12:00 am
it is election night on cbs. we have breaking news. cbs news has now made an estimate in the state of maine. the votes are counted, hillary clinton will be the winner in the state of maine. with its four electoral votes. that brings hillary clinton's total up to 218. donald trump 244. but still, a very steep hill for hillary clinton to climb. >> again, we are looking inside those additional states.
12:01 am
involve pennsylvania, michigan, and wisconsin. right? do they have a similar electorate in those states? john? >> yes, they do. it's that noncollege blue-collar population. what makes pennsylvania a little bit different, is -- i mean pennsylvania and michigan the coalition for hillary clinton would have to be african-americans, college suburban educated women. points. college educated women. so that's not a huge amount for her. whereas in, in pennsylvania, she is up by 14 points. with college educated women. so -- that would -- she would have wanted a bigger margin with that group. by the way, giving her maine, continues allowing the possibility of the screen
12:02 am
college tie. since we just called maine for hillary clinton. >> the clinton team and watch party was assembled at the javits center in new york two miles from where the trump team was gathered. the clinton team choosing the place because the javits center has a glass ceiling. the clinton team wanting to make. >> symbolism there. >> to place cracks in the glass ceiling, that has the not occurred as of 2:00 in the morning on the east. t chairman john podesta left the hotel. here he is to address the crowd. let's listen. >> thank you. well, folks, i know you have been here a long time. and it's been a long night. and it's been a long campaign. but i can say, we can wait a
12:03 am
they're still counting votes. and every vote could count. several states are too close to call. so we are not going to have anything more to say tonight. so, listen -- listen to me. everybody should head home. you should get some sleep. we'll have more to say tomorrow. i want you to know i want every person in -- in this hall to know, i want the country to support -- who supported hillary to know that your voices and your enthusiasm mean so much to her and to tim and to all of us. we are so proud of you. and we are so proud of her. she has done an amazing job and
12:04 am
so, thank you for being with her. she has always been with you. i have to say this tonight, good night. we will be back. we will have more to say. let's get those votes counted. and let's bring this home. thank you so much for awe that you have done. you are in all of our hearts. thank you. >> the clinton team had written a victory on this night. and we have just witnessed john p ocht dcht ec-- po dcht echt st t acht to tell everyone to go home. there will be no victory or concession speech from hillary clinton tonight. that they will wait it out until tomorrow. >> they had a victory speech, and then a fireworks display planned. that was canceled this week. thought better, maybe that doesn't.
12:05 am
they said with the permit. that was scrapped. but so interesting, there was so much time spent on. i didn't see one interview with donald trump or one of the surrogates, if he doesn't, if it doesn't go the way he planned will he graciously concede. every interview with donald trump or any body associated asked that question. >> that was the question going into the night. if it was close would, would one of the candidates not concede. i think most people thought that would be donald trump. it turns out, it's the campaign. i mean -- >> she can't concede while there are vets on the table. >> no, no, i don't mean that. the irony of what we are seeing unfolding, right? >> i mean, you know. bob, have you ever seen anything like this? >> well, i was the one who said yesterday, you know, the way this thing is going, the next thing that will happen it will rain frogs. well, it's looking like, ribbit.
12:06 am
little while to concede. >> i assume what they're doing also is figuring out whether there is a challenge they can make if in fact they're losing and look at it. have a few hours to make that. look at the votes. and say here is a way that we can challenge it if we want to. >> i don't have access, because we are all staring at the numbers whether there has been discussion about legal challenges in some of the states. i have not heard one at this particular point. i think what we are seeing is razor thin. how era are not going to hear from hillary clinton tonight. one of the scenarios tonight was that this country would elect its first woman president. as the the 45th president. first female commander-in-chief. we are not going to hear from her. i think the next question is, will we hear from donald trump? >> i'll bet you knob from the donald trump campaign is thinking about going home. i bet there are no charges tonight of a rigged election
12:07 am
emptying jacob javits center for us tonight. nancy? >> well, scott, looks like people are heeding advice and filing out. you can see some people are crying. some people just look kind of stunned. i think the clinton kachl pain is trying to figure out what to do next. does hillary clinton stay here in manhattan or go home to chappaqua, if they say something in the morning what do they say? i was digging a little deeper into the numbers in wisconsin, to try to figure out what's going on there. took a look at the state's, most populous county by far, milwaukee county, and it turns out that the vote totals in that democratic stronghold are off more than 100,000 voters from four years ago. hillary clinton won the county by just about as large of a percentage as president obama
12:08 am
romney there by 34%. but she was just starved of the votes that she needed in that county to offset donald trump's totals in more rural parts of the state. so the question becomes, was it complacency on the part of voters there? was it disaffection with hillary clinton? was it a second rate ground game in a state that the campaign thought wasn't going to competitive they thought they had in the bag based on past democraticfo the above. they're not ready to throw in the tow yet, clearly. you heard john podesta say let's find out what happens in the morning. it is incredibly discouraging for a campaign if anything was known for a superior ground game. and had all of the money in the world to air ads, to hire, hire staffers in any state that they
12:09 am
challenge. >> nancy cordecht s there. and john, this has been the central question tonight. did hillary clinton underperform? did donald trump overperform, what about in wisconsin there? >> this is interesting. so what noon see was talking about. milwaukee county on the eastern side of wisconsin. hillary clinton got 236,000 total votes that have been totaled right now. barack obama got about 100,000 more. in milwaukee county. you could say, one conclusion there. then in dane county, another democratic county she got the identical number of votes barack obama did. did she not turn them out in milwaukee? or is there absentee, some votes that are, is that what is the hold up that there, because, if she was able to do it in dane, being off by 100,000 in milwaukee. >> huge number. >> a little surprising. that may be one of the reasons that milwaukee is, we should,
12:10 am
trump has a lead of, a little close to 80,000 votes. >> look at where the race is now. after that i want to show you pennsylvania. but first look at the nation as a whole. this is where the electoral vote stands right now. hillary clinton, 218. donald trump, 244. now that hasn't changed in a very long time. because we are waiting for these states in white. the vote totals are so close in those states that we have been ab now in pennsylvania -- that is the largest state in terms of electoral votes. still in play. pennsylvania has 20 electoral votes. have a look at this. donald trump 2,# # 6. hillary clinton 2,810. so, he has a -- he has a lead, significant lead.
12:11 am
we have about 1% of the vote in pennsylvania that has the yet to be counted. and if you look at the -- third party candidate. gary johnson. 141,000 votes. had those swung hillary clinton's way, she would be winning pennsylvania. and that would perhaps save her chances to become the 45th president of the united states. but that is not the way it has worked out. donald trump now has slender numerical majorities in all five of the swing states that are outstanding. he only needs to win, depending on the state, two or three of these. hillary clinton would have to win nearly all of them. and with donald trump leading in those states, that seems very unlikely. >> are we anywhere close to,
12:12 am
>> we may be inching closer to it, bob, but john, do you have any insight on that? >> i agree. have to talk to anthony. wisconsin, had a record absentee ballots. milwaukee county would be one where you have a probably lot of absentee ballots. the count is so down from obama 2012, suggest is a good place for exploration with anthony. >> anthony salvant ocht dto numbers with his team for us over there. >> scott, have any of you ever seen a case like this. i know we have been saying this all night. never seen. never candidate says i am goin home? ever seen anything? >> gore did it. >> the other candidates. >> there was in ohio as i recall in 2004, long lines, charges that the vote wasn't counted, there was kind of a discussion
12:13 am
extended, i think i was covering the white house. remember going up to the family residence at like 2:00 in the morning. >> john kerry didn't give his concession speech until wednesday afternoon. so, this is not that far in the past that -- that this happened. >> i take it we are not going home for a while. >> apparently not. >> i mean. >> no matter what john podesta says we'll be here. >> tech nick nically. o here. >> got the table. why not. >> cbs this morning. >> major garrett. >> be on the air shortly. >> major garrett at the trump campaign. i assume they're still hanging in there. >> yes, everyone is hanging in here. they're waiting for the moment. when john podesta, chairman of hillary clinton's campaign was shown on the large screens here, there were the lusty boos you would expect that. then the chant came. the chant i have heard 100 times if i've heard it once.
12:14 am
there is i think we should point out, if there isn't a concession from hillary clinton tonight and clearly there will not be, if it drags on into the morning, there will be friction between these two campaigns. as a result of hillary clinton's decision not to appear, number one, numb bar ter two, not conc. what will donald trump do with the results. waiting for pennsylvania, wisconsin, michigan to be called three states. i just received a text from governor corbett of pennsylvania, says certain looking at all the results. 99.2% of the vote. trump is going to win pennsylvania. the trump campaign is waiting for definitive calls. ironically, by the news organizations he heaped so much condemnation on on the stump. one other bit of irony. those in trump's circle, find it
12:15 am
this morning, at this precipice of the presidential election, possibly, leaning in donald trump's direction it is hillary clinton who is showing hesitation about accepting the results. not donald trump. we all remember what ensued after the third debate when he left that an open question. the trump inner circle find that among the most richly ironic aspects of this early morning on wednesday. >> major garrett at the trump headquarters for us. believe us, folks, the these races we are going to do it. and you are going to be the first to know. but the vote totals are so close in these remaining states that we are unable to do that yet. however, we will keep trying on the other side of this commercial break.
12:16 am
more "doing chores for mom" per roll bounty is more absorbent, so the roll can last 50% longer than the leading ordinary brand. so you get more "life" per roll. bounty, the quicker picker upper my belly pain and constipation?
12:17 am
re." i know that. "try laxatives..." i know. believe me. it's like i've. tried. everything! my chronic constipation keeps coming back. i know that. tell me something i don't know. (vo) linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation, or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children under 6 and it should not be given to children 6 to 17. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms
12:18 am
>> we're back talking about the extraordinary thing in the country. the closeness of the race for president. joining me my guests. let's talk about the democrats. let's talk about 2004. when you were working for george bush. >> right. >> 43. >> 43. >> and john kerry and there was a question. >> question about that night. we debated should we give a victory speech. >> the he hough he hadn't conce. >> the trump people are debating now. president bush decided no, let's wait. let him do the right thing. he called mid morning the next morning. gracious call. and i expect that to happen tomorrow, depending on the outcome we see tonight with hillary clinton. >> ruth? >> i, if the numbers are clear, as we were talking about before,
12:19 am
call. hillary clinton has a terrific role model for that in al gore whose concession speech -- >> magnanimous. >> very magnanimous. talks about helping the new president govern the country. that's the tone if results are clear hillary clinton and the democrats should try to strike. >> i think that the brawl is going to come in congress. republicans look like they have only lost three or four seats tonight. it appears that republicans wil so they're going to have the presidency, the house, the senate. and the fight is going to be between bernie sanders and the more moderates, elizabeth warren and bernie sanders together. on the house side it is going to be the same kind of tough. >> since the republicans if in fact trump wins and in fact the senate as you suggest and the house looks like it will be that way. what can the democrats do? >> in the senate side they can throw monkey wrench.
12:20 am
the senate has the the capability of stopping everything that trump and republicans want to do by using senate rules. here's the question. >> fell bust -- filibuster. >> i wonder how trump will stand for the filibuster. we were expecting to have conversation as but the future of the republican party how they needed to regroup. we will have to have the conversation about the future of the democratic party was this a failure of the candidate. she talked about how she is notg husband. she came with this e-mail problem from the very opening moments of the campaign, that never went away. or is there a broader failure of the party to be able to speak to the kind of working class voters that trump seemed to energize. >> a grand irony. we talked a lot about whether trump would accept the results. >> right. >> now the question is not that. >> right. >> i think hillary clinton's followers are going to have a tough time accepting the results too. it is going to be difficult in
12:21 am
bitterness of this campaign. to accept the legitimacy of an outcup that is not favorable. ultimately americans have to give a new president a chance. i have a tough time saying that. i think that's going to be necessary at the beginning of this system. >> let's go back to scott and norah at the desk. >> we have just learned that donald trump has arrived at his campaign watch party here in new rk certainly premature to be making a victory speech because he hasn't won. this is the vote totals as we have them now. hillary clinton, 218, donald trump, 245. certainly well within range of becoming the 45th president of the united states. there you can see his watch party. the folks at -- at the hillary clinton watch party were just told go home. nothing is going to happen tonight.
12:22 am
clearly the trump campaign is not following the same advice. they're expecting one or more of these states to be declared in the next hour or so. and in so doing, he will go over 270. and become the neck president of the united states. it is not over for hillary clinton, there are possible ways to win. but it is certainly not leaning in her direction now. >> donald trump who prizes winning above all things i almost 2:30 in the morning. without a concession, we don't have any reporting abut whether they have had a phone conversation or whether the campaigns have spoken. but inside the trump campaign, we know that the, they're feeling quite good. >> well they have plenty of roone how reason to feel good. wisconsin, pennsylvania. michigan all numbers going in his direction. minnesota looks like it is going towards hillary clinton.
12:23 am
votes. so that's four states that are -- in the balance. >> a lot of conversation yesterday -- days are running together. yesterday, the day before. when donald trump said, if i don't win this election it will have been a total waste of my time and my money. and many people speck lated that's not something a normal, that you norally hear from a candidate under any circumstances. eric trump was here, well, charlie, you asked the question. he said well my dad is a winner. he only thinks about >> donald trump. >> clearly what is happening. what he was thinking tonight. >> donald trump has picked up another electoral vote. he picked up the look torl vote in the first congressional district of maine. maine and nebraska are the only two states that are not winner take all. and so he has picked up one more. so that's 245. to hillary clinton's 218. major garrett is telling us that
12:24 am
and of course, we'll switch right over there as soon as he appears on the stage. >> i suspect many people are asking, how long does it take them to count all these ballots? >> yes. >> i know, charlie, i said an hour ago. in theage of 2016, with all of the technology, i am very curious about what that process is like? do you have any intel on that, john? >> every state is different. >> the states are all different. as scott said. and just -- the one electorlech th means the 269-269 possibility is no long ear life. so that's. >> there cannot be a tie now. >> i don't believe. i haven't run the scenarios. one that would get you to 269 has just been undone by that one electoral vote. >> we are waiting for the final vote counts in the states that will make the difference. we are also waiting for donald trump. we'll be back in just a moment.
12:25 am
12:26 am
12:27 am
things you say as a victor about your opponent have the -- have the slight conflict with the fact that she said he is going to have his attorney general investigate hillary clinton if he is elected president. so that adds another bit of context to what he may or may not say tonight. >> no, charlie when you mention david brooks' article earlier today. he said any decent society rests on codes of etiquette and share a moral ecology to make it will be very interesting to see what happens. when donald trump takes the stage. >> part of the reason he may be coming over. he has always felt a strong commitment to his supporters. this nay be a sense to go over and say, she has gone home. and they're not going to concede. i just want to come over here and thank you guys. >> that's right. eve of them had to say something. it is 2:30 in the morning. you have to go over and say something, which is come back tomorrow. or we think we are doing well. and donald trump has decided he wants to deliver that message himself.
12:28 am
pay us a little visit. he is up. we know he is up. he knows the way. been here before. >> if you are watching our election coverage, mr. trump, please consider that an invitation. >> yes, we have room. >> big table. >> media check for you. on twitter, the term president trump has 1.46 million tweets right now. >> already. >> already. at this late hour, or early hour, depending on when you got that's what we are seeing right now. also a tweet from kellyann conway responding to a tweet from a reporter, which reads, stunned that hillary clinton did not concede. if real donald trupp pulled that people would go bananas. kellyann conway responds, this is the truest tweet ever. >> no need to concede yet. because -- this race isn't quite over. we will have more for you in
12:29 am
12:30 am
>> pelley: it's election night on cbs and we are watching these final vote totals coming in. if you didn't vote today because you thought your vote wouldn't count, how wrongou many of these states. let's have a look at the electoral vote board as the race stands right now, hillary clinton 215 electoral votes, donald trump 244. that hasn't changed lately because the states you see in white are so close we cannot even estimate who the winner is going to be yet. we are watching the last vote
12:31 am
states and it is that what we're going to have to rely on in order to tell you who has won them. but we can say at this point in the five swing states, donald trump does have a small knew nuc lead in all of those. he is knocking on the door of 1600 pennsylvania avenue and it could be pennsylvania that puts if you have a look at the board there, donald trump with 2.8 million votes, hillary clinton 2.7 million votes. it doesn't get a whole lot closer than that, folks. now here is wisconsin, also, a very close result. let's have a look at the battlegrounds in their entirety. there were 13 states at the ebeginning of -- at the
12:32 am
yesterday, and 13 battleground states that were going to decide the election. the ones marked in red are the ones we've estimated will go to donald trump, the ones in blue hillary clinton and the ones not colored are the states outstanding. john dickerson, how has donald trump done this? >> he's done it by running up the score in the rural parts of america, in the parts when we first met with donald trump back in 2015 in his office he said he needed to turn out the vote that mitt romney couldn't turn out in the conservative base at the he knew was there and he knew he would be able to turn out and he did. >> pelley: the conventional wisdom -- sorry, gayle -- is what the republican party must do in order to win is bring in women, african-americans, latinos, and donald trump has repudiated that and proven that that was not the case. >> that's right. there was a bit of a debate
12:33 am
presidential election cycle or whether you had to get on your way to doing it because the demographic changes would hurt the party in 2020. well, he said forget all that, and he went and did it his own way and found his own people to do it. >> he also said all along he didn't need the g.o.p. establishment to accomplish what he wanted to do and he certainly didn't. didn't. and we should pile up the things against him including the and allies plus the celebrities plus all the other media in the kind of popular media, the entertainers were against him. he had a lot going against him. >> he smirked at the clinton campaign the other day when he said there is no j. lo, no jay-z, no katy perry, it's just me and i don't sing and look at the crowd that came just to see me, and i tell you, it's a
12:34 am
>> he was right about that. money is the milk of politics, he says. hillary clinton outspent donald trump by a lot. hillary clinton raised about $1.3 billion including state party committees. donald trump, it was about 800 million. she had about a $500 million advantage. she creamed him when it was on the airways in the summer, she way outspent him. she was on the airways when he wasn't. so he's managed to despite some of the structural advantages that favored the democrats. >> pelley: about six hours ago, there were high spirits at the clinton campaign headquarters here in manhattan but that changed dramatically. nancy cordes is here for us this morning. nancy? >> i just talked to a democratic strategist close to the clinton campaign who said no one is considering this over yet, they
12:35 am
haven't heard a lot of over the past few hours and that is james comey. he argued the reason the clinton campaign was surprised by the close races in wisconsin, michigan and pennsylvania is partly because no one could have seen this bombshell coming two weeks ago, that the f.b.i. director would send a letter to congress informing him his agent were looking at new e-mails relate to hillary clinton's use of a hand many other democrats are going to argue that that turned off a lot of white working class voters who were trying to decide at that point between hillary clinton and donald trump, and further they argued that even a couple of days ago comey essentially sent another letter saying never mind, we've looked at these e-mails, it doesn't change our fundamental understanding of the case. all that did was inject the
12:36 am
the end of the race. it's essentially one day before election day. so you will see a lot of democrats arguing that he had a role to play if she loses in her loss. republicans, on the other hand, will say if she hadn't used a private email account and server in the first place then he wouldn't have sent any letters at all. >> pelley: let's remember the days before the democratic having a knock-down, drag-out fight with bernie sanders who generated a national movement of his own on the democratic side. how much do you think that hurt hillary clinton? >> i think it was very difficult for her because, during that race, bernie sanders tied her very closely to wall street over and over again, he called her the candidate of wall street, and that was something that hadn't been a huge problem for her historically but that
12:37 am
firms in the year leading up to her decision to get into the race really showed people felt she was the insider. so he did come around in the general election and get behind her, but he was more convincing making a case against trump than he was making a case for clinton. and in some of these states, i think you will see that the margin of trump could ent up being close to the number of votes that these third-party candidates wrapped up, and those are votes primarily coming from young people, from disaffected supporters of bernie sanders, in many cases, who might have otherwise gone for hillary clinton. >> we had an exit poll about an
12:38 am
today made up their mind a month ago. although when you look at the results tonight, i guess the exit polls don't hold a lot of credibility at this particular time -- >> on cbs this morning, he said he didn't think it had that kind of impact. , too she had an array of sur surrogates. the president and first lady, former president, elizabeth warren, bernie sanders, joe biden, all out for her himself. >> you know why they say it didn't matter at the time, there will be a lot of people in whose interests it will be if donald trump wins the presidency to argue to get themselves off the hook and explain why it didn't work out. >> he did say that right after, no, they don't think that had any effect whatsoever. >> in full disclosure, i was a philosophy major not a math
12:39 am
this math, as we put that up on the board trump 244 and clinton 215, these are the states that are remaining, that add up to 79 votes. am i right, bob is this. >> right. arithmetic teacher mary hager corrected my figures and you're absolutely right. >> so we're hanging right in the middle. we have a number of states here. some of these are of them up on the board, we can talk about them, but this is where we stand at 1:40 in the morning and why we haven't called this race tonight. >> can i just say you might not have been a math major but you have very good penmanship, very easy to read, thank you. >> it is the least likely possibility, but there is still a possibility of a tie. >> there's still a possibility.
12:40 am
house of representatives would decide who the president of the united states is and the senate would decide who the vice president is. >> and the way there would be a tie is there are two states in the electoral college map that split their votes by congressional district. those two states are maine and nebraska. so main still has four electoral votes. we've not called that. those can split three plus one or two plus -- >> three and one. and ka electoral -- >> there are a lot of people in bed already looking and saying when are they going to be able to call this thing? >> we don't know. this is a lot still to call with a lot of reports -- >> you're talking about 90, 95% of the votes in in all of those places. >> where there are razor e-thin margins, and anthony is telling us they're hearing through the
12:41 am
that for some reason haven't been counted. >> is it all about the absentee ballots at this time? >> in the midwestern states that aren't being called, looks like when you look in every county, looks like 99% of the vote. >> where are the absentee ballots, y'all? >> part of the problem, is also, gayle, they think they have all the vote in but in the they're not sure. >> sometimes, particularly true where i grew up in texas, they'd put the votes in the trunk of the car, drive home and next morning get up and deliver the votes to the county seat. >> or see how many they needed. how many ever made it out of the trunk? >> but one of these states we're talking about and waiting on is the state of wisconsin. we now show it -- cbs news shows it as leaning for donald trump.
12:42 am
chip reid has been following the campaign in wisconsin. chip? >> reporter: well, hi, scott. you can see behind me that they've torn this room apart here. this is where paul ryan had his victory celebration tonight on his reelection for his ninth term for the house of representatives and we are told that earlier this evening paul ryan called donald trump and congratulated him on his big night and they say they had a very nice conversation. it's a ver we're going to see between these two if donald trump does pull out this victory because you may recall that a month ago after that tape was released, the billy bush tape in which donald trump talked so rudely and lewdly about women, paul ryan was so offended that he said he wassent going to defend him anymore and he wasn't going to campaign with him. that really angered a lot of trump supporters and tonight
12:43 am
ou keep paul ryan from being reelected as speaker. so you've got a real drama going on here in wisconsin aside from the fact that this race is so close and, by the way, when we first came out here a few days ago to cover this, we didn't come to cover it as a battleground state, we came to cover the battle between trump and rhine. it only became a battleground state today. so people really missed what was going on here. >> pelley: chip reid in wisconsin for us also, we should make note that the democrats needed to pick up five seats in order to take control of the senate, and they have failed to do that. the senate will remain in republican hands. we will have the latest vote totals for you when we come back as election night on cbs
12:44 am
ugh. heartburn. sorry ma'am. no burning here. try new alka-seltzer heartburn relief gummies. they don't taste chalky and work fast. mmmm. incredible. can i try? she doesn't have heartburn. new alka-seltzer heartburn relief gummies.

>> pelley: okay. one more time from our experts. we have mark, and michelle. think about this and what do we add to this conversation, donald
12:47 am
>> that is the question. it is someone who has not pivoted really to anything and has been one of the more sort of overused buzz words in this whole election. he never pivoted to being a nominee. am mostly grateful to president-elect, whose eful to leadership and vision will make america great again! so let me say it is my honor, and distinct privilege to introduce to you the president-elect of the united
12:48 am
>> donald trump, not having officially won yet, just shy of the 270 necessary. but certainly the states that he needs to go over the top, are all leaning in his direction. and the trump campaign claiming victory. cbs news has just projected the state of wisconsin will also go trump's way. no big surprise there. that brings him to 266. four short of what he needs to win the election.
12:49 am
outstanding states are, leaning his way. there doesn't seem to be any mystery in this any more. as donald trump takes the stage in front of his fans and all of his campaign workers there. at his watch potter in manhattan. >> cbs news has not yet called the election as we are waiting for vote to come in, in a number of states. but, mike pence has just what he said is the next president of the united states. donald trump who has never run for political office. and in his first bid for office. has managed to capture 266 electoral votes. and is on his way to winning the presidency. >> he became a republican in 2012. >> here is donald trump. >> yes. >> thank you.

rudy never changes. where is rudy? where is he? rudy. governor chris christie, folks, was unbelievable. thank you, chris. the first man, first senator, first major, major politician, let me tell you he is highly respected in washington because he is as smart as you senator jeff sessions. where is jeff? a great man. another great man, tough competitor. he was not easy. he was not easy. who is that? is that the mayor that showed up? is that rudy?
1:00 am
another great man who has been really a friend to me, but i will tell you, i got to know him as a competitor, because he was one of the folks that was negotiating to go against those democrats. dr. ben carson. where is ben? where is ben? and by the way, mike huckabee is here some place, he is fac. mike and his family, sarah. thank you very much. general mike flynn. where is mike? and general kellogg. we have over 200 generals and admirals that have endorsed our campaign. and they're special people. it is really an honor the we have 22 congressional medal of honor recipients. just tremendous people.
1:01 am
believed me and, you know i would read reports that i wasn't getting along with him. i never had a bad second with him. he is an unbelievable star. he is, that's right, how did you possibly guess? so, let me tell you about reince. i have said this. i said, reince, i know it. i know it. look at all the people over there. i know it. reince is a superstar. but i said, they can't call you a superstar, win. you can't be called a superstar, like secretariat, if secretariat came in second, secretariat would not have that big beautiful, bronze bust at the track. at belmont. i will tell you reince is really a star. he is the hardest working guy. and in a certain way i did this, reince, come up here. get over here, reince, boy, oh,
1:02 am
reince. my god. say a few words. >> no, come on. say something. ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the united states, donald trump! thank you it has been an honor. god bless. thank god. >> you bet. >> amazing guy. >> our partnership with the rnc was so important to the so i also have to say. i have got in to know some incredible uh people. the secret service people. they're tough and they're smart. and they're sharp. and i don't want to mess around with them. i can tell you. and when i want to go and wave to a beg group of people and they rip me down and put me back down. but they are fantastic people.
1:03 am
and -- law enforcement in new york city. they're here tonight. these are -- spectacular people. some times underappreciated unfortunately. but we appreciate them. we know what they go through. so, it's been what they call an historic event. but to be really historic, we have to do a great job. and i promise you that i will not let you down. we will do a great job. we will do a great job. i look very much forward to being your president. and hopefully at the end of two years or three years or four years or maybe even eight years, you will say, so many of you
1:04 am
will say that that was something that you were really very proud to do. and i can, thank you very much. and i can only say that while the campaign is over, our work on this movement is now really just beginning. we are going to got to work immediately for the american people. and we are going to be so proud of your president you will be so proud. again. it's my honor. it is an amazing evening, an amazing two year period. and i love this country. thank you. thank you very much. thank you to mike pence, thank you, everybody. >> congratulations, mr. president.
1:05 am
states. giving a conciliatory speech tonight. thanking his supporters. thanking his family. talking about the need to bind the wounds of division in this country. and saying, our work is really just now beginning. thanking hillary clinton. in a way that we haven't heard before that we owe her a debt of ud that he wants to be the uniter of all people. and he made a point of saying, i am the president of all people. >> it was a very untrumplike speech from what we have heard throughout the campaign. >> well we will ask him whether he could be conciliatory, and magnanimous in defeat. we found out that he can be magnanimous in victory. >> i can be politically correct, so absolutely politically correct when the moment calls
1:06 am
like that. he gave it. >> bob, talk about now, the challenges for sum within as they transition from booing a candidate to trying to govern and becoming -- filling that office, the awesomeness of the office and the responsibilities that go with it. >> i think we are kind of in unchartered territory now. we, really don't know. this is -- this is a totally new and different group. than we have seen arrive in washington before. where this goes from here. i mean it is different. it's -- this was a different campaign. and what happens now is different as well. >> i think it is encouraging to say he wants to reach out to all americans. campaign is over. the work is just beginning. that he wants to do a good job for everybody. we haven't heard him speak that way before. >> because he said he wanted partnership, not conflict.
1:07 am
the first person to become president of the united states without having held previous elected office since dwight eisenhower. he did it without the advantage of having won world war ii. >> here is the immediate challenge for him. the rhetoric was basically about as good as we have heard from him and you could deliver. he will have a supreme court seat to fill right hillary clinton would probably not have. talking to republicans in the senate. they would have voted him through. so he has a supreme court. supreme court fights get nasty pretty fast. there is that. plus, the, dismantling of obama care. the building of the wall. his policy agenda. right away. is -- is one that, that is going to require some, some massaging. so that will be interesting. where he puts his marker as he starts to talk about.
1:08 am
we have a republican senate. and a republican congress. >> there is a filibuster in the senate. >> they filibuster the senate. his supreme court nominee. which will return the court to being a conservative majority. then you are going to have a fight in washington. >> you don't know where the other part its. this is going to be. i don't care what you see. this is going to be greet with surprise. around the world. >> maybe, maybe, russia's pleased with it. as -- as we were hearing. from, from our reporter. i don't know how the rest of the world is going to react with, to this, except with surprise. they're going to find it hard to believe. i think. >> they'll probably react depending on how he maintains a sense that he did in this speech or in terms of the people that he chooses, selects to be in his cabinet. that will be an indication of what kind of government he wants to have. >> major garrett is at the trump campaign headquarters.
1:09 am
scott, everyone else on the panel. talking governing. my sources within the trump transition team tell me that, as of last thursday, all of the work set before that transition team had been completed. meaning they put together all of the policy binders. put together all the binders on possible cabinet and sub-cabinet nominations apin theees. put together all of the bindings on other political appointis that a future trump presidency should it occur might have to have ready for the work to begin so that work, by the transition team, has been completed. and is ready for donald trump, now president-elect of the united states. so when donald trump told the country tonight, he is going to got to work. he has plenty of binders and plenty of staffers on that transition team. who have done the work for him. to begin that process. couple of other observations. donald trump has said from the very beginning of this campaign, that he saw something in america
1:10 am
and in terms of people who wanted to be a part of a rejuvenated american dream but felt that was no longer open to them. he tried to speak to those people. before he spoke to anyone else. in a way. that they fundamentally understood without any filtering from any other source. and even when controversies would arise. and trump's poll numbers would dip or there would be some defections from the republican party over something that trump said. those people, who heard trump first. never left his side. trump was speaking to them tonight when he talked about a country to be proud in. a country that will aim for the best. never accept anything less than the best. those word always rez nated with his supporters. one last historical analogy that i have never forgotten since newt gingrich. long term trump supporter put before me several months ago. to understand donald trump, you have to understand three american figures. andrew jackson. a populist president who toppled
1:11 am
washington. teddy roosevelt. a republican president who challenged the existing republican approach to business. and was a person of strength and projected strength. and pt barnum. some one who marketed himself for the benefit of his business and image of himself. newt gingrich told me, donald trump is a combination of all three of those figures. and his upside potential is enormous. and downside risk is also rather sizable. even in the last days of the openly if trump, the downside would undercut the potential upside. it did not. the upside now lays before the country. lays before trump. and his transition team. guys back to you. >> and, nancy cordes is over at the jacob javits center in new york where hillary clinton's watch party broke up about an hour ago. >> nancy? >> scott, the lights are out
1:12 am
to start tearing this whole set apart. what is so fascinating is that for all of the talk over the past many weeks about the possibility of donald trump not accepting the outcome of this election, in the end, it was hillary clinton and her campaign chair, john podesta speaking for her who came out after 2:00 eastern time and told everyone to go home because things were still up in the air. yet a short time later, we can now confirm, hillary clinton did call donald trump to concede. a is the one who has not delivered a concession speech at least on election night. i am told that there are number of clinton campaign officials still at brooklyn headquarters, crunching the numbers. trying to figuree out what went wrong. trying to figuree out if there are any voting irregularities that, they should examine or call attention to. every single campaign aide i have seen here tonight, scott,
1:13 am
they weren't just confident at the beginning of the night that she was going to win, they were sure of it. there was no other possible outcome. in their mind. not because they were cocky or being fanciful but because all of the data that they were looking at was telling them that she was going to win. and that may be part of the reason that you never saw her here tonight. which is, just like her campaign aides, it was very difficult for hillary clinton to accept the news as well. >> nancy rd an interesting point she makes there. about as much data, polling, money, consultants, the whole obama analytics team, could not fend off what has been an incredible uprising for change in this country and for the unique person that donald trump is. >> you know it will be fascinating when he starts to govern. because a lot of times when people would say, well you know you are supposed to do it this way. not doing it that way. doing it the other way.
1:14 am
in fact when things were too calm he some times would create chaos to turn the conversation on his turf. what does that look like when you govern it? may be the route to new success in a number of parts of washington that have been clotted. but it is going to be an exciting ride. and there are going to be a lot of people who need to join in the team who may not know how to work or need to learn how to work in an environment where you have got a leader who leads in that way. that will be, we have never seen a, a led like that. in part because the office constrains you, you can't do it. but on the other hand we thought there was a lot in politics that constrained him. nothing did. >> guys, he said all along from the very beginning. this was not a campaign. this was a movement. he made, made reference to that again tonight. a movement he says of hard working people who love their country. and at least from the numbers we are looking at right now. close to 58 million people, agreed with him. that this is a movement.
1:15 am
a reaction to a washington that has ceased to work. the purpose of government is to improve the lives of citizens. our government has been just gridlocked. it's been unable to do anything. i said earlier today, you know it took him eight months to approve funds to find the vaccine for the zika virus. this is a reaction to what didn't hap men as much as it was a victory for his people tonight. >> and charlie rose has the insights of our political panel. charlie. >> scott, thank you. you can say that everybody who achieved the presidency, somehow it changes them. they can't imagine what it is look to be there and to feel the burd in of the office. and his first official act, to accept the concession from secretary clinton, donald trump did it with some grace. and, respect for his opponent.
1:16 am
been working hard on the transition and that they have reams of books and had thought deeply about what they would do if the opportunity to girch came. i turn next to peggy noonan. thoughts? >> i think his victory speech which many people including perhaps he did not know he would be making tonight. was a very, was one that was worthy to the moment. it showed us a trump who was graver than usual, who was m he said things like, no dream is too big. no challenge is too great. he reached out. i think he was trying very hard, i think he was being sensitive to those he understood he had to reassure the one half of the united states of america that did not vote for him. so i thought it was -- equal to the moment. and i was glad to see its tone and hear its ring.
1:17 am
he spoke in an ok taf that we have not heard thus far in the campaign. and, and with a cadence that we haven't heard. this was perhaps his first demonstration of something as, as a leader that we hadn't seen before. he didn't throw an elbow. but he also talked about rebuilding. it will be interesting to know what that means. is he just talking about infrastructure? is he just talking about building the economy? or also talking about unspooling the legacy of barack obama? barack been consequential. and for some people they view it as something that has been quite successful. will he start taking apart key provisions of the obama legacy? and so it sounded quite graceful. but was he also sending a signal. that change is coming. big change is coming. >> charlie, what i keep coming become to and thinking about trump's victory. the implications we will see going forward. his coalition didn't just
1:18 am
college whites on an activist level, it clued steven ban non, identify themselves as white nationalists, parts of american life that have been suppressed for a very long time. so looking for ward, i think i am a little less interested in the mechanics of a trump government and more interested what does it moon that a candidate in a lot of ways ran with a nod and wink towards those people is now the president of the united states. but whut do what does that mean for muslim-americans, for the groups of people trump targeted in his campaign. i think that is the question that should be driving a lot of us going forward. because i do not think we should take lightly that, those facts. >> the question will be -- will he govern differently than the way he campaigned? often governing as some one, i think governor cuomo said, governing is pros and campaign and poetry. we well now see what the prose
1:19 am
>> i think one of the things that was said that was so important. governing is one thing. also the messages that you send. we have this -- odd moment in america where we are passing the baton from the nation's first black president to a candidate who was endorsed by the kkk and did not denuns that. a -- not denounce that. as president you send a message to the electorate. governance is one thing. but how people live and reaction on the ground is something different. >> about in the end. >> yes, of course. but let me -- >> you love words. >> i do indeed. i think we have witnessed tonight something epical and grave. i think it is the beginning of a new era whose shape and form and content are not known to us. and are not clear. whose personnel and exact direction are unknown.
1:20 am
i want my word to be, god bless our beloved country. >> it was hand historic night. we all look forward to understanding how it goes from here. back to scott and norah at the desk. >> brilliant conversation there, charlie, and some really interesting points to amplify here. what is barack obama going to say? he has called donald trump unfit. he called him and what will this mean for obama's legacy? it means it is in jeopardy? >> january 20th, president obama is going to be standing next to donald trump at the capitol watching him being sworn in. >> well, i mean, one of the first things that donald trump has said he is going to do is, roll back obamacare. which was -- the president's main legacy. and what other things are going to happen here? that -- as you know, and he is
1:21 am
congress. and there are priorities here that is going to have to take place. >> we're looking closer into the numbers about how trump pulled off this historic victory tonight. anthony mason has those details. anthony? >> thera. going to look at three pillars of trump's victory. the first was, male voters. men, he won them 53% to 41%. he also won whites without a college degree, by more than a 2:1 margin. 67% to 28%. voters told us the call they they wanted mosten their candidate. a candidate who could bring about change. among those voters. donald trump won 83%. so, huge landslide in that category there. the most important quality. and finally there was a lot of talk after the access hollywood tape and a lot of leading republicans pulled back their endorsement from donald trump. that republicans might in fact flee from him. well that didn't turn out to be the case today. he won nine out of ten republican voter.
1:22 am
gail? >> certainly did, anthony. continuing that conversation. according to the exit poll, 7 in ten said they were dissatisfied with the federal government. 58% of those who made that comment with donald trump. 36% of those went with hillary clinton. it goes back to what he said, from when he started this campaign, not a campaign, a movement of people. that certainly bore itself out today. >> now everybody knows it is only the electoral vote that counts. and donald trump has wonha decisively tonight. but have a look at how divided the country is. let's look at the popular vote. 57,600,000 for donald trump. 56,855,000 for hillary clinton. that's the popular vote as it is being counted right now. donald trump wins in the popular vote. yes indeed. but it's only about 1% difference. between the two. >> yes. you know, we have seen donald
1:23 am
speech. but those 56 million who voted for hillary clinton there are a lot of them who believe he came to this position by playing on racial fears, he was for five years the chief advocate of the idea that president obama was illegitimate he wasn't born in the united states. there are people on the other side of this who are not just going to accept this. we will see what the shape of that response will be and whose, who becomes the voice of that response. you mentioned barack obama t of response. but who, who is? who does? and we have yet to see that part of the story play out. >> yeah. >> couple things. one this is really an hiss toreic achieve. in america. an historic, nothing like this ever happened. secondly, you have to give him credit. he has achieved something that no one, from the beginning, ever believed she could do. >> elaine? >> on the point john was making abut racial decisions. david duke tweeted this is one
1:24 am
my life. make no mistake about it. our people have played a huge role in election trump, make america great again. now at the same time, as trump was reaching out tonight, i was reminded of the latinos that i met at the u.s./mexico border when i did a documentary, latinos for trump. among the most passionate supporters the they felt he was the one who was going to affect change in washington they truly believed in him from the beg controversies. >> bob, what are you reflection on this morning? >> i remember when richard nixon resigned. cbs news correspondent, roger mudd was part of the panel. after that happened. i said roger what is your reaction. he said, you know i think i want to go home and sleep a couple hours and i'll come back and tell you tomorrow. this was totally unexpected. i think certainly from those of
1:25 am
politic politics over the years, i think charlie is right. this is, this is historic. but i don't think we can say right now where this goes from here. >> unexpected not because of any interest in politics. but unexpected because of the polling. the polls were telling us, polls done by many different organizations, many different times, they were all pointing in the direction of the clinton victory. >> the polls and the behavior of the candidate that people said the united states, so many people had found his behavior egregious, at the end of the day it really didn't matter. i take, you know i take some hope in his speech tonight. that he said he wants to reach out. that he wants to build bridges. stand that he wants us al come together each of think that is a really great way to start in this country. there is a lot of healing that needs to happen today. >> if you look to your point, gail. on the questions of has the right experience and right judgment.
1:26 am
questions by large amounts and numbers. again not what people -- wanted. they wanted change over experience and judgment. >> they're fed up. >> all right. well -- >> yeah. >> change is what they will get. >> and it has been quite a night. >> we hope rerules by hope rather than fear. >> well, his conciliatory victory speech tonight was certainly a very good step in a next four years. we sure are grateful that you stayed here with us. all this time. >> yes, who are you people? >> some times raunchy election of 2016 now comes to a peaceful if improbable end. 70-year-old donald j. trump. sworn in as the 45th president of the united states on january 20th. >> the trump presidency begins in 72 days.
1:27 am
election coverage continues now on our streaming news service, cbsn. there will be much more in just a few hours. >> really? >> yeah. >> who is going to be here? >> charlie and i right back here. >> wearing these same clothes. >> for norah o'donnell and our entire campaign 2016 team, i'm scott pelley. thank you for being with us on cbs. >> i am officially running for president of the united states. >> >> when mexico sends it people, they're not sending their best. >> i'm running to help working families get a raise! >> we will make america great again. >> the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn e-mails. >> it is weak to disparage women. >> a man who can be provoked by a tweet should not be anywhere near the nuclear code. >> i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody. i wouldn't lose any voters.
1:28 am
hate. >> i humbly accept your nomination. >> for president of the united states. >> russia if you are listening, i hope you are able to find the 30,000 e-mails. >> i'm not making excuses. i said it was a mistake. i regret it. >> this is the single biggest scandal since watergate. >> there is no pay scale. >> we are going to win at the border wall. >> lock her up! >> you can put half of trump supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. >> she has tremendous hate in her heart. >> i don't care what he says about me. i care what he says about you. >> i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans.
1:29 am
1:30 am
>> announcer: this is the cbs "overnight news." it is my high honor and distinct privilege to introduce to you the president-elect of the united states of america, donald trump. ? ? >> i have just received a call from secretary clinton. she congratulated us, it is about us, on our victory and i congratulated her and her family on a very, very hard-fought campaign. i mean she -- she fought very
1:31 am
hillary has worked very long and very hard over a long period of time. and we owe her a major debt of gratitude for her service to our country. i mean that very sincerely. now it is time for america to bind the wounds of division, have to get together. to all republicans and democrats and independents across this nation, why say, it is time for us to come together asne united people. it's time. i pledge to every citizen of our land that i will be president for all americans and this is so
1:32 am
for those who have chosen not to support me in the ps, of which there were a few people, i am reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country. as i have said from the beginning, ours was not a campaign but rather an incredible and great movement made up of millions of hard working men and women who love their country and want a better brighter future for themselves and for their families. it is a movement comprised of americans from all races, religions, background and beliefs. who want and expect our
1:33 am
working together we will begin the urgent task of rebuilding our nation and renewing the american dream. i have spent my entire life in business, looking at the untapped potential in projects and in people all over the world. that is now what i want to do for our country. tremendous potential. i have gotten to know our country so well. tremendous potential. it is going to bea beautiful thing. every single american will have the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential. the forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no
1:34 am
we are going to fix our inner cities. and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals. we are going to rebuild our infrastructure. which will become, by the way, second to none. and we will put millions of our people to work as we rebuild it. of our great veterans. who have been so loyal. i have gotten to know so many over this 1 month journey. the time i have spent with them during this campaign has been among my greatest honors. our veterans are incredible people. we will embark upon a project of national growth and renewal. i will harness the creative
1:35 am
brightest to leverage their tremendous talent for the benefit of all. it is going to happen. we have a great economic plan. we will double our growth. and have the strongest economy anywhere in the world. at the same time -- we will get along with all other nations. willing to get along with us. we will be. we will have great relationships. we expect to have relationships. no dream is too big, no challenge is too great. nothing we want for our future is beyond our reach. america will no longer settle for anything less than the best. we must -- reclaim our country's destiny. and dream big and bold and daring. we have to do that. we are going to dream of things
1:36 am
things and successful things once again. i want to tell -- the world community -- that while we will always put america's interests first, we will deal fairly with everyone. with everyone. all people, and all other nations. we will seek common ground not hos pill t hostility. it has been what they call an historic event. but to be really historic, we and i promise you that i will not let you down. we will do a great job. we will do a great job. i look very much forward to being your president. and hopefully at the end of two years or three years or four years or maybe even eight years, you will say, so many of you worked so hard for us, but you will say, that -- you will say
1:37 am
were really very proud to do and i can -- thank you very much -- and i can only say -- that while the campaign is over, our work on this movement is now really just beginning. we are going to got to work immediately for the american people. and we are going to be doing a job that hopefully you will be so proud of your will be so proud. again, it's my honor. it was an amazing evening. it has been an amazing two-year period. and i love this country! thank you. thank you very much. >> thank you to mike pence. thank you, everybody. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> that was donald trump, the
1:38 am
giving a conciliatory speech tonight. thanking his supporters.
1:39 am
1:40 am
margaret brennan is at the margaret. >> well the crowd has gathered here, scott, but the silence from the white house is deafening. president obama argued that the very fate of the republic, his words, hinged on his election. and he was on the stump for his successor more than any other president in modern history. donald trump, a man he called uniquely unfit for office is going to deal obama's historic
1:41 am
clinton had promised that she would protect his signature achievement, obama care which has been damaged in recent months. she had pledged to undertake immigration reform. roll out environmental protections and defend that landmark nuclear deal with iran which trump says he is going to tear up. supreme court nominee, merrick garland doesn't look like he will get confirmed. that will leave us with a split supreme court. trump said he will renegotiate obama's free trade deal asia and other alliances. so this is going to make it very difficult on monday when president obama heads to europe to try to reassure allies that america is going to stand by their defense. particularly considering that trump has made friendly overtures to russia. how is he going to explain this pledge to possibly starting trade deal with china. so this is going to be really difficult for the white house to explain away in the light of day. but, scott, norah, president
1:42 am
america will still be the greatest nation on earth. i think it is safe to say, he didn't think he would wake up to this kind of result. >> margaret, it sounds like, and looks like there is a really large crowd around the white house. what's going on? >> scott, there has been a crowd gathering over the past few hours. it's gotten much, much larger in the past 30 minutes or so. you have seen more, secret se gate of the white house. just trying to protectively get things under control, or watch for any threats. but you have a mix here. you have got chants of black lives matter, you have got anti-donald trump chants, you have pro hillary chants. i see, red, white, blue balloons. some singing the american anthem. and other patriotic sounds earlier. so it is sort of hard to in many ways poll through the gate exactly where sentiment is.
1:43 am
of the political experts have been in predicting this outcome. >> margaret, thank you very much. january 20th, there is going to be a new resident in the most splendid of all public housing in america. there on pennsylvania avenue. charlie rose has some insightful panelists for us to listen to right now. charlie. >> indeed, scott. i began with frank. tell me, what do you think? >> this is inconceivable, five, six hours ago. first, all exit polling should be banned. the fact is the numbers were wrong. all the way across the stable. the 5:00 p.m. second wave got it wrong. second, still a hidden trump vote. people who refused to tell pollsters who they voted for will not acknowledge it. they will come out of the woodwork tonight. how do you address the anger?
1:44 am
tear up and blow up washington. they're going to have to figure out a way to work with them, the house, the senate. this is going to be the most chaos we have seen in washington in a long, long time. >> your belief is that trump has won? >> yes, had a chance to look at counties. i believe fromle will be the next president. >> peggy? >> there are, we should keep this in mind, tens of millions of americans who tonight who are experiencing this evening not only as a political event, and a spiritual event. they feel grateful, they feel they are, rebuking a decayed establishment that earned a rebuke in 25 ways. spoke to a friend, major trump supporter, told me, just speck to him. i said how did you react when you realize the this was going to happen? he is a tough, hard boiled guy,
1:45 am
this is really going to be something. he said, but it is the right thing we are certain. i leave it there. >> we often saw in this campaign, when the focus was on donald trump, his numbers went down. when the focus was on hillary clinton. her numbers went down. my question at this hour, of this election day, was this a -- victory for trump or a loss for hillary clinton? was it about trump? or clinton? >> well, i think it is hard to argue this isn't a victory for trump. his people came out in the right places in the right numbers. and brought an extraordinary upset. one of the, the largest in american history. >> not just political upset in america in history if he goes on to win this. >> my gosh in our lifetime, certainly. >> dewey defeats truman since 1948. >> i have to add this was also a validation of a certain kind of
1:46 am
ruthless. more personal than any i have seen in my lifetime. he has a huge burd in if he wins this election to do some form of outreach to say this is a single country. and not, not used up, groups, to, to attack. in that way. i don't know if he is capable of that. but every president has that. and this president more than others. >> if he wins not only the biggest upset of our political memory, is it also the most transformative election of who he was, how he campaigned and what he did? is it? >> i think that's fair. foreign policy, this is a total change from the reagan foreign policy. >> change from the bush foreign policy. i mean it is a removal, almost like kicking away from the past 15 years. i think is how. >> and his supporters, must say. trump said he would do this. and there is a remarkable thing.
1:47 am
accomplish what they accomplished tonight. it is quite an achievement. >> but they, the problem is, i have talked to supporters a lot in the last year. for your show. >> right. >> they want revenge. they dent waon't want cooperati. >> what does revenge mean? >> get even, the people in washington and wall street who did them down. >> what do you mean get even? >> got even with politicians. buy businesses who got rich and sent jobs, get even with society they think turned against them. one thing trump people half in common, they think they lost their america and they want it back. >> there is also confidence in a trust government. dow jones futures are going, down, down, down with great concern. >> that does feel like brexit. it does. very similar up turning of the establishment and then the financial establishment beginning to quake and quiver. we'll see what follows that.
1:48 am
with loyalists. he will need republicans. >> of course not. of course not. >> people like senator corker, secretary of state possibility. would be reassuring to foreign countries. make moves like that. >> okay. this question too. what's the possibility this election will be challenged and will half months and months of -- >> we'll see what kind of a margin we are looking at end of the night. if this is close, close, looks like may bov of questioning certain state outcomes. if it seems more definitive than that, i would think it appropriate that it be accepted and i would kind of expect that. although, mrs. clinton is not someone who, she is like trump, neither of them would be quick to do a concession speech. so we'll see how that goes. >> this is not about them. this is about their voters. their voters are going to protest. see it in front of the white house. mark my words tomorrow those
1:49 am
little dakota's nose was quivering in fear. because it knew an ordinary tissue was near. the fiery tissue left her nose sore and red. so dad slayed the problem with puffs plus lotion, instead. puffs have pillowy softness for dakota's tender nose. with lotion to comfort and soothe when she blows. don't get burned by ordinary tissues.
1:50 am
oftpack. i really did save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance with geico. i should take a closer look at geico... geico has a long history of great savings and great service. over seventy-five years. wait. seventy-five years? that is great. speaking of great, check out these hot riffs. you like smash mouth? uh, yeah i have an early day tomorrow so... wait. almost there. goodnight, bruce. (humming) take a closer look at geico. great savings.
1:51 am
1:52 am
this is the closest presidential elect icing have covered. in a number of states, extraordinarily close vote tallies. go to anthony mason, who can explain? >> we wanted to look at the exit polls to see what the recipe is for motivating trump voters. you could kind of, remember 1976 film network and, i'm mad as hell not going to take it any more. a howard beal coalition. voters told us they're angry at the federal government.
1:53 am
77% said the fight with isis is going badly. 57% told us trade is taking jobs away. i remember going back a decade, hearing middle class voters in ohio tell me they felt that washington protected the rich and protected the poor and forgot about them. in the last 16 years the median income in the country has not moved. that is a res cipe for anger. >> you can see they tore the room apart. this is where paul ryan had the his re-election for his ninth term to the house of representatives. and we are told that earlier this evening, paul ryan called donald trump and congratulated him on his big night and they say he had a, they had a very nice conversation. it is a very interesting dance we're going to see between these two if donald trump does pull out this victory. because you may recall that a month ago after that tape was released the billy bush tape, in which donald trump talked so
1:54 am
paul ryan was so offended he said he wasn't going to defend him anymore and wasn't going to, campaign with him. that really angered a lot of trump supporters. and tonight, some are saying that trump should do everything he can to keep paul ryan from being re-elected as speaker. so you have got a real drama going on here in wisconsin. aside from the fact that this race is so close. by the way when we first came out here, a few daysin to cover it as the a battleground state. we cam to cover the battle between trump and ryan. it only became a battleground state today. really. people really missed what was going on here. >> chip reid in wisconsin for us tonight. also we should make note, that -- the democarts needed to peck up five seats in order to take control of the senate. and they have failed to do that. the senate will remain in republican hands.
1:55 am
1:56 am
1:57 am
>> as we come to the end of the unprecedented presidential election. we take a lack back at some memorable moments including a few you might prefer to forget. ? ? >> ladies and gentlemen, today. >> here in >> inspired by the future. >> i am proud to announce. >> i have decided. >> i am running for president. >> it's nobody's turn. it is everybody's test. it is wide open. >> i won't talk about jeb bush. i will not say, i will not that he is low energy. i will not say it. >> it's lyin'. >> i'm looking at little marco. >> see his hand. >> you called women you don't like.
1:58 am
disgusting animals. >> only rosie o'donnell. >> you know, kiss, kiss. when you're a star they let you do it. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. >> we will win at the border. >> i could stand in the middle of fifth avenue and shoot somebody. i wouldn't lose any voters. >> donald j. trump is calling for a total complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. >> have you even read the united states constitution? i will gladly lend you my copy. >> let me say something that may not be great politics. and that is that the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn, e-mails. >> me too. me too. >> you talk about leveling with the american people have you always told the truth. >> i have always tried to. >> some people are going to call that wiggle room. >> i am with you. i will fight for you.
1:59 am
>> because, hillary clinton, my daughters, now take for granted that a woman can be president of the united states. >> after all when there are no ceilings, the sky is the limit. >> i have much better judgment than she does. i also have a much better temperament than she has. >> ooh, okay. >> the people at home cannot understand either one of you. >> it is just awfully good that some one with the temperament of donald trump is not in charge of the lawen our country. >> because you'd be in jail. >> do you make the commitment you will ak absolutely accept the result of this election. >> i will tell you at the time. keep you in suspense. >> that's horrifying. >> this is not the way we do it in the united states of america. >> none of us want to wake up wednesday morning and wish we had done more. >> if we don't win, this will be the single greatest waste of
2:00 am
life. >> don't boo. vote. ? ? it is my high honor and distinct privilege to introduce to you the president-elect of the united states of donald trump. >> i just received a call from secretary clinton. she congratulated us, it's about us, on our victory and i congratulated her and her family
