Are you a mixed couple? A bi-political couple? Are you for one candidate and your spouse, partner or significant other for the other candidate? How’s it going? Is there tension or respect for each other? What about family members and friends? Have you lost any friends on social media or in real life over this election?
A tweet about a United Airlines gate agent refusing to allow 3 girls, one 10, to board a flight wearing leggings exploded on social media and is now a mainstream media controversy. The girls were flying on a pass from a United Airlines employee and the dress code for “pass travelers” is stricter than other passengers. Do you consider leggings inappropriate?
Do you think the extremes are destroying their positions or do you applaud them for their unrelenting positions?

Eight call if we get as many as he calls the caller is gonna win but illicit for the LSU Faisal on. That will be your cue to call in and win. Have you lost any friends. If you want to leave any friends on social media or in real life over the selection. Are you part of a mixed couples. Are you part of by political couple you don't wanna hear of resorting for one the other sort of four to the other. Is seems as if there are people who were losing friends I mean I'm remembering stories about this in the news it that people are losing friends. All over this election. No I was in a marriage I was in a dinner relationships. Where we didn't vote the same. But I have to admit that it is more contentious. This. Campaign. Than any that I remembered the past. So what if you've lost any any friends there are new polls out that show the race is close there are new pulls out the show the race is not so close. And if Fox News poll shows that Hillary is ahead by three points and on line poll shows that Hillary's up by fourteen points and part of that may be. People who are participating in an online poll. May be different from people who are reacting to a poll that might tell be conducted over the phone for example. But you know you you got to think it would all the negative stuff. About trump. And about Clinton. And neither candidate is dominating the other. It's it's. Amazing. And there really is too close to call. There are those who are saying that trump really doesn't have much of a path to victory with the Electoral College. First of all I think it's. Irresponsible journalism. To promote that idea. And I really don't think that there should be polls allowed. A month before. The election. But we all have to vote. And even though Louisiana we talked about this recently to meet the challenge is getting out in voting Louisiana is a very very bright red state. When it comes to national politics. Answer don't trump is expected to carry Louisiana. We have eight electoral votes were not one of those battleground states and I guess some people are happy that we're not a battleground states. Because then they would all be here all the time I mean my god poor Ohio. And they're getting bombarded by candidates. Florida. Colorado all New Hampshire. And Pennsylvania. They're getting bombarded with these these candidates at a traffic jams when they come to town hall kinds of problems so. Maybe we should feel blessed they were not a battleground state. But even if Louisiana is a red state. I would hope that if you're supporting Hillary Clinton. Or. Johnson or starring. That you'll still get out and vote. It's it's an important thing that we do even if you think your vote doesn't matter. When I would like to see you mentioned this briefly yesterday and I think this would be a quick fix. To our system. It would make everybody's vote count. Instead of the state. Awarding all of the the electoral votes. Based on who wins the popular vote. Take the popular vote. And give the electoral votes from each state. Proportion. Proportionate to the popular vote. If if Donald Trump. Gets 60% of the vote. And Hillary Clinton gets 40% of the vote and Donald Trump gets 60%. Of the eight delegates and Hillary Clinton gets 40%. Of the telling the to me that would be a quick fix it would really make everybody's vote count more than it does now although I still argue that your vote does count. Because ultimately the popular vote in the state determines who gets the electoral votes so it is up to us to vote and and even know where red state. Don't assume that don't trust gonna win. And not vote and don't assume that Hillary can't win so you're not gonna vote also Donald Trump is offering a new deal for Black America. The three promises are. Safe communities. Great education. And high paying jobs. And truck saying that Hillary Clinton is part of the system that has failed African American communities. Is part of what trump said. Here's the promise. I made tease out what these votes from me or not. I will be your greatest champion. We live in a very divided country. But I will be your greatest chance. To you notice how his tone has changed. You know to tell his tone has come down. Is CC finally listening to those around him. If Donald Trump had been doing this all along. And it trumpet focused on being the outsider. Being the guy who. Is anti political establishment if he had focused on that instead of all the stuff that he's focused and don't blame the media. Donald Trump. Like people uncovered things but it was the way Donald Trump handled the stuff that has kept it in the news over and over and over again. You've covered been focused on this. Persona that he has sometimes now in this campaign I think with all the negative stuff that comes out about Hillary and I mean there's more new emails that come out right now. Coming out today about about Bill Clinton's relationship. We end up with the with the with company's consulting companies. When she was secretary of state I mean it is ugly it's written I mean the clintons the clintons used politics for personal gain. You can lock the clintons if you want to cannot be blind to that reality. So again the choices are a mess. Hillary says there early voting numbers mean people are motivated. You only see numbers like this when people are motivated to stand up for what they really believed then and I really believe Americans are coming together at the end of this election. And not just Democrats but Republicans and independents. Yeah they're they're some talk about that they're you know getting closer to the election on some people were coming home on Democrats are coming on the Democratic Party more Republicans are coming home to the Republican Party. A we have another Hillary Clinton out parody song we played I don't drop artists on yesterday's Oregon Hillary Clinton parody song a coming out night in the next hour. It's it's pretty funny. It's to the a tuna Billy Joel's honesty song is called dishonesty. So I guess they're suggesting that Hillary Clinton is dishonest. Oh my god. And you know this campaign is just inundated with rumors. I'm skewed if you wanna join us for your comment this afternoon we are just getting started our numbers 2601 a seventy. Erick are 5042601. A sanity tech's number 870 sanity will be back on every bureau. I think this is a pretty appropriate song to to play well where are talking about politics in this campaign the Eurythmics. When I lied to you. Hell yes they would as often as they can and they had and they will continue to line. By the way on it's been announced now that the prosecutors in Jefferson Parish are going for the death penalty. In the that the death if Taylor free though that we see a young lady who was killed the 21 year old I think she was when he went. I killed at the end of the canes and location on Wii has boulevard Kenner. A stabbed to death. On they want to killer to be dead. They want him to dot. And a lot of people love would agree with with that. That goal. New polls are out shows the race is close social the race is not so close but it's really too close to call at this point. And Donald Trump says he's offering a new deal for black Americans. Three promises. Safe communities. Great education. And high paying jobs. I'm asking. People to break from the bigger failures of the past. And to imagine the amazing. Possibilities. For our future and our future together. And so the question is how's he gonna do that I mean how. It's it's easy to say. Safe communities it's easy to say great education and high paying jobs I mean that's that's campaign rhetoric and both of these candidates present that kind of campaign rhetoric. Question is how's he gonna do it. And Kenny actually do. And also have you lost any friends stories are strained relations with your family members because of this election because it's so divisive and America. It's it's dividing friendships. It's dividing families. And here's our party general opinion poll have you lost any friends on social media or in real life over the selection 61%. Say yes. 39% say no.

So Marcellus saying that tees has some strange relations. And I can match I mean in the past there have been times when I have not voted like my wife or girlfriend at the time. And it didn't cause any intention mean I I realize that our votes cancel each other out and I guess it would have been. Justice effective if we stayed home and didn't vote but both of us and all these situations both of us felt like we need to vote because that was our responsibility. And I know a lot of people don't wanna hear this because they've got really good excuses for not voting and they don't wanna lay down the veterans. I'd I personally believe that Americans owe it to the veterans. That have. And continue to fight for our freedom. Around the world. It we have a responsibility. To them to vote. So even if your vote is canceled out doesn't it make you feel good to get out and and actually. Cast that vote. I would hope that that's not something that's it's lost it is hampered society.

Albert do you think there is some truth to what trump says what he too talks about how Hillary's been a part of the system for a long time in this system has taken diluted Democrats taken the the black vote for granted.

We're talking about those those couples that whether your your partner your spouse or do significant other whatever. On the person you're dating. The people who are on in a situation where one's voting for one knee and resorting to the other. Got to Texas says I haven't lost any friends but I have lost my mind and that I get peers are pretty general opinion polls. Have you lost any friends on social media or in real life over this election. 67%. Say yes and 33%. Saying no give us your opinion by going to W if you don't talk cup.

What I went into the republic in an op beta duplicate chairman so that I am done with it from that point all. I can understand that. But politically speaking. On. It. I think it is candidate. Is. That the anti American and as a and it. As the problem military. Officer I'd just couldn't imagine. The true today having seven such a president who is going property for any human. Marcelo do you think the troops would unite and and and follow the commander in chief regardless of who's president. It would be an area what did Spain oddly under truck. Marcella appreciate the call. Have a good afternoon if not you've got a comment you wanna join our show this afternoon on numbers 2670. Recovered 504. 260187. Or text number is 87870. So I'm Donald Trump says that he's got three promises. As part of his plan to. Make a new deal for African Americans. Grow the African American middle class and to provide a new deal. For a Black America. That deal is grounded in three. Promises. Safe communities. Grade education. And high paying jobs. My vision rests on a principal. That has defined. This campaign. Right from the beginning and you've seen where we've come from. And where we are right now. Called America first. You wonder if Donald Trump is going to maintained his new composure but he has. So did Donald Trump Halloween mask. Is selling out. We'll tell you about that he toward your calls when we come back I'm scoots on every WL. For the baby boomer generation the call Norway is something we dealt with every day and it was on this day October 27 1962 during the Cuban missile crisis. A U2 reconnaissance plane shot out of the sky killing the pilots the song reflects that fear. That's on in 1962 that was two years of with a Beatles came out this reflected discs have fear is that the United States and Russia would get involved in nuclear war. Some Slidell ads here on every WL. Yeah hello. You know I don't. With Sam lay idle talk about politics that's how I protect. Relationships. So you're close relationship you don't know Lou they're gonna. I do I just don't talk about what's gonna change mine then frankly I don't feel like debating Fox News somewhat of mom not talk to them off our Fox News. Old blue districts to you earlier and so the key at camp told him at camp out and vote yes you have heard that. He only canceled out of when he convinced are not below which was a pile thing to do. Don't. And to cancel out the opposite so. I don't war that way. And cheek instead or anyone who's been told that the election hasn't happened yet so don't not vote because somebody challenges that. And I agree with you and I appreciate the call and I maybe people should do we are doing and that is I don't talk about politics. I love this audience I love this tax and this is just such a reflection of how the audience gets to show. To access my grandfather is voting for Hillary. I would try to talk to non event but he died in 1984. I'm from Springfield are rosier on every WL. I rose. I am. Currently you handle. Are not believe. In. Yeah. Our anger that he can't. You know you learned. And more. Coming in Lee and learning. Yeah I mean rose as a legitimate point. And I appreciate the cult. And from just hand dug welcome to our show. Hey yeah I just wanted to say so mount. Receipt out child need you to Korea businessman. Hillary is a career politician. Well don't you want change right since career doctor to be the top there. Are anything like that there's a lot of career politicians. Do and politics. I mean look what happened in the race. Well that. That may have been just because of the type of person Wright make him wise in not because he was a businessman and then at the state of Colorado has a governor. John Hickenlooper who was the mayor of Denver. And before he became mayor of Denver he was a successful businessman owning. Owning a chain of pubs around Denver and he has done an excellent job with Denver and a good job of Colorado so. It can be done or not I think it's unfair to say that because Ray Nagin was a businessman and failed as a politician that every businessman over fail as a politician. He and look at sound track where. Well our. Duct I'm glad you colony that's I mean that is part of the conversation. If you're Arnold stay with us if you wanna join us for your comments on numbers 2601. In seventy. Erick are 5042601. Saturday at a tax receipt sanity seventy. You know this this whole campaign.

At least hopes ago. I'm scoot him we'll be right back on WL. Happy birthday today to leave Greenwood this song yourself played quite often especially around patriotic related holidays. God bless the USA Lee Greenwood 74 years old today. We're just a couple of minutes away from me giving out the code word and if you text the code word 272881. You're eligible to win 1000 dollars in cash. In our nationwide test you can't contest a Oklahoma Cory you're under WL. Eight and I don't gonna. At Quantico quick comment. He'd hear people talk about anger issues. And they really don't know Hillary well I mean you could go back and look at. There's many Iranians that it her blown up on there people. In public alternate Al bubble crop that. Just in general. I want dotted in particular that you support they came out Saturday. I 1%. The new covered. Foreign property negative so it's easy for people relate. He's told over and over again it trumps anger issues. Whatever are not is beyond which you could. She is the worst yeah it is in there. Yeah I mean I think it's fair to say she's a little better job are curtailing her anger from the public but it doesn't mean she's I mean I've heard their stories about how angry she can turn if you can get a private and that. That seems to fit the the image that a lot of people have a for including me including myself she's. She's determined to get what she wants and that seems to be when bill and Hillary do. And even if you love bill and Hillary. They're cheaters they're just artists they they have done a lot of bad bad stuff and there's a new report out now from WikiLeaks talking about Bill Clinton. I'm getting money just funnels into the Clinton find out which he was secretary of state is so what they're so there's a lot of dishonesty there. It's just a really interesting choice. Better another quick comment and you talk about that it was a bit like overvotes where and the deck there a way to solve that issue would be. At each state have one vote in whoever wins that ate the majority vote of the eight. Look at that point eight and at the end you know you get only stick. Of the Beijing when they let. So. Every state we don't have one electoral vote. And well that we do that would mean that we would be as much a battleground state is anybody else Corey appreciate the call I gotta get to break here.
