7:45 pm
before we have enoughve e information to really figurey fg out where virginia is going asoa a state. >> mike, let me ask you a letas question. you know, we've seen the polls.po i don't necessarily completely l trust the polls.trust the po i think some people don't share their true feelings withli pollsters in the days leading dg up to an election but we know k based on those polls the pollshe numbers are close.se what has to happen for trump t in order for him to win tonight?togh >> well, i think in virginia in trump is looking for avi big turnout down state and perhaps p not a northern virginia which wouldgii be naturally a hillary clinton i base. i think we need to look at minority vote turnout in then te tidewater area, in richmond and in the northern virginiania area. those are going to be the keyse that i'm looking at the for howh the ultimately virginia isgini going to fall. >> joline, let me ask you l right now we are hearingnow reports that hillary clintonnt is leading in north carolina. cn we know this has been a hard har fought state for both the gop and the democrats.
7:46 pm
with a rally last night withith lady gaga. what do you think this earlyar prediction is telling us?ngs? >> well, if it's early now and w if it were the other way i'd i'd tell you it doesn't tell youel u anything but i just spent four days in north carolina doorolin knocking for hillary and with two -- with my girlfriends,irlfs dana and nicky, who said youo so have to say our names, and we w worked so hard and we met so mes many people but we really rll didn't have a real sense ofse how this was going to go. so, i just want to know did work payoff and one reallyeally interesting thing that i saw s in north carolina, they have these little staging areas all overmeek len burg county,urg co there were 12 just in onejustn n county where people opened their homes, had like minii campaign officers and it was w such wonderful grassrootsroot work, you know. i don't think we saw anythingnyn like that for trump. trump >> joline, is it -- is there a
7:47 pm
hillary clinton is going tong win, are you a little nervoustls that this could be closer thanu people thought it might be? b >> i don't want it to be close b at all.at all. i want it to be a blowout bwo because if it's not, we'rewe're going to have to really struggle with a lot of people who will feel more emboldenedmbe to continue to kind of hate -- - the kind of late we've beene hearing over the last year ande frankly i don't think it's ifthi good for our country. country >> if donald trump does win the election tonight, whatha sort of work will the republican party have d repair how it's beent's fractured? you've got thehe trump supporters and then and te you've got the traditional gop. how will they come together. >> it's nothing like winning to actually bring a partythinua together and i think tllhag t wl be 90's percent of it.0's ent people want trailing around alig winner but should he be be elected president, you know,w, donald trump is going to haveave to work out some of theof t visions between his vision for america particularly in termsms of trade issues like that asha opposed to what the elected ect
