7:06 am
last night, huma abedin, clinton's long-time aide, stepped out in a high-profile way for the first time publicly since james comey the fbi director announced the review into her e-mails. chased down by paparazzi before a charity event in washington, d.c. >> hi, huma, how are you? >> just to highlight the tightness of this race in these final days, the clinton campaign is now announcing that president obama and first clinton for an election eve rally in philadelphia. matt and savannah, on monday night. >> peter alexander, thank you very much. let's turn to chuck todd. he's going to break down the must-win states for both campaigns. i know you have the lay of the land right there. you see two paths for donald trump. tell us about it. >> one thing to point out, right now our battleground map currently has clinton over 270. there is enough blue states here that we think she can withstand
7:07 am
he sweeps battlegrounds, give him all of those nebraska electoral votes. new hampshire short. he has to flip one of these rustbelt states. maybe it is wisconsin. that would put him over. of course a pennsylvania would put him over. but what happens if she pulls off north carolina which a lot of people think. then you see here, as you saw even with pennsylvania, we've got to flip something else. even win maybe even a colorado which we've seen. it is tough. the biggest thing for trump, he's got to figure out how to break through the big blue wall, wisconsin, pennsylvania, michigan. he's making it close in all three places but this is where that has to happen. >> that rustbelt strategy is always what they said. >> chuck, come on over and join our conversation. chuck says he has to flip a blue state. if you were scheduling him and
7:08 am
where is the best shot? >> the problem is he's not ahead in any of those states and he's not tied in any of the states with enough electoral votes to get him above 270 or to get him to 270. it is a hail mary strategy. i guess you spread the time. it is a good thing he said he doesn't need a lot of sleep and his schedule reflects that. he is in all of them. >> what about hillary clinton? what is her strategy over the next couple of days? i know it's basically get out the vote, get out the vote. but also hope for a wikileaks fr she is -- they've decided to close hard negative. as you see. every ad. they've trying to remind everybody about every negative thing trump has said, especially to african-american audiences, hispanic audiences. yesterday she brought examples of people, they would introduce her to say donald trump essentially discriminated against me. in front of an program audience, it was an program woman.
7:09 am
she brought an hispanic woman. i kind of think she ought to do something like, i know a lot of you have some trust issues with me -- but. and i don't think they're going to do that. >> we gave you homework assignments and we were asking what you thought each candidate should do if you were hired by the campaign. >> highly unlikely. >> what is your best piece of advice for the donald trump campaign? >> his mentality when he goes to these big rallies is to rt show he thinks they've waited in line for. it is generous as a politician but he into edz to shorten up that stump speech and focus like a laser. >> i think simply continue to let kellyanne keep his iphone or android. the other thing i would say, show a little bit of humility. i think there are some voters out there that want to know that he actually feels a little bit of remorse for some of the harsh things he said.
7:10 am
she's closing this way, maybe actually say the words "i'm sorry." >> i think a lot of people are saying, okay, only four days to go. but what happens after that? let's look at these numbers that may give us a strong hint of that. 8 in 10 americans say the campaign has left them disgusted or repulsed. how about these numbers? when it comes to donald trump supporters, only 6 in 10 say they'll accept the results of the election if he loses, and only 40% say they think their votes will be accurately counted. where does that leave us in the year to come? >> it leaves us in a place we've never been before. listen, all politics being very personal. i am in a family divided with trump supporters and clinton supporters. the healing i think will begin in every community and every household. but i have never seen numbers like that. i saw something that 70% of people think that the election will be rigged. that means a lot of democrats who think by foreign power and a
7:11 am
are grappling with how the actual election is being tabulated. >> can i be the schoolmarm here? you didn't do your hillary clinton homework. >> so hillary has to make sure that the turnout in the operation that obama pioneered and perfected turns out for her. that's why you see the president, mrs. obama on the trail to sort of activate that. then she has to get through a bombshell-free weekend. >> i just think, i smell a two-minute ad. that big, long closing ad, her to camera. look, she's got trust issues. you nobody -- she's not going to fix them with an ad but look the american people in the eye and say, look, i get it. i know you have some issues with me, but i promise "x." makes an ethics play. do something. she's not doing anything to actually respond to those concerns. >> long few days ahead of us,

your phone. you may use it to follow the campaigns and the candidates, but you can't actually vote with it despite new fake ads you might be seeing pop up online. it sounds too good to be true because -- it is. instead of heading to a polling place or mailing in a ballot, just text your vote instead. like this tweet recommends. encouraging hillary clinton supporters to "vote from home" by texting a number provided. problem is -- option. non-existent. though that's not stopping some from spreading the bogus rumor online. >> the internet obviously is a tremendous communications mechanism for democracy but it is also a place to amplify anything we didn't like in our democracy to begin with, which includes rumors, lies and dirty politics. >> reporter: twitter has suspended at least one user who promoted these text to vote tweets.
7:47 am
have ties to the donald trump campaign. that operative, donald stone, tells nbc he never posted the images and that he is not responsible for this people. those tweets introduced as evidence of possible voter miss chief in an ongoing legal battle between the dnc and the rnc. the clinton campaign says it's proactively monitoring issues individuals might face while voting with its social media accounts and a trump spokesperson tells nbc of the text to votewe didn't anything involving our campaign" adding their singular focus is turning out voters to support mr. trump. the backdrop to all of this, mr. trump's complaints to a rigged system calling on supporters to watch for fraud at the polls. >> this is a rigged election. >> it is a rigged system. >> it is a rigged election. >> reporter: now in the middle of all that, some pouncing with dirty tricks. so what should you do? remember, if someone asks you to vote by phone -- you can't.
7:48 am
about your polling place isn't fake. and don't provide any sensitive information about voter registration unless you're sure who you're talking to, like someone from the board of elections. the bottom line, so far voters staying savvy, staying away from voting scams. >> when it comes to the votes already cast this year we can say there's been a whole lot more hype about the threat of a rigged election than evidence that there is any problem with rigging so far. >> talk this campaign about a rigged system, a new poll shows 3 in 4 registered voters say they will probably accept the official election results as legitimate, even if the person they're voting for doesn't end up the winner. should note though, more clinton voters than trump voters say they feel that way. >> 3 in 4, but still 25% saying -- >> the opposite. >> all right. hallie, thank you very much. still ahead, michael jackson's son, prince, getting emotional during a very rare

today. 66 degrees, temperatures running a little cooler than this time yesterday, 55 in zephyrhills, 64 in bartow and a few spotty areas of fog especially in brooksville and some light haze in the broken done area. so it's above average and generally clear out of head of cold fronted that will come through later today. i just left in a 10% rain chance. but behind the front starting overnight and into tomorrow morning the breezes passes clouds. it should be pleasant. pleasant on sunday at 82. because of the time change the sun will come up an hour earlier starting sunday and all of next week. certainly not a pretty drive right here. it looks like la, any ways 275 southbound you're starting to hit the brakes.

it is a much closer race in georgia. but as he begins to chip away at some of hillary clinton's advantages in some key battlegrounds, a top trump aide this morning tells me trump is going to be going on offense over the course of this final weekend hitting ten separate states in three days. a republican analyst describing that this morning as a hail mary pass for trump. but his closing argument is clear, accusing hillary clinton of being corrupt and saying that she is simply >> honestly? she has no right to be running. you know that. no right. if she were to win, it would create an unprecedented constitutional crisis that would cripple the operations of our government. >> reporter: this morning a top trump aide tells me highlighting the fact that hillary clinton is campaigning in pennsylvania today and again on election eve that that simply demonstrates
8:04 am
that they might lose the bluest of blue states. now to my colleague, kristen welker, who is with the clinton campaign three hours away in pittsburgh. >> reporter: peter, good morning. with polls getting tighter, secretary clinton's strategy today aimed to solidify support in some of the states where she already has a lead. she starts her day here in pittsburgh, pennsylvania. she's going to talk about the economy, aiming to energize women voters, and also african-american voters who have been slow to turn out for early voti states. she's raising eyebrows with her second stop, that's michigan, a reliably blue state. some democrats asking if she's worried about losing that state. her campaign denying that, saying it is merely an attempt to solidify that important state where she suffered an upset with bernie sanders during the primary. now she appeared last night in another key battleground state with bernie sanders and superstar pharrell and she sharpened her attacks against

9:16 am
harry, you said? >> this is what i think. i know that there may be some emily post etiquette rule that contradicts my thought, but here's the technique of it. you never walk into a building in front of a woman under any circumstances. so if there is a revolving door and i'm with jill, i start the movement of the door, i let jill go in first, and then i go after her. the only time i would ever go before her in a revolving door is if i'm it might be raining, you have to see what's going on. that is the only time. but if we're going into a building together, i'll get the motion started. it is an antiquated theory to assume that a woman doesn't have the strength to push the door open. >> so you're saying you push it, then i would slide in -- >> you don't have to slide. i make sure that you have enough room. i control the motion. >> as it were. >> as it were! >> what do you say? >> i say you both go in together. >> yeah!
9:17 am
ago on the "today" show and the rule was that the man goes first. we reached out to emily post institute which you knew. they said men traditionally enter a revolving door first if it wasn't moving. but women went first if it was already in motion. this is old etiquette. based on the notion -- >> that's right. it's antiquated. that's antiquated. the man needs to get it going. then the woman goes through. unless you're going outside. you never want to have the woman >> when you are walking with your wife on the street. you're on the outside. >> on the street side. >> why are you on the street side? >> because in the old days there was stuff in the gutters and stuff. the splashing. >> in the bed, do you sleep at the side of the bed closest to the door or do you put your wife closest to the door? >> this is a case where my wife -- anything she wants. so she wants -- wherever she wants to sleep, she's cool. how about walking up the stairs? i'm always behind you. coming down the steps, i'm
9:18 am
front of you walking down but not behind you walking up. >> but if you slip and fall, i'll catch you. >> you're such a gentleman! >> as we go to our local stations for weather, don't forget, daylight savings time, fall back. set your clocks back. >> i don't get it. >> check your batteries and smok io the average for today just dropped to 80 but we're going to still hit 83 this afternoon, overnight tonight is when a cold front comes through so not necessarily the cooler 66 degrees for your overnight low. tomorrow 80 degrees, 82 on sunday. >> that's your latest weather.
