The 2020 New Hampshire Primary: Live updates and results (FULL LIVE STREAM)


>>>IS PRIMARY NIGHT IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE APPEAR VOTERS CAST ABOUT TODAY IN WHAT IS KNOWN AS
THE 1st IN THE NATION PRIMARY. JUST A WEEK AFTER THE CHAOTIC
IOWA CAUCUS. GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO LIVE
COVERED FROM THE WASHINGTON POST. WE ARE BROADCASTING FROM
DOWNTOWN MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE. MOST OF THE POLLS
JUST CLOSED AT 7:00 AND WE DO EXPECT TO SEE SOME RESULTS IN.
WE HAVE A TEAM OF REPORTERS ACROSS THE STATE TONIGHT. LET’S
START WITH JOYCE. >>I AM AT THE WATCH PARTY FOR
BERNIE SANDERS. THE SENATOR FROM NEIGHBORING VERMONT IS THE MAN
TO BEAT TONIGHT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
>> PETE BUTTIGIEG HAD A SURPRISINGLY STRONG PERFORMANCE
IN IOWA AND HIS TEAM IS CONFIDENT THEY CAN DO IT AGAIN
HERE. >> ELIZABETH WARREN WAS A
FAVORITE TO WIN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, BUT HAS STATED IN
RECENT WEEKS. I AM HERE WITH TIMOR AND.
>>A FEW THOUGHTS AMY KLOBUCHAR WOULD STILL BE IN THE RACE AT
THIS MOMENT, BUT SHE CONTINUES TO SURPRISE. WILL NEW HAMPSHIRE
PRESSURE FORWARD? >> ONCE AGAIN WITHOUT REPORTERS
DROPPING AFTER JOINING ME NOW HERE IN MANCHESTER ARE 2 OF MY
WASHINGTON POST COLLEAGUES. JAMES AND AMBER. WELCOME AND
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. HOW IMPORTANT ARE TONIGHT’S RESULTS?
>>IT’S HUGELY IMPORTANT BECAUSE OF THE CHAOS IN IOWA LAST WEEK. IT DID CLARIFY
THINGS, BUT IT DID NOT CRYSTALLIZE THINGS APPEARED
OBVIOUSLY IT TOOK SEVERAL DAYS TO FIGURE OUT A RESULT. I THINK
THIS IS HUGELY IMPORTANT IN ORDER TO WIN NEW HAMPSHIRE WILL
PLAY THE ROLE THAT IOWA TRADITIONALLY HAS.
>> IT IS ALSO A QUESTION OF WHO
LOSES TONIGHT AS WELL. WHAT IS THE MORE IMPORTANT QUESTION
TONIGHT? WHO RISES OR WHO FALLS?>>ABSOLUTELY LOOKING AT THE
BOTTOM OF THE PACK. THERE IS A REALLY TIGHT — BIG NAMES
WITHOUT AT THIS POINT MIGHT BE IN THE 1st OR 2nd TIER. JOE
BIDEN AND ELIZABETH WARREN AMONG THEM. THEY HAD POOR SHOWINGS IN
IOWA. THERE IS A CHANCE THEY FINISHED DISAPPOINTINGLY
TONIGHT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND HAVE SERIOUS QUESTIONS TO DEAL
WITH. >>TO THE QUESTION OF DELEGATE
COUNT AND ALSO THE MOMENTUM AND WE WERE IN IOWA TOGETHER LAST
WEEKEND WE WERE LOOKING AT THIS LIKE WHO WOULD LEAVE IOWA STRONG
AND WHEN THE NIGHT DEVOLVED INTO NO RESULT CHAOS AND LEFT
OPENINGS FOR EVERYBODY TO A SORT OF SAY I DID WELL TONIGHT.
>>IT ENDED UP NOT WORKING OUT WELL FOR ANYONE. THERE WAS A
FIELDING THE DAY AFTER IT WAS GOOD FOR JOE BIDEN BECAUSE THE
RESULTS HAVE OBSCURED WHAT A BAD NIGHT HE HAD. IT WAS CLEAR HE
HAD A BAD NIGHT IN IOWA.>>YOU COULD EVEN HEAR IT IN HIS
VOICE THAT NIGHT. >>PETE AND BERNIE WERE
INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATED THEY DID NOT GET WHAT THEY WANT TO COMING
OUT OF THAT NIGHT AND I THINK YOU HAVE HEARD AND SENSED
BITTERNESS OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS.
>> THE BIG QUESTION IS WHO WON IN IOWA AND A WEEK LATER THE NUMBERS HAVE FINALLY
SETTLED. EVEN THOUGH THERE IS THE CONTROVERSY OVER THOSE
RESULTS. LET’S LOOK AT HOW THINGS HAVE TURNED OUT. 26.2% STATE DELEGATES GIVING HIM
14 OF I WAS DELICATES BE BERNIE SANDERS JUST SLIGHTLY BEHIND
WITH 26.1 AND 12 DELEGATES. ELIZABETH WARREN GOT 18.1% AND 8
DELEGATES. JOE BIDEN GOT 15.8% AND 6 DELEGATES. ALSO PETE
BUTTIGIEG WITH 12.3% IN 1 DELEGATE . THIS YEAR THEY WERE
FOR THE POPULAR VOTE COUNT AS WELL IN BERNIE SANDERS LEAD THAT
CAUSING HIM TO DECLARE A VICTORY OF SORTS EVEN AS PETE BUTTIGIEG
EDGED HIM OUT IN THE DELEGATE COUNT. A REMINDER TODAY HERE IN
NEW JAMS OR — IN NEW HAMPSHIRE MORE DELEGATES ARE AT STAKE HERE
THEY ARE SO CLOSE WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS.
>>I TALKED TO POLITICOS ON OUR SIDE OF THE DEMOCRATIC SPECTRUM
WHO SPUN IT EVERY WHICH WAY. THIS IS GOOD FOR BIDEN BECAUSE
IT WAS NOT LIKE HE CAME IN 4th HEADLINE WAS A BIG PART OF THE
NIGHT. PETE BUTTIGIEG AND SANDERS WERE FRUSTRATED. I THINK
THE END RESULT FINALLY ON THE NIGHT IN THE NEW HAMPSHIRE
PRIMARY IS THAT NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTERS WHO MIGHT HAVE HAD ONE OR
2 OR 3 CHOICES IN THE BIG FIELD STILL HAVE THAT. NEW HAMPSHIRE
DEMOCRAT POLITICO TOLD ME THEY LIKE TO MAKE THEIR OWN
DECISION, BUT THEY ALSO LOOK TO I WILL FOR INSTRUCTION. MAKE MY
1st WAS DID NOT DO THAT WELL SO I WILL KNOCK THEM OFF. THERE IS
LESS DECISIVENESS RIGHT NOW AND THAT CREATES ON DECISIVENESS
TONIGHT. >>PEOPLE LOVE TO SAY IOWA PICKS
CORN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE PICKS PRESIDENTS. IT’S FUNNY BECAUSE
PEOPLE LOVE TO INSIST THEY DO NOT REALLY PAY ATTENTION TO
IOWA. THERE WAS A RALLY RIGHT AFTER THEY HAD A TALKED TO HALF
A DOZEN PEOPLE WHO SAID I WAS NOT TAKING HIM SERIOUSLY AT ALL.
HE WAS NOT EVEN ON MY LIST. I THOUGHT HE WAS AUDITIONING FOR
VICE PRESIDENT. BUT NOW I AM TAKING HIM SERIOUSLY. THAT IS
WHY YOU SAW SOME OF THE POOLS JUMPING 20 POINTS FROM MONDAY
NIGHT TO THURSDAY NIGHT. >>WE WILL BE ALL THROUGHOUT THE
NIGHT LOOKING AT THE NUMBERS AND HOW THEY COME IN AND WE WILL
CHECK IN WITH THEIR ELECTION INCITING BACK IN WASHINGTON WHO
WILL HELP US MAKE SENSE OF IT ALL. LET’S GO THERE NOW. JEREMY,
GOOD EVENING. WHAT ARE THE PRELIMINARY EXIT POLLS TELLING
US AT THIS POINT? >>WE DO HAVE SOME OF THE EARLY
EXIT POLL NUMBERS. FOR THE TO MORE INSIGHT INTO THAT WE HAVE A
PULLING ANALYST. EMILY, WHAT ARE THE 3 BIG TAKEAWAYS HAVE FROM
TONIGHT EARLY EXIT POLL NUMBERS?>>ONE THING WE HAVE LEARNED IS
THEY ARE PRELIMINARY SO THEY COULD CHANGE AS THE EVENING GOES
ON. ABOUT HALF OF NEW HAMPSHIRE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY VOTERS MADE
THEIR DECISION ON WHO TO VOTE FOR IN THE LAST FEW DAYS. THAT
IS A LOT MORE THAN WE SAW IN IOWA WHERE 36% SAID THEY MADE
THE DECISION THE LAST FEW DAYS AND ABOUT TWICE AS MANY WHO SAID
THE SAME IN NEW HAMPSHIRE IN 2016. THAT IS A PRETTY EXCITING
NUMBER. WE ALSO KNOW THAT — PRELIMINARY EXIT POLL DATA THAT
ABOUT 6 IN 10 SAY THEY PREFER A CANDIDATE THAT WOULD BE TRUMP IN
THE GENERAL ELECTION AS OPPOSED TO SOMEONE THEY AGREED WITH ON
THE ISSUE SUCH ABOUT ONE IN 10. >>SOME OF THESE THINGS ARE A
LITTLE BIT INTERESTING TO ME. LET’S BRING AND DAVID FOR A
LITTLE BIT OF CONTEXT. A DATA ANALYST AND A REALLY SWELL GUY WHO WORKS FOR
POST OPINIONS. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN TO YOU? WHAT IS YOUR BIG
TAKE AWAY FROM SOME OF THESE EARLY EXIT POLLS?
>>THOSE NUMBERS ARE REALLY INTERESTING AND THEY MAKE ME
WANT TO WATCH 3 CANDIDATES IN PARTICULAR. IF PEOPLE ARE
DECIDING IN THE LAST FEW DAYS THEY ARE PROBABLY TRYING TO —
WE KNOW AMY KLOBUCHAR HAD A MUCH LOGIT PERFORMANCE IN THAT
DEBATE IN SHE HAS BEEN GAINING IN THE RETAIL END OF SOME OF
THESE POLLS. I WANT TO WATCH HER IN JOE BIDEN WHO IS SORT OF A
DISAPPOINTING 4th PLACE IN IOWA. HE HAS BEEN LOSING SUPPORT IN
SORT OF A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT POLLS NATIONALLY AND IN VARIOUS
STATES. I WOULD WANT TO SEE IF THAT HOLDS UP. I WOULD ALSO WANT
TO WASH PETE BUTTIGIEG. HE IS A DEMOCRAT — A DESCENDENT FOR
THE STATE. HE DOES WELL WITH OLDER VOTERS. SUMMERALL AND
WHITE VOTERS. HE WON I WILL BY THE STATE DELEGATES WITH THE
ACCOUNT. HE WOULD BE ONE TO WATCH AND SEE IF HE’S GAINING
MOMENTUM. >>THAT IS OUTSTANDING. THAT IS
THE KIND OF STUFF WE WILL BE KEEPING AN EYE ON HERE IN THE
STUDIO FOR YOU TONIGHT . >>I KNOW THE POST HAS A COOL
TOOL THAT LETS PEOPLE CREATE THEIR OWN ELECTION FORECAST. HOW
DOES THIS WORK? >>IT’S GREAT. I HAVE IT MARKED
ON MY PHONE TO THE PERSON WHO BUILT THAT IS RIGHT HERE IN THE
STUDIO. THIS IS YOUR BABY. TELL US ABOUT HOW THE SIMULATOR
WORKS. >>IT’S MY BABY. WE WILL HAVE
ONE OF THE CINEMAS FOR ALL OF THE MAJOR PRIMARIES. WE HAD ONE
IN IOWA AND WE HAVE ONE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE NOW. WE HAVE OTHER
ONES COMING. ESSENTIALLY WHAT IT DOES IS IT ALLOWS OUR USERS AND
READERS TO ADJUST TO DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE ELECTION FUNDRAISING AND
PULLING AND OTHER ASPECTS OF THINGS IN SORT OF SEE HOW IT
PLAYS OUT UNDER DIFFERENT CONDITIONS. WE ACTUALLY DID A
SPECIALIZED RUN OF THE SIMULATOR FOR THE SHOW TO TRY TO GET THEM
LIKELY RANGES FOR THE CANDIDATES. WHAT WE FOUND IS
THAT IN OUR LIKELY RANGE WE HAD SANDERS GETTING 21-36% OF THE
FINAL VOTE. PETE BUTTIGIEG SUMMER BETWEEN 14-28. BIDEN,
WORN, AND AMY KLOBUCHAR ALL IN A 7-18% RANGE. THESE ARE NOT HARD
AND FAST NUMBERS. THEY ARE ASSIMILATED LIKELY RANGE. IT IS
POSSIBLE FOR A CANDIDATE TO GO ABOVE OR BELOW IF THEY BOOM OR
BUST. IT REALLY PAINTS A PICTURE OF WHERE SANDERS IS
AHEAD AND PETE BUTTIGIEG IS WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE. A WIN
BY ANYBODY ELSE WOULD SORT OF BE AN UPSET.
>>IS THERE ANYTHING IN THAT THAT DRAWS YOUR ATTENTION OR
MAKES YOU THINK? >>NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS IN
THESE PRIMARIES WHEN WE MOVED TO THE GENERAL ELECTION THAT IS
GOING TO BE AN INTERESTING THING. ABOUT 8 OUT OF 10 PRIMARY
VOTERS SAID THEY WOULD VOTE FOR THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE NO MATTER
WHO IT WAS. >>OUTSTANDING. THAT IS WHAT WE
HAVE FOR YOU TONIGHT. BACK TO YOU ON THE GROUND IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE. >>THINK YOU SO MUCH. AS WE LOOK
AT HEALTHY POLLS HAVE TRACKED OVER THE MONTH IT HAS REALLY
BEEN A YO-YO. IT HAS BEEN ALL OVER THE PLACE. A LOOK BACK TO
OCTOBER AND WE SAW JOE BIDEN DOING WELL AND THEN WARREN AND
THEN PETE BUTTIGIEG IN BERNIE SANDERS. WHAT DOES IT SAY TO
YOU THAT VOTERS ARE EVOLVING AND CHANGING THEIR DECISIONS AS THE
WEEKS HAVE GONE BY? >>THERE IS AN IDENTITY CRISIS
IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IN TENSION BETWEEN THE HEART AND
THE HEAD BETWEEN WHETHER TO PICK SOMEONE
WHO CAN DEFEAT DONALD TRUMP VERSUS SOMEONE WHO AGREES WITH
YOU ON THE ISSUES AND THEN WHAT DOES IT MEAN IF THEY WANT TO
PEEK SOME — PICK SOMEONE TO DEFEAT DONALD TRUMP. I THINK
THIS PREFERENCES OF SORT OF CHANGED OVER THE PAST FEW
MONTHS. I THINK SOME OF THE CANDIDATES HAVE GOTTEN SCRUTINY
THAT WERE NOT REALLY READY FOR IT. EVERYBODY THE ROSE TO THE
TOP. I THINK IT ALSO REFLECT THAT A LOT OF DEMOCRATS JUST DO
NOT LOVE ANY INDIVIDUAL CANDIDATE. THE FIELD HAS WENT UP
PRETTY DRAMATICALLY ALREADY. I THINK IT WILL — IT STARTED OFF WITH A LOT OF
PEOPLE. THERE WAS A LOT OF SHOPPING RUN. I WAS SHOPPING
RUN, BUT IN THIS CASE I FOUND A LOT OF VOTERS ARE IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF DAYS LITERALLY IN THEIR
PERSONAL JOURNEY WALK-THROUGH THAT WHERE THEY SAID LAST YEAR I
WAS FOR BERNIE WHEN HE GOT IN AND I WAS FOR ELIZABETH AND ONE
OF THE THINGS ABOUT A PLACE LIKE NEW HAMPSHIRE IS THEY USE THE
CANDIDATES 1st NAME AS IF THEY KNOW THEM. I WAS FOR ELIZABETH
AND THEN I WAS FOR JOE BIDEN BECAUSE I THOUGHT HE COULD BE
TRUMP AND WE NEEDED TO BE TRUMP. AND THEN I WAS FOR PETE
BUTTIGIEG AND NOW I AM FOR AMY. YOU FIND PEOPLE WHO HAVE
LEGITIMATELY SORT OF GONE THIS WHOLE CIRCUIT AND THEN THE OTHER
THING THAT IS IN FLUX — YOU KNOW YOU HAD SOMEONE LIKE CORY
BOOKER WHO HAD A FALLING AND SO THOSE PEOPLE KIND OF WENT ON THE
MARKET AND HAVE MOVED AROUND. IT IS DEFINITELY MORE FLUID THAN IN
PAST YEARS. SOME OF THAT IS THE CONFUSION FROM IOWA. SOME OF IT
IS THE WILLINGNESS TO — YOU KNOW — JOE BIDEN WAS NEVER
PARTICULARLY STRONG FRONT-RUNNER. I WILL ALSO LIKES
TO BE CONTRARY AND HISTORICALLY. WHEN YOU LOOK BACK IN 1992 IN
1988 THE INCUMBENT CANNOT NECESSARILY COUNT ON NEW
HAMPSHIRE AND SO I THINK JOE BIDEN WAS NEVER PARTICULARLY
STRONG IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. IT WAS NOT CLEAR WHO THE NON-BIDEN
CANDIDATE WOULD BE. >>JOE BIDEN WILL NOT BE HERE
TONIGHT. HE HAS GONE TO SOUTH CAROLINA.
>>YOU ARE RAISING YOUR EYEBROWS AND I THINK THAT IS A REFLECTION
OF THIS. I WAS AT AN EVENT LAST NIGHT DOWN THE STREET WITH HIM
AND HE LOOKED AT VOTERS AND SAID STICK WITH ME 24 HOURS. THE
TIGHTNESS IN HIS VOICE CAME THROUGH. 24 MORE HOURS. WE ARE
GOING TO HAVE A GOOD PRIMARY WHEN WE GO TO THE SOUTH. HE
COMPLETELY SKIPPED OVER THEIR STATE AND THEIR VOTERS AND THEN
SURE ENOUGH THE NEXT DAY WE FIND OUT HE IS GOING TO SOUTH
CAROLINA. IT SPEAKS TO THE TROUBLE HE IS IN. IF YOU ARE JOE
BIDEN YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE PULLING WITH AMY KLOBUCHAR.
SOMEONE WHO IS CONSIDERED IN THE 3rd OR 4th TIER OF CANDIDATES
THUS FAR. >>LITERALLY THE 1st THING HE
SAID IN THE DEBATE FRIDAY NIGHT. THE OPENING STATEMENT WAS I’M
NOT GOING TO DO VERY WELL HERE. I WON’T WAS A GUT PUNCH.
>>IT WAS NOT STRATEGIC. I TALKED
TO STAFFERS WHO WERE KIND OF HITTING HIMSELF ON THE HEAD BUT
WHY WOULD YOU SAY THAT AT THE TOP OF THE DEBATE? I WAS WITH
HIM SUNDAY AT HAS QUITE A FEW MILES SOUTH OF HERE AND HE
JUMPED UP AND GOT INCREDIBLY EMOTIONAL. I THINK HE HAS BEEN
ALL OVER THE PLACE. I THINK WHAT WAS HAPPENING IS BECAUSE HE WAS
FADING I THINK IN SOME WAYS HE BECAME MORE EMOTIONAL AND. HE
JUST GAVE A RAMBLING SPEECH FRANKLY ON SATURDAY NIGHT A FEW
BLOCKS FROM HERE AT THE STATE PARTY DINNER WE TALKED ABOUT
GOING TO A FOOD BANK AND HOW SAD IT WAS AND HE WAS IN MANY WAYS
VERY EMOTIONAL. HE REALIZED HIS WHOLE PITCH IN IOWA WAS I AM THE
MOST ELECTABLE CANDIDATE. WHEN YOU FINISH WHERE HE DIDN’T LIKE
THE 4th IT’S HARD TO THEN MAKE THE ARGUMENT. I THINK THAT WAS SORT OF SHATTERED. THEY ARE
STILL GRASPING AROUND FOR WHAT THEIR MESSAGE IS GOING TO BE IN
RIGHT NOW THERE MESSAGES I CAN DO REALLY WELL WITH
AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTERS, BUT IF HE FINISHES FIFTH-YEAR TONIGHT
THAT IS NOT A SURE THING. HILLARY CLINTON WAS
OVERWHELMINGLY FAVORED AMONG THE BLACK VOTERS IN 2008 UNTIL
BARACK OBAMA TRENTO IOWA AND THEN EVERYTHING CHANGED.
>>AFTER THIS IT’S NEVADA AND THEN SOUTH CAROLINA. OUR
REPORTERS HAVE BEEN COVERING THE LEAD UP TO TONIGHT HERE IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE, SO LET’S CHECK IN WITH JOYCE WHO IS LIVE WITH THE
BERNIE SANDERS CAMPAIGN RIGHT HERE IN MANCHESTER. I KNOW HE
ASKED FOR THE PARTIAL RECOUNT IN IOWA, BUT HE ALSO DECLARED A
VICTORY THERE GOING INTO NEW HAMPSHIRE. WHAT GIVES?
>>HE HAS HAD MULTIPLE EVENTS LEADING UP TO TONIGHT AND MOST
OF THEM STARTED OFF BY TALKING ABOUT HIS PERFORMANCE IN IOWA. MANLEY THAT HE WON OF THE
POPULAR VOTE BY 6000 MORE VOTES. THAT REALLY HAS GIVEN HIS
SUPPORTERS AND HIS CAMPAIGN A BOOST OF ENERGY GOING INTO
TONIGHT. THEY ARE ESPECIALLY CONFIDENT THAT NOT ONLY CAN HE
BE TRUMP IN THE GENERAL ELECTION, BUT THEY SAY THEY ARE
LOOKING FORWARD TO A DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE WHO WILL BRING THE
DEMOCRATIC PARTY TO THE LEFT. A PARTY THEY FEEL HAS MOVED TOO
FAR TO THE RIGHT. THE SPURS ALSO ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THERE IS A
LARGE POPULATION OF FELLOW DEMOCRATIC VOTERS WHO ARE AFRAID
TO VOTE FOR BERNIE SANDERS. MAYBE THEY ALIGN IDEOLOGICALLY
WITH HIM, BUT IF YOU LIKE HE IS A BIT OF A RISK POLITICALLY. WE
TALKED TO MANY OF THOSE SUPPORTERS ABOUT THAT VERY
ISSUE. HERE AS WELL BUT ONE VOTER HAD TO SAY.
>>THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT RADICAL IDEAS. REST ASSURED, HE
IS NOT GOING TO BE ELECTED KING. HE WOULD BE ELECTED THE HEAD OF
THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH AND IT WILL BE UP TO THE PEOPLE AND THE
CONGRESS TO GET THIS AGENDA MOVED FORWARD. I THINK IF YOU DO
NOT START FROM SOME KIND OF POSITION — IF YOU START LOW AND
THEN YOU MODERATE TO A LOWER POSITION YOU DO NOT GET ANYTHING
DONE. I THINK WE NEED A CANDIDATE THAT STARTS HIGH
ASPIRATION ONLY AND THEN PERHAPS TO GET
SOMETHING DONE HE WILL HAVE TO GIVE IN A LITTLE BIT, BUT AT
LEAST WE START AT SOMEPLACE GOOD. THAT IS WHY I THINK THE
MODERATES CAN’T DO IT .
>>DESPITE THE CRITICISM OF MODERATES THOSE EXACT VOTERS
TOLD ME THAT COME NOVEMBER THEY WILL BE VOTING FOR WHOEVER THE
DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE IS. WE WILL HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT ALTHOUGH
THERE WAS SO MUCH TALK ABOUT ELECTABILITY DURING THE PRIMARY
PROCESS ULTIMATELY WHAT I AM HEARING OVER AND OVER AGAIN FROM
DEMOCRATIC VOTERS IS THAT THE MAIN REASON THEY ARE GOING OUT
TO THE POLLS IS SOLELY FOR THE DESIRE TO GET TRUMP OUT OF
OFFICE, LIBBY. >>THANK YOU. JORGE IS WITH THE
PETE BUTTIGIEG CAMPAIGN, SO LET’S GO THERE. AFTER A STRONG
PERFORMANCE IN IOWA LAST WEEK HOW DID THE CAMPAIGN BUILD ON
THE MOMENTUM? >> SINCE HIS PERCEIVED DELEGATE WIN
IN IOWA HE CAME HERE TO NEW HAMPSHIRE WITH A TON OF
OPTIMISM. YOU CAN SEE THE ENERGY AMONGST THE LONG CROWDS AND
LINES OF CROWDS — PEOPLE GATHERED IN THIS NEW HAMPSHIRE
COLD WAITING TO HEAR HIM SPEAK. WE SPOKE TO SOME OF THE VOTERS
AND SOME OF THEM WERE DIEHARD PEA SUPPORTERS. SOME OF THEM
WERE STILL UNDECIDED. WHAT I HEARD FROM A LOT OF PEOPLE IS
THAT NO MATTER WHAT THEY WERE IMPRESSED WITH HIS COLDNESS AND
THEY TOLD ME THAT THIS WAS A CANDIDATE THEY COULD GET BEHIND
AND THAT THIS WAS SOMEONE YOU WOULD HOPE TO SEE WHO COULD GO
AGAINST THE DEMOCRATIC RIVALS, BUT ALSO FACE AGAINST TRUMP.
TAKE A LISTEN. >>HE IS THE EXACT OPPOSITE. HE
HAS COMMON SENSE AND PATIENCE. HE SPEAKS WITH RESPECTS. I HAVE
NOT SEEN HIM FLY OFF OF THE HANDLE TO RESPOND TO ANY
CRITICISM. I AM LIKE HE IS A REAL PERSON THAT CAN HOLD
TOGETHER. WE ALREADY HAVE A LOWERED AND BOISTEROUS
PERSONALITY IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND WE NEED SOMEONE WITH A
LITTLE MORE — I TOLD SOMEONE I MISS BORING POLITICS. I DO NOT WANT
TO HAVE TO TURN ON CNN EVERY DAY TO SEE WHAT I MISS THAT IS SO
IMPORTANT. ORIGINAL TO CHILL FOR LITTLE WHILE AND NOW THAT THEY
GOT IT AND THAT EVERYTHING IS GOOD.
>>RIGHT NOW NO ONE HAS ANY IDEA WHERE WE ARE GOING WITH THIS
PRESIDENT THAT IS IN THERE. I THINK WITH PETE HE NEEDS TO
BRING EVERYBODY TOGETHER. I THINK HE HAS THAT KNOWLEDGE AND
KNOW-HOW TO LISTEN AND MAKE A DECISION FROM THE AND I THINK HE
IS THE GUY TO DO IT.>>THE VOTERS WERE TALKING TO ME
ABOUT UNITY. THEY WANT A CANDIDATE WHO CAN BRING ALL
TYPES OF DEMOCRATS TOGETHER. I TALKED TO A FEW BERNIE SANDERS
SUPPORTERS. PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR HIM IN 2016 AND HAD NOT RULED
OUT VOTING FOR HIM THIS YEAR. THEY WERE WORRIED SANDERS
MESSAGE MAY PUSH AWAY TOO MANY MODERATE VOTERS. THEY WERE
LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN RING IN ALL KINDS OF VOTERS. THIS IS
SOMEONE WHO THEY THOUGHT GOING FORWARD THEY COULD GET BEHIND.
WE WILL BE HERE ALL NIGHT, BUT THAT IS IT FOR ME NOW. BACK TO
YOU. >>THANK YOU. MUCH OF THE FOCUS
THE PAST WEEK HAS BEEN ON THE CONFUSION OUT OF IOWA AND THE
LACK OF CLEAR RESULTS IN THE 1st COUPLE OF DAYS. A BIG QUESTION
IS HOW CAN THE CHAOS IMPACT NEW HAMPSHIRE’S PRIMARY? LET’S GO TO
THE POST AND JEREMY FOR MORE ON THAT.
>>ONE OF THE THINGS WE HAVE BEEN WATCHING THIS WEEK IS THOSE
CRAZY RESULTS WE GOT OUT OF IOWA. THERE WAS A LOT OF PROMISE
FOR US EARLY ON IN THE NIGHT HERE WE WERE SUPER EXCITED TO
SEE THESE EARLY VOTE TOTALS THAT WERE GOING TO SHOW US A LOT OF
THE STRENGTH OF THE VOTERS WHO WERE BAKKEN CANDIDATES. WE WANT
TO GET THESE ALIGNMENT NUMBERS FOR THE 1st TIME FROM THE IOWA
DEMOCRATIC PARTY. I WAS WITH THE BEAGLE BECAUSE IT ALLOWED US TO
UNDERSTAND JUST WHERE THE BROAD BASE OF SUPPORT FOR INDIVIDUAL
CANDIDATES WERE COMING FROM. AS YOU KNOW, THAT IS NOT EXACTLY
WHAT WE GOT ON THE NIGHT OF IOWA. WE GOT A LITTLE BUT OF
CONFUSION AND WE UNDERSTAND NOW A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT WHY THAT
WAS TRUE. SOME OF THE CONFUSION IS BECAUSE THEY WERE EXPECTING
THE PRECINCT AND CAUCUS JUST TO DO A LOT OF WORK ON SITE. LOTS
OF MATH IN MOVEMENT OF THE NUMBERS BACK AND FORTH ACROSS AN
APP OR MAYBE OVER A TELEPHONE LINE THAT WAS NOT PICKING UP.
THAT WAS THE STATE OF THINGS AS WE LEFT THE STATE BUT WHAT I
WANT TO TALK ABOUT A LITTLE BIT NOW IS HOW THE RESULTS ARE GOING
TO IMPACT OUR WE. THE WAY WE WILL UNDERSTAND THAT IS THROUGH
A MODEL THAT WE HAVE HERE THAT EXPLAINS POSTED ON GOOGLE
HUNDRED — 2016 AND THE CANDIDATES THIS
YEAR. IPR IN THE TOP CORNER YOU CAN SEE HILLARY CLINTON AND HER
FLOW OF STATE DELEGATE EQUIVALENTS ARE ESTIMATED USING
THIS BLUE-RIBBON. WHEN YOU — YOU CAN SEE A LOT OF THE FLOW OF
HER STATE DELEGATE EQUIVALENT WENT TO JOE BIDEN TO PETE
BUTTIGIEG AND AMY KLOBUCHAR AND ACTUALLY A LITTLE BIT TO
ELIZABETH WARREN, WHICH IS REALLY INTERESTING. THIS MAKES
UP THE LAND THAT IS THE ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATES AND NOW
THERE IS ALSO A 2nd AND YOU CAN SEE HERE THE 2016 VERSION OF
BERNIE SANDERS IS OUR PROGRESSIVE LINE AND THAT YELLOW
RIBBON HERE SHOWS THAT STANDARDS GOT A LARGE MAJORITY OF HIS OLD
2016 VOTES, BUT HE DID NOT GET ALL OF THEM. A LOT OF HIS VOTES
WENT HERE TO ELIZABETH WARREN IN 2020 AS WELL AS A COUPLE TO PETE
BUTTIGIEG. THIS IS INTERESTING FOR US BECAUSE THEY WERE THE
CANDIDATES THAT WE SAW ABLE TO CROSS OVER FROM ONE LINE INTO
ANOTHER LANE. THAT WILL BE REALLY INTERESTING. FOR A LITTLE
MORE ON THAT NEW HAMPSHIRE BUT WE WILL COME OVER TO TALK TO
DAVID . A POSTED FINANCE COLUMNIST AND
DATA ANALYST. WHAT IS IT THAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR FROM THOSE
CANDIDATES THROUGH THIS WEEK? HOW DID I WAS SET THEM UP AND
WHAT IS IT WE ARE EXPECTING TO SEE TONIGHT?
>>DESPITE ALL THE CRAZINESS OF THE IOWA CAUCUSES INTERIM AROUND
THE RESULTS WE GOT AN EXPECTED CHANGE IN HOW NEW HAMPSHIRE
VOTERS BEHAVED IN RESPONSE TO THAT. NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTERS WERE
REALLY TUNED IN. THERE WERE A LOT OF LATE DECIDERS AND THAT
MEANT A BIG SURGE FOR PETE BUTTIGIEG WHO DECLARED THE
WINNER OF IOWA AFTER THEY GOT YOU MUST DELEGATE — IT ALSO
MEANT A SIGNIFICANT SLIDE FOR JOE BIDEN WHO PLACED A
DISAPPOINTING 4th AND MET BERNIE SANDERS INCREASES LEAD BY A BIT.
AMY GOT A LITTLE BOOST AFTER THE DEBATE, BUT WE WILL HAVE TO SEE
HOW IT SHAKES OUT WITH THE RESULTS.
>>I AM EXCITED WE WILL HAVE THOSE RESULTS TO SHOW YOU
TONIGHT. I CANNOT WAIT TO BRING THEM. NOW WE GO BACK ON THE
GROUND TO THE BE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
>>I LOVE THE GRAPHIC THAT JEREMY SHOWED US THAT SHOWS
WHERE VOTERS WERE AND HOW THEY MIGRATED OR MOVED OR STAYED THE
SAME IN THE CASE OF SOME BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTERS TO TALK ABOUT
IOWA. BERNIE SANDERS GRAND HILLARY
CLINTON HERE YEARS AGO BEATING HIM BY 20 POINTS. THAT WAS A BIG
BLOW TO THE HILLARY CLINTON CAMPAIGN TO MY COUNTER OUT OF
COURSE. SHE WENT ON TO BECOME THE NOMINEE, BUT HOW WELL DOES
HE HAVE TO PERFORM TONIGHT FOR THE NIGHT TO BE A SUCCESS?
>>THAT IS A GREAT QUESTION. WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO SEE US AS
OPPONENTS TRYING TO SPEND THAT. IF HE WINS HE IS SORT OF
DISFAVORED TO DO — THEY WILL SAY YOU HAVE TO’S — IT WILL BE
INTERESTING TO COMPARE LOOKING AT THOSE LAND KIND OF HOW MUCH
SUPPORT THE PROGRESSIVE WING OF THE PARTY AND ESTABLISHMENT WING
OF THE PARTY HAVE BECAUSE THERE IS KIND OF A COLLECTIVE PROBLEM
WHERE THEY ARE DIVIDING UP THE VOTE BETWEEN — BECAUSE AMY IS
SEARCHING JOE BIDEN WHO WAS IN THE LEAD FADING — THEY ARE GOING TO SCATTER, SO WE
WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE — ISSUED EARLIER THE GRAPHIC WITH
THE RANGE OF EXPECTED SUPPORT AS SANDERS ON THE HIGH SIDE THAT
WERE ON THE LOW SIDE OF THAT ORDER SOME OF THE SUPPORT GO TO
WAR AND? THE BIG QUESTION FOR SANDERS IS DOES HE EXPAND –‘S WHOLE THEORY IS THE REASON
YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR ME AND THE REASON I AM ELECTABLE IN A
GENERAL ELECTION IS I’M GOING TO BRING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE INTO
THE POLITICAL PROCESS WHO NEVER VOTED BEFORE. JUST LIKE THE WAY
TRUMPETED IN MANY WAYS ACTUALLY AND I WILL MOBILIZE PEOPLE AND
GET YOUNG PEOPLE ENGAGED AND INVOLVED. HE WAS NOT ABLE TO DO
THAT IN IOWA. HE SAID HE WOULD . THAT ALL OF THESE ORGANIZERS.
THEY REALLY DID NOT EXPAND TALK ABOUT THE PERCENTAGES, BUT
TURNER WAS CLOSE TO WHAT IT WAS IN 2016. FAR SHORT OF 2008 WHEN
BARACK OBAMA WAS COMPETING AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON AND JOHN
EDWARDS BUT HE WASN’T ABLE TO DO IT IN IOWA. NEW HAMPSHIRE IS IS
ON BACK DOOR AND AN OPEN PRIMARY. IN ADDRESSING THE
REGISTRATION. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO MAKE A BIG COMMITMENT TO WAIT IN
A CAUCUS FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS. YOU CAN GO — NEW HAMPSHIRE —
WE WILL SEE TONIGHT IS WAS SANDERS ABLE TO BRING NEW PEOPLE
INTO THE ELECTORATE OR IS HE BASICALLY KIND OF GETTING 30 OR
1 IN 3 TRADITIONAL DEMOCRATIC VOTERS?
>>AND LOTOF CENTERS OPPONENTS ARE TRYING TO SPIN THIS AND SAY
IF HE DOES NOT HAVE THIS BLOWOUT OF A NIGHT LIKE 4 YEARS AGO IT
IS A LOSS AND HIS TEAM IS SAYING SOMETHING SO DIFFERENT. THERE
JUST LOOKING FOR A CLEAN WIN BASICALLY. ARE YOU WATCHING THE
NUMBERS AND WHAT WOULD MEAN SUCCESS FOR SANDERS CAMPAIGN?
>>IT’S SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT, RIGHT? HE IS NOT GOING
TO WIN WITH 60% OF THE VOTE LIKE HE DID 4 YEARS AGO. AT THE SAME
TIME HE HAS GOT TO INCREASE TURNOUT AND SHOW THAT HE CAN DO
THAT. PROGRESSIVE STRATEGISTS WILL SAY TO YOU IN IOWA TURNOUT
WASN’T GREAT, BUT YOUNG PEOPLE VOTED BY A 3rd OF THE AMOUNT
MORE MODERATE DEMOCRATIC STRATEGISTS SAY THAT IS NOT
ENOUGH FOR US. I THINK THE QUESTION HERE FOR ME
IS CAN SANDERS SHOW I CAME CLOSE TO WINNING IN IOWA. I’M GOING TO
WIN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND LOOK AT ME EXPANDING THE ELECTORATE IN
SUCH UNSPORTING STATE FOR DEMOCRATS IN NOVEMBER.
>>OF OUT OF FOCUS ON AMY KLOBUCHAR AND WE WILL CONTINUE
TO TALK ABOUT HER TONIGHT. OUR COLLEAGUE IS WITH THE AMY
KLOBUCHAR CAMPAIGN IN CONCORD. YOU WERE INITIALLY GOING TO
FOLLOW JOE BIDEN TONIGHT, BUT PLANS CHANGED BECAUSE HE IS NOT
APPEARING AT HIS OWN EVENT THIS EVENING. TELL US ABOUT HOW
THINGS ARE GOING FOR YOU. >> THAT IS TRUE. WHICH
INSTABILITY BABY WE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE TO FOLLOW JOE
BIDEN DIE AND NOW WE KNOW HE WILL NOT BE THERE IN PERSON. HE
IS INSTEAD GOING TO DO A LIVE STREAM SOME FROM SOUTH CAROLINA
WHERE HE IS HAVING A BIG KICKOFF EVENT. THEY WENT STRAIGHT THERE
AND THEY WILL GREET THE SUPPORTERS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE VIA
A LIFESTREAM. HIS DAUGHTER WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE AT THE NEW
HAMPSHIRE EVEN, BUT HE IS NOT HERE. NOW WE ARE AT AMY
KLOBUCHAR’S PARTY. OVER THE WEEKEND AND TODAY WHEN WE WENT
TO PULL INSIDE THERE WAS A LOT OF ENERGY FOR AMY. MAYBE WE DID
NOT SEE THAT A YEAR AGO. WE ARE HEARING FROM THE VOTERS AND THEY
REALLY LIKE HOW SHE HANDLED HERSELF IN THE DEBATE ON FRIDAY.
ESPECIALLY THE MOMENT WHEN SHE TALKED TO PETE BUTTIGIEG AND
TOOK HIM TO TASK FOR SOME OF THE COMMENTS HE MADE ABOUT THE
IMPEACHMENT TRIAL. OTHER PEOPLE ARE SAYING THEY LIKE THE WAY
SHE PANELS HERSELF AS A SENATOR. SHE HAS BEEN DOING HER JOB AND
CAMPAIGNING AT THE SAME TIME. ALSO HERE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE THERE
ARE A LOT OF UNDECIDED VOTERS. WE MET PEOPLE WALKING IN NOT
QUITE SURE WHAT CANDIDATE THEY WOULD FOR. THEY DECIDED TO GO
HER WAY. THEY SAID IT WAS BECAUSE SHE IS APPEALING. NEW
HAMPSHIRE HAS A VERY HIGH NUMBER OF UNDECIDED VOTERS. HIGHER THAN
THE NATIONAL AVERAGE. IN LOT OF PEOPLE ARE FOLLOWING HER BECAUSE
THEY ARE FATIGUED AT THE FRONT RUNNERS WE HAVE SEEN BEFORE.
LET’S LISTEN TOMORROW THAT WE HAVE HEARD FROM PULLING
SITES TODAY. >>MY VOTE WILL GO TO JOE BIDEN,
BUT I JUST DO NOT KNOW. I HAVE BEEN GOING TO SO MANY PEOPLE
HERE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE PICK GOING BACK AND FORTH.
>>WE MUST UNITE. THE WAY THAT WE UNITE IS HAVING AN OPTIMISTIC
IN MY ECONOMIC AGENDA FOR AMERICA.
>>IN THE VERY LAST DEBATE THAT DEMOCRATS HAD LAST WEEK THIS
PAST WEEK I VOTED FOR AMY. I THOUGHT SHE HAD A
VERY STRONG OUTING AND I THOUGHT SHE WAS PASSIONATE AND I DID NOT SORT OF
HAVE HER ON MY RADAR, BUT I REALLY LIKED WHAT SHE HAD TO
SAY. >>WE HAPPEN TO BE ABLE TO MAKE
THE CASE FOR THE WORKING PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY SOME OF THEM
VOTED FOR DONALD TRUMP THAT WE HAVE SOMETHING BETTER TO OFFER.
>>I AM LEANING TOWARDS AMY. I HAVE SEEN HER OVER YEARS WITH
DOING DIFFERENT INVESTIGATIONS AND JUST HER CONFIDENCE AND HER KNOWLEDGE
OF THE GOVERNMENT AND HOW TO HANDLE PEOPLE AND SO THAT IS
WHAT MADE ME ASKED ME LEAN TOWARDS HER AND ALSO SHE IS FROM
THE MIDWEST AND I THINK THAT WOULD BE GOOD FOR THE COUNTRY.
>>AMY KLOBUCHAR DID WIN THE
MIDNIGHT VOTE HERE WHEN ASPHERIC — A FEW SMALL VILLAGES VOTED
EARLY. SHE WON THE VOTE. ONLY BY 8 VOTES, BUT SHE WON. WE ARE
HERE AT HER PARTY IN THE ROOM IS FILLING UP BEHIND ME A LITTLE
BIT. WE WILL BE HERE TO SEE HOW THE NIGHT GOES FOR AMY
KLOBUCHAR. >> GREAT. THANKS. LET’S GO NOW
TO THE POST. HANNAH IS LIVE WITH THE WAR AND CAMPAIGN HERE IN
MANCHESTER. GOOD EVENING. ELIZABETH WARREN HAS SLIPPED IN
RECENT MONTHS — WHAT HAS HAPPENED?
>>THAT IS RIGHT. AS A SENATOR FROM
A NEIGHBORING STATE HE WAS EXPECTED TO DO WELL IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE AND BACK IN OCTOBER SHE WAS LEADING THE POLLS FOR A
TIME. SINCE THEN SHE HAS FALLEN WELL BEHIND SANDERS IN PETE
BUTTIGIEG, AS WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT . THE THEME OF THE
NIGHT. ARE CAMP HAS SAID THEY RELEASED A MEMO TODAY STRESSING
THE FACT THAT SHE HAS — DOWNPLAY NEW HAMPSHIRE SAYING
THE CAMPAIGN IS BUILT TO LAST THROUGH SUPER TUESDAY AND THEY
HAVE DETAILED THEIR PATH TO THE DELICATELY AND ON THE NUMBERS TO
PROVE THE POINT THAT WHATEVER HAPPENED TONIGHT IS NOT THE END
OF THE ROAD FOR HER. HER SUPPORTERS REMAIN VERY HOPEFUL
HE SPOKE TO SOME OF THEM AT AN EVENT IN CONCORD THIS WEEKEND.
LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THAT.>>I THINK SHE — PEOPLE WHO ARE
HORRIFIED WATER GOING ON IN THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION. I THINK
SHE IS TRUSTWORTHY AND SHE HAS BASIC MORAL ETHICS THAT WE
REALLY CAN BELIEVE IN.
>>SHE HAS DECADES OF EXPERIENCE. IT’S TOUGH NOT TO
LOVE HER. >>THEY HAVE GOOD BOOTS ON THE
GROUND CAMPAIGN. THE WARREN CAMPAIGN HAS GREAT , HARD WORK.
>>MY WIFE AND I ARE TEACHERS AND TO BE KIND AND THOUGHTFUL
AND CREATIVE AND HONEST TO BE A GREAT TEACHER. I THINK THOSE ARE
THINGS THAT ARE ALREADY ATTRACTIVE TO ME ABOUT HER AS A
CANDIDATE BEWKES PUMA GRAMMY SPECIAL EDUCATOR AS WELL. I AM
READY FOR A FEMALE PRESIDENT. I THINK THE COUNTRY IS READY.
LET’S DO IT. >>I JUST THINK WOMEN ARE MORE
DIPLOMATIC THAN MEN AND WE HAVE BUSTED UP FOR A LONG TIME.
>>I WILL SUPPORT ANY DEMOCRAT. I JUST HAVE TO GET TRUMP OUT OF
THERE.>>WE ARE ALL IN IT. WE ARE
GOING TO UNIFY AND DO WHAT WE HAVE TO DO.
>>PEOPLE ARE STRESSING THEY THINK
ELIZABETH WARREN IS THE BEST CANDIDATE TO BE TRUMP, BUT THEY
WILL SAY THAT THEY WILL VOTE FOR WHOEVER THE NOMINEE WILL BE. THE
CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN STRESSING RECENTLY THAT ONE CAN BE A UNITY CANDIDATE. SOMETHING I
HAVE HEARD FROM HER SUPPORTERS ALSO — A LITTLE BIT
OF FRUSTRATION THAT THEY THINK HER STORYLINE OUT OF I WILL GOT
OVERLOOKED BY DISSENTERS IN PETE BUTTIGIEG STORE, BUT ALSO BY THE
GENERAL CHAOS THAT WAS EVERYTHING WE TALKED ABOUT
COMING OUT OF IOWA. WE WILL SEE IF THAT NARRATIVE GETS MORE
ATTENTION TONIGHT AND IF ANYTHING IS DIFFERENT AFTER
TONIGHT. BACK TO YOU FOR NOW, LIBBY.
>> GREAT. THANKS SO MUCH. IT IS
INTERESTING TO HEAR THE VOTERS TALK ABOUT NOT JUST WHAT THESE
PEOPLE WOULD DO IN OFFICE, BUT SOME OF THE CHARACTERISTICS AND
ALSO JUST THE KINDNESS. BEING A GOOD PERSON — WE ARE SEEING AMY
TRIED TO MAKE A CLOSING MESSAGE HERE OF EMPATHY. HER AT WAS ALL THAT
EMPATHY IN HER CLOSING ARGUMENT AT THE DEBATE THE OTHER DAY — I
WANTED TO REFLECT ON THIS APPEAL THAT THE CANDIDATES ARE MAKING
FOR JUDGMENT EMPATHY AND BASIC CHARACTER.
>>I THINK THESE CANDIDATES RECOGNIZE THAT THEIR VOTERS ARE
NOT THERE LIKE THE PEOPLE I TALKED TO THIS WEEK TO SAY I
VOTED FOR TRUMP, BUT I AM SICK OF HIS BRASHNESS. I TALKED TO
ONE VOTER WHO SWITCHER REGISTRATION AND WAS AT A JOE
BIDEN EVENT LAST NIGHT TO VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS. IS NOT WHAT I
WANT THE PUBLIC AND PARTY TO BE. THAT WAS A SILENT PART OF THE
REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT YOU DO NOT HEAR ABOUT IN OUR DAILY NEWS
COVERAGE. IS AND A LOT OF THE CANDIDATES SAYING I CAN SPEAK TO YOU. I UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU ARE GOING
THROUGH. AMY KLOBUCHAR SAID IN HER CLOSING STATEMENT COMPARING
HER UPBRINGING OF HER GRANDPA RAISING HER DAD’S COLLEGE FUND
BY PUTTING MONEY IN A COFFEE TENDON AND SAYING I GET YOUR
STRUGGLES IN THE WAYS THAT DONALD TRUMP DOESN’T. I THINK TO
SOME EXTENT THEY ARE ALSO TRYING TO DISPLAY
THEIR GENDER WITHOUT BEING OVERT ABOUT IT BY SAYING I CAN HEAR
YOU. I CAN LISTEN TO YOU IN A WAY THAT MEN IN PARTICULAR MY
STRUGGLE WITH. >>ELIZABETH WARREN WAS THE
THINKING OF THAT LAST YEAR AND THEY WORK FOR HER FOR A TIME.
SHE ENDED UP SORT OF RISING TO THE TOP OF THE POLLS RIGHT AS
MEDICARE FOR ALL SORT OF ENDED UP KILLING HER MORE THAN
ANYTHING ELSE. WHAT IS AMAZING IS WHEN YOU TALK
TO THE VOTERS THEY ARE NOT — EVENLY ONCE A PERSON IS
SUPPORTING HER BECAUSE OF THE PLANS TEMPERAMENT IS A WORD THAT
COMES UP CONSTANTLY AND THERE IS THAT — WE HEARD A FEW MINUTES
AGO FROM ONE OF THOSE PACKAGES ONCE AND I WANT TO BE ABLE TO
NOT HAVE TO TURN ON CABLE NEWS EVERY NIGHT. ERROR THAT
CONSTANTLY FROM LIBERALS AND MODERATES WHO SAID I WANT TO BE
ABLE TO TURN ON THE TV NEWS — SHE SAID I WANT TO HAVE THE TV
ON IN THE PRESIDENT TALKING AND I’M NOT WORRIED HE OR SHE IS
GOING TO USE PROFANITY. THE OTHER THING TO REMEMBER NEW
HAMPSHIRE ONLINE IOWA IS IT IS AN OPEN PRIMARY. IT IS IMPORTANT
BECAUSE IT CHANGES THE DYNAMIC IN THE PEOPLE WHO ARE VOTING. IN
IOWA IT IS PEOPLE WHO ARE COMMITTED DEMOCRATS. HERE IF YOU
ARE AN AFFILIATED, WHICH IS THE WORD FOR INDEPENDENT, WHICH IS
THE BIGGEST VOTING BLOC IN NEW HAMPSHIRE YOU ARE ALLOWED TO
TAKE A POET AND NEITHER WERE THE REPUBLICAN OR RUBBLE CAN PRIMARY
BE BECAUSE HE DOES NOT FACE REAL CREDIBLE PRIMARY CHILD THERE ARE
A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO PROBABLY MAY HAVE VOTED — A LOT OF PEOPLE
OUT OF 4 OTHERS IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY 4 YEARS AGO
AND THEY CONSIDER THEMSELVES INDEPENDENT. NOW THEY WILL CAST
SPELLS TO THE PRIMARY AND THAT WORKS TO THE ADVANTAGE OF
SOMEONE LIKE THEM THAT — THE LAST COUPLE DAYS YOU HEARD THEM
COMPARED TO IOWA — YESTERDAY YOU HEARD THEM TALK ABOUT HOW
IMPORTANT THE DEFICIT IS AND THAT IS A NOD TO THOSE MODERATE
CONSERVATIVE PEOPLE THAT WERE NOT TALKING ABOUT THE DEFICIT IN
IOWA BECAUSE THE ELECTORATE IS DIFFERENT AND THAT DOES CHANGE HOW — AND LOTS OF LIBERALS WHO
ARE KIND OF ALWAYS VOTING DEMOCRAT.
>>THEY HAVE IF WAS HERE IN THIS
MOMENT. THAT THERE IS ABOUT DOUBLE THE UNAFFILIATED
REGISTERED VOTERS BUT THEY ARE NOT REGISTERED AS THERE WERE
DEMOCRATS AND PUBLICANS BECAUSE I STUCK AROUND THE JOINT 50,000
MARKET THERE IS A 430,000 UNDECLARED VOTERS, WHICH FITS
WITH THIS NEW HAMPSHIRE NEW ENGLAND KIND OF INDEPENDENT STREAK. THIS IS
STILL LARGELY WHITE PRIMARY. THERE IS GROWING
ANXIETY. EVER 4 YEARS, BUT THIS TIME I REALLY FEEL IT WELLING UP
IN THE DEMOCRATIC — THIS IS NOT THE STATE HE
REPRESENTS THE PARTY. THEY ARE TRYING TO CONTINUE TO BE.
>>MANY OF THE POLLS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE HAVE CLOSED, BUT THERE
ARE STILL SOME LOVE TO WRAP UP WITHIN THIS OUR. LET’S GO NOW TO
JEREMY FOR ELECTION INSIGHT TEAM FOR THE LATEST. WHAT ARE THE 1st
RESULTS TELLING US THIS EVENING?>>I’M SO EXCITED TO TALK TO
ABOUT THIS TONIGHT. I HAVE HAD A WHOLE CUP OF STRONG TEA AND I
HAVE SOMETHING TO SHOW YOU ON OUR BOARD. LET’S TAKE A LOOK
HERE. IN THE EARLY RESULTS WE ARE SEEING A STRONG SHOWING FOR
BERNIE SANDERS. A QUICK REMINDER. SANDERS IS HERE IN THE
PURPLE. WE HAVE PETE BUTTIGIEG AND GREEN. WHAT WE SEE EARLY ON
IS THAT BERNIE SANDERS IS DOING WELL ALTHOUGH THAT IS NOT TOO
SURPRISING. THE THING THAT WE THINK IS PRETTY SURPRISING ABOUT
THESE RESULTS TONIGHT IS WE ARE SEEING PG DOING WELL IN A COUPLE OF
PLACES EVEN AT THE COUNTY LEVEL. WITH ONLY ABOUT 20% OF THE VOTES
REPORTING HERE IN CARROLL COUNTY WE ARE SEEING HIM WITH 26% OF
THE VOTE. WILMS 22% OF THE VOTE IN BERNIE SANDERS DOWN HERE AT
JUST 22%. A LITTLE BIT SHOCKS ME. ONE OF THE WAS WILL KEEP ON
SOME OF THE LIGHTLY POPULATED AREAS THAT WILL HAVE KIND OF
INTERESTING RESULTS. THE REAL QUESTION ABOUT THOSE LIGHTLY
POPULATED AREAS IS WHERE THOSE WERE THE RESULTS WE GOT INTERESTING AT ALL? FOR LITTLE
MORE ON THAT WE WILL KICK IT OVER TO LENNY. THE SENIOR DAY
SCIENTIST ON ELECTION INSIGHT TEAM. OF THESE REPRESENTATIVE —
CAN WE MAKE ANY DECISIONS BASED ON THEM?
>>AS WE GET MORE WILL BRING IT TO
YOU. NOW WE WILL KICK IT BACK TO LIBBY ON THE GROUND IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE. >>GREAT. THANK YOU. LET’S CHECK
BACK IN NOW WITH JOYCE .
>>LEE HARRIS OF THE NEW HAMPSHIRE UNIVERSITY. A SMALL
PRIVATE COLLEGE RIGHT OUTSIDE OF MANCHESTER AND IT’S A LITTLE
PAST 7:30 NOW TO THE GROUND BEHIND ME HAS STARTED TO FILL
OUT A LITTLE BIT. THEY WERE ALLOWED IN AT 7:30 SO WE ARE
SEEING PEOPLE START TO TRICKLE IN THIS ATHLETIC COMPLEX WE ARE
INTO BERNIE SANDERS CAMPAIGNS AND FEELING REALLY CONFIDENT
GOING INTO THE NIGHT IN REGARDS TO NUMBERS. OVER THE WEEKEND A
NATIONAL POLL CAME OUT –‘S CAMPAIGNS AND ALSO
NUMBERS LAST NIGHT . MAKING IT THE LARGEST SHOWING
OF ATTENDEES AT ANY CAMPAIGN EVENT OF ANY CANDIDATE IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE. ANOTHER NUMBER THAT THE CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN THROWING
THE LOT IS 150,000 THAT IS A NUMBER OF LOTS OF VOLUNTEERS
HAVE MADE ACROSS THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE AS OF SATURDAY AND
THAT IS A NUMBER THAT BERNIE SANDERS WAS MENTIONING ABOUT
HIMSELF AT CAMPAIGN EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND. TONIGHT
WE ARE EXPECT TO HEAR FROM SURROGATES AS WELL AS SENATOR SANDERS HIMSELF ONCE THE RESULTS
COME OUT HERE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND OF COURSE WE WILL BRING YOU
UPDATES FROM HIS CAMPAIGN WATCH PARTY AS WE GET THEM.
>>GREAT. THANK YOU SO MUCH. LET’S CHECK BACK IN NOW WITH OUR
COLLEAGUES WITH THE PETE BUTTIGIEG CAMPAIGN.
>>WE ARE HERE AND I AM JOINED NOW BY CHELSEA. YOU HAVE BEEN
COVERING HIM AND SINCE MID DECEMBER, RIGHT? LET’S TALK A
LITTLE BIT ABOUT HOW — AND YOU CAN SEE THE CROWD BEHIND US
FILLING OUT. LIKE HOW HAS THE MOOD AND THE VIBE CHANGE IN THE
CAMPAIGN SINCE HE STARTED COVERING IT?
>>I THINK IN JANUARY THEY REALLY STARTED TO SAY WE MAY
HAVE A SHOT AT IOWA. THEY REALLY SHOW THEIR CROWD GROWING. THEIR DEMEANOR
STARTED TO CHANGE. PETE BUTTIGIEG HIMSELF GOT A LITTLE
MORE ENERGETIC. I THINK THAT SORT OF CONTINUED INTO THE 1st
WEEK IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. WE ARE HAVING A SENSE THEY ARE
LITTLE CONCERNED THAT AMY KLOBUCHAR MAY BE CATCHING UP TO
THEM IN THE LAST FEW HOURS, BUT WE WILL SEE THAT THERE IS ALL IN
THE RESULTS. I JUST TALKED TO ONE OF THEIR STAFFERS WHO SAID
SOMETIMES WE CAN’T BELIEVE WE ARE HERE. THERE IS DEFINITELY A
LITTLE BIT OF AN UNDERDOG MENTALITY, SO STILL PERMEATING.
>>IT IS STILL EARLY, SO WE ARE NOT SARAH. LET’S SAY HE COMES
IN 2nd OR 3rd TODAY. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR HIM GOING FORWARD
WITH SANDERS WINNING TONIGHT?>>I THINK A 2nd PLACE FINISH
SOLIDIFIES HIM AS THE CURRENT MODERATE FRONT RUNNER. SORT OF
THE COUNTERPUNCH TO BERNIE, BUT AS WE HAVE SEEN MICHAEL
BLOOMBERG RISE AND FALL OUTSIDE OF THE EARLIEST DAYS. WE KNOW
JOE BIDEN IS SORT OF STRUGGLING. HE HAS MENTIONED A LONGER TRACK RECORD IN NAME RECOGNITION
AND AMY KLOBUCHAR IS MAKING A PUSH. BEING THE TOP DOG IN A
RACE IS VERY CLOSE IN ANYTHING OUTSIDE OF THE TOP 3 WOULD BE A
REAL SHOCK AND PRETTY DEVASTATING FOR THEM, BUT I
THINK THEY FEEL PRETTY CONFIDENT THEY WILL HAVE A DECENT NIGHT
HERE AND THEN IT IS ABOUT IMPROVING IT — PROVING THEY CAN
WIN MORE DIVERSE STATES LIKE NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA.
STINKY MENTIONED JOE BIDEN. WAS TALK ABOUT HIM. WHAT DID HIS
STUMBLING TONIGHT AND IN IOWA — WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR PETE
BUTTIGIEG GOING FORWARD? >>FOR A WHILE VICTORY IN IOWA
FOR THE PETE BUTTIGIEG CAMPAIGN WAS BEATING JOE BIDEN. ADMIT
THEY WERE THE STRONGER MODERATE. THE ONE YOU CAN THROW UP AGAINST
BERNIE SANDERS AND SAY HERE IS YOUR CHOICE. DO DO THAT AGAIN
HERE WOULD FURTHER THAT POINT. I THINK AS AMY SHOWED SHE HAS GOT
THE STRENGTH — FOR THOSE PEOPLE BEATING JOE BIDEN IS A GOOD
THING AND SO FAR THAT IS WHAT HAS HAPPENED.
>>THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. BACK TO YOU IN MANCHESTER.
>>THANK YOU SO MUCH. THIS QUESTION OF WHERE THE VOTERS ARE
MOVING TOWARDS AND THE MOMENTUM IS SO IMPORTANT. AMY IS IN NAME
WE HAVE BEEN HEARING A LOT OF. WHAT HAS MADE THE DIFFERENCE?
WHY IS SHE SHORT OF TRENDING? SHE SAID STRONG PERFORMANCES IN THE PAST .
>>I THINK THERE IS A DESIRE TO HAVE A MODERATE CANDIDATE. I
THINK THERE IS A DESIRE THAT THE MAJORITY OF NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTERS
DO NOT WANT BERNIE SANDERS TO BE THE NOMINEE. MANY PEOPLE THOUGHT
THEY WOULD HAVE TO SETTLE FOR JOE BIDEN. ONCE HE
UNDERPERFORMED IN IOWA THEY REALIZED HE WAS NOT THE GUY. ALL
OF A SUDDEN I THINK OF THE ATTACK ON PETE BUTTIGIEG OF HE
IS A 38-YEAR-OLD FORMER MAYOR OF THE 4th BIGGEST CITY IN INDIANA
RESONATED. AMY KLOBUCHAR CAN BARELY HIDE HER AUTHENTIC
PERSONAL DISLIKE FOR HIM. SHE SAID PUBLICLY THAT IF HE HAD
EVERYTHING ABOUT — THEY WILL>>I THINK THOSE HITS — HE WOULD
HAVE THE MOST NEGATIVE KIND OF DEMOCRATIC OUT OF THE CAMP AND
SO FAR AGAINST ANOTHER DEMOCRAT ATTACKING PETE BUTTIGIEG. JUST
OPPOSING SAY HE WAS NEGOTIATING THE IRAN
DEAL. PETE BUTTIGIEG WAS INSTALLING DECORATIVE LIGHTING
IN THE DOWNTOWN OF SOUTH AND. UNDER TRYING TO DIMINISH HIS
EXPERIENCE. I THINK THE HITS ON HIM AFTER HIS UNEXPECTED WIN IN IOWA HE SERVED IN I THINK
ALL OF A SUDDEN PEOPLE SAY IF I’M NOT GOING TO GO TO HIM OR
JOE BIDEN WARREN IS MAY BE TOO LIBERAL. WHO AM I GOING TO GO
TO? AMY KLOBUCHAR WAS THERE AND SHE HAD THE PERFORMANCES BEFORE
STARTING TO PAY ATTENTION. SHE HAS A GOOD FIT IN MANY WAYS FOR
THIS ESTATE. I THINK THAT IS HELPING. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT
HAS BEEN INTERESTING JUST AS THOSE FEW REPORTS — ARE THAT I
SPEND SOME TIME DOING REPORTING ON THE FIELD OPERATION THAT THE
CANDIDATES WERE DOING AND TO THE SANDERS CAMPAIGN IT HAS BEEN
FOCUSED ON MOBILIZATION. I STOOD AFTER ONE OF SANDERS RALLIES AND
WASHED ONE OF THEIR STAFFERS TALK TO 3 DOZEN VOLUNTEERS AND
HE SAID AT THIS POINT WE ARE NOT TRYING TO PERSUADE PEOPLE TO
SUPPORT BERNIE SANDERS. WE ARE JUST TRYING TO GET PEOPLE. PETE
BUTTIGIEG AMY KLOBUCHAR DOES NOT HAVE THE LUXURY. BERNIE SANDERS
HAS BEEN ORGANIZING HERE FOR A YEAR. I HAVE SORT OF WATCHED
THE DOOR KNOCKERS AND THERE WERE A LOT OF THEM OUT AND ABOUT THIS
WEEKEND. FOR THEM IT WAS ALL PERSUASION. THERE WAS KIND
OF A VERY DIFFERENT APPROACH. DOES HE GET THOSE PEOPLE TO SHOW
UP WHO MAY BE DID NOT EVEN VOTE FOR HIM IN 2016?
>>THERE IS A QUESTION OF WHEN A CANDIDATE PEAKS A LITTLE BIT HOW
THEY TAKE THE HEADS UP. WE SAW HER DOING THAT AND SHE HAD BEEN
DOING THAT THROUGHOUT, BUT SHE WAS KNOCKING COMMENTS HE MADE
ABOUT WATCHING THE SENATORS BACK IN WASHINGTON AND SHE MADE THIS
REFERENCE TO CARTOONS. IT WAS ACTUALLY A QUOTE TAKEN OUT OF
CONTEXT. SHE WAS AND DON’T WATCH CARTOONS BUT WHAT WHAT IS
HAPPENING IN WASHINGTON BUT SHE MADE IT SOUND LIKE A CHILDLIKE
PERSON AND THERE IS A QUESTION OF HOW YOU RESPONDED TO THE HEAD
AND ARE YOU READY FOR THEM? >>WHICH HE DID NOT DO IN THAT
PARTICULAR INSTANCE. HE COULD HAVE PUSHED BACK AND SAID HE TOOK ME OUT OF
CONTEXT. HE KNEW VERY WELL WHAT HE SAID, BUT HE DID APPEAR GOING
INTO THIS NEW HAMPSHIRE BAIT A FEW DAYS LATER HE WAS PREPARED
TO GET WHACKED BY EVERYBODY. WHEN SHE SAW THAT UNDER THE
DEBATES WHEN HE WAS RISING IN THE POLLS THE VERY LEAST — ON
THE LIKE FOR PETE BUTTIGIEG LET ME SAY I DID NOT SEE HIM TAKE
THIS DEBATE AND TRIED TO WRESTLE AMY KLOBUCHAR AND PUT BACK ON
THIS BECAUSE IS AWESOME IT WAS A LOWER PULLING CANDIDATE APPEAR
WHY AM I GOING TO ENGAGE WITH THAT? JOE BIDEN AND SANDERS WERE
FIGHTING AGAINST EACH OTHER. SHE WAS DOING HER OWN THING TRY NOT
TO ATTACK ANYONE ELSE. I THOUGHT PETE BUTTIGIEG SKATED BY A
LITTLE BIT ON THAT EXCEPT FOR AMY KLOBUCHAR —
>>AND THEN THERE IS THE QUESTION OF — AND WE WILL TALK
ABOUT THAT AS THE NIGHT GOES ON. DEPENDING HOW SHE DOES TONIGHT
IT MAY BE A VERY DIFFERENT ATTACK STRATEGY FOR THE
CANDIDATES. I WANT TO GO BACK TO RHONDA IN CONCORD WITH THE AMY
KLOBUCHAR CAMPAIGN AND TO CHECK IN WITH HER TO SEE HOW THINGS
ARE GOING. >>THAT IS RIGHT. TIME WITH OUR
COLLEAGUE WHO HAS BEEN COVERING THE AMY KLOBUCHAR CAMPAIGN FOR A
WHILE. TELL ME ABOUT THE EVOLUTION BE GIVEN COVERING HER
SINCE THE FALL. THE ILLUSION FROM THEN VERSUS NOW IN THE
MOMENTUM SHE HAS BEEN GAINING . >>I THINK FOR THE LAST FEW
MONTHS HER STAFF AND HER SUPPORTERS AND HER HAVE JUST
BEEN FRUSTRATED THAT SHE HAS NOT BEEN DOING BETTER. THEY FEEL
LIKE SHE HAS SORT OF A MESSAGE BACK AND RESONATE GIVEN WHAT IS
HAPPENING IN THE COUNTRY RIGHT NOW AND SHE WOULD HAVE THESE
GREAT DEBATE PERFORMANCES OR MOMENTS AND THEY WOULD WAIT FOR
HER PULLING TO GO UP OR WAIT FOR THE MONEY TO COME IN AND IT WAS
NOT QUITE HAPPENING UNTIL FRIDAY NIGHT. SHE WAS HERE IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE AND SHE HAD JUST COME OFF OF NOT DOING SO GREAT IN THE
IOWA CAUCUSES EVEN THOUGH IOWA IS JUST SOUTH OF HER HOME STATE
OF MINNESOTA. SHE WAS ON THE TODAY’S STAGE HERE IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE FRIDAY NIGHT AND SHE HAD A GREAT PERFORMANCE. THINGS
SEEM TO COOK FOR HER. SHE WAS CONTRASTING HERSELF WITH THE
OTHER CANDIDATES ON THE STAGE. EVEN BEFORE SHE GOT
OFF THE THE BASE STAGE THERE WAS JUST MONEY FLOWING IN. OR
CAMPAIGN RAISED OVER $3 MILLION THIS WEEKEND. YOU COULD JUST SEE
THE ENERGY BUILDING AROUND HER CANDIDACY. I FOLLOWED HER
THROUGH THE STATE OVER THE WEEKEND AND YOU COULD JUST SEE
THE CROWDS BUILDING. YOU COULD SEE HER CONFIDENCE BUILDING IN
HER EXCITEMENT BUILDING. THIS IS A STAY WHERE SHE FOUND HER GROOVE. ALL OF HER JOKES WERE LANDING
WILL COOK SOMETHING THAT WOULD NOT ALWAYS HAPPEN BEFORE NOW.
THERE IS A LOT OF EXCITEMENT AMONG HER SUPPORTERS. AS THEY
ARE WAITING FOR THESE RESULTS. THEY ARE REALLY HOPING THAT SHE
IS GOING TO DO WELL TONIGHT.>>A LOT OF VOTERS HAVE SAID I
ALWAYS LIKED HER, BUT I DO NOT THINK SHE HAD A CHANCE SO I
DIDN’T PLAN ON VOTING FOR. NOW THAT I THINK SHE HAS A CHANCE
I’M GOING TO VOTE FOR HER. WE ARE IN A WEIRD CYCLE WHERE A LOT
OF VOTERS ARE KIND OF BASING WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO ON
WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DO AND LIKE — YOU KNOW — THAT
CAN KIND OF THAT FOR ANYONE. I HEAR FROM SO MANY DEMOCRATS IT
DOES NOT MATTER WHO THE DEMOCRAT IS. IOWA VOTER FOR THEM, BUT YOU
TELL ME. WHAT DO WE NEED ON THAT TICKET TO BEAT DONALD TRUMP? A LOT OF VOTERS HERE IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE HAVE BEEN SAYING THEY THINK IT COULD BE SOMEONE LIKE
AMY KLOBUCHAR. SOMEONE WHO IS A BIT MORE MODERATE AND HER
CHANCES. WHO COULD PERHAPS APPEAL TO THE MIDWEST VOTERS IN
PLACES THAT SLIP FROM VOTING FOR TRUMP OR OBAMA TO TRUMP, SO WE
WILL SEE. AT THE SAME TIME YOU TALK WITH VOTERS WHO SAID IT IS
NOT WHAT THEY THINK. WE WILL GET PEOPLE EXCITED IN THE FALL THAT INSTEAD DEMOCRATS NEED
SOMEONE WHO CAN BUILD IN MOVEMENT. WHO CAN EXCITE YOUNG
VOTERS. WHO CAN ENGAGE WITH AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTERS AND
LATINO VOTERS. 2 GROUPS THAT WE HAVE NOT SEEN THE SENATOR REALLY
CONNECT WITH YET. SPENT RIGHT. THANK YOU VERY
MUCH, AND WE ARE ACTUALLY NEXT TO EACH OTHER, SO WE WILL BE
HERE ALL NIGHT. THE ROOM HAS BEEN FILLING UP A LITTLE BIT
MORE, SO WE WILL HAVE MORE FOR YOU LATER ON.
>>THANK YOU SO MUCH. LET’S TALK ABOUT AMY KLOBUCHAR AND HOW SHE
COULD COME UNDER MORE SCRUTINY AND ATTACK FROM HER OPPONENTS
DEPENDING ON HOW SHE DOES TONIGHT.
>>TO GET ON THE QUESTION OF WHY ARE YOU EVEN TALKING ABOUT HER.
OR CAMPAIGN TODAY TOLD ME THEY FELT LIKE THAT THE DATE ON FRIDAY —
PARTICULAR CLOSING ARGUMENTS — A KEEPER FROM BACK TO THE VISUAL
OF THE COFFEE TIN THAT HER GRANDPA WAS PUTTING MONEY IN FOR
HER DAD’S COLLEGE. HELPING CRYSTALLIZED THIS MOMENTUM THAT
SHE WAS FEELING. THE DOOR KNOCKERS TOLD ME THEY WERE
SPENDING ALL OF THE TIME IN THE STATE FOR HER. SHE HAS ABOUT 50
STAFF YOUR. PEOPLE WHICH IS SHE IS IN MY TOP 2 OR 3 AND THEN YOU
HEARD HER SAY SLOWLY AFTER SEEING ME BE THE JOE BIDEN —
THEY MAY HAVE FALTERED IN IOWA. MAYBE I WILL VOTE FOR AMY
KLOBUCHAR. THEY STAYED UP LATE FOR THE DEBATE OR MAYBE IT
CIRCULATED ON THE INTERNET THE NEXT DAY BECAUSE HER CLOSING
ARGUMENTS HAPPENED ON A FRIDAY NIGHT AT LIKE 11 PM. ALL OF A
SUDDEN THE DOOR KNOCKERS TOLD ME THAT THEY — ERIC HAMILTON SIR
SAID AMY KLOBUCHAR IS THE NUMBER 1 PERSON TO VOTE FOR. THAT IS
ALL WE KNOW THOUGH ABOUT HER ON THIS NATIONAL LEVEL TO YOUR
ORIGINAL QUESTION I SEE HIM WANTING TO — YOU KNOW. SHE HAS
NOT GOT A LOT OF TO — ATTENTION IN THE DEBATES. I DO NOT THINK JOE BIDEN HAS
EVER MENTIONED HER NAME. SHE SPENT A BUNCH OF TIME IN THE
IMPEACHMENT TRIAL AND NOT ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL TALKING TO VOTERS
IN A WAY THAT HE COULD HAVE MEDIA ASKING HER MORE QUESTIONS.
I DO NOT KNOW IF SHE IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO COMPETE IN SOUTH
CAROLINA WHERE IT JUST LOOKS MORE AND MORE LIKE THE TYPICAL
DEMOCRATIC VOTER NEVADA CAUCUSES ARE REALLY TRICKY TO NAVIGATE ON
THIS CLOSE OF A TIME TO JUST SWITCH AND SAY I NEED ALL OF
THESE SUPPORTERS TO BE AS DEDICATED AS YOU WERE IN IOWA
AND SPENT THE WHOLE SATURDAY VOTING FOR ME. WE KEEP HEARING THAT DEMOCRATS
ARE ASKING WHO IS THE MOST ELECTABLE. IT’S LIKE EVERYBODY
ELSE LIKE THAT PERSON AND MAYBE THERE IS SOMETHING THERE TOO.
HOW YOU DO TONIGHT COULD REALLY INFLUENCE THE VOTERS IN NEVADA
AND SOUTH CAROLINA. >>ABSOLUTELY. AMY KLOBUCHAR
HAVE THE ROUGHEST ROLLOUT OF ANY CANDIDATE IN THE ENTIRE RACE
ECONOMIC — MISFORTUNE SHE HAD A BLIZZARD IN MINNESOTA AND IT
MADE FOR GREAT TV, BUT — >>AS A PART OF HER ROLE OF THERE
WERE TONS OF STORIES — HALF A DOZEN STORIES ABOUT THE WAY SHE
TREATS HER STAFF. SHE NOTORIOUSLY IS BACK TO HER STAFF
ON CAPITOL HILL. THERE WERE STORIES ABOUT HER USING A COMB
TO EAT A SALAD OR WHATEVER BECAUSE WERE VERY NEGATIVE
STRESS BUT SHE DOES NOT MEET — FACEMASK ANY SENSE BECAUSE SHE
WAS NOT AT THE TOP OF THE POLLS. THERE HAVE BEEN SOME STORIES
ABOUT HER TENURE AS THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY AND THE PROSECUTOR FOR
THE LARGE COUNTY IN MINNESOTA, WHICH IS WHAT INCLUDED
MINNEAPOLIS PROSECUTE AFRICAN-AMERICANS — HIM GOT HIT
PRETTY HARD FOR THAT WHEN SHE WAS IN THE RACE OR HER RECORD. I
SAW HER YESTERDAY AND SHE IS LOVING THIS. SHE IS JUST SOMEONE
WHO LOVES POLITICS. SHE LIKES TO BE OUT THERE. SHE HAS BEEN TOILING AROUND
RURAL IOWA. SHE IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE IN THE RACE HE WENT
ALL 99 COUNTIES IN IOWA AND SHE HAS SPOKEN TO A LOT OF VERY
SMALL EVENTS, BUT SHE HAS GIVEN AN HOUR-LONG BACK-AND-FORTH TO
THEM. ALL OF A SUDDEN YESTERDAY THEY SHOWED UP TO SEE HER. THERE
WAS AN OVERFLOW. PEOPLE CANNOT GET INTO THE OLD TOWN HALL. THEY
HAD AN OVERFLOW ROOM AND SHE LOVED IT. IT WAS GETTING THE
FEET OF WHAT SHE WAS SAYING AND SHE WOULD KIND OF SAY I’M GOING
TO SAY THE BEST PART OF THE STORY. >>THERE IS A QUESTION ABOUT
WHETHER THE VOTERS CANDIDATE DOES NOT TRIUMPH WILL BE SUPPORT
THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE? WE ARE HEARING A LOT OF REPORTERS
SAYING YES I WILL, BUT THERE IS A REAL QUESTION THAT BERNIE SANDERS WOULD JUMP
ON BOARD WITH WHATEVER DEMOCRAT WINS IF IT IS NOT SANDERS. WE
SAW HAGGLING OVER THE WEEKEND. AT THE CANDIDATES WERE ALL
TAKING TURNS AND SPEAKING. AMY WAS ABLE TO DISPATCH WITH IT IN
A WAY WITH HUMOR AND ALSO DID NOT MAKE A BIGGER DEAL OUT OF
IT.. OUR EXIT POLL SHOWS ONLY 75% OF SANDERS’S SUPPORTERS
SAYING THEY WOULD DEFTLY SUPPORT THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE IF YOU
EXCLUDE THE SANDERS SUPPORTERS IT WAS ABOUT 90% OVERALL. ON SATURDAY THEY ALL SPOKE WHEN
PETE BUTTIGIEG SPOKE — SOMEONE — THEY STARTED TO GATHER — SHE
HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR. SHE SAID HELLO, BERNIE PEOPLE. THE
SANDERS PEOPLE KIND OF EVEN LAUGHED.
>>IT’S SOMETHING THAT THE VOTERS ARE ASKING. CAN THEY
BRING OTHER DEMOCRATIC SUPPORT ALONG WITH THEM? THANK YOU.
STICK WITH US. WE ARE APPROACHING THE TOP OF THE HOUR
WITH MORE RESULTS OF COURSE TO COME AS THE VOTE COUNT ROLES IN
TONIGHT. STAY WITH US. THIS IS LIVE COVERAGE FROM THE
WASHINGTON POST. >>HE GOT THE NOMINATION AND
WENT ON TO WIN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION IN 1952.
>>>DONALD TRUMP DOESN’T WANT ME TO BE THE NOMINEE.
>>WE NEED A MASS POLITICAL MOVEMENT.
>>NOT JUST TO GO TO WASHINGTON BUT TO CHANGE IT BEFORE IT IS
TOO LATE. >>I KNOW WHAT’S BROKEN IN THIS
COUNTRY. I KNOW HOW TO FIX IT. >>THE STAKES COULD NOT BE
HIGHER. >>WE NEED TO OUTCOMPETE THEM
AND WIN. >>I HAVE THAT EXPERIENCE OF
WINNING IN RED AND PURPLE AND BRIGHT BLUE AREAS. >>STREET SCENES OUTSIDE THE
HISTORIC MANCHESTER CITY HALL JUST A FEW BLOCKS FROM HERE AT
STANTON PLAZA. ALL THE POLLS HAVE CLOSED HERE AT THIS HOUR IN
NEW HAMPSHIRE. WELCOME TO LIVE COVERAGE FROM THE WASHINGTON
POST. I’M LIBBY CASEY. IT’S 8:00 HERE ON THE EAST COAST AND WE
ARE LIVE IN DOWNTOWN MANCHESTER FOR THE NATION’S FIRST PRIMARY.
THE MOST RECENT DEMOCRATIC DEBATE WHICH HAPPENED HERE IN
MANCHESTER FRIDAY NIGHT INFLUENCED SOME OF THE VOTERS
THAT WE’VE BEEN TALKING TO AND HELPED THEM MAKE A DECISION ON
WHO TO VOTE FOR TODAY. SO LET’S LOOK AT SOME OF THE HIGHLIGHTS
FROM THAT DEBATE. >>BERNIE’S LABELED HIMSELF, NOT
ME, A DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST. I THINK THAT’S THE LABEL THAT THE
PRESIDENT’S GOING TO LAY ON EVERYONE RUNNING WITH BERNIE IF
HE’S THE NOMINEE. >>WE NEED THAT KIND OF
UNIFICATIONED WHEN OUR NOMINEE IS DIVIDING PEOPLE WITH A
POLITICS THAT SAYS IF YOU DON’T GO ALL THE WAY TO THE EDGE, IT
DOESN’T COUNT. POLITICS SAYS IT’S MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY.
>>ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT SENATOR SANDERS?
>>YES. >>THE WAY YOU BRING PEOPLE
TOGETHER IS BY PRESENTING AN AGENDA THAT WORKS FOR THE
WORKING PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY, NOT FOR THE BILLIONAIRE CLASS.
>>THE ENTIRE SOCIALISM/CAPITALISM DICHOTOMY
IS COMPLETELY OUT OF DATE. >>WHEN YOU SEE A GOVERNMENT
THAT WORKS GREAT FOR THOSE WHO CAN HIRE ARMIES OF LOBBYISTS AND
MAKE BIG CAMPAIGN DONATIONS AND IT’S NOT WORKING SO GREAT FOR
EVERYONE ELSE, THAT IS CORRUPTION, PURE AND SIMPLE AND
WE NEED TO CALL IT OUT FOR WHAT IT IS.
>>I’M A FRESH FACE UP HERE FOR A PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE AND I
FIGURE, PETE, THAT 59, MY AGE, IS THE NEW 38.
>>WE HAVE A NEWCOMER IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND LOOK WHERE IT
GOT US. I THINK HAVING SOME EXPERIENCE IS A GOOD THING.
>>SENATOR SANDERS AND MAYOR BUTTIGIEG.
>>WELL, JOINING ME NOW TO TALK ABOUT THAT AND MORE, TWO OF MY
WASHINGTON POST COLLEAGUES JAMES HOHMANN, NATIONAL POLITICAL
REPORTER AND AMBER PHILLIPS, NATIONAL POLITICAL REPORTER FOR
THE FIX. THANKS TO BOTH OF YOU. YOU SAW THERE AMY KLOBUCHAR WAS
PUSHING BACK AND SENDING SOME SLUGS THE WAY OF PETE BUTTIGIEG.
THEY REALLY WEREN’T GETTING — SHE WASN’T GETTING THE CHALLENGE
BACK, AMBER. >>Reporter: AT THE TIME
BECAUSE AT THE TIME HE DIDN’T SEE HER. NOBODY DID. SHE HAS
BEEN POLLING IN THE THIRD, ALMOST IN THE FOURTH TIER EARLY
IN THE CAMPAIGN AND HERE WE ARE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND SHE’S THE
PERSON THAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT WHEN WE GO OUT TO SEE VOTERS. WE
HEAR THEM SAY KLOBUCHAR. I WAS AT A BIDEN EVENT LAST NIGHT. I
WOMAN HAD AN AMY PIN ON AND SHE SAT DOWN AND PINNED HER BIDEN
PIN ON AS WELL AS SHE WAS DECIDING WHO TO VOTE FOR.
>>Reporter: I MET A WOMAN AT THE KLOBUCHAR EVENT I WENT TO IN
EXETER YESTERDAY WHO HAD A JOE BIDEN SIGN IN HER YARD FOR
MONTHS AND WAS HOLDING A KLOBUCHAR LAWN SIGN AND WAS
GOING TO PUT THE KLOBUCHAR LAWN SIGN OUT AND SHE WASN’T GOING TO
DECIDE WHICH OF THE TWO TO BACK UNTIL SHE WENT INTO THE POLLING
PLACE. >>Reporter: WHAT DOES THAT SAY
TO YOU THAT IT’S TAKING SO LONG TO DECIDE BECAUSE WE’VE HEARD
THAT FROM A LOT OF VOTERS? WE HEARD THAT FROM EMILY GUSKIN.
>>I THINK PEOPLE WANT TO GET IT RIGHT. THE EXPERIENCE FOR A LOT
OF PEOPLE IS DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN TRAUMATIZING AND THEY
DIDN’T EXPECT TRUMP TO WIN FOUR YEARS AGO AND THEY WANT TO PICK
SOMEONE WHO SHARES THEIR VALUES, BUT WHO IS GOING TO WIN BECAUSE
THEY DON’T WANT FOUR MORE YEARS OF TRUMP. IT’S HARD TO OVERSTATE
HOW HEAVILY THAT WEIGHS ON PEOPLE AND ONE OF THE GREAT
THINGS ABOUT NEW HAMPSHIRE AND IT’S NOT REPRESENTATIVE, WE CAN
CRITICIZE IOWA AND NEW HAMPSHIRE, MOST PEOPLE HERE TAKE
KIND OF THE DUTY INCREDIBLY SERIOUSLY. THAT’S ONE OF THE
REASONS THEY’RE WILLING TO CHANGE. I TALKED TO A LOT OF
BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORTERS WHO LOVE BERNIE SANDERS AND STILL
KIND OF WENT OUT OF THEIR WAY TO TELL ME THAT THEY WEREN’T
COMMITTED TO HIM. THEY MADE A POINT TO LISTEN TO THE OTHER
CANDIDATES BEFORE SETTLING BACK ON SANDERS. THAT IS SORT OF THE
POLITICAL CULTURE HERE WHERE PEOPLE FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE KIND
OF A MORAL OBLIGATION TO HEAR ALL THE CANDIDATES OUT AND THEN
TO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR THE KIND OF CANDIDATE WHO IS GOING
TO WIN THE ELECTION, ESPECIALLY WHEN DONALD TRUMP’S IN THE WHITE
HOUSE. >>Reporter: I THINK WHEN
HILLARY CLINTON LOST, THE GROUND OPENED UP FOR DEMOCRATS AND THEY
HAD NO IDEA WHICH WAY WAS UP AND DOWN. I DON’T THINK THEY FEEL
LIKE THEY’RE WALKING ON SOLID GROUND.
>>Reporter: WE’VE GOT SOME BREAKING NEWS. ANDREW YANG IS
DROPPING OUT OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE.
>>Reporter: WOW.>
>>Reporter: THAT MAKES SENSE. >>Reporter: IT’S A SURPRISE TO
HEAR THAT NOW AT THIS POINT BECAUSE TYPICALLY YOU’D WAIT FOR
THE RESULTS, GET A READ OF THE GROUND, GIVE YOUR SPEECH AND
SORT OF REGROUP AND MAKE ANNOUNCES.
>>Reporter: YEAH, THAT’S NEWS. ANDREW YANG IS INTERESTING
BECAUSE YANG ACTUALLY WAS SURPRISINGLY APPEALING TO A LOT
OF PEOPLE. A LOT OF PEOPLE WOULD SAY YANG WAS THEIR THIRD CHOICE
WHO I TALKED TO. HE WAS SORT OF —
>>Reporter: WHY SURPRISING? POLITICAL OUTSIDER.
>>Reporter: HE’S A POLITICAL OUTSIDERS. BESIDES SANDERS AND
WARREN HE WAS THE MOST EFFECTIVE UNLIKE ANY OTHER CANDIDATE, BUT
PROSECUTING THE ANTI-ELITE MESSAGE WHICH IS OUR ELITES HAVE
FAILED US. WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. HIS
UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME, A LOT OF VOTERS THOUGHT IT WAS GIMMICKY
BUT LIKED HE WAS PUTTING HIS IDEAS INTO THE CONVERSATION
ABOUT TRYING TO LIFT PEOPLE UP, TRYING TO TALK ABOUT REPARATIONS
UNABASHEDLY. HE WAS ALSO RIVALED EQUALLY BY KLOBUCHAR WITH A
GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR. HE WAS VERY FUNNY AT A LOT OF THESE
EVENTS AND CATTLE CALLS AND PEOPLE KIND OF LIKED HIM. I
DON’T THINK HE HURT HIMSELF. NO ONE HATES ANDREW YANG.
>>Reporter: NO. THEY LIKED HIM, BUT THEY DIDN’T LOVE HIM.
>>Reporter: RIGHT.>>Reporter: WE’RE COMING UP ON
A STRETCH OF CAMPAIGNING OVER THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS THAT WILL
TAKE US INTO 14 STATES AND SUPER TUESDAY. THAT IS EXPENSIVE. THAT
IS TIME CONSUMING. I THINK ANDREW YANG IS NOT THE ONLY
PERSON LOOKING AT — I DON’T KNOW HOW I’M GOING TO DO THIS.
>>Reporter: THERE CERTAINLY IS THE QUESTION OF VOTES, BUT ALSO
MONEY. WE’RE GETTING SOME EARLY RESULTS NOW. LET’S CHECK IN WITH
OUR ELECTION INSIGHTS TEAM IN WASHINGTON AND JEREMY BOWERS.
JEREMY. >>THANKS A LOT, LIBBY. THE LAST
TIME WE TALKED THERE WAS ABOUT 6% OF THE VOTE IN. NOW WE’RE
LOOKING AT ALMOST 15%, ACTUALLY A LITTLE OVER 15%. THIS IS LIVE
UPDATING. SO OCCASIONALLY WE’LL GET A BATCH OF VOTES WHILE I’M
TALKING. FOR A MINUTE LET’S SET UP THE BOARD. BERNIE SANDERS IS
IN PURPLE, PETE BUTTIGIEG IN GREEN, AMY KLOBUCHAR IN LIGHT
BLUE AND ELIZABETH WARREN IN ORANGE. NOW WE’RE SEEING RESULTS
IN EVERY COUNTY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE WHICH IS REALLY INTERESTING.
THAT MEANS WE’VE GOT A GOOD SPREAD AND WE’RE LOOKING AT
RESULTS THAT WILL START BEING MEANINGFUL AND START MAKING
SENSE. SO AGAIN, WHAT THE RESULTS THAT WE’RE SEEING NOW,
BERNIE SANDERS AT 28% OF THE VOTE. WE’RE SEEING PETE
BUTTIGIEG AT 22.5%. WE’RE SEEING AMY KLOBUCHAR A LITTLE BIT OVER
20% AND ELIZABETH WARREN IN A PRETTY DISTANT FOURTH AT JUST
ABOUT 9 AND A LITTLE BIT PERCENT. SOME INTERESTING
REGIONAL TRENDS, WE AREN’T SEEING A WHOLE LOT OF VOTES AND
WE’RE WAITING FOR A LOT OF URBAN AREAS TO COME IN, BUT WE NOTICED
THERE’S SOME INTERESTING STUFF GOING ON IN HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY
WHERE THE CITY OF MANCHESTER IS LOCATED. THE RESULTS WE’RE
SEEING ARE STRONGLY PRO BERNIE. HE’S GOT 31.3% OF THE VOTE AND
BUTTIGIEG AND KLOBUCHAR ARE REALLY UNDERPERFORMING. THIS IS
ONE OF THOSE AREAS, THOUGH, WHERE WE EXPECTED TO SEE MAYBE A
LITTLE BIT MORE OF AN ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATE. YOU CAN
SEE THAT HERE. JOE BIDEN’S GOT ABOUT 9% OF THE VOTE. HE’S
REALLY AHEAD OF WHERE WE HAD EXPECTED HIM TO BE AT THIS
POINT. THERE’S ANOTHER PLACE I’D LIKE TO YOU ABOUT AND THIS IS
THE BUTTIGIEG SURGE. WE’RE SEEING A WALL OF INTERESTING
RESULTS FOR MAYOR PETE IN THIS AREA. A LOT OF THESE ARE SMALL
PLACES. THEY DON’T HAVE A LOT OF VOTERS. SO IT’S POSSIBLE THIS IS
SOMETHING THAT ISN’T A REAL TREND, BUT I WANT TO TALK A BIT
ABOUT CARROLL COUNTY. CARROLL COUNTY HAS ABOUT 30% REPORTING.
WE’RE SEEING BUTTIGIEG HERE WITH LIKE A VERY SLIGHT LEAD OVER
BERNIE SANDERS. SO THIS FOR US IS A LITTLE BIT INTERESTING
BECAUSE THIS IS ONE OF THE EARLY VOTING PLACES AND WE WERE SEEING
AMY KLOBUCHAR DO WELL HERE PREVIOUSLY IN MILLSFIELD. FOR A
LITTLE MORE ON THE INSIDE OF THESE NUMBERS WE’D LIKE TO TALK
TO LENNY BROWNER, A SENIOR SCIENTIST ON OUR ELECTIONS
INSIGHT TEAM. IS THERE ANYTHING JUMPING OFF THE PAGE TO YOU
ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON WITH THESE JAMBERS?
>>LIKE YOU SAID, BERNIE SANDERS QUITE WELL IN MANCHESTER AND AMY
KLOBUCHAR IS DOING WELL IN CONCORD. THE RESULTS WE’RE
SEEING SO FAR ARE FROM RURAL PLACES. IT WILL BE INTERESTING
TO SEE IF THERE’S A DIVIDE BETWEEN RURAL AND URBAN PLACES.
>>A LOT OF PLACES IN THE UNITED STATES WHERE THE RURAL PRECINCTS
TEND TO REPORT EARLIER. A LITTLE BIT OF THAT CAN BE MISLEADING
WHEN WE’RE LOOKING AT THE RAW VOTE COUNT. YOU’VE BEEN
WORKING ON THIS MODEL YOU’VE BEEN WORKING ON TO HELP
UNDERSTAND THAT. >>THE MODEL TAKES THE 2016
RESULTS AND BASICALLY COMPARES THEM TO WHAT WE’RE SEEING SO
FAR. IN NEW HAMPSHIRE IT’S DOING THIS ON THE TOWNSHIP LEVEL. SO
FAR 23 TOWNSHIPS HAVE REPORTED. WE NEED APPROXIMATELY 28 TO
START THIS MODEL RUNNING. I’M HOPING ONE OF THE TOWNSHIPS THAT
COME IN SOON ARE ONE OF THE BIG CITIES BECAUSE MOST OF THE
TOWNSHIPS THAT ARE AT 100% REPORTING ARE RURAL TOWNSHIPS.
>> IT WOULD CERTAINLY BE MORE
HELPFUL FOR US TO HAVE A MORE REPRESENTATIVE SAMPLE OF VOTERS.
I’M REALLY WAITING FOR THOSE FIVE EXTRA TOWNSHIPS. THERE’S
ONE LAST THING I’D LIKE TO SHOW YOU ON THE MAP BEFORE WE SEND IT
BACK. I WANT TO TALK ABOUT CONCORD. THIS IS MERRIMACK
COUNTY, RELATIVELY LARGE, HAS AN URBAN AREA IN CONCORD AND WE’RE
SEEING AMY KLOBUCHAR IS DOING REALLY WELL HERE. SHE’S WON SOME
TOWNSHIPS ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF THE CITY AND WE’RE REALLY
EXPECTING TO SEE THAT INCREASE OVER TIME. WE’RE JUST NOT EVEN
AT 25% OF THE VOTE REPORTING HERE AND WE’RE SEEING PETE
BUTTIGIEG IS REALLY CLOSE TO AMY KLOBUCHAR. SHE’S GOT ABOUT 25%,
PETE BUTTIGIEG ABOUT 24% AND BERNIE SANDERS BACK HERE AT
ABOUT 23%. WE’LL EXCEED MORE OF THOSE RESULTS THROUGH THE NIGHT.
UNTIL THEN WE’LL KICK IT BACK ON THE GROUND TO YOU IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE, LIBBY. >>Reporter: THANK YOU SO MUCH,
JEREMY. LET’S GO NOW TO JOYCE KOH WHO IS WITH THE SANDERS
CAMPAIGN. >>Reporter: I AM JOINED BY
RYAN BUCHANON WHO IS THE STATEHOUSE REPRESENTATIVE HERE
AND ALSO THE CO-CHAIR FOR VETERANS FOR BERNIE. I WANTED TO
ASK YOU WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE NUMBERS COMING OUT SO FAR.
IT’S LOOKING LIKE A PRETTY GOOD NIGHT FOR BERNIE.
>>YEAH. I HAD NO DOUBT IN MY MIND IT WAS GOING TO BE A GOOD
NIGHT FOR BERNIE. BERNIE HAS ALWAYS HAD A STRONG GAME HERE IN
NEW HAMPSHIRE BEING A NEIGHBORING STATE SENATOR. THEY
HAD A REALLY GOOD GAME PLAN WITH THE PEOPLE GOING OUT SUPPORTING
BERNIE. HE DID GREAT. I WASN’T SURPRISED BY THAT AT ALL. I
ALWAYS FIGURED HE’D FINISH AT 35, 36% AS FAR AS TOTAL OVERALL.
>>Reporter: YOU’VE BEEN TO AT LEAST 10 BERNIE EVENTS IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE. HOW HAVE YOU SEEN SORT OF THE EVOLUTION OF HIM
THROUGHOUT THE YEAR AND NOW OBVIOUSLY THE NIGHT OF THE
PRIMARY IS A BIG NIGHT FOR HIM, HOW HAVE YOU SEEN HIM CHANGE AS
A CANDIDATE OR HIS CAMPAIGN EVOLVE?
>>I ACTUALLY THINK THAT’S KIND OF THE APPEAL OF BERNIE IS THAT
HE HASN’T CHANGED. YOU KNOW, HE’S PUSHED FOR THE SAME AGENDA
FOR 40 YEARS AND IT GOT TO THE POINT WHERE NOW THE PARTY HAS
COME TO HIM VERSUS HIM GOING TO THE PARTY AND I THINK THAT’S
WHAT’S SO APPEALING ABOUT A CANDIDATE LIKE BERNIE SANDERS. A
LOT OF CANDIDATES WILL FLIP-FLOP ON POLICY. WE SAW THAT WITH AMY
KLOBUCHAR — NOT AMY KLOBUCHAR, EXCUSE ME, KAMALA HARRIS WHERE
ON STAGE SHE WAS SAYING I’M FOR MEDICARE FOR ALL BUT THEN GOES
BACK TO THE SPIN ROOM AND SAID NOT REALLY. THAT’S WHAT MAKES
PEOPLE SO DRAWN TO BERNIE IS THAT YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE
GETTING. HE’S NOT TRYING TO JUST WIN YOUR VOTE BY SAYING WHAT HE
THINKS YOU WANT TO HEAR. HE’LL TELL YOU THINGS THAT ARE NOT
POPULAR, BUT ARE TRUE AND THAT’S KIND OF A MARK OF JUST THE TYPE
OF QUALITY OF PERSON THAT HE IS AND THE INTEGRITY THAT BERNIE
SANDERS HAS. >>Reporter: DO YOU THINK THAT
HIM BEING A SENATOR FROM VERMONT, BEING A NEIGHBOR, BEING
FROM A NEIGHBORING STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE, DO YOU THINK THAT
GIVES HIM AN ADVANTAGE OR DO YOU THINK HIS POLICY AND MESSAGE
JUST RESONATES BECAUSE IT DOES? >>NO. THAT’S A FAIR QUESTION TO
ASK. I THINK WE HAVE A UNIQUE SAMPLE IN THIS WHERE WE HAVE
ANOTHER NEIGHBORING SENATOR, ELIZABETH WARREN, COMING INTO
THE PRIMARIES THE SAME TIME, BUT NOW WE’RE SEEING ELIZABETH
WARREN IS NOT PERFORMING AS WELL AS BERNIE SANDERS. IF WE LOOK AT
THE WARREN’S CAMPAIGN, SHE DID CHANGE SOME POLICIES, KIND OF
WALKED BACK SOME THINGS, WHEREAS BERNIE SANDERS HAS BEEN POUNDING
THE PAVEMENT GOING NO, THIS IS WHAT I BELIEVE. THIS IS WHAT
WE’RE GOING TO DO. YOU CAN SEE THE RESULTS YOURSELF. IT’S THE
POLICIES. THE POLICIES ARE WHAT MAKES BERNIE NOT ONLY THE MOST
ELECTABLE, BUT THE MOST TRUSTED AND THE MOST DEPENDABLE PERSON
OUT OF ALL THE CANDIDATES. >>Reporter: HOW DO YOU THINK
IT WILL GO FOR HIM TONIGHT? >>I THINK IT’S GOING TO GO VERY
WELL. I’M LOOKING FOR TONIGHT. IT’S GOING TO BE A BIG VICTORY
FOR US, MOMENTUM GOING INTO NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA AND
SUPER TUESDAY I THINK WE’RE GOING TO CLEAN SWEEP.
>>Reporter: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING US. LIBBY, PEOPLE
HAVE STARTED TRICKLING IN AND STARTING TO FILL OUT. THERE’S A
LONG LINE OUTSIDE. I WILL SEND IT BACK TO YOU IN MANCHESTER.
>>GREAT. THANK YOU SO MUCH, JOYCE KOH, WITH THE SANDERS
CAMPAIGN. LET’S GO TO HANNAH JEWELL WHO IS WITH THE ELIZABETH
WARREN TEAM AND WARREN IS SOMEONE WHO NEEDS TO DO WELL
TONIGHT TO KEEP HER MOMENTUM GOING. HANNAH, TELL US ABOUT
WHAT YOU’RE SEEING THERE. >>Reporter: HI THERE, LIBBY.
I’M THRILLED TO BEING HERE WITH OUR COLLEAGUE ANNIE LEMSKE
OF THE WASHINGTON POST. WHAT SHOULD WE BE LOOKING FOR?
>>HI THERE. SENATOR WARREN WILL BE OUT TO SPEAK ANY TIME NOW.
THE BIG NEWS TODAY IS HER CAMPAIGN MANAGER PUT OUT A MEMO
A FEW HOURS AGO SORT OF OUTLINING A PATH TO THE
NOMINATION FOR HER. HER BIG TAKE-AWAY WAS SHE HAS AN IDEA OF
WINNING THE NOMINATION WITHOUT ANY VICTORIES, AT LEAST EARLY
VICTORIES IN STATES. SHE’S TRYING TO MAKE THE CASE THAT
IT’S A VERY MUDDLED RACE AND I THINK IT’S A FAIR POINT AND SHE
CAN PERSIST AND STAY IN THE HUNT EVEN IF SHE DOES NOT DO WELL NOT
ONLY HERE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, WHICH IS RIGHT IN HER BACKYARD,
BUT ALSO IN — THEY’RE NOT LOOKING AT GOOD FINISHES IN
NEVADA OR SOUTH CAROLINA THAT ARE COMING UP AND IT’S NOT
REALLY OBVIOUS WHICH STATES SHE WOULD WIN ON SUPER TUESDAY. THE
POINT THEY MAKE IS IT’S NOT ABOUT WINNING STATES. IT’S ABOUT
WINNING DELEGATES AND THAT SHE HAS A SOLID CHANCE TO CONTINUE
TO PULL THIS DELEGATES. THAT’S THE STATE OF THE RACE RIGHT NOW.
>>Reporter: IT SOUNDS LIKE A VERY WARRENNESQUE PLAN. IT’S
KIND OF A COMPLICATED PLAN. IS IT AN INSPIRING ONE TO
SUPPORTERS AND TO DONORS, FRANKLY?
>>IT’S A VERY COMPLICATED ONE FOR SUPPORTERS AND DONORS.
TALKING TO SOME OF THE OTHER CAMPAIGNS ABOUT, THIS THEIR TAKE
IS THAT THIS IS A SORT OF MEMO GEARED TOWARDS HER VERY HIGHLY
EDUCATED DONOR CLASS AND HER BASE WHICH PEOPLE THAT
LIKE TO HAVE THEORIES AND A COUNTER ARGUMENT TO MAKE. TO
THAT EFFECT THEY DO PROVIDE A LOT OF COUNTER THEORIES AND A
LOT OF DATA. THE OTHER INTERESTING THING ABOUT THIS
MEMO IS THIS IS A CAMPAIGN THAT’S TALKED OVER AND OVER
AGAIN ABOUT NOT HAVING CONSULTANTS, NOT USING
POLLSTERS, BUT THEY’RE USING A LOT OF POLLING DATA IN THAT
MEMO. SO THAT’S A LITTLE ODD. >>Reporter: WE’LL KEEP AN EYE
ON WHAT’S COMING SOON. BACK TO YOU FOR NOW, LIBBY.
>>THANKS SO MUCH, HANNAH. ANDREW YANG IS NOW ADDRESSING
SUPPORTERS. >>THAT IS THANKS TO ALL OF YOU
WHO ARE HERE TONIGHT. THOSE THOUSANDS OF VOTERS CAME
OUT FOR OUR CAMPAIGN TONIGHT. TONIGHT IS NOT THE OUTCOME WE
FOUGHT SO HARD TO ACHIEVE. IT IS BITTERLY DISAPPOINTING FOR MANY
OF US, BUT IT SHOULDN’T BE. EVERY SINGLE DAY I’VE BEEN
CAMPAIGNING I’VE HAD SUPPORTERS SAY TO ME YOUR CAMPAIGN HELPED
ME OUT OF A DEPRESSION. THANK YOU. [ APPLAUSE ] WORKING ON THIS CAMPAIGN HAS
MADE ME A BETTER PERSON. I MET MY SIGNIFICANT OTHER
BECAUSE OF YOU. [ APPLAUSE ] YOUR CAMPAIGN BROUGHT MY FAMILY
TOGETHER. YOUR CAMPAIGN GOT ME EXCITED
ABOUT POLITICS FOR THE FIRST TIME. [ APPLAUSE ]
THESE ARE ALL THINGS THAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID TO ME IN THE PAST DAYS
AND THEY ARE THE REASONS WHY I AM SO INCREDIBLY PROUD OF THIS
CAMPAIGN AND WHAT WE’VE ACCOMPLISHED TOGETHER. WE HAVE TOUCHED AND IMPROVED
MILLIONS OF LIVES AND MOVED THIS COUNTRY WE LOVE SO MUCH IN THE
RIGHT DIRECTION AND WHILE THERE IS GREAT WORK LEFT TO BE DONE
YOU KNOW I AM THE MATH GUY AND IT IS CLEAR TONIGHT FROM THE
NUMBERS THAT WE ARE NOT GOING TO WIN THIS RACE. I AM NOT SOMEONE
WHO WANTS TO ACCEPT DONATIONS AND SUPPORT IN A RACE THAT WE
WILL NOT WIN AND SO TONIGHT I AM ANNOUNCING I AM SUSPENDING MY
CAMPAIGN FOR PRESIDENT. >>WE LOVE YOU, ANDREW!
>>I LOVE YOU, TOO. THANK YOU. [ APPLAUSE ]
>>THANK YOU SO MUCH. >>ANDREW YANG! ANDREW YANG!
ANDREW YANG! ANDREW YANG! ANDREW YANG!
ANDREW YANG! ANDREW YANG! >>THANK YOU SO MUCH, NEW
HAMPSHIRE! I LOVE YOU, TOO. THIS IS NOT AN EASY DECISION OR
SOMETHING I MADE LIGHTLY WITH THE TEAM. ENDINGS ARE HARD AND
I’VE ALWAYS HAD THE INTENTION TO STAY IN THIS RACE UNTIL THE VERY
END, BUT I HAVE BEEN PERSUADED THAT THE MESSAGE OF THIS
CAMPAIGN WILL NOT BE STRENGTHENED BY MY STAYING IN
THIS RACE ANY LONGER. ENDINGS ARE HARD, NEW HAMPSHIRE, BUT
THIS IS NOT AN ENDING. THIS IS A BEGINNING. [ APPLAUSE ] THIS IS JUST THE STARTING LINE.
THIS CAMPAIGN HAS AWAKENED SOMETHING FUNDAMENTAL IN THIS
COUNTRY AND OURSELVES. THIS MOVEMENT HAS OUTLASTED OVER
A DOZEN SENATORS, GOVERNORS AND MEMBERS OF CONGRESS TO BECOME
THE MOST EXCITING FORCE IN THIS ENTIRE RACE. THE YANG YANG HAS FUNDAMENTALLY
SHIFTED THE DIRECTION OF THIS COUNTRY AND TRANSFORMED OUR
POLITICS AND WE ARE ONLY CONTINUING TO GROW. I’D LIKE TO THANK MY INCREDIBLE
STAFF AND THE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE WHO LEFT THEIR LIVES AND THEIR
JOBS TO JOIN AND BUILD THIS CAMPAIGN. I KNOW WHAT A RISK
THAT WAS. VERY FEW PEOPLE JOINED THIS CAMPAIGN BECAUSE THEY
THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A GOOD CAREER MOVE. SO THANK YOU. THANK YOU TO MY
TEAM! [ APPLAUSE ] MY GOAL WHEN I FIRST STARTED
RUNNING WAS TO SOLVE THE PROBLEMS THAT GOT DONALD TRUMP
ELECTED. IN ORDER TO DO THAT, I WILL SUPPORT WHOEVER IS THE
DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE. [ APPLAUSE ]>>ANDREW YANG ANNOUNCING THAT
HE’S DROPPING OUT OF THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE. THAT’S ANDREW
YANG ANNOUNCING HE’S DROPPING OUT, BUT ELIZABETH WARREN IS
COMING OUT TO ADDRESS HER SUPPORTERS. WE’RE GOING TO MOVE
OVER TO THE WARREN EVENT. >>HELLO, NEW HAMPSHIRE! [
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] >>SO THE RESULTS ARE STILL
COMING IN FROM ACROSS THE STATE, BUT RIGHT NOW IT IS CLEAR THAT
SENATOR SANDERS AND MAYOR BUTTIGIEG HAVE STRONG NIGHTS AND
I ALSO WANT TO CONGRATULATE MY FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE AMY
KLOBUCHAR FOR SHOWING JUST HOW WRONG THE PUNDITS CAN BE WHEN
THEY COUNT A WOMAN OUT. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] BUT SINCE WE ARE HERE TONIGHT
AMONG FAMILY AND FRIENDS I ALSO WANT US TO BE HONEST WITH
OURSELVES AS DEMOCRATS. WE MIGHT BE HEADED FOR ANOTHER ONE OF
THOSE LONG PRIMARY FIGHTS THAT LAST FOR MONTHS. WE’RE TWO
STATES IN WITH 55 STATES AND TERRITORIES TO GO. WE STILL HAVE
98% OF OUR DELEGATES FOR OUR NOMINATION UP FOR GRABS AND
AMERICANS IN EVERY PART OF THE COUNTRY ARE GOING TO MAKE THEIR
VOICES HEARD. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] THE QUESTION FOR US DEMOCRATS IS
WHETHER IT WILL BE A LONG, BITTER REHASH OF THE SAME OLD
DIVIDES IN OUR PARTY OR WHETHER WE CAN FIND ANOTHER WAY. SENATOR
SANDERS AND MAYOR BUTTIGIEG ARE BOTH GREAT PEOPLE AND EITHER ONE
OF THEM WOULD BE A FAR BETTER PRESIDENT THAN DONALD TRUMP. I
RESPECT THEM BOTH. BUT THE FIGHT BETWEEN FACTIONS
IN OUR PARTY HAS TAKEN A SHARP TURN IN RECENT WEEKS WITH ADS
MOCKING OTHER CANDIDATES AND WITH SUPPORTERS OF SOME
CANDIDATES SHOUTING CURSES AT OTHER DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES.
THESE HARSH TACTICS MIGHT WORK IF YOU ARE WILLING TO BURN DOWN
THE REST OF THE PARTY IN ORDER TO BE THE LAST MAN STANDING.
THEY MIGHT WORK IF YOU DON’T WORRY ABOUT LEAVING OUR PARTY AND OUR
POLITICS WORSE OFF THAN HOW YOU FOUND IT AND THEY MIGHT WORK IF
YOU THINK ONLY YOU HAVE ALL THE ANSWERS AND ONLY YOU ARE THE
SOLUTION TO ALL OUR PROBLEMS, BUT IF WE’RE GOING TO BEAT
DONALD TRUMP IN NOVEMBER, WE’RE GOING TO NEED HUGE TURNOUT
WITHIN OUR PARTY AND TO GET THAT TURNOUT WE WILL NEED A NOMINEE
THAT THE BROADEST COALITION OF OUR PARTY FEELS LIKE THEY CAN
GET BEHIND. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] >>WARREN! WARREN! WARREN!
WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN!
>>LOOK, WE CANNOT AFFORD TO FALL INTO FACTIONS. WE CAN’T
AFFORD TO SQUANDER OUR COLLECTIVE POWER. WE WIN WHEN WE
COME TOGETHER. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] >>THE REVEREND JESSE JACKSON
ONCE SAID IT TAKES TWO WINGS TO FLY AND I THINK HE’S RIGHT. OUR
CAMPAIGN IS BEST POSITIONED TO BEAT DONALD TRUMP IN NOVEMBER
BECAUSE WE CAN UNITE OUR PARTY. WE CAN UNITE THIS PARTY AND THIS
COUNTRY BY MOBILIZING PEOPLE BEHIND IDEAS THAT ARE NOT ONLY
POPULAR WITH HUGE MAJORITIES OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BUT THAT
ALSO ACCOMPLISH STRUCTURAL CHANGE FOR OUR BROKEN GOVERNMENT
AND OUR RIGGED ECONOMY. WE CAN UNITE PEOPLE AROUND THE
WEALTH TAX ON THE VERY RICHEST AMERICANS SO WE CAN INVEST IN
EDUCATION FOR ALL THE CHILDREN. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ]
>>WE CAN UNITE PEOPLE AROUND ENDING CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON,
ENDING THE CORRUPTION THAT HAS MEANT STAGNANT RAISES, RISING
COST AND A TIGHTER AND TIGHTER SQUEEZE ON THE MIDDLE CLASS. WE
CAN DO THAT. ENDING CORRUPTION THAT LEAVES MORE AND MORE
WORKING FAMILIES WITH LESS AND LESS HOPE FOR A BETTER FUTURE
AND THAT HAS CRUSHED PEOPLE OF COLOR EVEN HARDER, ENDING THE
CORRUPTION THAT HAS SHORT CHANGED OUR KIDS, OUR SCHOOLS
AND THE VERY SURVIVAL OF THE PLANET THEY WILL INHERIT. FAMILIES IN AMERICA TODAY ARE
RUNNING OUT OF TIME. WE HAVE FACED DECADES OF SHRINKING
OPPORTUNITIES, DECADES OF RISING INEQUALITY, DECADES OF A
WIDENING RACIAL WEALTH GAP. BIG BUSINESS HAS CAPTURED AND USED
GOVERNMENT TO SERVE ITS OWN INTERESTS AT THE EXPENSE OF
SMALLER BUSINESSES AND THE EXPENSE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
I BELIEVE IN MARKETS, BUT MARKETS WITHOUT RULES ARE THEFT.
MARKETS WITHOUT RULES PERPETUATE RACIAL DISCRIMINATION. AND FOR
TOO LONG THE RULES HAVE BEEN RIGGED AGAINST PEOPLE WHO JUST
WANT A LEVEL PLAYING FIELD. 2020 IS
OUR TIME TO CHANGE WHO MAKES THE RULES. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] IT WAS NEVER MY PLAN TO RUN FOR
OFF OF ANY KIND. >>WE’RE GLAD YOU DID!
>>WELL, GOOD. BUT NOT MY PLAN AND I HAVE BEEN IN THIS FIGHT,
THOUGH, THIS FIGHT FOR WORKING FAMILIES FOR DECADES. I FOUGHT
CREDIT CARD COMPANIES AS THEY TRIED TO TRICK AND TRAP
CONSUMERS. I FOUGHT OUR OWN BANKING
REGULATORS TO HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE DURING THE FINANCIAL
CRASH. I FOUGHT FOR A CONSUMER CREDIT AGENCY TO FIGHT FOR
CONSUMERS AND I GOT IN THIS FIGHT AND RAN
FOR OFFICE BECAUSE I SAW THAT FAMILIES WERE BEING SQUEEZED
HARDER THAN EVER AND TOO MANY POLITICIANS WERE NOT GETTING
ENOUGH DONE. I’M HERE TO GET BIG THINGS DONE. [ CHEERING AND
APPLAUSE ] BECAUSE HERE’S THE THING ABOUT
POLITICIANS. WHETHER THEY’RE OFFERING VAGUE PLATITUDES OR
POWERFUL RHETORIC, THEY WILL ULTIMATELY FACE THE SAME TEST,
ACTUALLY GETTING ANYTHING DONE IN A WASHINGTON THAT IS BADLY
BROKEN. AMERICANS FROM ALL POLITICAL BACKGROUNDS DON’T NEED
A BUNCH OF FLOWERY WORDS TO EXPLAIN THIS. THEY KNOW DEEP
DOWN IN THEIR BONES EXACTLY WHY GOVERNMENT DOESN’T WORK FOR
THEM. IT’S CORRUPTION AND WE NEED TO CALL IT OUT FOR WHAT IT
IS. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] THE CORRUPTION THAT GIVES
LOBBYISTS A LOUDER VOICE THAN VOTERS, THE CORRUPTION THAT LETS
BIG COMPANIES PAY NOTHING IN TAXES WHILE SMALL BUSINESSES PAY
FULL FREIGHT, THE CORRUPTION THAT INSURES THAT NOTHING EVER
CHANGES ON GUN VIOLENCE OR CLIMATE POLICY OR DRUG PRICES
EVEN THOUGH NEARLY EVERYONE IN AMERICA WANTS CHANGE. AND LET’S
BE SPECIFIC HERE. ON A DAY WHEN CAREER PROSECUTORS SHOWED MORE
BACKBONE THAN ALMOST EVERY REPUBLICAN SENATOR STANDING UP
TO THIS PRESIDENT, AMERICANS OF ALL POLITICAL STRIPES ARE
GRAVELY CONCERNED ABOUT THE CORRUPTION OF A TRUMP JUSTICE
DEPARTMENT THAT ABANDONS THE RULE OF LAW TO GIVE SWEETHEART
DEALS TO CRIMINALS WHO COMMIT THEIR CRIMES ON BEHALF OF DONALD
TRUMP AND YES, ROGER STONE, I’M LOOKING AT YOU. [ CHEERING AND
APPLAUSE ] SO TONIGHT I HAVE A MESSAGE FOR
OUR PARTY AND FOR THIS NATION. OUR BEST CHANCE OF BEATING
DONALD TRUMP IS WITH A CANDIDATE WHO CAN DO THE WORK AND I MEAN
THE HARD, DISCIPLINED WORK, A CANDIDATE WHO CAN BUILD A
CAMPAIGN TO UNITE OUR PARTY AND A CANDIDATE WHO CAN BUILD A
MOVEMENT THAT IS READY TO TAKE ON CORRUPTION AND WIN. [
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] >>WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN!
WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN!
>>AND THE ONLY WAY WE CAN TAKE ON CORRUPTION IN WASHINGTON IS
IF WE’RE NOT BEHOLDEN TO IT. LET’S JUST CHECK THE FACTS. AMY
AND I ARE THE ONLY CANDIDATES IN THIS RACE WHO ARE NOT EITHER
BILLIONAIRES OR SUPPORTED BY SUPER PACS. AND UNLIKE OTHER
CANDIDATES, I DON’T FUND MY CAMPAIGN BY SPENDING TIME BEHIND
CLOSED DOORS SUCKING UP TO WEALTHY DONORS. [ CHEERING AND
APPLAUSE ] OUR MOVEMENT IS POWERED BY YOU.
IT IS POWERED BY PEOPLE AND OVER THE PAST YEAR I’VE HAD THE
CHANCE TO SHAKE HANDS OR HUG WAY OVER 100,000 PEOPLE. IN MORE
THAN 220 TOWN HALLS, IN 29 STATES AND PUERTO RICO AND, YOU
KNOW, THERE ARE A LOT OF DIFFERENCES AMONG US. WE COME
FROM DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS, DIFFERENT RELIGIONS, LANGUAGES
AND EXPERIENCES. WE HAVE DIFFERENT DREAMS AND DIFFERENT
ASPIRATIONS. WE FEEL THE URGENCY OF THIS MOMENT IN DIFFERENT
WAYS, BUT WITH ALL OF THOSE GLORIOUS DIFFERENCES FOR THE
MOST PART WE WANT THE SAME THINGS. WE WANT AN AMERICA WHERE
DECISIONS IN WASHINGTON AREN’T BOUGHT AND PAID FOR BY LOBBYISTS
AND BIG DONORS. WE WANT AN AMERICA WHERE EVERY PERSON HAS A
VOICE IN OUR DEMOCRACY. [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] WE WANT AN AMERICA WHERE FOSSIL
FUEL COMPANIES DON’T HAVE A VICE GRIP ON OUR PLANET, AN AMERICA
WHERE WE CAN BREATHE THE AIR AND DRINK THE WATER. [ CHEERING AND
APPLAUSE ] AN AMERICA WHERE EVERY CHILD CAN
DREAM BIG AND ACTUALLY HAVE A CHANCE TO MAKE IT. BECAUSE NO
MATTER THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN, WHO YOU LOVE, HOW YOU WORSHIP OR
WHAT ZIP CODE YOU LIVE IN, YOU DESERVE AN AMERICA WHERE YOU ARE
SAFE AND YOUR OPPORTUNITIES ARE JUST AS GOOD AS ANYONE ELSE’S. [
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] I CAN SEE THAT AMERICA. THAT
AMERICA IS WITHIN OUR REACH AND IF YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT AMERICA,
IF YOU THINK IT’S WORTH FIGHTING FOR, THEN JOIN US. GO TO
ELIZABETHWARREN.COM RIGHT NOW. PITCH IN A FEW BUCKS. SIGN UP TO
VOLUNTEER. GET INVOLVED WITH OUR CAMPAIGN. THIS MOMENT WILL NOT
COME OUR WAY AGAIN. >>WE’RE WITH YOU! [ CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] >>TONIGHT —
>>WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN! WARREN!
WARREN! WARREN! >>TONIGHT I’M HERE TO SAY THANK
YOU. THANK YOU TO EVERY VOLUNTEER, THANK YOU TO EVERY
ORGANIZER, TO EVERY DOOR KNOCKER, TO EVERY PHONE BANKER,
FOR EVERY $5. THANK YOU FOR HELPING BUILD A MOVEMENT TO TAKE
BACK OUR DEMOCRACY AND REBUILD IT FROM THE GRASSROOTS UP. AND WHILE I’M THANKING EVERYONE,
I WANT TO TAKE JUST A MOMENT — WHERE ARE YOU? — TO THANK MY
SWEETIE, BRUCE. AND I ALSO WANT TO THANK THE
GOOD BOY WHO POSED FOR ONE SELFIE AFTER ANOTHER, OUR
BAILEY. THE FIGHT WE’RE IN, THE FIGHT TO
SAVE OUR DEMOCRACY, IS AN UPHILL BATTLE, BUT OUR CAMPAIGN IS
BUILT FOR THE LONG HAUL. AND WE ARE JUST GETTING STARTED. [
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] I AM GRATEFUL DOWN TO MY TOES
FOR WHAT OUR CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH SO FAR. MY
PLANS FOR THIS COUNTRY HAVE BEEN INFLUENCED BY LETTERS PRESSED
INTO MY PALM BY LITTLE GIRLS. MY WILL TO FIGHT HAS BEEN
STRENGTHENED BY THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE WHISPERED THEIR DREAMS IN
MY EARS. MY DETERMINATION TO LEAD A MOVEMENT HAS BEEN FORGED
BY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE SAID THEY ARE
READY TO FIGHT FOR AN AMERICA THEY KNOW WE CAN BE BECAUSE IF
WE HAVE THE HOPE THAT COMES WITH DREAMING BIG, IF WE HAVE THE
COURAGE TO FIGHT HARD, WE ARE GOING TO WIN. THANK YOU! [
CHEERING AND APPLAUSE ] 7 7ALL I’M ASKING FOR IS A
LITTLE RESPECT WHEN YOU COME HOME 7 7.
>>ELIZABETH WARREN ADDRESSING HER SUPPORTERS HERE IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE. LET’S GO TO MY COLLEAGUES, JAMES HOHMANN AND
AMBER PHILLIPS. SHARED THESE LINES A LOT OF TIMES ON THE
CAMPAIGN TRAIL, WHAT MESSAGE DOES SHE NEED TO GIVE TO
SUPPORTERS? [ AUDIO DIFFICULTIES ]
>>MY COLLEAGUE KEVIN IS GOING TO BE THE START OF THE LINE. FOR
THOSE WITH ACCESSIBILITY NEEDS PLEASE STAY IN YOUR SECTION. WE
WILL COME TO YOU. >>HEY, WE’VE GOT SOME NEW
UPDATE FOR YOU HERE IN THE ELECTION INSIGHT CENTER BACK IN
WASHINGTON D.C. WITH ABOUT A THIRD OF THE VOTE IN WE’RE
SEEING SOME REALLY INTERESTING TRENDS. LET’S GET STARTED ON
THIS MAP. WE’VE GOT BERNIE SANDERS IN THE PURPLE, PETE
BUTTIGIEG IN GREEN, AMY KLOBUCHAR IN THE INDIGO AND
ELIZABETH WARREN IN THE ORANGE. WHAT YOU CAN SEE IS WITH A
LITTLE BIT REPORTING IN EVERY COUNTY WE’RE SEEING A WIDE WALL
OF BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORT. THERE’S SOME PLACES WHERE HE’S
DOING PARTICULARLY WELL. SO HERE IN HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY HE’S GOT
28.3% OF THE VOTE. HE’S RUNNING PRETTY FAR AHEAD OF MAYOR PETE
BUTTIGIEG AND COMPETITORS AMY KLOBUCHAR WHO ARE AT 22.6 AND
19.9, JUST ABOUT 20% THERE. JOE BIDEN A DISTANT FOURTH AT JUST
AROUND 10%. NOW WE’RE SEEING OTHER PLACES WHERE THAT IS NOT
QUITE AS PRONOUNCED. THERE’S A REAL NECK AND NECK RACE HERE IN
MERRIMACK WHICH IS HOME TO THE BIG CITY OF CONCORD. WE’RE
SEEING BERNIE SANDERS HAS NOT EVEN A SINGLE POINT LEAD OVER
PETE BUTTIGIEG HERE AND ACTUALLY THIS IS A SIMILAR CASE IN NEARBY
ROCKINGHAM WHERE WE’RE SEEING JUST ABOUT A ONE-POINT LEAD
BETWEEN SANDERS AND BUTTIGIEG HERE. THAT’S REALLY ONE OF THE
THEMES OF THE NIGHT. IT LOOKS LIKE BERNIE SANDERS IS PRETTY
FAR AHEAD, BUT WE’VE GOT A LITTLE BIT MORE INSIGHT FOR YOU
ON THAT. FOR THAT I WOULD LIKE TO COME OVER HERE TO OUR SENIOR
DATA SCIENTIST LENNY BRAUNER. YOU’VE BEEN RUNNING OUR MODEL
FOR THE FIRST TIME TONIGHT. ARE YOU SEEING ANYTHING INTERESTING
THAT MAYBE GIVES US A LITTLE INSIGHT BEYOND THESE RAW VOTE TOTALS?
>>IT DOESN’T SEEM AS IF BERNIE SANDERS — BERNIE SANDERS MIGHT
HOLD ONTO HIS LEAD, BUT WE’LL SEE HOW IT PROCEEDS THE REST OF
THE NIGHT. WE HAVE A COUPLE INTERESTING THINGS THAT COME OUT
OF THE MODELS. IT SEEMS BERNIE IS HOLDING ONTO 37% OF HIS
VOTERS FROM 2016 WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY LOWER THAN I THOUGHT
AND PROBABLY LOWER THAN WHAT HE HELD ONTO IN IOWA. OTHER THINGS
WE’RE SEEING, IT SEEMS BUTTIGIEG WAS ABLE TO GET VOTERS FROM BOTH
HILLARY CLINTON AND BERNIE SANDERS FROM 2016 WHICH IS
INTERESTING. WE SAW WHEN YOU PRESENTED THE DIAGRAM BEFORE,
BUTTIGIEG WAS ABLE TO GET SOME BERNIE SANDERS SUPPORT FROM
2016, BUT IT SEEMS TO HAVE GONE UP EVEN FURTHER IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
WHERE HE SEEMS TO BE GETTING VOTES, APPROXIMATELY AN EQUAL
NUMBER FROM HILLARY CLINTON AND BERNIE SANDERS. THE THIRD MOST
INTERESTING THING I FOUND IS AMY KLOBUCHAR SEEMS TO BE HILLARY
CLINTON’S SUCCESSOR THIS TIME AROUND GETTING APPROXIMATELY 40%
OF HILLARY CLINTON’S VOTES IN 2016.
>>THIS IS REALLY OUTSTANDING AND INTERESTING BECAUSE THE RAW
VOTE TOTALS CAN BE A LITTLE BIT MISLEADING. LENNY, FOR THAT
KLOBUCHAR VOTE, A THING WE WERE TALKING ABOUT A COUPLE MINUTES
AGO FOR AMY KLOBUCHAR AND PETE BUTTIGIEG IT LOOKS LIKE THE SPAN
OF POSSIBLE OUTCOMES WAS RELATIVELY WIDE, BUT FOR BERNIE
SANDERS THE SPAN OF POSSIBLE OUTCOMES WAS RELATIVELY SHORT.
IS THERE ANYTHING IN THAT THAT GIVES US SOME INSIGHT HOW THESE
CANDIDATES MIGHT FARE LATER IN THE EVENING?
>>THAT’S ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. THERE SEEMS TO BE VERY LITTLE
VARIATION IN BERNIE SANDERS’ RESULTS IN THE TOWNSHIPS WE’VE
SEEN SO FAR. HE’S DOING AS WELL AS THE MODEL WOULD THINK HE WAS
IN BASICALLY ALL TOWNSHIPS. PETE BUTTIGIEG AND AMY KLOBUCHAR SEEM
TO BE DOING QUITE WELL IN SOME TOWNSHIPS AND NOT AS WELL IN
SOME OF THESE OTHER TOWNSHIPS, SO BASICALLY THE VARIATION IS
HIGHER. SO THE MODEL THINKS THAT THEY’RE PROBABLY GOING TO
PERFORM WORSE THAN BERNIE SANDERS BUT DO THINK THERE’S AN
OUTSIDE CHANCE THEY MIGHT PERFORM EXCEEDINGLY WELL
TONIGHT. >>THESE ARE THE KINDS OF THINGS
WE’VE WATCHED IN THE STUDIO AND FOR MORE WE’LL KICK IT OUT TO RHONDA IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
RHONDA? >>Reporter: WE ARE STILL AT
THE AMY KLOBUCHAR PARTY. IT’S A VERY LIVELY GROUP. I HAVE WITH
ME AMY KLOBUCHAR SUPPORTER CHRIS CODY, A NEW HAMPSHIRE RESIDENT,
HAS LIVED IN CONCORD THE LAST FEW YEARS, CHRIS, YOU TOLD ME
OFF CAMERA YOU WERE FIRST A SUPPORTER OF PETE BUTTIGIEG.
>>I WAS. >>Reporter: YOU CHANGED YOUR
MIND LAST MINUTE. TELL ME WHAT CHANGED YOUR MIND.
>>THE LAST DEBATE I REALLY LOVED. I THINK SHE’S REALLY
SMART. I JUST REALLY LIKE HER TEMPERAMENT WHICH I THINK IS
REALLY IMPORTANT IN PART OF THE DEBATE COMING UP WITH THE
PRESIDENT. SO AMY, YEAH, SHE’S BEEN MINE.
>>Reporter: IS THERE AN ISSUE THAT SHE TALKED ABOUT THAT
RESONATES WITH YOU? >>CLIMATE CHANGE IS DEFINITELY
ONE OF THOSE THINGS THAT I’M DEFINITELY ON BOARD WITH AMY
FOR, YEAH. >>Reporter: I’VE HEARD THAT A
LOT FROM OTHER NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTERS, THAT IT’S CLIMATE CHANGE
AND ALSO HEALTHCARE. >>HEALTHCARE IS THE OTHER ONE,
YEAH, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. >>Reporter: NOW YOU TOLD ME
ALSO OFF CAMERA THAT YOU WANTED TO MEET HER WHILE SHE WAS IN
TOWN CAMPAIGNING. TELL ME A LITTLE BIT OF, YOU KNOW, YOU MET
HER, WAS IT YESTERDAY? >>WAS A COUPLE DAYS AGO. SHE’S
STAYING IN THE HOTEL NEXT TO MY WORK. I KIND OF DID A LITTLE
LIKE HEY, KNOCKING ON THE DOOR WHEN SHE WAS DOING A PRIVATE
ROUNDTABLE AND SHE WAS SO NICE. SHE CAME AND OPENED THE DOOR AND
CAME OUT, GAVE US A HUG. I REALLY APPRECIATED THAT. THAT
KIND OF ALSO WITH THE DEBATE SOLIDIFIED MY VOTE.
>>Reporter: ONE THING I HEARD OVER AND OVER FROM THE WEEKEND
AND ALSO TODAY IS MOST NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTERS REALLY WANT TO
VOTE FOR SOMEONE WHO CAN BEAT DONALD TRUMP. DO YOU FEEL SHE’S
THE STRONGEST CANDIDATE BECAUSE THERE HAVE BEEN MANY PEOPLE
SAYING SHE’S NOT EXACTLY THAT STRONG TO TAKE ON THE CURRENT
PRESIDENT? >>I’M GOING TO SAY NO, BUT I DO
FEEL LIKE HER MOMENTUM IS GOING TO GO SOMEWHERE VERY SOON AND
THAT’S WHY I DID LIKE WHEN I WAS IN THE BALLOT BOX AND I LOOKED
AT IT AND I WAS LIKE YES. SO I DO THINK THERE’S SOMETHING
THAT’S GOING TO START COMING SOON, YES.
>>Reporter: AND, YOU KNOW, I KNOW A LOT OF NEW HAMPSHIRE
VOTERS ARE INDEPENDENT VOTERS. IN FACT, THE STATE HAS OVER 40%
OF INDEPENDENT VOTERS. THAT’S OVER THE NATIONAL AVERAGE. WHAT
DOES THAT SAY ABOUT NEW HAMPSHIRE? >>I LOOKED AT THE NUMBERS RIGHT
AFTER I VOTED AND 48 OR 52% OF PEOPLE WERE STILL UNDECIDED.
THAT SAYS A LOT ABOUT THIS COUNTRY. IT’S NOT JUST ABOUT
THIS STATE. THE COUNTRY IS IN A POSITION WHERE THEY’RE LOOKING
TO CREATE SOMETHING AND I THINK THAT IT’S GOING TO — I’M
HOPING. I’M HOPING FOR A DEMOCRAT. I DON’T KNOW. WE’LL SEE.
>>Reporter: CHRIS, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR SPENDING SOME TIME
WITH US. I’M GOING TO SEND THINGS TO MY COLLEAGUE JORGE
RIBAS. WHAT’S GOING ON WHERE YOU ARE?
>>Reporter: WE’RE HERE AT THE BUTTIGIEG EVENT. IT’S TOTALLY
FILLED UP NOW. I’M JOINED WITH POLITICS REPORTE CHELSEA JAYNE. I WAS TALKING TO
A VOTER WHO SAID SHE WAS SURPRISED BY KLOBUCHAR’S THIRD
PLACE. >>Reporter: THESE A LOT CLOSER
TO HIM THAN WE THOUGHT MAYBE A DAY AGO OR EVEN TODAY. WE HEARD
A LOT OF BUTTIGIEG PEOPLE WONDERING ABOUT THE KLOBACHARGE
AND I THINK IT CERTAINLY SEEMS REAL. OBVIOUSLY NOTHING IS
CERTAIN, BUT SHE’S CLOSER THAN I THINK ANYONE THOUGHT SHE WOULD
BE WHEN WE CAME TO NEW HAMPSHIRE. SO I THINK SHE’S A
THREAT TO HIM. THERE’S STILL NO REAL CLEAR FAVORITE FOR THE
MODERATE SIDE OF THE PARTY TO TAKE ON SANDERS. AS THEY
CONTINUE TO TRY TO SORT THAT OUT, BUTTIGIEG NEEDS TO HOLD OFF
EVERYONE AND THAT INCLUDES HER. >>Reporter: SO LEAVING HERE
WE’LL GO TO NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA. BOTH THOSE STATES ARE
MUCH MORE DIVERSE OBVIOUSLY THAN IOWA AND NEW HAMPSHIRE. A LOT
HAS BEEN MADE ABOUT THAT AND WHETHER BUTTIGIEG WILL STRUGGLE IN THOSE STATES. COULD
YOU TALK ABOUT THAT? WHAT DO YOU THINK IS COMING UP FOR HIM? HOW
DOES HE APPEAL TO MINORITY VOTERS?
>>I THINK THE INTERESTING THING IS WHILE HE HAS STRUGGLED WITH
BLACK VOTERS AND THAT’S OBVIOUSLY A PROBLEM IN SOUTH
CAROLINA, HE ACTUALLY HAS ONE OF THE MORE FORMIDABLE
ORGANIZATIONS IN NEVADA. HE’S VOICED HIS OWN RADIO ADS IN
SPANISH FOR SOME OF THE LATINO COMMUNITIES. THEY’VE MADE A REAL
PUSH THERE TO REACH OUT TO A LOT OF COMMUNITIES TO GET HIM
VISIBLE AND THEY’VE ALSO DONE A LOT OF WHAT THEY DID IN IOWA
WHICH IS REACH OUT TO COUNTIES THAT ARE MAYBE REPUBLICAN
LEANING, MAKE MORE INDEPENDENT HEAVY AND SAY IF YOU DON’T LIKE
TRUMP, HERE’S YOUR ALTERNATIVE. SO THEY’VE KIND OF GOT A
TWO-PRONGED APPROACH OUT THERE. IF THE ORGANIZATION PART PAYS
OFF THE WAY IT DOES IN IOWA, HE COULD BE IN GOOD SHAPE, BUT I
THINK SOUTH CAROLINA WILL BE REALLY TELLING FOR HIM BECAUSE
HE HAS STRUGGLED TO GET BLACK SUPPORT. A LOT OF THE CANDIDATES
HAVE, BUT OBVIOUSLY FOR HIM THAT’S BEEN A MORE PROMINENT
NARRATIVE. >>Reporter: HIS ATTACKS MOSTLY
HAVE FOCUSED ON BIDEN AND SANDERS. OBVIOUSLY THOSE ARE THE
TWO FRONT RUNNERS UNTIL NOW. DOES HE CHANGE HIS TACTIC AT
ALL? DOES HE GO AGAINST KLOBUCHAR? WHAT DOES HE DO? DOES
HE START IGNORING BIDEN? WHAT DOES HE DO NEXT?
>>I THINK IT WAS CLEAR THE TWO OF THEM WOULD BE VYING FOR THE
TOP SPOT. KLOBUCHAR HAS NOT BEEN AFRAID TO GO AFTER HIM. SHE HAS
BEEN PRETTY FOCUSED ON PETE IN SEVERAL DEBATES. IT’S
DEFINITELY SOMETHING THEY’LL HAVE TO TRY TO DRAW SOME
DISTINCTIONS WITH BECAUSE SHE CERTAINLY HASN’T BEEN AFRAID TO
DO THAT AND FRANKLIN, THEY HAS SOME OF THE SAME STRUGGLES HE
DOES WITH MINORITY VOTERS, DOESN’T HAVE THE TRACK RECORD.
IT COULD BE KIND OF AN INTERESTING RACE BETWEEN THOSE
TWO VERY DIFFERENT PEOPLE FOR A REALLY SIMILAR GROUP OF VOTERS.
>>Reporter: I’M HERE AT THE WARREN PARTY WITH BEN AND KATE,
TWO VOLUNTEERS FOR THE WARREN CAMPAIGN. FIRST I WANT TO KNOW
HOW YOU’RE BOTH FEELING. I’M START WITH YOU, KATE.
>>THIS HAS BEEN AN EXHAUSTING PROCESS. TAKING PART IN IT WAS
INCREDIBLY INSPIRING AND I CONTINUE TO BE INSPIRED BY
ELIZABETH AND I’M VERY GLAD I PARTICIPATED IN HER CAMPAIGN IN
NEW HAMPSHIRE. >>Reporter: THE RESULTS ARE
COMING IN, BUT IT’S LOOKING LIKE SHE’S NOT DOING NECESSARILY AS
WELL AS SHE HOPED. ARE YOU STILL HOPEFUL?
>>ABSOLUTELY. I THINK WHAT WE’RE SEEING IS IOWA AND NEW
HAMPSHIRE AREN’T NECESSARILY THE BELLWETHERS THAT WE’VE HAD IN
THE PAST AND THAT GOING FORWARD MAYBE IT’S TIME THAT ANOTHER
STATE STARTS FIRST THAT’S A LITTLE MORE REPRESENTATIVE OF
THE ACTUAL UNITED STATES. >>Reporter: SO YOU’RE A NEW
HAMPSHIREITE SAYING YOU SEE HOW YOUR CANDIDATE MIGHT HAVE BEEN
HARMED BY THIS. HOW SO? >>I DON’T THINK SHE’S
NECESSARILY HARMED BY IT, BUT I DO THINK OTHER CANDIDATES HAVE
BENEFITED FROM IT. NEW HAMPSHIRE IS VERY WHITE AND THERE’S ONE
CANDIDATE THAT DOESN’T POLL AT ALL AND IS DOING VERY WELL.
>>Reporter: WHO IS THAT CANDIDATE?
>>MAYOR PEETE. >>Reporter: BEN, YOU’RE HAVING
A BUCKET LIST ITEM BEING INTERVIEWED YOU SAID EARLIER.
HOW ARE YOU FEELING TONIGHT? >>EXCELLENT. THE END’S IN
SIGHT, WHICH WILL BE TOMORROW MORNING. IT’S LIKE I’M SO TIRED.
I’VE BEEN DOING THIS SINCE JUNE, KNOCKING DOORS SINCE JUNE,
ALMOST 3,000 DOORS, AND THINKING ABOUT THE FACT THAT I’LL NOT BE
DOING THAT IN A COUPLE DAYS IS REALLY KIND OF WEIRD BECAUSE I
HAVE JUST BEEN ALL OUT FOR WARREN
SINCE APRIL. THEY GOT AHOLD OF ME AND SAID WOULD YOU LIKE TO
WORK FOR US AND I SAID OKAY AND I SAID CAN I CANVAS IN MAY AND
THEY SAID WE’RE NOT STARTING TILL JUNE. SO I WAS ALL IN FOR
HER DAY ONE. >>Reporter: YOU’RE SUCH A HARD
CORE WARREN FAN, ARE YOU NOT A LITTLE MORE DISAPPOINTED? IT
DOESN’T SEEM SHE’LL EVEN GET A THIRD PLACE TONIGHT.
>>I’M VERY CONFIDENT IN THE ORGANIZATION AND THE SKILL OF
HER TEAM AND WHERE THEY’RE GOING AND HER MESSAGE, WHICH IS TOP
NOTCH, AND THE RIGHT MESSAGE FOR THE COUNTRY.
>>Reporter: SO YOU THINK HER STRATEGY OF SORT OF CLAWING
DELEGATES FROM ALL PARTS OF THE COUNTRY, IS THAT AN INSPIRING
MESSAGE DO YOU THINK FOR GAINING SUPPORTERS AND DONORS?
>>YEAH. I THINK WE SAW THIS WEEK SOME OF HER IOWA STAFFERS
DEPLOYED TO PLACES LIKE MISSOURI WHERE I ASSUME THAT CANDIDATES
DON’T NECESSARILY CAMPAIGN AND I TRUST IN THE VISION OF WHERE WE ARE GOING FORWARD. HER
ORGANIZATION IS TOP NOTCH. IT WAS THE MOST ORGANIZED CAMPAIGN
I’VE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE AND HER STAFFERS ARE JUST THE
BEST THAT I’VE EVER SEEN. HER CAMPAIGN MANAGER HERE IN THE
STATE IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST STAFFERS IN THE GAME.
>>Reporter: YOU SAID THAT MAYOR PETE BUTTIGIEG HAS BEEN
DOING VERY WELL. I’M CURIOUS WHY YOU THINK THERE IS A LITTLE
OVERLAP, IF YOU THINK THERE IS, BETWEEN THESE CANDIDATES WHICH
HAVE SUCH RADICALLY DIFFERENT PLATFORMS.
>>I THINK BOTH CANDIDATES ARE INCREDIBLY INSPIRING AND THAT’S
WHERE THEY HAVE THEIR OVERLAP. THEY’RE ALSO BOTH TALKING ABOUT
CHANGE. PETE AND ELIZABETH ARE BOTH CHANGE CANDIDATES. PETE IS
GENERATIONAL CHANGE. HE’S YOUNGER. ELIZABETH WAS MORE OF
THIS CHANGE SPECIFICALLY GEARED TOWARDS HELPING THE MIDDLE CLASS
AND FIGHTING CORRUPTION AND I THINK IN BOTH INSTANCES IT
REALLY RESONATES WITH VOTERS. >>Reporter: BEN, DID YOU HAVE
SOMETHING TO ADD ABOUT THE BUTTIGIEG QUESTION? I WANT TO
MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR BUCKET LIST EXPERIENCE JUST HOW YOU
WANT IT. YOU’VE KNOCKED ON 4,000 DOORS. WHAT DOES YOU FIND? WERE
PEOPLE NOT AS INTERESTED AS YOU HOPED?
>>NO. I THOUGHT THERE WAS A LOT OF FOLKS WHO WERE VERY
INTERESTED. THE STATE IS VERY ENGAGED IN THE PROCESS. NEW
HAMPSHIRE WAS RIGHT OUT THERE. A LOT OF PEOPLE WANTED TO TALK TO
ME ABOUT THINGS. IT WAS A LOT OF FUN.
>>Reporter: I’M SORRY TO CUT YOU OFF. I HOPE YOU HAD A
WONDERFUL TIME. WE HAVE TO THROW IT BACK TO YOU GUYS.
>>THANKS FOR. THAT WE’RE REALLY EXCITED BECAUSE WE’VE GOT
ADDITIONAL VOTES TONIGHT. I WANT TO CAUTION WE’RE RUNNING A
LITTLE BEHIND WHERE WE’VE BEEN IN PREVIOUS YEARS. WE HAD MORE
VOTES AT THIS POINT IN THE NIGHT THAN WE HAVE NOW, BUT IT’S NOT
ANYTHING LIKE IOWA. WE’RE AT 38% REPORTING AND WE’VE
GOT THOSE 24 DELEGATES THAT ARE UP AT STAKE. WE’RE TAKING A LOOK
AT THIS MAP AND WE’RE SEEING THE BERNIE SANDERS PURPLE IS
COVERING A LOT OF THE STATE, BUT SOMETHING IMPORTANT HAS HAPPENED
SINCE LAST TIME WE TALKED AND THAT IS MAYOR PETE BUTTIGIEG HAS
PULLED AHEAD A LITTLE BIT HERE IN ROCKINGHAM. SO YOU CAN TELL
THE NUMBERS AREN’T THAT HYPE, BUT HE WAS RUNNING ABOUT A POINT
BEHIND BERNIE SANDERS THE LAST TIME WE CHATTED. NOW HE’S
RUNNING A LITTLE UNDER A POINT AHEAD OF HIM. THIS ISN’T
THAT FAR OUT OF THE ORDINARY. A LITTLE BIT EARLIER WE HEARD
MAYOR PETE HAS A BUILT IN BASE OF SUPPORT AND HE’S BEEN
SNEAKING VOTERS AWAY FROM THE 2016 HILLARY CLINTON CAMP AS
WELL AS PULLING FROM THE OLD 26 BERNIE SANDERS CAMP. NOW THERE’S
SOME OTHER THINGS I’D LIKE TO SHOW YOU ABOUT ON THIS MAP I
THINK ARE A LITTLE BIT INTERESTING. HERE IN THE CITY OF
MANCHESTER WE’RE SEEING ABOUT 40% REPORTING. WE’VE GOT BERNIE
SANDERS WITH 28% OF THE VOTE. HE’S REALLY FAR OUT IN FRONT,
BUT WE’RE EXPECTING A LOT OF VOTES TO COME IN THIS AREA STILL
AND IT’S LIKELY THAT SANDERS IS NOT GOING TO HOLD THIS LEAD
ENTIRELY. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS TRUE ABOUT A LOT OF ELECTIONS
IS THAT RURAL AREAS TEND TO COUNT FASTER AND URBAN AREAS
TEND TO COUNT A LOT SLOWER. SO WE SEE A REALLY PRONOUNCED
URBAN/RURAL DIVIDE. WHAT THAT MEANS TONIGHT IS BERNIE SANDERS’
VOTES WILL COUNT A LOT FASTER THAN THE VOTES FROM MORE
ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATES LIKE PETE BUTTIGIEG OR TONIGHT AMY
KLOBUCHAR. FOR A LITTLE MORE INSIGHT ON THAT SETUP WE’LL TALK
TO LENNY BRAUNER, SENIOR DATA SCIENTIST ON OUR ELECTION IN
SIGHTS TEAM. WHAT ARE YOU SEEING IN YOUR RESULTS SINCE LAST TIME
WE TALKED? >>APPROXIMATELY 40% OF
PRECINCTS ARE REPORTING, BUT THAT DOESN’T TRANSLATE QUITE SO
NEATLY INTO TOWNSHIPS, APPROXIMATELY 25% OF TOWNSHIPS
REPORTING. OUR MODEL STARTS TO CALIBRATE A BIT AND STARTS TO
LOOK A BIT BETTER AND IS MORE TRUST WORTHY. LIKE I SAID LAST
TIME, IT DOES LOOK CLOSER THAN THE RAW TOTALS WOULD SUGGEST.
THE REALLY INTERESTING TAKE-AWAY I THINK IS PETE BUTTIGIEG SEEMS
TO BE REALLY TAKING FROM BOTH CAMPS FROM 2016, SEEMS TO BE
GETTING SUPPORTERS WHO SUPPORTED BERNIE SANDERS FOUR YEARS AGO
AND PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED HILLARY CLINTON FOUR YEARS AGO. THAT’S
QUITE SURPRISING TO ME. >>THAT IS AN INTERESTING TREND
AND ONE WE’LL KEEP AN EYE ON. FOR MORE ON THAT LET’S TALK TO
DAVID BYLER, A POST OPINIONS COLUMNIST AND DATA EXPERT.
DAVID, WHAT ARE YOU SEEING IN THE LATEST BATCH OF RESULTS
THAT’S CAUGHT YOUR EYE? WHAT ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT WHEN IT COMES
TO HOW THE CANDIDATES AND CAMPAIGNS ARE PERFORMING
TONIGHT? MOO >>TWO THINGS RIGHT OFF THE TOP. KLOBUCHAR IS
DOING VERY WELL AND WARREN IS NOT DOING AS WELL. IF WE DRILL
DOWN DEEPER, BERNIE SANDERS, PETE BUTTIGIEG AND AMY KLOBUCHAR
ARE AHEAD. BERNIE SANDERS IS THE ONLY ONE OF THESE THREE WHO HAS
CONSISTENTLY SHOWED DECENT POLLING WITH NONWHITE VOTERS,
THE SCENARIO THAT KLOBUCHAR AND BUTTIGIEG HAVE HAD A LOT OF
TROUBLE WITH. IF THOSE THREE MANAGE TO MAKE IT OUT THAT, MAY
END UP BEING A GOOD STATE OF AFFAIRS FOR SANDERS IF HE CAN BE
IN FIRST. >>THAT’S TRUE BECAUSE THE NEXT
STATES COMING, NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA, ARE PLACES WHERE THERE
ARE MORE NONWHITE VOTERS THAN THESE FAIRLY NONREPRESENTATIVE
STATES OF NEW HAMPSHIRE AND IOWA. IS THERE ANYTHING IN THESE
RESULTS THAT YOU THINK IS THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO SHOULD MAYBE CALL
IT QUITS AFTER TONIGHT? ARE THERE FOLKS WHERE WILDLY
UNDERPERFORMING WHO MAYBE SHOULD GIVE IT UP?
>>YEAH. WE’VE ALREADY SEEN ANDREW YANG GIVE UP AND CALL IT
QUITS. WE’VE SEEN MICHAEL BENNET. I WOULDN’T BE SURPRISED
IF WE SAW DEVAL PATRICK FOLLOW SUIT. I WOULD BE INTERESTED WHAT
WARREN DOES IN THE NEXT COUPLE WEEKS BECAUSE IOWA AND NEW
HAMPSHIRE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE HER EXCELLENT STATES. SHE’S MADE
SIGNALS ABOUT STICKING IT OUT, BUT I WOULD BE INTERESTED TO SEE
WHERE SHE GOES. PETE BUTTIGIEG IS KEEPING HIS CAMPAIGN ALIVE
WITH THESE STRONG FINISHES, SAME WITH KLOBUCHAR. JOE BIDEN
DOESN’T HAVE ANY REASON NOT TO STICK IT OUT TO SOUTH CAROLINA,
BUT IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHERE HIS SUPPORT GOES AND
IF HE SORT OF LIMPS ALONG OR IF HE HAS SOME KIND OF RESURGENCE
OR RESILIENCE. >>FABULOUS. THANK YOU A LOT FOR
THAT, DAVID, AND ALSO YOU, LENNY. YOU ALL’S INSIGHT HAS
BEEN INVALUABLE AND WE’LL CONTINUE HAVING MORE OF THAT
INSIGHT THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. FOR NOW WE’LL TOSS IT BACK TO
LIBBY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. LIBBY? >>THANK YOU SO MUCH, JEREMY.
I’M WITH MY GUESTS AMBER PHILLIPS AND JAMES HOHMANN.
ANDREW YANG OUT, MICHAEL BENNET ALSO OUT. LET’S TALK MORE ABOUT
THESE CANDIDATES WHO ARE BOWING OUT OR BEING CLOSELY WATCHED.
THEY’VE GOT TO GET ON THE BOARD IN SOME WAY TONIGHT TO PERFORM.
WE HEARD FROM OUR COLLEAGUES REPORTING ON ANDREW YANG THAT
HE’S NOT ENDORSING ANYBODY YET BUT HAS HIS EARS OPEN TO PEOPLE
AND REGRETS GOING SO BIG IN IOWA. THERE’S JUST A QUESTION OF
DID CANDIDATES SINK TOO MUCH INTO A STATE THAT WAS SORT OF A
MESS, BUT YANG, JAMES, PUT IT A TON OF RESOURCES HERE INTO NEW
HAMPSHIRE. >>HE DID, LIBBY. HE WENT TO
PHILLIPS EXETER ACADEMY. HE SPENT A LOT OF TIME HERE. HE HAD
QUITE A LARGE STAFF. HE WORKED IT REALLY HARD ON COLLEGE
CAMPUSES AND IT JUST DIDN’T WORK. I THINK AS AMBER MADE THE
POINT EARLIER, PEOPLE LIKED HIM. THEY DIDN’T LOVE HIM AND THEY
DIDN’T WANT HIM TO BE THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE, ESPECIALLY
AFTER DONALD TRUMP, I THINK THE IDEA OF TAKING A CHANCE ON
SOMEONE WITH NO PRIOR ELECTED OFFICE ISN’T WHERE THE
DEMOCRATIC ELECTORATE IS RIGHT NOW.
>>I TALKED TO A FORMER DEMOCRATIC CONGRESSMAN PAUL
HOEDES AND HE WAS SAYING VOTERS AREN’T CHOOSING SOMEONE BASED ON
CHARACTER. [ AUDIO DIFFICULTIES ]
>>THEY’RE NOT SOMEONE WITH CHARISMA LIKE OKAY, I WANT TO BE
PRESENT. THEY’RE TRYING TO MAKE A CALCULATION. THAT’S A VERY
DIFFERENT DECISION. SO ANDREW YANG IS THIS PERSON WHO IS THIS
CHARACTER, BUT HE HASN’T BEEN SOMEONE THAT COULD BE PRESIDENT.
>>LET’S GO NOW TO RHONDA COLVIN.
>>Reporter: I’M HERE WITH OUR COLLEAGUE, ALEXANDER PETRY WHO
IS ATTENDING THE KLOBUCHAR PARTY AND DOING SOME REPORTING HERE.
WHAT HAVE YOU BEEN SEEING AT SOME OF HER OTHER EVENTS? WHAT
STOOD OUT TO YOU? >>ESPECIALLY COMPARED TO THE
BIDEN EVENT I ALSO WENT TO, THERE WAS SORT OF JOY IN THE
ROOM AND LIKE SHE WAS MAKING PUNS AND JOKED ABOUT BUILDING A
BRIDGE TO THE FUTURE, RIPPING ON THE ENERGY OF THE CROWD, JOKING
ABOUT DONALD TRUMP IN SORT OF TALKING ABOUT HOW HE WAS
COMPLAINING TO THE PRESIDENT OF CANADA ABOUT CUTTING HIM OUT OF
THE HOME ALONE MOVIE GOING WHO DOES THAT? PEOPLE I TALKED TO
WERE SORT OF ENTHUSED BY HER. IT WASN’T THE MOST UPLIFTING
RHETORIC POSSIBLE, BUT THEY THOUGHT I FOUND A PERSON WHO I
LIKED IS WHAT I WAS HEARING. >>Reporter: OUR COLLEAGUE
JENNA JOHNSON TOLD US HER JOKES PLAYED VERY WELL HERE IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE. YOU’RE SEEING THAT AS WELL, PEOPLE SORT OF ATTRACTED
TO HER STYLE, HER PERSONALITY. I BELIEVE THEY’RE GETTING SOME
REPORTING NOW ABOUT KLOBUCHAR. WE’RE HEARING SOME COLLAPSE IN
THE CROWD, BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SAYING SHE MIGHT BE POPULAR
HERE, BUT WILL SHE BE POPULAR IN THE NEXT STATE A. WILL SHE BE
POPULAR IN NEVADA OR SOUTH CAROLINA? DO YOU THINK THAT
PERSONALITY THAT YOU’VE SEEN HERE WILL TRANSITION INTO THOSE
OTHER STATES? >>IT’S DIFFICULT TO KNOW, BUT I
FEEL LIKE WITH KLOBUCHAR IT WAS ONE OF THOSE THINGS YOU’RE
TRAVELING IN YOUR SUITCASE AND THINK YOU ONLY HAVE FOUR CLEAN
PAIRS OF SOCKS AND SUDDENLY YOU NOTICE THERE’S A FIFTH PAIR OF
SOCKS. I DON’T HAVE TO GO TO THE PLACE WHERE THEY GET NEW SOCKS
ANYMORE. SO PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT’S THE EXCITING FIFTH PAIR
OF SOCKS. SHE COULD BE THAT IN NEVADA AS WELL.
>>Reporter: HAVE YOU TALKED TO ANY NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTERS DURING
YOUR TIME HERE AND WHAT HAVE THEY BEEN SAYING?
>>THE PEOPLE I TALKED TO AT HER RALLY DROVE UP FROM ALABAMA AND
THEY’VE DONE IT EVERY YEAR — NOT EVERY YEAR BUT EVERY THREE
YEARS. THEY’D BE LIKE WHAT’S GOING ON, WHY IS THERE NO
PRIMARY HAPPENING BUT EVERY FOUR YEARS AND THEY WERE JUST LIKE WE
FOUND OUR CANDIDATE. WE’RE EXCITED. THEY’RE NOT FROM NEW
HAMPSHIRE AND THEY WERE STOKED. IF SHE CAN HANG ONTO A FEW MORE
STATES, THERE’S A CHANCE. IF MORE PEOPLE VOTE FOR HER THAN
THE OTHERS, SHE CAN PREVAIL. >>Reporter: THANKS VERY MUCH.
I’M GOING TO SEND THINGS NOW TO JOYCE KOH. JOYCE?
>>Reporter: HEY, RHONDA. I’M AT THE BERNIE SANDERS LAUNCH
PARTY. I HAVE ELLEN HERE FROM HOPKINSSON, NEW HAMPSHIRE. ELLEN
HAS BEEN SUPPORTING BERNIE SANDERS SINCE 2016. >>>YOU BEEN >>TO BE BRAVE, TAKE CHANCES, OPEN YOUR HOME AND YOUR
HEART, TO THESE PEOPLE, THAT IT DOES MATTER, THAT, THESE YOUNG
STAFFERS, THEY ARE GOING TO INHERIT THIS PLANET, THIS COUNTRY. ANYTHING THAT I
CAN DO TO SUPPORT THEIR EFFORTS, TO MAKE THIS THE
COUNTRY THEY WANT TO LIVE IN. THRIVE, AND GROW IN.
>> YOU CALLED THE EXPERIENCE
LIFE-CHANGING, WHY IS THAT? >>LIFE-CHANGING IN THAT, THE RETURN ON THIS
INVESTMENT OF A FEW ROOMS IN MY HOME, AND AS MANY GROCERIES
AS I CAN SHOVE A THUMB. THE REWARD HAS JUST BEEN TENFOLD. THEIR EXCITEMENT,
THEIR ENERGY, THEY ARE TEACHING ME. IT’S —
>>YOU’RE SPEECHLESS. >>I AM. I TRULY AM. I HAVE JUST BEEN
FEEDING ON THEIR ENERGY. YEAH. I FEEL LIKE
I HAVE INHERITED A FEW MORE KIDS A
FEW MORE CHILDREN WHO WILL FOREVER BE A PART OF MY FAMILY.
THEY ARE A PART OF MY FAMILY. >>HOW EXCITING IS IT HERE FOR YOU? OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE ARE
CHEERING BECAUSE CNN IS ON THIS, BEHIND US AND PEOPLE ARE REALLY
CHEERING FOR THE PRESENCE HERE,
>>AMAZING. AMAZING. I’M STILL THRILLED I’M NOT SHOCKED, OVER THE LAST FEW
WEEKS BUT IT FEELS AWESOME. THE HARD WORK IS PAYING OFF, THE
GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT IS PAYING OFF. PEOPLE FEEL HEARD. PEOPLE HAVE A VOICE, HAVE AN
IMPACT. AND THEY FEEL IT. I THINK — THEY FEEL IT, I FEEL
IT. I DON’T THINK I WILL EVER BE COMPLACENT AGAIN. I FEEL LIKE IT
DOES MATTER, WHAT I CAN CONTRIBUTE AS A VOLUNTEER,
WHATEVER I CAN DO, IT REALLY DOES MATTER. AND, I AM SO SO
HONORED, THAT I WAS ASKED TO DO THIS, AND — YEAH, AND MY CYNICISM ABOUT
POLITICS, IT REALLY DOES — HAS CHANGED MY
PERSPECTIVE. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING
US, ALAN. A LOT OF EXCITEMENT HERE AT THE BERNIE SANDERS
CAMPAIGN, IT’S LOOKING LIKE IT COULD BE A VERY GOOD NIGHT FOR
HIM. I’LL SEND THINGS OVER TO YOU IN STUDIO, JEREMY.
>>THANKS FOR THAT. >>>YOU KNOW, WE HAVE HAD MORE
INTERESTING INSIGHTS FOR YOU. IT IS NOT JUST LIVE VOTES AND ANALYSIS
WE HAVE BUT ALSO MORE ABOUT EXIT POLLING. FOR MORE ON THAT I
WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE OUR POLLING ANALYST EMILY GASKIN.
EMILY, TELL US ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH AMY KLOBUCHAR. IT
LOOKS LIKE SHE IS DOING EXCEEDINGLY WELL TONIGHT. SHE IS
IN THIRD PLACE OVERALL, IS THERE SOMETHING IN THE EXIT POLL THAT
EXPLAINS HER RISE? >>WE HAVE SEEN HER DOING PRETTY
WELL, IN A FEW INTERESTING GROUPS IN ONE OF THOSE GROUPS,
PEOPLE WHO ATTEND RELIGIOUS SERVICES WEEKLY.
ACCORDING TO EARLY EXIT POLLS SHE IS GETTING ABOUT THREE IN 10
OF THOSE LETTERS WHICH WHEN YOU BREAK DOWN EVERYTHING BY SO MANY
CANDIDATES IS A PRETTY LARGE CHUNK. SHE IS ALSO DOING WELL
AMONG LATE DECIDERS, THERE IS A LARGE SHARE OF LATE DECIDERS
ACCORDING TO THIS EARLY EXIT POLLING. SHE IS SPLITTING THOSE BOATERS
WITH PEOPLE TO JUDGE FOR THE MOST PART, SHE IS DOING WELL
AMONG THAT GROUP AND SHE’S ALSO DOING VERY WELL AMONG SENIORS 65
AND OLDER WHICH WE KNOW, OLDER PEOPLE TEND TO SHOW UP AND VOTE
ON ELECTION DAYS. >>WELL, FOR MORE ABOUT THAT,
DAVID, OUR POST-OPINION ANALYST, WHAT ARE YOU SEEING IN THESE
KLOBUCHAR NUMBERS, WHAT DOES IT TELL YOU ABOUT THE PATH FORWARD TO SOUTH CAROLINA?
>>THESE NUMBERS ARE REALLY INTERESTING. IF YOU THINGS ABOUT
KLOBUCHAR. HER OLDER VOTERS SUGGESTS SHE MAY BE SIPHONING
SOME OFF FROM JOE BIDEN. THE CANDIDATE HAS BEEN DOING WELL
WITH OLDER VOTERS FOR THE ENTIRETY OF THE PRIMARY AND THAT
THE GROUP THAT DOES NOT ALWAYS GET INTO BERNIE SANDERS CAMP AT
SOMEONE THAT SHE COULD EXPAND HER COALITION WITH. LATE
DECIDERS ALSO MAKE SENSE, SHE HAD A GOOD DEBATE PERFORMANCE A
FEW DAYS EARLIER. YOU GETTING THAT SURGE THAT MANY PEOPLE
PREDICT IN IOWA THAT DIDN’T REALLY MATERIALIZE. I’M ALSO
INTERESTED IN THE RELIGIOUS MEMBERS, BECAUSE IN
THE PAST ELECTIONS, AMY KLOBUCHAR HAS A REPUTATION FOR
WINNING OUTSIDE OF THE DEMOCRATIC FOLD, POSTING HIGHER MARGINS THAN
PEOPLE WHO ARE AT THE TOP OF THE TICKET. SO, I AM WONDERING IF
THAT PATTERN ENDS UP THROUGH THE PRIMARIES AS WELL.
>>YOU KNOW, THOSE THINGS ARE REALLY FASCINATING BUT ONE THING
ON MY MIND HAS BEEN, WHAT IS HAPPENING TO JOE BIDEN? IT LOOKS
LIKE THOSE NUMBERS ARE DOWN QUITE A BIT FROM THE INITIAL
POLLS. WAS THERE ANYTHING, EMILY, IN THOSE EXIT POLLS, TO
TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED TO JOE BIDEN TONIGHT?
>>ONE THING DAVID MENTIONED, AND WE HAVE SEEN IN EXIT
POLLING, ACTUALLY, IS THAT 65+ GROUP. HE DID NOT GET THAT MUCH
SUPPORT FROM THE SENIOR VOTERS. ABOUT ONE IN 10 PULLED FOR HIM.
ALSO, FOREIGN POLICY VOTERS. HE PULLED IN 43 PERCENT OF THEM IN
IOWA, CAUCUS GOERS, AND IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, HE IS ONLY GETTING
ABOUT TWO IN 10. SO, THAT IS NOT AS GOOD
AS HE DID IN IOWA. ALSO, AMONG VOTERS WHO WANT TO RETURN TO
OBAMA’S POLICIES, YOU WOULD THINK THAT WOULD BE A REALLY
STRONG GROUP FOR BIDEN, SINCE HE IS RUNNING AS THE OBAMA
CANDIDATE, AND THEY ARE NOT PULLING FOR HIM IN AS LARGE
NUMBERS AS ONE WOULD EXPECT. LET’S SEE. I CAN’T READ MY
NOTES. MORE OF THEM ARE GOING TO KLOBUCHAR AND
PEOPLE TO JUDGE, THEN WERE GOING.
>>WHAT IS FASCINATING, DAVID, YOU KNOW, WE ARE WATCHING THIS
CAMPAIGN HAVE TROUBLE BUT IT LOOKS LIKE THERE MIGHT BE
STRENGTH AHEAD, WE HAVE NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA WHERE THERE
IS A HIGH PROPORTION OF NONWHITE VOTERS. WHAT IS THE BIDEN CAMP
SEEING IN FRONT OF THEM THAT MAY BE BRINGS A BIT OF HAPPINESS, OR
LEVITY, TO A CAMPAIGN THAT SEEMS A BIT UNHAPPY?
>>WE ACTUALLY HAVE SOME SURVEY DATA FROM NEVADA AND FROM SOUTH
CAROLINA, BIDEN HAD TAKEN THESE HITS AND GENERALLY DOES WELL IN THOSE STATES
BECAUSE THEY HAVE MORE DIVERSE ELECTORATES, ELECTORATES WITH A
NUMBER OF MODERATE VOTERS. PEOPLE ASSOCIATE HIM STRONGLY WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA
WHO IS AN EXTREMELY POPULAR FIGURE IN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY. SO, WHEN BIDEN PASSES THROUGH
MORE FRIENDLY AND FAMILIAR TERRITORY GOING FORWARD BUT I’M
INTERESTED TO SEE WHETHER OR NOT THAT ACTUALLY HOLDS UP.
ELECTABILITY HAS BEEN ONE OF BIDEN’S KEY SELLING POINTS BOTH
IN THE POLLS AND ON STUMP, HE ALLUDES
TO IT OR EVEN TALKS ABOUT IT DIRECTLY OFTEN TIMES. IT WILL BE
INTERESTING TO SEE IF HE LOSES TWO ELECTIONS IN A ROW, DEVOTED
STILL THINK HE IS ELECTABLE. THAT’S AN OPEN QUESTION.
>>ALL RIGHT, WE HAVE RESULTS FOR YOU COMING UP BUT IN THE
MEANTIME, WE WILL TAKE YOU BACK TO NEW HAMPSHIRE. LIBBY, THIS IS
FOR YOU. >>THANKS SO MUCH JEREMY I AM
HERE WITH MY GUEST CHIEF HILLMAN AND AMBER PHILLIPS, WE’VE BEEN HEARING FROM POLLS
AND THINGS LIKE THAT LET’S TALK DELEGATES, HOW IMPORTANT ARE THE
DELEGATES OUT OF NEW HAMPSHIRE? >>IT DOES CONTRIBUTE TO
MOMENTUM, ELIZABETH WARREN SAID IN HER OWN SPEECH. THIS COULD BE A DEVIL DELICATE CONTEST THAT
LASTS INTO THE CONVENTION POINT MICHAEL BLOOMBERG WHO HAS
LITERALLY SPENT HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR VOTES ON SUPER TUESDAY. THE FIELD DOES
STAY AS DIVIDED AS IT IS, ELIZABETH WARREN KEEPS
COMPETING, THE DELEGATES COULD BE DIVIDED. THAT COULD ALLOW
SOMEONE LIKE BERNIE SANDERS TO DO WHAT DONALD TRUMP DID IN 2017
EVEN IF HE DOES NOT WANT — THE PARTY DOES NOT
WANT HIM HE MIGHT GET THE VOTES TO SURPASS ITS POSSIBLE SANDERS
UNDERPERFORMS BUT HE COULD STILL GET A LOT OF DELEGATES AND WE
ARE GETTING SOME INFORMATION. EDISON RESEARCH, WHICH IS THE
COMPANY RUNNING THE EXIT POLLING PROJECTS BASED ON AN ANALYSIS OF
THE RETURNS, THAT BECAUSE THEY DID NOT GET TO
15 PERCENT, NEITHER JOE BIDEN, NOR ELIZABETH WARREN ARE GOING
TO GET ANY DELEGATES AT ALL FROM NEW HAMPSHIRE. SO THEY’RE COMING
AWAY WITH NO DELEGATES. I THINK THAT IS A GUT PUNCH. RECALLED
IOWA BASED ON DELEGATES, NOT BASED ON POPULAR VOTE, IT DOES
MATTER. WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT HOW MUCH TIME ELIZABETH WARREN HAS
BEEN HERE AND SHE LAID IN THE POLLS LAST YEAR HOW MUCH MONEY
SHE INVESTED HERE, TO EMERGE WITHOUT A SINGLE DELEGATE IS
REALLY A BODY BLOW FOR WARREN’S CAMPAIGN.
>>SHE’S FROM A NEIGHBORING STATE. I MEAN, A LOT OF THE
MEDIA MARKET IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, WE HAVE DENSE VOTER POPULATION AREAS. FROM BOSTON TO
HEAR ABOUT ELIZABETH WARREN AND WHAT SHE IS DOING ON CAPITOL
HILL. IT IS JUST — I SAID COMING INTO THIS, LIBBY, I THINK
SHE HAS THE MOST TO LOSE TONIGHT, BECAUSE I DON’T SEE HOW
SHE SPINS NOT WINNING ANY DELEGATES, IF THAT IS INDEED
WHAT HAPPENS. JOE BIDEN CAN SAY, I WAS NEVER MEANT TO
COMPETE HERE, SOUTH CAROLINA IS WHERE I’M REALLY GOING TO FLEX
MY MUSCLE, I DON’T KNOW WHAT WARREN SAYS.
>>IT’S NOT CLEAR WHERE ELIZABETH WARREN WINS IF NOT NEW
HAMPSHIRE. THE HISTORY OF SUPPORT FOR HER HERETO. NO
DEMOCRATS IN MODERN HISTORY HAVE WON THE NOMINATION WITHOUT
FINISHING FIRST OR SECOND IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. AND, OBVIOUSLY ANYTHING CAN
HAPPEN, BUT I THINK IF YOU ARE LOOKING AT JOE BIDEN, YOU’RE
LOOKING AT KLOBUCHAR, THIS IS A SITUATION WHERE THE MONEY WILL
DRY UP AND IT BECOMES VERY HARD FOR THEM. IF YOU’RE A VOTER IN
THE NEVADA CAUCUSES, SATURDAY AFTER NEXT, ARE YOU GOING TO
VOTE FOR WARREN? OR ARE YOU GOING TO VOTE FOR ONE OF THE TOP
FOUR FINISHERS >>. WE HAVE TWO OR THREE OTHER CHOICES. HER CAMPAIGN
TRIED TO PUT A POSITIVE SPIN ON THIS BEFORE THE RESULTS WERE
EVEN CAST, WE HEARD ANNIE LINDSAY TALK ABOUT THIS FROM
LAWRENCE A QUARTER AND THEY SAID LISTEN, THEY POINT OUT THAT
SOMETHING LIKE 95 PERCENT OF THE DELEGATES HAVE YET TO BE
DECIDED, THIS IS A LONG CAMPAIGN. IT WILL WARREN IN HER
SPEECH ALLUDED TO THE FACT THAT SHE IS IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL,
SHE WILL TRY TO BE THE COMMUNITY CANDIDATE. HER CAMPAIGN ALSO
PREDICTED THAT SHE IS GOING TO GET WITHIN THE TOP TWO OR THREE
OF EVERY SINGLE SUPER TUESDAY STATE, 14 STATES AND A COUPLE
OTHER TERRITORIES. HOW DOES SHE DO THAT WITHOUT THE MONEY OR MOMENTUM? BECAUSE, SHE IS NOT
TAKING TIME OFF THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL TO DO FUNDRAISERS. SHE IS
MAKING THIS PURCHASE FOR ELIZABETH WARREN AND SO FAR, SHE HAS BEEN RAISING MONEY DOING
THAT BUT IT WAS BASED OFF THIS PROMISE OF WHO SHE WILL BE AND
HOW SHE WILL WIN. >>THAT’S RIGHT, THAT MOMENTUM
NOT ONLY EAGLES VOTES, IT ALSO EQUALS MONEY.
>>WE ARE SEEING CANDIDATES, WE HAVE HAD AN OFF THE RECORD SENSE
OF HOW THE CANDIDATES WERE DOING BUT NOW THEY ARE SENDING THEIR
SCHEDULES AND MAKING THEIR FINAL DECISIONS. KLOBUCHAR TOMORROW GOING FOR A FUNDRAISER TO NEW
YORK CITY. PETE BUTTIGIEG GOING TO INDIANA FOR A FUNDRAISER
TOMORROW AND THEN GOING TO CALIFORNIA FOR A FUNDRAISER IN
SAN FRANCISCO AND PALO ALTO, YOU KNOW, THEY WANT TO GET CASH OFF
THE SUCCESS TO GIVE THE CAMPAIGN GOING THERE WILLING TO HAVE HIGH
DOLLAR FUNDRAISERS BUT IT’S A REMINDER OF HOW MUCH — I MEAN,
IT’S OBVIOUSLY A CRITIQUE OF THE SYSTEM, BUT THE MONEY DOES NOT
MATTER. AND IT BECOMES HARD TO GET PEOPLE TO CHIP IN FIVE BUCKS
HERE OR THERE, EVEN IF THEY LIKE WARREN, EVEN IF SHE IS THEIR
SECOND CHOICE, IF SHE IS NOT REALLY WINNING DELEGATES POINT
>>WARREN IN PARTICULAR HAS TIED MONEY TO MOMENTUM, BY SAYING,
COME GIVE ME MONEY, I’M NOT GOING TO GO TO YOU GUYS. PETE
BUTTIGIEG SHE HAS TO FOR THIS WINE K FUNDRAISER WHICH WAS A HIGH PROFILE MOMENT FOR HER
WHO DID GIVE SOME SCRUTINY TO PETE BUTTIGIEG IN THE SYSTEM.
WARREN HAS ISSUED THAT AND TO HAVE THE KIND OF GAME PLAN, SHE
HAS TO RAISE MONEY AND HAVE THAT
ORGANIZED IN NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA, YOU HAVE TO HAVE
PEOPLE WANT TO COME TO YOU. DESPITE LET’S CHECK IN NOW WITH
RHONDA COLEMAN, OUR COLLEAGUE WITH THE KLOBUCHAR CAMPAIGN, HI
RHONDA. HI LIBBY, YES, I’M HERE WITH COOPER, HE IS A NEW
HAMPSHIRE VOTER. YOU SAID ON CAMERA THAT AMY KLOBUCHAR WAS
NOT YOUR FIRST PICK A FEW WEEKS AGO. WHAT LED YOU TO MAKE THAT
DECISION TODAY TO VOTE FOR HER? >>I WENT TO SEE HER SPEAK IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, AND SHE REALLY
SEEMED LIKE SHE WAS A GOOD BLEND OF DIFFERENT THINGS. I MEAN, SHE WASN’T SO INTO HERSELF LIKE I
THINK SOME OF THE CANDIDATES ARE, YOU KNOW, SHE SEEMED REALLY
PRETTY NATURAL SHE IS MODERATE AND I THINK SHE WILL MORE LIKELY
BE ABLE TO PULL IN SOME OF THESE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR TRUMP IN
THE PAST. I’M WORRIED ABOUT MAKING SURE THAT WE HAVE ENOUGH
PEOPLE TO BEAT TRUMP, AND THE MODERATES WILL BE
IMPORTANT IN THE UPCOMING ELECTION. AND, I DON’T KNOW, SHE
SEEMED MORE WITH IT THAN BIDEN, SO I THINK YOU KNOW, BIDEN
OBVIOUSLY ALSO APPEALS TO MODERATES. BUT, SHE HAS GOT THE
EXPERIENCE. YOU KNOW, SHE — GOT AN EXTRA 20 YEARS ON. — ON PETE BUTTIGIEG. SHE’S BEEN IN
THE SENATE, SO I THINK SHE’S GOT THE LIFE EXPERIENCE THAT IS
REALLY IMPORTANT TO GETTING PEOPLE TO COMPROMISE. IT’S ALL
ABOUT COMPROMISE IN THE END. IT’S
>>DID YOU WATCH HER AT ALL THESE LAST THREE WEEKS SHE WAS
IN THE SENATE WITH THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL, DID YOU
FOLLOW HER? I KNOW SHE PULLED A LOT OF VOTERS THAT SHE CAN WALK
AND CHEW GUM AT THE SAME TIME CAMPAIGN AND ALSO DO HER DUTY AS
A SENATOR. WHAT DID YOU DO ABOUT THAT? DID YOU WATCH HER AT ALL
DURING THAT? >>I HAVE TO SAY I DON’T RECALL
WHETHER I ACTUALLY SAW HER IN THE SENATE. AND ACTUALLY, I WAS
TELLING YOUR OTHER REPORTER, THAT I WAS WORRIED, I DIDN’T
THINK THAT SHE WAS THAT POWERFUL A CANDIDATE UNTIL I HEARD HER
SPEAK. WHEN I HEARD HER SPEAK HERE IN CONCORD, YOU KNOW, I WAS VERY IMPRESSED. SHE REALLY SEEMS
LIKE SHE COULD REACH OUT TO EVERYBODY, BOTH THE BERNIE
BROSE AND PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR TRUMP, WHERE I’M NOT SURE THAT
EVERYBODY WILL RELATE TO HER THE SAME — I MEAN — FOR THE OTHER CANDIDATES LIKE WARREN,
I’M NOT SURE EVERYONE WILL RELATE TO THEM THE SAME WAY. BUT
AS FAR AS THE SENATE, I HONESTLY DON’T REMEMBER. I DON’T
REMEMBER. AND, I ALWAYS SAW HER IN THE DEBATE, I’VE ONLY WATCHED
ONE DEBATE. >>FRIDAY’S DEBATE? A LOT OF
PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT THE TURNING POINT FOR THEM. SHE
PERFORMED WELL. >>SHE LOOKS GREAT. SO, I THINK,
YOU KNOW, THAT CONVINCED ME THAT SHE IS A LOT STRONGER THAN I
THOUGHT SHE WAS. BEFORE I ACTUALLY LISTEN TO HER SPEAK AND
SAW WHAT SHE WAS ABOUT. AND, I THINK, MY WIFE WAS IMPRESSED, TOO. MY WIFE IS MORE
MODERATE. SO, I THINK THAT SHE IS GOING TO APPEAL TO A VERY
BROAD PORTION OF THE POPULATION. I HOPE SHE DOES WELL IN NEVADA. AND SOUTH CAROLINA.
>>THAT’S REALLY THE QUESTION RIGHT NOW. PEOPLE SAY THAT SHE
IS ATTRACTIVE HERE, BUT WILL THAT TRANSLATE TO SOUTH
CAROLINA? THERE ARE A LOT OF MINORITY VOTES OR NEVADA, SOME
PEOPLE ARE SAYING THAT TONIGHT MIGHT BE SOMETHING OF A FLUKE
AND THESE NEXT STATES WILL BE REALLY A TESTING POINT FOR HER
CAMPAIGN. >>I DON’T KNOW. I MEAN — I
GUESS THE QUESTION IS, ARE WE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, HOW SIMILAR ARE
WE TO OTHER PEOPLE, YOU KNOW? I THINK THAT — I DON’T KNOW IF WE
VOTED FOR BARACK OBAMA OR NOT. I KNOW I DIDN’T.
>>THE PRESIDENT SUCCEEDED WHEN HE WAS AGAINST
>>RIGHT, IN THE PRIMARIES. BUT I — YOU KNOW, I THINK AT THE
END OF THE DAY, WE SHARE A LOT OF COMMONALITIES, PARTICULARLY
IN THE MIDDLE. MAYBE WE SHARE LESS COMMONALITIES TOWARDS THE EDGES. SO,
>>Reporter: THE CORE ISSUES. >>EL. SO I THINK THAT THE BULK
OF THE ISSUES THAT WE ARE SHARING. I THINK SHE STANDS
A DECENT CHANCE. I AM HOPING THAT OTHER PEOPLE GIVE HER A
CHANCE, AND, YOU KNOW, GIVE HER A CHANCE TO TALK TO THEM AND TRY
TO GET THEIR VOTES, I THINK SHE HAS PERSUADED QUITE A FEW PEOPLE
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, IN A VERY SHORT TIME. YOU KNOW, SHE HAD
THE SAME OPPORTUNITY IN THOSE OTHER STATES. I THINK THAT’S
GREAT. >>THANK YOU SO MUCH, FOR TAKING SOME TIME OUT
FOR US. I DO WANT TO LET YOU KNOW THAT AMY KLOBUCHAR IS
EXPECTED TO BE ADDRESSING THIS CLOUD CROWD VERY SHORTLY. BACK TO YOU.
>>THANK YOU SO MUCH, RHONDA, APPRECIATE THAT. SO WE TALKED
ABOUT HOW AMY KLOBUCHAR HAS NOT HAD TO TAKE PUNCHES ON THE CHIN
THAT SOME OF THE CANDIDATES HAVE HAD TO SUFFER. LET’S TALK ABOUT SOME ALLELES IT
HASN’T HAD TO GO THROUGH THAT PUNCHING IT, MICHAEL BLOOMBERG.
HE IS USING TO ENTER THE RACE IN A NONTRADITIONAL UNORTHODOX WAY,
BUT HE IS STARTING TO GET MORE SCRUTINY.
>>YEAH, HE WAS MAYOR IN YOU KNEW NEW YORK FOR 12 YEARS, AND
ONE OF THE THINGS THAT CAME OUT YESTERDAY WAS AUDIO OF HIM
SPEAKING AT AN ABSENCE FUNCTION IF YOU YEARS BACK, A FEW MONTHS AGO
SOMETHING HE APOLOGIZE FOR AFTER REFUSING TO DO SO FOR YEARS AND
IT IS A REMINDER OF HIS VERY SPOTTY RECORD ON A LOT OF THESE
RACIAL ISSUES AND IT’S NOTABLE, BECAUSE HE IS ACTUALLY GOTTEN A
SURPRISING NUMBER OF ENDORSEMENTS FROM
AFRICAN-AMERICAN LEADERS. A LOT OF MAYORS IN SOUTHERN CITIES
HAVE GOTTEN BEHIND HIM. THE BIG-NAME MAYORS LIKE FROM
RICHMOND. AND WASHINGTON DC, ACTUALLY. BOTH
AFRICAN-AMERICANS, AND, SO, I THINK IT’S YOU’RE GOING TO START
TO SEE BLOOMBERG TAKE SOME HITS, FROM THE MODERATE CROWD.
>>RISING IN A COUPLE OF NATIONAL POLLS THAT HAVE COME
OUT THIS WEEK AND HAVE SHOWN, HERE’S THIS MAYOR WHO IS NOT
EVEN COMPETING IN IOWA, AND NEW HAMPSHIRE, LITERALLY WHAT IS THE
NUMBER, JAMES? >>IT’S LIKE $350 MILLION.
>>IS SPENDING THAT MONEY ON ADS AND STATES THAT AREN’T EVEN
VOTING IT, AND, IN A WAY, HE IS BUILDING A GROUND GAME THROUGH
THE MONEY BUT HE’S NOT HAVING TO BE OUT THERE TALKING TO VOTERS ON
THE DEBATE STAGE, RUNNING INTO OTHER CANDIDATES, GETTING OTHER
QUESTIONS FROM REPORTERS. SO, HE IS GETTING THE SCRUTINY ON HIS
RECORD IN A ROUNDABOUT WAY, BUT I THINK YOU ARE RIGHT, LIBBY, TO
CAST HIM AS A CANDIDATE WHO IS THIS A SHADOW OVER THE CAMPAIGN
AND WE HAVE YET TO SEE WHAT THAT MEANS FOR THE CAMPAIGN.
>>BERNIE SANDERS LOVES BEING IN THE MIX WITH MICHAEL BLOOMBERG.
>>>HEY, WE ARE HERE BACK IN THE STUDIO, AND WE HAVE A REALLY
GREAT SET OF UPDATES FOR YOU. WE ARE RUNNING AT ABOUT
51 PERCENT REPORTING, WHICH IS REALLY INTERESTING, AND IT MEANS
THAT SOME OF THESE PATTERNS WE ARE SEEING EARLY IN THE NIGHT
ARE STARTING TO BECOME CLEARER. SO, LET’S TALK ABOUT SOME OF THOSE PATTERNS AND SET UP THE
STAGE FOR YOU. BERNIE SANDERS AND PURPLE, WE HAVE PETE
BUTTIGIEG IN GREEN, AMY KLOBUCHAR IN INDIGO, AND
ELIZABETH WARREN IN ORANGE. IT’S NOW, WHAT WE ARE SEEING TONIGHT
IS THAT BERNIE SANDERS HAS 27, AND A LITTLE BIT PERCENT
OF THE VOTE, WE HAVE PETE BUTTIGIEG WITH ABOUT 23 1/2, WE
HAVE AMY KLOBUCHAR, A LITTLE UNDER 20 PERCENT, AND THEN WE
HAVE ELIZABETH WARREN AND DISTANT FOURTH AND RIGHT AROUND
10 PERCENT. THESE NUMBERS HAVE NOT CHANGED TOO MUCH SINCE LAST
TIME WE TALKED BUT, THE NUMBER OF VOTES REALLY HAVE. ABOUT HALF
OF THE TOTAL VOTE HAS BEEN REPORTED. WE HAVE ABOUT HALF
REMAINING. FOR SOME INTERESTING INSIGHT, I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT PLACES WHERE A PETE
BUTTIGIEG IS DOING PARTICULARLY WELL AND MAYBE AHEAD OF WHAT WE
EXPECTED. PARTICULARLY HERE IN ROCKINGHAM. PETE BUTTIGIEG
HAS WIDENED HIS LEAD, ABOUT A ONE POINT LEAD THE LAST TIME WE
TALKED NOW WE ARE LOOKING AT YOU AND A HALF OR MAYBE EVEN MORE.
AND, THAT IS INTERESTING FOR US BECAUSE THIS IS A RELATIVELY
LARGE AREA, CITIES OF DOVER AND PORTSMOUTH, THESE ARE AREAS
WHERE THEY ARE SEMIURBAN AND PLACES WHERE THERE ARE A LOT OF
VOTERS WHICH MEANS IT’S A PLACE WHERE PETE CAN START TO EVEN THE
SCORE. PLACES WHERE BERNIE SANDERS MAYBE ISN’T DOING QUITE
SO HOT. NOW, LET’S LOOK AT THE OTHER BIG POPULATION CENTERS.
MANCHESTER IS RELATIVELY IMPORTANT FOR US, WE HAVE GOT 52 PERCENT REPORTING
HERE IN HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY. IT BERNIE SANDERS PRETTY MUCH
RUNNING AWAY WITH THAT HERE, 27 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. PETE
BUTTIGIEG IS A DISTANT SECOND WITH 23 PERCENT. SO, NOW, FOR A
LITTLE MORE INSIGHT INTO WHAT THESE RAW VOTE TOTALS ARE
SHOWING IT WHAT’S TALK TO OUR DATA SCIENTIST LENNY BRONNER,
WHAT ARE YOU SEEING INSIDE THE VOTE TOTALS? WHAT DO YOU SEE
THAT COULD HELP US MAKE MORE SENSE OF THIS?
>>YEAH, WHEN IT COMES TO THE RACE BEING A BIT CLOSER THAN THE
RAW VOTE TOTALS WOULD SEEM TO SUGGEST, PREDICTING FOR THE REST
OF THE NIGHT. UPSET AS I MENTIONED PREVIOUSLY THERE WAS
THIS WEIRD AND DISTINCT SURGE THAT PETE BUTTIGIEG MADE THAT
MIGHT HAPPEN, IT DOES SEEM A LOT LESS LIKELY. THE MAIN THING THAT
WILL CHANGE BETWEEN MY LAST UPDATE AND WHAT I CAN TELL YOU NOW, IT SEEMS THAT BERNIE
SANDERS IS HOLDING ONTO MORE OF HIS VOTERS THAN I INITIALLY
THOUGHT. INITIALLY, I THOUGHT HE WAS HOLDING ONTO BETWEEN 30 AND
40 PERCENT OF HIS VOTERS BUT IT SEEMS MORE LIKELY THAT HE IS
HOLDING ONTO BETWEEN 50 AND 60 PERCENT. EXIT POLLING SEEMS TO
PUT THE NUMBER AT AROUND 62 PERCENT, MY MODEL IS PUTTING
THAT NUMBER AT AROUND 55 PERCENT. WHEN IN DOUBT, I WOULD
TRUST THE EXIT POLLS MORE THAN MY MODEL, BUT THE NUMBERS ARE SEEMING TO
CONVERGE AT THE MOMENT. BUT THAT SEEMS LIKE THE THING A DATA
SCIENTIST WOULD IN FACT SAY. DO YOU HAVE INSIGHT ABOUT THE
CANDIDATES UNDERPERFORMING A BIT TONIGHT, MAYBE SOMETHING ON
ELIZABETH WARREN OR JOE BIDEN. ARE THERE PLACES WHERE THE MODEL
SHOWS THAT THEY HAVE ROOM TO IMPROVE? OR, DOES IT LOOK LIKE
THEY ARE BASICALLY GOING TO BE WRITING ABOUT THE SAME SPOT.
>>BASICALLY THINK THAT THEY WILL BE DOING AS WELL AS THEY
ARE NOW. 60 PERCENT OF THE VOTE COMING IN. THAT BEING SAID, THE
MODEL DOES THINGS THAT ELIZABETH WARREN IS GOING TO DO BETTER
THAN JOE BIDEN, BUT IT IS A CLOSE MATCH FOR THE TWO OF THEM.
WHAT IS INTERESTING, AND WHAT I HAVE SEEN IS THAT JOE BIDEN
KEEPS HOLDING ONTO GETTING 10 PERCENT OR SO OF THE VOTES FROM 2016
WHICH IS A LOT LOWER THAN I FIRST THOUGHT. IF YOU LOOK AT
WHAT HAPPENED IN IOWA, HE WAS GETTING 15 TO 20 PERCENT PREVENT, AND IT SEEMS LIKE THAT
IS GOING DOWN EVEN FURTHER. >>IT’S THAT FASCINATING. WE
WILL HAVE MORE INSIGHTS FOR YOU THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT, AS SOON AS
WE GET RESULTS, WE WILL BRING THEM TO YOU. UNTIL THEN WE WILL
SEND IT TO JORGE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
>>REPORTER:’S HEY. I’M HERE WITH NICK, NICK HAS BEEN
VOLUNTEERING BEFORE PETE BUTTIGIEG YOU SAID FOR ABOUT A
YEAR NOW. CAN YOU TALK A BIT ABOUT WHAT THE LAST COUPLE OF
DAYS HAVE BEEN HERE. LET’S TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT IT WAS
LIKE FOR YOU IN YOUR HOMETOWN, AND AROUND NEW HAMPSHIRE. CAMPAIGNING FOR
PETE? >>IT’S AMAZING. THE ATMOSPHERE
IN THE COMMUNITY ALL AROUND IS SO SPECTACULAR.
THERE ARE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE IT. THIS PAST WEEKEND I’VE BEEN
WALKING ON KNOCKING ON DOORS AROUND NASHVILLE, ASKING PEOPLE
IF THEY’RE GOING TO VOTE AND WHO THEY WILL BE VOTING FOR. PEOPLE
ARE SO EXCITED, THAT THERE WILL BE CHANGE COMING, WHETHER THAT’S
PETE OR SOMEONE ELSE, THERE IS CHANGE
COMING AND WE ARE EXCITED. >>LET ME ASK YOU, HAVING BEEN
WITH THE CAMPAIGN FOR ONE YEAR, WHAT IS THE MOOD BEEN LIKE IN
THE EARLY DAYS COMPARED TO WHAT IT IS LIKE NOW? ALSO, AS YOU
WERE OUT TALKING TO PEOPLE, WERE THERE OTHER CANDIDATES BEFORE
BRINGING UP, OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE
CAMPAIGNING FOR PETE, BUT WHAT OTHER NAMES HAVE YOU BEEN
HEARING? >>WE STARTED OFF VERY UNDERDOG
STORY, COMING UP WITH NEARLY NO NATIONAL RECOGNITION, BUT NOT
TODAY WE ARE SECOND PLACE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND WE WON IOWA, IT IS
VERY COMPELLING TO SEE WHERE WE HAVE, AND I’M INTERESTED IN
SEEING WHERE WE GO. AROUND THE AREA A LOT OF PEOPLE AS WE ARE
SEEING RIGHT NOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE BETWEEN PETE AND
BERNIE, SEEMS LIKE THE MORE PROGRESSIVE THAN THE MORE
MODERATE FAVORITES, I THINK IT WILL BE EXCITING TO SEE WHERE
TONIGHT ENDS UP GOING FROM IOWA FORWARD.
>>OKAY. THANKS NICK. FORMER VICE
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN IS ABOUT TO SPEAK RIGHT NOW SO WE WILL GO TO
HIM. >>I LOVE YOU GUYS. I’VE BEEN
COMING HERE A LONG TIME, I WANTED TO BE REBORN
IN CHARLESTON, ACTUALLY, I LIKE THE LOW COUNTRY, YOU KNOW WHAT I
MEAN? LOOK. I HOPE — THANK YOU. PLEASE SIT DOWN HAVE A SEAT,
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU. I AM JOE BIDEN. I WORK FOR CEDRIC
RICHMAN AND DAVID MACK TAKING ME TO SCHOOL. LOOK, I KNOW SOME OF
THE OTHER SENATORS CAME OVER, THEY CAME UP TO SEE ME, THEY ARE
IN SESSION RIGHT NOW, THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE EFFORT. THERE ARE
SO MANY PEOPLE HERE FOR ME TO SAY THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK
YOU FOR. I JUST SPOKE TO OUR FOLKS UP IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND
THEY DID A GOOD JOB. BUT I WANT TO TELL YOU, THE PEOPLE OF
NEVADA ARE WATCHING, AND I WANT TO MAKE IT CLEAR, WE PRAISE THEIR
DIVERSITY AS A STATE AND I WILL BE OUT THERE SEEING THEM VERY
SOON, TONIGHT, THOUGH. WE JUST HEARD FROM THE FIRST TWO OF THE
STATE, TWO OF THEM. NOT A QUARTER OF THE NATION ARE 10 PERCENT, TOO. WHERE I COME
FROM, THAT’S THE OPENING BELL, NOT THE CLOSING BELL. AND, THE
FIGHT AND DONALD TRUMP’S PRESIDENCY IS JUST BEGINNING. THANK YOU. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT
IOWA AND NEVADA HAVE SPOKEN. BUT WE
NEED TO HEAR FROM NEVADA, SOUTH CAROLINA, AND SUPER TUESDAY
STATES AND BEYOND. LOOK, WE ARE MOVING INTO AN ESPECIALLY
IMPORTANT PHASE, BECAUSE UP UNTIL NOW, WE HAVE NOT HEARD
FROM THE MOST COMMUNICATIVE COMMUNITIES IN THE DEMOCRATIC
PARTY, THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITIES. IN
THE FASTEST-GROWING SEGMENT OF SOCIETY, THE LATINO COMMUNITY. I
WANT Y’ALL TO THINK OF A NUMBER. 99.9 PERCENT. THAT IS THE
PERCENTAGE OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN VOTERS WHO HAVE NOT YET HAD A
CHANCE TO VOTE IN AMERICA. ONE MORE NUMBER, 99.8. THAT IS THE
PERCENT OF LATINO VOTERS EVERY NIGHT YOU HAVE HAD A CHANCE TO
VOTE. SO WHEN YOU HEAR ALL THESE PUNDITS AND EXPERTS, CABLE TV
TALK IS TALKING ABOUT THE RACE, TELL THEM, IT AIN’T OVER. WE ARE
JUST GETTING STARTED. OUR VOTES COUNT TWO. WE WON’T LET ANYONE
TAKE THIS ELECTION AWAY. I’VE SAID MANY TIMES. YOU CAN’T BE
THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE WHEN AND ELECTION IS A DEMOCRAT IF YOU
DON’T HAVE OVERWHELMING SUPPORT FROM BLACK AND BROWN VOTERS.
THAT’S A FACT THAT IS TRUE. FOLKS, ALL THOSE DEMOCRATS WHO WON AGAINST
INCUMBENTS, FROM JIMMY CARTER, TO A GUY NAMED CLINTON,
A GUY NAMED OBAMA, MY GOOD FRIEND, GUESS WHAT, THEY HAD
OVERWHELMING AFRICAN-AMERICAN SUPPORT. WITHOUT IT, NOBODY HAS
EVER WON. REALLY. AND Y’ALL KNOW YOU
OWN MY HEART. LOOK. MORE IMPORTANTLY, YOU SHOULD BE
ABLE TO WIN THE NOMINATION WITHOUT BLACK AND BROWN VOTERS.
TOO OFTEN, YOUR LOYALTY, YOUR SUPPORT, YOUR COMMITMENT TO THIS
PARTY HAVE BEEN TAKEN FOR GRANTED. I HAVE NEVER ONCE IN MY
CAREER, SINCE I GOT INVOLVED AS A KID, TAKEN IT FOR GRANTED. AND
I GIVE YOU MY WORD, I NEVER EVER EVER WILL. NOW, IF YOU WANT TO
KNOW WHAT OTHER CANDIDATES WILL DO IN THE FUTURE. TENDENCY TO
LOOK AT THE PAST. I HAD A GREAT JOB AS A KID AT A FANCY LAW
FIRM, AND I BECAME A PUBLIC DEFENDER, TO FIGHT FOR THE
PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY ARE USED TO WORKING ON THE EASTSIDE
BECAUSE THEY CANNOT AFFORD A LAWYER. I’M A COUNTY COUNSEL, I
FOUGHT AGAINST REDLINING IN THE U.S. SENATE I PASSED THE
EXTENSION OF THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT FOR TWO DECADES. THE
VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN ACT. BY THE WAY, I’VE BEEN BACKING A
GREAT PRESENT NAMED BARACK OBAMA, FOR
EIGHT YEARS. BY THE WAY, WE INCREASED ACCESS FOR AFRICAN-AMERICAN ENTREPRENEURS.
GIVEN A CHANCE TO DO JUST AS WELL AS ANYBODY ELSE AND QUITE
FRANKLY BETTER, AND THEY BUILD THE NEIGHBORHOOD, THEY BUILD OUR COMMUNITIES. BARACK AND I
WERE ABLE TO REDUCE THE FEDERAL POPULATION SPEAKING OF HBCUS, I
GOT $70 BILLION FROM HBCUS, NOT A JOKE. MINORITY UNIVERSITIES. LOOK. WE PASSED
OBAMACARE. WE STOPPED INSURANCE COMPANIES FROM DISSEMINATING
AGAINST PEOPLE WITH PREVIOUS CONDITIONS, AND ON TOP OF ALL
THAT, WE BUILT AN ECONOMY THAT TRUMP IS BRAGGING ABOUT. MY
WORD. THIS GUY SQUANDERED HIS FATHER’S FORTUNE IS
SQUANDERING THE ECONOMY WE GAVE HIM. YOU THINK I’M KIDDING, I’M
NOT. SO, MISTER PRESIDENT, INSTEAD OF TALKING ABOUT
IMPEACHING BARACK OBAMA, YOU SHOULD BE
SAYING, THANK YOU PRESIDENT OBAMA. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK
YOU. FOLKS LOOK, WE HAVE SO MUCH MORE TO DO. I PROMISE YOU AS
YOUR PRESIDENT. YOU WILL BE PARTNERS SHAPING THE POLICY TO
MAKE SURE EVERY SINGLE AMERICAN HAS AN OPPORTUNITY. THE THING
THAT I HAVE NEVER LIKED I DON’T KNOW WHAT
YOU NEED BEST. I LISTEN. YOU ALL, THE LEADERS IN THE BLACK
COMMUNITY KNOW WHAT YOU NEED BEST. WE DON’T LISTEN ENOUGH. WE
TAKE FOR GRANTED, YOU KNOW WHAT YOU NEED. WHAT YOU FAMILY NEEDS
AND I’VE NEVER NOT LISTEN TO YOU. FIRST, BUILDING ON
OBAMACARE. TRUMP WANTS TO GET RID OF IT. EVEN SOME OF THE
FOLKS IN THE PRIMARY WANT TO TAKE IT AWAY. BUT I WILL NEVER
LET THAT HAPPEN. FOLKS. I WAS PROUD TO
SERVE AS PRESIDENT OBAMA’S VICE PRESIDENT FOR YEARS, THE OWNER
OF MY LIFE, WE BECOME A CLOSE PERSONAL FRIEND, THE WHOLE
FAMILY, MATTER-OF-FACT OUR GRANDDAUGHTERS WENT TO SCHOOL
TOGETHER FOR 12 YEARS, ACTUALLY 10 YEARS. BUT, I STILL HANG OUT WITH ONE ANOTHER EVEN
IF THEY GO TO DIFFERENT SCHOOLS. WHERE ARE YOU, I’M UP IN
MICHIGAN, UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING THERE? I CAME
UP TO SEE YOU ANYWAY. ALL I KNOW IS, I GET TO PAY FOR THE PLANE
TICKET. WELL, I WAS NEVER MORE PROUD THAN THE DATA WE PASSED
OBAMACARE. HERE IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO DO. WE’RE GOING TO EXPAND
THAT, WE ARE WILL ELIMINATE, GET RID OF ALL THE EXECUTIVE ORDERS
THAT HAVE CURTAILED IT, WE WILL INCREASE FUNDING, IN THE
RESEARCH FOR FINDING CURES. TOO MANY FAMILIES DEALING WITH
CANCER, DIABETES. AFRICAN-AMERICANS, MATERNAL HEALTH DISPARITIES, AND UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA, TODAY, TODAY. THERE IS AN INCREDIBLE
DISPARITY. IT IS SINFUL. IT IS SINFUL. IT IS AN INDICTMENT OF
THE ENTIRE SYSTEM. BY THE WAY, Y’ALL KNOW EDUCATION IS
A GREAT EQUALIZER, WE NEED TO TREAT IT THAT WAY. EVERY CHILD
HAS THE SAME CAPACITY. WHEN THEY ARE BORN. EVERY ONE OF THEM HAS
THE SAME CAPACITY. EVERY CHILD HAS DESERVED A GREAT EDUCATIONAL
MATTER WITH YOUR ZIP CODE OR INCOME LEVEL. NOW, I PUT MY
MONEY WHERE MY MOUTH IS, WE WILL GIVE OUR TEACHERS THE PAYRAISE
THEY NEED, TO MAKE SURE — BY THE WAY, WE ARE LOSING. 115,000 TEACHERS
SHORT. BY 2025, WE WILL BE A QUARTER
MILLION SHORT, AND WHO WILL GET SHORTCHANGED? THE PEOPLE — YOUR
DOWN RIGHT THEY ARE. NOW, LOOK WE CAN GIVE OUR TEACHERS
PAYRAISE, TO DO THAT, WE WILL CONTINUE CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
THAT PRESIDENT OBAMA AND I STARTED. WE WILL END ALL PRIVATE
PRISONS. AND, NO MORE JAIL TIME PRODUCTION WE WILL
BUILD MORE TREATMENT FACILITIES. MAKE SURE
MARIJUANA CONVICTIONS, THEIR ENTIRE RECORD IS EXPUNGED SO A JOB APPLICATION
YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SAY LEGALLY NO I HAVE NOT. FOLKS, FOLKS,
LET’S THINK ABOUT THIS. THERE’S SO MUCH, AND BY THE WAY, ALL THE STATES ARE OUT
THERE LEGALIZING MARIJUANA, LEGALIZING MEDICAL USE, WE SHOULD TAKE A
BIG CHUNK OF THOSE PROFITS AND PUT THEM INTO PRISON REFORM AS
TREATMENT. TREATMENT TREATMENTS TREATMENTS. LOOK. IT’S JUST AS
IMPORTANT TO BE A COUNTRY OF SECOND CHANCES FOR GOD SAKES.
THINK ABOUT IT. WE’LL TALK ABOUT SECOND CHANCES. WHAT DO WE DO?
SOMEONE GETS OUT OF PRISON OR GETS OUT OF A TOUGH SPOT, WE
SAY, YOU ARE DENIED ALL THE THINGS THAT CAN HELP YOU. FROM
RETURNING TO YOUR COMMUNITIES, $25 AND A BUS TICKET, YOU END UP
UNDER A BRIDGE. WE NEED TO ELIMINATE ALL THOSE BARRIERS TO
SUCCESS. HAVE TO MAKE SURE ALL THE CONSEQUENT IS
ELIMINATED. PEOPLE COMING OUT OF PRISON OF PEOPLE COMING BACK
OBSERVING THE TIME, PEOPLE COMING BACK OUT OF RECOVERY,
THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET HELP PELL GRANTS, AND HOUSING, SHOULD
LOOK AT ALL THE THINGS THAT GIVE THEM A CHANCE. AND WHILE THEY
ARE THERE, WE SHOULD BE TEACHING THEM SKILLS. IT MAKES NO SENSE.
IT MAKES NO SENSE, TO KEEP IT A PENAL SYSTEM. WE ARE A GREAT
COUNTRY AND WE HAVE GREAT PEOPLE. THE GREATEST WORKERS IN
THE WORLD. BUT, YOU SHOULD BE PAID LIKE WHERE THE GREATEST
WORKERS IN THE WORLD. THE BACKGROUND I COME FROM, NOT DISSIMILAR. EXCEPT HE WAS IN
LOUISIANA I WAS IN PENNSYLVANIA, IN SCRANTON. TOO MANY FAMILIES
WORKING THEIR TAILS OFF. JUST TO MAKE ENDS MEET. YOU KNOW HOW
MANY PEOPLE I KNOW, YOU KNOW NOW, MAKE THAT LONGEST WALK
UP A SHORT FLIGHT OF STAIRS TO TELL THEIR SON OR DAUGHTER,
HONEY, WE CAN’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE. DADDY MOMMY DOESN’T
HAVE A JOB. YOU’RE GOING TO LIVE WITH
GRANDPA FOR A WHILE BUT I WILL MAKE IT WE WILL BE ABLE TO DO IT
AND I’LL COME BACK AND I’LL MAKE SURE WHEN I’M ABLE TO GET A
PLACE, WE WILL BRING YOU ALL TOGETHER AGAIN. PEOPLE HAVING
TROUBLE KEEPING RIBS OVER THEIR HEADS. WELL, MY DAD WALKED UP
THE STAIRS, FIRST WASHINGTON AVENUE, I WAS IN THIRD GRADE HE
LOOKED AT ME AND SAID I PROMISE YOU IT’S GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT,
HE BELIEVED IT WAS. HE BELIEVED. AND, HE WAS RIGHT. HE TOOK HIS
SHOT, YOU GOT A CHANCE, YOU’RE ABLE TO DO IT. TODAY, THINK OF
ALL THE PEOPLE YOU CANNOT LOOK AT THEIR KIDS AND SAY, IT’S
GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT WE’LL BE ABLE TO DO IT. BECAUSE, THE DECK
IS STACKED THE WAY IT IS TODAY. IT REALLY GENUINELY IS. WE HAVE
TWO THIRDS, OVER 50 PERCENT OF ALL PEOPLE WORKING-CLASS AND
MIDDLE-CLASS CHILDREN WILL NEVER ACHIEVE THE SAME STANDING THEY
HAVE. WHAT A GOD-AWFUL CONCEPT. YOU KNOW. IT JUST MAKES ME MAD. LOOK. WE’RE GOING TO INVEST IN
OUR FAMILIES AND OUR COMMUNITIES, WE ARE GOING TO
INVEST IN ROADS AND BRIDGES, BROADBAND, WATER SYSTEMS, SCHOOL
BUILDINGS, RURAL INSTRUCTOR. GOING TO INVEST IN 10 OR 20 OR
30 PLANS TO GET, FINALLY FOR THOSE AREAS LEFT BEHIND, THE
BULK OF WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE. AND BY THE WAY. I MAKE NO
APOLOGIZES TO ANYBODY FOR IT. THE WEALTHY, THE
SEMI-WEALTHY, THE MIDDLE CLASS, THE WORKING CLASS, EVERYBODY
DOES BETTER. WHEN THEY DO, EVERYTHING WORKS FOR EVERYBODY.
EVERYTHING. WE’VE GOT TO MAKE SURE BLACK AND BROWN FAMILIES, AND BUSINESSES HAVE THE SAME SHOT TO ACCUMULATE
WEALTH. LOOK FOLKS YOU LIVE IN A BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD YOU HAVE THE
SAME EXACT HOUSE AS THE GUY WHO LIVES ACROSS THE HIGHWAY IN A
WHITE NEIGHBORHOOD. SAME EXACT HOUSE, SAME CONDITION. YOU PAY
MORE FOR INSURANCE, HOW DO YOU GET A CHANCE TO ACCUMULATE WEALTH? WELL, I TELL
YOU WHAT. THAT’S NOT HOW YOU’RE GOING TO FULFILL THE DREAMS. I
REALLY MEAN IT. YOU KNOW, WE ARE NOT GOING TO INVEST IN THESE TAX CUTS FOR
THE WEALTHY AND CORPORATIONS, THE SYSTEM IS ALREADY RIGGED IN
THEIR FAVOR. THAT $1.9 TRILLION TRUMP GAVE AWAY TO
THE TOP TWO PERCENT, WE WILL INVEST IN FAMILIES INSTEAD. I
REALLY MEAN IT, I’VE DONE IT. THERE IS NO LIMIT TO
WHAT WE CAN GET DONE IN THE NEXT FOUR YEARS. BUT FIRST, WE HAVE
TO BEAT DONALD TRUMP. FOLKS. FOLKS. I BELIEVE, I SAID IT WHEN THOSE
FOLKS CAME OUT OF THOSE FIELDS CARRYING THOSE TORTURES. >>[ CHEERING ]>>THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
>>AMY. AMY. AMY. >>THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
>>THANK YOU. THANK YOU NEW HAMPSHIRE. THANK YOU NEW
HAMPSHIRE. WE LOVE YOU NEW HAMPSHIRE. HELLO AMERICA. I
AM AMY KLOBUCHAR, AND I WILL BEAT DONALD TRUMP.
>>[ CHEERING ]
>>MY HEART — MY HEART IS FULL TONIGHT. MY HEART IS FULL
TONIGHT. WELL, THERE ARE STILL BALLOTS LEFT TO COUNT, WE HAVE
BEATEN THE ODDS EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. WE HAVE DONE IT ON THE MERITS, WE HAVE DONE IT WITH
IDEAS, AND WE HAVE DONE IT WITH HARD WORK. BECAUSE, WE ARE RESILIENT,
AND STRONG, AS PEOPLE OF THIS GREAT NATION. THANK YOU, TO OUR
INCREDIBLE STAFF, AND OUR UNSTOPPABLE VOLUNTEERS. MY
WONDERFUL HUSBAND JOHN, OUR DAUGHTER ABIGAIL., THE PEOPLE OF
NEW HAMPSHIRE. BECAUSE, OF YOU, PEEP WE ARE TAKING THIS CAMPAIGN
TO NEVADA. WE ARE GOING TO SOUTH CAROLINA. AND WE ARE
TAKING THIS MESSAGE OF UNITY TO THE COUNTRY. WE KNOW IN OUR
HEARTS, THAT IN A DEMOCRACY, IT IS NOT ABOUT THE
LOUDEST VOICE, OR THE BIGGEST BANK ACCOUNT. IT IS ABOUT THE
BEST IDEAS, AND ABOUT THE PERSON WHO CAN TURN THOSE IDEAS INTO
ACTION. >>[ CHEERING ]
>>WE KNOW THAT WE CANNOT WIN BIG, BY TRYING TO OUT TO DIVIDE
THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF. WE KNOW THAT WE WIN BY BRINGING PEOPLE
WITH US, INSTEAD OF SHUTTING THEM OUT. DONALD TRUMP’S WORST
NIGHTMARE IS THAT THE PEOPLE IN THE MIDDLE, THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE
HAD ENOUGH OF THE NAME-CALLING, AND THE MUDSLINGING, HAVE SOMEONE TO
VOTE FOR IN NOVEMBER.>>GO AMY PRESIDENT TRUMP. GO
AMY PRESIDENT TRUMP. GO AMY PRESIDENT TRUMP.
>>I CANNOT WAIT TO BRING OUR GREEN BUS
AROUND THE COUNTRY. I CANNOT WAIT TO
WIN THE NOMINATION. I CANNOT WAIT TO BUILD A MOVEMENT,
AND WIN WITH A MOVEMENT OF FIRED UP DEMOCRATS, INDEPENDENTS, AND MODERATE REPUBLICANS.
>>[ CHEERING ]
>>SEE THE SELECTION AS WE DO. WE SEE IT AS AN ECONOMIC CHECK
ON THIS PRESIDENT. WE SEE IT AS A PATRIOTISM CHECK, AND, WE SEE
IT AS A DECENCY CHECK. BECAUSE, IN THE END. WE KNOW THAT WHAT
UNITES US, IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN WHAT DIVIDES US. AND, WE
KNOW. WE KNOW, THAT WE BELIEVE, SO MANY OF US BELIEVE THAT THE HEART OF
AMERICA IS BIGGER THAN THE HEART OF THIS GUY IN THE WHITE HOUSE.
>>TONIGHT IS ABOUT RISK, AND MY STORY LIKE
SO MANY OF YOURS IS ONE OF RESILIENCE. I ANNOUNCED MY
CANDIDACY IN THE MIDDLE OF A MINNESOTA BLIZZARD. AND,
THERE WERE A LOT OF PEOPLE WHO PREDICTED I WOULDN’T EVEN GET
THROUGH THAT SPEECH. BUT NOT THE PEOPLE OF MY STATE, AND NOT THE
PEOPLE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE. EXCEPT, THEN THEY
PREDICTED THAT WE WOULDN’T MAKE IT THROUGH THE SUMMER. WE DID.
THEN THEY PREDICTED WE WOULDN’T MAKE IT TO THE DEBATE. AND MAN,
WERE WE AT THE DEBATE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. WE HAVE BEEN
STEADY AND STRONG AND WE HAVE NEVER QUIT. I THINK THAT SOUNDS
PRETTY GOOD FOR A PRESIDENT. BUT ACROSS THE MONTHS AND MONTHS AND
MILES OF THIS RACE. WE REDEFINED THE WORD GRIT. YOU SEE IT WITH
OUR HAPPY SCRAPPY CAMPAIGN. YOU SAW IT IN OUR 30 HOUR TOUR IN THE
MIDDLE OF A NOR’EASTER. LET’S NOT FORGET THAT. YOU SAW IT IN
OUR EARLY MORNING DINER STOPS, ON OUR LATE-NIGHT RALLIES, AND
YES, YOU SAW IT ON THE DEBATE STAGE. JUST LIKE SO MANY OF YOU
OUT THERE. I KNOW THE LITTLE BIT ABOUT RESILIENCE. MY GRANDPA WORKED 1500 FEET
UNDERGROUND IN THE MINDS OF NORTHERN MINNESOTA. HE NEVER
GRADUATED FROM HIGH SCHOOL, BECAUSE HIS PARENTS WERE SICK, HE HAD NINE BROTHERS
AND SISTERS, AND HE HAD TO HELP RAISE THEM. AND EVERY DAY, HE
WOULD GO DOWN IN THAT CAGE, IN THAT MIND, CARRYING A LUNCH
BUCKET THAT MY GRANDMA WOULD PACK. HIS YOUNGEST SISTER,
HANNAH, WAS ONLY EIGHT YEARS OLD WHEN THEY PUT HER IN THE
ORPHANAGE, AND HE VOWED AFTER HIS PARENTS DIED THAT HE WOULD
GO AND GET HER, AND TWO YEARS LATER, HE BORROWED A CAR, HE
WENT AND BROUGHT HER HOME. HE AND MY GRANDMA, SAVE MONEY IN
ACCOSTING — COFFEE CAN IN THE BASEMENT, TO SEND MY DAD TO
COMMUNITY COLLEGE. MY DAD AND BECOME A NEWSPAPERMAN. MY MOM,
SHE WAS BORN IN MILWAUKEE, THE SITE OF OUR NEXT CONVENTION. AND, SHE CAME TO
MINNESOTA AND TAUGHT SECOND GRADE UNTIL SHE WAS 70 YEARS
OLD. AND, I STILL NEED PEOPLE THAT SAY, SHE WAS THEIR FAVORITE
TEACHER. SO, I STAND BEFORE YOU TODAY. AS THE GRANDDAUGHTER
OF AN IRON OR MINOR, AS THE DAUGHTER OF A TEACHER, AND A
NEWSPAPERMAN, AS THE FIRST WOMAN ELECTED TO THE U.S. SENATE FROM
THE STATE OF MINNESOTA, AND, A CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
>>[ CHEERING ] >>AMY, AMY, AMY. >>, BETH, MY FRIENDS, THAT IS
BECAUSE WE LIVE IN A COUNTRY OF SHARED DREAMS. THAT
IS, NO MATTER WHERE YOU COME FROM, NO MATTER WHO YOU KNOW, NO
MATTER THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN OR WHERE YOU WORSHIP, NO MATTER WHO
YOU LOVE, THAT YOU CAN MAKE IT IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
I DID NOT HAVE A PERFECT LIFE. MY DAD STRUGGLED WITH ALCOHOLISM HIS WHOLE LIFE,
AND BY THE TIME JOHN AND I GOT MARRIED. HE GOT HIS THIRD DWI AND THE JUDGE SAID TO
HIM YOU GOT TO DECIDE, JAILER TREATMENT, AND HE CHOSE
TREATMENT. AND IN HIS WORDS, HE WAS PURSUED BY GRACE. I BELIEVE THAT
EVERYONE IN THIS COUNTRY SHOULD HAVE THAT OPPORTUNITY, TO BE
PURSUED BY GRACE. WHEN ABIGAIL WAS BORN,
WE THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE THIS PERFECT THING, BUT SHE WAS
REALLY SICK. AND SHE COULD NOT SWALLOW, AND SHE WAS IN
INTENSIVE CARE, AND BACK THEN, THE INSURANCE COMPANY HAD A RULE
AND KICKED ME OUT OF THE HOSPITAL EVEN THOUGH SHE WAS IN
INTENSIVE CARE. FOR 24 HOURS. A FEW MONTHS LATER, I WENT TO THE LEGISLATURE, WORKED WITH A
NUMBER OF LEGISLATORS, AND WE PASSED ONE OF THE FIRST LAWS IN
THE COUNTRY, GUARANTEEING NEW MOMS AND THEIR BABIES A $48 —
48 HOUR HOSPITAL STAY. THAT IS HOW I DO MY WORK. AND AS MY FRIEND ELIZABETH NOTED TONIGHT.
PEOPLE TOLD ME JUST LIKE I TOLD HER, THAT THEY DID NOT THINK A
WOMAN COULD BE ELECTED. IN MY CASE, IT WAS ELECTED TO U.S.
SENATE. NO WOMEN HAD EVER DONE IT BEFORE. BUT, I CAME BACK, I
DEFIED EXPECTATION, AND I WON. AND, I HAVE DONE IT OVER AND
OVER AGAIN IN THE RED DISTRICT AND THE BLUE DISTRICTS. AND,
WHEN I GOT TO THE U.S. SENATE, PEOPLE TOLD ME IT’S SO HARD TO
GET THINGS DONE. WELL, IN THAT GRIDLOCK OF WASHINGTON DC, I
HAVE PASSED OVER 100 BILLS, AS THE LEAD DEMOCRAT.
AND, TONIGHT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, AS EVERYONE HAD COUNTED US OUT,
EVEN A WEEK AGO. THANK YOU, PUNDITS. I CAME BACK, AND WE DELIVERED. WE HAVE BEEN ON QUITE A JOURNEY
TOGETHER. AND, YOU HAVE LEARNED THIS ABOUT ME, I NEVER GIVE UP. MY STORY IS NOTHING,
COMPARED TO THE RESILIENCE THAT I HAVE SEEN ALL OVER THE
COUNTRY. THE MOMS IN CALIFORNIA, WHO LOST HER CHILD, TO GUN
VIOLENCE, AND EVEN THROUGH HER GRIEF AND HEART RATE, SHE HAS
JOINED THE FIGHTS TO KEEP OUR CHILDREN SAFE. THE EMIGRANT, WHO
WORKED TWO JOBS, AND STILL STRUGGLE TO PUT FOOD ON THE
TABLE, BUT IS DETERMINED, TO RAISE HER KIDS
IN AMERICA, SO THAT THEY HAVE THE BETTER FUTURE. THE FARMER, WHO
IS FACING BANKRUPTCY, BECAUSE OF BAD TRUMP POLICIES, BUT PERSISTS
IN WORKING THE LAND, JUST LIKE HIS PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS BEFORE HIM. AMERICA DESERVES A
PRESIDENT, WHO DOES NOT GIVE UP OR GIVE IN, JUST BECAUSE A
DECISION IS HARD. AMERICA DESERVES A PRESIDENT WHO IS AS
RESILIENT AS HER PEOPLE. AMERICA DESERVES A PRESIDENT WHO
IS GOING TO TAKE ON THE CHALLENGES OF OUR TIMES. CLIMATE
CHANGE, AND AFFORDABLE EDUCATION, AND COLLEGE.
IMMIGRATION REFORM. JUSTICE AND DEMOCRACY, AND YES, BRINGING
DOWN THE COST OF HEALTHCARE. OUR COUNTRY CANNOT TAKE ANOTHER FOUR
YEARS OF DONALD TRUMP. THE RULE OF LAW CANNOT WITHSTAND ANOTHER
FOUR YEARS OF A PRESIDENT WHO THINKS THAT HE IS ABOUT IT. OUR
COLLECTIVE SENSE OF DECENCY CANNOT HANDLE ANOTHER FOUR YEARS
OF A PRESIDENT WHO DOES NOT CARE ABOUT IT. OUR DEMOCRACY CANNOT
TOLERATE ANOTHER FOUR YEARS OF A PRESIDENT WHO WANTS TO BULLDOZE
RIGHT THROUGH IT. AND, OUR AMERICAN DREAM CANNOT TOLERATE A
PRESIDENT, WHO THINKS HE CAN CHOOSE WHO LIVES IT. THE PRESIDENT MIGHT AS
WELL HAVE A SIGN ON HIS DESK THAT SAYS THE BUCK STOPS
ANYWHERE BUT HERE. HE BLAMES EVERYONE. THINK ABOUT THIS. FOR
ANYTHING THAT GOES WRONG, HE BLAMES BARACK OBAMA. HE BLAMES
THE CITY OF BALTIMORE. HE BLAMES THE HEAD OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE
THAT HE APPOINTED. HE BLAMES THE
ENERGY SECRETARY THAT HE NOMINATED. HE BLAMES THE CITY OF
BALTIMORE. HE BLAMES THE ENTIRE KINGDOM OF DENMARK. WHO DOES
THAT? MY FAVORITE RECENT ONE, HE BLAMES THE PRIME MINISTER OF
CANADA FOR CUTTING HIM OUT OF THE CANADIAN VERSION OF HOME
ALONE TWO. THAT IS WHAT THIS GUY DOES. THAT IS DONALD TRUMP. I
THINK WE CAN DO BETTER, BECAUSE FOR THE PEOPLE OF THIS COUNTRY,
WHEN THINGS GO WRONG, THEY DON’T HAVE ANYONE TO BLAME. THEY JUST
HAVE TO PICK THEMSELVES UP. AND, I CAN PROMISE YOU THIS. WHEN I
AM BEHIND THAT DESK, I WILL TAKE RESPONSIBILITY IN THAT OF
PASSING IT ON. I WILL REACH ACROSS THE AISLE, AND WORK WITH
AMERICANS IN GOOD FAITH, INSTEAD OF PICKING FIGHTS. I WILL BRING
THIS COUNTRY TOGETHER, INSTEAD OF TEARING IT APART. SOME OF YOU HAVE HEARD
THIS STORY ABOUT FRANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT. WHEN HE DIED, THEY
PUT HIS BODY IN A TRAIN AND IT WENT THROUGH THE COUNTRYSIDE
FROM WASHINGTON DC. AND, PEOPLE WOULD
SPONTANEOUSLY STAND NEXT TO THOSE RAIL TRACKS, TO SHOW THEIR
RESPECT. AND, THE STORY GOES THAT ONE GUY WITH WAS STANDING
THERE SOBBING, REGULAR GUY HAD HIS HAT ACROSS HIS CHEST, AND
THIS REPORTER SAYS TO HIM, SIR, DID YOU KNOW PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT
DO YOU MIGHT ME ASKING IF YOU KNEW
HIM AND THE GUY SAYS NO, I DIDN’T KNOW PRESIDENT
ROOSEVELT’S, BUT HE KNEW ME. HE KNEW ME. THAT IS WHAT IS LACKING
RIGHT NOW IN THE WHITE HOUSE. THAT EMPATHY, THAT ABILITY OF
THE PRESIDENT, TO PUT HIMSELF OR HERSELF IN THE SHOES OF THE CITIZENS OF
THIS COUNTRY. WHAT IS LACKING IS THAT SACRED TRUST BETWEEN THE
PEOPLE OF THIS NATION, AND THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
AND, MY FRIENDS, I WILL RESTORE THAT TRUST. IF YOU ARE HAVING
TROUBLE DECIDING BETWEEN FILLING A PRESCRIPTION, OR FILLING YOUR
REFRIGERATOR WITH FOOD, I KNOW YOU, AND I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU.
IF YOU CANNOT DECIDE HOW YOU WILL STRETCH THAT PAYCHECK, TO
PAY FOR YOUR RENT, OR PAY YOUR MORTGAGE, I KNOW YOU. AND I WILL
FIGHT FOR YOU. AND, IF YOU ARE HAVING
TROUBLE DECIDING HOW YOU ARE GOING TO PAY FOR THE CHILDCARE,
FOR YOUR KIDS, AND THE LONG-TERM CARE FOR YOUR PARENTS, I KNOW
YOU. AND, I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU.
>>[ CHEERING ] >>IF YOU WANT A DEMOCRATIC
NOMINEE WHO CAN MAKE OUR TENT BIGGER, WHO CAN MAKE OUR
COALITION WIDER, AND OUR COATTAILS LONGER, I KNOW YOU,
AND I WILL FIGHT FOR YOU. AND. IF YOU FEEL STUCK
IN THE EXTREMES OF OUR POLITICS, AND YOU ARE TIRED OF THE NOISE
AND THE NONSENSE, YOU HAVE A HOME WITH ME. IF YOU WANT A NOMINEE
WHO CAN STAND UP, TO DONALD TRUMP, ON THAT DEBATE PAGE,
WHICH YOU WELL KNOW I CAN DO, I NEED YOUR VOTE. YES. AND I’M
GOING TO NEED THOSE VOTES FROM PEOPLE IN
NEVADA, AND I WILL NEED THE VOTES IN SOUTH CAROLINA, AND
BEYOND. BUT MOST OF ALL, I NEED YOUR HEART. I DON’T HAVE THAT
BIG BANK ACCOUNT. I DON’T HAVE THAT BIG NAME FROM SOME OF THE
OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THIS RACE. AND, I AM NOT A NEWCOMER,
WITH NO POLITICAL RECORD. BUT, WHAT I DO IS GET THINGS DONE.
WHAT I HAVE IS YOUR BACK. SO, I ASK YOU TO JOIN US AT WWW.AMYKLOBUCHAR.COM. GOING
ON CAMPAIGN. THANK YOU. >>AMY AMY AMY.
>>THANK YOU. >>AMY AMY AMY.
>>THANK YOU. THANK YOU NEW HAMPSHIRE. WE ARE ON TO NEVADA,
BECAUSE THE BEST IS YET TO COME.>>[ CHEERING ]
>>I WANT TO THANK A FEW PEOPLE BEFORE WE START THE MUSIC AND
EVERYTHING. WHO HAVE BEEN HERE WITH ME IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, FROM THE VERY
BEGINNING, AND I AM SO PROUD, TO HAVE THEIR HELP AND SUPPORT. IT
HAS MEANT THE WORLD. FIRST OF ALL, MY GREAT STATE DIRECTOR,
SCOTT MERRICK. RIGHT OVER HERE. AND, MY CAMPAIGN
MANAGER, JUSTICE BOWMAN.
>>WE JUST HEARD FROM SENATOR KLOBUCHAR, GIVING SOMETHING OF A
HISTORY SPEECH. THIS ROOM IS ELECTRIC RIGHT NOW, I’VE COVERED
SEVERAL ELECTION WATCH PARTIES AND I CAN TELL YOU, THIS ONE HAS
A LOT OF ENTHUSIASM. THE PEOPLE HERE ARE REALLY SUPPORTIVE OF
THIS CANDIDATE, AND SHE WAS NOT
SUPPOSED TO MAKE IT THIS FAR. IN FACT, ONE OF THE KEYWORDS SHE
KEPT SAYING IN THIS SPEECH RIGHT NOW IS RESILIENCE. BUT SHE HAS
OF RESILIENCE, BUT SNOWSTORM WHEN SHE DECLARED HER CANDIDACY
SHE WAS EXPECTED TO GO MONTHS AFTER THAT AND SHE OUTLASTED A LOT, HER CAL COLLEAGUE SENATOR
COREY BOOKER, SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS, AND OTHERS. RIGHT NOW,
SHE IS REALLY TAKING THIS ALL IN THAT SHE HAD A GOOD VICTORY
TONIGHT. IF WE TAKE A LOOK AT THE CURRENT STANDINGS RIGHT NOW, SHE IS IN THE NUMBER
THREE SPOT, SHE HAS BEAT OUT JOE BIDEN, SHE HAS BEAT OUT
ELIZABETH WARREN, JUST UNDER SANDERS AND PETE BUTTIGIEG. WELL, THIS REALLY WAS
AN INTERESTING NIGHT TO WATCH FOR SENATOR KLOBUCHAR, ALSO
MENTIONED IN HER VERY FIRST SENTENCE WAS I’M AMY KLOBUCHAR
AND I WILL BEAT DONALD TRUMP. WHAT THAT SAYS TO
THIS ROOM IS THAT ELECTABILITY QUESTION, THAT IS WHAT WE HAVE
BEEN HEARING FROM VOTERS ABOUT THEIR NUMBER ONE CONCERN OF THE
ABILITY TO BE TRUMP THAT IS WHAT SHE ADDRESSED IN HER FIRST LINE
RIGHT NOW. SO RIGHT NOW I WILL SEND THINGS TO LIBBY, WHO IS
THERE IN MANCHESTER. LIBBY? >>Reporter: THANK YOU SO MUCH,
RHONDA, APPRECIATE THAT. I AM WITH AMBER PHILLIPS. IF YOU
NOTICE THAT AMY KLOBUCHAR HAS THAT RIGHT ON THE TOP OF THE
SCREEN, TEXT THE NUMBER. AMY KLOBUCHAR MAKING A PITCH TO
VOTERS, NOT JUST IN NEW HAMPSHIRE OF COURSE BUT
ELSEWHERE. A LOT OF HER SPEECH WE HAVE BEEN LISTENING TO HER WE
ARE SO FAMILIAR WITH THIS NARRATIVE, THIS STORY WAS
NOTHING NEW BUT AS SHE STARTED OUT AS RHONDA SAID, HELLO
AMERICA I AM AMY KLOBUCHAR, LIKE A CHANCE TO INTRODUCE HERSELF TO
THE WIDER ELECTORATE.
>>A COUPLE TIMES FUNDRAISING OR NOT MEETING THE DONOR THRESHOLD,
BUT SHE IS REALLY A SECOND OR EVEN THIRD
TIER CAMP THAT I WOULD DESCRIBE HER AND TONIGHT IS A MOMENT WERE
AMY KLOBUCHAR, THIS IS SENATOR FROM MINNESOTA WHO ISN’T REALLY
A NATIONAL FIGURE, JUST EAT, MOST LIKELY BASED ON THE RESULTS
WE ARE SEEING, JOE BIDEN AND ELIZABETH WARREN. THAT IS HUGE
FOR HER. >>WAS GO TO JEREMY BOWERS WITH SOME MORE ON OUR LATEST RESULTS,
JEREMY. >>THANKS A LOT, LIBBY. YOU
KNOW, THAT IS NOT TOO FAR OUT OF SCOPE TO SAY THAT AMY KLOBUCHAR
IS OVER PERFORMING BUT I WANT TO GIVE YOU THE HIGH LEVEL VIEW OF
WHAT IS HAPPENING IN NEW HAMPSHIRE TONIGHT. WITH ABOUT 66
PERCENT OF THE VOTE IN, WHAT WE ARE ACTUALLY SEEING RIGHT NOW IS
THAT BERNIE SANDERS IS DOING VERY WELL. HE HAS DROPPED OFF A
LITTLE BIT FROM WHERE WE WERE THE LAST TIME WE TALKED, HE WAS
IN THE HIGH 27 PERCENT FOR THE STATE, NOW HE IS AT ABOUT 26
1/2 PERCENT, AND HE IS IN THAT PURPLE COLOR, REMEMBER, WE HAVE
PETE BUTTIGIEG HERE IN THE GREEN, ANY KLOBUCHAR IN INDIGO
AND ELIZABETH WARREN IN ORANGE. THE NUMBERS THAT SEEM
INTERESTING IS THE SECOND-PLACE FIGHT BETWEEN PETE BUTTIGIEG,
AND AMY KLOBUCHAR. A BIT ON THE MATH ABOUT HOW THAT IS WORKING.
SO, WHAT WE ARE SEEING IS THIS LEAD FOR PETE BUTTIGIEG
EXPANDING IN ROCKINGHAM COUNTY. THIS IS INTERESTING FOR US
BECAUSE HE HAD A LEAD HERE EARLIER TONIGHT, BUT THAT LEAD WAS AT
LESS THAN ONE POINT AND NOW IT HAS STRETCHED TO MORE THAN 2 1/2
POINTS. THAT IS A RELATIVELY LARGE LEAD FOR HIM. AND, THIS IS
AN AREA WITH A LOT OF VOTERS. IS WILL HELP HIM PICK UP SLACK
THROUGHOUT THE EVENING, AND IT MIGHT BE A PLACE WHERE HE CAN
HELP STAY AWAY FROM KLOBUCHAR. NOW, SPEAKING OF
KLOBUCHAR, LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE PLACES WHERE SHE IS
DOING PARTICULARLY WELL. I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A LOOK HERE, TAKE A
LOOK AT MERRIMACK COUNTY. BERNIE SANDERS AND PETE BUTTIGIEG
REALLY CLOSE HERE, WE ARE LOOKING AT BERNIE SANDERS WITH
ABOUT 24 1/2 PERCENT. PETE BUTTIGIEG AT LESS THAN THAT, AND
HERE, AMY KLOBUCHAR WITHIN ONE PERCENT OF PETE BUTTIGIEG, WITH
JUST TWO PERCENT OF BERNIE SANDERS. THIS IS ACTUALLY DOING
VERY WELL FOR HER. SHE IS WELL AHEAD OF THE POLLS COMING IN,
AND THOSE RESULTS ARE THINGS THAT SHE CAN BE REALLY PROUD OF
TONIGHT. NOW, FOR A BIT MORE INSIDE THOSE RAW VOTE TOTALS, WE
HAVE STANDING BY OUR DATA SCIENTIST ON THE ELECTION, LENNY
BRUNNER. WHAT DO YOU SEE INSIDE THESE NUMBERS, GIVING YOU A BIT OF SOMETHING,
WHAT INTEREST YOU? >>, SOME CAVEATS, WE HAVE BEEN
SEEING THE NUMBERS SUPPORTING INCREASE THROUGH THE LAST COUPLE
OF MINUTES, 20 MINUTES OR SO, WE HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO
SEE THE SAME THING HAPPENING ON THE TOWNSHIP’S REPORTING SIDE
WHICH IS THE DATA THAT I NEED TO RUN THAT MODEL. WE’VE BEEN STUCK
AT AROUND 55 PERCENT REPORTING THERE FOR HALF AN HOUR OR SO. WE
DON’T REALLY HAVE FRESH OFF THE PRESS NEW PRODUCTIONS AT THE
MOMENT BUT I WILL SAY WHAT I FIND INTERESTING IS THE RACE FOR
SECOND PLACE, WHERE PETE BUTTIGIEG AND AMY KLOBUCHAR IS
VOTERS ARE COMING FROM. AND, IT SEEMS, BASICALLY, THAT PETE
BUTTIGIEG IS KEEPING FEWER OF HIS VOTERS AND WEAVERS
INSPECTED. IT SEEMED LIKE AMY KLOBUCHAR HAS BEEN DOING
EXCEEDINGLY WELL WITH LETTERS. THAT IS FASCINATING.
>>WITH MORE ON WHAT THAT MEANS FOR THE CANDIDATES IN THE LONG
RUN, LET’S TALK TO DAVID EILER. DAVID IS A COLUMNIST IN THE OPINIONS
DEPARTMENT AND HE IS ALSO A DATA ANALYST. WHAT ARE YOU SEEING? IS
THERE ANYTHING IN THIS THAT YOU FEEL LIKE IS A BIG TAKE AWAY
TONIGHT? >>YEAH. THE FIGHT FOR SECOND
PLACE THAT LENNY WAS TALKING ABOUT IS BIGGER THAN ONE MIGHT
EXPECT. SO, I AM LOOKING HERE AT A SURVEY FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF
NEW HAMPSHIRE, AND IT’S ASKING NEW HAMPSHIRE VOTERS WHO THEY
BELIEVE WOULD WIN AHEAD OF THE PRIMARY. BERNIE SANDERS RAN AWAY
WITH IT. I SEE 59 PERCENT HERE, AND EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE SINGLE
DIGITS ALMOST WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE JUDGE. SO, ESSENTIALLY
WHAT THAT MEANS IS THAT, IF YOU HAVE A SURGING
SECOND-PLACE CANDIDATE, THEY CAN GAIN MOMENTUM HEADING INTO THE
NEXT CONTEST. YOU SAW THAT IN A WAY WITH PETE BUTTIGIEG IN IOWA,
HE SORT OF TIED BERNIE SANDERS FOR FIRST, BECAUSE THERE WERE
DIFFERENT METRICS RELEASED BY THE IF SOMEONE SEARCHES THAT HAS
DOWNSTREAM EFFECTS, AS CAN REALLY MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE
RACE. IF SANDERS WINS, BUT MEETS THE SORT OF WIDELY SPREAD
EXPECTATIONS, THEN IT MAY NOT BENEFIT HIM AS MUCH AS
HE HELPS. IT’S KIND OF A WEIRD PROCESS IN THAT WAY POINT
>>THAT IS REALLY FASCINATING. NOW, IT IS IMPORTANT FOR US TO
REMEMBER THAT IN 2016 BERNIE SANDERS WON EVERY SINGLE COUNTY
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. AND, HERE WE ARE SEEING THAT PETE BUTTIGIEG
HAS ENOUGH SUPPORT IN PLACES LIKE ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, AND
OTHER PLACES THAT ARE MAYBE A LITTLE BIT SMALLER, BUT STILL
HAVE A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF SUPPORT FOR HIM, CARROLL COUNTY
HE IS RUNNING AHEAD OF SANDERS. BUT LOOK HERE,
SANDERS ISN’T EVEN IN SECOND PLACE, HE IS IN THIRD PLACE
BEHIND AMY KLOBUCHAR. NOW, SOME OF THESE AREAS ARE REALLY SMALL.
AND BY THEMSELVES, THEY DO NOT MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE. BUT,
WHAT THEY DO IS THEY SHOW US A LOT ABOUT THE PATTERN OF VOTING
AT WHAT WE ARE SEEING IS THAT, BERNIE SANDERS IS AN EXPANSIVE
NUMBER OF VOTERS HE’S EVERYWHERE ACROSS THE STATE DOING
REASONABLY WELL IN RURAL AREAS DOING REASONABLY WELL IN THE
SUBURBS, HE IS DOING REASONABLY WELL IN CITIES AS WELL. IT IS
THOSE OTHER TWO CANDIDATES, PETE BUTTIGIEG AND AMY KLOBUCHAR, WHO
ARE REALLY SPLITTING UP THAT CENTRAL HILLARY CLINTON VOTE. WE
SEE THAT THEY ARE DOING PARTICULARLY WELL IN CERTAIN
AREAS, PETE BUTTIGIEG, IN PLACES LIKE THIS, IN CARROLL COUNTY,
AND IN ROCKINGHAM, AND THEN WE ARE SEEING 80 KLOBUCHAR DOING
REALLY WELL IN TOWNSHIPS RIGHT OUTSIDE OF CITIES. SHE HAS A
SMALLER NUMBER OF TOWNSHIPS THAT SHE IS DOING PARTICULARLY WELL
IN, BUT THAT IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR US. NOW, THE LAST THING I WOULD
LIKE TO POINT OUT, WE ARE AT ABOUT 67 1/2 PERCENT REPORTING,
WE ARE RUNNING ABOUT 10 PERCENT BEHIND WHAT WE WOULD HAVE
EXPECTED, BASED ON THE 2016 TO 2012 AND 2008 CAUCUS
AND PRIMARY NUMBERS, SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT JUST
BECAUSE WE ARE A LITTLE BIT BEHIND, IT MEANS THAT WE WON’T
HAVE QUITE ENOUGH INFORMATION TO GIVE YOU AND WE HAVE LESS
CERTAINTY WHEN IT COMES TO OUR MODEL. UNTIL THEN, WE ARE GOING
TO PASS IT BACK TO JOYCE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
>>HEY JEREMY, WE ARE BACK AT THE BERNIE SANDERS WATCH PARTY
WHERE A CROWD HAS REALLY STARTED FILLING OUT. I’M JOINED WITH A
VOLUNTEER FROM NEW YORK, ACTUALLY. WHAT MAKES
SOMEONE GIVE UP A COUPLE OF WEEKS OF THEIR LIFE TO COME OUT
ON THE TRAIL, FOR A CANDIDATE THEY BELIEVE IN?
>>I REALLY THINK IT IS PASSION. IT IS A CRAZY KIND OF PASSION,
WHERE SOMEBODY REALLY BELIEVES THAT THEY CAN HELP CHANGE THE
WORLD, THEN THEY WILL SACRIFICE A LOT OF THINGS TO MAKE THAT
HAPPEN. >>WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT WHAT
IS HAPPENING HERE TONIGHT, WITH THIS BIG SHOWING OF A CROWD, AND
THE NUMBERS COMING IN. >>I THINK THE ENERGY IS
PALPABLE HERE. EVERYBODY IS EXCITED ABOUT BERNIE, WE WORKED SO HARD, WE HAVE FROZEN OUR
BUTTS OFF, LITERALLY, KNOCKING ON I THINK THE MAJORITY OF DOORS
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. I DON’T KNOW THE STATS EXACTLY WHAT WE WORKED
REALLY HARD HERE, AND I THINK THAT — I THINK THAT WE ARE
FEELING PRETTY GOOD. YOU KNOW, I’M STILL PERSONALLY CAUTIOUSLY
OPTIMISTIC BUT I FEEL REALLY GOOD. I WAS STANDING AT THE
POLLS, THE PRECINCT MOST OF THE DAY, AND, THE FEEDBACK, YOU CAN
FEEL IT. IF YOU ARE ANY KIND OF A SENSITIVE PERSON.
>>WHAT IS YOUR STORY OF SUPPORTING BERNIE SANDERS. HE
SAID HE SUPPORTED HIM IN 2015. OBVIOUSLY YOU ARE OUT HERE
TONIGHT FOR HIM. WHAT WAS THE STARTING
POINT AND ALL THAT? >>HE JUST HAS ALWAYS SPOKEN TO
ME. I ALWAYS THOUGHT — I GREW UP, I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN
CANADA. SO, YOU KNOW, I NEVER THOUGHT THAT IF ANYTHING HE WAS
PROPOSING WAS THAT RADICAL, ACTUALLY. I ALWAYS
THOUGHT THAT IT WAS JUST KIND OF COMMON SENSE, LIKE IT’S THE
GOVERNMENT’S JOB TO MAKE SURE HIS PEOPLE ARE TAKEN CARE OF,
AND THEY ARE HEALTHY AND WELL-EDUCATED, SO THAT THEY CAN
TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES. I NEVER THOUGHT THAT WAS A RADICAL IDEA.
SO, HE JUST WAS A NORMAL THING FOR ME TO SUPPORT. I THINK.
>>WHAT HAS CHANGED, IN YOUR OPINION,
AND YOUR OBSERVATIONS FROM 2016 TO 2020. DESPITE OBVIOUSLY WE
ARE NOT RUNNING AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON, WHICH I THOUGHT WAS A
VERY DIVISIVE FIGURE. I THOUGHT SHE RAN A TERRIBLE CAMPAIGN, THE
ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATS REALLY FORCING HER DOWN DEMOCRAT STARTS. I THOUGHT THAT
WAS JUST A RECIPE FOR DISASTER. AND, THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT
HAPPENED. YOU KNOW, WE KNOW, ALL ABOUT THE GAMES THAT THE
ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATS PLAY, AGAINST A LEFT CANDIDATE
LIKE A PROGRESSIVE CANDIDATE LIKE BERNIE SANDERS, I DON’T
THINK WE ARE GOING TO TOLERATED THIS TIME. I KNOW IT’S A
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT STORY. AND WE
SOMETIMES RESENT MAKING THE COMPARISON BETWEEN 2016 AND THIS
ONE BECAUSE THERE IS NO COMPARISON. IT WAS A DIFFERENT
RACE. HILLARY CLINTON WAS A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SORT OF CANDIDATE. AND NOW WE ARE
RUNNING AGAINST LIKE A WHOLE SPECTRUM OF THE DEMOCRATIC
PARTY. SO, I DON’T THINK PEOPLE SHOULD REALLY BASE IT ON THAT
ALONE. >>WE WERE TALKING EARLIER ABOUT
WHAT YOU CALL THE MYTHOLOGICAL BLACK VOTE CAN YOU EXPLAIN THAT
A BIT AND WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE BLACK VOTE?
>>I HEAR ALL THAT CONDESCENSION THAT HAPPENS WITH CANDIDATES.
RESPONDENTS ESSENTIALLY, THE BLACK VOTE IS THIS, I KNOW YOU CANNOT WIN A PRESIDENTIAL
ELECTION WITHOUT THE BLACK VOTE, AS MINIMAL AS IT IS I KNOW IT IS
A POWERFUL VOTE, AND I KNOW THEY SEE YOU THROUGH BS REALLY QUICKLY, AND I THINK THAT
THEY WILL SEE THROUGH IT THIS TIME, AND THEY WILL VOTE THE
RIGHT WAY. >>DO YOU THINK THAT BERNIE
SANDERS CAN GET THE BLACK VOTE? >>ABSOLUTELY 100 PERCENT. THE
WHOLE MESS FROM LAST TIME I THOUGHT IT WAS EXACTLY THAT, IT
WAS A MYTH. I DON’T KNOW ANYBODY THAT DID NOT VOTE FOR BERNIE
SANDERS IN 2016. ANYBODY BLACK OR ANY OTHER ETHNICITY. BERNIE SANDERS IS A CANDIDATE TO
SPEAK TO EVERYONE. EVERY HUMAN PERSON. AND SO YEAH. I THOUGHT THAT WAS
CONDESCENDING AND ALSO A LITTLE BIT INSULTING, THEN TAKING FOR
GRANTED, LIKE, OUR MENTALITY, LIKE WE LIVE IN A BUBBLE. IT WAS A BIT
INSULTING, AND I’M GLAD I’M NOT SEEING TOO MUCH OF THAT
HAPPENING, BUT I’M SEEING A LITTLE BIT OF IT HAPPENING.
>>THIS IS DEFINITELY A DIFFERENT RACE LIKE YOU SAID IN
2016. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CHATTING WITH US I REALLY
APPRECIATE IT. I WILL SEND BACK TO YOU, LIBBY.
>>THANK YOU SO MUCH, JOYCE. WE WILL LOOK AT THE NUMBERS, AND
TALK ABOUT THESE NUMBERS A LITTLE BIT, THAT WE ARE SEEING
SO FAR. WE HAVE HEARD BERNIE SANDERS DOING WELL, JAMES. THERE
IS NOT THAT MUCH OF A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BERNIE SANDERS AND PETE
BUTTIGIEG IN SECOND WHEN YOU LOOK AT ROBERT NUMBERS,
CONSIDERING HOW MANY ADVANTAGES BERNIE SANDERS CAME INTO THIS
NIGHT WITH. >>ABSOLUTELY LIBBY IT IS SORT
OF AMAZING REALLY WHEN YOU LOOK AT HOW CLOSE THIS IS BY 4000
VOTES OBVIOUSLY IT’S TOO CLOSE TO CALL, THREE IN 10 VOTES ARE
STILL OUT, THE STORY OF THE NIGHT REALLY IS THIS NEW FIGHT
BETWEEN PETE BUTTIGIEG AND AMY KLOBUCHAR FOR THE MODERATE VOTERS, WE WILL SEE
MORE ATTACKS FROM KLOBUCHAR OVER PETE BUTTIGIEG’S LACK OF
EXPERIENCE, THAT SORT OF COLLEGE-EDUCATED MODERATE TO
LIBERAL VOTERS WHO SUPPORTED HILLARY CLINTON IN 2016. PETE BUTTIGIEG AND AMY
KLOBUCHAR ARE THE TWO COMPETITORS FOR THE CORE OF THAT
CLINTON VOTE. >>YEAH. WITH THOSE SANDERS NUMBERS, I WANT TO SEE
HOW HE EXPLAINS THIS, BECAUSE WE HAVE TALKED ABOUT HOW WELL HE
DID IN NEW HAMPSHIRE HE CLEANED UP THE STATE. ONE DEMOCRATIC
STRATEGIST HE WON NEARLY ALL BUT A HANDFUL OF THE COUNTIES YEARS
AGO. HOW DOES HE GO FORWARD AND SAY JUST TRUST ME GUYS, THE REST
OF THE NATION WILL BUY INTO WHAT I AM SELLING. SO WE NEED TO DO
SOMETHING BIG TO DEFEAT PRESIDENT TRUMP. WHEN HE HAS
THESE NUMBERS, SHOWING THAT REALLY, HOME BASE FOR HIM IS THE
SUPPORT FROM MODERATES, LIKE THE JUDGE AS WELL.
>>WE’RE LOOKING OF COURSE THE CORE PERFORMANCE AT THIS POINT,
ELIZABETH WARREN AND JOE BIDEN, WARREN CAME OUT NICE AND EARLY,
PREEMPTING ANY DISAPPOINTMENT AS THE NIGHT WENT ON IT CERTAINLY
SEEMS JOE BIDEN, OUT OF THE STATE IN SOUTH CAROLINA, AS WE
HEARD THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT TALK TO ADDRESS SOUTH CAROLINA, WHAT
ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? >>YEAH. IT WAS SORT OF
REMARKABLE HOW EXPLICIT HE WAS, SAYING I DELIVERED FOR YOU
VERY BACKWARD LOOKING SPEECH HERE’S WHAT WE DID, BARACK AND I
HE SAID SPECIFICALLY. SOUTH CAROLINA IS AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN
AND WHAT DOES THE QUESTION IS, WILL IT HOLD? IT’S NOT A SURE
THING THAT IT WILL. WE SEE HIM PUTTING ALL OF HIS CHIPS ON
SOUTH GARLAND WHICH WILL ALLOW HIM TO SURVIVE TO SUPER TUESDAY, IF BIDEN IS ABLE
TO PERFORM WELL IN SOUTH CAROLINA, WHAT IT MEANS IS THAT
THE MODERATE RATE WILL CONTINUE TO BE DIVIDED, WHICH COULD BE A
LUCKY BREAK FOR MIKE BLOOMBERG WAITING IN THE WINGS, BUT ALSO
BERNIE SANDERS, WHO IS NOT RUNNING OF THE TOTALS HE DID
LAST TIME, BUT WILL STILL ACCUMULATE A LOT OF DELEGATES
TONIGHT. >>YES. ONE NUMBER THAT CLAIMANT
TODAY IN A POLL ON JOE BIDEN MAKING
HIM VERY NERVOUS IS THE SUPPORT FROM BLACK VOTERS, CLIMBING BY
22 POINTS, SINCE BEFORE THE IOWA CAUCUS. I DON’T KNOW WHAT COULD
BE BEHIND THAT, IT’S JUST ONE POLL, BUT, FOR BIDEN TO GO OUT
AND BE IN SOUTH CAROLINA TONIGHT, SAYING
ESSENTIALLY TRUST ME GUYS, I REPRESENT THE REAL DEMOCRATIC
PARTY, NOT THIS NEW HAMPSHIRE AND IOWA OLDER WHITE VOTERS
COALITION, IT’S NOT A SURE THING IS MY POINT WITH BIDEN.
>>SOMEONE ELSE TRYING TO CONNECT THEMSELVES TO BARACK OBAMA’S
MICHAEL BLOOMBERG, WE ARE SEEING ANSWER HE’S CONNECTING HIMSELF
AS A FORMER PRESIDENT, SO A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LOOKING AT THIS,
THEY ARE THE PATH TO THE FUTURE, LET’S HEAD BACK TO WASHINGTON
WITH JEREMY BOWERS, I’M THE ELECTION
INSIGHT TEAM. >>THANKED A LOT, LIBBY, WE HAVE
SOME RESULTS FOR YOU SO WE ARE AT ABOUT 70 PERCENT REPORTING
HERE TONIGHT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. THIS IS A PRETTY BIG DEAL,
BECAUSE WE ARE SEEING A LITTLE BIT OF TIME BETWEEN SANDERS AND
BRIDGET, THOSE RESULTS ARE STARTING TO TIGHTEN A BIT. WE
ARE ALSO SEEING AMY KLOBUCHAR CONTINUE ON WITH THAT REALLY STRONG SURGE OF OTHERS
AND HAVE A DISTANT THIRD PLACE FOR ELIZABETH WARREN. WHAT YOU
SEE HERE ON THE MAP IS SANDERS AND PURPLE, ON SEVERAL OF THE
COUNTIES HERE. BUT, THE MORE IMPORTANT AND MORE INTERESTING
THING IS THAT SANDERS WON EVERY COUNTY IN THE STATE IN 2016.
IT’S AN INTERESTING SIGN OF HOW TIGHT THIS RACE HAS BECOME IS
THAT PETE BUTTIGIEG JONES THREE OF THOSE COUNTIES, ONE OF WHICH
IS A RELATIVELY LARGE POPULATION DOWN IN ROCKINGHAM. SO FOR MORE
ON WHAT THESE NUMBERS MEAN FOR THE CANDIDATES, LET’S BRING IN
DAVID BYLER. DAVID IS AN OPINION COLUMNIST FOR THE POST OPINION
AND ALSO A DATA ANALYST, AND A PRETTY SWELL FELLOW. WHAT THE
RECEIVER’S TOP THREE CANDIDATES TONIGHT IT REALLY LOOKS LIKE A
THREE PERSON RACE RIGHT NOW. >>IT REALLY DOES LOOK LIKE A
THREE-PERSON RACE. WITH ALL THE TALK ABOUT KLOBUCHAR AND ABILITY
TO SURPRISE WHEN IN IOWA, IT IS EASY TO FORGET THAT BERNIE
SANDERS IS ACTUALLY IN THE LEAD, ACCORDING TO ELECTION POLLS AND
THE RESULTS WE’VE GOTTEN SO FAR. HE IS THE TORTOISE IN HIS RACE
IF YOU WELL. HE HAS HAD HIS BASE
THAT HAS STUCK WITH HIM AND STUCK WITH HIM, AND HE HAS JUST BARELY
STARTED TO INCH UP OVER THE LAST MONTH OR SO. NOW, SANDERS, THE
MEDIA CYCLE HAS BEEN HIS ENEMY A LITTLE BIT. PETE BUTTIGIEG WAS
DECLARED THE WINNER BECAUSE HE HAD DELEGATE EQUIVALENTS, MORE
OF A TIE IN IOWA SO HE IS HOPING TO GET SOME MOMENTUM OFF OF
THIS. PETE BUTTIGIEG IS SHOWING IN THE SELECTION THAT HE CAN
STILL HANG WITH HIS DEMOGRAPHICS. HE DOES WELL
WITH OLDER AND WHITE VOTERS, STATES LIKE THIS ARE GOOD FOR
HIM. AND, KLOBUCHAR IS BECOMING THE STORY OF THE EVENING, SHE IS
THE ONE IT IS HARDEST TO PROJECT OUTWARD MEANS FOR HER. BECAUSE
HER COALITION IS NOT SUPER BROAD, SHE MADE AN EARLY STAND
IN IOWA AND NEW HAMPSHIRE, SHE GETS A BUMP IN THE NEXT FEW
DAYS, WE DON’T ACTUALLY KNOW WITH WHOM BUMP WILL COME. THOSE
ARE OUR THREE BIG CANDIDATES. BERNIE SANDERS IS AT ABOUT 27 PERCENT OF THE
VOTE, PETE BUTTIGIEG AT 24 AND AMY KLOBUCHAR AT ABOUT 20. THERE
ARE SOME OTHER INTERESTING STORIES TONIGHT AND I WANT TO
MAKE SURE WE TALK ABOUT, FIRST, LET’S START WITH JOE BIDEN. THIS
HAS BEEN A ROUGH NIGHT FOR THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN, THERE ABOUT EVEN
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE RIGHT NOW LOOKING TOWARD SOUTH CAROLINA
WONDERING WHAT THE NIGHT WILL MEAN IF JOE’S NUMBERS CONTINUE
FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT >>BIDEN HAS BEEN SETTING
EXPECTATIONS LOWER AND LOWER AND LOWER IN IOWA AND NEW HAMPSHIRE,
TRYING TO TAMPER DOWN EVEN IN THE LAST FEW DAYS, AND OPENING SALVO
ABOUT I DIDN’T DO WELL IN IOWA IT DOESN’T LOOK LIKE I WILL DO
WELL IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. BUT, IT IS PRETTY HARD TO SPIN 8.5
PERCENT. IT’S HARD TO THINK OF A WAY IN WHICH THIS IS EXCELLENT FOR
BIDEN. WE WILL HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE, IT’S POSSIBLE WE WILL SEE
MORE IN NORTH CAROLINA THAN MOST THINK THAT WE HAVE SEEN A DROP
OFF IN NATIONAL POLLS RIGHT AS MICHAEL BLOOMBERG HAS INCREASED
TO STANDING, SO FAR OVER THE PAST WEEK OR SO, PRETTY BEARISH INDICATORS
FOR BIDEN THOUGH HE IS STILL IN THE RACE.
>>LET’S TALK ABOUT SOMEBODY ELSE WHO HAD INTERESTING POLL
NUMBERS COMING IN TONIGHT AND WAS REALLY EXPECTED TO DO WELL
AND MAYBE DOES NOT HAVE THAT MUCH OF A PATH FORWARD. JOE
BIDEN AT LEAST HAS A SOUTH CAROLINA TO TALK ABOUT WHERE
THERE ARE NONWHITE LETTERS THAT HE DOES PARTICULARLY WELL WITH.
ELIZABETH WARREN, THIS IS HER AREA, HER PEOPLE WHERE SHE
SHOULD BE DOING WELL. WITH 9.3 PERCENT OF THE VOTE AND 18,000
VOTES, JUST BEHIND HER FRONT-RUNNERS. WELL AHEAD OF
THE CAMPAIGN. >>WARREN WAS SOUNDING
OPTIMISTIC IN HER SPEECH EARLIER TONIGHT, SO ON AND SO FORTH. BUT
LIKE YOU SAID IT’S HARD TO FIGURE OUT EXACTLY WHERE SHE
GOES FROM HERE. NEW HAMPSHIRE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A STATE THAT IS
TAILOR-MADE FOR HER. IT’S HARD TO TELL HOW SHE COMES
BACK IN NEVADA OR SOUTH CAROLINA, SHE IS A CONSENSUS
CANDIDATE WHO IS NOT BUILDING A CONSENSUS RIGHT NOW AND THERE IS
A HIGH RISK HIGH REWARD STRATEGY. HIGH REWARD IF YOU
ACTUALLY BRING THE PARTY TOGETHER AND GET IT UNIFIED,
FAST, BUT IT’S HIGH RISK IN SCENARIOS LIKE THIS, WHERE YOU
BECOME THE SECOND CHOICE OF A LARGE NUMBER OF VOTERS AND YOU
AREN’T THE FIRST CHOICE FOR ENOUGH OF THEM, AND YOU POST
DISAPPOINTING SHOWERS THAT SHOWING THAT MAKES
YOUR DONORS NOT HAPPY. >>BACK OUT TO THE MAP ONE MORE
TIME I JUST WANT TO SHOW YOU WHERE WE ARE WITH 72.3 PERCENT
OF THE VOTE IN, WE ARE SHOWING SANDERS WITH A RELATIVELY
COMMANDING LEAD. THE PETE BUTTIGIEG CLOSING THAT GAP
BEHIND AMY KLOBUCHAR DOING REALLY WELL. AND ELIZABETH
WARREN A DISTANT FOURTH. WITH THAT, WE WILL TOSS IT TO JORGE
IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. >>HOW ARE YOU DOING. AS YOU CAN
SEE IT IS GETTING SUPER LOUD, THE CROWD BEHIND US
CHANTING PRESIDENT PETE AND WAVING BANNERS UP A I AM JOINED
NOW WITH A RESIDENT OF AMHERST, NEW HAMPSHIRE. FRANKIE, YOU WERE
TALKING ABOUT HOW YOU HAVE SEEN VIRTUALLY MAJOR EVERY MAJOR
CANDIDATE IN THIS ELECTION. I’M WONDERING HAVING SEEN ALL THESE
CANDIDATES, WHAT GOT YOU ON BOARD WITH BUDDHA JUDGE? — WITH
PETE BUTTIGIEG? >>I SUPPORT PETE, HE’S NOT THE MOST PROGRESSIVE CANDIDATE
OF THE MAJOR EXPERIENCE, HE’S GOT EXPERIENCE IN THE
PRIVATE SECTOR, THE GOVERNMENT, THE MILITARY, AND HE UNDERSTANDS
SOMETHING ABOUT THE WORLD OUTSIDE OF AMERICA. I’M WATCHING
A DOCUMENTARY ON VIETNAM, AND PRESIDENT JOHNSON
ADMITS THAT HE COULD NOT UNDERSTAND HOW PEOPLE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES THINK. ONCE YOU BECOME
PRESIDENT, IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MUCH YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR HOME STATE, YOU HAVE TO
UNDERSTAND THE WHOLE COUNTRY, AND YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THE
WORLD. AND I THINK PETE BUTTIGIEG EXAMPLE 5 STATS.
>>HAVING SEEN OTHER CANDIDATES, ONE OF THE CRITICISMS OF PETE BUTTIGIEG IS
THAT HE DOES NOT HAVE EXPERIENCE THAT’S ONE OF THE THING BIDEN
WENT AFTER HIM QUITE STRONGLY ABOUT AND YOU’RE SAYING THAT
NOW, HAVING EXPERIENCE MEANS MORE THAN HAVING EXPERIENCE IN
WASHINGTON. >>EXACTLY, HE HAS A DIFFERENT
RANGE OF EXPERIENCE AND I LIKE TO SAY, BIDEN IS NOT ONE TO TALK,
BECAUSE HE WAS EIGHT YEARS YOUNGER THAN PETE WHEN HE FIRST
BECAME A SENATOR. >>LET ME ASK YOU, YOU KNOW,
TONIGHT, RIGHT NOW HE IS IN SECOND PLACE BEHIND BERNIE. ARE
THERE ANY SURPRISES FOR YOU IN TERMS OF HOW HE IS DOING, AND
HOW AMY KLOBUCHAR IS DOING ANY WHEN YOU’RE LOOKING AT SAYING
WELL, I DIDN’T EXPECT THIS PERSON TO BE DOING AS WELL OR AS
POORLY? >>I THINK THE TWO SURPRISES, BY
THE WAY AMY IS MY SECOND CHOICE, AMY IS DOING MUCH BETTER THAN I
SUSPECTED, AND BIDEN IS DOING MUCH WORSE THAN I EXPECTED.
>>ELIZABETH WARREN, FROM NEARBY MASSACHUSETTS, SHE PUT A LOT OF
EFFORT IN, YOU HAD SAID YOU HAD SEEN HER MAYBE ONCE OR TWICE.
ARE YOU SURPRISED AT HOW SHE FARED TONIGHT AS WELL?
>>NO, I THINK WHAT HAPPENED WITH ELIZABETH, IS THAT I FEEL
LIKE SHE STOPPED ANSWERING QUESTIONS, AND JUST
SORT OF HAD THESE TALKING POINTS, SHE STARTED SOUNDING
LIKE A TAPE LOOP, AND I THINK PEOPLE GOT TIRED OF THAT.
WHEREAS PETE ACTUALLY ANSWERS QUESTIONS. I DON’T KNOW IF
YOU’VE NOTICED, IT’S ALMOST LIKE HE PAUSES BEFORE HE ANSWERS,
WHICH INDICATES HE’S LISTENING TO THE PERSON, HE’S THINKING
ABOUT THE ANSWER, IT DIDN’T SOUND LIKE ELIZABETH WAS
LISTENING TO THE PERSON. YOU DON’T WANT A PRESIDENT WHO DOES
NOT LISTEN TO PEOPLE. WE HAVE ONE LIKE THAT
RIGHT NOW. WE DON’T WANT ANOTHER PRESIDENT THAT DOES NOT LISTEN
TO PEOPLE. >>THAT IS ACTUALLY SOMETHING
TALKING TO VOTERS AT DIFFERENT EVENTS THEY HAVE SAID A LOT,
EVEN IF THEY WEREN’T ON THE BUDDHA JUDGE — THE PETE BUTTIGIEG
BANDWAGON YET, THEY APPRECIATE HIS CALM WHEN HE’S ANSWERING
QUESTIONS. I HAVE HAD SOME PEOPLE TELL ME THAT, AND I DON’T
KNOW IF THIS IS YOUR CASE OR MAYBE YOUR SOCIAL CIRCLE OF
PEOPLE, WHO LIKE BERNIE SANDERS BUT ARE AFRAID THAT HE WOULD
PUSH AWAY TOO MANY MODERATES. IN THE PEOPLE YOU TALK TO, FRIENDS
AND NEIGHBORS, DO YOU HAVE PEOPLE LIKE THAT YOU MAY BE
VOTED FOR HIM IN 2016, LOOKING AT PETE BUTTIGIEG NOW
SOMEONE WHO IS MORE ELECTABLE? >>ACTUALLY, I’LL BE HONEST WITH
YOU A LOT OF MY FRIENDS ARE REPUBLICANS. AND MY BEST FRIEND
IS A BERNIE SUPPORTER, AS IS HER HUSBAND. SO, I CAN’T ANSWER THAT
QUESTION, BUT HAS NOT BEEN MY EXPERIENCE.
>>FRANKIE, THANKS A LOT FOR TALKING WITH US. LIBBY, I’LL
TOSS IT BACK TO YOU IN MANCHESTER.
>>THANK YOU SO MUCH, JORGE. YOU CAN SEE THERE WERE THINGS STAND. JAMES, PUT THIS
INTO PERSPECTIVE FOR US WE ARE WAITING FOR VETS TO COME IN
TONIGHT. >>ABSOLUTELY, BERNIE SANDERS
GOT 60 PERCENT OF THE VOTE IN 2016 AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON,
AND OBVIOUSLY, THE MODERATES ARE SPLINTERED, WE TALKED ABOUT WHY
THAT IS SUCH A HUGE ISSUE, AND WHY IT DOES MATTER, BUT IF YOU
KIND OF ADD TOGETHER THE MODERATES IN THIS RACE, MORE
THAN 50 PERCENT OF PEOPLE WHO ARE UNABASHEDLY
MODERATE, AND PETE BUTTIGIEG IS AN INTERESTING FIGURE, WE HAVE
NOT HEARD FROM HIM YET TONIGHT. WHEN HE GOT INTO THE RACE A YEAR
AGO OBVIOUSLY HE WAS AN UNKNOWN, FINISHING THIRD IN THE RACE FOR
DNC CHAIRS, LAST YEAR. HE INITIALLY POSITIONED HIMSELF IN
THE LIBERAL LANE AND YOU KNOW, HE ENDORSED MEDICARE FOR ALL, HE
WAS OUT THERE TALKING ABOUT MAKING THE SUPREME COURT 15
SEATS, HE WAS SORT OF TRYING TO PLAY TO THE BERNIE
SIDE OF THE PARTY, HE FAMOUSLY WON AN AWARD FOR WRITING AN
ESSAY ABOUT HOW BERNIE SANDERS, WHEN THAT LIEN GOT CROWDED WITH OTHERS, KAMALA HARRIS AND
ELIZABETH WARREN WERE TRYING TO GO FOR THE BERNIE SANDERS
SUPPORTERS HE DRIFTED TOWARD THE MODERATE LANE, AND IT HAS BEEN
KIND OF A MASSIVE SUCCESS. HE HAS
MAINTAINED I THINK SOME OF THE LIBERALS THAT HE INITIALLY
APPEALED TO A YEAR AGO. BUT HE IS ALSO NOW PERCEIVED AS THIS
REASONABLE MODERATE CANDIDATE, BECAUSE OF
THE TOWN THAT HE HAS TAKEN. >>HOW TO PUT REASONABLE
MODERATE CANDIDATE IN QUOTE MARKS, BECAUSE THIS
PRIMARY WE ARE IN, LET’S TAKE A PAUSE AND LOOK AT HOW REMARKABLY
LEFT IT IS. PETE BUTTIGIEG WILL COME ON THE STAGE AND SAID
LISTEN I WOULD BE THE MOST PROGRESSIVE PRESIDENT EVER
ELECTED BASED ON A COUPLE OF MY BASELINE ISSUES THAT ALLOW ME TO
SPEAK TO TODAY’S DEMOCRATIC PARTY. KLOBUCHAR’S
CAMPAIGN WAS SAYING THE SAME THING TO ME, WHEN I ASKED THEM,
HOW DO YOU TRY TO BRIDGE THE BERNIE SANDERS PEOPLE AND THEY
SAID LISTEN, WE ARE PROGRESSIVE, TOO. AND THAT IS — AS THE SITE
CONTINUES, IF IT BECOMES SOMETHING THAT IS LIKE SANDERS
VERSUS ONE OR TWO OF THE MORE PROGRESSIVE CAMPS, SORRY,
SANDERS TO THE MORE MODERATE CAMPS. THAT IS A
DISCUSSION AND DECIDE THAT THEY WILL HAVE TO HAVE. CAN THE MODERATES SAY TO THE BERNIE
SANDERS PEOPLE LISTEN, I’M STILL REALLY PROGRESSIVE COMPARED TO,
YOU KNOW, 2008, EVEN 2012. >>THAT IS WHAT ELIZABETH WARREN
WAS TRYING TO DO. SHE STOPPED AT A DINER YESTERDAY AND THE WOMAN
SAID, I’M LIBERAL BUT I THINK WE SHOULD SUPPORT A MODERATE
BECAUSE I WANT TO BE TRUMP AND WARREN SAID I AM IN THE MIDDLE,
BETWEEN BERNIE ON THE ONE SIDE, AND KLOBUCHAR AND BUDDHA JUDGE
ON THE OTHER, BUT IT IS HARD TO BE A CONSENSUS CANDIDATE, WHEN
THERE IS NO CONSENSUS BEHIND YOU, THAT STRATEGY OF USUALLY DIDN’T WORK HERE. PEOPLE AT THIS
POINT ARE SEEING IT AS THIS BINARY CHOICE AND YOU’RE
ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. BERNIE, IF HE IS GOING TO WIN, HE HAS TO HAVE
HIS COALITION HE WILL HAVE TO BRING INTO PEOPLE WHO DO NOT
SUPPORT HIM RIGHT NOW. LIKEWISE SOMEONE LIKE AMY KLOBUCHAR WILL
HAVE TO CONVINCE LIBERALS THAT SHE IS WITH THEM ON MOST OF THE
ISSUES. IF YOU LOOK AT HILLARY CLINTON’S PROPOSAL IN 2015 FOR
GOVERNMENT SPENDING, FOR EXAMPLE, IT IS A TINY FRACTION
OF WHAT EVERY DEMOCRAT IN THIS FIELD IS TALKING ABOUT AND IT IS
A REMINDER THAT THE PARTY IS MUCH FURTHER TO THE LEFT IN SOME
WAYS, BERNIE SANDERS CONTRIBUTION OR LEGACY IS THAT
HE SORT OF MOVED WHAT SOCIAL SCIENTISTS CALL THE OVERTON
WINDOW OF THE DEBATE THAT NOW IT IS SORT OF A GIVEN THAT WE WILL
HAVE UNIVERSAL HEALTHCARE, WE WILL HAVE A $15 MINIMUM WAGE.
EVEN IF SANDERS DOES NOT GET THOSE VOTES, HE ABSOLUTELY HAS
PULLED THE PARTY TO THE LEFT. >>UPDATED NUMBERS, LET’S
COMPARE THIS TO FOUR YEARS AGO, AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. YOU
MAY BE IMPORTANT POINT TWO LOOK AT
THESE NUMBERS FOR MODERATE CANDIDATES, THAT SOMEONE HAS
VOTED FOR VERSUS BERNIE SANDERS. BUT, THERE WAS THIS QUESTION OF,
OKAY, TAKE BERNIE SANDERS OUT OF THIS, WHO STAY STRONG. TALK TO
US ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO, HOW OTHER CANDIDATES PULLED TOGETHER
THE VOTE BUT SEPARATE FROM THAT. DONALD TRUMP. I’M NOT TRYING TO
COMPARE BERNIE SANDERS TO DONALD TRUMP AT THIS IS THE QUESTION OF
WHERE THEY FALL IN THE SPECTRUM, IF THESE CANDIDATES THEY LOOK WE
HAVE SUPPORT FOR A MORE MODERATE CANDIDATE, WHO WILL DROP OUT?
WHO WILL CLEAR THE LANE FOR THE HEAD-TO-HEAD OF PROGRESSIVE
VERSUS MODERATE? >>THAT THESE COLLECTIVE ACTION
PROGRAM TO PROBLEM DEMOCRATS ARE FACING. YOU HEAR FROM A LOT OF
PEOPLE FRUSTRATED THAT JOE BIDEN DENIED
SOME OF THESE YOUNGER CANDIDATES THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHINE BECAUSE
HE CROWDED OUT THE FIELD AND TOOK UP ALL THE
FUNDRAISING. DONALD TRUMP IS AN INTERESTING CASE BECAUSE BY THIS
TIME FOUR YEARS AGO, HEREINAFTER, THIS WAS HIS FIRST
WHEN HE FINISHED SECOND IN IOWA, AND HE WAS TRANSCENDING IDEOLOGICAL BOUNDARIES. HE
WASN’T A TRADITIONAL CONSERVATIVE HE WAS SAYING A LOT
OF THINGS THAT APPEALED TO INDEPENDENTS. DESPISE NEW
HAMPSHIRE AS WE TALKED ABOUT IT’S AN IMPORTANT BASE FOR
INDEPENDENCE. >>ABSOLUTELY I THINK YOU GOT
SOME KIND OF NOD — SOME NON-CONSERVATIVES BUT HE WAS
ALSO GETTING SOME IDEOLOGUES. AND, SANDERS IS NOT DOING THAT
RIGHT NOW. SANDERS HAS A PRETTY LIMITED BASE. I THINK THERE ARE
SOME RED FLAGS FOR HIM AND EXIT POLLING NUMBERS THAT SUGGESTING
HE IS NOT EXPANDING THE ELECTORATE. SHE NEEDS TO DO TO
BE ABLE TO WIN THE NOMINATION. A WIN IS A WIN. BUT, THERE ARE DEFINITELY
— ETIQUETTE IS A REMINDER THAT FOUR YEARS AGO, THE REPUBLICAN
RACE AT THAT POINT WAS SO FRAGMENTED, THE DEMOCRATIC
RACE IS A TWO-WAY RACE AND A LOT OF PEOPLE VOTED FOR BERNIE
SANDERS DID SO BECAUSE THEY WERE REALLY VOTING AGAINST HILLARY
CLINTON. YOU KNOW, THERE WERE SOME NON-CLINTON CANDIDATE THAT
PERSON WOULD HAVE GOTTEN A LOT OF VOTES THAT SANDERS GOT,
PEOPLE WHO WERE SUPPORTING THEM FOUR YEARS AGO WERE NOT
IDEOLOGICALLY READY. >> JUST BECAUSE SANDERS COMES OUT
TOP TWO IN THESE FIRST TWO STATES DOES NOT MEAN THAT HE HAS
THE COALITION. I THINK WE NEED TO KEEP HAMMERING HOME THAT
POINT OF HOW WHITE THESE STATES ARE, HOW OLD THESE DATES ARE,
YOU KNOW, HOW MUCH ATTENTION THERE IS ON THESE STATES MEDIA,
YOU KNOW, VOTERS TAKE THINGS SERIOUSLY. WE ARE GOING TO GET
INTO A MUCH MORE DIVERSE SET OF STATES IN THE COMING WEEKS.
WE’LL HAVE 14 STATES ON ONE DAY ALONE. YOU KNOW, NEVADA STATES WERE SANDERS
SHOULD SHINE BECAUSE THERE’S THIS ORGANIZING EFFORT HERE. BUT
I JUST DON’T THINK THE DEMOCRATS HAVE SETTLED THEIR HEAD VERSUS
THEIR HEART DEBATE. YOU KNOW, JUST BECAUSE SANDERS COMES OUT
ON TOP IN THESE STATES, EXIT POLLING, WE SOUGHT SIX OF 10 DEMOCRATIC
VOTERS SAY STILL WANT SOMEBODY WHO CAN BE TRUMP AND A TOP
PRIORITY. >>SANDERS HAS TRIED TO MAKE
THAT POINT, THAT HE CAN BE TRUMP PRECISELY FOR THAT REASON. AMY
KLOBUCHAR CAME OUT AND SAID I AM AMY KLOBUCHAR AND I CAN BE
DONALD TRUMP. SOME HAVE MENTIONED RED FLAGS BUT WE SHOULD MENTION WHAT SANDERS DOES
HAVE, HE HAS A LOT OF CREDIBILITY WITH ORGANIZED
LABOR. JOE BIDEN HAS THOSE RELATIONSHIPS, I THINK A LOT OF
UNIONS WOULD ENDORSE OTHER CANDIDATES BUT THEY DIDN’T WANT
TO ENFORCE — ENDORSE BIDEN, BUT I THINK THERE ARE UNIONS HE
MIGHT GET BEHIND HIM. YOU KNOW, HE COMES FROM THE ORGANIZED
LABOR MOVEMENT, THAT IS HUGE IN NEVADA, THE WORKERS OF THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER ENDORSEMENT EXCITED
TO SWING NEVADA, THEY COULD DECIDE TO ENDORSE IT IT WILL BE
A CLOSE RACE, SO, IT’S DEFINITELY WORKING FOR SANDERS,
CAN HE MAKE INROADS WITH WHITE VOTERS? FOUR YEARS AGO HE
SPENT ALL THE TIME SINCE TRYING REALLY HARD TO SUPPORT THOSE
COMMUNITIES OF COLOR. >>YEAH. WE TALKED A LOT ABOUT
HOW PETE BUTTIGIEG HAS BEEN PULLING LOWER WITH NONWHITE
VOTERS, SPECIFICALLY BLACK VOTERS. THIS TIME AROUND I
THINK SANDERS HAS NOT HAD TO CONFRONT THAT, BECAUSE IT WAS
INITIATED THE DEGREE THAT IT WAS DISCUSSED IN 2016.
>>ONE OF THE THINGS COMING UP AS WE TRY TO LOOK FORWARD TO THE
COMING WEEKS, PETE BUTTIGIEG HAS GOTTEN SUCH A HARD TIME,
DESERVINGLY SO, FOR NOT HAVING ANY REAL RESONANCE WITH THE
BLACK COMMUNITY. BUT, AMY KLOBUCHAR HAS EVEN LESS. AMY
KLOBUCHAR HAS NONE. YOU KNOW, FOUR YEARS
AGO, BERNIE SANDERS ONE BY MORE THAN 20 POINTS HERE. 40 POINT IN
SOUTH CAROLINA, AMY KLOBUCHAR, THE QUINNIPIAC POLL THAT AMBER
MENTIONED, WAS AT ZERO PERCENT AMONG AFRICAN-AMERICANS, PETE
BUTTIGIEG IS AT FIVE PERCENT, STILL NOT
IMPRESSIVE. I THINK AS WE START TO SCRUTINIZE KLOBUCHAR MORE,
BECAUSE SHE IS NOW REALLY ON THE HUNT, SHE GOT THE BRONZE
TICKET OUT OF NEW HAMPSHIRE, SHE WILL START TO GET QUESTIONS
ABOUT HER RECORD AS A DISTRICT ATTORNEY, ABOUT HER
RELATIONSHIPS WITH LACK VOTERS, ABOUT HER LACK OF AFRICAN-AMERICAN STAFF,
WHICH BERNIE DOES HAVE, THOSE ARE ALL THINGS THAT ARE GOING TO
CONFRONT HER IN THE COMING DAYS AND WEEKS.
>>WHAT DID BERNIE SANDERS LEARN FROM 2016 WHEN IT COMES TO A
GAME LIKE SOUTH CAROLINA OR NEVADA?
>>YOU HAVE TO BUILD RELATIONSHIPS. I THINK HE
REALIZED THAT HE DID NOT TRY TO COURT A LOT OF THESE PEOPLE.
SANDERS IS NOT A NATURAL POLITICIAN. HE ACTUALLY DOESN’T
REALLY LIKE PEOPLE. YOU KNOW, REALLY. HE LIKES SPEAKING
TO BIG CROWDS BUT HE DOES NOT LIKE
>>IS MORE IDEAS AND PEOPLE. >>RIGHT, OR THE TRANSACTIONAL
NATURE OF POLITICS PRETTY SO I THINK HE JUST GOES TO MEET WITH
THE 10 STATE SENATORS YOU HAVE TO MEET WITH TO BE A CREDIBLE
CONTENDER, YOU KNOW, TO GO CAMPING FOR THEM WHEN THEY HAVE RACES, THAT HAS CHANGED.
NOW HE IS. SANDERS HAD AN ACTIVE POLITICAL OPERATION, FOR PEOPLE
WHO HAVE DONE THE KINDS OF THINGS THAT TRADITIONAL
CONVENTIONAL POLITICIANS WANT TO DO AND HE GOTTEN BETTER AT IT
BUT HE STILL DOES NOT ENJOY DOING IT. HE’S NOT LIKE JOE
BIDEN WHO LOVES THAT, THAT’S HIS FAVORITE PART. AMY KLOBUCHAR REALLY ENJOYS THAT, I THINK
SANDERS IS A PROUD CURMUDGEON. >>THAT’S PART OF HIS APPEAL. THOSE LESSONS
LEARNED ARE, HOW DOES HE APPLY THEM AND WORK THEM IN STATES
HEADING FORWARD. LET’S GO BACK TO JEREMY BOWERS FOR THE LATEST
NUMBERS, WE HAVE SOME RESULTS STILL COMING IN. JEREMY?
>>ABSOLUTELY, WE HAVE A RACE CALLED TONIGHT WHICH IS SO
INTERESTING FOR ME TO GET TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT
THE MAP, WE HAVE A RACE CALLED NOT IN THE DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY
HAVE BEEN WATCHING ALL NIGHT BUT IN THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARY THAT
IS ALSO HAPPENING AT THE EXACT SAME TIME HERE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE,
IT’S NOT A SURPRISE, BUT WE ARE PREPARED TO CALL THIS RACE FOR
PRESIDENT TRUMP. NOW, THE THING THAT YOU SEE ON THIS BOARD THAT
MIGHT BE A BIT INTERESTING, IS THAT YOU SEE THE PRESIDENT HAS
86 PERCENT OF THE VOTES HERE, BUT WE ARE SEEING BILL WELD WITH ABOUT NINE PERCENT OF THE VOTE. THE
QUESTION YOU MIGHT HAVE IS, IS IS NORMAL FOR A PRESIDENT TO
HAVE A CHALLENGER WITH THIS MUCH. WELL, THAT MAY NOT BE TRUE
IN OTHER STATES, BUT IT IS CERTAINLY TRUE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE.
THIS IS ONE OF THOSE PLACES WHERE AN INCUMBENT PRESIDENT CAN
SEE EIGHT OR NINE OR 10 PERCENT GOING TO A CHALLENGER. AND, IT
IS NOT PARTICULARLY MEANINGFUL BECAUSE THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE
A DELEGATE FOR BILL WELD THAT COMES OUT OF THIS. LET’S GET
BACK TO THE PRIMARY THAT EVERYONE IS ARE INTERESTED IN, TAKE A LOOK AT
WHAT IS HAPPENING HERE. THE NUMBERS ARE NOT MOVING TOO MUCH.
WE ARE AT ABOUT 77 PERCENT REPORTING. REMEMBER, WE HAVE
SANDERS AND PURPLE, WE HAVE PETE BUTTIGIEG IN GREEN, AMY
KLOBUCHAR HERE IN INTEGRAL — INDIGO AND ELIZABETH WARREN IN
ORANGE, THE MAP LOOKS ABOUT THE SAME AS THE LAST TIME WE TALKED
BUT THESE NUMBERS ARE TIGHTENING PRETTY BERNIE SANDERS IS STILL
THE FRONTRUNNER AT ABOUT 26 PERCENT, BUT, WE HAVE PETE
BUTTIGIEG WITH A LITTLE OVER 24, AMY KLOBUCHAR HOLDING 20 AT
NUMBER THREE THERE WERE 20 PERCENT OF THE VOTE, AND
ELIZABETH WARREN IN A DISTANT FOURTH WITH 9.3 PERCENT. NOW,
ONE OF THE THINGS WE SEE IN THIS RACE, IS THAT BERNIE SANDERS,
THAT IS ONLY ABOUT A TWO POINT MARGIN OVER PETE BUTTIGIEG, BUT
WE FEEL RELATIVELY CONFIDENT IN SAYING THAT HE HAS A REALLY STRONG LEAD. AND, FOR MORE ON WHY WE HAVE
SOME OF THAT CONFIDENCE, I WOULD LIKE TO BRING IT OVER HERE TO
LENNY BRONNER. LENNY IS THAT IT IS SCIENTIST HERE ON ELECTION
SINCE 18, LENNY YOU HAVE BEEN RUNNING A MODEL TONIGHT THAT
GIVES US AN IDEA OF WHERE WE THINK THERE ARE VOTES LEFT FOR
EACH OF THE CANDIDATES AND YOU HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT
IT LOOKS LIKE BERNIE SANDERS HAS A PRETTY STRONG CHANCE TO CLOSE
OUT THE NIGHT TONIGHT. WHY IS THAT, GIVE ME INSIGHT FROM THE
MODEL ON WHAT WE ARE SEEING. >>YEAH, IT THE BIG DEAL WE ARE
SEEING IS THAT THIS TWO PERCENT GAP HAS PERSISTED FOR A WHILE
NOW. BASICALLY PETE BUTTIGIEG IS RUNNING OUT OF VOTES LEFT TO BE COUNTED, THAT MEANS THAT AS
OF PERSISTED BECOMES MORE LIKELY THAT BERNIE SANDERS WILL HOLD
ON. THAT BEING SAID, THESE TWO OTHER
ESTIMATES WHERE PETE BUTTIGIEG AND BERNIE SANDERS REMAIN
OVERLAPPING SO IN NO WAY WE CAN SAY THAT BERNIE SANDERS WILL
DEFINITELY WIN THIS, BUT IT SEEMS MORE LIKELY.
>>WHEN LENNY IS TALKING ABOUT CONFIDENCE INTERVALS, THE THING
THAT HE IS MENTIONING IS THAT THESE ARE ESSENTIALLY LIKE,
MULTIPLE WORLDS, SCENARIOS IN WHICH EACH OF THE CANDIDATES,
YOU KNOW, PERFORM IN A PARTICULAR WAY AND WE RUN HUNDREDS OF THEM,
THOUSANDS OF THEM SOMETIMES IN THOSE SCENARIOS PETE BUTTIGIEG
PULLS AHEAD TO BEAT BERNIE SANDERS BUT IN MORE OF THEM,
BERNIE SANDERS STAYS AHEAD. NOW, THAT’S THE INSIGHT WE HAVE FOR
YOU HERE IN STUDIO AS THOSE VOTES COME AND WE WILL CONTINUE
KEEPING YOU UP-TO-DATE. UNTIL THEN, WE WILL KICK IT BACK TO
LIBBY IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. BACK TO YOU.
>>THANKS SO MUCH, JEREMY. LET’S TALK ABOUT SOME PEOPLE WE HAVE
NOT BEEN TALKING ABOUT TONIGHT. IT TELLS A GAP OR JUST SOMEONE
TO PUT A TON OF EFFORT INTO THIS ESTATE. MICHAEL BENNETT AS WELL
WHO DROPPED OUT, ANDREW YANG ALSO PUT A LOT OF
TIME AND ENERGY INTO THIS STATE, HE HAS NOW DROPPED OUT. LET’S
TALK ABOUT TOM SAWYER, LET’S TALK ABOUT ELSIE GABBERT, HOW
HAVE THEY IMPACTED THE CONVERSATION COMING INTO
TONIGHT. >>IT’S DIFFICULT TO SAY BECAUSE THEY WERE ALWAYS
SUCH THIRD TIER CANDIDATES IN THIS RACE. KELSEY AND ANDREW
HAVE THEIR NICHE SUPPORT AND I THINK THEY ARE NICHE CANDIDATES,
THAT DRAW PEOPLE TO THEIR CHARISMA, TULSA GABBERT
WITH MORE DIFFERENT FOREIGN POLICY POSITIONS, ESPECIALLY SHE TENDS
TO ALIGN HERSELF WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP, I TALKED TO THE
REPUBLICAN LEANING VOTERS SAYING HE’S VOTING FOR CHELSEA FOR THAT
REASON. BUT, I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY OF THEM EXPAND THEIR BASE BEYOND
THESE NICHE MOMENTS. >>ANDREW YANG GOT A COMMENT
STARTED ABOUT UNIVERSAL BASIC INCOME,
WHICH IS SOMETHING I THINK SIGNIFICANT IN TERMS OF PEOPLE
NOW UNDERSTANDING AND KNOWING WHAT THAT IS, YOU TALK ABOUT
REPARATIONS AND THINGS LIKE THAT. BUT, WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON
SOME OF THESE OTHER VOTERS? >>JOE BIDEN ONLY GOT ABOUT
10,000 MORE VOTES THAN TULSA GABBERT, WHICH
IS KIND OF A REMARKABLE THING FOR A FORMER VICE PRESIDENT I
THINK GABBERT GOT A LOT OF REPUBLICAN VOTES, SHE’S ON FOX
NEWS ALL THE TIME, SHE HAS BEEN A VERY POPULAR FACE AND SHE KIND
OF TERRIFIES ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATS IN THE WAY THAT SHE
THINKS SHE CAN RUN AS A THIRD-PARTY CANDIDATE SHE MADE A
COMMENT A COUPLE DAYS AGO THAT THINKING MAYBE SHE WILL. AND SO,
I THINK SHE IS IN SOME WAYS AS FAR AS
ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATS ARE CONCERNED, FRANKLY SANDERS
CAMPAIGN, SHE WAS THE COCHAIR OF THE SANDERS CAMPAIGN AND THEY
MAY SEE HER AS A SKUNK IN THE GARDEN PARTY. YOU KNOW, IT IS
REMARKABLE THAT DEVOL PATRICK, THERE’S SO MUCH DISSATISFACTION,
BUT AT THE STATE PARTY DINNER ON
SATURDAY NIGHT WERE ALL THE CANDIDATES VOTE, DEVOL PATRICK
CAMPAIGN ACTUALLY PAID FOR IT TICKETS, FOR SPECTATORS, TO SIT,
AND THEY BROUGHT A CHEERING SECTION FOR PATRICK AND HE WENT
AFTER BERNIE. EVERYONE STAYED TO SEE SANDERS PUT A JUDGE AND
WARREN SUPPORTERS AS SOON AS PATRICK STARTED SPEAKING
EVERYONE FILED OUT OF THE ARENA BUT IT’S INTERESTING BECAUSE
PATRICK GAVE A PRETTY GOOD SPEECH ACTUALLY, CLEARLY WORKED
HARD ON IT, AND HE WAS SAYING, YOU KNOW, WE NEED TO REJECT
FALSE CHOICES AND HE SORT OF NODDED TO THAT CAMPAIGN AND TO
POSITION HIMSELF AS WHAT WARREN IS TRYING TO DO AND NO ONE WAS
LISTENING. AND, PART OF THAT WAS THAT HE GOT IN WAY TOO LATE, BUT
TO YOUR QUESTION, HE HAD NO IMPACT ON THIS RACE. AND YOU
KNOW, IT IS HARD TO SEE HOW HE WILL SUDDENLY HAVE AN IMPACT IN
NORTH CAROLINA. >>LET’S HAD TO ROCKET COLD AND
STILL AT THE KLOBUCHAR EVENT, RHONDA?>>Reporter: THAT’S RIGHT, WE
ARE STILL HERE ALL THE PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO LEAVE, AMY
KLOBUCHAR HAS LEFT, SHE STAYED AROUND AND SHOOK HANDS FOR A
LITTLE BIT TO THANK HER SUPPORTERS HEREINAFTER. I AM
JOINED BY MY COLLEAGUE JENNA JOHNSON, WHAT HAPPENS HERE, SHE SAID SHE WILL
TAKE US TO NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA AND DO WELL BUT SHE
DOES NOT HAVE THAT SAME APPEAL, THAT WE ARE SEEING FROM MINORITY
VOTERS. WHAT DO YOU THINK SHE WILL HAVE TO DO. TO KEEP THAT MOMENTUM?
>>FIRST OF ALL, SHE HAS MOMENTUM RIGHT NOW. THIS WAS A BIG NIGHT FOR HER.
REALLY BLOWING PAST EXPECTATIONS. THIS TAKES HER
FROM THE LOWER TIER, INTO KIND OF THAT CORE GROUP OF
CANDIDATES, WHO ARE BEING CONSIDERED. THE PROBLEM IS,
GOING FORWARD, A LOT OF STATES ARE COMING UP VERY QUICKLY. AND,
SHE IS GOING UP AGAINST CANDIDATES WHO ARE PULLING
BETTER NATIONALLY, HAVE A LOT MORE MONEY, AND HAVE BIGGER
ORGANIZATIONS THAN SHE DOES. YOU KNOW, HER STAFF IS VERY
CONFIDENT ABOUT NEVADA, WHICH WILL BE HAVING THE CAUCUSES
THERE. BUT, SHE HIRED HER FIRST STAFF THERE IN LATE NOVEMBER.
OTHER CAMPAIGNS HAVE BEEN THERE FOR MONTHS. A BIG SIGN OF WHERE HER HEAD IS AT
RIGHT NOW, IS THE NEXT BIG AMOUNTS TO VENT IS A FUNDRAISER
TOMORROW NIGHT IN NEW YORK CITY. SHE NEEDS TO RAISE A LOT OF
MONEY REALLY QUICKLY. AND TRY TO CATCH
UP, SO THAT SHE CAN CONTEND WITH THESE OTHER CANDIDATES IN ALL OF
THESE STATES WE HAVE COMING UP. VOTERS AND FUNDRAISING ARE HER
NEXT STEPS. THANK YOU SO MUCH. WE WILL GO AHEAD AND SEND THINGS
TO LIBBY IN MANCHESTER. >>THANKS SO MUCH RHONDA. THIS QUESTION OF
MONEY IS A BIG ONE, AND AS YOU HEARD, AMY KLOBUCHAR HAS HER
WORK CUT OUT FOR HER.
>>SHE HAS RAISED AN IMPRESSIVE SUM BUT SHE DOES NOT HAVE A
SUPER PAC SHE IS COMPETING AGAINST MIKE BLOOMBERG IN SUPER
TUESDAY STATES, SHE IS VERY ACCESSIBLE, BUT THAT WILL ONLY
GET YOU SO FAR TO BUILD AN ORGANIZATION IN THESE STATES.
THE QUESTION IS WILL THE FUNDING MATERIALIZE, AND WHEN
YOU ARE REALLY IDEOLOGICAL LIKE BERNIE SANDERS OR ELIZABETH
WARREN TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO RAISE SO MUCH MONEY BECAUSE THEY
HAVE REALLY FIRED PEOPLE UP. AMY KLOBUCHAR IS A MODERATE. IT IS
HARDER TO RAISE SMALL DOLLARS AND LARGE AMOUNTS FROM PEOPLE
WHO ARE KIND OF MILD-MANNERED, TALKING ABOUT THE NEED TO RELAX
AND THAT DOESN’T PLAY WELL ONLINE.
>>ESPECIALLY WHEN LIKE BERNIE SANDERS HAS HIS PROGRESSIVE
LANE, AND THEN SHE IS COMPETING WITH PETE BUTTIGIEG SUPPORTERS.
YOU KNOW, LIKE, HE HAS HAD THIS RISE AS A STAR DARLING CANDIDATE
AMONG THE OBAMA PEOPLE WHO MAYBE DID NOT FAVOR BIDEN, OR YOU
KNOW, DO NOT LIKE WARREN OR BERNIE BECAUSE THEY’RE TOO LIBERAL. HOW DOES KLOBUCHAR
CONVINCE PEOPLE TO DONATE TO HER?
>>ONE OF THE THINGS COMING UP IN THIS QUESTION IS WHO CAN BE
DONALD TRUMP. YOU COULD THROW A STONE INTO THE BUILDING ACROSS
THE STREET, WE SOUGHT DONALD TRUMP SPEAKING HERE LAST NIGHT
IN MANCHESTER AND REALLY TRYING TO TAKE THE ATTENTION AND SAY,
ALL EYES ARE ON AFTER I WILL BE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. AND, I AM
INTERESTED IN WHAT YOU GUYS THINK IN TERMS OF HOW EFFECTIVE
THAT WAS FOR TRUMP BUT ALSO HOW EFFECTIVE IT MAY HAVE BEEN FOR
DEMOCRATS MESSAGING, AS THEY WERE HERE TO SAY GOT A FOIL, LET
ME TELL YOU ABOUT HOW I WILL BEAT PRESIDENT TRUMP RATHER THAN
THROWING STONES AT EACH OTHER.
>>BIDEN WAS REALLY CLOSE TO WHERE TRUMP WAS BIDEN FRAMED IT AS LOOK, TRUMP IS IN MANCHESTER,
I’M IN MANCHESTER HE IS AFTER ME HE IS SCARED OF ME AND THAT IS
WHEN I THOUGHT BIDEN IN PARTICULAR PUT ON AN OLD PAIR OF
JEANS TALKING ABOUT THE GENERAL ELECTION, YOU KNOW, I WANT SOMEONE OUT OF THE WHITE
HOUSE, HE WAS YELLING HE WAS BOOMING PEOPLE WERE CHEERING. HE TRIED TO FRAME
IT AS TRUMP IS HERE FOR ME, I ALSO HEARD PEOPLE ON THE OTHER
END OF THIS, LIKE MICHAEL BENNETTS A SIMILAR STUFF, TRUMP
IS YOU’RE TRYING TO MESS WITH US DEMOCRATS, TRYING TO GET US TO
DIVIDE EACH OTHER, IT WAS A SMART PLAY ON THE PRESIDENTS
PART BECAUSE HE GOT THEM TALKING ABOUT IT.
>>YESTERDAY WAS THE DAY THE PRESIDENT RELEASED HIS BUDGET.
SO, THEY DID OFFER A GOOD PEG FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE, BERNIE
SANDERS AT HIS RALLY, SAID THAT IT IS A MATTER OF PRIORITIES,
THESE ARE MY PRIORITIES. AND, TRUMP IS A HELPFUL FOIL FOR EVERYONE. THEY ALL WERE
CONTENT TO ATTACK TRUMP INSTEAD OF EACH OTHER.
>>SO IS SOMEONE LIKE AMY KLOBUCHAR PETE BUTTIGIEG ABLE TO
MAKE THAT APPEAL WITH SMALL DOLLAR DONORS SAYING I AM THE
MOST LIKELY CANDIDATE TO BE DONALD TRUMP.
>>SHE CAN ALSO RAISE, AMY KLOBUCHAR IS HAPPY TO TO TAKE
BACK SOME OF THE CONTRIBUTIONS. AMY KLOBUCHAR WOULD BE HAPPY TO
RAISE THE KIND OF MONEY PETE BUTTIGIEG HAS RAISED POINT
>>DESPITE HER JABS ABOUT THE WINE CASE.
>>I THINK SHE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A GOOD FUNDRAISER THERE.
>>CAN I POINT OUT ONE INTERESTING PRICKLY QUESTION ON ELECTABILITY
IS AMY KLOBUCHAR’S GENDER. I POINTED OUT BECAUSE IN THE EARLY BEGINNING OF THE RACE,
DEMOCRATIC VOTERS WERE SKITTISH BECAUSE HILLARY CLINTON LOST,
SHE TALKED A LOT ABOUT HOW HER GENDER WAS A PART OF THAT. IS
ANOTHER WOMAN GOING TO LOSE, THAT WAS AT THE VERY BEGINNING
LAST SUMMER OF THIS RACE. I TALKED TO AMY KLOBUCHAR
SUPPORTERS WHO SPENT DAYS AND DAYS KNOCKING ON DOORS ALL
DAY LONG I ASKED DID THAT QUESTION COME UP? THEY TOLD ME,
NO. GENDER HAS FADED FROM THE BACKGROUND, FROM THEIR PERSPECTIVE, IT IS NOT
SOMETHING THAT MAKES DEMOCRATS SKITTISH. THIS IS
SOMETHING I AM WATCHING FOR AS IT PLAYS OUT GOING FORWARD,
BECAUSE WE DO NOT HAVE A DIVERSE TOP GROUP OF
DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES, BUT THERE IS DIVERSITY IN OTHER WAYS.
GENDER, PETE BUTTIGIEG IS SEXUAL ORIENTATION. YOU KNOW, HOW DOES
THAT WORK WITH THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY THAT STILL DOES NOT REALLY
KNOW THE SURE WAY TO BEAT PRESIDENT TRUMP AND WHY THEY
LOST FOUR YEARS AGO.
>>WE HAVE SEEN THE LATEST NUMBER IS COMING WITH 79.7
PERCENT OF PRECINCT REPORTING, YOU CAN SEE THERE HOW THINGS ARE SHAKING UP. — SHAPING UP
RATHER. I THINK WHAT IS ASTOUNDING ARE THE LOW NUMBERS
FOR ELIZABETH WARREN AND JOE BIDEN JAMES.
>>NEITHER WARREN OR BIDEN IS GOING TO GET ANYWHERE CLOSE TO
50 PERCENT, WHICH IS WHAT THEY NEED TO BE VIABLE, TO TAKE
DELEGATES AWAY FROM NEW HAMPSHIRE. IT IS HARD TO SEE
HOW WARREN WINS A STATE. YOU CAN HAVE MORE THAN 1100 FIELD STAFFERS. IS IT MASSACHUSETTS? THAT IS A BIG PROBLEM. AFRICAN AMERICANS
BUT WE WILL HAVE TO WATCH, WILL THAT FIREWALL HOLD? I DON’T
THINK IT’S A SURE THING. BIDEN ALSO HAS A CASH CRUNCH, HE’S
BEEN CANCELING ADVICE. HE IS RELYING ON BIG DOLLAR DONORS BUT
THAT MONEY HAS NOT BEEN MATERIALIZING. AND, HIS CAMPAIGN
HAS BEEN REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT MONEY. SO, BIDEN’S DEPUTY
CAMPAIGN MANAGER SAID YESTERDAY JUST LIKE THE WORLD SERIES, AND
NEW HAMPSHIRE IS GAME TWO, WE WILL PLACE HER GAME SEVEN. BUT,
AT A CERTAIN POINT, IF YOU DON’T HAVE A BULLPEN, YOU CAN’T FORCE
A GAME SEVEN.
>>WE ARE WATCHING BOTH THE SANDERS STATE AS WELL AS THE
BUDDHA JUDGE STATED, LOOKS LIKE PETE BUTTIGIEG WILL BE COMING
OUT SOON AND WE WILL BRING THAT TO YOU AS SOON AS HE DOES TAKE
THE STAGE, IN FRONT OF HIS SUPPORTERS. SO, IF YOU ARE THESE
CANDIDATES, LIKE ELIZABETH WARREN, WHERE ARE YOU PUTTING
YOUR EFFORTS RIGHT NOW? WE ALREADY KNOW THAT JOE BIDEN IS
PENDING AT ALL ON A SOUTH CAROLINA HE IS ALREADY THERE
TONIGHT BUT IF YOU ARE ELIZABETH WARREN, WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING AT
IN TERMS OF YOUR CALCULATIONS? >>YOU HAVE TO GO TO NEVADA
WHICH IS SUCH A TALL ORDER FOR HER FOR ANY CANDIDATE, BECAUSE
NEVADA IS A CAUCUS. IT IS LIKE IOWA, YOU HAVE TO HAVE
EXTREME ORGANIZING SKILLS AND THAT PASSIONATE PEOPLE WILLING
TO PAY FOR A BABY’S SITTER TO SPEND HOURS GOING TO THESE
CAUCUS SITES, NEVADA HAS HAD TO SWITCH UP AT THE LAST MINUTE HOW
THEY WILL COUNT THESE BALLOTS BASED ON WHAT HAPPENED IN IOWA.
THAT BEING SAID, TO PUT A POINT IN ELIZABETH WARREN’S COLUMN
EARLIER THIS SUMMER I MET IN NEVADA WITH DEMOCRATIC OFFICIALS
AND THEY WERE ASKED WHO IS ALREADY ON THE GROUND THERE?
WARREN IS THE NAME THAT KEPT POPPING UP. BUT, WARREN IS ALSO
SOMEONE WHO IS EXTREMELY WELL ORGANIZED AND NEW HAMPSHIRE AS
WELL. THAT IS SORT OF HER SKILL, IS GETTING VOLUNTEERS IN EACH
PRECINCT TO BE KNOCKING ON DOORS, AT THE EARLIEST POINT
THAT THEY CAN. IT COMES DOWN TO
NEVADA FOR HER I THINK I’M GOING TO SAY THAT AT THIS POINT, SHE
HAS TO HAVE A STRONG SHOWING. >>I THINK THAT IS RIGHT. I
THINK THEY WANT TO PLAY IN SOUTH CAROLINA. SHE SPENT A LOT OF
TIME THERE. HER EVENTS IN SOUTH CAROLINA HAVE DRAWN MOSTLY WHITE
CROWDS. SHE HAS STRUGGLED, SHE EVEN HAD AN EVENT AT A BLACK
CHURCH DURING THE POST-SERVICE THING, BUT IT
WAS ALMOST ENTIRELY A WHITE AUDIENCE THAT SHOWED UP. SO, THAT IS A REAL
CHALLENGE FOR WARREN, TWO POINT >>SO YOU ARE MICHAEL BLOOMBERG
WATCHING ALL OF THIS UNFOLD, YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT WHERE YOU PUT
YOUR ENERGY, MONEY IS NOT SO MUCH OF A CONCERN FOR HIM. WHAT
DO YOU TAKE AWAY FROM THIS NIGHT, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT?
>>FULL STEAM AHEAD. FOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG I THINK IT COMPLETELY
REWRITES HOW YOU CAMPAIGN. YOU HAVE A LOT OF
MONEY AND MONEY CAN BUILD AND STRUCTURE. IT IS TO BE THE
OTHER WAY AROUND YOU GOT INTO STRUCTURE KNOCKING ON DOORS YOU
GET SUPPORT, PEOPLE WHO DONATE. MICHAEL BLOOMBERG TO BUY ADS AND
SET UP STRUCTURE. IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO ROLLOUT
ENDORSEMENTS EARLY ON. AFTER THE IOWA CHAOS, HE ASKED THEM TO
DOUBLE THEIR AD BUYS. THEY ARE HIRING A
PROCESS OF THE CAN, HE SAID I DON’T WANT ANY OF YOUR MONEY,
PLEASE RECOMMEND YOUR BEST PEOPLE YOU CAN HIRE YOUR TOP
ANALYTICS TO COME WORK FOR ME. LESS THAN ONE PERCENT OF THEM
WERE GOING TO BE FINE ON HIS PLATE. BUDDHA JUDGE — PETE BUTTIGIEG
IS EMERGING AS THE UP BY 10,000 VOTES MEANS
THAT PETE BUTTIGIEG WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SAY I AM THE GUY. PEOPLE IN DC COME ON THE MORE
MODERATE LANE, THING LET’S STOP SANDERS, HOW TO DO THAT. LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU HAS A
CONCERN ABOUT BERNIE SANDERS.
>>SANDERS IS JEWISH BUT HIS RECORD ON ISRAEL AND PALESTINE, THAT WAS THE GROUP SPENDING ATTACK ADS AGAINST IOWA, THAT
GROUP >>WE WILL TALK ABOUT THAT IN A
MOMENT, PETE BUTTIGIEG IS COMING OUT, WE ARE ALSO WATCHING THE
SANDERS STAGE, WE WILL KEEP OUR EYE ON ALL OF THIS UNFOLDING,
LET’S GO NOW TO THE PETE BUTTIGIEG EVENT HERE IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE. >> THANK YOU. THANK YOU NEW
HAMPSHIRE. THANK YOU SO MUCH. ONE MORE TIME FOR OUR PHENOMENAL
NEW HAMPSHIRE STATE COCHAIRS, THANK YOU FOR YOUR LEADERSHIP,
AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMITMENT. THANK YOU TO OUR
EXTRAORDINARY NATIONAL COCHAIRS. KNOWING HOW
TO RAISE THE ROOF AND HOW TO GET OUT THE VOTE. THANK YOU TO CHASTITY, THE LOVE
OF MY LIFE, YOU KEEP ME GROUNDED. I WANT TO CONGRATULATE MY
COMPETITORS AND THEIR SUPPORTERS ON THEIR CAMPAIGNS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. I ADMIRED SENATOR
SANDERS WHEN I WAS A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT. I CONGRATULATE HIM ON
HIS STRONG SHOWING TONIGHT. AND, I WANT TO CONGRATULATE SENATOR
KLOBUCHAR, SENATOR WARREN, VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, AND ALL OF OUR
DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES AND SUPPORTERS. AND, I KNOW THAT
WE ALL SHARE THE SPIRIT THAT WE HEARD FROM SOME OF OUR
VOLUNTEERS THAT HAVE EARLIER TODAY WELCOME
TO COMPETING CANDIDATE WITH CHANCE OF VOTE BLUE, NO MATTER
WHO. WE ARE ON THE SAME TEAM. OVER THE PAST YEARS,
SOME TWO DOZEN CAMPAIGNS HAVE
CRISSCROSSED THE STATE, EACH LAYING CLAIM TO THE ABILITY TO
BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER, TURN OUT THE VOTE, AND MOVE AMERICANS
TOWARD A BRIGHTER FUTURE. THAT’S TWO. AND, HERE IN A STATE THAT GOES BY THE MOTTO LIVE FREE
OR DIE, YOU MADE UP YOUR OWN MINDS. YOU ASSERTED THAT FAMOUS
INDEPENDENT STREAK. AND, THANKS TO YOU, A CAMPAIGN THAT SOME
SAID SHOULD NOT BE HERE AT ALL, HAS SHOWN THAT WE ARE HERE TO STAY.>>PRESIDENT PETE, PRESIDENT
PETE. >>SO MANY OF YOU, SO MANY OF
YOU TURNED OUT. DIEHARD DEMOCRATS. INDEPENDENTS
UNWILLING TO STAY ON THE SIDELINES, AND EVEN SOME NEWLY FORMER
REPUBLICANS, READY TO VOTE FOR SOMETHING NEW. READY TO VOTE FOR
A POLITICS DEFINED BY HOW MANY WE CALL IN, INSTEAD OF BY WHO WE PUSH OUT. SO MANY OF YOU CHOSE TO MEET A NEW ERA OF
CHALLENGE WITH A NEW GENERATION OF LEADERSHIP. SO MANY OF YOU DECIDED THAT A
MIDDLE-CLASS MAYOR AND A VETERAN OF THE INDUSTRIAL MIDWEST WAS
THE RIGHT CHOICE TO TAKE ON THIS PRESIDENT, NOT IN SPITE OF THAT
EXPERIENCE, BUT BECAUSE OF IT. NOW, OUR CAMPAIGN MOVES ON TO
NEVADA, TO SOUTH CAROLINA, TO COMMUNITIES ACROSS OUR COUNTRY. AND, WE WILL
WELCOME NEW ALLIES TO OUR MOVEMENT AT EVERY STEP. WE WILL GO FORWARD,
THANKS TO THE WORK OF OUR EXTRAORDINARY TEAM OF STAFF AND ORGANIZERS, I MAY BE BIASED
ON THIS BUT I AM ALSO RIGHT, WE HAVE THE FINEST TEAM IN POLITICS TODAY.>>[ CHEERING ] >>I WANT YOU TO KNOW, THAT YOU
DO NOT JUST REPRESENT ME WELL, YOU INSPIRE ME, AND I CAN NOT
SAY ENOUGH, HOW THANKFUL I AM TO OUR EXTRAORDINARY TEAM.>>THANK YOU. AND, WE KNOW THAT
TEAM STRETCHES ACROSS THE COUNTRY. WE GO FORWARD FUELED BY HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF
GRASSROOTS SUPPORTERS, FROM THE WOMAN IN MINNESOTA WHO DONATED
IN HONOR OF THE WIFE SHE LOST TO LUNG CANCER, TO THE VETERAN FROM
CONNECTICUT, WHO SAID $19.68 AND THE HONOR OF THE YEAR THAT HE
SERVED IN VIETNAM. THIS CAMPAIGN BELONGS TO THEM. AND IF OUR CAMPAIGN MOVES YOU, I
HOPE YOU WILL GO TO WWW.PETEFORAMERICA.COM AND CHIP
IN WHATEVER YOU CAN. WE GO FORWARD KNOWING
THAT THIS IS THE CHANCE, ARE ONLY CHANCE, NOT JUST TO END THE
ERA OF DONALD TRUMP, BUT TO LAUNCH THE ERA THAT WE NOW MUST
COME NEXT. AND, THE STAKES COULD NOT BE HIGHER. WE CANNOT AFFORD
TO MISS THE MARK, OR TO MISS THIS MOMENT. WE MUST GET THIS
RIGHT. WITH AMERICANS LIVING UNDER AN UNACCOUNTABLE
PRESIDENT, WHO WILL CUT TAXES FOR CORPORATIONS, AND THEN CUT
MEDICARE AND MEDICAID AND SOCIAL SECURITY FOR THE REST OF US, WE
MUST GET THIS RIGHT. THE WHEN PEOPLE OF COLOR FEAR
FOR THEIR OWN PLACE IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY, WHILE INFANTS ARE TORN
FROM THEIR PARENTS AT THE BORDER, WE MUST GET THIS RIGHT. AND WHEN A COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF PUNISHES WAR HEROES AND PARDONS
CRIMINALS WHILE SYSTEMATICALLY DEMOLISHING THE CREDIBILITY OF
OUR COUNTRY IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD WE DARE NOT RISK FOR MORE
YEARS OF THIS PRESIDENCY, WE MUST GET THIS RIGHT.>>PRESIDENT PETE. PRESIDENT
PETE. PRESIDENT PETE. >>NOW, WE ARE CLEAR EYED ABOUT THE CHALLENGES
BEFORE US AND WE MUST BE EQUALLY CLEAR ABOUT THE CHOICE AT HAND., BALANCE TO OUR
ECONOMY, GUARANTEEING HEALTHCARE. [ CAPTIONER
TRANSITIONING ]>>WE HAVE BEEN TOLD BY SOME
THAT YOU MUST EITHER BE FOR REVOLUTION OR THE STATUS QUO
PEER MOST AMERICANS DO NOT SEE WHERE THEY
FIT IN THAT POLARIZED VISION AND WE CANNOT DEFEAT THE MOST
DIVISIVE PRESIDENT IN MODERN AMERICAN HISTORY BY TEARING DOWN
ANYONE WHO DOES NOT AGREE WITH US 100% AT THE PRESENT TIME.
>>[ APPLAUSE ]>>AMERICANS WANT THE FREEDOM TO
MAKE CHOICES FOR THEMSELVES ON HEALTHCARE, OR ON ANY OTHER
ISSUE, NOT TO HAVE WASHINGTON DECIDE FOR THEM, AND A POLITICS
OF MY WAY OR THE HIGHWAY IS A ROAD TO REELECTING DONALD TRUMP.
VULNERABLE AMERICANS DO NOT HAVE THE LUXURY OF PURSUING
IDEOLOGICAL PURITY OVER AN INCLUSIVE VISION.
>>[ APPLAUSE ] >>WE KNOW THIS. WE ALSO KNOW BETTER THAN TO TRY
TO DEFEAT SUCH A DISRUPTIVE PRESIDENT BY RELYING ON THE SAME WASHINGTON FRAMEWORK AND
MINDSET. AFTER ALL, IF TODAY’S WASHINGTON WERE SERVING AMERICA
WELL, A GUY LIKE DONALD TRUMP WOULD HAVE NEVER COME WITHIN
CHEATING DISTANCE OF THE OVAL OFFICE IN THE FIRST PLACE.
>>[ APPLAUSE ]>>SO TO WIN AND TO GOVERN, WE
NEED TO BRING NEW VOICES TO OUR CAPITAL, WE
NEED TO GET WASHINGTON STARTING TO WORK MORE LIKE OUR BEST RUN
CITIES AND TOWNS RATHER THAN THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
>>[ APPLAUSE ]>>AND I KNOW THAT WHEN YOU TALK
THIS WAY, YOU MIGHT GET DISMISSED AS A NAÏVE NEWCOMER.
BUT A FRESH OUTLOOK IS WHAT MAKES NEW BEGINNINGS POSSIBLE.
IT IS HOW WE BUILD A NEW MAJORITY.
>>[ APPLAUSE ] >>AND ELECTION AFTER ELECTION HAS
SHOWN US THAT PUTTING FORWARD A NEW PERSPECTIVE IS HOW DEMOCRATS
WIN THE WHITE HOUSE, AND WE WILL WIN THE WHITE HOUSE.
>>[ APPLAUSE ]>>SO AS WE TAKE THIS CAMPAIGN
TO THE REST OF THE COUNTRY, LET’S WELCOME THAT DEBATE, LET’S
HAVE THAT DEBATE, LET’S DEBATE WHAT THE BEST WAY FORWARD IS,
THE BEST WAY TO EARN THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE BEST WAY TO UNIFY
THIS COUNTRY. AND THE ANSWERS, THEY LIE IN A
VISION THAT BRINGS AMERICANS TOGETHER, NOT ONLY IN THE
KNOWLEDGE OF WHAT WE MUST STAND AGAINST BUT IN THE CONFIDENCE OF
KNOWING WHAT WE ARE FOR. >>[ APPLAUSE ]
>>THIS IS THE POWERFUL MAJORITY WE ARE GATHERING TOGETHER, FROM
DAVENPORT TO DOVER, FROM CARSON CITY TO COLUMBIA, IT IS A
COALITION OF ADDITION, NOT SUPPRESSION — NOT SUBTRACTION. IT IS A MOVEMENT REACHING INTO
CHURCH BASEMENTS AND BARBERSHOPS AND UNION HALLS CARRYING THE
SAME VALUES WITH US EVERYWHERE WE GO. WE SAW THAT COALITION
AWAKENING, WE SAW TONIGHT IN CITIES AND SUBURBS IN THOSE
INDUSTRIAL TOWNS ALL TOO OFTEN LEFT BEHIND.>>[ APPLAUSE ]
>>AND TOGETHER, WE ARE BUILDING A FUTURE WHERE THERE WILL BE NO
SUCH THING AS AN UNINSURED AMERICAN OR AN UNAFFORDABLE
PRESCRIPTION. >>[ APPLAUSE ]>>THAT IS WHAT WE CAN DELIVER
WITH A PLAN MOST AMERICANS CAN GET BEHIND, MEDICARE FOR ALL WHO
WANT IT, ENSURING CARE FOR EVERY AMERICAN BUT TRUSTING YOU TO
CHOOSE WHETHER YOU WANT IT AND WHEN YOU WANT IT.
>>[ APPLAUSE ] >>TOGETHER WE WILL STOP
ENABLING CORPORATE GREED AND START
RAISING WAGES, EMPOWERING WORKERS, AND MAKING GOOD ON THE
IDEA THAT ONE JOB OUGHT TO BE ENOUGH.
>>[ APPLAUSE ] PRESIDENT PETE, PRESIDENT PETE,
RESIDENT PETE —
>>WHAT ARE WE DOING FOLKS? >>TOGETHER WE WILL STOP SENDING
OUR YOUNG ONES INTO THE TEETH OF ENDLESS WARS —
>>WE ARE CUTTING OVER TO BERNIE SANDERS, YOU CAN SEE THAT HE IS MOVING ON
STAGE. WE WILL CUT OVER FROM PETE BUTTIGIEG TO BERNIE
SANDERS. >>[ APPLAUSE ]>>THANK YOU.
>>[ APPLAUSE ] BERNIE, BERNIE, BERNIE, BERNIE,
— >>THANK YOU.
>>[ APPLAUSE ] >>THANK YOU.
>>[ APPLAUSE ]>>[ LAUGHTER ]
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] >>THANK YOU. THANK YOU.
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] >>THANK YOU. THANK YOU, NEW HAMPSHIRE.
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] >>THANK YOU, NEW HAMPSHIRE. LET ME TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO
THANK THE PEOPLE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE FOR A GREAT VICTORY
TONIGHT. >>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>AND LET ME THANK THE THOUSANDS OF
VOLUNTEERS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. THANK YOU.
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] >>WHO KNOCKED ON DOORS IN THE
RAIN AND THE SNOW AND THE COLD. THE REASON THAT WE WON TONIGHT
AND NEW HAMPSHIRE WE WON LAST WEEK IN IOWA —
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>– IS BECAUSE OF THE HARD
WORK OF SO MANY VOLUNTEERS. >>[ APPLAUSE ]
>>AND LET ME SAY TONIGHT, THAT THIS VICTORY HERE, IS THE
BEGINNING OF THE END FOR DONALD TRUMP.
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>WITH VICTORIES BEHIND US,
POPULAR VOTE AND THE VICTORY HERE TONIGHT, WE ARE
GOING TO NEVADA, WE ARE GOING TO SOUTH CAROLINA, WE ARE GOING TO
WIN THOSE STATES AS WELL. >>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]
>>AND TONIGHT I WANT TO TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS MY
APPRECIATION AND RESPECT FOR ALL OF THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES WE
RAN AGAINST. PETE BUTTIGIEG, AMY KLOBUCHAR, ELIZABETH WARREN, JOE
BIDEN, AND WHAT I CAN TELL YOU, WITH ABSOLUTE CERTAINTY, AND I KNOW I SPEAK
FOR EVERY ONE OF THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES, IS THAT NO MATTER
WHO WINS, AND WE CERTAINLY HOPE IT IS GOING TO BE US, WE ARE
GOING TO UNITE TOGETHER. WE ARE GOING TO UNITE TOGETHER AND
DEFEAT THE MOST DANGEROUS PRESIDENT IN
THE MODERN HISTORY OF THIS COUNTRY.
>>[ APPLAUSE ] >>AND THE REASON I BELIEVE WE
ARE GOING TO WIN, IS THAT WE HAVE AN UNPRECEDENTED GRASSROOTS
MOVEMENT FROM COAST TO COAST, OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE —
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] >>– THE REASON WE ARE GOING TO
WIN IS BECAUSE WE ARE PUTTING TOGETHER AN UNPRECEDENTED
MULTIGENERATIONAL, MULTI RACIAL POLITICAL MOVEMENT.
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] >>AND THIS IS A MOVEMENT FROM
COAST TO COAST, WHICH IS DEMANDING THAT WE FINALLY HAVE
AN ECONOMY AND A GOVERNMENT THAT WORKS FOR ALL OF US, NOT WEALTHY
CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTORS. >>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>AND I WANT TO THANK ALL OF
THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE WORKED AND CONTRIBUTED TO OUR CAMPAIGN BUT MAKE THE POINT THAT AT THIS
POINT IN THE CAMPAIGN, WE ARE TAKING ON BILLIONAIRES AND WE
ARE TAKING ON CAMPAIGNS FUNDED BY BILLIONAIRES.>>[ APPLAUSE ]
>>BUT WE ARE GOING TO WIN, BECAUSE WE HAVE THE AGENDA THAT
SPEAKS TO THE NEEDS OF WORKING PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THIS COUNTRY. HEALTHCARE IS A HUMAN RIGHT, NOT
A PRIVILEGE. >>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>THE WEALTHY AND POWERFUL WILL
START PAYING THEIR FAIR SHARE OF TAXES. WE WILL MAKE PUBLIC COLLEGES AND
UNIVERSITIES TUITION FREE AND CANCEL ALL STUDENT DEBT.
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>UN LIKE DONALD TRUMP, WE KNOW
THAT CLIMATE CHANGE IS VERY REAL AND AN EXISTENTIAL CRISIS FOR
OUR PLANET. WE ARE PREPARED TO TELL THE FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY
THAT THEIR SHORT-TERM PROFITS ARE NOT MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE
FUTURE OF OUR PLANET. >>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>WE ARE GOING TO END A RACIST
AMBROSE EVEN — A RACIST AND BROKEN CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM.
WE ARE GOING TO PASS COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION
REFORM. OUR GUN SAFETY POLICIES WILL BE
DETERMINED BY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, NOT THE NRA.
>>[ APPLAUSE ] >>AND UNDER OUR ADMINISTRATION,
IT WILL BE WOMEN, NOT THE GOVERNMENT, WHO CONTROL THEIR
OWN LIVES. >>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]
>>OUR CAMPAIGN IS NOT JUST ABOUT BEATING TRUMP, IT IS ABOUT
TRANSFORMING THIS COUNTRY. >>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]
>>IT IS ABOUT HAVING THE COURAGE TO TAKE ON WALL STREET , THE INSURANCE COMPANIES, THE
DRUG COMPANIES, THE FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY, THE
MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX. >>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>SO TONIGHT I WANT TO THANK
THE PEOPLE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE FOR THIS GREAT VICTORY, THANK OUR VOLUNTEERS,
AND URGE ALL AMERICANS TO JOIN OUR EFFORTS TO TRANSFORM THIS
COUNTRY AT BERNIE SANDERS.COM.>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ]>>SO IT IS ON TO NEVADA, IT IS
ON TO SOUTH CAROLINA, IT IS ON TO WIN THE DEMOCRATIC
NOMINATION, AND TOGETHER, I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT WE WILL
DEFEAT DONALD TRUMP. THANK YOU ALL VERY MUCH.
>>[ CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ] 7 7>>BERNIE SANDERS GREETING HIS
SUPPORTERS HERE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, WALKING OFFSTAGE TO
THE CHEERS AND ON TO NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA FOR BERNIE
CHANDLER’S — BERNIE SANDERS. JEREMY, WHAT IS THE LATEST?
>>A LITTLE BIT HAS HAPPENED SINCE THE LAST TIME WE TALKED TO
YOU. WE HAVE SOME MORE VOTES BUT NO BIG CHANGES IN WHERE THE
CANDIDATES ARE SITTING. LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THAT MAP AND SEE
WHAT IS GOING ON. WE ARE ABOUT 85% REPORTING NOW, WE ARE
GETTING PRETTY FAR INTO THE NIGHT. BERNIE SANDERS CONTINUES
TO HOLD HIS 26% TO 24 1/2% FOR PETE BUTTIGIEG. THE THING THAT YOU ARE GOING TO
SEE ON THAT MAP IS THAT WE HAVE JUST TWO COLORS. WE HAVE THAT
BERNIE SANDERS, HE HAS COVERED AN AWFUL LOT OF COUNTIES. HE HAS
DONE REALLY WELL TONIGHT IN SPREADING OUT HIS SUPPORT, AND
WE HAVE PETE BUTTIGIEG WHO HAS WON THREE COUNTIES TONIGHT AND
DOES A REALLY GOOD JOB IN A FEW PLACES WE DID NOT
NECESSARILY EXPECT HIM TO DO WELL. I WANT TO POINT OUT A
COUPLE OF THINGS THAT ARE LOOKING INTERESTING ABOUT THE
RACE TONIGHT. THIS IS DOWNTOWN HILLSBORO, THIS IS WHERE WE SEE
THE TOWN OF MANCHESTER. IT IS AN URBAN AREA THAT HAS A LOT OF
VOTERS. BERNIE SANDERS WAS DOING VERY WELL HERE, UPWARDS OF 29%
OF THE VOTE. NOW HE HAS FALLEN BACK TO JUST 26%. P BUTTIGIEG AT 24 1/2%. THAT
MIRRORS WHAT THEY WERE LIKE IN THE STATE AS A WHOLE AND THAT IS
NOT SURPRISING CONSIDERING HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN THIS AREA
OVERALL. IT IS GOING TO MAKE IT SO THAT EVERYBODY LOOKS ROUGHLY
THE SAME. ANOTHER AREA I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT IS ROCKINGHAM
COUNTY WHERE BUTTIGIEG HAS DONE WELL ALL NIGHT HE HAS EXTENDED
THAT LEAD OVER BERNIE SANDERS BY ABOUT 3 1/2%. THIS IS A
RELATIVELY LARGE AREA OF STRENGTH FOR PETE BUTTIGIEG. AMY
KLOBUCHAR IS IN THIRD PLACE . SHE WON SEVERAL TOWNSHIPS,
ESPECIALLY NEAR URBAN AREAS. THIS IS A RELATIVELY IMPORTANT AREA. WE HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF
BREAKING NEWS, THIS IS VERY INTERESTING. WE ARE ABLE TO CALL
THIS RACE FOR BERNIE SANDERS, HE HAS 26% OF THE VOTE, AND THAT IS
AN INTERESTING THING. WE HAD TOLD YOU EARLIER IN THE NIGHT
THAT WE FELT VERY CONFIDENT THAT BERNIE SANDERS WAS GOING TO DO
WELL. HE HELD ONTO THAT LEAD OVER PETE BUTTIGIEG AND HE DID
IT BY WINNING ALL ACROSS THE STATE. FOR A LITTLE BIT MORE
INSIGHT ON HOW THAT WORKS, I WOULD LIKE TO TALK TO DAVID WHO
IS AN OPINION COLUMNIST AND A REALLY FASCINATING HUMAN
BEING. LET’S TALK TO YOU ABOUT THIS. WHAT IS IT THAT YOU SEE
GOING FORWARD NOW? PETE BUTTIGIEG IN SECOND PLACE, AMY
KLOBUCHAR IN THIRD, AND WE HAVE PEOPLE — WE HAVE BERNIE SANDERS
IN FIRST. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN GOING FORWARD?
>>IT MEANS A FEW THINGS. IT MEANS AMY KLOBUCHAR HAS A NEW
LEASE ON LIFE. IT IS UNCLEAR HOW SHE IS GOING
TO KEEP GOING ON AFTER HER LOWER FINISH IN IOWA, BUT HE OR SHE
MADE A SHOCKING RESURGENCE, SHE IS GOING TO BE ABLE TO GET MONEY
AND VOTES IN A WAY SHE HAS NOT BEFORE. PETE BUTTIGIEG, YOU COULD SAY A
SIMILAR THING. HE HELD UP IN IOWA AND AVOIDED A MARCO RUBIO
SURGE AND FALL IN BETWEEN IOWA AND NEW HAMPSHIRE. BERNIE
SANDERS IS REALLY THE BIG QUESTION MARK, IN NATIONAL
POLLS, HE HAS BEEN SEEN MODEST GAINS, BUT HE MAY NOT GET THE
PRESS HE WANTS OUT OF THIS BECAUSE A LOT OF PEOPLE WERE
EXPECTING SANDERS TO WIN, AND IT IS AN ODD THING TO THINK ABOUT
MEDIA NARRATIVES IN THIS RACE, BUT IT IS THE REALITY OF WHAT WE
SEE IN THE EMPIRICAL DATA, THAT IS SOMEWHAT EXCEEDS
EXPECTATIONS, THEY OFTEN GET A DOWNSTREAM BUMP. SPEECH WE HAVE
THAT RACE CALL, WE ARE WAITING FOR A COUPLE OF VOTES TO COME
IN, BUT IT SHOULD NOT CHANGE THE OUTCOME. WE WILL TOSS IT BACK TO
NEW HAMPSHIRE. >>LET’S GET OUR REACTION IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE. BERNIE SANDERS THE PROJECTED WINNER IN THIS STATE
BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN, JAMES QUESTION MARK
>>IT MEANS HE GOT THE FIRST THE MOST VOTES IN THE FIRST TWO
CONTESTS. USUALLY THAT MEANS A PERSON WILL
GET THE NOMINATION. IT DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THAT. IS GOING
TO BE FORMIDABLE AND HE WILL BE IN THIS CONTEST THROUGH JUNE. THERE ARE ALSO WARNING
FLAGS. WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBER OF VOTES THAT HAVE BEEN
CAST AND COUNTED, IT IS ABOUT ON PAR WITH 2016. SO MUCH FOR ALL
OF THE DEMOCRATIC ENERGY WE HAVE HEARD SO MUCH ABOUT. SIMILARLY
IN IOWA LAST WEEK THE ACTIVITY WAS CLOSER TO 2016, FAR BELOW
2008. A WIN IS A WIN, AND HE DESERVES CREDIT FOR WINNING NEW
HAMPSHIRE AND GETTING THE MOST VOTES IN IOWA. THERE ARE NOT
SIGNS THAT HE WAS ABLE TO ACTIVATE HIS OWN — AND THOSE I THINK ARE WARNING
SIGNS IF MODERATES CAN GET THEIR ACT TOGETHER AND COALESCE BEHIND
STOP SANDERS CANDIDATES. >>DID SANDERS LOSE SUPPORT FROM
2016? SOMEONE SAID TO ME HE DOES NOT LIKE SANDERS IN THE
DEMOCRATIC PARTY, HE HAS BEEN CAMPAIGNING BASICALLY FOR FIVE YEARS, HOW
CAN HE WIN MOMENTUM WISE IF HE LOSES SUPPORT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
AND I THINK WE ARE GOING TO HAVE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT THE MODERATE
DEMOCRATIC LANE, BEFORE KLOBUCHAR HAD SURGED, SOMEONE IN DC SAID
THAT SHE AND OTHERS SHOULD DO THE RIGHT THING AND DROP OUT SO
THAT THERE CAN BE MORE OF A DECISION ABOUT HOW THE
ESTABLISHMENT WING OF THE PARTY ATTACKS BERNIE SANDERS. WARREN AND BIDEN ARE SUCH
MASSIVE FIGURES IN THE PARTY RIGHT NOW I DO NOT THINK ANYONE
IS PUSHING HIM OUT, BUT I THINK IT IS IMPORTANT FOR DEMOCRATS TO
THINK ABOUT THAT. >>IF WARREN AND BIDEN SAY THEY
ARE GOING TO FIGHT THROUGH SOUTH CAROLINA, WHAT THAT MEANS IS
THERE IS STILL GOING TO BE A MODEL.
>>SO CLOSE BEFORE SUPER TUESDAY.
>>IF YOU HAVE A SCENARIO WHERE THE VOTE IS FRAGMENTED THE WAY IT IS IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE, IT WILL BE FRAGMENTED ON SUPER TUESDAY WITH MORE THAN
A THIRD OF THE DELEGATES BEING AWARDED. THAT COULD POTENTIALLY
MEAN THAT BERNIE SANDERS WILL HAVE THE MOST DELEGATES. IT IS EASY TO START SPECULATING
ABOUT WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN IN JULY IN MILWAUKEE AND WE WILL BE
THERE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY, BUT IT IS NOT UNIMAGINABLE THAT YOU
COULD VERY QUICKLY GET INTO A SCENARIO WHERE BUTTIGIEG AND
KLOBUCHAR AND — YOU COULD HAVE A CONTESTED CONVENTION THAT IS
NOT DECIDED IN MILWAUKEE. IT COULD BE THE FIRST CONTESTED NATIONAL CONVENTION
SINCE 1968. >>WE HAD A SIMILAR DISCUSSION
ABOUT REPUBLICANS FOUR YEARS AGO. WE WILL GO TO THE SANDERS
CAMPAIGN. I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT YOUR REFLECTIONS ARE
TONIGHT. >>HE CAME OUT TO A BOISTEROUS
CROWD, GIVING A VERY VICTORIOUS SPEECH TO THIS CROWD, THAT WAS JUST
CHEERING FOR HIM AND CLAPPING FOR SEVERAL MINUTES BEFORE HE
WAS ABLE TO EVEN BEGIN HIS SPEECH. THAT IS SORT OF A
PARALLEL TO THE REACTION WE SEE AT HIS CAMPAIGN EVENTS ON A
SMALLER SCALE. THERE WERE TONS OF PEOPLE IN THIS ROOM,
INCLUDING — THANK YOU FOR JOINING US. WHAT
DOES THAT FEEL LIKE TO BE IN THIS ROOM BEING A SUPPORTER OF
BERNIE SANDERS AS HE IS WINNING THE FIRST PRIMARY IN THE
COUNTRY? >>IT IS STUNNING. IT IS
INVIGORATING AND ENCOURAGING. IT IS EVERYTHING I HOPED FOR AND MORE.
>>YOU ARE FROM MASSACHUSETTS, AND YOU VOLUNTEERED YOUR TIME
CAUCUSING FOR HIM. WHAT HAVE YOU SEEN FROM TALKING TO PEOPLE IN THIS AREA ABOUT SEEING
SUPPORT FOR HIM OR DISCUSSING VARIOUS ISSUES FOR HIM, HAVE YOU
SEEN THIS GROUNDSWELL OF SUPPORT?
>>I THINK THAT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE IT IS A VERY MIXED COMMUNITY BUT
THE PEOPLE WHO ARE BEHIND BERNIE ARE INCREDIBLY PASSIONATE, THE
GRASSROOTS MOVEMENT THAT HAS INCREASED IN 2016 IS PHENOMENAL, AND HE HAS MORE
INDIVIDUAL DONORS THAN ANY OTHER CANDIDATE, SO IT IS REALLY
HEARTWARMING AND INVIGORATING. >>WHAT WILL YOU DO NOW THAT HE
HAS ONE NEW HAMPSHIRE, WILL YOU CONTINUE TO VOLUNTEER?
>>I WILL CONTINUE TO VOLUNTEER IN MASSACHUSETTS. I WILL
POSSIBLY VOLUNTEER TO MONITOR THE VOTING BEHAVIOR. I WAS
TALKING TO SOMEBODY HERE ABOUT THAT TONIGHT, SO I AM POSSIBLY
GOING TO GET INVOLVED WITH THAT, I AM GOING TO CONTINUE TO DONATE
MONEY AND WORK FOR BERNIE. >>–>>I THINK IT IS A HUGE WIN
BECAUSE THE CANDIDATE FIELD IS SO LARGE, AND WHEN YOU REALLY
ADD TOGETHER THE PROGRESSIVES, THEY COME UP WITH A SIZABLE
PERCENTAGE, AND I CONSIDER THAT TO BE ANDREW YANG AND ELIZABETH
WARREN AND TOM STIER, WHEN YOU ADD UP THOSE PERCENTAGES, IT IS
PRETTY SIZABLE.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR
CHATTING WITH US. IT HAS BEEN A LONG NIGHT, I KNOW YOU ARE
EXHAUSTED. >>IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE
MEETING YOU AND HANGING OUT WITH YOU.
>>IT HAS BEEN A LONG NIGHT BUT IT IS A GOOD NIGHT FOR BERNIE
SANDERS AND HIS SUPPORTERS. >>I HAVE A QUICK QUESTION FOR
YOU, I SAW YOU PUTTING OUT ON SOCIAL MEDIA THAT WHEN PETE
BUTTIGIEG CAME OUT ON THE TV MONITORS SOME OF THE SANDERS
SUPPORTERS STARTED BOOING HIM, WE ARE HEARING CALLS FOR UNITY,
BUT WHAT IS THE MOOD IN THE ROOM THERE?
>>THE BIG SCREEN THAT IS BEHIND ME WAS PLAYING PETE BUTTIGIEG’S
VICTORY SPEECH WHEN HE CAME OUT AND STARTED SPEAKING TO
HIS CROWD BUT OBVIOUSLY THEY WERE SEEING THE FEED OF THAT
SPEECH HAPPENING HERE SO WHEN HE CAME OUT WE HEARD AN
OVERWHELMING BOO FROM THE CROWD AND A COUPLE MINUTES AFTER HIS
SPEECH WE STARTED HEARING THE CHANT, WALL STREET PETE. THOSE ARE TWO INSTANCES WHERE WE
HEARD THE CROWD AT THE BERNIE SANDERS EVENT VOCALIZING THEIR
DISTASTE FOR BUTTIGIEG, BUT AS YOU HEARD
IN SANDERS’S SPEECH TONIGHT, NO MATTER WHO WINS IN NOVEMBER,
THAT WE WILL UNITE, THAT IS WHAT HE SAID, NO MATTER WHO THAT
CANDIDATE IS.>>THANK YOU SO MUCH. APPRECIATE
THAT REPORTING. LET’S CHECK BACK IN NOW WITH JORGE WHO IS LIVE
WITH THE PETE BUTTIGIEG CAMPAIGN.>>YOU CAN SEE BEHIND ME NOW
EVERYONE IS CLEARING OUT AND PACKING UP, BUT JUST A LITTLE
WHILE AGO, BUTTIGIEG CAME UP AND SPOKE TO THE CROWD. ONE OF THE
MOST INTERESTING THINGS HE SAID AT THE BEGINNING IS HE THANKED
BERNIE SANDERS AND AMY KLOBUCHAR FOR SUCH A STRONG SHOWING, WHICH
IS AN INTERESTING PHRASING, BECAUSE WE KNEW AT THE TIME
BERNIE SANDERS WAS LEADING . AND THEN HE TALKED ABOUT HIS
ELECTABILITY, HE TALKED ABOUT BEATING DONALD TRUMP. A LOT OF
IT WAS STUFFY TALKED ABOUT IN HIS RALLIES BUT IT SOUNDED VERY
MUCH LIKE A VICTORY SPEECH. HE REALLY MADE A HARD POINT ON HIS
ELECTABILITY WHICH IS SOMETHING WE HEARD FROM HIS SUPPORTERS AT
ALL THE EVENTS WE WENT TO. THEY REALLY LIKE THE WAY HE TALKED,
THEY REALLY THINK HE WILL BE THE PERSON TO BEAT TRUMP IN
NOVEMBER. HE MENTIONED GOING ONTO NOVEMBER AND — NEVADA AND
SOUTH CAROLINA. THOSE WILL BE STATES THAT PROVIDE CHALLENGES FOR HIM. HE
HAS TO WIN THE LATINO VOTE IN NEVADA AND THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN
VOTE IN SOUTH CAROLINA. HE HAS TO LOOK AT HOW TO EXPAND HIS
MOTOR BASE AND HE HAS TO LOOK AT OTHER CANDIDATES WHO ARE
SURGING. EVERYONE HERE WAS VERY EXCITED AND REALLY HAPPY BUT
GOING FORWARD IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW HIS
CAMPAIGN DOES THAT. THAT IS IT FOR ME TONIGHT HERE, — JEREMY,
BACK TO YOU IN DC.
>>THANKS FOR THAT. WE ARE PRETTY EXCITED, WE HAVE A RAP
HERE ON THINGS TONIGHT. WE HAVE BERNIE SANDERS CALLED AS THE
WINNER IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. BUT THE NEXT STEP FOR US TO FIGURE OUT
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER NEW HAMPSHIRE, AND FOR
THAT WE ARE GOING TO TAKE A LITTLE LOOK AT THE ROAD AHEAD.
WE HAVE ALREADY GOT IN OUR REARVIEW IOWA WITH ITS 41
DELEGATES, AND TONIGHT WE HAVE FINISHED OFF NEW HAMPSHIRE WITH
ITS 24. THAT IS PRETTY GOOD BUT IT IS REALLY NOT MEANINGFUL TOTALS FOR THE
CANDIDATES WHO HAVE ONE ANY OF THESE RACES. IT IS NOT GOING TO
MAKE A DENT IN THE 1900 YOU WIN NEED TO WIN THE CONVENTION. WE
HAVE SOME INTERESTING STATES THAT ARE GOING TO HAVE IMPACT ON
HOW THE CANDIDATE’S CAMPAIGN. NEXT WE ARE GOING TO HAVE
NEVADA, TWO WEEKS FROM NOW. WE HAVE THE NEVADA CAUCUSES ON A
SATURDAY NIGHT AND THEN WE HAD THE SOUTH CAROLINA PRIMARIES
WHERE THERE ARE 54 DELEGATES AT STAKE. THE INTERESTING THING
ABOUT NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA IS THAT THESE ARE TWO PLACES
WHERE THERE ARE A LOT OF NONWHITE VOTERS COMPARED TO
PLACES LIKE IOWA AND NEW HAMPSHIRE. THERE WILL BE
DIFFERENT CANDIDATES WHO DO WELL AND DO POORLY HERE. AFTER CAL
AFTER SOUTH CAROLINA, WE HAVE THE BIG MOJO, SUPER TUESDAY. THE
DEAL WAS SUPER TUESDAY IS THIS. EACH ONE OF THESE FOUR STATES IS
WORTH A LITTLE DELEGATE HAUL FOR EACH CANDIDATES, BUT NOTHING
THAT MAKES A MATHEMATICAL DIFFERENCE FOR WHAT YOU NEED TO
WIN THE NOMINATION. THERE WILL BE INTERESTING THINGS THAT WILL
COME UP FOR THE WINNERS, THEY WILL CAMPAIGN MORE EFFECTIVELY AND
RAISE MONEY AND THERE WILL BE PEOPLE WHO DROP OUT AND THERE
WILL BE MORE VOTES TO BE GATHERED, BUT SUPER TUESDAY IS
THE FIRST TIME THAT THAT DELEGATE HAUL STARTS TO MAKE AN
ACTUAL DENT IN THE NUMBER OF DELEGATES NECESSARY IN ORDER TO
WIN. THAT IS THE ROAD AHEAD WE HAVE GOT. I WILL HAVE TO KICK IT
BACK TO YOU IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, LIBBY.
>>THANK YOU SO MUCH, THOSE DELEGATE COUNTS ARE SO HELPFUL
TO PUT THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE. NEW HAMPSHIRE, A SMALL NUMBER OF
DELEGATES, BUT SIGNIFICANT IN THE NATIONAL CONVERSATION.
>>HUGELY IMPORTANT. THIS IS GOING TO HAVE CONSEQUENCES IN
NEVADA AND SOUTH CAROLINA, IT CAN HAVE HUGE CONSEQUENCES ON
FUNDRAISING, AND I THINK AMBER IS RIGHT, THERE WILL BE A LOT OF
CONVERSATION AT THE ELITE LEVEL, WHEN THE SPEECHES STARTED, WE
WERE WONDERING WHO IS THE STOP SANDERS MOVEMENT , AND IT IS INTERESTING BECAUSE
HE IS VIEWED MORE POSITIVELY THAN DONALD TRUMP WAS DURING THE
2016 CAMPAIGN. THE MODERATOR READ THE QUESTION, THE COMMENT
THAT HILLARY CLINTON HAD RECENTLY MADE, AND SHE SAYS NO
ONE HAS LIKES YOU OR HAD — >>AND KLOBUCHAR SAID BERNIE AND
I HAVE WORKED ON A BILL FOR PRESCRIPTION DRUGS TOGETHER AND
I THINK ONE OF THE COMPLICATED THINGS ABOUT GETTING A STOP
SANDERS MOVEMENT TOGETHER IS HE IS NOT A DIFF TESTED FIGURE THE
WAY TRUMP WAS FOUR YEARS AGO. I THINK YOU COULD SEE A SCENARIO
WHERE SANDERS IS STILL CHUGGING ALONG AT 25 TO 30%.
>>THERE IS THIS ISSUE OF THE CANDIDATES WHO KEEP SAYING AND
KEEP EMPHASIZING PARTY UNITY, TALKING ABOUT EACH OTHER IN
COMPLEMENTARY TERMS, THEY WERE ABLE TO PIVOT AND ATTACK TRUMP
ESPECIALLY SINCE HE WAS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, BUT THEN I THINK IT
IS NOT INSIGNIFICANT THAT YOU HEAR FROM JOYCE REPORTING AT THE
SANDERS EVENT THAT THEY WERE BOOING WHEN BUTTIGIEG COMES ON THE MONITOR. THE
QUESTION IS ABOUT WHO WAGS THE DOG THERE AND WILL THEY TAKE THE QUEUE WHEN
THEY NEED TO PIVOT THEIR SUPPORT SOMEWHERE ELSE QUESTION MARK
>>I THINK THE QUESTION IS WHETHER MODERATE DEMOCRATIC
LEADERS SUPPORT HIM. JOE MANSION SAID HE IS NOT SURE
HE WOULD VOTE FOR BERNIE SANDERS BECAUSE — IF HE IS THE NOMINEE.
>>ONE QUESTION ABOUT BERNIE SANDERS BECOMING THE NOMINEE IS
WHAT HE BRING OUT THE VOTE BUT THERE IS A GROWING CONCERN ABOUT
AMONG THESE MODERATE DEMOCRATS WHO ARE DOWN THE BALLOT
ESPECIALLY — WITH WHOEVER IS THE DEMOCRATIC
NOMINEE, CAN A VOTER WHO IS — THAT IS PART OF THE ANXIETY AND
CONCERN AMONG THE MODERATES. >>THEY ARE PROBABLY GOING TO BE
THE ONES TO EAT THAT CAKE. HE SAID PEOPLE IN MY DISTRICT DO NOT WANT BERNIE
SANDERS OR ELIZABETH WARREN TO BE THE NOMINEE. IT WILL BE
PEOPLE LIKE — WHO ARE SAYING THAT BECAUSE I THINK THE DYNAMIC
WE WILL HAVE IN THE COMING 10 DAYS IS THAT BUTTIGIEG AND
SANDERS HAVE GONE AFTER EACH OTHER AS USEFUL FOILS, THEY ARE
APPEALING TO DIFFERENT VOTERS, AND THE CONTEST IS GOING TO BE
KLOBUCHAR AND BUTTIGIEG GOING BACK AND FORTH, AND IT IS NOT
CLEAR WHO OTHER THAN ELIZABETH WARREN HAS AN INCENTIVE TO GO
AFTER SANDERS. THAT IS WHAT HAPPENED WITH TRUMP WHO, RUBIO,
THEY WERE ALL KIND OF A COLLECTIVE ACTION AND I THINK
THAT IN THE SHORT TERM IS PROBABLY GOING TO WORK TO
SANDERS’S ADVANTAGE. >>SOCIALISTS POLE ABOUT AS WELL
AS ATHEISTS TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES. AND SANDERS HAS BEEN UNRELENTING IN DESCRIBING
HIMSELF AS A DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST. IT FITS IN WITH HIS NARRATIVE OF
REVOLUTION, LET’S DO SOMETHING REALLY BIG TO UNSEAT TRUMP AND
MAKE THE COUNTRY BETTER. I DO NOT KNOW HOW DEMOCRATS AND THE ESTABLISHMENT
DEAL WITH THAT. >>ONE OF THE THINGS THAT IS
GOING TO BE FASCINATING, AMBER IS ABSOLUTELY CORRECT, IS
SANDERS IS SORT OF LIKE YOU CAN SEE IT ON HIS AND HIS WIFE’S
FACE AND THEIR FAMILY, THEY CAN BE THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE FOR
PRESIDENT AND — AND IT WILL BE FASCINATING NOW THAT WE HAVE
FINISHED THESE FIRST TWO STATES TO SEE IF HE
WALKS SOME OF THAT STUFF BACK HE HAS BEEN SO CONSISTENT ON SO
MANY ISSUES FOR SO LONG THAT IF HE SAYS NOW — THAT BILLED HIS
COALITION THAT WILL BE A HUGE — BECAUSE PART OF THE APPEAL TO
VOTERS IS THAT HE IS NOT LIKE A TRADITIONAL POLITICIAN ON THE
OTHER HAND HE IS RUNNING AROUND CALLING HIMSELF A DEMOCRATIC
SOCIALIST IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO IMAGINE HIM CARRYING A STATE
LIKE FLORIDA WHERE THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE WHO EXPERIENCE A
DIFFERENT KIND OF SOCIALISM BUT SOCIALISM ALL THE SAME.
>>WE TALKED ABOUT ELECTABILITY WE TALKED ABOUT THE CHARACTER,
WE TALKED ABOUT THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM AND WE HAVE NOT TALKED
ABOUT THE ISSUES SOME OF THEM HAVE BEEN — AND WHERE THAT HAS LEFT BERNIE
SANDERS OR PETE BUTTIGIEG OR AMY KLOBUCHAR
IN TERMS OF THE ELECTION. >>OUR EXIT POLL SHOWS HEALTHCARE BY
FAR THE TOP CONCERN FOR DEMOCRATIC VOTERS AND AMAZINGLY
THE MAJORITY OF PEOPLE SUPPORT MEDICARE FOR ALL. EVEN THOUGH
SANDERS WON WITH LESS THAN 30% OF THE VOTE, THERE IS ACTUALLY A DESIRE, THERE IS A
FEELING THAT THE HEALTHCARE SYSTEM IS BROKEN. THIS IS ONE OF
THE OLDEST STATES IN THE COUNTRY PEOPLE HAVE SEEN FIRSTHAND A LOT
OF THESE CHALLENGES IT HAS COME OF IT CAME UP A LOT IN IOWA BUT
I AM HERE NOW THIS IS MY SEVENTH DAY HERE EVERY EVENT I HAVE GONE
TO VOTERS ASKED ABOUT IT SOME PEOPLE HAVE GONE UP TO
CANDIDATES ON THE ROAD AND TALKED ABOUT IT AND SANDERS IS
SPEAKING UNAPOLOGETICALLY ABOUT IT AND MAYBE THEY DO NOT AGREE
WITH EVERYTHING HE IS SAYING THE FACT THAT SANDERS IS SO
OUTSPOKEN ON HEALTHCARE I THINK HELPS HIM
BECAUSE THAT IS ANOTHER POLL THAT CAME OUT THIS WEEK THAT
SAID MORE THAN 50% OF DEMOCRATIC RANK-AND-FILE PEOPLE THAT THEY
WANT THE CANDIDATES TALKING MORE ABOUT HEALTHCARE. I THINK THAT
IS GOING TO BE ONE OF THE — THAT IS PART OF THE
EXPLANATION FOR WHY WARREN FADED. IT TOOK HER A COUPLE OF
MONTHS TO EXPLAIN THE MIDDLE GROUND BETWEEN MEDICARE FOR ALL
AND WHAT SHE CAME UP WITH AND BUTTIGIEG HAS STUCK TO THE
SLOGAN OF MEDICARE FOR ALL WHO WANT IT.>>IT IS THE SAME, SIMILAR
SITUATION WHERE THERE ARE A LOT OF OLD PEOPLE, AND SANDERS DOES
NOT DO AS WELL WITH OLD PEOPLE, AND BUTTIGIEG DOES, A LOT OF OLDER VOTERS, PEOPLE OVER 55,
ARE CONCERNED ABOUT MEDICARE FOR ALL, IT TENDS TO BE LESS POPULAR
WITH OLDER VOTERS WHO TEND TO BE MORE CONSERVATIVE BUT THEY ARE
ALSO CONCERNED ABOUT LOSING WHAT THEY HAVE. YOUNG PEOPLE I THINK
ARE LESS ANXIOUS ABOUT AND WE SAW THAT WITH BUTTIGIEG’S SPEECH WHERE HE SAID
IT IS A FALSE CHOICE TO SAY REVOLUTION OR STATUS QUO THOSE
OF US ARE THINKING IN THE MIDDLE AND SANDERS IS SAYING LET’S
COMPLETE THE REVOLUTION AND BIDEN IS SAYING LET’S RETURN TO
THE OBAMA STATUS QUO. >>AND YOU HAVE AMY KLOBUCHAR
AND SHE IS SORT OF DOING THAT THIS IS NOT REALISTIC LET’S HAVE
SOME CHOICE HERE. TIED TO THE QUESTION OF HEALTHCARE IS
PRESCRIPTION DRUGS ISN’T ALSO OPIOID ISSUES A LOT OF ATTENTION BROUGHT TO
THAT FOUR YEARS AGO STILL PART OF THE CONVERSATION IN NEW
HAMPSHIRE BUT AS WE GO ON TO NEVADA PRESCRIPTION DRUGS IN
HEALTHCARE SOMETHING ON VOTERS MINDS IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO
SEE WHICH METHODS RESONATE. >>ABSOLUTELY HEALTHCARE AND ALL
OF THE SPLINTERED OFF ISSUES ARE BIG FOR NEVADA’S STANDPOINT A
STATE WITH A LOT OF RETIREES. NEVADA ALSO HAS A LOT OF
POLITICAL ACTIVISTS ON THE YOUNGER SIDE AND EVERY TIME I GO
TO CAMPAIGN EVENTS THEY ARE NODDING THEIR HEADS WHEN YOU
TALK ABOUT GUN CONTROL, IMMIGRATION, THERE IS A LITTLE
BIT LESS DIVISIVENESS OR DISAGREEMENT IN THE DEMOCRATIC
PARTY ON IMMIGRATION BUT THAT IS STILL A
MASSIVE ISSUE BECAUSE IT WAS THE DEFINING ISSUE FOR PRESIDENT
TRUMP SO I THINK A CANDIDATE WHO CAN SEIZE THE LANE ON
IMMIGRATION CAN GIVE A PREVIEW ABOUT HOW
THEY MIGHT GO AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP IN THE GENERAL ELECTION.
>>– WE WILL BE WATCHING TO SEE HOW YOU COVER THE LEAD UP TO
NEVADA AS WELL AS SOUTH CAROLINA. YOU BOTH HAVE

Comments
  1. The contempt these reporters feel towards Sanders is palpable. That chick on the left is literally gritting her teeth as she is speaking. She just spitting rather than talking.

  2. I smell cheating but I'm a conspiracy theorist and Jeffery Epstein killed himself right?
    Buttiplug sucks😃😍💞💖😪😜😲😮😃😀😄😝

  3. they are engaged in a death by 1 000 thefts approach diminishing Sanders each primary/caucus so that the nomination goes to the 2nd ballot & then the Super Delegates decide… and screw Sanders again, that means the Giant Orange Clown gets 4 more wars… Sanders keeps having overwhelming victories that they dilute into ties… for every word Sanders speaks the oligarchs buy another voter & steal another of Sanders votes & give it to the f* g mayor ratface thief

  4. I absolutely hate how much bias these reporters still are against Bernie. They are still playing skeptical and refusing to admit that Bernie has a true momentum, they are always just downplaying, sidestepping, making arguments, and being so critical about his potential for the nomination. It's so simple, if Bernie loses, Trump wins. Guaranteed. You will not have the passionate Bernie supporters show up to vote. Simple. It's like the media wants Trump to have another term rather than have Bernie as president.

  5. Who the hell thinks that a very young, highly inexperienced mayor of a somewhat small city (only over 100,000) is gonna be more capable than Bernie and also stand up to Trump????

  6. Interestingly enough, it's easier to pronounce Klobuchar than Buttigieg. And her legislative records are good. I'd put money on her than him.

  7. Bernie doesn't need the media or money from the 1% or large corporations. He's still winning without any of that. It's so refreshing to see. Bernie2020

  8. it's pretty stupid for those that vote for dems just to get
    trump out of office cause they don't like him that's REALLY sad.

  9. Watching your coverage one would think that Pete won.
    If the main stream media wants us to take them seriously they better start acting fair to all candidates regardless of your interior motives

  10. People in Florida didn't experience socialism, I get that it's a reference to the cold war or in the case of Cubans again actual communism maybe, but it's not even slightly accurate to what Bernie is proposing. Also it's more likely Pete suddenly pretends to be progressive than Sanders abandoning his main policy proposals to win over moderates who thanks to this type of media coverage still 40 years on don't know the difference between Democratic Socialism and Totalitarian Communism.

  11. "Sanders doesn't like people" wtf is that why he fights for us!! I think you meant he doesn't pander and isn't full of bull

  12. I don’t need anyone I’m looking at to tell me what Bernie winning “really means.” All it REALLY means is that Bernie won. Period.

  13. BUTTIGIEG won more delegates in New Hampshire than Bernie. BUTTIGIEG is the candidate that will win this election. Mark my words.

  14. He’s not walking anything back because one, he has balls, and two, he’s going to trust the electorate’s intelligence and that it will come to the revelation that he’s speaking the truth. I am 66, “Medicare for all!”

  15. Trump is making America strong not a weak abused liberal who thinks giving… they'll change policy if you show love and compassion. This is a crazy view.

  16. Bernie the Russian. Imagine the mayor visiting middle east with his boyfriend husband. I think the interview he had with cuomo on CNN was funny…he was flirting with him Lol…

  17. Sanders supporters booing Buttigieg's face shown on screen is just not cool, while Pete's supporter saying good things about Bernie, they show no class when supporting their favourite.

  18. Senator Sanders' supporters really need to stop attacking other candidates' voters.
    You can only win the General election by reaching out to them not insulting them.

  19. Can someone direct me the facts of total voters collective of the dems versus the Boss? I would very much like to see that in Iowa but for some reason that direct information as a citizen I cannot find . After all proof in the pudding. Thanks

  20. Bill Gates, Bill Gates Sr, Waren Buffet on the board of directors of bill and melinda foundation . Bill gates Sr was the head of eugenics for planned parenthood . Hello?

  21. This low morality that is permiating American politics will be the destruction of it's people. Thank god Trump will prevail.

  22. Sono un italiano e faccio il tifo per Biden. Mi pare però un errore: 1) non ringraziare gli elettori che hanno votato per lui in Iowa e in New Hampshire 2) rimandare la vittoria alle prossime primarie, contando sui voti della classe operaia e delle minoranze etniche: ma non è questo l'elettorato di Sanders?

  23. Regarding the pundits "concern" for the Sanders' similar base voters as in 2016 if it isn't apparent that he would've beat Trump in 2016 ( if the DNC doesn't shyster him again) it will be proven in November

  24. I'm sorry to tell you guys but Bernie Sanders is a communist. Socialist he will never win the White House. He'll never get the nomination.

  25. Go tell your sister, mothers, brothers friends uncles and anyone else who's not sure vote Bernie Bernie Bernie Bernie all the way Bernie for presedent. Yang for vice president.

  26. Bernie can win it all and beat Trump if the so-called non-voters get registered and VOTE FOR BERNIE in November. Tell a friend!

  27. Money doesn't grow on trees. The government doesn't make or earn money. Socialism is funded by Citizens. Poor, surviving, and those well off.

    In Canada, people pay over 50% of their pay for 1-Star medical care. Some areas have few doctors. You may be diagnosed with cancer, but have to wait 2-3 months for an MRI. So, your prognosis is worse, because your chemo or surgery is delayed.

    No one wins with socialism, except the government, as they continue to stuff their pockets with money from lobbyists, and continue to get 6-Star healthcare, because they can afford it. And as they continue to mispend our money, refuse to be accountable, spend $Millions on fraudulent court battles to overturn the will of the people, pervert our children's minds and hearts with R and X rated sex ed, and control every darn thing in our lives.

    Reality is. They think we're too stupid to manage our own lives, money and families.

    Turn off the fake news, and put on a critical mind, seeking truth, rather than something that just convinces you "you're right!" "your team is winning." "everyone else is stupid." We're the frogs in a pot of water getting boiled to death.

  28. I got to thinking. To get free education and taxes will raise to pay for the free education. And the taxes would be for your entire life (so you could pay for others to have free education). Wouldn't it be better to have the tax benefits that we have now and pay for just our own education. I don't want to pay for life and I am paying for 3-4 people when I could just pay for my own.

  29. The Democrats have switched tactics. Now they use political slavery and welfare as their new plantation. Look at how they Socially Lynch people (especially blacks) who advocate for getting people off Government Assistance. They have put in place welfare policies that have dismantled the black family using welfare incentives to remove Black Fathers from the home. It is the most racist group I have ever seen. Democrats and Liberals are still Very Racist, they have just found a new slick way to institute their racism.

  30. The fiscally Irresponsible republican gop are of course Juicing the economy in the leadup to the Election. Big Time!!

  31. I believe it is time for the FBI to investigate the shanigans displayed by the DNC in the Iowa caucus.
    Maybe they need to oversee the entire polling places.
    Losing trust in the DNC to hold a fair vote.
