7:11 am
very weak, flawed candidates. you're connected to the republican circles. is there talk in those circles about what might have been? >> yes. and what happens next. i think you will see a flurry of republicans try to rush in to fill the leadership void and re-brand the party in the view of establishment republicans, who roundly lost the primaries, an effort to re-brand the party so there isn't generational harm done to the republican i think you will see a rush of establishment figures and riing leaders of the party come out in the coming days. >> every cycle, it gets to be more and more important. there they're also besides democrats and republicans, there is a big chunk of independents vo voting. do you have any idea which way they're swinging?

8:04 am
sure worth staying up for. >> reporter: in the key battleground of north carolina, hillary clinton making her final campaign pitch in front of a roaring crowd overnight. her last event punctuated by energized performers, lady gaga and jon bon jovi. and massive crowd outside independence hall. >> i am not going to let anybody rip-away the progress we've made and turn >> reporter: a showcase in democratic star power, president obama enjoying his highest approval ratings in four years looking to preserve his legacy with a final impassioned plea. >> i'm asking you to work as hard as you can this one last day to elect our next president of the united states of america, hillary clinton! >> reporter: on a crisp fall night, an all-star lineup

8:07 am
to try to find out what he plans to say tonight if he's even prepaing remarks. so far no answer. what he says will be crucial. can he begin, if he, is to help unify the country or if he loses, for so many americans to redirect that anger and frustration to unify the status quo. >> thank you very much. >> investors on walt keep close -- wall street keeping a close watch after stocks surged on monday. ali velschi at the exchange. markets hate uncertainty. today is the ultimate uncertain day. what do you expect to happen in the markets today? >> if you go back nine days, when james comey first issued that letter to congress, you saw the market give up about 300 points. as soon as he said, we're back
8:08 am
market made up that 300 points and some. we're at a point the market seems to think hillary clinton is going to win the election. what markets tend to like is president of one party and congress of another party. if we stay where we are today you will see 90 minutes lower if the market prepares for a hillary clinton victory. if during the course of the day this market gets clues it might see it come down. they are not as anxious for donald trump victory than hillary clinton victory. part of that is because markets like certainty, not that they like hillary clinton more than donald trump, if they think hillary clinton will win, they will celebrate if hillary clinton wins. >> thank you very much. first to support the nation's intelligence community, poised and ready in case of any election day cyber attacks. sean henry, chief officer of
8:09 am
formerly. this is a unique job. everybody is concerned about cyber attacks but who knows what form it would take? would it be hackers or state sponsors or messing with vote totals or something on the internet? how do you prepare for something like this? >> we know the russian government has tried to interfere with the process thus far and hacked before. i don't think we will see it with the ballot process because likely to see that. we may see hacker activists groups sponsored by russia eats sponsored or supported by them likely to see them go to social media to put a doubt in the electoral process, about creating chaos in the electoral process. >> what does the effort to prevent it look like? are there hundreds of thousands
8:10 am
screens watching odd factors? >> reality is they aren't going to be able to stop it. you have command posts set up strategically around the country with the fbi and they're looking for unusual anonymous traffic and respond to it. they won't be able to prevent it or pull people off the network. >> are you telling people to treat everything with grain of salt if you see it flying over the internet? t historically is these groups change data to create a doubt of the credibility of our election. >> shawn henry, thank you. >> and spending his damontoring any voter irregulariies as part of nbc's vote watch unit. our good morning to you. donald trump has fed this story

8:12 am
kind of malfeasance going on. the other big thing of the counting itself, allies of donald trump -- and does your ballot show the right candidate and is there some sort of problem and that gets called in pretty quickly and that coun ing leads to what everyone cares about, accurate count who he winner is. >> every year and election cycle weee confusion to voter fraud. we appreciate that point. >> let us bring in tom brokaw, and he has been through his share of election days in 50 years at nbc. we look to tom for sanity. >> you're looking at the wrong person for that right now. i do think we need reformation of our vote process.
8:13 am
that's no way to run a democracy. i have been looking back at what we've been through in the last year. let's take a look first at what we've been through. >> two aging baby boomers, both wealthy and very public figures for most of their adult lives. met on the great battleground of a presidential campaign and divided the country. disenfranchised, white working class, gun owners, evangelicals, hillary to women, minorities, traditional democrats, the political establishment. and at the end, the country is still deeply divided, a prescription for grid gridlock. at a time when there are major issues to be resolved. we're at war in the middle east
8:14 am
how do we resolve the immigration probably humanely. >> we have to establish borders and we have to build a wall. we have to build a wall! >> how to fix healthcare without leaving millions with no coverage. and the new economy, how does it serve the old workforce? clinton and trump had their loyal followers but the majority of the american voters went into this election not wild about either candidate. that universe of social media, clever, idealogical left and right designed to wound not to heal. after all the turmoil of more than a year in the end, the two candidates were better at dividing than uniuniting. >> hillary clinton will be under investigation for a long long time. >> reporter: trump picked fights
8:15 am
muslims, including the parents of a muslim american serviceman killed in iraq. clinton mocked some supporters as a basket of deplorables. >> i am sick and tired of the negative, dark, divisive dangerous behavior! >> it has been a marathon of anger and the country is ready for it to be over. those on both sides are anxious about the future. >> who's ready to vote in this there will always be differences. at the end of this campaign, america remains a sharply divided red state-blue state nation with too few common goals and too many deep differences. >> the polls say the defining theme of this election has been fear on both sides and across the country. you cannot continue to operate under an umbrella of fear. i think beginning tomorrow
8:16 am
fashion by bringing the country together. knew say that. i've known you for a long time. i would characterize you as an optimistic hopeful person. when you consider which side loses tonight, 40 plus million people are going to be disappointed and some of them won't even accept the results of the election, how do you go forward? >> i think that's a very very astute point, matt and you look at the matt in the south and coastal regions for the democratic candidates. how do you bring t everyone agrees we need to do something about public works, bridge, roads, rail lines in this country, that's a nonpartisan issue. start with that. you could have a 5 cent gasoline tax where prices are where they are right now. put people to work and put it in the treasury. my dad worked on a big dam right after the war. it absolutely converted this
8:17 am
families who got to go to college and have lives they have today. that's one place you can begin. another place you can begin is public service for the mel lineals. they want to do it but they don't feel attached to the institutions of government. i'm involved in a public service economy at arizona state. boon -- we had 100 sign up last year and 250 this year. we have to relieve the pressure with less than 1% of the uniforms and going off to war. there are a lot of jobs that could be served in non-military roles in a new form of public service. party elders are already beginning to talk across party lines about how we do these things. they know the country cannot continue with the schizm running down the middle. >> compromise cannot be a dirty word with our politics.
