Yep well if they're truly be an independent branch of government question. Initiative and proposal partner examiner rack political support for public there it delete should be. Equal partner in government it will be sure we're in both. Notion that aren't there. I wanted talker who briefly and I asked Ron tocchet about this the other day. This Carner shrinks. If it's a race of a non race I guess in in some respect but it it has it does have some downstream implications for folks that feel like. There they've been cheated of a vote. Yeah you know like Syria Iraq. Or rates where you could vote I'm going to be. But close is she gonna get. Candidate in comfort or. Order it. The after all. Week in order actual campaign. Narrative or do you know it was all out. But he and after that there are taking it off the ballot. And as a college or state law that you are right after that well. On the ballot which what happened book for now approach that you actually out. Oh. Well it's true after the his or her name was still on the quote it at that one of our. Ought. Or at least another bout told going to be challenged. It's for our. Shelves. So a lot of that. A lot of the text. A lot of the tax common men are ask and if I want there to be a full slate of candidates. Re qualifying and all of that. How should I vote. Ordered water. Duo nuke well you both around. If you comfortable look like Jana what about some other people are both from the general. That's what it's also a lot of the book that was. The only one. And that there's one candidate and there's. Like bottle as opposed to elected somebody out there check opposite. Out of all of probably the election would be held march. Optical conducted regularly scheduled. Election that. Who Clancy thanks so much for joining us and I you have another point you gotta get to really appreciate your time in your insight on these issues and roads you know it's just. A day a day away in and really a day and a half away from the election and we hope the people to start taking this seriously. Well and get out. Well no factor are. Cheryl. Thank you so much. We wanna hear from you 260187. If you got something to say we'll be right back after the break this is you'll Norman under Dario. We're back you were talking about the election due Politico on our ready jaguar pulled do political debates influence your opinion of the candidates and your vote. 61% of the respondents say now that they're not influenced at all by. The debates in last night's debate there was an opinion piece written by Stephanie grace said the new loans advocate. And you know she and they'll pines and says the following the questions on the issues covered. Familiar ground the clear tension among the three candidates vying for the two run up spot was new. Or at least newly opened and does the same thing that we were talking about we're Clancy Dubose just a few minutes ago. Is that what I left with from the debate. Was the exact same observations that Stephanie made. About the debate is and they. It was clear to me that there was a huge tension amongst the three candidates and at this point in time they're not liking each other very much. And I'm sure that's just the way it goes as it relates to some of the attacked pieces that are that have been done. Then things. That nature. Then. You know as a relates to the election and trying to distinguish themselves from one another has been more about attacking. Their opponents as opposed. To any thing. Else. And we've also on attacks lot of Sturm. A lot of text about Troy Henry. You know it was unfair that he was not included in the debate last night. A lot of these debates developed the the rules for the debate long before the debate and because there are so many candidates that qualify. They take an arbitrary number typically. Relatively low. That if you're not above that number you're not gonna be considered for the debate nothing in this particular case it was 5%. Then the most recent polls had all of the other candidates other than the three that were there at less than 5%. So. That's why there were no other candidates. In that participated in the debate. Because again it's kind of on ruling in very different called you can't ask him any questions you can't take a deep dive into the issues. And you don't get very far if you have a casting candidates that's far too great. In dealing with that I know that there are some people that are incredibly upset by that because there has been a lot of chatter that mr. Henry is done well. At some of the other debates that didn't have that symbol etched similar type of rule. Imposed at that point in time. There's also another question about in you heard I asked. Clancy about how does the undecided vote break out because in some of the council manic districts. In the mayor's race than the undecided voters over 30%. Which is a huge number at this. Late game late in the game. And you kind of wonder how that's going to break out and as he pointed out. A lot of people in the undecided they just don't vote their and they are not motivated and at stimulated to go vote. And then in many cases it at this point how many game. The undecideds break out very similar to the percentage vote to the candidates have at the present time. So just in my experience. It a particular candidate is in low single digits it's the undecided is not typically gonna break out and a large enough fashion. To make a statistical significance in the race. On Election Day so we wanna hear from you 260187. Or tax 87870. If you have any. They knew you wanna talk about relative to the election give us a shout this is Noual Norman and everybody else.
