that, but i want to go on. >> which republican candidate has the best chance of winning the general election? >> of the declared ones right now, donald trump. [ laughter ] >> everyone stopped laughing as it quickly became clear that trump was a category 5 political force, but for all his success, it appeared he would lose the white house. >> even if donald trump did win all of the tossup states, he would still lose. >> in the final moments, even donald trump thought he would lose. >> again, i was getting this news, which really sounded like it was sort of over. >> it would take a miracle for us to win, that is a quote from a senior advisor from donald trump's inner circle. >> full disclosure, i, like trump himself, believed hillary
10:33 am
clinton would be the victor. let's be clear, donald trump will lose the election. i got it wrong, i thought the evidence seemed overwhelming. forget his dismal polls last week, he has almost never been ahead of hillary clinton in the polls for a single week. i blew it and the fact that others did as well is no excuse. this is the story of why so many got it so wrong. >> it was donald trump versus almost all the experts and as of right now, it looks like donald trump was right. >> right now, a historic moment, we can now project the winner of the presidential race. >> an industry blind sided. and the country was blind sided. >> what does this mean for the polling industry? >> polling was wrong, we were wrong, everyone was wrong.
10:34 am
>> everyone still believed that the polls were way off, including donald trump. but that's not right, in fact almost all the national polls had the winners wrong, but the numbers were not far off. >> the polling showed it was a close rate and people chose to disregard that. >> the race tightened in the final days, giving clinton collectively a 3% lead. she ended up winning the popular vote by 2%, in other words so close, that it was well within the margin of error. even statistic nate silver got it wrong, but it was less wrong than anyone else. he gave trump a one in three chance of winning. >> if i said there was a one-third chance a plane's going to crash, you probably wouldn't get on that plane. >> clinton leading in north
10:35 am
carolina, clinton leading in ohio. clinton leading in nevada. i could go on and on and on. >> but some state polls were way off and those bad polls were in key states in the electoral college. >> and the wall comes tumbling down, this is the blue wall that hillary clinton had talked about. >> barack obama swept key states in the midwest, so it was assumed hillary clinton would win there too. wrong. >> when clinton had trouble leading in polls in ohio, that should have been a sign that there's something different about her coalition versus obama's coalition. >> clinton was counting on a summer of women and iminorities in the polls, but the only surge in the midwest was among white voters without college degrees. >> it used to be that college educated white people voted republican and working class white people voted democratic. >> so a social class profile of the two parties has flipped? >> it's completely flipped,
10:36 am
yeah. >> we won with poorly educated. i love the poorly educated. >> trump's margin of whites without a college degree was the largest of any candidate in 36 years. >> in the center of the stage tonight, businessman, donald trump. >> but perhaps the key reason why many believe trump couldn't win, no one even remotely like donald trump had ever run for president, much less won. >> and we need brain in this country to turn it around. >> he seemed impervious to negative stories. >> i could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot someone and everyone would still love me. >> donald trump, have you even read the united states constitution? >> like when he went after the parents of the guy killed in iraq, that's revolting. >> his wife was standing there, she didn't have anything to say,
10:37 am
she probably wasn't allowed to have anything to say, you tell me. >> what kind of politician does that? >> it was precisely because the media and the political class s was so appalled, that it was almost satisfying. >> they did it again, they're freaking out. >> then a video that some called the mother of all october surprises. >> when you're a star, they let you do it. you can do anything. >> whatever you want? >> grab them by the pussy. you can do anything. >> he's lost any hope of having any kind of moral authority to lead. >> the assumption was that he would hemorrhage support monk evangelicals and women. >> what he does with women, doesn't matter to me, what he does for this country does. >> it seemed the more traoutrags the accusation, the more angry electorate saw it as a way to change politics. >> if you were on the inside of the group, they may not like
10:38 am
some things about you, but fundamentally, especially if it's a fight, we're on your side, you're on ours, you're going to stand up for us. >> perhaps the reason hillary clinton looked stronger than she was. look at the number of undecided voters in 2016, compared to 2012. usually undecideds break about 50/50, but in key states, late deciding voters broke heavily for donald trump. and with little over a week to go until the election, one event may have made all the difference. the comey letter. fbi director james comey sent a letter to congress announcing he was investigating a new batch of emails from hillary clinton's serv server. trump had hammered the email issue again and again to great effect. >> she deleted the emails, she has to go to jail. >> after the election, you wrote, hillary clinton would
10:39 am
probably be president if fbi director james comey had not sent a letter to congress on october 28. >> yes. >> what's the evidence for that? >> that she was winning by about six points before the letter, and after the letter came out, it reduced the lead by 3% and that's small enough that you can lose the electoral college. >> and that, of course, is exactly what happened. >> i won, i mean i became president. and the wolf huffed and puffed... like you do sometimes, grandpa? well, when you have copd,

10:45 am
want to take this call, because she realizes that this is the official. finally reluck tanly, she takes the phone, she puts it up to her head and says, mr. president, i'm sorry. >> thank you all. >> you could see the pain, the complete earthquake. >> i'm still having a hard time getting used to stands on this earth right now. >> weunder estimated. >> the most unbelievable thing that any of us have seen in our lifetime. >> we were dead wrong. >> we got the numbers wrong, we didn't see this coming. >> so how did it happen? how did clinton lose the presiden presidency? and how did so few people see what was coming? well this man saw it very clearly. >> we started talking to people and i said, we got to warn them that they're messing this up, they're [ bleep ] it up. >> david beatrice was the canary
10:46 am
in the coal mine. >> i said, boy, she's in trouble. >> so my consultant and i wrote a letter. >> that letter went up clinton's chain of command, that they were losing ohio voters that had always been democrats. >> if they would have paid attention to this letter, we would have president hillary clinton. >> they said i can't support her, he wants to bring back our jobs. >> they didn't care about all this massage nisic stuff. all they heard was job, jobs, jobs. >> we're going to bring jobs back from china. >> to pennsylvania, to michigan and all across this land, we're going to bring our jobs back. >> and he told them that, and we weren't giving them sustenance.
10:47 am
>> beatrice said that his democrats never exactly understood what hillary clinton was for. >> they are working class people who think the democratic party has left them. >> and of course we know those white working class voters were the tipping point. >> to understand just how big a deal this is, let's go back a bit. back to the 1970s. >> we have never forgotten that the democratic party is well named, it's a party of the people. >> jimmy carter was for sercert, a man of the people. a peanut farmer from plains, georgia. >> their brand image is the party of the people, the party of working people specifically. >> it started earlier, actually, with franklin delano roosevelt, it was actually the white working class that put him in the oval office four times.
10:48 am
>> they don't know who they are as a party. >> all that changed with a democrat who actually had a unique appeal to the white working class. >> in the name of the hard working americans who make up our forgotten middle class, i proudly accept your nomination for president of the united states. >> bill clinton is the sort of emblematic figure of the transition of the democratic party, from the party that cares about working class middle class people, to a party that is very much concerned with, you know, the innovation, economy, wall street and all that. >> frank's right, the democratic party did change during bill clinton's presidency. bill clinton made the party a bigger tent. and into that big democratic tent, went the elites of america. its lawyers and doctors and
10:49 am
stockbrokers. but let's remember, clinton essentially tied his republican opponents in the white working class demographic in both 1992 and 1996. so why did the white working class vote for bill and not for hillary? >> what they have become over the last couple of decades, is the party of this professional class, this white educated upper class of people. >> hillary clinton fits into this class perfectly. >> she went to a fancy law school, married a guy from a fancy law school, lives in the places where those people would gather. >> if it sounds like he's simply describing rich people here, brooks session there's a very important distinction between rich entrepreneurs, people who create companies and make things and employ people and professionals.
10:50 am
