5:06 am
we'll go into our battleground and see that hillary clinton has a 274-180 lead over donald trump. donald trump has to be able to get to 270. so how does he be able to do that? first he's got to win all the unsigned, all the toss-up states. you give him fle -- you give him florida, north carolina, ohio, put utah and arizona in his column, throw in new hampshire, what happens, that only puts him votes. so he needs to win something else. and one way, place he can do that is in the midwest. he could try to flip a michigan, say. that puts him above 270 electoral votes. or if he could -- you could give him pennsylvania, that puts him at 283. so he has to be able to tap into hillary clinton's midwest, blue firewall that's going on. for hillary clinton, her goal is to be able just to be able to --
5:07 am
she wins a north carolina, she's well above 300 electoral votes. that would be a decisive win for her. but say she isn't able to win florida, say she isn't able to win north carolina, she is able to hold on to pennsylvania, what becomes so key is either winning one of new hampshire or one of nevada. the nevada early vote looks very good for hillary clinton so far. that really is the game. and it does show you how many more paths to votes hillary clinton has that donald trump -- donald trump has to do something to shake up the race. that's why he's traveling everywhere across the country to be able to do that. >> thanks, mark murray. to joy reed and sarah isgar flores, former spokeswoman for carly fiorina. good morning. >> good morning. >> three days to go. can you believe it? >> we were commiserating about
5:08 am
we'll see. both campaigns have new ads. let's talk about it on the other side. take a look. ? the eye of the tiger the fire dancing through the fire ? ? cause i am a champion ? >> the only people brave enough to vote out this corrupt establishment is you, the american people. >> so there you go. let's talk about the message of both of them, that they're driving home in these final joy? >> first of all, the difference in the ads. you know, hillary clinton has the pop culture, the weight of pop culture on her side. when queen bey, when beyonce is out there for you and jay-z, the culture is with you. and you just hear -- you heard katy perry. i think the message from hillary clinton now is to have her base get excited, if you're a young woman, get excited about there being a first woman president. her message right now is uplift, pumping up the base. >> donald? >> donald trump's message essentially is the only way we
5:09 am
he's still trying to run on rage and run on paranoia. >> donald also got a new messenger -- melania trump was on the trail this week. this is the first time we've seen her give a speech since the convention. the goal, to aconnect with the suburban women voters. did she achieve that goal? >> most of in is baked. we've seen the early numbers coming out about the way we expected. the problem they have is we're seeing what the polls would have women have had a 31-point swing since 2012. they supported mitt romney in 2012. this time they are swinging heavily to hillary clinton. if he can't stem that tide between that and the hispanic vote, women and hispanics are why he's going to lose the race. the early numbers are otherwise in his favor, frankly, far more than we would have expected based on her vaunted ground game. it is not turning out how she thought. without women and hispanics, since the swing in 2012, i don't
5:10 am
like nevada and florida become must wins. >> i want to see on melania, joy, one of melania's main messages that she would want to address if trump is elected is cyber-bullying. many say her husband could be coined the commander in chief of the twitter beatdowns. >> yes. ending -- >> i would say so. >> absolutely. ending cyberbully starts at home. and i think sarah makes a good point. this is woman reporter and had the crowd turn on her. it's ironic they would put her out that way. i don't understand why they did it and why were they in philadelphia when they're going to lose? i don't get it. >> hillary clinton's been going to michigan, a state she should
5:11 am
if they're worried about michigan, that should make everyone a little bit worried on the democratic team. >> trump talks about the clinton team being investigated -- >> they're scare tactics. >> republicans are saying it. i think one of the things that's dangerous for democracy, honestly, whatever side you fall on, is thi criminalizing politics. republicans have been clear that they plan that paralyze a clinton administration with investigations. now have a politicized fbi. this is not something to cheer because a politicized law enforcement apparatus in d.c. could be turned on anyone. republicans televising they're not accepting the results of the election and to work with the new president, they plan to paralyze her with investigations
5:12 am
months of her administration. it's outrageous. >> on the flip side, we know that the emails on anthony weiner's laptop aren't all duplicates. we know that qatar gave a million dollars to the foundation she never disclosed. this is all hillary's problem. she's the one who chose not to disclose all these things, wanted to be evasive. and -- >> so wouldn't it, qatar, the country in the middle east, gave a million dollars to the clinton foundation which was to the state department which she said she would do. >> that's right. this fills her narrative -- >> the fact that we're doing this three days -- >> three days. >> don't wait another day -- >> don't wasn't indicate. you can continue this in your living rooms like everybody else. >> watch "a.m. joy" this morning on msnbc starting at 10:00 a.m. eastern. and nbc news is the place to be on election night.
5:13 am
eastern on tuesday. now to a horrifying case in south carolina where police discovered a body in the same area where authorities say a missing woman was held captive for months. nbc's gabe gutierrez has more from south carolina. >> reporter: good morning. this is the fence the in property where deputies say it happened. the sheriff investigating when this could be the work of a serial killer. the suspect so far is kidnapping, but prosecutors say more charges are likely. this morning, the search resumes for more potential victims on a sprawling compound in south carolina after another chilling discovery. >> we did find a body in a shallow grave on this piece of property. >> reporter: it came after sheriff's deputies first found kayla brown alive. she'd been missing since august along with her boyfriend,
5:14 am
chained by her neck and ankle in a padlocked metal storage container. a representative for her family said they were asking for privacy. >> this is orific and unimage -- horrific and unimaginable. >> reporter: the owner of the property has been charged with kidnapping. he's a realtor and registered sex offender. prosecutors expect more charges after brown told investigators this -- >> she witnessed the defendant shoot st. charles david >> reporter: brown believes there are at least four bodies buried on the property. so far, the one found friday has not been identified. >> it's too unreal for your brain to comprehend. >> reporter: mckenzie durham has known carver since they were teenagers. >> something out of a horror film. not something you expect to hear about in real life. >> reporter: a neighbor says he kept to himself and installed this fence and would spend several hours dale oh the
5:15 am

5:16 am
excruciating pain. a couple of times. >> reporter: scott was shot and killed by then-north charleston police officer michael slager in april of 2015 after scott ran during a traffic stop. a jury of 11 white men and women and one black man is tasked with deciding if slager is guilty of murder or if he acted in self-defense. >> when walter scott ran and resisted, he should have been prosecuted for it. he shouldn't have been killed for it. >> he didn't he physically and forcefully resisted to the extent that they were both fighting on the ground. >> reporter: the jury saw cell phone video showing slager drawing his gun as scott runs away from him. slager then fires eight shots, five of them hitting scott. moments later, slager picks up
5:17 am
drop it next to scott's body. the video was filmed by fayton santana. >> didn't want to be involved. at the same time, my morals and values didn't allow me to do that. because it was an injustice, what i saw. >> reporter: scott's death was one in a sears of violent confrontations between law enforcement and african-american citizens, fueling protests against perceived police bias across the country. scott's family continues to ask pray that justice will do their job. at the end hopefully we will get justice. >> reporter: slager faces 30 years in life if convicted. nbc news. now to a dramatic ruling in the case against "rolling stone" magazine. a judge fining "rolling stone," its publisher, and a reporter liable for defamation relating to a 2014 article alleging a

5:19 am
>> reporter: "rolling stone" retracted the story in april, 2015, after news organizations and police found no evidence to back up the accusations. despite the article's many flaws, the conversation continues today with a national campaign to stop sexual assault on campus. >> it's on us, all of us. >> to stop sexual assault. >> reporter:" rolling stone" wrote "we deeply regret the missteps and sincerely apologize to anyone hurt by them, inclg aramo seeks $7.5 million in financial damages that are still to be determined. for "today," anne thompson, nbc news, new york. a major blow to new jersey governor chris christie. one of donald trump's most important surrogates. two former top aides to the governor were convicted of conspiracy and fraud friday in the so-called bridgegate scandal. the charges stem from a scheme to cause massive traffic jams, allegedly for political

6:41 am
>> so you will soon learn that parenting is not one size fits all. some families feel comforted by taking a lot of classes. the one class which is important is a cpr class. any care giver should be trained in baby cpr. if you have an emergency at home, that is when you need to know what to do before help arrives. my sage advice is to just relax and have fun and enjoy the experience. having been doing it for 14 years and the more you live in the moment and try not to worry and trust, the more wonderful the experience will be for you. >> so good to hear you say that. >> and those questions don't come close to all of the questions i had for dr. levine.
