back in 2000, george w. bush, al gore, that was a close race, a topsy-turvy race. 2004 always. this was one in which hillary clinton always had kind of a stable lead in the polls. and what we ended up seeing in the national polls, had it pretty much tied. she has now gone up ahead in the popular vote. we knew the states like florida, north carolina, the polling always showed those would be tight. donald trump ended up winning them. what we didn't see, and all the polling kind of showed a different story, was that donald trump had some type of chance in a michigan. he had some type of chance in a wisconsin. and certainly in a state that had so much polling this entire cycle, a chance in pennsylvania, when some of the polls, you know, just as a month ago, showed hillary clinton with a double digit lead there. so i think there was -- you know, there was expectation that donald trump could do well in florida. that he could do well in a place like north carolina. certainly ohio/iowa. could he scale that blue wall. and we never had any indication, any data he could actually do it and that

george w. bush wasn't able to do. certainly john mccain wasn't able to do and mitt romney in 2012. >> he had family roots in michigan with his father the former governor there. they are worried about michigan and pennsylvania. they are not early voting states. they have assumptions about who will vote on election day tomorrow. i want to bring in chris cillizza, msnbc contributor for the washington post and a columnist as well. you are a harvard lawyer. i want to ask about jim comey and the fbi. how damaging have the last ten days been? >> you don't need a law degree. it doesn't give you any benefit in assessing that. it's been not good for hillary clinton. it was extraordinarily helpful to her though a lot of voting has already taken place to have director comey come in and clean up his mess. it did create a mess, an unnecessary mess and the fact they determined there wasn't any there there or anything much new there there that would affect his determination in the situation. it under scores what a mistake it was to send letters in the first place. >> chris cillizza, do you think

recent republican nominees, neither supporting donald trump, john mccain and mitt romney. george w. bush not supporting him either. the three most recent republican nominees not supporting trump. he thinks that's a virtue. that gets to your partner about paul ryan. a loyal supporter of bush and mccain. i think the split after november 8, assuming trump loses, between let's call them the paul ryan republicans and the donald trump republicans will be very great and fought out in a million different venues in the coming weeks, months and years. >> she returned from an uplifting message to going hard against donald trump. her criticisms of trump and ads against him and him against her is she's using his words against him. it's more fact-based. that said, if she wins it's winning ugly. >> we are old enough to remember the conventional wisdom from campaigns. you want a close positive, you need it to get the voters out. they want to feel pretty good. this wasn't the year for it to happen. the clinton campaign will say they tried to go positive, lay out the agenda early on. the media didn'

back to george marshall but certainly colin powell. you covered donald trump. he likes the generals. by the way, during the campaign said a lot of critical things. but these are the trump favorite generals, not the generals he was anonymously disparaging during the campaign. >> and not all of them. when you talk about mattis or petraeus. we saw mike flynn. they aren't just loyalists coming in, being considered for the positions. petraeus is interesting. it is not just state. that's the leading position he's being looked at for. perhaps director of national intelligence. perhaps another role open in the cabinet or the administration. this will be their first substantial face to face meeting between president-elect trump and general petraeus. >> this would be an ex-implementation of donald trump's frustration and hillary clinton did get 2 million votes more than he. she has not disputed contrary to some who asked her to get recounts. pennsylvania not so much. 69,000 votes separating trump and hillary clinton. that said, she piggy backed on the recount challenge by jill stein who ironicall

of the party and whose views did not sit easily with the george w. bush administration when he was the ambassador to the united nations. >> let me pick your brain a little bit about a conversation that's getting a lot of attention. the phone call that donald trump took at the end of last week with taiwan's president. the question, i guess, is whether this was strategic, what it means in terms of the short-term relationship with china. in simple terms, what are the real risks of, as some describe it, free-wheeling foreign policy in moments like this? >> the real risk here was that you violate the norms that have been set up since 1979. the campaign, the trump transition said there is nothing that's written in stone about those. that's true. the clinton administration and others have allowed taiwanese officials to travel through the united states which they couldn't do initially. they have relaxed some of the steps along the way. i don't think there was anything earth-shaking in this other than it was sort of an early marker to the chinese. i think the follow-on was interesting. >> y

-- i was there at the end of the bush administration and i think laura and george bush set the bar and were the gold standards of transitions. they couldn't have been more graceful and sure the obamas understood, whatever they needed, they could have. they were going to make that peaceful transition of power as seamless as possible. and i think president obama and mrs. obama have are seen that and will probably try to exhibit the same level of graciousness and dignity that they had to them and want to ensure that donald trump and melania trump and governor pence and mrs. pence see that same sort of transition and understand -- you saw the president's comments yesterday. he truly understands that while you can agree with someone politically, but showing the rest of the world how we transfer democracy and voters make us the greatest nation on earth. >> is donald trump now remaking the republican party? clearly, he was not an insider candidate. he's an outsider candidate from both republican and democratic perspectives. so, what changes do you see in the republican party since you've been

has been in place. it was in place in 1963 with jfk. it was in place on 9/11 with george w. bush. and last night the pool was definitely ditched while the president went out to dinner. in new york city. which is not exactly a city without protest. >> look, donald trump distancing his pool last night. heading out to dinner. people saying good for him. i think there's certainly broad understanding about why folks would think that. the reason why we have protective pool for all of those reasons you just mentioned because sometimes things go terribly wrong. you want to make sure that there's a pool there so that they can record that for the public, so that they can understand what is happening in the moment that it happens. think about 9/11 and how critical it was for the country to hear from former president george w. bush. he was able to do that. he was able to get on air quickly because he had a protective pool around him. so it's a matter of public record. it's a matter of making sure that we're keeping the public informed. and it's a matter of making sure that the president or p

dropped on december 12th, after the election, but george erbiler walker bush told david frost-a cruel blow and it helped to defeat him. >> but hold on, andrea, again, i've said this before, this entire thing has to be put into perspective. the only reason we're here is they rited rules and regulations from the get-go. if hillary clinton and her aides had used a state department e-mail, the rule at the time and hadn't tried to bleach it away and hadn't self-selected the e-mails, we wouldn't be here. this is a scandal of their own choosing. they chose to evade government rules and regulations, they chose to lie and lie and lie. this is where we are. they have no one to blame but themselves. >> sean spicer, great to see you. thank you very much. thanks for being with you. >> good to see you. >>> thanks for being with you, hillary clinton making a campaign stop, an unannounced stop at angie's soul cafe. i wish we were there before heading here to kent state. >>> and coming up, elijah cummings joining me next. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics, live from kent state university,

didn't vote for him. he's got to take lessons from president george w. bush, bill clinton who were elected with less than a majority of votes in their last election. they reached out to the other side. if republicans in washington understand that this was a divided country on election day and they have to work with the other party we'll make more meaningful progress if people dig in and play politics going forward and stick to the things that appeal to their base we won't solve major problems like climate change or really building an economy with more tax fairness that helps the middle class, not just corporations and the very wealthy. hopefully, this will be a signal that he is going to reach out to the other side. but i think he'll be measured by that every day from now on. it's got to be sincere and continuous. >> what should the strategy be for the democratic party without a leader at the dnc, with historic lows in the house, set back in the senate, potentially losing more democratic senators who might be joining the administration? what does the democratic party, what do you d

were going up on average 7.25%. 7:25% every year for the entire time george bush was president. increases are now less than when george bush was president. donald trump seems confused about health care and obamacare. >> there is a vulnerability now. the headlines saying the premiums are going up. not enough young healthy people join the system. they are more willing to pay the fines. he's got a point. you know, a broad point in terms of the politics of health care now. >> i agree with you. there is a lot of negative sentiment because of the announcement of big rate increases in places that can be cherry-picked. he's like a smart politician playing on that point. we should not ignore the fundamentals. the affordable care act has kept prices down compared to where they were on george bush. and another 20 million people. that's an amazing accomplishment. there are problems with it. all of us, the day i walked out of the white house from passing the affordable care act said this isn't a perfect bill. we know there are problems in it. that means you make mid course corrections. i wo

cabinet secretary under george w. bush to serve all eight years of his term. somebody who would probably be confirmed 100 to 1. i think generally you don't vote down the senate majority leader's wife. not to say she doesn't have strong credentials of her own. i'm told mr. trump liked elaine ch chao's drive, energy. her stamina. that's very important to him. i think she will be an instrumental player as it relates to donald trump's push to get a trillion dollar infrastructure package through the congress. >> i would only question your math. it would be 100 to 0. >> what did i say? 100 to 1? >> i really wouldn't question your math. let's talk about tom price. he comes from strong credentials from indiana. >> that's right. i want to focus on that piece for a second. you can see mike pence's influence in this focus on repealing the affordable care act which of course donald trump made a center piece on the campaign trail at the encouragement of those who have been in the party longer than donald trump was initially. tom price, a very conservative congressman overlapped some with mik
