9:00 am
>> have a great day everybody go out and vote here's "varney & company". >> good morning everyone. here we go. the vote has begun. hey, what happened to the blue wave you know the one that carry democrats back to full control of congress it appears to have flondered and the split decision is the best the left can hope for. we'll see. turnout, though, will be very strong the record for mid-materials was set in 1966 when% of the electorate voted it is possible we'll beat that turnout today. it is going to be a very long day. might be after midnight until we with find out who won the house
9:01 am
because some of the key raceses are in. the weather, well that's going to be a factor. not a good forecast for much of the northeast. the midwest, and the south -- as for the market look like it has taken a wait and see attitude no major move at least not at the open of trade aring the dow is going to be down 30, nasdaq down 4 nasdaq down 18 flat to lower. last night president trump wrapped up extraordinary series of rilelies 11 in 6 days his closing argument was vote republican to keep the the booming economy going. for the democrats, it was president obama who made the final argument. not hillary clinton. he told democrats not to be distracted by lies and fear mongering. politics and money that's us, "varney & company" is about to begin. ♪
9:02 am
>> republicans have created the best economy in the history of our country. and it's the hottest jobs market on planet earth. but everything we have achieved is at stake tomorrow. because they can take it apart just as fast as we built it it but i don't think that's going to happen based on what i'm seeing all over the place. [cheering] vote republican was the argument. president obama well he did the same thing for the democrats. roll that tape. >> to mention what's at stake in this election -- health care is on the ballot making sure working families get a fair shot that's on the ballot. [applause] what kind of -- politics we expect is on the ballot. how we conduct ourselves in public life is on the ballot.
9:03 am
>> not quite the sail energy i would say. joining us now fox news contradict tore a member of the wall street journal editorial board. so who do you think was more persuasive there? >> i'm more persuaded by president trump, however, i think that republicans have not made the sale not the economy -- that i think that they needed to sell. which they have. it's the economy tethered to achievements primarily the tax cuts. >> you don't think they made arlgt? >> when the tax cut passed it was a 4.4 gap and republicans i think thought the economy would take care that have. it would grow more popular. and it has it's narrow. but it was never been -- overwater and it has never ban major of people embracing tax cut. >> wait 67% polled in abc poll says economy is excellent or good and -- >> i agree with that but not at the timering to achievement of the tax cuts if you look at the
9:04 am
tax cut popularity on real clear politics you'll see that. they've been playing defense on that and added to health care, remember basically got their majority coming in we're going to get rid of obamacare, and they're weak in this election on this even though they have a pretty good record on trying to reform the health care system. the problem is obamacare still there kind of john mccain parting gift that they voted for that bill which would have stripped part of the preexisting got stuck with no vote on preexisting conditions hammered with now but didn't get a chance to fission anything which they would have if they would the chance. >> concentrate on president trump for a second. 11 rallies -- six days, whirlwind tour did he sway voters previously on the fence in other words did he bring people into his camp with that dramatic series of rallies? >> we'll find out look the historic -- >> i think he swayed some. but i think also that democrats
9:05 am
are energized in a way republicans were energized under barack obama. you know didn't get that much attention. but during obama years reallies made extraordinary gain something like 900 seats at the federal and state level. because people didn't like the direction of the country under obama. so democrats are definitely excited now. qeel see who comes out. we'll also see independents who are jump billion on this. >> consensus is split decision -- take the house reallies keep the senate. >> i'm with the consensus on that. >> you are. not generally consensus -- >> but i think on this because -- it's conceivable to republicans to win but they would have top win almost every swing district. and i think that's -- that's going to be a challenge. >> only time will tell. that's expression -- although i say one sorry certainty is i feel that as a resident of new jersey i'll wake up and bob mendez will be my
9:06 am
senator tomorrow. >> enough of that. thank you -- [laughter] do take a look at this headline. it's from "the wall street journal" and opinion piece, let me see if i can get the syntax right americans aren't just happy about the economy. what does that mean freeman wrote it -- what does it mean? >> what i was trying to say is they're happy if about the economy. it is oustanding but that's not the only thing they're happy about. i think that this is key to this election why it gis the republicans a chance to buck history here. obviously, the president's party usually takes a beating in the midterms. i don't think that's beginning to happen. i think it is mrp of that split decision you talked about, and it's -- it's not just the economy. i think sometimes the critics or the president or his supporters would say, well you -- you've got this great economy so you're willing to overlook other things, but i think when you look beyond strict polls ongs the the economy and direction
9:07 am
people are more optimistic there too. >> okay. have you seen these numbers? it's 401(k) millionaires, just at fiddlety a jump of 41% they have a bucks in their 401(k) just at fidelity 170,000 have a million dollars in their ira just at fidelity they're truly wealth spreading come on. >> these market gains in myc growth have a profound impact on our lives, obviously, this has been a great period since the 2016 election for investors. tremendous wealth creation but also for workers. we've talked about -- more jobs available than ever. first, largest wage increase in a decade. huge hiring last month, so all of the indicators productivity
9:08 am
finally moving in the right direction again this is the great story that republicans have to tell this fall. that it's a question as you discussed about how well they told it. >> it's not crumbs that are being districted to people. no tax cuts have given wealth an extraordinary degree of wealth to middle america. and i don't think they sold it well enough i don't think they did. >> i was looking at the 401(k)s, you know ten years ago in 2008 that number with a million was only 19,000. now it's ten times that amount. ten years later -- >> and there are 55 million americans who got a 401(k). so 35 million with an ira which is terrific. almost all of those people have seen if they're in stocks most people are in stocks in their ira or 401(k) they've gone up by a quarter and a third. in 18 months. thrnch you go what does that say? about wealth creation? >> don't forget pension funds who are also benefiting for this
9:09 am
rising market. so basically, everybody -- everybody's retirement plan is getting huge boost here. >> don't forget later on this morning about an hour's time latest jolt job openings at a record of 7 million there's nor jobs available than there are people looking for work at this point that's prosperity to me when it comes to economy. >> they've been right here phil give you that. >> success -- no they didn't say it happened by accident but because we took these steps but point you're making is that tax cuts, the benefit is not just the dollars people save on their own -- tax bill, right? it's a growing economy that's like compounded interest that giving them a lot more jobs, a lot more opportunity and a lot more wealth and there's no substitute people think it is for hedge fund managers and so forth but for ordinary americans. >> coif say i'm more optimistic than you guys because economy is baseline for what people vote on. >> i hope so.
9:10 am
all right i have -- [laughter] big storm brewing. it's actually arrived bringing rain it a big swath of the country. not good for voter turnout. >> this just in it rained stuart many people vote -- but this is -- >> you're killing me. actually there are numbers accuweather say when is it is rainy and damp it could effect turnout up to 20% you say a big storm system one moving through southeast and moving into the northeast there you can see there most of the country, though, is generally fair today so out west, california arizona just fine here's a quirky thing that research showed up is that if it is damp in new jersey republicans do better. bill -- maybe you vote -- >> mendez -- >> we shall see other funny thing in florida less people show up to vote if it is hot and muggy seriously, it is always hot and muggy in florida but there you go. >> turnout will be record numbers. already record. therethere will be special elecn

antitrust policy is the anecdote to top down regulation if you've got competitive markets you don't need so much top down regulation now the problem is in tech. there's a really crucial concept that we used to talk about which is predatory pricing that prices products lower than it cost to make theming medical them in oro squeeze them out. silicon valley predatory prices is its business model it gives the products away. and that is how it gets these enormous market shares. so you've got to do something about that and i think you can start by requiring google, facebook, all of the rest are of them to get rid of those companies that they've acquired as part of their growth. >> what worries me in particular -- is not the economics of it. it's the fact that guys who run facebook and google know absolutely everything about a couple of billion people and can direct to them what they want to see -- what they want to think about and read and view.
9:45 am
>> it is frightening. truly frightening and not just in terms of information. exactly the sail actually on amazon even though a lot of us say it is a great service we use it. look what they're doing when a company puts its products on amazon amazon is getting data about products what does it do? it makes its own products to compete to squeeze everyone out. this is where it is going. look they want to be monopoly but our job to stop them. >> okay look, facebook they've taken down accounts because they engaged in misinformation in these accounts on eve of the elections. but okay so they take them down down sites it is what whack moly cannot sensor charges model which is user generated content wages of platform anyone can put up what they want but if you do that you have no control and it

to the midterms christina is at the polls in kissimmee, florida, but you know what christina i'm not seeing any long lines. where are they? >> but that's because -- that's because i'm standing outside right now we're not allowed to go inside but there are people there and steady stream of voters coming through. it is during the day, it is a workday so we're expecting polls to be a little bit more crowded come the afternoon. but there's several dozen car you may not see bnld me there are people here walking in and out talking us to, they see me extremely motivated by the midterm election and that's even shows in the number of early voters. for florida the 5.1 million people who have already voted. that's already one-third more than one-third of the registered votes so that's incredibly good for democracy. that shows that people are motivated. we're talking about some of the issues you've got andrew gillum running for governor, he's going
9:52 am
as ron desantis representing republican party and people focusing on governor race saying it evolving arranged economy talking about jobs, income taxes no income taxes in florida so people don't want to see that changed and switch over to senate race here. that would be rick scott who was the current governor of florida. versus bill nelson the the incumbent from democratic party he's been in -- in that seat since 2001. so he's been around people are very familiar with all of these faces those that are focusing on senate race, say that it has to do with how washington is handle hadding things and they're motivate bid either changing thing or agreeing with president trump. there you go you have motivated people and we're all day covering latest for you guys. back to you. >> florida as always front and center in every election. that's the fact christina we'll be back to you later thank you very much indeed. staying on politics who is with us now former white house press secretary sean spicer. all right sean let's get right at it call it split decision? >> i think there's no question
9:53 am
that we hold the senate and house could be -- decided either very late tonight. or potentially in a few weeks. i mean, i think that -- we're going to know by 7:00, 8:00 where this is going you look at early votes both in indiana and in virginia. northern virginia, middle of virginia barbra scott taylor david if they go down it is a big night for democrats and they'll actually take a sizable majority i think. meaning ten, 15 seats. but overall -- >> i think look if i -- right now, i think that the headwind are that we keep the senate, and that they pick up the house. i do hold out hope that if they get out the vote effort is like it was in 2016 able to really flush those folks last minute, and that's thing for everybody sit arranged talking about this if you think about what the 2016 election came down to number of state we won michigan by .3%, and there is not a lot of margin error what that comes down to is
9:54 am
does that get them out. so polls tell you everything you want but at the end of the day if you're a committed voter and don't vote it doesn't count if you are a mean republican but vote and again that's where -- we all get lost in just looking at the polls. smg there are 36 million people who have done early voting. and look at that almost every one of those states it actually favors republican which is not normally the case. look at the delta in states when you look at number of democrats versus really that have voted by party registration. it is favoring democrats but reallies in almost everyone of the states and if it is not it is close. republican have been election day vote rs so big thing to fig out as we look at data is are we cannibalizing and moving in forward or are these new voters or low propensity voters actually getting out -- that wouldn't normally vote in midterm and we'll know more as votes come in whether or not -- >> but you're optimistic.
9:55 am
look i also a think stuart one of the things that has gotten lost in this conversation is setting expectations game. since 1982, the president's party has lost 5 seats in the senate in this president's first midterm and 38 seats in the house. we're not talking about that in the senate. we're talking about potentially picking up seats. so therefore, they -- not even a blue wave. it's best when you talk about a split decision that defy history. there's -- a cover of one of the major newspapers, today that says democrats poised to make history no actually they're poised to defy history because republicans by keeping the senate not only picking up -- seats would actually defy history. >> i see the point. do you think there's anybody undecided i ask the question because i want to know if president swayed anybody who is now in the middle sway to his side with 11 rallies in six day. >> i did because it's not that they weren't decided i think
9:56 am
question is did he get them to go vote? and did he make that case? if you look at the evidence that we've seen in terms of enthusiasm over past couple of months democrats as we're coming out of the summer had about a 12 point enthusiasm gap. that narrowed. it is the president who has been on the trail and city after city state after state firing up those people getting motivated. getting them make the -- >> caravan economy. >> all of it turned it. >> correct. i think what you want in the last few days in a election is momentum, intensity and president has provided that. >> it is exciting. [laughter] i like it. i have to say -- >> like look if you do this, this is like what you guys get excited about in the markets going nuts on election like this is -- super bowl right and -- >> we're excited about market and the election sean spicer you're all right. thanks for joining us, sir, appreciate it. coming up heading to polls we're about to get a very important read on the economy. it's all that job openings, is the last big piece of economic

♪ stuart: well like the graphic, like the music. 10:00 on the east coast right here in new york city. polls are open pretty much across the country. we're all over the potential out comes and what it means for you and your money. we're half hour into the trading session this election day the market is close to the high of the morning. we're up 75 points. we're about to get breaking news on the economy. it is all about job openings. i think we to the the number. what is the number. >> 7.009 million. slightly more than the month before. still more than looking for work. this is positive, very tight, very strong jobs market as we saw with nonfarm payrolls on
10:01 am
friday. stuart: 7.9 million job openings. for seven months in a row, more jobs available than people to feel them. ashley: exactly right. stuart: scott shellady, tjm managing director. strong, strong labor market, scott. >> the numbers on friday, stuart, a lot of guys thought it was rip your face off report. i didn't think so at all. it was not solid, offensive linemen, rugged, sturdy, three yards, a cloud of dust. those numbers show it. as long as we have those type of days, these type of numbers i'm not that concerned what really happens today. stuart: hold on a second, scott. want to go to ash about a story of foxconn in wisconsin. this plays to job openings. ashley: more openings than people to fill the openings. fox conn, hopes to hire 13,000
10:02 am
people in wisconsin, when it gets the factory up and running. the problem is, they don't have enough people to fill those positions. they're literally going to high schools, local colleges to try to woo workers to come to foxconn. it is definitely an issue. the unemployment rate in wisconsin, 3% in september. that is even below record low national unemployment. stuart: is there a story here about they want to bring in chinese nationals in management positions? ashley: they are. they're having a hard time persuading chinese engineers to go to wisconsin, for variety of reasons. one said, it was a too cold. stuart: speaks to super tight labor market. ashley: very, very tight. >> if you can't find workers you need in an advanced factory, with great conditions -- ashley: they will come from outside of wisconsin for high-paying jobs. illinois, minnesota, others come into wisconsin to look for the jobs. the actual local population is not there to support number of jobs that are open. stuart: tight labor market is
10:03 am
wonderful thing but rising wages. that's a fact. america as we all know headed to the polls today. yes the balance of power in the house in particular is at stake. the currently the gop has a 45 seat majority in the house. as for the senate, gop as you know, the gop holds slimmest of majorities i should say. congressman, darrell issa, republican from california. congressman, if the democrats take the house and the betting is they will do that, what happens, take us through it? >> i think the odds are they will take it. that is normally what occurs. the question is by how much f they take it by let's say five members, then nancy pelosi has to cobble together with more than twice that many people having said that they will not support her. so that is the first challenge. but once she does that, once a team of democrats do, they agreed on seeking to impeach the president, investigate until they can in fact indict people.
10:04 am
that is their foal. they made it very clear, that is what they will do if and or when they get the gavel. stuart: congressman, can they be able to put a stop to america's wonderful economy and our growth rate, could they stop it in its tracks? >> well, the thing the trump administration has done extremely well, they passed a few laws but they have taken away a thousands of regulations going to be reenacted or unwound this. this is the department of labor, so on. these were done, these were done in the appropriate way. so they can't reregulate. they won't have the votes to pass new laws. there will be ongoing fight where executive order and deregulation through the process will undoubtedly keep the economy moving forward. the challenge is that the additional tax cuts, tax cut 2.0, and 3.0, real changes that would take our economy to that next level, will probably be slowed by a nancy, will be
10:05 am
fought by a nancy pelosi house. that is a shame because if you just look at the stock market, as you do, in two years we've gone up over 7,000 points. the obama administration, which came in albeit at a low, only went up 10,000 in eight years. there is no question at all, given the kind of opportunity that we've had the last two years, we could easily go en10, 12, 15,000 more points and profits that go with that for our economy. as you said, we have negative unemployment effectively in the united states today. without major inflation. stuart: that is exactly what we've got. congressman, hold on a second, i want to digress about another story, about five critical races in california that could decide the balance of power in the house. ashley: they could. these are, four of these races are on the outside of orange county, traditionally a conservative outpost in and one

in central valley. most at risk, dana rohrabacher, running on 16th firm taking on harley ruda he has called for impeaching trump. this is 10th congressional district, central valley, large latino population, general denham, against democrat josh hearter, all voted for hillary clinton in 2016. interesting to see how the races go and the house makeup. stuart: darrell issa, you're from california, call the five tossup races please? >> jeff denham has been beating the odds in a nine-point plus democratic district for a long time because he and his wife reach out to the community, understand it, speak spanish an have been nothing but fabulous for every part of that distribute. so i show jeff as a keep. dana rohrabacher in the fight of his life but i think he
10:07 am
explained the real difference for the people of orange county and after millions of dollars, three to one spending against him, he is still slightly ahead in the polls. i call that as a yes. mimi walters are calling tossup. she has been a city councilwoman, a mayor, we keep here. my old district, to be candid was never in play, that one is not going to stay as republican. most of it actually was an area we took away from democrats in redistricting. the last one that i think is worth noting is ed royce's district. he is retiring. kim is an amazing candidate. she is so far ahead in spite of amazing amounts of money spent against her i think you will see thats as solid win against the democrats wish because the one thing they don't want is minority or woman getting elected and she is both. stuart: i think we'll all be up
10:08 am
late waiting for those five races in california to come in. i'm sure you're waiting for them as well. darrell issa, thank you, sir. we appreciate it. >> of course, stuart. stuart: let's get back to scott shellady. i want to go through various scenarios, get your reaction what the market will do. if there is indeed a split decision what happens on the market tomorrow morning? >> more of the same. i think the market will shrug it off and expecting that. i don't think that will affect the market. we'll have the slow grind higher as long as we continue numbers we've gotten as of late, especially last friday. stuart: second scenario, what if there is democrat sweep, they win the house and the senate, what happens? >> initial knee-jerk reaction to the downside. it will be slightly negative. but at the end of the day the changes will be slow and economy will be so strong, trump is doing a good job leading, we'll continue as we are, maybe not quite as much but still not that bad for the market. stuart: last one, suppose the republicans keep the house and keep the senate and increase
10:09 am
their majority in the senate, then what? >> only other better thing would be some sort of deal cut with china. i think the market would like that. stuart: you're saying this election today doesn't mean that big a deal for the stock market going forward regardless of the outcome for the election? >> no, i don't think so. i still say that with the numbers that we're seeing, you know has done such a great job with consumer confidence and ceo sentiment. that will not erode right away. maybe numbers will not be as strong but they will be good and that will be good for the market. stuart: scott, thank you very much. >> okay. stuart: check the big board, we're off the highs of the day. we're up 50 points right now. 25,500 is the level. check the big techs, please. certainly apple, new it pads and macs hit the shelves tomorrow. one of the biggest gainers on the dow which is microsoft up

2/3 of 1%. not a great deal of movement but the big techs are up. look at ge selling its lighting division to private equity firm american industrial partners. we don't know how much they're selling it for but they're up $9.40 a share on ge. where is the price of oil as of right now? $63 a barrel. by the way, can't put it up on a screen, but average price of gas is down to 2.75, down 27 straight days. that is good news indeed. election day, we're on it of course but we have plenty of news to cover for you. president trump is looking into, looking at antitrust at amazon, google and facebook. we'll have a guest on the show who says there is definitely a case to be made. >> shoe defense secretary mathis meeting with his chinese counterparts all about trump's meeting with xi at the g20 later this month. i want to know if this is a

10:16 am
democratic base, if i may unsettle you, stuart, has actually moved to the left of barack obama. stuart: that is unsettling. >> yeah. i thought so. we'll see. this is a, this is a fascinating , important, still unpredictable day. stuart: a tug-of-war, isn't it? seems like president obama represents, i won't say the old guard, that is not accurate but the establishment of the democrat party as opposed to younger up starts way to the left. i don't think president trump fired up way to the left. that is my opinion. >> that is probably right. there are others out there trying to do that. if i may say an example you're concerned about, the whole u.s.-china economic relationship. so president trump has taken a more aggressive position. in a strange way, it is supported by some of the left of
10:17 am
the democratic party who generally have been anti-trade. president obama was generally, speaking, pro-trade, in fact, negotiated the trans-pacific partnership agreement which it was a multinational trade agreement with the asian countries. so it's a bit, it is a bit odd. you're right, the democratic party has now moved beyond the obama years. >> much to my distress. that is another story. >> yeah. stuart: what happens if the democrats take the house? maxine waters chairs the financial services committee. >> right. stuart: adam schiff chairses the intelligence committee. mr. nadler chairs judiciary. maxine waters, chairs financial services. you don't seem enthused about this. >> i'm co-chair of a group called no labels, in the midst
10:18 am
of all the right-left, republican-democrat, we're supporting a group of republicans and democrats, mostly in the house who we think will be problem solvers. that is, from the left or right they find their way to the middle to negotiate to actually get something done. those people you mentioned are unlikely to do that. so if the democrats take the house, i think the main difference will be that, they will be investigating, issuing subpoenas to the administration but, honestly, if they pass a left democratic agenda, it is going nowhere, because it takes three to tango in washington, the house, the senate, and the white house. stuart: but, senator, they would have leverage when the next budget debates takes place. democrats would surely say we have to raise taxes on business to pay for all the stuff we want. that gives them real leverage. >> that is a good insight. in other words there are some things the government has to do, like the budget that will force some kind of an agreement
10:19 am
between let's say the democrats who control the house, republicans in the senate and the white house. and now it is hard to imagine that the republicans in the senate and president trump would accept an increase in taxes. so the democrats better come up with something else they want as part of that bargain. more likely to be spending. stuart: i'm almost out of time. great to see you. >> great to see you, stuart. stuart: are you enjoying retirement? >> i am. obviously i keep my finger in public policy. stuart: clearly. >> but, i was privileged, honored, blessed to be 40 years in elective office. it was time for the promiseed land. stuart: [laughter]. ashley: hallelujah. stuart: rough-and-tumble, the excitement it all? >> every now and then i get up in the morning watch tv, i wish i was there, i wish i could have called mccain, whatever. >> do you watch us? >> it passes quickly.

hold 195 seats in the house. republicans 240. katie pavlich, fox news contributor. "town hall" editor. call it, call it. >> you want me to call it? that is a big task. stuart: because the consensus is it is a split decision, democrats return to power in the house, republicans keep the senate. >> we've been saying it all along, midterms are about base elections. the republicans are likely to keep the senate if not gaining seats there. the house is a tossup. could be anywhere from 40 plus seats or maybe republicans keep the house. bottom line we have a ton of early voting numbers. in florida, for example, early voting outpaced all of the votes that are cast in 2014. amazing. now you have to gauge that. are these early voters who are new voters or are they voters who used to vote on election day simply casting a vote early. which means there are not additional voters. it is simply a wash. stuart: you will not call it? >> i will not call anything. i think we all learned our lesson calling these things but very much looking forward to fox
10:32 am
business's coverage, fox news, and "town hall." stuart: i will chuck two cents here. i think a split decision is likely but i'm cautiously optimistic that a very high turnout of trump's base will pull him through and that the gop can keep the house. i don't think that is beyond the realms of possibility. >> i'm very interested to see how president trump's work pays off or not. he has done more than any president in history to be on campaign trail. he announced in the summer he would be on the campaign trail, four or five days a week. everybody thought that was a lot. he has been, 10 rallies in four-days. we'll see if investment there pays off. it will certainly in the senate. keeping the senate is much more important than the house at this point, you can get things through like nominations, court system. a lot of his agenda can still remain even if the house foes to the democrats. stuart: by the way i had eric trump on the show sitting right there about an hour ago, i said where does your dad get energy

10:34 am
lot of young, young people coming to colorado simply to smoke marijuana legally, not necessarily to get jobs. crime rate has gone up a lot of placeses that have legalized marijuana. there is a balance here. on the economic side you're absolutely right. there are differences between each state on the ballot with the issue, with kind of legalization, utah there are different standards for what you're allowed to do with marijuana than there are in north dakota, smoking it, eating it, all those things i don't really know much about but there are details in the propositions on ballot people have to pay attention to. stuart: let's get at it, shall we, legalized for recreational purposes on national basis yes or no? >> i think that would not be on the table in the near future. stuart: i said, legalized recreational. >> i'm a product of d.a.r.e. i will say no. stuart: katy, straight to the point. we like that. >> my mom is watching also. probably.

10:36 am
we'll create a comparative business. is that legal? that is an interesting case we haven't tested. google is something entirely. the european union basically persecuted them. stuart: okay, my problem with these companies especially google and facebook, that they know absolutely everything about you and i and maybe a billion other people. they feed us stuff to read, to think. to watch on tv on our little screens. i don't like to see that kind of extraordinary power, given to two or three multibillionaires. that is my problem with all of this. >> fair enough. but that is not an antitrust problem. stuart: i agree. >> that is more a privacy problem. remember subliminal in the advertising of early days of tv. flash an ad so quickly you didn't know it was there, but may impression on your eye, your brain. then you were in favor of the product. congress has to speak on this. it's a very complex issue. but we have to start to unbundle
10:37 am
it. because they simply are too much into our lives. after all this get up and go, you know, facebook was looking to read what was inside of our bank accounts, to see our transactions. they were asking banks to partner with them on that. google right now is letting some of its app developers read your email. they say they wipe it clean of you know, of your identity, but look how it correlates with other behavior. that's nonsense. i don't want anybody reading my email. that is ridiculous. i agree with you but it is not an antitrust issue. stuart: do you think a solid antitrust case could be made against amazon, and/or google that would result in a conviction of and splitting them up? is that all possible or pie-in-the-sky dreaming? >> that is three tests. make a convincing case, i think in both cases you can mount a case. win? you might win a some sort of limited action with regard to

11:04 am
rough mood of late. and therefore i think getting past these midterm elections and getting the expected result is a really good result as far as getting a chance to move on. stuart: let's suppose another scenario that republicans keep the house and expand their lead in the senate. what happens on the market tomorrow? >> initially that's going to be great news. i could imagine a 250 or 350-point rally in the dow similar to what we thought towards the end of november 8, 2016 in the market saw things are getting cleared we got the result we got in the presidential election. to kind of maybe sell them to because i'm not sure that's going to last too long haired >> last time the democrats reposting it. what then? >> look out below. the markets will get concerned about the trump agenda. there's going to be rhetoric from the love spread all over the news they present media. i would be very careful with stocks going forward and that is why just as a precaution, meaning an event like that possibly occurring would start

11:29 am
of his personal politics, he is very shrewd and if you look at the polling, 90% of americans are in favor of medical use marijuana. 60% of their rental is in every major swing state whether it's michigan, ohio, florida, pennsylvania, new mexico. the list goes on. they are to have some form of marijuana policy. stuart: what you're talking about here is reclassified marijuana from a class one drug along with tara when and cocaine so banks could finance the marijuana industry. if the president did that it would be good news for your business, wouldn't it? >> yes. some form of rescheduling general is taking would be very positive for the industry but we don't even have to have rescheduling because right now there's any legislation. the safe banking not, the small business equity act in the state factor all somewhere meandering
11:30 am
through congress and what this election cycle we may well see some of those come through and be voted on prior to 2020 irrespective of whether democrats or republicans take this election. stuart: you think the president will move in this direction because the polls because the polls have moved in this direction. there is significant operation -- opposition to this. it's not a universally in favor of it. >> you're absolutely right, doer. there isn't universal support. however, it's more of a generational issue than it is a republican democrat issue. if you look at this election cycle, we have 57 retirements. people like john conyers are being replaced by richey got to leave, so we are replacing an 89-year-old man with a 42-year-old woman. most people under the age of 50 understand the importance of medical marijuana in adult use
11:31 am
marijuana. if you even look across congress already you have large bipartisan support for medical cannabis. stuart: adrian, thanks for joining us. we'll see you again in. that graphic means we're going to turn to control congress elections. the first polls close at 7:00 eastern in our next guest will have a very long night watching all the returns coming in. he has our next guest, fox news politics editor chris dye wool. welcome back to the show. >> don't make me feel tired already. we've got to have a lot of energy. stuart: you're on the decision desk. take me inside the war room, just take me through the night i was going to unfold. people don't want an election day.
11:32 am
we had to do something radical. we'll know more about the electorate are people who didn't vote. we will be faster and better as a result of this. and by 9:00 or 8:30, 9:00 we'd be able to predict the results of all of those states that have come up on the screen. there is the most probable scenario with 35 seats in the house, not to take a thorough majority. we will know we are in that space and then i will sort of
11:33 am
crying on as we go through. there's three other scenarios. one is the next most probable that there's a lot of new democratic voters and we missed them in the polls have missed them in the state but nevada, texas and other places where there's huge increases in turnout that that happened. if democrats over performed, will know very early. we'll know on the east coast states was happening. conversely there's still a and republicans stick together. it's a unity question for republicans. if they stuck together and took the coalition of more affluent and coming out in force, we will see that early and with that made going to shape up to be. stuart: looking at the polls come in the establishment polls we've seen the consensus is the democrat take the house on the republicans pick up an extra one or two seats in the senate.
11:34 am
that's the state of play from the polls as we are seeing them now. >> that the expected outcome. if you break down the last midterm cycles. we are going to find an awful lot about 7:00. this voter analysis. >> will get text e-mails from everyone i know. we will characterize who's
11:35 am
voting in who's not voting. we will teach you. we'll absolutely tcu. stuart: who you are going to have a very long night, but it sounds like you're going to have fun. >> were going have a blast i promise. there are more than 7 million job openings. come on in print image of it. that is a signal of an extremely strong and tight labor market, is it not? >> stuart come and visit is official and a barack obama's economy. 10 to 20 million americans put on the job market after the great recession. they are going to let that stuff.
11:36 am
that's the american dream. stuart: wages have to rise. wages or working conditions. they have to get better. if you've got such a tight market, more jobs available in you've got to attract people. i would imagine wages are set to go up even more, aren't they? >> wages are going up at a healthy rate of 3% and another wonderful thing happens when people's dark to be paid more to become even more productive because they're being paid so much. they require that they innovate ways to work. that's the even further accelerate economic growth. you can add the obama era sitting on the sidelines as the story of 2016 and before. >> i go back to the 1990s when bill clinton was the president and people were talking about the goldilocks economy. not too hot, not too cold. how would you describe today's economy? >> not too hot, not too cold. that implies the economy.
11:37 am
people are getting better at working. we don't want to stop that. the idea we should stop that was given to us from keynesianism in every 10 keynesianism tried to take the punch bowl away of resulted in something like that edition of the great recession. stuart: looks like this calendar year 2018 will get a growth rate for the year between the 3.5% and 4% roughly in that range. what's your projection for next year? >> first of all that the first time since 2006 we will does not. it's an embarrassment on the economic history that this is the first 12 years we've ever had 3% growth every year. hats off to the american economy for achieving none in 2018. after that i can expect more of the same and if we lower taxes more, 10-ton of regulations and really get the free trade going through all these trade deals, 4%, 5% of the american norm.
11:38 am
>> will take it. thanks for joining us. we'll see you again, soon. this is the time we check other markets. bitcoin 6400 bucks a coin for the price of gold $1200 an ounce. we haven't seen much change recently. sixty-two dollars a barrel in $61 a barrel. that is a seven-month low. as o'neill comes down, gas declined sharply with our national average of $2.75 per gallon down 27 straight days. california people are voting whether to repeal an increase in the eighth gas tax. it doesn't look good. looks like the gas tax days. we'll talk to california's republican gubernatorial candidate john cox. i want to know what happened with the gas tax repeal. president trump in 11 states in a whirlwind tour leading up to the election, the ditty sway voters who were on the fence?
11:39 am
we are on it. >> republicans have created the best economy in the history of our country and it the hottest jobs market on planet earth. but everything we have achieved is at stake. - [narrator] at athene, we think it's time for the financial world to stop acting the same old way. in today's complex world, you need a partner that is driven to provide you with better solutions for these challenging times, one that is willing to disrupt the industry, and break free from conventional thinking. (thudding) we are a different kind of financial company. we are athene, and we are driven to do more.
11:40 am
11:41 am
>> "the new york times" accusing president trump of campaigning on division and fear. eric trump told us earlier today that they still do not under and why his father was elected. >> in your time to give my father 1.9% chance of winning. they do not understand the country. they do not understand all of our jobs. they went to china, all these other places. we lost 70,000 factories between 2001 and 2016 in this nation. those jobs disappear. how is he going to bring these jobs? it's not going to happen. abracadabra.
11:42 am
i landed. i saw my leg did not look right. i was just finishing a ride. i felt this awful pain in my chest. i had a pe blood clot in my lung. i was scared. i had a dvt blood clot. having one really puts you in danger of having another. my doctor and i chose xarelto®. xarelto®. to help keep me protected. xarelto® is a latest-generation blood thinner that's... proven to treat and reduce the risk of dvt or pe blood clots from happening again. in clinical studies, almost 98% of patients on xarelto® did not experience another dvt or pe. xarelto® works differently. warfarin interferes with at least 6 of your body's natural blood-clotting factors. xarelto® is selective, targeting just one critical factor.
11:43 am
don't stop taking xarelto® without talking to your doctor, as this may increase risk of blood clots. while taking, you may bruise more easily, or take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto® can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. it may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. get help right away for unexpected bleeding or unusual bruising. do not take xarelto® if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. before starting, tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures and any kidney or liver problems. learn all you can... to help protect yourself from another dvt or pe. talk to your doctor about xarelto®. stuart: amc the movie channel jay and i should say, their subscription plan has taken a milestone. they're going to have millions of subscribers who pay 20 bucks a month to see up to three movies a week. this comes as its rival movie pass has been losing subscribers amc stock is actually down to
11:44 am
.5%. back to the midterms, president trump is back at the white house today. in the history of our country. the hottest jobs market on the planet earth. everything we've achieved is at stake tomorrow because they can take it apart just as fast as we built it, but i don't think that's going to happen based on what i've been all over. stuart: much luck with us, chairman of the american conservative union. i do believe president trump got to his base and really fired them out. the ditty change any minds of those in the middle? independent or undecided. >> i think he did mostly because the former american president wants to have the business of
11:45 am
america is business. when the economy is this smoking hot, stuart, and makes people realize that their vote matters. the key thing that president trump did is try to convince trump voters from 2016 to do something most of them probably don't them probably down to which his boat in the midterm election. if those low propensity voters turn out today, republicans could have a big night. stuart: 36 million early voters in 2016. are you seeing the same things. more states are marking -- making it more convenient to vote early. what's good for republicans is a lot of the polls that started to narrow at the end were broader couple days ago. maybe the early voting will prove -- the analytics are
11:46 am
referring to shows that people in republican leaning precincts and registered republican and to be voting a higher percentages which is a big deal for republicans because we tend to be election day voters. stuart: you see this and the inside. you know it's going on from the inside or the can and this is that it's democrats when the house republicans increase in the senate. is that your take? >> you know, that's the most likely scenario you could say, but i think republicans could have an awfully big night in the senate. i think, you know, they could add two or three or more republican votes in the senate which is a big deal especially if we have another supreme court vacant the which i think has to be pretty likely in the next 18 months. on the house side the republicans are definitely in the mix. they just have to win 80% of these tight races. they'd have to really nearly run the table to hold the majority. it's a tough thing to do, not impossible, just tough. stuart: i wonder if you can explain florida to me.
11:47 am
what is with the gubernatorial race there? andrew dillon is flat out progressive with them very, very strong ideas on taxation and public services and he's winning. i don't get that. >> i guess we don't know until we count the vote. statewide races in florida tend to be decided by a point in a house so you have a big senate race there with governor rick scott and bill nelson and then you have this governor's race. when i first saw what gillam stood for i thought there's no way the people affordable support that. i'm waiting to see what the -- stuart: at some long item will be up all night to both of us. we're going to love it away. >> it's like the super bowl for
11:48 am
me, stuart, although a lot more important. stuart: you've got it. thanks for joining us. we'll see you again later. check this out. video from president trump's rally in missouri last night. a woman collapsed and the crowd begins again amazing grace issue is due to medical attention. the lady is okay. you can hear amazing grace. they suspended for 15 minutes. 122 is level and ibm. just a few weeks ago was on 50. the profit fell short. we demand in europe, stocks to represent. sure this would be a dunk. voters would vote to repeal it. i want to know what happened. i'll ask the republican for governor momentarily.

the polls show if you tell people it's the gas tax it wins two to one. there's a good chance. stuart: now you're way behind kevin newsom in the gubernatorial race. i think you're 15 to 20 points behind. you think you've got a chance? are these polls wrong? >> maybe you should ask president hillary clinton that question or maybe better to california asked governor tom bradley also he is deceased. you can't really ask him. everybody thought mayor of los angeles tom bradley in 1982 is going to win. he was way ahead in the polls. you know, and they coined the term the bradley effect and i think that's what's going to happen today. i think people are going to aquinas the newsom effect. people said they're going to vote for him but they are going to come out. my answer to this and the message is help is on the way, stuart. people really need help in this
