Keeping up with the news is hard work – Bernick and Schott on politics

Bernick and Schott Logo 1000

Spencer Stokes of Stokes Strategies fills in for Bob this week. He joins Managing Editor Bryan Schott to discuss the major stories in Utah politics this week. 

  • New polling shows most Utahns disapprove of President Trump’s job performance, and just 38% would vote to re-elect Trump in 2020. Does that spell trouble brewing for Trump next year? Could those numbers help Ben McAdams in next year’s re-election bid?
  • Ben McAdams votes against a $15 minimum wage, potentially angering some of his supporters. How big of a political price could he pay for voting as a moderate?
  • Sen. Mike Lee takes fire from Jon Stewart for holding up a vote on reauthorizing the 9/11 victims fund.
  • Rob Bishop says he will make a decision on whether to run for an 11th term in Congress by the end of July.
  • Was the media being fair labeling President Trump’s tweets attacking four Democratic women of color as “racist”?
  • Democratic Thunderdome as the lineups are set for next week’s presidential debates.
  • Plus, beard care tips.
