6:30 pm
everything was on the line, you'll be able to say you voted for a stronger, fairer, better america where we build bridges, not walls. >> reporter: clinton argues that she has a reputation for building consensus in the senate and that she can do it in the c white house, too. >> pelley: nancy cordes, thankd you very much. on to major garrett. major, what was trump's close today?he how did he try to wrap it ups with the voters? >> reporter: scott, the closing argument is this: everyone in american political life notd supporting donald trump is some combination of stupid, corrupt or weak. and in the case of hillary clinton, trump argues vigorously she's all three. he also lays before his supporters this proposition: if
6:31 pm
, i'm the only change agent, someone with political clout and celebrity status sufficient to beat the special interests in washington at their own game. it is a nationalist, populist and conservative argument that trump found very resonant responses from his supporters. the key question is are there enough of those supporters to push him over the top?s >> pelley: nancy, as everyone knows, there are 13 very closell divided states. we call them the battleground states. how does clinton feel about those tonight? campaign feels confidently determined, scott. it feels a lot like the atmosphere around the obama operation in 2012, which isn't entirely surprising because it's a lot of the same people. they are very data-driven. they have a strategy that's been in place for a long time.r they know what they need to do to win. if they execute the strategy properly, they win. in fact, a couple days ago i was talking to marlon marshall, the director of state campaigns.di i asked him if he's feeling more nervous this week than last week
6:32 pm
in he said, "you're assuming that i'm nervous at all, and i'm not." >> pelley: major, donald trump almost has to sweep the table oo the battleground states. how do they feel about that prospect? >> reporter: scott, tomorrow they're going to be looking at a number of states obviously, but michigan, pennsylvania, new hampshire loom the largest for the trump campaign. also out west, colorado and nevada. i was talking to a senior trump adviser. i said, wait a minute, the earle vote in nevada is running way against you. you have to break the mold toag he told me the mold is already broken. we just don't know by how much. >> pelley: major garrett and nancy cordes on election eve,uc thank you both. charlie rose will be moderating our election night panel tomorrow night. and he's here tonight with usli now. charlie? >> reporter: thanks, scott. joining me now is peggy noonan,e a columnist with the "wall street journal," jamelle bouie
6:33 pm
"the new york times" d magazine. mark, looking at where these candidates are, what does that say about their priorities and the situation on the day beforei the election?in >> well, it's interesting that both candidates will be spending time in pennsylvania and these are clearly states that donald trump needs at least oney of them. they're also states that don't have early voting and so the more work you can do on election day or the day before election e day, it will have a bigger difference. these are both states in the campaign and the trump campaign have been emphasizing really closely. >> rose: jamelle, what abouts these constituencies that they will be looking to gain early participation?n >> trump is obviously trying to dust up his support with working-class white voters and probably try to cover support.em the clinton campaign's obviously very focused on giving african american turnout up and sustaining high hispanic turnout. part of the problem is in statep like north carolina, which is a tipping point state for the
6:34 pm
re polling places, high requirements for i.d. havell actually reduced african american turnout by about 9%. so that's a real challenge for the clinton campaign going into tuesday. >> rose: the idea of voter suppression? >> right, voter suppression. >> rose: peggy? >> i think two great questions.y one, does the obama coalition turn out for hillary clinton in an organized, concentrated way, significant enough to give her a win? on mr. trump's side, does the does the working class show up? is there actually a secret trump vote that nobody knows about that is going to show up at the polls as his campaign has suggested. >> pelley: how about women? >> women have been problematic for mr. trump. i think in states like pennsylvania it will probably turn out to be suburban women w who might have gone republican but who didn't want to go down the trumpian path considering
6:35 pm
in nearby ohio, a woman recently said to me, "it can't be trump and i'm a republican." i said, why? she said, "because i have a son and i don't want him to think it's okay to talk like that man."ip >> rose: one thing we expect is large participation by latinos in this election. >> it's a game changer potentially. in florida, especially north carolina, in early votes, two crucial states, certainly if hillary clinton can win at lease one of them she's in very, very good shape. there's been very, very high latino turnout, that would seem to favor her. and obviously it's a great surprise for them. >> i think it gets to this question of missing voters. there's the shy trump voter, but there's also the shy clinton voter. i think quite a few of the shy clinton voters might actually be non-white voters who are not picking up on the polls but may be turning out to vote. >> rose: guys, thank you very y much.
6:36 pm
back to you, scott. >> pelley: charlie rose, thank you very much.wo of course, the outcome of the u.s. election has a worldwide effect, so we spent correspondents to two capitals. elizabeth palmer is in moscow. manuel bojorquez is in mexicohi city. >> this is the heart of our factory. >> reporter: this factory outside mexico city produces a new type of cement repair mix. jose osawa is the owner. >> this is one of the main products we import from the state.r: >> reporter: the free tradet agreement known as nafta allows him to import the ingredientsth without paying tariffs. >> basically all my raw materials come from the states, all the machinery, all the electronics, they come from the u.s. >> reporter: so the more you sell, the better you do, the better those suppliers in the u.s. do, as well. >> yes, my suppliers are very happy if i'm growing. >> reporter: that's one way to look at nafta. s here's another.>> >> nafta is the worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere, but certainly ever signed in this country. >> reporter: donald trump has vowed to renegotiate or rip up
6:37 pm
has led to trump protests here. what would happen if the united states decided to get out of nafta?ge >> i think it would be a huge mistake and hurt significantly u.s. companies. any kind of company. >> reporter: blanca trevino is c.e.o. of softtek, a high tech service provider headquartered in monterrey, mexico. >> the partnership benefits us ind think of the jobs that are think much more how many jobs would be lost if we didn't have this kind of agreement? >> reporter: it's estimated that more than a million u.s. jobs are directly tried to trade with mexico. softtek, for example, employs more than 500 people in the u.s. and all the software and hardware it uses for corporate clients around the world is purchased from u.s. companies.ou >> it's not just i.t. think about tourism. think about transportation. there are so many things also related to nafta that are
6:38 pm
>> reporter: but trump points to job losses in u.s. manufacturing to countries like mexico. hillary clinton is heavily favored here, and not just on trade, scott.ex one mexican tv network has branded its election coverage, "it's her or the wall," no mention of trump. >> pelley: manuel bojorquez in mexico city for us tonight, thanks. of course, for their part, theee russians have been accused of computer hacking to interfere with the campaign. our elizabeth palmer is in moscow tonight. liz, what are the russians saying about that? >> reporter: well, the russians have denied that they meddled i. the u.s. election but those denials haved on occasion sounded like taunts. take, for example, president vladimir putin at a conference recently. he said that america's reaction to the reports of meddling were hysterical, implying that theba u.s. is being thin-skinned and defensive. and then he went on to say
6:39 pm
mistaken." >> pelley: what, in yourco opinion, has the russian government been trying to achieve with all of this? >> reporter: well, they want to undermine confidence in america's voting system, both at home and abroad, and also to belittle american democracy, but maybe most of all they want they want to be considered players on the world stage. and the very fact that the united states has to prepare for the possibility of russian cyber attacks tomorrow during the election or even that we're talking about vladimir putin and russia's role in america's scott, that's a win for the kremlin.r >> pelley: liz palmer in front of the kremlin tonight on the moscow river.. liz, thank you. well, each of our 50 states has made up its own rules for election day. some of them have made voting easier.ot some harder. carter evans has >> reporter: in california,al early voting has been under way for weeks to accommodate a record 19.4 million registered voters. there's a lot of concern about
6:40 pm
d >> i tell people not to let thet dialogue about that deter them from going out to vote tomorrowi >> reporter: dean logan is the reg star in los angeles county, where the only thing you need to bring to the polls is yourself. >> california does not requireou i.d. to vote. you sign the legal oath that you haven't voted anywhere else andb that you are eligible to vote and they'll issue you that >> reporter: but 14 states haves new, restrictive voting laws. nebraska and ohio both reducedne early voting days. anyone other than a caregiver or family member to drop off another voter's absentee ballot, and seven states now require photo i.d. at the polls. deputy director at the brennanaw center for justice. >> these strict photo identification laws includes identification that up to 8% to 12% of americans don't have. i all these laws do is put barriers in front of the ballot
6:41 pm
>> reporter: if people start to interfere with voters asking for i.d.s, asking citizenship, what's going to happen? >> we'll contact our friends in law enforcement and ask them to intervene to ensure that voters are not intimidated. >> reporter: and the department of justice plans to deploy more than 500 poll watchers to 28 states to make sure that federal voting rights laws are followed, but, scott, that is actually fewer poll monitors than the department of justice sent out in the 2012 election. >> pelley: carter evans for us tonight. carter, thanks very much. n t edition of the "cbs evening news," the election torch is passed to millennials. and later, what the world think. of all of this.
