something or they think they will keep the press out of there which they didn't do. >> i believe they are protecting the aircraft from small arms fire. i wasn't here when it went into effect. >> reporter: the associated press says it raises serious questions if the police used the no-fly zone to violate the first amendment rights of journalists. st. louis county police chief john belmar insists the restrictions were put in place to keep the public and pilots safe. not to keep media out. >> the faa started this conservation with the police department because of the number of shots that were fired. this is reported. we have air crews seeing muzzle flashes. >> reporter: on monday, chief belmar was asked about the recording. >> i think they are taken out of context and they are informal conversations that happened between somebody there and somebody saying well, i guess it
7:16 am
is the media. i can't explain that to be honest with you. i wasn't there. >> reporter: we contacted the faa for comment and it gave us the statement. when local law enforcement reports the danger to aircraft and guns fired into the air that could impact low flying aircraft, they will err on the side of safety. the faa will not prevent the media from covering an event. tom magliozzi died, he was the host of "car talk." we have a look at the legacy of two grease monkeys from boston. good morning. >> good morning. tom magliozzi worked as an auto mechanic. he and his brother ray toiled on the radio. they spoke to millions of listeners each week. their weekly program started at wbir in boston and picked up in

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it's election day, tuesday, november 4th, 2014. don't forget to vote. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead including the voters who could force president obama to change the way he does business. but first, here's a look at today's eye opener at 8:00. >> nobody disputes that this is going to be anything but a good night for republicans. the question is, how good? >> there's going to be a lot of activity because republicans have said if we take power the next question will be, okay, what are you going to do with it? >> an al qaeda affiliate has positions that were held by moderate rebel groups. in a new offensive -- >> more and more gas mileage is
8:01 am
becoming the most important factor for car buyers. justice department has accused kia and hyundai of huging the numbers to sell more cars. >> when president obama visited here in september, tate says he was fired for just doing his job. >> but i always try to do the right thing. i don't -- i know this is not right. this team was not in benghazi but the hope is that this training could make a difference in future assaults. >> my favorite one was a caller said, my goats are destroying my girlfriend's convertible top when i come visit. he said, i suggest you meet at the motel 6. >> this is the high watermark of show business as far as i'm concerned. >> god bless you. >> are you going to prepare for the last show or wing it like the last 6,000? this morning's eye opener at 8:00 is presented to you by benefib benefiber. i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. americans get a chance this
8:02 am
morning to elect 36 governors, 36 senators, and 435 members of congress. postals say only a few people with vote with great enthusiasm. a no jority will not father to show up at all. >> republicans expect to pick up seats in this midterm election. the party not in the white house usually does. nine battleground states are likely to determine if the gop takes control of the senate for the first time in six years. >> cbs news political director john dickerson is here along with frank luntz. good morning and happy election day. john, let's talk about tonight. how likely is it fra republicans will win the senate? >> well, it looks like that it's likely but we're all used to surprises in politics so i feel it's dangerous to say that. every democrat i'm talking to, i got an e-mail back this morning, somebody said, well, i would be lying if i said it looks awesome.
8:03 am
yuc yuf i'ms but they're not good ones. frank, it looks likely, you say you shouldn't take it as a mandate. why? >> well, cbs did a poll. they asked the question this election about barack obama, for him or against him, and plurality said it's not about obama at all. it's actually an antiwashington vote, antiincumbent vote. one of the things nobody has been talking about is the governors races. that's how you determine the future of local and state politics. republicans are in danger of losing several major gubernatorial races today. while i'm convinced they will win this senate, i think that florida, for example, could go democrat and that's significant. >> gayle's point was, will the people who are elected and coming to the senate and the house have a mandate based on this election? >> that was my point. >> everyone defines and we all have the right -- >> thank you, charlie. you did not address that, frank luntz. >> we all have a free country to
8:04 am
ignore the point to get to what we actually want to say. >> exactly right. >> and i plan to exercise that right. >> much like the politicians running. >> the problem is that's -- they will say they have a mandate, but do you have a mandate -- let's say you get to 52 seats in the senate. that's only 52. is that really a mandate? i think what the public is saying because a lot of incumbents are going to lose. more democratic incumbents will lose tonight in the senate than at any time since 1994. that's going back 20 years. in the end, it's whether they will make the commitment to work with the president, and in the end that's what the american people want. they want to get things done. there are two attributes in our poll that matter more than anything else. accountability and get things done. they better listen to them. >> interesting, norah and i talked about this. interesting question to me is the dynamic after the election between the president and the congress. >> we'll have a moment -- one of them is going to have to grab it. who makes the olive branch, who
8:05 am
takes the olive branch moment. you could be terribly cynical about this and say you want to be seen as extending the olive branch because you know in the end it's going to be a big fight and you need to kind of look like you weren't always girded for a fight. but there will be an interesting dance if mitch mcconnell becomes a majority leader how he and the president interact the first time. >> the president is about to come out with a series of executive actions that may anger the republican-controlled senate and house for that matter, especially on the issue of immigration? >> he said he would. >> yes. what kind of olive branch is that? >> it's an olive branch to the eye, which is -- >> never good. >> which is not a good way to start the conversation. >> does one side, do you think, need to extend the olive branch more than the other? does one side look worse here, as you say, frank, everybody looks bad? >> 1995-'96, more things got accomplished. bill clinton in office and the republicans in the house and senate than in any two-year
8:06 am
period. they were able to cooperate and get things done. >> they also had a mandate based on the contract with america at that time. >> and i was involved in it. but we mention the house, the other story that's not being told is that republicans are nine seats away, which i think they could get to tonight, nine seats away from having the biggest majority since 1946. >> in the house. >> in the house. this is significant. >> how likely is it we will not know until december or january? >> who controls the senate? >> yes. >> i think -- it's possible. if there's a runoff. >> likely or possible? >> charlie, you're pushing me too hard. i don't know. i don't know. we've got all of these races claterring around. we barely know what day it is. >> we could know around 9:00 or 10:00 depending on new hampshire and north korea, carolina. if it's tight. >> but we've also seen these races have their own particulari particularities. so wave may not, it may break on
8:07 am
the east coast. >> the point here is you could have a runoff in georgia and runoff in louisiana and something happening in alaska. >> when you come tomorrow morning at 7:00 a.m., i believe the republicans win in majority. at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow when you go back on the air i don't think that will have been declared because of those three states you mentioned. >> how likely the pollsters are wrong? hello, eric cantor. >> the republican pulse in 2012 were way off. predicting mitt romney. i will tell you one thing for every viewer to remember, don't trust the pollsters. >> coming from a pollster. >> coming from a pollster. >> okay. >> i've been trying to make that point for a long time. frank luntz, john dickerson, thank you. our campaign 2014 coverage begins tonight on the "cbs evening news." we will have updates during the even and prime time one-hour special. scott and i will bring you news and analysis with anthony mason, and more. that's tonight right here on cbs. >> i'm looking forward to it. aren't you? >> oh, yeah.
8:08 am
>> i love election night. >> this is the way charlie started the show last hour. it is election day. >> can i say, gayle is doing all the exit polls which is fascinating to know why people are voting. >> all right. be there or be square on cbs. coming up, do we tip because we want to or because we have to? we'll show you what happened when a restaurant critic put,,,, this morning's eye opener at 8:00 sponsored by benefiber.
