tv   Washington Journal  CSPAN  October 14, 2016 1:55am-2:49am EDT

1:55 am
the c-span radio at. next, a look at efforts to get millennial voters to the polls. "washington journal" set down with jason moore, vice president for city engagement with rock the vote. it is 50 minutes. jesse moore is with us to discuss efforts to increase millennial turnout the selection. he served as vice president of civic engagement at rock the vote. remind our viewers what rock the vote is. >> it is a nonprofit organization. we are nonpartisan. our job is what you just said, engage the millennial voters and turned them out. that is everything from building the technology they need to make registering and voting as easy as possible to chasing them down with reminders when it is time to register or vote.
1:56 am
host: what are the biggest barriers holding that young voters? guest: young voters get a bad rap a lot of times when people talk about them being apathetic. the reality is if you look at social media, if you look at even our streets, our communities where people are marching in making their voices heard on issues they care about, young people are really passionate. the biggest obstacle our age old like craft nation. aen was the last time you saw 23-year-old sit down to write a term paper three month in advance? it does not happen that often. does over the last two days, we registered over 200,000 people as the deadlines set it to creep up. that is what our data is showing. young people are tooting and right now. host: if you look at the data on voter turnout, millennials making up 31% of the voting
1:57 am
population, but not a reliable voting block. here is millennial turnout from three years compared to gen xers, silent generation, is or anything to indicate that anything will be different this cycle, or will millennials be the lowest turnout? guest: the youngest generation in each election year will be the toughest want to turn out. the reason is not as much to do with engagement is that voting is a habit you have to build over years. as you become older, it becomes more of what you do. your likelihood to vote raises as you get older. i also say, this is the largest voting block in american history, which is incredible. this is the most diverse voting block. once it starts to flex its muscles, not in the presidential race, but in the local races,
1:58 am
they will start to turn out in bigger numbers. host: jesse moore is with rock the vote. if you're 18 to 35 years old, it is 202-748-8001. if you are 36 years old to 60 years old, the number is 202-748-8001. if you are 60 and older, the number is 202-748-8002. you can start calling now. as you are doing these registration drives on campus am about are you hearing 2016 bringing the voters out? guest: there is no getting around it, the presidential race is eye-catching for a lot of voters of all ages, but young people are just like anybody else, drawn to what is on the news and mr. trump and secretary clinton are drawing a lot of attention. the question, there are a lot of people were supporting child and clinton -- supporting trump and
1:59 am
clinton and those eager to vote against both candidates. what is refreshing to me is hearing directly from young voters that they are really interested in finding more about who their local district attorney is, there may or is, their sheriff, policing. justice and criminal reform is drawing the focus for a lot of young people to know, who is running my neighborhood? who was making decisions on my block? frankly, that is where the decisions we care about come from. electionspresidential are opening interest in other elections? guest: yes, and it is really refreshing and as a country, we should move forward as quickly as we can. it is where we started as a country. politics should be local.
2:00 am
not only are those the issues we care about, but that is where our power is. host: rock the vote, is that how you get people in the door i talking about the presidential race? and then once they are in the door, encourage them to vote another elections as well? guest: it is a mix. there are people who show up and say i am interested in making sure the police in my neighborhood are safe and protected. that lets us know we need to let them know about local races. others want to know about the supreme court and other issues. i used to work in government and i can say most americans think of the presidency when they think of anything, whether it is pothole's in the street or policing our health care. i know from being inside the government, so much of what we change has to be done at the local level.
2:01 am
what lessons did you learn that you are taking to rock the vote? guest: one is you have to make millennials where they are. worse, and i just make the cut as a millennial, so i don't want think young callers to talk down -- so i don't want young callers to think i am talking down to you, i am with you. where theyt places are authentically engaging. we had been doing pop up art galleries were people can express themselves on issues that are important to them. that is what i learned. you have to meet people where they are with voices that they
2:02 am
know and are already paying attention to. these candidates have nasa platforms -- is candidates have massive platforms. that is not always were a 19-year-old is going to look for an authentic experience. they will listen to artists and people who they connect with on an emotional level point -- emotional level first. caller: thanks for taking my call. politicians have stolen every bit of the money that millennials will have for the rest of their lives. we all believe that the government is not corrupt. the government is 100% correct. influencecians try to , especially our college professors. if they know you are republican, they will fail you or they will
2:03 am
manipulate your existence in the class so you do not do as well as you could. my question to you is, what do you believe about the influence of those who are in charge of teaching you, and how that should be altered in some kind of way just as the media should be? the elections are bought and paid for. whoever votes for whoever a vote for won't make any difference at all. thanks for taking my call. host: jesse moore? guest: i would say this and i come from a family of educators. freedom of speech has to be first and foremost. has that in mind encouraging that with their students and building a space that makes it easy for people to talk with each other about their differences. i will also say that it there is
2:04 am
anything that is falling off in our democracy, it is a space for civil discourse on difficult ideas. there is no better place to practice it, to get more acquainted with the practice of civil discourse that in our or highclassrooms school classrooms, or elementary classrooms. how do we inspire more people with a mindset like that to get into teaching, to get into education is a good question. i don't have the answer, but the more we can make our schools a the betterdemocracy, that people are not looking at each other like a different species when they do not agree. host: how do you feel about trigger warnings for topics that come up. ofngs that have gotten a lot attention as these discussions
2:05 am
are happening on college campuses? to admit, but sad in a lot of cases, we are a few steps away from where we need to be for these conversations to be really functional. it can feel really volatile to talk about. the highly political, or i should say the highly politicized issues. we have to keep doing it. campuses on college and in communities, it actually feels like people are looking for the tools and space they need to have a cultural conversation and not feel like you are on one side and i am on another and we are opposing each other. it's a fight. this is what america is, this is what it was built on and we need to create more effective spaces for people to hash these things out. host: on the line between ages 18 to 35 is teresa in tampa, florida. caller: good morning.
2:06 am
thank you for taking my call. host: you are one of those millennials we are talking about. go ahead with your question or comment. caller: i want to comment to jesse, right? guest: right. caller: what you were touching on earlier as far as why you think millennials have not participated, and why you think the older voting groups do participate more. from personal experience, i will i waswith you that i feel a child of the great recession. i lost my parents -- my parents lost is not in 2008. my earliest memories are of the afghanistan war that we are still in today. votee only been able to for 10 years. i voted for obama twice. this primary, especially, i was inspired by bernie sanders. but my eyes were opened as well
2:07 am
to what the political arena is actually like. it was very saddening and frustrating to see how bernie sanders was treated by the democratic party. and and consequently later on, we all found out that it was true, we were not paranoid. now i feel as far as the white males being leaked, -- as far as the wikileaks e-mails being leaked, as the previous caller said, i feel like the government is very corrupt, and the media is helping. i feel like it reports what it is told to report. i feel like i have to go out of my way to get actual facts that are not tainted by partisanship. it is really difficult. even on channels like cnn and fox and msnbc, you know what you are going to get.
2:08 am
if you want to's -- if you want to's hear a positive spin on trump, go to cnn. that is not the way it is supposed to work. going up to the polls is important to me, but i kind of feel like it does not matter. stein,be voting for jill and i take a lot of crap for that, and i really don't understand the lesser evil argument, but i can see how some people are brought into it. i just kind of feel like as a millennial, i have been told for several years that it is my fault i'm in the position i'm in. people my age are lazy. the truth of the matter is, wages are not going up and they have not for a long time. and i feel like financially that i am held down and it affects my
2:09 am
ability to go and participate in rally in protest and to stand up for the things i believe in. things like minimum wage would go up, or if i could make a little bit more money at my job now, i could participate more. it is not that i am a procrastinator, i am not given a choice. thatot given that luxury may be some older, more established people have. host: teresa, thank you for the call from tampa, florida. as you answer, i will show the headline from the wall street journal, the story noting that the e-mails have a potential to revive the anger that sanders supporters felt when it comes to hillary clinton consolidating. thoughts based0 off of what she said. thank you for your comment and i agree with you on a lot of that.
2:10 am
the really coming frustration amongst millennials, including myself, especially the point you made about consuming facts, gathering facts, this is popular foram not talking about in washington, but the news is not always the news. the news is much more partisan than political as it should be. you are absolutely right. in thisickier than ever current phase of our democracy to track down facts that are not slanted. but it is really refreshing to hear you say that you are hunting for that. i find myself trying to do the same. i also find myself trying to encourage everyone from my to turn down mom the news every once in a while when he gets to frustratingly feel like you are getting biased
2:11 am
information. --t i will say is this politicians, for better or worse, respond to who shows up on election day. who shows up to vote. frustratingit is and that is something that is not always what people want to hear, but it is true. who and whoto track doesn't vote. if you are trying to keep your job as a politician, you have to know who is voting and who is not so you can maintain your power. so they are definitely interested on who shows up on election day. my hope is that we are equally motivated as they are. the line fromon the line from 36 to 50 years old. you are on the line with jesse moore from rock the vote. caller: good morning and thank
2:12 am
you or allowing me to express myself. think this will create more. [indiscernible] the media was in full power in america. the media was to be neutral and to present facts. this election shows what america is. clinton, ifk about the democratic party really have , we all know that
2:13 am
bernie sanders was the candidate. republicanhe selected a candidate that was selected by the people. got your point. jesse moore? guest: it is a very common frustration and it is something where, i think more and more, let me put it this way, my first election was 2000, the 2000 election. that was a moment when they really came to terms with the fact that just a few votes can change the election. that was right when the money -- our news cycle really when the 24-hour news cycle got
2:14 am
going. that is when i decided -- that is when i understood the power of media in the power of voters. florida was decided by a sliver of people who did or did not show up that day. i think you're absolutely right. imperative for this next generation of voters to demand something new, to demand something fresh from the media, and to hold them accountable. his point onakes twitter, it is imperative for one's mental health to take a break now and then. [laughter] nicole is in mechanicsburg, maryland on the line from 18 to 35. caller: thank you for all your efforts to get people in my generation to vote. i voted in the primaries. i am a democrat and a college student. i'm a policy student. i have a lot of experience in the classroom learning, and
2:15 am
seeing how a lot of people in my generation are getting disillusioned, especially with the e-mails coming out. me and my friends will sit down and we will have conversations about policy and about how we are viewing the current political system. sorry, i am a terrible public speaker. taking everything with a grain of salt. you see the bias in all forms of media, and it takes a lot of effort and a lot of people don't have the time to sit down and i just what you are seeing and what you are hearing in making an informed decision about who to vote for and if it makes a difference or not. thank you so much for reaching out to young people like me. guest: thank you. thank you and your great -- thank you and you are a great public speaker, i think.
2:16 am
you are exactly right. one thing i tried very hard to do is after watching a debate, or watching a speech from a candidate, turn the tv off and think about it for a while. i think c-span probably gives you more space than most networks to actually think and reflect. always remember they are an option. the opportunity for us to actually turn to the person we are sitting next to a talk about the moment we care most about, moments we just watch unfold and what they mean for us personally or for the country, we are out of that have it. moment in our media culture that is very focused on conception, and we are always being simulated -- always be stimulated. i am barely a millennial, but i
2:17 am
could barely shave in the morning without having a podcast in my ear. the more we could look for silent moments, the better. host: you mentioned earlier that rock the vote is nonpartisan, but you mentioned a big part of your effort is meeting millennials when they are, going to entertainers that are part of millennials'everyday cultural feed and trying to get them involved. how do you do it with the entertainers who are bias toward one candidate or the other? guest: that is a great question because artists, by definition, are outspoken and they want to say what they want to say. that we had to be very clear on the front and to let them know for this event, for this event, for this direct camera recorded, we need you to push voting, we ,eed to push civic engagement but you cannot push a candidate or a party.
2:18 am
it is tricky and they do not always want to do it. host: have you ever had to say no, or have had a celebrity say no? guest: no. there have been some tough --ents once they are all they are already on stage. when somebody is on the stage, it is tough to give them the hook. host: can you give us an example? guest: every once in a while, want them toe will do a song that is really inspirational or will push people to think, and they will do that, but they may follow it up with a song that their publicists want them to be selling right now, which is not always on message. that could get fun. host: jacksonville, north carolina. robert is on the line for those
2:19 am
18 to 35. caller: good morning, and thank you for taking my call. i have a question about the millennials as far as how many people are voting this year as well as how many people are voting for hillary and how many are voting for trump. thatf there is millennials will run for public office particularly to be president in this country, and how do millennials feel about trump in this election? host: i can give you some data before jesse moore johnson. -- jumps in. who016, millennials identify themselves are democrats represented 57%. those identified as republican or lean republican, 36%. jesse moore. guest: that sounds exactly right. whichs important is,
2:20 am
missed, is to what degree millennials are issue voters. that is really true. it is important not to get too caught up in their party affiliation or how they voted in the past or even how their parents about. millennial-- vote. millennials are allergic to partisanship. you will find every single time young voters drifting towards the candidates at the presidential level but also at the local level that are speaking to their issues, things like climate, criminal justice reform, gender equality, and issues like that. for: one other stat fro you. weremillion millennials
2:21 am
voting age in the united states. a number almost equal to the 69.7 million baby boomers in the nation's electorate. let's go to kalya in williamsburg, ohio. good morning. comment was that we saw a lot of millennials supporting bernie sanders. my question is, where do you see them going now? because hillary appears to be everything that is corrupt and part of the established politics. trump appears to be everything that is hateful, bigoted. i don't see them supporting either of those two. guest: i think you will see more millennials gravitate toward secretary clinton as the election gets closer despite some of those challenges, which are completely valid.
2:22 am
despite those challenges, i think a greater number of millennials, and again, this is just me reading the tea leaves, but it appears they are turned off by the tone and some of the stances on issues of mr. trump. he is having a little bit of trouble. host: what in particular? guest: i think immigration is one. also, gender equality. they are both issue areas that are giving him a little bit of trouble with the millennials who not all enemies, but the numbers tend to skew in a more progressive way. twitter usingon entertainers is insulting. white is a movie star's opinion count more than mine? they are still acting. guest: that is 100% true. what is interesting is movie stars and artists are the first
2:23 am
ones to tell us that. we get to things from artists all caps on -- two things from artists all the time. the first is how can i help? the second is i do not want to pass myself off as an expert. how can i help where i am not putting a position to be a policy expert? that is a really refreshing thing to hear because i assumed to be forgetting to this work that most artists and entertainers were much more arrogant than they appeared were much more arrogant than your average person when in fact, they are trying to look for a way to help that will not make them pass themselves off as an expert. use yourr to that is, platform, your visibility to raise an issue to shine light on an issue you care about. just like anybody else in america, if they had a platform
2:24 am
and had something they care about, raise an issue and urge voting. i am very supportive of that. host: about 15 minutes left with jesse moore of rock the vote. rockthevote.com if you want to check them out. anthony has been waiting from sierra vista, arizona, on the line for those 36-60. caller: good morning. please give me about 90 seconds. i am a poetic writer, and i think this sums up what i wrote on october 9 this year, issues and tissues, jeseuus wept. no tissue provided to him. championship has been sexually active with the best looking girl in the school. they both are about to become parents. who do we cry for? how about the unborn child? issues and tissues.
2:25 am
they affect how we see each other. where can we question past actions of a candidate? we switch to issues to mitigate the character flaws. switch to move the poll numbers or redistricting to ensure elected representatives. who has time to cry? yet we cannot bother to look at each other's eyes. afraid we may see our reflections in their eyes. issues and tissues are in short supply. what other issues most voters care about, with states can be influenced to move the tide and voting the balance of power affecting you and i. issues and tissues until the day we die. host: what do you take from that? guest: power of the arts.
2:26 am
i actually enjoyed more people to -- it is another reflective thing to do to channel your thoughts through the arts and not enough people are doing that these days. host: north carolina on the line for those 61 and over. steve, good morning. caller: good morning. i will try to be brief. my main issue is american voters need to understand their president is only one individual supposedly leading this country. our house of representatives and the senate are the ones that actually controls the laws because they have the right to veto the president. we need to quit talking about the president of the united states and go back to actually affect us, the house and the
2:27 am
senate really controls everything that goes on as far as laws and everything the president does. we need to get out of this obama.trump and donald trump has his views. he also has a right to speak. the president always has a right. if we took obama as a person in a seat, we belittle him. we totally disregard his actual power as president, the leader of our country. i am a military veteran. we were taught that the the -- ofactually is our military. the people listen to the political parties and have actually forgotten who runs this
2:28 am
country. host: jesse moore. guest: first, thank you for your service. also, i will be the first to i think if you asked the president, he would be completely honest and let you know when you are in office, in the white house, the first set of lessons is what you do not have power over so i think you are exactly right. having not just the part you want in congress, the house, or the senate, but having onividuals who are focused progress, working together, looking for common ground, having discourse with each other as human beings, and not looking for the political edge and every turn. that is what you want. part of the answer is with our media not just national but also regional, how do we get more coverage of local elections,
2:29 am
congressional elections? how do we get that covered more the regional level? host: another tweet says my home is a meeting place central for becauseals in florida my son and his government are organizers. they moved from bernie to jill. zack from boston, massachusetts, on the line for those between 18 and 35. caller: my thinking is that we should not be encouraging people to vote the sake of voting. i assure rock the vote and other similar organizations that are organizing the so-called millennial vote have a sense of this, but think it is important to reiterate that encouraging people to vote when they are not informed is a mistake. it is like encouraging people to take advantage of the second amendment just because it is available. i think we can all agree we definitely do not want that. when somebody calls in and says
2:30 am
it is so hard to stay informed. it is hard to find unbiased media sources. i just do not buy it. if you can sit around and binge you can find, unbiased sources of information. another thing i want to point out is when you to stop to tending to millennials as the elite voting block. they probably operate the same way young voters did in the 1960's when you have people choosing politicians on the basis of whether or not they support the vietnam war, so let's stop defending the millennials as unique. the only thing they are unique in is that they have this sense of on-demand expectations from audience. ifi can order a car on uber, i can order a pizza to my house, why can i not get my politics on demand? whether that is policy outcomes or whatever the case may be. we need to stop encouraging
2:31 am
people to vote and start encouraging them to ask questions and inform themselves. if you cannot do that, you should not be voting. host: can i ask how old you are? caller: i only seven. -- i am 27. host: have you voted previously? caller: yes, but i also skipped local elections because i did not feel i was informed enough to make choices that are more impactful than my choices at the national level. host: thanks for the call. guest: couple of things. one, you are dead on about the restlessness of our generation, where you are canceling a lyft or uber if it is not there within the two minutes and was promised. it is hard to cast your vote and not to the policy outcome you were so passionate about come to fruition right away. i think you are dead on. the culture is moving in a very fast way, whereas politics are
2:32 am
still a grinding process. government is still a grinding process. there is a friction there. also, to your point about young people getting informed before they vote, also a really important point and something that rock the vote is working very hard to support, the development of new technology that makes it easier for people to get informed. we should get to a place in the , and if you goe to the website or you can be educated on will be on the ballot and go to some links that will help you figure out where they stand on issues you care about, but we should get to a where you aren able to click on the issues you let the appout th, or website know where you are and it will tell you who is on the ballot and where people
2:33 am
stand in a very easy way, but you should start now. go to rockthevote.com and get educated. host: would you want people to vote for voting ssake? guest: that is a really tough question. i want people to get in the habit of voting, but also the need to get in the habit of being informed. you do not want people just playing tic-tac-toe down their ballot, but the same time, it is a habit, it is a democratic imperative. even if there is one candidate or one race you care about, you have to show up. ,ome of those candidates especially those down the ballot when they get really granular in their community with who is voting who is not, they are watching, they are looking to see what age group, what demographic, with neighborhood neighborhoodswhat are voting. host: paul in virginia on the
2:34 am
line for those between 36 and 60, go ahead. caller: yes sir, one thing millennials need to realize before it's too late and they get a job and start paying taxes, always the bernie sanders, hillary clinton addresses, which i consider an american because of the policies, all of the stuff the government is going to give you is not free. when you get a job and you start paying taxes, you will pay for that. paychecktake and get a and your check says you made $500 for a week, but your take-home pay is only $250 and you start whining and crying and wondering, i don't have money for this and that, you need to look in the mirror. is because it is what you wanted. the this government is, the more
2:35 am
money they take from you. the government does not create money other than printing it. you are the ones as the taxpayer that pays the money to the government to give money to the other people, especially people undeserving. host: did you want to add anything? guest: what at least we think of is he has a message for millennials that takes me back to i just wish we were in a space where so many like him can talk directly to millennials in their community more often. host: we have millennials still waiting on the line. lewis is in allen, texas. go ahead. caller: hello. ama millennial -- i am millennial, 22, and i want to s.op in my two cent
2:36 am
we choose a favorite more than a side. that is pretty much what is going on. what they stand for, and all of that is secondary. that is all i have to say. host: you are saying millennials but more for the personality than the party or the policies of a party? yes, that and the policies are secondary. guest: to a degree, that may be true for some voters. i think the popularity of bernie sanders, for instance, i don't think he thought of himself as a theicularly charismatic or type of personality like president obama or others or even bill clinton have had with millennials. not the same kind of connection.
2:37 am
i think he would argue that it was his stance on policy issues that got him his popularity. although i like listening to bernie anytime. host: we have had discussions about celebrity presidents and a culture of celebrity and how it seeps into the president and those campaigning. guest: that is true. i think it is partially why the can feel soight now polarizing. they have been in the public eye. they haven't celebrities for 30 years. these are folks's names who you know. they are celebrities and heironalities -- t celebrities and personalities outpace their issues in the media. host: john in public, maryland, on the line for those 18-35. go ahead. caller: thank you very much. to registerologize it to everyone to vote, but much like a military draft, bringing
2:38 am
in too many uninformed untrained endple, it cannot and there. they have three of four the power of the vote, the weapon with which they have been assigned. hopefully your effort will not just end with registering them to vote. allowing spaces for civic discourse, and i think it is important for that to be civil, but i think it is also important that we provide spaces for discourse itself. go to thees tend to side of civility and do not challenge each other on the reviews. it is important that we not only improve the stability but the discourse itself and make sure people feel safe to challenge each other's views and believes, ask them why did leave that, effective get them to stand for a position and come up with reasons to support it. s ant: informing voters i
2:39 am
creating spaces and technology -- and creating spaces and technology is important to rock the vote. you will see rock the vote more head in a direction not just to get people to vote, but it is also something to get them engaged on issues they care about, everything from art galleries that have discussions ted talksech talks -- and inspire them to learn all their own. you are right about civil discourse. i am very interested in the subject of civil discourse, where civility seems to be on the outskirts of our democracy these days. one thing that to your point that we have to do when we are
2:40 am
creating spaces for people to talk about issues is to make sure, and i include myself and utterly my generation, we have to build spaces where we are preaching to more than the choir with what we are thinking, where we are writing for audiences who do not necessarily agree with us, but in that writing or our speech or in the way we are approaching the issue, we are not doing it in a way to defeat our enemies but in a way to persuade them. we are doing it in a way that will catch their attention and say, wow, i have not quite like that. i don't necessarily agree, but that is a new angle. at that moment is when you start to see pockets of agreement show up and government done well is when those pockets of agreement when you're able to date it and get something done on that issue and try to ignore everything else for just a minute. host: time for one more millennial collar.
2:41 am
eric is in massachusetts. go ahead. caller: hi. i am wondering with the comment you made with the previous massachusetts callers saying rock the vote, you wanted to make an app that which of everyone around us. that sentiment would lead to a mob mentality and people voting uninformed doing that. guest: i am not sure i follow, but i think what i mentioned in creatingas mostly technological platforms that allow people to see where people stand on issues. would needeporting candidates to buy into something like that to say i want anyone using this technology or websites to get informed to get unbiased education on the candidates. i want them to know exactly where i stand on these issues. host: edith in new jersey on the
2:42 am
line for those 36-60. go ahead. caller: thank you for this call. i just wanted to talk about african-american millennials and how they feel about injustice in america as far as the shootings protestsng and the they put forth. i feel as though they are not being heard or not taken seriously. they want african-americans to vote, but they are basically being ignored in this country. they are saying murder is not murder. they are murdering young black men. ok. the only thing they care about is their vote.
2:43 am
i feel as though, why should they vote? what is in it for us? they want our votes, but we cannot get any justice. the case has not even been hurt wouldhis man -- heard this man with a shooting in baton rouge. host: our last two minutes. guest: i hear you. black mannnial myself, i will say that frustration permeates through me every day, but it also inspires me to vote more than it does to make me move away from the election process. not thinking about the presidential candidates, actually. duties, which i was most proud to serve at the white help the president with this 21st century policing task force. wasgoals of that task force
2:44 am
