2/12/16 Podcast Ryan Burrow

In Podcasts

A pair of topics Friday morning, as Ryan is in Milwaukee where Thursday night Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton debated head to head, with Clinton trying to figure out how to get back some of the young white vote that is overwhelmingly backing Sanders at this point. Ryan then heads to South Carolina, the next GOP battleground, where on Saturday the GOP candidates will be in Greenville debating, with Donald Trump hoping to stave off the challengers once again, despite the more conservative environment and the other candidates charges that there is nothing conservative about him. Rick Klein offers analysis of both races

Fiorina and Christie are out, that’s the headline. However, neither would have even qualified for the next debate, so their departures doesn’t exactly change the landscape all that much, if at all. And if there was one candidate, other than the victor Donald Trump, who got a boost from the results it would have to John Kasich. Aaron has returned from a week in New Hampshire, and details the fallout.

DNI John Clapper put it bluntly, that he expected ISIS to attempt attacks on the U.S. homeland this year. Of particular concern to intelligence officials, is the homegrown threat… U.S. citizens, galvanized by the extremist message, who act on their own in perpetrating a terrorist attack, without attempting any contact with outside terrorist groups, providing the opportunity to be intercepted by surveillance. The San Bernardino attack brought this “out of nowhere” scenario to the fore, and clearly rattled the country. And then you have cyber-terrorism, which while not imminent, many analysts believe will be next domain for a 9/11-scope type terrorist event.

The results of the New Hampshire primary will be in. Will Sanders win resoundingly, as the pollsters expect, and by so much that Clinton decides to shake up her staff? And on the GOP side… well, there are several potential takeaways… but essentially how will the results affect who will remain standing into early March and Super Tuesday?
