4:08 am
communities. >> reporter: people standing in line for hours to see the president say immigration is exactly what he should focus on. >> we have too many homeless people in this country. too many homeless vets. i think the money ought to go to them about before it goes to the illegals. >> reporter: so with all of this traveling you might wonder when the president himself might be voting. the white house tells us that mr. and mrs. trump recently voted by absentee ballot. they are of course registered right where you are, michelle, in the great state of new york. >> all right. actually new jersey. absentee ballot myself. ed o'keefe, thank you very much. on tuesday, all 435 seats in the house of representatives are up for election. democrats need to flip at least 23 seats in order t contrstime since 2010. republicans find themselves on the defensive of the 66 most
4:09 am
hotly contested races. the gop is defending 60 of the seats. in the senate the republicans hold a narrow 51-49 seat edge. one of the seats was won by president trump in the 2016 election. meanwhile, voters in 36 states will be electing a governor on tuesday. that includes two closely watched and fiercely contested races in florida and georgia. >> let's get some insight on the election. for that we turn to philip bump, national correspondent for the "washington post." good morning. >> morning. >> traditionally in the midterm election turnout is down. >> that's right. >> but in early and absentee voting we're actually in some states seeing a huge acceleration in voting, aren't we? >> that's right. it's hard to read what that means. first of all we're contrasting 2014 which was a low turnout midterm election so it's easier to get more turnout. but we're seeing an jengeneral .
4:10 am
it's hard to say what that means at this point in time, really be able to evaluate that better after tuesday. >> when you say hard to say what it means, you mean for which party that may serve more? >> right, exactly. a surgeon voting generally speaking is going to be better for the democrats. one of the reasons democrats do well in midterm elections is because democrats don't turn out for a variety of reasons. a boost generally will benefit the democrats but it's hard to say how much of a boost we'll see. >> republicans in particular seem to like what they're hearing on the trail, particularly from the president. >> right. >> what are democratic voters seeking to hear from their candidates? >> well, the democratic party, democratic candidates put a heavy focus on healthcare this election cycle. one of the things we're seeing this that is the thing that's capturing people's attention. that's what people are interested in hearing about as well. i think president trump has effectively changed the conversation to a large extent to immigration in a way that he
4:11 am
thinks will help energize his base. but really healthcare is the thing that we've seen both democratic candidates talking about and what the people are really sort of focusing on as they're thinking about their vote. >> we heard the president concede that the republicans might lose the house. >> right. >> how is that being looing at this point, the house? 23 seats the democrats need. >> it seems likely the democrats will take the house, because it is structured in a way that it's going to be beneficial to them. there's a lot of republicans that retired this year. there's a lot of republicans who won in years like 2014, 2010 which were big republican years and so they sort of stretched themselves a little too thin. so there are seats that the democrats can pick up, which is the open cyst what's happening in the senate. the senate is very much favorable to republicans. republicans are likely to hold their majority if not gain on it. it's sort of a fascinating dichotomy on tuesday. >> it seems like -- >> good gallop actually released data on friday which shows that the number of people who say that their vote meant to support
4:12 am
or oppose the president is the highest among both parties since 1998 when they first started doing it. there's a lot of people going out to vote because of president trump for good or bad. >> voter suppression, i want to hit on this. >> sure. >> just how much should -- might that impact what is taking plac voter i.d. laws to election polling places closing or essentially keeping voters away from the polls? >> right. well this is also something that's pretty contested is the effect that you can have with voter suppression. there was a study done that shows 100,000 people in two states that were prevented from voting because of new voter i.d. laws that made it harder for them to go out and cast ballots. this is something that has been a strategy to tamp down on turnout, particularly from voters who are more likely to vote democratic. it's hard to say at this point what the effect is going to be. we've looked at this in georgia. georgia is a state where this is being closely watched. it's one of those things that
4:13 am
we're going to have to sort of come back after the fact and say hugh how much of an effect did this have? >> it's hours to go, not just days. cbs news will have live coverage of the midterm elections on tuesday beginning on our streaming service cbsn at 5:00, 4:00 central and stay for complete election night coverage starting at 8:00, 7:00 central. two people dead and five others injured when a gunman opened fire in a yoga studio in florida. kenneth craig has the latest on the details. >> reporter: in this tallahassee complex, a peaceful hot yoga class was violently interrupted friday night when a shooter entered and opened fire. >> i've seen a lot of bad scenes and seen some bad things. this is the worst. >> reporter: two women died from their wounds.
4:14 am
a 21-year-old and a 62-year-old. four additional victims were hospitalized. another man was pistol whipped after he tried to confront the alleged gunman. >> the fact that we had people fight this attacker and prevent him from doing further harm really speaks to the true spirit of tallahassee. >> reporter: melissa hitch inson tends bar across the street. she administered first aid as bloody victims rushed inside to take cover. >> they were very emotional. they just saw people get shot. it was an emotional time for everybody. >> reporter: police say the suspect is scott beerly. he had two previous arrests in tallahassee, both for battery. authorities haven't identified a motive. in response to the shooting, and f gssee mayor andw >> theseurre have become far too greent and itat in our d
4:15 am
it's my sincere hope that we'll reflect on why that might be. >> reporter: for "cbs this morning: saturday," i'm kenneth courage. it's been one week since a gunman killed 11 people at the tree of life congregation in pittsburgh. services were held friday night at a nearby temple. hundreds showed up earlier in the day for the fun ralph rose mallinger, the final victim to be laid to rest. it's been a week of grief for the entire city of pittsburgh. david begnaud spoke to one woman who is both a survivor of the shooting and a family member of one of the victims. david, good morning. >> reporter: anthony, good morning. you're not going to hear the suspect's name today, we're not going to show you his picture either. carol black hid in a closet with barry werber and mel wax. she said the gunman killed wax but couldn't see her in the closet. she survived, but her brother richard was also killed. this is their story. >> it's starting to have a finality to me that he's gone.
4:16 am
and it's -- it's a crushing blow. >> tell me about it. >> my brother was a dentist. he met his wife in dental school and they were just getting ready to retire.vieader. he was a runner, just most amazing, loving, kind, funny, smart human being, you know. everybody loved him. >> what did his faith mean to him? >> he was very spiritual and it was very much a part of his life. he eventually talked me into it, to coming back, and it's now become a part of my life too. we said he was the heartbeat of the congregation. >> take me back to saturday. >> my brother and dan stein, another of the people that we lost, were in the kitchen. i heard the first sound -- i didn't know what that sound was. to me, it sounded like somebody had take he a big metal table and dropped it on a tile floor.
4:17 am
we heard another sound similar but a little bit closer. that was when the rabbi figured out that wha going on. and barry werber and i went into the storage area and i went and hid behind a metal door that was propped open. mel, who was in the hallway and his hearing was not very good, he opened the door and peeked out and the gunman was still in the sanctuary looking for more people to eliminate and saw him. and he came into the area and shot him. and mel just laid right by our feet and died. >> did you see the gunman? >> i did not see him. i saw his shadow. >> could you hear him? >> he didn't say anything. >> but you could hear him coming in? >> yes, i guess when he thought he got all of us he moved on to another part of the building. there's was an entrance into the kitchen at the bottom of the
4:18 am
steps, and he heard their voices so h there wereople in and he went in and shot them. >> one of those people. >> was my brother. i think the time that he spent shooting them actually is what gave us the time to escape the room and, to me, their martyrs. they gave us the time so that we're still here. barry called 911 and those wonderful people remained on the phone with him until the s.w.a.t. team came to rescue us. and we were in the back of the patrol car for probably an hour, but we knew what was going on because the radio was on in the police cars. >> and you listened to it all on the radio? >> yeah. >> wow. >> uh-huh. >> when did you realize that your brother had been killed? >> my heart kept saying well maybe he managed to escape, although really there was nowhere for him to go. he and dan were trapped. they were sitting ducks. there was no way they were going survive. >> you know i went to the court
4:19 am
hearing for the gunman. >> i know, he pleaded not guilty. >> would you hope gets the death penalty as prosecutors plan to seek? >> no, because i think that's too easy. and i don't want him to have it easy. it want him to spend the rest of his miserable life locked up because he has no remorse and i think his only regret is that he didn't get us all. >> i'm reminded listening to you that we all grief differentlve . some people are incapable of talking aftering some li talking after something like this. what is this interview for you? >> talking about it is, in a sense, cathartic for me. it makes me feel more human and alive. i'm glad to be alive. >> she is remarkably composed. >> yeah. >> her strength was profound. >> yeah, and that she could -- that she could lay out all the details in such a calm fashion kind of breathtaking. and she nrpunderstands exactly t
4:20 am

4:39 am
intend to do. >> he decided this year was the year to run for congress. in may, he won his primary in texas's 21st district. there's a theory out there that scientists of kind of wonky, lab rats, they're not people persons. >> right. >> you don't seem to fit that mold. >> no, i am a blue jean, beer-drinking kind of engineer. >> are there more like you? >> of course there are. so that's the best part about stereotypes. if you lead with walking into a discussion i'm ann aerospace engineer i'm here to solve the problem, it's not going to solve anybody's problem. but if you walk in and say i too struggle this this or i too understand that, it's going to have it come out and that's my favorite part of any conversation when people say how did you figure that out? you some kind of rocket scientist. >> you're like i am actually, kind of. >> reporter: underwood at 26 years old hopes to be the first
4:40 am
african-american woman to represent the district. >> this is a district that's gone republican in the last several election cycles. you come from a nontraditional political background. do you feel like this is an uphill battle? >> no. i feel like this is what this moment is calling for. we have witnessesing some that i feel like's never happened before. we see our policymakers trying to dismiss facts, and they are ignoring facts and not consulting experts. but at the end of the day, truth penetrates. >> we need people with diverse backgrounds at the decision making table. >> reporter: two former epa chiefs say that although the majority of scientists are running as democrats, the need for scientists at the table isn't red or blue. >> personally are they left or right snf cours right, of course. but when they have their board, that's peer reviewed.

they care about their reputations. they're not going to jeopardize them by fiddling with the science. >> reporter: whitman served under george w. bush and mckashlgthm mccarthy served under president obama. what do you make of the fact that 400 scientists are running for office in the 2018 election? >> i think, you know, there's clearly they see the same thing that we do, which is it's not just the science under attack, but it's the scientists themselves. and we need people in leadership positions in the public sector who can help make sure there's evidence and fact-based decisions being made. >> reporter: not everyone agrees about the do you still think that climate change is a hoax? >> look, i thinking some's happening, something's changing and it will change back again. >> reporter: in a verecent interview, president trump
4:42 am
discussed his skepticism about climate change. >> the war on science didn't start with the trump administration. but it has gone to what felt like a war on science to an all-out war on facts. and that has acted as a catalyst. >> this woman is the president of a nonprofit political group. they received interests from 7,500 scientists. >> whether it's cybersecurity or nuclear weapons protecting the integrity of our elections or something like climate change, why wouldn't we want scientists at the table helping to decide policy azziers a as deders. >> but there's a risk. >> are you concerned at all that that number diminishes once there is the introduction of politics specifically in the
4:43 am
realm of science? >> no, i wouldn't be -- i wouldn't be worried about it because scientists are coming into the political realm or standing for office. we need more scientists and s.t.e.m. education and we need more people taking it up from all walks of life. >> reporter: scientists are not interested in becoming political leaders so that they can politicize the science. they want to join so that the science cannot be politicized. >> reporter: alex wagner, cbs news. very encouraging that so many scientists are in the races this year. >> and a great last point there, it's not about politicizing it, it's to avoid politicizing these things. >> sence has gotten us this country and around the world. >> it sure has. coming up, they track everything from the steps we travel to the beating of our hearts. but what role can so-called wearables play in maintaining our overall health? and are regulations keeping up with the technology? morning rounds

time now for morning rounds. our look at the medical news of the week. almost everyone knows someone who's been affected by cancer and it remains the nation's second leading cause of death. with so many of us touched by the illness, the american society of clinical on collegy conducted studies. >> they included asking how optimistic they are about finding a cure for the disease. nearly half say they're very optimistic with a little over a quarter somewhat hopeful. >> joining us how to discuss this and more is cbs news medical contributor dr. david agus. good morning, doc. >> yes, i'm a contributor. >> well, one topic where people seem to being not so optimistic was in terms of the cost of this care in this study.
4:48 am
and the anxiety which sort of is surrounding it. what can you tell us? >> well, you know, i think it's a true worry is that there is financial toxicity to cancer treatment. every new cancer drug is priced $150,000 a year, $200,000 a year. really many in many senses it's a preddaer atory practice. patients have to worry do i mortgage my house to be able to get cancer treatment and be with my family. it's an issue we as cancer doctors need to address. we as a society need to address. and certainly this survey brings that to the front, that they worry about more than that, than about toxicities from the treatment, they're worried about finances. >> another big to take this stood out in the study was people's responses to alternative therapies and the perceptions of them. what surprised you? >> what shocked me is that ia study was done in the american national institute people took
4:49 am
conventional therapies had a 2-fold higher dearth rate. these are drugs that have not been shown to work and there's a perception that they work as good or better than standard conventional treatments. that's a fault of we cancer doctors. and obviously we're not educating well enough. there's not enough hope put in the treatments that we're giving and that people are going to alternative treatments. that, to me, is scary. >> david, they were also asked about what they hope from the government as far as cancer care goes. what were some of their wishes? >> they should fund cancer research and cancer care. i agree with both of those. cancer one of the few bipartisan issues, whether you're red or blue, you care about cancer progress because every family in this country is affected. so the government has been in the lead financer for cancer progress and our progress has griffen the word to improve the care of cancer. hopefully that will continue. >> next up, so-called wearables and other high-tech geists thdet

recovery. we'll see how the jockey is hoping for a comeback following a devastating injury. that's all ahead. but first, our top story, president trump continues his all-out effort to campaign for candidates. me will be in montana and florida today. former president obama is drumming up support for democrats this weekend with only three days left before the voting. >> both mr. trump and mr. obama fw were in florida on friday and the president admitted for the first time that his party just might lose the house of representatives. >> it could happen. could happen. we're doing very well and we're doing really well in the senate. but could happen. >> republicans hope to pick up a senate seat in west virginia. in atlanta, myrrh obar. obama cd the president. >> his comments blatantly, baldly, shamelessly lying.
5:02 am
>> mr. obama will campaign tomorrow for democrats in indiana and illinois. and with just a few short days before the important mid terms, we attorney to larry sabato for some perspective. larry, welcome. >> thank you, anthony. >> larry, the first thing i want to talk about is we're seeing reports of a surge in early and absentee voting in some states. what does that indicate about a potential turnout on a national level? >> anthony, every indicator that we've seen suggests that we're headed for a big turnout for a midterm. remember, midterms always have turnouts way below the presidential election. sometimes we go into the 30s, like the last midterm election in 2014, 37%, 38%. this time probably the mid-40s, could go beyond that. so that's one of the reasons. and the second is over time americans are just really learning to like early voting. it's much more convenient and they don't have to worry about the disasters that can happen on
5:03 am
an actual election day, either to them or to the system. >> larry, we saw during the presidential election polling didn't exactly pan out. so at this point now, what are the factors that you look at be it some of the information, the modeling that's most reliable to you so that maybe we do see some of that pan out? >> i've always told people, i mean for decades, look at the polling averages. don't rely on any single poll, even your favorite network's poll, that's great, worntfnderfo look at it. but take them altogether, a number of internet sites do this for you, and look at that average and say, well, if it's within a few points that means it's a tossup. if it's ten points that means one candidate's ahead but last minute things can change it. don't rely on the polling. which is what we learned in 2016. live and learn. >> one of the most contested races is the race for the florida senate.
5:04 am
you have the republican governor pitting himself against the democratic incumbent. have you been able to call this one yet? >> no. that's a classic example of what i was just suggesting. right now, no, seriously, the democratic incumbent bill nelson is up a point or two in the polling averages. and based on what i just said, i mean, it's a tossup. so we're going to take another look on monday and we'll see what happens. in florida, you have to be incredibly careful. in 2016, almost all of the serious polling and other indicators were pointing in the same direction. hillary clinton was supposed to win. donald trump ended up winning it by more than a point, which in florida say land slide. florida has so many close elections that i'm not just talking about the 2000 presidential contest. >> larry, the governor's race there is close to. democrat andrew gillum. and to what degree do you think
5:05 am
those two races could affect each other in terms of coat tails? >> they should track pretty closely. we live in a very partisan, polarized era. and while there are still a few voters who can split tickets and make a difference in a close race, the vast majority of people vote from the same party from the white house to the courthouse. think they'll track closely. in the polling averages, gillum, the democratic candidate has actually been doing better than bill nelson, the incumbent u.s. democratic senator. gillum was up about four points. but, remember, you cannot ignore the possibility of race becoming important on election day. people sometimes don't tell the truth about what they're doing to polsters or even to themselves. >> larry, we also have nevada where, again, it's the senate and governor's race where people are watching so closely. what do you expect to happen? >> this morning i'm a broken record. both of them are ties. so where they're both tossups,
5:06 am
look at the polling averages. i'll tell you, though, of all the 50 states, i trust the polling least in nevada. >> why is that, larry? >> serious. well, it's very complicated. one of the reasons is 60% or more of the voters in nevada vote early and many of them are very well organized groups like casino workers, hispanics. and they disproportionately don't report that voting to those who are trying to get it. so this goes back to 2010. it's been a long time coming and people should be very cautious in that state about polling. >> we shall see. larry sabato, thank you. >> thank you. cbs news live coverage of the midterm elections on tuesday begins on our streaming service cbsn at 5:00, 4:00 central and stay with cbs for complete election night coverage starting at 8:00/7:00 central. it's about six minutes after

5:21 am
-- nat geo was interested and that was exciting. we started interviewing a lot of professionals and they were fascinating, including elon musk. but we saw that's exciting. so then the thought was let's do a documentary about what everybody is doing go to mars, because it turned out to be way more involved and many, many brilliant people dedicated to that idea than we ever realized. but we also wanted the cinema, the drama, the adventure. so our thinking shifted from totally scripted, totally dock to wait a minute. brian got this idea, let's do it as a hybrid, took it to nalt geo, they went for it and it was a total experiment. we learned so much in season one, i'm proud of season one, people are catching up with it all the time and i think it's great. but season two we have so much more confidence about the storytelling style. i think it really shows in the he skbl episode. >> you'll go from this scripted drama into what's present day or

real news clip and then into these interviews. does one lead the other or like to do you find the things to fit with the drama or do you have -- you know what i'm saying? >> in season one we more let the experts lead us. >> okay. >> we were learning about what it's going to take to go to mars. what it would be like to be there. and we were building scenes around that. going into season two, first of all we'd already done a lot of that research. we already knew what we were looking for. but this goes years later when it's the beginning of a community and it's this clash now between science and industry. >> and capitalism. >> because now it's time to mine mars, at least one group feels that that's vitally important. so the reality is that in the second season we knew what we were looking for, we knew what the stories were. we still went out and discovered a lot of information, you know, we spent a lot of time in antarctica. this is not just all talking heads. the documentary portion was very cinematic asell.
5:23 am
i think cinematic is kind of the word that we keep applying to the series because we want to make sure that it is like a movie, that it transports you. >> right. >> but it's science fiction, sure, nobody's gone there yet, and yet there's so much authority behind the ideas because you have these experts explaining what it's going to be like. >> by the way, would you ever have any interest in going into space? >> if they needed a director. i'm not the most adventurous person. if there's a path, if there's a story to tell. >> if there's a film to be made on mars you'd go. >> aido almost anything. >> are you surprised of how much of your cinematic drama speaks to today in our politics? >> ooas you start delving into e subjects, you find pair lelralld you start building a new society on another planet. it begs those questions. what are some of those same
5:24 am
battle lines or controversies. they're not battle lines, although things do get a little heated up there. >> your list of films, and michelle mentioned some of them, it say legacy on its own. but you became a part of the "star wars" legacy. >> yeah. >> what is it like for you to take on a task like that? >> well, i've been around it because, you know, i acted for george lucas on american graffiti. and when i asked him what his next film was going to be he described this crazy thing this that was sort of like a flash gordon but it wasn't flash gordon and 2001 space odyssey did you it wasn't 2001. it sounded like kind of a mess to me. when i went to see that movie, i was transported as was everyone. so when i came into that situation for solo, it was a thrill because there is so much passion behind those movies. there's nothing -- i went moo it and i thought i wonder if this is a little bit like a television serie w the know what they want and they crank it out. not at all. and led by kathy kennedy, that
5:25 am
group is so focused on just trying to do -- trying to do great work. >> one last thing. we talked about this, you were in two iconic television series and made a turn into directing. the first was grand theft auto in '77. had you always wanted to be a director? >> from the time i was a little kid i had ab observed my dad directing theater and he ran a little improv workshop out of our house. my father passed away last year, but loved it, loved the business, loved writing. and directed a lot of theater. also a lot of the -- almost all of the directors on the andy griffith show had been actors. and i became fascinated by the whole process. and they saw that. and from the time i was about 8 years old, 9 years old i remember them saying, i bet you're going to wind up being a director. i think had is something in the back of my mind. then the '60s came along and movies, there was this whole
5:26 am
thing with romeo and juliet and bonnie and collide. a -- clyde. i fell in love with the movies and i realized it was different than what we were doing on the television show. that's when i became a fan. and so having grown up with it and falling in love with the medium, it became my preftion. >> i was actually mad at ron howard for leaving happen we days, but you got me back with cocoon. >> thank you. >> you got me back with that. and there on out. >> i'll keep trying to win you over and over. >> nailed it as far as i'm concerned. >> the series is called mars and season two premieres monday, november 12th or national geographic. ron howard, thank you again. when they mount their horses, risk always comes along for the ride. up next, professional jockies face serious dangers on the track. we'll meet one injured star of the sport hoping to soon right again. you're watching "cbs this morning: saturday."

5:37 am
greatest feed food influence. >> he eventually moved to new york and in 2013 opened estella, one of the best newspaper restaurants. and later two other venues including flora bar which led to esquire magazine to name him chef of the year. hot stuff. and estella's debut cookbook was just released. thanks for being here. >> thank you for having me here. >> tell us about this great spread. >> we have a couple different things. we have some scallops on that side of the table with some peas and some collard greens. we have some steak served with some delicious sauce, funky italian -- funky eye tallian, really good. >> then we have a salad. and then for the syrup we're
5:38 am
doing chocolate and black sesame ga gnas-- gnash. and then we have celeseller na granny. >> i started drinking this on the break. it was like i js -- was just to drawn to it. >> i wanted to take your cookbook out that you said the hardest part of doing it was leaving the recipes alone. why was that so difficult to put those words down and leave it alone? >> chefs at a restaurant you always have the chance of, like, okay, you kind of adjust and change your mind. and following day you're doing little tweaks on "the dish." it's just -- it's just a different way of working, know. usually we don't -- we have another chance and just like having to give it away and put it out to the world and saying that's it.
5:39 am
>> i can't add a tweak here and a little bit more of this. >> no. and i try and i get into trouble a couple times. so, yeah, i kind of learned the hard way. but, yeah, it's done. >> you got your italian influence from your grandmother. >> yeah, that's the one. so we make pastas every week, two, three times a week and i help and, you know, get smacked for not doing it right. you know. but, yeah. like she's been like the biggest influence probably on the way, you know, like that's how she expressed love and care and attention for everyone. >> and what was the first job in the food industry, then, for you when you sort of left your grandmother in that regard? >> so i started zmdoing some catering with a couple old ladies and a dog. we would work overnight. and sooner -- soon after that i started working with the yes.
5:40 am
>> so i worked for francis for a long time and, you know, also a big influence on the way i -- >> how did he influence you? >> i think it's like focusing on the ingredients. as you see, the food and you see it on the cookbook, it's very ingredient driven. so the idea is to highlight these ingredients and focus it on the integrity and the qualities of these ingredients without doing a lot but elevating to a point that you are like, wow, i would never imagine that process would taste like that. or perhaps celery, it's one of those ingredients who wants to eat sellerrcelery. >> so when you opened estella, you've said at that the ambiance is more important necessarily sometimes than the food?
5:41 am
>> i think all elements need to be taken into consideration, you know. like the food, you know, if you went to a restaurant, that's what you do. you're supposed to provide that really good dish and plate, right? but aside from that, it's all the person that greets you at the door, the people that pick up the phone, the music, the lighting. >> it's the experience. >> the experience. >> how did you feel about the reaction you got when you opened the restaurant? >> it's funny because actually was talk together landlord and he was like, you told me you were going to do a wine bar and now you have this fancy restaurant, like well known. like what happened? >> how dare you be successful like that. >> i think all these tiny little things, there were a lot of tweaks and people just responded in a very incredible way. all the restaurants are focused on the neighborhood and the community. so for me it's very important to cater to that. i think in new york particularly
