7:06 am
here in missouri, we've seen the tightest senate race and they've spent $94 million. but are all of the ads working will they encourage people to go to the polls or will they turn them off? it's a sprint to the finish line, as candidates across the country make their final pitches about what's at stake, bombarding voters with r robo calls, texts, social media ads and tv commercials. >> i approve this message. >> reporter: a staggering $1.5 billion alone has been spent on political tv ads since the start of october. republicans taking a page from the president's playbook. >> democrats want to invite caravan after caravan of illegal aliens. >> reporter: targeting liberals and stoking immigration fears. >> the caravan is full of gang members and criminals. >> reporter: democrats attacking the president's leadership and focusing on health care.

7:09 am
election. the early vote numbers that we've been talking about, i think we may cross 100 million total votes. it's only in the '96 and 2000 presidential elections that we crossed the 100 million mark in presidential elections. it's that big a deal. when you have a turnout like this, it makes polls -- it's going to make pollsters look ridiculous. not because they don't do a good job, but you cannot accommodate for all of the new voters in any way. >> nobody knows who exactly is showing up. that makes the job of pollsters difficult. >> absolutely. >> here's what's at stake. obviously, control of congress. in particular, democrats really feel, kasie, they have a chance to take back control of the house. that's the so-called blue wave. what are you hearing from your sources? >> that's going to be the big story on election night. the reality is -- my sources are looking at a lot of the same information chuck is looking at. they're doing their own looks inside their campaigns. the sources i'm talking to, by and large, they believe democrats will take back the house. the question is by how many
7:10 am
seats? are they just going to have the narrow of a majority or is it going to sweep through? it goes to a question of who actually comes out to the polls. >> we're dogging the polls a little bit. we have some numbers. we have missouri and florida, two tight races. in missouri, claire mccaskill, the incumbent. she's been behind in a lot of the polling. here's what we show this morning, she's ahead. >> we have her ahead. and this comports to what we're hearing on the ground there's been a movement towards her. this is the first poll i've seen in a while that's had her ahead. and it's surprising a lot of people that she's ahead. but it's not surprising this thing tightened. the republican candidate unexpectedly canceled on us on "meet the press." >> chuck is saying don't cancel "meet the press" or your poll numbers will go down. >> i'm not putting a connection. they felt as if they had some tough coverage in the last week. something is happening there. one thing about our pollsters, the way they do their likely voter model, they may have a way
7:11 am
of capturing new voters. than more traditional likely voter models. if something has changed quickly, you're likely to see in our poll. >> we have florida, too. a big one, the governors' race and the senate race there. in that one, kasie, the democrats are ahead in our latest poll. >> really remarkable. not what we expected to see when we started covering this. being from florida, chuck knows, the excitement among democrats for andrew gillum is off the charts. that's helping carry other democrats running. >> i had a democratic strategist so cocky about florida on behalf of democrats, that person thinks he's going to make the 9:00 p.m. tipoff of florida/florida state basketball. he thinks we'll be able to call the race on tuesday night by the
7:12 am
time florida/florida state tips basketball game. i said, buddy, it's florida. as someone who has taken months to call florida, i wouldn't be so cocky. that's how confident democrats feel in florida. >> it will be an interesting night. we will see -- as you say there's three issues in this election, immigration, health care and the president. on the midterms and the mood of voters ahead. stay with nbc news because it's going to be a long night for us. the results roll in tomorrow night. we'll start at 8:00 p.m., 7:00 central. meantime, the nation is mourning the death of an american soldier who was killed while serving in afghanistan. a proud father of seven and the mayor of north ogden, utah. miguel almaguer has our story. >> reporter: major taylor was serving his fourth tour of duty when he was killed by an afghan soldier, an apparent inside attack that left one other american seriously wounded. today, taylor's family, friends

jacob soboroff shares their stories coming up after this. o, o, and saying, "really?" so capital one is building something completely new. capital one cafes. inviting places with people here to help you, not sell you. and savings and checking accounts with no fees or minimums. because that's how it should be. you can open one from right here or anywhere in 5 minutes. seriously, 5 minutes... this is banking reimagined. what's in your wallet? daily hair damagen stop before it happens ...with these roses. one is treated with dove. both are exposed to damaging heat. the rose without dove is dry and brittle. dove deeply nourishes and stops 90% of daily hair damage before it happens. the midterm elections, not as a democrat or a republican -- i've been both -- but as an american who is deeply concerned with the direction of our nation. like you, i've watched the recent bombings
7:39 am
and mass shootings with growing alarm. political violence tears at the heart of our democracy. and violence against a religious group, in a house of god, tears at the heart of our humanity. at these moments of great national tragedy, we look to washington to lead... to offer solutions... to bring us together... and to appeal to all of us, as americans. we are a nation of builders and doers. we know that there are no easy answers or quick fixes. but we expect a plan. we expect to be called to a higher purpose. we expect to work together. i don't hear that call coming from washington these days... do you? in fact, i hear the opposite -- shouting and hysterics instead of calm reasoning. pointed fingers instead of open hands. division instead of unity. we see this most dramatically with the fear-mongering over immigration. americans are neither naive nor heartless. we know that we can be a nation of immigrants while also securing our borders.
7:40 am
sadly, our greatest threats today can be found from within our borders, from a government that is constantly on the verge of shutting down over partisan bickering, that is accumulating record debt, and failing to address our most urgent problems. i've never been a particularly partisan person, i've supported candidates from both sides. but at this moment, we must send a signal to republicans in washington that they have failed to lead, failed to find solutions, and failed to bring us together. that's why i'm voting democratic. america is the greatest nation on earth and for all our sakes we must start becoming the united states of america once again. thank you. independence usa pac is responsible for the content of this advertising. whoa! the mercedes-benz winter event is back

8:38 am
there. i'm going to take it out of my pocket and drop it because that's how you would do it. see? not cracked. the screen is all-good. see it again. same area. whoops. and again, falling at random angles. the screen is still not cracked. the screen is fine. try it again. sometimes landing right on the screen. the screen is still intact. until drop number 11. >> now we have it. now, we have a big crack going right through here and also some shattering on the side of the screen right over here. that ain't bad. if you're dropping your phone that often, that's kind of on you. now, let's try it with the case. >> we have a regular silicone case on here, a standard version. going to start dropping it, out of my pocket. the screen is fine. this time around -- fall after fall, the phone
8:39 am
survives. no problems. no cracks. hi, joe. you're on tv. even when it bounces a s all o the ground. i keep going and going. dropping it so many times. finally -- there it is. magic number 32 and the screen is finally cracked. can you see all that? >> here it is up close. look how it shattered. spider web cracks all over. it took 32 times and it was a direct screen hit. the phone performing well with the everyday falls. can it hold up to something more extreme? we're at the 1,000 museum building in miami. this would be dropping your phone from the top of your house. and we have a brand-new iphone xs right out of the box. we put the case on it once again. so -- all right. you guys ready down there? here we go.
