Bernie Sanders Takes The Lead In The 2016 Democratic Primary Race


OH, MY GOD, IT IS REAL. BERNIE ISN’T COMING, HE
IS ALREADY HERE. HE IS IN THE LEAD IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE AND HE ALMOST CAUGHT HILLARY CLINTON IN IOWA.
WRONG, HE DID CATCH HER. HE CAUGHT HER IMMEDIATELY. THE VERY NEXT DAY THERE
IS A NEW POLL OUT. WAIT A MINUTE, I DON’T SEE
HILLARY CLINTON UP TOP. WHO DO I SEE? BERNIE SANDERS.
FEEL THE BERN. 49 TO 44. HE IS ALREADY BEATING
CLINTON IN IOWA. ALL THE PLAYERS ARE TRENDING
TOWARDS BERNIE SANDERS. NOW, WE’RE NOT REALLY FAR OUT,
WE’RE THREE WEEKS FROM IOWA. THE TROOPS HAVE AMASSED. THE ESTABLISHMENT HAS NO IDEA
WHAT IS ABOUT TO HIT THEM. I HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU THIS
FROM DAY ONE, PEOPLE ARE PISSED. THEY HATE THE ESTABLISHMENT.
THEY HATE POLITICS AS USUAL. BUT THE ESTABLISHMENT DOESN’T
GET IT BECAUSE THEY DON’T WANT TO GET IT.
THEY ARE THE ESTABLISHMENT. I HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU HE DOES
HAVE A CHANCE, AND THAT THE ESTABLISHMENT IS WRONG. I DIDN’T DO THIS BECAUSE I’M IN
FAVOR OF THEM, WHICH I AM, I TOLD YOU THAT BECAUSE IT
IS REAL. THINGS LIKE DAVE GRABBING ERIC
CANTOR IN A REPUBLICAN RACE. DAVE BRETT RAN A POPULIST
CAMPAIGN ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE. THESE ARE REAL MOVEMENTS. DAVE BRETT RAN A CAMPAIGN
AGAINST THE BANKS. HE DID IT FROM THE RIGHT, BUT
WAIT UNTIL YOU GET A LOAD OF IT FROM THE LEFT. ON THE ONE HAND YOU HAVE HILLARY
CLINTON SAYING, WE HAVE TO BALANCE. THEN BERNIE SANDERS COMES OUT
AND SAYS HERE’S WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO, WE ARE GOING
TO BREAK IT UP. HE SAYS HE IS GOING TO BREAK UP
THE SIX BIGGEST BANKS IN THE COUNTRY. HE IS GOING TO CAP
CREDIT CARDS
AT 15 PERCENT. IT TURNS OUT IF YOU ACTUALLY
DESIGN A CAMPAIGN FOR REAL AMERICANS INSTEAD OF FOR
THE DONOR CLASS AND BILLIONAIRES, REAL
AMERICANS LIKE IT. THE REVOLUTION IS AFOOT. LET ME SHOW YOU THE TIDE
THAT IS ROLLING IN. SHE WAS UP BY 11 PERCENT LAST MONTH, NOW SHE IS
DOWN BY FIVE PERCENT. THAT IS A 16
POINT SWIG IN JUST ONE MONTH. BERNIE IS NOT COMING, HE
IS ALREADY HERE. KNOCK, KNOCK, WHO IS THERE?
OH, THE BERN IS HERE. NOW WITH THREE WEEKS LEFT- THESE
ARE ALL DIFFERENT POLLS. ALL THREE DIFFERENT POLLING
ORGANIZATIONS, YESTERDAY AND TODAY ARE ALL SAYING
THE SAME THING. HE IS NOT COMING, HE
IS ALREADY HERE. NATIONALLY HE WAS SO FAR BEHIND. HILLARY CLINTON HAS GIGANTIC
NAME RECOGNITION, HE HAD VERY LITTLE. PLUS TELEVISION DIDN’T
EVEN COVER HIM. HE’S ONLY FOUR POINTS
BEHIND HER NATIONALLY. THEY HAVE NO IDEA WHAT IS ABOUT
TO HAPPEN. MORE FROM THIS POLL. LET’S GET INTO THE DETAILS. YOU KNOW THERE IS A WORD FOR
SOMEONE THAT IS LEADING IN ALL THESE DIFFERENT AREAS, IT
IS CALLED FRONT RUNNER. ALL THE MODERATE DEMOCRATS ARE
GOING TO SUPPORT HILLARY CLINTON. REALLY?
LET’S LOOK AT THE NUMBERS AGAIN. WHEN TV WAS POUNDING THAT
MESSAGE, AND SAYING THAT THE MODERATES ARE GOING TO
SUPPORT HILLARY CLINTON, SHE WAS AT 50 PERCENT. THEY STARTED PAYING ATTENTION
AND LOOKING AT THE ACTUAL POLICIES, MODERATES NOW ARE
RUNNING IN A SPRINT TOWARDS BERNIE SANDERS. WHAT IS THE REACTION IN THE
CLINTON CAMPAIGN? I NOW GO TO CNN. I WISH I COULD
BE A FLY ON THAT WALL. HERE IS WHAT IS HAPPENING,
ANXIETY. I FEEL THE BERN. IT’S REAL. IT’S REAL. I HAVE TO EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO
YOU, BERNIE SANDERS MIGHT BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. WHEN YOU PUT THEM UP AGAINST THE
REPUBLICANS HE IS MURDERING THEM.
I AM GOING TO GET TO THAT NEXT. LET’S TAKE A
LOOK AT THE NUMBERS
AND SEE IF THAT IS TRUE. WHEN YOU LOOK AT NEW HAMPSHIRE
VOTERS, IT IS TRUE, HILLARY CLINTON IS BEATING DONALD
TRUMP BY ONE POINT. THAT IS A PRETTY NARROW LEAD.
IT’S 45 TO 44. NEW HAMPSHIRE IS A SWING STATE,
FORGET THAT IT IS AN EARLY PRIMARY.
IT’S IMPORTANT IN THAT SENSE. BERNIE SANDERS IS PROBABLY
LOSING TO DONALD TRUMP, RIGHT? WRONG. BERNIE SANDERS AND THAT SWING
STATE ISN’T MURDERING DONALD TRUMP.
HE IS BEATING HIM BY 19 POINTS. DO YOU WANT TO KNOW WHO
IS MORE ELECTABLE?, YOU NEED SWING STATES DON’T YOU? YOU NEED PURPLE STATES
DON’T YOU? NEW HAMPSHIRE IS A PURPLE STATE. FIRST, HILLARY CLINTON VERSUS
TED CRUZ IN THE SWING STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. SHE IS LOSING BY FOUR POINTS
TO THAT MANIAC, TED CRUZ. WHO IS MORE ELECTABLE? I’M HAVING TROUBLE UNDERSTANDING
WHO IS MORE ELECTABLE. IT LOOKS LIKE SHE IS LOSING TO
TED CRUZ BY FOUR POINTS. TO BE FAIR, BERNIE SANDERS IS
PROBABLY LOSING TO HIM, RIGHT? WRONG.
HE IS BEATING HIM BY 19 POINTS. HE IS BEATING TRUMP BY 19
POINTS, AND ALSO TED CRUZ. LET’S PAUSE HERE. HE HAS A 23 POINT ADVANTAGE IN
ELECTABILITY AGAINST CRUZ. 18 POINTS AGAINST TRUMP. THOSE ARE NOT SMALL NUMBERS,
THOSE ARE GIGANTIC NUMBERS. I CAN HEAR THE PUNDITS
NOW ON MORNING JOE. THIS MEANS HILLARY CLINTON
IS
UNELECTABLE. LET’S SEE IOWA, MAYBE
THEY ARE RIGHT. IOWA IS NOWHERE NEAR VERMONT. AND IOWA IS CONSIDERED A MORE
CONSERVATIVE STATE, ALSO SWING, ALSO PURPLE, ALSO
INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT IN THE GENERAL ELECTION. HILLARY CLINTON IS BEATING
DONALD TRUMP BY EIGHT POINTS. BERNIE IS PROBABLY NOT
DOING AS WELL. WRONG. BERNIE IS BEATING HIM BY
13 POINTS. REMIND ME WHO WAS MORE
ELECTABLE. EVERY TIME YOU ARE A PUNDIT AND
SAY THAT HILLARY CLINTON IS MORE ELECTABLE, UNDERSTAND THAT
THEY ARE EITHER GROSSLY IGNORANT OR THEY ARE LYING TO
YOU. FOR WHAT PURPOSE? YOU FIGURE THAT OUT. THEY EITHER KNOW AND THEY ARE
LYING, OR THEY ARE IDIOTS AND DON’T KNOW ANYTHING
ABOUT POLITICS. IF YOU ACTUALLY LOOK AT THE
NUMBERS, IT’S A LANDSLIDE THAT BERNIE SANDERS IS
MORE ELECTABLE. HILLARY CLINTON WANTS TO RUN
CAMPAIGN ADS SAYING VOTE FOR THE PERSON THAT IS MORE
ELECTABLE, YOU BETTER BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR. WHAT I’M HERE TO REPORT TO YOU
IS NUMBERS AND FACTS. WHAT THE FACTS TELL YOU IS
THAT BERNIE SANDERS HAS AN EXCELLENT CHANCE. IF HE WAS IOWA AND NEW
HAMPSHIRE, AND HE IS ALREADY ONLY FOUR POINTS BEHIND
HER IN INTERNATIONAL POLLING, DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA THE
MOMENTUM THAT HE WILL GRAB OR THE HEADLINES? THE INTERNET IS ALREADY
ALL OVER BERNIE SANDERS. WE ALREADY HAVE THE INFORMATION. WHO IS A MORE PROGRESSIVE
CANDIDATE? IS THAT REALLY A CONTEST? WE’RE IN A DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY,
SO WHEN TV IS FORCED TO COVER BERNIE SANDERS, AND IF HE
WINS, I’VE GOT NEWS
FOR YOU, IT IS REAL. THE NEXT COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF
COULD VERY WELL BE BERNIE SANDERS. BEFORE I WAS TELLING YOU ABOUT
THE EMPTY ESTABLISHMENT FERVOR AND HOW IT WAS A POSSIBILITY, IT
IS NOW MOVING TO PROBABILITY. WHOEVER BERNIE SANDERS IS
AGAINST IN THE REPUBLICAN RACE, THESE NUMBERS WILL ALSO
MOVE AND YES, IT IS A LONG WAY AWAY FROM THE GENERAL
ELECTION, BUT GIVEN HOW WELL HE IS DOING WITH INDEPENDENTS AND
EVERYBODY SAYS THE SAME THING, AGAIN AN EXACT OPPOSITE OF WHAT
THE TV PUNDITS ARE TELLING US. OF COURSE HE’S
POPULAR WITH
INDEPENDENTS. TODAY IS THE DAY WHEN
IT GOT REAL. BERNIE SANDERS OF ALL PEOPLE,
THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
IT IS ENORMOUSLY POSSIBLE. IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING THE BERN,
IT’S BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION BECAUSE THE
BERN IS ALL AROUND US.

Political Spectrum Explained


In our Modern political world, we often hear
terms like left-wing politics and right-wing politics. We often get confused and misunderstood these
terms. So, what do these terms mean and where do
they come from So hi guys this is Pratik and you are watching
eclectic – The political terms left wing and right wing
were first used in the ideological context during the French revolution of the 18th century. In the French Revolution, Left supported the
revolution, they supported overthrowing the king while the right wing supported the monarchy
means they supported the king. This idea of the left supporting change and
the right wanted to keep the status quo continues today and is key in some of their philosophy. Our modern political world is divided into
these two ideologies. On the Left, there are communist, socialist
and liberals. They all hate capitalism and the free market
economy. On the right, there are conservatives and
capitalists. They favor capitalism and free market economy. The political spectrum from left to right
looks like these Communist, socialist, Green Politics (Environmentalism),
Christian democratic, conservative and right-wing extremist. The left promotes equal society. They believe that government should play a
substantial role in people lives. Left wing governments increase regulations
and taxes on businesses. Left literally promotes a socialistic idea
of taking money from rich by imposing heavy taxes on them and giving that money to poor
people through welfare programs and many government subsidies for poor. The left also calls itself progressive because
they oppose the death penalty and support same-sex marriage and women’s right to abortion. The left also promotes the idea of open borders
and favors immigration. Now let’s talk the economics of the left
Economically left believes in the Keynesian approach. It means increasing taxes when the economy
and business is booming or making the profit and spending that money when the economy is
weak. They oppose the free market economy. The left wants the complete control of the
economy whereas some leftists want moderate control over the economy. But this approach mostly fails because increasing
taxes and more regulations on the businesses are not good for the economy. It kills the productivity of businesses. If you increase the taxes on people, they
will spend less on shopping and services and businesses won’t generate more revenue. That is the reason under leftist government
economy stagnates. In short, the economy does not witness much
growth under the leftist government. Right wing believes social inequality is inevitable. They believe that there will always be some
rich people and some poor people in society. The right believes giving free stuff and free
money under government subsidies does not help the poor. It makes poor people lazy and they remain
poor. The right believes in providing opportunities
to the poor rather than providing them with free stuff. Right wing government believes that the government
should have limited control over the lives of people and businesses. They promote personal freedom and the free
market economy. Their goal is to impose less rules on people. Right wing follows religious and traditional
values and they oppose open borders and immigration. Now what is the economics of the right wing
Economically right wing follows the classical approach. Right wing decreases regulations on businesses,
which results in more innovation. The right-wing promotes free market where
the government does not interfere much. They decrease the taxes, therefore, people
save more money and as a result, people spend more money on shopping and services, which
helps businesses in generating more revenue. That is why the economy thrives and sees growth
under the right-wing government. When America was under the leftist Democratic
Party and Barack Obama was the president. American economy did not witness much growth
but after Donald Trump came to the power American economy saw good growth. In our modern politics – Parties on the
left include labor, the greens, Democratic Party and all socialist and communist parties. While those on the right include the Republicans,
conservatives, the UK Independence party and the BJP of India. There is also one center ground where parties
like liberal democrats lie. These parties at the center hold the views
from both the right and the left.

Why Trump Will SMASH Hillary


Donald Trump is going to beat Hillary Clinton
and be the next President. Now, let me be clear. This isn’t a pro-Trump video. I’m not
voting for Trump, but after watching hours of footage of both Trump and Hillary, I’ve
seen an incredible pattern that convinced me to bet $1,000 of my own money that Trump
would be the next President, even though I’m not voting for him. That’s how confident I
am. So let’s rewind one year to see how Trump
got to where he is and how that can show us where he’s going, because as soon as Trump
announced, a lot of people thought it was a joke. You see there, Jon Stewart thanking Donald
Trump for running. He assumed that it would give him tons of material to satirize and
he assumed that the rest of America will just laugh at Trump. Clearly it was going very
differently. The only person I’m aware of, who predicted
this very early on was Scott Adams. He saw Trump’s skill about 10 months ago and predicted
a landslide victory in the general election. If you want to read more, check out Scott
Adam’s blog in the description. His analysis has really formed parts of this video. So Trump enters a field of 17 Republican candidates.
With huge amounts of money to spend on ads at their disposal, what does Trump do? He
makes outlandish polarizing statements. Ignoring the Geneva Convention and alienating
Mexicans, these are the kind of statements that make you unelectable. If you would have called
Mexicans rapists, the day before the election, he would lose, but Trump isn’t trying to get
elected, at least not at this point. He’s trying to draw attention to himself in a very
crowded Republican field and the news outlets eat it up. They covered every single thing he says. All
in all, he gets $2 billion worth of free media coverage. And he uses that time to reinforce
the idea that he’s winning, which he starts to do as soon as he insists that he is. Trump’s statements earned him $2 billion worth
of that message over 24-hour news networks. So the casual viewer is bombarded with messages
that Trump is not only the most important candidate, but that he’s winning. And all of a
sudden, he doesn’t seemed like such a joke. At the same time, Trump starts picking apart
his opponents by branding them exactly how they don’t want to be seen. Scott Adams calls
these brandings “linguistic killshots” and Trump goes down the line of his biggest threats,
first Jeb Bush, who is the probable nominee, simply because he’s a Bush. And finally, he took down Ted Cruz with one
of his best brandings yet. Cruz can’t even communicate with him because
every single time he starts, he just shouts “Lying Ted” and that is exactly what you want
out of a brand. You want it to be with people that associate you, or in this case, your
competition with. The smartest thing is that Donald doesn’t
just sit alone in a room and craft these perfect zingers. He comes up with a bunch of ideas
and test their reception live. Now, this brings us to Trump as the nominee versus Hillary
Clinton. Still, people are saying it’s going to be an uphill battle for Trump because he’s
alienated Latinos, women, minorities. But then, just a few weeks ago, Trump turned on
a dime and started saying things completely unlike what we’d heard from him before. That sounds very different from the Trump
who wanted to bomb them all to hell or go after the families and allow guns in the school
zones, and it’s by design. It’s part of Trump’s strategy, which can be summed up like this:
First, get attention. You need to stand out when you’re in a crowded field, so you have
to bring attention to yourself. Second, win one audience at a time, and start with the
most immediate. In Trump’s case, that was Republicans who are voting in the Republican
primaries. He spoke to things that were important to them. Third, remove threats one at a time,
and start with the largest, so you saw how he went down the list–first Bush, then Rubio, then
Cruz. Fourth, define the terms of the engagement, so that you’re already the winner. He successfully made this campaign about things
that are really wasn’t and he made it about being anti-establishment strict on immigration.
No one else had even seen those as important issues. He brought them to the forefront and
he was already the strongest on them. Fifth, be flexible based on what rallies an
audience. So when you look at this strategy, it makes sense that Donald would look like
a long shot to beat the Democratic candidate during the Republican primaries. He wasn’t
trying to appeal to the whole country, only the people who are voting and, by the way,
there’s not a ton of Mexicans or Muslims who are voting in the Republican primaries. And
he even admits that he wasn’t trying to beat Hillary and that you can expect things to
change once he goes head to head with her. Check it out. Well I say those numbers are going way up
once I start going. I have two more people I have to get rid of. I started off with 17
and one-by-one I knocked them off, and frankly, I have to, you know, I have to do what I have
to do. Now, once I start on Hillary, you’ll see the numbers change. And true to form, he’s now turned his sights
on Hillary. She’s even got her own brand name that he’s testing out, and you can expect
Trump supporters to echo this for the rest of the race. Then, of course, we have crooked Hillary; crooked Hillary. That’s why we’re going to call her heartless
Hillary. We can do without that. I don’t know which of these Trump is going
to use. Maybe he’ll continue to use both crooked and heartless Hillary. But it is interesting
to note that alliterations were the first sound of something matches something or rhymes, which is
when the end sound matches, stick better in the mind. So, we almost called our business “Next Level Charisma” but chose
“Charisma on Command” because it had that alliteration with the C sound, and it stuck
better in the brain for it. By the way, if you go through and look at
famous brands, you’ll find that a lot of them follow this pattern and, perhaps, the best ever is
Coca Cola because its got the rhyme and the alliteration. So we’ll see if Heartless Hillary
sticks. If not, count on Donald to keep coming up with new ones until he finds a brand name
that does. Trump also got out in front of Hillary’s favorite rallying point and made
it a weakness. So watch how he mocks Hillary’s reliance on what he calls “the woman card”
and makes her stances into something that is anti-men. Did you hear that Donald Trump raised his
voice while speaking to a woman? Oh, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I mean, all of the men were petrified
to speak to women anymore. What’s incredible about that statement is
that it not only touches on Trump’s common thread of political correctness, but it gives
a target to those men who are scared to speak to women for their own reasons. It’s Hillary
Clinton’s fault that you’re afraid and she’s only gonna make it worse. Now, I know that that sounds crazy, that’s
not literally what Trump is saying, but that is absolutely how some men are going to process
that remark. So, in a nutshell, that’s Trump’s campaign strategy and you’re already seeing
it turned on Hillary. It worked incredibly well for him in the primaries, but, honestly, if
it were for just Trump’s strategy, I wouldn’t have bet $1,000 that he would win. I bet $1,000
because Hillary’s campaign is shooting itself in the foot. First off, the first thing that you see on
her website is a plea not to vote for Donald Trump, nothing about why we should vote for
her. Second, her website slogan has Trump’s name in it, and it doesn’t even make any sense.
It’s supposed to be some kind of double entendre, but the amount of time that you have to sit,
look at it, and think about it, is far too much for a slogan. And then you move on to her attacks. She attempted
the same kind of branding as Donald did, but completely missed the point. Don’t expect this one to stick her to see Hillary’s
supporters shouting out presumptuous Donald at rallies. It’s four syllables long. Most
people don’t even know what presumptuous means and it’s not really even an insult. Worse,
Clinton allows her opponents to define her. Thanks to Donald, the theme of this election has been how important it is to get an outsider in the White House. Now, that is not a fact. That is a campaign
strategy. You could just as easily argue that you need someone with qualifications and experience;
someone who is there when Osama bin Laden was killed, who is Secretary of State and
knows how to operate in the political arena. But that’s not what Hillary has done. She’s
bought into this outsider equals good frame, and is trying to defend it. Now is that at all believable? Hillary Clinton
lived inside the White House for most of the 90’s. She’s been a senator and a Secretary
of State. You cannot be much more of an insider than she is. So it’s silly for her to deny
it. What she ought to do is re-frame the question like you see Obama do here. Make it about
experience and know-how rather than being an outsider. Hillary’s insiderness could be a positive.
She could point out that she was in the room when Osama bin Laden was killed, point out
that while she was helping run the country, Donald Trump was on a reality TV show, but
she doesn’t. She sees that Donald Trump has crafted “outsider” into a good thing, and
she tries to fit that mold, which she can never do better than he did, given her history.
Worse, she is really going heavy with the fact that she’s a woman to justify that outsiderness. This is an extremely vulnerable position because
it can easily be viewed or twisted, depending on your point of view, as anti-half the population.
When Donald Trump alienates people, he purposely picks voting minorities. For instance, there
are not a lot of Mexicans who are voting in Republican party primaries. But if Hillary
continues to really, really hype what Donald Trump is calling the “woman card” through
the general election, you’re going to see some men vote Republican for the first time
in their lives. So in summary, Hillary’s strategy is: 1. Be
clever with slogan rather than impactful. 2. Allow the press and her opponents to define
the terms of engagement, and then, react by denying she is the things that they say she
is. 3. Don’t change your strategy as Donald cripples it. 4. Don’t attack Donald proactively,
just allow him to dismantle your weapons. And, I guess, that’s not a strategy. That’s
what we have seen her do. Mostly, she’s been reactive, and the overarching point of this
that the election is not going to be decided on policy. I’m not sure that any American
election in recent years has been, but this one, particularly, is going to be decided
on personality and identity. Who do you like more? Who do you feel more connected to? Every year, some comedian will go and ask
people who they support and then read them a list of the candidate’s policy, just to
prove that people do not care about policy and this is what happens. I don’t mean this to pick on that woman or
Hillary’s supporters. The truth is, you could do this just as easily with Republicans, Democrats,
Hillary supporters, Trump supporters. It doesn’t matter. The point is that there is a large
portion of the population that is voting not at all based on policy, but on image, and
that portion is very, very easy to find for interviews. So if this election is going to come down to
image–to the person who’s most charismatic, who has a better understanding of how to create
a brand image. There’s no doubt that Donald Trump has a serious advantage in this election.
That’s why I bet $1,000 on him. Could Hillary do a total about face? Absolutely. But up
until now, the impression that she has made on anyone who’s undecided has not been a good
one. If you, personally, are interested in the
blueprint to making an amazing first impression, we’ve set up another video that covers the
four emotions that will guarantee that every single time. If you hit those four emotions
in the right order, it doesn’t matter what kind of environment you are in–from work,
in the board room, to the bar, or a party. It’s all the same. So if you’re curious what
those four emotions are, go ahead, click the box here. It’s gonna take you to a page where
you can drop your email and get immediate access to that video, so that you can begin
to use those emotions today. If you like this video and want to be the
first to know whenever we post new ones, subscribe to the channel. That will pop-up on your
home screen every single week. You don’t have to worry abut tracking us down or missing
a new video. Just click the button here and you’re going to get lots more breakdowns like
this, also, fictional character breakdowns. I’ve done a lot of Game of Thrones recently,
but I”m going to break into some other things very soon, plus, the best tips that I have
for being your most charismatic and confident self in the moments that count the most in
your life. So, if you have any video suggestions, please
go ahead, write those in the Comments. I’m planning one or two question and answer style
talking head videos for this week, and then, next week, maybe another Game of Thrones breakdown,
likely on Ned Stark’s leadership qualities or lack thereof, but if you have another good
idea that’s really, really good, go ahead write it in the Comments, because those plans
are all subject to change. I hope that you’ve enjoyed this video and I’m looking forward
to seeing you in the next one.

Understanding the Primaries: Delegates, Democracy, and America’s Nonstop Political Party


Good morning, Hank. It’s Tuesday. and I have strep throat which I rate 0/10 not recommended. so your video about the political situation in Brazil made me think about the political situation here in the United States specifically the tortuously long, Kafka-esque process through which the two major political parties in the United States determine their nominees for President. delving deeply into the whole sorted affair would take like a month so today we’re just going to look at one state: Missouri last week the people of Missouri voted in their presidential primaries and on the Republican side, Donald Trump beat Ted Cruz statewide by about .19 percent And on the democratic side, Hilary Clinton beat Bernie Sanders by a similar margin But what actually matters for becoming your party’s nominee is not how many votes
you get but how many delegates are pledged to you because the nominees are
not actually chosen by voters. They are chosen by delegates at the party’s national
conventions in July. The Republicans are meeting in Cleveland the Democrats in
Philadelphia. On the Republican side there will be 2473 of these delegates voting at the
convention and on the Democratic side there will be 4765-ish. It depends a little bit on if anybody dies. Right, so despite
only winning the statewide primary by point two percent Hilary Clinton
emerged from Missouri with 47 delegates to Bernie Sanders’ 35. In fact, she would have won more delegates
than Sanders even if she lost by .2 percent because the Missouri Democratic
Party has named 13 so-called super delegates who can support whomever they
want at the convention and most of them have endorsed Clinton. Missouri’s
super-delegates include the state’s governor Jay Nixon, Senator Claire
McCaskill, and like other prominent members of the state’s Democratic Party. Then there are the 71 delegates who actually represent Missouri’s Democratic
primary voters. By state party rule, their votes are split proportionately according to
the results, so if Clinton had gotten a hundred percent of the vote, she would have
gotten all 71 delegates, but she just barely beat Sanders, so instead she got
36 delegates to his 35. This year in Missouri there were about 8,800 democratic votes for each of these
71 pledged delegates. Which means that at the party’s convention in Philadelphia Governor Jay
Nixon will have, you know, around 8800 times more power than the
average Democratic voter in Missouri, and not to belabor the obvious or anything,
that’s not a power distribution generally associated with the word
democracy. But wait, there’s more! Over on the Republican side Donald Trump beat Ted Cruz very narrowly statewide, but emerged with 37 delegates to Cruz’s 15.
And John Kasich, who got ten percent of the vote, won no delegates at all. But it
wasn’t all bad news for Kasich, because on the same day in Ohio, he got 47
percent of the Republican vote but all of the state’s 66 delegates.That’s because the
rules of the Republican state party in Ohio dictate that whoever gets the most
votes gets all the delegates, whereas the rules created by the State party in
Missouri dictate that if no one gets 50 percent, the winner gets twelve delegates, and then
five delegates go to the winner of each of Missouri’s eight congressional
districts. Trump won the state and five of the congressional districts ergo 37
delegates. Alright, this is going to get a little complicated: bit of context for
non-Americans: there are 435 congressional districts in the United States. Each of
these districts elects a congressperson every two years who goes to Washington and
fails to pass a budget. Presumably they also do other things but the main thing is to
make sure that we don’t accidentally pass a budget. Each state gets a certain
number of congressional districts based on their population, and after the 2010
census it was determined that a smaller percentage of Americans lived in
Missouri so they lost a congressional district. While fast growing states like Arizona
and Florida gain districts but this losing a district offered the state of
Missouri an opportunity to redraw its congressional boundaries. Back in 2010 there
were six congressional districts represented by Republicans and 3
represented by Democrats. If one of those had to go, the Republicans obviously
wanted it to be a majority Democratic district which is what happened because
1- they control the state legislature and 2 – one of the democratic congress people
helped them because in that process his district became even more democratic. You know, now he’s less likely to lose his job. Today congressional districts in
Missouri are drawn mostly in a way that makes the elections within them extremely
lopsided. Like in 2014 the first congressional district of Missouri voted
73 percent to 21 percent for the Democrat. The third district meanwhile
voted 68 percent to 27 percent for the Republican, et cetera. But per Republican state party rules, no matter which
district you win you get the same five delegates. Like in Missouri’s 1st congressional district
about 34,000 republican votes were cast in the 7th district it was closer to
150,000. So just by virtue of living in the first district instead of the seventh, your
Republican primary vote is five times more powerful. In short Hank, all of this is
extremely complicated and none of it is particularly democratic, at least not in
a straightforward way we usually imagine democracy. Political
parties are weird institutions in the United States, like, they’re simultaneously
public organizations and private clubs. They make their own rules, the rules are
constantly changing, but in many cases the rules are regulated by the states.
And political parties are powerful, but only insofar as their supporters allow
them to have power. Also they don’t really have card-carrying members, but almost
every national elected figure belongs to one of them. Now some of this is a legacy from
a time when the United States was openly suspicious of what we now call voting
rights. I mean, for most of American history, most adults couldn’t vote and
political parties served partly as a check against revolution or radical
change. In fact, the nominating process has become much more democratic over time. Like as
recently as 1968 only 34 percent of Republican delegates were chosen by
primaries, and only 38 percent of Democratic delegates. And for the last 10 election cycles,
in both parties, the person with the most overall primary and caucus support has
also been the eventual nominee. But that may not be the case this year, and it
remains to be seen who will actually wield the power when the party and the
people disagree. Hank, I’ll see you on Friday.

CNN Does Hatchet Job Against Bernie


>>Just days after announcing his candidacy,
Joe Biden apparently got a big bounce in the polls or did he? Because the headlines all seemed pretty clear
that he shot up, but when you look closer it’s not as clear as the headlines make it
seem. So on Tuesday, there was a CNN poll showing
Biden at 39, Sanders at 15 and Warren at 8. So look, that is not only a big lead for Biden
over Bernie Sanders. It’s also a gigantic jump for Biden, who had
generally been in the high 20’s, occasionally 30, 31, that’s a big jump. So I wanna skip ahead just a little bit to
show you the actual breakdown of the demographics in the CNN poll. So let’s go to that, don’t expect that you’re
gonna be able to make much sense of this, the text is very small and there’s a lot of
stuff there. What you will notice immediately is that as
you go down that’s whole bunch of different candidates, there’s a lot NA’s and the NA’s
are in the category of people between 18 and 34 and 35 to 49. Now, a lot of people notice that relatively
quickly. Now that does not mean that they did not have
any respondents in those age ranges, they did. It just means that there weren’t enough for
them to consider it to be a representative sample for opinions held by those people. There’s just not enough of them and overall
it means that the results, overall, they’re gonna be a good bit biased because what you
are really polling in actuality are not people, it’s the oldest aged groups in America. Is it a shock that they might prefer Joe Biden
over some of the other candidates? And again it doesn’t mean by itself that he
did not experience some sort of bump or that bump might not be sustainable, they might
not find it in other places. But the headlines never said Joe Biden gets
big bump from poll of septuagenarians. It says Joe Biden up big, pack this thing
in, it’s done.>>Yeah.>>He announced, it’s over.>>Yeah, so I complained last time around
2016, that the media was, I think it was a accidental, subconscious, etc. I don’t think that it was applaud. Some of you might disagree, but I really don’t
think so, that was favoring Hillary Clinton might do a number of things, including, and
the most prominent one is. They were kind of super delegates before the
super delegates ever voted the super delegates vote at the end. Not at the beginning, they were doing endorsements
but super delegate endorsements change all the time. In fact in the last big Democratic primary
the super delegates were on Hillary Clinton’s side in the beginning, and then they switched
over in the middle and then eventually voted for Obama. So counting the super delegates in the beginning
as if they had already voted, and as if it was actual voters voting instead of politicians
that’s the super delegates voting. It made a giant difference because it seemed
like this thing is already over. Why is Bernie, like, no votes yet, right? And people are like, why is Bernie Sanders
still in the race? This thing’s over, look at the, I saw the
CNN, it’s like 190 to one, what is this crazy guy doing in the race? He’s illegitimate, so that was a subtle message
that was sent. And I talked about that when I was on CNN,
and Brian Stelter on Reliable sources was good enough to have me on to make that point. Now, this time around, they’re doing things
like this. Big poll, that’s Biden announces, got a big
lead, here we go. Now look, again, I don’t think that it’s
>>Conscious.>>Conscious, they’re certainly not getting
together in a room and be like, all right, how do we fix the poll, so we don’t ask young
people. Okay, we just ask old people that pretend
Biden’s winning. I would be shocked if that were the case,
totally shocked. But when you see a poll that has all those
not applicable roles, right? And you see that as for older people and you
run a giant headline that says Biden takes commanding lead surges ten points>>That’s problematic and what does it do? It gives Biden, a perception of having a big
extra amount of the lead and then come in and start writing about how Bernie Sanders
is sliding and Biden commanding lead. I mean, I literally saw this movie before,
it was just a couple of years ago when we did these things and then when I say, again,
it’s like people love to be offended in Washington. They could do these things and they don’t
find that offensive, but if you point it out. You see, it reminds me of the right wing. If you for the right wing, doing racist stuff
is not a problem, but if you point out racism, they’re like, you’re doing identity politics. And when the mainstream media, we point out
bias, we’re not like the right, we don’t that your an enemy of the people. But we point out something that appears to
be an unconscious bias here, and they get so offended. They get so offended, yeah, yeah, you guys
love Sanders. I’m not the one who did the poll, you’re the
one who did the poll. And when I ask you, hey, shouldn’t the editors
be careful about this stuff? Then they’re like, what are you trying to
do, get me fired? It’s my job to tell you this is not a good
poll. I’m a journalist, checking you. You’re supposed to be checking the government. But yet, we have situations like this and
I wanna be clear, too. I agree with John, their other polls could
be totally legitimate and maybe Biden is surging. But you gotta give me a poll that doesn’t
do this to make your case.>>Absolutely, and there is such a thing in
media called framing. And framing does sometimes arise from unconscious
bias. But clearly, what I interpret this polling
and polling of only septuagenarians and above to mean is that, they want to introduce a
candidate that seems like they’re a winning candidate. If somebody has more than 20 plus points above
the next candidate who’s supposed to challenge them, the not supposed to look like a Democratic
party that has their stuff together and can mount a challenge to Trump. But also, we didn’t just see this in 2015,
2016 against Bernie in favor of Hillary Clinton and the airplay that she got or the polling,
as you explained the breakdown around the super delegate count. But we saw this with Trump and we saw the
coverage of Trump from June 2015, by all the cable networks to triple the amount that they
gave Obama when he was running for reelection 2012. And so, I think that they’re over coverage,
and Amy Goodman has talked about this. She started talking about this in 2016, April
2016. She thought that it was really dangerous and
damaging, and she was one of the first to point out how much coverage that Trump was
getting. Full rallies were being covered on cable news. So this is, I count as, a kind of version
of over representing a certain candidate.>>Yeah, yeah.>>And I think, let’s jump ahead to the two
examples just to give an idea of how these polls were laid to the people. So we have from I believe this is Politico. Biden extends lead by 11 points in the CNN
poll with post-announcement surge. And then Axios had 3 new polls show former
VP extends lead over 2020 field. And again, I don’t even necessarily blame
them, I wish that they, I guess it’s laziness of a form but they’re not gonna dig into the
cross tabs and everything, every poll unfortunately. I wish that they would, because it’s important. First of all, they’re worried about missing
something. So if Biden is surging, they wanna make sure
that they had a headline about it, but also they want to capitalize on any drama. Nobody wants to like the headline to be, polls
roughly similar. Like you can’t do that headline every three
days or anything. So if he shoots up, it’s gonna be drama. I mean, hopefully if it was like Warren at
40 points, they would also have a lot of headlines about that. But I think that they’re trying to capture
the drama and I just hope that they they can be a little bit more critical in the future
and we were talking about, I’m gonna bring this guy up, might anger you a little bit. But in terms of how you frame these sorts
of results, I mean, this is definitely played into the past couple of days of social media
activity of Nate Silver, the numbers guy. He loves to, dig into the polls and all that. He’s got his not to be taken too seriously
presidential tears, if we could bring that up. It’s the third last graphic. And you’ll see Biden is gonna be all by himself,
them there’s a little gap, I don’t know what that represents and then you see Harris going
down, Sanders going down. Warren going up a little bit, because in some
of the polls actually one polls she was above Sanders and what I’ve noticed, I don’t know
if you’ve been following his Twitter activity. The way that he interprets literally everything
in this primary in terms of how durable lead is, what electability means, all of it. Coincidentally, none of it favors Bernie Sanders. I just noticed from issue to issue to issue,
he doesn’t necessarily talk about Bernie Sanders. But it’s just always pitched as things are
working out for the other candidates. And Bernie’s got lots of name recognition,
probably gonna fall after this. That same thing doesn’t apply to Biden or
anything. It’s this weird inconsistency on how the things
are supposed to work.>>So here’s a good example of it. Klobuchar versus Tulsi Gabbard, okay? So, look, people assume that I’m on some side
or another side. When I want to side, I don’t hide it. Okay, I’ll tell you so but in the case of
Klobuchar tremendous hype all throughout the media Klobuchar, Klobuchar, Klobuchar, she
gets a town hall even though she’s poll again. Never, I’m not sure she’s ever gotten above
3%. But consistently 2%, 1%, etcetera. Klobuchar, that right now right now Klobuchar
and Gabbard are both at 2%. Where’s Tulsi Gabbard? I don’t see, other than this program and a
couple others, I don’t see Tulsi Gabbard.>>She’s on the list, he has her in 3B.>>That’s right.>>And Klobuchar’s 2B.>>And Yang has 1%. Yeah, yeah, why is in 2B at 2% and is in 3B
at 2%? Why?>>He does have it growing up though.>>Yeah, up to 3B, up to 3B. He was just pulling at the same numbers Klobuchar. The reason is as subconscious bias that Nate
doesn’t even realize he has because he watches cable news all day and cable news tells him
and Washington tells you Klobuchar has a real candidate. Backed up by no evidence has never pulled
well has never done anything in terms of small donations volunteers any other metric that
you can measure. But they have their implicit biases, and they
get so offended when you point it out. If the right wing points it out, and the right
wing says maniacal things, they respect them. They go okay sorry, sorry, I don’t wanna be
a liberal, I don’t wanna be a liberal. How can I help? I’ll just fluff up your number somehow. I’m not saying that about Nate, I’m saying
overall in the establishment. If the Progressives say hey, you’re being
bias. They’re like yeah, weirdos. I bet you like Bernie Sanders, he’s got no
chance, right? We had a story yesterday, about how the wall
street bankers are like, we’re scared to death of Elizabeth Warren. Even though Bernie Sanders is polling better,
way better, they’re like, he’s crazy no one I know thinks he can win. And yes, that does filter down to the media,
that does filter down. I don’t mean from the banks, I mean that group-think
in New York and Washington and there’s even filter down the guys like Nate Silver who
we want to do better. So look last thing about the polls for me. I think I love it, I do love analyzing it,
is that there are other poles like the poll we pointed out the CNN once has got a massive
issue as you can tell. But Biden is picking up steam. That makes sense. He just announced, and he actually did a good
political strategy with the pointing out Charlottesville, Trump attacked him. That’s gonna lift up his numbers. You can talk about that and do it in a fair
way. I thought Warren’s policy proposals would
do well. I’ve been telling you for about a week on
this show, if not more, that her numbers would start to go up, and they have. And that’s also shown in the same polls, and
she’s gone up about three points, and now she’s solidly in third place. So that’s real, and they do mention that as
well. And look, so I like Elizabeth Warren a lot,
I like Bernie Sanders a lot. I told you if I liked someone, I’d tell you,
there it is, right? And Bernie Sanders, for a while looked like
he would overtake Biden and I thought that made sense, politically, let alone more, like
you think about his policy. Now he’s not in as commanding a second place
I would have thought, and I point that out and it’s too different hats. One is who do you think is right on the policy? And the other is, what’s actually happening. What’s the reality on the ground? We thought Trump might win. We couldn’t stand Trump. But we gave you the actual numbers and talked
about likely voters versus not. So I have to confess it is frustrating. Where we say we’re the home of progressives. We clearly label who we are. We talk honestly about our point of view. And then we actually analyzed the numbers,
cuz it’s our job to give us facts. And they call us biased, then they turn around
and have an actual bias. Where they put the numbers in a skewed perspective,
to favor their own candidates. And then when you point it out, they get all
hurt and emotional over it. So, but that is the reality and we’re gonna
keep on delivering those fax you guys. And then our perspective, no matter what.>>What was really fascinating about the Nate
Silver article that was based on some of his most recent numbers, was that he was stacking
everything around biting leading the pack. And he was sizing up every other candidate. And I was like, this is so stunning, that
we’ve already gotten to this point that Biden’s the one to beat this early on. One, two, based on these kind of polling numbers,
which are should be suspicious to people based on who’ve they’ve polled. And again, people like Nate Silver, who until
the bell rang in November, 2016, was in the Hillary camp. So I mean, yeah, this kind of premature coverage. This kind of premature polling. I would say just be skeptical around it. And the other thing that I’m sure you’ve talked
about a lot here is that, there is, with cable news networks, a lot of coverage around Biden,
Booty, I can never->>Buttegieg.>>Buttegieg, I’m sorry I’m probably never
gonna talk to this man ever in real life but.>>No, he might also struggle with your name. Now actually he wouldn’t, he wouldn’t because
he probably speaks like 12 languages and probably can get any name right.>>I can meet him a little bit on that too.>>Well that’s true.>>I just didn’t serve in the military and
I don’t think I’m ever gonna do that, but that’s. That’s a whole another story. Anyways, him and that obsession with him and
Beto, it’s fascinating because they’re three white men from different aged generations. So, I think what they’re trying to do is point
out their picks for people who wouldn’t size between each. Each other like the Bernie Sanders, like the
Biden and of course clearly people who are a little bit more moderate than the rest of
the folks like the Warren’s and the Sanders that scare the hell->>Yeah.>>Out of the banks.>>Yeah, I know I shouldn’t have said the
last part [LAUGHS]>>No.>>I’m sorry, sorry, sorry. I just-
>>No, no, no, no, no, no, because I’ve got to say two things about what you’re saying. First of all, look, I want to be fair to Nate
Silver because that’s what we try to do very hard. So, he was more right than the rest of the
establishment on Trump. So, he didn’t’ get it right either but he
was closer to being right, and he’s the only one that I’ve seen point out that Elizabeth
Warren surging probably based on the incredibly detailed policy proposals that she has put
forward. We’ve been telling you that people care about
policy, and on TV, they’re like no, everybody just cares about gloss and shine, and whether
you’re rolling up your sleeves well, right? It’s all about image and who’s young, and
who’s hip, and who speaks Farsi, and who speaks Norwegian, right? Do you play the piano? It’s all about image, right?>>Eating fried chicken with Al Sharpton.>>Right, when we told you, we told you ahead
of time. Does Elizabeth Warren’s got amazing policy
she unveiled? I bet she goes up in the polls. Boom, she goes up in the polls. It’s not like we’re Monday morning quarterbacking
here. So hey, the rest of the media, I know you’re
super impressed by, and those things are impressive by the way that Buddha just speaks Norwegian
and plays great piano, etc. But what’s more impressive is policy that
affects our lives. Yeah, right and that you should make equal
note of that. And you most certainly have not Alex sites
walled, who I’m sure is a perfectly lovely guy asked me to be on the show. But he then, along with another report on
NBC News, this fawning reporter Buttegieg, I gotta be honest with you, it was embarrassing. If we had done something similar about Bernie
Sanders, we would be like ha, we knew it, right? But it was like, Buttegieg is so smart, so
data driven, so my God, he’s so great. But you know what, it turns out, he had a
couple of problems. But, we have a great explanation for that,
then he realized he was missing the human touch. And then he found that human touch and became
a real leader. Well now, with the human touch and all the
data driven smartness, what an unbelievable leader. By the way, if you think I’m exaggerating,
read the piece. I am not exaggerating, it was real. If I was a PR person for Buttegieg, I would
have been embarrassed to write that and give it to the press. I mean they made it seem like his significant
problems with racial relations in South Bend. World wonderful thing that led him to be even
a more heroic leader with with big heart.>>Yeah.>>Yeah, that is not how a lot of people in
South Bend received. Yeah, and I would also say as many of you
have probably seen going around the the policy wonk with sex appeal headline of him like
choking himself with his tie, or whatever. First of all, if you’re gonna designate a
policy wonk in this current crop of candidates, it seems kinda messed up not to give it to
Elizabeth Warren. Especially when the person you do give it
to has explicitly said that he is a new type of candidate and that’s why you can’t find
any details about policies on his website.>>No you cannot call Buttigieg a policy wonk
when he says, I don’t do policy, I do values. He is the least policy oriented, he tells
you he’s the least policy oriented out of all the candidates. He proudly declares I wanna talk about values,
not policies. So when you do that how could you not see
the bias, how could you not see your own bias. If you’re gonna talk about policy, there’s
only two people here. And I’m not saying that because I’m a progressive. Bernie Sanders, admittedly, you have to admit,
a lot of people have admitted, is the one who proposed all these policies in the first
place, and has been proposing for four years. In fact, the mainstream media then turns around
and goes, well since you’ve been the leader on this, we don’t need you anymore. What kind of logic is that, that’s crazy? And then Warren is killing it with detailed,
brilliant policy Initiatives that affect so many Americans. If you gonna talk about who’s the policy one,
I mean that proves bias more than anything else. If you say, if you don’t say the Sanders and
Warren are clear one and two head shoulders above everyone else. If you say, well no Cory Booker, they might
be a good candidates, so otherwise But they also believe in Medicare for All, Bernie’s
idea, Green New Deal, in a lot of ways originally Bernie’s idea, and you go down the list. And it’s almost all Bernie’s ideas in the
beginning, and then you could argue that Warren made them better or more, Warren has added
to them. Well, you can’t make the argument that the
people have, god, those two beat on policy. That is not an argument that you could possibly
make. If you want to, come on the show, I’d love
to have that conversation because I don’t think it’s backed up on the facts.>>Yeah, have you had any insult for the show?>>No, he won’t come on.>>Yeah, look, I’ll go talk to anybody, right? But for them, that’s like, whoa, whoa, whoa,
I wanna get challenged I don’t wanna get challenged, so let’s just get real. That’s what’s happening right now. Look, I’m not talking about Nate now, but
a lot of the mainstream media are so smug in their certainty that they’ve got almost
their own set of alternative facts. And so when you pierce that bubble, they get
super mad at you, they still like the guys who were wrong about the Iraq war are paid
millions upon millions of dollars on television. The people who were right about the Iraq war
shunned. So, I mean, it’s been going on for decades.>>Yeah, I would say that smugness is not
necessarily just confined to the mainstream media. Basically, everyone talking about politics
is, in my view, incredibly smug about it. In any event, on this particular topic, I
do wanna thank the viewer, Nicholas Snow, who clued us into that particular, that facet
of the polling and so thank you for that.

Corn dogs, rollercoasters and politics: The spectacle of the Iowa state Fair


-If you’ve ever been
to a state fair, you know roughly
what to expect. -Have a good day at the fair.
-There’s livestock, rides. And the food comes on a stick. -I want ketchup. -But every four years
at the Iowa State Fair, there’s a different
sort of attraction. ♪ Oh, say, does that
star-spangled ♪ -That’s because the road
to the White House runs straight through
the Des Moines fairgrounds. -All of our veterans
who are here. -Every candidate gets 20 minutes
to make their case to voters. -Just let us thank you
for your service. -The story of this state
is the story of America. -You have a private health
insurance plan that is strong and solid
that you want to hold on to, you should be able
to hold on to that. -This year, with more
than 20 Democratic presidential hopefuls
in the mix, the media presence
and the size of the crowds have become spectacles, as well. -Watch out.
We have a baby on the left. Baby on the left, please. -I got to get there.
-Here we go. -The jungle gyms.
Okay. -But Iowans don’t just
come here to listen. They come with questions.
-Ken has a great question. His wife has Alzheimer’s. And he’s a caregiver,
and he’s not reimbursed. -And those informal exchanges can sometimes
get candidates in trouble. -Reparations for people,
my friend. We can raise taxes —
Of course they are. Everything corporations earn
ultimately goes to people. -In 2011, these comments
from Mitt Romney dogged him for the rest of his campaign. To succeed at the fair,
you have to come off as authentic and unscripted. And there are unwritten rules
to be mindful of. For starters, dress casual. Fred Thompson wore these
fancy loafers here in 2007. -Slip-up like
wearing Gucci loafers. -And he never heard
the end of it. And have fun
but maybe not too much fun. When President Obama
visited in 2012, the Secret Service shut down
the beer tent for hours. The owner later said it cost him
thousands of dollars. Never one to heed the rules, then-candidate Donald Trump
arrived by helicopter in 2015. -Does anybody want
to take a ride? -And then he refused
to go to the soapbox, but he still drew a crowd. The President hasn’t made
an appearance this year, but his name is in the air. -If you were just to flip
on the cable news, why would you think that Donald
Trump’s our president today? Why would you think that Donald
Trump won Iowa by nine points? -These candidates have already
spent months campaigning in Iowa, and the caucus
is still six months away. But what happens at the fair
can leave a lasting impression.

New Leader In 2020 Polls


>>Joe Biden has had a rough couple of weeks
in terms of his gaffes. You can probably fill it in, but Parkland
and Theresa May and he’s getting terror attacks wrong and it’s just he’s fumbling from one
gaffe to another. And his aides have been watching this and
so they apparently have a new strategy that they might implement. They’ve been floating the idea of altering
his schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he’s made in recent days. The allies, growing increasingly nervous about
Biden’s verbal flubs, have said it’s an approach that’s been suggested to campaign officials
on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles. And so effectively by alter his schedule they
mean not have him in public as much.>>Because if he’s in public, he can talk,
and if he can talk,he can gaffe, and they’ve just gotta get right out in front of that. And so you guys have covered a lot of races
over the years. Is it a good sign,when the strategy is to
take you off the campaign trail and out of the public eye?>>No, when you’re trying to hide the candidate,
that probably means you don’t have a good candidate. That’s like Weekend At Bernie’s, where the
guy was dead and they were trying to pretend like he was alive.>>You don’t want to have to pretend like
your candidate is, yeah, yeah, he’s good. He’s ready to go. He’s gonna take a little break, but we’ll
be back. He’s doing all right. So trust us, he’s gonna be fine.>>Yeah, and the thing is, too, so you have
your advice is bad idea, but what ally says he needs to be a strong force on the campaign
trail, but he also has to pace himself. I mean, the thing is, look, he had already
been campaigning less than a lot of the others. Not everybody is campaigning at the same pace
as each other, and Joe Biden joined, not last. There have been others since he joined. But he was one of the last ones. He’s been in this for literally months less
than some of the earliest candidates.>>No guys, they’re telling their own candidate
to shut up. That is not a good sign. No one on planet Earth can pretend that’s
a good sign. One of his allies said, no, no, Biden’s great. He just has a tendency to make blunders later
in the day.>>That’s brutal.>>I’m more of an early morning president. Everything after noon, leave the vice president
to do that.>>Yeah, so, number one, if you’re worried
that your candidate’s too old, saying he’s gotta get the early bird special and he can’t
talk later at night is not a good way to go. And secondly, you still have to be president
at night. So this is, it’s terrible. But another one I was amused by, apparently
a major Democratic donor, according to The Hill, said this. A lot of people are nervous that he’s lost
some of his mojo. They’re getting nervous about him going toe
to toe with Trump, but the problem is there doesn’t seem to be an alternative. There’s 25 people in the race!>>There’s never been this many alternatives.>>That’s right, and so why would a major
Democratic donor say that? Cuz they’re like, well, because number two
and number three are Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. Or Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. And that is not an alternative if you’re a
Democratic donor. They’re like, that’s a nightmare for them. Cuz they actually would end the corruption
or at least they would attempt to end the corruption. So donors are like, I don’t know who’s left. I guess nobody’s left. And they know the other moderates can’t moderates,
conservatives, whatever you want to call them in the race can’t win, because their ideas
suck. They’re just trying to ride off of Biden’s
name recognition. And so, we were told that Hickenlooper was
from a purple state, governor, and conservative Democrat, and that’s how you win in this country. After polling at 0% for most of the race,
dropped out yesterday cuz he had no prayer, cuz it doesn’t work. The voters don’t want conservative, pro-corporate,
pro-donor Democrats. That’s why Biden starting to fade is causing
a panic in the Democratic establishment.>>So here’s the thing. That, obviously, all that I read you, the
new strategy, which they dispute. Some are saying they’re not gonna do that,
but some are saying they are. That sounds like really bad news for Joe Biden
today. But I read something else that sounds like
worse news for Joe Biden. And it involves his best buddy in the entire
world, Barack Obama. So former President Obama, you’ve probably
read this, has taken an active interest in Joe Biden’s presidential campaign even holding
a lunch with his former vice president last month. That all sounds good. Joe wants to hang out with him more anyway. It’s been very clear. But apparently there had been some talk before
Biden launched his candidacy that does not look good now for him. Obama asked to Biden aides to visit with him
in March for briefing on its strategy. Afterward The Times reported that Obama told
the aides they should make sure that Biden does not, quote, embarrass himself or quote,
damage his legacy while running for president. But that’s what he said to the aides, which
is bad, but what he said to Joe might be worse. You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really
don’t, Obama told Mr. Biden earlier this year, according to a person familiar with the exchange.>>Obama’s never believed in him.>>To some extent, the way you say that might
make some difference, but that’s not like, go get them, buddy.>>And look, let’s keep it real on a couple
of different fronts on Obama. Obama convinced Biden not to run last time
around. Cuz Obama doesn’t believe in Biden. Part of the reason he doesn’t believe in Biden
is he kicked the living crap out of Biden in a primary, really, really easily. People forget back in the 2008 primary, it
was mainly Obama versus Hillary Clinton. But there was a whole bunch of other Democrats
in there, including Joe Biden. And Obama had way less name recognition than
Joe Biden, had way less money in the beginning, had less everything and easily crushed Biden
cuz he is not a good candidate. All he’s ever done is win in Delaware, cuz
he was a congressman or a senator from there for as literally my entire life. So he’s never won a contested election in
like 50 years. And why is he even in this race? Because he won a coin toss in effect right. It wasn’t a literal coin toss but Obama’s
like aw, should I go with Evan Bayh or should I go with Joe Biden to appeal to white voters. And he had a couple other names in there,
I’m sure, Chris Dodd, etc. And he’s like, Biden, okay. If Evan Bayh had won the coin toss and was
vice president, does anybody think Joe Biden would be in the presidential race, let alone
leading? No one thinks that. So he has no actual great credentials in being
a candidate. Now, which leads me to the most devastating
part, the actual polling, the Biden fade has begun. So now we got to pull out of Iowa. I believe that’s a fairly relevant state. It’s starting line, change polls. And in a new, we’ve got our leader! Elizabeth Warren, in fact, Joe Biden’s now
tied with Bernie Sanders. So depending on how you wanna frame it, he’s
tied for second, tied for third, and fading and fading. Warren now has an 11 point lead in Iowa against
Biden. Now here’s the thing, you can say hey, that’s
just one poll and you could talk about hey, what is the credibility of that poll, etc. But guys, it doesn’t really matter. Does anyone think that Joe Biden after losing
the lead is going to retake the lead? No one that knows politics thinks that. Once the fate begins, its goodnight Irene. Okay, then it’s late night and he can’t even
talk. And then finally, you wanna talk about a bigger
poll and the whole country. An Economist YouGov poll now has Biden at
21% nationally, and Elizabeth Warren at 20%. She’s only one point behind him. So here comes Warren! And there goes Biden. And guys, the Democratic establishment has
not woken up to this. Warren and Sanders are two and three, with
a guy who’s almost certainly gonna drop out of the top spot. That leaves the top two as progressives.>>Well, they’re afraid of progressives. The same way that they were arguing against
starting impeachment processes because they thought that the impeachment, starting the
impeachment process. They were looking at what it did for Clinton
back then. We’re in a different world now. I think we’re in a world where people can
handle and want a more progressive candidate. So I think they should stop being afraid of
being progressive.>>Yeah, damn right, I wonder if anybody’s
said that before? Look at this tweet I found. The last tweet from election night 2016. I tweeted, mark my words, Elizabeth Warren
will destroy Donald Trump in 2020. It will be a historic landslide. I’m not saying anything. I’m just saying.
