tv   CNN Tonight With Don Lemon  CNN  October 26, 2016 8:00pm-9:01pm PDT

8:00 pm
teachers, firefighters and nurss support prop 51. prop 51 repairs older schools and removes dangerous lead paint and pipes ensuring classrooms are safe for all students. for safe schools vote yes on 51. 13 days to go and donald trump is showing signs of life in the polls. this is "cnn tonight," i'm don lemon. clinton celebrating her birthday in the battleground state of florida today.
8:01 pm
. meanwhile, trump taking a brief break from campaigning to cut the ribbon at his new washington hotel. >> with the notable exception of 1,600 pennsylvania avenue, this is the most coveted piece of real estate in washington, d.c. >> and famous for telling it like it is, loved by millions for refusing to be politically correct is donald trump taking a lesson from archie bunker? i'm going to and all in the family creator norman heleer. mr. mark preston, hillary clinton celebrated her 69th birthday and donald trump cut the ribbon on his new hotel in dc. what are the next 13-day strategy? >> we know they're not going to be fundraising in big events. they're going to be on the campaign trail.
8:02 pm
donald trump took a brief detour, came to washington, d.c., opened up his hotel, and went quickly back to the campaign trail. bottom line they're spending all of time their in the battleground state and those states they think they need for a path to victory. for donald trump, states such as florida, colorado, north carolina. states in order for him to get to 270 he needs to win. >> donald trump needs to expand his base, as you said, that's to win. today he's talking about revitalizing cities. is he talking about minorities? >> we've seen the polls tighten and we're starting to see democrats start to continue to consolidate behind hillary clinton and see that move towards donald trump. the fact of the matter he needs to get more republicans to come out and say they're going to be with him and vote for him on election day. another thing that donald trump
8:03 pm
needs to do though is he needs to appeal to that middle ground. he needs to get those independent voters to come to his side so when he talks about making inner cities better, that's really a play right now, don. you would have to think for those independent voters, who want to look at donald trump and say that he can be a president for all. the fact of the matter is latinos, hispanics, as well as african-americans are going to go overwhelmingly for hillary clinton. >> more than seven million votes already been cast mark. we don't know who they're cast for, but you can tell whether it's good news for hillary clinton or donald trump particularly in those battleground states? >> yeah we can, don. let's just take a quick look at this early absentee voting we've seen from catalyst, which provided us with this information. it's about 7.4 million votes have been cast in 35 states. when the election is in two weeks, quite frankly, the election is right now as we stand. that 4.6 million were cast in
8:04 pm
battleground states. i'll explain in the next demographic, democrats have an advantage in arizona, colorado, north carolina, and nevada, republicans have an edge in florida, ohio, and utah. let me preface that by saying we know they've had a battle in the past, and we know what their demographics is. arizona should be a ruby red state but yet you're seeing democrats have an advantage in this early voting. in the state of florida, while republicans have an advantage over democrats, it is so much slimmer than what they've had in the past, most comparable years, 2008, don, and we're seeing democrats much closer to republicans in the early voting and that is troublesome for the gop. >> that is interesting also. troublesome because republicans need cash. dana bash reported earlier that reince priebus went to trump looking for money for his ads
8:05 pm
without trump's money, can the gop match what democrats in the final campaign? >> i don't think so. and what we've seen from the house in senate candidates they're trying to get their own money at this point or basically they're making pae appeals to t donors. donald trump has had media by and large how he's going to put $100 million in but we've seen a little less than 60 million of his own has gone into the campaign but he hasn't needed it up to this point. as we go into the closing weeks, reince priebus making that appeal was basically telling donald trump you need to blanket the airways. we need to swamp and try to go toe to toe with hillary clinton that. money also could have been used for get-out-the vote efforts. mark mckinnon said this when we were talking about it last hour, the ground game is not the same. democrats have more people in these states who are critical to getting people to the polls and republicans don't have that because the only infrastructure they have was built by the
8:06 pm
republican national committee. there's really no help from donald trump on that end. >> he said closing weeks. closing days really. we're down to 13. >> it's under two weeks. democrats are shifting money to senate races. are they turning the page too soon, do you think? >> this turns to governing, in many way by shifting it to senate candidates, they're putting money into democratic cans and if hillary clinton does win, you know, if she wins in november, she needs to pick up four seats to take control of the senate, but in the senate, the bottom line is you need a lot more than that to try to govern a little bit. the house of representatives looks like it's going to say republican. when we talk about mandates, her disapproval rates ing 52%. i don't know how anybody can go in with the disapproval rating when you start office with more knowledge that the majority of people are on your side.
8:07 pm
it would be really difficult. the first year of whoever wins their presidency is going to be very ugly in d.c. >> mark preston, thank you as always. now i want to break down the newest national polls and what they tell us about hillary clinton's shrinking he'd. john king is at the magic wall, john? >> one new national poll shows hillary clinton's national lead down to three points now. let's not just look at one poll, let's average them out. when you average them into the most recent national polls clinton's lead is shrinking a bit. still six points but that's down from eight, and 41% for donald trump. and some of the new state polls show that stay may be interesting as we head into the stretch. most interesting, florida. 29 electoral votes. donald trump cannot win without it. hillary clinton would like to block trump. a bloomberg poll, a statistical poll. perhaps some momentum for donald trump in the sunshine state.
8:08 pm
he says he thinks we can win florida. a mixed verdict in the small battleground state, but could be important, new hampshire. 46% to 42%, but nbc wall street numbers show hillary clinton with a healthy lead there so we'll keep an eye on hillary clinton, some volatility, in electoral prize. good numbers for the trump campaign, nevada. hillary clinton has been leading of late, but the new nbc "wall street journal" poll shows a dead heat, 43% to 43% in a state that was key to both of obama's big electoral college wins. donald trump appears to have picked up a little bit there. add them up, the national polls, those new state polls, what does it tell you when, we look at the map that matters most, how do you get to 270 electoral votes. our map has clinton winning quite convincingly. if donald trump can win nevada,
8:09 pm
math changes a little bit. if donald trump can hold florida in the next dozen days, he needs. he cannot afford to lose florida. hillary clinton still winning right there. donald trump's in north carolina tonight. it is an absolute must-win for donald trump. hillary clinton wins, it's over. donald trump has to win ohio. let's say for the sake of this argument, he does. donald trump still has problems in the ruby red republican states out west. if he can get them both and bring them home, republican voters come home, 272 to 264, donald trump is saying where can i get six more, can i get them in pennsylvania? new hampshire, plus somewhere else, maybe wisconsin that. tells you even if donald trump is perfect don he still needs more. the hill is still very sleep even though the news is encouraging and if hillary clinton can hold on to harz
8:10 pm
where she arizona where she's ahead. where are we? momentum for donald trump complicates the electoral college chess a little bit. maybe a smaller advantage but still an advantage for hillary clinton. don? >> john king, we appreciate that. he out trumped trump, archie bunker all in the family sitcom, if he were around today would he be voting for trump? i'm going to and normal leer. the microsoft cloud helps us stay connected. the microsoft cloud offers infinite scalability. the microsoft cloud helps our customers get up and running,

8:14 pm
and one new national poll shows a tight race. hillary clinton leading by just three points. if you're a child of the '70s, remember archie bunker from all in the family? the creator of that show and others like maud, the jeffersons and good times, that's mr. norman here, executive producer of america divided on ethics. how you doing? >> don lemon, i couldn't enjoy you more. >> thank you so much. your tv shows always reflected the country. you created all the political characters. is this the archie bunker election, in your language? >> i think one could say it is. i think of donald trump as the middle finger of the american right hand. i think the american people who care for trump are fed up with our leadership. i think they have every right to
8:15 pm
be, and when i say our leadership i mean our corporate -- i don't mean our president. i mean our corporate leadership, our economic leadership, our general leadership. certainly on the right. i think we're weak on the left two. i don't think the american people, for a country that depends on a informed citizenry, i don't think they get what they earn. >> yeah. in fact, you have said, mr. lear, donald trump is way worse than archie bunker. why that comparison? why is trump worse? >> it wasn't a comparison i made. it was a comparison everybody around me was making constantly and i was asked to respond. you know, i don't know where love exists in -- in what i see of donald trump. i knew where it existed in archie bunker, and the american people found it.
8:16 pm
that's why they cared for him, despite how he talked, and you know he wasn't any -- he wasn't a hater. he was somebody who was afraid of progress. that's the way i always saw him. >> yeah. he's a little ignorant but also loveable at the same time. >> well, like fathers can be, and -- loving fathers can be and he certainly loved his daughter and showed that again and again. >> yeah. would he have voted for trump? >> you know, i've thought about that a good deal. i think that would have been a really great episode and i think he would have walked out of the door to go to the voting booth and you would not know exactly but you would -- but you'd have reason to be very unsure. >> knowing i can't say for sure, he might get there and change his mind especially in this day
8:17 pm
in age and if there's woman on the ticket against him, he'd probably think about edith and his daughter. >> all of that would have beenabeen agtated. and edith and gloria. the way that episode would end i would think would be an unsure audience or an audience that believed each of them one way or the other. >> is it amazing to you that all -- those same issues that you covered in all in the family with archie, and mike, you know, one being this sort of progressive liberal mike and his wife, archie's daughter, and then you had, you know, archie being who he is, are you shocked that we're sort of in the same place? >> well, we are -- when i look at the lgbt issue, and see what a giant leap forward we've made there, you have to look at things racially and think, my
8:18 pm
lord, where we have been. how far have we yet to go. that's what the american divided -- my end of american divided was about, you know, looking into the gentrification that was forcing african-americans out of their homes. >> you were executive producer and comment on the docuseries. this features a president of the north carolina naacp, dr. william jay barber who happens to be a guest coming up tonight. this is about money and politics, voter suppression, and vote ar rights and minorities. >> do you get angered or saddened by racism? >> both. we're still wrestling with race
8:19 pm
i shall systemic. hardly a word about voting rights in the time we have less voting rights today on democrat and republican. it's not just the money in toll picks. it's the money and politics combined with voter suppression. kpree extremists cannot win if there's full vote. it's impossible. >> right. >> they can only win by dividing america. >> that was reverend basher with zack galafanakis. tell me about the series and why it's so important to you. >> well, it's important that we -- i talked about an informed citizenry. we need to know, you know, the depth of our problems, and they have to be discussed and what the producers of "america divided" have managed to do is stories on the major issues of our time, that are dividing us as americans. >> hmm. the issues discussed in "america
8:20 pm
divided" couldn't be more timely, we were talking about with "all in the family." what would you like people to take away from this series? >> well, i would like them to understand from the piece at least that i hosted, that gentrification -- i started to say extremely unkind -- it's being in the name of gentrification, it's villainence, where african-american families especially are concerned, and i witnessed that, you know, full-frontally. >> explain that. what do you mean? >> i mean i -- i was with families in crown heights especially in brooklyn. >> right. >> where landlords had caused the rentals to -- their rentals to rise enormously and still wanting them out of those buildings. they were repairing and that's -- word is in quotes. a staircase here, a wall there,
8:21 pm
anything to raise dust and debris and cause great difficulty for the families, all black, living there. >> yeah. we see a lot of that in new york city and different neighborhoods. i've even spoken to spike lee about that, as well. i have to say to you mr. lear, we may be a dwigdivided in our , but we're joined in our add moration fmor miration for you. you can help me sing the audience into break? >> which one? >> ♪ boy the way glen miller played. >> ♪ songs that made the hit parade. guys like us we had it made. those were the days ♪ >> go don ♪ ♪ girls were girls and men weremwereme men, mr. we could use a men like

herbert hoover again. rus out there. a virus that's serious, like hiv, but it hasn't been talked about much. a virus that's been almost forgotten. it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. that's because hep c can hide in your body silently for years, even decades, without symptoms and it's not tested for in routine blood work. if left untreated, hep c can cause liver damage, even liver cancer. but there's important information for us: the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested for hep c. all it takes is a simple one-time blood test. and if you have hep c, it can be cured. be sure to ask your doctor to get tested for hep c. for us it's time to get tested. it's the only way to know for sure.

donald trump laying out his plans to improve the lives of
8:26 pm
african-americans speaking to a mostly white audience in charlotte. here is dr. william barber, president of the north carolina naacp, cedric alexander, author of the new guardians and calvin tucker, pennsylvania council. dr. barber i'm going to start with you. we just heard from norman lear on the issues that deal with voting and minorities. i want to play you what donald trump said in charlotte, north carolina in a speech to address the issues in inner cities. >> today i want to talk about how to grow the african-american middle class and to provide a new deal for black america. that deal is grounded in three promises, safe communities, great education, and high-paying jobs. >> so a new deal for black
8:27 pm
americans. are you encouraged? >> it sounds good, but let's look at the details. he says safe communities, which is to suggest the primary problem is people are not safe, and that we just have rampant violent in the community. he says better schools, but he's against fully funding public education and he's talking about giving vouchers -- giving public money to private schools which mean students will not be able to attend and he says high-paying jobs but he says the minimum wage is already too high. he's again the living wage and 54% of african-americans make less than the living wage. he's also in this campaign is against healthcare and he supported governors who have declined to expand medicaid in the states where six out of ten african-americans live. interestingly enough, the majority of the people being hurt are white people. it has a disproportionet advantage of african-americans. he's also for those who want to stress the vote.
8:28 pm
his words sound new but they're really old words and an old plan. >> mr. tucker do you want to respond? i agree. i moderated a political, business, and religious leaders, and we talked about a significant issues in the african-american community and i had before me, individual that had five gunshot wounds in his body and he talked about violence in the community. those issues are real and i think donald trump has laid out a plan that's new. i mean a new deal i've heard about it today, but it is what he's been talking about over the last couple of months of the campaign and particularly, as he has appeared before groups in michigan and arizona and philadelphia, so i think that he's going to be good as he's laid out his plans and then as a president, implementing those plans for the community at
8:29 pm
large, as well as the african-american and latino community. >> so as a supporter of donald trump, can you explain to me or maybe you can and him why does he frame the issues of african-american issues in the context of the inner city and crime and violence and poverty? >> well, i work in the inner city and i see crime that is consistent committed by aft african-americans on african-americans so he's not frame being something that's not reality. we can deny it all we want, but if you live in the inner cities you see it on a daily basis -- >> most african-americans don't live in inner cities. >> well, say philadelphia, 42.6% of the population are african-americans. 12% are latinos, hispanic, 6% asian. that's 60% of the population. there are african-americans,
8:30 pm
especially if you're talking about 46.2% that. is a super majority of a president. >> i've lived in philadelphia and the majority of african-americans don't live in the inner city of philadelphia that has a very big metropolitan area and a lot of african-american suburbs. the stats show most african-americans don't live in the inner city. >> i respectfully disagree. 46.2% are in the confines of philadelphia county, which is philadelphia city. i'm not counting -- >> that's not a majority -- 4662 is not a majority. >> it is a significant number when you take african-americans, latinos and asians you've got majority population. go ahead, sred sick cedric. >> that was me but i'll come back. >> okay. let's continue talking about this. he's heavily focused on the inner city crime in his speech calling for more police in black communities.
8:31 pm
listen to this. >> i want every poor african-american child to be able to walk down the street in peace and not be scared and not be hurt. the problem is not the presence of police, but the absence of police. we need really a great group of people to keep you safe, to keep us all safe. >> so cedric, let's continue on with this and dig a little bit more. he keeps coming back to crime, gangs, murder, law and order. why is that? >> i don't know what his reasoning is behind that but let me talk about this from a law enforcement perspective, and as an active-duty police administrator. we know we have challenges in african-american communities roo across this country, but does not speak to the majority of african-american communities in this country because the greatest majority are middle class and we have a significant
8:32 pm
in spite of our population, a significant upper middle class number of americans in which country, as well. it appears that mr. trump may not be as well versed or has not been as well coached as he should have been about african-american communities because we all know those challenges are there. i put men and women in the street every day here in dekalb county, georgia. very urban environment, 55 -- 50% of the population is african-american and the greatest majority of that 50% quite frankly are african-americans who are middle class and certainly we have our challenged areas, and in those areas, where mr. trump talks about an absence of police, it's just not about an absence of police. you have to have all the police in the world but you have to have police in those communities that know how to create and have relationships with people who live in those communities, so adding more police to the street
8:33 pm
is just not really the answer in and of itself. what i would encourage mr. trump and any candidate running for office is take a look at that 21st century task force report and look at it with some seriousness about how you begin to build relationships and legitimacy with police and get yourself a much-broader view about after condition american communities because they're not all poor and struggling, and that is just totally untrue and it's the false narratives that's been placed and i believe most people see through it, don. >> and talking about implicit bias, and racial guilt, as well, one of those, rudy giuliani, we'll play it on the other side of the break. can a toothpaste do everything well?
8:34 pm
this clean was like pow! it added this other level of clean to it. 6x cleaning* my teeth are glowing. they are so white. 6x whitening*á i actually really like the 2 steps. step 1, cleans. step 2, whitens. every time i used this together, it felt like leaving the dentist office. crest hd. 6x cleaning*, 6x whiteningá* i would switch to crest hd over what i was using before. crest. healthy, beautiful smiles for life.
8:35 pm
because it knew an ordinary wastissue was near.ar. the fiery tissue left her nose sore and red. so dad slayed the problem with puffs plus lotion, instead. puffs have pillowy softness for dakota's tender nose. with lotion to comfort and soothe when she blows. don't get burned by ordinary tissues. a nose in need deserves puffs, indeed.
8:36 pm
now get puffs plus lotion in the squeezable softpack. woman: how do we protect them from $4 billion in new cuts to california schools? man: vote yes on proposition 55. woman: prop 55 doesn't raise taxes on anyone. man: not on working californians, not small businesses. no one. woman: instead, prop 55 simply maintains the current tax rate on the wealthiest californians. man: so those who can most afford it continue paying their fair share... woman: ...to prevent new education cuts... man: ...and keep improving california's schools. woman: vote yes on prop 55 to help our children thrive.
8:37 pm
back with me, dr. william barber, cedric alexander and calvin tucker. i want you to listen to what rudy giuliani, one of donald trump's main surrogates said on msnbc earlier today. >> this is a guy who has held people, black people, white people. he doesn't see people that way. it's hillary clinton who says to us, we all have implicit bias, who i believe has a problem. she should look in the mirror. if she thinks we all have implicit bias, hillary, i have
8:38 pm
news for you, i don't. maybe you do. i have no racial guilt, not a single bit of it, which is why i'm willing to tell the truth about black crime and what has to be done about it. >> what is he saying here, revere reverend? wh >> i hear this, i hear george wallace in 1968. the real problem is law and order, and the moral issues and the black community. when i hear rudy giuliani, and i hear trump, i hear them playing the play book of kevin phillips when he advised richard nixon. he said all you have to do in american politics is work out who hates who and you have to make the democratic party, the party of black people and he actually said we can win without negro votes, this is what phillips told nixon if we play this law and order game and act as though racism is the problem rather than acknowledging the problem of racism. i don't hear them -- they're talking about a guilt problem. racism is about policy. when donald trump says he's going to repeal healthcare, he's talking about taking three
8:39 pm
million -- healthcare from 20 million americans but three million african-americans, and we know that 2,500 people die from the lack of every 500,000 people who have the lack of access to healthcare. he says poor black people, but there are eight million more poor white people than african-americans, and 95 of the 100 poorest counties in this country are in so-called red states. so what we have here is hypocrisy. when he says he wants to protect black people, but then he wants to promote the proliferation of guns and uphold the policies of the n.r.a., it is so contradictory. this level of republicans who took over the republican party from the dixiecrats, this is not the hooks who used to be president of the naacp, or the ted teddy roosevelt. these are the dixiecrats and they've been running for a long
8:40 pm
time. >> rudy giuliani seems to be equating as the reverend just alluded to, admitting implicit bias with having racial guilt. what are your thoughts on that? >> it tells me he don't understand what implicit bias means, and i've heard this over and over again and i've also heard it from candidate vice president pence, who mentioned the fact they don't have implicit biases. they have normal in all of us in some form or fashion, to have some sense of some unconscious bias against person, places, or things. that's not unusual, but unless you know what it means, and i would encowurage them, they can call me and i'll talk to them from a psychologist perspective what that means, but to not throw these words around, in not understanding the real meaning in the context they're using them certainly speaks to a lack of knowledge and understanding
8:41 pm
on their part. about this whole law and order piece when, any candidate uses "law and order" particularly when you're talking to and about communities of color that has a very, very different meaning, one that is not taken off in times as being a sense of taking care of a community. it goes back to jim crow, it goes back to civil rights. we're going to crack heads and take names when, depending on who used that verbiage and the context they use it in, that's what law and order means, and not only people think it, they also feel it. so you have to be very careful. in this 21st century, and we talk about law and order. law means yes, obeying the law. but order refers to the fact that we as communities have to be able to work with our police, and all of our public safety, to work together in order to keep our communities safe. >> okay. >> that's a very different terminology in terms of which they're using it -- may be using
8:42 pm
it. >> calvin i want to get you in here, because mayor rudy giuliani says he's willing to tell the truth about black crime. what is the truth about black crime? what does he mean? >> well, i think he wants to tell the truth that it exists, and it is part of the equation that has to happen in urban america, and all across the country. if he tells the truth and we're able to marshall forces whether they are the community -- and i agree with the -- the police officer when he talks about putting troops on the ground, police officers on the ground, getting to know the community, befriends the community so police officers are not looked at as threats in the community and that's the way we're going to be able to abate the crime in
8:43 pm
our community, or in the larger community. >> uh-huh. >> don? >> go ahead quickly. i want to get to one other thing. go ahead. >> okay. what first of all, i think we have to talk the truth about crime, not just black-on-black crime, and what really deals with crime and the issue of bias, we had a governor in our state who said we're not bias we don't have implicit bias, but when they're votiir voting poli examined under the court, the court found surgical racism like we haven't seen since jim crow. it's not what you say, it's not what's in your heart, it's what's in your policies and that's where we see racism at work, particular in the policies being imposed by trump and pence and others like them. >> all right. thank you. today, donald trump addressed the black community, but through much of the campaign he seems to talk a very different audience -- to a very different audience. this is in politico by j.m. berger. he took a deep dive into social
8:44 pm
media, and this is what he found. it was the natural cullmination of the wink-wink strategy. trump won the benefit of the doubt from the white nationalist community. i have to ask you this, calvin, because this is what i hear from many african-americans and for many kind people, or smart-thinking people. that's when donald trump loss the african-american vote was that moment where he refused or pretended not to know who david duke was. >> i don't think so. if you look at -- i looked at a recent poll among african-americans, taken between august 19th, and august 25th and showed him having 8% of the african-american support as compared to 2012 with mitt

romney who had six and the same period of time in 2008 with john mccain who had 2% of the vote. i think donald trump is going to do well among african-americans. you know look all candidates make missteps and misspeak about issues, you know, david duke supported bill clinton. i don't think we got up in arms over that -- that point -- you know during his time. so, i believe that we're going to end up with about 12 to 15% of the african-american support across the nation because he's talking about issues that are -- that are needed to be talked about in our community that's going to help us grow our communities because you know the problems exist and we can deny them, as much as possible. we can talk about there is a african-american middle class and i certainly believe and know that there is, but there are systemic problems that have not
8:46 pm
been addressed over a decade, and someone's going to have to be the change agent and i think donald trump is that person. >> i don't think anyone is denying there are problems. i think everyone in the panel isn't denying there are problems. the question is, is donald trump being sincere when he says he will be the greatest champion to african-americans. let me ask you personally, when donald trump did not disavow immediately the cklu klux klan r david duke as a man of color, that didn't bother you? >> no, not necessarily. i've been in the political game for a long time and i've watched democrats and others, the late-senator robert byrd who was an imperial wizard of the klan. so, i've seen these -- this picture before. and i know that in political process, he didn't and david duke to support or endorse him
8:47 pm
and you know this person did. so i don't think that would dissuade me or you know many other rational, logical think hers. >> uh-huh. don, one of the things in this conversation, which is deeply concerning, for instance we have politicians in our state that have not stood with david duke, but when you look at the policies they've enacted, the way in which they -- and donald trump follows them in that policy. cutting public education that would devastate african-american community. >> yeah. >> the healthcare piece, voting rights. you hear me talking about that all the time. so you look at these policies -- and i say to my brother, it is not about denial, but it is about dealing with these issues realistically. i've often heard trump throw off on president obama and say some words and thing it's. >> you have to wrap it up. >> -- okay they haven't looked
8:48 pm
at all the things that have been obstructed. >> just on that one point. >> quickly, please. >> in my city, 49% of young african-americans are dropping out of public education, or public schools, so you know putting more money into the school system, or the public school system, is not the solution. we have to find a solution for our young, you know, leaders. >> and private schools. >> thank you, gentlemen. great conversation. when we come back, why some are saying donald trump speaks more like a woman than a man. i can get over 60 sheets of drywall into my mercedes-benz metris. to get 60 sheets of drywall into my small van, i invented the fold-o-matic 5000. the (new) mercedes-benz metris worker. hauls more. stows more. and, at $25,995, saves more. add a low overall cost of ownership, and the metris worker can handle any business. starting at $25,995. mercedes-benz. vans. born to run.

donald trump is struggling in the polls with women but some say he speaks more like a woman than a man. here to explain is instructor at loyola university. say the feminine speaking style apparent in all three presidential debates. clips. >> under my plan i'll be reducing taxes tremendously from 35% to 15% for companies, small and big businesses. that's going to be a job creator like we haven't seen since ronald reagan. it's going to be a beautiful thing to watch. have respect for me and -- no i

have not. i will tell you i'm going to make our country safe. have borders which we don't have now. people pouring into our country from the middle east and other places. going to make america safe again, great again. >> i will tell you i sat there watching ad after add after false ad all paid for by your friends on wall street that gave so much money because they know you're going to protect them -- >> so how exactly does trump talk like a woman. >> hi don. thanks for having me on. so my research, doesn't look so much at content of what donald trump is saying, it looks at how he is saying it. and the way that i look at feminine and masculine language really comes down to the most seemingly insignificant word
8:54 pm
that you speak every day. things like pronouns, articles, prepositions, these features of language are more stylistic aspects that we don't usually think about when trying to form a thought and communicate with others. we do so pretty much automatically. there are social psychologists and linguists, notably james penny baker at university of texas austin who have found broad patterns in the way men and women tend to structure their language. when i say donald trump speaks more like woman, that's what i mean. >> key is not just words but how trump says it? >> uh-huh. yeah. if you think about something like a pronoun versus an article, you could say my point is that. or you could say the point is
8:55 pm
that. and what these researchers have found empirically is that women tend to say my point is that whereas men tend to say the point is. and these very subtle differences in language can be seen when you run transcripts through a computer and actually count the words that we don't consciously evaluate all the time but that are there and we do automatically, say them. >> you say more feminine speakers come across as likeable and trustworthy, does that apply to donald trump? lot of the campaign is based on inflammatory and offensive rhetoric, misrepresentations, more than any other candidate. >> absolutely. you know, i would say that this is more of a hypothesis that i have evidence for. i did an experiment with about
8:56 pm
600 people. and i found -- so let me explain what i did. i had eight candidate statements, four of which written with feminine style and four written in masculine style. and i had individuals rate them on likability, warmth, competence, and what i found is overwhelmingly participants thought that the candidates with the feminine statements were more likeable, more trustworthy and more honest than the masculine statements. and that was irrespective of the gender of the candidate themselves. so. >> got it. jennifer jones. thank you. >> thank you very much for having me. >> that's it for us. thanks so much for watching. see you back here tomorrow. you know, that reminds me of geico's
