in, 90% assurity. 27% on biden, bernie moving along quite nicely and closing the gap, much wider gap than a month ago, let's take a look at joe biden's history here, he does have a very bipartisan history as he calls himself very progressive but these are some more conservative bills that he has supported in the past, bankruptcy reform, drug bill, defense of marriage act back in 1986. i mean, when he calls himself a progressive, do you buy it? >> a lot of those, look at it, most of those things president trump is more progressive than he is. that's the irony, president trump has more progressive record. look at the crime bill, he was the chief sponsor, joe biden, president trump did criminal justice reform which overturned most what are seen as racist laws, look at the iraq vote, joe

2:36 am
as much name recognition yet and so i think at this point it's way too early to say it's going to come down to bernie versus biden. rob: okay, my buddy has gambling in vegas and you can win who will get the 2020 election and nomination, right now the leader is kamala harris, she has the best numbers. guys, thank you so much, we appreciate it. carley: time now is 36 minutes after the hour, this vietnam veteran's life saved on the battlefield by medic after stepping on land mine, 50 years later he's thanking him, they join us live. rob: get your daily fix of caffeine by subscription, major fast-food chain wants you to pay by the month.
