7:01 am
>> announcer: from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie, live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning, everyone. welcome to "today" on a monday morning. i was thinking that i remember sitting on the show one morning and looking at you and saying, we have a year to go before the election. and that seems like 20 years ago. >> i makes. here we are, the eve of the election. we are getting ready here the a nbc news for decision night in america. it is democracy plaza. tomorrow night it will be lit up with a map of the united states and we'll see which ones go red, which ones go blue. let's get right to the state of the race. 24 hours to go, and it is tightening at the moment it matters most. our latest nbc news/survey monkey tracking poll shows
7:02 am
a similar tracking poll from abc and the washington h"washington clinton's lead at just five points. a university of new hampshire survey center poll has clinton up by 11 points in that state, while in ohio, new columbus dispatch poll shows trump with a one-point advantage. we've got some new numbers on the all-important early voting. according to data provided to us by target smart, more than 42 million people have already cast their ballots, including record florida, north carolina and nevada. in a moment, we're going to be talking to the campaign managers from both sides. but let's begin our decision 2016 coverage on the eve of the election with nbc's anticipated ya mitchell. andrea, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. the 2016 campaign now again turned upside down by fbi director james comey. this time deciding that those hillary clinton e-mails on anthony weiner's laptop were either all duplicates or not
7:03 am
the question now is though, is it too late to undo the political damage. >> reporter: hillary clinton in new hampshire late sunday ignoring the fbi's letter clearing her, the campaign deciding that any mention of the e-mail controversy could turn off late deciding swing voters. >> love trumps hate! let's go vote, new hampshire! >> reporter: word of comey's decision coming as clinton was arriving in cleveland sunday afternoon. her aides elated, seen reading the director's letter o comey writing, "based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in july with respect to secretary clinton." her running mate, tim kaine, reacting. >> not surprised. it sounds like the fbi director's conclusion is as we thought it would be. >> reporter: clinton now trying to remain the momentum she lost when the e-mail controversy eru erupt erupted. cavaliers star lebron james.
7:04 am
future of our world. >> are you ready to vote? >> reporter: and later the gold star father, kazir khan -- >> well, thankfully, mr. trump, this isn't your america. >> reporter: but can the e-mail damage be undone? with polls opening just 24 hours from now, the clinton campaign worries the good news may not catch up to the bad news of comey's first letter ten days ago. and today on the last full day of campaigning, cnt battleground states, including an all-star rally, with both obamas, her husband, bruce springsteen and john bon jovi, then a final rally in north carolina. clinton determined to leave no vote on the table. matt and savannah? >> andrea mitchell, thank you. meanwhile, donald trump weighing in on the fbi's announcement while hitting as many states as he can squeeze in
7:05 am
nbc national correspondent peter alexander is in sarasota, florida for us this morning. hi, peter, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. we've been traveling with donald trump for the final hours of this campaign. he ended his weekend here in sarasota at 3:30 this morning. he'll take the stage a short time from now. this is the 510th and final day of his campaign. as for the fbi's investigation into hillary clinton's e-mails, donald trump insists it was wrapped up prematurely. he says that the system is rigged. >> reporter: donald trump racing to the finish line, wrapping up early this morning in virginia, his fifth state of the day. >> we'll call this the midnight special speech. >> reporter: trump's casting doubt on the fbi's concluding its investigation of hillary clinton's e-mails. >> you can't review 650,000 e-mails in eight days. you can't do it, folks. >> reporter: urging voters to provide the final verdict
7:06 am
the fbi knows it. the people know it. and now it's up to the american people to deliver justice at the ballot box on november 8th. >> reporter: trump's aides insist the november surprise will have no impact on his campaign. a senior trump aide telling nbc news the latest e-mail controversy has already significantly damaged clinton's campaign and motivated once reluctant suburban republicans to back trump. capping a whirlwind weekend, trump is separate battlegrounds, even targeting deep blue states like minnesota and michigan that haven't gone republican in decades. team trump is particularly confident about michigan. the latest poll giving clinton a four-point lead. but aides insist it is a dead heat. trump didn't looking back, even after a chaotic scene in reno, nevada saturday. rushed offstage by secret service. the spark, a scuffle in the front rows, someone yelling "guns." the crowd turned on a protester.
7:07 am
returned to the podium. again, this morning donald trump's aides are projecting confidence about that state of michigan circling it on the map. it is where he will end his day today. he starts it here in sarasota, florida, goes to raleigh, north carolina, then scranton, pennsylvania. finally, manchester, new hampshire, before flying out to grand rapids, michigan. matt and savannah? back to you. >> peter alexander, thank you. robby mook is hillary clinton's campaign headquarters in brooklyn. >> good morning. >> about ten or so days ago when director comey released that first letter to congress saying that there were some new e-mails the fbi wanted to look into on anthony weiner's laptop and they may be pertinent to the investigation, secretary clinton had a lot to say about it. among the things she said, she thought the director's actions were unprecedented and deeply troubling. now yesterday comey comes out with another letter saying, never mind, nothing to see here,
7:08 am
from secretary clinton on the subject. why? >> well, what she also said in her statement previously was that they weren't going to find anything new here. that's what director comey said. we're in the final stretches of this election. secretary clinton wants to be out there explaining her vision for where she wants to take this country. she wants to celebrate and lift up the historic voter turnout we're seeing across the country. >> but after such strong words for director comey ten days ago, is the idea now that any menti campaign rally or in the headlines is simply a taboo? >> i just think americans have heard a lot about this. the director resolved this yesterday. that's what we asked him to do, to get the information out there. and bring it to a close. and so we're going to move on and we want to talk about the voters and their lives. that's what this election should be about. >> a bit of a footnote and really a sign of the times when it comes to this election season, robby. the campaign director for
7:09 am
remember if you see a whopper of a wikileaks in the next two days, it's probably a fake." does that mean you guys are sitting there holding your breath over the next 24 hours worried about some other drop of information? >> you know, we're not. we're really focused on turning out our supporters. just this weekend we made 8.1 million phone calls. we knocked on 7.2 million doors. that ground game we worked so hard to build is in full action right now. and we're seein turnout. latino and asian-american turnout has doubled in north carolina and florida. and one-third -- one-third of the asian-american and latino voters that are turning out in florida didn't vote in 2014 and 2012. that doesn't happen by accident. it is the work that our team did to register hundreds of thousands of voters and now all the work that our volunteers are doing to remind people to go vote. >> and yet, robby, we see secretary clinton in michigan
7:10 am
to colorado. these are blue states. does that signal jitters on the campaign's part, perhaps the deep blue wall is not as strong as you thought? >> well, we're particularly focused these last few days on states that vote predominantly on election day. we were very focused on north carolina, florida, nevada who have early voting. now new hampshire, michigan, pennsylvania, even ohio, states where much more than half of the vote will be coming in mo prepared for either outcome tomorrow? >> you know, we're prepared for everything. but for the next 24, 48 hours, we are really focused on turning our supporters out to vote. i'm proud to announce secretary clinton will be airing an ad this reasoning, a two-minute ad with secretary clan making her closing argument to the voters. >>. clinton campaign manager robby
7:11 am
the trump campaign. kel kellyanne conway is trump's campaign manager. >> good morning. >> donald trump made the most of the comey letter in late october when it came out stating there would be new e-mails particularly pertinent to the investigation that he was going to look at. he said that they were classified. i think a quote was he said those have to be beyond classified. he said she was guilty. he said there was an indictment coming. can we expect him now in light of what comey has now said to say i'd like to correct the questions, as we now. >> that's true. but his assertions have proven to be false. >> well, many people made those assertions because they kept saying, right, left and center, why in the world would you re-open or extend this investigation if you didn't have something big. even the democrats were saying that. what donald trump did not do which hillary clinton and others on the democratic side did do was viciously attack jim comey who just thought he was doing his job. first he's a hero in july, now he's the enemy -- >> whoa, let me stop you there for a second. what he said in the first place
7:12 am
comey had guts, he did the right thing and he had confidence in the fbi. now after yesterday's letter, the fbi rolled over, they let clinton off, they should be ashamed of themselves. >> why re-open an investigation if there's no there there. that's something that both sides were asking. and frankly, the investigation has been a hot mess from the beginning. he said i won't prosecute her. then went on to list the whole litany of illegalities -- >> but he didn't attack comey ten days ago. he saved that for yesterday. about is the very corrupt system, the same corrupt system that's shipped our jobs and welfare overseas. it is one that's given us very bad trade deals. it is one that allows people to pour over the borders and take our jobs. >> i would say, both campaigns do this. when they like what comey does, he is a man of great integrity. when they don't like the result, he should be ashamed of himself. would you acknowledge that neither campaign exactly has clean hands when it comes to
7:13 am
last week, savannah, even the president of the united states ended up saying jim comey should not be "interfering in the election." that's a pretty serious charge. if jim comey and the fbi were under pressure to re-open the investigation based on new evidence they thought they had, then that's why he acted that way. but -- >> trump said the fbi has credibility. >> but to the voters today and tomorrow what they see is somebody who represents change and taking things in a new direction. they see somebody who is an illustration of the corrupt system they don't like in for donald trump to have any chance of winning you must flip one of those traditionally blue states. >> and we will. >> if you look at the travel plans of secretary clinton, it seems like they think it might be michigan. will you win michigan? >> we will win michigan. and the great resonant arguments that donald trump is making to the voters in, say, pennsylvania and ohio, bro teprotecting the workers and coal miners that hillary clinton talked about putting out of work.
7:14 am
particularly in pennsylvania. we feel really good about the closing polls in the upper midwest states in the last couple days -- last couple weeks that have been elusive to republican presidential candidates which keep on electing republicans state wide to be their chief executives and united states senators. we also look at the rocky mountain states, colorado, maybe dipping into nevada and new mexico. >> the race has tightened and a lot of people are saying donald trump has been the most disciplined candidate possible in the lt "the new york times" reports that his campaign staff actually rested his twitter account from him basically saying you're not going to tweet for yourself anymore. is that true? >> no, that's not true. i think donald trump is at his very best when he is talking about the issues. one of the great arguments he's making to the american people in the last couple weeks, if you don't like obamacare premiums rising in a state like arizona, 1 16%, over 50% in the key state of pennsylvania, then i have a
7:15 am
obamacare argument and hillary clinton deciding to go super low in her closing arguments, i'm actually personally astonished that she would make everything about personal obstruction, negative insults. >> it is a little late for either campaign to claim the high ground. >> he's out there projecting his vision. >> one more >> thanks for having me. yes. >> appreciate it. steve kornacki over at the board. he's got more on the 270 electoral votes that are needed. how is it looking it this morning with 24 hours to go? >> this campaign is ending in sort of an unlikely place. the rustbelt. i don't think at the start of the campaign we thought that's where both candidates would be finishing. why are they finishing there? you can see the state of play and you can see the hole donald trump's in. these grey states are what we've
7:16 am
states, with the battleground states. you lose one of these, she's over 270. the trump campaign has some particularly discouraging news out of nevada. if clinton just wins that with the tradition al battleground, she's over 270. you have a flip a state from blue to red if you're trump. you look to states that figure your demographic profile, rural populations, working class populations, probably not a large latino population given the indications we are seeing about latino he was in minnesota. he's in michigan today. pennsylvania. wants to finish in these three states. what do they see when they look in those states? they see like the upper peninsula, the rural parts of northern michigan. mccomb county outside drought. they see like the iron range in minnesota. they see the rural sort of interior pennsylvania. those are the opportunities they see. make no mistake about it, this is a long shot move by the trump campaign. there's been grey states disappear. they need to make something else happen.
7:17 am
abbreviations of states? steve kornacki. >> next he'll wow us with the state capitals. >> and zip codes. >> chuck and nicolle are here as well. >> i'm surrounded by geeks. >> what's the final word? he gives the letter at the end of october. now the sort of clean bill of health as of yesterday. going back to his original decision not to prosecute. where does this land in terms of the effects? >> the effect is immeasurable because it was it was one on the polls. it really halted her growth. the focus had been on her prosecuting the case against donald trump. that shifted the focus. it also changed donald trump as a candidate. the very same article that you were asking kellyanne about has some really rich details for political junkies out there. it is in the "new york times." it is an article that anyone who cares about what goes on behind the scenes should read because it talks about how donald trump's psyche changed.
7:18 am
that made him think he could win this thing. the impact is immeasurable because it changed the race we saw, of course tightening the polls, and it also changed the candidate by getting him on message. >> do we have any more on how the e-mails affected her campaign that we got crickets after yesterday. >> because there is no good news e-mail headline. it is just sort of, okay, it is not damaging. i think at the end of the day we're going to lookac this may have cost the democratic party one or two senate seats. what this also did down the ballot to galvanize republicans to basically vote like republicans again. you cannot -- we may look at the makeup of the senate and say, a comey effect. >> i'm old enough to remember when early voting didn't exist. it was absentee balloting and you had to have an excuse. early voting is huge now. i think we said like 40 million people have already voted. are there any take leaves or breadcrumbs to read in what
7:19 am
had. >> part of it is that road map we just showed you. some of the indications about turnout among latino voters, energy among latino voters. if we end up seeing that in a state like florida or nevada, that could be very, very bad news for donald trump. again, that could be part of why the donald trump campaign is looking at some of those other states. >> let pea jume just end on tur and energy. on friday we said 8 in 10 people have been left repulsed and disgusted. are these people motivated to vo? weird things about campaign. you heard kellyanne heard how they end on negative campaigns? that's what motivates them. voters are motivated by things they fear. there has also been a lot of talk about a hidden trump vote. think anecdotally there may be a lot of hillary vote, a lot of women voting differently from their spouses, a lot of women quietly pulling the lever despite of her baggage. i think there will be a lot of lessons on wednesday morning. >> thank you.
7:20 am
covered tomorrow on election day. we'll get you started right here on "today." then our special prime time coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. eastern, 4:00 pacific, and then wake up for us on wednesday morning, for those who actually go to sleep. we'll have all the election results and analysis. >> now let's get the weather from mr. roker. we've got heavy showers and thunderstorms from freeport into no new orleans. we'll be watching this today, rainfall amounts from two to three inches from getting heavier rain into oklahoma and texas as well. and what about the battleground states? weather is not all that bad throughout much of the country. but tomorrow as far as some of the toss-up states, for example, ohio looks to be the worst. showers and thunderstorms from toledo, lima, columbus. new hampshire, weather looks pretty good there. sunshine and temperatures upper 50s into the low 60s. we'll look at more toss-up

7:32 am
good morning. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. it is crazy to think that in 1912, california was actually the first state to ban marijuana. now many experts are saying if california legalizes, it could turn the tide for the rest of the country. at venice beach in california, a doctor will prescribe you a medical marijuana card for $40. but people on the boardwalk will tell you, pot is so easy to get, some don't even bother with the prescription. >> you can just come like amsterdam or something like that. >> reporter: on the ballot in california, arizona, nevada, massachusetts and maine, whether to legalize. for most states, that means six plants for personal use and allows people over 21 to people up to an ounce. >> so this is what an ounce looks like. >> this is an ounce. 28 grams. >> reporter: while in maine, voters will be asked to legalize up to 2 1/2 ounces. nationwide, polls are showing support for pot is at an all-time high.

8:34 am
still relevant and still prescient in the same ways as it is like kind of timeless. but then the actual endeavor of playing a part so -- captured so beautifully and so iconically by an absolute iconic hero of my personally was one that i had to be very thoughtful with. >> you said so relevant. so needed right now. this is unequivocally an inspirational story. after what we've just lived through for the last year, year-and-a-half, this really is going to go well with audiences. >> iop i think we've done ten shows now. yeah, it still hits people. i had friends of mine who had never seen the film. be just like this is a story. everybody that read it got teary eyed by the end of the play. >> just to make sure -- maybe there are some people who don't know the story, it is a story of a group of teenage boys at a prestigest prep school and one of their teachers is a guy named john keating who inspires them. tell me about him.

8:36 am
tarn parents can be that way but it doesn't need to be familial. it could be in your cul-de-sac or the guys that played led zeppelin or the beasty boys. you're like what is it? as long as you can keep encouraging people to sort of look beyond what they are -- their own baggage can sort of get in the way of them seeing, it is a nice gesture to offer. >> being on stage every night is going to take you away from bath time for a while. >> that's true. >> is that thing? >> i shower now. >> i don't mean you. >> oh! sorry. okay. >> talking about the baby. >> it's all right. it's all right. again, i think i've got six little boys to watch over when i'm away from him now in my class. yeah. he'll have to deal with it. >> any sense of just wishing you were at "snl" this year with this kind of -- with the riches they are devouring every week in this political season? >> no. it's been fun to watch though. they've been doing an amazing

with the holidays fastly approaching, you are probably looking for a way to up your game when it comes to your holiday table decor. good morning. congrats on the book. i think people like they sometimes get into the flower rut like you've got to do flowers and you have some different ideas. >> absolutely. oftentimes you can just gather things already in the house, you can get creative with it and you can actually put things on the table that can be good conversation starters. >> i love this first idea. you are the centerpiece. how would you do this if you were having guests? >> what i love is the idea that you would put something in the center that people really like want to talk about. oftentimes during this time of year we're gathering people who haven't seen each other so i think it is a great idea to ask your guests ahead of time, submit your favorite image from the year. submit an image from your favorite vacation, a wedding, something special. then use the frames around your house to put down the middle of the table. it is a great conversation starter and it gives everybody
8:41 am
cards, too. you don't have to use expensive frames. you can get the cheap ones or what you got around the house. is there absolutely. it is a great way to refreshen your frames. this time of year people forget because everything is digital to freshen up your frames. so it is a good reminder to do that. >> another super cute idea, books. not just any books. you get recommendations from your guests. >> again, ask your guests ahead of time, what's your favorite read of the year? shift the topic away fro politics to this and put some books down the middle of the table to again generate some great conversation, give everybody a reason to participate. what's really nice about this is if you want to go the extra distance, it is a great parting gift. people can take home a book that they didn't contribute. >> that's great. so a party favor. then i see these movie signs for the placards. what's the idea there? had. >> so instead of a typical place cardholder, ask everybody ahead of time, what's your favorite tv show of the year?
8:42 am
and then use those as the place card holders. it gives people a chance to kind of walk around the table beforehand, sort of figure out, a, where they're sitting, but, b, what everybody else contributed. again, it gives people a reason to generate a conversation. >> i love that that's really getting a unique conversation going. dessert as centerpiece, a beautiful idea whose time has time. >> this is from my favorite bakery, sweet henrietta's. but you can use you want. desserts are so often relegated to the end. they're tucked away in the kitchen. if you have a beautiful cake or beautiful pie, why not let that be the centerpiece? you don't have to go the extra distance of spending money on cut flowers. use your bread as a place cardholder. again, give people the thought that if i like what i'm seeing, i will save a little extra room during the meal. >> that's always a good reminder
