He joins us now to talk to welcome the program -- or are you now 56 the sense of the people in that district number nine.
Suggested -- wanted to resign can explain.
Absolutely not I'm somewhat suspicious of who commissioned the poll.
Well it was garrison near the -- -- -- the -- the very what -- -- organization who paid them to do it does that make a difference I would think.
How would -- make a difference it depends who they polled well and I wanted isn't.
And polls -- the wording of the poll.
An emphasis on the geographic areas a lot of things that enter into this I would be suspicious about number anecdotally that's not.
The numbers that -- I wouldn't give -- a sense of the constituency and it's politics of the rough political feeling of -- of the district because.
I think -- win is way out -- the left.
I -- always lose a model laughter.
Do Democrat on the left of the party.
This fact is that representative.
Of the nature of the district.
No in early in the end my campaign we give -- a -- on issues.
60% of the people we suggest that they would.
Vote for me or or agree with -- positions -- more conservative.
Except there's such socially economically them.

It's not that that I would do a good draw 40% of the vote -- -- 41% of the vote last round yes part of that is the strength of my personality the other is we -- weakness.
I'm not sure how that -- this is the question -- how do you -- as an opponent of winners.
It's say to people who are saying is things -- run again that.
More more morally.
He's wrong and then suggest that if you even like this guy that somehow you're wrong and how do you how do you.
That's a tight -- -- especially in New York where you know there's always this contrary an attitude against the norms anyway.
I think we.
We we avoid the morality of this talk about the issues of lying credibility the dignity of the house and just the -- craziness.
Of what he did.
Or death I think the Republicans.
Should have learned that lesson -- with Clinton.
The issue was perjury obstruction of justice -- not a sexual but the bill -- Yes that's what they emphasize and and that's what our.
