7:00 pm
captioning sponsored by cbs >> one day. >> vote tomorrow. >> this election will decide whether we are ruled by a corrupt political class or whether we are ruled by the people. we're going to be ruled by the people. >> tomorrow you can vote for a hopeful, inclusive, big-hearted america. this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: this is a special expanded edition of the evening news. the presidential campaign, nasty from the start, featuring two candidates with historically high disapproval ratings, is finally coming to an end. major garrett and nancy cordes are here with us. they've been covering the campaigns from the start.
7:01 pm
nancy, what was clinton's closing argument today? >> reporter: well, her closing message, scott, was that she wanted to get beyond that nastiness and try the unify the country. she said she would make it a priority as president, and donald trump, she argued, has run a very divisive candidacy and would be a very divisive president. here's how she put it to supporters in grand rapids, michigan, this afternoon. >> when your kids and your grandkids ask you in the future what you did in 2016 when everything was on the line, you'll be able to say you voted for a stronger, fairer, better america where we build bridges, not walls. >> reporter: clinton argues that she has a reputation for building consensus in the senate and she can it in the white house, too. >> pelley: nancy cordes, thank you very much. on the major garrett.
7:02 pm
major, what was trump's close today? how did he try the wrap it up with the voters? report. >> reporter: the closing argument is this: everyone in american political life not supporting donald trump is some combination of stupid, corrupt or weak. and in the case of hillary clinton, she's all three. he also lays before his supporters this proposition: if you want change, i'm not the best change agent in america, i'm the only change agent, someone with political clout and celebrity status sufficient to beat the special interests in washington at their own game. it is a nationalist, populist and conservative argument that trump found very resonant responses from his supporters. the key question is are there enough of those supporters to push him over the top? >> pelley: nancy, as everyone knows, there are 13 very closely divided states. we call them the battleground states. how does clinton feel about those tonight?
7:03 pm
>> reporter: i'd say the campaign feels confidently determined, scott. it feels a lot like the atmosphere around the obama operation in 2012, which isn't entirely surprising because it's a lot of the same people. they are very data-driven. they have a strategy that's been in place for a long time. they know what they need to do to win. if they execute the strategy properly, they win. in fact, a couple days ago i was talking to marlon marshall, the director of state campaigns. i asked him if he's feeling more nervous this week than last week because of the tightening polls. he said, "you're assuming that i'm nervous at all, and i'm not." >> pelley: major, donald trump almost has to sweep the table of the battleground states. how do they feel about that prospect? >> reporter: scott, tomorrow they're going to be looking at a number of states obviously, but michigan, pennsylvania, new hampshire loom the largest for the trump campaign. also out west, colorado and nevada. i was talking to a senior trump adviser. i said, wait a minute, the early vote in nevada is running way
7:04 pm
against you. you have to break the mold to get back in the game in nevada. he told me the mold is already broken. we just don't know by how much. >> pelley: major garrett and nancy cordes on election eve, thank you both. charlie rose will be moderating our election night panel tomorrow night. and he's here tonight with us now. charlie? >> reporter: thanks, scott. joining me now is peggy noonan, a columnist with the "wall street journal," jamelle bouie with "slate" and mark leibovitch from "the new york times" magazine. mark, looking at where these candidates are, what does that say about their priorities and the situation on the day before the election? >> well, it's interesting that both candidates will be spending time in pennsylvania and michigan. these are clearly states that donald trump needs at least one of them. they're also states that don't have early voting some the more work you can do on election day or the day before election day, it will have a bigger difference. these are both states in the rust belt that the clinton campaign and the trump campaign have been emphasizing really closely. >> rose: jamelle, what about
7:05 pm
these constituents that they will be looking to to gain early participation? >> trump is obviously trying to dust up his support with working-class white voters and probably try to cover support. the clinton campaign's obviously very focused on giving african american turnout up and sustaining high hispanic turnout. part of the problem is in states like north carolina, which is a tipping point state for the election, voter laws over the past couple years that have been put in place, the reduction in polling places, high requirements for i.d. have reduced african american turnout by about 9%. so that's a real challenge for the clinton campaign going into tuesday. >> rose: the idea of voter suppression? >> right. >> rose: peggy? >> two great questions. one, does the obama coalition turn out for hillary clinton in an organized, concentrated way significant enough to give her a win? on mr. trump's side, does the
7:06 pm
white working class show up? does the working class show up? is there actually a secret trump vote that nobody knows about that is going to show up at the polls as his campaign has suggested. >> pelley: how about women? >> women have been problematic for mr. trump. i think in states like pennsylvania it will probably turn out to be suburban women who might have gone republican but who didn't want to go down the trumpian path considering how he speaks about women. in nearby ohio, a woman recently said to me, "it can't be trump and i'm a republican." i said, why? he said, "i have a son and i don't want him to think it's okay to talk like that." >> rose: one thing we expect is large participation by latinos in this election. >> it's a game changer potentially. in florida especially north carolina, two crucial states,
7:07 pm
certainly if hillary clinton can win at least one of them she's in very, very good shape. there's been very, very high latino turnout, that would seem to favor her. and obviously it's a great surprise for them. >> i think it gets to this question of missing voters. there's the shy trump voter, but there's also the shy clinton voter. i think quite a few of the shy clinton voters are non-white voters who are not picking up on the polls but may be turning out to vote. >> rose: guys, thank you very much. look forward to seeing you tomorrow night. back to you, scott. >> pelley: charlie rose, thank you. the outcome of the u.s. election has a worldwide effect, so we spent correspondents to two capitals. elizabeth palmer is in moscow. manuel bojorquez is in mexico city. >> this is the heart of our factory. >> reporter: this factory outside mexico city produces a new type of cement repair mix. jose osawa is the owner. >> this is one of the main products we import from the state. >> reporter: the free trade agreement known as nafta allows him to import the agreements
7:08 pm
without paying tariffs. >> basically all my raw materials come from the states, all the machinery, all the electronics, they come from the u.s. >> reporter: so the more you sell, the better you do, the better those suppliers in the u.s. do, as well. >> yes, my suppliers are very happy. >> reporter: that's one way to look at nafta. here's another. >> nafta is the worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere, but certainly ever signed in this country. >> reporter: donald trump has vowed to renegotiate or rip up the deal. it's one of the statements that has led to trump protests here. what would happen if the united states decided to get out of nafta? >> i think it would be a huge mistake and hurt significantly u.s. companies. any kind of company. >> reporter: blanca trevino is c.e.o. of softtek in mexico. >> the partnership benefits us both. think of the jobs that are related. think much more how many jobs
7:09 pm
would be lost if we didn't have this kind of agreement? >> reporter: it's estimated that more than a million u.s. jobs are directly tried to trade with mexico. softtek, for example, employs more than 500 people in the u.s. and all the software and hardware it uses for corporate clients around the world is purchased from u.s. companies. >> it's not just i.t. think about tourism. think about transportation. there are so many things related to nafta that are important for this kind of agreement. >> reporter: but trump points to job losses in u.s. manufacturing to countries like mexico. hillary clinton is heavily favored here, and not just on trade, scott. one mexican tv network has branded its election coverage, "it's her or the wall," no mention of trump. >> pelley: manuel bojorquez in mexico city tonight, thanks. of course, for their part, the russians have been accused of computer hacking to interfere with the campaign. our elizabeth palmer is in moscow tonight. liz, what are the russians
7:10 pm
saying about that? >> well, the russians have denied they meddle in the u.s. election but those denials have on occasion sounded like taunts. take, for example, president vladimir putin at a conference recently. he said that america's reaction to the reports of meddling were hysterical, implying that the u.s. is big thin-skinned and defensive. and then he went on to say america is a great power, not a banana republic, unless i'm mistaken. >> pelley: what, in my opinion, has the russian government been trying to achieve with all of this? >> well, they want to undermine confidence in america's voting system, both at home and abroad, and also to belittle american democracy, but maybe most of all they want attention. they want to be considered players on the world stage. and the very fact that the united states has to prepare for the possibility of russian cyber attacks tomorrow during the elections or even that we're talking about vladimir putin and russia's role in america's
7:11 pm
election on national television, scott, that's a win for the kremlin. >> pelley: liz palmer in front of the kremlin tonight on the moscow river. liz, thank you. well, each of our 50 states has made up its own rules for election day. some of them have made voting easier. some harder. carter evans has that. >> reporter: in california, early voting has been under way for weeks to accommodate a record 19.4 million registered voters. there's a lot of concern about voter intimidation. what do you tell people? >> i tell people not to let the dialogue about that deter them from going out to vote tomorrow. >> reporter: logan is the reg star in los angeles county, where the only thing you need to bring to the polls is yourself. >> california does not require i.d. to vote. you sign the legal oath that you haven't voted anywhere else and that you are eligible to vote and they'll issue you that ball ballot. >> reporter: but 14 states have new, restrictive voting laws. nebraska and ohio both reduced
7:12 pm
early voting days inch arizona it's now a felony for anyone other than a caregiver or family member to drop off another voter's absentee ballot, and seven states now require photo i.d. at the polls. the brennan center for justice. >> these strict photo identification laws include identification that up to 8% to 12% of americans don't have. all these laws do is put barriers in front of the ballot box for eligible americans. >> reporter: if people start the interveer with voters asking for i.d.s, asking citizenship, what's going to happen? >> we'll contact our friends in law enforcement and ask them to intervene to ensure that voters are not intimidated. >> reporter: and the department of justice plans to deploy more than 500 poll watchers to 28 states to make sure that federal voting rights laws are followed, but, scott, that is actually fewer poll monitors than the department of justice sent out in the 2012 election. >> pelley: carter evans for us tonight.

carter, thanks very much. coming up next on this expanded edition of the "cbs evening news," the election torch is passed to millennials. and later, what the world thinks of all of this.
7:14 pm
pat toomey and donald trump: they're just wrong for the women of pennsylvania. "new fallout for donald trump."
7:15 pm
"should a woman be punshied for having an abortion?" "there has to be some form of punishment." "for the woman?" "yeah, there has to be some form." "i would support legislation in pennsylvania that would ban abortion and i would, suggest that we have penalties for doctors who perform them." pat toomey and donald trump: they're not for you. women vote is responsible for the content of this advertising. >> pelley: elaine quijano of our streaming news service cbsn is following the election through social media and the voters who use it most, millennials. elaine? >> reporter: scott, millennials now make up 41% of eligible voters. that's almost as many baby boomers as there are in this country. for those under 30, more than one third say social media has been their most helpful source during the campaign season. so on election night, this is where we will be tracking what the voters and the candidates are saying throughout the evening. we'll be sharing tweet, photos
7:16 pm
and videos we're getting from voters across the country as well as real-time data on trending topics. for example, one of the most popular election-themed trends on twitter today has been the #electionfinalthoughts. this is a hashtag twitter users have been using to sound off for the last time. take this one, "i think these past months we've done more damage to each other than our future president will supposedly do to our country." another from lora brown, "remember, america, that the world is watching and waiting for your decision. don't embarrass yourselves any further." scott, as far as the youth vote, a recent harvard poll found that over half of young people said they feel fearful about the nation's future. the question is are they so fatherful they may not turn out tomorrow? we'll be watching they're saying and what the candidates themselves are saying across all social media platforms. it's going to be a busy night. >> pelley: elaine quijano from cbsn. elaine, thank you very much.
7:17 pm
now, could the presidential election be left up to the house of representatives? you're going to meet the candidate who is trying to make that happen.

at a neighborhoods a restaurafavorite - a place for a good, family meal. she juggled customers, cooks, waitresses - and never complained. my dad was a police officer walking his beat. i learned from both what it means to be honest, to work hard, and love family. big banks, wall street, special interests - that's who pat toomey's with. in the senate, i'll work for you and your family. i'm katie mcginty, and i approve this message. i alone can fix it! bomb the [bleep] out of 'em. i'd like to punch him in the face. i like people that weren't captured, okay? he's a mexican! she ate like a pig... i moved on her like a [bleep] i did not say that... i love war. yes, including with nukes. blood coming out of her... they're rapists... wrong. there has to be some form of punishment. such a nasty woman. i wanna be unpredictable. ...on 5th avenue and shoot somebody... she's a slob...

donald trump audio only: "i would bomb the sh_t out of them." vo: just one. >> pelley: you probably heard as much as you want to about clinton and trump, but do you know evan mcmillan? he's running for president, and he's got a shot at winning utah. here's ben tracy. >> i'm going to vote for you because i want to take a stand like you are. >> reporter: in his home state of tazawa, evan milk mullin is beloved. >> we rallied on the capitol steps for you. >> reporter: and loathed. >> i call him f-ing mcmullin. >> reporter: utah's votes were considered safe for trump until he jumped in as a third party candidate. why are you running? >> i think hillary clinton is deeply corrupt. she's willing to sacrifice our national security secrets and
7:21 pm
information. donald trump, on the other hand, is somebody who is willing to divide our country, race against race, religion against religion, and he does pose a true danger to our country. >> reporter: mcmullin is on the ballot in just 11 states, but winning utah could block trump's narrow path to the white house. if the race is so close that neither clinton nor trump get 270 electoral votes, the house of representatives picks the next president. if mcmullin wins utah, he would be one of the choices. do you acknowledge that you have basically zero chance of winning? >> that's a strong statement. our odds are very long. they're dependent upon the race being very close. >> reporter: the race took nasty turn when a prominent trump supporter sent out this robo call attacking mcmullin, which the trump campaign has condemned. >> evan is over 40 years old and is not married and doesn't even have a girlfriend. i believe evan is a closet homosexual. >> donald trump is afraid. donald trump is scared of me, is
