7:03 am
>> reporter: george, good morning to you. 576 days on the campaign trail. more than 280 campaign events. 37 states visited. and now this historic day is finally here. hillary clinton calls this the test of a lifetime. this morning, hillary clinton casting her ballot back home in chappaqua, new york. while overnight, she closed dance. ? this is my fight song ? >> reporter: marking a historic moment at a historic place. [ chanting "hillary" ] >> reporter: on the same stage at philadelphia's independence mall, the obamas, the clintons, and 33,000 people, the largest crowd of this entire campaign, all there for a symbolic passing of the torch. the president even paving the way by helping hillary clinton to the podium.
7:04 am
not -- it's gotta be permanently there for you. >> we face the test of our time, what will we vote for? not just against. >> reporter: the nation's first african-american president hoping his successor breaks barriers, too. >> and i'm asking you to work as hard as you can this one last day to elect, my fellow americans, this fighter, this stateswoman, this mother, this grandmother, this patriot, our next president of the united states of america. hillary clinton. >> reporter: and the first lady making one final pitch. >> we deserve a leader who sees our diversity not as a threat but as a blessing. >> reporter: clinton calling on
7:05 am
? tonight girl we'll be free all the promises will be broken ? >> reporter: to bon jovi. ? here comes the sun ? ? here comes the sun ? >> reporter: and the final day of campaigning didn't end there. a midnight rally in north carolina with lady gaga. ? >> reporter: so much of america waking up this morning, like they're glad that election day is finally here. i can tell you the campaign feels the exact same way. now that she's voted here, hillary clinton will be out of the spotlight for most of the day, of course, until the big party tonight. she's hoping it's a victory party. she's working on two speeches for both possible outcomes. george? >> thank you. donald trump jr. will join us in a moment.
7:06 am
joining us live from richmond, virginia. good morning, senator. did you get any sleep last night? >> robin, i got about three hours of sleep but i feel about as good as you can feel with three hours of sleep. >> you've already cast your vote? >> i have, indeed. we opened the polls at 6:00 a.m. in virginia. i got there at quarter till and by the time i had voted, there was already quite a long line in my neighborhood. i was excited to see that. >> we're seeing already long lines all across the country as the polls are opening. senator, what have you seen so far be it the early voting and such, these last few days out on the campaign trail, that have given you confidence or possibly concern, what have you seen? >> well, there are three things, robin, that are really important that real data, you see who is registering to vote. and then you see who is asking for absentee ballots and returning them. but then you also see the early vote participation in the states that allow it. and what we're seeing in terms of early participation is very,
7:07 am
democracy always works better the more people participate and i think the energy and enthusiasm about what we believe will be a historymaking race, that's the thing that gives me the most, you know, the most feeling of optimism right now. >> there is a lot of enthusiasm, a number of states are still in play. what has you your eye on, gives you the greatest concern? >> well, yeah, there's a couple of states that i call checkmate states so probably 10 or 15 that are battleground states, but the ones we watch really close are checkmate states. those are states where if we win, we know hillary will be president. and i say this about north carolina, pennsylvania, florida, ohio. these are four checkmates. i think if we win any of those four, hillary will be president. and i think we have a chance to maybe win all of them. but there are some of them will be really close. so we're watching those states
7:08 am
also look, i'm selfish. virginia wasn't competitive at all when i got into politics in 1994 until president obama won it in 2008, it was assumed to be safe republican territory. our polls close at 7:00 p.m. this evening. so we'll probably know how virginia is going pretty early tonight. and that will tell us something, too. >> as voters head to the polls there in your home state of virginia and all across the country, people who will be voting in favor of you, those who will not, what do you say to those people, the american their voices be heard today after such a challenging election season? >> i just encourage them, robin. i lived in honduras 35 years ago. it was a military dictatorship and nobody could vote. they prayed for the day that they could elect their leaders, things like peaceful transfer of power and respecting election results were what they looked at us as setting the example for.
7:09 am
the opportunity to participate in a vigorous way. we just passed more than 200 million americans registered to vote in this country. and i just hope we see record turnout for what i believe is going to be a historymaking election. >> and peaceful one at that. all right, senator tim kaine, thank you very much. i know it's a long day for you. thank you, sir. >> thanks, robin. we move on to donald trump wrapping up his campaign with a midnight rally in michigan. he is back in new york city this morning to vote. says he's going to win with the help of tom brady and bill belichick of the new england patriots. our tom llamas has been with him from the very start. tussled with him at times. here's here in midtown manhattan. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. we're outside because we're expecting tonld trump any moment to vote. the secret service is making sure this is a safe area. donald trump will vote for himself for the first time.
7:10 am
ivanka couldn't vote for her father because she wasn't registered for the republican primary. with such a tight vote, donald trump will need every vote he can get. on the eve of election day, donald trump already declaring victory. >> i think we're going to blow them out tomorrow in a lot of different way, blow them out. no way. this is not the sound of a second place finisher, that i can tell you. >> reporter: trump's marathon campaign taking battleground states in one day, finishing past midnight in grand rapids, michigan. >> we're hours away from a once-in-a-lifetime change. we're going to have real change. >> reporter: but before that, a laser light show in new hampshire and a surprise, trump announcing two of the most popular people in new england are supporting him. patriots coach bill belichick and quarterback tom brady.
7:11 am
for me, you support me. am i allowed to say it tonight to this massive crowd in new hampshire? he said, if you want to say it, you can say it, okay. tom. that's what a champ is all about. >> reporter: in sarasota, the republican nominee pausing as his crowd erupted in chants of "president trump." [ chanting "president trump" ] >> reporter: for trump reaching the height of presidential politics anything but humbling. and making sure everyone remembers. >> they say it's the single greatest movement politically speaking in the history of this country. can you believe that? can you believe it? that's quite an honor. >> reporter: when asked by "the wall street journal" if it was all worth it, trump saying it took massive amounts of work, incredible amounts of intrusion into my life, unbelievably unfair hits to my family. but the answer is very proudly yes.
7:12 am
work is done. now it's up to them. >> well, you know what you can do, go out and vote tomorrow. that's what you can do, i'll tell you. that's the only way. that's where you beat the rigging, folks. >> reporter: now donald trump says if he wins tonight he'll celebrate for an hour and then immediately start working tomorrow. if he loses, he says this will time, money, and energy, george? >> okay, tom, thank very much. let's talk to his son, donald trump jr. one of his dad's closest advisers. thanks for coming back in. i remember the morning of the iowa caucuses, the first votes. we sat down and talked. ten months later you're here on election day. how would you sum up that experience? >> honestly, it's been incredible, george. to go around the country and see all these people, so many who have been disaffected by the political system and that's really a bipartisan problem,
7:13 am
politicians time and time again. and to be able to see them face to face. not just on tv every once in awhile. but have them come up to you with that emotion, it's been awesome. it's moving. >> robin asked tim kaine where he sees hope. the polls show you behind right now. what are you looking for for hope? >> so i want everyone to turn out, people who have been let down, i want them to turn out and vote and bring their friends and we'll see what happens. i mean i have seen that from so many people that come up to us and they're screaming, we love you, keep doing what you're doing. and i've had come up and say, we love you. keep doing what you're doing. they've been put in a box oftentimes by the media. by a false narrative created out there. you know, they can't be as vocal about supporting trump and it's going to be interesting to see how that turns out. >> you saw your father last night at some of those rallies say if he loses this whole thing has been a waste of time. is that what you think? >> you know, i don't know about that. i mean, i think -- i would love to see politicians wake up and start supporting their constituency.
7:14 am
what i've seen, government of the elite by the elite and for the elite. and seen it whether it be all of the corruption out there, all of the nonsense that we've been reading about over -- i don't think that's what the american want. the american people want to be represented. they want to have a voice again. they haven't had it in a long time. so hopefully, we can be the start of that movement to give those people back their voice. >> this is a bitter campaign. if your dad wins, how does he bring this country together? >> i think he has to start by doing what he's been doing. i was in detroit yesterday. my father has gone into the inner cities and gone to places where traditional republican candidates wouldn't go, wouldn't campaign because he knows he has to be president for all of america. and so he's going to go into those places and make sure he follows through on all of his promises. >> if he loses will he work to bring the country together? >> i imagine he will. i think, you know, again, we've all grown a lot during this process. we've all learned a lot. easy to be glib when you're in new york city and you work for a successful business and family. but he's seen those people and been watching them for 18 months. their american dream has been exported to foreign countries and someone else is living that
7:15 am
we want to bring that back. and do that as best we can regardless of the outcome. >> thanks for coming in this morning. >> that morning in iowa seems like a long time ago. doesn't it? >> i always say the last 18 months has been the longest ten years of my life. thank you. as voting gets under way our latest tracking poll shows hillary clinton holding steady with a four-point lead over donald trump. abc's jonathan karl joins us with a closer look at where it stands right now. millions heading out to the polls today. 45 million have already cast their vote. where do things stand right now? >> the early vote has been huge. robin, we don't know how any of these people have voted but we actually know quite a bit about who is voting. take the biggest swing state of them all, the state of florida, if you look at this you've had democrats with a slight edge over republicans. a little bit over a percent. but look at the huge independent vote. almost 20% of the vote has been independent. in the state of north carolina, you have democrats with an even
7:16 am
the early vote and a considerable independent vote. here's the thing, though, although democrats in both those states have a big advantage, it's actually less of an advantage than they had four years ago when barack obama barely won florida and lost the state of north carolina. so we don't know, again, how that vote is going to play out. >> you heard tim kaine talk about those checkmate states for hillary clinton. so what is donald trump's most plausible path now that our poll is showing him behind. >> it's a tough path. first of all, if you look at the abc rate ratings he has to go through and win every single one of the states that we have as toss-up states. even if he does that, george, take a look what happens to the electoral count. if he wins every single one of our toss-up states he is still short of the 270 he needs. so he needs to win one of these big blue states like michigan, or pennsylvania, and again,
7:17 am
election started. >> going back to the convention. jon karl, thanks very much. >> all right. this is going to be your home away from home today. michael will be -- tonight too. tonight michael is going to be outside. and that's where he is right now with a look at what we can expect. michael? >> i'm going to be here. i'm going to have a coat on tonight. i can tell you that. abc news, we are taking over times square for election 2016. we've got this giant interactive map that's going to change colors throughout the night when abc news projects a state for clinton or trump that state is going to turn red or it's going to turn blue. now we've teamed up with facebook to create this booth in times square that's right behind me. we'll talk with some of the voters from around the country in person. we're also going to talk to them on social media about some of this things that are most important to them. and meanwhile, while this is happening here, the candidates, they've been having a little fun on social media lately. hillary clinton and her team taking on the mannequin challenge. there we go. it's going viral. bill, huma, hillary and look at that, who is that in the back?
7:18 am
plane. had a good time with that. and also trump's kids have been having a little fun. ivanka and tiffany taking a snapchat puppy filter selfie. and there's a lot of people out there using snapchat election day filters. get out and cast your important vote. celebs like john legend and chrissy teigen getting in on the action, as well and now we're callin action. write to us on our on the other hand meeting using #election2016. get out and vote and i'll bring in ginger zee. i found you out here standing on the country. do you think the weather will influence any voting out there?. 1960. 2000. this year the trouble spots, michigan and ohio. i want to show you the map, though. we've got a lot of maps coming up and a lot of screens to showcase on this tuesday. look at that. dry and mild for most of the nation, michael. wet in the middle. showers that could be at least an influence or in michigan and ohio.
7:19 am
7:20 am
and coming up, we have much more on the election. our powerhouse political team is here with much more on what to expect. and brian ross. are your ballots safe? could hacking factor into the election? we'll be right back. ? if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast).

7:30 am
health. it is election day. back here at "gma," and that is jon bon jovi and lady gaga singing "livin' on a prayer," taking the stage last night at a star-studded rally for hillary clinton. and donald trump also holding his own big rallies, five battleground states in one day. and saying he's going to win with support from patriots stars tom brady and bill belichick. >> got the patriots in his corner. so he says this morning. also, millions heading to the polls this morning. let's look live at people voting across the country right now. there's the battleground state of ohio, columbus, the capital and also people voting right here in new york city. >> look at those lines. yeah. >> yep, and it's not just the white house on the ballot. millions are heading to the polls to vote on some major hot button issues. and amy, you have all of that coming up. >> that's right. states are voting on everything from marijuana to the death
7:31 am
it is a big day on a lot of issues coming up. robin? >> got to keep that in mind. amy, thank you. a lot of excitement here in new york and in those battleground states that could determine the election. the candidates have been spending a lot of time in florida. it's considered a must-win for trump, but not a guarantee. paula faris is in miami shores. paula, what are you seeing so far? good morning. >> reporter: well, what i'm seeing, i'm not seeing a line robin because over half the state already voted. but it is all about florida. e donald trump has spent more time and more money in this state than anywhere else. he calls it his second home. but it's almost impossible for him to win the presidency if he doesn't pick up this state. whereas secretary clinton who has also spent the most amount of money here in florida can still afford to lose florida and go on to win the presidency. one key demographic we are keeping a close eye on is the hispanic early vote, in 2012
7:32 am
community. fast forward to this election cycle, almost double. a massive surge. we're talking 980,000. and keep this in mind, 36% of those that voted early from the hispanic community in 2016, you guys, didn't even vote four years ago. this is a base that is extremely motivated. a base that is expected to skew heavily for secretary clinton and a base that could not only determine what happens in the sunshine state but ultimately decide the election. robin, back to you. >> paula, thank you. >> you know the sunshine state is important. but north carolina is major battleground state. and hillary clinton spent her final night of the campaign there. and abc's linzie davis is in raleigh. a big law could help drive voter turnout. >> reporter: you're exactly right, good morning to you, michael. lots of enthusiasm here. the line to vote is actually out of the door. that's because there's so much at stake here in the tar heel state. for starters you have that transgender bathroom law. such a polarizing issue. and the thought is that's going to drive a lot of people to the polls.
7:33 am
north carolina, you have clinton and trump tied neck and neck. in 2012, north carolina voted for mitt romney. in 2008, they voted for president obama. and prior to that, north carolina had not voted for a democrat for president since 1976, when we were talking about jimmy carter. but in 2008 a big help for president obama was the extremely large black voter turnout. the school of thought is that hillary clinton will need a repeat of the same in order to win the state tonight, guys. >> okay, linsey, thanks. our whole political team here th i'm joined by martha raddatz, matthew dowd, cokie roberts and along with republican strategist alex castellanos and stephanie rawlings-blake, the democratic mayor of baltimore. thank you all for being here. matt, let me begin with you. sunday, you said hillary clinton has a 95% chance of winning. you sticking with that? >> maybe 96% this morning. i think one of the mysteries we don't know, which could obviously affect the election today is, what's the composition
7:34 am
it looks more like 2014. the clinton camp counting on it to look more like a presidential election year. like 2012 or 2008. i think donald trump's only chance would be like the new york giants, coming across town, going to madison square garden and beating the new york rangers on their ice. >> anything's possible. >> you accepted the challenge. well done. >> yes, i did. >> cokie. cokedy, you and many others feel it's going to be a much tighter race. >> that's because the country is so divided. and it's really hard to see how you get big swings one way or another. but i do think that matt is right. it will be like 2012 except on steroids. because we are seeing this big hispanic turnout, which is very interesting. i think the african-american turnout is going to get up. but we have a group of swing voters, people who have not voted democratic before and those are college-educated white women. and if they vote for hillary clinton today and up to today the way they have been showing
7:35 am
>> and now alex, on george's show on sunday, you predicted a trump victory. but you agree it's going to be hard for him to win the latino vote. >> i think it's going to be very hard. matt is here to provide rational analysis. i'm here to balance that. >> and sports analogy. >> and sports analogy. >> as recently as 2006, more hispanics in florida were registered as republicans than democrats. boy, has that changed. and that is going to be, i think, the big moment of the night is, does donald trump take florida? if he does not, it's going to make the path ahead nearly impossible i think. >> martha, let's take a look at the big picture here and the entire campaign. what has really mattered? issues barely have come up at times, it seems. >> as you know, robin, i've been crossing the country and talking to voters. issues do come up. they really do. they talk about immigration and they talk about the supreme court. but i think what it boils down to is temperament and character.
7:36 am
have the temperament and character to take care of those issues, to address the issues they're talking about. to address national security. i heard again and again, temperament questions about donald trump and character questions about hillary clinton. so in the end, i think that's really what will make up people's minds. >> and bottom line, both candidates enter election day the least liked candidates in american history. so mayor blake, let me bring this to you. you are a hillary clinton supporter. even if she wins, looks like she's not going to have a honeymoon. americans saying they don't like her. how does she address it? >> you've seen secretary as a resilient woman and i think she will be a resilient president. she understands that we have to heal our country. that's why she talks about the fact that we are stronger together. she understands the diversity of our country is truly our strength. and i think that she is the right person at the right time when this country needs to come together to lead us. >> you know being in baltimore. how do you go about doing that, healing? >> you have to get in there and
7:37 am
ma he knows the ground game. he knows how to get in communities and get things done. and you have a -- we will have a president who shows every single day that she cares about american families. and i think that will be the healing that our country needs. >> don't underestimate the excitement that will be there if, in fact, she wins. this dislike will go away at least briefly because she'll be the elected president. and she'll be the first woman president. and that will cause a tremendous amount of excitement. country is exhausted from this election. we are all going to be hungry for something to bring the country together. >> a hug. >> and i think whoever wins is going to be given a gift. they're going to be given that moment to bring the country together. i hope they're wise enough to do it. >> matt, they'll require partners as well. for the sake of argument, if hillary clinton wins, as you believe, what do you expect from republicans in washington? >> well, my guess is paul ryan and mitch mcconnell and others are going to basically take the
7:38 am
take the keys away from him being the designated driver and position them as representing the republican party going forward. i think that's their biggest concern tonight. who is the leader of the republican party after tonight? >> all of you will be here with us tonight. thank you very much. get some sleep during the day. coming up here how secure are your votes and can the election be hacked? brian ross is here with what americans should really be worried about as we head to the polls. we'll be b minutes. ? ? ?

7:41 am
anybody trying to hack into the election. and here is abc's investigative correspondent brian ross with much more on this. good morning, brian. >> reporter: well, good morning, robin. the watch is on this morning as nearly every state has asked the federal government for help to protect its voting system from being hacked. but the fact that each state for the most part has its own somewhat antiquated, not always internet-friendly way of doing things, is probably the best protection against the final outcome somehow being affected by a cyberattack. or as one candidate has claimed rigged. >> the system is rigged. the system is rigged, folks. it's all rigged. we're in a rigged system. the system is totally rigged and broken. >> reporter: cybersecurity experts have long warned about how simple it would be to mess with individual electronic voting booths. >> it would be very easy for someone to put a piece of malware on this type of device especially if these cards are not encrypted.
7:42 am
manipulate the card to either plant an embedded code on one of these devices or multiply the number of votes they're submitting. >> reporter: there is no evidence any such rigging has ever taken place. but at least four states, including illinois, have had their voter registration rolls targeted or scanned. >> we're highly confident that nothing was added, nothing was deleted, nothing was altered. >> reporter: but officials are concerned the scanning by hackers in russia or elsewhere may have been just a preparation for today. >> there have been a variety of scanning activities which is a preamble for potential intrusion activities. >> reporter: and security experts say the aim could be to cause confusion, hitting targets other than the voting systems themselves. >> organizations could hack into a social media system, could begin posting inaccurate or misleading information regarding the election. trying to undermine confidence in our election system. >> reporter: u.s. officials say they have sent word to the russians in, quote, the

any attempt to attack the u.s. election system today will have the harshest consequences. >> can they do anything to stop these cyberattacks? >> reporter: they can. they're on patrol right now. department of homeland security headquarters. they can shut down attacks from overseas and can shut down the lines and blacklist a known address that is trying to attack into the system. >> brian, how about security in general? >> very high, especially here in new york with both candidates here outside trump tower this morning. trucks lining the outside to guard against crowds coming or very heavy security. >> all right, brian, thank you. >> the u.s. has fingered the russians. let's see what the russians say. our alex marquardt is in moscow this morning. you know, putin has been a major player in this campaign the whole way. of course, he's denying these charges from the u.s. intelligence officials. >> reporter: good morning, george. that's right. he has, of course, denied any role in the hacking. and in speaking with experts here, it's unclear whether an
7:44 am
from putin or from the kremlin, whether something a bit more independent. that's likely we will never have an answer to. what is clear is that he has been seizing on the anger and division in the u.s. to fuel instability. and that's something that he's had quite some success with. >> he's been such a player in this entire election. we know that he was not happy with hillary clinton as secretary of state, vladimir putin, especially for what the u.s. did after he went into ukraine. donald trump said a lot of great things about putin. putin has said a couple of things about donald trump in return. but do we have any indication about who he really wants to win? >> reporter: no, we don't really know who he'd like to see inside the white house. he hasn't said anything publicly. people close to the kremlin have expressed doubt about trump's unpredictability. his lack of experience. if this were left up to ordinary russians, it's much clearer. in a poll released yesterday they overwhelmingly support trump. we know that he would get around 38% of the vote to clinton's 9%. either way they're getting ready for both candidates here.

7:48 am
election cycle. let's start with indiana. governor mike pence dropped his re-election bid so he could be donald trump's running mate and recent polls are showing eric holcomb, his lieutenant governor, in a tight race with democrat john gregg. it's a controversial law that is allowing businesses to deny services to same-sex couples that is on the ballot there. it's playing a major part in th big on the ballots this year. five states are considering whether or not to legalize it. maine, massachusetts, arizona, nevada and california and that state is home to more than 10% of the u.s. population. so a lot of people impacted with that one. and then also in the golden state, a potential law on ammunition. prop 63 would make it illegal to possess magazines that hold more than ten rounds and require background checks for people buying bullets. it came about in the wake of the massacre in san bernardino. one more in california, voters
7:49 am
death penalty prop 62 would scrap it entirely and replace it with life in prison. so a lot of people heading to the polls not just with the presidential candidate in mind, but voting on a lot of these propositions, robin. >> it is so important, amy, to keep that in mind. you're right about that. and coming up in our next half hour, from the trumps to the clintons, how are the candidates' families shaping the election? we all know there's a lot of tension on election day and prior to. and we have some great ways to deal with the stress. dr. ashton is going to be here with that. that's coming up.

8:15 am
off the trail this season. >> and since you mention that, george, the results of a "gma" exclusive poll suggests more voters believe the trump family has been a greater asset than the clinton family. 46% to 41%. but will that family support sway voters? let's go back to abc's paula faris. she's in miami shores, florida, with much more on this. hey there. looking good there, paula. >> good morning. hi there. thanks, robin. family, ah, we all love our families, right? well, as we just mentioned, trump's family is seen more of an asset than hillary clinton's family. families tend to humanize the candidates. but as we all know, families can bring out the best in us, and the absolute worst. it's a long-standing political tradition. >> he will make fantastic president. >> she's strong enough to be president. >> i am so fiercely, ridiculously proud of my mom. >> reporter: the potential first families pounding the campaign pavement for that presidential win. >> we get a sense of who they

through their spouse. we want to get a human connection to that individual. families give us that connection. >> she's the best darned change-maker i have ever met in my entire life. >> reporter: still hugely popular in democratic circles, president bill clinton has tried to capitalize on that love. staying largely on message while campaigning in states where his wife's opponent is strong. >> i have been aware of his love for this country since we first met. >> reporter: but in a rare move for political spouses, melania trump has been mostly absent from the trail. >> so it's hard to say whether she's been a positive or negative factor. she really has been a neutral factor. she really hasn't taken to the stump herself. we really haven't gotten a direct connection to melania trump through any of her independent efforts. >> my only mission is to get him there because i know he can make a difference. >> reporter: some saying the trump children, especially ivanka, have filled that void. the eldest trump daughter
8:17 am
strongest political assets even announcing major policy plans. >> we had a very comprehensive plan for how to make child care more affordable, more accessible, create more optionality. >> i think ivanka trump has been a better surrogate and a more effective surrogate for her father than any of her siblings or melania trump. i think she's been poised, she's been on message. >> i know with all my heart that my mother will make us proud as our next president. >> reporter: and as an experienced campaigner, some political analysts say that chelsea clinton has helped to show the softer side of her mother. >> i think where chelsea clinton has broken through, it's in talking about her mom as a mom. talking about herself as a mom. it's the personal side, not the policy side that chelsea clinton can vouch for her mom's candidacy. >> la familia. so who would do what within the administration? melania says as potential first
8:18 am
donald trump, a lot of people really want his children to get involved said that they probably would not serve in any capacity in the white house. as for hillary clinton, bill would serve in some sort of role focusing on the economy and chelsea clinton has told many friends that if her parents called upon her, she would return to the white house. keeping it all in the family, guys. >> all in the family. looking good there in miami, thank you, paula. our little slogan for our family is family, we may not have it all together but together we have it all. >> yep. >> good one. >> that's how it is. thank you. coming up, what are your kids saying about america's next president?

8:37 am
>> well, yeah, the day that director comey had released his update to the letter. we had no way to communicate or even know about it and we told the clinton campaign staffers about the story and seeing their faces and not being able to report it out, it was quite a situation, but, you know, people lived in a time without internet so -- >> there's got to be a way. we did it before. we have to do it again. candace, not one but two embed, with jeb bush first and then trump and a bit of a mishap on your end once. >> well, you know, i think through the course of this year and a half i've traveled to 700 -- i've traveled to 300 city, 38 state, probably 700,000 miles so sometimes you forget where you are so i was in wisconsin supposed to be driving to milwaukee. i put in the name of my hotel driving catching up on calls and see signs for minneapolis, i had driven 3 1/2 hours in the wrong direction so needless to say i missed that event. >> a woman after my own heart.

8:43 am
candidate wins because i support and mention an issue so you're always relating it to something and also make it relatable to how you deal with a loss or how you act when you win. when your soccer team loses or wins and you're like good game, if you lost you go back and say how can i make myself better as an individual and also the team h is all about one country and all of us together. >> i love that. be a classy winner, be a classy loser. >> a teachable moment. that's wha telling us about. that's what parents can do. what can parents do for themselves. >> the first thing is acknowledge the stress. that's number one. number two, talk about it. don't feel like you have to keep it inside just because it's a loaded topic and then you know i always think focus on the basic, trifecta of health, eat well, try to sleep well, try to move your body every day and you know i'm a big believer in meditation as i know you are. >> i did it this morning. >> i think we need a double session today. maybe three.
8:44 am
up. that's right. >> three people. >> yes. >> every day. we need it. >> it really does -- people say who can't do it, if we can do it, you can do it. would you encourage watching tonight with your children? >> well, absolutely because, again, you know, competition is good. you learn to grow, you learn maturity but so is cooperation so we need to talk about how we can cooperate together and unity, moving forward with healing and forgiveness, and most importantly, love and hope for the future. >> and please let people know, because i' over again the stressful feeling. it's okay. it's okay. this is a very important time. >> you're human. your brain is always thinking and on and it's am i going to be stressed or relaxed and choose to practice med take and think about what's positive. >> uh-huh. so important. >> any pizza? >> i'll have a slice. >> doctor's orders. >> doctor's orders. you heard from the doctor. thank you both very much.

after all, when there are no ceilings the sky's the limit. >> russia, if you're listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails. >> and they showed he didn't pay any federal income tax so -- >> that makes me smart. >> donald supported the invasion of iraq. >> wrong. >> that is absolutely -- >> wrong. >> proved. >> which means he's either not that rich. >> wrong. >> not that >> wrong. >> or he's never paid tacks in his life. >> wronger. >> as clinton tries to enter the van she loses her footing and nearly collapses. >> you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. >> grab them by the [ bleep ]. you can d anything. >> i said it. i was wrong and i apologize. >> avalanche of accusations against donald trump. >> such a nasty woman. >> and you know what else i prepared for, i prepared to be
8:50 am
>> the fbi gets a warrant to examine thousands of e-mails from a top clinton aide. >> it's pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election. >> our new poll shows the race for the white house remains neck and neck. >> the story and mark updegrove joins cokie and matt. it's like -- you sit back and you watch that. >> >> no, no, what was the biggest moment for you. >> we saw a lot of them there. but i also think that back in the republican primaries, when we had all of those people, how did we get to donald trump? and one of the moments was when george was doing the debate in new hampshire and chris christie just went after marco rubio. >> it was martha and david doing the debate but i agree. i think that was an absolutely key moment in the campaign, had that not happened marco rubio was rising.
8:51 am
new hampshire. would have had a different primary race. what about you? >> my moment which set all of this in motion was the day he came down that escalator and gave that speech because i think it set him up at that point to win the republican primary and also set him up an implanted the problem that he's likely to have tonight with latino voters and other voters of color. so that speech, that escalator, that moment changed the republican primary and changed the nature of this election. >> that escalator ride was over 500 days ago when you to that moment. >> wow. >> mark, the historian, will history be kind. >> i don't think history will be kind to the election cycle. what i'm struck by when you look at those, how profoundly different these candidates are. you have the establishment candidate in hillary clinton. no one is surprised that hillary clinton got the nomination and you have the anti-establishment candidate in donald trump.
8:52 am
know he got that. if you don't have a distinct choice, if you don't know who you're choosing when you go to the polls, you haven't been paying attention. >> you know, there's something quite wonderful about that, i mean, this is the consent of the governed. that was always the american experiment and the idea that someone who is totally from the outside with his whole party apparatus against him and all of the conservative intellectuals against him, first of all wins the nomination and possibility of being president at thes you something about the american system. >> regardless of the result tonight history will be made in two ways tonight, first it'll be the most diverse electorate we've ever seen in an election in the history of the country and, secondly, no matter if donald trump wins or hillary clinton wins it will be historic. donald trump win, somebody without any political experience and military experience has never got elected president and the first woman president if hillary clinton wins, history will be made tonight in history on both sides. >> and we will be here all night long. you will be here with us.
