3:06 am
now so this is the scene taking place in florida tens of thousands of his supporters are waiting for him to take the stage as pence addresses them and florida you'll recall is crucial to trump's victory in 2016 and will be again next year if he hopes to retain the white house 0 scarily halkett has more on why florida is so important in the upcoming presidential race. what. meet up voter 2020 u.s. presidential candidates will want to win over radio journalist william diaz is latino undecided and most importantly lives in florida the crown jewel in american politics republicans they are doing an excellent job in florida and to me they beasts are. and you know what a moderate democrat he says republicans are simply more engaged he is came to the
3:07 am
united states 30 years ago from venice wella despite president trump's hardline immigration policies he is considering voting for trump but he'll need to do more to support those suffering in venice wella more from the adoring. tribes record over the past 2 years will be front and center i will build a great great wall trump's biggest 26 promise to build a wall along the southern border to stop illegal immigration has proven to be a challenge he was unable to secure funding from congress so he declared an emergency to start construction that's being challenged in the courts a recurring theme throughout his 1st 2 and a half years as his opposition uses legal means to oppose some of his biggest policies those challenges included his travel ban on people from 5 muslim majority countries and although it faced widespread opposition initially trump managed to successfully implement it it also helps that he appointed 2 justices to the
3:08 am
country's highest court as a candidate trump promised voters america 1st policies he made good on that pledge and angered u.s. allies and now saying he would withdraw the united states from the paris climate accord and pull out of the 2015 agreement to limit iran's nuclear program still the u.s. economy remains steady even as trump has picked fights with china mexico and europe accusing them of unfair trading practices expect to boast about a strong u.s. economy and historically low unemployment even among voters of color despite persistent criticism traumas policies hurt minority voters we know that florida is a state that's becoming increasingly. and i think that's a that's a state where he's going to have to. addressed that issue another problem for donald trump trying to convince voters to look past at least 15 investigations in 3
3:09 am
states looking into trump's business charity and campaign and even with the muller report behind him democrats in congress are still investigating generating problematic headlines for a president trying to win re-election can really help get al jazeera orlando let's talk to david paul you logos he's the director of the suffolk university political research center he's joining us from newton massachusetts thanks very much for speaking to us david on al-jazeera so as that rally takes place in florida right now some of the polls the latest polls that is show that the president is behind the main democratic presidential contenders nationally as well as in florida how significant are polls at this point in the race. well they're significant in that those particular pose you're citing are outside the margin of error and one when you have poll data that's outside the margin of
3:10 am
error it takes. it has a huge impact obviously one of the shortcomings of that polling is that the election for president in the united states is in a binary decision it's not democrat versus republican which is how those questions were posed in that 3rd party candidates although they don't get a lot of publicity and attention really do matter in u.s. elections in 2016 for example 13 states had more people voting for 3rd party candidates than the margin of victory between donald trump and hillary clinton so they do matter so are you saying that polling right now is somewhat flawed. no i don't think the methodology is flawed but i think if you pose who would you vote for a democrat versus republican it doesn't give you a complete picture there wasn't a ballot on any state in the 2016 election that had 2 choices hillary clinton
3:11 am
donald trump most of the states had numerous candidates including 3rd party candidates i'll give you a perfect example donald trump won michigan 511000 votes but 250000 votes were cast for all of the 3rd party candidates wisconsin the margin was 23153000 people from wisconsin voted for 3rd party candidate so you have these really close elections that a lot of these states but you have this big block of people in many of these states that do matter and so in our polling and there's no perfect solution by the way poll wise but we try to include 3rd a 3rd party candidate as an option because when we were polling in 2016 there were a lot of people who hated donald trump and would never vote for donald trump but they really didn't like hillary clinton and so the 3rd party candidacy are a vessel for people who are upset at both political parties or who can't vote for
3:12 am
one party and won't vote for another i see and david apologies but just as you're speaking to us we are looking at the life picture right now from orlando in florida where donald trump and his wife the 1st lady millennia have just walked out onto the stage so we do expect to hear him speak momentarily david and i have to cross over to that when trump speaks but i'll stick with you for the time being. what do you think what can you tell us about his mindset right now when it comes to polling numbers because the reports coming through say that he in fact fired several posters after internals polling numbers showed that trump was lagging as we were saying behind the democratic presidential candidate so the sounds like he's worried about the numbers. you know it's a classic case of shoot the messenger look he he should be worried i mean no
3:13 am
incumbent president should be trailing anyone whether it's a 2 person ballot test or a 3 person about by 10 points so i think that's a significant finding but you do have fluctuations in the polling he's now in in a state florida which was another one of those 13 states where votes cast for 3rd party candidates well exceeded the margin of victory between donald trump and hillary clinton so you know i think democrats can't be focused on this 3rd party issue quite yet 3rd party candidates get excluded from the national debates but they are a vessel in a lot of people of voted 3rd party in the united states not just ralph nader tipping the election between al gore and george bush in florida many many years ago but also ross perot and others so there are a lot of dynamics in play but 1st democrats have to take care of business next week kicking off with the democratic debates we've got polling data coming out tomorrow
3:14 am
that are going to inform us about what democratic voters who say that they'll vote their state's primary a caucus is saying they want to scott's as the major issues and then from there we'll have a democratic nominee and there might be a viable 3rd party option or they may not be but it's certainly in our history that many people do vote for 3rd party candidates in some of these states where they exceed the margin of victory between the major party candidates all right we thank you very much for speaking to us from newton in massachusetts thank you. and once again what you're looking at right now in florida is that campaign rally taking place donald trump walking up to the podium is expected to announce and kick off his reelection campaign right now. let's listen and i was
3:15 am
i. why we had such luck in our land there we love big you know lando thank you thank you orlando want to turn up was i you know i said this diverted big arena president trump speaking right now in our land florida let's bring in kimberly halkett she is missing and joining us from there so as we're saying kimberly the president has just started speaking to officially announce his reelection campaign. yeah he hasn't actually added those words it just took the stage all right not certainly there has been one meant to that has been building throughout this was that in fact this is the beginning of a very long more than 16 months till election day the official story was actually
3:16 am
the president of the united states in 2020 that throughout the night will have heard later it's been the president signs are even the vice president was evidenced by the number of people attending the stadium some $20000.00 thousands who was there this is the start of the growing conservative movement that will really like dollars from somebody like that who has kept his campaign promises all building a wall getting tough on immigration and freezing the number of jobs in the united states and lowering unemployment and they say this is a reason to talk about on should be wasn't carried throughout the speech and we also expect that he will try to play down as you have. the social media his poll numbers seem to show he's struggling to get above 44 percent something that he's
3:17 am
dismissed as fake news pointing to the media as not reporting the real story so these are some of the themes that was watching for me as he and now since his reelection campaign. so i can really i'm going to stick with you even though it's a little loud where you are as expected to talk us through the significance of florida self because it's quite important as he states for trump oh. it was absolutely a moaning is really it is difficult for the president because it's not even possible but this is the state that was in 26th you were declaring his election victory and it's one thing to realize would like to win again it's an interesting state because the state of idaho to fully all those in between democrats and republicans democrats take concentrated in the c.b.c. you know far more of the conservative voters supporting donald trump is trying to appeal to siphon state democratic voters with his message be successful at least
3:18 am
one of the cities the city of tampa florida is hopeful that it will happen again and also hold on to the energy that has been evident here and it is possible as it will build momentum for what is still a very good on the road ahead as your guest was speaking just before it was there is a democratic race that is going to capture a lot of the headlights with donald trump is hoping is that we've done this if you can use this time you see incumbent to start moving ahead with this campaign capture the oxygen which are the lead him to election day but again a very long road to a king can really house but thank you donald trump speaking at that rally in florida where he's expected to announce his bones for reelection to the presidency. still ahead on al jazeera. through us. secretary of state steps in to block saudi arabia from being added to another blacklists.

3:23 am
shift it's debatable whether it was wise or not i personally think that it was but that's certainly legitimately debatable and trump has gone back and then some to aligning with the sunni and the saudis now there's an added fillip or twist to this which is that it's less on principle and policy by trump as it is apparently. for a personal enrichment jarrad his son in law who's handling the issues has clearly been seduced by the saudis and the alignment is is with saudi there's another reason to that that's happened in that is the u.s. policy is closely aligned with the release mimics that of the likud party in israel which. is very hostile to around it i think there will be pushback from the democratic majority in the house of representatives and the democratic minority in the senate but the senate is remains controlled by the republican party and the
