2:15 am
does he need to do to flip the state? we are asking former director of the republican party of new mexico, ash right. thank you for chatting with us this morning. what do you think donald trump needs to do to get it done? >> i think donald trump is doing his part, created a great economy in new mexico, crude oil production like he mentioned is skyrocketing, small businesses at an all-time high being created every day, hispanic and female employment is also at an all-time high. the real question is can the actual campaign on the ground translate that into hard votes? republicans have in my opinion roughly three main core issues they have to address, one is voter registration. if you look at it, 45% of all registered voters in new mexico are democrat, only 30% are republican. republicans have a long way to
2:16 am
go to increase their portion of voter registration or capture a large number of independents to be successful in the state. the other part of being successful in the metropolitan areas of the state. if you look where albuquerque is or santa fe which is in the center of the state donald trump lost those two kelly the loan by 85,000 votes in 2016. they have to find a way to capture more independents or increase republican turnout. the only way to actually make them successful. rob: a tricky part for republicans in those bigger cities. in 2016 hillary clinton wins by 70,000 votes, 385,000 to 26,000 votes. gary johnson has 74,000 votes, 9%, you don't have him in the mix this time. the president needs to pick up
2:17 am
pretty much all gary johnson's vote. is that possible or bridge too far? >> it is possible but it is going to be a challenge, the challenge comes in breaking it down by county. gary johnson as you are mentioning is a curveball republicans have to address. he ran on a moderate ticket and the question, can republicans continue to message hard conservative voters in the western part of the state working in oilfield jobs and at the same time produce a message that will play well with independents in larger metropolitan areas where mister johnson performed well? >> new mexico is the state with the highest population of hispanic people and among hispanics donald trump has a 25% approval rating of the chairman of new mexico's republican party says one thing donald trump
2:18 am
could do to improve that number is toned down his rhetoric in terms of immigration policy, securing the border with --'s tone needs to change. do you agree with that and you think the message will reach the president? >> i think that is probably right in a border state like new mexico. the third populist county is on the border. that was a state, county susanna martinez won in 2010 when she was running for governor, a resident of that county, a county that is now wildly democrat. i can see that message and not sure that will translate and get all the way to the white house, because they are looking at messages that affect lot of people across the country but that is where he is coming from. rob: and aggressive move by the trump campaign. got a question for you.

to iran's involvement in the unprecedented bombings of saudi oilfields. >> proof that iran is behind it? >> it is looking that way. i don't want war with anybody but we are prepared more than anybody, we wanted to find a definitively who did this in dealing with saudi arabia, the crown prince and so many other neighbors. we are talking about it together and see what happens. >> intelligence reports a sophistication of drone attacks prove houthi rebels didn't excellent. how will this escalate tense relations? rob: brett velicovich is live. how do you think the united states should respond? >> the latest attacks are proof
2:33 am
the iranian regime is okay with upsetting the global energy supply and has no intention of stopping their destabilizing actions anytime soon. in their eyes if they cannot export oil neither should anyone else so they have nothing to lose but the latest attacks represent a serious change in their calculus and an escalation that warrants a more direct response and their recent activities have gone unchecked too long. they keep getting away with it and that emboldens them. this is a regime that only understand concepts of power and strength. we look week in their eyes, conducting these attacks. ever since they shot down our drone over the persian gulf, we would see more iranian attacks and we are seeing that here because we set a redline whether we wanted to do that or not. if they can strike one of our most important military assets in the region, $100 million drone what is the key thing for

2:35 am
reach a distance of 800 km from their territory within yemen is a significant feet. that is one of the reasons. the other reason, a spike in oil supply. they benefit from attacking the saudis. if they can't export oil they don't want the saudi to and they benefit from this. everything points to iran and it is clear it came from houthi territory. rob: rouhani say this was a reciprocal response by the yemeni people exercising their legitimate right of defense. a reciprocal response to aggression against yemen for years. if we are right about it being iran. a second topic obviously, pandemonium in the energy markets and oil prices have shot up. donald trump says we should be energy independent in this country. is that a legitimate claim?
2:36 am
>> in a large way the president has pushed us to become energy independent particularly when it comes to oil. we are the largest producer of crude oil but talks about releasing our research in this case, we don't have to do that. the saudi's are working hard to get production back to those levels was we need that for our economy which depends globally on everything working out, we need to get their production facilities back online. we should be energy independent and we are working towards that. >> iran and the president are not going to meet at the general assembly next week so more to come on this one. >> some headlines, a man is charged with murder after his family is found dead. police arresting michael jones, his wife's body, he led officers to the remains of their four young kids would investigators

rob: welcome back. ballot harvesting, credited for flipping several house seats during the blue wave. it is a method that has been banned in states like north carolina but embraced in liberal california. >> it is called a legal form of voter fraud. is it fair for either party to use in the 2020 race? here is director of data and strategy, thanks for coming on
2:53 am
this morning. define what ballot harvesting is and why does it lead to voter fraud? >> third parties are allowed to go to voters who have not cast a ballot and encourage them to do so, help them fill the ballot out, collect it and return to the municipality. on its face, that is fraught with problems and if someone is convicted in a criminal trial with evidence of the same chain of custody problems the left would be screaming for a mistrial but they are enthusiastic about embracing this in states like california and anywhere else, legally enacted into law to help them deliver elections. rob: you think something screwy is going on in the process between taking the ballot from the absentee voter and delivering it? the people doing the harvesting carrying it from one place to another have an agenda and could
2:54 am
lose ballots. >> or help people fill out ballots they do want, not just voter fraud but voter intimidation and vote buying. imagine tony soprano harvesting a ballot or joe biden's corn pop making sure you voted the right way. opens the door to all kinds of fraud. many states have outlawed it. voter fraud is one of the most reliable voter positions in the last 5 election cycles, there have been 1000 convictions for voter fraud and this opens the door to it and part of the problem is when it happens in california the right doesn't have the infrastructure to investigate or evidence this is done fraudulently. if that was in place, i'm sure there would be a tremendous number of problems.
2:55 am
rob: we showed a graphic that shows an election with poll numbers and election results were far different. you think harvesting could have had an impact on this election? >> i'm sure it did. testimony lesser media outlets, volunteers were going out and finding random people on streets and helping them fill out their ballots under their cell phones. i wonder which way those people who had no idea who the candidates were how they encouraged them how to vote. carley: this is what happened in north carolina which led to the special election that occurred last week and the argument for ballot harvesting is volunteers drop off ballots for you, people who don't have family members or are disabled which is white is legal in some states. thank you for joining us. >> happy to be here. rob: we will be right back. in my line of work, i come face-to-face with a lot of behinds. so i know there's a big need for new gas-x maximum strength.
