the port of Charleston and so Not BEING ABLE TO GET SHIPMENTS. In from other countries that are being ravaged by this virus or are not being able to ship supplies over to those other nations. It could have a huge economic impact on South Carolina You know it is something that we all need to be very aware of and it's just..

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

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

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

We saw the candidates are going after each other more intensely than ever before days. Before the caucuses there as Bernie Sanders was emerging as a progressive front runner with none of the more moderate candidates willing to drop out and Mike Bloomberg fragmenting devote even further good evening and welcome the Democratic presidential primary here in South Carolina.

You got a Senate to worry about and this is this is really important. Hearing my name mentioned a little bit tonight maybe but what we saw from sanders was a candidate totally claiming his mantle and digging in on some of his most controversial position on Medicare for all we need to do is to do what every other major country on earth does guarantee healthcare to all people on Israel. I am very proud of being Jewish. I actually lived in Israel for some months but when I happen to believe. Is that right now? Sadly tragically in Israel through BB Netanyahu. You have a reactionary cest. Who is now running that country? What are the most revealing? Exchanges was on Cuban the Chinese Communist Party for lifting more people out of extreme poverty than any other country. You also have a track record of expressing sympathy for socialist governments in Cuba and in Nicaragua. Can Americans trust that? A democratic socialist president will not give Authoritarians a free pass. I have opposed authoritarianism all over the world and I was really. Sanders asked why he had praised some accomplishments of the cast ruining their tighter chip there. Of course you have a dictatorship in Cuba. What I said is what Barack Obama said in terms of Cuba. Cuba made progress on education. Yes I think. Really really bad to Barack Obama's they made hoping rave progress on education healthcare. That was Barack Obama. I told you speak and rather than try to back away from it. Sanders is essentially saying yes. I said it I stand by it. I was right and I'm not pivoting. Occasionally it might be good idea to be honest about American foreign policy and that includes the fact that America has overthrown governments all over the world in Chile in Guatemala in Iran and where dictatorships whether it is the Chinese or the Cubans. Do something good. You acknowledged. But you don't have. This is a core tenant of Sanders worldview his belief that the United States has often been a disruptive even destructive force overseas and by standing by that view as he becomes a front runner for a major party's presidential nomination. He's reinforcing one of his essential political calling cards. His consistency his ability to say these are the views I've had for decades. I'm right now I've been right for forty years and many voters really admire about him vice president fighting but the latest one issue sanders can't claim that kind of consistency and didn't try. We talk about progressive. Let's talk about being progresses. Walking dishes fears Emmanuel Church. Nine people shot dead by a white. Supremacist Bernie voted five times against the Brady Bill and monitor waiting waiting waiting period of twelve hours. I'm not saying he's responsible for the nine desk but that man would not been able to get that weapon with the waiting period that Ben will I suggest until you are cleared for most of his career? Sanders opposed crucial forms of gun regulation including a landmark Brady Bill in one thousand nine hundred and he voted to shield gun manufacturers lawsuits. I want allow Senator Sanders respond. Because you've gone after the insurance industry you've taken on pharmaceutical companies and you've taken on big tech. Why did you vote repeatedly to give gun manufacturers a pass Joe has voted for terrible trade agreements? Don't no no no seems to? This is a problem on all these other issues. He's just digging in his heels under attack. Here he says yes. I made a mistake. I have cast thousands of votes including bad votes. That was a bad book. And this is the rare part of his record that undercuts his claim to total consistency and authenticity. Over the years. I have today a D. minus voting record from the NRA but sanders opponents didn't let him off the hook. It's a chance for even like Bloomberg a former Republican to question sanders claims to progressive purity and to total consistency over a long career. And to do it heading into this critical next state. The issue of gun control has hurt sanders badly in South Carolina in the past. It's an issue that matters a lot to African American voters there and in two thousand Sixteen Hillary Clinton used it to great effect in the State. This time even.

"south carolina" Discussed on FiveThirtyEight Politics
"Field advantage like literally thing and like that was a crowd that really seemed to be eager to to defend Biden and Bloomberg and also to Boo Warren. It seemed like at one point. The crowd was booing Warren while she was debating Bloomberg over his history with regards to sexist comments in the workplace. So let's talk about Bloomberg a little bit more but let's first talk about war Sanders for one second. Claire mentioned That Warren came out of the gate. Making an argument against Sanders was she or who was the most effective in in trying to take on the front runner in this race. Good question is for me. for anybody opinion or maybe maybe nobody stood out. I I don't know I kind of thought that ultimately the thing that will probably stick the most of the the Biden attacks on Sanders about I think it was biden about praising Cuba. Those came relatively late though. I thought isn't that doesn't that? Make it better for leaving viewers with an impression. Oh maybe if people stuck with it a similar gun control stuff. Yeah I disagree with that. Yeah we were arguing about this on the gun control. A happy to be proved wrong. This is just my initial thoughts is that that was such a thing in the two thousand sixteen primary and Sanders had the whole answer of like. Yeah I used to vote that way now. I vote this way the NRA was different thing back then that it feels as if perhaps that is the thing that will move past with the critiques of Sanders. That there will be bigger ones and that that is is in fact acquaint critique of him so I Kinda WanNa partly challenge your premise. Mike I think at this point every cared eight would benefit if Bernie Sanders lost five points in the polls Some might not love it. If Joe Biden Win South Carolina for various reasons Bloomberg might not love that but Bloomberg. I think would still rather take at this point. He won a narrow murky. Ugly Biden Win Repeat Still Rather Bernie falls five points. We can have a conversation about Super Tuesday being interesting. Maybe I'm actually a little bit overstating because Sanders Super Tuesday polls are are good but not grape. Anyone would benefit now from the front runner falling a bit. I'm more like the kind of collective effort I thought you know. Some one thing about Bernie is that so far he has been very effective. I mean he's a he's certainly. Well above average debater overall with a narrow range right ranges from average to pretty darn good. It's rarely amazing. And it's rarely below average. I think but he has a different task now. He's eventually kind of consolidate different. Voters that are not traditionally in his base right. He built up his base from fifteen percent in the summer to twenty two percent before Iowa. I consider that part pretty solid right but to get up to twenty seven percent where he is now or twenty eight percent or to get up to thirty or thirty five or forty and by the way twenty eight nationally might translate to twenty one percent in the south. And there's a lot of south to come here right. That requires them to reach out to new voters. Who May or may not be averse to his message but like he hasn't sold them yet right and so therefore like again. I say on the show sometimes like I in our last in first outright if someone were converted toward you then there's a reason why they can't flip back around to another candidate and I'm not sure you know I'm not sure how well he did with that part of his task I Thought he showed genuine anger at times. I think that's always always a risk. I mean he's kind of Mr righteous indignation lapsed into genuine anger at times move. Seem like in the pulling. We've done that like genuine. Anger is risky to take risky. Yeah maybe you serious. I'm serious. None of them. None of this is genuine. So and think about something as I'm thinking about. These episodes IPSOS poll Kansas. The worse grades one of them was will young Castro in a moment where he is very angry at Biden Biden. And perhaps it was mean but like by the way was kind of like if I may be me and yelling. And here's a Shard didn't get great. Remorse and angry are different things. I could dispute the premise. Gaylon can can you weigh in on this so either individual individually or as a collective do you think? The candidates made any headway in trying to slow or take down sanders or conversely. To nate point did you think sanders. How did you think Sanders did in trying to expand his coalition consolidate support? I think that two of the instances where the candidates did a pretty good job of leveling attacks against sanders have been mentioned in passing but more specifically when they brought up the mother. Emmanuel shooting the white nationalist terrorist attack and Biden immediately pivoted to sanders and said that would have never happened had sanders supported the Brady. Bill was like very personal to South Carolinians especially considering that sixty percent of the democratic electorate in South Carolina is black and that church is steps away from where the debate was that was a pretty intense attack that I feel like probably resonated with voters and it was early in the debate. Then the other one was where a couple of the of his opponents piled on sanders about Cuba and praising dictators and Authoritarians in general and then he started trying to kind of fight back while other people were speaking I think again it was either Buddha judge or Biden and in order to try to be heard over them just a split screen between somebody leveling attacks against sanders for supporting dictators and Sanders. Just really shouting at the top of his lungs when it comes to. And so like neither of those instances I don't think sanders came off looking very good and it was a pretty effective attack. When it comes to more broadly speaking how Sanders is going to move forward in this race and how the establishment and maybe more moderate candidates are going to attack him or even just parts of the party. I think this is where it all comes. Outright it's now or never and just diploma this a little bit. I'm down in South Carolina. Today I spoke with James Clever and we'll have the interview in the feed tomorrow but he talked a lot about what he sees wrong with Sanders. And I think you're going to hear a lot more of that kind of thing going forward so you don't think he's GonNa Endorse Sanders. Gaylon are breaking embargo. I do not think he's GonNa Indoor Sanders. So let's continue this conversation in just a minute..

If I have to go to the polls to vote for you something that we're hearing from a couple of experts in different early states and I'm wondering if it's the same in South Carolina is that one difference? This election cycle versus past election cycles is there's been kind of a gun nationalization of. Of the primary and so voters are looking they're looking at national polls there. Is More than they had in past cycle do you think that's also true in South Carolina? Do you think the local traditions and in an endorsement still really reigns supreme I do I really do So for instance, a lot of people who endorsed Kamla and Start Carolina are now moving to. Joe. Biding there's this group of Women in Columbia Law Richland area called the wrecking crew they were very. Instrumental with support and calmly they were very instrumental supporting Hillary Clinton in. Now since Kamla course got out the race, they have thrown their support behind Joe Biden. So I think endorsements really work in like southern states or maybe like a rural areas because a lot of times people follow the lead of their community leaders or their elected officials is so I think that's why endorsements are still important and they mean a lot right everybody will be vying for Congressman Clermont's endorsement. But of course you he has to have a reason to endorse you, and if he does endorse, you is going to be at the last minute. So his endorsement means a lot. So just having certain people endorsed, you'd be from certain elated officials, certain community leaders and even certain faith leaders is a big deal in South Carolina, there is a narrative that Obama had proved in two thousand eight that Obama had proved he was appealing to white voters by winning Iowa, and then that gave the green light for voters in South Carolina to vote for him the do you think the order of the early states? Influences the others no I think every other state is like a football scrimmage and when you get to South Carolina you're really playing hardball. So no I think everything else is just We're just sitting here drinking tea eating cookies, but once you finally get to South Carolina is when everything really put the rubber to the road what are some of the big swings are shifts that you've seen in the primary so far? So when calmly I.

"Because people want so hard to vote for somebody that they think can win even though Corey connected with folks in Kamla connect with folks I. Think they didn't get enough support because people just didn't feel like they could win and they said, you know, let me go with the safe choice or what impact do you think it's had on people that we did start out with the most diverse field of candidates in history and of the field has been whittled down to I. Don't want to say the least diverse because we're just basically at where we were before but a pretty diverse field. I think. Voters like me it disheartens you. I mean, you see candidates that are very qualified. Candidates of color women, color women, candidates in your like they're very qualified. If you look at their resume alone. You know that there they would be great. So the fact that they didn't get the traction I think it probably disheartened some people but also still think that again because feel so large that people felt like there had to be some kind of way to whittle it down. People feel like okay. Now, we're getting to a manageable number. I. Think that seeing that manageable number not include. More. People of Color get people to feel like we're probably not at a at a post racial society that some of US may have thought we had when you had a president. But I'm I'm forever the optimist and so I'm so happy. I feel like regardless of where the nominee is, the question is really going to be about what that nominees leadership and cabinet looks like An. Still, feel like there's lots of opportunity to have a lot more diversity in an administration. No matter who the candidate is more diverse than we have in this current administration. So although it's a little disheartening that the person didn't make. President I'm not I'm still hopeful that we will have some of these folks where we haven't seen the last senator booker heiress. So I think we'll see those folks in positions that still are meaningful ineffective. I think the from. An outside perspective part of what's so interesting about this year that's different than past presidential cycles is that like every voter as pundit like.

He's a second generation realtor. He was born in ohio but he went to charleston with his family family and <hes> he has been featured on. H._d._t._v.'s island lies three different times so he really knows the charleston area and so i'm really happy to have him into. Welcome him onto the show. We're going to talk about all the ins and outs of retiring charleston south carolina so welcome bill thank you. Thanks for having me debbie no problem. Let's get right to it yeah. What do people like best about living in charleston. I mean i've visited there here so i can have a long list but you you talk to people every day. What are their favorite things about. Charleston charleston has a little bit of something something for. Everybody like to say we were. We've been voted the number one city in the united states by the readers of travel and leisure for seven years in a row so <hes> so we are huge vacation destination. I'm an that's what i find. A lot of people really love. Is i live where where people vacation you lucky so we could just pack up <hes> this past saturday. We decided let's go to the beach in the morning so we just packed act up twenty minutes later. We were at the beach with the kids. That's fabulous and you know and you know with with tourism comes your world class restaurants and you know you're museums in your sites in all of that good stuff so it kinda all bundles into one well. That's great will so what about the weather. I know there's probably a lot of humidity. 'cause you're so close to the water but many days of sun and what's the average temperature because people looking to charleston are looking for warmer tame pitchers in especially in the winter yeah so <hes> we are a sub tropical climate so we do get hot and humid <hes> by hot and humid. I mean today for example. It's august. They're saying we're gonna have a heat index of probably about one hundred five five two hundred and ten <hes> but our average temperatures you know during peak summer months we are upper eighties to mid nineties and but that is rounded out we do have very mild winters that rarely see snow out with peak winter temperatures. Were gonna see highs. You know forties fifties. It'll drop below freezing for a few days. <hes> two years ago we saw snow well. I accumulation in eight years so i'm sure everyone freaked out when they saw what five snowflakes or oh it was great it. It was like having a snow day as an adult. Everything was closed because they don't have snow plows to get you out. There is probably an eighth of an inch and everyone freaked out. We actually got about six inches. Oh my god in places and about four days later it was gone and people were golfing but they all stayed inside and had had a good time so that's it is but yeah it is right there on the water so it's kinda nice but we do get that breeze that comes in and kind of keeps it a little cooler but in the winter you know instead of the snow. We do get that breeze. We'll so we do get that that kind of biting biting wind but we don't get the the six months of snow plows and all of that so gladly trade. Yes some wind for six months. Yeah don't rub it in okay so a message taxes down there. If somebody's moving from high tax ax state down to south carolina they hire lower what are they property taxes sales tax and that sort of thing <hes> south carolina's very tax friendly for retirees for us <hes> our property taxes are essentially about half a percent of your value. Give or take <hes>. We're in the top six six. I believe last time i saw of the most budget friendly property taxes the states <hes> sales tax <hes> little bit higher here in charleston county. It's about nine percent <hes> than if you're eating out there's another two percent added to that and then another five percent liger drinks which but it evens out with the with the property taxes and then i think people live in their house more than they go out to eat right so it probably they can choose when they're going to how much drinking ranking it does encourage teetotalling. I suppose yes yes craig. Yeah it adds up. If you go out a lot but i personally i come from the restaurant industry three and it <hes> it doesn't really hurt restaurants or anything with other taxes. You know social security income isn't taxed here. That's good just very nice and there's also a fifteen thousand dollar deductions for seniors receiving any other type of income. I will not talk about that for a minute. What does that involve <hes>. That would be something to contact your tax professional about. You know i've been a real estate agent. I know the the basics of the taxes. I'm not fluent in all the tax laws i but i do know having many clients that have retired here that you know it is very tax friendly for them. Let sounds good. So is the cost of living higher or lower than other parts of the country. How does that compare <hes> we are slightly above average for the united states as a whole so so it would depend on where you're coming from myself. I came from youngstown ohio where you can imagine the cost of living is extremely low compared to here her but we see a lot of people moving from bigger cities <hes> new york chicago boston d._c. Compared to their we are lower. <hes> you know the last on the scale where one hundred was average ridge. We were like a one zero five. We're just just above average. It all works itself out and that's the main thing well. When people who are retiring wanna mu oh they also look into like hospitals and medical facilities doctors and things like that so how what is that scene like down there in charleston <hes> <hes> so our main hospital downtown is called 'em u._s._c. which stands for the medical university of south carolina as a teaching hospital will and it is the number one hospital in south carolina <hes> that's according to u. S. news and world report <hes> you know in addition to that there are there's the v._a. Hospital and then the two other major area are three actually three other major hospitals east cooper medical center rubber saint francis in so we do have a large medical presence here in charleston and that's not just downtown on they do have branches that go out all the way up to somerville which is about forty five minutes away a little suburb of charleston and there's plenty of medical facilities here sure great well now. What about the walkability. I remember one time when i visited charleston <unk> rickshaws to take you places but i'm sure not. Everybody wants go to someplace in a rickshaw but i'm sure they probably dot h in. I thought it was fun because we let someone drive you around. It was fun <hes> so is it a walkable city or do you have to drive everywhere and their public transportation. There is public transportation on not the greatest right now. They're working on that. <hes> as as we're growing we've been growing fairly fast over the past few years <hes> as for walkability that would depend on where you are. <hes> people say charleston you think of just the peninsula which could be walkable but i would suggest having a car <hes> most things aren't just like walk down the store. Get loaf of bread and come back but as a whole you know the whole area does cover three counties when i when i say charleston i kinda talk about that. Whole area <hes> and you know each has its little pockets. Some neighborhoods are little more walkable than others. <hes> you know if you're active a bike lake. <hes> i take my bike down all the time and ride around and you see a lot of people doing that great so i i would say bike. Ability downtown is probably a little better than walkability depending on where you would live. If you're downtown everywhere else would be a definite definite a drive to most places. I remember when i was there. The restaurants were just awesome and i know from reading other reports that more and more restaurants are opening like you said it's a it's a place for restaurants and and shopping to and i know there's probably a lot of museums the nightlife scene you talk about that so that people understand a little bit more about what they're gonna do when they moved there so my previous life i was a a bartender so this is one of my specialties so yeah like i said because of the tourism we've got these world class restaurants with james beard winning chefs. <hes> trip advisor puts out there travelers choice awards every year. We had three restaurants in the top ten and wow and it's not just goes restaurants that are you know. Let's get all dressed up in fancy. You're in the south. If there's one thing people love to do in the south it's just grab some fried oysters in a cold beer and and that's dinner wow you know they might not be winning awards but they've won awards now my god yet try twisters. I'd be there in a heartbeat yet so fried oysters thor's southern barbecue just that good old southern cooking lots cornbread and collard greens but like i said conversely. We've got these three top ten restaurants in the country so you could do that or you could go to say halls chop house which is a nationally known steakhouse and have one of the best you've ever had great. So what is this thing about as i've heard it's called second sunday on king st tell me about that because it sounds interesting yeah so king. Street is the main main street downtown. Where most of the shopping thing is when people picture shopping in charleston king street is what they picture every second sunday of the month as it is named and they closed down about half mile street and no vehicle traffic is allowed and about five hours people just wander the streets rates in the restaurants will pool tables out onto the sidewalk. They'll be street performers playing music sidewalk sales and you know people we'll set up booths to sell stuff and it's just a just a fun time to kind of experienced like what old world charleston probably w was like before there was all the traffic and sounds wonderful. I i also fights for that absolutely so tell me some reasons that somebody would want to a retired at charleston a lot of my clients <hes> when i counsel them. They're trying to decide where north carolina south carolina florida wherever they wanna go. What what why would they want to pick. <hes> retirement in charleston talk about that. You know what you said at the beginning that you're a history buff you know american history as we know it kind of started here with the civil war so everywhere you turn there's remnants of the civil war whether you know you're taking the boat out to fort sumter where the first shots were fired or just the other day i was walking around downtown down and there was an old cemetery and lo and behold there was someone who signed the declaration of independence was buried there. Wow so you know if you're a history three buff. There's a ton of history.

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