10:02 pm
what is he talking about? what's his focus? >> it is really ball hillary clinton. he is really trying from the podium here. his last campaign events to define hillary clinton for voters, on trying to attack her credibility. he is at every turn, bringing up the fbi investigation, bringing up the hacked wikileaks e-mails and it seems quite clear that he remains dedicated to staying on that message. he is not going off script. he is reading off the teleprompter for most of his campaign rallies. clearly the calculation from the trump campaign in the final stretch is to keep the candidate focused on the message. don't have him deviate or say anything controversial like he's been known to in the past that might step on that message. trump opened his rally tonight talking about this newfound restraint. here's what he said. >> going to be nice and cool.
10:03 pm
nice and cool. stay on point, donald, stay on point. no side tracks, donald. nice and easy. nice. i have been watching hillary the last few days, she's totally unhinged. >> you can almost sense donald trump was remembering from up there on that stage tonight, anderson, all of the things his campaign advisers were telling him behind the scenes. don't rock the boat. stay on message. don't do anything to disrupt this in the final days. >> he had events all over florida. he understands it is a must-win state for him. >> they do. he's having four events in 24 hours here many the state of florida. one midday tomorrow. trump admitted this is a must-win state for him. critical to his path to 270. it is his second home he likes to say. and he is making an extra effort to make sure his supporters are
10:04 pm
turning in to voters. he regularly pulls people from and says have you voted and will you bring friends with you and he is dispatching campaign surrogates and family members are out on the campaign trail. i was looking at the schedule of donald jr. in michigan, eric trump in ohio. ivanka in michigan and north carolina and tomorrow melania trump will be giving what campaign advisers say is a warm speech. one of her many -- only a few solo speeches this campaign. we haven't heard from her much since the convention. she will give the speech tomorrow in a suburb of philadelphia. she will talk about her time growing up abroad. and she will hit on what she would do as first lady. anderson? >> thank you very much. from to the state that seems just within reach for democrats until election day looks away. that is arizona which has been
10:05 pm
shifting demographicicly for sometime. and a number of races could pull the race one way or the other. hillary clinton is in tempe. how confident or not confident is the clinton campaign they can turn arizona, which is traditionally red state blue. >> i don't know if they are confident but they see it as a possibility. they are seeing opportunity here. it would be a big deal. arizona has not gone for a democrat since bill clinton back in 1996. that's why hillary clinton has had some of her big-name surrogates including the first lady michelle obama here to try to convince voters. they have been blanketing the battleground states including the president who is in north carolina arguing that his legacy is tied to hillary clinton. that he needs to pass the baton to her. for hillary clinton, she was in las vegas on her way right here to the phoenix area. her argument has been one that's
10:06 pm
pretty negative. it's not that positive one she was hoping for when she had more breathing room in the polls before friday when her e-mail controversy exploded again. anderson? >> from now until election day, does this blitz continue? s. >> certainly she is will be in michigan, hoo ohio on friday. and you will see her do through election day with three major focuses, one women. you have seen an ad highlighting the misonlyist comments. and characterization of basically all african-americans living in inner cities when most
10:07 pm
of them do not. she will be targeting as you will see in arizona hispanic voters. she has a spanish language ad out. she is counting on her running mate tim kaine for this, as well. he will be here thursday, tomorrow, as well. he will give a speech entirely in spanish as she tries to sway voters her way. >> thank you very much. arizona is in flux. so are many other states. we have about 25 million other things to count namely votes 25 million or so ballots cast which speaks volumes. john king is back to break it down for you. we know early voting is more popular. where does it matter most and who has the edge? >> let's start with the popular spart r part. 30% of the ballot voted early four years ago. we may get close to 40% or hit 40% this year. a comfortable part of the
10:08 pm
american political culture and putts a premium on organizing by the campaign and costs a lot to turn the people out. 24 million -- almost 25 million votes cast so far. this is data from early this morning. 24.4 in battleground states, the states we think will decide the next president of the united states. if you look at this number, we had a debate in the last hour, i'm sure we will get in to it again p. this is what concerns democrats at the moment. they say there's reasons for this. african-american turnout down 5.3% from 2012, down from 2012 in georgia and florida. down a little bit in cleveland area in ohio where it is critical. we look at the numbers at the end of the week. if you are in the clinton campaign this is a huge part of your early vote turnout. president obama lost both elections in ballots cast on
10:09 pm
election day. the reason he won two last time early voting, especially among african-americans. with need to keep an eye on this. >> can democrats make up that deficit? you have to look at the end of the week? >> they say you can. they have had events at churches and a lot of places and in north carolina for example there are more open sites. so democrats will they match it exactly the clinton campaign doesn't think she she can. even barack obama didn't match when he had the first election in 2008. they think they can do better among latinos. because in most states population is growing and with trump and history in the community they can get the numbers up. that's modest in north carolina among latinos, pretty modest in georgia. where it could be the difference, a close race, watch florida up 4.5% from 2008. and arizona, not just the
10:10 pm
presidential race, sheriff joe arpaio is running for re-election and democrat and republicans see more intensity because of that race among latinos. >> a new poll shows colorado tied. talk about the significance of that. >> switch maps and come over and look at the electoral map. colorado has been a trending state blue state. if you look at the map here, here's where we are right now. if you take colorado which is a tie, if you take it away -- i have to take this off. there we go. i know what i'm doing. bring this back here. if you take that down, it takes hillary clinton under 270. that's significant right there. number two it gives donald trump more paths when you get there. we have been talking about the blue state that donald trump has to turn. if you turn new hampshire you get four. it is four in the right direction but only four. you want the bigger prizes.
10:11 pm
colorado gets more, this way, boom. colorado is in play. it tells you something is happening in the west. the new poll shows him leading in nevada and arizona. we will see what happens in utah. it also gives donald trump more options. he's running out of time. let's be honest. the hill was this way, and still a steep hill but more options and you can make plausible paths adding colorado to that mix gives you more plausible paths. coming up, kayleigh, where do you want to see donald trump focusing his own presence in the coming days? >> i want to see him where he is now. blue states that need to be return turned red. he has to win florida, ohio, keep north carolina an i think he will. and in many polls he is leading in those states but he has to flip a leaning blue state red that. means michigan, pennsylvania, wisconsin, just one of those he
10:12 pm
needs to flip. what he is doing, going to these states that's good. i think he's taking the right path. >> if you look at the clinton campaign and resources, all of the surrogates going to pennsylvania. they are concerned about that where a week ago they weren't. what we see is donald trump and his campaign ivanka trump in new hampshire tomorrow. donald trump is back in new hampshire on monday. barack obama is in new hampshire on monday. it's going to be battleground state. this could come down to one or two electoral votes. if you factor in a second congressional district it comes down to one state and that could be colorado, would be michigan, could be wisconsin, new hampshire. we see the last time there was a close election like this al gore would have won his home state of tennessee he would have been the president of the united states. >> if -- democrats made so much about heavy hitters, surrogates
10:13 pm
that hillary clinton has. given all of the heavy hitters she has why is the race so close? the democrats seem to be saying early on we have president obama, joe biden, elizabeth warren, michelle obama. is she that bad of a candidate even with all of these surrogates. >> hillary is in the strongest position on this day of the election as barack obama was in the last election. >> you know it? >> i know it. i'm not going with feelings. i'm going with data. the data are clear. hillary is in a strong positioning to win. donald trump has to pull an inside straight to win. the president of the united states is wildly popular chris christie is trying to avoid
10:14 pm
testifying in court. none of them are. he hasn't been able to unify his party. >> yes, he has. >> scott walker. >> that's two. >> ben carson has been on the campaign trail. >> can i mention something? one thing we talked about is how the african-american vote is soft but you show the increase in hispanic turnout. in florida up until this point they have had 139% minute crease in hispanic turnout. 365,000 hispanic voters voted more this year than in 2012. when you add those dynamics in, when you talk about the way this coalition now looks, you have to talk about these variables. when you talk about hillary clinton spending money in wisconsin, a senate race there, or michigan, pennsylvania, new mexico or colorado. what do you want her to do? take money home with her? she has more than she knows what to do with. >> you have to admit, a week ago we were talking about her running up the score.
10:15 pm
that's not the case anymore. it's not the case anymore. >> you and i talked about this. she was teb points up and i said no way. it is a dead heat. anyone with a lick of sense. >> the super pac pull pd out of virginia. >> you know what the amazing part is? only in a campaign when you take donors' money should you say we shouldn't take it home. how about you give it back to the people. >> who does that? >> donald trump uses his own money so he is more judicious. >> you are the super pac guy. >> we will take all of the money and spend it if we don't need it. i think it is disgusting. >> tell donald trump to triple his own rent in his own building. >> i want you to help me because you are smarter at this. gloria is right. a week ago the democrats thought that she could get 538, 360. some republicans were saying
10:16 pm
that because trump was having such a problem post "access hollywood." so we essentially have the romney obama race. with a couple of states and a little different. >> do you agree she is doing better. >> on this day, yes, she is. we love to talk about "access hollywood" tapes and fbi investigations the truth is in most campaigns states go back to their dna. she has a six-point lead in wisconsin not a 12-point lead. president obama won by six, seven points. states tend to go back to their dna. there are a couple of surprises. nevada is a surprise. arizona was a surprise when she was ahead and now back to normal. colorado is a surprise if that one poll is right, it's only one poll and it's a tie. a few surprises but mostly up six in virginia. that's where she is supposed to be. up six or seven in pennsylvania that's where she is supposed to be. in k nk and florida will be two by fours until the final day. >> you are way too rationale.
10:17 pm
>> taking iowa out of the map, it is a place where barack obama. >> and ohio. >> and ohio where barack obama won twice. i think most polls say donald trump will win ohio, idaho. if you take the 206 electoral votes and you add ohio and idaho in. >> you have north carolina. >> you have to take those back. that's the problem. >> if you look at that, winning ohio has been critical for the republican nominee. never done without that and what it looks like with six days to go donald trump will win ohio. >> ohio and iowa everyone conceded that. >> i don't have they have conceded. they are still is campaigning there. >> talking about hillary campaigning in these places she needs to make sure her people turn out. that's normal. i don't think we have to say because she's in a state that means she's losing it.
10:18 pm
she is covering her bases. i think if you look at the averages, which you always say look at the averages she's up. she needs to be up before -- when we go in to game day. she has an operation an he doesn't. >> he has -- that's going to give you one or two points. if we look at barack obama, up one point the day before the election. >> nationally up one. down in ohio one. >> give donald trump his due. he's been able to close the gap and i agree with paul, i don't think people that know what they were talking about ever thought it would be a blowout. everyone is coming home right now. >> a quick break. more ahead and look at whether early voters can change their ballots if they have a change heart 6 r of heart. donald trump is encouraging people to do it. it is possible? we are keeping an eye on events going on right now. we'll be right back.

10:22 pm
encouraging democrats who cast their ballots early to change their votes. here's what he said yesterday in wisconsin. >> this is a message for any democratic voter who have already cast their ballots for hillary clinton and who are having a bad case of buyer's remorse. in other words, you want to change your vote. wisconsin is one of several states where you can change your early ballot if you think you have made a mistake. >> well, that is true. in a handful of states, early voters are allowed to change their minds. whether it happens or happens often is another matter. tom foreman is joining me with the lowdown. >> let's bring in the map. by our count there are seven states where you can get a do-over, and vote again if you want. wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania, new york, connecticut, mississippi and
10:23 pm
minnesota, as well, although their deadline passed earlier this week. generally pretty simple process. show up in person to do this. you have to nullify your previous vote, which means you have to tell an election official that you officially do not want this counted when election day comes and then you have to cast a new ballot. in many cases you have to do that on election day. however, every state has its own quirks and rules. i have to tell you, anderson, it's not easy to find these rules especially for a lot of normal voters out there. >> which brings up the next question, is this something that happens much. >> sure doesn't seem to be that way. for example, in wisconsin, we spoke to one of the clerks there in oshkosh who said that even though their state allows you to change your vote three different times, three times you can decide how you want to vote and
10:24 pm
come to a conclusion it has never happened in that clerk's experience in that state, ever. that they know of in their particular area. if you go over to connecticut, same thing, secretary of state's office got curious about this. they started to call around and found a town clerk and said have you ever seen this? she said in eight years of covering this she said she has seen one voter change the vote. so it is legal. it can be done, but if donald trump is counting on some landslide of votes of people changing to his side history says, anderson, not likely. >> all right. tom foreman, thank you very much. back with the panel. it's interesting -- first of all, i didn't know that was an option in a number of states. but the fact is why would donald trump spend time talking about it if it rarely happens. >> because it can. >> most people who show up to vote early know who they are going to vote for. probably not going to change their vote. the other problem is it is hard
10:25 pm
to get people to the polls one time let alone twice. that's another thing that he faces is a problem with his secret trump voters have to be turned out and people don't generally, who typically vote don't typically show up. >> donald trump was talking about democrats want to change their vote. the worry in the campaign is a fair amount of republicans voted for clinton. suburban women turned off by the "access hollywood" tape or women making accusations against trump. and the clinton campaign got them to turn out early. did trump, how many, who knows, but did he lose republican votes who may say obamacare premiums, what's the number. >> there were so many republicans after the "access hollywood" tape seemed to be, sha chaffetz said i'm out and now back again. >> can we take a step back and talk about where we are that the
10:26 pm
pendulum, whether it is actually in the polls or more importantly in the narrative can swing so aggressively to one side or the other, depending on where the news is. because the fundamentals of these candidates are so poor with regard to how -- what people think of them. it's remarkable that, you know, that donald trump has a horrible few weeks with the "access hollywood" tape and then the issues about women. and then the clinton campaign people are leaking they are going to give some money to the senate races and everyone thinks it is over. and then boom, now you have another flawed candidates with her own issues and the focus is on her and things are looking bad for her. it's remarkable how volatile things are. it is volatile because these candidates are frankly not well liked. >> it's amazing when the focus is on one of the candidates it's not good for them.
10:27 pm
>> it doesn't do well for either one. >> the most schizophrenic race because of dana's point which is these candidates are so disliked, both of them so people flip back and forth, which do i like more today or can i deal with more today or can i think of as president more today. what donald trump is doing is trying, and who can blame him for trying, i'm not sure it will work in reality, but reminding people who voted early they may have made mistakes so don't you do that. it is a way to remind people. >> because of the bouncing balls and flashing lights and a lot to talk about. it is dramatic and important. some of it. the character questions that have been about the candidates more than policy. this is not a tax spending or military defense, strong america election, but the two characters of the candidates which is why you go to the fundamentals.
10:28 pm
if they are bouncing around look at the model. >> i couldn't agree how extraordinary the volatility is in the election. you are correct. i think that's what magnifies what happened on friday. i think momentum started to trend in donald trump's direction. friday we find out about this reopened investigation, whatever you want to call it in to hillary clinton's e-mails. monday we find out about the white collar department investigation in though clinton foundation that has a lot of tentacles. on top of that now for the first time in the race more republicans support donald trump than democrats supporting clinton. that has not happened before in this race. >> where are you seeing that? >> abc poll. >> oh, the abc poll. >> the abc poll you were touting last week. >> not only that but the enthusiasm is in donald trump's
10:29 pm
direction. that is in abc poll. democrats touted it last week when clinton was ahead. >> look at them all together. but a simple question, when the fbi information came out and we got the "access hollywood" tapes. we were coming off the 13 oar 11 women accusing donald trump of sexual assault, the taxes. all of that baked in, e-mails with hillary clinton, we have to bury that phrase, gloria borger, baked in to the cake. how many new voters out there? we are at a point where as a candidate -- i just know this from running a few times before, once statewide. as a candidate when you are this close to the election date, you are not going to get new voters. you are not convincing people to vote for you. >> it is enthusiasm. >> you are going to get your voters to the poll. that's the poll at this point. with are 11 days out. the goal is not to convince new voters but get your voters to the poll. >> you have to make your closing
10:30 pm
argument to the american people why you need to be the next president of the united states and what we saw in this clip is hillary clinton is not going high. she says when donald trump goes low we go high. she is going after him because she knows the race is different than a week ago. and what we see is donald trump talking about hillary clinton as well, fbi investigation, wikileaks, clinton inc., all of those things they don't want to -- obamacare premiums. this. >> they are both going low. >> right. >> at the end of the day they are going to go and say who's disliked more than the other? if you think that honest and trustworthy is a number one factor hillary clinton is in trouble and the experience issue hillary clinton will do well. >> you like a low. >> when they go low, we go lower. >> beware of false equivalency. hillary clinton is the least trusted major party nominee except for donald trump an ten
10:31 pm
points better on the negative. it is awful objectively. but the greatest political strategy is ten points less hated than trump. >> we'll be right back. new bikes aren't selling guys... what are we gonna do? how about we pump more into promotions? ♪ nah. what else? what if we hire more sales reps? ♪ nah. what else? what if we digitize the whole supply chain? so people can customize their bike before they buy it. that worked better than expected. i'll dial it back. yeah, dial it back. just a little. live business, powered by sap. when you run live, you run simple. whmy doctor.houldn't hamy dentist.veryday? definitely my wife. wait, i know what i want.

trump has pretty much stuck to the script in recent days. the question is if his
10:35 pm
supporters in the sunshine state appreciate that. gary tuchman spoke to fans in orlando. >> lock her up. support jail time for hillary. >> reporter: the items for sale and the items some in orlando are wearing are a reminder of some of the things that donald trump said or eluded to during this campaign. as election day approaches, trump appears to be sticking to the script more often. do you feel it is a good thing that donald trump has gotten more diplomatic, more disciplined? >> i do. short answer. >> reporter: a longer answer. >> he is getting more refined. >> reporter: do you like seeing him refined. >> i like seeing him more refined like he is now. without teleprompters he was too much. >> reporter: so you think it is good he was mellower. >> i think it is helping him. bringing in voters. >> reporter: meet brian manning who wore this t-shirt in honor
10:36 pm
of trump. >> what donald trump says is the truth. do yo think that would hurt him in his bid. >> wouldn't hurt him. >> caller: you would. >> reporter: you would like to see that. >> i would like to see that. >> they like the fact that donald trump says what's on his mind. critics be dammed. >> i think he should speak what he feels. i like the aggressive part of him and comes down to freedom of speech. everybody has it, even him as a person. >> reporter: many say his free-wheeling style emboldened them. these women say they would cheer if trump read the questions. it says trump that [ bleep ]. >> are you proud of wearing that. >> yes. >> she is corrupt.
10:37 pm
>> not person in the line has had an issue. do we hear anything? >> no. >> and then there are some people who say trump has always been disciplined and on message and hillary clinton hasn't been. >> all she does is criticize everybody. she is nasty. she's not nice. she hates people pchl we are deplorable. we're in a basket. >> reporter: however almost all of the trump supporters say there have been stretches where he has been off message but a prevalent belief that a president trump would be in his way be presidential. >> he will be diplomatic, assertive and make america great again. >> gary is joining me now. do they think he would be off the cuff in the white house if he won the presidency? >> not only are they thinking it, they are counting on it. many of the people at this rally believe that if he became button
10:38 pm
downed and made it to the oval office he would be similar to the other men and women who he has battle for the nom nagts and presidency for the last 18 months glchlt. >> thank you very much. back with the panel. you have some reporting on this. >> i'm working on a story for this for tomorrow morning for to that exact point, i was talking to a source, i talked to several but one source close to donald trump spoke with about this recalled a conversation they had with conversation they had with trump begging him to stay on message over the past many months. the response was, i hear you. i get it but you are wrong because trump told the source that what his people want to hear from him and what people want to hear from him is being real and that the way he talks makes him different. he said even if it means i'm off the mark. >> it is interesting. he has said in interviews to
10:39 pm
people, people recounted he said to them that he reads a crowd. he has a very finely tuned antenna when he is losing a crowd. >> he's a performer. >> right. he wants to entertain the crowd. i'm not using that in a -- >> i think he has a strategy. you know, when i interviewed him when he said he was going to make his pivot to be presidential. i said why haven't you done it in the primary. he said it is intentional because i had all of these people i had to beat and i was one of 17 and no way i could break through. i think he has a strategy that he feels he understands what people want and how to get from a to b in a way that other people don't. >> it's always struck me, particularly early on when you were there that he -- it is a strategy that -- is it a strategy he came up with, that he instinctively knows how he
10:40 pm
wants to be? i don't think that anybody writing a political play book would have said do this and this. it seems like a lot of it was instinct. >> i think that is right. what you have seen the last two years of the campaign donald trump has had his pulse on the people disenfranchised with the broken washington, d.c. when you look at what he talks about he has done more as a candidate than most elected officials. he's raised issues saying renegotiate bad trade deals and talk about tpp, that hillary clinton said was the gold standard and now i don't like it anymore. >> i think it reminds me of a skit that dave chappelle used to have on the show and we have begun to normalize the behavior of donald trump on the campaign trail. though it riles up his audiences
10:41 pm
they are a small part of the electorate. now the goal is to get 65 million next week. one thing we have to be careful about, we don't need someone who keeps it real in the white house. this is about temperament, about the person that will lead the country. that's what draws fear from a lot of people, not just democrats but republicans, as well. >> to that argument, a lot of republicans are coming back to donald trump. >> i think a lot of republicans are coming back to trump and it has a lot to do with what happened last friday. they were reminded why they dislike hillary clinton so much. >> we don't want a mannequin candidate. today something that was interesting to me in the wikileaks today there was a fervent debate about whether hillary clinton should use the phrase yo mama to get the black vote back. this is a poll tested candidate who debates whether she should use two words. donald trump is himself.
10:42 pm
he is awe thuthentic. >> he was himself when he attacked the khan family, when he attacked miss universe, when he called women horrible names. that's the real donald trump. we don't see what's in the trump e-mails because somehow the cyberterrorism has been exclusively targeting the democrats. that's because the russians want trump to win. >> the american public continue to believe that donald trump is more honest and trustworthy than hillary clinton. every poll indicates that hillary clinton is not as honest and trustworthy. at the end of the day it would be nice to have a person -- >> it would be interesting if republican e-mails were leaked, as well. >> anyone who has direct ties to the russian government is when hillary clinton gave up uranium to the russians. >> donald trump used to say he
10:43 pm

♪ for millions of baby boomers there's a virus 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.

arizona, early voters are waiting more than an hour. >> this is the busiest. we've never seen early voting like this time. >> never? >> never. >> waiting to vote, laura white, a lifelong republican, the face of a changing arizona. >> may i ask, who did you vote for for president? >> i pretty much i'm a registered republican and i pretty much voted democratic all the way across. i did. i think donald trump is corrupt, and i don't know any other word but to say. he's part of the problem. >> and we've heard that about hillary clinton, as well. >> yes, we have. >> even with the latest clinton e-mail controversy it's not enough to flip her back to the gop. the e-mails did affect republican carl owens who wrote in independent evan mcmullin for president. he's frankly disgusted with 2016. >> trust factor with hillary and trump.
10:51 pm
where do i begin? >> when you hear that arizona is in play, that arizona could go blue, what's your reaction? >> my first reaction is it makes you nervous. >> it should. robert graham is the republican party chairman. he's watching the early-voting numbers and the gop spread. >> are you concerned about the spread? >> i was a week and a half ago. now i'm not. we had to turn up the volume to make sure we executed on the great operational structure we have statewide. >> please vote for donald j. trump. >> the state gop pulling out all stops to get out their vote and seeing day-by-day growth in early voting. >> i think it's going to be closer than it ever has been and i do think that it will stay red. >> as far as hillary clinton being in arizona. >> when they're not spending in other states it gives us opportunities to go to those states. >> you're saying these wasting time and money here? >> absolutely. i would be happy to take her out to lunch and share with her all the reasons she should probably go somewhere else. >> reporter: here's what arizona's gop chairman cannot tell us. they know the early vote tally. they know registered
10:52 pm
republicans, they're ahead. they don't know how they voted. did they cross party lines just like democrats don't know if registered democrats are voting for hillary clinton. what we can tell you, anderson is that everyone we spoke with, they do feel like for the first time ever, arizona democrats are in the game. anderson? >> thank you. as you've probably seen the campaign coverage, donald trump routinely calls the press names. some of his animosity rubs off on supporters. it makes unvarnished thoughts from voters that much harder, which is why we saw the following eye opening stops for trump, hand people questions then leave them alone. here's how it played out. >> the format was simple, a microphone and two questions. why are you supporting donald trump or hillary clinton? and why is it important that he or she win? we handed them a piece of paper with the questions and got out of the way.
10:53 pm
our first stop, outside a donald trump rally in charlotte, north carolina. >> it's important for him to win because not only was he going to make the country great again, but the other alternative, hillary clinton, she's corrupt and she really shouldn't be running for president. she should probably be in jail. >> why is it important for him to win? we're killing far too many babies and he certainly is against killing babies. that's one reason i support him. >> it's important for him to win because if he loses this election, our country's done. it's -- we'll never get it back. >> i support donald trump for president because america needs a boss. president trump is going to fire people who don't do their jobs. >> if hillary clinton is elected, she will continue the same path we've been on for the past eight years. we're already circling the drain and i believe she will take us all the way down. >> donald trump is going to change america, not like obama said he would.
10:54 pm
he's going to actually change it and change it good. obama changed it all right for the worst. >> we've got to get donald trump in there to make sure that we have a good supreme court, that we defend the second amendment, and that we make sure we don't have terrorists coming in the united states. >> our next stop, a hillary clinton rally at wake forest university in winston-salem, north carolina. and the same two questions, why are you supporting donald trump or hillary clinton and why is it important that he or she win? >> i'm supporting hillary clinton for the president of the united states because i think it's important that we have a president that's going to support all of our families, all of our children and every citizen of the united states and not make the country more divided than it is. >> truly, she is the only and the best choice, not only do we have a lot of stuff on the line right now, jobs on the line, voting rights on the line, criminal justice reform is on the line, and hillary clinton is the only person that is going to
10:55 pm
make sure that we have a future. >> we need someone in the white house who knows what they are doing. hillary's the best person between the two candidates to do that. she qualified with all of her 30 years of experience and will be good for the country. >> i am a feminist and i believe she is, too, and it would be such an honor to see a female in the white house. >> people in my generation and younger deserve a female role model that proves anyone can be president. >> it's important that hillary win for the integrity of our country, for our citizens, and to continue the progress of the obama administration, and for our reputation throughout the world. >> we also think that there's just no comparison between hillary and the republican nominee, he's a megalomaniac and has proved to be a complete nightmare. >> pretty interesting inside into what donald trump and
