tv New Day Sunday CNN October 23, 2016 4:00am-5:01am PDT
eleventh woman has come forward today with accusations against donald trump. >> he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission. >> every woman lied, total fabrication. the events never happened. >> he's losing and he noesz kno >> we're going to see the best days ahead of us. >> in 17 days everything is going to change.
the cubs are going to the world series! >> it's overwhelming and it's awesome. >> they've been waiting for a long time for it. best fans in baseball. >> slow the moment down and enjoy because it is that special. congratulations all you cubby fans who were up all night. going to talk about that a little bit later. want to wish you a good morning on this sunday morning. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. >> always grateful to have you with us. 16 days before election day, everyone. hillary clinton and donald trump pulling out all the stops to pick up the undecided voters in key battleground states that could make or break this election. take a look at the map that we've got for you here today. hillary clinton in raleigh, north carolina, donald trump in florida. that's a state most analysts say he needs to win. >> both candidates also picking up new endorsements. hillary clinton from ""the new yorker,"" donald trump from "the
las vegas review." his first daze 100 days -- 100 days in office, he has a plan. he took a step back after vowing to sue the women who accused him of sexual impropriety. this comes as an 11th woman accuses him of sexual misconduct. cnn is covering this from all angles. we have jeremy diamond and m.j. lee in philadelphia. let's start with jeremy. >> reporter: good morning, victor and christi. donald trump on saturday stumping here in cleveland, ohio, taking the stage a few hours after another woman has come forward to accuse him of inappropriately touching her without her consent. >> i said i didn't feel right going alone so two other women came with me. he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission. >> reporter: but donald trump in an uncharacteristic fashion actually not addressing the
allegation on stage. instead allowing his campaign to come forward with a statement. this statement reads in part, this story is totally false and ridiculous and it also says that this is, quote, just another attempt by the clinton campaign to defame a candidate. of course, there is no evidence that the clinton campaign had anything to do with any of these allegations against donald trump but donald trump is striking a more combative tone on the campaign trail. just on saturday he was stumping in several battleground states making the case that he has the outsider candidacy needed to make change in washington, to bring change to what he says is a corrupt system essentially. he laid out his plan for his first 100 days in office on saturday morning and -- but, of course, he was still bogged down by these accusations spending several minutes talking about these accusations saying that they are all liars, fabricating these stories, essentially these allegations of sexual assault or sexual misconduct in some cases
and he even said he plans to sue some of these women after the election is over. >> every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. all of these liars will be sued after the election is over. >> reporter: donald trump has said many times that he plans to sue various groups from the media to people who have come out and accused him of various things and none of those lawsuits have come to fruition, but he's going to continue to push this combative state, continuing to press hillary clinton. just on saturday night here in cleveland we saw him going on the attack against hillary clinton accusing her of being another all talk no action politician. >> reporter: good morning, christi and victor. as the math has shifted in hillary clinton's favor, she has shifted to down ballot races. she has taken a lead in important states like florida, like nevada. then in traditionally republican
strong holds like arizona and utah, those states have actually become competitive. now that being said, hillary clinton's telling reporters on saturday that she plans to devote a lot of her energy in the last 17 days of this election campaigning for democrats who are in competitive congressional races. in pennsylvania on saturday she campaigned with kate mcginty who is running against republican senator pat toomey. take a listen to some of what she said. >> now how much more does pat toomey need to hear. if he doesn't have the courage to stand up to donald trump after all of this, then can you be sure he'll stand up for you when it counts against powerful interests? >> reporter: now that's not to say that hillary clinton is taking the pressure off of donald trump. both she and her running mate, tim caikaine are pressing the f that donald trump is unfit to be president. one thing they're both focusing on is donald trump's warning
that he will sue women who have recently made allegations against him. clinton and kaine both saying that this is yet another demonstration that he is unfit to be president. we can also expect hillary clinton to keep capitalizing on the momentum that she feels she has right now by reaching out not only to democratic voters but independents and republicans as well. all of this is a plan for hillary clinton to try to expand the map just days before election day. christi and victor? >> thank you. want to talk about the two major news organizations endorsing the candidates. "the new yorker" saying this, the election of hillary clinton is an event that we would welcome for its historical importance and greet with indescribable relief. then you have "the las vegas review journal" endorsing donald trump with this. mr. trump represents neither the danger his critics claim nor the magic election irmany of his
supporters crave. but he promises to be a source of disruption and discomfort to the privileged, back-scratching political elites. thank you both for taking the time to be with us. want to start with you and your reaction to those endorsements. >> i think this is the first significant newspaper endorsement that donald trump has received from a newspaper owned by a big republican donor and close ally, sheldon allison. it is kind of striking as the contrast to what we have seen, this kind of extraordinary recession of republican leaning newspapers from "the manchester union leader" to "the arizona republic" that have never failed to endorse a republican nominee not endorsing him. the allison endorsement does under score the one asset, the biggest asset donald trump has had in this race, which is despite all of the doubts that voters have expressed about him personally, the one place where he does get good marks is many voters see him more likely to bring change to washington. that was all the asset that was there to him. it will be an interesting
postmortem if he doesn't win, what a campaign would have looked like without some of the unique elements of not only trump personally but the trump agenda. is that -- is trumpism a path forward? may be a big question going on after this ee zbleks patricia, i wanted to ask you about donald trump. let's listen here real quickly to something that he said yesterday as we were waiting for this -- as we were watching his speech in gettysburg. >> every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. total fabrication. the events never happened, never. all of these liars will be sued after the election. >> now this is tauted by his top aids as a speech that will be about policy. he spent the first 15 minutes
talking about accusers. does it benefit him in some way to keep this in the headlines? >> it does not benefit him in any way except to make himself feel better. we all know he said this all the time, if i get hit i'm going to hit back harder. the problem with donald trump is that this election is about much more than him and his own personal grievances. when you go to gettysburg you are raising the stakes and the expectations that you are going to be rising against politics and talking about policy. you can't say four score and seven years ago all these women lied about me. that's not how that speech went. there's been very little coverage about the policy that he did talk about after he kind of got it on the table that all these ladies lied about me and i'm going to sue them all. there was policy that he discussed but because his own words were such a distraction from his message, it's not getting the play that it should have. he steps on his own message that could have been better if he hadn't gone so far off the rails in the first place. >> let's talk about a message
from hillary clinton here real quickly because she talks a lot about the gender pay gap. apparently there could be some problems with her message when you look at the clinton foundation. some of this from wikileaks but some of the numbers here are from the clinton foundation's 990 tax forms from 2014. want to be clear about that. want to show you what they're saying, men averaged in executive positions $291,000. the women in some of those same positions in the executive positions averaging $210,000. that's 72 cents for every dollar male executives earned and it's below the national average of 79 cents. i want to take it back to what clinton said back in april of this past year. >> the failure to ensure equal pay for women also impacts families and the broader
economy. >> the pay skcale clashes with her speech on equal pay. ron, how critical is that? >> that's one of the long lists that arise around a foundation of this magnitude continuing to operate with someone who is still in the political arena. that's what's so unusual here. yeah, it is going to be an embarrassing question. kind of at the margin. donald trump has problems with women. i don't know if this is going to be a big vote mover. donna shalala, president of the administration, former health and human services secretary has said this is not an accurate portr portrayal. it's one of many reasons. it's similar to the questions about him taking donations from countries that do not provide equal rights to women. i think it's one of many reasons why the foundation and continuing anything like its present form if, in fact, she is elected president. >> do you think this will hurt her in the polls? >> i think it will certainly reinforce the perception among
the clintons that there's one set of rules for the clintons and one set of rules for everybody else. anybody who's already listening to that message is probably going to vote against hillary clinton, but i think it's a huge problem. optically it's a problem. i think for a woman who is running a foundation to have this kind of a pay gap when she's way out there on the stump criticizing other companies and private organizations for this same thing, it's more than a perception problem. it's a real problem they have failed to address internally or externally. what are the real numbers? if these are wrong, what's right? they have not told us what these are. >> these numbers reflect an $81,000 pay gap. thank you both. let's talk some baseball. chicago cubs making it to the world series for the first time since 1945. ryan young is live in chicago where fans have been celebrating all night. >> reporter: that's the word for it, victor, celebrating in chicago. if you look at the sign, they've
waited a long time to see that. 2016 national league champions. we'll have the story coming up about excited cub fans. (war drums beating) fight heartburn fast. with tums chewy delights. the mouthwatering soft chew that goes to work in seconds to conquer heartburn fast. tum tum tum tum. chewy delights. only from tums. before it became a medicine, it was an idea. an inspiration. a wild "what-if." so scientists went to work. they examined 87 different protein structures. had 12 years of setbacks and breakthroughs, 4,423 sleepless nights, and countless trips back to the drawing board. at first they were told no, well... maybe, and finally: yes.
effective at a cellular level. improve joint comfort. cosamin. for joint health, it's time to start believing again. the cubs are going to the world series. there they are celebrating. a truly historic moment. chicago cubs advancing to the world series for the first time since 1945. >> it's been even longer since the cubs have actually won a world series. 108 years and now they finally have a chance to break that curse. cnn national correspondent ryan young is live outside wrigley field in chicago. i know that you have been out
there with people celebrating all night. tell us what it's like. >> reporter: yeah, you can feel people. they took the deep breath before the game and they let it all out after the game. you can hear the excitement all across the city. there are people still walking the streets right now excited about the fact that the cubs have won. so many people are talking about this. it's been such a long time. it wasn't color television. the ada wasn't around yet. you have so many people who could not wait for this moment. you talk to two fans who are completely excited about this. >> coming here, i'm happy for him. it's not about me. going for this victory for 50, 60, 70 years. unbelievable to share it with my boy and three other boys at home that are cheering like crazy. along with my wife and friends!
how many years? he asked me three, four years ago why do you stay a cubs fan? i said, it builds character. here's the character right here. >> reporter: look, last year cubs fans were excited because everyone remembers "back to the future "they predicted last year would be the world of the cubbies. this year they're going back to the world series. so much excitement. when we arrived at 4:00 this morning there were still people walking the street in a daze just smiling from ear to ear about the fact the cubs are going back to the world series. one of the things they do, they fly the w. it's a flag that they have. it's all over the city right now. people just can't wait to see these games start. >> all right. we are excited, of course, for chicago. let's not count out the excitement in cleveland. it's been -- >> that's right. >> -- a long time since the indians have won the world series. so we'll celebrate cleveland, too. thanks, ryan. >> so torn. >> i know. >> i'm in trouble. i'm in trouble.
all right. i'm from ohio, my husband's from chicago. there you have it. one of us will be dead by the time this is over. this could be one of the biggest media mergers ever. at&t says it plans to buy time warner. this is not necessarily a done deal, so to speak. we'll explain. and what it could mean for you. make sure the germs they bring home don't stick around. use clorox disinfecting products. because no one kills germs better than clorox. the mistay connected.elps us the microsoft cloud offers infinite scalability. the microsoft cloud helps our customers get up and running, anywhere in the planet. wherever there's a phone, you've got a bank, and we could never do that before. the cloud gave us a single platform to reach across our entire organization. it helps us communicate better. we use the microsoft cloud's advanced analytics tools to track down cybercriminals.
and host of "reliable sources" brian stelter has been working furiously overnight to tell us what it means. can you break it down? >> $85 billion for time warner and time warner includes cnn, the channel you're watching right now, also hbo, warner brothers, tnt, tbs, the cartoon network, a portfolio of tv channels and a big movie studio. you think about hbo, "game of thrones," programs like that, all under the same umbrella as cnn. all of that is being sold to at&t for this $85 billion price tag. now it will take at least a year for government regulators to review the deal, but the corporate logic behind the deal is pretty simple. summed up by at&t this way. the future of video is mobile and the future of mobile is video. at&t is a mobile company. it lights up people's cell phones with wireless data.
time warner is a media company. this deal announced last night under regulatory review in washington. >> okay. so the breakdown is the benefits money for time warner, content for at&t. >> right. >> you mentioned it's going to take some time because there are government regulators that have to approve it. let's talk about what donald trump says he'll do if he's elected. let's listen here. >> as an example of the power structure i'm fighting, at&t is buying time warner and, thus, cnn, a deal we will not approve in my administration because it's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few. >> all righty. this is a big risk, brian. a lot of people might be listening to him. >> reporter: it's a tops si turfy year. democrats are the ones that are more skeptical about big business mergers. in this case i think trump is reacting to negative and critical news coverage that he's
frustrated by. he's been railing against journalists, railing against the media in months. especially in recent weeks as the accusers have come forward. he says they're all liars. i think his comments about this possible deal are really more related to recent coverage of his campaign. but, you know, broadly speaking it's understandable consumers have concerns about media consolidation. in this case at&t is one of the biggest companies on the planet. but the good news or the more positive way to view this, they don't own a news division, content, programming already, they're not taking something and squeezing it all together and causing layoffs or things like that. instead at&t is trying to buy something they don't have at all right now and that is programming. like i said, this will take at least a year for regulators to review. the experts i've spoken to believe this will be a clinton administration and they will approve it with conditions. >> brian stelter, thank you so much for the breakdown. appreciate it. listen, you can catch brian on
"reliable sources" of course at 11:00 a.m. eastern today on cnn. we've got new information this morning on the massive cyber attack that infiltrated devices in homes across the country, maybe yours. we now know tens of millions of i.p. addresses were used to take down popular websites like twitter, netflix, spotify. that's according to a company that directs traffic when you type a url into a browser. hackers used a browser to cause outages. well, experts say donald trump has got to win florida if he wants to win this election. he's making a campaign blitz across that state today. we'll tell you what's happening. plus, the only thing that might be crazier than this presidential election is being the reporter on the road trying to cover it. >> i'm a veteran at this point. you're so used to working crazy

before saying the elections are rigged and vowing to sue the women who accused him of sexual assault and impropriety. this is an 11th woman you see there on your right who is now accusing him of sexual misconduct came forward last night. florida appears to be a must-win for donald trump, and his schedule over the next few days makes that clear. trump will be holding five rallies in five cities over the next three days in pursuit of florida's 29 electoral college votes. the latest quinnipiac poll shows trump trailing hillary clinton by 4 points. that's the latest match-up there. let's talk about this. the chairman of the florida republican party and a state lawmaker. blaise, good morning to you. i wonder, when you look at the latest quinnipiac there, clinton up 4. let's put the battle ground up. it has it in the clinton column. how does donald trump get ahead? how does he turn this around? >> well, the first thing i would
say is with the pew poll, a florida poll said hillary clinton is up 4 but, look, i think that is obviously we would love to be up at this point, but one of the things we have to remember is that when you keep on talking about this shadow trump vote and a bunch of trump voters going to come out and vote for trump that have never voted before. in an election we've seen that dynamic happen in the presidential preference primary. i think it's going to happen again. what the size of that vote is i don't know, but i want to remind everybody that polling in florida has been all over the map. if you remember in 2012, romney was up and then barack obama pulled out a narrow win. so we are expecting this race to be close. >> in order to bring out that shadow vote it's going to take some resources. from our count clinton has more field offices, larger ground game, more paid staffers, the florida dems and the florida
gop. where is the ground game? is that going to grow in the next 16 days? >> reporter: the ground game is in effect right now. yes, hillary clinton has more paid staffers, but we've been on the ground for the better part of two years training an army through our leadership program. one of the things you have to give donald trump credit for is he's going to places that traditionally have not been republican strong holds trying to draw out some of the vote that you may not think. he's going to be in tallahassee this weekend. tallahassee is a traditional democrat strong hold so he's trying to reach out. he's trying to get some of the voters that haven't typically voted republican before and he's been doing a good job with that commitment trying to reach out, not just to republicans. one of the things we have to remember is that independents are breaking donald trump's way. we're seeing a lot of independents coming out. >> blaise, before we let you go.
we're running low on time. i want to get your response to what we heard from president obama when he was in miami gardens this week talking about marco rubio running to keep a seat in the senate who had some very critical things to say about donald trump in the primary but still backing him. let's hear from marco rubio and then president obama. >> donald trump is nothing but a first rate con artist who is trying to carry out the ultimate con. >> this is a guy, as i said earlier, that has literally one of the worst spray tans i've seen. >> it's not just absurd, it's offensive and ridiculous. i think it is a disqualifier as commander in chief. whenever there's a bad poll he gets weird and does these things. he doesn't know what he's talking about. >> marco rubio said this was a dangerous con artist who spent a lifetime, a career sticking it to working people. now that begs the question, since we're in florida, why does marco rubio still plan to vote for donald trump?
>> scathing comments and critique there but, still, marco rubio is going to vote for him. can you reconcile those for the voters? >> reporter: yeah, it's very clear here. marco rubio is voting for donald trump because he knows the importance of a federal government that is accountable to the people and it hasn't been. the donald trump marco rubio also knows that donald trump will appoint conservatives to the supreme court. look, marco rubio has said this, and i think most people have said this, look, all this may not agree with everything that donald trump says. some of his policies. but what we can all agree on is most republicans, we don't agree with anything that hillary clinton is advocating for for this country. that's important. >> marco rubio took that extra step of calling him a con man and saying he was dangerous. he has 16 days, like donald trump, to make his case to the voters. blaise, thank you very much. >> my pleasure. 1972 a book called "the boys
on the bus" introduced us to the gritty and mostly male journalists on the campaign trail. four days later the demands of election coverage may be the same but faces have certainly changed. >> so we would like to introduce you to the girls on the bus, cnn.com series. today we go behind the scenes with ann restin with the rig ors of being a mother and covering this campaign. >> i've never wanted to be anything more than a journalist. as women in this profession, you're so used to working crazy hours, juggling so many different things that i thought motherhood would be easy. and it's not easy. this campaign was kind of different for me because it's so hard to shut out the campaign once it's going on.
even in the early stages of 2016 there was just something happening every minute, especially with donald trump driving the news cycle. >> ten seconds. >> i had to really discipline myself and learn how to shut it off and set it aside because for the first time i had a baby. >> bye, jack. >> who was just a couple of months old when i started covering the campaign. >> quack, quack, quack, quack. >> i definitely had to learn a lot of discipline by taking care of lila and trying to be present with her in the moment and not get distracted by every little thing that happens on the campaign trail. >> look at that! >> figuring out that balance is really tricky. in 2004 when i was covering the campaign i remember being on the bus and listening to this mom call home having this conversation with her kid about gymnastics and what she's eating for dinner and all of that, and it kind of blew my mind in the
moment. i was thinking, oh, that's so hard. must be so hard to be away. campaigns are really tough because they are so all consuming. being on the plane, filing the six paragraph blog item literally as the plane's taking off, but i think one of the most important things in covering a campaign is to get outside the bubble. >> can i have a second to talk about why you're here. >> no, i'm going to let you talk this time. >> going into a state and sinking in and talking to people. >> gosh, so close. >> where are you guys from? >> spending lots of time in parking lots talking to voters. >> have you made up your mind on who you're supporting? >> absolutely. >> what is the biggest issue for you right now? what do you like about hillary clinton? >> she has a lot of strength in her heart. >> this year when it's a crazy campaign and there's a lot of travel and you have a new baby, you kind of end up feeling like
you're doing everything badly. i think that was the hardest thing for me was i didn't realize that you would have this gutt punch every time you take off on the plane. there are times when i say to myself, why am i doing this? i just want to be home with my daughter. but i love my job so there's the crazy tension between those two things, and i think so many mothers feel that and aren't sure what the right decision is. >> but she's doing it so well. you can check out the full web series "girls on the bus" at cnn.com. we'll be right back. all i can g to help prevent another one. a bayer aspirin regimen is one of those steps in helping prevent another stroke. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.
russia is responding to accusations that they're medaling with the u.s. election by hacking e-mails, funneling them to wikileaks possibly to tilt the results in favor of the republican nominee, donald trump. the russian embassy says they're disappointed with the reaction of the u.s. administration and on top of that the unfriendly way it is currently portraying our desire to pursue normal diplomatic work. russian officials are upset that the u.s. state department denied their request to provide poll monitors. they dismissed the request. it's nothing more than a pr stunt saying individual parties are allowed to apply. liz walsh presents global news
from a russian viewpoint. before we talk to you, liz, i want to remind our viewers how you know tore yously put the network live on the air back in 2014. take a look. >> i'm the daughter of a veteran. my partner is a physician at a military base where he sees every day the firsthand accounts of the ultimate crisis that people pay for this country, and that is why personally i cannot be part of network funded by the russian government that whitewashes the actions of putin. i'm proud to be an american and believe in disseminating the truth and that is why after this newscast i am resigning. >> and i understand there was this five second stare down i think of you at the camera before anybody realized what you had done, is that right? >> yeah. i haven't seen that clip in a while. >> so what do you think? >> it brought back some
memories. you know, 2 1/2 years since then and i think it is amazing the rhetoric and the aggressiveness that rt from russia has amplified so much since then. its continued aggression in the ukraine, its intervention into syria, its targeting of hospitals of the u.n. convoy, bombing civilians, the white helmets. and using its media to actually distort what is happening there, which, you know, they've been accused of war crimes. so it's really just the rhetoric and the aggressiveness has really, really gotten a lot higher just in the past couple years. >> right. yeah. it's certainly been part of many conversations. what does your gutt tell you based on where you were because you were there in that media position. based on that, what does your gut tell you about russia's involvement or intent in the u.s. election? >> there the messaging in the russian media has been the same for years, that some key aspects
there of that democracy is a fraud, that you can't trust our institutions, you can't trust the mainstream media. all of these things have been the hallmark of the russian narrative, and the aim there is to create this division and to play on existing grievances. by the way, this is not just happening in the united states over the transatlantic. russia is boosting extremist parties and trying to create divisions within society. so you're seeing this kind of backlash and renewed extremism in the face of immigration. so it's not unique to the united states, but what we are seeing here is that russia now trying to influence our elections. and you have a presidential candidate who is essentially echoing the talking points of russian media. and we know that trump is -- seems to be fond of vladimir putin and is happy to -- i mean, he sounds like a guest on russian media. one of the fringe guests, to be
honest with you. it's the same kind of technique, playing into the fears, division, paranoia. and unfortunately we're seeing these things happen in real time here in our u.s. elections. >> with that said, i want to play real quickly this tense exchange at the final debate. >> from everything i see has no respect for this person. >> well, that's because he'd rather have a puppet as president. >> no puppet. no puppet. >> and it's pretty clear. >> you're the puppet. >> you won't admit. >> no, you're the puppet. >> the russians have engaged in cyber attacks against the united states of america, that you encouraged espionage against our people. >> all right. so, liz, do you think based on what you've seen that donald trump is a puppet in this? do you think russia has any power or influence to affect this election in any way? >> right. i mean, it certainly seems like he is a puppet, whether wittingly or unwittingly. i mean, he hasn't come out and
condemned russia. during the debates when it comes to foreign policy he's essentially echoing the foreign policy what the russian government is saying. when it comes to aleppo, he's saying everybody in eastern aleppo are terrorists. he fails to condemn assad who russia's working with in syria who's massacred his own people and also he's talked about weakening nato and this is key to russian foreign policy. they do not like to see a strong nato and a strong alliance, and trump has also -- has also echoed that. he's talked about also recognizing possibly the illegal annexation of crimea. it's amazing and it's amazing there he was accused of being a puppet. we have u.s. intelligence agencies, we have cyber security officials that have said unequivocally that the forensic evidence points to russia. >> russia. >> he says that.
he won't admit that. he's still going along with what russia's saying, which is it wasn't us. >> all right. >> pretty amazing. you have to ask why. why? >> well, liz, it has been a pleasure to talk to you, get your perspective, especially with your background in all of this. thank you so much for taking the time to be with us. >> thank you. thanks. appreciate it. could hillary clinton turn a red state, maybe several red states blue? take a look at the candidate's final battleground blitz. . . . who says i shouldn't have a soda everyday?
i've heard it all. eat more fiber. flax seeds. yogurt. get moving. keep moving. i know! try laxatives. been there, done that. my chronic constipation keeps coming back. i know. tell me something i don't know. vo: linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children under six and it should not be given to children six to seventeen. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away.
16 days to go now. the finish line in sight for the candidates. both hillary clinton and donald trump along with their surrogates are making every last moment count across the swing states. let's talk about it now with jake tapper. >> good morning. >> let's talk about states. georgia potentially in play for the democrats. utah, michele obama sent to tucson, arizona over the past couple of days. what's the likelihood some of these states will flip from red to blue? >> depends on state. i think some of this is about supporting down ticket democrats more than it is about the clinton campaign itself, hoping, for example, to turn missouri blue. i don't think missouri is going to go blue but it is possible that if they boost democratic turn out that the democratic senate candidate there could win and that could be important.
on the other hand, a state like arizona, which has not voted democratic for a presidential candidate since 1996, that's a possibility i'm told by democrats there. you see the reality of it there by the presence of big time surrogates like michele obama, bernie sanders going there. and the reason that arizona is in play is because normally the frustration democrats have there is they have a tough time getting as many latino vote towers the polls as they want. but donald trump is a one man get out the vote effort for the democrats trying to get latinos to the polls. also arizona has a very significant mormon population and that's normally a reliably republican voting bloc that in this instance is having a lot of difficulty supporting donald trump and that's why utah is up in the air right now with that third-party candidate evan mcmullen on the ballot there. >> you have the campaign managers with you.
>> we do, robby mook from the kin campaign, kellyanne conway from the trump campaign. we'll be putting tough questions to both of them about where they go from here, about things that are troubling, about the campaigns being waged by both democrats and republicans. should be a good show. >> looking forward to it. thanks so much. catch jake tapper on "state of the union" 9:00 a.m. eastern right here on cnn. >
before one of them becomes president. >> the final presidential debate provided plenty of memorial for the show's latest sketch. watch this. >> let's talk immigration. mr. trump why are your immigration policies better than secretary clinton. >> because she wants open borders and that's crazy. people are just pouring in to this country from mexico and a lot of them are very bad ombres. >> bing jobs bingo. i have bad omb res, miss piggy. >> they just take it there. thank you very much for sharing your bhoins. >> "inside politics" with john king starts right now.morning w. >> "inside politics" with john king starts right now.
