>> i've been watching hillary the last few days. she's totally unhinged. >> if donald trump were to win this election, we would have a commander in chief who is completely out of his depth. >> we don't operate innuendo and incomplety information and operate on leaks. >> the cubs have won the world series! the curse is broken. this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alisyn cameroa. very exciting night. it's thursday, negative 3rd. 6:00 in the east. breaking the curse. the chicago cubs are world series champions. the last time anyone could say
that was 1908. the cubs ending baseball's longest championship drought in dramatic fashion. >> you want to hear alisyn, go, ow, a baseball has 108 stitches and the cubs went 108 years. the epic game seven had everything, boy. it was so toit. it had to go in extra inning. there was this rain delay in the middle of it that heightened the drama but in the end the cubs took out the indians and chicago's north side is going crazy. we have all the bases covered. let's begin with andy sholes at the game in cleveland. you guys getting to live history of the good kind. >> how's it going, chris? i know you like all the 108 correlations. the cubs won in the tenth inning with eight runs. 108. what a game last night. one of the greatest world series games. the emotion these two fan bases
had to go through in this one. enough to last a lifetime. the indians were down two in the bottom of the eighth inning when davis hit a two-run home run. the game would be tied after that. we'd go to extra innings and after a short rain delay ben zobrist, the world series mvp. their 108-year world series drought. >> 108 years! >> 108 years doesn't mean anything any more. it's the start of something new. a new chapter for the chicago cubs and for the entire city. >> what do you say about this team the way you came back from
3-1 to win this. >> we never quit. it's never over until it's over. >> this is what you dream for as a kid and i'm 24 years old and i'm the luckiest guy on the planet, man. >> chicago bears one of many teams sending a congrats to the cubs this morning. #flythew. i tell you what, guys, i've been into a handful of locker room celebrations and last night's cubs party was one sight. i've never seen so many champagne bottles. my eyes and ears still burning as we speak. >> chris calls that a saturday night. but, that's great, andy. good for you. so exciting. >> thousands of delairioirious are still outside.
we still hear all the revelry, brynn. >> a lot of champagne and a lot of everything here on the north side of wrigley field. you were talking about just the drama of this game. i actually talked to one woman who was out here partying with her two young daughters, if you can believe it or not. she literally had bitten off the nails on her hands and as the how nervous this game made her. she is just ecstatic at this win, as is the rest of chicago at this point. we've seen people partying into the streets through the early morning. this becoming ground zero. wrigley field home of chicago cubs world series champions. a lot of people coming down here into the early morning and probably throughout the day we'll see taking pictures of that sign right there and fireworks being set off. people still cheering, flying the w from their cars as they make their way through the streets here in chicago.
among those fans, of course, two very important chicago natives. president obama sending his congratulations through a twitter. actually, inviting the cubs to come to the white house before he vacates the white house later next year. and, also, hillary clinton also sending her congratulations, as well. chicago native. they did it, 100 years later and the drought is finally over. of course the #flythew. a lot of people calling out sick later today. >> not you. nose to the grind stone. >> no, i'm here! >> 1908 is the last time they did it. last time they did it, men named hank. >> i am going to play 108 tonight in the lottery. >> or 1-9-0-8. 1908 is when that started. let's turn to the presidential race. hillary clinton and donald trump
hitting the full throttle, that doesn't work as a metaphor, but we'll say it anyway. they're trying to show what their best case is here in the last days and what are the polls showing? that it's really tight. just five days out. cnn's joe johns live in washington with more. joe. >> good morning, chris. all about get out the vote for both of these candidates, states and the challenge is to - rev up voter excitement. but for donald trump it's about message discipline avoiding another stumble. while for hillary clinton motivating minorities and younger voters to show up. donald trump reminding himself to stay on message. >> we've got to be nice and cool. nice and cool. stay on point, donald. stay on point. >> reporter: making his big push in battleground florida as new cnn polls show the race tightening in several swing states. >> i have been watching hillary the last few days. she's totally unhinged.
>> reporter: hillary clinton striking a grave tone, targeting minority voters in nevada by using trump's own words against him. >> someone who demeans women, mocks the disabled, insults latinos and african-americans. >> reporter: clinton also aggressively setting her sights on the red state of arizona where trump holds a five-point lead. >> if donald trump were to win this election, we would have a commander in chief who is completely out of his depth and whose ideas are incredibly dangerous. or maybe, heaven forbid, start a real war instead of just a twitter war. >> reporter: both candidates ramping up attacks. clinton calling trump, dark and devisi devisive. >> the presidency doesn't change who you are, it reveals who you are. >> immediately repealing and replacing obama care. you think hillary's going to --
i don't think so, folks. >> reporter: hammering away at the recent fbi scrutiny over clinton's private e-mail server. >> they just found 650,000 e-mails. i have a feeling those e-mails are going to be -- there's going to be some beauties in there. >> reporter: in an interview with "people" magazine hillary clinton calling it noise and distraction. while remaining confident in the final stretch. >> everything he has said and done both in his career and in this campaign is a pretty good preview of what's to come. >> reporter: today, the battleground state focus continues and where the candidates are going tells you what their priorities are. donald trump traveling to florida and north carolina today and hillary clinton making yet another visit to the tarheel state, as well. chris and alisyn? >> joe, appreciate it. a series of new cnn polls that show the race tightening in
the battleground states overall and going in that direction in this final stretch. let's go through the numbers. we have cnn senior political analyst ron brownstein and david gregory. ron, to start off with the headline. you have the man who wants to build the wall against the woman who needs to protect the wall. >> the blue wall. >> i saw it on alisyn's paper and i stole it like it was mine. >> there is a really interesting, strategic choice if hillary clinton is made in this campaign almost completely unremarked. she has put in october an effort insurance states for her. ohio, florida, north carolina, iowa, nevada. those are states that she doesn't have to win in order to get to 270. two states that are her inner core of 270 new hampshire and pennsylvania that she has treated as battleground states. but michigan, wisconsin, new
mexico a little different. they have treat them as done deals. spent $180 million in ohio, florida and north carolina. they spent $16 million in wisconsin, michigan and colorado. they need to win the second three. they would like to win the first three. >> which one do you define as the blue wall? >> the blue wall, so, the blue wall was phrased in 2009 -- >> are you dpogoing to say that every time? >> yes, it's copyrighted. literally the blue wall are the 18 states that have voted democratic in every election since 1982. plus d.c., that's 242 electoral college votes. >> the wall is not connected. >> no, it's not. >> there is a break in the wall. >> an inapt metaphor. >> of the wall, there are three states. michigan, wisconsin and pennsylvania that are all competitive. when you add virginia, colorado,
new mexico and new hampshire, that would be enough to win. she doesn't need florida and she doesn't need ohio or north carolina. those are insurance. the question is whether by focusing so much on those states she left any opening for donald trump who is now pushing for several of those states in her inner 270. >> so, what do we see in the numbers of our polls? >> david, you can comment on this. >> i don't have a wall. >> hold on, these are our swing state battleground states. he is up in arizona. she is up, marginally, in florida. he is up in nevada. she is up in pennsylvania. okay, go ahead, david. >> well, i think not only our polling up in pennsylvania but the marquette poll that shows her up six points in wisconsin. that's very important for her. but if you look at those really important states for her and if she can combine new hampshire, it's done. it's over. it's 270. as ron has been saying a lot,
she doesn't have to be focused where she has been focused on florida and north carolina and lose all those things if she can hold one of the strong states in the west and then put together wisconsin and new hampshire. so, i think a lot of this dynamic of where she's been spending her time is a bc issue, a before comey issue. before comey got involved with these e-mails, the race did look different. she was in a much more commanding position and could focus on her larger goal, which is not just winning, but winning big. because she's going to have a mandate issue all along because she's going up against donald trump. now, she's in a much tighter race as republicans come home. republican officials i talk to say there's a guilt factor going on among top republicans who don't want to see trump lose by two, three points because they stayed on the fence or decided not to vote for him. so, he's benefiting from that along with these senate candidates who are bringing those voters home for trump. if they're going to show up for ron johnson, they're probably
going to vote for trump, as well. >> let's take a look at our poll of polls in battlegrounds -- >> florida. >> this is why we do the poll of polls. trump is up one and clinton is up two in some polls today. over the archlg of the last five major ones. you get 45, 45. so, that creates a provocative inflection point here with a question, ron. men at work, great singer on his own. i watched the sun come up, i watch it as it sets. is this as good as it gets? the comey bomb that was dropped on clinton's head still has her up in one poll, tied in florida. was it not enough to push trump over? >> i think that is the critical question as we look at all these polls that are out today. if you look at a state like a wisconsin or a pennsylvania, in particular. donald trump was not ahead in the polling that was taken during the height of the comey release friday and saturday. if he's not ahead in a poll that includes that, will he go ahead
at any point or is there ongoing momentum? wisconsin and pennsylvania and that he will get over the top especially because both of those states -- they think they're close and they can't quite get there. florida is a little bit different. florida and north carolina embody similar dynamics where you have the risk of her to diminished african-american turnout and the question is, can she overcome that by more hispanic turnout in florida and better performance among college eed educated whites. would that be enough to overcome if black turn out is not as high as it was for him in north carolina? >> this is also tempered by republicans who think even in states, you know, senior republicans that i talk to say, look, he is still looking at pennsylvania and new hampshire as being best options for him. two states where he's pretty well behind and what they're saying is, well, we need something else to happen. we there has to be some other
kind of revelation which goes to ron's point. he may be minding for votes in states like michigan. some place where they've seen some movement towards him. you do what you can do, but that's not getting him ahead. it's just some movement toward him trying to tap into some of that momentum. that's still a more limited card to play and more of a losing card to play. >> ron, we just very quickly we just put up the poll of polls in north carolina where she is up, if you crunch all the numbers. 46 to 42. is that the state to keep your eyes on? >> if she wins north carolina, they have bet heavily on north carolina and florida. they put unbelievable effort. $128 million. 19 appearances since june 1st. the president seems to be in charlotte. he would be voting for city council in charlotte because he's there so often. north carolina is the state where early voting has been tracking it seems to be consistent. by the way, in nevada, my
colleague says that the early vote is so pro-clinton at this point that the state might be gone. >> that's funny. that's always what the polls say. >> but the actual. nevada is a state where the democratic machine is kind of, the turnout machine is living up to its billing. it's not true everywhere by any means. north carolina is going to be decided by whether donald trump is going to blow the doors off in rural north carolina. he may lose the big metropolitan area. real quick, in 2012 president obama won the largest and lost the other 3,000 counties by a combined 7 million votes. both sides of that could be bigger for hillary clinton. the gap between metro and nonmetro america could be. >> david, let's look at what the polls have looked like over the past three months. it's interesting when you look at them in terms of the various controversies that have kraucro up on each side. when you average out the polls.
okay, so the poll of polls, hillary clinton has always stayed on top, i mean, regardless of wikileaks and regardless of "access hollywood. ". >> the comey bomb the latest one now. >> what do you see, dave snud. >> i think there is a core of this race. a core question that is really about capacity. donald trump is not fit or qualified to be president in the view of a majority of americans. so, character and capacity are his greatest vulnerabilities and she's exploited that. why she may not be trusted. she may not be particularly liked. imagine him in the oval office question that she's using on the stump now is ultimately decisive with voters. that's the -- i do think that that is what we're seeing in those polls. he can't quite get over that vulnerability. >> thank you very much. president obama has been hitting the trail hard for hillary clinton and criticizing fbi director james comey.
he said the fbi should not operate on "innuendo or leaks." michelle kosinski is live. he did not say director comey's name, but everybody knew what he was saying. >> when you read it or listened to it or digested it at first it is a little ambiguous. at first he talks about not wanting to weigh in and then talking about how this played out. earlier this week the white house made headlines by defending the fbi director. saying he wasn't intentionally trying to influence the election. defending his character and his integrity. but, the president didn't quite seem to be saying that. in the words that he chose yesterday, he seemed to be unhappy with how this felt together. listen. >> there is a norm that when there are investigations, we
don't operate on innuendo. we don't operate on incomplete information. we don't operate on leaks. >> and was he talking about the timing there when he talked about incomplete information? was he saying that's how this was released by the fbi? but, remember, before he said that he was talking about how he didn't want to comment on this. yes, the white house was asked about the president's comments yesterday after he said them. was this a change in tone? was this critical? but the white house isn't weighing in any further, at least not yet. alisyn? >> thank you so much. coming up on "new day" we want to tell you that kellyanne conway will join us live in our 8:00 hour. stick around for that. you have trump and clinton doing everything they can in these final days. that's what you would expect. but what does that mean specifically? what is their final pitch and
we're five days. donald trump and hillary clinton making their final pitches to these voters in the days left in the election. what are their strategies? let's bring back our panel of political experts david gregory and ron brownstein. ron, let's look at voter composition. that's something you like to do. they're, both, obviously, trying to appeal to minority voters. let's look at where the challenges are. let's first look at african-americans. as we have been talking about, the early voting suggests that is down since 2008 and 2012. that is a challenge for hillary clinton. >> yes. look, the political scientists differ how much early voting predicts actual voting on election day. some dispute about that. this caught the attention of president obama who talked about it yesterday. if you asked me what is the critical factor in the final day, the composition of the
electorate is the single largest factor and it is partially because the divergence between the key groups is so big. in the abc/"washington post" tracking poll by more than ronald reagan beat walter mondale and that is astounding. every additional point of turnout he generates from that group is really significant. on the other hand, hillary clinton has a really big advantage among latinos and minorities and running better than any other democrat nominee. even small differences in how large of the electorate each of these groups will matter enormously with tip states like north carolina and florida. >> the tipping point is 72% white, if it's higher he wins and if it's lower she wins. >> but something to that. the composition of the white vote matters. you'll see the biggest
divergence in this election between the vote of noncollege whites. in '08 president obama ran seven points among college whites and it's the biggest gap ever. it's probably going to be double or more. she's going to run 15 points better. so, in a state like north carolina where you have a white collar suburban vote that is trending democratic outside of raleigh and charlotte, how does that compare to the rural parts of the state where donald trump may set records in this election? the composition of the electorate is huge. that's where the turnout focus and where the enthusiasm comes in, too. >> take us deeper into the data. if we're going to talk about composition and we look at it on the other side of the ball with the democrats, that comes down with the obama coalition. what have we seen in early voting? you've seen the african-american vote, obviously, key for barack obama, not at the levels it was. but you see latinos up. here's the problem. these are not equal commodities. explain why.
>> well, first of all, when you look at the african-american voting early voting say in north carolina, republicans will point out that they are doing less bad, less poorly than did mitt romney. they ended up winning in 2012. the republicans did. romney did in 2012. i think that the hispanic vote in states from north carolina to arizona, colorado. these are states where she, hillary clinton, can define her own coalition of ascendant voters and we know that's true of the latino community across the country who may be particularly motivated to vote. i also think when we talk about the white composition of the vote what matters is who is speaking to those voters. hillary clinton may have a more limited ability to try to win back some of those voters. white voters who had a college degree. those are voters who are part of her husband's coalition back in 1992. he is out there speaking to them. joe biden is speaking to them. tim kaine is speaking to them
and they have the ability because of a large number of surrogates to deploy those folks around. and then college plus voters. voters with a college education, i think, are going to be open to the message of trump's bigotry. of trump's intemperate behavior, his riskiness. the idea of can you imagine him really being the commander in chief and having his finger on the nuclear code. those are arguments that she's making to move that part of the electorate and shift as much of it around as possible. >> defined by the fact that we have two candidates that are historically unpopular. when hillary clinton had a more comfortable voters for voters who did not think that much of her but simply as david said could not imagine donald trump as president. the events of the last week have shifted, i think, for many of them. their focus back towards the things they don't like about hillary clinton. one of the core questions in the last week, do they go into the final days thinking aboutthe
limitations of hillary clinton or their hesitation and concern about donald trump. >> we have a window into donald trump's strategy because he's speaking to himself out loud. in fact, this is like his inner monologue on a hot mike. let me play for you. he's just putting it all out there what he's telling himself to do in these last days. listen to this. >> we are going to win the white house. going to win it. it's feeling like it already. 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 last few days and she's totally unhinged. we don't want any of that. she has become unhinged. >> he is not even letting people see his eyes.
he has his hat all the way down. >> imagine how strange that is. he is such an erratic person and that he has to talk out loud about resisting his impulsiveness. >> he's not joking. we're laughing, but i'm laughing at the ridiculousness of it. he has to say to himself, don't put my foot in my mouth or attack anyone. >> this is real input that he's getting that he has to stay on track. it's why the argument is that he is so dangerous. i think there's one more thing to keep in mind. how many people have already made up their mind about how they're going to vote and are they so depressed that they may not come out to vote versus late deciders who may be buffeted by comey. >> we are 30 million people that have already voted. >> thank you for going through the numbers and the strategy with us. election day just five long days away. we will be there for you in unique fashion. all day. every race. every count. cnn will have it for you.

trade deals have become a central issue of this election. let's look at where each candidate stands on trade. >> we'll start with donald trump. he has come out fiercely against recent trade deals and criticizes countries like china and mexico for practices he says are hurting american workers. >> we're living through the greatest jobs' theft in the history of the world. they're stealing our jobs. they're stealing our companies. they're taking our money. we have drugs, we have debt, we have empty factories. that's going to end. >> now, the rub is trump is
running as a change agent. taking away from the american job base failing to lay out policies for his own contracting, for his own making of goods and, also, contracts not being specific about his own trade positions. >> all right, so, trump does, however, pledge to withdraw from the transpacific partnership tpp and nafta if they're unable to renegotiate the terms of that deal. >> tough and smart negotiators to identify and foreign trade violations. trump also says he will crack down on china, a place where he uses them to make some of his goods. labeling the country a currency manipulator and imposing tariffs if china doesn't change its ways. >> let's look at hillary clinton's position on trade. her position on free trade is less clear cut. for years she has gone case by case on various trade deals. she explained her thought
process at the first presidential debate. listen to this. >> when i was in the senate, i had a number of trade deals that came before me. and i held them all to the same test. will they create jobs in america and raise incomes in america and are they good for our national security? some of them i voted for. the biggest one, a multi-national one i voted against. and because i hold the same standards as i look at all of these trade deals. >> all right, now, in terms of her husband's signature trade agreement, nafta negotiated by bush put passed into law by clinton she spoke favorably as the deal as first lady and then changed her position during her first run for president calling the deal a mistake. >> when it comes to obama's signature trade agreement, clinton now opposes that deal calling it the gold standard while it was being negotiated. she also promises to strengthen trade enforcement and stand up to countries like china. she also wants to make companies
that move businesses overseas pay an exit tax. and she plans to force companies getting tax breaks to pay that money back, if they outsource overseas. all right. those are their positions on trade. over to you, chris. >> magic, i moved. so, the election is framed by some as a referendum on president obama's policies. and there's no question that there is a whole host of issues that resonate with voters wanting change. so, what is trump doing in terms of staying on message versus stepping on his message? let's discuss. we have cnn political analyst with us margaret hoover, a commentator and political consultant. she is not supporting donald trump. so, the fight against isis huge with people. they do not feel safe. what does he say? >> come on, donald. >> he's thinking about it. >> isis is honoring trezpreside
obama. he is the founder of isis. she the founder of isis. he is the founder. he founded isis. and i would say the co-founder would be crooked hillary clinton. so now we're bombed out in mosul, the enemy is much tougher than they thought. they had a lot of time to get ready. they're using human shields all over the place. >> now, strong rhetoric impresses the crowd. here's the problem, patently false. obama, president obama did not give birth to isis. any military expert will tell you that. certainly hillary clinton wouldn't be the co-founder. mosul, you can't find a general who is currently active that agrees with his assessment. yet, these are two ripe areas for the gop to argue. what should he be saying? >> donald trump has a very good argument to make about the obama administration's role in the
creation of isis. all right. that is not an overstatement. he can argue that hillary clinton's state department didn't diplomatically engage iraq and didn't diplomatically engage iraq to renegotiate the status of power and instead hands off let the country to politically crumble and that created more of a power vacuum for isis to take control. that is a real argument. in two debates and many times when it was brought up didn't have time to make the policy case that they really did have a role to play here. >> his sounds better. >> it sounds worse because the crowd loves it, but as an american president, our allies, our enemies, everybody is listening to every single word you say and precision matters. >> obama care. again, people don't like it. they're seeing their premiums go up. they don't see an end in sight. here's what trump says. >> we will be able to immediately repeal and replace obama care. have to do it.
i will ask congress to convene a special session so we can repeal and replace. >> okay. here's the problem. congress will be in session. he doesn't have to call a special session. so, that doesn't make sense. immediately repeal and replace. offering something by all estimates he cannot deliver. why? >> well, i mean, look, any president you know 27 times presidents have called a special session of congress. so, if he did need to, that's not constitutionally out of the ordinary. >> usually when congress isn't in session. >> what he should be doing here, right, as the top of the republican ticket. the reason republicans haven't repealed obama care is because they haven't had a senate and a house. what he should be doing is use the platform to help the ballot race and say if you want me and the american congress, you have to go vote for rob portman and kelly ayotte. he should be using this as an
opportunity to help the senate candidates down ballot. that's the key to repealing obama care. >> he could have a much more detailed plan about what he would replace it with. he's not giving people enough other than a promise that this one goes. will that be enough? we'll see. the obama coalition is a big task here. can you make end roads? there are arguments to be made that you can go to inner city communities with. now, what does donald trump say? >> african-americans are living in hell in the inner cities. they're living in hell. you walk to the store for a loaf of bread, you get shot. we're going to fix our inner cities. >> okay. this guy needs to lower the sign because he's the one african-american guy. now, ghettoizing the reality is offensive even used the word our ghettos. this is not the reality for most
african-americans. is he missing the opportunity here to say something real? >> you know, he is missing an opportunity. there is actually one of his good surrogates rudy giuliani helped turn around new york city in the early '90 when there were 2,000 murders a year. when you had terrible inner city plight where it does affect african-american and latino communities. >> absolutely. >> a couple things he could have done. he could make a policy or argument for urban renewal and he often also doesn't make the second amendment argument here. some of the cities where the crime is worse is actually where there are high gun control laws. that doesn't stop the fact that there are murders with handguns, weapons every day. he could make a second amendment argument here, too. a couple ways he could go. again, just to ghettoize the minority community does not help make end roads to that community. >> especially if you don't talk about how to end poverty.
>> you could also talk education reform, by the way. this could be the civil rights issue of the next generation if the republicans had really take hold of it. margaret hoover, thank you very much. appreciate the perspective, as always. there is this fall heat wave that is keeping parts of the country warm. is it coming to an end? cnn meteorologist jennifer grey with the forecast. what are you seeing, jennifer? >> that's right, alisyn. a little bit of a cool down in the northeast. this weather report is brought to you by humana. let's get to that cooler weather, especially in the northeast. so, temperatures above average is what they've been over the past couple of days. now, that's all going to change when cooler air starts to filter in across mainly the northeast. some of that will touch the deep south. but as this happens, warm weather will build in the west across the plains, the rockies. we're not talking about hot conditions. it will actually be quite pleasant. so, temperatures are going to go from say new york city
thursday's high of 71 degrees by sunday your high temperature will be at 56. so, definitely feeling like fall in the northeast. d.c. goes from 78 today to 66 on sunday. so, quite a change there. early look at your election day forecast could see some scattered showers in the south, as well as around the great lakes. if you want to avoid some of those, chris. may want to get out and vote early. >> jay gray, what happened to the herring run on the east coast, our fishing not what it was supposed to do. i believe you made a false promise there. up next, a closer look at trump and clinton's media strategies as we head into the home stretch. there was a ton of dough being spent. where and what is their final message to you, next. abdominal pain?
donald trump bought ads in last night's final world series game to reach all of those millions of people watching. so, how are they getting their message into your head with just five days left? joining us now senior media correspondent brian stelter. they're both avoiding any big sit down interviews with journalists with the news. hillary clinton did sit down with "people" magazine. that's not sort of a traditional news site. so what is the point of that? just to do a feeatury and she i doing entertainment formats and not news. it makes a lot of political sense, but it causes us journalists to be frustrated. a lot of questions we would like to ask clinton and trump in the final days of the election. unlikely they will make themselves available between now and election day. >> you have hillary clinton who has never been media hyperfriendly.
it's hard. the podesta e-mails trying to get her to come on the show. they kept saying no, no, no. donald trump has a different vibe going on. he has this piece of sound where he is literally talking to himself saying, stay on message, donald. he, if it had not been for the comey bomb, he would have been all over the tv this week. they are hiding him and he's complying. is that in a way its own criticism that they don't trust the guy to go out there and talk to the media? >> they have reason to be nervous about it because he's gone off when the narrative wasn't that bad for him and he turned it around. they're saying, stop. just don't say anything and don't blow the narrative. saying it out loud to himself so that we can hear his inner monologue. let's just play that for our viewers for a moment. >> feeling like it already, isn't it? just we've got to be nice and cool. nice and cool.
all right. stay on point, donald. stay on point. no side tracks, donald. nice and easy. ni nice. i've been watching hillary the last few days. she's totally unhinged. we don't want any of that. she has become unhinged. >> for anyone who ever wondered what is going on in his head, there's a window. >> sounds like puppet, no puppet. they're telling him, you're a puppet now. don't say anything else. >> he's got great comic timing. his humor. i find that to be so effective. >> very funny. >> something else they love about him, brian, they're not going to get it, him taking it on straight ahead. the man who said, don't listen to my campaign, listen to me. i will make my own case. if you want to hear it, get it straight. he is now by taking that advice out loud, he is also proving the point that he doesn't trust himself to sit where you are
right now and deal with what's going on in this race. >> you know, he's not talking about election rigging and the idea of a stolen election the way it was weeks ago. maybe he senses he has a real chance to win. he is trying to stay on message and trying to stay disciplined. dana bash has great headline on our website this morning. can teleprompter trump stay disciplined? five days is a long time for someone like donald trump. >> he was a little undisciplined with his katy and it sounds, again, like him bullying a woman. >> what is interesting he is not counterpunching. that's what he loves and thrives on and hillary clinton has given him some opportunities because she has been reviving. last night during the world series, she put out two ads that were negative about trump's character. he also put out two ads, but
they were more mixed. some negative about her and some about positive, that he would do. so, we know, he'sed ed admitted challenging it is not for him to hit back. >> clinton's ads were much darker overall. really just focusing on trump's own words. we know the campaign believes that has been effective. i thought during the world series nice for trump to have a positive message about himself. >> that's a big audience and they both went after this big audience. at this point in the campaign, i think people are tuning that out. people are so sick of this. i don't think they're reacting positively in the end. >> brian, kudos to you. sometimes one of us winds up encapsulating what is in everybody else's head and the fake news and the blogs and if it's the same thing as cnn.com and they're putting out, the reason people are so sick of it,
so much fake information. so much high hate and low information in so much of this and, often, if you're not on your game or you're so hungry for the message, you could get caught. like sean hannity did. what do we have to demonstrate what happened to him the other night? >> i think we just tell the story, basically. >> i thought we actually had sean. he got caught by a fantasy news site. >> he was tricked by one of these sites that said michelle obama and elizabeth warren and president obama had been unfollowing clinton on twitter. this was a suggestion they were all trying to run away from clinton at the final days. it was easy to prove if you went on twitter.com and hannity wanted it to be true. i said over the weekend, you have to triple check before you share something on facebook nowadays because a lot of sites out there that are trying to actively trick people. >> hannity isn't a journalist. people might think he's a journalist because -- >> he's not a journalist. >> that's giving him an excuse for not checking the way a
journalist would check. >> he's not a journalist, but a broadcaster. when you have a microphone on, you have a responsibility when that microphone is on. not to mislead your audience. >> do you? i think he has a responsibility to entertain your audience. journalists are different than broadcasters. >> that's it. >> there are no open minds in this race on the left or the right. they deal with it differently. but he's going for what people who are watching fox news which is confirmation bias. >> can we all restart next wednesday? >> it won't be over. >> erase our minds and start over. >> the genie doesn't go back in this bottle. >> deep into efforts to discredit. >> i like the idea of a mind eraser, though. brian, bill, stick around. we have some laughs for you with the election winding down. the comics are getting their final punches in. here are your late-night laughs right now. >> we hope we can make you laugh a little tonight, we really do, because it was national stress awareness day today.
and due to the election, plenty of people have something to be stressed about. in fact, when asked on a scale of one to ten how stressed they are right now, most voters punched the pollster in the face. >> a new poll finds that donald trump and hillary clinton are in a statistical tie just a week from election day. but on the bright side, trump is finally in a tie that is made in america. just as we said before, a week until the election and the polls just keep coming. in fact, a new poll finds that 73% of tinder users support hillary clinton over donald trump. which makes sense because people on tinder are used to looking at their options and going, i guess. >> trump is now campaigning in states like michigan and wisconsin, which haven't voted for a republican in decades and his supporters even seem to think he could win in a true blue state like minnesota, although their evidence for that claim is a little thin. >> newt gingrich has been
pointing out all day a statewide election of high school students in minnesota. 77,000 high school students voted. donald trump won. >> you think high school students voting for trump means he'll win minnesota? if high school votes determine who won our next president will be whoever brings weed to prom or as he's more commonly known, gary johnson. >> that is great. much needed. so, brian, do you believe that either of the candidates will be on "saturday night live" this weekend. >> i believe clinton will be. i don't know that for sure. i'm still trying to check it out. how could she pass up this chance? >> i think she will take the chance. >> what about trump? >> he has been on as a host. i don't think they'll bring him back. >> what about the pride of the program? >> if he was there, i guess they'd have to -- i think they'd put him on. i don't think that would keep him from being put on. he was the host.
it does balance it by having her on. >> they will have to give trump free air time in a bunch of different markets. >> just to be fair and balanced. >> "snl" has to be and balanced. >> only in certain markets. it's very weird. >> fascinating. thanks, guys. we're talking about the election in terms of what history might be made. great history made last night. the cubs won the world series. let's get to it. >> imagine with me what it would be like to have donald trump sitting in the oval office. >> stay on point, donald. stay on point. nice and easy. nice. >> everything he has said and done in his career and in this campaign is a pretty good preview of what's to come. >> do you think hillary will restore honesty in the government? i don't think so, folks. >> it's not often where you can move the ark of history.
don't let that chance slip away. what a game, what a series. >> a moment that many thought might never happen. >> this is "new day" with chris cuomo and alison camerota. >> 108-year shneid broken and world series champions. ending baseball's longest championship drought and what an epic game seven. had extra inning and rain delay and a home run that seemed to end it, but then cubs came out on top. >> so, cubs fans going wild through the night. the celebration of the century in wrigglivilleyville is still on. let's begin with andy sholes who was at the game in cleveland. andy? >> alisyn, what a game. arguably the greatest world
