tv MSNBC Live With Hallie Jackson MSNBC November 9, 2016 10:00am-11:01am PST
that will be here for you now - and down the road. i have a lifetime of experience. so i know how important that is. and that does it for this edition of "andrea mitchell reports." remember, follow the show online, on facebook and on twitter. hallie jackson is of course here on msnbc. andrea, thank you very much. hi everybody. i'm hallie jackson here with two questions, and frankly two questions, what happened, and what is next? the second one definitely more important. trump won, so what now? hillary clinton and president obama today both focused on that in their speeches just within the last hour, hour and a half, explaining to their supporters how the country moves forward from here. >> this is painful. and it will be for a long time. we have seen that our nation is more deeply divided than we
thought. but i still believe in america. and i always will. and if you do, then we must accept this result and then look to the future. donald trump is going to be our president. >> everybody is sad when their side loses an election. but the day after we have to remember that we're actually all on one team. this is an intermural scrimmage. we're not democrats first, we're not republicans first. we are americans first. we're patriots first. we all want what's best for this country. that's what i heard in mr. trump's remarks last night. that's what i heard when i spoke to him directly. and i was hardened by that. >> so we've heard from president obama, we have heard from hillary clinton. and in about 58 minutes from now
we will hear from somebody a lot of folks weren't sure would keep his title of senate majority leader but did, mitch mcconnell. we're going to start off though doing some reporting today. we've got our team of reporters, chris jansing at the white house, katy tur covering the trump campaign and andrea mitchell who is just over in midtown actually at hillary clinton's concession speech. chris, toipt stai want to start. you are standing in front of what is president barack obama's white house. in two and a half months it will be donald trump's white house. what does that look like? >> well, right now it looks very somber. i mean, the transition that they've been planning for for a year they expected there to be a rose garden speech today about hillary clinton, the president-elect. they expected there to be a meeting in the oval office between hillary clinton and barack obama tomorrow. now i think everyone is trying to wrap their heads around what has happened here in their exhaustion because many of these folks, you know, have really been working overtime. they've been on a final push here in the white house to get
some things done. and frankly also working on a reduced staff, so i think there's a combination of the emotion and the tiredness. but what we saw to my mind and i've seen him many times in the rose garden was vintage barack obama. i mean he was very pragmatic about this. you know, we're all rooting for his success knowing, as he said that, that it wasn't true, but kind of being a cheerleader for america. you know, standing up for a peaceful transition saying that he's going to do everything he can to make that happen. and, you know, no one understands the consequences of this election for the democrats more than he does, his legacy at stake. it's why he was out there so much over the last month. it's why we saw michelle obama out there and joe biden out there and so many of the, i guess you could say, superstars of the administration. but in the end he has accepted what it is. and like many things we have seen him do before when he's been in defeat, if it's legislative or whether it's a
congressional election, he has focused on, okay, what do we do next. and that's what he's already addressing with his staff, hallie. >> chris, thanks. katy tur, you know, one of the things i've been hearing from sources in and out of the trump campaign is chill out. everybody needs to take a breath, pump the brakes a little bit. we don't have a new transition team we're ready to announce at least at this moment. what are you hearing? and when did they know this was going to happen? >> you know, i had a long conversation just now with a senior source. and they went into last night as the rnc did, and as most of the polls did believing that they were going to lose. you saw kellyanne conway at 5:45 yesterday afternoon on with chuck todd saying that she lamented that the republican party didn't give them the support that they wanted. so they did not believe they were going to win. they started to get hope as the polls came in and as they were seeing a strong showing. they felt really good when fox news called florida in their favor. and then they knew it.
they knew it around 1:36 a.m. because that is when the associated press called pennsylvania for donald trump. >> yeah. and you were in the room for both of those moments. and it was like you could hear it even through the feed. >> yeah. the people in the room -- the doors had been open since 3:00 in the afternoon. and some of the people there that early remained there. they didn't start to filter in until much later in the evening. they were -- there was an excitement in the room, but it was more of a social gathering. remember, this is not the crowds that we see on the road with donald trump. >> it's manhattan. >> if we were anywhere else we would have started hearing lock her up chants a lot sooner. we were not hearing that in this room. we did a couple points down the line. the room grew more excited as the map turned in their favor. but, again, when florida was called, i mean the room just lit up in an entire roar. and at the end of it when they weren't calling it, when fox news was not calling the race, they turned on the press and
they didn't turn on nbc and cnn and msnbc, they turned on fox news. and they looked at carl cameron standing right next to me saying why aren't you calling it? what are you trying it hide? so even though they were winning there was a sense that the media was out to get them, even fox news. >> and then, andrea, you were in the other room, right? >> oh, gosh. >> the complete opposite, right? the emotional opposite from what we saw from the trump campaign. >> it went from a high and they had the balloon drop. the balloon drop. >> the confetti cannons were there. >> there was none of that at the new york hilton, let's just be clear. >> the confetti cannons were little pieces of confetti shaped like the shards of glass, the shattered glass ceiling. it was a production. i have never seen anything quite like this. and of course the glass ceiling at the ravits center. >> is that why she didn't give her concession speech there?
>> no, i think she was not ready. >> did she have a concession speech beforehand? >> she had. but this one was different. this was rewritten because the grace and the sense of history and constitutional authority that was in her remarks today she said donald trump is our president. we owe him an open mind and a chance to lead. then she gently said, and we will continue our work on behalf of minorities and those lgbt rights and all the rest. so she laid out the markers of the values that she said this group, her followers, should continue to work for. that the fight was not done. but it was as graceful and gracious as anything i'd ever heard. and having seen her do this on june 6th, 2008, to barack obama, which was a rivalry but nothing like the toxic contest that this was with him saying she's a
criminal, she belongs in jail, she'll be indicted. i mean, all of the rhetoric from the platform. and of his supporters that he encouraged, and the fact she could get past that is pretty remarkable. and barack obama. the toxic nature of that relationship. >> and yet the tone that we saw from president obama similar to the tone we saw from hillary clinton today. let's play a little bit of that and then we'll talk about it with kaci on the other side. >> that's the way politics works sometimes. we try really hard to persuade people that we're right. and then people vote. and then if we lose, we learn from our mistakes, we do some reflection, we lick our wounds, we brush ourselves off. we get back in the arena. we go at it. >> so i open the floor to andrea, chris, is somebody going to get -- on the democratic side, i imagine there were
probably recriminations at this point, are there? is somebody going to get thrown under the bus? >> there are already the blame game last night they're pointing fingers. >> wlo are they pointing at? >> they're talking about why was our polling wrong. i can't imagine that. the loyalty, the dedication, i saw people, senior staff, they were cheering when jake sullivan and, you know, robbie mook and john podesta walked in, but the personal staff, the close staff we've been flying for all of these months with hillary clinton, their eyes were rimmed red. the secret service detail had red eyes. i don't know if it's that they've been on the plane so much that -- >> lack of sleep, right. >> but i got to tell you everyone was sobbing in that room and had been crying all night. and there's a sense she just turned 69 and there's a sense that this was her last shot and that the party will turn to a different generation. i think she knows that as well. it's not often that you get a second chance. she had hers. and the negativity was just too
profound. and also one more thing, the media we on the east coast and, you know, the so-called conventional wisdom and all of that and certainly pollsters and certainly the democratic party ignored the anger of white working class people in the middle of our country and in our neighborhoods. and the people that we saw in pennsylvania and in west virginia and elsewhere. just did not tune in to the real thirst for change. >> and katy, you spoke about this a little bit on our sort of shot we always do in the mornings, this idea of his supporters being firmly in his corner this entire campaign. and for me one of the more striking moments was after the "access hollywood" video came out, the audio came out, and then i think it was a next day in a rally saw and there were women with signs donald trump can grab me by -- an arrow.
there were signs we saw that from the beginning. >> you need to go back to last year. >> john mccain. >> yes. this is a moment we should have seen coming and should have been an indicator for us for the entire campaign. when donald trump came out and called john mccain not a war hero, a man who was tortured in a prison camp, a man who's been revered in the military, when he said he was not a war hero, and he didn't face any consequences for it in the polls, we should have known that there was very -- >> from republican primary voters no less. >> from republican primary voters who are always very sensitive to military matters and the respect that people should give our veterans, when republican primary voters did not fault him for that, and instead exalted him for it, his numbers rose in the polls. when that happened, that should have been a very good indication that it didn't necessarily -- it didn't matter what happened in the rest of this campaign because they believed in him as a person as somebody who will shatter -- pardon the pun or the
reference, their glass ceiling. >> in lack of repudiation from the republican party too, chris, i want to talk to you a little about the transition because one of the things we heard president obama say at the speech you watched, which is by the way staffers, about 100 of them lined up behind the press crying as you reported last hour on andrea's show. he talked about the handoff, right? between former president george w. bush to president obama, a handoff that was really widely praised as being one of the more successful ones. and that seems to be informing the president's transition moving forward to president-elect trump. >> yeah, he started right away this morning. i'm told he had a series of meetings with small groups of staff saying many of the same things you heard him say, you know, we have to move forward. the reality of it is and andrea knows this well, she's been around transitions before, if you are hillary clinton's staff, you're kind of left alone with those questions. you know, what happened? what could we have done differently? and the sadness that they feel.
but if you are here at the white house or you're a donald trump staff, you have about 30 seconds to breathe. and then you have to go back to work, right? because this transition is already underway. there actually is something, hallie called the center for presidential transition, they coordinate both sides of this. one of the things that they recommend is that within by thanksgiving and we're talking two weeks from now that the trump campaign already have their to be 50 appointments, cabinet appointments ready to go. they have to start that process. so they're going to be incredibly busy. as the president imparted to his staff today, there is still work that they have to do, very real work that he wants them to do. and so there's not a lot of time necessarily for them to either celebrate or deal with what is truly sadness here among the staff here at the white house. >> no vacation for the transition team, chris. no vacation for probably any of us. thank you.
appreciate it. we're talking about the white house but we should also talk about congress too because this was a big night for republicans. big wins, control of the senate, control of the house. up next we're taking a look at the results from some of those really key down ballot races and what it means for house speaker paul ryan. talking to the press earlier this morning. hang out. you work at ge? yeah, i do. you guys are working on some pretty big stuff over there, right? like a new language for crazy-big, world-changing machines. well, not me specifically. i work on the industrial side. so i build the world-changing machines. i get it. you can't talk because it's super high-level. no, i actually do build the machines. blink if what you're doing involves encrypted data transfer. wait, what? wowwww... wow? what wow? there is no wow.
ncht all right, gang, quick refresh of where we are right now when it comes to what is happening in washington. republicans getting essentially a three-for. controlling the house, controlling the senate and control in the white house as well. when you look at the senate, check it out. democrats pick up one senate seat, but republicans do hold the majority. and they overwhelmingly still have control of the house. house speaker paul ryan credited the president-elect for that. >> what donald trump just pulled
off is an enormous political feat. it's an enormous feat in that he heard those voices that were out there that other people weren't hearing. and he just earned a mandate. and we now just had that unified republican government. >> nbc's kelly o'donnell is joining me from wisconsin where paul ryan was. kelly, you heard him talk about a mandate, does he have one? >> that is a powerful word in politics and that means what that candidate now elected official wants they get. and it is defined by the force of the vote. and with the kind of upset victory the margin of victory even though there is a popular vote difference, donald trump has done something that was so unexpected that the force of that gives him a mandate. partnered with republicans in congress on the house and the senate side. it's easier to carry out such a mandate, divided government makes that much tougher. so paul ryan, who we know had been critical of donald trump in sort of moments of time during the campaign season when something cried out for an
elected official to sort of chastise or criticize or try to shape donald trump's rhetoric, now fully embracing him saying that it is in part because of donald trump's understanding of the electorate and the work that he did that the majorities in congress for republicans are strengthened. so paul ryan is ready to get to work with donald trump, the president-elect, and he plans to meet with him soon. they're working on getting their schedules together and to try to plot out what will be those first legislative steps that they could take together, hallie. >> as we talk about control of the senate, kelly, quickly, where do we stand on new hampshire? what's going on there? >> it has not been officially called, but governor maggie hassan who is the democrat, current governor, has declared herself the winner and pledges that she as a democrat could work with president-elect donald trump. kelly ayotte, the incumbent republican senator is saying she will wait for the official tally from the new hampshire secretary of state. we don't have that yet. we always knew this was one of the tightest and it lived up to
that reputation, too close to call. >> kelly o'donnell, can't wait to see you back in washington. road warrior maybe finally getting off the road. thanks, kel. russian president vladimir putin coming up in just a bit congratulating donald trump via telegram by the way on his historic win last night. up next, we're going to whip around the world to get some reaction to the election with folks internationally think about president-elect trump. our mission is to produce programs and online content for african women as they try to build their businesses and careers. my name is yasmin belo-osagie and i'm a co-founder at she leads africa. i definitely could not do my job without technology. this lenovo yoga, you can configure it in so many different ways, it feels like a much more robust computer than the old mac that i used to use. i actually, i do yoga like off my computer and it works really well. and there's something about it that feels really cool. i feel like i'm in the future.
let's head back to the white house and listen in to press secretary josh earnest now reacting to the news of president-elect donald trump. >> -- in a way that benefits the american middle class and not just those at the top. that's a difficult challenge that any president would have to face and certainly president-elect trump will have to determine the best path for confronting that. either president would inherit a country that has some deep and passionate political
differences. and what will president-elect trump do to unite the country? it won't be easy. we know that's for sure. we do know he can count on the support of president obama and secretary clinton both who in the last couple of hours have pledged their support to him as he works to do that. either president -- either secretary clinton or mr. trump would have face d a deeply divided congress that appears totally dysfunctional, or at least it has appeared totally dysfunctional in the last two years. and it's difficult to know, it's difficult to see how that's going to change. and they'll have to navigate. president-elect trump and his team will have to figure out how to navigate that situation. and it won't be easy either. so i guess the point is it's too early to tell exactly what the impact will be.
there will be an impact, but we knew there would be regardless of the outcome of the race. and there certainly were some priorities where secretary clinton didn't agree with president obama. and in a different scenario she would be -- you know, you'd be asking me the same question about some of those policy priorities too. you know, what's true is that the president-elect has some difficult questions to answer. and some big challenges to tackle. and it's why it's so important for there to be a smooth and effective, efficient transition from president obama's presidency to the trump presidency. because as americans we're rooting for the success of our president in leading and uniting the country. >> are there anymore details that you can share about the phone call between the president and the president-elect?
how long they spoke, did they get into any issues of substance or purely just congratulations on your victory? >> my understanding is it was not a lengthy call. it did take place very, very late last night. and based on the fact that there was a discussion about meeting in person on thursday, you know, the specifics of any sort of policy discussions will be left until then. >> like less than a minute, couple minutes? >> i don't know with a lot of precision exactly what the timing was. if there's more details about that that we can provide, we'll do so. >> thanks. >> okay. jeff. >> josh, on the policy differences. >> uh-huh. >> is there anything that the white house or your administration will do in the closing months to shore up priorities on policy areas like affordable care act, climate change, the iran deal, all of which now president-elect trump called into question during his campaign? >> uh-huh. well, let me start by saying
president obama will remain in office and will be the president of the united states until january 20th. and we will pursue policies accordingly, including the kinds of priorities that you have just enumerated. what's also true is that the president-elect in the context of a smooth and effective transition will have an opportunity to get briefed by members of president obama's team and actually have a conversation with president obama himself about some of these priorities. and i'm not going to speak for him or predict exactly what sort of policy decisions he's going to make. and he's pretty explicit on the campaign trail, but part of a smooth transition is ensuring that they have the latest available information about the status of these policies.
and that's something that our administration is committed to providing. >> aside from providing that information, is there anything that the administration will do to sort of put up a firewall to maintain some of these programs in place against what will probably be a repeal in obamacare case or climate change or -- >> you know, jeff, our position on all those issues is well known, is something we've reviewed in here at some length. i'll spare you most of that. but i think what i -- the way that i'd respond to that is there's no specific thing that i have in mind that we're going to do differently now. our plan all along was to ensure the successful implementation of those and other priorities. and we're going to be committed to doing everything we can to ensure the success of those
polici policies. -- a strong case that people should go to healthcare.gov, consider the options that are available to them and sign up for health care. and the vast majority of people who do will be able to purchase health insurance for $75 a month or less. that is a policy priority that benefits the american people enormously since the affordable care act went into effect 20 million americans got access to health care. and, you know, we want to make sure as many americans as possible understand the opportunity that's available to them. the president-elect when he enters office will have his own opportunity to set the course of health care policy in this country in a way that he sees fit. it's going to require some
cooperation with congress. and that won't be easy. but there's a lot at stake. and, you know, republicans in the congress have voted 50 times to repeal the affordable care act, and each time they did that they were voting to take health care away from 22 million americans, they were voting to strip critically important consumer protections from people that prevent them from being discriminated against because they have a preexisting condition or paying more for health insurance just because they are women. those are the kinds of protections that don't just benefit the millions of americans who got health care since the affordable care act went into effect, but the 150 million americans that get access to health care through their employer. so, you know, these are the kinds of decisions that the incoming administration and the incoming congress will be challenged to make. >> how do you reassure foreign allies, particularly on issues like the climate change deal, paris agreement, or the iran
deal, that these things will continue when the person succeeding president obama said they wouldn't -- >> okay, that is white house press secretary josh earnest. you heard him weighing in just a bit there on the news of president-elect donald trump's essentially day one of the transition, the transition beginning right now, earnest saying that essentially it won't be easy for trump to unite the country. you heard him talking about the affordable care act and saying that there are some difficult questions that donald trump will have to answer. it's not just folks in washington and around the country who are keeping an eye on the developments unfolding today, tomorrow, the next day. it's people all around the world who are putting their eyes on the united states, who are looking at the white house, who are looking to see what the implications are going to be of a donald trump presidency. check out these headlines from all around the world. global papers calling the upset shocking, this while world leaders are congratulating the u.s. and president-elect. joining me now is nbc's keir
simmons in london. you've been talking to people there, what's their mood and reaction? >> you know, hallie, it's evening here, so folks much of the world have had the full day to digest this and people still are trying to come to terms with it. show you the front page here of the local london paper, trump triumph shocks the world. that is nothing compared with some other newspapers around the world. in australia, w-t-f, i'm not going to translate that on camera, in canada, omg, in spain, god forgive america. hallie, we are outside a barbershop here, it's busy. we can step inside and talk to some folks to find out how people are feeling about the decision that america has made. one word. president donald trump, your thoughts, my friend. >> probably chaotic. >> chaotic. >> yeah, doesn't really sit right with me.
like i don't think it's a politics thing. >> you don't think it's a positive thing. people are just trying to make sense of this, hallie. i guess one of the effects of events like this is in a barbershop like this you end up talking about geopolitics, what does this mean for syria, yemen, iran, china, there are so many questions. the underlying point, we just don't know what a president donald trump is going to mean for the world. >> keir simmons there in london as we take a look at donald trump and his family taking the stage from last night. i want to go now to nbc's lucy cavanaugh in moscow, the russia story is going to be one driving a lot of the foreign policy discussion for months to come. what can you tell us about what's happening where you are? >> hallie, to give you a sense of the mood here, when the u.s. election result was announced in the russian parliament today, the room exploded in to claps and cheers. it's not just putin congratulating trump. the people that we've spoken to on the street, a lot of them are indifferent, especially the
younger generation that doesn't really watch state-controlled television. but what we heard over and over again from many russians is that they thought now finally u.s.-russian relations will improve. they see donald trump as a representative of peace, as a peace candidate, now president-elect. and that is because the point of view here is that the united states is somehow seen as a danger to russia, especially clinton in their mind's eye. this is a message reinforced on state channels over and over again. they think america is trying to ferment regime change under the guise of democracy. donald trump meanwhile has not publicly expressed any concern about russia. he seems to be perfectly content based on public statements so far to let russia do what it wants in areas that it's concerned with like syria and ukrai ukraine. and here that's seen as a good thing. hallie. >> lucy, thank you very much. appreciate it. joining us live from moscow. donald trump defying pollsters' predictions with his big win last night.
and now he's defying wall street's predictions of a big selloff today right after his election. you're taking a look at a live picture right here the new york stock exchange big board, the dow up 170. up next for us, we're going to talk about what trump's election means for the stock market's future. stick around. ot what he was dreaming about for the holidays. before his mom earned 1% cash back everywhere, every time. [ dinosaur growls ] and his dad earned 2% back at grocery stores and wholesale clubs. yeah! even before they earned 3% back on gas. danny's parents used their bankamericard cash rewards credit card to give him the best day ever. that's the joy of rewarding connections. learn more at bankofamerica.com/getcashback.
the search for relief often leads here.s, introducing drug-free aleve direct therapy. a high intensity tens device that uses technology once only in doctors' offices. for deep penetrating relief at the source. new aleve direct therapy. let's talk business news. national and international markets up today after some global markets plunged more than 800 points last night. nbc's on the floor of the new york stock exchange with some new reporting from the floor. so, jo lynn, talk to us a little bit. when hillary clinton delivered that concession speech that we all watched live here, there was an interesting reaction from traders. >> that's right, hallie. first of all, i want to tell you where the markets are right now. we are up a whopping 185 points. we've been holding steady even though there was overnight voelt, lots of trading volume in the dow futures were actually down as much as 800 points.
but today when hillary clinton and tim kaine took that stage in new york city to concede the election, there was audible booing across the floor among traders here. a lot of traders supporting donald trump. they're curious to see what his new economic policies will bring. they see potentially some smaller government, more efficient government. they also hope that some of these trade deals could be rolled back. they could lead to a better trading economy for investors in businesses here in the united states, smaller government also on the minds of a lot of these traders. so it's an interesting vibe right now, but we do see a short-term boost to the dow jones right now up about 180 points. we do expect that to hold through the closing bell, hallie. >> joling kent thank you very much from the new york stock exchange. i'm joined now by nbc's al ali velshi. >> they're great guys, but it's knee-jerk reaction.
republicans are better than democrats for business, as far as they're concerned. history doesn't bear that out by the way. historically democratic presidencies have done well, particularly when there's a republican house. but the bottom line is for the reasons jo ling says, less regulation, freer trade, that sort of thing happens. every time i'd be on tv they'd say drain the swamp. about 12 hours ago. >> we were sitting together, upstairs talking about the dow being down. >> we were tired and i wanted you to see on my phone that it was indicating that the open -- i said if the market opened -- >> you weren't tired, fact check. >> just wanted to make sure, we were fact checking. we indicated at that point the dow would open 700 points lower. at one point it was 800 points lower, this morning at 9:30 a.m. the dow signalled it would be 200 points lower, the bell rang and the market was up. >> why? >> this is a puzzling thing. there are technicalities that aren't worth getting into, but
in 20 years of covering this i've never seen that happen. i've never ever seen the indications but then again this is 24 hours of things we weren't expecting to happen. >> is it the uncertainty factor being resolved? was it the fact at least there's no murkiness in who is going to lead us. >> 12 hours ago when we talked the japanese market was selling off because people didn't know donald trump was going to win. the first thing you do as an invest dor don't know what's going on, sell really fast. by this morning american companies understand some will do well, some will do poorly and they were buying some and selling some. it was a smarter market. traders went in much earlier than normal. one went by this morning at 5:00 on air to talk to me about it because they knew there was money to be made in here. it can't be all bad for the market that either hillary clinton or donald trump were elected. so what you saw is some cherry picking, some bargain hunting. that's what's going on in the market. >> very quickly the economist posted a blog post talking about donald trump's impact on the fed predicting maybe a recession. are we headed for one?
>> the impb e issue is the fed is independent of the government. donald trump has been very critical of janet yellen and this fed's actions particularly in keeping interest rates low. so will he impose some pressure on the fed? will he try and get them to raise interest rates before they're ready to do so? the economist warning that if you raise interest rates prematurely in this economy you may trigger a recession. that's the concern. i will tell you though that mortgage rates are priced in the bond market. the bond market reacts to the price of the dollar. the dollar has weakened against major currencies, the interest rates have risen today and that means your mortgage is more expensive today if you are on a variable rate mortgage or you are going to get a new mortgage today it's more expensive today than it was yesterday. >> ali velshi, dropping some knowledge. thank you, my friend. we've got lots more to talk about as we check out the voters reactions in key battleground states of florida, pennsylvania, pushing donald trump to victory. up next we're going to hear from folks who voted for both candidates in those swing states and how they're feeling the day after.
all right. remember at the top of the hour, about 45 minutes ago, we talked about two key questions for today. number one, what happened. and number two, what's next. right now we're going to talk about what's next in the states where it all happened. the battlegrounds of florida, the battleground of pennsylvania as well, that's where we find gabe gutierrez and jacob soebroff. gabe, you've been talking to members of the hispanic community in miami. what happened there? this was one of the story lines we saw emerging was the turnout levels from the latino community. >> definitely, hallie. good afternoon. here at versailles restaurant here in little havana, the famed restaurant where members of the cuban american community have long gathered for discussion about politics that was much needed after a long night yesterday. and overnight we actually saw a large gathering of trump supporters here at this restaurant, they were actually popping champagne and
celebrating this overnight. now, it's clear that this is not a monolithic voting bloc. now, even though there was that high surge of early hispanic vote yet what ended up happening was is that trump ended up carrying more of the hispanic vote than romney did back in 2012. however, we've also spoken with other members of the hispanic community, perhaps not of the cuban american community, who were very worried, very fearful about what could happen during a trump presidency. they have questions about deportation. they have questions about what the wall could mean. we spoke with one woman who is an undocumented immigrant who came here to this country 16 years ago with her two children. take a listen to what she had to say. >> i think it's very sad for us. i'm scared because he didn't want unity for all the immigrants is very important because our life are playing in this election. i amen immigrant. my kids, they have -- but they
don't have any document for go to my country. >> and here among the cuban american community in miami there are also plenty of questions about what a trump presidency will mean for relations with cuba. trump as you know, hallie, has threatened to roll back the diplomatic relations, the thaw on diplomatic relations that started under the obama administration, hallie. >> gabe gutierrez in miami. he will be overnight shipping us some -- thank you very much. pennsylvania a battleground state up until last night where donald trump won just by one point though. my fellow road warrior, jacob, you're in a more rural part of the state, right? i want to get a sense from you about what voters are talking about there kind of the day after as they're waking up to this news. and i see you're with a lovely family maybe a diner. am i guessing correctly? >> i've hijacked their lunch, hallie, i feel bad about that. we're in wyoming county. wyoming county went for hillary clinton -- excuse me, for donald trump last night. but hillary clinton has a very special connection to this
place. she grew up spending many of her childhood summers here on the lake. and we just happened to be eating here and this awesome family came in wearing their trump gear from last night or did you put it on this morning? >> on today again to show my support. >> okay, cool. did you expect what happened here to happen last night? >> well, we were surprised what happened last night. of course we all hoped for that to happen, but you never know what the general population's going to think. we had a lot of support here in county and we hoped for the sbes. >> this is my second visit to lake winola, you see trump signs everywhere you go. what's the reason for that? donald trump has attracted so much support up here in the childhood home of hillary clinton? >> i think it's just the farmers wanting a better america for our children and for the future. i mean, we need affordable food, health care and if we want hillary's plan, that wouldn't be happening. >> so with the president-elect donald trump, evidently there was a lot of people rooting for that up here. and i heard there was record
turnout. you guys said a lot of people came out and voted yesterday. is that the sense you got? >> yeah, very much so. a lot of people said it was their first time, you know, being 30 some years old, a lot of people said it was their first time out voting. and they just wanted to do their part. >> there you go. and that do their part. >> reporter: that's what they did up here from wyoming. donald trump won this county and he turned it red and red it is. back to you. >> thank you, coming up next, we got the question where everybody is asking today. how did the polls heading into the election be so off on where the race stood. lets talk with mark murray, coming up. geico has a long history of great savings and great service. over seventy-five years. wait. seventy-five years? that is great. speaking of great, check out these hot riffs. you like smash mouth?

not priedicting donald trump's strengths. joining me is mark murray. >> i want to talk about this interesting tweet. roe reporters cannot and should not rely on antidotes to judge this race. the data says they're not going to turn out. >> the data is really important because you need to have the data to go on along with the antidotes. >> with with the national polls had hillary clinton up to about three or four points. probably once all the full votes in from california, she will have a 1% national lead. the national polls were not all that wrong as we saw in places of florida and north carolina. donald trump won by a narrow margin in both states. what was really off was the
polling in pennsylvania and wisconsin and minnesota, all of it ended up being so competitive than anyone ever thought when we did our maps. well, it is going to be hard for him because pennsylvania, hillary clinton has been ahead and wisconsin, the big supply was the blue firewall did not hold and the data did not show that. >> the last couple of months when trump started talking about a rigged system. something we hear from a lot of people that we do not buy the poll and we do not believe the polls. i want to play what was said earlier today. >> every pollster except two of three got this totally wrong because of their own closed mindedness and bigotry. >> if he's directed of that main
tropical storm hermi mainstream polling -- what we saw last night was a black swan huge surprise. the republican polling number did not get to what donald trump achieved last night. >> some folks already thought how do you get people to believe many polling again? >> that's a hard thing. everyone who believes in numbers and polling and i have been covering presidential election going back to 200s. the numbers have been stable and made sense. we are in a situation where so many people are on their cell phones or not. are we doing a better job reaching it. i think there has to be a jesus moment for a lot of people in the polling and the number communities on what we do to get those numbers right. >> that begins today. >> or tomorrow. >> appreciate you being with us. we have a lot more coming up of this day one of the transition of president elect trump, the next hour, we are expected to hear from mitch mcconnell, stick around.
