7:08 am
i think the fascinating thing the two anti-establishment outsider candidates the most are drawing the biggest. it's almost as if the visiting team which is the outsiders are drawing more fans than the home team which is the establishment in this nomination process. but i think orge, what we have to figure out with the phenomenon of donald trump and bernie sanders is can they translate rallies into results? >> we first have the first votes in about three weeks. bill clinton linking him to bill cosby, anthony weiner, clinton not responding but could that blunt the democrats's on women an issue in the general election? >> well, i think it does two things. first i think it helps donald trump in the republican primary because the republicans don't likery clinton so i think it helps him there. but i think the second thing it does more than a scandal it reinforces that these are the candidates of the past. candidate of the past and as you know, george, in any election people want to vote future and not the past and if they can do

7:11 am
it's been an ugly first opening as you just heard. it's the worst opening for the dow for the year that we've ever what you want to do is just sit tight for the moment and not worry. now, why should people think that what happens in china affects us? it's not like vegas, what stays inow affecting us as a global market. any companying that have a u.s. standing but global footprint like the starbucks of the year, the young brands, they love cken in china, big chinese exposure and you may very well own those stocks, so these are still good companies going through a slight blip in a tough time. >> fox business network has then debate coming up on thursday. you think the focus will shift from terrorism to the economy. >> absolutely believe it does. how could it not? people voten the end. >> great to see you, liz. >> good to see you. >> you can see the fox business network, the next republican debate coming up on thursday. george. >> thanks, robin.
