lady, for a massive rally in philadelphia. what they want voters to see right before they head into the polls this last image, george, the passing of the torch. >> going for a blockbuster finish, thanks very much. let's bring in matt dowd and jon karl to talk about this more. put up our tracking poll. we said it shows a three-point lead for hillary clinton overall nationally but part of the reason it's close you're seeing a scramble in states and encouraging signs for donald trump in blue states and encouraging ones for hillary in red states. >> reporter: there's no question this race has tightened. hillary clinton is still the favorite in this race but the map is really gotten jumbled. look at the new polls we have out in the last 24ou hampshire, now at a tie. this is a state that for over a month hillary clinton looked like she had a comfortable lead. now we've had a series of polls that show that donald trump could actually win in the state of new hampshire and then if you look at traditionally red states, we have first the state of arizona. this is one that the clinton team said they are going after. look at this, a poll that shows trump up but barely outside the margin of error. that is uncomfortably close for a republican in arizona and then finally in the state of georgia,

7:44 am
adding salt, but it's in the foods, you describe. what do you recommend? >> if we have to lead by example, adults have a problem with it l. if you're talking about things can you do today, start by reading those labels. flip that package around, look at the sodium content and look at the sugar as well because that's a big culprit. you want to try to eat non-prosed foods as much as possible. when your kids are little, expose them to a range of different types of food because their palates are developing, and they should taste what all types of food taste like, and be on the lookout for kids tha in medicine, water follows salt, so that could be a sign they are getting too much. >> check for sodium. five times a week. >> thanks, becky. >> getting down to five is going to be hard. >> that's true. hey, jon, have a good weekend, jen, same, becky, you'll still work and come back later. pre-black friday sales. >> don't start. >> okay, okay. coming up in two minutes, the guys who pranked their way into a north korean golf tournament.

there is jonbenet ramsey. it's now 20 years after her murder and we have a first look at a new lifetime documentary that examines her mother patsy. paula faris is here with that. hey, paula. >> good morning, george. you know, in this documentary you'll see interviews that you have never seen before, as well as analysis of that 911 call. through creator asking the question, could patsy ramsey have killed her own daughter and detail how patsy's love of stage and theater may have helped her cover it up. >> in 1996, the savage murder of jonbenet ramsey gripped the nation. >> reporter: on the 20-year anniversary a fresh examination of the tragic death of 6-year-old beauty queen jonbenet ramsey with an upcoming made for tv movie. >> jonbenet was everything to me. >> reporter: and a new documentary produced by lifetime. >> from the beginning, the police and media suspected one
8:13 am
question -- >> who was patsy ramsey, tragic victim or cold-blooded killer? >> let me assure you that i did not kill jonbenet. >> reporter: in 2008 the district attorney, mary lacy, exonerated the ramseys claiming that touch dna proved the suspect was an unknown male. but this lifetime special is now resurrecting big questions about whether patsy ramsey might have been jonbenet's killer starting with the ransom note found at the crime scene. one of the first detectives to arrive at the million dollar mansion that terrible december morning, robert whitson. >> the handwriting examiner said i need to show you something and he turned three or four pages in that notepad, and at the top of the pad it said mr. and mrs. and then started the letter "r." so at that point it looked like
8:14 am
and that notepad was patsy ramsey's. >> reporter: and another detective on the case, fred patterson telling lifetime -- >> there were some similarities in the handwriting between patsy's writing and the writing on the note. >> reporter: investigative journalist jeff shapiro who covered the story for over a decade saying -- >> would an intruder break in and take the time to try to copy patsy's handwriting or is it sheer coincidence that some of the resemble resembles her or is none of this a coincidence? >> reporter: it showcases her love of theater. her chosen talent when she was a young beauty queen herself. >> patsy practiced a lot. she worked on her characters and her vocalizations and her accents and all of the different things to create the characters. >> reporter: the filmmakers raising the question, could she have been acting all along to cover up a possible crime? >> there was a sense within the law enforcement community that because of patsy ramsey's
8:15 am
was someone who has a grip on great theatrics. >> now, let's remember that patsy ramsey did pass away ten years ago. we reached out to lin wood who represents the ramsey family, no response, but, george, this documentary looks fascinating. >> it sure does. lease talk to someone in it. dan abrams, our chief legal analyst. thanks, paula. dan, you've been following this case from the beginning, 20 years, part of this documentary. what do you make of this new information? >> this new information argument that it couldn't have been patsy ramsey because there was one unidentified male person's dna both in jonbenet's underwear and another spot in the long johns, and that was the critical relatively new piece of evidence meaning the authorities did this new type of dna testing in 2007/2008. they found what they told us publicly was a match in another
8:16 am
male dna found in her underwear so the conclusion was, well, that must be the real killer. now we learn, well, it's not so definitive. >> so, that's the thing. it doesn't actively implicate patsy but it takes away this information that looked definitive about somebody else. >> that's right. that's right, because before when the d.a. came out 2004 and formally exonerated the ramsey family, the main arme was, look, we've got this dna which points to somebody else and now we learn, well, this could actually be dna from multiple people and as a result it might have been transferred or gotten there in some other way. >> do you think had we known this at the time, she wouldn't have been exonerated? >> the d.a. would tell you, no. the d.a. would say it was based on the totality of the circumstances, but it does make it a little bit of a tougher argument to formally exonerate, and i say that because there is still such a divide within the boulder community and among the boulder authorities about whether patsy ramsey might have
8:17 am
exonerate someone publicly, you better have it sort of clear and convincing -- they would say -- mary lacy and lin wood would say we still believe it's clear and convincing but -- >> what do authorities do with it at this point? it's a 20-year-old case. patsy has been dead for ten years. >> what they do is publicly claim it's still open. they publicly leave it still open and this case will never be solved. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. the movie "who killed jonbenet? airs tomorrow on lifetime. it's immediately documentary "jonbenet's mother: victim or killer." the holiday shopping alert. the best days to get deals that aren't black friday. alright, here we go. let's hear the crowd. ahhhh! i go to the right. i go to the left. fake 'em out. mama go up, up, up! she did it. -again? you can't avoid gravity. but unitedhealthcare can help you avoid financial surprises by helping you

8:23 am
20% of the population wrapped and done. that is kind of unsettling along with the idea that we're seeing ads in circulars that came out last weekend for black friday deals starting now. so do i have to shop now to get the best deals? >> black friday deals are here all month long at lowe's. >> reporter: ads for early black friday sales like starting now. i thought shopping on black friday was getting ahead of the holidays. are these early sales a sign that the best deals are only happening now? there are a few stellar offers. walmart with a sale on tvs like this 32-inch hdtv for $125. that's over 100 bucks off. great deals like this 60% off blanket discount on the columbia site with a code and amazon with
8:24 am
to 40% off of various megablocks. don't get too anxious yet about missing the lowest prices. >> anything that calls itself a black friday sale and is happening in the first three weeks of november is suspicious. we're very skeptical of it. >> reporter: they say it's worth waiting for better prices around thanksgiving. phones, predicted to be hundreds of dollars cheaper. tvs can be 40% to 70% off, and beauty products so rarely discounted are ripe for buy one get one free offers. and the timing on deals is pretty standard. dealnews tracks the number of great deals are low in the beginning of november but ramp up to peak discounts on thanksgiving day. >> if you want the best deals of the season, you do have to do a little bit of shopping on thanksgiving. take out your computer or take out your tablet and start browsing the door busters online that evening. >> and if you don't want to give up your turkey day, good for you. enjoy the holiday weekend because the second best day for deals all year long, cyber

option. the other option is him being more like true to his original roots as a jazz pianist also dealing with his romance with emma stone's character and they're figuring it out but it's a love story but also about two creative people in los angeles trying to make it. >> i've heard great thing. >> beautiful, dame dwren is an amazing director and so proud just to be part of it. >> have you been bitten by the acting bug. >> i had a great time but i still think i'm more of a songwriter and singer than i am an actor. but i had a wonderful time and i was lucky to just be a part of such a great cast and a great team. >> we see a combination of that. [ applause ] we see a combination of that with your new music video. can we show everybody? >> i wasn't really acting in this. >> ah, that's true. that's true, all john legend. here we go. ? who's gonna kiss you when i'm gone ? ? i'm gonna love you now like it's all i have ?
