the good people of denton texas live on top of a huge reserve of natural gas potentially worth billions which to some people in the state makes it strange that that down wants to keep anyone from getting to it. >> reporter: denton, texas north of dallas looks like any other typical suburb in america, that is until you notice this. natural gas wells right next to schools, businesses and subdivisions. >> they can put them less than 200 feet from homes. that's our battle. >> reporter: more than 270 wells have popped up across the city because denton happens to sit on one of the largest natural gas reserves in the u.s. one of the ways to mine that precious natural resource is through hydraulic fracturing or fracking. it's when water, sand and chemicals are injected into the ground and the high pressure causes shale rock to crack
3:24 pm
releasing the trapped natural gas. this process is controversial. it requires millions of gallons of water and some experts believe the chemicals are toxic raising environmental and health concerns. >> we've had headaches, nose bleeds. we kept the kids inside during the torment of the fracking and the flaring. >> reporter: but a recent study funded by the national science foundation and duke university found that poorly constructed wells are the problem, not fracking itself. researchers studied wells in texas and pennsylvania. they found the ones that were not installed and cemented properly were to blame for contaminating nearby wells. nearly 59% of voters supported a measure to ban fracking here. but the other 41% say the industry creates jobs and
3:25 pm
infused some $30 million into the local economy and problems are not wide spread. >> we have a company that's doing a bad job, then don't let them drill anymore but don't ban or hurt everyone in the industry because of one situation or two. >> reporter: lawsuit haves been filed challenging the constitutionality of the measure. the texas oil and gas association represents some 5,000 energy companies and seeking an injection to stop enforcement of the ban. in a statement, the group says a ban denies many mineral interest owners the right to gain value from their property despite the state's public policy in favor of developing natural resources. now voters in parts of ohio and in california also passed similar referendums this week banning fracking in their communities. this as it plays out here in texas courts now. bret? >> casey segol live in dallas,

now some news from the political grapevine. as is always the case with election night, tuesday closed the book on campaign dramas and contentious plot lines that developed among candidates throughout the election season but one photograph snapped late tuesday night is worth, as they say, a thousand words. photograph er melissa little tok this picture following crist's defeat. a staffer removing that notorious fan, which all of america learned crist never leaves home without. a dispute over whether said fan was allowed made for some tense moments last month at a debate between crist and now reelected republican governor rick scott. parents of hundreds of elementary school students in california were sent into a panic mode recently when they received messages in their phones that their children were
3:32 pm
missing from school. the press enterprise reports the recorded messages went out at 11:11 a.m. hours after the students should have arrived. officials at john adams elementary say it was a mistake, a message intended for a hand full of parents whose children were absent went out to every single parent instead. a correction was issued a short time later but not quickly enough for parents wondering what happened to their kids. one parent called it the longest eight minutes of my life. school officials say that they have taken steps to make sure it does not happen again. and finally, an egyptian bus driver cheated on his work drug test got quite a shock when the results came in. the bbc reports the man submitted his wife's urine instead of his own, but there was something he did not know about his wife when the test results came back, the man's boss gave him a chance to confess but when the driver insisted he had not cheated, he was told congratulations, you're
3:33 pm
pregnant. let's take a look back tonight at how the main stream media covered the elections this week. why so many were so wrong about so much. in the blur of midterm media coverage, the maryland governor's race never got on the national radar. president obama campaigned for democratic lieutenant governor anthony brown heavily favored over republican businessman larry hogan. >> give it up for anthony brown. >> reporter: nate silver gave him a 94% chance of winning big but hogan beat brown by nearly five points under scoring a problem with polling in 2014. in the battle for the senate, most journalist and commentators missed the magnitude of the republican wave because the polls were so tight in many key contests. >> you can carve out a path for democrats that go through actually some red states like winning in alaska and georgia and kansas. there are ten senate races, some
3:34 pm
of which are within the margin of error. these each and every one of these races is very, very close. >> reporter: and the coverage of those battle grounds kept going back to the numbers. >> i want to get right to the latest nbc news mayor's poll in georgia republican candidate david perdue is clinging to a four point lead 48-44. the surprise is how close many of these key races are, especially the battle for the senate. in north carolina democratic senator kay hagan is hanging on to a one-point lead in a tough race against republican state speaker. >> reporter: the narrative was that democrats still had a shot, then came tuesday night. >> in the all important iowa senate race, fox news can project joni ernst will beat bruce braley. >> looking at some numbers, it's clear the pollsters were giving too much credit. >> the media wrote off ed
3:35 pm
gillespie of being way behind. >> no one can predict turnout. the problem is when journalist treat the surveys as gospel and turns out their fifth is misplaced. a warning from the speaker of the house to the president about going around congress. we'll get reaction to the all of that from the panel when we come back. i'm an idaho potato farmer and our big idaho potato truck is still missing. so my buddy here is going to help me find it. here we go. woo who, woah, woah, woah. it's out there somewhere spreading the word about america's favorite potatoes: heart healthy idaho potatoes and the american heart association's go red for women campaign. if you see it i hope you'll let us know. always look for the grown in idaho seal.

. . the president, if he acts unilaterally on his own outside of his authority, he'll poison the well and there will be no chance for immigration reform moving in this congress. it's as simple as that. when you play with matches, you take the risk of burning yourself, and he's going to burn
3:39 pm
himself if he continues to go down this path. >> before the end of the year, we're going to take whatever lawful actions that i can take that i believe will improve the functioning of our immigration system but what i'm not going to do is just wait. i think it's fair to say that i've shown a lot of patience. >> well, the speaker of the house with a warning shot the president yesterday and then today the white house press secretary asked is the president going to take this action definitively? quote, the answer is yes, the president is going to take this executive action. let's bring in our panel. okay. ron, thoughts? >> i was thinking today when i was a kid, me and my two brothers all about the same age, our parents would get mad for fighting. stop fighting and swat us and send us to our room and the
3:40 pm
first thing we would do when we got in the room is start fighting again, and it's exactly what happened this week. t it was clear. stop fighting and get something done. the constitutional head of the country deserves and got most blame but they want both parties to work together. look what is happening. they both have come out, the president insisting on taking the politically pushing his political nuclear button and republicans talking about repealing a law they know they can't repeal. >> obamacare. >> it's at its highest. >> around the edges they talk about common ground and saw it working together but you get to the heart of obamacare, immigration -- >> the president particular, i thought his news conference yesterday was beneath the office in a sense of pretending that this wasn't a shellacking and just giving lip service to common ground.
3:41 pm
it was -- he said he heard the american people but clearly he has not. >> george? >> when the president does what he promises to do on immigration, there will be three separate questions. one, is it good policy he's put in place? >> does it serve justice to the american needs? intelligent people of goodwill will disagree with that. the second question, is it good civics and good government procedure to go around the legislative branch, the elected representative, the answer is clearly no. the third question is difficult. is it legal? will he be in the words of john boehner acting outside of his authority? congress for 40 years now has been leeching away transferring great discretionary powers to the exec sieve branch and they are going to find when they look at the laws they have written, that the president has astonishing authority, far too much but there and it's real. it's going to complicate this argument. >> i agree. charles. >> look, first of all i disagree. i don't think the message of
3:42 pm
this election was get stuff done. i think the message that would be true, if it was an incumbent election. in fact, it was not. it was a repudiation of what the democrats are doing. stop doing that. it was at every level, house, senate, governorships and that is a very clear mistake of a message. what impresses it seems to me i arrogant attempt to the voice of the people. this was an unequivocal election. it was across the board. it was everywhere. i think it is very unconstitutional for a president to unilaterally suspend the enforcement of a huge part of extremely important law. immigration is sort of one of the basic elements of a country's solve eacountry solve earnty. i'm low on money so i'll let one
3:43 pm
or two guys go because they aren't big fish. this is truly contradicting what the constitution says the president has to ensure the laws are executed and the other part of it is apart from the constitutionality is the constitutional decency. we have had verdict by the people of a kind that is quite unusual in american history and to go ahead and ignore it in spite of that, in spite of a rejection, in spite of repudiation to say i'll ignore the will of the people and do this regardless shows contempt for the system. >> what about speaker boehner, ron? you mentioned in obamacare he said there is going to be another repeal effort. we seen the house vote many times to do it. this time potentially if it gets through the senate, if it was scaled down, but then piecemeal he said taking apart the medical device tax, other elements of the law. >> i think there are some
3:44 pm
elements that need to be fixed and could be fixed. i think the tax is one obvious one. it's a low-hanging fruit. when you talk about the mandate, the crux of the bill you talk about repealing the bill. going back to what charles said. this was no doubt a repudiation of the united states but not an affirmation of the republican party. six out of ten, including republicans have a dim view. 80% of the public said they are down on congress. >> they may have said that and felt it but they elected a whole lot of republicans. >> you know why? >> they have a choice between two evils. they voted for republicans and do not like what is happening in the city. >> but they gave a mandate to the lesser two levels. >> that is not a mandate. >> they said you are now in charge of the senate. you have a huge majority in the house and you have all these ownerships so now it's your responsibility. i'm not saying -- >> it's the responsibility of
3:45 pm
the government -- >> that's what the gop has to do is to govern. it's not a mandate to just do stuff together. it's to enact what republicans believe ought to be done. >> obviously, they sent roberts back to the senate and send mitch mcconnell to the senate. it's not -- you're interpreting it -- >> somebody has to win an election. >> greg orman -- >> this is not an election in which, i don't think you're saying, but republicans should get what they want. this is an election they are ex many specting that t-- expectind republicans to work together to solve problems. it's not an affirmation like 2012 wasn't a mandate for president obama. >> george, this is the first election in american history in which the behavior of the senate majority leader coast-to-coast was an issue. and what they said was process
3:46 pm
matters. americans very rarely vote on process questions but they did. they said there is something wrong when hundreds of bills are passed by the most democratic house legislature, the house of representatives and die in the senate. dignity of up or down mode. it does seem to me they said we want these things voted on and when they said stuff should get done and we want red lock broken, they were saying who the culprit was. >> you listened to the president and he said what i would like to do is hear from the republicans to find out what they would like to see happen and it's not a change because i suggested before that where there is areas of cooperation, i would like to get things done. that's what the president said even though it was harry reid who held a lot of bills. >> harry reid's desk or waste paper basket was where the bills of the house passed and went to die. i want one day to point.
3:47 pm
in arkansas people asked whether your vote for senator was influenced, was a message about what should control the senate. the answer was yes 82%. it was a national election. it was made national. obama endures the nationalizing of the election when you said it's about our policies and it isn't just to get stuff done. it was let the gop propose now ocho bobama had six years. >> we can cherry pick and say in arkansas the same voters voted for minimum wage so maybe we should have a national minimum wage. i don't think that's what you're saying. i said the president of the united states after an election did not have a mandate and i think we all said at the time that the 2012 election did not mean that democrats should be able to get everything they want. i'm saying, i'm being consistent and saying the same thing tion. the public did not say one party should be able to get everything they want. >> they did say republicans ought to propose and put them in charge of the agenda.
