and the political fallout of all of this. of a one-stop shop where you can gauge later on far market reaction to what happened. our own futures reaction to whatever happens from all angles. on fox business. >> dana: hello, i'm dana perino along with laura ingraham, it's 5:00 here in new york city, and this is "the five" ." fox news alert, it's decision date in america. control of congress is up for grabs as millions of americans cast their ballots. what is turning out to be historic midterm elections. the first polls are closing in less than two hours from now. we will also tell you about the key toss-up races to keep an eye on tonight, plus we are debuting our brand-new fox news voter analysis results. we have a lot of ground to cover this hour. jesse is getting rained on, so
let's bring in bret baier, anchoring tonight's special election coverage. they are at the election had produced. how is it going tonight? >> so far, so good. it is going to be a whole new ball game with this information that we have. 125,000 people pulled. used to be about 25,000. >> you look at the early voting totals. more than 38 million americans have either early voted or have absentee ballots. and you are looking at probably historic early voting. and we might looking at historic mid voting when we get to the end of the night. >> dana: we are going to take it around the table if that's okay, and everyone will ask a question. i will start with jesse. >> jesse: because we know nothing at this point, we can do is really speculate. i wonder if i can grasp at some straws here. you hear things like oh, in this heavily republican district in indiana, the lines are wrapped a mile around, or you know i
showed up to vote in traditionally a democratic leaning district in north carolina, and there was no one there. can you take these anecdotes to the bank ever? in your experience? are these just kind of one-off's that don't really set a trend. >> bret: ever since 2010, those are usually individual stories about this race. i think broadly, we can look at numbers on the early vote and actually have the numbers, but as far as the anecdotal whose showing up, you know you get stories all over the place. i think you are going to see in a place like missouri that doesn't have early voting, a lot of turnout, long lines, and i bet you're going to have some people voting late into the night and polls staying open. >> martha: what we are definitely all picking up on is just a general enthusiasm and an interest in this election. the likes of which the only time we thought was in the presidential election back in 2016. so there's clearly enthusiasm.
we see it and feel it in our conversations with everyone out there that there is just an incredible amount of interest in politics in general, in the president, certainly, and in the selection, absolutely. >> dana: all all right, laura ingraham, airgas year. her first time on "the five." >> laura: i'm very nervous. >> dana: are you? >> laura: i'm not a guest any time. i am going to give you all of my rain. is it still the case, brett and martha that whatever happens tonight, america is a divided nation. we are divided along cultural lines, divided around political lines. obviously, we are a nation that is more diverse when it comes to ethnicity and backgrounds. but will this nation in any way be less divided after this midterm election? speak to you that is a great question. i don't think whatever the result is that it's going to
lead to less division. in fact, if anything, it may turn the other way. if democrats win the house, and that is an f. it is not one. if they pull off 23 net gains, they are going to have to make a decision, whether they are investing in the present end of this administration or trying to negotiate for big things they want. infrastructure, other big-ticket items. >> martha: i think also this is the first moment that those who are resisting the president have an opportunity to vote on that, and that may be some sort of cathartic experience for people who are in that camp. but then they're going to get a chance to see how they like it, how that feels if they have a democratic house. is it going to create logjams. that will play out in and of itself. but i think at least now, people who feel like they want to register dissatisfaction with the present will get a chance to do it for sure. >> bret: over the short answer
is no. >> dana: one williams, your best question. >> juan: to me, it feels like a trump's name might as well be on the ballot. it is the case with a gallop showing right now, 60% of americans say they want to send a message about president rouhani. and right now, when you look at the numbers, it is about 41% approval. and for a president historically, you are going to lose seats. about 30 plus. do you have any sense right now what the margin might be in the house? >> bret: no. we don't. we are going to look at the state and probably about 10 minutes. by the way, you will see it on the bottom of your screen. it is going to start showing different facts and figures coming from this voter analysis that we have been doing. but we don't, juan. and you are ready, historically, the power loses about 33-35
seats in a midterm election. this could be different. it could be obviously more than that in a blue wave, and the caveats is it could fall short of the 23. one thing is clear, there is a weakness in the rust belt. that may be tied to some of the tariff situations. some of the backlash for that particular policy. >> dana: iowa is definitely a place to watch. there are a couple of big elections there tonight. all right, i saved the best question for you all for last. this is greg gutfeld, everyone. >> greg: hi. it is more of an analysis on a question. so obama, during one of his midterms, he lost like 60 plus seats, so if the democrats win 30, it is actually kind of a win for republicans, and it is only a temporary reprieve because in two years, though seats are going to be up. he is going to get the whole base out there, so it is very
possible that those 30 seats are like a rest stop on the freeway to. there is no way getting around it. it is not actually a win. especially when you spent two years doing nothing but planning for this day. if you getting dumped after losg 30 pounds. >> martha: i think this is the argument you're going to hear from the white house for short. exactly like that, i'm sure. [laughs] >> greg: thank you. >> dana: all right, bret and martha, thank you for being with us and for anchoring our coverage tonight. we will see you all night long. thanks very much. we will see you in a bit. >> dana: we are not leaving yet. we are going to have lots more analysis. laura, any other thoughts as we head into this election night? >> laura: depending on what happens in the house, if it's close, and i think it probably will be closer than people think, these republicans -- this
wrath of republicans who announce their retirement. he is heading the house financial committee. they might look back and think maybe that decision to retire was a little bit premature. because if it's close, they probably would have won back a large margin or would have made it even closer. so i think people might have prematurely announced their retirement. >> dana: they might have, but people who love term limits, people deciding to retire might not be a bad thing. >> laura: the majority is better than that, though. >> juan: but i think the reason that they decided to retire was not necessarily because they thought that they would lose but they are trump republicans. >> laura: pick up their marbles and go home. >> juan: i'm not comfortable, i'm not going to defend the guy, jump on the bandwagon, which is what most republicans have done. i just want to go back to numbers that we know of at this point that early people -- 35 million -- this is incredible. 35 million people have either
voted early or cast absentee ballots. in 2014, the last midterm that we had, it was only 14 million, so it is more than double the number. again, an indication of how energized the american people are for these midterms. >> dana: jesse pointed out to me on the commercial break a lot of republican races, republican candidates did very well in the last 48 hours leading into what are tight races. everything has a nice edge, but republicans are doing better in some places. >> jesse: we did a deep dive on some of the latest polling data, and if you look at indiana and arizona, missouri, florida, even montana, you saw a real republican surge within the last two days of pulling. now people that for instance, donnelly is now down in two races. rick scott was up in two races. mick sally is looking very strong. and now within the margin of error, democrats in montana. so it looks like the republicans
served late, and donald trump's latest campaign blitz and to all of these key races may have paid off dividends. >> dana: and good numbers on friday. >> greg: it is weird how much you have to ignore in order to vote democrat. you have to ignore the job boom, you have to ignore the economy, wages. you have to ignore and improved world in terms of foreign policy. you have to ignore the fact that an overwhelming number of people in america are happy. this is why the resistance is so deceptive because their leaders are wealthy enough that they can actually rollback things that are good for the rest of america. they hate that you are happy. it is really kind of sad and disgusting that they are taking it so personally. >> dana: we are not set or discussing here. >> greg: well, i am. >> dana: a little bit. all right, of next, will the final push to voters pay off? that is next on "the five" life

>> jesse: president trump hitting the trail hard yesterday, making his final pitch to voters. >> but the key is you have to go out there. democrats produce mobs. republicans make jobs. if you want more caravans, if you want more crime, vote democrat. together, we have made extraordinary progress, and we are just getting started. this is the greatest political movement in the history of our country. what you have done. the greatest. >> jesse: for more of what is going on at the white house, let's go to john roberts. >> jesse, good afternoon. first of all, look at this beautiful sunset right behind us here right outside of our lab location. isn't that pretty? waiting for the president to get into the election watching evening, which is what he is going to be doing. he has invited friends and
family over for the early results. the president believes there is nothing else that he could have done to pull republicans across the finish line. he has had 11 rallies over the last six days. that is all that he can do. he took to twitter as well. now they just have to sit back and look at the results. the feeling around here is they will probably pick up a couple of seats in the senate, so they will take control of the senate and extend their margin. a big question here tonight, what happens in the house? the predictions are that the democrats are going to take control of the house. but a lot of people remember that this time in 2016, we were getting briefings and how all the exit polls that showed that we are probably going to declare hillary clinton winner of the presidency. about 11:00 at night, then everything started to turn around. at about 9:00 in the evening, and they are wondering if that might be the case in 2018. although projections, they seem to suggest that that won't happen. here at the white house, they
are holding out hope for may be a minor miracle sometime this evening. i don't know if they will get it, jesse. there is no question. you heard martha and bret talking about it. so much enthusiasm in this midterm election, which is so unusual. so many people coming out and early voting. a lot of people coming out today to vote, despite the weather. so we will see. it's going to be an interesting night. >> jesse: thank you, john. all right, laura, the republicans have held the house for 20 out of the last 24 years. you know, they only lost in 2006 for some of the scandals and the iraq war was dragging on. but they got it back after pelosi and obama overreached. do you see right now, no scandal, do you see any reason substantively for republicans to lose the house? >> laura: i mean, i think when you look at these ads across the country, and i have had a chance to travel across the country a lot in the last three or four weeks, there is one issue that they did focus on, and its health care. so if you're going to hurt the
kid with cancer, you're going to hurt the grandmother who needs a special operation. so it is back to the scare tactics and obamacare. that is the main thinker that is the one policy they really focus on. the separation of the kids at the border, i don't think that most people are going to vote about that. that was the one issue they honed in on that may deliver some dividends. i think that most of the resistance voters out there are resisting the tone of trump. they are resisting, as bret said, his personality. it's like they are putting blinders on. there is never a better time to be an american than today. i think in my lifetime, even during reagan. i think if you want to work, you're going to work. if you want to make a better living and you follow the rules. you don't go to jail or something, you are going to make a better living if you want that. but the left is so jacked to send message to the president that oh, no, we are not going to be fold again. we were embarrassed in 2016. we are going to embarrassed emu
know. charts and numbers and a gdp, the storytelling, the art of the storytelling sometimes is lost on republicans. maybe if it doesn't go the way that the republicans won, they can learn a little bit about the storytelling of this great recovery. >> jesse: what do you think, did they tell the right story, dana? >> dana: it remains to be seen. when we get the fox news voter analysis, we will see. the electoral college can save you. it really is a majority vote. some of them are very close. and a lot of the republicans i decided to retire, won by a little bit. looking at steve heller and his race. that is not a district, that is the whole state of nevada. i think the fact that there are some good candidates on the republican side does help them. good candidates on the democrat side in the house, particularly appeared 172 veterans are running for congress right now, so some of them are going to win. there is going to be some
willingness by some of these people to actually work together. let's just say that the democrats take back the house. are they going to deny working with president trump on an infrastructure bill that they have wanted for a long time? will they deny an immigration deal that the president might offer to them? will they deny an opportunity to go against control of pharmaceutical companies culture market is something that the white house is pushing forward. so i think a lot remains to be seen. it is not the worst thing in the world for anyone to have midterm, it is a way station. >> jesse: we will see some wheeling and dealing. to your point about the idea of working together. i think it is very hard to do because once you go full hitler, it is hard to go back. if you've been spending two years calling a guy and sane, calling him racist, calling him sexist, and calling him hitler, all of a sudden you're angry bases going to go wait, now you want to work with hitler? it's like telling your kids out there is a monster under your
bed. now we are having the monster over for dinner. it doesn't work. >> jesse: what do you predict on that front, juan? >> juan: democrats will have to take a measure of what works for them and what doesn't. when the american people are asked about this midterm election, what they say is donald trump's name might as well be on the ballot, a referendum on trumpet. >> greg: that comes from republicans too. >> juan: let me finish. 34% of the 60s that you know what, we are voting to oppose donald trump you're 26% said that -- "the wall street journal" and nbc are saying that 15%, 59%, jesse, say they want a great deal or some change in the way that donald trump is managing and leading this country. so i think that when you look at that, you understand that it is -- not that many seats, or gee whiz, he has done so much. people say that tax deal, that was a bad deal for me.
>> dana: it's not -- let me speak for myself. i had that job. it is not spin. it is analysis. >> juan: right. but i am telling you a lot of people especially on the health care issue that laura was talking about are saying hey, you take away the individual mandates, you say you're going to repeal and replace and you don't do it. you say you're going to build a wall, you don't do it. keep going. >> jesse: already, we have to go, but there is no spin here. details when we return on our special election day coverage from fox square. ♪

>> you know, the midterm elections used to be like boring, didn't they? do you even remember what they were? you say midterms, people would say what is that? it is the hottest thing. >> greg: the midterms are really more like spring break for under told deming to mike older children. they see nothing but evil in trumpet. thanks dems gone wild. now they are even stripping. >> so to like your life depends on it. i will be at the headquarter campaigns, we will be at -- i will be at uc irvine. >> greg: that is an actual adult. so exactly two years ago, these kids got their blind rage on and never took it off. there was no pleasing them, especially if they are well off enough not to be affected by the job market. they don't need trump the way that the rest of america does, and trump does make a great target. he is a law & order guy.
it is one word. it boundaries. boundaries exist to bring forward goal. wyoming is just another chunk of the planet. add offenses and you get order and logic. you need them for a country's identity. and you need them as law. it allows people to lead free lives without harm. what's the problem? any law & order stance becomes heartless because the left separates the process, which is enforcing laws, from the results, which is creating order. so military, cops, i.c.e. they are just big meanies. it is childish to believe that they don't lead to better lives. it is adults versus those with a teenage view of the world. and even though the kids know that without grown-ups, they would be dead. who cares? because the adults will always be around, hurting feelings, making life possible. kids just have a hard time forgiving grown-ups were making life impossible.

republicans have won if they don't figure out what they are going to say on it. >> greg: what should they do, laura? >> laura: i just have to say that right now getting into how the media has been so in the bag for the democrats, right now, there is a headline that says "whatever the results tonight, beto o'rourke said to emerge victorious." of course, if you lose, you win. if you win, you win. i think the way that we have to look at this, people do you like divided government. it is a little bit too much here. we will try it. if things don't go well then, maybe they will throw that party out. people in the mood to kind of give report cards. i'm telling you, jesse and greg, on the substance, you cannot argue with trump policy. they are winning across the board. juan, that has been trending upward. better than it was in 2010. that is interesting. >> juan: maybe that's why his
approval rating is so low, laura. >> laura: it's his personality. >> laura: it's not 51. that's ridiculous. >> juan: to your point, i just want to say as someone sitting here, i want to stand up for the young people. >> greg: the only one voting for you -- >> juan: what we know is a state like georgia, four times the rate of turn out in 14. in texas and nevada, five times, what do you our young people more engaged. this goes to the top of your monologue. trump has made midterms more relevant, more interesting, more essential for americans. and i think we engage people in the political process who previously thought midterms, no. and from a democratic perspective, they thought hillary clinton is going to win, so why bother? >> jesse: yet, trump makes everything hot right now. the economy, twitter, trade.

brand-new approach to find out what is motivating voters? we are talking with more than 130,000 americans all across the country, so first of all, the economy. most voters feel that it is an excellent or good shape. that is great for incumbents out there. now on the topic of immigration. that is a hot topic. these are divided on the border wall. 53% say that they oppose the border wall. on obamacare, it is even more closely divided. half want to repeal. half would keep it all in place and even expanded. all right, of next, complaining about the pc culture this day. two-thirds say that they feel the pressure to be politically correct, they say that it has gone too far. republicans are nearly twice as likely as democrats do you feel that way. now, talking a lot about i.d. laws, how they can be used for suppression. we ask nonvoters why aren't you getting out and voting this year? many say that they are not into
politics, they don't like the candidates. at the bottom of the list, a percentage that say they don't have identification. we will have a lots more voter analysis. state-by-state we will be able to dig into individual races throughout the night as the polls are closing. >> juan: shannon, thank you so much. laura, this is an intriguing moment. he see the division on so many issues in those polls, from the wall to health care, what do you think? >> laura: well, health care, let's go back to that. i think again, the storytelling on what's republicans are going to do with health care, i think it was really llama. it was the republican's responsibility to make their alternative clear, even if john mccain was going to go and vote against it at the last minute. i don't think that paul ryan, the senate leadership really made this clear. i think this was a missed opportunity. today, people don't know this.
democrats to have a plan, and it is called a medicare for all, it will cost about $32 trillion to implement. people get what that is. that is unattainable, unreachable. so this is a favorite for gutfeld. pc culture. people don't want to speak code from college campuses, forcing it upon american society. it is too anti-free speech. that is trump. that is the trump of effect. not everything is racist, anti-semitic. there are some things that are anti-semitic and racist at that should be called out. not everything on television that disagrees with your point of view is racist. i think that is an interesting barometer of where we are today. >> greg: dominic >> juan: jesse, what you heard from shannon, what do you make of the wall? >> jesse: it is evenly split. republicans i don't like the wall, they don't like the cost of it, or they are more business friendly, but if republicans
look at those numbers from the analysis that we just showed, i think they come away with a positive afterglow. two-thirds are very satisfied. that's fantastic. on obamacare, we've heard for years that obamacare is even more popular now. everybody loves obamacare. in fact, everyone wants it repealed. and then the pc culture overwhelmingly people reject pc culture, and we have been hearing for years about how we have to be so sensitive. walk around on eggshells and everything. look at that. that is not where the american middle east. i would just finally close with this. the men and women blue-collar voters, that is the trump base. they usually -- of those are the people that trump recaptured with his trade, immigration, his anti-pc narration. whether those white working-class voters stay with the republican party, they are not cemented down at all, i think that is going to be the key to the election.
>> juan: dana, what did you make of the idea that among people who said they are not voting, the biggest reason was i don't like politics? >> dana: well, i think that is probably right. it is not everybody's cup of tea, but also in america, not voting is a vote. you get a choice. 65% of people saying that the economy is wrong, if the president can find a way to make these gains durable for the next 18 months, his reelection is probably in pretty good shape. >> greg: you know what i noticed was not in the analysis? nothing about the russian probe because nobody cares about the russian probe. this is an important point because adam shifts that if they flip the house, they are going to renew the russian probe, which has been feeling for the last -- i don't know how long. renewing the russian probe is like giving cpr to a corpse. [laughs] >> juan: well, how about that? >> greg: i wouldn't know about that.

and overreach. if something goes south, you can spread the blame around. trump can campaign against the do-nothing congress, and there is going to be plenty of offens offense. >> laura: juan, is there a risk and overreach for the democrats? should they take the house? >> juan: yes, especially when you look at president who is saying that i am being victimized. at that place with the republicans. >> laura: democrats don't, though? >> juan: i am saying that's what you are going to get is they are saying our guy is under attack you. we better support him. that could help him in regard. >> laura: it helped obama in 2010. the republicans came in, they went hard at obama. he was reelected. >> dana: same for bill clinton. the 1994 midterms, the republicans take it all all across the midterms. he won't make quite handily.
i was there in 20061 george w. bush lost the republican majority, and the thing that happened immediately was almost all legal. it was every day, document request, document preservation. they wanted to destroy karl rove, subpoena everything. it just never ended. even if nancy pelosi is telling her troops, and there's going to be a lot of new committee chairman. everybody's going to want to get a bite. it is going to be very hard for them not to. some people are voting for that, right? they want these investigations. somehow they think that that will save them. >> laura: when you think about somebody lecturing out there, he has not thrown out the possibility, dismissed it that justice kavanaugh, that they would proceed to impeach him, after finding out that two of his accusers are going to be criminally investigated. how is that going to play? >> greg: i think that what is really hypocritical is that they say that they believe these
women. then they went away. i love how the media pretense that they didn't take these accusations seriously. they mentioned all five of them every chance they could get. they group them together to create a larger narrative. they have five cases. >> laura: all right, up next, "one more thing." ♪ max, what do you wanna do today? ♪ [ car honk ] no idea huh? i got one. let's steal christmas in style.

>> dana: it's time now for "one more thing." i voted today, and i didn't know that there was this big controversy about the "i voted" stickers. this started in the 1980s. apparently they are very expensive, about $0.10 apiece, so some locations decided not to do any stickers today, and this has created a whole thing. i got a couple extra today, handed them out where they didn't have enough. the commissioner said he would not spend a $20,000 in taxpayer money on an adhesive participation sticker. it does create a lot of peer pressure. >> greg: you can't use this as a christmas gift for the staff. >> dana: do you want to give them to them on my behalf? anyway, does anybody want one? all right, juan, you are next. >> juan: the midterm election turnout is everything, and this
time around, the season there has been record turnout. now in my family, my home back in washington, d.c., we are very political family, right down to the grandkids. my youngest son as you know walks to mike works for dr. ben carson. here he is. his "i voted" sticker. now he ran as a candidate. here he is with his sticker. and here is my daughter. she is the politically wise one. here she is with her "i voted" sticker. but best of all, how about my 16-year-old granddaughter? >> dana: not allowed. >> greg: illegal voting. >> dana: all right, jesse, you're next. >> jesse: all right, so changed his name. changed his middle name to john. and he's going to lose, so let's get that out of the way.
i predicted trump was going to win in 2016, so i have a good feel for these things, so if i screw this one up, at least i am 1 for 1. i am saying that in the senate, democrats pick up 20-28 seats in the house. that is how specific i'm going to get, and you guys can take that to the bank. no one else -- go >> dana: only four, jesse only four? >> jesse: i am going with five. >> dana: all right. greg. >> greg: i'm going to say it's picking up four, and for the house, it will be 23. all right, let's go to this. i get very excited when they invent a new piece of furniture, and they have finally invented the one that i always have wanted. they call it the otterman. it is a typical ottoman, red, but it has auditors on it. it is an otterman.
>> dana: doesn't come with the otters? do you have to buy them separately? >> greg: all right, enough of this. >> dana: all right, laura, your turn. one more thing. >> laura: all right, we otter get going here. it is not just your hair that the humidity can mess with. your vote may be messed up too. i kid you not. voters in wake county north carolina struggled to get certain voting machines working. here is what wake county board of elections director gary sims said was at the root of the problem. >> first thing this morning, there was a lot of humidity. there was a lot of fog. even right now, you can feel how humid it is outside. >> laura: wait a second. humidity, also said the size of the 17-inch ballot is also partially to blame. the machines have been in place
since 2006, and they are reportedly going to be replaced after the selection. it's raining outside a new yorker, and we women generally don't like humidity, and neither do certain voting machines. >> dana: you are in danger if you're talking about that, have to check the weather forecast. >> juan: i don't make predictions because i am usually wrong, but i think this time around, if you just look at the improvement of fox model, i don't think there is much question. >> laura: whatever happens tonight, the mainstream media will conclude that it is a total repudiation. >> juan: i can only hope for. >> dana: gregor, any last thoughts? make it a good one. >> greg: margaritas. >> dana: all right, that's it for us on "the five." i hope you stay tuned on fox news is live coverage, coanchored by bret baier and martha maccallum. we are going to send it over to
