THE RESULT OF BOEING’S PLUNGE >>> DENVER, COLORADO, WILL TEST A PROGRAM TO ALLOW SOME VOTERS CAST THEIR BALLOTS VIA SMARTPHONE APP

HOW ABOUT THAT? OUR NEXT GUEST IS HELPING FUND THIS PILOT PROGRAM IT IS BRADLEY TUSK HE HAS BEEN ON THE SHOW BEFORE, MANY TIMES AIN’T THAT RIGHT, BRADLEY? >> I HAVE FOR SOME REASON YOU KEEP HAVING ME BACK

I KEEP ASSUMING EACH ONE WILL BE THE LAST ONE, THEN YOU GUYS CALL I KEEP ASSUMING EACH ONE WILL BE THE LAST ONE, THEN YOU GUYS CALL AGAIN STUART: IT IS NEVER THE LAST ONE THERE IS AN APP IF I’M IN DENVER, THERE IS AN APP I CAN VOTE ON A MOBIL PHONE >> OKAY YES, WHY, HOW? STUART: WHAT IS MY QUESTION? YOU WILL USE THIS AS AN ENTRY POINT TO GO NATIONWIDE, AREN’T YOU? THAT IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT

>> WHAT I’M TRYING TO DO STUART: ARE YOU WORRIED ABOUT HACKING, THAT KIND OF THING? >> LOOK IF OUR ONLY PROBLEM IN LIFE WAS HACKING YOU WOULD SAY PAPER ONLY BALLOTS MAKE SENSE EXCEPT FOR THOSE REMEMBER BUSH VERSUS GORE IN 2,000, PAPER HAS ITS PROBLEMS WE LIVE IN WORLD TURNOUT IN MOST ELECTIONS IS LESS THAN 20% PRIMARIES 10% GERRYMANDERING, MOST PRIMARY ELECTIONS ARE THE GENERAL

JENNA: ELECTION THAT MEANS THE FAR LEFT AND FAR RIGHT CONTROL THE ELECTIONS GUNS, HEALTH CARE, CONTINUED TO BE SENSIBLE IN THE MIDDLES THOSE VIEWS ARE NEVER HEARD BECAUSE THEY DON’T VOTE IN PRIMARIES THE POLITICIANS WHO ONLY IN MY EXPERIENCE GET ABOUT REELECTED THEY JUST TAKE THE ADVICE FOR PEOPLE THAT VOTE FOR THEM IN THE PRIMARIES YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT MIKE BLOOMBERG, WHY HE IS NOT RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT THIS IS REALLY THE SAME THING, HAVING WORKED WITH MIKE FOR YEARS, RUN HIS MAYORAL CAMPAIGN I KNOW A LOT OF HIS VIEWS LINE UP PRETTY WELL WITH THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE BUT I KNOW HIS VIEWS ARE NOT PARTICULARLY RADICAL

THEY’RE FAIRLY CENTRIST THEY DON’T LINE UP WITH PEOPLE WHO VOTE IN DEMOCRATIC PRIMARIES STUART: THAT IS INTERESTING IF YOU HAD MOBILE PHONE VOTING IN THE IOWA CAUCUSES FOR EXAMPLE, YOU THINK MIKE BLOOMBERG WOULD HAVE A SHOT? >> I DO STUART: BUT WITHOUT THAT, HE DOESN’T? >> I THINK THAT WITHOUT THAT, WHEN TURNOUT IS REALLY LOW, YOU TEND TO GET THE EXTREMES, RIGHT? PEOPLE WHO ARE MOTIVATED ARE ANGRIEST, MOST FIRED UP, WHICH TEND TO BE THE MOST PARTISAN

TOTALLY ON BOTH SIDES STUART: WHEN I FIRST HEARD ABOUT THIS, ELECTION, PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION OR CONGRESSIONAL ELECTION >> ANYTHING STUART: ANYTHING, THAT IS MORE IMPORTANT >> DENVER MUNICIPAL

LET ME GIVE YOU TWO SAD STATS BILL DE BLASIO PHENOMENALLY A MAYOR, WAS ELECTED, WON HIS PRIMARY WITH 300,000 VOTES WHICH IS 4% OF THE CITY’S POPULATION COUPLE WEEKS AGO WE HAD SPECIAL ELECTION FOR PUBLIC ADVOCATE TOTALLY USELESS JOB, CITYWIDE JOB, IF MAYOR LEAVES, PUBLIC ADVOCATE BECOMES MAYOR DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY VOTES THE WINNER GOT IN77,000

LESS THAN 1% OF THE CITY’S POPULATION PICKING A CITYWIDE POSITION DE BLASIO WAS REALLY BAD MAYOR IN THE FIRST TERM, HE GOVERNED FOR THE 300,000 AND DIDN’T MAKE SURE THE OTHER 97% SUFFERED >> HAVING LEARNED SO MUCH HOW BAD POLITICS IS THE NEED TO DO SOMETHING AS WE DISCUSSED BEFORE ON THIS PROGRAM I’M EARLY INVESTOR IN UBER

THAT WORKED PRETTY WELL GAVE ME ABILITY TO CREATE FAMILY FOUNDATION ONE TWO THINGS WE’RE FUNDING WE DID IT IN WEST VIRGINIA LAST YEAR

WE’RE DOING IT IN DENVER THIS SPRING STUART: IF THE SYSTEM WERE ADOPTED YOU WOULD MAKE MONEY OUT OF IT? >> I HAVE NO INTEREST AT ALL IN THE COMPANIES WORKING ON BY THE WAY, MAKES MY INVESTMENT TEAM AND MY FUND I WON’T INVEST IN IT BUT I WON’T STUART: I’M SURE BACK TO MIKE BLOOMBERG FOR A MOMENT

HE IS NOT RUNNING HE SAID HE COULDN’T WIN HE COULDN’T WIN THE DEMOCRAT NOMINATION >> RIGHT STUART: THAT IS REALLY BECAUSE HE HAS GONE SO FAR TO THE LEFT, ISN’T IT? WHETHER YOU HAVE APP VOTING SO FAR TO THE LEFT HE DOESN’T WANT IN

>> YOU HAD MEMBER OF CONGRESS MAKE WILDLY ANTI-SEMITIC CONGRESS THEY COULDN’T EVEN CONDEMN HER BY NAME, RIGHT? YOU HAVE A PARTY RUN AMOK ON THE LEFT, LIKE MANY WOULD SAY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY ON RUN BY TRUMP ON THE RIGHT AS A RESULT A CANDIDATE COMPETITIVE IN THE ELECTION INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE IN THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SECTOR, ALL THE MONEY HE NEEDS TO RUN HIS OWN RACE TO BE INDEPENDENT IS NOT VIABLE STUART: WHAT ABOUT BIDEN? >> BIDEN ON ONE HAND IS A LITTLE MORE VIABLE HE IS CAREER POLITICIAN AND OBAMA’S VICE PRESIDENT

WE MAY LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE BIDEN IS TOO CENTRIST STUART: YOU BELIEVE, I DO CERTAINLY, DEMOCRATS HAVE SHIFTED SO FAR TO THE SOCIALIST LEFT >> THE PEOPLE THAT ACTUALLY VOTE IN THE PRIMARIES, YES DO I THINK THE OVERALL PARTY HAS? NOT AS MUCH BUT WHEN YOU LOOK AT PEOPLE WHO SHOW UP AT CAUCUS, SHOW UP AT THE PRIMARIES SHOW UP AT RALLIES, WATCHING MSNBC AND TWEET OUT WHAT RACHEL MADDOW SAYS, THEY MOVED SO FAR TO THE LEFT CENTRIST CANDIDATES CAN’T COMPETE IN THE PRIMARY

STUART: FIVE YEARS FROM NOW WILL I BE VOTING ON THIS >> I CERTAINLY HOPE SO EVERYONE THAT HAS POWER, IF U EXPLOIT LOW TURNOUTS ON THE RIGHT, TEACHERS UNION ON THE LEFT OR NRA ON THE RIGHT YOU WON’T WANT THIS THIS DISEMPOWERS YOU TO BRING EVERYBODY TO THE SYSTEM I’M NOT NAIVE WHAT I’M UP AGAINST

WHAT I LEARNED WITH UBER AND OTHER THINGS IN TECHNOLOGY, WHEN YOU LET THE GENIE OUT OF THE BOTTLE YOU CAN’T PUT IT BACK IN MY JOB IS TO GET IT OUT OF THE BOTTLE STUART: YOU’RE SUCH A CENTRIST >> PEOPLE SAY I’M PRETTY EXTREME
