Out of power due to sandy.
How will it make getting to the polls -- and voting.
On Election Day even more difficult or people even thinking about that we've -- -- -- thinking about a former Press Secretary Al Gore democratic political strategists is economical some number of times she is again from DC and from Manhattan institute Fox News contributor.
By Judith -- here in studio.
With us this.
I think the election impact -- is from sandy -- it's getting to the polls sorts just still looking at a.
From a political perspective.
Everything now as we've to keep saying depends on the ground games -- the ground game.
Is going to be determined by which side can get out its voters now obviously on the East Coast that's going to be a challenge in the areas that have been hard hit.
-- hours democratic states absolutely but what.
And most fascinating thing this morning was the New York Times report on the number of lawyers.
Who had been dispatched throughout the country but especially in the swing states like Ohio where you have.
Seventy lawyers on the GOP side verses vs get that -- for a great sport 600.
Just in Cuyahoga County 2500.
Lawyers throughout the state of Ohio -- -- to make sure that not only -- voters get out but that the pollsters themselves aren't slowing people down.
That people aren't being turned away.
The Republicans for example are going to be concentrating on who who who is really registered to vote do they deserve to Brian right.
And that's what this game is all about so -- Are you from your perspective from a the perspective of supporter of the president are you worried about the history say that's not really gonna have a a big effect on the actual outcome.
Let's have a huge effect and actual outcome but not actually necessarily in the ways that we expect -- as it as did a thing and has -- said the states that we're talking about -- than most impacted by the hurricane are predominantly.
Blue States were talking about new York New Jersey Connecticut and Pennsylvania so were they affected -- but the president.
However -- it's true that we're gonna hadn't potentially millions of people will have a harder time getting to the polls.
And they aren't states that take true advantage of early voting.
So what that means is that there's be.
Potential for a scenario that seemed awfully far fetched before last week which is one candidate winning the -- -- vote and another winning the Electoral College.
The presidents at its gonna cut into the right residents popular about talk also -- second.
You think it's a good chance -- was a popular vote.
The Republican and the Democrat and I got that -- 2008.
Cat and it cuts and you talked about total I'm not sure that it out.
I'm that it -- a tremendous.
Impact it to the extent that run it would actually wind up hot -- about.
But I do you think that it lessens the president's -- their vote total and that raises some questions about domestic the handicap the race force and Judith.
I think at this point it's simply too hard to call I -- night -- I don't think we can really talk knowledgeably about what's going to happen right now like what we have.
Steam with sandy is the freezing of this election -- mean you don't see the issues that we used to see like.
Then god the or -- fast and furious the other scandals.
All of this has been swept away -- -- something that's a net positive -- net positive for the president and another net positive calling attention once again.
To that crucial role played by the federal government.
FEMA is there to back to -- thirty teams being deployed next week on the East Coast Charles.
Just talking about that about that.
That it like you take its positive looks good I think it -- and areas like you know there are areas that haven't.
To Staten Island for example bills that were not in the attention we need to -- -- net.
Net it's positive for the government.
Absolutely look at the 'cause since 3% cut that president Obama's at a proposing to FEMA -- -- a 40% -- -- that governor Romney wants to run an act Christie quick last word done on next Tuesday to ten.
Absolutely we've seeing to parts of the president's closing message just in the last couple days.
One who was governor Chris Christie with his arm around the president talking about what a great leader -- -- yeah the second part of -- was today with -- good jobs numbers for the president I think we're gonna see a strong to -- and.
But did have more jobs added -- expected Iran about that even unemployment rate went up we'll talk more about that Christie sets -- Judith Miller.
