tv Early Today NBC November 8, 2016 4:00am-4:30am MST
there is one core question for you to consider -- do you want america to be ruled by the corrupt political class? or do you want america to be ruled by you, the people? that's what it is, by the people. >> love trumps hat let's get out and vote. philadelphia, tomorrow! let's make history together. thank you and god bless you. >> hillary clinton and donald trump make their closing arguments and now it's time for voters to decide at the polls. >> it is election day, 2016. a special edition of "early today" starts right now. >> good election tuesday, everyone, i'm ayman mohyeldin.
upon us, it's been 18 months in the making. this morning, millions of americans prepare to head to the polls to pick our nation's 45th president, just hours after trump and clinton wrapped up their final campaign events in michigan and north carolina. it has been 510 days since donald trump rode down his fifth avenue trump tower escalator to announce his candidacy for president. and 507 days since hillary clinton released her video announcing he and hillary clinton returned home before she casts her own ballot this morning it came to a head as the campaigns held their final rallies, trump taking to michigan as clinton amassed her largest event yet in front of philadelphia's independence hall to cheer her with former president bill clinton, president obama, the first lady, jon bon jovi and bruce springsteen. she and trump delivered their closing arguments early this
>> today is our independence day. when you step into that voting booth, today, it's now today there is one core question for you to consider -- do you want america to be ruled by the corrupt political class? or do you want america to be ruled by you the people. hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted america. i really believe it's the most important election of our lifetimes because we've never had a clearer choice. never. it is a choice between division or unity. between strong, steady leadership or a loose cannon who could risk everything. >> it was an all-out sprint for
of michigan, new hampshire, florida, and north carolina. this morning the first election results, the small town of dixville notch, new hampshire. with a total voting population of eight. continued their midnight voting tradition. clinton captured the most votes with four, followed by two for trump, one for gary johnson and one write-in for mitt romney. now since 1960, the town has accurately predicted seven of the last 14 predictions. clinton leading with 274 electoral votes to trump's 170 electoral votes, there are 94 votes in the toss-up category of course. this is just a prediction. clinton also spoke to millions of tv viewers during two minutes of prime ads on the major network where she laid out her vision for the nation. >> i think we can all agree it's been a long campaign. but tomorrow you get to pick our next president.
hope you'll think about. first, it's not just my name and my opponent's name on the ballot. it's the kind of country we want for our children and grandchildren. >> but it was president obama who gave the most visceral speech of the final day of the campaign, offering his full-throated support for clinton. and with the latest gallup poll put his approval numbers at a record high of 56%, numbers not seen since 2009, he's putting that approval rating on the line for clinton. >> so with whatever credibility i've got after eight years as your president i'm asking you to trust me on this one. >> trump's running mate, mike pence, and campaign surrogate sarah palin and daughters ivanka and tiffany were all hitting the trail one last time. >> this isn't just a choice between two people, it's a choice between two futures. i choose to stand with donald trump and every american who
if they have a problem with donald trump's tone or something, you know, gosh, something on the periphery. well, so what? you know this is bigger than one man. it's bigger than a party. >> yesterday the market snapped an eight-day losing streak largely due to political news, we look at what the election means not just here at home but around the world. >> typically in the week before the election wall street rallies, however the s&p 500 was down for nine straight sessions before snapping that losing streak just yesterday following the news that fbi once again cleared hillary clinton. so how do stocks perform after the election? if history is any guide investors could see some red arrows ahead, going back to 1996. the s&p 500 has dropped in three of the past five elections in the week after the vote. when barack obama won in 2008, the s&p fell nearly 11%. but remember we were in the
crisis at that time. but no matter who wins there are some specific stock sectors that could benefit. a republican victory in the white house and congress could be positive for drug, energy companies and banks, because the gop is perceived as pro business and not as strict on regulation. however, if democrats succeed, consumer discretionary and staples could get a boost as clinton has made increasing wages a priority, health care can also benefit as the odds of expanding obamacare would go up. like uncertainty, though, it has long been anticipating a clinton win. but a donald trump victory could qualify as a shock for stocks. there's not much you can compare that to, maybe how markets reacted to britain's vote to leave the european union in june, the s&p 500 erased all gains for the year on that day after brexit. but has since recovered those losses and then some. >> if you needed one more example of why this election
cnbc's landon downey, thank you very much. i want to bring in senior politics editor for nbc news and msnbc. beth good morning to you. we've talked about this day being nearly two years in the making. what would you say are the top things we need to watch for today. >> the top thing to look for today are the states we haven't seen early voting yet. we've been seeing early voting for the last three weeks in a lot of states, includi today a few battlegrounds step into the spotlight that have not been voting up until this point. we're looking at pennsylvania, new hampshire, michigan. none of those states are early voting states, they're all battlegrounds this time. so everybody is going to be seeing whether the trends we've seen in some of the other states that have been voting so far, like a big surge of hispanic turnout, a little flat on african-american turnout are going to bear out in the states we haven't seen voting until today. >> we've seen the predictions
than not they give clinton a win. so as we look at our final nbc battleground map here, what would you say the electoral math will look like at the end of the night for either candidate? >> it could be one of either of those scenarios, it could be a very short night or it could stretch late into the evening. we don't 100% know, what we know is that hillary clinton has been leading by a bit. both nationally and in most of the battlegrounds, that's a pretty hard thing to turn around election in 2004 between george w. bush and john kerry. very close throughout the closing couple of months. but john kerry was never, ever ahead in any of the major polling and sure enough, he came up a little bit short in the vote. so chances are we will probably see hillary clinton win tonight. most of the polling progosticators are suggesting that. but honestly, we don't know, we could see a big surge of trump voters out there that have not yet come to the polls and that's what the trump campaign is
evening. >> and beth, it could be a very long one. >> what's a couple more hours after 18 months. >> nbc senior news editor beth fouhy. >> let's bring in meteorologist bill karins with a look at the election day weather. >> it looks like turnout should be great. if there are long lines that are outdoors, many areas are very warm, unseasonably mild in the middle of the country. 60 degrees in north dakota. very warm, too. maybe even a few record highs and warming up after a cold morning in the east if there's any trouble spots, we have rain this morning, san antonio has been getting soaked with showers and thunderstorms, that's going to continue in that region. up here in michigan, we'll watch some showers as we go throughout the afternoon hours and even ohio. but again there's nothing out there that looks like it's going to prevent a great turnout. that's a look at the big weather story of the day and a closer look at your election-day forecast. for the most part, we're
southeast. now the deep south is where we have the rain out there in areas of louisiana and also texas. and there's the showers that are possible today from indianapolis to cleveland but they'll be light. nice to see no snow, no sleet and you know no flooding, anything like that, we're looking pretty good. >> in other words, no excuses. >> yes. just ahead, securing the election. >> how u.s. security stands ready to react in the face of outside interferences in america's election. outside interference over america's election. thanks for giving victor the energy to be the rowdiest fan. and joseph, the ability to see monsters. when you choose walgreens, you choose to make a difference... like how every vitamin and flu shot you get at walgreens helps give life-changing vitamins and vaccines...
