tv At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan CNN November 3, 2016 9:00am-10:01am PDT
job, you got to have a president and a congress who sees immigrants, not criminals or rapists, but people who have the same dreams and aspirations and who care about this country and who want to contribute and give back to it. my point is, your vote matters. it's because of you that 20 million people have health insurance that didn't have it. it's because of you that young people who got pell grants and could go to college who couldn't before. it's because of you a marine can serve the country. young dreamers have come out of the shadows and are serving our country and are going to school. it's because of you that we made this progress. so florida and young people especially, i'm asking you, the same thing i asked w. eight years ago. i'm asking you to believe.
not just in my ability to change things one person to change things. i'm not just asking you to believe in hillary's ability to change things. i'm asking you to believe in your ability to change things. you remember my slogan wasn't yes i can, it was yes we can. and i'm not on the ballot this time. but fairness is on the ballot. decency is on the ballot. justice is on the ballot. all the progress we made is on the ballot. immigration reform is on the ballot. higher minimum wage is on the ballot. equal pay for equal work is on the ballot. democracy's on the ballot. hillary clinton will move us forward if you give her a chance. if we win florida, we will win this election.
it is in your hands. so go out there and vote. get your friends to vote. get your family to vote. get your cousins, neighbors and co-workers to vote. this is the moment where america makes a stand about who we are and what we believe. tell them there's a moment we reject cynicism and reject fear. this is the moment we choose hope. we choose hope. choose hope. choose hope. choose hope. choose hope. go out there and vote and if you do, we will elect hillary clinton the next president. we will elect patrick murphy the next senator. we'll continue this amazing journey. we'll show the world why america's the greatest nation on earth. i love you guys, bye-bye. [ cheers and applause ]
>> the president of the united states, barack obama, campaigning for hillary clinton, miami, florida now. he's on his way next to jacksonville. welcome to "inside politics." i'm john king. we'll move on to another busy day on the campaign trail. big day for the president. with me to share their reporting, talk about the busy day ahead, lisa layer of the associated press. ed o'keefe of "the washington post." let's start with the president. please put the pictures back up. he's had a big rally. his main mission, early voting. get early voting if you're hillary clinton. will agree with a lot of what he said but not what he said at the very end. the question is, can he translate his popularity into votes. we'll see more early voting later in the week. early is mixed when you look at it. he's having fun. hillary clinton will not be able to fault his effort. the question is can he be
successful. >> well, that is the big question. polls showed a slight drop-off in democratic enthusiasm. enthusiasm after this latest comey/fbi letter came out. and that's exactly what her campaign is worried about. they're worried their supporters simply won't show up. particularly black voters who we saw in early voting across several states have not turned out in the same margins they did for obama. that was calculated into the clinton campaign's plans but not quite at the drop-off we've seen. so that's why you see president barack obama out there, barn storming all these crucial swing states. that's why you see hillary clinton doing interview after interview on radio stations and programs that target african-american voters. they want to make sure their people come out and preferably come out as early as possible. >> if you digest overnight, the next five days to election day, don't invest in any one poll, but if you follow the polls, one overnight shows colorado a dead heat. that will be a surprise to most
people. one overnight shows new hampshire. a dead heat. that will be a move for some people. so we're in -- whether we invest or believe in individual polls or not. we're in a volatile climate. the race does get tighter at the end. you have the president out there and they're looking at the map. if she wins florida, he can't. the president's going to go to jacksonville next. we'll take you to see donald trump in jacksonville. then he goes to north carolina. get used to this. florida, north carolina. north carolina, florida. florida, north carolina. north carolina, florida. the democrats know if she wins one of those two, you can't get trump to 270. >> exactly but, you know, again you're seeing pennsylvania, they're also trying to hang on to. >> right. >> that's where michelle obama, hillary clinton and bill clinton will be on monday. >> and melania trump today. >> melania trump today. there is a big appeal to women. you've seen the gender gap shrink in several of these polls. which is why you have hillary clinton talking again about donald trump's treatment women. they're really going for that
core constituency which is turning out to be different for hillary clinton. the hillary clinton coalition is seeing more hispanics, more women. obama hasn't proven he can get out the same coalition for anyone else but him. so it seems like they're not -- well, he is making a big pitch. they're not taking chances. >> it is more personal this time. in 2010 and 2014, the president did not campaign as much. a lot of places, he was not welcome. you didn't see that personal connection to hillary clinton. but let's listen, before you jump in, this is the president talking about the importance of early voting. the two obama elections, he won electoral college landslides both times. both times, he lost in ballots cast on election day. early voting is critical to democrats. president trying to convince people if you haven't done it yet, or if your mail-in ballot's sitting on the coffee table, get it done. >> now, the the good news is, you don't have to wait until election day to vote.
what does that say up there? i'm sorry, i can't hear you what does it say up there? you know, i'm still not hearing it. what? vote early. if you are registered, you can vote right now. at any early voting location. in fact, there's one just ten minutes away at the international mall branch library. >> he went on to read the address. this is the president of the united states who read the street address of the early voting site. that makes sense. that's how granule they want to get. there's buses waiting outside if people want to go today. it's amusing, it's entertaining. but this is critical, an estimated 40% of americans this cycle. it was a little over 30% last time. an estimated 40% of americans are going to vote early. either absentee voting or showing up for early voting. if you look at the recent
tightening, what we know is it's important to democrats, even more important, right? >> because republicans are seeing increased levels of early voting in various states whether it's florida, north carolina, iowa as well. one thing -- a few things to keep in mind when it comes to this, though, a lot of emphasis is being put on the final weekend coming up. it's not only traditionally a good weekend for african-american turnout. but there's a lot of emphasis on hispanic turnout. i think this will be the cycle when we really start to see them bake into the democratic coalition. i think there's reason to believe, given the registration numbers in places like orange county and pinellas county, hillsborough county, democrats may now be able to rely even more than they have in the past on hispanihispanics. the fact that he'll go as far north as new hampshire by monday is an indication that they still think he's viable and a
reputable surrogate worth having out there. >> proof they think they need every last target they can get. to this point about early voting, republicans promised after '08 to get better. they promised after 2012 they would get better. they tell us they're better now. if you look at data in places like ohio, florida, north carolina, they may not be winning everywhere but they do seem more competitive in the race. if this race gets decided based on who has the best nuts and bolts, the republicans have what it takes? >> well, that's the question, the rnc might have it but the trump campaign didn't bring a lot of that to the table. the question is how much the rnc has going for them. there's a couple cycles where they have some time to learn about this. got a little bit better about this. the lack of enthusiasm for hillary is helpful to them on this front. look, i think the president can be marginally helpful with the base of the democratic party. he has fun out there. fun is not the same as supereffective as we've seen in a couple of cycles. he's entertaining to watch but he's not getting the job done. but margins matter in this race.
margin will help with the race. we've got some time. >> i think it is important when we talk about this. yes, the race is tightening. yes, hillary clinton is -- everyone agrees, probably going to lose iowa but it is favorables are still overwhelming. she has significant pathway tossing get to 270. she has an extensive ground game they've been building for two years. accord to the hacked wikileaks e-mails, they started building out in november before she even announce heard run in april. so, you know, she still has some structure advantages in this race, no matter how tight the national polls and some of the state polls may look. >> we're going to keep an eye on those. we had seven out yesterday from battleground states. you get a little dizzy looking at the polls. we have donald trump standing by live in jacksonville, florida, duval county, critical in florida.
president obama will be close on its heels there. the surrogates spread out all across the country. exclusive here, first run on "enside politics," a brand-new trump ad, upping the ante against what he calls crooked hillary. won't want to miss this one against a star player. my accountant... ...he's almost like my dad in this weird way. yeah, i'm proud of you. you actually did some of the things i asked you to do the other day (laughs).

donald trump: "i know more about isis than the generals do, believe me." vo: and calm judgment. donald trump: "and you can tell them to
24 242 of the electioral votes needed to become president. let's take a peek. here are three big states in the blue wall. michigan, pab pa and wisconsin. at the moment, hillary clinton leads by seven, five and six. how does that compare? here's michigan in 2012. it was a nine-point race. it's a little closer this time. let's go other to wisconsin. right here. you can see that right here. seven-point race then. six-point race now. that's not a deep crack in the blue wall. let's try over here, bring down pennsylvania. pennsylvania, five points. back in 2012, five points right now. so there are no obvious cracks in the blue wall just yet. yes, there's some tension in the clinton campaign. trump thinks he can break it by saying she can't be trusted. >> she is a crooked one. there's no question. crooked hillary clinton. that term has really stuck. has anyone seen crooked hillary clinton today? that's going to be a great term for a president, right?
boy, oh, boy, what a mess. >> what a mess trump says there. before i bring you guys into the conversation, i want to show our viewers, here's a brand-new ad the trump campaign is putting in his mix today. can donald trump crack the wall? you heard him there say crooked hillary. watch this new ad. the first time it's been aired here on "inside politics." it has a star
player the trump campaign believes adds a little oomph here. >> hillary clinton under fbi investigation again after her e-mails were found on pervert anthony weiner's laptop. america's most sensitive secrets unlawfully sent, received and exposed by hillary clinton, her staff and anthony weiner. hillary cannot lead a nation while crippled by a criminal investigation. >> scorched earth in the final days. she has some tough new ads up too. in terms of the -- donald trump's ads bringing anthony weiner, pervert anthony weiner,
trying to make the case if you elect her president, you'll have an ongoing investigation. you'll have all this clinton drama. it will never end. why would you do that? >> well, it's not a terrible argument. you can count on donald trump to say "pervert anthony weiner" just straight-up in an ad. there are historically low tv spending numbers this time around so you won't see quite the flood of this type of ad. but the argument is not terrible. i think the anthony weiner part of the story actually reaches different kinds of voters because it takes too a little more gossipy area. or he may just want to say "pervert anthony weiner" in an ad. >> it's not terrible but it's not totally true. we don't know whether hillary clinton's e-mails were found or just e-mails between him and his estranged wife huma abedin. if the goal here is to dampen democratic turnout, which i think is the goal of this ad, then it probably is successful. i think it's problematic for
hillary on two counts. he has to win the election. this could hurt her. second of all, if she does win the election, she enters it with these historically high unfavorability rating, historically high untrustworthy ratings. that makes it hard to unify the country. after what's been this very ugly divisive, pervert-laden race. >> right. >> so puts her in a tough spot even if she wins. >> please. >> i was just going to mention, huma abedin's face being in that ad. she hasn't been on the trail. she's been laying low. she was at a fund-raiser but she hasn't -- her -- she hasn't been on the trail with hillary. her behind hillary in all those pictures, it just reminds people. you have to wonder, should hillary actually be successful here, what is her role going to be because she has been vilified fairly or unfairly by the right at this point. >> i think the question, does she bring in the people, if you're reading wikileaks, if you know the history is, the people
at the state department, some go back to the bill clinton white house, does she bring him into this white house, transparency, honesty, did she learn a lesson is the question. both of these candidates are avoiding us, avoiding questions in the final days of the campaign. on this question we started at on the blue wall. the trump campaign says mexico's in play. they say wisconsin's in play. are those states closer now than they were ten day, two weeks ago? in most of them, i haven't seen any public polling in new mexico in the last several days but in the ones we just showed you in pennsylvania, michigan, they're essentially where the romney/obama race was. it's gotten back to quote/unquote where the democrats say it's supposed to be. >> that's about more like the clinton's ability to close here. thanks in part to james comey. actually the idea that the country hasn't shifted ipts political preferences, despite trump. i would be stunned if he won new mexico. i can understand why they think
they have a chance in new mexico. we could play back the tape from eight weeks ago. we have a chance in new jersey. we have a chance in pennsylvania. >> all these huge rallies in pennsylvania. >> she's now running ads in colorado. they say it's because they have money to burn. trust me, they could -- >> no one has that much money. >> they're not doing it because they have money to burn. we'll get to donald trump in florida. how much it's jumped up. nothing at all in wisconsin and maine. now they're putting up money. they're doing that in those states. i guess we're not going to show you that. let's show you jacksonville, florida. >> the fbi is conducting a criminal investigation into hillary clinton's pay for play corruption. during her tenure. as secretary of state. in other words, the fbi is investigating. how hillary clinton put the
office of secretary of state up for sale in violation of federal law. the investigation is described as a high priority. it's far reaching and has been going on for more than one year. it was reported that an avalanche of information is coming in. the fbi agents say their investigation is likely to yield an indictment. [ audience chanting "lock her
up" ] >> but just remember the system is rigged. just remember that. and reports also show the political leadership at the department of justice is trying to protect hillary clinton and is interfering with the fbi's criminal investigation. by comparison, four star general just last week, james cartright, highly respected, is in very serious trouble for doing a tiny fraction of what clinton did. may go to jail for up to five years. think of it. general cartwright, last week, four-star general, respected by everybody, a tiny, tiny fraction
may go to jail for now five years. general petraeus' life and reputation has been destroyed for doing nothing, nothing by comparison to what hillary clinton did. she shouldn't even be allowed to run for the office of president. she shouldn't be allowed. and that is where the system is rigged. she shouldn't be allowed. it was also reported that the laptops of clinton's top aides which had been slated for destruction were not, in fact, destroyed. good job by the fbi. and that the fbi has been successfully using them to gather information for their criminal investigation. further, they have found new
e-mails as part of the 650,000 e-mails just recently found. can you imagine 650,000. see what do these people do? no wonder nothing gets done in government. 650,000. i guess she'll say those 650,000 -- remember the 33? well, the 650,000, also the wedding and some yoga, right? finally, it is believed that no less than five foreign intelligent agencies successfully hacked into clinton's illegal insecure server which contained classified information creating an ongoing security threat to the united states. think of what happened to so many people for doing so little by comparison.
think of it. hillary clinton has engaged in a massive, far-reaching criminal conduct and equally for-reaching cover-up. she created an illegal e-mail server to shield and guard her activity. it's so simple. so simple. should have happened a long time ago, folks. now we're going through phase two which sounds like it's even worse than phase one. should have happened in phase one. but she was protected by the department of justice. she illegally transmitted confidential information and then lied about it to congress. she illegally destroyed federal records including 33,000 e-mails after receiving a congressional subpoena. and shep made 13 phones
disappear, some with a hammer. who in this room has gotten rid of a phone and then smashed the hell out of it with a hammer? raise your hand. i see one hand over there. i see a hand there. what business are you in? want to know. no, i don't want to know, i don't want to meet him. she engaged in corrupt pay for play at the state department. for personal enrichment. she lied to the fbi and she lied to the american people many, many times. remember, she lied 39 times. i don't recall. i don't recall. well, those are all lies because she recalled every one of them. these are sad events for our country. a high-ranking government official. threatening national security. and engaging in a massive
criminal cover-up. if she were to win, it would create unprecedented constitutional crisis. here we go again with clinton. you remember the impeachment and the problems. she's likely to be underp under investigation for many, many years. also leakly to conclude in a criminal trial. this is not what we need in this country, folks. we need somebody that's going to go to work to bring our jobs back, to take care of our military, to strengthen up our borders. this is not what we need. it's going to be a mess. and they say it. they say it. this is going to be a mess for many years to come before they figure it all out. we don't need that.
we need a president that's going to go in and do the job. and i just left, by the way, miami, and in leaving, i see air force one. so i said to myself, i wonder who that could be. and it's our president. and he's down here campaigning for crooked hillary. now, why -- why isn't he back in the office? sometimes referred to as the oval office. why isn't he back in the white house bringing our jobs back? and helping our veterans? why? why isn't he back working? he's campaigning every day and i actually think, considering she is under criminal investigation,
i think he's actually got a conflict. and one of the things it taught us, wikileaks, he knew she had a lot of wrong things going on, you know that, that also came out. obama knew what was going on, by the way, just in case you didn't know. he knew. this guy ought to be back in the office working. he's not going to be there very long, thank goodness. but he ought to be back in the office working. we don't win any wars in our country. we don't win with our military. we don't win on trade. this guy got to get back to the office and stop campaigning. if we win on november 8th, we will once again have a government of by and for the people. real change begins with
immediately repealing and replacing obamacare. it's just been anounced that the residents of florida are going to experience a massive double digit premium hike. who's got their number yet? does anybody know? should i tell you? do you want me to depress everybody? just put your head down, start crying and leave. i won't tell you. i don't want to tell you. you know why? because if i do, you'll be so depressed. i don't like people leaving a speech early crying. you're not going to like it, folks. in the great state of arizona, though, as an example, premiums are going up more than 116%. and it doesn't work. obamacare doesn't work. i'm repealing it. we were going to replace it with something so much better and so much cheaper. hill rim's going to double up.
over 90% of the count yip ies i florida are losing obamacare insurers next year. think of it. good luck in that negotiation. in minnesota where the premium increase will be close to 60%, the democratic governor said the affordable care act is no longer affordable. oh, did he take heat. him and bill clinton. did bill clinton take heat? he said, it's crazy, obamacare. he said it's crazy. they lied to us. the president lied to us. 28 times. he said you can keep your doctor, you can keep your plan. he kept lying and lying and lying. premiums are -- >> republican nominee for president donald trump campaigning in jacksonville, florida. when he left miami, he saw air force one. guess what, air force one coming to jacksonville. president obama shadowing donald trump on the campaign trail. let's talk a little about what we just heard. i feel like the judge in "law & order." if you were with us when we first went to donald trump, a
lot of what he was saying about the investigations of hillary clinton. there's an indictment coming. things like that. are hearsay i think the judge would say. a lot of leaks, some of them against hillary clinton, some in favor of hillary clinton. frankly, it's embarrassing. there's a bit a partisan feud going on behind the scenes in the justice department. a lot of what donald trump said there is we don't know if it's true or not. let's put it the that way. he's reading off a teleprompter. so they have decided this lengthy dissertation on she's crooked hillary, she's under investigation, and i think the -- while some of what he said there is either hearsay or we don't know if it's true or it's unconfirmed. to the point about a constitutional crisis. if she wins, do you really want to do this. you have a candidate, a president at that point, still under investigation. they have decided to spend a lot of time on this in the final days hoping it sways people. >> do you really want to do this argument was one i think a lot
of his vanquished republican opponents were ready to make against her, should they have become the nominee last spring and last summer. they would have said, we're going to have these kinds problems all over again. he never got to that because he was insulting everyone and creating headaches for himself. >> it worked. >> it did work. it did work. in the primary, questionable whether it's worked in the general. to be talking about that, to be talking about obamacare and to just simply be attacking the president will work to keep your republican base in place i think. and by leading with this, look, i think this it the ad, the argument he was making earlier this week, this just means more trouble from the clintons is one that could very well resonate and tip the scales as we've talked about, suburban philadelphia, suburban denver, you know, and a few of these other states. >> one of the other trump messages you hear down ballot. republicans picking up and reverberating. haven't really heard that this cycle. where you have him being the actual top of the ticket and giving cues to other people. >> we always talk about the
inconsistency between trump and down ballot republicans and how that can affect the final days of a campaign. who are you going to vote for if you're a moderate or swing voter. are we going to work together. so to that degree is staying on prompter, it's not the most exciting stuff but is that maybe the key for republican success. >> i think over several days he's been not bad at this. one argument about the clintons in general, which basically boils down to a gut feeling many have, including some voting for. which are clintons are shady. now they're getting in trouble for it. they will continue to do that. that's a real thing people believe for a reason. number two is the obamacare argument. premiums are going up by an average of 25% in the obamacare federal exchanges. importantly, the people who feel it are middle class voters. those who are not as subsidized. >> there's no question, first the administration and then secretary clinton did not do a
good enough job. they did not prepare people this was coming. make the case the republicans are just as complicit because they won't work to change it. they didn't make that argument at all and they're praying the price. if you're a fan of rally trump, whether you don't like donald trump, if you're just a fan of the entertainment of the trump rallies we saw throughout the primary, then you don't like what you're seeing in recent days because he's reading from the prompter. listen to donald trump last night essentially making fun of himself. >> we're going to be nice and cool, nice and cool. right? stay on point, donald, stay on point. no side tracks, donald, nice and easy, nice. because i've been watching hillary the last few days. she's totally unhinged. we don't want any of that. >> especially when you add the hat. like self-therapy by donald trump with the baseball cap. >> it's not something you hear from candidates very often, that inner monologue coming out.
look, he has become the candidate the republicans have long wanted him to be. here in the final days. the quoestion is whether it's to late. >> do you like, what are we a fan of, rally trump or zen donald? >> zen donald reminds me of me on my wedding day, stay focused, it will be fine. even though there's a problem with the flowers. reminds me of that. >> is the bar open? >> that too. >> all right, everybody, sit tight, up next, melania trump is about to deliver her first speech in months but can she deliver more votes that donald trump needs from a very key demographic? allstate. with accident forgiveness they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid. indeed. it's good to be in, good hands.
as we get into the stretch and things get tight, one of the things i focus on, the battlegrounds within the battle grouns. duval county, florida. the republican nominee democrat in the jacksonville area today. in 2012, look, it's red. so why is obama there today? the margins matter. if you want to keep a battleground state close, sometimes you go into a
republican area. look at that, now pull it out to statewide. because he kept it close here, did what he had to do here and especially down here, this was the closest state of them all in 2012 and president obama carried it. now, back in history. back to 2004. right. john kerry did what he had to do here. did okay up here. but watch. back up to duval county. he got blown out. the margins matter in these big counties where the democrats have to keep it closer. hillary clinton has to keep it closer or she will lose. that's one battleground within the battleground. now, up to pennsylvania, to win pennsylvania, it's a big complicated state. for democrats to win, run it up in philadelphia and then win the suburbs. more recent races, in interest of, in 2012, president obama ran it up in the suburbs, won the state comfortably. the last time, george h.w. bush won the suburbs and he won the state. close presidential elections are
won in the suburbs. look what's happening. hillary clinton running it up big among white college graduates. that was a mitt romney constituency. in the philadelphia suburbs, i just said critical, this is a brand-new poll, hillary clinton, by 20 points. if she wins pennsylvania, she's probably president. on the stage today, come back to 2016, right here, chester county, far-out suburbs in the collar around philadelphia, melania trump trying to make a personal appeal to women here, women who might be thinking about voting for hillary clinton. vote for my husband. >> he's tough when he has to be. but he's also kind and fair and caring. these kindness is not always noted but it is there for all to see. that is one reason i fell in love with him. his children have been cared for
and meant mentored to the exten even his adversaries admit they're an amazing testament to who he is as a man and a father. >> big moment anyway when your spouse is a surrogate but we really haven't seen her since the convention. we know the problem donald trump has with college educated women, traditionally republican constituency. swing voters generally. whether it's the philadelphia suburbs. whether it's the research triangle in pennsylvania. is melania the secret weapon in the final days? >> she's impressive, she speaks i think five languages. that does not mean she's relatable. i think she will be welcomed with open armed by voters in the base. i think she's done a disservice by the campaign and could have been impressive on the sage at the rnc.
>> this will affect her today, no matter what she says, somebody's going to find a praise and say somebody spoke that in 1972. >> she has some limited relatability. an interesting figure. >> you can't just pop someone out in the final five days of an election. she's not a character. she's a character, you're right, people are fascinated by. but not one that women know, women voters know or understand the story about. i think to make a koppeling case as a surrogate you've got to have a narrative. >> here's the problem. are theyssigning her mission impossible? she's going to say in the speech today, mitt romney just beat barack obama in this county. she's going to say we need to teach our youth kindness. that's wonderful. it's great to hear from somebody. the problem is, can she sell that when her husband has a history of saying this --
>> i love running against crooked hillary. i love that. i mean, so much. in the case of lying ted cruz, lying ted. rosie o'donnell's disgusting both inside and out. you take a look at her, she's a slop. we're all a little chubby but rosie's just worse than most of us. >> this elizabeth warren, i call her goofy, elitz beth warren, she's one of the worst senators in the entire united states senate. >> kind of flunks the kindness respect, compassion, test. >> he also called her pock honoress which is bigoted. >> tough mission for melania. >> charity. donald trump, there is no evidence he's given any substantial money to charity it that's what your colleague has been investigating this entire general election.
you're right, it is a mission impossible because that doesn't align with the person we've seen on camera for last how many months. >> it's a big wasted opportunity and it fell apart because of the plagiarism scandal. >> i agree, she is a compelling figure. it makes her in some ways more mysterious. we're going to bring you that speech a little later today. up next, a sneak peek into our reporter's notebooks including a brand-new poll of latino voters. what could it signal for the future, not of this race but the republican party? re you can earn bonus cash back to a few places... ...and those places keep changing every few months. the quicksilver card from capital one doesn't do any of that. with quicksilver you earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere. leave complicated behind. what's in your wallet?
we asked people to write down the things they love to do most on these balloons. travel with my daughter. roller derby. ♪ now give up half of 'em. do i have to? this is a tough financial choice we could face when we retire. but, if we start saving even just 1% more of our annual income... we could keep doing all the things we love. prudential. bring your challenges. one day a rider made a decision.
if you only knew what happens here during the break. let's get across the table, ask our great reporters to give you a sneak peek into their notebooks, out ahead of the political news. >> so george p. bush made news this week when he said he wasn't quite sure how members of his family were voting. his grandfather and uncle could potentially be voting for hillary clinton. of course he's referring to the two former president bushes and this is a pretty striking remarkable thing. he is talking about the two past
republicans not voting for the republican nominee for president. i think it's a reminder of amid all our focus on florida polls and what's the ground game in pennsylvania and how does african-american turnout look in detroit, there's something really big happening right now with the republican party and it remains entirely unclear how they unify, if they unify, after this election, so we're in, my friends, for some tumultuous times post this very ugly and tumultuous election. so my advice is brace yourself. >> i want to count. it will take a few days after the election. the number of other republicans who get write-in votes. mary katherine? >> i'm making the case for not freaking out. now i make it about voter suppression. in my home state of north carolina, there's been complaints about early voting and allegedly keeping black voters out with the lower hours. if you look at the raw numbers, north carolina's early voting hours up, sites are up. even in the most complained about county, gillford county,
overall hours are up and sites are up and turnout is up, at least today. let's everybody calm down. >> facts, bring facts into the conversation? >> i'm doing it. >> jackie. >> kind of jumping off that, every year, you hear they're sick of the ads, it's the worst part. well, you know, this year it's not that bad, guys. unless you live in florida, in 2012, $173 million went into that state between both campaigns. this year, we're at 120 -- about 128 million. in my home state of ohio, i hear it either year, they're just sick of them. it's amazing how little it is. $150 million spent in 2012. this year, 71 million. so, you know, guys, while it's tough, you don't have it as bad as you used to. >> sorry about your indians, it was a great series. >> it was a great series. >> always got the cavs.
"the washington post" have a new poll out this hour which measures hispanic support. no surprise, hillary clinton still on top, 67%, to trump's 19% overall. but diving into the numbers a little bit. if you add up trump's hispanic support, with the willingness of others to at least consider a generic republican presidential candidate in the future, that's more than hatch lalf the latinot there t there. it signals the party does have an opportunity. would a marco rubio or a jeb bush be able to peel away support? this suggests it could be in the future. >> pretty simple math. if they don't get it this psycy, they better get it by the next cycle. the big surprises like florida, north carolina, to a lesser degree ohio, they're understandably getting the most attention and most visits from the candidate and their
surrogates. but donald trump plans two visits in these final days to tiny new hampshire. the granite state may offer just four electoral votes but they are the final four in two trump campaign scenarios. one where he just crosses the finish line ton victory. and another where he -- both he and clinton fall just short of the 270 neemded to win. yes, they think about these things. in that case, the election will be settled by the house of representatives. there's a significant never trump faction. quote, smoke and mirrors. because they have to send him somewhere. that's how one veteran put it. but team trump is convinced new hampshire can be won. it has convinced itself new hampshire is essentially to its electoral map. most unhappy, definitely unhappy and currently unhappy, new hampshire republican senator kelly ayotte who's in a close re-election race and views trump as toxic. she was hoping he would focus on the bigger battlegrounds and
stay away from new hampshire in the final days so she could get some separation. sorry, senator, not happening. that's it for "inside politics." hope to see you right back here, same time tomorrow. after a quick break, "wolf" is next. elf? american express open cards can help you take on a new job, or fill a big order or expand your office and take on whatever comes next. find out how american express cards and services can help prepare you for growth at open.com.
