7:07 am
him all of those nebraska electoral votes. new hampshire short. he has to flip one of these rustbelt states. this is not the easiest path for him. maybe it is wisconsin. that would put him over. of course a pennsylvania would put him over. but what happens if she pulls off north carolina which a lot of people think. then you see here, as you saw even with pennsylvania, we've got to flip something else. even win two of these rustbelts -- a wisconsin, or maybe even a colorado which we've seen he's got to figure out how to break through the big blue wall, wisconsin, pennsylvania, michigan. there's still not any hints he can overtake her. he's making it close in all three places but this is where that has to happen. >> that rustbelt strategy is always what they said. >> chuck, come on over and join our conversation. chuck says he has to flip a blue state.
7:08 am
him and looking to try to accomplish that in the last couple of days, where is the best shot? >> the problem is he's not ahead in any of those states and he's not tied in any of the states with enough electoral votes to get him above 270 or to get him to 270. it is a hail mary strategy. i guess you spread the time. it is a good thing he said he doesn't need a lot of sleep and his schedule reflects that. he is in all of them. >> what about hillary clinton? what is her strategy over the next couple of days? i know it's basically get out the vote, get out the vote. but also hope for a wikileaks free weekend. >> i think there is that, but she is -- they've decided to close hard negative. every ad. they've trying to remind everybody about every negative thing trump has said, especially to african-american audiences, hispanic audiences. yesterday she brought examples of people, they would introduce her to say donald trump essentially discriminated against me. in front of an african-american
7:09 am
it was an program woman. in front of hispanic audience, she brought an hispanic woman. i kind of think she ought to do something like, i know a lot of you have some trust issues with me -- but. and i don't think they're going to do that. >> we gave you homework assignments and were king what you thought each candidate should dif you were hired by the campaign. >> highly unlikely. >> what is your best piece of advice for the donald trump campaign? >> his mentality when he goes to these big rallies is to entertain them and give them the show he th they've waited in line for. it is generous as a politician stump speech and focus like a laser. on his outsider message. it gives him the best chance of flipping one of those stes. >> i think simply continue to let kellyanne keep his iphone or android. the other thing i would say, show a little bit of humility. i think there are some voters out there that want to know that he actually feels a little bit of remorse for some of the harsh things he said. sort of answer these ads. she's closing this way, maybe actually say the words "i'm
7:10 am
saying, okay, only four days to go. but what happens after that? let's look at these numbers that may give us a strong hint of that. as we said now twice. 8 in 10 americans say the campaign has left them disgusted or repulsed. how about these numbers? when it comes to donald trump supporters, only 6 in 10 say l acth'lpt the results of the election if he loses, and only 40% say they think their votes will be accurately counted. where does that leave us in the year to co? >>t leav us in a place we've never been before. listen, all politics being very rsonal. i am in a family divided with trump supporters and clinton supporters. the healing i think will begin in every community and every household. but i have never seen numbers like that. i saw something that 70% of ople think that the election will be rigged. that means a lot of democrats who think by foreign power and a lot of republicans by state and local election officials. upwards of 60%, 70% of people are grappling with how the
7:11 am
tabulated and executed. >> can i be the schoolmarm here? you didn't do your hillary clinton homework. >> so hillary has to make sure that he turnout in the operation that obama pioneered that's why you see the or her. president, mrs. obama on the trail to sort of activate that. then she has to get through a weekend without another fbi bombshell. she sort of needs a bombshell-free weekend. >> i just think, i smell a two-minute ad. that big, long closing ad, her to camera. look, she's got trust issues. you nobody -- she's not going to fix them with an ad but look the american people in the eye and say, look, i get it. i know you have some issues with me, but i promise "x." makes an ethics play. do something. she's not doing anything to actually respond to those concerns. >> long few days ahead of us, guys. thank you. cyber attacks have already played a major role in this

8:36 am
>> it worked out. >> it definitely did. this is so exciting because it comes from the mind of j.k. rowling and all of us harry potter aficionados will recognize the title of the textbook in the original harry potter movie with "the fantastic beasts and where to find them" which is one of the books the kids studies. but there was no plot. so it opens it up. don't you think? >> yeah. it was so exciting to get to read the script because nobody knew anything about it except for maybe a few actors and designers and the crew. first people to read it. >> does anyone feel any amount of intimidation that the hopes and dreams of harry potter fans are resting on your collective shoulders? >> what are you talking about? >> no, you are right. we all felt like when we were making it the people behind this made all the films. so we all felt so -- they made us feel so secure while we were making it. in a sense we started promoting the film.

pressure? >> now i'm like freaking you out. how was it for you? you are the no-mag for us. you're the american, not a muggle. you don't have wizarding powers. how do you fit into this group? >> oh, man. you ever read or seen mid summer night's dream? >> yes! >> you know the bottom character? just like a regular dude? but he gets to go into the magical forest and he falls in he gets changed along the way. gets to play with the fairies and he gets to play with the wizards and then by the end, he kind of thinks, man, maybe this is where i was supposed to be. you know? >> and your character, newt scamander. he comes over, he has his magical briefcase. he's been going around the world looking for these fantastic
8:38 am
the world studying and finding these extraordinary creatures and a lot of them live in his case so it has a kind of mary poppins like quality to it. but he arrives in new york and it sets a lot of things in motion. in some ways it is like the catalyst into a bigger story of proper -- back into the potter world of good versus evil. there is a sort of epic scale to it that he triggers. >> epic is a good way to describe it in terms all of this. a lot of times we have actors come here and they'll talk about like, oh, i had to train for this or i did these stunts. as i understand it, at least for the three of you, you had to do some wand work. can we talk about wanding. is it really difficult? >> they've got wand elbow. >> who got wand elbow? was that from like flicking it? >> i think it is doing the same action over and over all day. the next morning you woke up and
8:39 am
>> but if feels kind of good because it makes it feel like you were giving it your all. >> you practice at home with the wand? >> oh, yeah. i basically just walked around the house all the time. my wand work would never give me a bad elbow. wanding is very easy. not practical. >> we better wrap this segment. i should say, congratulations to you. i know you and your wife have a new little one. little miss iris. how is she? >> she's doing incredibly well. she's heaven. we're very lucky. >> we're so happy for you. great to see all of you. i know we will see you a lot because there will be more sequels in this, we hope. >> good luck. >> thank you so much.
