champions since teddy roosevelt. they came back to win in game seven. andy scholes has more from cleveland. >> reporter: what a game. what a series. this is what a 108-year drought celebration looks like. for the first time in a lifetime, the cubs can call themselves champions. >> 108 years. i've been waiting for a team like you, boys. >> that's the story of the 2016 chicago cubs. we never give up. we fight back. we don't care if we're playing on the road or any of that. unbelievable game. >> how awesome is this moment celebrating with your team? >> it's the best. i can't move. this is unbelievable. this is what you dream of as a kid. i'm 24 years old and i'm the luckiest guy on the planet.
it's unbelievable. >> go cubs. go cubs. >> what do you think about coming back from 3-1? >> it's never over until it's over. it's over now. we're on top. >> theo, you did it again. >> the players did it. the fans did it. the ricketts family did it. epic, epic game and performance. 114 wins now. so good. i like baseball. >> andy scholes with theo epstein who likes baseball this morning. all right. theo epstein ecstatic and altered. we have brynn gingras in the middle of it all.
maybe a bit dying down. no, we have cubs fans behind you. what do you see? >> reporter: i talked to a number of people, john and christine. they are not going to work today. one works for chicago public schools. he is not going to work today to teach. i want to introduce you to joel. he is not going to work today. it is just he and his boss. your boss is okay? >> absolutely. my boss is a life long cubs fan as am i. we will take tomorrow off. take it easy. >> reporter: you took today off. you were preparing for the game. tell me how the excitement has been building? >> the excitement was building. it was one game at a time mentality. once we were here today, we knew it was a matter of one game showing up. it happened as exactly as it should have. we were down. we were up. we blew the lead and won it in extra innings. that is the script for this. >> reporter: why is this so
important to you? >> i grew up a cubs fan in north carolina. i actually moved here last year in the middle of the season. this is my first season. i don't want to say they won because of me, but there were factors at play. >> joel, turn around and look at wrigley field. you see world series champions. tell me how that makes you feel. >> it is surreal. look at the great cubs fans out here. they're going to be going all night. it's a great environment. great fans. everyone is super positive. all i can say is this is just a dream for cubs fans. go cubs! >> go cubbies. >> it is getting bigger, john and christine, as people come to wrigley field to get the picture of the sign and head to the bar
after that. >> and eloquent tribute by those gentlemen behind you. >> brynn, thank you. so many people named their kids ryne and clark. there are other fans that crazy? >> the red sox were. >> thousands of kids whose middle name is fenway? >> yeah. and big papi. i have a son named ted. come on. it happens. >> you are one of the crazy fans. this series is not the only contest down to the wire. there is this little thing, you know, the pennant for the presiden presidency. a new poll puts hillary clinton and donald trump neck and neck in colorado. this after decent polls for hillary clinton. overnight, a new campaign message which was a negative ad version of john lennon.
and for the first time today, ted cruz will campaign for donald trump in person. >> we had something come out overnight. the main story is the race is close. this is the latest from colorado. showing a dead heat in a race that is a must win for hillary clinton. a lot of undecided in a poll for five days before the election. let me say that. let's discuss this significance. we are joined by political reporter eugene scott. why is colorado so important for hillary clinton? >> they have a lot of millennial voters who supported obama and they need her on board to help supporting it. she could continue if she was elected president. >> you heard john talk about the undecided. 14% of colorado likely voters are undecided. is that a big proportion this
late in the race? >> definitely within a week of the election. and a poll about a week ago had her leading by seven points. to see her down to pretty much a virtual tie is surprising. >> they may all go for trump. we don't know that. other polling in florida. very close. the cnn poll has hillary clinton with a slight edge right there. i know democrats were excited about early voting numbers overnight. >> clinton was campaigning this week and trying to get women on board and hispanic voters on board. she has alicia machado on board who criticiwas criticized by tr. >> and the president was in north carolina yesterday. hillary clinton barely has a lead in north carolina in the polls. >> very much so. north carolina was the first state obama went to after he hit the trail for hillary clinton.
everyone thinks of north carolina as a red state. it is actually a purple state. i went to college there. charlotte is there. more urban center to balance things out. both fighting really hard for that state. >> there is early voting there. the president is going back after hillary clinton today. working hard for that. all right, eugene scott. thank you. hillary clinton. a huge cubs fan kept her motorcade in tempe, arizona to watch the game. she is in north carolina as her army of big name surrogates, including president obama fanned out across the country. she was in arizona because the campaign is hoping to turn that red state blue. cnn's brianna keilar has latest. >> reporter: john and christine, hillary clinton in arizona trying to turn this red state blue. would be the first time since bill clinton won arizona back in 1996. it is a tall order. she has a lot of surrogates she is relying on. big names, including tim kaine.
he will give a speech in spanish in arizona. also president obama has been campaigning for her arguing that his legacy is tied to hillary clinton. he needs to pass the baton to her. and she tries to appeal to the voters in the middle. those horrified by donald trump. >> on january 20th, either i or trump will be sworn in as the next president of the united states. a lot of people are still considering who to vote for. i think people who are considering voting for him say to themselves, you know, i don't like everything he says and i don't like a lot of things he's done in his life, but maybe he'll become different when he becomes president. and then i think some people are saying, well, maybe i'll just sit this one out. you know, i can't really make up
my mind. nothing will change if he's elected because we know who he is. as michelle obama says the presidency doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> reporter: it is not the positive message hillary clinton is hoping to end the campaign on. she doesn't have the breathing room she has in the polls before the e-mail controversy erupted again. john and christine. >> brianna keilar, thank you for that. overnight, donald trump introduced a new line in the stump speech. praising himself and warning himself to stay on message. donald trump is getting help from surrogates on the campaign trail. today, the big news is melania trump will speak on his behalf, in pennsylvania. and ted cruz, the man who trump questioned if he was born in the
united states. ted cruz on the campaign trail with mike pence. we have sunlen serfaty with more. >> reporter: good morning, john and christine. donald trump is trying to show late in the game message discipline. he is staying on script. he is reading off teleprompter. really trying to keep the attack lines focused on hillary clinton. clearly the calculation within the trump campaign that trump should not deviate from the message. not say anything controversial as he has in the past to step on the message. donald trump at his rally in pensacola, florida, talked about the restraint and almost repeating what his campaign advisers are telling him behind the scenes. don't do anything to rock the boat. >> we have to be nice and cool. nice and cool.
all right? stay on point, donald. stay on point. no side tracks, donald. nice and easy. i've been watching hillary the last few days. >> reporter: and donald trump will focus on battleground states. he has a rally in florida and then off to north carolina. melania trump will be hitting the campaign trail solo. she will have a speech in philadelphia. campaign aides say she will deliver a warm speech. talk about her time growing up abroad and potentially what she would do as first lady. >> sunlen serfaty, thanks. election day is next tuesday. you want to follow along and see how it's going? i recommend watching cnn. we will have the best and most comprehensive coverage ever all day long on tuesday and into the night and well into wednesday. >> i have been studying up on the ballot issues. raising the minimum wage in four
and drink 43% more water every day. sodastream. love your water. we have breaking news from iraq. we are getting a live look at people are fleeing the fighting in mosul. joining us with remarkable perspective on the situation is senior international correspondent arwa damon. arwa, tell us what you are seeing. >> reporter: good morning. take a look. the iraqi army sent in the trucks to pick up the people that have been waiting since the early hours of the morning. many of them are in an understandable state of panic. overnight, there was a very heavy exchange of mortar fire and rocket propelled grenades
have been fired. some were telling us their neighbors were killed along with their children. a lot of them walked here. if they have a vehicle, they were allowed through. these people walked for hours to relative safety. they are packing into the trucks as they are coming down. john, we were speaking with a group of women. some have their faces covered. some do not. one particular group of women still had their faces covered. i asked why. they said they have family in mosul. they have family inside mosul who they say tried to cross the frontlines and flee into the area that we're in. then isis shot at them and forced them to return to mosul. that is something we have been hearing happening frequently. isis trying to trap the civilian population to use them as human shields. throughout all of this, we have been speaking to quite a few people who have been living under isis for the last two years. i have to say the most chilling
story i have heard so far in the last 24 hours is that of a mother enslaved by isis and raped and gave birth to a baby boy. all she said she could do was hope he never knew who his father was. you see the iraqi troops loading the smallest ones in the back of the trucks. right now, it was organized. it was chaotic before the trucks arrived before people were guaranteed transportation. there was a mass scramble to the flatbed vehicles sent out to the area. people are telling us that even though there are parts of this town that are safe, but what they want to do is get as far away from the fighting as possible. if we just speak to some of them. they fled from that area further up i was talking about.
they only brought a few clothes. these are her daughters. we were very, very afraid. too afraid. there was a lot of firing. there were a few bullets that came. a lot of people had mortars falling on them and they were killed. they said it was a far distance they came. she is from other areas. this is something we have been hearing a bit. as isis pushed through the different parts of iraq, people would flee from one village to
the other. one of the villages that people fled to from other areas only to remain trapped. a fair number of these people are going to be leaving this battle zone and they hope to eventually be able to go back home to the original villages that they were from. of course, they don't know what to expect. they don't know what to see. the other thing which is critical, john, is these people need to rebuild their trust with the iraqi security forces. the last time there was this interaction between this population that has lived under isis and iraqi security forces, especially in and around mosul, was when iraqi security forces abandoned their positions and left. as important as it is to win the battle for mosul and as important as it is for the government to ensure these kinds of support systems are in place to get these people to safety because they need to rebuild that trust. you see especially the men here
are being searched. these people are all people who had to be screened. iraqis have lists of people whom they believe are affiliated with isis. the concern is isis would potentially infiltrate the civilian population and those leaving to carry out attacks. everything is very, very methodically searched. we have been seeing despite the hardship and trek, there is relief among the people because they do have a sense that at the very least, isis is gone for now. >> arwa damon near mosul on the ground with a stunning look as people flee from the heart of the city. indicating perhaps that the offensive into mosul to drive isis out is entering a new stage. arwa, thank you for the reporting. we will check back in with you in a little bit.

this is going to be a tough play. the cubs win the world series! >> all right. breaking news. there is joy in mudville tonight. the cubs win their third world series with only a small 108-year gap in the middle. also breaking overnight. a poll shows hillary clinton and donald trump tied in battleground colorado. welcome back to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm john berman. 29 minutes past the hour. where were you when the world
turned upside down? a few of the things happened since the cubs last won the world series. internet, television, super bowls. all of them. the world wars, both of them. 108 years is a long time. but it is now history. the cubs did it the hard way. they came back after being down three games to one and game seven was bonkers. andy scholes in the middle of it all in cleveland. >> reporter: what a game. what a series. this is what a 108-year drought celebration looks like. for the first time in a lifetime, the cubs can call themselves champions. >> 108 years. i've been waiting for a team like you, boys! >> it's the story of this 2016
chicago cubs. we never give up. we fight back. we don't care if we're playing on the road or any of that. unbelievable game. >> how awesome is this moment celebrating with your teammates? >> it's the best. i can't move. i don't care. this is what you dream of as a kid. i'm 24 years old. i'm the luckiest guy on the planet. >> it's unbelievable. go cubs. go cubs. >> what do you say about the team coming back from 3-1 to win? >> we never quit. we never quit. it's never over until it's over. it's over now and we're on top. >> they'o, you did it again. >> the organization did it. the fans did it. the ricketts family did it. total team effort. epic, epic game. 114 wins now. so good.
i like baseball. >> there's -- i like baseball. perfect match. there's nothing, nothing but pure joy in chicago. cubs fans still up. this thing did not get done until 1:30 our time. look, this is a world series victory and they are partying like it is 1908. cnn's brynn gingras has been out among the faithful. >> look at these people. >> so awesome. brynn. >> reporter: this is insane. still look at all these people are out here. are you guys excited or what? no one has been drinking at all i swear. everyone is walking down to wrigley field to get a picture
of the world series champion sign and chanting through the streets. setting off fireworks. everyone is so super excited. i want to introduce carla. it is her birthday. >> it is my birthday. >> tell me what this feels like for you. >> it's exciting. it's awesome. i was born in chicago. i'm speechless. i almost cried. i'm happy. i really am. i love chicago. >> i'm happy this is a good birthday present. you couldn't ask for anything better. i was talking to a mom who had her two kids out here an hour ago. she had a manicure and she bit
off all her nails during the game. the fashion is just as exciting as the cubs winning. >> it was literally a nail biter. >> it is reasonable and rational behavior. the fact she had her two kids out at 2:00 a.m. not judging. >> brynn, thank you. that is awesome. everybody wants to be close. look. >> they will never get people away from wrigley. with five days to go in the race for president, both sides are adjusting strategies. that's next.
showing the race tied this after decent polls from other states from hillary clinton in the afternoon. overnight, hillary clinton had a new campaign message that sounded like a negative ad version from john lennon. today, for the first time, ted cruz will campaign for trump in person. and polling shows colorado a tie. the university of denver poll shows hillary clinton and donald trump at 39%. let's bring in eugene scott. what do these numbers mean in the campaign strategy? >> colorado was a state she was not campaigning in because she was confident. she took a backseat and donald trump was aggressive with the state. especially with millennial voters and a significant number of them for gary johnson. >> and still no word for hillary clinton and will go there or obama. that would be a sign that the clinton team think these have
work to do. we saw polls from florida and north carolina over the last 24 hours. the polls seem to give hillary clinton a slight edge there although within the margin of error. >> both of those states are with the obama coalition. she hopes to win with black voters and women and hispanics. she is pulling out all stops. president obama at chapel hill yesterday. she is hoping he can convince people to get on board her campaign like they were his. >> he is going there tomorrow. north carolina working hard. thank you, eugene. so, hillary clinton. we have been talking about the world series. hillary clinton born in illinois. a cubs fan. you can see her reaction last night. or this morning or an hour ago when the cubs won the world series. she kept her motorcade to see the end of the game. obviously a very excited cubs fan.
today she goes to north carolina as eugene was saying. such an important state for her. you see her surrogates out on the trail working very hard. hillary clinton was in arizona before she watched the cubs game last night. she wants to bring arizona into the democratic column. cnn's brianna keilar was there. >> reporter: john and christine, hillary clinton in arizona trying to turn this red state blue. would be the first time since bill clinton won arizona back in 1996. so it is a tall order. she has a lot of surrogates she is relying on. big names, including tim kaine who will give a speech entirely in spanish here in arizona. also president obama has been campaigning for her arguing that his legacy is tied to hillary clinton. that he needs to pass the bat baton to her. and hillary clinton has been hitting donald trump hard as she tries to appeal to voters in the middle.
those repelled by donald trump and not certain about voting on for hillary clinton. >> on january 20th, either i or donald trump will be sworn in as the next president of the united states. a lot of people are still considering who to vote for. i think people who are considering voting for him say to themselves, you know, i don't like everything he says and i don't like a lot of things he's done in his life, but maybe he'll become different when he becomes president. and then i think some people are saying well, maybe i'll just sit this one out. you know, i don't -- i can't really make up my mind. nothing will change if he's elected because we know who he is. as michelle obama says, the presidency doesn't change who you are. it reveals who you are. >> reporter: it's not the positive message that hillary clinton was hoping to end the campaign on. she doesn't have the breathing room in the polls she had before
friday when her e-mail controversy erupted again. that's why you are seeing the shift. john and christine. >> thank you. donald trump finishing the campaign on a different note than many predicted. the republican nominee suddenly disciplined. he is on message. like clinton, trump is getting help from a number of surrogates. his wife and children and other on the surrogate list. ted cruz will join mike pence on the trail. let's bring in sunlen serfaty with more. >> reporter: good morning, john and christine. donald trump and his closing message seems to be trying to show late in the game message discipline. he is staying on script. he is reading off teleprompter for the rallies trying to keep the attack lines focused on hillary clinton. clearly the calculation from within the trump campaign is trump should not do anything to
deviate from the message. not try to say anything controversy as he had said in the past. and donald trump talked about the new found restraint almost repeating what his campaign advisers are telling him behind-the-scenes. don't do anything to rock the boat in the final days. >> we have to be nice and cool. nice and cool. right? stay on point, donald. stay on point. no side tracks, donald. nice and easy. because i've been watching hillary the past few days. she's unhinged. >> reporter: donald trump will focus on battleground states today. he has a rally in jacksonville and then off to north carolina. melania trump is hitting the campaign trail solo. she will have a big speech in the suburbs in philadelphia. campaign aides say she will deliver a warm speech.
closing arguments. five days to go until election day. let's break it down with brian stelter and ellis henican. nice to see you. this is it. you have donald trump. yesterday he was saying i'm going to stay on message. that was after he went after a reporter again. listen to that moment and i'll ask you, brian, what's going on here. >> we have massive crowds. there's something happening. they're not reporting it. katy, you're not reporting it,
katy. there's something happening, katy. >> and ending the campaign like it began. calling out the media. >> i remember donald trump criticizing katy tur. he is no less correct now than he was many months ago. the cameras do show the crowds. we show the crowds at rallies. katy tur says he knows we show the crowds. this is effective for his audience. his crowds love it when he criticizes the press. >> we are all katy tur. it is not about her. it is about all of us covering the rallies. they want right coverage. >> trump has been avoiding the 3:00 a.m. tweets and off-topic rants. he is focusing on the fbi investigation and obamacare.
he is delivering. >> hillary clinton a week and a half ago before the fbi investigation, she wanted to finish on a positive message. that has not happened. she clearly decided to take on trump directly. overnight in arizona, you have a bit of a taste of it. listen. >> imagine with me what it would be like to have donald trump sitting in the oval office come next january. someone who demeans women, mocks the disabled, insults latinos and african-americans. what would it be like to have that person in the most powerful office in the world? >> ellis henican, risk or reward? >> it is a shame. it would be better because she needs to make a positive sale. every step of the campaign, you
succeed by going out to hate the person you are running against. >> i'm sorry, pennsylvania and ohio, you will not have your tv back until next week. it is all his words. use his words and things he said and done over and over. >> during the world series, big advertisements from trump and clinton. they were negative. clinton bought two negative ads. two showing trump's words. the words on the "access hollywood" tape in one of the ads. during the world series, negative ads. >> we had a colorado poll which shows a tie which is a concern for the clinton campaign. polls from pennsylvania with a four-point edge which is enough to win pennsylvania. wisconsin with a six-point edge there. and in florida and north carolina, a very tiny edge there. nate silver, who we quote way too much, who said if you went into yesterday with evidence of the race is tied, you didn't get
that. you saw evidence that hillary clinton is probably a little bit ahead. >> that is right. i have to throw out my polling caveats. i don't believe it in previous years. i think cell phones make a difference. very difficult to poll millenni millennials. the differences we may not get good answers out of the polls. >> it is not the pollsters are purposely getting it wrong. >> that is ridiculous. the signs are just tougher today. >> there is more of it. thank you for being here early. nice to have you on board. facebook sets a record for quarterly revenue, but the stock is getting crushed in pre-market trading. we will tell you why investors are not happy about the social network. we will have a check on the money stream next.
