only was there mudslinging by the candidates, but by their supporters, especially online. aswral's amanda lamb tells us... there are supporters in both camps who are maintaining a cool diplomacy and a cautious sense of hopefulness that a country so-divided can be repaired. students at nc state gathered to watch hillary clinton's concession speech... clinton: we are stronger together and we will go forward together... everyone wants unity, that's a common theme for everyone, and hopefully that's something we'll see in the next couple of months. many people were surprised by the results since most polls had clinton winning. political experts say pollsters questioned too many urban voters and not enough rural voters. david mclennan/political science professor meredith college: we just didn't do a god job collecting data. logan mclamb/student: 10:25:26 kind of stunned, i wasn't expecting it at all, i thought for sure that hillary was going to win. :08

that was amanda lamb reporting... political analysts say the days before trump is sworn in will have a big impact on how he is viewed by those who did not support him -- adding who he puts on his cabinet, his first policy decisions and how he interacts with congress will be key. many sacrificed sleep to watch the election returns roll in. reached for phones, tvs and newspapers to learn how the votes fell. donald trump won 290 electoral votes to become the president- elect. he only needed 270. however, he lost the popular vote. this is the second time in since the 1800s the winner has lost the popular vote - the other was george w bush in 2000. the governor's race still hands in the balance. the margin is razor thin - fewer than 5- thousand votes. incumbent pat mccrory is calling for
ballots to be counted before declaring a winner - and there are more than 60 thousand of those that we know of so far that need to be counted. but as bryan mims roy cooper is already counting the election as a victory. roy cooper coming out, cheering crowds shortly before one a- m, roy cooper appeared before a throng of supporters and declared himself the governor-elect. "because of your hard work, we have won this race for governor of north carolina." meanwhile, just a few miles away, governor pat mccrory said the democratic process would take a while longer. "and we've got to respect the election system. because no one respects democracy more than governor pat mccrory and ann mccrory, okay?" the day after came with dueling press releases. mccrory campaign strategist chris lacivita said tens of thousands of absentee, military and provisional ballots must still be counted: "and claiming an outcome before
irresponsible and disrespectful to the voters of north carolina whose voices are yet to be heard." the state's g-o-p chairman also vowed to send volunteers and teams of lawyers across the state to ensure an accurate count. so here's what happens now: election boards in all 100 counties will review all provisional ballots to see how many can be counted. a provisional ballot is one in which there are questions about the voter's registration and eligibility. mail-in and absentee ballots will also be counted -- as long as they're received by november 14th and were postmarked on or despite this process, cooper's camp sent this press release: "last night, the people of north carolina chose a new governor with new priorities. "with all precincts reporting, we have a strong lead and are confident that once the results are certified, we will confirm last night's victory." that was bryan mims reporting... the mccrory campaign is also concerned about what it calls possible irregularities with more than 90-thousand ballots from durham county.
certify results of provisional ballots on november 18th. so it could be more than a week before we know for sure who'll occupy the governor's mansion. the winner of that race will be working with a republican legislature. very little changed in the balance of power on jones street. several republican incumbents faced tight races in the state senate, and all of them won re-election, keeping a veto-proof majority. in the state house, democrats gained one seat.. they needed three more to break the republicans' supermajority. these results are also prelimi absentee ballots are processed. the last time we had a democratic governor and republican lawmakers was in 2012, under bev perdue. u-s senator richard burr will have a third term in office. the republican incumbent held off a challenge from democrat deborah ross. this race was considered critical for democrats trying to regain control of the senate. wake county superior court judge mike morgan moves to the state supreme court, with an election victory over 2-term associate justice bob edmunds.

get for her third and final payment. the hold up is in the state supreme court, where it hasn't ruled on 8 appeals from people who say they are eugenics victims and entitled to payment. only until those are resolved, will state leaders know how many people will split the money left in the compensation fund. the final payments may be around 8- thousand. stam is aware of elnora's pleas for answers. her too. paul stam: many times. renee: what have you been able to tell her? paul stam: they're owed that money from the state and i wish they could be paid immediately but i'm not in charge of the world. but in elnora's world... elnora: i talk to him all the time. she says she can hear her husband telling her not to give up, to keep fighting for her money. elnora: but he won't be here to see me get my last
