logging major miles today, even adding a late stop in normally democratic minnesota. making a final play for michigan. >> nobody said it was going to be easy for us. but we will never be stopped. never, ever be stopped. >> and stepping out. saturday night live gets a last jab in before election day. >> let's get to what's obviously the big story of the week. >> please be his taxes. please be his taxes. >> secretary clinton's e-mails. >> okay. >> the fbi is not trying to help me. the fbi doesn't like me. i mean, what even is the fbi? >> i'm going to grab coffee. you want something? >> i'm good. thanks, sweetie. >> and then a final appeal after going off stage and out of character. >> now it's time to get out there and vote. none of this will have mattered if you don't vote.
>> we can't tell you who to vote for. but on tuesday, we all get a chance to choose what kind of country we want to live in. ♪ >> good day, everyone. i'm andrea mitchell on a beautiful, windy, cold fall day in new hampshire, one of the key battleground states that doesn't vote early and could go either way on tuesday in a race to 270 votes -- electoral votes that's getting closer by the minute. our new poll out this morning illustrating that tightening. hillary clinton up over donald trump by only four points nationally, 44 to 40. after enjoying a double digit lead in our last poll a few weeks ago. of course, that was before the fbi letter. joining me now kasey nuhunt in
philadelphia and hallie jackson covering donald trump in new york and mark murray with our latest polling. the battleground map. philadelphia, let's talk about why philadelphia and they have even added a stop tomorrow morning in pittsburgh. pennsylvania, all important trying to nail down that city vote. >> reporter: it is amazing how many times we have been back here to philadelphia covering this campaign. with both hillary clinton herself but also all of her top surrogates, the president, the first lady. they have all been right through here. in fact, the president's case rallying right behind me here in front of the art museum. it tells you just what their focus is these last couple of days. almost all of hillary clinton's senior people that have worked on the campaign and in clinton world over many years, you know many of the faces well, they were gathered late last night at the hotel where she stayed to kind of celebrate this final
somewhat nostalgic weekend. so many of them are here in pennsylvania helping to get out the vote. if she can hold this state and make sure there are no cracks in the blue wall, in places like michigan, for example, then she will have a very straightforward path to 270 electoral college votes. you can see from this strategy in the last couple of days, that there is concern about potential cracks in that wall. you have not just hillary clinton but joe biden here in scranton, his hometown, about to take the stage. hillary clinton will be stopping in pittsburgh tomorrow before she flies on to grand rapids. i think that's really going to be one of the stories we're focused on here in the final days. is there a potential surprise brewing in michigan? they got surprised there by bernie sanders. i was with bernie sanders that night. we were less surprised having covered bernie across that state. one clinton official did tell me the reason they're going to grand rapids or part of the reason is because they want to make sure that they're being
seen talking to voters outside of detroit, outside of the african-american base. they also remember that they neglected some of those areas in michigan in the primary. they want to make sure they don't make that mistake again. >> hallie jackson in new york where donald trump's campaign was -- is headquartered. he is crisscrossing the country. the stuff that doesn't make sense is adding minnesota. >> reporter: so interesting. kellyanne conway was talking about this this morning. she says there are internal polls showing donald trump behind just by three in minnesota. that is -- it's kind of a head scratching choice considering how blue tt state is. it has voted democratic every election since 1972. these are the stops donald trump is making today alone. a couple of notable places i want to point out. one is iowa where the new poll shows him with a pretty comfortable lead over hillary clinton. the other is michigan. this is a priority for the
campaign according to trump aides. there are some inside the campaign that say minnesota, they are in that area, they will dabble there. but really the focus is michigan. additionally, pennsylvania. pennsylvania more of an uphill climb. i think there are sources inside the campaign or there are telling us that michigan is probably the best shot at flipping one of the key blue battlegrounds. i want to share with you, where he has been this entire campaign, the focus -- the places where he is focusing, florida, ohio, pennsylvania, north carolina. not surprising. these are the four that it is going to come down to. the four that are the most important for his campaign before you even get into whether or not he can flip a blue battleground. >> hallie jackson, thanks. going to the battleground map, mark murray, the campaign has said the clinton campaign has said if they can hold the midwest, win pennsylvania, they don't need north carolina or florida. obviously, it would be a bonus point. they just need one other state. it would be nevada or new hampshire. that's clearly why we're here
today. the news from nevada has been very positive in terms of the large number of hispanic votes, which they think helps them. >> that's a great point. let me walk you through that whole strategy on what the clinton campaign would need to do and why either nevada or new hampshire is so important. you look at our current battleground map. hillary clinton has the advantage, 274. that's more than the 270 needed to win the presidency. donald trump is at 180. say you end up taking nevada off the map somehow. then hillary clinton is at 268. her ability to get over 270, you either have to get -- turn new hampshire blue or if that doesn't work, you have to put nevada blue. so they need one of those two states, if they hold on to the rest of the midwest, talking pennsylvania, minnesota and the michigan. >> let's look inside the new nbc new/wall street journal poll. when you look inside it, who are the clinton voters?
who are the trump voters? >> to me, the poll actually tells two different stories. on the one hand as you mentioned earlier, it shows a tightening race. you end up having hillary clinton with a four-point lead among likely voters in the four-way matchup. it's five points in a two-way matchup. this is certainly closer than it was right after the "access hollywood" video where hillary clinton had a double digit lead. when you look in the poll, there's so much stability. you see donald trump with a slight but not overwhelmingly lead among men. you end up seeing him with a slight but not overwhelming leeds wilead with whites. then look at hillary clinton's numbers. she has a 15 point lead among women. she has nearly an 80-point lead among african-americans. 45-point lead among latinos. then more than 20 among 18 to 34-year-olds, the millennials. so when you look, these are such
stable numbers. these really haven't budged at all. as our pollster put it on "meet the press" today, he said, if donald trump is going to end up losing latinos by historic margins, if he's not going to do well among latino voters, the one place he has to make things up is with white voters. the problem that trump has is that with whites with a college degree, he is losing it by ten points. that's something that we haven't seen in modern area. so donald trump has to do well with this demographic if he's going to lose big among all the others. >> that tells you exactly why in the closing week the hillary clinton campaign reminding everyone of every negative thing that donald trump has said about muslims, about people overseas, about immigration and hispanics, of course, on day one. thank you so much. joining me here in manchester, new hampshire, democratic
senator jeanne shaheen. thank you very much. >> nice to be here on this windy day. >> on this cold, windy day. senator, tell me how it feels to you. we see a neck and neck race here. she had a comfortable lead here a week and a half, two, three weeks ago. >> it's a close, close race. but i've been all over the state in the last week. i was in traditionally republican territory yesterday in wolfboro and conway. they had record numbers of people turning out to volunteer. we knocked on a record number of doors yesterday with over 5,000 volunteers. people are energized. i've never had an election before where people came up to me and said, i'm so worried about this. i can't sleep. i'm hearing that in this election. people are turning that worry into action. they are working. they are out doing everything they can to make a difference in this election. >> will we see in a word cloud -- we see terrible words
attached to hillary clinton to our polling. the trustworthy issue. that has been reinforced by the fbi bombshell. she's had to counteract that by going negative. not the way she wanted to finish the campaign the last couple of weeks -- the last week i should say. >> i find it ironic that given trump's approach, his hateful rhetoric, his name calling against muslims, against immigrants, against african-americans, against latinos, against women, against people with disabilities that people are saying hateful things about hillary. because it's donald trump who is really promoting hate in this election. we saw it again on friday where people were yelling out just awful things, where we saw our former governor making a sexist joke. just inappropriate for people who are aspiring to be president of the united states to have
that kind of nasty, hateful rhetoric and that kind of campaign. >> is there a hidden woman's vote for hillary clinton -- s suburban vote? you see republican women up here. nicolle wallace was suggesting there could be a hidden republican suburban women's vote, women who don't want to confess they're going to vote for hillary clinton. >> i think hillary is going to get a big vote from women. they understand what that "access hollywood" tape meant. they understand the language that donald trump has used means for women. they understand that he doesn't support equal pay for equal work, that he doesn't support increasing the minimum wage, most minimum wage earners, two-thirds are women. they understand what that language means for women and opportunities and equal rights. and i think they're going to turn out in record numbers. >> one of the interesting things
that we have seen in the last couple of days is that when hillary clinton was in cleveland on friday night and campaigning with beyonce and jay z, beyonce had a sign up about what do you want me to do, stay home and bake cookies and serve tea? and the interesting thing for me personally was that i asked her a question about that in illinois in the primary. that's what prompted the answer. in 1992. from george stephanopoulos' book and other writers, we know the advisors for bill clinton, they just went to her and said, you have to go fix that. you are turning off all of the homemakers and women who work at home and the people who are suspicious of you, hillary rodham clinton, all that baggage she was carrying with her. all these years later, beyonce is promoting that as a plus for hillary clinton. how things have changed for women. >> well, i hope so.
i like to bake cookies. i like to be out working in the political arena. think most women are not pigeon holed. we have responsibilities as mothers and wives and daughters. we also have responsibilities for most women to also provide a salary to support the family. so i think -- i hope that long gone are the days when people -- women are pigeonholed in that way. >> i want to ask you about kelly ayotte. really staked out a lot of policy issues. she's now in a neck and neck race against hasan, the governor of the state persuaded to run, considered one of the strongest democratic candidates in the senate. this is so close now. as the race has tightened and as that fbi letter has reverberated, is that giving strength to republican incumbents, including kelly
ayotte? >> not that we have seen. i think maggie hassan has a reputation as being a great governor. she's done a lot of things to support families, to support children, to provide health care for people in this state who couldn't get health care. so i think -- i'm optimistic. i think she's going to win on tuesday. >> if kelly ayotte were to win, i mean, any of one of these close races, nevada, north carolina, here in new hampshire, could determine control of thea >> what if hillary clinton wins the election, she's favored, but doesn't win the senate because of what happened with the fbi or everything else that led to the polls tightening in this last week to ten days? how hard is it going to be for hillary clinton as president knowing what you know about the gridlock in the senate? >> you know, i'm hopeful that people are going to wake up and understand that the people of
america don't want the gridlock we have seen in the senate. i hear that everywhere i go in new hampshire whether you are a republican or democrat. people say to me, why can't you all work together to get things done for this country? to have people already saying if hillary clinton is the president, we're going to not support any of her nominees, we're not going to let her appoint anyone to the supreme court, we're going to keep her from doing anything she wants to do, that is not what people in this country want to hear. people want to hear that the election is over, we're going to bring this country back together. we absolutely must do that, no matter who the winner is. >> here we are in new hampshire where we have had two women senators and a woman governor. women power in new hampshire. thank you so much, senator shaheen, former governor yourself. >> thank you. it's great to have you here. i hope everybody goes out and votes tuesday. >> that's the main thing. everybody has to go out and vote. coming up, the new wave. could a surge of hispanic voting
as a supervisor at pg&e, it's my job to protect public safety, keeping the power lines clear, while also protecting the environment. the natural world is a beautiful thing, the work that we do helps us protect it. public education is definitely a big part of our job, to teach our customers about the best type of trees
to plant around the power lines. we want to keep the power on for our customers. we want to keep our community safe. this is our community, this is where we live. we need to make sure that we have a beautiful place for our children to live. together, we're building a better california. let's get out. let vote for the future. let vote for what we want for our country and our chuildren ad our grandchildren. god bless you. >> hillary clinton weathering the storm in battleground florida. a huge rainstorm forcing her to cut short her speech. she could only speak for about seven minutes in that downpour. president obama is rallying supporters in the sunshine state later today where the hispanic early vote is breaking all
records. up more than two to one over four years ago. joining me now is carlos gutierrez, former secretary of commerce for george w. bush, one of the republicans who have switched over to endorse hillary clinton this year. welcome. thank you very much. >> pleasure. thank you. >> let's talk about the hispanic turnout. we're seeing very large uptick in the hispanic vote. some have suggested this could be -- go all the way back to the way donald trump opened his campaign, that very first day talking about the mexican americans and describing them as rapists and murderers. what is your take? >> this could go down as the election of hispanic turnout. what seeps ms to be shaping up historic hispanic turnout. that's outside of florida, that's going to be overwhelmingly for hillary clinton.
the only thing that is up for grabs i believe is the cuban american vote in miami. but that has been declining for republicans. mccain was in the low 60s. romney in the low 50s. it will be very interesting to see how trump does. we have to remember that the high mark for a republican for hispanics is 44%. george w. bush. mccain 33. romney 27. i can't imagine trump going anywhere near 30. and then if you have historic turnout, which is what we're seeing, then i think the hispanic vote could well be decisive. >> it could be decisive in north carolina as well. we see it's a smaller population, but it would seem to be turning out early for hillary clinton. but nevada could be the critical point here. their battleground has been the clinton campaign's battleground,
hold the midwest, hold pennsylvania and win one more state. maybe new hampshire where i am now, but that's so tight. but nevada is where you have a real hispanic community that's turning out. >> absolutely. >> they've been lining up. >> nevada is where we have seen a lot of early hispanic voting. so that could be a very big turning point. she needs that to get well over 270. but nevada is a place to watch. florida is a place to watch. north carolina, of course, all those states where hispanics have traditionally not had a high turnout. you know, it was thanks to donald trump that hispanics are going out to vote in droves. you know, andrea, at some point, we had to have this internal debate, internal fight, internal struggle. the country has been changing since the 1950s. it's been changing dramatically. the face of the country is
different. this seems to be the election where people are taking that on. it's come to a head. and i just hope that more and more republicans reject the whole idea of nativism, of anti-immigration talk, of anti-trade, of anti-the other. the country has changed. it's not going to go back. this is the election where i believe that we will turn that page and look to the future the way it's going to be and not the way we wish it were 50 years ago. >> mr. secretary, let me ask you about michigan. you spent many years there. you were the ceo of kellogg. donald trump is going to michigan today. there's a big play for michigan. hillary clinton added a stop in grand rapids tomorrow. what are you hearing from the people you know well in michigan? >> well, you know, outside of detroit, some of the smaller towns where i lived many years,
battle creek, grand rapids, that tends to be republican. then you get to detroit. detroit is overwhelmingly democrat. trump seems to be making a play for blue collar workers, union workers, the auto industry, sends planting to mexico. i just don't think that the auto workers are buying it. i just don't think that -- the union people with whom i have spoken -- and i have spoken with quite a few -- they are hearing the rhetoric, but they're not buying it. he is making a strong play for blue collar union vote, detroit, michigan, automobile industry. i just don't think the numbers are there. >> carlos gutierrez, the former commerce secretary for george w. bush. thank you very much. >> thank you. coming up, that road to 270 running straight through florida. we will check in on the trail in of the sunshine state on the last day of early voting in
florida next on andrea mitchell reports, only on msnbc, the place for politics, live from manchest manchester, new hampshire. simulation initiated. ♪ [beeping] take on any galaxy with a car that could stop for you. simulation complete. the new nissan rogue. rogue one: a star wars story. in theaters december 16th.
just serve classy snacks and bew a gracious host,iday party. no matter who shows up. do you like nuts? two days left. two days left. this is not hyperbole. it all make come down to pennsylvania. not a joke. >> vice-president biden just moments ago trying to help hillary clinton lock down pennsylvania. he is in his hometown of scranton. he used to be called the delaware senator, of course, the third pennsylvania senator because he was in and out of pennsylvania so much. of course, delaware being so close by, next door. the last day of early in-person voting in florida though. the swing state that could be make or break for donald trump. in his battle for 270.
there are 85,000 veterans in that city of jacksonville. and donald trump is making a big play for voters with a military background. what are you hearing there? what are you learning from people you are talking to? >> reporter: andrea, i'm here hanging out at the annual air show. this is jacksonville beach, florida. the blue angels are set to perform later this afternoon. that's why you are going to hear it's very noisy here. i have been talking to veterans for the past couple of hours. this is where mitt romney edged out obama 51% to 48% in 2012. as you mentioned, tens of thousands of veterans live here in the city of jacksonville. veterans like donnie who i want you to get to know. who are you supporting and have you voted yet? >> no, i haven't voted. it will be trump/pence. >> reporter: why are you
waiting? >> just waiting to see what else comes out against hillary. i know there's going to be more. she's done so much. there's got to be more. >> reporter: do you think that donald trump is the best candidate for the veteran community? >> absolutely. yes. >> reporter: i know you did not support mitt romney in 2012. why not support hillary clinton this time around? >> she's too corrupt. the things she's done, i think she ought to be in prison. >> reporter: thank you so much. many veterans, andrea, think along those lines. according to a fox news poll from october, donald trump has a 19-point lead over hillary clinton with registered veterans nationwide. this is his base in florida. it's why he campaigned here last thursday. but where it's obama campaigned last thursday. this is where the democrats hope to cut him off. one final thing for you, it's a big military weekend here. the big navy notre dame game
last night. i know you are a big fan of football. navy beat notre dame 28-27. i have to say, more people are talking about that football game here today than politics. >> thank you so much. with apologies to our colleague anne thompson, a big notre dame fan with that navy victory. late deciders with only two days to go, why hillary clinton is making a stop in new hampshire, a state with four electoral votes. you are watching andrea mitchell reports only on msnbc, the place for politics, live from manchester, new hampshire. why do some cash back cards make earning bonus cash back so complicated? they limit where you can earn bonus cash back to a few places... ...and those places keep changing every few months. the quicksilver card from capital one doesn't do any of that. with quicksilver you earn unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere.
[ cougshh. i have a cold with this annoying runny nose. better take something. dayquil liquid gels doesn't treat a runny nose. it doesn't? alka-seltzer plus cold and cough liquid gels fight your worst cold symptoms including your runny nose. oh, what a relief it is! if you want to be a force for change, first of all, get out and vote. critical importance. the momentum is on our side in
massachusetts and elsewhere around the country. but we want to bring it home on tuesday. >> ivanka trump campaigning in new hampshire for her father today right here in this critical battleground state. joining me now is a republican strategist. thanks for being here. >> look at these leaves. >> isn't it gorgeous? >> here we are in new hampshire. who would have thought hillary clinton coming to new hampshire. the president coming here tomorrow. ivanka trump already here today. mike pence is in the state today. new hampshire, let's talk about what the path to victory is for donald trump. we talked about the battle plan for the hillary clinton team. what does donald trump have to win? why is new hampshire so much a part of that? >> new hampshire has been used to being the most important state maybe in the primaries. but they have usually been a swing state in the general but not this swingy. the problem is, even they only
have four electoral votes, donald trump really -- he has to have florida and north carolina on any path. then there's two diverging ones. he can win nevada and new hampshire for the tie. or he can win michigan. that's why you see everyone coming here and everyone going to michigan. the clinton campaign thinks michigan is tied up at this point. my guess is based on the president going there and the candidate herself going there, that they must think michigan is within a point at this point. new hampshire, if they can take that from him, there's really no path to 271. >> if the clinton campaign is so confident about pennsylvania, why is hillary clinton there today? she and the obamas, michelle and barack obama are going to wrap it up with bill clinton and hillary clinton in philadelphia tomorrow night. she's just added pittsburgh tomorrow morning to an endless day. >> joe biden is in scranton. >> pennsylvania and new hampshire have something in common. there's no early vote. all the other states, you see whether your data matches what's happening open the ground. with pennsylvania and new
hampshire, you are really just hoping for the best. so you want to really make sure that there's no surprises. when you have only got election day do that in, you pull out all the stops. >> let's talk about the senate. there's a big senate race here. it's so tight. kelly ayotte, as i was describing her to senator shaheen, rising republican star. but in the fight of her life against the governor maggie hassan. >> i think that kelly ayotte wins this thing and maybe easily. easily being two to four points. i think that the one thing that hillary clinton has really been unable to do is help any of those down ballot races across the country for her democratic counterparts. so her weaknesses as a top of the ticket candidate are showing in those down ballot races. there's a great chance at this point that republicans keep the senate, which i don't think anyone would have thought three months ago. >> we're seeing tight races. deborah ross against richard burr. nevada really tight race. >> that's a pick up for republicans. >> that would be a pick up.
also the other races in missouri. >> missouri tightened and would be a loss republicans weren't expecting. same with north carolina. missouri, north carolina and nevada are sort of the states that no one thought would be particularly in the mix that all are in the mix, which is so 2016 at this point. >> what could be surprising? my surprise mis evan. >> in 2004, we were talking about him being the next president of the united states at one point. now he is probably not going to eek out the win in indiana that everyone thought was a gimme when he was up by 15 a couple months ago. >> any other big surprises on the senate front? >> you know, i think that you could see that split ticket voting much larger than people expect. look for comstock in northern virginia doing particularly well. hillary clinton will win her district and then so will she, probably. in the senate races, if they win, it will be the same thing.
it will be voters differentiating between donald trump and the republican party. >> when this is all over, we have to figure out what hit us. this has been a race -- a campaign that none of us, neither you nor i, ever expected. >> we are ready for it to be over. >> yes. along with the rest of the country. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thanks for weathering the cold weather with us. coming up, star power. jay z, beyonce, katy perry and the king of cleveland, lebron james all out on the trail for hillary clinton trying to energize voters. will they deliver? you are watching andrea mitchell reports only on msnbc, the place for politics, live from manchester, new hampshire.
politics, that they're not politicized, that they're not used as a weapon to advantage either side in partisan argum t arguments. and i want to make sure we continue with that tradition and with that norm. >> president obama speaking to msnbc's the reverend al sharpton. the president about to leave for florida. see him there at andrews air force base. he will stump for hillary clinton near orlando. two senior house democrats are calling on the justice department to investigate whether the fbi is leaking information that could help donald trump's campaign. elijah cummings and john conyers want to know if people received leaked e-mails from the fbi. joining me is james pendell. driven up to new hampshire to be with us here today.
thank you for being here. what is your read on the race here in new hampshire? it's been tightening and she had a pretty big lead three weeks ago, let's say. it's really narrowed. especially since the fbi. >> absolutely. days before the fbi, new hampshire almost seemed to be very much a lock for hillary clinton. donald trump had never led in a general electn poll here. she was leading anywhere between 12 points or five points. it was a consistent lead. we have seen that lead absolutely collapse. one reason why are independent voters. they make up about 38% of the state. they're the largest voting block in this state. 20% of them in our recent poll last week from the boston globe showed that here in new hampshire, about 20% of those independent voters said they were less likely to vote for clinton because of the fbi e-mails. it's a reason you see the poll numbers tighten. >> that is a huge impact. in a race where she lost by 20 points to bernie sanders in the primaries, this is not a natural for her. it bailed her out in 2008 in
those early stages of the primary against barack obama. it's a heartbreaker in new hampshire. >> if you take the long view as you did, this is to be considered clinton country. the clintons remarked it seemed like their secretary home politically outside of arkansas. new york is very much involved in that now. it has been amazing to see the collapse. a 22 point loss in february. now her really on the ropes in the state. that's where new hampshire voters have a unique with the clintons where they like to see her on the ropes. if you look at the poll numbers, they are absolutely tightening. democrats feel pretty good about their chances. but their model includes more democrats showing up. consider what's going to happen tuesday. we will possibly have the highest voter turnout in new hampshire with 72% showing up. a tenth of them, 72,000 or so, will be people who will show up to the polls, register to vote and become first-time voters in the state. there's a lot of variables going on. it's one of the reasons that you will see mike pence and hillary
clinton on different stages but nearby in the state and clearly donald trump ending his campaign here as well as president obama here tomorrow. >> the fact is that you have got a state where a very popular woman running for -- to hold on to her senate seat is running against a popular female governor the state. women could be determinative here? >> about susolutabsolutely. it's the most high profile race in u.s. history in the credentials. the sitting u.s. senator versus a sitting senator. both very popular. determine the future of the u.s. senate. you see the governor's race, issues about planned parenthood and abortion. it's about the female vote. it's critical in the last 72 hours. stepping back, new hampshire has always been and lately has been called the swingingest of swing states in the last ten years. it moves one way very hard core in mid term elections for
republicans, presidential races have been very much different. to see the presidential candidates here in the final weekend is something we have seen every single time since 2004, 2008, 2012 and again finishing in 2016. >> their closing messages so different. look at the final ads from -- except for a two-minute ad being cut today that's in prime time tomorrow night for hillary clinton. the closing messaging this weekend from the two campaigns. >> the new government controlled by you the american people. the establishment has trillions of dollars at stake in this election. for those who control the levers of power in washington and for
the global special interests, they partner with these people that don't have your good in mind. ♪ he's my voice
♪ i got the eye of the tiger ♪ the fighter, dancing through the fire ♪ ♪ because i am a champion ♪ and you're gonna hear me roar ♪ >> as james joins me here watching those ads, we go to philadelphia to the mount ari section, the church of god and christ in philadelphia. hillary clinton. >> and i am going do my very best to expand opportunities for others every single day. [ applause ] let us remember what scripture tells us to whom much is given, much is required. so despite all the noise and distractions
of this campaign, i have tried to stay focused on what matters, and that's you.
and your families. your communities across america. and that's what i want this election to be about, and that's what i want my presidency to be about as well. breaking down the barriers that hold americans back. i have spent the last year and a half meeting with and listening to people, people like the mothers of the movement who have lost their children to gun violence or to police incidents. they are now trying to prevent other parents have experiencing that tragic loss. i've met parents and kids in flint, michigan, who drank water that was poisoned. but they're holding on to their hope and fighting harder for a healthier community. i've met families who lost everything in the great recession. who saw generations of work wiped out. lost their homes, many of them. lost their jobs, many more.
lost all their savings. and now they're trying to rebuild so they have some sense of security and something to pass on to their kids. i've carried those voices with me every day in this campaign, and i will promise you this, i will carry them with me into the white house, every single day i am there. [ applause ] and i know we've got some tough challenges ahead of us. i am so grateful for president obama's leadership. he does not get the credit he deserves for everything he did to save our economy, put us on the right track. [ applause ] and i love it when he talks -- i'm so grateful for all of his support in this election, both he and michelle have been amazing out on the campaign trail. and i love it when the president, you know, talks about supporting me and he says he wants to pass on the baton to
me. and i'm just hoping he will bend down low enough that i can reach it. because he's a tall man. i'm not sure. he is going to have to bend. i'm going to have to stand on my toes. those are big shoes to fill. but we have got to continue to take on the problem of systemic racism, to rid ourselves of deep rooted injustice, hate and fear. [ applause ] we need end to end reform in our criminal justice system. with real follow through. i want us to get rid of what is called the school to prison pipeline and replace it with the cradle to college -- >> hillary clinton in mount airy, a great area of philadelphia in church this morning. campaigning with obviously losing her voice as she finishes up this last 48 hours. democratic new hampshire state senator lou delasandro joins me
now. you have fought the republicans for many years. >> been around. >> been around a long time. we've known each other a long time. hillary clinton started losing her voice in cleveland with the big rally friday night. yesterday, she was in florida in a huge storm. she's got to power through. she will be here tonight. you will be at her side. how important is it for her to finish here in new hampshire? the president is coming tomorrow. she's going to bring with her and be introduced by the gold star father. what does that mean in terms of trying to appeal to the independent voters? >> i think it's a very strong, strong message that she's going to deliver. i'm going to have din we are khan tonight before the rally. it's a message that has to be clear. i'm for you. i like you. i represent you. i respect you. on the other side, that lack of respect is preeminent. that will play out. we will see a w here in new hampshire.
i think nationwide hillary will deliver. >> you have seen a double digit lead here in new hampshire evaporate in the last couple weeks. what happened? >> i think the anger being manifested by the body politic is beginning to rear its ugly head. we're getting closer to the election. the solid nature of the trump support, the solid nature of the clinton support is beginning to manifest itself. we're getting a little banging of heads here. as a result of that, the polls are showing that. but the key to this election is still the middle. what's left of the middle has to be captured by hillary. we need a five to seven point victory here in order to carry the ticket. it's essential. i think her get out the vote effort is key. the underground effort looks good, it's strong. i did campaigning with hassan and austin. i think the sentiment and feeling is beginning to rev up. we are getting close to d day. i think we're going do it.
>> what's the likelihood that hillary clinton pulls it out but you can't pull maggie hassan over the finish like because of kelly ayotte? >> kelly is very popular. i had kelly's father in school. i had him as a student basically 100 years ago. kelly is popular. she's very popular. her support is pretty deep. that's why hassan needs the five to seven point victory on clinton's part in order to draw -- >> clinton hasn't shown very much coattails. >> it's been a problem. i think we're going to see a good affect on tuesday. hassan needs it. she's a popular governor. the old story, you are a great governor. why are you running for another office? we have seen that. but i think hassan is working hard. i was with her all morning. proof will be in the get out the vote effort. >> state senator, mr. democrat of new hampshire, thank you so
