boss -- ♪ tonight girl we'll be free all the promises will be broken ♪ >> reporter: to bon jovi. ♪ here comes the sun ♪ here comes the sun >> reporter: and the final day of campaigning didn't end there. a midnight rally in north carolina with lady gaga. ♪ >> reporter: overnight clinton flying back to new york and when she landed, a group of friends and supporters right there to welcome her home. so much of america waking up this morning saying they are glad election day is finally here and trust me, the campaign feels that way too. hillary clinton after her stop here today will be largely out of sight for the rest of the day until that big party tonight in manhattan. what she hopes, of course, is a victory party, aides tell us that they've got two speeches prepared for her, one for each possible outcome, robin. we don't know if she's looked at either one of those yet.
7:06 am
>> all right, cecilia, thank you. donald trump jr. is standing by and will join us in a moment. first joining us live the democratic nominee for vice president senator tim kaine is joining us live from richmond, virginia. good morning, senator. did you get any sleep last night? >> robin, i got about three hours of sleep but i feel about as good as you can feel with three hours of sleep. >> you've already cast your vote. >> i have, indeed. we opened the polls at 6:00 a.m. in virginia. i got there at quarter till and by the time i had voted there was already quite a long line in my neighborhood. i was excited to see that. >> we're seeing already long lines all across the country as the polls are opening. senator, what have you seen so far be it the early voting and such, these last few days out on the campaign trail that have given you confidence or possibly concern, what have you seen? >> well, there are three things, robin that are really important that real data, you see who is registering to vote and then you see who is asking for absentee
7:07 am
ballots and returning them but then you also see the early vote participation in the states that allow it. and what we're seeing in terms of early participation is very, very strong. democracy always works better the more people participate and i think the energy and enthusiasm about what we believe will be a history making race, that's the thing that gives me the most, you know, the most feeling of optimism right now. >> there is a lot of enthusiasm, a number of states are still in play. what has you your eye on, gives you the greatest concern? >> well, yeah, there's a couple of states that i call checkmate states so probably 10 or 15 that are battleground states, but the ones we watch really close are checkmate states. those are states where if we win, we know hillary will be president and i say this about north carolina, pennsylvania, florida, ohio. these are four checkmates. i think if we win any of those
7:08 am
four hillary will be president and i think we have a chance to maybe win all of them but there are some of them will be really close, so we're watching those states very, very closely. also look, i'm selfish. virginia wasn't competitive at all when i got into politics in 1994 until president obama won it in 2008, it was assumed to be safe republican territory. our polls close at 7:00 p.m. this evening. so we'll probably know how virginia is going pretty early tonight and that will tell us something too. >> as voters head to the polls there in your home state of virginia and all across the country, people who will be voting in favor of you, those who will not, what do you say to those people, the american people who are going out to let their voices be heard today after such a challenging election season? >> i just encourage them, robin. i lived in honduras 35 years ago. it was a military dictatorship and nobody could vote. they prayed for the day that they could elect their leaders,
7:09 am
things like peaceful transfer of power and respecting election results were what they looked at us as setting the example for, so my main pitch to everybody is, we are so blessed to have the opportunity to participate in a vigorous way. we just passed more than 200 million americans registered to vote in this country and i just hope we see record turnout for what i believe is going to be a history making election. >> and peaceful one at that. all right, senator tim kaine, thank you very much. we move on to donald trump wrapping up his campaign with a midnight rally in michigan. he is back in new york city this morning to vote. says he's going to win with the help of tom brady and bill belichick of the new england patriots. our tom llamas has been with him from the start. tussled with him at times here in midtown manhattan. good morning, tom. >> reporter: george, good morning to you. this morning donald trump will be here in manhattan and he'll vote. he'll walk into his polling location, grab this giant ballot, he's going to open it up. at the top of that he'll have an amazing moment.
7:10 am
he'll see his name as a choice for president. now, melania and ivanka trump will also be voting with him this morning. this will be the first time itha ivanka votes for her father. he'll need every vote he can get. on the eve of election day, donald trump already declaring victory. >> i think we're going to blow them out tomorrow in a lot of different way, blow them out. no way. this is not the sound of a second place finisher, that i can tell you. >> reporter: trump's marathon campaign taking him to five battleground states in one day, finishing past midnight in grand rapids, michigan. >> we're hours away from a once in a lifetime change. we're going to have real change. >> reporter: but before that, laser light show in new hampshire and a surprise, trump announcing two of the most
7:11 am
popular people in new england are supporting him. patriots coach bill belichick and quarterback tom brady. >> so i said, so, tom, you voted for me, you support me. am i allowed to say it tonight to this massive crowd in new hampshire? he said, if you want to say it, you can say it, okay. tom. that's what a champ is all about. >> reporter: in sarasota, the republican nominee pausing as his crowd erupted in chants of president trump. [ chanting "president trump" ] >> reporter: for trump reaching the height of presidential politics anything but humbling and making sure everyone remembers. >> they say it's the single greatest movement politically speaking in the history of this country. can you believe that? can you believe it? that's quite an honor. >> reporter: when asked by "the wall street journal" if it was all worth it, trump saying it took massive amounts of work, incredible amounts of intrusion
7:12 am
into my life, unbelievably unfair hits to my family but the answer is very proudly yes. trump telling his supporters his work is done. now it's up to them. >> well, you know what you can do, go out and vote tomorrow. that's what you can do, i'll tell you. that's the only way. that's where you beat the rigging, folks. >> reporter: now donald trump says if he wins tonight he'll celebrate for an hour then wake up on wednesday and immediately start working. if he loses movement or not donald trump says this will be the single biggest waste of time, money and energy. george. >> okay, tom, thank very much. let's talk to his son, donald trump jr. one of his dad's closest advisers. thanks for coming back in. i remember the morning of the iowa caucuses, the first votes. we sat down and talked. ten months later you're here on election day. how would you sum it up? >> incredible. to go around the country and see all these people, so many who
7:13 am
have been disaffected by the political system and that's really a bipartisan problem, people who have been let down by politicians time and time again. to be able to see them face-to-face, not just on tv every once in a while but have them come up to you with that emotion, it's been awesome. it's moving. >> robin asked tim kaine where he sees hope. the polls show you behind right now. what are you looking for for hope? >> so i want everyone to turn out, people who have been let down, i want them to turn out and vote and bring their friends and we'll see what happens. i mean i have seen that from so many people that come up to us and they're screaming, we love you, keep doing what you're doing and i've had just as many come up and say, we love you, keep doing what you're doing. they've been put in a box oftentimes by the media. by a false narrative created out there. you know, they can't be as vocal about supporting trump and it's going to be interesting to see how that turns out. >> you saw your father last night at some of those rallies say if he loses this whole thing has been a waste of time. is that what you think? >> you know, i don't know about that. i would love to see politicians
7:14 am
wake up and start representing their constituency. what i've seen, government of the elite by the elite and for the elite. and seen it whether it be all of the corruption out there, all of the nonsense that we've been reading about over -- i don't think that's what the american want wa want. they want a voice again. they haven't had it in a long time so hopefully we can be the start of that movement to give those people back their voice. >> this is a bitter campaign. if your dad wins, how does he bring the country together. >> i think he has to start by doing what he's been doing. i was in detroit yesterday. my father has gone into the inner cities and gone to places where traditional republican candidates wouldn't go, wouldn't even think about bothering to campaign because he knows he has to be president for all of america and go into those places and make sure he follows through. >> if he loses will he work to bring the country together. >> i imagine he will. i think, you know, again, we've all grown a lot during this process. we've all learned a lot. easy to be glib when you're in stork city and work for a
7:15 am
successful business and family but he's seen those people and been watching them for 18 months. their american dream has been exported to foreign countries and someone else is living that dream. weigh want to bring that back and do that as best we can regardless of the outcome. >> thanks for coming in this morning. >> that morning in iowa seems like a long time ago. >> i always say the last 18 months has been the longest ten years of my life. thank you. as voting gets under way our latest tracking poll shows hillary clinton holding steady with a four-point lead over donald trump. abc's jonathan karl joins us with a closer look at where it stands right now. millions heading out to the polls today. 45 million have already cast their vote. where do things stand right now? >> the early vote has been huge. robin, we don't know how any of these people have voted but we actually know quite a bit about who is voting. take the biggest swing state of them all, the state of florida, if you look at this you've had democrats with a slight edge over republican, a little bit over a percent. but look at the huge independent
7:16 am
vote. almost 20% of the vote has been independent. in the state of north carolina, you have democrats with an even bigger edge over republicans in the early vote and a considerable independent vote. here's the thing, though, although democrats in both those states have a big advantage it's actually less of an advantage than they had four years ago when barack obama barely won florida and lost the state of north carolina. so we don't know, again, how that vote is going to play out. >> you heard tim kaine talk about those checkmate states for hillary clinton. so what is donald trump's most plausible path now that our poll is showing him behind. >> it's a tough path. first of all, if you look at the abc rate ratings he has to go through and win every single one of the states that we have as toss-up states. even if he does that, george, take a look what happens to the electoral count. if he wins every single one of our toss-up states he is still short of the 270 he needs and needs to win one of these big blue states like michigan or pennsylvania and, again, those
7:17 am
are states that he has not led in a single poll since this election started. >> going back to the convention. jon karl, thanks very much. >> all right. this is going to be your home away from home today. michael will be -- tonight too. tonight michael is going to be outside and that's where he is right now with a look at what we can expect. michael. >> i'm going to be here. i'm going to have a coat on tonight. abc news, we are taking over times square for election 2016. we've got this giant interactive map that's going to change colors throughout the night when abc news projects a state tore clinton or trump that state is going to turn red or it's going to turn blue. now we've teamed up with facebook to create this booth in times square that's right behind me. we'll talk with some of the voigt from around the country in person, we're also going to talk to them on social media about some of the things that are most important to them and meanwhile, while this is happening here, the candidates, they've been having a little fun on social media lately. hillary clinton and her team taking on the mannequin challenge. there we go.

states are voting on everything from marijuana to the death penalty to gun control. it is a big day on a lot of issues coming up. robin. >> got to keep that in mind. a lot of excitement here in new york and in those battleground states that could determine the election. the candidates have been spending a lot of time in florida. it's considered a must win for trump but not a guarantee. paula faris is in miami shores. paula, what are you seeing so far? good morning. >> reporter: well, what i'm seeing, i'm not seeing a line because over half the state already voted but it's all about florida. 29 electoral votes up for grabs. donald trump has spent more time and more money in this state than anywhere else and calls it his second home but almost impossible to win if he doesn't pick up this state whereas secretary clinton who has also spent the most amount in florida can still afford to lose florida and go on to win the presidency. one key demographic we are keeping a close eye on is the hispanic early vote, in 2012 that comprised 522,000 votes.
7:32 am
fast forward to this election cycle, almost double, as massive surge talking 980,000 and keep this in mind, 36% of those that voted early from the hispanic community in 2016, you guys, didn't even vote four years ago. this is a base that is extremely motivated. a base that is expected to skew heavily for secretary clinton and way base that could not only determine what happens in the sunshine state but ultimately decide the election. robin, back to you. >> paula, thank you. >> you know sunshine state is important but north carolina is also a major battleground state and hillary clinton spent her final night of the campaign there and abc's linsey davis is in raleigh. a big law could help drive voter turnout. >> reporter: you're exactly right, good morning to you, michael. lots of enthusiasm here. the line to vote is actually out of the door. that's because there's so much at stake here in the tar heel state. for starters you have that transgender bathroom law. such a polarizing issue and the thought is that's going to drive a lot of people to the polls.
7:33 am
in the most recent poll here in north carolina, you have clinton and trump tied neck and neck. in 2012 north carolina voted for mitt romney. in 200 they voted for president obama and prior to that north carolina had not voted for a democrat for president since 1976 when we were talking about jimmy carter. but in 2008 a big help for president obama was the extremely large black voter turnout. the school of thought is that hillary clinton will need a repeat of the same in order to win the state tonight, guys. >> o. lykay, linsey, thanks, i' joined by matthew dowd, cokie roberts and along with alex castellanos and stephanie rawlings-blake, the democratic mayor of baltimore. thank you all for being here. matt, let me begin with you, sunday, you said hillary clinton has a 95% chance of winning. you sticking with that. >> maybe 96% this morning. i think one of the mysteries we don't know that could affect the election is what's the composition of the electorate.
7:34 am
i think the trump campaign hopes it looks like 2014. the clinton wants it to look like 2012 or 2008. donald trump's only chance to be the new york giants coming across town going to madison square guard enand beating the new york rangers on their ice. >> anything is possible. >> you accepted the challenge. cokie, cokie, you and many others feel it's going to be a much tighter race. >> that's because the country is so divided and it's really hard to see how you get big swings one way or another but i do think that matt is right, 2012 except on steroids because we are seeing this big hispanic turnout which is very interesting. i think the african-american turnout is going to get up. but we have a group of swing voters, people who have not voted democratic before and those are college educated white women and if they vote for hillary clinton today and up to today the way they have been showing up in the public opinion
7:35 am
polls, then she's got the election. >> and now alex, on george's show you predicted a trump victory but you agree it's going to be hard for him to win the latino vote. >> i think it's going to be very hart. matt is here to provide rational analysis. i'm here to balance that. >> sports analogy. >> recently as 2006, more hispanics in florida were registered as republicans than democrats. boy, has that changed and that is going to be i think the big moment of the night is does donald trump take florida? if he does not, it's going to make the path ahead nearly impossible i think. >> martha, let's take a look at the big picture here and the entire campaign. what has really mattered. have issues barely have come up at times, it seems. >> as you know, robin, i've been cross the country and talking to voters. issues do come up. they really do and talk about immigration and they talk about the supreme court. but i think what it boils down to is temperament and character
7:36 am
and whether they have the temperament and character to address the issues they're talking about, to address national security. i heard again and again, temperament questions about donald trump and character questions about hillary clinton. so in the end, i think that's really what will make up people's minds. >> and bottom line, both candidates enter election day the least liked candidates in american history so mayor, let me bring this to you. you are a hillary clinton supporter. even if she win, looks like she's not going to have a honeymoon but a majority of americans saying they don't like. how does she address it. >> you've seen secretary as a resilient woman and i think she will be a resilient president and understands we have to heal our country. that's why she talks about the fact we are stronger together and understands the diversity of our country is truly our strength and i think that she is the right person at the right time when this country needs to come together to lead us. >> you know being in baltimore. how do you go about doing that, healing? >> you have to get in there and
7:37 am
when you -- she has a former mayor as her vice president. he knows the ground game. he knows how to get in communities and get things done and you have a we will have a president who shows every single day that she cares about american families. and i think that will be the healing that our country needs. >> don't underestimate the excitement that will be there if, in fact, she wins. this dislike will go away at least briefly because she'll be the elected president and she'll be the first woman president and that will cause a tremendous amount of excitement. >> i think whoever wins, this country is exhausted from this election. we are all going to be hungry for something to bring the family together and i think whoever wins is going to be given a gift. given that moment to bring the country together. i hope they're wise enough to do it. >> matt, they'll require partners as well for the sake of argument if hillary clinton wins as you believe, what do you expect from republicans in washington? >> well, my guess is paul ryan and mitch mcconnell and others
7:38 am
are going to basically take the reins away from donald trump as quick as they can tonight. take the keys away from him being the designated driver and position them as representing the party going forward. who is the leader of the republican party after tonight? >> all of you will be here with us tonight. thank you very much. get some sleep during the day. coming up here how secure are your votes and can the election be hacked? brian ross is here with what americans should be worried about as they head to the polls. we'll be back in two minces. ♪ ♪ ♪

[ chuckles ] for holiday tips and recipes, go to back now here on "gma." a look at those lines all across the country here on election day and that's hillary clinton's polling place. she will be voting shortly. but back now with cybersecurity and your vote. u.s. authorities are on high
7:41 am
alert this morning in case there are any actions, any antics, anybody trying to hack into the election and here is abc's investigative correspondent brian ross with much more on this. good morning, brian. >> well, good morning, robin. the watch is on this morning as nearly every state has asked the federal government for help to protect its voting system from being hacked. but the fact that each state for the most part has its own somewhatant indicated not always internet friendly way of doing things is project the best protection against the final outcome somehow being affected by a cyberattack. or as one candidate has claimed rigged. >> the system is rigged. the system is rigged, folks. it's all rigged. we're in a rigged system. the system is totally rigged and broken. >> reporter: cybersecurity experts have long warned about how simple it would be to mess with individual electronic voting booths. >> it would be very easy for someone to put a piece of malware on this type of device especially if these cards are
7:42 am
not encrypted and while they're voting, manipulate the card to either plant an embedded code on one of these devices or multiply the number of votes they're submitting. >> reporter: there is no evidence any such rigging has ever taken place but at least four states including illinois have had their voter registration rolls targeted or scanned. >> we're highly confident that nothing was added, nothing was deleted, nothing was altered. >> reporter: but officials are concerned the scanning by hackers in russia or elsewhere may have been just a preparation for today. >> there have been a variety of scanning activities which is a preamble for potential intrusion activities. >> reporter: and security experts say the aim could be to cause confusion hitting targets other than the voting systems themselves. >> organizations could hack into a social media system, could begin posting inaccurate or misleading information regarding the election. trying to undermine confidence in our election system.
7:43 am
>> reporter: u.s. officials say they have sent word to the russians in, quote, the strongest way we know how, any attempt to attack the u.s. election system will have the harshest consequences. >> can they do anything to stop them in they can. they're on patrol right now, department of homeland security headquarters. they can shut down attacks from overseas and can shut down the lines and blacklist a known address that is trying to attack into the system. >> brian, how about security in general? >> very high, especially here in new york with both candidates here outside trump tower this morning. trucks lining the outside to guard against crowds coming or possible bomb blast, very heavy security. >> all right, brian, thank you. >> the u.s. has fingered the russians. let's see what the russians say. our alex marquardt is in moscow this morning. you know, putin has been a major player in this campaign the whole way and, of course, denying these charges from u.s. intelligence officials. >> reporter: good morning, george. that's right. he has, of course, denied any role in the hacking and in speaking with experts here it's unclear whether an order would have come directly from putin or
7:44 am
and from the kremlin whether something a bit more independent, that's likely we will never have an answer to. what is clear is that he has been seizing on the anger and division in the u.s. to fuel instability and that's something he's had quite some success with. >> he's been such a player in this entire election. we know that he was not happy with hillary clinton as secretary of state, vladimir putin especially for what the u.s. did after he went into ukraine. donald trump said a lot of great things about vladimir putin, putin has said a couple of things about donald trump in return but do we have any indication about who he really wants to win? >> reporter: no, we don't really know who he'd like to see inside the white house. he hasn't said anything publicly. people close to the kremlin have expressed doubt about trump's n unpredictability. his lack of experience. if this were left up to ordinary russians it's much clearer. in a poll released yesterday they overwhelmingly support trump and he would get around 38% of the vote to clinton's 9%.
7:45 am
either way they're getting ready for both candidates here. you can see the souvenir shops rolling out these mat tri eanes. >> alas no electoral votes for donald trump in moscow. >> all right, coming up in just two minutes, the white house isn't the only issue on the ballot. the hot button issues sending millions of americans to the polls today. plus, what are kidding caring about this election season. letters from our children to the future president. and we'll have what they want to see from our next leader and for our country. i have asthma... of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine,

7:48 am
political offices to all those ballot initiative, voters have a lot on their plates this this election cycle so let's start with indiana. governor mike pence dropped his re-election bid so he could be donald trump's running mate and recent polls are showing eric holcomb in a tight race with jo john gregg. it's playing a major part in that state and then marijuana is big on the ballots this year. five states are considering whether or not to legalize it. maine, massachusetts, arizona, nevada and california and that state is home to more than 10% of the u.s. population so a lot of people impacted with that one and then also in the golden state a potential law on ammunition, prop 63 would make it illegal to own magazines that have more than ten rounds and require background checks for people buying bullets. it came about in the wake of the massacre in san bernardino. one more in california, voters
7:49 am
there considering the state's death penalty prop 62 would scrap it entirely and replace it with life in prison so a lot of people heading to the polls not just for the presidential candidate in mind but voting on a lot of these proposition, robin. >> it is so important, amy, to keep that in mind. coming up from the trumps to the clintons how are the candidates' families shaping the election. we all know there's a lot of tension on election day and prior to and we have some great ways to deal with the stress. dr. ashton is going to be here with that. that's coming up.

8:03 am
scene. i tried to shout a question, asked how she was feeling about election day. i got a big wave. i got no comment. i'm used to that one, george. she has called this the test of our time and election day is finally here. this historic day, a historic moment is how she closed down this campaign overnight. you mentioned that rally in philly. they were there on the historic independence mall and some of the big names. jon bon jovi, bruce springsteen, but, of course the clintons and obamas side by side and not just that, the largest crowd of this entire campaign. 33,000 people, that's the biggest crowd for any candidate in this race and hillary clinton had a chance to make her closing argument. take a listen. >> we face the test of our time, what will we vote for, not just against. what will we decide is on the ballot because although my name

8:05 am
superstitious so this morning he called up fox news, f fox & friends and said he always did that before the primary win so did that today and acknowledged he does have regrets but he didn't want to list them. he says you always have to look forward. he feels confident. he thinks they'll win florida and surprise people in other big states. now, yesterday he campaigned from 11:00 a.m. in the morning until 1:00 a.m. today this morning. he had a late night rally in grand rapids, michigan. he actualably believes that blue collar workers, disaffected white working class voters will turn out for him and he'll be able to break that blue wall of support for hillary clinton. last night in new hampshire he had a crazy rally. it was a laser light show. his family was on stage, governor mike pence was there. his running mate, rudy giuliani and a big surprise and announced he has the endorsement of two of the most popular people in new england and new hampshire, of course, they're in new england, quarterback tom brady for the patriots and, of course, also the patriots coach, bill belichick who wrote him a very personal letter.
8:06 am

registration fraud. authorities say political operatives from a group tied to the democratic party have been fabricator voter reg stations for months to meet quotas. so far no charges have been filed. and with both presidential candidates holding election night parties in manhattan, the nypd as you might imagine is deploying more than 5,000 officer, double the number us l usually assigned on election day. it's about the same number though deployed for new year's eve or the pope's visit. and you know what, finally, we have one picture that may just sum up the national mood on this election day. take a look. a divorce sale at this house on the market there in florida and there on the lawn a trump sign right next to a clinton sign. they say a picture says a thousand words and i think that one does exactly that. >> they couldn't agree. >> divided america. >> that's it. thank you, amy. so you have a political "pop news" there. >> a little news at the top and political flavor for you.

good morning, everybody. it is time for "pop news" and begin with kensington palace issuing an unprecedented statement asking the press and internet trolls, i say that in quotes to respect prince harry and his american girlfriend meghan markle's privacy coming to her defense and acknowledging their relationship is in process. the letter explain, quote, prince harry is worried about her safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her. this is not a game. it is her life and his. prince harry says the media has, quote, crossed the line. >> the palace was livid in that letter. >> and we were correct in our reporting. we can now confirm apparently they are dating. >> but we are not trolls. >> we are not trolls and i do think that they have every right to have a nice romance. >> it is a big deal that she's now under the umbrella of protection of kensington palace. that's notable. >> there you go. >> breaking news from amy. >> we will still on that story in a most respectable way.
8:09 am
now switching to the election, some election theme "pop news." this year may be stressful but voters in pennsylvania have puppies at the polls to make the ruff decision a little easier. the providence animal center and pennsylvania spca will plan to have puppies at polling locations in an effort to attract millennial voters and reduce anxiety. this pawsome idea comes from next gen climate that brought pups to iowa and north carolina, pennsylvania, nevada and new hampshire and turning now to our own initiative to help as many shelter dogs find their forever hopes drum roll, please. could this be a coincidence or not, 1776 dogs have been adopted so far as of this morning on election day. >> how patriotic. >> yes. >> hamilton-like popularity in our pawsome dog adoption. keep it coming.
8:10 am
we are on it all month long. it took a dog food commercial to deliver one of the strongest messages of this election. an actress sporting a pro-trump t-shirt pretends to lose her dog in the middle of a very big hillary clinton rally. she does the same thing later at a trump rally wearing a hillary t-shirt and asking people if they can help her find the dog's rightful owner. she's wearing the t-shirt, this is a social media experiment. the reactions you are seeing are real and the growling you see stops by the end of the commercial when the dog is reunited with its owner, the message is loud and clear, we are all concerned about the same things, we all have heart and when 2 comes to dogs there are no political parties. it's a really warm, wonderful commercial, brought a tear to my eye. pedigree did a great job and at the end of the day that's what we have to remember. we all want the same things for our children and our country and that is "pop news." >> great job. >> thank you, lara.
8:11 am
i'd like to do it again, you're working it. coming up, the candidates' secret weapons. their families. we have an exclusive poll revealing what americans think about the clintons and the trumps. come on back. you know how it is, someone does something nice for you and you feel obligated to do something nice back. maybe your aunt sent you a crocheted scarf, you sent a thank you note... and the crochet just kept on coming. well, at carmax, you don't have to return the favor. they'll buy your car even if you don't buy a car from them. because feeling obligated is uncomfortable. and tight. in places it shouldn't be. carmax won't make you feel that way. lucky you. i feel like a quilt. for millions of baby boomers there's a virus out there. a virus that's serious, like hiv, but it hasn't been talked about much. a virus that's been almost forgotten.
8:12 am
it's hepatitis c. one in 30 boomers has hep c, yet most don't even know it. that's because hep c can hide in your body silently for years, even decades, without symptoms and it's not tested for in routine blood work. if left untreated, hep c can cause liver damage, even liver cancer. but there's important information for us: the cdc recommends all baby boomers get tested for hep c. all it takes is a simple one-time blood test. and if you have hep c, it can be cured. be sure to ask your doctor to get tested for hep c. for us it's time to get tested. it's the only way to know for sure.

and take a look, former president bill clinton along with secretary clinton going to vote. this will be the first time she votes for herself as president of the united states in a general election. of course, she has done it during the primaries and both candidates have had their families by their sides on and off the trail this season. >> since you mention that, the results of a "gma" exclusive poll suggests more voters believe that trump's family has been a greater asset than the clinton family. will that sway voters? back to paula faris. she's in miami shores, florida,
8:16 am
with much more on this. hey there. looking good there, paula. >> good morning. hi there. thanks, robin. family, ah, we all love our family, as we just mentioned trump's family is seen more of an as set than hillary clinton's family. families tend to humanize the candidates but as we all know families can bring out the best in us and the absolute worst. it's a long standing political tradition. >> he will make fantastic president. >> she's strong enough to be president. >> i am so fiercely ridiculously proud of my mom. >> reporter: the potential first families pounding the campaign pavement for that presidential win. >> we get a sense of who they are through their children, through their spouse. we want to get a human connection to that individual. families give us that connection. >> she's the best darned change maker i ever met in my entire life. >> reporter: still hugely popular in democratic circles, president bill clinton has tried to capitalize on that love. staying largely on message while
8:17 am
campaigning in states where his wife's opponent is strong. >> i have been aware of his love for this country since we first met. >> reporter: but in a rare move for political spouses, melania trump has been mostly absent from the trail. >> so it's hard to say whether she's been a positive or negative factor. she really has been a neutral factor. she really hasn't taken to the stump herself. we really haven't gotten a direct connection to melania trump through any of her independent efforts. >> my only mission is to get him there because i know he can make a difference. >> reporter: some saying the trump children especially ivanka have filled that void. the eldest trump daughter emerging as one of her father's strongest political as sets even announcing major policy plans. >> we had a very comprehensive plan for how to make child care more affordable, more accessible, create more optionality. >> i think ivanka trump has been a better surrogate and a more effective surrogate for her father than any of other
8:18 am
siblings or melania trump. i think she's been poised, she's been on message. >> i know with all my heart that my mother will make us proud as our next president. >> reporter: as an experienced campaigner, some political analysts say that chelsea clinton has helped to show the softer side of her mother. >> i think where chelsea clinton has broken through it's in talking about her mom as a mom. talking about herself as a mom. it's the personal side not the policy side that chelsea clinton can vouch for her mom's candidacy. >> reporter: so who would do what within the administration? melania says a potential first lady she would champion children's cause, cyberbullying and social media. donald trump, a lot of people really want his children to get involved said that they probably would not serve in any capacity in the white house. as for hillary clinton, bill would serve in some sort of role focusing on the economy and chelsea clinton has told many friends if her parents called upon her she would return to the white house.

clinton held a star-studded rally overnight joined by the president and first lady and a few other stars. abc's eva pilgrim is there in philadelphia. what a night it was, eva. >> reporter: yeah, big night. this is a tipping point state, amy. a state that could put either candidate over the edge. while this state has historically gone to the democrats every year since 1992, it is very much at play this year. both candidates making big last-minute pushes. trump with a big crowd in scranton and predicted in october he will win so big here. clinton with that star-studded packed crowd at independence mall. she had bon jovi, she had bruce springsteen as well as the president and mrs. obama. and a key area for people to watch here is these philadelphia suburbs. they've historically gone republican but the changing demographics make this an area either candidate can win and for trump this is especially important. republicans usually have to carry the philadelphia suburbs
8:32 am
to win this state, amy. >> all right, eva, that's of course, why we saw melania there last week, robin. >> we'll watch those all night long. outside to lara and michael now. >> thank you so much, george. also here this morning our campaign reporters who have been on the trail since that very first day traveling almost 2 million miles combined. we're going to talk to them in just a moment. but first let's take a look at what they saw behind the scenes. from two new york announcements. >> i am officially running -- >> i'm back. >> to one seat in the oval our tireless abc campaign reporters have been there for it all following the two candidates still vying for your vote. >> to think that from that escalator we have gone two iowa, new hampshire, nevada, south carolina, texas, florida, i mean, you name it. >> you see thing, you get to cross this beautiful amazing country. it's been an incredible experience. >> sacrificing their normal lives for more than a year.

8:34 am
the interview and worked to get questions together and at the end we just chatted casually. she told me about a bracelet she wear, one that nelson mandela gave her and another that has a charm of her granddaughter charlotte on it. >> he's very close to his little army. he wants everyone's opinion. he's very engaged with them. he knows what's going on in their lives. that little team around him is really become a very tight-knit family. >> and picking up a few hacks for life on the road. >> you have to enroll in every single rewards program imaginable. >> getting tsa precheck was critical to my time on the campaign trail? nyquil, day quill, you never know. band-aid, you never know. >> a life-changing experience that comes to a dramatic conclusion today. >> to think after all of in that it's suddenly over, it's weird. i mean, this is our lives. >> but for them figuring out what's next is easy. >> the first thing i will do is

8:37 am
internet and something happened that you really needed internet. >> well, yeah, the day that director comey had released his update to the letter. we had no way to communicate or even know about it and we told the clinton campaign staffers about the story and seeing their faces and not being able to report it out, it was quite a situation, but, you know, people lived in a time without internet so -- >> there's got to be a way. we did it before. we have to do it again. candace, not one but two embed, with jeb bush first and then trump and a bit of a mishap on your end once. >> well, you know, i think through the course of this year and a half i've traveled to 700 -- i've traveled to 300 city, 38 state, probably 700,000 miles so sometimes you forget where you are so i was in wisconsin supposed to be driving to milwaukee. i put in the name of my hotel driving catching up on calls and see signs for minneapolis, i had driven 3 1/2 hours in the wrong direction so needless to say i missed that event. >> a woman after my own heart.

8:43 am
make it a teachable moment. tell them, you know, i hope my candidate wins because i support and mention an issue so you're always relating it to something and also make it relatable to how you deal with a loss or how you act when you win. when your soccer team loses or wins and you're like good game, if you lost you go back and say how can i make myself better as an individual and also the team h is all about one country and all of us together. >> i love that. be a classy winner, be a classy loser. >> a teachable moment. that's what you two are always telling us about. that's what parents can do. what can parents do for themselves. >> the first thing is acknowledge the stress. that's number one. number two, talk about it. don't feel like you have to keep it inside just because it's a loaded topic and then you know i always think focus on the basic, trifecta of health, eat well, try to sleep well, try to move your body every day and you know i'm a big believer in meditation as i know you are. >> i did it this morning. >> i think we need a double session today. maybe three. george is giving me the thumbs

after all, when there are no ceilings the sky's the limit. >> russia, if you're listening, i hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails. >> and they showed he didn't pay any federal income tax so -- >> that makes me smart. >> donald supported the invasion of iraq. >> wrong. >> that is absolutely -- >> wrong. >> proved. >> which means he's either not that rich. >> wrong. >> not that charitable. >> wrong. >> or he's never paid tacks in his life. >> wronger. >> as clinton tries to enter the van she loses her footing and nearly collapses. >> you could put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. >> grab them by the [ bleep ]. you can do anything. >> i said it. i was wrong and i apologize. >> avalanche of accusations against donald trump. >> such a nasty woman. >> and you know what else i prepared for, i prepared to be
8:50 am
president. >> the process of rigged. >> the fbi gets a warrant to examine thousands of e-mails from a top clinton aide. >> it's pretty strange to put something like that out with such little information right before an election. >> our new poll shows the race for the white house remains neck and neck. >> the story and mark updegrove joins cokie and matt. it's like -- you sit back and you watch that. >> it's depressing. >> no, no, what was the biggest moment for you. >> we saw a lot of them there. but i also think that back in the republican primaries, when we had all of those people, how did we get to donald trump? and one of the moments was when george was doing the debate in new hampshire and chris christie just went after marco rubio. >> it was martha and david doing the debate but i agree. i think that was an absolutely key moment in the campaign, had that not happened marco rubio was rising.
8:51 am
he would have come in second in new hampshire. would have had a different primary race. what about you? >> my moment which set all of this in motion was the day he came down that escalator and gave that speech because i think it set him up at that point to win the republican primary and also set him up an implanted the problem that he's likely to have tonight with latino voters and other voters of color. so that speech, that escalator, that moment changed the republican primary and changed the nature of this election. >> that escalator ride was over 500 days ago when you think back to that moment. >> wow. >> mark, the historian, will history be kind. >> i don't think history will be kind to the election cycle. what i'm struck by when you look at those, how profoundly different these candidates are. you have the establishment candidate in hillary clinton. no one is surprised that hillary clinton got the nomination and you have the anti-establishment candidate in donald trump. everyone is surprised that you
8:52 am
know he got that. if you don't have a distinct choice, if you don't know who you're choosing when you go to the polls, you haven't been paying attention. >> you know, there's something quite wonderful about that, i mean, this is the consent of the governed. that was always the american experiment and the idea that someone who is totally from the outside with his whole party apparatus against him and all of the conservative intellectuals against him, first of all wins the nomination and has the pablt possibility of being president at thes you something about the american system. >> regardless of the result tonight history will be made in two ways tonight, first it'll be the most diverse electorate we've ever seen in an election in the history of the country and, secondly, no matter if donald trump wins or hillary clinton wins it will be historic. donald trump win, somebody without any political experience and military experience has never got elected president and the first woman president if hillary clinton wins, history will be made tonight in history on both sides. >> and we will be here all night long. you will be here with us.
