7:01 am
today's "eye opener." your look at the world in 90 seconds. >> if we don't win, this will be the single greatest waste of time, energy, and money in my life. >> america votes after an unforgettable campaign. >> we face the test of our time. it's not just my name or donald trump's name on the ballot, it's every issue anyone cares about. >> it is november 8th, the day that we make america great again! >> after months of campaigning, after all the rallies, it all comes down to you. this is out of hillary's hands now. it's out of my hands. >> the people of america have stood up and spoken up and had enough. >> we've had enough of donald trump's punching over and over and over again for the last 17 months. we've had it. >> the first task of whoever is elected must be to repair the damage that's been done by this campaign to the good name of our country. >> by this time tomorrow one of these candidates will be
7:02 am
america's next president. >> that's right. finally election day, which means cnn's countdown clock starts all over again. a massive sinkhole on a city street in japan has prompted the evacuation of nearby residents. >> where's sam mu eljackson. a slithering stowaway giving passengers quite a scare on the flight to mexico city. >> all of that. hit number three. >> it is! >> first, votes have already been cast in the tiny town of dixville, notch. >> one resident actually wrote in mitt romney. >> and all that matters. >> in less than 24 hours the election will be over, thank god. this election has really aged all of us. in fact, here's a picture of me when this election started. >> on "cbs this morning." >> "hamilton" star says everyone should hip-hop to the polling place.
7:03 am
♪ what you gonna do ♪ because history has its eyes on you snoimt. >> this morning's eye opener is presented by toyota. let's go places. welcome to "cbs this morning." as you wake up in the west, americans are voting in huge numbers on this election day. more than 130 million of us will decide if donald trump or hillary clinton will be the 46th president of the united states. the democratic nominee and former president bill clinton voted this morning in chappaqua, new york. republican nominee is voting at this hour at a public school in new york city. we will speak this morning with his son, eric trump and be with democratic vice presidential nominee tim kaine. >> turnout will be a huge factor in the outcome. a great deal of attention is focused on 13 battleground states. our correspondents are tracking the votes from arizona to pennsylvania.
7:04 am
nancy cordes and major garrett are with the candidates. john dickerson and bob schieffer are here as we reach the finish line of this oh, so epic journey. we've got all the bases covered. we begin with cbs news elections director, that's anthony savanto at our elections map. anthony, good morning. >> good morning. happy election day, gayle. when we look at these battleground states we've been following, we see in the polling that a lot of them have been leaning towards hillary clinton so far. so we look at this map and we take states like wisconsin, like michigan. those have been leaning towards clinton. then watch the key state of pennsylvania. most of their voters vote today as opposed to having voted early. if she can win there and you start to think about what her map looks like from there, well, you take virginia where she's also been leading in polls and then she's getting close. then watch places like north carolina or a couple of the
7:05 am
states out west like nevada. all she would need to do then is get one of those to go over the 270 and what story that tells you is that she might have an easier path on the electoral map if she can get the turnout that she needs. >> so what about donald trump's path to victory? yesterday his campaign manager kellyanne conway said she saw six different paths for him. >> yeah, he does have different paths but they all involve flipping a lot of states, some of which have been leaning blue so far. let me show you. if he can get ohio, let's say, where he's been up or even in the polls. if he can get florida, he can probably get iowa, then he's still got to hold on to arizona and then go back and try to flip some of these other states. maybe get north carolina and then even then he's got to go and get maybe it's a michigan or a wisconsin to put him over the top. if that sounds like a lot of states, it is possible, but he's got to flip a lot of them, gayle. >> bottom line even if he wins florida, north carolina, ohio,
7:06 am
he's got to flip one of those states like michigan, wisconsin, or pennsylvania. >> thank you, anthony. thank you so much. hillary clinton's last campaign trip didn't end until about 3:30 eastern this morning but dozens of supporters were waiting as her plane arrived north of new york city. clinton and her husband greeted people in the crowd. nancy cordes was also there just a few hours ago. and now she's at douglas grassland elementary school in chappaqua. nancy, i know he haven't slept. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. hillary clinton tried to set a good example for her supporters voting bright and early at this elementary school just a few blocks from her home in chappaqua. afterwards, she said it was a humbling experience to vote for herself. her campaign this morning is not cocky but confident. they believe victory is well within their grasp as long as democrats do their civic duty and go to the polls. >> you know, north carolina,
7:07 am
you've got to vote. >> reporter: clinton capped her 19-month bid with awe raucous midnight rally at nc state. >> if you believe we need to do more to support working families with affordable child care, paid leave and equal pay for women, then you have to vote. >> reporter: earlier a record crowd of more than 33,000 cheered her on in philadelphia where she needs to run up the score today to win the state. >> every person who lives in philadelphia lives within five blocks of your polling place. >> reporter: the clintons and obamas joined forces there. this has become a campaign to protect the president's legacy, too. >> i'm betting that men across this country will have no problem voting for the more qualified candidate, who happens to be a woman. >> reporter: there's been little time to dwell on the had is try she could make tonight. controversy of hers and his has dominated the election and led to some epic clashes. >> i regret deeply how angry the
7:08 am
tone of the campaign became. >> reporter: her campaign amidst battleground florida is close though think they they will win. ohio will be a reach and north carolina could go either way. >> hi, everybody. >> reporter: after she cast her ballot this morning, we asked clinton whether she's nervous. >> i'm so happy. incredibly happy. >> reporter: clinton is keeping a low profile for most of the day. she'll do some radio interviews from her home and then head to mid town manhattan to start watching some of the results come in. she is doing an election night rally at the javits convention center in manhattan in an aid try up which is conveniently symbolically equipped with a glass ceiling. >> it will be a very interesting and long night. thank you very much, nancy. the first votes were counted in new hampshire just after midnight. donald trump campaigned in the granite state late last night with his family and republican
7:09 am
candidate mike pence. major garrett is in manhattan. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump and his advisors believe they are on the cusp of victory but that they will need a surge of election day turnout to push them over the top. and in the frantic final days of this campaign a surprising state has emerged as a center piece in trump's push for 270 electoral votes, michigan, which has 16 of them. hasn't voted republican since 1988. >> there's no place i'd rather be for my last rally, right here in michigan. >> reporter: at a midnight rally in the usually democratic state of michigan, donald trump framed today's election as a middle class rebellion. >> today the american working class is going to strike back finally. >> reporter: basking in the glory of his last campaign rally, trump squeezed in his most popular campaign schtick
7:10 am
one more time. >> i just want to ask you one more question if you don't mind at 1:00 in the morning. who is going to pay for the wall? 100%. >> reporter: new hampshire trump claimed he secured an endorsement from new england patriots quarterback tom brady. >> he called today and he said, donald, i support you. you're my friend. and i voted for you. >> reporter: in florida where early vote totals have trump backers encouraged, the candidate lightened the mood by reaching into the crowd for a flimsy likeness of himself. >> nice head of hair, i'll say that. the move served as a symbol for trump's closing argument and that he can unmask the washington system his supporters have come to loathe. >> it's time to reject the media and political elite that bled our country dry.
7:11 am
>> reporter: florida, north carolina and ohio formed the foundation of any successful trump strategy to win the presidency. other states the campaign will look at tonight, pennsylvania, new hampshire, colorado to name just three. trump is here to vote any minute at ps 59 in mid town manhattan. then after that, like the rest of the nation, he will watch and wait. >> thanks, major. donald trump's son eric will be with us in a few minutes, but democratic vice presidential nominee virginia senator tim kaine voted earlier this morning in richmond, virginia. that's where he joins us from now. senator, good morning. >> good morning, guys. great to be with you. >> so you have voted again. you have never lost an election. what concerns you? is it turnout? >> i think that's what we're trying to do today, to just encourage people to get out there. there was a great line already at my polling place when it opened at 6:00 and certainly we saw super enthusiasm in early vote and absentee voting but,
7:12 am
yeah, that's the issue for today. everybody should participate. we think this is going to be a history-making election, and you'll want to say you were there. >> the polls close in your home state of virginia at 7:00 tonight. one of the earlier states. so it may give us an indication of how the night is going. what will you be looking for? >> we're just, you know, encouraging everybody to get out there and vote. virginia polls do close at 7:00, so it's in the first wave of states whose polls close. that can give us an idea of how the night is going to go. >> a lot of attention is being paid to the hispanic vote. there's been a huge increase in florida and nevada for the hispanic voters. what does that say to you, senator? >> there are two things going on with the latino vote. first, they perceive a huge difference between the two tickets. hillary clinton and i support comprehensive immigration reform, donald trump supports building a wall and deporting people. they perceive a difference. the other thing that's really important, i think this is the election where the latino
7:13 am
community understand that they make a big difference. they don't view themselves as a minor part of the electorate anymore. in their states, north carolina, nevada, colorado, all over the country they see that they can be a difference maker. that is an empowering thing. >> senator, a lot of these people looked at this capping pain and said it is very nasty. whoever wins, they are hoping the country can come together. a soon as you and hillary clinton are in power after today, how will you close the divisions in this country and the extraordinary partisan feelings that it erupted? >> charlie, that's a challenge after every race and maybe sharper in this one than any race maybe in the last 40 years. hillary's got a great track record. when she worked in the senate she had really good relations on both sides of the aisle and members of the senate that i talked to, republicans who worked with her feel that they're going to be able to again. and i have that same track record as governor i had two republican houses and i've got good people in the senate now.
7:14 am
the burden is going to be on our shoulders if we're successful. >> senator kaine, thank you for joining us. >> you bet. john dickerson is here. good morning. >> good morning, norah. >> the votes are being counted already. people are at their polling places. but we have some early clues perhaps about tonight -- how tonight may go or how the campaigns go. analyze where their final stops were. hillary clinton in philadelphia and north carolina. the trump family in michigan and new hampshire. >> it's like christmas and birthday all rolled into one today. so the trump campaign is making a last-minute attempt to break through that democratic wall with michigan. if they can do that, that takes a little bit of pressure off the traditional battleground states that we've been talking about. the question is when you talk to republicans, in the states like michigan, republicans can get close but because you're playing on the other person's turf, their strong turf, the turnout can be goosed by democrats. that's why you saw two presidents there and the nominee. hillary clinton in, you know,
7:15 am
pennsylvania, it's all about philadelphia. can she jack up the votes in philadelphia and then in north carolina is the state that went for romney in '12. >> tim kaine said he thinks if they win in florida or north carolina they have blocked his pathway. >> right. now that -- that pre-supposes that hillary clinton wins in north carolina and she wins in michigan. that's going to be the question. if she gets one of those two big ones, it's very positive the campaign feels pretty good about florida but then they just have to watch their sort of back door in pennsylvania, which actually looks like it may be better for clinton than it would have maybe previously. so they've got to watch their back door in michigan. >> donald trump said if he doesn't win it would be, quote, the single greatest waste of time, energy, and money in my life. >> well, i guess that's relative to the other things he's done in his life. think about what he has built and what he has energized and what he has done.
7:16 am
it's taking control of a party from the people who thought they knew what their party was about to remake it in his image. that's an amazing political thing regardless if he wins. >> john dickerson, are you sensing election fatigue? >> oh, my gosh. like everybody is waiting outside of an operating room to see how the thing -- >> what are the results? thank you, john dickerson. >> did the patient survive? >> the patient will survive. thank you. federal officials are still looking for people who may have potential information for a terror threat linked to the election. they're deploying the largest security detail ever. officials are also worried about online threats. we have the government's secret cyber command center. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. preparations by federal law enforcement for election day really kicked up over the summer when it was revealed that the russian sz had hacked e-mails of democratic party officials and
7:17 am
hackers have reached voter databases in two states. today the department of homeland security is trying to guard against cyber attacks. in this room on these big screens experts from several federal agencies are watching out for potential cyber attacks in states across the country. this is a secret department of homeland security cyber command center. it operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. any sort of cyber-related disturbance is flagged instantaneously. a month ago u.s. officials publicly accused russia of trying to interfere with the u.s. election process. with a combination of cyber attacks that led to the disclosure of embarrassing e-mail and russian operatives are also suspected of scanning and probing systems across at least 26 states. >> is there any doubt in your mind that he's trying to
7:18 am
influence the election. >> no, he isn't. >> he blames vladimir putin. >> he's trying to affect the american political process. he's trying to erode it. he's happy enough to do what i said, just to be messing with our heads. >> reporter: in recent weeks russian officials have called the accusation nonsense and because voting machines are not connected to the internet, u.s. officials say a cyber attack could not affect the vote total on election night but they say they are very concerned about attempts to cause confusion. >> dhs will be paying especially close attention to secretary of state websites on election night and other popular websites used to get election information. dhs officials say they have been in conversations with all foo states about cyber responsibility and incident response teams are gearing up. >> thank you. our full coverage of election night begins at 3:30 pacific time.
7:19 am
charlie, norah will join you. what do the russians think about the possible motive? elizabet,,,, >> announcer: this national weather report sponsored by walgreens. at the corner of happy and healthy.

7:35 am
florida? >> i really do. everywhere i go, norah, thousands of people show up. the excitement, the rallies, 20,000, 25,000 people in an arena. they've waited for six hours outside. the enthusiasm is incredible. i talked to all of the swing states thousands and thousands everywhere i go. i don't see a single hillary sign. people are sick and tired of washington, d.c. people want to drain the swamp. people want to get rid of the career politicians. you see obama care and the disaster. these are the policies that have come up by our elected officials. they've done a horrible job. people want to see something new. >> there is evidence we're going to have record turnout. the most we've ever seen, both candidates are driving a lot of that turnout. anthony salvanto, i know you were talking to our elections director was talking about the electoral map. even if your father wins florida, he would also need to win ohio, michigan, pennsylvania, plus all of the states he is likely to win. do you look at that map and say,
7:36 am
that's tough, that's why we've got to get to michigan and wisconsin. how large do you look at the map? >> i look at it every day. there are groups which traditionally does not go red, nevada. and colorado, we're up right now, traditionally a blue state. this isn't about red and blue. my father started a movement. it's a common sense movement. we want jobs, we want safety. we want security. we want affordable health care. we want lower taxes. we want to stop jobs from leaving our borders and our nation. we want to get rid of isis. by the way, we want to all do this affordably. over the last 7 1/2 years, our president has racked under our national deficit by $11 trillion. people are sick and tired of the nonsense and fraud and abuse. they want somebody from the private sector. >> having said that, your father said yesterday, if i don't win, this will be, quote, the sing. greatest waste of time of money

8:01 am
>> soassume you and hillary clinton are in power, how will you close the divisions in this country? >> that's a challenge after every race and maybe sharper in this one. >> the outcome of this election, do you see donald trump and hillary clinton could work together after november 8th? >> i would hope so. i really would. >> john dickerson, are you sensing election fatigue? >> oh, my gosh, amazing election fatigue. everyone is waiting outside a operating room to see how -- >> what are the results? >> i urge you, no matter what your choice is, doesn't matter what you think, go out and vote, no excuses. >> now is your turn. you have a big responsibility. >> whoever wins, i want us all to promise one thing, let's never do this again. i mean, we tried democracy. i think we proved we're not mature enough to handle it. we can't do it. let's go back to only caring about tv shows. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell.
8:02 am
the campaign is over. and election day is here. hillary clinton voted this morning in chappaqua, new york, with her husband, the former president. clinton's team told us earlier she wanted to get out early to set an example for people to get out and vote, no matter who your choice is. donald trump voted a short time ago in new york city. he cast his ballot at a public school on manhattan's east side. >> more than 46 million people have already exercised their right to vote, that at one time was not guaranteed. it has been 146 years since all american men regardless of race were granted the constitutional right to vote. 96 years ago, american women were given the right. donald trump and hillary clinton have tried to convince the country that they each have the right vision for its future. both candidates held their final rallies at midnight. >> so it is now officially tuesday, november 8th. >> well, i got to tell you, this is sure worth staying up for.
8:03 am
>> hours away from a once in a lifetime change. we're going to have real change. >> it is a choice that really goes to the heart of who we are as americans. >> we will make america great again. >> vote for a hopeful, inclusive, big hearted america. >> today, the voters will speak. hillary clinton and donald trump will both hold election night parties in new york city, less than two miles apart from each other. >> hillary clinton and donald trump made their final pitch to voters in five states yesterday. we have correspondents in three battleground states this morning. north carolina, pennsylvania and ohio. they have a total of 53 electoral votes. jan crawford is in raleigh, north carolina, where clinton held her midnight rally. trump was there earlier in the day. jan, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. so clinton and trump had visited this state a combined 21 times since their conventions over the
8:04 am
summer and now the latest cbs news battleground tracker poll has clinton with a slim three-point lead over trump, 48-45. the winner will get all of north carolina's 15 electoral votes. we're here at a polling place in raleigh, and people gathered at the crack of dawn to cast their ballots, here, more than 3 million people already have voted through early voting. that is a 12% increase since 2012 when mitt romney carried this state. and, you know, as for those numbers, both sides say the early voting figures give them the advantage. but at this point, charlie, it is just impossible to tell who has the edge. charlie? >> thanks, jan. jericka duncan is at a polling place in philadelphia. donald trump has talked several times about potential voter fraud in that city. a task force dedicated to preventing voter fraud and intimidation received additional workers. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we're here in the mount airy section of philadelphia. i can tell you people were lined
8:05 am
up before the polls even opened. they're inside here voting, a lot of people expected to turn out here where there are about 4,000 registered voters. now, we did get a chance to talk to the district attorney, seth williams, yesterday. he told us they have a voter fraud task force made up of about 100 assistant district attorneys and investigators. here is how it works. if someone calls into the office, they will send someone from that task force to investigate that particular polling place. the district attorney says he does not expect the electoral process to be compromised. meanwhile, one of the largest black churches here in philadelphia galvanized about 400 men who will be spread out throughout the city, they say they call themselves voter advocates and their job will be to make sure everything runs smoothly and there are no abnormalities. gayle? >> thank you, jericka. the department of justice will have more than 500 people across 28 states to monitor the polls today. dean reynolds is in columbus, ohio, where the secretary of state says the election system is safer and more secure than it
8:06 am
has ever been. dean, good morning. that's good to hear. >> reporter: good morning. well, columbus is in franklin county, ohio, one of three places in the state where those department of justice monitors will be watching what goes on here today. almost 1.8 million people have already voted early in ohio. and election officials say that's nearly 11,000 more than four years ago. now, ohio has picked the winner in all but two presidential elections since 1904. if donald trump somehow wins the presidency without ohio, he would be the first republican to do that ever. and if hillary clinton wins without ohio, she would be the first democrat to do so since john f. kennedy in 1960. now, election officials here say they are not worried about somebody trying to hack their system. they point out that the ballots here are paper ballots, mostly.
8:07 am
and they say that the voting machines are not connected to the internet. charlie? >> thank you, dean. cbs news introduced a computer in 1952 for the first time to cover an election. >> this is not a joke or a trick. it is an experiment. we think it is going to work. >> the computer correctly predicted dwight eisenhower would defeat adlai stevenson. today, modern computers will crunch the data. anthony salvanto is back to explain how we make projections. good morning again. >> good morning, charlie. >> how do we make projections? >> you know, we have better computers now. >> thank you. >> i like the one, i think it is going to work, right? but, you know, it still starts with shoe leather, i always say, which is to say we are sending people out to precincts all over the country, all over these battleground states. and they interview voters as
8:08 am
they're leaving. voters tell us what they did. that's the core of the exit poll that the networks do. and then we get the precinct counts from the elections officials themselves, and those come back in here, and then we get another count and that's the counties, because votes are counted at the county level, and that comes in here and then we analyze all that and look for patterns. >> we do not use exit polling solely to make projections, right? we wait until the polls are closed in that state. why is that so important? >> well, because we want to give everybody in the state a chance to vote. and we do that in order to protect their right to vote, and we don't want to talk about and characterize race before they all had that chance. >> the idea that polls are open, they may not go to vote if they think it is already over. >> some people say that. >> so really interesting some of the first poll closings we'll see, georgia and virginia at 7:00. but yet we might not make a projection until the 9:00 hour if 2012 and 2008 serve as any
8:09 am
guide. >> exactly. because we often have to wait for a lot of the votes to be counted before we know who is going to win. >> really interesting. what time do you think you'll have an idea of how the night may be going? >> we'll start to see the early poll closings and get trends out of those. but i suspect this one will be late and exciting. >> thank you, anthony. >> the presidential election is just one race that we are tracking. there are also competitive senate and house races down the ballot. julianna golden is here with a breakdown of what is at stake for congress. good morning. >> good morning. after the presidential race, the big story out of tonight is going to be who controls the senate. now, currently the republicans have an eight seat advantage and for democrats to flip it, they need to pick up five seats. if the democrats gain four seats giving each party 50, then the vice president has the tie breaking vote. so the battle for the senate is being fought out in eight very tight races. we're going to be calling them the great eight. in florida, you got senator
