7:07 am
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 two of these rustbelts -- a wisconsin, or maybe even a colorado which we've seen. it is tough. 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 looking to try to accomplish that in the last couple of days, where is the best shot? >> the problem is he's not ahead
7:08 am
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 free weekend. >> i think there is that, but she is -- they've decided to close hard 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. in front of hispanic audience, she brought an hispanic woman.

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? 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 lot of republicans by state and local election officials.
7:11 am
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 weekend without another fbi bombshell. she sort of needs a bombshell-free weekend. >> 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, guys. thank you. cyber attacks have already played a major role in this

7:46 am
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 -- it's not an 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. in others, messages seem to come from a gop operative who used to
7:47 am
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 vote tweets -- "this didn't anything involving our campaign" adding t 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. that doesn't exist. triple check to make sure info about your polling place isn't fake.

8:36 am
comes from the mind of j.k. rowling and all of us harry potter aficionados will recognize the title of the textbook in the original harry potter movie with "the fantastic beasts and where to find them" which is one of the books the kids studies. but there was no plot. so it opens it up. don't you think? >> yeah. it was so exciting to get to read the script because nobody knew anything about it except for maybe a few actors and designers and the crew. it was really exciting to be the first people to read >> does anyone feel any amount of intimidation that the hopes and dreams of harry potter fans are resting on your collective shoulders? >> what are you talking about? >> no, you are right. we all felt like when we were making it the people behind this made all the films. so we all felt so -- they made us feel so secure while we were making it. in a sense we started promoting the film. everyone is like how's that
