mark: i am mark halperin. and i'm john heilemann. with all due respect to donald trump, we know what type of candy he is not giving out at halloween. ♪ john: on our show tonight, new details emerging about ahmad khan rahami, the man suspected of setting off homemade explosive in new jersey and new york this weekend, injuring 29 people.
5:01 pm
with an fbi assessment, it ended. no other the moment, they obtained the notebook of the bomber, with opinions of some pathetic to jihadist causes. after spending yesterday trading barbs of hillary clinton over how the nation should respond to an internal terrorist threat, donald trump stayed on offense. clinton was off the trail today, held a conference call over national security am a taking aim at trumps temperament, suggesting his rhetoric was helping terrorist recruitment. but both campaigns tried use the incident to attack the other and gain the upper hand. who at this moment, has it? make people to think this is a rerun, but i think we saw what we saw yesterday. both sides can go on offense. show this country needs to re-examine its procedures, but congress is just -- has just as much culpability, and hillary clinton is trying to show that
5:02 pm
donald trump is unqualified. donald trump trying to show hillary clinton is insufficiently aggressive. for another day, they need to keep talking about it, but i don't see anyone gaining advantage. john: i totally agree, i think it is a draw today. i can't imagine the next 48 hours, the very predictable things trump has said about this issue and about hillary clinton. and another array of issues raised here. and the things hillary clinton has said in response, mostly about trump. i cannot imagine those things have done anything to move any movable voters, any available vote in either one of their camps. they're probably doing a little bit to solidify what they already have, but it does not seem to me that either one of them is gaining appreciably in this argument. i find them both to be hot on this issue. it is an emotional issue and an important issue, and they both want to project strength. but my gut feeling is that some people in the country would like to see a more optimistic,
5:03 pm
confident message about winning the war on terror, and not something so negative and hot. is probablyk that right. we talked yesterday about president obama, and critics of them on how he handled the war in terror. but, potent, politically in some respects, to have a calm demeanor and suggest that this is a long battle, one where calmness and rationality may be the right cards to play. topic, there been plenty of recent polls to suggest the presidential race has tightened, but to surveys show good news for hillary clinton. a national poll from nbc news survey monkey has clinton up five points in a two-way, 50% to 45% among her life -- likely voters. a wider gap than her two-point margin in the same poll earlier
5:04 pm
this month. today, hasoll out clinton up 46% to 41% over trump. two polls that are good for clinton, but before those polls, most of the recent ones have not been good for clinton. they show the race tighter, with trump ahead. brooklyn has been dishing out conflicting messages on just how nervous they are, and how nervous their supporters should be. sentnstance, yesterday, out a widely is to be did e-mail, with the subject line "the ways of trump can get 270 electoral votes." they say his path is no longer a pipe dream, but it is clear and real. yesterday was also the day he reportedly circulated a private memo to donors with a much different town, set to curb the race. it makes a trump presidency impossible unless he sweeps
5:05 pm
every battleground state, and listed the numerous ways clinton could with one or two wins, block any path he would have. so which version of his reality is the real one? ofn: let's, there is a lot managing expectations and emotions that go on in both campaigns as you get down to the home stretch. both of them are trying to play the goldilocks game. especially if you're the front runner, the expected winner, as hillary clinton is, you want people to not be complacent, but not be panicked. the right not to hot, not too cold. the memo that was circulated yesterday that shows her with more of a path is closer to reality than the ones earlier where people were talking about a landslide for clinton and did not want fundraising to dry up, and said donald trump could easily win the race. and they said -- the
5:06 pm
answer lies somewhere in between. i think trump has to win florida, north carolina, and ohio before we can talk about a path. if he wins those three there is a couple ways he can do it. he is still the underdog, even if he can win those three. but i think be serious about this. they are not as panic as some of their supporters, but of trump wins north carolina, florida, and ohio, all plausible for him to do, then, brooklyn has to worry. because then there margin of error is greater than trumps, but still a race that they could lose. now david strikes again. washington post reporter has been giving donald trump a headache by investigating his charitable foundation has in his story out, and it is a doozy. shows trump spent a quarter of a million dollars from his nonprofit to settle lawsuits come up reaching agreements with those of suing his private
5:07 pm
business by donating money to charity. it set of using his own money, he reportedly gave them cash that other people i donated to the foundation. the story suggest that the trump foundation may have violated the law, it was a slush fund. how big a deal could this be? it, ii am not minimizing deal where he may have to pay fines and may have broken the law. the most serious thing, he hired accountants and lawyers to deal with this foundation, and he is not an expert on the law of governing foundations. but i question the judgment he has in hiring people. because the lawyers and accountants that allow this, i think should lose their jobs. this is such a bad judgment to do with this story says trump did. should have points deducted from his capacity to offer himself to the country as a great leader and a great manager if he hired people that incompetent. john: if this story is true, and the pam bomb -- pam bondi story,
5:08 pm
he had a slush fund delegation, pay for play or bribery allegation, it suggests to me that the trump foundation, if the allegations are true, is way more corrupt on the face of it, way more corrupt, then any allegation the clinton foundation is. you and i both have issues with the clinton foundation on how it is run as a business. but these two stories, and this one in particular, are gratuitously corrupt. and we should hit hard in the fact that this guy seems to be running a charity to advance both political and business interest, rather than what charities are supposed to do. mark: i do not want to minimize what is alleged in the story, it is horrible, potentially illegal, bad judgment. -- people he did it for the for him, he never should have hired them. but this does not involve the government, he was not a government official.
5:09 pm
so i am not sure corruption is the right word, but it is reckless, and irresponsible what he did. and someone who would hire accountants and lawyers that corrupt or that dishonest or that floppy, you have to question their judgment as a leader. the senator from the peach state, a supporter of joins us next. the early voting ground games in the presidential battlegrounds, a deeper dive. ♪

5:12 pm
long and strong supporter of donald trump. senator, thank you for joining us. >> good to be with you guys. tell us what you think the state of the presidential race is, is donald trump favored underdog, or a tossup? >> i think he is pressed a nerve in the electorate. voter turnout was over 60% this spring in the republican primary. inaw the same thing back 2013 and 2014 in my race in georgia. i think he has touched a nerve that is not going away. i do not believe the national polls right now. either way, there is a lot of noise in the system. and a lot of the intensity behind trump support does not show up in the polls. i think he has a chance to win this thing. i do think it will be close in some battleground states, but the high ground is, the lack of performance in the obama administration, and the fact that hillary clinton is offering no change in direction, and the people want that more than anything else. we were so hoping for change
5:13 pm
eight years ago, but it never happened. mark: you think he is still the underdog in the race? race asrated in my underdog, he is operating every day as if he is. my prediction, he will win big. biggery believe this is than donald trump, bigger than me. this is about the direction of art country. people are realizing the direction we are taking now is failing. this is the weakest economic recovery in over 70 years, the gdp growth on a compound basis in the last eight years is under 1%. people are hurting out there, struggling to get from payday to payday. the way we look at them in washington, is through the whims of the washington establishment. i think that is what is going on. coo of a were a former fortune 500 company, right? trumpis a story about mr. as suggested in his business, when he was facing legal problems, he agreed to make
5:14 pm
charitable donations to make those losses go away -- lawsuits go away, and use funding from the charitable donations. consider that proper behavior on the part of a private businessman? accept not sure i can the question. if those things were true and it goes through a court and he is convicted, obviously that is a problem. but that has not happened yet. we have the same thing on allary's side, she was in government position taking personal advantage of the government. so those are serious allegations. the real issue right now in my mind, is people in america want to see a direction for the country. they want to have hope again. and right now, we are not seeing that from the hillary campaign. honestly, we are talking about economic changes that are increasing taxes, more regulations, smaller military. these are things that really bother people at a time when they see a crisis globally, and .his security
5:15 pm
we are no solutions from the hillary camp. john: i will stay with that point, i know you do not like the debt, it there is not a single nonpartisan analysis of donald trump's tax plan that does not suggest it would add trillions of dollars to the national debt. so make the case for why the trump tax plan is acceptable to you. the firstcited about step. if we get the economy going, that is one of the first four or five things that have to happen. reforms,king about tax releasing this energy boom we have been given. i would love to see us move to certain tax illuminations. but we have to deal with agencies, saving social security and medicare, and arresting the spiraling nature of health-care costs, which i think he will address. as a first step i am very excited about it. mark: senator, whether you have given private advice to that campaign, give us some here
5:16 pm
publicly. what should donald trump do? >> i don't think he is changing anything. i think if he goes in there and take the high ground that he is taking now, to address the obama administration failings, to talk about how clinton will give us a third term, and frankly, talk about the hopes and aspirations of america, and how they have been disappointed. how the liberal progressive movement of the barack obama administration, and now a potential hillary clinton administration have failed the very people they claim to champion. if he does that, it does not matter what the questions are, he will come out on top on monday. mark: give us an example of a question you would like lester holt to ask lincoln in the debate? >> have you put people back to work? he has done that in the real world. he has not had a perfect career, no one does, but he has had to survive in the free enterprise system. he knows had a fight for people,
5:17 pm
and he has said that. i wanted american president that will stand up for american interests and create a level playing field around the world, both from a national security perspective and economic perspective. he will do that, and i think that will become clear. seven weeks from today, hard as that is to believe. you will see the intensity behind the trump campaign grow, the ground game is taking force. , newnk north carolina hampshire, colorado, you will see a lot of activity there. john: one last question for you, senator. you have expressed disappointment that republicans are not unified more fully behind him. what do you think explains that? why is the party not unified, why are there so many critics of the party nominee? blunt, i think it is personal interest over national interest. we have a stark contrast in two different direction offered by clinton and trump.
5:18 pm
i do not understand any republican or conservative thinking that a direction of hillary clinton would be better than the direction of donald trump. it is time to put our big boy pants and big girl pants on and tell the american people a better way. that is what they are hoping for in the next seven weeks. mark: senator purdue, thank you for joining us. get we come back, we will schooled by the national education association president. enjoy recess. ♪

national education association president, lily eskelsen garcia. did i get that right? lily: you got it. john: in the ballpark, right? i know you are a big hillary clinton supporter, but let's start with education. tothe issues that matter school reform, education for our country, why is it that hillary clinton is your choice? and what is wrong with what donald trump has said about the issue? have time to get into the breath of white is wrong donald takes millions and millions of existing dollars from the assisting education budget, which is reading tutors, special education, to get to private schools. not a good idea. take a look at, where she started her career. she started as a young lawyer, saying, i will fight for the rights of poor kids were not receiving special ed services that they deserve. she has fought for special
5:22 pm
education for preschool, affordable college, dreamers, you name it, she has put families and communities and kids in their education access first. john: understanding she has a biography you find appealing, sidehe nea would be on the of the democrats, what is one idea she has put forth education reform that you think is new and important? the things that really appeal to us about hillary clinton, when i was talking to her about her plans, her priorities, what would you , sher public education gave me the best answer i have ever heard from any politician. i asked him that question all the time. she answered with a question. and she said, what are teachers saying? what is getting in their way, what is it that is an obstacle, what do they need to get ahead, can you put together third-grade teachers for me?
5:23 pm
i want to talk to them. i have a lot of ideas, but i do not know if they are good or bad until i talked to the people that actually know the names of those kids. i said, i love you. politician at that level say, i want to talk to a teacher before i would think about pushing some kind of policy, that gave us no child left behind for 14 years -- a lot of well-meaning teachers that never asked the third-grade teacher about the unintended consequences. she did. i know hillary clinton supports you, but are there any issues on which you -- she and the nea disagree? she said you will always
5:24 pm
have a seat at the table. i do not expect that having three teachers in the same room, that three teachers are going to agree. mark: but are there big priorities or issues at the nea that hillary clinton does not agree on? lily: on every single issue, from affordable college, to preschool, to the wraparound services students need, she is with america's kids, she is with our families, she is with us. mark: so the answer is no, she agrees with you on everything? no, there are so many issues, and so many ways to get to the gold. she has agreed with us on every goal that we have talked about for our students. know, pretty negative to say the least about donald trump, and you are very optimistic about america and the american people. reflect on the reality that donald trump will most certainly get already percent of the vote, and substantially more. what is that say about your view of the country now? can --hat is a very good
5:25 pm
question. i think there will be a lot of books written about the trump affect, about people rallying to a message that can be so hateful and so divisive. we are actually seeing that sometimes in our schools now, where kids are bullying other kids because of their ethnicity, a little girl wearing a headscarf. there are studies being done on that, as well. modelslooking at role when we look at candidates. our children are watching, and they are watching this campaign. i think it is frightening some of them. this let me ask you question, given what you have said, and you are a harsh critic of donald trump. a lot of people assume the hispanic vote would be for hillary clinton, she seems to do well with the percentages she is attracting, but there is a widespread sense that there is
5:26 pm
not the same old enthusiasm for her candidacy among younger hispanic voters that was expected. what explains that? wire hispanic voters not more into hillary clinton? people in myat the circle of influence, and it is pretty solid with hillary. i think you will be looking at polls, looking at a lot of things that change over the course, depending on the articles in the newspaper. john: there is not much time donald the election, trump has said a lot of things to hispanics, and she is a champion of traditional things like immigration reform. how can hispanic enthusiasm be problematic? i think this has been such a negative campaign it is turned a lot of people off on politics in general. there are a whole lot of folks

5:31 pm
in dallas and baton rouge, where we were yesterday. those incidents still haunts the communities and they dominated the news for several days. then there was the shooting in dallas at the same time. this one is pretty or effect on the face of the videotape. but given how inured the country has sadly become to these issues, it takes more than one to really break through. in this instance, hillary clinton is addressing it the way she has addressed a lot of these shootings in the past. trump so far seems to be ignoring it. catalyze ay not giant debate even though it should. mark: the national and local press must cover these cases and i believe the consciousness has been raised among the media that these cases must be covered whether there are protester not or some new angle or not. candidates need to address it and i'm glad hillary clinton did. might anddonald trump
5:32 pm
he certainly should but as we get closer to election day, the bar for stories breaking through becomes pretty high. it takes something like a terrorist attack we saw over the weekend for the campaigns to shift to the message they are on and that is just reality. it will become more and more difficult for anything to get attention except the very biggest things until after election day. john: this is a pretty big thing but it has sadly become all too sadly easythey are for people to not focus on to the extent they should. let's talk about a different story. kennedy is saying about a bush who is saying about a clinton. kathleen kennedy post a picture of george h.w. bush with these words yesterday. the president told me he is voting for hillary. a spokesman for bush 41 said the former president's vote will be private. my question for you is if george in factwalker bush is
5:33 pm
voting for hillary clinton, does that and will that matter? mark: it's getting a lot of attention today. i think most people assumed at least some of the bushes were going to vote for her. surprising, though they cannot say on camera, it's not getting quite the attention i thought it would. realizeson campaign pushing republican support may not be in its interest anymore for all sorts of reasons, including it suppresses democratic turnout. during democrat in doozy as an is important and getting endorsement from the bushes may not be the best way to energize the democratic race stop -- democratic base. john: we saw that this summer her say that trump was an abnormal republican and there were -- there was room for normal republicans to come on board. whether it's this bush or maybe
5:34 pm
george w. bush coming to her side by the end of the fall, i now agree with you that if they had that plan, they may now be rethinking that plan because they need more energy in the democratic base than they currently have and this is not the way to get it. mark: and they don't just represent the republican up -- republican party, they represent the establishment. if donald trump has a chance to win, it is because he is the antiestablishment candidate. it's easy for him to go after those votes in ohio and say the clintons and the bushes who have owned the white house are ganging up on me. and we want more of that or do we want to go in a different direction? i'm not sure if either offered to send with hillary clinton, i'm not sure that they would take the opportunity. not only is it true about them being establishment, but they don't even have that much real purchase even with moderate suburban republicans. the bush name, as jeb bush
5:35 pm
proved, the bush name is not worth what it used to be. mark: the first presidential debate is less than one week away. that means the candidates and their campaigns are making final at -- vinyl efforts to set expectations. take donald trump last night on the o'reilly factor. mr. trump: if she treats me with respect, i will treat her with respect. question -- ithat really don't know that. you have to feel it out when you are out there. talk about her delete e-mails when she gets a subpoena from congress. i can talk about her record, which is a disaster. i will be doing that, so we are going to go back and forth and she has a lot of baggage. she has been there a long time. mark: and here is what hillary clinton told jimmy fallon the unpredictably of trump. going which trump are you
5:36 pm
to get? he seems to be changing a bit. he is trying to somehow convince people to forget everything he has said and done. i don't think he's going to get away with that. judge us on who we are, what we have done and what we have stood for and my -- and maya angelou has this great line. and it waser so much fortunate to get to know her. when someone shows you who he is, believe him the first time. both candidates are talking about what they are expecting and what they are planning to do. they're also trying to play down their own expectations. who is winning the predebate skirmishes right now? i don't know. people are so set on what they think. opinion assumes hillary clinton is the better debater, so she will be the favorite. i think among the average voter, a lot of trump supporters think clean hillary
5:37 pm
clinton's clock and vice versa on the dumber -- on the democratic side. i'm not sure any expectation setting will matter because it's such an unusual debate with such huge high profile combatants. mark: i reserve the right to change my mind before monday. but i think one thing that has worked in the clinton's campaign 's favor is to try to get the media to judge this not as a crazy, unorthodox context, but to judge it by normal standards and i think they feel confident that if the debate is judged by the normal standards of the way presidential debate is judged, they have a much better chance of clinton doing well. that doesn't mean the normal standards are that healthy for will bey, but they comfortable if it is judged the normal way, which is about criticism, gas and big moments. they don't want trump to be judged by some trump standard. john: this is a little off-topic
5:38 pm
but i'm interested in your answer. do you think the moderators should do fact checking in real time if donald trump lies on stage, is it there job to step in or should they leave it to hillary clinton? i think they should let the candidate get in if they candidate wants to fact check the other side. upn: i have not really made my mind, but i will get around to that before monday. , early voting is about to begin. we will talk about the ballot math before election day when we come back. ♪

john: as we get closer and
5:41 pm
closer to election day, two of our colleagues at bloomberg politics are counting up those votes in key battleground states in part of our series we're calling battleground 2016. this week, it is all about early voting. it's hard to tell which of you is smarter, more handsome or shorter. tell us about your project this week. what is the deal? guest: we worked to dig into the voter file and look at individual voters and count them up. early voting begins this friday in minnesota. basically six weeks until election day and more than one third of the electorate will vote before election day. it really changes the candidates needs to get to their win number in these battleground states. john: let's develop the stakes are -- i'm sure the clinton campaign has more of an infrastructure to move on early voting, but where is trump on
5:42 pm
this game? trump's reliance on the state party. the ohio republican party knows how to get to its voters in the early vote time. the day you send in a request to the secretary of state, the state party has your name go to a direct mail vendor and you get a direct piece of mail. i think the challenge for trump is they know how to turn out people who will vote for the republican ticket but trump's intowill require eating the democratic base and the republican parties may not know how to mobilize those voters. john: is that true in ohio? difficult.ill be they are concerned down to county offices turning out republican voters in some trump voters we talk about in eastern ohio might be voting democrats the rest of the ticket but voting for him at the top. mark: what are the stakes on
5:43 pm
that site for hillary clinton? guest: we will see the disparities between these two campaigns when it comes to infrastructure. hillary clinton has the larger infrastructure and has staff all over the country. iowa is a key state where we can watch in part because iowa, the amount of early votes there is not the largest, but it is one of the earliest. it starts next week, so we will see hillary clinton try to turn out her more unreliable voters that she needs to win. when you look at the math, republicans really do have a larger base. the region -- the reason democrats when those states is because they're are able to turn out more unreliable voters. whenis who we talk about we talk about the obama coalition. if she can do that, she can win states like iowa, nevada, and other ones, but she will need a head start and democrats have
5:44 pm
been better at turning out early voters and republicans have. north carolina is an north carolina is an incredibly interesting state because as a diverse electorate and changing electorate. obama won it once and romney won it. guest: 50% of north carolinians voted early. the democrats have done a good job of getting african-americans to move up there voting to early voting, which is why the recent court decisions overturning election reform laws are important. hillary clinton's path to victory relies on -- could rely on mobilizing the existing democratic coalition. if she does that during the early vote time, she can know by october whether she has the state in the bag and start moving her persuasion spending to other states. john: another state that you guys looked at was nevada, where i was last week.
5:45 pm
this state has been a pretty safe democratic state for the last two cycles and now polling shows trump ahead. nevada is a big early voting state. it's a smaller window but they have been really good at turning out a lot of voters in that time. 2012 votedrs in early. those are voters who are still on the rules now. the reason that matters is because of donald trump is going to win the states, he will have to turn out her sway double voters. he has less time to do that and as of now, donald trump is not on the air, so hillary is trying to make a play for those persuadable voters. i'm going to ask the dumbest question in the world. i'm not the dumbest person in the world but i'm going to pretend to be someone who doesn't understand this at all. if you are a candidate, why do
5:46 pm
you care whether someone votes early or votes late? guest: there are different ways of approaching this. some campaigns say let's clear out our most reliable voters early so that as time goes on, we can reach into the more difficult parts of the thoserate and mobilize voters. the other side is what we see in iowa where we have let's use the early time to go to people who are not reliable election day voters and let them take advantage of the convenience of voting early. i think what we will see and this is the challenge you see in nevada is that trump's late start on the airwaves and on the ground for mobilization means he's going to have your options as you get closer to election day. but this is one of the great debate -- if you have a month to turn out voters, what sequence do you want them to vote in? john: the notion of let's bank some votes -- these questions

seem like important tactical decisions, what is your bank and where are you putting your shoulder in? have: if you feel like you a good handle on the state, you can divert resources to another state you really need to win. john: you are smart kids. battleground 2016, a weekly series from now until election day. every tuesday, these guys here being really smart and we will play the victory lap animation next week. read all about it on bloomberg coming up, we will hear about the vice president -- interviews with dan quayle and joe lieberman, right after this. you are watching in washington, d.c., you can listen to us on the radio, radio on 99.1 fm. ♪
