7:01 am
the suspect taunting authorities with videos posted on social media. this morning, inside the desperate attempts to track him down. and game on! the world series begins tonight. a match-up of baseball's lovable losers. the chicago cubs and cleveland indians. no teams have waited longer. a combined 176 years in the making. we're live with fans in both cities "today," tuesday, october 25th, 2016. >> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everybody. welcome to "today" on a tuesday morning. world series day. this is so exciting! >> it is the fall classic. these two teams, imagine the excitement in chicago and cleveland this morning as they're getting ready to put behind them years of frustration.
7:02 am
>> 7:00 a.m., they're ready to go. >> they're playing for these long-suffering fans. you know what else they're playing for? >> what? don't drop it. please. this is the actual world series trophy? >> that is the world series trophy. we hold it until one team wins it. >> i love it. you know what people don't know is that you wear those white gloves for the show every day. >> not allowed to touch it without. it is an exciting time of year. >> so exciting. stakes are high, of course. but there is another match-up gripping the country right now, battle for the white house. state of the race, 14 days to go. at a late night rally donald trump insisted he's leading citing a poll he describes as the most accurate, a poll that shows him up two points. >> according to our new nbc news/survey monkey online weekly tracking poll, hillary clinton holds a six-point lead among likely voters.
7:03 am
>> both candidates will campaign in florida today. early voting already under way there. trump has several events planned across the state while clinton will speak to young voters at a broward college rally. starting with nbc's hallie jackson in tallahassee where trump will speak tonight. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. today it really will be battleground florida with back-to-back rallies in this must-win swing state for hillary clinton and for donald trump. trump right now is pointing to the energy at his rallies, but that enthusiasm so far hasn't moved the needle when it comes to his poll numbers. but now his campaign's unveiling what you could call trump tv as trump takes aim at what he calls the rigged media and overall the rigged system. with just two tuesdays to go, donald trump's outwardly optimistic, but maybe not totally realistic. >> we're leading. number one. folks, we're winning. we're winning. we're winning. >> reporter: virtually every major poll shows otherwise, something trump himself
7:04 am
acknowledged just hours earlier. >> i guess i'm somewhat behind in the polls but not by much. >> reporter: trump's trailing hillary clinton nationally, and by a slim margin in must-win battlegrounds north carolina and florida. now, stoking speculation he's laying the groundwork if he loses for an all-trump network -- >> welcome in to trump tower live -- >> reporter: his team debuting its own nightly broadcast on facebook. >> we're excited to be bypassing the left wing media. >> reporter: they're not calling it trump tv but it sure looks like it. >> this idea of a trump media empire, are you allowing yourself to imagine that scenario, too, during this? >> no. everybody's talking about it because i have so many voters and they're so committed. >> reporter: still caught in a controversy, the gop nominee denying a new allegation of sexual misconduct from an adult film actress whose lawyer, gloria allred, is a long-time clinton supporter. trump now raising eyebrows with this defense.
7:05 am
>> he grabbed me by the arm. i'm sure she's never been grabbed before. >> reporter: increasingly defiant, trump is sticking to his strategy, blaming what he calls a rigged system, even as he debuts a new line of attack on the affordable care act after a report from the federal health agency shows insurance premiums for some consumers will rise an average of 25% next year. >> yet another double-digit spike in your premium for obamacare and it doesn't work. >> reporter: the administration argues things are better now than before the law was passed. health care, a key issue for most voters in places like florida, the site of dueling rallies today. and in new hampshire where a feisty elizabeth warren on the trail with clinton resurrected trump's debate night dig. >> what we want to do is to replenish -- >> such a nasty woman. >> on november 8th, we nasty women are gonna march our nasty feet to past our nasty votes to
7:06 am
get you out of our lives forever! >> reporter: a more confident clinton campaign spreading surrogates across the country today, including president obama on late night tv. >> when you watch the debate and you watch donald trump, do you -- do you ever laugh? do you ever actually laugh? >> most -- most of the time. yeah. reporter: through it all, the republican in-fighting hasn't gone anywhere. now our new nbc news/survey monkey online tracking poll shows a majority of republicans, 57%, believe that that friction could actually threaten trump's chances at winning the presidency. he's on the campaign trail here in florida today. tomorrow, by the way, he's edding up to washington, spending some of his very limited time before election day opening his new hotel in washington, d.c. matt, savannah? >> hallie jackson up early and on the trail this morning, thank you.
7:07 am
>> let us bring in steve kornacki. there are so many different polls. we have ours, other outlets have theirs. donald trump says don't believe any of them -- except the ones that show he's doing well. show me in terms of the polls. >> you see these numbers with the decimal points and everything. if it looks really exact, that's because that is what we're trying to do. this is the average of every poll out there. seems there's a new one every day. on the clinton side you'll have a poll that has her up 12, trump will be promoting one that says it is a dead-even race. here's the point, when you take all that polling data that come out and merge it all together, this is the most reliable way to look at the election. it is a lead for hillary clinton of close to six points. obviously, that is a significant lead. donald trump would need movement in his direction. it is always better, i think especially in crunch time in a campaign, you don't look at the one poll that's 12 points this way or one that's five that way. if you average them together, that's sort of your compass in a campaign like this. >> another data point that's interesting, if you go back to during the primaries and they'd do hypothetical matchups between
7:08 am
a hillary clinton and any number of the republican candidates, you do see a consistency when you look at the trump/clinton matchup going way back into the spring. >> if you go back to june, may, april, those numbers clinton versus trump, she had a lead double digits in april. but you see 3%, 5%. it has existed in the same range the whole way. the common thread in this race has been donald trump has not been ahead since it's been a trump/clinton race. >> we've seen hillary clinton looking almost past donald trump and looking to secure some of those seats in the house and the senate. let's start in the senate and talk about where she stands now and her chances of bringing it back to democratic control. >> let's take a look at the senate battleground map. this is what it looks like right now, republicans have a basically 56-46 majority. the democrats have a lot of opportunities on this map. this is where hillary clinton was yesterday. she was in new hampshire. you have a republican incumbent there. hillary clinton may be favored in that state if she can carry the democrat, that would be a pick-up. democrats are also looking at
7:09 am
pennsylvania. illinois, they're feeling really good about. a lot of democrats think they have that senate race in the bag there. wisconsin's another one. look, if you just got those four, if you're the democrat and hillary clinton wins the presidency, those four alone would give you control of the senate. the one wild card on here democrats have to worry about -- it's this state, nevada. harry reid, the democratic leader, is retiring. this is the one democratic senate seat right now they are at risk of losing to republicans. >> no question, republicans are most worried about losing control of the senate right now. real quickly, give us the lay of the land in the house. it would have to be a huge wave for republicans to lose control of the house. >> it would. take a look, this is the balance right now. republicans -- this is the highest number republicans have had in the house since 1928. republicans when they won this majority two years ago said it was wave-proof. democrats would need to pick up 30-plus seats, they would need to win in very, very republican districts. hard to see. this is what you need to think if this is a ten-point or more presidential race, i think it comes into play. if it isn't, very hard to see.
7:10 am
of. >> nobody better on the board than steve kornacki. steve, thank you very much. >> i'm exhausted! steve, thank you. now to another story. a theme park tragedy that happened overnight. we mentioned this at the top of the show. at least four people were killed in australia when a popular ride malfunctioned. nbc's chief global correspondent bill neely has the latest on it. bill, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. this was one of the star attractions of australia's biggest theme park. billed as one of the safest rides at the park called "dream world." a place this morning of nightmare. ♪ >> reporter: the thunder river rapids ride has been thrilling visitors at the park for 30 years. today, tragedy as one of the rafts overturned throwing two passengers off, trapping two others on a conveyor belt underneath. >> obviously kids were onboard screaming while their mom was like trapped under.
7:11 am
and -- yeah. i'd rather not talk about what i saw. >> she came out hysterically crying. then two people that worked here took her away, and the little baby. >> reporter: rescuers tried to save lives but two men and two women died at the scene. >> one of the rides had sustained some sort of malfunction causing two people to be ejected from a ride, another two people were caught inside the ride. >> reporter: one eyewitness was american runner who won olympic gold in rio. dude, he tweeted, just got off a ride 15 minutes ago that has one person seriously injured and two others trapped. but this ride had problems earlier. people were stuck as the artificial river was drained. >> we were told that we had to wait a minute because there was a bit of a maintenance problem. we got stopped for 30, 40 minutes, people were probably in the water floating around. they completely drained it all,
7:12 am
then filled it back up. >> reporter: it was later declared safe, a decision that proved fatal. well, this ride was known as one of the tamest, family friendly. it even took children as young as 3 years old. now it's one of the deadliest. dream world say they're deeply shocked. their park is now closed. clearly they face some very serious questions. matt, savannah? >> all right, bill neely, thank you. horrible story out of pakistan where a gunmen stormed a police training center late monday killing at least 59 people. more than 100 others were wounded. pakistani officials say between four and six gunmen opened fire as they rushed that building. many of the police trainees were killed when the gunmen detonated explosive vests. officials say an al qaeda-linked militant group is responsible for that attack. police say a 38-year-old, michael vance, shot and injured two police officers on sunday night, then stole their patrol
7:13 am
car. he live-streamed his getaway on facebook and taunted police along the way. >> if you want to know what's up next, stay tuned to your local news. >> police say vance then stole another car, shooting and injuring a woman in the process. that car found eight miles away and inside the home police found the bodies of two of vance's relatives. they believe he switched vehicles once again and was last seen driving a 2007 mitsubishi ellipse. he is considered armed and dangerous. outrage involving a controversial request from the pentagon. it involves cash bonuses given to service members, but now the military wants that money returned. nbc's morgan radford is in los angeles with more. morgan, good morning to you. >> matt, good morning. this story goes back to at least 2007 and involves nearly 10,000 men and women from the california national guard. now they were recruited to join up at a time when the military desperately needed to bolster its ranks.
7:14 am
now the pentagon wants that money back, even though some of those folks really aren't in a position to pay. when the military needed more troops to help fight wars in iraq and afghanistan, the california national guard started handing out bonuses of $15,000 or more. >> this was for my first deployment. >> reporter: robert served two tours of combat duty in iraq, and now he is being asked to return his $20,000 bonus. what went through your mind when you first got that letter saying you owed money? >> anger. we didn't do anything wrong. we just stepped forward, we volunteered, we signed on the line, we did our duty. and now they're slapping us in the face for it. >> reporter: thousands of soldiers like him were signed up by military recruiters. in some cases those recruiting officers knew the soldiers weren't really eligible for enlistment bonuses but signed them up anyway. in 2011 a so-called recruitment
7:15 am
management pled guilty to filing false claims totaling $15 million. three other officers also pleaded guilty to fraud. >> bonuses went from a small group of critical skills to almost everybody that was joined was eligible. in a lot of instances, soldiers would get paychecks that were far and above greater than their normal pay. >> reporter: rather than forgiving the bonuses, which were in some cases improperly handed out, the guard assigned auditors to track down the money, saying in a statement, "the california national guard does not have the authority to unilaterally waive these debts." even though those who signed up and got bonuses didn't do anything wrong, the auditors found a total of $37 million may have been wrongly paid out. since the "los angeles times" first reported the story, elected officials on both sides of the aisle have criticized the pentagon and are now calling for change. >> well, that's disgraceful that we would ever treat those men
7:16 am
and women who came to the call of this country after 9/11 to put them in this situation. >> reporter: for people like deandre, the relief can't come soon enough. have you paid any of this money that they've requested? >> no, i haven't. i haven't. i don't plan on it either. i plan on winning. >> well, a pentagon spokesperson tells nbc news that the senior leadership of the department is looking very closely at this matter, adding that national guard units in other states may also be facing the same issue. matt? savannah? >> morgan, thank you very much. a historic building in washington state exploded in a billow of smoke and flames. it was all caught on camera. firefighters were already on the scene when pressure from the fire blew out the front windows sending a cloud of smoke shooting from the building. it happened late last night. fortunately, nobody was injured. the cause of the fire is under investigation. do you use your parking brake when you park your car? >> sometimes.
7:17 am
>> proof this morning you should always do that, especially whether on a hill. take a look at this surveillance video out of switzerland. a man pulled out on the shoulder of the road to talk to a truck driver. got out without putting the brake on. moments later found himself chasing his runaway car across several lanes of a busy highway. eventually, the car came to a rest after hitting that road sign. >> yes, i always put my parking brake on. starting now. >> look both ways when crossing a big highway. >> crazy. good morning. what's shaking in the weather? >> we've got some crazy cold weather in the northeast. parts of new england on the chilly side. much of the country under warmer weather. but this jet stream dip brings those temperatures down. look at windchills. it feels like 29 in binghamton. 36 boston. 43 in philly. burlington, 30 degrees. in fact, tomorrow it is going to be even colder. 24 million of us under some sort of frost/freeze watch or frost advisory and a hard freeze for parts of the northeast. then you look at midsections of the country, look at how warm it is going to be. over the next several days, cheyenne, you're going to get up to 76 by thursday.
7:18 am
78 in wichita. dallas, 84. thursday, new orleans, a high of 81. and it warms up even more as you get into the weekend. we're going to get to your local forecast coming up in the next 30 seconds. mild temperatures to start the day. mid 60s outside. rain across the north bay, especially into san francisco and the east bay right now. but still missing out in san jose. that will be the trend of the day as the rain line moves from the central bay into the north bay and eventually out of the bay area as we head towards the
7:19 am
evening and things will slowly begin to dry out. mild temperatures for highs. the next round of rain comes on thursday and round three due in saturday night into sunday with cooler temperatures late in the week. our latest weather. guys? >> all right, al, thank you. coming up, the ex-wife of former subway pitchman jared fogle is now suing the fast food giant accusing the company of turning a blind eye of disturbing complaints against him. baseball fans' lovable losers gearing up for tonight's opening game of the world series. we're with them live in cleveland and chicago. yeah, we've got the trophy here in the studio. but first, this is "today" on nbc.

7:32 am
@realdonaldtrump. @realdonaldtrump. at least i will go down as a president. >> a phone drop moment. >> exactly. president having a little fun on "jimmy kimmel" live. just dropped the phone at the end of that. let's get back to that historic world series match-up between the cubs and the indians. long time coming for both teams and their fans. who are anxiously awaiting tonight's first pitch. we've got both cities covered. let's start with ron mott. he's in cleveland. ron, what's going on around you there? >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning. you know a lot of the buzz coming in to the series has all been about the chicago cubs and how they haven't won in so long. well, it's been a long time here as well. right, fans? >> woo-hoo! >> the cubs have won the pennant! >> the cleveland indians are going to the world series!
7:33 am
>> reporter: in cleveland, two of baseball's perennial punch lines, the chicago cubs and the cleveland indians, ever the underdogs, about to take the field, ready to take a swing at rewriting history. but when the story of this world series is told, only one of them is guaranteed the last laugh. the indians last won the fall classic all the way back in 1948 coming close twice in the '90s but falling short both times. the cubs had waited nearly 40 years longer, more than a century -- 108 years, if you're counting. >> go, cubs, go! >> reporter: their historic meeting has created a fever pitch among diehard fans. >> i don't even know how to describe it in words. i feel like we're still sleeping. we're going to make up and it may not be real. >> listen to the roar of the crowd as indians take the field. >> reporter: their stories that of legends. world series crown would pit them beside the city's ruling king, lebron james. >> it's over. cleveland is a city champions
7:34 am
once again. >> reporter: -- who returned home and delivered on a championship promise. tonight, lebron and the cavaliers will get their championship rings right next door to where the cubs and indians search for their glory. >> it is a day that will go down in history for anyone that lives here. they will never forget it. >> reporter: of course, as the excitement soars, so are ticket prices. right now they are too pricey for the average fan. some of the best seats for tonight's game pushing $7,000. at wrigley, even more, creative cubs fans thinking outside the batter's box. offering tickets to the chicago run of the broadway smash hit "hamilton" in exchange for world series seats. now if the indians can pull this off, this will only be the second time in american sports history that the basketball and baseball champs have come from the same town. l.a. did it with the dodgers and bakers in '88. as they say in rome and
7:35 am
cleveland -- let's go tribe. >> by the way, if it is a question between "hamilton" tickets and world series tickets, "hamilton" is going to be on broadway for a while. we do not want to leave chicago out. let's go 350 miles west and check on the mood of fans in chicago there. they're up early there with nbc's sheinelle joins. little pep rally going on? >> little pep rally? this thing is massive. i know there are fans in cleveland who really want to win, but trust me -- in fact, let me use my little ladder here. i want you to see the size of this crowd. there are fans all over chicago i'm at harry caray's in downtown

7:37 am
what does it mean to be a cubs fan and what would it mean to go all the way? >> we don't have to dream anymore. it is a reality. four more wins and -- whoopie! >> a little go, cubs, go. ready -- go! go, cubs, go! >> go, cubs, go! go, cubs, go! >> bring us back some swag, too. >> tamron has the world series fever in the orange room. she's in for carson. >> my goodness. you think those people were excited in both of those live shots, wait until you hear this. the excitement for the world series building online here in the orange room. this is the coveted trophy that will be presented to the winning team. what every cubs and indians player has in his sights as well as the team fans. but guess what? i'm going to faint. we have something even more exciting for baseball fans this morning. we have our hands on tickets to

7:39 am
starts out okay. tonight we're going to have game one, partly cloudy skies, 46 degrees. but we've got some rain coming for tomorrow so we'll be watching that very closely. we've got this system coming out of the midwest today, out of the rockies. it is going to be pushing further to the east. as it does, we look for strong storms from minnesota all the way into chicago today into tomorrow. moving into thursday, more rain is moving making its way into the northeast. cold enough where we could see some snow in the upper elevations of upstate new york and new england. rainfall amounts through thursday though from chicago to cleveland. we are looking at about an inch of rain. but the heaviest rain will be back from eastern iowa on into central mild temperatures, breezy, low to mid 60s outside right now. the most rain we'll see all day moving through right now. in fact, you can see a bit of a break in san francisco as the rain line we think will move out of the central bay up through the north bay into the afternoon with some mid to late afternoon
7:40 am

8:25 am
aed around. >> so what about preventing cardiac arrest in the first place? all the patients we spoke with said their children had passed their physicals but were not screened for heart conditions which is typically not part of the sports exam in kids. so obviously they need to raise awareness about screenings in ekgs as well. these aeds cost $800 to $1,000. so these parents say, yeah, that is expensive. but if every kid brought in their lunch money or had a bake sale they could have them on fields or lunch rooms across the country. >> you want them close by, too. it is just those critical minutes. >> they really need to be on fields. >> jenna, thank you. coming up, we'll shift gears. we've got the barefoot contessa here with one of her favorite go-to recipes. and who is going to break the
