8:01 pm
mark and i spent the weekend flying around with hillary clinton and donald trump, touching down in battleground states across the country as candidates made their final dash to the finish line of this dizzying come electrifying, exhaustive and sometimes stomach churning race. b t is what brought me to the city of brotherly love where barack obama, michelle obama and jon bon jovi will be there for a rally. mike pence and donald trump are holding a monster rally of their own. all told today was a frenzy of more than two dozen campaign events. ms. clinton: hello pittsburgh. mr. trump: florida is my second home. if hillary wins in north carolina, take it to the bank. mr. trump: in one day, we are going to win the great state of north carolina. >> we will win michigan. >> we have to make sure we leave
8:02 pm
no stone unturned. >> this is the most consequential election of our lifetime. tomorrow is the election but that's just the beginning. we have to heal this country. mr. trump: we are a very divided country. people do not realize we are an , unbelievably divided country. we are going to come together. president obama: it is now down to you. it is out of hillary's hands, michelle's hands, my hands and it is in your hands. >> get your friends out. every single vote counts. john: the final polls of this cycle are now all in. the gist is that it is a tight race as hillary clinton maintains a sliver of the lead. the final bloombergpolitics national poll has her up i three .oints among likely voters that is similar to a flurry of other national polls that have her up about four or five
8:03 pm
points. into threeak down categories, first from clinton leaning states up by six points in virginia, the albuquerque journal has her up by five points in new mexico and fox has her up five in michigan. that is good news for hillary clinton since these are all states and donald trump has been trying to pick off. then there is iowa, a state that has been leaning toward donald trump. the republican nominee up by seven points there. but most of the polls come from tossup states of likely decide the election. north carolina, florida and nevada. clinton is tiger ahead in most of these states. they are virtually tied in the ohio polls one by cbs and the other from the columbus dispatch. we should note there was an emerson poll that has trump leading clinton as much as seven in the buckeye state. that appears to be an outlier.
8:04 pm
what is not factored into these numbers is yesterday surprise by james comey. he informed congress that the bureau had examined those newly discovered e-mails from anthony weiner's laptop who after sending a shockwave through this race two weeks ago, comey is suggesting there is very little to see here. the fbi director standing behind the decision not to recommend charges against the democratic nominee. at today's rally, trump run-up -- brought up that subject as well. mr. trump: of course, the fbi, the director was obviously under tremendous pressure. so they went through 650,000 e-mails in eight days. yeah right. john: so we have these poll numbers and we heard the campaign messages over the weekend. taking all that into account where do you think the race , stands as of now? mark: forget access hollywood,
8:05 pm
forget comey, the polls, let's get down to where we are. hillary clinton is on the doorstep of being elected president. she has a structural advantages. she has run a good campaign, dealt with events like comey she has very well. she is the favorite, the heavy favorite. donald trump has never gotten ahead and is behind these national polls. to say she is the favorite is not to say trump does not have a path. and give them to donald trump he gets to it is the so-called new 269. hampshire scenario. give him that one district in maine and he gets 270. i'm not predicting it. i'm not saying it's going to happen, how can he get every state that is a tossup? the way he gets it is if it turns out that there is a silent majority, there is more ump side.m on the tr if that is true, he is within
8:06 pm
striking distance of what he needs to do. hard, but not impossible. john: thought impossible but i would say so hard as to be close to impossible. not impossible, not impossible. but one of the things we have said for a couple of weeks and probably even longer is the only way for trump to win and pull off that fee that you just outlined is if there is a national wave. this is not going to be a way he cherry picks his way to the vote but it will mean he has to see a movement in concert across the battleground states where he picks up the points he needs to win them all. it is not clear to me where that would come from that seems plausible in my mind and i will say that the clinton campaign, which does an extraordinary amount of data analysis, they are really confident, really confident that they will win this race, not by a lot but they were when it. mark: the only way they will
8:07 pm
lose is if they are unable to take into account how voters feel about her and how voters feel about trump. these other states they are talking about, colorado, michigan, minnesota, wisconsin, new mexico -- maybe, but in the end, north carolina, nevada, those are the states that will be the toughest for him to win and eventually and his hopes. john: if that is the case, we will really have a love science that is going to go out the window the campaigns of hillary . clinton and donald trump could hardly have been more different when to substance and style. the same held true when they offered their final final closing arguments. over the weekend the clinton , campaign released a minute long video is a katy perry song that we are all sick of by now. on monday night, an estimated 20 million viewers of the voice on nbc will hear what is tactically
8:08 pm
a two-minute address to the nation. is not just my name and my opponents name on the ballot -- ballot it is the kind of country we want for our children and grandchildren. is america dark and divisive or hopeful and inclusive? our core values are being tested in the selection but everywhere i go people are refused to be defined by fear and division. an op-ed appeared underneath the byline, a look for common ground. donald trump also wrote an op-ed for usa today in his was titled "we must clean up this corruption." in his final tv ad, he strikes a similar tone. mr. trump: our movement is about replacing the failed and corrupt political establishment with a new government controlled by you, the american people.
8:09 pm
the establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. for those who control the levers of power in washington and the global special interests, they partner with these people that don't have your good in mind. john: between these ads and what you heard on the campaign trail, how well are clinton and trump making their pitch to voters? mark: i think they are both closing again despite the twists and turns, they are closing where exactly we would have expected clinton is talking they would close. clinton is talking about how trump is unacceptable and how she can unify the country and playoff trump's divisive comments to make her unifying figure which a lot for credit to find to be at a minimum humorous, but that is the pitch she is doing. trump is basically saying change, change, change. if you want change in washington, you have to vote for me and try to play off the headline to say, clinton is old washington business as usual. john: we will talk about our
8:10 pm
time on the campaign trail and the impact of a last campaign surprise when they come back right back. ♪
8:11 pm
8:12 pm
♪ john: welcome back. sorry we had to cut out. we had a technical glitch but we are back with you now. there were a little bit more than 48 hours left in the 2016 presidential race. when james comey came out yesterday and said he would stand behind his recommendation not to charge hillary clinton with any wrongdoing. that timing has raised questions about whether that news will make any difference in the opinions of voters for election day.
8:13 pm
mark, let me ask you first, what impact this latebreaking news might have if any and, with the 12 hours left to go, is there any surprise left that could sway voters now? i think the james comey think through the trump campaign off momentarily. trump had a very big challenge and he does not. one thing i have learned based on the way the comey thing played was in the age of twitter in the age of rapid response and polarization it takes a really , big event to capture the news media in a way that clearly helps one candidate or the other. you saw that in the previous mess but i don't think anything in the next 12 hours barring a martian invasion is going to shake up this race. john: i agree with that. from the time he sent his letter to congress 10 days ago more 11
8:14 pm
days ago the ap was reporting 24 , million people voted in time. that is a lot of people who voted in a time when the comey news was driving mark: it will negative headlines. clearly affect the down ballot races. john: that had a real impact. it certainly changed trump's closing message and gave hillary clinton a chance to pivot to a more positive message. kind of talk about unity and to bring in the country together. at this point, you are right, hard to imagine anything without was not cataclysmic, literally and i mean that in the literal sense that would change how the race plays out. mark: when something happens, the partisans on both sides jump aggressively on it and spend it in a way that energizes their supporters. i am in new hampshire and john is in philadelphia, both of the
8:15 pm
latest stop of tracking the presidential nominees over the last 48 hours. i was with donald trump and have to read through my nose. nevada, north carolina, colorado, iowa, michigan, virginia. john has been covering hillary clinton and 40, pennsylvania, ohio and new hampshire. john, inside the clinton bubble over the weekend and into today, what do you see that is not necessarily clearly reported? john: i think the first thing is eriod, a sense of release. -- relief. the clinton campaign says the on bottom post-comey wednesday. their worst day in the polling was wednesday and from that point on they started to see a widening out of her lead to a point that they felt they had some room to breathe and the atmosphere around her, she had a much more casual, a much less
8:16 pm
intense campaign schedule then donald trump did. the people around her seem to be relieved. they seem relieved and confident. mark: so, the trump bubble surprising. we were not on a plane with a donald trump but on a press play. there are no senior aides traveling on the plane in a most no information. i have not spoken on the ground at any of these stocks to anyone in a senior status. we never see trump except the rallies. in this beginning -- ending is a begin. it was trump and a couple of others. there are a few other people traveling with him, but it's giant rallies in big places. they are back on the plane to the next rally, not trying to spin the press, not trying to find out what we are working on. it is unlike a traveling roadshow organism unlike any i've ever covered, even when you would think they would be interested in influencing what the traveling press is writing about.
8:17 pm
no indication there's any interest in that. john: i am curious as he has kept up that pace, there are a couple ways you could read that. one you could see him being kind of playoff multiple fronts and being optimistic and aggressive or is there a certain sense of desperation, trying to find somewhere they may be able to harvest electorate votes that are already not in their sites? mark: saturday, it seems like aggressiveness and they are acting like they are confident and claim their internal data gives them confidence. trump himself was dominated and what happened in reno when there was the protester and he was rushed off the stage. yesterday was dominated by the comey news. when the comey news broke, he seemed a little rattled and a had to readjust. he also shortened up his speech. last night running well behind schedule the last two events in pennsylvania outside of pittsburgh and then in leesburg,
8:18 pm
virginia, much supporter -- order some speeches. he seemed a little bit tired but was still support -- performing and trying to show the level of confidence he needs to convince his supporters that he is rising at the end even though the clinton people are supremely confident. we are going to take a break. when we come back we will talk to a hillary clinton supporter, democrat from california after this. ♪
8:19 pm
8:20 pm
8:21 pm
john: we are back and is still getting ready for election day and talking about all we have seen over the course of the weekend. my question for you, at this moment, what is your sense of how donald trump is going to spend election day? mark: we get back tonight, he comes to new hampshire from pennsylvania, does an event and then goes to michigan. even if he stays on schedule we will be back in new york pretty late. i will expect you look for opportunities to influence voters. he is a restless guy and i expect he's going to find some way to communicate with voters tomorrow whether it is in person or electronically to try to look for every vote because of course voting does not stop until well into the evening tomorrow night including some of the western states that are still competitive. john: i guess donald trump will be more active than hillary clinton.
8:22 pm
i think she is going to be resting up. we are joined by a clinton supporting congressman from california, the chairman of the house democratic caucus. he comes to us from los angeles. congressman, great to see you. what is your sense of optimism on a scale of one to 10? how confident are you hillary clinton is going to win tomorrow? >> i am feeling confident that we are going to get people out to vote, getting a good number of people out to vote. results should be good. you hate to make a judgment call with 24 hours left but i feel pretty good. john: have you -- do you sense, there are some folks who feel the race is tightening to the point where there is genuine or among a lot of democrats about the outcome. others look at this and say, the fundamentals are locked in the , dynamics are not shifting and this is all cable news driven hype to suggest this would become a close race. where are you on that spectrum? think there are a
8:23 pm
number of things going on. the race has tightened but every time i have been on the ground in looking back at northern california, los angeles. i was in arizona, texas and colorado recently. i felt very good and what i would tell you is this, because there's only people coming up to vote that we were not expecting, the non-likely voters, they rarely ask questions in the polls. if they are coming up big numbers, they are going to skew things. my sense of these people are voting for hillary clinton and democrats. that is why have a confidence level because beyond what i see in the polls. congressman, is there a scenario where if donald trump won where you would have trouble accepting the result? folksa whole bunch of
8:24 pm
come out and vote and there is a hidden vote for donald trump that we were not expecting, but every word are getting at the polls in the poll watchers in the workers is this is an election where people had a chance to vote, i would accept certainly what the election results give us, what the american people give us through their phone. unless one tells me there is a whole bunch of inappropriate activity occurring that we could see in there's evidence of, i think we should be ready to accept the results. mark: congressman, let me dig down on that. your candidate is the favorite here. but, people are a little on edge to see if the candidate who ends up perceived as behind at the end of the night decides to challenge the results. what would you say to both campaigns, candidates about what the threshold should be for challenging the resulting individual states? >> what we have typically seen. it has to be a close vote where on election that you probably do not know who won or lost, as we saw in 2000 with the florida vote. i think it has to be something
8:25 pm
that is just uncertain with the results are because it is such a close separation between the two candidates. if you are talking about even a a 1% orge and a half, 2% victory, that is not really close. it is a ton of votes that separates you. it has to be something that is really tight where the election numbers cannot be determined because there are still outstanding absentee ballots or maybe there is a particular problem with some of the ballots. otherwise, we have the system down pretty well where we have a good sense of how americans have voted and unless someone can point to some true fraud and evidence of fraud we always accept the results in this democracy, even when it has not been away that we like. in 2000 i do not like where we ended up. john: congressman, you have been critical of james comey, especially in late -- in wake of the letter to this ago. now he is sent a new letter that is more helpful to hillary clinton. give me a sense of what you
8:26 pm
of james comey's role in the election other it is in upper react. -- inappropriate. injectedor comey himself an election and ways he did not need to, should not have. i think he took the institution of the fbi within and that is unfortunate. luckily as many of us have , expected, he has found there was nothing to the new e-mails that had been discovered and we can move forward, but it is unfortunate because you want to know the premier investigative body in the united dates of america will always be impartial and independent. james comey, i hate to say it because i think he wants to be an upstanding american, injected himself and the fbi in ways that are probably going to harm him and the institution for some time to come. john: congressman, do you think the fact he came back in this late, do you feel as though he
8:27 pm
has rectified the situation by coming out with a statement he made yesterday or do you feel those 10 days or damaging to hillary clinton in a way that you find problematic? >> was 24 hours to go, i'm going to be focused as much as possible on this election and making sure hillary clinton wins, that on the question of james comey coming in at the last moment to, tenders before, again, it was the wrong thing to do. the fbi is an investigative body, not a reporting body. john: thank you very much. season. up next, we will check in with the republican party chief strategist and can medications director sean spicer, right , after this. ♪ wow, x1 has netflix?

director for the republican national committee sean spicer working hand in glove with team .rump back and forth i am going to start with the biggest question. four, come to get to 269 electoral votes he needs to win every state refuse even, ahead or down by 2%. what makes you able to argue with a straight face that donald trump going to win every state he needs to or he is down in every poll average by 2%? >> look at a state like colorado where he won the early vote by 7000. that is unprecedented. i think you are seeing more and more of these states, home like never before. whether it is michigan, colorado, you can see the pattern throughout the country of states that republicans have not carried in decades suddenly opening up to donald trump and that mike pence. that is a phenomenon you have seen. we see it over and over,
8:31 pm
pennsylvania, new hampshire and other states that have traditionally been the bubble states. they are coming home and all of the momentum is with donald trump and mike pence. they are opening up new states. mark: i know you all like to cite national polls that show donald trump ahead or even but the national polls i have looked at and relied on show donald trump down three or four points in the national poll. do you see where donald trump good when tuna 70 goes without the popular vote? >> we are focused on states and i know that, yes, we do cite some of the national. time to time, but what the focus has been in the past two to 70 has gotten wider and brighter every day. to clarify, guess what no, easy, do you see a scenario where donald trump loses the popular vote but wins over 270 electoral votes? >> i have not even thought of
8:32 pm
it. all of the math we're focused on is 270 so we are not looking at the popular vote. mark: take a second and think about it now. is it possible? >> sure. of course it is. ask president gore. it is possible. is focusedink anyone on popular vote versus electoral college. we are focused 100% on multiple paths to 270. john: i want to ask you about director comey in the fbi investigation. i have criticized both the democratic campaign and republican campaign for liking comey when the news was favorable and disliking them in the news was unfavorable. the donald trump campaign had criticism back in july and all of a sudden he became a great stand up couple days ago and now is back to being a part of a rigged system. seriouslyanyone taken
8:33 pm
when donald trump's entire outlook seems to be determined he is politically advantageous for donald trump? >> back in july director comey laid out a very clear case of gross negligence. he went one by one all of the actions hillary clinton had done that sort of seemed to me a clear standard of gross negligence and the conclusion he came to was quite the opposite. justlot of americans, not donald trump, most people look at that and said, i do not understand how you could lay out such a clear case of recklessness and mishandling classified information and then come to a conclusion that does not otherwise suggest what you layout. and then what he said i found more information, we said, that makes sense. happen, we found out her maid was printing of classified information. anthony weiner was sexting
8:34 pm
with underage teenagers had access to these e-mails. we thought, you cannot come to another conclusion that is in that direction. i think it is frankly baffling to see over and over again the case made for gross negligence and then a conclusion coming to that is otherwise. i do not know if it is just donald trump. i think a lot of people look at the case and wonder how you come to a conclusion that does not suggest she had handled miss -- mishandle classified information. john: all right. i guess it does not explain the period where director comey was the greatest thing since sliced bread. >> john, john with all due maybet, what he said was it is not as rigged as i thought it was. maybe he is going to do the right thing. i think he put a lot of hope in people thought he came to an illed tom conclusion in july.
8:35 pm
i think you resurrected some halt, and so when he then suddenly mysteriously went through 650,000 e-mails and came to a real rush conclusion, it baffles people how this is being handled. spent a lot ofu time thinking about the presidential stories but i me ask you about the senate. which one do you consider most endangered? >> i think mark kirk will have a tough time in illinois. we have known that for a long time. i feel really good. on the flipside, i feel really good about nevada and the colorado senate race came out of nowhere and is suddenly on the map. so are there any other ones of your incumbents that you were worried about tonight? >> of course. mark: which ones? >> ron johnson has been a fighter. he came from a state where
8:36 pm
several put in for dead a few months ago. he has fought hard and continues to be an outsider in wisconsin. he has kept a race like that unbelievably competitive. pat toomey has run one of the best campaigns of unit parties in the cycle and i think he is going to be a highlight tomorrow. let me ask you one more question. we have seen in modern american history things like florida where there was a contested challenge but we have seen other losing presidential nominees walk away from contesting states. do you think the rnc, mr. trump will be inclined to look for places to contest or inclined to accept the results? well, i guess what you are asking is, if there is a questionable outcome that is a recount required by law then we are going to exercise every right to make sure everyone's
8:37 pm
vote was counted. i think it would be silly to walk away from that. mark: are you looking to make challenges or are you looking to accept what elected officials say? >> i am looking to win this out right so we do not even have to deal with that but i think if there's a case where it comes down to sort of a rounding or impropriety, of course everyone is going to exercise the rights that have under the law. not go into a race thinking like that. that is not the mentality. you go in knowing you are going to win. we feel confident in the ground game that we have in we are going to win decisively. mark: thank you for making time for us today. sean spicer from trump tower. when we come back we will talk to strategists about the in game right after this. ♪

how will your party reactive donald trump is president-elect emotionally and physically in the moment? >> well, of course we have to wait until all of the votes are casts in county. number one, i will be very surprised if that is the case because of where we are in the structural moment but i think for women voters and women across this country, it is going to be a hard pill to swallow. there will have to be a lot of conversation about how we move forward in our politics. like i said come i think women voters are going to decide this election. i have said this this entire election. i am seeing really, really good energy from women across this country that are excited, honestly excited about voting for hillary clinton. they believe in her, they want to see her as president. they believe in her leadership and i think there's also a lot of pent-up emotion to want to

celebrate a potential breaking of the glass ceiling if we do what we are supposed to do and i cannot tell you how many women i have looked at of all ages who are holding back tears of joy in fear that we might lose this moment but want to embrace it. i think that is something that is getting overlooked. i think there are a lot of folks that are excited about voting for tomorrow. john: jeff, you are a super smart strategist and one that is more data oriented than a most anyone i know in the republican party. one thing we do spend a lot of time on in the political conversation is polls. as we get closer and closer, smarter strategist our focus more and more not on polls but actual vote, the early vote coming through in a lot of states. looking at just early voting, it is kind of a confusing picture. bring some clarity for us on that question. wasn't -- what is a telling us
8:46 pm
about tomorrow? >> it is hard because the early focus on cycle after cycle. i think a couple narratives have taken hold. one is that african-americans are depressed in most parts of the country and the hispanics voting higher. i think that is where you see the map changing in the southern states were more hispanic influence has come on the line for hillary. she felt for a while maybe she could win georgia, arizona, texas. the further north you go where there is less hispanic influence and more african-american influence, those of the states that donald trump feels he has an play. they feel better about north carolina, michigan obviously and ohio and new hampshire. for every point the democrats perform under the 2012 number is a point that they have to make up in the big way with hispanics and it seems like they may be doing that. i think that is what you see the frantic almost like, we have to
