Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 1-Bob Davis Podcast 753

Every two years the entire US House of Representatives has to run for election. The predictions of the prognosticators concerning these elections are most noteworthy. The sages say as many as 58 republican seats are in jeopardy. We’ll find out in a series of podcasts that examine each of these house races in detail. Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 1-Bob Davis Podcast 753.

Predictions Are Dangerous

I hate predictions, Moreover I find while the media loves to ‘nationalize’ house and senate elections most of the time they turn on local issues not the national issues. One of the reasons predictions are often be wrong.

Especially relevant, so many of these races are considered toss ups.

Calibrating The Crystal Ball

There’s only way to determine whether men staring into crystal balls can predict the future. You have to examine each district one at a time.

In part one we look at several districts in California, Colorado, and Florida. More are on the way.

Travel Makes Great Political Analysis

I am happy to say I have been to many of these districts in Mobile Podcast Command. ‘Just passing through’ doesn’t give you some gift for the truth but it does help to visualize. Because I travel I have additional knowledge that is invaluable when it comes to understanding what’s going on in some of these elections.

Pivot Counties Are Well…Pivotal

Similarly it helps to have visited to some of the so called ‘Pivot Counties‘ and to have traveled through areas these guys on TV probably have not seen recently, if ever. It all adds up to the realization that all politics really is local.

New Political Environment?

Because I traveled in 2016 I was able to to realize early on something different was brewing. I think we’re still in a new political environment. All the more reason not to avoid the tarot card readers on TV. Listen to Toss Up House Elections 2018-Part 1-Bob Davis Podcast 753 instead.

No Predictions Just Information And a Baseline For You

While I won’t predict anything in 2018 I think it is fair to say we’re in a new environment politically in which almost anything can happen. Moreover whatever is happening may not show up in polls and primary election data.

Isn’t that what makes watching the outcome so much fun?

Podcast 144

The week ahead, live from the deck at the Broadcast Bunker. This is becoming a Sunday night tradition. Having a steak and updating Bob Davis Podcast subscribers on key stories for the coming week. Wrap up for Operation American Spring protest which was held Saturday in Washington DC. Can you force congressmen and senators to resign? Can you impeach legislators? Then what? The VA health care controversy continues to grow. Get used to it, because the VA is what Obama Care will be like for all of us if the law isn’t repealed. Is the First Lady’s concern with the kidnap victims in Nigeria real? What Putin is really after. Fires in San Diego, Tornados in Alabama and a swamp called ‘The District of Columbia’ could flood if all the ice melts in the Antarctic (where it is the end of summer right now).

Podcast 102

I meant to post this Podcast in the early morning hours of 2/21/14, but a snowstorm knocked out the Internet! Back up and running and posting later on this day. In the midst of the storm, the big stories of the week and a look ahead. While Jack Frost ‘eats the profits’ of America’s corporations (nonsense, of course, economic data is still weak and they keep trying to find explanations for it, which get more and more absurd as time goes on), the FCC wants to put ‘researchers’ in newsrooms, there are some bright spots including getting ahead on Fusion Reaction, a ‘conservative’ new mayor in San Diego, California , the UAW loses a big one in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and a few thoughts on my favorite new show; House of Cards.
