dropped sharply with less trade with mexico. the mood on wall street is similar, to after that surprise brexit vote when voters in the uk shock financial markets and voted to leave the eu. there was a massive sell off after that brexit vet but there was a quick rebound. we will see if that happens now or if this sell off is more long term, and jim and rahel, we can tell you we have seen, again, overseas and mark here rebounding a bit from initial steep, steep losses, when it looked at first that trump was going to win, jim and rahel. >> futures down 300. one thing for sure election of the donald trump has president is giving the country a reality check. >> joining us is rich, he is on afternoons there three to 6:00 on our sister station talk radio wpht. we necessity you did not sleep last night. >> sleep? good who needs sleep. >> come on, presidential election. >> exactly. >> it was an exciting night but is what your reaction to the outcome not only of the presidential race but also

are doing their polling, data and relying they refused to see these massive crowd donald trump was getting was translate nothing to votes. they were like rock concerts. these were hose faithful, diehard who would vote ape get their friend to vote. pol stores, they completely hissed it. this will up end polling as we know it. i don't know if i will ever trust a poll ever again. >> they were talking about the exit poles and we were talking about just purely statistically data models all got it wrong. >> rahel, that is most amazing part about this. exit polls were wrong, early polls were wrong, every poll was wrong. this election from top to bottom if you look at what they said, larry saabatoe and chris, had hillary clinton winning 330 electoral vote yesterday. you had huffing ton post, 99 percent chance of the winning the election. they still famous practicing not cater had 60 percent chance of winning.

about hillary clinton. he does want to bring the country together now. he has to as president. that is part of the job. mike pence said the same thing. hopefully we can put this ugly miserable campaign behind us that lasted 510 days and now move on this is country and unite. >> let's begin with secretary clinton were you advised she didn't make a public statement last night. >> i was but glad she called to concede because i thought they were going to try nonsense, and i thought that would have really ripped things apart further. she didn't have thumbs. numbers out of philadelphia were not there. what is interesting they looked at pennsylvania before they made decision to concede because they thought they could get extra votes out of philadelphia. when those votes didn't come they knew it was game over. >> we were saying for months about how important philadelphia, pennsylvania, would be and real interesting, sort of the outcome, but with such talk about the video we have seen at clinton rallies, clinton campaign headquarters, people crying. this was a really emotional election and now you have no matter what would have

he out performed women in some areas. he crushed witt evangelicals. whatever issues might have come around the billy bush tape, didn't affect that vote at all. trump also did very well believe it or not with latina women and that is something they said latino vote will kill him. not true. he did very well with that in florida as well. college educated white voters, all came to donald trump. it was theory only ones without college degrees would vote but college educated also came home to donald trump and conservatives came home to him as well. >> thanks very much, rich. more to come. >> yes. >> we have got more on the balance of power in washington. >> coming up next. >> reporter: democrats fall short in their quest to take control of the house and senate. i'm mark albert on capitol hill with the latest on the republican victory coming
