department. wickileaks has continued to post embarrassing e-mails from the account of john podesta. considering the tenor of campaign 2016 one could conjure up many post-election combinations. will the loser blame fraud or russia? we will leave the predictions up to others. we begin by investigating the big money to find out who is pulling strings behind the scenes in u.s. >> clinton is winning support from some of the wealthiest despite her position on taxes. >> clinton bragged about her great relationship with the financial industry. that is where she gets all the money. >> it is pretty much the wild west when it comes to outside spending. investigative investigative traction money for response politics and takes us through the murky world of outside spending by dark money groups

donor identity. if you are an average citizen one way it give is directly but that money is very limited. there are caps on what you can give. there's also what we call outside spending groups where you have heard the term super p.a.c. they can spend any amount of money and they can take in any amount of magic. people can give millions of dollars to super p.a.c. >> how can we trust the clintons to fight for us is it >> that is money that fueled negative ads organized opposition research news media outreach. when i see the hate donald trump has brought it terrifies me. >> i would like to punch him in the face. >> i don't know what i said. i don't remember. >> in florida they say she will put heads on 50-1. i think we are going to win. >> there's a super p.a.c. called
11:04 am
becoming hillary clinton. not that others are not helping but this one is totally devoted to getting her elected. it has raised a lot of money. donald trump has a couple of super p.a.c.s backing him. one problem has been it has never been clear which is the favored super p.a.c. so donors kind of don't know who to give to. >> the largest pro clinton super p.a.c. has raised nearly million compared to the largest pro trump super p.a.c. which raised about $16 million. >> when we look at outside spending where is his support coming and who is giving to his outside spending groups? >> his outside spending donors look a lot like the campaign donors. retired people. real estate, miscellaneous business. >> wall street firms clearly favor clinton giving her 100 times as much outside money more
11:05 am
trump's less than $1 million. so, wall street really comes out on top. besides wall street you have entertainment. people from hollywood and people from lawyers. >> who are the personalities with the deepest pockets? hedge fund billionaires. >> for clinton when you tractor in the super p.a.c. her top donors have been donald susman, james s and george soros. last time we looked there were no hedge fund billionaires supporting donald trump. now that he is the last man standing in the republican party that has changed. a lot of the hedge fund billionaires have not come aboard with trump but robert mercer did. he supported ted cruz until he
11:06 am
>> donald trump's biggest donors have been robert mercer who is actually with the same hedge fund that james bynums. jeff palmer a real estate developer in california. >> add it up and clinton has far and away more big donor support. $20 million from palumbo partners, $14 from men sapbs jim simons. more than $12 million each from soros and saban capital. 20 donors have given her more than $2 million each. he has only three donors in that category. 15 by 5 million from renaissance's robert mercer, $2 from g.h. partly sunny and associates and $2 million from the market foundation started by home depot's co-founder. within reason trump's numbers
11:07 am
conservative billionaires are on the sidelines. >> if some big republican donors are not contributing to donald trump, are they going anywhere or just saving their money? >> i think they are just saving their money. some have outright said they are not going to play very much this year. the koch brothers and their network is really staying out of the presidential race. david and charles koch are industri and they have been active in republican politics for a very long time. and they tend to be more mainstream republican than pro trump who is very much not. >> they are not helping him? >> they are not helping. >> by retirees are helping both in a major way giving clinton more than $60 million and
11:08 am
million. >> then she relies on lawyers, people from the education field, people who work for universities who tend to generally be democratic. for donald trump's campaign he relies more on businesses that we call miscellaneous, chemical industry, restaurants, ones that don't fit other categories, then real estate. >> trump's donor by far is trump. >> why aren't you putting money into your own campaign? just curious. >> we will get on to one more question. >> trump has put more than $66 million of his own money into his campaign. >> i'm putting up $100 million. it will be more than that. >> if he is raising less than other republican candidates but at this point fairly neck and neck with the democratic candidate what does it tell us? >> it tells us that he's gotten a lot of free publicity among
11:09 am
>> mr. trump -- >> he said that he doesn't need as much because he doesn't need to buy as much. the media just covers trump so much that he's everywhere you look and there is some truth to that. he may not need as much. >> the totals to date clinton supporters have given more than twice as much $687 million to trump's $306 million. and both candidates can brag of getting a lot of that the coveted small donor. >> i'm proud of the fact that we have more than 750,000 donors and the vast majority give small contributions. >> she is raised about 19% from small donors. a greater amount but smaller share than donald trump. his share of small concern funding is about 43%.
11:10 am
amounts like $61 apiece no republican has ever done that. >> how do the small donors he has compare to other candidates in the past whether bernie sanders or previous campaigns? >> bernie sanders got a lot of funding from small donors. his number was higher than trump alleys. obama was always successful with small donors. it shows in mart some of the larger donors may is hitting a chord with some real folks. >> how much of the candidates spending to get elected overall? that is calculated together aware closing in on $2 billion october 31 significantly more than what obama and romney spent by the same time in 2012, $1.7 billion. reports on hillary clinton and
11:11 am
11:12 am
>> campaign 2016 will be noted as one of most bit are in history the attacks have been deeply personal and will continue until the last hours of campaign. we thought on the eve of election we would take a different approach and offer the last good word on each decade from those who know them. which candidate to profile fires feel in the interest of pure
11:13 am
and trump one the toss. here is scott thuman. >> donald trump, his name is all over the manhattan sky line. >> he's been a success in everything he's done and everything he ever touched turned to tkpeld. >> his son eric is busy promoting both the family business and his father's political image. >> he loves bricks and mortar and concrete and he is a great creator. he has an unbelievable eye. he's great leader. >> and a father who earliest memories instilled a drive to follow a certain path even if he was 250 young. >> every day i would go into his room before i left for school he would look at me at six and say eric drinking no drugs no smoking and you better get good grades was six and didn't know what drinking, drugs or smoking was. >> he spent many an hour work on his book the truth about trump.
11:14 am
freelance at any moment so he is not strategic in that way. he is more about a confidence in his own talent and in the moment he will make the right choice and that if that doesn't work he has another moment and he can make another choice. >> three words that come up you hear everything from this is again ruthless to savvy to lucky. do any of them apply? do they all apply? >> maybe they all apply. luck is a factor of i think that the thing i would say would be work ethic, dedication. and striving to reach a goal and never stopping, never turning back. >> dantonio agrees. trump has no rearview mirror. >> if he wakes up on the day after the election and he's president, he's not going to be dogged by self-doubt. he will not be the guy who says
11:15 am
he will proceed with great confidence, surround himself with men primarily. maybe a woman or two whom he trusts and imagines to be the best and he will proceed with great confidence. >> confidence ingrained in trump at an early age. >> the message that the trump boys got from fred trump sr. was you are killer and you are a king. >> do you think he cares too much about legacy? >> no thing. legacy is a big thing. he built an unbelievable brand. he is the smartest guy i know. he is incredible. toughest negotiator and incredible spine and you need that feel >> there may be a donald trump we have not seen one other than the tough talking caustic candidate. >> i detected one thing in the time that i spent with donald that surprised me and it was a
11:16 am
he really doesn't have a sense that he's gotten what he feels he difference. and this is probably the reason for his constant striving and for the sense that there's never enough for him. >> in the end the quality that has brought candidate trump to the eve of the election might well be his secret weapon. >> he's done it by being human, by speaking out politicians but seeking as a civilian, as a person. >> eric trump summed it up by saying plenty of team have underestimated his father over the years and have been wrong more often than not and lost a lot of money doing that. >> thanks, scott. next hillary clinton as seen only in the eyes of friends that

politician but if her political career began in the senate in 2001, her political roots run much deeper and decades earlier in arkansas. lisa fletcher went to little rock. >> i don't have a political agenda. my days of working are over. i'm retired and i don't need a job in washington and don't want one of the. but i have nope there woman 35 to 40 years and i would trust her with my life. >> the former 4reu8 rock mayor has put on thousds crisscrossing the united states as one of arkansas travelers a group of friends that have campaigned for within or the other of the clintons since 1992. >> what is the most important thing you can tell a person about hillary clinton when knock on their door? >> if you want somebody who will get,every morning thinking about what they can do to make lives of our people, our children, men

11:22 am
personality but to be prepared to run for president and serve, you are not going to find anybody any better. >> the next president of the united states, bill clinton. >> in 1992 hillary clinton left arkansas but didn't leave her friends. they say she's grown but hasn't changed. but now they are counting on her to change -- the course of history. >> personally i have two daughters and a granddaughter. and two grand sons. i want a woman to be president. because i want to tell my granddaughter what i couldn't tell my daughters, that you can grow up and be president. there's nothing now saying that you can't. >> a few more personal footnotes they say hillary is an uber
