10:14 pm
potentially going blue or do we have to wait. >> historically and we don't know where these presents are coming from but historically this urban present has come in first in iowa and the rule presents have come in later. rule presents in iowa tend to be more republican. it's been a number of democrats over the number of years that have been leading with 13 or 26 or 39% of precincts i'm not ready to put any credence in the numbers we have seen. >> how important are too close congressional races and i was first district and their district. the first district in cedar rapids which is heavily necrotic and third district which includes des moines which includes democratic. could that both attend in iowa
10:15 pm
democratic voters? >> when republicans have done well at the presidential level is because they've gotten turn out in western iowa. if democrat turn in eastern iowa that might have a similar effect. a tight result in district 1 and that's a factor of what i was talking about earlier. >> something to be expected. this is district here david young taking a lead in that that is also a district that includes des moines. what is the biggest surprise that you have seen so far? is a place like north carolina that we thought with the extended voting place i do with the more democratic voters? >> i think the biggest surprise nationally has been that states with increasing proportions of nonwhite citizens have not

11:27 pm
270, over the top. we're still waiting for results from several states including pennsylvania with 20 electoral votes. the swing state has voted democrat in the past -- i apologize. nevada is 6 electoral votes. let's get live there to jonathan hunt live in nevada right now. it's a pick up for hillary but could be too little too late for her? little, too late but it issen aimert pont pick up. 6 electoral college votes in nevada going to hillary clinton. the victory here, it seems built on a very effective brand game. of course, senator harry reed is retiring her when you look back
11:28 pm
thankful here in nevada at least for a very strong latino turnout. she was helped in that by the powerful unions here in las vegas and surrounding clark county and it's worth remembering that some 70% of nevada's total population that lives here in clark county. early voting certainly was leaning democratic to the tune of 50,000 votes in term oz of the margin over donald trump and what he turnout today in more conservative northern nevada. it now appears he did not get a large enough turnout and the 6 electoral college votes in nevada go to hillary clinton. >> what about the senate race there? still too close to call? >> it appears that catherine cortez, the democrat is going to hold on to senate minority leader harry reed's seat.
11:29 pm
desperately wants to hold the senate seat. republicans would love to have it as a turnover, in particular because it was held for so long by harry read. but cortez has a 4-point lead right now and if you crunch the numbers again, it looks as though that is going to hold up again. she will be thankful for a very good democratic brand game. that was helped by the unions here in clark county and it will ride the same wave to victory that hillary clinton has done here in nevada. it looks like a democratic win across the board in terms of the presidential race and that senate seat replacing retiring senator, harry reed. >> jonathan, thank you. which puts all the eyes on the state which is the neighbor of nevada, which is arizona.
11:30 pm
so, now the democrat and harry reed's power have now won. >> reporter: it's 9:30 on the west coast, half past midnight on the east coast and fox news projects hillary clinton wins the state of nevada. harry reed brout out his big machine in and aroun county in the wayning days of the campaign. harry reed had lines and lines of people. the polling places were supposed to close at a certain time. the long was so long that they voted for hours on end after. donald trump complained about it to a judge said these votes should not be allowed. the judge said we hold them anyway. but the widespread blee is they
11:31 pm
you're already in line your votes count, be it as it may, they would not have made the difference. nevada goes to secretary clinton. that gives her six more electoral votes so the count is donald trump 254. hillary clinton, 215. here are the rest of the states we're still watching. these are all that remain. nevada is off the board for secretary clinton. next is michigan. michigan and its 16 electoral votes still too close at the moment donald trump leads by less than 1 percentage point. donald trump with a hair's edge. pennsylvania still too close to call. donald trump with the slightest of leads, something around 3,000 votes out of more than 5 million cast.
11:32 pm
arizona with its 11, donald trump is leading by 3 1/2 points. only 2/3 of all the precincts are reported. arizona too close to call. new hampshire where both candidates spent a lot of time in the wayning days, look at that. new hampshire is separated by 15 half a million votes are in in the state of new hampshire. 1-5 votes. hillary clinton has 2,890 and donald trump -- 15 separate the two. and new hampshire is still to rr close to call. minnesota, hillary clinton with
11:33 pm
close to 100,000 votes as you can see on your screen there. but by far minnesota is still too close to call. donald trump spent time in minnesota. they said why are they in minnesota? now we know. and the state of maine which leans democratic and has leaned democratic throughout the contest, 75% of all precincts are reporting that hillary clint. is leading donald trump. is this over? it is not over. if michigan goes to hillary clinton and pennsylvania goes to hillary clinton. arizona leans right, give that to donald trump. new hampshire, let's give that to donald trump and give donald trump new hampshire and we're down to maine. maine and its 4 electoral votes and they split there, this thing
11:34 pm
here's a look at the state we called so far. all of the states on the big map you can see in the upper left of your screen, all of the red are donald trump. all of the blue are hillary clinton. hillary clinton with 215, donald trump with 254 and the race is too close to call. the latest electoral, the numbers are up for you. i want to bring in our pa executive -- or editor of the wall street journal. and from real and clear associate press white house reporter. a few minutes ago it was like this is donald trump. it looks that way. the path is easier for donald trump, but if you give her pennsylvania, and it's 20 electoral votes, she's up to
11:35 pm
that's 251. give her -- the math is not settled. >> well, it's still harder for her. >> but it's not over. the trend is to him. >> that people don't like her and that energized a real hunger for change in this country and that all of behavior which people have said is disqualifying is not to the people who want him to come in and and really what is too bad we would be better for the country if one of them won in a land slide. if trump did tonight and ran away with it or if she did because as i said she still looks -- even if she wins the popular vote and it's the divided math. >> she can have 309 electoral
11:36 pm
>> if president trump, controlling votes. republicans also controlling both houses of congress. he's not in accord with traditional republicans in the senate and the house on the issues that he says he's going to act on right away. transpacific partnership is going away right away. which has taken a couple of ye republicans want to take that region away from china which will dominate trade relations. affordable care act, maybe they agree on that. right taxes, maybe they agree on that. but private -- congress has backed away from that. currency has gone up, gone down. not sure if they want to tangle
11:37 pm
issue when there are a lot of other issues they need china's support on. >> the numbers are solid in the house of representatives. republicans believed they would lose at a minimum double digits. still retain control. they have lost but a handful of seats. they will not lose double digit seats. republicans firmly in control of the house of representatives. >> that make as ryan, if he wants to stay on as speaker, and i have don't know if he does. it makes it easier for him and become more conservative and it would have been harder for him to pass obviously anything with president clinton but even maybe sometimes with a president trump. so, it makes the path just a little bit smoother for him to try and retain enough support.
11:38 pm
it will changing the dynamics so they will be hoping that senate republicans will be the check on the trump presidency and trying to reign him in from his more boisterous instincts. >> we should go to donald trump headquarters and the man that's been covering politics since fluf was a kitten and she's a full grown cat, cameron will see him just a moment on fox broadcast coverage in the race for the white house 2016. one that's shaping up to be one of the most historic if thought the most in all our lifetimes. your insurance company won't replace the full value of your totaled new car. the guy says you picked the wrong insurance plan. no, i picked the wrong insurance company. with liberty mutual new car replacement?, you won't have to worry about replacing your car because you'll get the full value back

11:40 pm
11:41 pm
15 minutes before 1:00 in new york city. the city of donald trump and hillary clinton and we do not know who t be. here from the fox business network is live at trump campaign headquarters just a couple of blocks north of here. how is it going here, blake? >> they've been waiting for quite a while. the mood escalated. it's not a big scene here. kind of like a primary night event but we know, crowd wise, but we obviously know stakes are much higher. they're still waiting as donald
11:42 pm
no one has gone anywhere here, whereas we're seeing reports otherwise at the clinton campaign headquarters. so it's a wait and see at this point and almost 12:30/1:00. i don't know. >> from high level representatives of either campaign on the national stage. have you seen anything there? >> no, not from the trump campaign but the rnc folks are here and in talking to them, at least coming into they have a high senior aide told me they were watching four states. florida, north carolina, michigan. we await here on michigan. and i'll tell you i was talking a little while ago to a senator, who is from alabama, one of the
11:43 pm
and he said they feel when this is said and done that donald trump will out pace mitt romney when it comes to african americans and union voters. if that doesn't sound like the makeup of michigan, then i don't know what does and that's potentially what could tip the scales for donald trump. >> he's certainly out paced mitt romney in all the rural counties of florida where the tables. donald trump has out performed him and that's why he won flal fll. we're still waiting for michigan and pennsylvania. we have to hear from the winner and the loser, all of them. the night is young. have a cup of coffee and stay up with us. your grandchildren will ask you about this.

11:46 pm
? 1:00 in new york city. the election still too close to call. donald trump is 16 electoral votes away from the presidency. should he win pennsylvania, that's 20. but it's too close to call. none of the campaigns are
11:47 pm
nowhere to be found. and here on manhattan was west side. sounds quiet. >> reporter: i can tell you there are campaign staff here. there have been people screaming out for the last several hours. there's a sense of doom and gloom. they're listening to the news right now but there have been points where there has been shouting at the television as results came in but for the most part it's been very quiet. we have not heard from any campaign surrogates for several hours right now. they have completely gone to ground and everyone here is going to watch and wait mode. >> you know what they're saying to players behind the scenes. i've got democratic operatives who have talked to the hillary clinton people and nothing is ever come easy for hillary clinton. it has never been easy. she's never had a clear sail and
11:48 pm
now. when you look with hands and fists in this picture. there is a path for hillary clinton, without any question. if she wins michigan, that's 16. if she wins pennsylvania, that's a total of 36. that gets her to 141. add 141 and minnesota, that's 151. and arizona and that's 172. and hillary clinton is the president of the united states. it is not over for anybody or would have said it's over. hillary clinton can still be the president. it's not the way, jennifer, we thought it might go down, but it's certainly still a possibility. >> reporter: and don't forget the "r" word. we could have a recount in some states if they're very close. look at new hampshire. it's very close tonight. one of the things that is notable, arizona has not gone democratic since 1988, but one

campaign trail, hillary clinton got one of the largest crowds we have seen throughout this campaign, about 15,000 people in arizona. the latino vote in arizona still very crucial. she won nevada with the latino votes. we haven't been talking about that in the last few hours because florida was called and there was an expectation earlier in the evening that the latino vote would carry her across in florida but this is not over yet. and if we've seen strange things during this election and i would say that we still have to wait and see. >> we do indeed. and we'll be back at the hillary clinton headquarters. martha, the host of america's news room on fox news channel with us tonight, watching exit polling. how did they miss it? >> when you look at the polls

morning, there's really only two organizations that look like they may come out looking good. the business daily and the l.a. times, both of which were thrown out by most prognosticators. but you go through the groups and it's quite stunning to see how it stacks up. you compare donald trump to mitt romney and he's done better with hispanics, black voters and in many cases better with women i think back to the interviews we've all done talking to the trump family, which has been his most powerful and involved surrogates and all they kept talking about is wherever they were on the trail, to rallies, they had tremendous support from women, hispanics, black voters. those voters makeup a much smaller percentage of the republican electorate. but he's moved the needle from where mitt romney was and that
11:51 pm
tonight. it is a stunning, stunning turn around and i in many ways they shouldn't be surprised because this has been stunning us at every turn. >> rural america has come out in numbers we haven't seen before. >> that's true. and earlier in the evening if looked like they were only moving by a small amount but white workers, white blue collar workers who donald trump has had a connection with course of this entire campaign are voting for him. unions are voting for donald trump. that is something that we haven't seen in our lifetime. you saw some of it with the cross over in the regan 1980 campaign and in many ways this is shaping up to look like something comparable in some ways, somebody that many people thought was an out liar, a hollywood movie star and we had
11:52 pm
donald trump has and there's similarities in terms of the restructuring of the electorate. >> watching it as it comes in. if donald trump wins this, it will be the biggest upset in modern american political history. four big states on which we still wait. michigan and its 16 electoral votes. it's too close to call. 78% of all michigan votes are in and donald trump leads by about a point 1/2. in the state of pennsylvania, where the big democratic machine came out in philadelphia and expected to run away with pennsylvania for hillary clinton. 48.5% for donald trump. 47.9% for hillary clinton. it's less than a point separating tell the. obviously 95% all of precincts
11:53 pm
if went to hillary clinton, she leads there with 78% of all precincts voting. minnesota still too close to call and here is arizona. 11 electoral votes. donald trump with a lead, a lead that's largerer than the last time we looked up. less than 4 percentage points but with 2/3

1988. and we should note there is still no call in other states. pennsylvania and new hampshire. another one of the last remaining battlegrounds of this election. let's get live from molly in concord, new hampshire where the race is still very tight, molly. >> reporter: absolutely. an incredible nail biter. no answers as to who will claim the two electoral college votes. both of the candidates, donald trp clinton recognized this would be a battle to the end. both sides really fought this out on the road to the white house and it appears who ever gathers these votes might actually get there. winding through new hampshire usually after the new hampshire primary in february, some of

11:59 pm
hanging out and watching the results come in. but it's just too close to call on so many levels. and the governor's race too close to call. >> live for us in concord, new hampshire and she talks about how important new hampshire is and consider the scenario where donald trump has 254 electoral votes. he's ahead in arizona, that would put him up 265 and you talk about the four critical votes in new hampshire. he's going to get alaska. new hampshire would put him over the top without pennsylvania, without michigan, and without minnesota. he could lose those and still go to the presidency through new hampshire and don't forget how important those four electoral college votes are. if al gore had won new hampshire
