tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News February 19, 2020 1:00pm-2:00pm PST
records today. my, oh, my. the nasdaq and the s&p, we say it just keeps going. she has proven us right. see you tomorrow. >> bill: all right, thinking of the record jackpot for wall street, it's vegas. you are looking at the paris hotel and casino in las vegas, five hours from another top democratic presidential candidates squaring off. bernie sanders is still surging, now with a double-digit lead in a new national poll. joe biden is still hoping to pull off a win. he is not surging. michael bloomberg still getting flack from all sides, democrats pounding the moneymaking while president trump is just pounding. welcome, everyone. i am neil cavuto. glad to have you. new records at the corner wall and broad. first, peter doocy on if what happens in vegas will stay in
vegas. jonathan hunt with the president in bakersfield, california, where it's on his mind as well. we begin with peter. >> michael bloomberg is not competing in nevada but he's going to be on the debate stage this evening and there's a ton of buzz. front page of the review journ journal. but being photo. we don't know exactly how he's going to get along with the other candidates on stage. we do know a little bit about the kind of opposition research that his campaign is cooking up. >> mike has went every public official should have: passion, match with principal. your legacy extends well beyond the five boroughs. >> part of the point there is that joe biden obviously had a very long record. so does michael bloomberg. >> the fact of the matter is,
this guy is talking about... let's talk about his record. >> joe biden is not the man to beat according to an internal bloomberg campaign memo that we got our hands on and it concludes that the bottom line is of biden, buttigieg, and klobuchar remain in the race despite having no path to appreciably collecting delegates on super tuesday and beyond, they will propel sanders to a seeminglinsurmountable lead. it's interesting because amy klobuchar had a strong debate in new hampshire and its credited with helping her finish a surprising third place in the first in the nation new hampshire primary. she might have some things to say tonight about bloomberg's campaign gurus think she should drop out. >> neil: it's amazing. you remind me, 3% and all the delegates that you need to win. they are already wrapping it up and concluding everything. thank you, my friend. peter doocy.
he's in bakersfield, california, jonathan hunt. >> the president is expected here in about 45 minutes. we are here in the heart of california farming country. as you take a look at the audience behind me, it's a very enthusiastic reception that awaits the president when he gets here. you might notice the desk on the podium as well. that's because the president will be signing an interior department decision that is related to water rights. the president began his day today heading from vegas where he overnighted to the palm springs area for fund-raising. millions of dollars in fact raised during a reception at the estate of oracle cofounder larry ellison. he was among the wealthy there, certainly the palm springs area. a lot of supporters, as he drove
from the palm springs airport to the wrong show maras estate of larry ellison. also a couple protesters. unlikely to be an issue when he gets here. mr. trump will be seeking the support and voting election 2020 of ordinary farmers. as part of that as i mentioned, he is expected to sign off on an interior department decision that rolls back endangered species protections that have essentially curbed water deliveries to central valley farmers. it's going to be a very popular move the president will make with the audience. it will be very well-received. as you are mentioning, as he makes the western swing, the president very much is keeping his eyes on nevada and that democratic debate stage which will be full of the candidates tonight. mr. trump over the last few days has certainly seemed focused on the candidacy of former new york
mayor mike bloomberg. the president has been happy to echo some of bloomberg's democratic opponents' concerns about the possibility or the accusation at least that bloomberg is "trying to buy the nomination" away from the front runner, bernie sanders. old so not unrelated to what's happening tonight in nevada, the president will leave here, bakersfield, california, and had to phoenix, arizona, where he will hold what will no doubt bed raucous campaign rallies. it's absolutely no coincidence, neil, that that rally is the stage in nevada. mr. trump knows better than anyone how to control his opponents. neil. >> neil: or steal some thunder. thank you. jonathan hunt, say it ain't so, joe, new report that claims
several joe biden fund-raisers are jumping ship and now supporting mike bloomberg. all this is biden is hoping to revive the campaign with tonight's debate in nevada and obviously get things going in south carolina. he's not on the ballot in either state, i might point out. with me as former obama economic advisor robert wolf, g.o.p. strategist, and from "the new york post." robert, you are well connected. is it your sense financial types are backing away from biden? aren't they going to wait it out? >> i think they are going to wait it out. he was here last week and the events were sold out. >> bill: didn't get as much as he helped. >> i don't know. what i heard from the campaign as they had a week post-iowa. >> neil: i think you know everything. >> you have to pay me more. the best way to look at it is unfortunate for us no
one is coalescing around one moderate candidate. they are between 10 and 20%. burning at elizabeth warren take up 40, 45% of the party. coalescing around burning which is around 30-plus percent. we talked about it, the moderate silent majority but as long as we are doing what obama said what not to do, the good old circular firing squad. >> neil: it's alive and well. the president is planning to steal their thunder, planning events up to that moment. no different this time. but it does steal their thunder and i think he's enjoying their disarray. >> look, i think he likes to give these side-by-side comparisons. you have president trump over here with 6 million new jobs, wages going up. then you have democrats over here, iowa, they can't even count the votes and outlooks like like they can't even pick a nominee. >> neil: how is that even
comparable. >> that's the point. we are over here running the country and they are over here not even be able to take care of basic political -- >> neil: once their biggest worry? it always seems to me if it could be bloomberg, it was once biden. could they be pushing bernie? >> when you look at somebody like bernie, all the symptoms and signs are there for the same things people said about president trump and he's only getting 30% of the vote. more people voting -- >> neil: the person who was supposed to remind me that is you. what i'm looking at is maybe a snapshot where it could be like a prize fight tonight. things don't live up to those expectations. what do you think they are going to try to do to bloomberg? >> it's interesting the people of been talking for years about how there's a battle for the heart and soul of the republican party for donald trump and what
happened. right now the two front runners apparently are people who aren't even democrats until very recently. were seeing a lot of what they are going to bring up about mike bloomberg with all the stop and frisk, women, people in the workplace. >> neil: any of that reflected in the polls? was the polling done prior to the release of the tapes? >> stuff and frisk, what he said on tape was pretty awful but people have known he's been for that and democrats have already been worried about how he's going to respond. he apologized when he got in the race but for many it wasn't enough. joe biden really needs something tonight but he has never performed that while in any of the debates. most people who have done well in the debates did so when they were targeting biden. harris. >> neil: that worked like a
charm. >> biden is still going. don't count him out but right now mayor pete buttigieg is the one who has the most delegates. nobody seems to think he can keep taking it in. don't count him out. everybody was surprised by his strong showing in iowa. >> neil: you're absolutely right. the focus right now on bloomberg tonight, he might regret accepting the invitation, right? or because it's been so widely telegraphed that he's going to be a pinata? >> we spoke about at the other night. we thought his best possibility was don't go to the debate. now i think we are at a point where he spent so many ads. you have to bring us in front of the curtain. we used to say with president obama get in front of the role-playing. he has to get out and make sure know what he stands for. >> neil: the intellectual approach to everything, not
emotional. >> it's not a debate. it's a question and answer. >> somebody like bloomberg, there's a danger come i think somebody should still try to convince him not to go. he's running the best funded project in the history of american politics and he's basically the quarterback held out of training camp and everyone else's in midseason form. amy klobuchar is chomping at the bit. you have individuals are going to try to -- >> a democratic strategist that will hire you right now. >> neil: a couple key developments. when you look at the media story, how is the media going to cover tonight? they're going to be looking to see if bloomberg stumbles badly, right? >> they are. all eyes are on him. interest and see which candidates really go after him. elizabeth warren already has on twitter, calling him an egotistical billionaire, like donald trump, she said. how hard are they going to hit him?
>> neil: how is he going to respond? >> you have to worry about being condescending. how hard are they going to go after him when they all want his money? even bernie sanders did not say he wouldn't take the 2 billion bloomberg is promising to spend about who wins. >> neil: we will watch it. to let you know, for those of you just tuning in, records today. i'm sure the democrats will be mentioning this tonight. nasdaq and s&p at new highs. the dow getting closer and closer to one but are the candidates debate really promising to deliver something very different? something that has nothing to do with those market numbers? after this. whatever monday has in store and tackle four things at once. so when her car got hit, she didn't worry. she simply filed a claim on her usaa app and said... i got this. usaa insurance is made the way kate needs it - easy. she can even pick her payment plan

means trillions of dollars more in taxes over the next ten years. the only differentiator is many trillions. susan li, scott martin. what's interesting, scott, about the way the president's positioning it, whatever you think of me, may be whatever you think of my tweeting or whatever, take a look around. the strong economy. go with it. what do you think? >> i love it, and he's right. it's one of those situations where the numbers on the results are speaking for themselves, not these grandiose plans of how things are going to work so great for everybody we all know, the economics, they are winners and losers. not everybody wins. people strive to win and that's a key behind a lot of the policies trump is introduced. i think you just look around, the democratic side of things, we are going to learn more tonight. mike bloomberg alone, a major beneficiary of wall street and now he's got all these ideas that seemingly are going to take
down wall street and penalize wall street for being as successful as it's been. >> neil: the big drive for democrats is find a winner. find someone who can be donald trump. they put their passions aside in favor of the candidate who will likely embody that. they are not quite sure about bloomberg. how is that going down? >> on wall street people are little bit surprised. as joe biden pointed out, bloomberg has been a republican most of his life. he is a proponent of capitalism, lower taxes, less regulations, trickle down and now he's talking about a transaction tax on wall street, expanding a rule that would be more oversight for the banks. its counter to what he said ten years ago. they are hoping he will move closer to the middle when the general election comes around if he is still around. >> neil: bloomberg is moderate in terms of some of the other candidates.
his costs are a few trillion dollars over ten years. wall street transaction taxes in the light, they are all going to raise taxes. how does bloomberg try to differentiate himself or can he? >> i don't think he's going to satisfy the left-wing base at all with these policy positions, even in announcing tax policy. it's going to fall on deaf ears. he's not a credible communicator on that subject. he has seen the democratic party is a guy who got filthy rich off the finance industry. the big problem for him is convincing democrats that he in any way deserves to be part of the race when the dnc clearly rolled out the red carpet in the velvet rope line for a guy who did naaman participate in the two first contest in the democratic primary. that's what he needs to overcome. >> neil: the president is continuing to quote the markets and what they are doing. something very, very important to him. if it's hard to gauge where the markets go the rest of the year
and all of that but normally, normally they are kind of indicative of what's happening in the economy. it all seems pretty stable right now. the coronavirus uncertainty notwithstanding. will it continue to be the wind at his back? >> i believe it well. you make a good point. things seem eerily okay, don't they? it's after a lot of things the market and economy of had thrown at it. the federal reserve a year ago hiking rates. overall i think the economy has the wind at its back and i think one reason we are seeing their record highs day after day and we are going to see them probably tomorrow too after tonight's debate, you're going to see the democrats continue to fray that's why the markets like it because it gives trump a better chance in november to pull it out. >> neil: susan, when you talk to traders, with their biggest worry? i'm sure it's not a focus on the campaign. i'm sure it's the virus. >> goldman sachs came out with a note saying the market isn't really counting for how big of
an impact coronavirus might have especially when you have china talking about the economic crisis. that's what they are equating the epidemic too. some concerns and people aren't really pricing and improperly with the record markets. >> neil: when you talk of record markets and michael bloomberg being front and center, he's mr. market, mr. wall street. of course he made the terminal that became ubiquitous and make made him worth 60 having billion plus. how does the end of handling it? he couldn't and of sounding an awful lot like the president talking about wall street. >> of course. he is transparency and oligarch. the dictionary definition, a guy who uses his resources to control political conversation and that's what he's doing. tonight's debate will be interesting because it's a liability for him. it's an opportunity to answer questions instead of controlling the airtime he has. ads he's purchased everywhere. when i go to sleep, my dreams
start with a mike bloomberg ad. i don't know how we got to that. >> do you sleep well, then? >> neil: the difference between your dreams and mine. might involve the grand slam meal at denny's. thank you all very, very much. the remaining cruise passengers are off the ship and shipping out to their home countries. they have been cleared of the coronavirus. my next guest and her husband, they are not that lucky and not that happy. r problem. ahh no, come on. i saw you eating poop earlier. hey! my focus is on the road, and that's saving me cash with drivewise. who's the dummy now? whoof! whoof! so get allstate where good drivers save 40% for avoiding mayhem, like me. sorry! he's a baby!

health authorities began allowing passengers to disembark from the diamond princess which had been under quarantine. americans on board the cruise ship received letters from the u.s. embassy in tokyo rmte to return to the u.s.ote for an additional 14 days after leaving the ship.it's tied to m0 confirmed cases of coronavirus. the letter explains the cdc has concluded that despite efforts of quarantine, there is a high-risk passengers currently on board the diamond princess have been exposed to covid-19. 83-year-old american woman who became ill after disembarking another cruise ship which finally docked in cambodia is in stable condition at hospital in malaysia. her 85-year-old husband insisted on staying by her bedside. malaysian authorities agreed to grant his request. iranian media reporting covid-19 has claimed the lives of two elderly citizens in that count country. if confirmed, that would bring the death toll outside of china
to five. neil. >> neil: jonathan, thank you very much. my next guest was executive from that diamond princess cruise ship's before she and her husband were put under quarantine in nebraska where he has tested positive. geri joins us on the phone. thank you for taking the time. how are you holding up? >> holding up really well. >> neil: how is your husband? >> we are so thrilled because we got here monday and he had a very high temperature getting off the plane. and into the night and it broke and it came back. now last night he spent the night without a temperature which is a huge blessing. >> neil: that's great. i am curious, how are they handling you in nebraska? are you at a compound? what about facility?
>> we thought we were be taking to the air force base. that's what they told us. we were on her way after we were picked up at the airport. we were being taken away and because of where we were, we were thought we were on an air force base. we were not. i said it doesn't seem like an air force base. you are going to the nebraska medical center. they took carl to the hospital portion and i'm in -- i think there's three in the country, specialty quarantine units. that's my room. >> neil: how does it compare to the ship? >> [laughs] not as luxurious. the luxuries not there but i'm doing really well.
>> neil: are you ever able to visit your husband? >> no. i cannot leave my room. i cannot leave my room. i still have tested negative and have no symptoms. i'm very blessed for that. we were traveling with friends of ours from utah. she was the first to test positive, and the night before they called her, she had a temperature for a few hours. that was the only sign she had. she's been testing negative since she got to the hospital she sat in japan. but we are understanding after talking to doctors here is that you're either one and done, where it shows up and you have no symptoms. or like carl who had underlying symptoms. his immune system was already compromised and that's why he had a temperature a couple times. >> bill: i hope he's okay.
how are you holding up, their meals and the difference on the ship. they are delivered to you. you are locked in that room. doesn't sound like a whole lot of fun. >> well, you know, we are business owners. we own a radio station in our hometown in california. we are still working away. i have a treadmill and workout equipment in my room. i'm able to get up and do my morning routine. >> neil: i have a treadmill too. i just don't use it that much. geri, i wish you well. >> when you have nothing to do. >> neil: i understand. hang in there and my best to your husband. you have a book in the making. be well. can you imagine? pardoned by the president and now thinking the president and all of a sudden the press goes nuts.
active kindness and i also believe it's the beginning of the process to actually turn an injustice into a justice. >> neil: former illinois governor rod the boy thanking president trump for commuting his 14 year prison sentence. he'd been in there eight years. missed eight years of seeing his daughters grow up. given all that, you think the reunion with his family would be enough for everyone to be happy. not so. the president is it getting it from both democrats and republicans. the clemency decisions. let's go to howard kurtz. what's don' stands out, normally presidents do this near the end of the term. clinton, busy final few hours of his term. this president has been consistently doing these spurts. i don't know if the if the issue is he can pardon anyone he
wants. it gets an unusual amount of press. what do you think? >> it's an action by the president that's causing him to be absolutely denounced by the media. i understand the part about blago because as you say even some conservatives and republicans instead. rod blagojevich's shook down at children's hospital for $50,000 donation i never showed a smidgen of remorse. it's being portrayed by many in the media as a dark, nefarious trumpian assault on the criminal justice system rather than controversial moves similar to other past presidents. >> neil: you can argue whether the term he was given was justified. for the crimes, it doesn't fit and it hearkens back to something.
the time that the judge might want to slap roger stone. prosecutors looking at a higher number in the president looking at a lower number. what do you think? >> i make of it is that the president is not shy about intervening, whether it is twitter or talking to reporters about people, sometimes friends of hymns or former associates like roger stone who have been treated unfairly. the reason the president is connecting the pardons in the commutation is not just in the stone case but saying that -- trump says he's the nation's chief law enforcement officer, "the washington post" story saying that bill barr is saying that he might resign as attorney general and the president is not stopping the tweets. >> neil: what happens if barr were to resign? then the narrative becomes the palace revolt? >> the justice department will be without ahead.
people on the left attacking barr. they would say he's a man of great principle, he's the new mitt romney. bill clinton pardoned his half-brother, pardoned marc ri rich someone who fled the country. barack obama commuted the sentence of chelsea manning who hated endangered american lives by dumping a ton of classified military secrets out there. i wish they had gone through the normal vestas department system. he does have the power to do it. >> neil: with the fund-raiser with larry ellison. data oracle worker's. i don't remember a big stink.
they can do they want to do. what do you think of the dustup? >> i think it's hypocritical. president obama and other democrats have held fund-raisers using the ceos, people who onpa somehow the employees of the big tech company feel like it's a personal front that their ceo happens to support president trump. and of course the president loves to jump on it. >> neil: thank you very much. good having you. we talked about larry ellison, even richer than michael bloomberg. fourth about $69 billion. it's the relationship that gets a lot of attention. should it? after this. we could even help you with homeowners... oh! not again!
oh, thanks! you know automated lights are just the beginning. pretty soon they're gonna have eyes... everywhere. well goodnight. geico. over 75 years of savings and service. thouwhich is breast cancer metastthat has spreadcer, geico. to other parts of the body, are living in the moment and taking ibrance. ibrance with an aromatase inhibitor is for postmenopausal women or for men with hr+/her2- metastatic breast cancer, as the first hormonal based therapy. ibrance plus letrozole significantly delayed disease progression versus letrozole, and shrank tumors in over half of patients. patients taking ibrance can develop low white blood cell counts which may cause serious infections that can lead to death. ibrance may cause severe inflammation of the lungs

>> neil: president trump greeted by protesters in california today. the fund-raiser with oracle founder larry ellison. hillary vaughn has more. >> palm springs is called the presidents playground for its history of attracting high profile politicians to high dollar fund-raisers. today it was the scene for president trump's latest campaign cash call at the invite only golf resort. the ritzy rendezvous comes at an opportune moment for the oracle founder because his company is challenging amazon in court over the bidding process for a $10 billion cloud computing contract with the pentagon that they ended up losing. today larry ellison got some valuable face time with president trump along with donors. some played hundreds of thousands of dollars to golf with the president. tickets for twos starting at
$100,000 for a tee off with trump. supporters shelled out over a quarter million dollars. they got alone time with the president at a roundtable. ellison has hosted other presidents here but this was unique because it sparked a revolt at his own company. 5,000 oracle employee signed a petition trying to stop the fund-raiser from happening. several logged off and left work today out of protest. >> neil: thank you very, very much. speaking of support, we are learning from politico that a casino mogul is throwing his financial weight and support behind the president's reelection campaign. he's a multibillionaire. probably one of the republican party's most prolific givers. he's going to be holding a marce president and his las vegas home. apparently a very big home. he can invite a lot of people. meanwhile, another -- harry and meghan, let's say they have
brand-new problems. you see what i did? it's about the brand. they get that no two people are alike and customize your car insurance so you only pay for what you need. almost done. what do you think? i don't see it. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ >> man: what's my my truck...is my livelihood. so when my windshield cracked... the experts at safelite autoglass came right to me. >> tech: hi, i'm adrian. >> man: thanks for coming. ...with service i could trust. right, girl? >> singers: ♪ safelite repair, safelite replace. ♪
>> neil: we are told prince harry and meghan markle are announcing their royal duties will officially end marc. reporting queen elizabeth herself took those duties away by saying that the sussex royal title that goes with their names will no longer go with it. i have no idea what that means i know one of my favorite guests does. she's in encyclopedia of all things royal. from the dailymail.com. what does it mean? that they can't use the royal white? >> they have basically branded
themselves as sussex royal. the name of their very popular instagram account and it's also the name they wanted to use for the business venture. they kno -- they trademarked sux royal. it's what they wanted to call their charity venture. effectively with their business. it was going to be their brand and the queen has said no, absolutely not. >> neil: she personally made that decision. >> she will have had advisement from people within buckingham palace. >> neil: you don't want to mess with the queen. >> absolutely not. she is a very foreboding lady. you don't want to mess with her. >> neil: does any royalty attach themselves to their names? how big of a deal is it? >> if you think, william indicates instagram account is kensington rail so harry and meghan follow that pattern but no other royal has tried to create a personal brand for themselves. they haven't needed to. >> neil: do you need the name and the label? >> i don't think you needed but i think for harry and meghan it's a bit of a kick in the
teeth. they have invested tens of thousands of dollars in creating a very shiny new websites and trademarking sussex royal. they effectively have to go back to square one as far as creating a personal brand for themselves. so they can gain financial independence which is what they were so keen to do when they split from the royal family. >> neil: are they going to be worth more money or make more money in this roll than as full-time royals? >> absolutely. we are talking obama levels of finance. they could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars of that capitalize on everything. book deals, public speaking engagements, production deals with people like netflix and apple tv. they have the ability to release merchandise. i can't imagine how many people would buy a hoodie that says sussex royal or whatever they put on their merchandise. >> neil: does the flames is
allowed? -- do they lose their allure the longer they are away from the throne? >> they are playing it well and that they are teasing the public. yes they have retired from public life but we see glimpses of them every now and then. we have photos of harry stopping by the grocery store to pick up lunch today. >> neil: that was so staged. >> i can't imagine that he didn't think there would be photographers. >> neil: did he have money to pay for it? >> he had staff. if it were me in the grocery store. >> neil: they are going to do well. where will they settle? >> right now they are in vancouver. vancouver island. they've been looking at properties to buy. they've been looking at properties in malibu and new york, sources tell us. her families in california. i think if she wanted to get
back into the celebrity lifestyle, california would make sense. who knows? right now they aren't making any promises but they still have four more official royal engagements in the u.k. >> neil: where do they stay? >> they will stay at frogmore cottage. >> neil: and they had the whole thing redecorated and redone. >> they had to pay that money back. they have technically paid for ththe refreshments -- refurbishments. people are applauding the queen. people saying well done. they should lose their royal titles. no longer members of the royal family and people are delighting and poking a bit of fun at them and saying you wanted to put sussex royal on a pair of underpants. sorry you can't do that. >> neil: regular pants may be. >> regular pants. >> neil: the brothers, are
they getting along? >> they are doing better than they were. i don't think their relationship is gone back to the closeness that it was but they are speaking and communicating and william the supporting harry in this new lifestyle. >> neil: it sounds like they are not getting along. >> [laughs] i don't think they are as close as they once were which is a shame. >> neil: you are the best at this. more on this and the ramifications of the bigger issue here at home when we come back. . exercise. . exercise. but if you're also taking fish oil supplements... you should know... they are not fda approved... they may have saturated fat and may even raise bad cholesterol. to treat very high triglycerides, discover the science of prescription vascepa. proven in multiple clinical trials, vascepa, along with diet is the only prescription epa treatment, approved by the fda to lower very high triglycerides by 33%, without raising bad cholesterol. look. it's clear, there's only one prescription epa vascepa.
vascepa is not right for everyone. do not take vascepa if you are allergic to icosapent ethyl or any inactive ingredient in vascepa. tell your doctor if you are allergic to fish or shellfish, have liver problems or other medical conditions and about any medications you take, especially those that may affect blood clotting. 2.3% of patients reported joint pain. prescription power. proven to work. now with a new indication. ask your doctor about vascepa.
is about to become your problem. ahh no, come on. i saw you eating poop earlier. my focus is on the road, and that's saving me cash with drivewise. >> neil: the democratic candidates will pick their plans in just a few days ahead of the nevada caucuses was wrap up on saturday. what's interesting year for republicans who say democrats are wasting their time, they have to succeed on issues like health care which galvanize or take over the house. in the midterms come in they here. jason nichols, democratic
strategist. beverly, the one thing you hear is that health care works for us, it wasn't just a wedge issue, it became the issue, we spend a lot of time talking about the job games, they are hard to argue against, so we are going to focus on this stuff and maybe do better. what do you think? speaker health care is becoming the economic issue because what voters care about is for the cost to go down in health care. i thought it was fascinating this week when bernie sanders went around telling his medicare for all program and the culinary union saddened that we weren't going to endorse you and we don't want you to take care will make our health care away. to talk about some of these so-called moderates to talk about their alternative to this which is what amy klobuchar is talking about. republicans are going to have to start talking about their plans for health care moving forward.
>> neil: and another thing that's interesting, you are the expert here, the idea that michael bloomberg has to not pick apart the economy, numbers, job games, market, but to talk about with that success in the money you can raise from what we've done very well to get to these other goals, how is that going to go? >> i think bloomberg is going to struggle tonight. he has a whole lot to answer for as we know with so many issues in terms of stop and frisk. one of the things he has to argue on super tuesday coming up is to convince african-american voters he's on their side and it's going to be very difficult. he recently said he supported red lighting which destroyed african-american wealth and you say, okay, i've got a plan for that. i think it's going to ring hollow for him. i think health care is a winning issue for democrats across the board. we know the president's handling
of health care committees and the 30th percentile in terms of approval for the way he's handled health care. we know he supported federal lawsuits that basically will take away protections for pre-existing conditions. >> neil: you raise a good point and how this could sort out, but i wonder, beverly, there's a limit how aggressively they go after bloomberg. this is a same guy who wrote a check to help the nominee, the party. they don't want to go too far. >> he is and lot of influence over the years, not just with local communities across the country but some of those individuals he's going to be debating. what's fascinating is his team already came out and said that this is in his forte. he is not great at public speaking so they are already dumpling expectations just a little bit. they are hoping that if he doesn't have a super strong showing it won't hurt them too badly the polls. from a messaging standpoint, i do think he needs to be on the more moderate level, but he's going to be attacked tonight.
>> neil: i think you're right. keep the expectations low. that, jason, i built a career on it so maybe he should try. but how do you think he fares to and they question my fighting each other, screaming at each other, just endured the iowa craziness. how are democrats feeling? >> i think people are feeling optimistic that some people are worried that bloomberg is going to buy this thing. >> neil: if you did, would they support him? >> i think there would be an exodus of bernie sanders supporters, people who wanted to see bernie sanders, especially if he has the most democrats and the most votes at the end of the primary season. >> neil: but you need to get that 1,191. if it doesn't have that, it's not a birthright. >> it's not a birthright. but still, in elections the people who have most votes should win. it seems like most of the party i think would support
bernie sanders over somebody like mike bloomberg who is really just pumping money. >> neil: i want to thank you both very, very much. the big debate tonight. "the five" now. >> jesse: hello, everybody. i'm jesse watters, along with emily compagno, geraldo rivera, dana perino, and greg. this is "the five." is mini mike bloomberg ready for an onslaught of attacks from his democrats? he will be able to hide behind his million dollar ads and massive campaign apparatus. democrats are sure to make mike
