So for you thinking about like 20, 20 and how you coming in and type you up. We're so different for young people. First of all, you were kind, the first candidate who really talked about tech and it was also the first candidate who really you didn't seem like a party, loyalist, by any means? Yes, and so, yes, maybe that's about biased opinion. But I think also just seeing yeah, these unenthused Democrats and seems the perfect opportunity for something new to come in something that's exciting. At the end of the day. There's a lot of ties between entertainment and politics unfortunately. And it often feels like right now that people are kind of taking a step back from all the craziness that's happened with the within the 2020 election and that something new and exciting needs to come in. So, how do you see even like with This craziness within the Republican party and who is going to win their? How do you say a third party coming
in and eating Republican is going to again running his Trump or the exciting third party. Which one is it are both kind
of both it just more. So, so the unenthused Democrat voters. There's going to be a lot of attention on the Republican party, like we just discussed, but it's kind of the perfect entry for a third party and how you came in. So strong within the 2020 election. Basically a complete Outsider. How do you see a third party coming in with a strong impact? And honestly, getting a lot of Young voters who we can talk about this too. There's a ton of young independent voters. Well,
so this is the question Jewels, which is so whenever anyone thinks third party what they think of as presidential. Yep, and in some ways that's logical because that's what they are familiar with. Yes, you know, they remember maybe, I don't know who they remember. I mean maybe it's Ralph Nader or Pro if they're a little bit older and that's Because when third-party candidates run locally, you never hear about them and it's almost impossible for them to compete now. So that this is the quandary that we're in which is that you'd like third-party candidates to be able to compete in more environments, but it turns out their greatest opportunity is the presidential or national. Yes, you have enough resources where someone could potentially get a message out. That's not contained within either two parties. Now a lot of Of folks, look at that also say well the stakes are much higher in the National because in this case, let's say if you were to run third party, you might increase the chance of trump winning something along those lines. So I agree with your premise that there's going to be something new that emerges. And the question is, is it within the Republican primary? Yeah, and I think there's a good chance that something new is going to emerge. The Republican primary. Is it enough to upset the Dynamics and defeat Trump TBD? I'm somewhat skeptical because I think the both the prime, the Republican primary electorate in the energy of this time. We'll favored Trump significantly and I have talked to the point about Bill Maher. Asking me questions about this. I have no idea. People are considering running Republicans for present the United States and they're making the same evaluation. I'm describing, which is like, hey is, is there a path to victory in the Republican primary, the folks that I can clearly see running in the Republican? Republican primary or people that frankly are willing to accept low prospects for victory. Yeah, perhaps someone like Chris Christie. He was like, I'm not gonna lose like, let's just do this thing. Let's just do this, you know, likely is something like that going to run totally the, the major question is like, will there be a figure like around a Santa store? Larry Hogan, who was much more political Capital to both compete against Trump, but also more to lose. Yeah, will there be a new younger figure? Like a will heard who we had on the podcast? So that's variable one. Is that will there be new figure from within the Republican primary field? Number two is, will there be a Democratic primary? And if so, will there be someone new that emerges there? And then number three is like maybe they come from outside of the two parties as an independent via the forward party or a Unity ticket. One of the fun things about being. Andrew Yang during this time. Is that, is that to the extent that there's anyone in any of these categories, they're interested in talking to me because they think I can help that they are going to help with young people in particular. Yeah, for sure. They know, I have very, very relevant experience. Probably more relevant than just about anyone else Audrey because like, I did on one of the few people who has been through a version of this process. Yeah, so it's been fun because I talked to them and I get a sense of them. Some of them. I like a And are genuine to me, Patriots are someone who just want to do something positive when I was Coy. When Bill asked, it's like, oh snap. Like how many of these people that I talk to that actually like I'm allowed to divulge.
Yeah. They were really trying to pick at you. Like let us know
the answer is, you know, I like, I guess, you know, I can't divulge any of them because you know, like none of them have made any plans and even to me is not like they tell me like, hey, I'm doing this thing like that. They'll say I'm like, I'm seriously considering social, you know, what are you necessarily? Nothing confirmed 100%. Yeah. Anyway,
