"all in" with chris hayes starts right now. tonight on "all in." >> a liar. she is a liar. believe me. she would not be my first choice. that i can tell you. >> the republican nominee attacks his old accusers, literally as new accusers come forward. >> he just put his hands up my skirt. that's not okay. >> tonight, inside the campaign. that spinning conspiracy theiries and stocking damage control. >> we already have substantial evidence to dispute these lies. plu the art of defending trump. >> can you turn the microphone off so i can talk? >> and responding to the first
5:01 pm
lady. >> i don't understand the base you of her claim. >> as a new battle grounl map causes sleepless night at the rnc and the president fine tunes his message to make republicans pay. >> donald trump didn't build thought crazy conspiracy stuff. >> when "all in" starts right now. >> good evening from new york. two more women came forward today laminging unwelcome sexual contact by donald trump, kristin anderson who told the "washington post" trump reached up her skirt in the early 1990s. a former contestant on [ prent who said trump groped her in 2007. er trump strongly denied it. at the exact moment she was telling her story to the press, trump was attacking his growing list of accusers, even suggesting that one of them, jessica leeds, who said he groped her on an airplane in the
5:02 pm
1980s, was not attractive enough to assault. >> i was sitting with him on an airplane. and he went after me on the plane. yeah. i'm going to go after her. believe me, she would not be my first choice, that i can tell you. >> today, to refute the story, the campaign put forth a man claiming to have been a witness on that flight at the age of 17 or 18 sitting in first class. he was described as a form he conservative activist who last made lines the in 2014 when he alleged that he had once supplied politicians with underage boys for tory sex parties. it has been exactly one week since the bombshell that rocked the race. the tape from 2005 featuring him boasting about groping women and getting away with it. >> i'll use some tick tasks in case i starter kissing her. i'm automatically attracted to them. it is like a magnet.
5:03 pm
and when you're a star, do anything. grab them by the -- anything. >> trump downplayed those comments as locker room talk and under pressure at sunday's debate, he said he had never done any of those acts. in the days since, more and more women have gone public with what they say was inappropriate behavior by trump, corroborating his own account of how he treats women. an aspiring model in the 1990s, she encountered him one day at a club. >> i'm talking to my fun who i'm sitting to and across from on my left side. this is very vivid for me. the person on my right who unbeknownst to me was donald trump, put their hand up my skirt. did he touch my vagina through my underwear. absolutely. and as i pushed the hand away and i got up and i turned
5:04 pm
around, and i see these eyebrows, very distinct eyebrows. of donald trump. and i got up and i moved and i continued to talk with my friend. and them, oh, that's donald trump. i was like, ew, he's gross. he just put his hand up my skirt. that's not okay. >> trump's campaign called the allegation phony and ridiculous and said trump strongly denies it. a reserve host said she later reached out to trump for career guidance meeting with hill at trump tower. >> he said he would love to have me work for him mr. trump said he would be coming to los angeles soon and he would contact me. i feel as though my dream of working for mr. trump might come true. as i was about to leave, he again kissed me on the lips. this made me feel nervous and embarrassed. this is not what i wanted or expected. >> according to her, she later met with trump again at a hotel
5:05 pm
in los angeles. >> i assumed we were going to a restaurant in the hotel. instead, i was taken to a bungalow. i was standing in the entryway. to my left was a bedroom and i saw mr. trump's clothes on the bed. i did not see him but he greeted me with hello in a sing-song voice. it sounded like, hello! i stood up and he started kissing me open mouthed as he was pulling me toward him. i walked away and i sat down in a chair. he then asked me to sit next to him. i complied. he then grabbed my shoulder and began kissing me again very aggressively and placed his hand on my breast. i pulled back and walked to another part of the room. he put me in an embrace and i tried push him away. i pushed his chest and put space between us and i am, come on, man, get real. he repeated my words back to me. get real. as he began thrusting his
5:06 pm
genitals. >> she said she made it through dinner with trump without any further contact but she alleges her job prospects were hurt because she rejected his advances. trump said he vaguely remembers her from the a prentice. trump held a rally today where the rowdy crowd felt like a throwback to the primaries, complete with one intense scuffle between a trump supporter. and initially it wasn't clear if trump would address the allegations. >> you know, my people always say, don't talk about it. talk about jobs. talk about the economy. don't worry, your jobs will be coming back to north carolina like you've never seen. who thinks i shouldn't talk? we'll talk jobs. who thinks i should not talk about them? does anyone think that? i agree. >> well, address them he did. calling the women's stories 100% made up and blasting them for coming forward.
5:07 pm
>> it's a phony deal. i have no idea who these womenful are i have no idea. i have no idea. they are all false. they're totally invented. fiction. all 100% totally and completely fabricated. they have no witnesses. there is nobody around. they just come out. some are doing it for probably a little fame. they get some free fame. it's a total set-up. >> trump made a point of criticizing various women's appearance starting with some of his accusers and even getting in a dig at his opponent, hillary clinton. >> when you looked at that horrible woman last night, you said, i don't think so. i don't think so. believe me. she would not be my first choice. that i can tell you. i'm standing at my podium and she walks in front of me. when she walked in front of me, believe me, i was not impressed. >> he blamed the current fury on
5:08 pm
a shadowy conspiracy, t"the new york times" in particular. and carlos. >> now, carlos comes from mexico. he has given many millions of dollars to the clintons and their initiative. so the largest owner of the paper, from mexico. the reporters at the new york times. they're corporate lobbyists. behind closed doors, speak into these international bankers. hillary clinton's pledge to destroy the sovereignty of the united states. the whole thing is one big fix. one big fix. it's one big ugly lie. >> joining me now, msnbc political analyst. affairs correspondent for the nation. and you were at that rally today.
5:09 pm
and i have to say, what was it like there? you could feel the sort of rage kind of coming off the screen. >> you could. although, it was a beautiful amphitheatre. there was a bowl. the pole where there were seats were totally fulfill but the largest part of the amphitheatre is grass. and i was there and saw president obama. he had at least twice as many people there. this was kind of a lackluster crowd if you got beyond that little area i saw the guy get put in a head lock. and interestingly the man who put him in a head lock was young african-american man waving a rainbow flag and a gays for trump t-shirt. >> diversity. i want to blow up all of our stereo types and show the diversity of the trump crowd. he was one of the three or four african-american there's but he was. there it was really, it was very, very weird. i was very struck by the fact that he decided that the way to
5:10 pm
defend himself was to say these women were beneath harassing. but you have to realize, and i wrote about this in my piece. he did say at one point in just about all these cases, they're nonsense. they're not true. just about all these cases is a pretty interesting phrase. i'm not a lawyer but he didn't say all these cases. so that the legal people can gnaw on it. and as we see people come forward, maybe he'll add mit to one of these. >> that it took three times to be questioned at the debate to deny it which is what i would imagine, given your first opportunity to deny, you would take it. >> michelle, you've been watching this. what would it mean to go after the people, the women accusing her for anyone that is contemplating whether or not to come forward. >> yeah. i imagine there are a lot of women who unfortunately have been sexually abused by donald trump who are watching his
5:11 pm
speeches and seeing him attack these women and say, i don't want to go through this. it's not worth it. i think, which is what you reapplied. with that is the strategic to make them come out. to put an end to it. but there are women. they're having the opposite effect. they're thinking, i'm going to come forward. the guy is lying. i need stand up and do something for my country. it is having the opposite effect for some. but i think it is probably really scary for some women who don't want to be called a liar and don't want to be told they're ugly on national television. that's what he's saying. they're too unattractive to sexually assault and he's smearing them. >> and there is a woman, the from the palm beach post, reported on her, saying that trump had groped her. she is now leaving the country. she said we feel back lash of the trump supporters. it scares us and intimidates us. we are in fear for our lives. that was in the friday interview with the palm beach post. sort of the first casualty.
5:12 pm
that doesn't 19 accusation is true but that's the cost for one individual. i was reading your piece. it was interesting to hear what folks were saying in the crowd about these allegations. br whether they believed them or not. >> yeah. i ran into one woman. it was very sad to me. she sort of mocked it and said, we gals, we talk amongst ourselves. we trash talk amongst ourselves. that's true. but this is not trash talk about sex. these women say he grabbed them and she confessed that she's a survivor of sexual assault but she think that's it was, she said back in the day, if a billionaire came up to me and wanted to grab me, i would have wanted him to. so there was that. a lot of people that i talked to really don't believe the women. they really have sort of again, this is the hard core. they really bought this line that these women are coming forward for fame and fortune. and as michelle makes the point, you know, that could not be further from the truthful there is nothing positive really about
5:13 pm
coming forward and being humiliated and being told you're too ugly to be molested. there is nothing positive in this experience for these women. they're doing it out of a sense of duty to their country and perhaps some therapeutic value, i think telling truth is always helpful. sometimes helpful. i can't even say it is always helpful. the notion that people are doing this for fun and fame and fortune is crazy and speaks to the sad view of women. >> the problem with a lots of conservatives have, the timing with all of this. it seems as though it all came at the exact same time. when trump mentions there is a conspiracy to ruin his campaign, a lot of his core, conservative trump supporters believe that. but if you look at the polls that have been taken since the audio of trump and billy bush leaked. it doesn't look good for trump. you look in pennsylvania. a key state that trump needs on win. hillary is up by 9 points. michigan, hillary is up by 11. in wisconsin, up by 7.
5:14 pm
this is after the audio. so there is an effect of this. there is damage that it is causing and his path to the presidency is narrowing. >> there is also the fact, in term of the timing. i think a big trigger was the fact that he flatly denied it on the record at the debate. sort of waving a red flag for anyone who is refute that denial with allegations. there is one part. i want to play, finally here. this part about barack obama from donald trump at the rally today was so odd. and it seemed like of a piece with this kind of threatening, this sub textual threat. take listen. >> obama is an incompetent. an incompetent president. he doesn't know what he's doing. he is out campaigning all day long. he is talking about me like he knows me. i don't know him. he doesn't know me. and why doesn't some woman maybe
5:15 pm
come up and say what they say falsely about me? they could say about him. they could say about it anybody. >> what was that about? >> it's, it sounded like a threat some of sort to me. minimum, it was basically, you know, encouraging women to come forward. who knows? at worst it was possibly foreshadowing something. it was really, it is so incredible. when you think about this president, you don't have to like him. there is never been anything like that about him. he has conducted himself in such an amazing manner. so it is so dirty on so many levels. it really is. >> dirty on so many levels. that's an epitaph for 2016. thank you both. i'm joined now by gabe sherman. msnbc did incredible reporting on roger ailes. i have to talk about this striking sill larts here, which are, it is almost unfolding
5:16 pm
identically to what happened with roger ailes. >> that's why i don't buy it, this idea of a conspiracy. the idea that this is planned. no. women start to come forward once there is a critical mass, other women want to tell their story. we've seen it in the ailes came where gretchen karlsson filed her lawsuit. then i reported on six women who shared episodes of sexual harassment in the past and then more and more women come forward. this isn't some -- based on what i can tell, some concerted effort. this is the way these scandals play out. >> the point is there is a natural ebb that people don't want to be the first. when there is a first ask a second and a third, then they feel like if i've the fourth and the fifth and sixth, seventh, eighth, people won't dismiss me. >> i want to back up to some of my reporting. inside trump world. in 2014 when he was manning on run. he told his small circle of advisers that women would be a problem. he did not elaborate. it is not a stretch to say trump
5:17 pm
would have women problems. he said it on howard stern and these public forums. but this is always going to be an issue. the fact it comes out this late. his problem with women has been there from the beginning. >> yeah. he's been on the record in materials of his views about women. my colleague chris matthews, he said can you imagine the women problems i would have. >> so it is a case where these women felt brave enough and emboldened enough to come forward. but this is not out of caring for who donald trump is. >> are ailes and trump still in contact? do you know the relationship? >> basically ailes and trump have a personal relationship. ailes has been phased out the best that i can tell. he hand had any formal part of debate prep as reported by kellyanne, reince priebus will be there this weekend. so ailes has been edged out. he has a personal relationship
5:18 pm
with trump. they speak on the phone. he is not in the bunk we are trump strategizing. >> it does seem like bannon, a very colorful figure, if i can use that term. who is the ceo of the campaign and ran breitbart. this does really sound like him. the globalist international banker. >> it was co-written by him and steve miller, the former policy adviser. bannon is really driving this message this is a war against the elites. and you include hillary clinton interesting republican establishment, and the media. you have all of those three. it is basically, a three-front war they're fighting. >> all right. thank you. coming up, the very odd and awkward defenses of donald trump from his surrogates. first, president obama's new message about trump. you own. this you have to pay for it. i'll speak with one of the president's former speech writers. it's easy to love your laxative... ...when that lax loves your body back.

5:20 pm
5:21 pm
a lot of elected official have just stood by. a lot of house members, senators, they stood by. and they didn't say anything. because it was a way to rile up their base. and it was a way to mount opposition to whatever we were trying to do. and over time, because a lot of the hard core republican voters were just hearing this stuff over and over again, they started to believe it. and that's what allowed donald trump to suddenly emerge. donald trump didn't build all this crazy conspiracy stuff. and some republicans who knew better stood by silently and
5:22 pm
even during the course of this campaign, didn't say anything. i mean, i know that some of them now are walking away. but why did it take you this long? >> that was president obama speaking earlier today many cleveland. making no bones about blaming republicans about donald trump. a pretty clear break from the clinton strategy, at least up to now. which is primarily paint trump as an outlier. joining me now, the former speech writer for president obama. i have always been struck by how uncomfortable the president seems making partisan arguments. making the straight argument that democrats are better than the republicans. he would avoid that almost at all costs. except in election mode. in some ways, it makes him a pretty good messenger on this. >> yeah. you saw the speech today along with what you played. he also got a round of applause for the first amendment and due
5:23 pm
process. it is not that hard in this election to make a partisan case when one of your artisan arguments is in favor of the first amendment. i was thinking about this before we spoke. sometime you watch an else of chopped. and somebody undercooked a risotto and somebody overcooked it and you're not sure what happened. we're at a point where one candidate overcooked and it the other candidate chopped his finger, bled all over the board and the judges can't eat it because it has been poisoned. so we're at the point where we can go for extra credit here. we're at the convention. you really want to drive a wedge between more moderate republican think. we're like, screw you. you nominated this monster. >> you know, i hadn't thought of
5:24 pm
it in the chopped terms so much. >> i don't know why you hadn't. it is a very objection analogy. >> it is what you speck there a straight shooter. you get this sense that basically, a deal was being offered from the convention up until last week. also the white house, reject donald trump and he won't go after you. if you distance yourself and she tried to separate out paul ryan, she tried to separate all these other folks, name dropping john mccain. that's the message. >> absolutely. they weren't strong enough to run away from him when he was a racist and a demagogue and lying left and right. but there's no sin like losing. so now they've had enough. by the way, paul ryan is still on board. he is still voting for this guy.
5:25 pm
how much do you want to cut the top marginal tax rate? you're going i know what this genuine monster. >> here's my favorite category of republican. these the four individuals, two senators, two members of congress, who endorsed donald trump. unendorsed him after the tape and then reendorsed him a few days after, after the tape. doug fisher and john -- deb fisher and john thune. can any of them go for the very rare endorse, unendorse, endorse, unendorse. >> as a matter of personal and moral responsibility. they go no longer no longer no longer support donald trump. ridiculous. paul ryan invented a new category of thing called endorse but won't defend. like that's impressive. like that settles it, man. what are you doing? and i get all these people make excuses for paul ryan.
5:26 pm
he is in a difficult position. who cares? there's no excuse for supporting this person. he is terrible. he was terrible before a wave after wave of accusation of sexual assaults. what is going on? by the way, by the way, a lot of these people were like, i'm going on write in mike pence. i'm going to write in huckleberry finn. really make a point. okay. they were equally bad six months ago. and we haven't learned anything new about hillary clinton. who she is, that's baked into the stock price. every day with donald trump is a new horror and still they krnlt bring themselves to do right thing. i'm bothered by it. >> i can see that. you about you remain a straight shooter. thank you so much. coming up, new polling shows hillary clinton. when you have something you love,

5:28 pm
this was not just a lewd conversation. this was not just locker room banter. this was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior. >> the if he can of that speech continues to reverberate. the remarks have been turned into a new web video for hillary clinton as michelle obama proves to be one of the hillary clinton's most effective surrogates. meanwhile, mike pence was asked to defend his running mate from the charge. he was speaking openly about sexually predatory behavior. >> i don't understand the basis of her claim. >> you don't believe his conduct was sexually predatory.
5:29 pm
>> i've already spoken about my concern about the language he used in that 11-year-old video. what he has made it clear is that was talk, regrettable talk to his part. but that there were no actions. and he's categorically denied these latest allegations. >> team trump with a variety of tactics. to suggesting the women accusing trump of groping them are all lawyers. when all else fails, just ask for an interviewer's microphone to be cut. >> are you saying these women are lying? >> that's your characterization. because you need characterize it that way to try to make never bad guy. >> you just. -- >> stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. can you turn her microphone off, please. >> no. >> the republican establishment unraveling over trump continues.

5:31 pm
5:32 pm
5:33 pm
i know this election has taken some dark, sometimes some very dark turns, which is exactly why i think it is important that we take a step back and reflect on what this election is ultimately all about. beneath all the ugliness lies a long running debate between two governing philosophies. one in keeping with our founding prips like freedom and equality. and another, another seeks to replace them. >> paul ryan beaming in today
5:34 pm
from earth two where the republican party has not nominated donald trump. he made no mention of trump in a q & a. and he dodged questions from the press on his way out. the thaks republican party leaders as new york times reports, they are calling on the committee to cut ties with trump. and reince priebus, according to multiple people, has said he fears adrift, fearing trump is headed for disaster and told one long time associate he was having sleepless nights. joining me from the center for equal opportunity. i have to say, the ryan speech was sort of a fascinating little message in a bottle from an alternate universe. but forget about trump. it is not even trump the personality. it is ideologically he doesn't espouse the things that paul ryan says the republican party stands for. >> absolutely.
5:35 pm
i think it is quite appalling what is happening within the republican party. and i can tell you as someone who is a long lived republican. someone who has worked for presidents in the republican party. who has tried to elect republican candidates. i am deeply ashamed of what is happening within my party and the lack of courage being demonstrate by too many people in the party. >> brian boyer wrote a great piece months ago describing trump as famous experiment. they're told to shock folks. and tactors are acting more and more in pain and the director is amping it up. it turns out you can get people to do all sorts of morally owedious things because they're basically taking orders. at some point, there is a moral breaking point you would think for more politicians than there have been. >> i think part of problem,
5:36 pm
chris, the republican leaders are very intimidated by the trump supporters. and this has been going on since the very beginning. since the primary season when trump was showing a lot of support among voters that don't normally show up to republican primaries, who have not been part of the primary base. they were hoping they could get people to come aboard and it didn't work out well. i think what they are really afraid of, is that they are somehow going to be punished. and that's what trump says all the time. i mean, he has spent as much time attacking the republican party as he has hillary clinton. in fact, we tone hear a lot about hillary clinton or certainly not about her policies, in part because trump himself cannot articulate his own policies. i can tell you more about his tax policy, i would vent you are
5:37 pm
to say, than donald trump could tell you. >> we hear nothing about her policies. i was just listening to the rally before i came here. it is corrupt e-mail. there is very little on her proposal to fix obamacare doesn't work because -- that's not happening. >> right. >> well, i just think that it is really, i wrote my first anti-trump piece for national publication back in july 2015. and i, it was titled, the national review online and it was titled stop defending trump. that message, i still want to shout it loud and clear. they have to stop defending this man. >> do you think there's long term damage here? i watch mike pence on cbs this morning, essentially hinting there will be a big dump on these women accusing him. essentially being a fixer for donald trump.
5:38 pm
and i can't imagine that's going to be erasable from his record. >> in fact, what they came up with was blame a mexican. the chinese aren't to blame, then mexicans are to blame or the international bankers, and i think we know who they mean by that. i have to tell you. i was on your show a few days ago touting mike pence as an alternative to trump. after watching him this week, i'm not so sure festival doesn't have the moral courage to be able to stand up and now with these attacks on the women. and acting as if he possibly couldn't have attacked them because they're not attractive enough. i've been in politics 40 years. i have never seen anything like this. >> we have yet to give everyone on the party about the relative levels of attractiveness and
5:39 pm
thus plausibility. >> is the trump business empire suffering amid the disastrous campaign? men. 80% try to eat healthy, yet up to 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day men's gummies. complete with key nutrients plus b vitamins to help convert food into fuel. one a day. i use what's already inside me

[ sirens blearing ] i would bomb the [ beep] out of them. i want to be unpredictable. i love war. the thought of donald trump with nuclear weapons scares me to death. it should scare everyone. i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. here you go.picking up for kyle. you wouldn't put up with part of a pizza. um. something wrong? so when it comes to pain relievers, why put up with just part of a day? you want the whole thing? yes, yes! live whole. not part. aleve.

nice hotel. under budget and ahead of schedule. isn't that nice in. >> do you remember that really weird morning when many. whole thing happened? it seems like a lifetime ago. donald trump has no qualms with mixing business and politics. it was last month that he used his birther press spectacle. he held a press conference at a scotland press conference the day after brexit. the super tuesday press conference in which christie looked like a long. the nice hotel trump was boasting about in d.c. may not be doing so well after all. the new york magazine puts it, even with a prime location near the white house, spanky interiors and aggressive promotion by the candidate himself, empty rooms have forced the hotel to reduce rates during the peak season. it is more than $750 a night biffle some estimates, last
5:49 pm
weekend room could be had for under $500 per night. at a time when rival hotels were sold out weeks ahead of time. they were soult sold out because of world bank meetings. for the hotel to have a vacancy is like having empty rooms when the super bowl was in town. so trump's politics may be hurting his brand and his brand may be hurting his politics. there is increasing evidence that he may turn red states blue and flip the senate and democrats. we'll talk about that, next.

texas hasn't gone since jimmy carter in 1976. he is up only 4 points in in. the state in which his running mate is the sitting governor. that's the lead within the margin of error. barack obama won narrowly but it is normally a solidly red state. nationally he is down by 7 points. and fwhoe longer have to look at polling data. we can look at what is actually happening in the ground in terms of voter registration. for instance, the florida democratic party has submitted about 488,000 voter registration forms while republicans have submitted roughly 60,000. and data on early voting, six which of are battleground states shows the party affiliation of early voters favoring democrats in five of them.
5:54 pm
it is up in four of the seven states, compared to 2012. as has been predicted, the ground operation of the clinton campaign is so far pretty outperforming the nonexistent one. >> for the guard yankee, the former national press secretary. >> let me start with you. you know this stuff really well. what is jumping out ought about the combination of the early data we have and the polling date about the state of where things are? >> well, it is where donald trump needs on expand the map and it is stead it is shrinking on him. indiana is within the margin of error. utah is tied. there is a real possibility that donald trump comes in third there. what is really jumping out at me was the baldwin wallace poll in ohio.
5:55 pm
where hillary clinton is now up 4. and ohio had been get for donald trump. the last seven out of nine polls have swung to hillary. the movement in that poll came from his coalition. a month ago when he was up 17 with men. he is only up 3 a month ago he was up with independents. he is only getting 78% of the republican support. so he is who'sing the coalition. and even in really close swing states. >> and that segues to one of the interesting dynamics. trump is losing coalition. so you see very close races there. you have the senate candidate outperforming in new hampshire where the encouple been kell a i don't think, ayotte.
5:56 pm
kelly mcginlty is tied. so far, republicans are managing to essentially hold their own against the downward pressure of the last week of trump news. do you think that will last? >> it is a little early to say. there are some republican incumbents who have been successful at running these parallel races. where they focus more on their own states and kept a comfortable distance from donald trump and it has worked. we don't yet have the information from the real impact. not just the tape with the the assaults on women with you also these accusers coming forward and saying that donald trump assaulted them. we don't have any polling to 73 there is been any shift. i think what they should be concerned. one is what is the likelihood that undecided voters break to hillary clinton? they're more likely to break to
5:57 pm
her than donald trump. as well as what is likely, the turnout among republicans given this civil war between donald trump and his own party. i keep generally, my feeling of the eek will lib reup will be between mccain and romney. it will keep pulling the race in that direction. any major nominees. donald trump seems intent on testing that. what is your sense on if he stays in this us against the world mode? >> yeah. i don't doubt that's true. sort of in the support number. what i'm really interested is the turnout number. so even in the senate races. if write a republican senate
5:58 pm
candidate, i would be concerned about the slipping? but are people going to turn out. there is no operation. if rnc is pausing on their victory fund in the wake of these revelations. that has huge possibilities. i think all throughout the fluctuations of the polling. a veteran of the obama organizing world. something they put a tremendous am of effort and pride. you can see pictures of making call in colorado. this is something they know how to do. even when polling was bad after the two week of 9/11. >> that's what's so critical here. it is not just that the clintons have the ground game.
5:59 pm
republicans wanting to invest. and there is no operation to really save him when he is in fact failing. i think that's why you see him already try to frame the narrative of a potential loss. where he is saying the polls are rigged. the media is conspiring with the clinton campaign to defeat him. that's donald trump acknowledging that he is losing. that's terrifying because who knows what kind of a revolt that might cause. >> there are some saying we'll make this as nasty as possible so we depress democratic voter turnout. >> i think that's been the republican strategy for a while. i think people will turn out. i think people understand. i think he is trying to set up his loss here for trump tv and the plan going forward is to set up his future business
6:00 pm
enterprises. not political. >> that's increasingly the way it is looking. who knows? there are so many twists and turns. the rachel maddow show starts right now. >> do you know what the next hour for me will bring? some whiskey which i earned. >> i have a whole bar in my office and you're welcome to stop in. yeah. thanks, chris. and thanks to you at home for staying with us this hour. if you're drinking with chris hayes over the course of the next hour, have one for me. my weekend doesn't start yet. the last time there was a national election was two years ago, of course. in the 2014 mid-term. republicans were already in control of the house. heading into that election. but they did great in 2014. even though they were already in control of the house. they picked up 13 additional seats in that election.
