How will US economic growth impact midterm elections?


CONNECTED. WE KNOW AT LEAST THE FIRST THREE ARE. ELIZABETH: THANK YOU SO MUCH. DISTURBING. LELAND. LELAND: TODAY MARKS PRESIDENT TRUMP 500th DAY IN OFFICE AND HE OFFICE AND HE’S WRITING ON THE HEELS OF A POSITIVE JOBS REPORT AND RECORD LOW UNEMPLOYMENT. ISSUES THAT GENERALLY PUSH VOTERS TO THE POLLS. SPEAKING OF POLLS RIGHT NOW. VOTERS NATIONWIDE WERE INFINITELY MORE TOWARDS DEMOCRATS AND REPUBLICANS THE GENERIC CONGRESSIONAL VOTE. AS YOU CAN SEE, IT HAS TAKEN SIGNIFICANTLY SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR. FIVE STATES HAVE PRIMARIES ON TUESDAY. JOINING US NOW FROM TWO OF THOSE STATES, CALIFORNIA LATER POST IN IOWA RADIO HOST STEVE DAYS. NICE TO SEE BOTH OF YOU. RIGHT NOW YOU’VE GOT THE ECONOMIC ARGUMENT COMING OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE. THE FOREIGN-POLICY ARGUMENT OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE AND THEN THE PRESIDENT ATTORNEYS GOING ON OFFENSE AGAINST THE MOLAR INVESTIGATION. TAKE A LISTEN TO RUDY GIULIANI LATER TODAY — EARLIER TODAY.>>THIS IS THE WHAT THE PRESIDENT TESTIFIED. OUR RECOLLECTION KEEPS CHANGING HER WERE NOT EVEN ASKED THE QUESTION SO NOBODY MAKES AN ASSUMPTION. IN MY CASE I MADE AN ASSUMPTION WE CORRECTED AND GOT IT RIGHT OUT AS SOON AS IT HAPPENED.>>STEVE, WE HAVE SEEN THE WHITE HOUSE AND ITS OUTSIDE COUNSEL REALLY TURN UP THE HEAT ON THE MOLAR INVESTIGATION. IS THAT GALVANIZE REPUBLICANS TO TALK TO OR DOES IT SLIP THEM A LITTLE BIT?>>I THINK RIGHT NOW ALMOST EVERYTHING HAS THE OPTION OF EITHER GALVANIZING YOUR BASE AND/OR GALVANIZING THE OTHER AT THE EXACT SAME TIME. WE HAVE A MOTTO ON MY SHOW, WHOEVER LOSES BECAUSE WE HAVE GOT THIS FASCINATING, THIS CONTRASTS WITH THE TYPICAL ECONOMIC ISSUES THAT DRIVE THE ELECTORATE ARE IN FAVOR OF TRUMP AND THE REPUBLICANS. ON THE OTHER HAND, HIS APPROVAL RATING IS STILL VERY MUCH IN THE DANGER ZONE. THE ENERGY LEVEL AS WE’VE SEEN IN ELECTIONS ACROSS THE COUNTRY IS STILL VERY MUCH IN FAVOR OF DEMOCRATS AND THOSE USUALLY PORTEND THE OUTCOME OF MIDTERM ELECTIONS AS WELL. I DON’T KNOW THAT WE’VE EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS BECAUSE TYPICALLY THE REASON WHY THE OTHER SIDE IS ENERGIZED IS BECAUSE YOUR POLICIES ARE NOT POPULAR. IN THIS CASE, TRUMP’S POLICIES ARE FAR MORE POPULAR THAN HE IS. IT WOULD BE FASCINATING TO SEE THE VOTERS SORT THIS OUT COME NOVEMBER.>>TWITTER WILL SORT OUT WHICH ONE OF THE THREE OF US WAS CLASS. WE WILL TUNE IN FOR THAT. WE WOULD GET YOU TO RESPOND TO STEVE IN THE SENSE THAT DEMOCRATS NOW HAVE TO CHANGE THEIR PLAYBOOK. EVEN DEMOCRATS WHO COME ON THE SHOW AND MUCH MORE ABOUT ATTACKING HIM IN GOING AFTER HIM ON RUSSIA.>>WELL, I’VE ALWAYS SAID THAT’S WHAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE TO DO. THEY HAVE TO DO MORE THAN NOT. THEY CAN JUST BE WE ARE NOT SHOWN, PARTY OF TRUMP ARE DIFFERENT FROM TRUMP BECAUSE WE’VE SEEN IN SOME DISTRICTS IN ELECTIONS WHERE THERE’VE BEEN SUCCESSFUL IN FLIPPING IT WHERE THERE HAS BEEN A MORE MODERATE TONE WITH REGARD TO THE PRESIDENT. IT REALLY DEPENDS ON THE CONSTITUENCY. WE HAD 10 DISTRICTS RIGHT HERE IN THIS STATE IN CALIFORNIA THAT ARE VERY FOOTBALL BOWL TO BLUE FOR BREAD. THE CHANGING DEMOGRAPHIC OF CALIFORNIA SHOWS THAT AND QUITE FRANKLY IF DEMOCRATS OFTEN SOME OF THOSE ISSUES AND THE DEMOGRAPHICS THAT ARE VERY IMPORTANT LIKE IMMIGRATION, WALLS THAT THEY DON’T WANT BUILT IN A LOT OF THESE DISTRICTS AND SEPARATION OF CHILDREN FROM FAMILIES AND THE LACK OF IMMIGRATION POLICY. ALSO THE ISSUE OF GUN CONTROL AND A LACK OF THOSE ISSUES THAT MAY GET DEMOCRATS OUT TO VOTE. AS A DEMOCRAT, WE ARE GREAT AT MARCHING AND WE HAVE ALL THESE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE REGISTERING TO VOTE AND THAT IS AWESOME AND MANY ARE REGISTERING AS DEMOCRATS. OR SO INDEPENDENCE. IF THEY DON’T VOTE, IT DOESN’T HELP ANYBODY FLIPPING A DISTRICT EVEN HERE IN CALIFORNIA.>>I THINK IT WAS ON THE WEST WING DAYSIDE DECIDED BY THOSE WHO SHOW UP. STEVE, TO YOU NOW, THIS IS SOMETHING SPLITTING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY, ESPECIALLY IN IOWA. HE SHOULD PRESIDENT TRUMP STARES. LARRY KUDLOW ON “FOX NEWS SUNDAY” IN THEM WILL GET YOUR REACTION.>>I DON’T DENY THAT. YOU COULD JEOPARDIZE THAT.>>AS POSSIBLE, ABSOLUTELY.>>THE ECONOMY IS ON FIRE. UNEMPLOYMENT THREE-POINT LEAD. DOES THE PRESIDENT HAVE SHOW WE SAY X DOES REPUBLICAN BASE ON TARIFFS?>>I THINK HE DEFINITELY DOES. HE’S GOT AN EXPOSED FLANK WITH EVERYDAY AMERICANS. WHEN YOU GET INTO TARIFFS OVER HERE IN SUBSIDIES OVER THERE, YOU START GROUPS AGAINST ONE ANOTHER AND DEMOCRATS ARE FAR BETTER AT THAT THAN REPUBLICANS ARE. LET ME GIVE YOU AN EXAMPLE. I’M IN A GROCERY STORE HERE RECENTLY GOING THROUGH THE EXPRESS LANE AND THE WOMAN AHEAD TO ME WANTS TO KNOW WHY HER CARTON OF EGGS OR $3 WHEN THEY WERE MUCH CHEAPER A FEW MONTHS AGO. WE KNOW THE ANSWER. IT IS A TRADE WAR, THE THREAT OF TERRORISTS COME AT HENRY. RIGHT NOW WE DON’T HAVE NEARLY THE UNREST IN THE MIDDLE EAST FROM MOVING THE EMBASSY TO JERUSALEM. RELATIVELY SPEAKING WE HAVE AS MUCH CONSISTENT PIECE IN THE MIDDLE EAST AS WE’VE HAD POST-9/11. YET WHEN I WANT TO FILL UP AT COSTCO THE OTHER DAY HERE IN DES MOINES TO COST ME $45 GOOD WIFE PASSED AWAY NOT. WHY ARE THE OF EGGS MORE AT THE STORE. THOSE ARE THE THINGS THEY DON’T GET INTO COMPLEX ECONOMIC AREAS AND BATTLING TALKING POINTS. THEY WANT TO KNOW WHAT’S IN THIS FOR ME. RIGHT NOW A LOT OF GOOD THINGS FOR THE TRUMP ECONOMY FOR THEM. WHEN YOU WERE TO RAZORS THAT OF MARGINS COME YOU DON’T HAVE TO ALIENATE A LOT OF PEOPLE TO CHANGE THE OUTCOME OF THE ELECTORATE COME NOVEMBER. LELAND: I ONLY HAVE 15 SECONDS BUT I WANT TO GET YOU IN. HOW DO DEMOCRATS EXPLOIT THE VIEW WAS JUST TALKING ABOUT?>>I ACTUALLY AGREE WITH STEVE ON THIS ONE BECAUSE IT’S NOT JUST THE ECONOMY. IT’S THE PERCEPTION OF A PERSON ECONOMIC SITUATION THAT IS THE REALITY. THEY ARE GOING TO THE PUMPS AND PRICES ARE HIGHER. THE WAGE GROWTH IS NOT THE, WHICH WE HAVE NOT SEEN. WE SAW DURING THE OBAMA YEARS UNEMPLOYMENT DROPPED OVER AND OVER IN ELECTIONS. SO IT’S REALLY THE FEELING OF PERCEPTION ECONOMICALLY AT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHEN THEY GO TO VOTE.>>PERHAPS AS STEVE POINTS OUT HOW THEY FEEL AT THE PUMP IN THE GROCERY STORE WAY, WAY OUT WAY

  1. We love our president we are Very grateful for what President Trump down so far heโ€™s going to be the greatest president ever he story will tell

  2. THE TRADE WAR JUST OFFICALLY STARTED, BUYING ONLY FOOD STUFF WILL ONLY HURT USA CONSUMERS AS FOOD PRICES WILL SKYROCKET JUST AS BEEF WAS RENDERED UNAFFORDABLE TO MILLIONS OF AMERICANS!!!

  3. He is only doing reciprocal tariffs that means if they charge us we charge them. The reason things are going up is the corperate elites and we understand the game and the consequence if we dont take back our covernment from these socialists. it's the long game we are shooting for. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  4. I'M VOTING REPUBLICAN!!! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  5. i love how blind and stupid trump supporters are, world is laughing form your stupidity ๐Ÿ™‚ keep it up guys ๐Ÿ™‚ lots of love from Europe

  6. More fake polls numbers. Just like they said "Hillary was far ahead of Trump" in 16'. They're Liars !! GOP will keep seats as well as gain.

  7. Hey you guys, check Zerohedge's website article about the jobs and unemployment report by the BLS. It is all a sham.

  8. It's 2018, very few people will even admit to being republican, I see a blue wave of tsunami proportions coming.

  9. Trump supporters don't do polls we wait then go out and vote because we love watching the media lose there shit because they didn't see the landslide going

  10. Hahaha last month I bought a pound of steak for $10 yesterday now I cost me five fifty and I live in California where everything is expensive eggs for $3 more than the world last month gimme a Break

  11. Myself and both of my sons one genX the other a millennial vote republican . Trump country ! We can pay a little more now that everyone is working . So, try again dems. We're laughing all the way to the bank. Lol

  12. On D -Day 1944 it was Canada First onto Juno Beach, side by side with the Americans on Omaha. These neighbors, my neighbors are our friends.

  13. A true born again Christian or moral decent person cannot vote Democrat in any election! The DNC and their agenda is evil, putrid, vile to the Core they hate America!

  14. Mueller is a trump hater! He will do anything he can to remove our president! We need to stop this Witch Hunt now!

  15. We Republicans canโ€™t become complacent and think everything will be ok if we donโ€™t vote! We need to get out and vote!

  16. I hope there isn't a blue wave, so republican will get all the credit for the economic bubble bursting due to Trump trade wars with China, the EU, Canada and Mexico. Not America First. America Alone.

  17. The Dems are going to lose big time in November. Why? Because no one likes a complainer and all the Dems do is complain, complain, complain… They NEVER offer good ideas. All they do is complain. So…. They're toast!!!! Too bad they're not smart enough to understand this but then, if they were, they'd be republicans.

    And what will fix this sorry state of affairs? A constitutional amendment for TERM LIMITS.

  18. Many liberals believed that Obama was saving the country while he brought us to the brink of economic collapse, so a booming economy under Trump will probably not be a factor for how they vote. They just hate whoever the are brainwashed to hate and worship whoever they are brainwashed to worship regardless of how the economy is. Many of them who voted for Obama could not even say what his policies were.

  19. That depends how stupid you think the rest of the world is . Obviously the recent unemployment numbers were manipulated and that looks pretty lame but nobody else cares about what you do . My estimate is that there will be 375000 US steel and Other related jobs lost within 3 months because of brainless policies and that is one industry category only . Itโ€™s all self inflicted as long as you stay away from former Allie but if you keep the crazy behavior up and the ongoing treats that has been on display for around a decade now you could find yourself in a position where you are the moving towards the standards of Venezuela or worse . You have NOTHING the EU needs to import so itโ€™s really an advantage and it simplifies things because you are simply too Phsychotic

  20. It will impact midterms elections by making them even more hilarious.
    Not only the DNC doesn't have any economic platform but they will be forced to avoid the topic entirely. ALL you will hear is "Trump is literally H!tler". More months.

  21. Not too honest. Eggs are going up because large companies are buying all the large producers. Why does he feel the need to lie? The price of chicken has gone down do to so many chickens being breed.

  22. Folks, I will make a very clear point here:
    Trump's tariffs are his specific battle against the TPP. Which he, rightfully, cancelled.
    Now, get this once and for all: FOX NEWS IS OWNED BY PRO TPP CORPORATIONS.
    Precisely zero (thats zero, with a Z) News channel will support Trump's tariffs. ZERO. Not, because the policy is flawed but because these Corporations, Comcast, Disney, etc, THEY ARE PRO TPP, PRO GLOBALISM, 100000% PRO GLOBALISM, CORPORATIONS.
    So you won't hear anybody even merely pronounce the word "TPP" on the MSM.
    Most people, even the informed ones, couldnt even spell the word TPP let along explaining what it is.
    On purpose.
    Even the people watching the news 20 hours a day don't know much about the TPP and yet it was the single biggest issue of the 2016 election. And still is. Because they are still pushing this thing.
    So don't expect anybody in the MSM defending Trump's tariffs. Not even on FOX.
    Trump's biggest supporters, Ingraham, etc, wouldn't touch the topic with a hundred foot pole.

  23. They say one day in politics is a long time.. in this administration it's one hour. Anything can happen anytime with this unpredictable President winging it and Trump's people lining up to give evidence ..against him as they attend court.

  24. If the people have a brain in their head they'll vote for republicans but knowing this country who knows some people can't see the forest for the trees

  25. All I can say is thank you Obama for the economy, this is why you will go down as the greatest president of our country <3

  26. China had a fake egg producer shut down on top of that. read on —-
    U.S. eggs are also in high demand on international markets. Countries such as South Korea, the Philippines, South Africa, and the Netherlands had flocks ravaged by the avian flu this year, and the European market pulled millions of eggs due to suspicions that the chickens were subjected to a banned insecticide, according to the report.

  27. Ummm yeah- economy is going up, unfortunately worker salaries aren't following inflation
    There's a reason why 47% of the country lives in poverty

  28. What could happen is Republicans lie and use the economy that Trump is riding on the back of to say they're doing good, but just like history has repeated 3 fucking times, after a year or 2 we will have an economic crisis because of the Republicans and Trump lifting banking regulations from the new deal that are to prevent a second great depression and their trade war/tax break. You dumb fucks though will still vote republican because you're not that literate enough to understand how an economy works, and how easy it is for someone with no experience in governing, like Trump to utterly break it.

    When you're out of a job and a loaf of bread costs your annual pay, it will be a Democrat that will have to fix the mess, like all the other times you idiots ruined the economy.

  29. People that have half a clue understand that OUR President, Donald J. Trump is hobbled by Democrats and RINOs. Plagued by talking heads and Hollywood sycophants of the left.
    The primaries and mid terms will tell the tale if America wants the POTUS to Make America Great Again. We need a super majority that BACKS his policies. That will get his promises on track and make the next 6 and a half years better for CITIZENS!
    VOTE for TRUMP allied candidates, not useless Democrats and RINOs. MAGA in the midterms and KAG in 2020.
    Don't let tax and spend Democrats hold America back any longer.

  30. If I hear one more Democrat say Obama had low unemployment numbers, I think I might scream. The numbers were manipulated every month, because so many millions ran out of unemployment insurance, and dropped from the statistics. Fact

  31. California democrats are shafting their own people at the pump. The gas here in Oklahoma is about 2.40 a gallon not 4 bucks

  32. Why are your carton of eggs so much? Its called inflation! Purchasing power of dollar has been going down since the 1913 Federal Reserve Act.

  33. I am just so sick and tired of the "how much does bread cost" argument vs. having a better paying job or even a job at all. We are not in the 1920's you f'ing idiot "experts." If someone gets just a $1 raise an hour, that's $2,000 a year and about $1,600 goes in their pocket. That's about $130 more a month of real money in their pocket. So, your argument is that people are too dumb to know that $130 dollars is more than an extra $2 for eggs or an extra $10-20 for gas a month? You're a moron.

  34. SIR President Donald Trump is my GOD, BeCause he is the SMARTEST POLITICIANS ever exist in the UNIVERS …

  35. There's no such thing as a Republican party anymore, it's now the Trump party, led by an idiot, and supported by his brainwashed low-iq followers

    Do you think I'm lying? Ask yourself the highest level of Education you completed…

  36. The midterms still 4 month away there probably be a recession by then due to tariffs imposed by Trump idiocy.

  37. Meanwhile the US has a 17 trillion dollars debt that is mostly owed to China. Itโ€™s like bragging you own a Rolls Royce when you purchased it with a Chinese credit card. LOL

  38. `Yes and everyone knows how well "the polls" worked for the dems in 2016. This is just an attempt to keep republican voters at home.

  39. Trade war might be necessary, and it can't just be an anti-China policy or else China will view it that way. If you had to pick a time to do a trade war, this is the perfect time, while the USA economy is red hot and maybe could even use some cold water on it.

  40. I don't know where she saying people aren't seeing wage growth? Statistics show the opposite. Including the median income raising most $1,000 a year.

  41. Economic growth with, Sears, Kmart, Toys R Us, Babies R Us, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Ann Talyor, Loft, Dress Barn, Starbucks, Matteress Firm, Gap, Banana Republic, Best Buy, The Children's Place, Foot Locker, Abercrombie and Fitch, Michael Kors, The Bon-Ton, J Crew, Macy's, J C Penny, and Claire's, shutting down stores, and Harley Davidson moving to China. Wounder if they figured that in the unemployment numbers.
