clock p.m. eastern and throughout the following 24 hours. watch live and on-demand or listen to our live coverage. this headline, a final poll, hillary clinton leads donald trump by three as voters lock in. thank you for being with us. number ofy, one of a new polls looking at the state of the race. what have you learned? >> we have three new national polls today. our poll has hillary clinton had of donald trump by three points. we're seeing similar numbers -- the latest abc news, washington post tracking
5:51 pm
call which cannot early this morning has hillary clinton ahead of donald trump by five points. what we're finding is hillary clinton with that low-to-mid single-digit lead is consistent but the one thing that has been striking is in our poll and the nbc news wall street journal poll is the large share of voters learning up behind the -- lining up behind the third-party candidate or who are still undecided. still ahead. both candidates face these ceilings. lower.trump is >> we have been so immersed in this campaign for so long. why there arender still undecided voters. how do you answer that?
5:52 pm
>> you don't have to look far past both candidates both low favorability ratings. we found better favorability --ings for hillary clinton hillary clinton was viewed favorably by 40% of orders and donald trump only by 37% of voters. ultimately they are only able to attract so many voters to cast their ballots. the rest are stuck between the third-party candidates or they are voting -- at this point in the campaign you have two candidates for this disliked raises questions about whether they will stay home. hillary clinton does defeat donald trump by a low-to-mid single digit margin. will she get closer to 60%? barack obama and mitt romney at
5:53 pm
this stage in the campaign -- it to basically 50 to 48, 49 48. were not that many undecided voters left between them. it onehen let me take step further. the state of american politics is what? based on your survey and others you have been pouring over, what is your answer? ready to moveis on past the election and these candidates. it is striking to me how low both of their personal image ratings and favorability, ratings and other characteristics like honesty and trustworthiness -- both score lower on that. striking to go back
5:54 pm
and look. the last time we had a presidential race with no -- both presidential nominees were really liked and admired. they both had favorability ratings in the 50's and into the low 60's, both john mccain and barack obama. byers are disillusioned these two candidates in particular. i think these personalities are so well known and unique that one of the things that will be interesting to me moving past election day is how much we returned to what we have seen of the equilibrium and how the voters view politics and politicians and how much we have seen this become the new normal especially for the next president who will enter with
5:55 pm
some of the lowest approval ratings on day one that we have seen in a long time. >> on the calendar, donald trump and hillary clinton's schedule is crazy but both will be in michigan and north carolina on monday. >> these are the key states. michigan is a place where you would have said both hillary clinton and donald trump will be spending time. president obama will be there tomorrow morning -- i would have been very surprised but michigan is a state that does not have significant early voting so the extent to which the race has tightened over the last two weeks that is a state that hillary clinton me needed to worry about. it is a state with 16 electoral votes. that no republican has carried since 1988.
5:56 pm
pennsylvania has been a key firewall for her. similarly, only election day voting. you have to have an excuse to vote absentee. that is a state where the stakes are high on one day. with her running mate, with her husband, president and mrs. obama as well, the whole gang making their big final push. in north carolina, this is a state where hillary clinton will make inroads on the mitt romney numbers from 2012. both candidates can point to pluses. >> stephen shepherd who is a reporter for politico. latest online at politico.
