so it continues between donald trump and megyn kelly and now newt gingrich. >> that gives "inside politics" with john king a whole lot to talk about. we'll land it over to them right now. john and kate, thank you. welcome to "inside politics." i'm john king. beautiful view of the capitol there from a rooftop across the street from the white house. another beautiful day. thanks for sharing time with us. 13 days until we pick a new president. donald trump right here in d.c., finished opening up hismi hotel. hillary clinton live in florida. take to you that when hillary clinton starts campaigning in the all-important sunshine state. you see the event there. get to it in a few moments. first, an important conversation to frame the race. donald trump insistence he's winning and that the media is lying.
>> -- fighting a crooked establishment and just about the biggest part of the crooked establishment are these people right back there with the phony cameras. they're a bunch of phony -- >> well, that's nuts, mr. trump. sorry, poll after poll after poll shows trump is losing, and, no, we are not cooking the books. if you're a trump supporter you probably don't believe me. so consider this -- if trump is winning why, then, is the national rifle association which supports donald trump all but conceding a hillary clinton victory? >> now once back in the senate and wants to help hillary fill another chair on the supreme court. >> that an ad, the indiana senate and rice, then, if trump is winning are republican senate candidates all but conceding a hillary clinton victory? >> hillary clinton should not have a blank check with our jobs
and our security. >> in the senate, katie mcginty could give hillary everything she wants. >> pat toomey would not. >> with us to share reporting and insights today, ashley park e, "new york times." cnn's malika henderson and cnn's manu raju. start there. mary kathryn staarine start wit. the race is not over. he says we are lying. we are not . interesting, the last 24 hours republicans going from what they've said privately think he's toast to the nra running an ad in indiana saying don't elect this democrat because you don't want hillary clinton to have a democratic senate. don't give hillary clinton a blank check. seems to me republicans are saying it's over. >> kellyanne conway certainly in a less advantageous position for
the next 14 days now, whatever it is. the strategy has to change at some point if it looks in these states they're going down from the top of the ticket. you have to make a different argument. the argument is not a bad one because people don't love one-party rule but you have to make it and can't pretend he's not falling in your state, pennsylvania especially. indiana is worried certainly for republicans. should be a red state. obama won it in '08. a more solid state is not looking great some of the commentary is striking. read from the conservative block red state. haven't been trumpers haven't loved trump to begin with but some tried to mute it when they thought he would win or to help other senate candidates. the ramifications of such a nomination can't be easily shaken often. the entire party structure latched itself on to donald trump and much like a terrible drunken night of one bad decision after another the party will be left sick, smelly and possibly a bit sticky. i'm reading. >> smelly? >> 2018 should be a year for
extending the year. now a year of recovery. >> the knives are out, john. it's got to get worse after election day, assuming republicans come up short. especially if they lose control of congress. the debate that will occur, whether or not the party needs to do more to build consensus with democrats cut deals on thinkings like immigration. move forward in that regard, or does the party abandon its core conservative principles and fight on those grounds? that's going to be the crux of the republican debate on capitol hill going forward. something we've seen for years but even more pronounced and also a blame game about who would stop trump? republican leadership stopped trump earlier, or not do enough to help him late in the game? >> what happens in the next 14 days throughout this? your newspaper today saying that privately trump is saying, paul ryan should be held accountable. punishment, because the speaker of the house has not been open in supporting me. a radio interview yesterday trump said, how do they live with themselves? meaning the other presidential candidate, in florida, i think
he means marco rubio, not come out full-throated in embracing donald trump. listen here, even campaigning against hillary clinton here's donald trump again campaigning against republicans. >> the fact that the washington establishment has tried so hard to stop our campaign, which is actually a movement. this is a movement, folks. and -- this is the last time we're going to have a chance. four years, it's over. it's over. in four years, you don't have a chance. all of these characters, they want to run in four years, they can forget it. they're wasting their time. you don't have even a little bit of a chance. this is it. >> in an odd way, he's acknowledging the demographic ditch the republican party is in and one a lot of republicans think he's digging deeper. the other point about this. usually recriminations start
after the election. recovering a day or two and then start pointing fingers and everything. it's remarkable that trump in private says punish the speaker. in public, says to republican establishment is against me. >> trump said in audiotapes that have come out and interviews given that he loves fighting. and he hates losing, and the more he starts to lose or feel like he's losing, he becomes more erratic and blames other people. with these fights he doesn't care who he's fighting with. typically you try to fight with the democrats, rival, other party, he's just at happy to take aim within his party and have vicious fights with republicans. >> making these choices puts them in odd boxes. pat toomey in pennsylvania running an ad, don't give hillary clinton a blank check. he won't say who he's voting for, for president. an incumbent republican senator won't answer the question. joe heck, senate candidate in nevada congressman running for the senate seat. listen here. won't answer the question. who are you going to vote for?
>> it's my ballot. i'll wait until november 8th. >> do you think people don't have the a right to find out who their possible future senator will vote for? >> it's a secret ballot, just like your ballot is a secret ballot, no, it's not just like your ballot's a secret ballot. you are a member of the united states congress. you're declared member of the republican party and you want to be in the united states senate pt leaders lead. right? >> it's shades of alison lundergren grimes running in kentucky painful 30 seconds's her refusing to say who she would vote for. this is the place donald trump left the party. one of the things look at that rally when he was in florida there, there was a black woman there who had on a shirt that said, trump and the republicans are not racist. right? they have to make that argument at this point in the campaign. they have to make that argument about the nominee of a major party and the rest of the
republican party tells you why they're in this fix. they haven't been able to expand the base of this party. trump for a while, you had people on the sidelines, republicans partially, waiting for trump to get better, waiting for him to be a different person, more disciplined. waiting for him to be less focused on revenge and score settling. that person never showed up. and i think all the dams -- everything's broken now and it's every man and woman for himself. >> yes. the republican party and many folks runs in this nearly impossible position to walk a line and acknowledge the real anger and frustration and economic insecurity of those who have backed trump and speak to that, acknowledge it, treat it with respect, but you also have to while trump is using his type of rhetoric to speak to them, speak to a completely different kind of swing voter and suburban women and college educated whites. and walking that line is very, very hard. trump is not helping by either keeping his rhetoric in line or keeping his eye on the ball, which is sort of the basic ask.
>> the question we won't answer until a week from tuesday, what about the candidates who won't say? are they helping or hurting themselves have to get away from trump but won't tell you who i'm going to vote for. open warfare in the republican party, finger-pointing. last night on fox news, a lot of people think that's a reliably republican place to go. not always. megyn kelly shown courage asking questions about donald trump. trying to ask of the former speaker newt gingrich and got interesting. >> you want to go back through the tapes on your show recently? you are fascinated with sex and don't care about public policy. >> me? really? >> what i get out of watching you tonight. >> you know what? mr. speaker, i'm not fascinated by sex, but i am fascinated by the protection of women and understanding what we're getting in the oval office, and i think the american voters would like to know. >> why we're sending bill clinton back to the east wing. after all, you are worried about
sexual predators. >> not me. about the women and men of america. >> we could have a conversation about whether newt gingrich is the proper person to prosecute that argument and the go back to the 1990s. i covered that building behind me in those days, rather interesting. moments ago dedication of a trump international hotel here, donald trump was not talking much politics but did want to give an attaboy to newt. >> made that statement not long ago now trying to withdraw that statement. she wants to withdraw that statement so badly, newt. by the way, congratulations, newt, on last night. that was an amazing interview. that was an amazing -- >> now, we've learned throughout this campaign that trump has a megyn kelly complex, but -- >> complex, fixation, obsession. something like that. >> i come back to the first rule of holes i call it. if you're in a ditch, stop digging. he has a problem with women voters in this electorate and what is that?
what is an -- i'll let the ladies speak. as a guy, seems weird to give an attaboy to that one. not all that smart. >> i don't think it's quite like if you've lost megyn kelly you've lost america, because you pointed out she has shown a strong degree of political independence from the party. i think in this election, where both candidates are so unpopular, whatever candidate is dominating the news or you're talking about is simply losing. so that's trump's problem. that he brought this all on himself. not only did he say those things in the video released, but then he can't stop talking about these women. even a policy speech at gettysburg hyped as a major address to roll out his chosen argument, he could not help but add in his prepared remarks, and by the way, i'm going to sue each and every single one of you women. it steps on his message. >> as if he's fascinated by sex and not that interested in public policy. >> touche! >> and also goes to show he's standing in place.
where was here in october 20915? arguing with megyn kelly. a year later, arguing with megyn kelly via newt gingrich. >> i digress. take you down live to florida. hillary clinton campaigning. 29 electoral votes one of the biggest battlegrounds on the table. take a listen. >> all of my stops here in florida, partly because i was horrified by it but also because, think about this -- when you are sworn in as president, you take an oath. you take an oath to preserve, protect and defend the constitution. and listening to donald trump's campaign, i truly doubt that he has ever read the constitution. or if he did, back in school he certainly doesn't remember it, and he doesn't understand, it is
the most important founding document for the longest-lasting, greatest democracy in the history of the world! in america, we don't say we're going to keep you in suspense about whether we'll respect the outcome of an election. we have free and fair elections, and a peaceful transfer of power. that is one of the things that makes america who we are, and we fool around with that and we criticize that at our peril. you know, as your secretary of state, i went to 112 countries, and a lot of those countries, a lot of those countries are ones that are not democracies, or they're it only pretend democracies. they actually have authoritarian leaders or dictators, and, yeah you know what? they rig their elections. you know? somebody running gets 99.9% of
the vote. we've seen this. we know what that means, and some of you either yourselves or your parents or your grandparents came from places where that went on. and we can never tolerate anyone running to be president of the united states who undermines and questions our fundamental democratic values. now, we know has he spent his entire campaign attacking one group of americans after another. he's attacked immigrants. he's attacked african-americans, and latinos, and p.o.w.s and muslims and people with disabilities and, boy, has he attacked women. but now his final tart get is democracy itself, and we have faced challenges to our democracy before, and we've got to keep working until we have a more perfect union, and our very
first president understood that. i mean, george washington refused to become a king. you know, folks were saying, hey, you know, this president thing is okay, but maybe we should have a king. well, we had a revolution to get out from under one king, and george washington was wise enough to say, no. i'm going home. we need to have the peaceful transfer of power. one person can't act like they're in charge of everything in america. that's not who we are's we disagree. in case you haven't noticed, but then -- >> listening to hillary clinton campaigning there in florida. 29 electoral votes at stake there. a very close race. new poll out today says donald trump my be a little ahead. after the break, it's hillary clinton's birthday. does she like her gift from wikileaks? put some distance between you and temptation with

welcome back. the special is available on the internet, but not at your local diner. it's a scathing reverend to hillary clinton's chief of staff. we know tab because's wikileaks. at issue the moments outside of clinton's inner most circle found out about that private e-mail server at their home "why didn't they get stuff like this out 18 months ago? crazy, written to a campaign chairman john podesta. reply, unbelievable. i guess i know the answer, her response, they wanted to get
away with it. ouch. republicans seizing on it. released from john podesta's e-mail. clinton campaign won't talk about specifics because the russian government allegedly hacked them and gave them to wikileaks. but this shows the angst, even her campaign chairman wasn't told until very late she had a private e-mail server in her home when secretary of state and shows secrecy, some say paranoia of hillary clinton and her inner circle. i covered the white house, she was a lawyer on the clinton team. keep this from the people from the last possible second and only release it if we have to. >> the big issue. will you have the same problems should she get elected to the oval office? terrible her inner circle is talking about this in this way. more terrible for them if it had come earlier.
shows in-fighting and upset with hillary clinton. the things we saw in the 2008 campaign, different circles of power. i think one of the things about this, it certainly knew information about an old problem and old issue probably for most voters is baked into the cake. look at 2012, about 20% of voters made up their minds who to vote for in october and split for obama and mitt romney. thankfully for hillary clinton some is baked into the cake but foreshadows some of the same problems. >> these are people who love her. noh not critics. she's nuts, secretive and -- >> to me always a razor. of course, wanted to get away -- simplest explanation always the right explanation. a clinton, did something shady, wanted to cover it up and it ended up hurting her. voila, exactly what's going on here. >> the reason the wikileaks
stuff is so damaging it reinforces the narrative. anytime there's something that shows, reinforces a negative area about a candidate it's not a good thing add the narrative, she's not trustworthy, secretive, try to hide things from the public, lawyer-ee in responses, not forthright. each underscores this. not each one will be damaging but the sum total of events and affe affecting that overall view of her to the public. >> devastating, he's in are people speaking in love. right? not angry, disgruntled, frustrated but want the best for her like a mother/father giving a clear-eyed assessment of their son or daughter's real weaknesses. that hurts, too. >> and one of the lawyers on the team. effective lawyer and carry with them this, again, some call it paranoia, a fair statement, certainly republicans out to get
us, damnit, hide everything as long as we can. another from mills, the president of the united states, e-mail publicly disclosed president obama said i'm learning about the private server like you are. but he had several e-mails from hillary clinton from the personal e-mail. she wrote to john podesta. need to clear this up. he has e-mails from her. they do not say whitehouse.gov. the president doesn't say that, he says unaware it was a private server in the basement of her home. knew she had a personal e-mail but like colin powell, a server at the state department, just through normal gmail. again, dragging the president of the united states back into this. what is this all about? republicans say it stinks. >> right. i think that the point earlier. if this had come out in march, the heat of the democratic primary could have been a really game-changing development.
>> for bernie sanders, caring about a differ set of e-mails. >> may have. certainly may have. or could have actually moved some democratic voters, particularly the e-mails that criticize bernie sanders, perhaps maybe care about that. >> yeah. >> the fact that early voting has started. millions of voters have started to already vote. the debates are done, these are coming out now. in a lot of ways, that is not -- does not have, carry the same political impact as it would earlier, but clearly, so many, so much ammunition that republicans can seize on. >> looks like it stinks because it stinks. these are people who knew what they were doing, doing something wrong. the president saying he didn't know about it but actually he did know about it. these are simple to american voters and why so many people on hillary's side of mystified how donald trump keeps it close. this is why. people are looking at hillary going, we know what she's offering and don't like it. this is reinforcement. >> helps trump make the change argument status quo, just going to do it again.
politicians as usual. play by their own set of rules. another issue late in the campaign. no more debates, don't get to ask hillary clinton about this. these are fair questions. can't keep saying russia hacked. so is the substance of the e-mails. obama care open enrollment and increases. get your health care through the affordable care act, depending on the state you live, your primaries are going up. here's hillary clinton's take in a radio interview yesterday. >> we're going to make changes to fix problems like that. the president and i have talked about it, and, look, this is a major step forward, 20 million people, and actually i'm sure you know that's predominantly working people, african-american, latino people now have access to insures, but the costs have gone up too much. so we're going to really tackle that. >> the most interesting foort io
me, the president and i talked about it. have to fix it but not throwing the president under the bus. >> essentially saying the president acknowledges there are problems as well. i'm going to fix them. you know, the problem for trump is that he hasn't been able to really seize on this. he seemed to not even know how obama care operated, how his own compani companies' health care plan operated when he had that press conference. that's a problem, and it's also true this is an ongoing debate for the last six or so years with republicans saying, oh, we're going to go in, fix it and nothing's really happened and true a lot of people who have obama care actually like obama care. look at the approval rates among african-americans and hispanics, they actually like it. >> the reason this could be damaging or helpful to republicans, damaging to democrats, it gives down ticket republicans we've talked about an issue to finally run on. talk about obama care. talking to kelly ayotte earlier
in the week and asked about donald trump. quickly she pivoted to obama care. clearly now with this in the news, it gives them finally something they can unite their party behind, even if their nominee is having trouble. >> a logical pivot. ask about donald trump pivots to something. at least there's something to pivot to. up next, does the reality of the map match donald trump's state-by-state take on the race? ♪ approaching medicare eligibility? you may think you can put off checking out your medicare options until you're sixty-five, but now is a good time to get the ball rolling. keep in mind, medicare only covers about eighty percent of part b medical costs. the rest is up to you. that's where aarp medicare supplement insurance plans insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company come in.

welcome back. just about every stop these days donald trump has a message for anyone and especially republicanance saying the race is over. donald trump says look at the map. think again. >> it's a big, big vote in the state of florida. we're leading iowa. we're leading ohio. we're doing great in north carolina. pennsylvania, we're going to a lot. i think we're going to do great there. they put the miners out of work. we're putting the miners back to work. i think we're going to do great there. >> so is he right? let's go through the states.
donald trump mentioned iowa. he is leading in the most recent poll in iowa. a state president obama won twice. at the moment, advantage trump. what about ohio? that one's a dead heat. republicans need to win it to win the white house. at the moment, donald trump is in play in ohio. very close getting to the end. also, this is great news for trump. other polls shown clinton ahead, but a brand new poll out of florida today showing donald trump, that's a statistical tie, but maybe momentum for trump and a little lead in florida heading into the final days of the campaign. certainly good news for trump. this is not as good news, though. mentioned pennsylvania. says he thinks he can do well there, at the moment, secretary clinton with a healthy lead in the latest polling in pennsylvania. and battleground north carolina. trump has two rallies there today. well, he needs to make up ground. again, latest polling showing hillary clinton with a lead in north carolina. so when you switch the map you say, does donald trump have reason to be optimistic? at the moment, secretary clinton with a pretty lopsided advantage when it comes to electoral college. let's see. if the florida poll is right and
trump happen momentum, get him better. somehow swing ohio his way, make it better. already holding iowa. absolutely has to win north carolina. behind at the moment. say what would happen if he got that? that gets him into play, but still has trouble out west. that's why mike pence is out in utah today. two ruby red western states struggling. impossible for trump? no. hard for trump, yes. but hillary clinton says because, maybe, maybe the race is getting tighter at the end i'm going to fight to the end. >> i want you to know we still have a lot of work to do. i feel good, but, boy, i am not taking anything for granted. i'm going to work as hard as i can between now and the close of the election next two weeks from today. >> so if you go through the states, the race getting a little tighter. a week ago people talked about a huge blowout. at least the states are getting tighter, but, emphasis on but,
the fact mike pence is in utah today speaks volumes to me about the fundamental problem republicans have in the sense of going state by state by state that guy who's actually right here in this building, mitt romney. donald trump called him a choker. underperformed mitt romney just about everywhere you look. >> never a good sign, and his team is pretty clear on what states he has to win, and his strengths and weaknesses. talk to them privately they say we're having more trouble, for instance, in georgia than expected because he's not doing well with suburban women, which plagues him in a lot of states. interesting that then does not translate to either messaging or strategy. not doing well with suburban women, you should not have donald trump go out and say the things he's saying about women. so they know what they need to do, know where they need to improve but are not quite able to do it yet. >> the challenges you laid out there, john, the map is not the 2012 map. not the 2008 map. totally different. they have to defend a number of these red states that are at
risk of going blue. you mentioned utah, of course, georgia, that's arizona potentially as well. as well as some polls show donald trump underperforming in three red states where there's, there are major senate races, indiana, missouri and also mentioned north carolina. so there are so many different places that they need to play now to prevent the states from flipping in addition to traditional battlegrounds. making it very, very difficult, very narrow path for him to win the presidency. >> but also true that he might end up doing better than mitt romney. >> electoral college. >> got 206, if he wins ohio, wins florida. looks like he'll win iowa, he might be the most successful losing gop presidential candidate that we've seen over the last couple -- >> participation trophy for that? >> you don't. gets you nothing, but you know, i mean, you imagine that donald trump would brag about that. >> and contribute to the postelection debate. i won these other states.
before you jump in, this is part of this, too. having this conversation, count votes november 8th but the election won or lost today. won or lost today. president obama lost both times on election day voting but won with early votinglook at stats where we are. nearly 7.4 million votes cast already. 4.6 million from states we call battleground states. allimportant florida, more than 1.2 million cast. pie hillary clinton is there today. republicans have an edge? good news for trump especially the florida and ohio need utah. democrats though, important. an edge in arizona, colorado, iowa, north carolina and nevada. when you do the state-by-state, you still tilt advantage clinton as we watch this play out. >> yeah. it's obviously good news for trump there's an edge in early voting in florida. democrats like to bank a bunch of early votes and then maybe not lose the election day. but you know, i think that the problem has been for some time, for several cycle, the map is
tough for republicans. for trump, he has to run a perfect game for the rest of the -- i'm not sure if he took into account when the early voting started. his team may have, not sure he has and took account and changed strategy or messaging. so we're to 13 days, and i'm not sure how you get it done. >> what is the psychology of the candidate? you see him talking, your newspaper today, tapes released, excellent story in the nube newspaper, donald trump talking to a biographer. he doesn't like losing. >> if you lose a lot, nobody's going to follow you. you looked at as a loser. winning is a very important thing, and the most important aspect of leadership is winning's if you have a record of winning, people are going to follow you. >> it sounds simplistic and yet if asking, a., can donald trump pull this off in 1 day 13 days
rally people? epic if he can. after the election, if he loses, is he a loser? >> this is sort of the cruel irony for donald trump. that he hates losing and when he starts to lose he becomes increasingly erratic. instead of getting himself back to a winning place and disciplined message the more he is losing the more he becomes undisciplined, sort of becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. his aides thing, he's shown he can be disciplined about three weeks at a time. made the final 21 days or final 13 days that disciplined period he might have a shot. but it's an open question. >> excellent point. some around him say why we telling he's winning even when he's not to keep him optimistic. you live in a battleground state you can't escape the bruising ads. some designed to get you out to vote. others designed to convince you to stay home. you inherit lots of traits from your family. my ancestor, lady eleanor, made it big in textiles.
my great-grandfather bernard wrote existential poetry. and uncle john was an explorer. i inherited their can-do spirit. and their double chin. now, i'm going to do something about it. kybella® is the first of its kind injectable treatment that destroys fat under the chin, leaving an improved profile. kybella® is an fda-approved non-surgical treatment for adults with a moderate amount of fullness... or a bit more. don't receive kybella® if you have an infection in the treatment area. kybella® can cause nerve injury in the jaw resulting in an uneven smile or facial muscle weakness, and trouble swallowing. tell your doctor about all medical conditions, including if you: have had or plan to have surgery or cosmetic treatments on your face, neck or chin; have had or have medical conditions in or near your neck or have bleeding problems. tell your doctor about all medicines you take. the most common side effects are swelling, bruising, pain, numbness, redness, and areas of hardness in the treatment area. find a doctor at mykybella.com i served under president bush and obama. i fought the taliban. i was asked to form a global coalition
isil. when someone makes the comment that they know more about the islamic state or isil than do the generals, it implies a complete ignorance of the reality. but i believe secretary clinton really understands the threat that the islamic state poses to the united states and to the american people. and i believe she understands how to wield american power to ultimately defeat this threat and to keep us safe. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message.

welcome back. in close elections coming down to who votes and the who doesn't. a local tv station in philadelphia. >> i voted newspapererous times as a senate to spend money to build a -- a
barrier to try to prevent illegal immigrants from coming in. [ speaking in foreign language ] >> now, again, modest, a spanish language in philadelphia. 6% electorate in 2012 in the whole state of pennsylvania was latino. what is this about? if trump can keep it close it's about convincing a lot of latinos not to vote for trump. nothing pro-trump in the ad. stay home. can't trust her. talking being pro-immigrant. no. voted on the wrong side in the past. to me, don't want to call it
cynical, clever, designed to convince people to stay home. >> the trump camp clear running a two-pronged strategy. one is voter suppression. they'll say that out loud. their thought, trump, unlike a typical candidate won't do what you normally need to do, he's going to double down on the base. primary strategy and try to make hillary clinton so unpalatable her voters don't show up. >> and it goes back to the central issue with her. the trust issue. i think it's a clever ad. probably one that i'm surprised has not been replicated in other areas like nevada. very close race there or even in miami-dade county in florida. but clearly, not initially on immigration shows maybe something -- she says things differently than she believes. >> a lack of enthusiasm for her in communities. not enthusiasm equal to that of obama. fair way to put it. try to convince people to stay
home. don't come out for trump. just say home. another way, celebrities. morgan freeman, voice of god, pand clinton supporter. closing ad, here you go.
>> will it be the one respected around the world, or the one who frightens our alleys and el boldbol emboldens enemies? the one who's unprepared? a steady hand or a loose cannon? >> like the james earl jones. >> i'm terrified. >> james earl jones here at cnn. you want that voice on your side. >> not just the voice of god, literally the voice of god. a terrifying ad in that baritone-type voice. for trump, voter suppression would work if it wasn't trump and if the choice wasn't so stark. his language wasn't so stark in terms of the way he talks about african-americans, the way he talk answer muslims and latinos,
and i'm not sure you can selectively suppress the vote? right? who's top say he won't suppress his own voters as well? >> the thing about especially the latino vote. the theory was
you would see these giant jumps in registration and early voting in the latino community. you actually have not seen that up to this point. i think partly because many feel the contrast isn't that great because think, yeah, contrast but between two bad choices, the problem both of them keep running into. >> right. her ads, you keep hearing, unfit. everything she does, speeches, ads, donald trump is unfit. keep him, push him across the other side of the qualified line. questions, wikileaks, obama care, you don't get to those because you've already decided you can't get to donald trump. sneak one more in. joe heck, senate candidate for republicans in the state of nevada because of the "access hollywood" tape, i have a wife and daughters and can no longer support donald trump. democrats don't want to let him run. >> and donald trump says about
women who have abortions -- >> there has to be some perform of punishment. >> joe heck has already voted to make abortion a crime. so no matter what he says, joe heck is a lot closer to donald trump than you think. >> i think you're going to see that in other ads as well. morphing of candidates into donald trump. see if it works. move on. sneak peek into reporters notebooks. the view directly from trump supporters wyoming they say he'll win, even though polls say, maybe not. little miss muffet sat on a tuffet eating her curds and whey. along came a burglar who broke into her home and ransacked the place making off with several valuable tuffets. fortunately geico had recently helped her with homeowners insurance. she got full replacement on her tuffets. the burglar was later captured when he was spotted with whey on his face. call geico and see how much you could save
bloomberg poll showing trump up. marco rubio up ten, good news for him. in the future democrats would love to finish off marco rubio we know from wikileaks e-mailing the one hillary did not want to run against and trump the one she wanted to run against. fate intertwined in the future, picture how this fight plays out. see what happens on election day. >> three days in florida, donald trump did not speak the words marco rubio. >> if hillary clinton wins, she's obviously on pace to make history. being the first woman elected to serve as president, but women in the senate and house also could make history on november 8th as well. at 20% of the house now. about 20% in the senate as well. that could go up in the house to above 20% and possibly reach 25% in the senate. it's mainly powered by democratic candidates and possible democratic wins, kortes, masto in nevada. tammy baldwin in illinois and katie mcginty in pennsylvania. could be on pace to have two sort of strides in terms of
women in political, in the political arena. >> count those on election night. ashley? >> so traveling with donald trump talking to dozens of his supporters. all say losing in every national poll and all believe he's going to win on election day and point to the trump yard signs in neighborhoods. point to huge crowds at rallies and a silent majority not counted in the polls who may be too embarrassed to say they're trump supporters but will go into the voting booth, close the door and say, what the hell do i have to lose? are they living in an ultimate reality or modern day prophets and know something we don't? >> we'll find out. applaud loyalty. bernie sanders had bigger crowds, too. manu? >> whether or not to spend money to knock out of marco rubio in florida. a battle going on between democratic leaders whether or not some of that money could be effective, that this, at this late stage of the game. resistance. chuck schumer, incoming democratic leader, no.
focus on the other states. does not think it's a winnable race base and polling. thinks money better spent elsewhere. one person pushing for it, harry reid. outgoing senate democratic leader believes there could be a chance. some polls suggest murphy could be down as little as two points. an ongoing debate. >> close with this. republicans hope a new $25 million infusion from a republican superpac helps them across the finish line and a shaky effort to hold the senate majority. from a super pac aligned with mitch mcconnell. current spending choices, wee ve real vealing. money set to go to five states. pennsylvania, indiana, north carolina, new hampshire and missouri. but by far the biggest investment from the senate leadership pac is going to nevada. republicans trying to pick up the seat held by the man manu mentioned, retiring democratic leader harry reid. hard to not read that as
personal. a sign of mcconnell to send reid into retirement with an embarrassing loss at home. watch it all play out. thanks for sharing your time on "inside politics." see you back here same time tomorrow. "wolf" is up next after a quick break. mthat stuff only lasts a few hours. or, take mucinex. one pill fights congestion for 12 hours. guess i won't be seeing you for a while. why take medicines that only last 4
