7:11 am
the overall lead in the electoral college because unless she can still hold on to pennsylvania. >> even though we see the polls tightening, what if trump doesn't win pennsylvania? >> if he doesn't win he has to go and get a lot of other states in order to get there. that is why we can say she still has an edge. he would have to get north carolina and down a little bit based our polling and he certainly has to win florida and ohio. hillary clinton can win without florida or ohio but he has to have them. on top of that he has to flip another blue state. he has to flip maybe wisconsin and something else. so if all of that sound like it's a long string of states, it is. it is certainly possible, but he has his work cut out for me. >> a couple of weeks they said donald trump was out and had no chance and it's changing a little bit. still a long shot but changing a little bit. >> it is. i think if you look at the early vote you get some clues. donald trump says there is a hidden vote out there for him.
7:12 am
>> yes. >> but in the early vote, we are not seeing it. what we are seeing is people who have voted before coming out but the idea, so far that there are republicans who don't typically vote who are coming out, we are not seeing that yet in the early vote. he'll need that if he is going to win. >> talk about the early vote in north carolina. president obama campaigning there today for hillary clinton. joe biden was there yesterday. what does the early vote tell us? >> it tells you democrats are outpacing republicans at this point at least in registration. african-american vote is tracking where it needs to end up but she probably needs to do a little bit better than what she is seeing so far and it's older. democrats are outpacing republicans the older vote tends to favor trump so i call this about even so far. >> thank you, anthony. >> thanks. we bring you all of the rumts as they come in on election night. coverage starts tuesday at 7:00 p.m. eastern, 6:00 central. watch all day on our streaming network cbsn. a report raises new

8:09 am
put conditions on us. the reason that comcast and time warner cable, which is a separate company, didn't get approved, one of the big reasons it didn't get approved is that comcast did not go through with some of those conditions, and this raises prices for consumers. it always does. this concentration, the consolidation of media is not good for consumers. >> you're saying it raises prices and decreases choices? >> exactly. and usually leads to worse service, even worst service. in other words, now at&t buys this content, it can favor its own content on directv or through its mobile broadband and, also, other delivers of content will be managed. >> just one quick point. jeffrey buicks was a time warner executive on friday said it

brain and about her husband's final year. >> reporter: she describes his body with dah men that. she says it drove her husband to sued and she wrote it felt like he was drowning in his own symptoms and i was drowning along with him. lewy is hard to diagnose because symptoms similar to parkinson's disease and alzheimer's disease. susan schneider williams joins us at the table for had he first tv interview since writing this. you write such he will defense about him. you were powerless in helping him see his own brilliance because so many people felt, at the time, that he committed
8:37 am
because he was sgrefdepressed. >> leyy body is so complex. depression came in only near the end. probably within a few months before he left. and it was not a predominant symptom. i think because he had had a prior history over seven or eight years prior where he did have depression but he hadn't had it that long but the tendency was to want to pick up that, you know, as the issue. but they didn't focus only on that. >> what did you see that made you think we have a problem here? >> we were celebrating our second wedding anniversary and it was october of 2013. and robin started having gut discomfort. through that experience, you know, it turned out to be nothing. the test results on that were negative. we thought it might be diverticulitis. i knew my husband's normal baseline of fear and anxiety.
8:38 am
and his fear and anxiety spiked and sustained at a level that was very scary. so that was kind of the beginning really the way i see it. and the next ten months we just -- we were chasing symptom after symptom. and the thing about lewy body disease is the person is aware of that their abilities are declining. in alzheimer's, they are not aware. that is a marked difference and can really kind of add to the terror of this particular disease. >> how much of it is physical pain? i get the sense there is something going on inside of me that is just driving me? >> that is a great question, charlie. i don't know if i have the answer to that, really. because all of the different reasons the brain are affecting different things within us. i can't answer -- i don't know. i can tell you that in his autopsy, the coroner's report was clear that he had lewy body
8:39 am
throughout all of his brain and brain stem. >> wow. >> nearly every region. >> what would you talk about? >> what would he talk about? >> yes. >> so what started to happen more and more was this issue around fear and anxiety. and his concerns over -- it got difficult for him to even interacting with people became very difficult. he would question things afterwards or during. and really in the realms of, you know, did i do okay? things that focused around insecurity or fear. >> schizophrenia? >> when we found out -- we thought we had the answer a few months before he left, he was diagnosed with parkinson's which is actually an accurate diagnosis but that was the clinical side. the pathologist was he had diffused lewy body disease which is what took him. we were in that doctor appointment with the general neurologist asking what does this mean? the parkinson's, we finally have
8:40 am
a name and what does this mean? robin asked in that appointment, do i have alzheimer's, dementia? am i schizophrenic? and it was painful later to realize why he was probably asking those questions, because he was likely keeping a lot of -- not necessarily the symptoms but the degree of symptoms to himself. >> you also wrote in this piece the caregiver is the ultimate key witness to the terrorism that they are experiencing their loved one go through. 1 in 6 people affected by brain disease. what is your advice to other caregivers? you were there. >> just that they are not alone. remember they are not alone and also to remember -- and it's hard to hold on to this -- but to remember their loved one's symptoms are coming from the brain disease. it's not coming from their heart. >> right. >> and it is -- it is terrifying to witness.
8:41 am
yet, the caregiver is the witness because the person afflicted, they are losing their ability and they may not be able to verbalize. robin was losing verbal ability and finding words and weakness of voice. so it's difficult for them to say -- >> did you think he was in danger of taking his own life? >> not at all. nobody was. we had a whole medical team. no one saw that coming. >> i knew him as well, as you know. >> yes. >> in 25 years, nobody made me laugh more than he did. i mean, it was rasemarkable. when es at a stage with you, he took you somewhere else and it was remarkable and we have all of that to remember. >> yes. >> thank you. here is a picture of you and him on your wedding day. >> so beautiful. beautiful. >> thank you. >> thank you, charlie. thank you. >> thank you, susan. you have helped a lot of people. >> i hope so. >> thank you. >> thank you. the makers of underwater drone say anybody can be a
