it is terrible when that happens on the playground and it is absolutely unacceptable when it's done by someone with no name hiding on the internet. >> reporter: an interesting choice for melania since her husband is prolific at attacking people on twitter. tweeting in the past, jeb bush just got contact lenses and got rid of the glasses. he wants to look cool but it's far too late. 1% in nevada and did crooked hillary out sex tape and pass alicia m. become a u.s. citizen so she could use her in the debate? trump watched melania's speech from his plane and gave this review. >> she did a great job. that takes a lot of courage. >> reporter: now on that tweet of a sex tape alicia machado called that a lie and he is accused of spreading more falsehoods saying clinton committed perjury which authorities never alleged.

7:07 am
karl to talk about this more. put up our tracking poll. we said it shows a three-point lead for hillary clinton overall nationally but part of the reason it's close you're seeing a scramble in states and encouraging signs for donald trump in blue states and encouraging ones for hillary in red states. >> reporter: no question it's tightened. donald trump is still behind. hillary clinton is still the favorite in this race but the map is really gotten jumbled. look at the new polls we have out in the last 4 first of all the state of new hampshire, now at a tie. this is a state that for over a month hillary clinton looked like she had a comfortable lead. now we've had a series of polls that show that donald trump could actually win in the state of new hampshire and then if you look at traditionally red states we have first of all the state of arizona. this is one that the clinton team said they are going after. look at this, a poll that shows trump up but barely outside the

7:09 am
days, four days. is there anything any other external event you think could affect the voting or all momentum? >> as we saw last week when we were talking about hillary clinton had a rough comfortable lead was moving in and the comey announcement adjusted the race by two or three points. anything can happen in the final three days. we've seen it in elections in years past and wikileaks and everything else we have to stay tuned until monday. anything could change. it is a small but comfortable lead for hillary >> jon, what's the one state you're keeping your closest eye on? >> north carolina. north carolina is the state above all is absolutely dead even. you talk to both camps. they both think they can win and both know they could lose. >> donald trump needs to win it, jon karl, matt dowd, thanks very much. four days until the final votes and the latest on the race on sunday on "this week" and be here when the polls close tuesday night and anchor coverage all night with our political team starting at 7:00

8:13 am
person, jonbenet's mother. >> reporter: which asks the question -- >> who was patsy ramsey? tragic victim or cold-blooded killer. >> let me assure you that i did not kill jonbenet. >> reporter: in 2008 the district attorney mary lacy exonerate the 9 ramseys claiming that touch dna proved the suspect was an unknown male. but this lifetime special is now resurrecting big questions about whether patsy ramsey might have been with the ransom note found at the crime scene. one of the first detectives to arrive at the million dollar mansion that terrible december morning robert witson. >> the handwriting examiner said i need to show you something and he turned three or four pages in that notepad and at the top of the pad said mr. and mrs. and then started the letter "r." so at that point it looked like somebody had used that notepad
8:14 am
and that notepad was patsy ramsey's. >> reporter: another decorative on the case fred patterson telling lifetime -- >> there were some similarities in the randwriting between patsy's writing and the writing on the note. >> reporter: investigative journalist jeff shapiro who covered it for over a decade saying -- >> would an intruder break in and try to copy patsy's rand handwriting or is it sheer owe >> reporter: it showcases her love of theater. her chosen talent when she was a young beauty queen herself. >> patsy practiced a lot. she worked on her characters and her vocalization and accents and all of the different things to create the characters. >> reporter: the filmmakers raising the question could she have been acting all along to cover up a possible crime? >> there was a sense within the law enforcement community that
8:15 am
was someone who has a grip on great theatrics. >> now, let's remember that patsy ramsey did pass away ten years ago. we reached out to lin wood who represent the family. >> dan, you've been following this from the beginning, 20 years, part of this documentary. what do you make of this new information? >> this new information basically pokes a hole in argument that it couldn't have been patsy ramsey because there was one unidentified male person's dna both in john combafully's underwear and another spot in the long johns and that was the critically relatively new piece of evidence. the authorities did this new type of dna testing in 2007/2008 and they found what they told us publicly was a match in another
8:16 am
wearing to this unidentified male dna found in her underwear so the conclusion was, well, that must be the real killer. now we learn, well, it's not so definitive >> that's the thing. it doesn't actively implicate patsy but takes away this information that looked definitive about somebody else >> that's right. because before and when the d.a. came out in 200 and formally exonerated the ramsey family, the main argument was, look, we've got this dna which points to s learn, well, this could actually be dna from multiple people and as a result it might have been transferred or gotten there. >> do you think had we known this at the time she wouldn't have been exonerated? >> the d.a. would tell you, no. the d.a. would say it was based on the totality of the circumstances, but it does make it a little bit of a tougher argument to formally exonerate and i say that because there is still such a divide within the boulder community and among the boulder authorities about
8:17 am
involved and so i think that to exonerate someone publicly you better have it sort of clear and convincing -- they would say -- mary lacy and lin wood would say we believe it's clear and convincing. >> what do the authorities do now? it's 20 years. >> what they do is publicly claim it's still open. they publicly leave it still open and this case will never be solved. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. movie "who killed tomorrow on lifetime. the holiday shopping alert. the best days to get deals that the best days to get deals that aren't black friday. alright, did you know i was thmmy slam dunk champion? the best days to get deals that aren't black friday. really? yes, really! don't sound so surprised. let's see it! -oh you're ready. alright, here we go. let's hear the crowd. ahhhh! i go to the right. i go to the left. fake 'em out. mama go up, up, up! she did it. -again? you can't avoid gravity. but unitedhealthcare can help you avoid

one study. 20% of the population wrapped and done. that is kind of unsettling along with the idea that we're seeing ads in circulars that came out last weekend for black friday deals starting now. so do i have to shop now to get the best deals? >> black friday deals are here all month long at lowe's. >> reporter: ads for early black friday sales like starting now. i thought shopping on black friday was getting ahead of the holidays. are these early sales a sign that the best deals are only happening now? there are a feustel lahr offers. walmart with a sale on tvs like this 32-inch hdtv for $125. that's over 100 bucks off. great deals like this 60% off blanket discount on the columbia site with a code and amazon with a limited deal on up to 40% off
8:24 am
don't get too anxious yet about missing the lowest prices. >> anything that calls itself a black friday sale and is happening in the first three weeks of november is suspicious. we're very skeptical of it. >> reporter: they say it's worth waiting for better prices around thanksgiving. phone, predicted to be hundreds of dollars cheaper. tvs can be 40% to 70% off and beauty products so rarely discounted are ripe for buy one get one free offers. and the timing on deals is pretty standard. sales all year round. the number of great deals are low in the beginning of november but ramp up to peak discounts on thanksgiving day. >> if you want the best deals of the season, you do have to do a little bit of shopping on thanksgiving. take out your computer or take out your tablet and start browsing the door busters online that evening. >> if you don't want to give up your turkey day, good for you. enjoy the holiday weekend because the second best day for deals all year long, cyber
